Yesterday morning, I received an email from a dear friend and fellow comrade in Jesus’ Mission to Save Souls. The heading of his email was: Pope Francis ‘Changes Meaning of Eucharist’.
That set off alarm bells because that this will occur (the meaning of the Eucharist will be changed) is prophesied in the Book of Truth, using these same words. This was not ‘the official event’ but a warning of what’s to come.
The following introduction comes from TFP (The American Society for the Defence of Tradition, Family and Property) for an article entitled: For Pope Francis, the Holy Eucharist Is the “Bread of Sinners,” for Saint Thomas Aquinas, It Is “Panis Angelorum” written by Luiz Sérgio Solimeo.
“Pope Francis took advantage of the commemoration of the Feast of Corpus Christi recently to change the meaning of the Sacrament of the Eucharist into one entirely contrary to the Church’s perennial teaching. Thus, changing the poetic but theologically safe formulation of Saint Thomas, he transforms the designation “Bread of Angels” into “Bread of sinners.” (Source: American TFP, June 23, 2021.)
And he apparently did this on the solemn Feast of Corpus Christi (the Feast Day celebrating Christ’s Body and Blood), making it a particular insult.
Why can the Eucharist not be called the “bread of sinners”?
The answer to this question is quite simple. It is not the bread of sinners because we may not be in a state of sin, when we receive this Sacrament. St. Paul clearly admonishes us in 1 Corinthians 11 to receive this Sacrament worthily by examining our conscience thoroughly. If there is any stain of sin in us, we must first renounce it completely and seek absolution from all serious sin. We must be living new lives in Christ. While St Paul admonishes the sins of that Corinth church community, whose members were treating communion as if it’s just another community meal, there are much in his exhortation that applies to us, as well:
1 Corinthians 11 (Douay Rheims Edition)
11 Be ye followers of me, as I also am of Christ.
2 Now I praise you, brethren, that in all things you are mindful of me: and keep my ordinances as I have delivered them to you…
17 Now this I ordain: not praising you, that you come together not for the better, but for the worse.
18 For first of all I hear that when you come together in the church, there are schisms among you; and in part, I believe it.
19 For there must be also heresies: that they also, who are approved, may be made manifest among you.
20 When you come therefore together into one place, it is not now to eat the Lord’s supper…
22 What, have you not houses to eat and to drink in? Or despise ye the church of God; and put them to shame that have not? What shall I say to you? Do I praise you? In this I praise you not.
23 For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, that the Lord Jesus, the same night in which he was betrayed, took bread.
24 And giving thanks, broke, and said: Take ye, and eat: this is my body, which shall be delivered for you: this do for the commemoration of me.
25 In like manner also the chalice, after he had supped, saying: This chalice is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as often as you shall drink, for the commemoration of me.
26 For as often as you shall eat this bread, and drink the chalice, you shall shew the death of the Lord, until he come.
27 Therefore, whosoever shall eat this bread, or drink the chalice of the Lord unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and of the blood of the Lord.
28 But let a man prove himself: and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of the chalice.
29 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh judgment to himself, not discerning the body of the Lord.
30 Therefore are there many infirm and weak among you, and many sleep.
31 But if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.
32 But whilst we are judged, we are chastised by the Lord, that we be not condemned with this world.
34 … And the rest I will set in order, when I come.
What does St Paul mean by infirm, weak or asleep? He means spiritually, as well as physically. These followers of Christ are not well; spiritually infirm, because they show in their behaviour that Christ’s death has no effect- they do not truly believe Who He is and why He came. They do not truly believe that the Eucharist is the Body and Blood of Our Lord, at all! This is clear from the blithe and wavering way in which they act towards the most solemn and holy celebration of Christ’s Great Sacrifice. There is no guarantee of salvation for them. They do not behave as if Christ is The Lord, or as if this Sacrament is His Body and Blood, poured out for them, for their salvation. Therefore, they profit not from this Sacrament, but instead bring The Lord’s judgement upon themselves. They would not be in this state if they had examined what they do and why they do it and approached the Lord for His forgiveness and grace, reforming their lives as worthy servants of the one True Master; refraining from the Sacrament until they can truly call Him, ‘Lord’.
What does Bergoglio mean by calling it the bread of sinners?
By calling the Holy Eucharist ‘the bread of sinners’, and particularly when we look at it within the context of other lies and false teachings he has proclaimed, Bergoglio makes it clear that he means any sinners at all, in any state, should approach the Eucharist. What he omits, is important too- he fails to talk to emphasize the Sacrament of Confession, with appropriate contrition and firm purpose of amendment of life. This careless state of sinfulness in approaching God, is the exact opposite state to that which St Paul and Our Lord Himself taught- and even is in opposition to the stories of the Old Testament which testify to the Holiness of God in His Covenant and Holy Tabernacle. (See 1 Chronicles 13:9-12). The following examples will make clear Bergoglio’s consistent teaching.
