Bergoglio is not a "bad pope". He is an infidel -- he is more radical in his professed beliefs than was Luther or Calvin, and his agenda for "reforms" is more radical than that of the 16th Century reformers.
BERGOGLIO: FORMAL HERETIC Bergoglio pronounces the judgment of heresy against himself by directly denying and attacking the explicit and solemn command and teaching of Our Lord Jesus Christ to "make disciples of all nations" (Matt. 28:19-20). He is obstinate in this perverse doctrine which he professed previously in his interview with Eugenio Scalfari: "Proselytism is solemn nonsense." Bergoglio says Christ's teaching is "solemn nonsense": Bergoglio on 13 October 2016: ''The last thing you must do is 'to say, to convince'. It's not right to convince someone of your faith,'' he said. ''Proselytism is the strongest venom against the path of ecumenism.'' “Non è lecito convincere della tua fede: il proselitismo è il veleno più forte contro il cammino ecumenico”. A lanciare il grido d’allarme è stato il Papa, rivolgendosi a braccio ai luterani ricevuti in udienza oggi nell’Aula Paolo VI.- ANSA
BERGIGLIO IS THE COUNTERFEIT POPE OF THE CONCILIAR CHURCH
There is no EXCLUSIVE universal acceptance of the claim of Francis, rejecting the ongoing claim of Benedict to the Petrine munus.
Ultimately, the fundamentalist argument of John Salza & Robert Siscoe, (and their rabid cheerleader Paul Folbrecht), which attempts to apply the principle of universal acceptance to validate Bergoglio's claim on the Pontificate collapses on the actual inapplicability of the principle of the infallibility of universal acceptance of a pope to the case of a manifest heretic pope such as Jorge "Francis" Bergoglio. Although not ex cathedra, Pope Paul IV clearly teaches in Cum ex apostolatus officio, that a heretic simply is not a valid pope; and this teaching is in full conformity with the unanimous teaching of the Fathers, as St. Robert Bellarmine proves (De Romano Pontifice II xxx), that heretics automatically lose office and all ecclesiastical dignity, not by any human law, but ex natura hæresis. Even if it were to appear that a pope has been universally and peacefully accepted as pope; the Catholic faith teaches that if the man is manifestly a formal heretic, a heretic is neither a pope nor a member of the Church.
Benedict XVI stated explicitly on 27/02/2013 that his "decision to renounce the active exercise of the ministry does not revoke this" -- by "this", he explained that the commitment, i.e. the munus, he received from the cardinals on 20 April 2005 was "for always", and thus excludes a return to the private sphere.
Furthermore, the conditions under which a peaceful and universal acceptance need to be fulfilled in order to be applicable to the pontificate of Jorge Bergoglio, and thus, for it to establish the dogmatic fact of his pontificate, must ALL be fulfilled. One of those conditions is that the see must be vacant for a successor to be validly elected; and the see is not vacated unless the pope dies, or rightly expresses his renunciation of his munus (Canon 332). If the renunciation is equivocal (as was the text of Benedict's renunciation); then the renunciation is not "rightly expressed", as the canon explicitly requires "ad validitatem".
Another necessary condition is that the claimant cannot under any circumstances be a valid pope if he is a manifest heretic. The unanimous teaching of the Fathers on this point (demonstrated in De Romano Pontifice by St. Robert Bellarmine), and the teaching of Pope Paul IV in Cum ex apostolatus officio, absolutely exclude the possibility that a manifest heretic could validly be a pope.
Fr. Gruner died after he had already reached the conclusion that Benedict XVI is still the legitimate Roman Pontiff, and not Bergoglio. He requested that I compile the evidence and write a book demonstrating this point. Speaking on Bergoglio's claim on the papacy, Fr. Gruner said, "a heretic cannot be pope". It is only a matter of time, sooner rather than later, that the sanior pars of the hierarchy -- the Catholic stragglers within the heretical Conciliar Church, will openly break with Bergoglio because of his manifest heresy.
That Jorge Bergoglio is a manifest formal heretic is plainly demonstrated by his outright and explicit rejection of some of the most basic dogmas of Christian belief -- notably his rejection of Christ's explicit teaching on evangelizing and converting all nations; his rejection of the dogma of absolute necessity of faith for justification; his pagan notion of "God" which explicitly rejects of the dogmatic Christian doctrine of God as distinct from and infinitely transcending the creat
ed universe; which he contemptuously dismisses as a "vague idea in the clouds", and a "god spray".
