Is the pope Catholic?

Does he believe in the Real Presence?

I encountered the same lack of teaching from my priest recently when talking about similar clearly Eucharistic passages which gave opportunities to teach the Real Presence but where he chose to teach other aspects eg. “Feeding on God’s Word”.

Jesus is really truly present and alive in the Blessed Sacrament! He has repeatedly confirmed this in word, miracle and other signs. This is not an option to believe. It’s the greatest honour for our unworthy souls. Those who do not preach maybe do not see the Crisis of lack of faith and equally do not see “The Solution”. The immense power of this Sacrament means Satan works really hard on this one.

By the way, I’ve worked out (God or Blessed Mother gave me to think…) that at the slightest temptation or doubt/thought first entering your head, stop and pray 3 Glory Bes immediately and then implore briefly God’s help – Gods wisdom will quickly, if not instantly, drive the thought away!

Wish I figured that out before! Could have saved a lot of struggles!

Anyway, bless yourself then read this story.

Francis provides Protestant Explanation of the Eucharist

Pope Provides Protestant Explanation of John 6
On Sunday, August 23, 2015

… Today Pope Francis managed to explain today’s Gospel reading without a single reference to transubstantiation. In fact, he went one better. He said that what Jesus meant by that flesh and blood talk was the “sacrifice of his very life.” That’s right. It was not that bread and wine would actually become His Precious Body and Blood. Forget that. Our Lord was merely challenging people with the fact of his coming death, His “failure” as Messiah.
… Pope Francis does violence to the text, because he ignores where Jesus says: “He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood abides in me, and I in him.” John 6:56. How does one reconcile this with the claim that Jesus is merely referring to his death on the cross? Immediately after Jesus says this, John records the following in v. 60: “Many of his disciples, when they heard it, said, ‘This is a hard saying; who can listen to it?'”
Pope Francis goes on to talk about walking, “always on a journey,” in some nice but not particularly Catholic language. You will be glad to know you are not “chained” to Jesus, but “profoundly free.”
… Did he deny transubstantiation and the traditional Catholic interpretation of this passage? No. But when he took it upon himself to preach from it, he didn’t affirm it, either. A Lutheran or an Anglican or a United Church of Christ member or a Presbyterian could have heard this without a single objection. Perhaps that’s the point. [indeed it is!]”

Pope Francis Misleads on Real Presence Again

The next day
“… Pope Francis insisted then, as he did during his most recent angelus message, that the “bread” relates not to the Eucharist, but to Jesus’ death on the cross.
But Pope Francis explained that, “knowing he will have to die on the cross for us, Jesus identifies himself with the bread broken and shared, and it becomes for him the “sign” of the sacrifice that awaits him.”
Interestingly, here is how a footnote from a popular Protestant study Bible, the English Standard Version, deals with v. 6:51. (“I am the living bread which came down from heaven; if any one eats of this bread, he will live for ever; and the bread which I shall give for the life of the world is my flesh.”) Since there is strong risk of confusion, what immediately follows is the Protestant explanation.
6:51 living bread. The “bread” Jesus gives is his flesh (a reference to Jesus’ death on the cross). Jesus’ statement intermingles physical and spiritual truth. Jesus is not talking about literal “bread,” but he is the true “living bread” in the sense that those who believe in him have their spiritual hunger satisfied. He becomes this spiritually satisfying “bread” by sacrificing his own physical body in his death on the cross, and in that sense he can say that this spiritual bread is my flesh.

Note the same misdirection by Pope Francis and the Protestant study Bible. Both identify Jesus’ “bread” as his flesh on the cross.
• Pope Francis: “knowing he will have to die on the cross for us, Jesus identifies himself with the bread broken and shared, and it becomes for him the “sign” of the sacrifice that awaits him.”
• Protestant study Bible note: “The “bread” Jesus gives is his flesh (a reference to Jesus’ death on the cross).