How do we know that Bergoglio means serious sinners?
The first and immediate example which Bergoglio himself gives, after proclaiming that sinners should receive Christ in Communion, is a horrid and evil misrepresentation of Judas as a recipient of Divine Mercy! Blithely forgiven, without repentance, without acceptance of Jesus as Lord of all heaven and earth and without even needing to ask for forgiveness. This horrible twisting of the story of Judas Iscariot, as I had read previously , makes me feel very upset; indignant and aggrieved, angry even- for those who may be led astray by this! I cannot let it rest until I have put it right and explained how very wrong it is.
Bergoglio gives Judas as his own ‘fitting example’ to encourage ‘sinners’ to receive Jesus in any state of sin, serious ones…even the worst type. This is the clue as to where this doctrine comes from: the bowels of hell.
Why is Judas not a worthy example of anything, other than ‘just condemnation’?
Meditate on this:
Judas who deliberately chooses to receive of Jesus’ in His Most Holy and Solemn Sacrament of Love,
during It’s institution on Holy Thursday,
and doing so while having already committed to betraying Him,
and who leaves directly afterwards, (John 13: 30)
to collect silver, in place of Jesus, in his life;
the man whom scripture tells us that, directly after Judas took the piece of bread, Satan enters him
and is the man who then follows through with his evil plan and willingly betrays Jesus with a kiss– giving Him up to certain death.
This man, filled with Satan…What communion can Satan have with The Lord God of all?! Between Satan and God, there is no union possible.
What does Jesus think of Judas?
Directly before this, at the Last Supper, Jesus explicitly warns his apostles, (in John 13: 16-20) that “no servant is greater than his master, no messenger is greater than the man who sent him. Now that you know this, happiness will be yours if you behave accordingly. I am not talking about all of you: I know the ones I have chosen; but what scripture says must be fulfilled: Someone who shares my table, rebels against me.” He clearly specifies that those who welcome him as the Messiah, welcome God Himself. But Scripture tells us next that Jesus was troubled in spirit and declares that: “I tell you most solemnly, one of you will betray me.” (John 13: 21)
Earlier on, Jesus had explained at length to all His disciples, through His Eucharistic exhortation in John Ch. 6: 25-70 , that only those who welcome Him as God and keep the Father’s Commands (v 45):- those who really believe: they will have eternal life, (v 47) but he also warned that “there are some of you who do not believe.’ He is not pointing out Judas in that moment, but some Pharisees who were supposedly there to follow Him, but who did not really believe. Again it tells us, “And Jesus knew from the outset, those who did not believe and who it was that would betray him.” (v 64) Many then leave, because the teaching on the Eucharist is too hard for them to accept. Jesus lets them go and then insists on His teaching even more firmly, as a deal breaker, so to speak. He challenges the disciples as to what they will believe. “Will you go, too?”
Peter then makes a moving and definitive statement of faith, representing those who show themselves as worthy by fully accepting all that Jesus teaches, whether they understand it or not. “Lord, to whom shall we go? Only you have the words of life eternal- and we have believed and known that you are the Christ, the Son of the Living God.” (John 6: v 66-69) Jesus then again makes a point of delineating them from Judas, saying, “Didn’t I choose you, the twelve? And yet, one of you is a devil!” (John 6:61-71). If what God thinks, is not yet clear, read on…
The Fate of Judases
When Jesus gives Himself in the lasting Sacrament of the Eucharist, that holy Passover night, foretelling His death, He also foretells the fate of Judas.
“And yet, here with me, on the table, is the hand of the man who betrays me. The Son of Man does indeed go to his fate, even as it has been decreed, but alas for that man by whom he is betrayed!”
The Gospel of Mark adds one more dire line spoken from Jesus, which seals the fate of Judas:
“Better for that man if he had never been born.” (Mark 14: 21).
There is only one reason that it would be better never to have been born and that is to end up in hell for all eternity. This is perennial and undisputed Catholic teaching on Judas since the beginning.
This evil, seductive deception of Bergoglio perturbs me very much. This Judas analogy is a basis for all error. He tries to set up a false narrative, which is not of the Gospels, to build a false and immortally dangerous premise, which is that God is all merciful and all people (no matter how sinful) are therefore, forgiven and saved automatically, without any renunciation of sin. He has, moreover, actually enshrined a heretical painting of Jesus ministering to the dead body of Judas over his desk. He allowed the publication of a double page newspaper story spreading the horrendous heresy through Judas. So Judas is used once again to betray Jesus– at the hand of the man who shares His table. Both in the Vatican newspaper and from his own mouth, in Bergoglio’s sermon on the Feast of Corpus Christi.