Fr. Gruner said exactly the opposite of what the NPV is promoting now, with Fr. Albert & Matt Gaspers, who are spewing the Salza/Siscoe error, which states that even a manifest heretic remains in office as a valid pope, until he will have been judged to be a heretic by the Church; and insist that Jorge "Francis" Bergoglio is the true pope . But how can a council or synod even convene for this purpose of condemning and deposing a heretic pope when the "pope" and the majority of bishops & cardinals are also in heresy? Fr. Gruner was entirely correct to say that a heretic cannot be a valid pope, and he based his opinion on St. Robert Bellarmine's De Romano Pontifice II xxx (as he explained to me 25 years ago). I have written a lenghty exposition on this point, citing multiple eminent authorities which disproves the Salza/Siscoe doctrine, and exposes their heresy. (https://1drv.ms/w/s!Aqqzgk1nw6-HhlxVUnT3OBRl0GIJ)
The net effect of the Salza/Gaspers/Fr. Albert error that the Fatima Center promotes, is that Catholics are being told that no matter how heretical the "pope" and conciliar bishops might be, they are the Church. In fact, we know from correct Catholic doctrine that if a pope and a large number of bishops with him were to defect into manifest formal heresy, they would, by that very fact, cease to be Catholic; and would become an anti-church. Such was the case with the Arians, whose "church" shared the same space as most of the Catholic Church, and pretended to be the Catholic Church. Even before the condemnation of Arianism at Nicea, individual bishops and a local synod already denounced the Arians as HERETICS. In such a situation, before a Council or pope can authoritatively judge the question, Catholics have the right and duty to judge according to their own conscience, as is set forth in Canon Law: "Can. 748 §1. All persons are bound to seek the truth in those things which regard God and his Church and by virtue of divine law are bound by the obligation and possess the right of embracing and observing the truth which they have come to know."
The already openly declared agenda of defection into apostasy of Bergoglio's Vatican, along with the great portion of the hierarchy aligned with it, is now being unwittingly aided and abetted by the NPV. While Jorge Bergoglio directly attacks the most basic dogmas of faith and the divine commandments, seeking the utter demolition of Catholicism, while stating his intention to reform the Church in such a manner that will bring into being a new "church" and a new religion; the Fatima Center in Canada actively defends the supposed validity of his "pontificate", and petitions him to consecrate Russia! On August 1, 1976 in Philadelphia, Pope John Paul II said, "We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has ever experienced. I do not think that the wide circle of the American Society, or the whole wide circle of the Christian Community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-church, between the gospel and the anti-gospel, between Christ and the antichrist. The confrontation lies within the plans of Divine Providence. It is, therefore, in God's Plan, and it must be a trial which the Church must take up, and face courageously." After he was elected pope, John Paul II briefly reiterated this point in 1981, mentioning also that it pertains to the message of Fatima. Bergoglio has declared his intention to reform the Church (and is initiating those reforms) in such a manner that would transform the Church into the anti-church foretold in the secret of Fatima and by Pope Leo XIII.
Recently in Fatima Perspectives, Christopher Ferrara clarified this point of "judging the pope" saying, "It is an axiom of our religion that no person on earth can judge the Pope in the sense of a penal sentence with juridical effect." Unfortunately, the directors of the NPV are propagating the Salza/Siscoe false dotrine which says it is forbidden to exercise their right of conscience in such a matter of judging manifest heresy, which, by definition, as something "obvious to the mind", can be known with certitude.
As I wrote earlier: 《 A few days ago Pope Benedict warned that the boat (of Peter), the Church: "the boat has taken on so much water as to be on the verge of capsizing."》 Bergoglio is on record of having said that ALL the divorced and remarried will be admitted to Holy Communion. The Catholic discipline must be overthrown, and a new, permissive morality must become the basis of the new discipline, which will be identical to the discipline of the most liberal Protestants. This is directly opposed to divine law; and to institutionalize it will violate the divine constitution of the Church, according to which the Church is HOLY, and teaches and legislates according to divine law. Such a reform will constitute the defection of the "Conciliar Church" from Catholicism. Not only adulterers will be given the sacraments, but sodomites, and transgender, and all varieties of perverts as well.
