The Christmas address of (Pope) Francis on December 21 to the Roman Curia can be found at: http://www.vatican.va/content/francesco/en/speeches/2019/december/documents/papa-francesco_20191221_curia-romana.htm
In his address, the FP/PF quotes popes and saints but everything he says is twisted and taken out of context or he does so to advance a hidden agenda. His address is riddled with the word “change” (30 times) and references to “humanism”.
His true goals are humanistic: not just to “change” but to get rid of Faith in God altogether.
A few of the FP/PF’s statements:
(Comments from Remnant Child of Mary and Remnant Survivor are in red)
“behind every form of rigidity lies some kind of imbalance…” (If being rigid means to be faithful to Christ and his teachings- then yes, all Christians faithful to the 10 commandments and to Christ’s teachings are mentally unstable- according to FP. In actual fact, remaining true is the only form of sanity.)
“inevitability and necessity of change in the Church” (Both are these assertations are lies. All that Christ asks is that we stay true. God and His teachings are not changeable or in need of change. Read these scriptures: Psalm 119:89
Your word, O LORD, is everlasting; it is firmly fixed in the heavens.
Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look at the earth below; for the heavens will vanish like smoke, the earth will wear out like a garment, and its people will die like gnats. But My salvation will last forever, and My righteousness will never fail.)
“Brothers and sisters, Christendom no longer exists”
(Not if he has his way!! Is that meant to make us feel that Christianity is no longer powerful or important? In actual fact Christendom refers to the worldwide Christian community. Of course, it still exists but he (the False Prophet) would like to make us believe that it does not!)
“… tradition does not preserve ashes; the nostalgia of fundamentalists (is) to return to the ashes.”
(In reality, all faithful Catholics hold onto “tradition.” In 2 Thessalonians 2: 14- 15 St Paul teaches us to stand firm:
…14”To this He called you through our gospel, so that you may share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. 15Therefore, brothers, stand firm and cling to the traditions we taught you, whether by speech or by letter.” He equates tradition with fundamentalism and nostalgia- and speaks of it in a derogatory way. He actually is inferring that the fundamental or main teachings and traditions are now ‘ashes’! Well actually, any true Catholic is a “fundamentalist” because it means that we know the important teachings which underpin our Faith and remain faithful to them. We are not persuaded by strange or other doctrines. This is a badge of honour and a necessity- to not to be swayed from the Truth!)
“...change …would become something more human and more Christian. Change would still take place, but beginning with man as its centre: an anthropological conversion.”
(The centre of our Faith is Christ. If man were at the centre, then we would have no Faith in Christ. In fact this would be “Humanism” and is related to all the “isms”: Communism, Relativism, Marxism…Our Faith and the Church’s teachings as handed down by Jesus Christ and the Apostles make up the fullness of Faith. There is nothing more Christian, nothing better and nothing that is more needed than for humans to faithfully respond to what Christ taught us. Man at the centre offends God and this sort of heresy or ‘conversion’ would lead people into believing that men are gods.)
“.. there is a need to be wary of the temptation to rigidity.
(How about: to be wary of the temptation to heresy?)
“A rigidity born of the fear of change, which ends up erecting fences and obstacles on the terrain of the common good, (ie. Marxist)turning it into a minefield of incomprehension and hatred.”
(Change is not feared by any true Catholic or Christian. Change is constantly expected of us until we become saints and fully reflect the glory of God. The only obstacles we erect are those which are defences against those who wish to steal our souls. We do not bend towards sin and urge others to stand firm in the Faith as well. If that makes us rigid, so be it! There is a need to be wary of the temptation to heresy and sin, of a rigidity towards God, not anything else.)
The FP twists everything. He keeps repeating the same words – rigidity, traditionalists, fundamentalists, change …it is a type of brainwashing. If he says it often enough, people will be won over. After all, they won’t want to be seen as rigid, averse to change, or reluctant to embrace new ideas- or other creeds!
“…You will betray Me; deny Me and embrace My enemies, for you will be so caught up in the new religion – the secular humanism, which will come as a wolf dressed in sheep’s clothing to devour you – that I will be forgotten. Your ambition and desire to please those enemies of Mine, who will rise to great heights, within the echelons of My Church – will blind you to the Truth. This will be the cause of your demise and all those whom you will pull into grave error.
It is when My Church turns My Teachings upside down; inside out and back to front, that you will know that the time has come for the antichrist to take centre stage. Those who worship the beast will sign their own death warrant and will hand over their free will, a Sacred Gift from God, to My enemies. Once you swear an oath to this new false doctrine, you will be guilty of crucifying Me and your punishment will be severe. …” (30 June 2014 @ 11:50pm)

Luckily, we have this alternate form of communication i.e. the internet (“Secret Channel” – see message below) from faith-filled journalists, priests and bloggers who help us to see the truth; … ‘alternate’ as in a different form of communication from the official mainstream media. It is a lack of information and blatantly evil propaganda through the mainstream media that has caused so many people all over the world to be deceived and brainwashed about what is happening.
Jesus warns the media and explains this to us in the Book of Truth:
To the media, I have this to say. As communicators to the world, the arrogance you display today will turn to despair when your word is no longer heard. You too will soon realize the importance of prayer when mankind turns from the Truth. Your word today can still represent the important independent truth. But this gift will now be taken away from you. Instead, the Truth will now be hidden from mankind through the dictatorship you are about to witness during the Great Tribulation. Then your word will be denied, just as My Word is.
The “Secret Channel” of Communication
No one will listen to you because the only word delivered to mankind, which will have any impact, will be by the Secret Channel delivered to the world through technology. You will find yourself in the wilderness and will end up trying to communicate to a disbelieving world, just as I do at this point in time, when your word is not heard….” (01 January 2011 @ 02:00am)

PHOENIX, Arizona, January 2, 2020 (LifeSiteNews)
- The following headline in Catholicism Pure & Simple posted on January 3, 2020 hits the nail on the head and uncovers its true intentions with a succinct explanation:
The author states: “This is a creed of postmodernism, and it looks like a formal declaration of war upon the orthodoxy and the Catholicity of the Faith. …
“These attempts to destroy the very core of what it is to be a human person created in hope for salvation by Almighty God cannot possibly succeed, but the damage that is being done to the Faithful and the Faith by the proclamation of such nonsense from the highest step of the ecclesial authority is incalculable in extent.
Take note that this “the common good” is pure Marxist terminology, redolent of the “Common Purpose” lobby group, the UN, and of straightforward Freemasonry. It seeks to crush the individual in the name of some collective and indeed collectivist ideology of so-called “progress”. …
…it is a text proclaiming a deep ideological division between an “us” and a “them” — it is foully schismatic in purpose and in nature, which therefore constitutes a willful and deliberate declaration of a heresy as that is the very core definition of what Heresy is.