This sort of heresy has been prophesied in the Book of Truth. Read this message here: https://missionofsalvation.com/message-1330/
Luiz Sérgio Solimeo’s article, which brought all this to my attention, is below:
In the above article, what Luiz does, is bring in to context, this puzzling statement about the so called ‘bread of sinners’ in order to understand what Bergoglio means by it. I agree with him that this is where the answer lies. All the other actions and statements that PF has made on the Eucharist and on Reconciliation, as well as predestination, become part of this undermining of teaching; the Anti-Magisterium, with which he sways souls away from ‘rigidity’ (which is really ‘purity’) towards an undermining and outright destruction of the teachings about sin -and salvation in particular, to change it to one where men can now forgive themselves because ‘ we are all sinners’.
Proof of Bergoglio’s meaning through additional information he provides:
- His words and actions in the Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia, he opened in a footnote the possibility for people living in adultery to receive Holy Communion, even while being in an objective state of grave sin.8. This, of course, is against St Paul’s teaching which is that no one should approach the table of the Lord unworthily because in doing so, he drinks condemnation on himself. 1 Corinthians 11: 27 – 29
He also publicly accepted the interpretation of the Argentine bishops which spoke of allowing ‘absolution’ without firm purpose of amendment and the reception of Holy Communion, while still remaining in sin. This is sacrilege and reveals those who do not truly believe and obey the teachings of the Gospel, preferring their own reasoning instead, to that of the Master.
- In response to the official Dubia, which explains the seven heretical propositions inherent in Amoris Laetitia, Bergoglio chooses silence, rather than to defend and reaffirm the true teachings of Faith. This again shows that the heresy (and resulting sacrilege) does not worry him because Truth is the last priority when you are intent on changing worldwide, traditional beliefs about the Eucharist, (slowly over time, of course) to form a new understanding; one where ‘its only a bit of bread’ as he said to one remarried woman, where its available to all ‘sinners’ (as is salvation) as ‘a remedy for the weak, not a prize for the perfect’, where sin is a natural weakness to be overlooked and tolerated and where all sorts of sins are accepted, condoned and acknowledged in churches and in/through the Sacraments as a sign of unity. He does this where, instead, St Paul warns us in holy scripture: “How much more severely do you think one deserves to be punished who has trampled on the Son of God, profaned the blood of the covenant that sanctified him, and insulted the Spirit of grace?” Hebrews 10:29.
- In response to atheists and pagan idolators, Bergoglio has clearly shown by his choice of actions that those who condone sin, in an open and unrestricted way, including the sexually rebellious, spiritually wayward, progressive, humanist, abortion promoting, the rich and infamous, are to be promoted and favoured with his attention- through special honours, privileged audiences, ‘blessings’ and promotional positions within his courts. Those he criticises, demotes, banishes, disbands, re-educates and restricts are good and faithful priests, bishops and cardinals and the ‘rigid’ young who promote and evangelise the Truth through traditional pious practices, including the celebration of Mass, Adoration, Pro-life and Rosary rallies.
- According to Bergoglio, in ex-cathedra statements, which make up part of his ordinary magisterium, Bergoglio has purportedly said that all atheists will ‘meet us there’ in heaven, just by ‘doing good’ (ie. in his infamous Scalfari interviews) the cross was a failure, homosexuals cannot be judged, ‘no one can be condemned forever’ because that’s not the logic of the Gospel and truly evil souls simply disappear- there is no hell.
What this battle is really about:
This article at https://catholicismpure.wordpress.com/2021/06/22/biden-the-eucharist-and-the-bishops-what-is-at-stake/ describes what is at stake, or how the argument should be correctly framed, summarised in the final paragraph:
“The battle about “Eucharistic coherence” is not about President Biden. It is not about “weaponizing the Eucharist” as Archbishop McElroy has claimed. (He should ponder St. Paul’s words in I Corinthians 11:27ff.) Neither is it about opinions about how the Church should function in a militantly secular society. The battle is about whether the Catholic Church will remain faithful to the Tradition, at whose heart is the person of Jesus Christ as the Way, the Truth and the Life…” (emphases mine).