Bergoglio is also on record of having replied to the Lutherans in Sweden, that he intends to bring about union between the Catholic Church and the Protestant sects. When that happens, it will not be the true & visible Catholic Church, which, remaining faithful to dogma, will refuse to unite with other religions and denominations, and which will remain faithful to the Law of Christ; but it will be the APOSTATE CHURCH -- the Conciliar Church, (which as a cancer within has so corrupted the official mainstream Church, some of which at present, is at least still formally Catholic and only materially Conciliar and heretical), that will visibly consummate its apostasy from Catholicism by visibly separating itself from true Church and join in communion with the sects. I am not speculating or theorizing about this defection which is already in progress: Jorge Bergoglio has already declared it to be the agenda of his (bogus) pontificate, which he declares he intends to make "irreversible". Bergoglio intends to "reform" the Catholic Church into a new heretical church, with a new religion: what Freemasonry calls "Christianity without dogmas". This is the long-term plan of Freemasonry to demolish Catholicism and replace it with a new, dogma-free religion (as Father Manfred Adler explained in his book Die Antichristlichle Revolution der Freimaurerei). Bergoglio's belief system is based on the doctrines of Spinoza, Schleiermacher, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin SJ, etc. His "religion" resembles notably the pre-eminently Masonic religion of Lord Shaftesbury (Anthony Ashley Cooper, 3rd Earl of Shaftesbury, Feb. 26, 1671 - 16 Feb. 1713).
When that reform is accomplished, (not if but when; Bergoglio says it will happen), then the visible break of the "Conciliar Church" from the true Catholic Church will be accomplished and consummated, as Pope Leo XIII foretold in the original version of his prayer to St. Michael: 《Ecclesiam, Agni immaculati sponsam, faverrrimi hostes repleverunt amaritudinibus, inebriarunt absinthio; ad omnia desiderabilia ejus impias miserunt manus. Ubi sedes beatissimi Petri et Cathedra veritatis ad lucem gentium constituta est, ibi thronum posuerunt abominationis et impietatis suæ; ut percusso Pastore, et gregem disperdere valeant.》
("Behold the Church, the Spouse of the Immaculate Lamb, filled with bitterness and inebriated with gall by the most crafty enemies; who have laid impious hands on all that is most sacred. Where the See of the most blessed Peter and the Chair of the truth, was constituted as the light of the nations, there they have set up the throne of their abominable impiety, so that the shepherd being struck, the sheep may be dispersed.")
From the 1930 Raccolta:
"Questi sì astuti nemici hanno riempito ed inebriato con impudenza ed amarezza la Chiesa, la Sposa dell'immacolato Agnello, ed hanno posto empie mani sui suoi più sacri possedimenti. Nel luogo santo medesimo, nel quale è stata stabilita la Sede del beatissimo Pietro e la sedia della Verità per la luce del mondo, essi hanno innalzato il trono della loro abominevole empietà, con l'iniquo piano per il quale allorché il Pastore viene colpito le pecore siano disperse."
Thus, “where the See of the most blessed Peter and the Chair of the Truth was constituted as the light of the nations, there they [the Masonic Sankt Gallen Mafia] have raised the throne of their abominable impiety”. These words actually refer to Apostate Conciliar Rome, where the “throne of abominable impiety” will be, and under Bergoglio has been “raised up”, and is the visible entity that occupies the place “where the See of the most blessed Peter and the Chair of Truth" was "set up as the light of the nations”, as Cardinal Henry Edward Manning also explained more than 20 years earlier in his book, The Present Crisis of the Holy See, basing his conclusion on the unanimous teaching of the ancient Fathers, Cardinal Manning wrote: "I think it well to recite the text of theologians of greatest repute. First Malvenda, who writes expressly on the subject, states as the opinion of Ribera, Gaspar Melus, Biegas, Suarez, Bellarmine and Bosius that Rome shall apostatize from the Faith, drive away the Vicar of Christ and return to its ancient Paganism. ...Then the Church shall be scattered, driven into the wilderness, and shall be for a time, as it was in the beginning, invisible; hidden in catacombs, in dens, in mountains, in lurking places; for a time it shall be swept, as it were from the face of the earth. Such is the universal testimony of the Fathers of the early Church.”- (Henry Edward Cardinal Manning, The Present Crisis of the Holy See, 1861, London: Burns and Lambert, pp. 88-90)
By promoting the Salza, Siscoe, Fr. Albert error, that the more highly visible but heretical Conciliar Church IS the Catholic Church, the NPV is promoting the interests of the Masonic anti-church that Our Lady of Fatima warned against in the Secret, and is now actively (albeit unwittingly) fighting against the true Church and its Pontiff, Benedict XVI.