So, once again, Pope Francis avoids Catholic content and preaches a bland message to which few Protestants could object. Why is it too much for Catholics to hope for the Pope to boldly preach Catholic teaching? …

The Pope further diluted understanding of the Real Presence by making this Protestant-like closing statement. In it, “He who eats this bread” is a metaphor for “living in communion with Jesus on this earth.”
In conclusion, the Pope recalled Jesus’ words, “He who eats this bread will live forever”. He then explained that by living in communion with Jesus on this earth we can look forward to the voice of the Risen Lord who calls us when we finally close our eyes.
… What does the Pope believe? …

Archbishop Anthony Fisher keeps up the pressure

As mentioned in previous post, Archbishop Anthony Fisher O.P. delivered a lecture on 2nd July at St Mary’s Cathedral College Hall. His topic was

“Same-Sex ‘Marriage’: Evolution or Deconstruction of Marriage and the Family?” Defence of the Faith Lecture, Order of Malta NSW Branch
Picture1

His introduction sums up the stance he took, which was to convince everybody, not just those with Faith. He emphasis shows his viewpoint – that it is not “a done deal” – that we must fight, and fighting he is. See previous blog with details.

“The campaign to redefine marriage has recently gained such momentum – with now three and soon four bills before the Commonwealth Parliament – that many think it is inevitable; this can leave those with misgivings feeling that they are already losers in a done deal. Some think it’s the inexorable progress of liberty and equality – which leaves the doubters ‘on the wrong side of history’. In this context supporters of classical marriage are presumed to have no real arguments to offer. So tonight I want to offer some reasons – not decrees from on high or from the past, not expressions of hatred or prejudice – but reasons I hope anyone can understand. I also hope you find these reasons persuasive and helpful in proclaiming and witnessing to true marriage among your families, friends and colleagues. But even if you disagree with me on this matter, I hope tonight’s talk will help you understand why Australian law has always held, and many people still hold, that marriage is for people of opposite sex.

I will examine five common slogans in this debate – that it’s all about justice, that sexual differences don’t matter, that it’s all about love, that it’s all about the numbers and that it doesn’t affect me. Along the way I will be offering some reasons for preserving the classical understanding of marriage rather than redefining it to include same-sex ‘marriage’ (SSM)[1].”

It is a bit long, but it is broken up into parts, with interesting quotes, diagrams and cartoons. It is a MUST to read.

Laudati Si: An Inconvenient Truth

Following is an article by a fellow crusade member on “Laudate Si”
‘Next up from Rome: Al Gore, the prophet of the environment, to be canonized for his work in evangelising global warming.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/An_Inconvenient_Truth

So in this encyclical of Francis, who desires to build “a poor church for the poor”,
what about the unborn, the “poorest of the poor”, as Benedict XVI put it,
those that live in the environment of the womb and are in danger of abortion?

Where is the encyclical on abortion and the culture of death?
Where are the encyclicals on the massive apostasy and the almost complete collapse of the church?
What about an encyclical on the the moral and spiritual collapse of the western world, sodomy, divorce, and the collapse of the family?

The inconvenient truth is that
this encyclical is a POLITICAL NON-SPIRITUAL SOCIAL STUDIES OPINION PIECE
that serves as a DISTRACTION from the real SPIRITUAL issues of our time.

By their fruits you shall know them.

The priorities of those in Rome reveal
who their true masters are
and what their agenda is,
now clearly united to united nations,
the organisation founded by masonry,
which is dedicated to saving the creation of the environment
by destroying God’s greatest creation,
the creation of the human being,
who are the inheritors of the Kingdom of God,
which was lost by the master of the United Nations,
when he said, “I will not serve”.’

Laudate Si and Climate change Versus Prophecies.