Furthermore, due to the warnings of Our Lord through prophecy, we know exactly where Bergoglio is headed with his small, subtle changing of teachings about the Holy Eucharist. It is to bring about a gradual, sliding destruction of the Faith in what It Is (the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Our Lord, imparting supernatural life to the soul for eternal Salvation) and a building of a new faith around that which It is not:– mere bread as a symbol of unity among sinners, united in fraternal Marxism, to celebrate their automatic salvation, because truth is relative and the here and now is all that truly matters!
Currently, Bergoglio has perpetuated many untruths which change perceptions and understandings about the Holy Eucharist, towards evil ends. But these are just the starting point. His final aim is replacement. After these new understandings start to take root everywhere, like a cancer, he will subtly change the words of the Consecration and Christ will no longer be present. Let all those who scoff, take note.
The Book of Truth prophecies in this message are being fulfilled:
(Excerpts from message given by Jesus on 6 October 2013 @ 11:20pm- Message 0930)
*Note that the false prophet refers to Bergoglio, who calls himself Pope Francis.
My dearly beloved daughter, the voice of the false prophet* roars about all that is sacred in My Church. Little, however, will be said about the importance of upholding God’s Teachings, Sacraments and the Proclamation of the Truth. Instead, you will see diversions…and this will be deemed to be your first task as servants of God.
As servants and followers of God in the Church, your first allegiance is to the Truth of what I told you… My Church on Earth has a much bigger role, which was sworn to Me. This includes the teaching of the Truth in everything I taught you and you will do this, if you truly love Me…
Very shortly, statues, relics, posters, cups and large commissioned paintings will be made of the false prophet to be placed in Churches everywhere. His image, along with the antichrist, in time, will adorn many public places…This will create a new form of false evangelism, and because it will appeal to a modern secular society, it will attract admirers from all over the world.
Not one word will condone the importance of the Holy Sacraments, as they were given to the world or the important Graces, which they yield. Instead, each will be played down – extra meanings added, in order to appeal to those who deny them as they are. This will be in the hope that the abomination of the desecration of My Sacraments will be offered to as many people as possible, to take them away from God, so that the enemies of God can complete their pact with the devil.
The devil will deceive many who belong to My Church in this time in history…
My Teachings will be twisted in order to destroy My Church and steal those souls closest to Me. Millions will accept the lies, without a care in the world. You must pray for them in the hope that they will realise, in time, that something is wrong.
When I appoint leaders and when a chosen soul has been appointed to spread My Holy Word, within My Church on Earth, the Truth is always straightforward, clear, concise, and straight to the point. When you are being lied to, through the influence of the spirit of evil, you will become confused. Phrases won’t make sense. So-called improvements, presented by enemies within My Church, mean that the Truth is not ‘good enough.’
My Word, My Sacraments, My Teachings do not need to be improved upon, for they came from Me. I Am God. I Am Perfect. My Word remains forever. Any man who tampers with My Most Holy Word is an enemy of God. My Anger is great at this time and any man who treats My Body, the Most Holy Eucharist, with disrespect and says he leads My people, know that this is untrue. I would never request a leader in My Church to change the Word of God, by introducing new meanings or new interpretations. This could never be.
So that’s the real purpose of the Judas story and the urging to receive the Eucharist as if it is the bread of sinners. Pope Francis changing the meaning of the Eucharist by a phrase and a story to introduce heresy and lead souls to hell.
The Book of Truth also warns what new understandings of the Eucharist will eventuate:
- My True Church will be thrown out of Rome and will have to endure a number of years of desolation. 28 September 2013 @ 3:23pm
“…Soon, all pagan feasts and festivals will be integrated within the Catholic Churches everywhere. Pagans and those who hate God will be invited onto the altars in front of the tabernacles. This feast will be declared to be the new form of Communion – all God’s children joining together in order to respect each other’s beliefs and human rights. You, My followers, will be asked to show respect for those who want to destroy My Presence in the Holy Eucharist. You will be accused of being anti-Christian if you do not embrace paganism. This is how you will all be fooled. This is how I, Jesus Christ, will be desecrated. They will do the same in schools, in order to banish Christianity. They will do the same in political circles, when everything to do with Me will be wiped out. No other religion will be targeted with such hatred. Christianity, because it is the Truth, will be destroyed …”

- “…Christians will soon be banned from practicing their faith in public places, in schools, in colleges, until eventually in the Temples of God. … This will come about in the most cunning way, where millions will be deceived, with little notice paid, as every single detail of the Word, as it is now, will change, but this will pass quietly. …. It will be the Christians, who will be made to idolize paganism, which will be carefully presented as a new church and which will embrace a new form of ‘communion’ – a church for everyone – where I, Jesus Christ, will not feature. … (18 April 2014 @ 11:24pm)