Remnant clergy on the Biblical False Prophet site linked up this new “encyclical” to prophecies. See full article at: http://biblefalseprophet.com/2015/06/20/the-gaia-cyclical-plan-was-prophesied-indicating-the-coming-of-the-antichrist/

God the Father: The antichrist is now ready to reveal himself
Wednesday, August 7th, 2013 @ 18:50
… The antichrist is now ready to reveal himself and his plan is this. He will wait until wars rage everywhere. Then he will step in and create a false peace in the state of Israel by joining them with Palestine in an unlikely alliance. [N.B. notice how the Vatican has officially recognized the Palestinian state as the first step]

… Very soon he will become involved with philanthropy and he will link up with the main world banks to create a new, powerful, financial institution. Many businesses and political leaders will become embroiled with his many plans. Soon a new monstrosity will be created, in the name of kick-starting the world’s economy. This will be the new Babylon, the centre of all power, from which the world’s elite and rich will trade. It will be seen to be the source of great news, so that people will benefit in every way from jobs, to the homes they live in and to the food they feed their families with.

All glory will surround the antichrist . Then he will, along with the false prophet, create a global partnership, which will be presented as the greatest humanitarian initiative. The world will applaud this new Babylon and everyone will clamour to try and gain even just a tiny foothold within its centre.

The new Babylon, all will be told, is to glorify the great one, to promote the environment, to embrace mother earth and to rid the world of poverty from the riches, which will pour from its vile mouth. [N.B. that is what Laudato Si is all about, to prepare the world for this plan]

When this takes place, the Hand of My intervention will turn the world on its axis [literally – at the Warning]. I Am not going to stand by without warning My children of the consequences of embracing this abomination, created in the depths of Hell and inflicted upon humanity. My great signs will be given to show all those who embrace and accept this insult in My Holy Name. …

The only danger to humanity is man himself
Thursday, January 1st, 2015 @ 23:50

… With so much confusion in the world and amongst My Church on earth, the challenge for humanity is to be able to differentiate between right and wrong in the Eyes of God. But, for many Christians, they will be drawn away from Me by a new global form of evangelisation, which will focus exclusively on politics. [N.B. Laudto Si talks much about politics and government]. Instead of being encouraged to remain loyal to Me and trusting in all that I Am, you will be pulled away from Me. You must never confuse My Word with the aspirations of a secular world. [N.B. the secular world has accolades for Laudato Si] I have always made it clear to humanity, through My Father’s Book, of the dangers in doing so. A secular world serves only its own needs and men of power, ambition and selfish aspirations create the rules, which govern it.

So much misinformation [global warming] has been spread in relation to the environment, when only God can dictate how the earth behaves. Man may harm and damage the earth but he can never destroy it, for all these things are in the Hands of God.

A lack of trust in God means that man believes he has control over the universe. The foolish man thinks that his actions can change God’s Laws. The wise man knows that God is All Powerful and as long as He is revered, and His Laws adhered to, then man’s survival will be secured. The survival of the earth has nothing to do with mortal man. Only God has the power to control the air that you breathe; the water you drink and the ability to sustain life. The only danger to humanity is man himself. [N.B. compare that to Laudato Si] …

The Great Tribulation
Monday, December 20th, 2010 @ 10:00
… As these global disasters commence, with dramatic changes in weather patterns – which have already begun in a mild form – they will be seen as the result of global warming. Yes, mankind has damaged the Earth, in a very ugly manner, but these disasters will have nothing to do with climate change. …

Sexual Immorality will lead you to Hell
Tuesday, April 19th, 2011 @ 23:50
… Many will see ecological catastrophes as the Hand of God. Others will say that they are a sign of the end times; while others will say that it all has to do with global warming. But what is most important now at this time is to understand this. Sin, if it escalates to unprecedented levels, will cause destruction in your orderly lives anyway. But when it intensifies to the current levels experienced and witnessed by all of you in the world today then you can be assured that such catastrophes will be the Hand of God at work. …

The rains, the floods and the destruction of crops to come will be the result of a chastisement from Heaven.
Saturday, August 11th, 2012 @ 20:10
My dearly beloved daughter the rains which will fall all over the world represent the deluge of tears which fall from My Eyes as I watch God’s children wander so far off the path of eternal salvation.

The rains, the floods and the destruction of crops to come will be the result of a chastisement from Heaven.
The valleys of tears will spring up everywhere and it will be blamed on climate change and global warming. But this is not so. .