As was the case during the Arian heresy, so now also, as Fr. Linus Clovis explained last May: “THE CATHOLIC CHURCH AND THE ANTI-CHURCH CURRENTLY CO-EXIST IN THE SAME SACRAMENTAL, LITURGICAL AND JURIDICAL SPACE”. However, the "Conciliar Church" under Jorge Bergoglio is now in the actual process of breaking away formally from the true Church, while calling itself "Catholic", and excoriating the true Catholic Church as a fringe group of schismatics fanatically attached to the past. The actual breaking-away process was started by Bergoglio with Amoris Lætitia, and was eerily foretold by Sr. Lucia to Cardinal Caffarra: 《 “The final battle between the Lord and the reign of Satan will be about marriage and the family. Don’t be afraid … because anyone who operates for the sanctity of marriage and the family will always be contended and opposed in every way, because this is the decisive issue … however, Our Lady has already crushed its head” 》
“[Satan] will set up a counter-church which will be the ape of the [Catholic] Church … It will have all the notes and characteristics of the Church, but in reverse and emptied of its divine content.” 》 - Archbishop Fulton Sheen
No matter how heretical and openly opposed to the teaching of Christ the Conciliar hierarchy might become, the Salza, Gaspers, Fr. Albert ecclesiology, adopted by the NPV says that Catholics must remain in communion with that hierarchy -- with THAT "CHURCH" described by Archbishop Sheen:
《The False prophet will have a religion without a cross. A religion without a world to come. A religion to destroy religions. There will be a counterfeit Church.
Christ’s Church the Catholic Church will be one; and the false Prophet will create the other.
The False Church will be worldly, ecumenical, and global. It will be a loose federation of churches and religions, forming some type of global association.
A world parliament of Churches. It will be emptied of all Divine content, it will be the mystical body of the anti-christ. The Mystical Body on earth today will have its Judas Iscariot, and he will be the false prophet. Satan will recruit him from our Bishops.
The Antichrist will not be so called; otherwise he would have no followers. He will not wear red tights, nor vomit sulphur, nor carry a trident nor wave an arrowed tail as Mephistopheles in Faust. This masquerade has helped the Devil convince men that he does not exist. When no man recognizes, the more power he exercises. God has defined Himself as “I am Who am,” and the Devil as “I am who am not.” [...]
The pre-Communist Russian belief is that he will come disguised as the Great Humanitarian; he will talk peace, prosperity and plenty not as means to lead us to God, but as ends in themselves …
The third temptation in which Satan asked Christ to adore him and all the kingdoms of the world would be His, will become the temptation to have a new religion without a Cross, a liturgy without a world to come, a religion to destroy a religion, or a politics which is a religion–one that renders unto Caesar even the things that are God’s.
In the midst of all his seeming love for humanity and his glib talk of freedom and equality, he will have one great secret which he will tell to no one: he will not believe in God. Because his religion will be brotherhood without the fatherhood of God, he will deceive even the elect. He will set up a counterchurch which will be the ape of the Church, because he, the Devil, is the ape of God. It will have all the notes and characteristics of the Church, but in reverse and emptied of its divine content. It will be a mystical body of the Antichrist that will in all externals resemble the mystical body of Christ […]
But the twentieth century will join the counterchurch because it claims to be infallible when its visible head speaks ex cathedra from Moscow* on the subject of economics and politics, and as chief shepherd of world communism.》
(Fulton J. Sheen, Communism and the Conscience of the West [Bobbs-Merril Company, Indianapolis, 1948], pp. 24-25)
* Bergoglio's cathedra is not physically located in Soviet Moscow (which no longer exists in Russia, but lives on in Bergoglio's Vatican)
Pope John Paul II stated that this struggle between the Church and the anti-church; the Gospel and the anti-gospel, is revealed in the Secret of Fatima. As I wrote before, If it was so important 57 years ago that the Mother of God wanted the Secret revealed then, how much more urgent is it now, four years after the heretical intruder has hijacked the Vatican, and transformed it into the headquarters of his global Reformation, by which he intends to replace the true Catholic Church with a Masonic counterfeit church. This point of the Secret must be shouted from the rooftops, but the [NPV] apostolate has chosen to bury it, because it might alienate some donors.
The priest must be a guardian and watchman, who sounds the alarm when the enemy attacks. This is what God says on this point: "The word of the Lord came to me: 2 “Son of man, speak to your people and say to them: ‘When I bring the sword against a land, and the people of the land choose one of their men and make him their watchman,3 and he sees the sword coming against the land and blows the trumpet to warn the people, 4 then if anyone hears the trumpet but does not heed the warning and the sword comes and takes their life, their blood will be on their own head. 5 Since they heard the sound of the trumpet but did not heed the warning, their blood will be on their own head. If they had heeded the warning, they would have saved themselves. 6 But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet to warn the people and the sword comes and takes someone’s life, that person’s life will be taken because of their sin, but I will hold the watchman accountable for their blood.’" (Ezekiel 33)
Meanwhile, as the Anti-church makes its move to take the place of the true Church founded by Christ; the NPV upholds the supposed legitimacy of the false "Conciliar Church" and its counterfeit "Pope Francis". As I wrote earlier:
The NPV leadership manifests itself to be afflicted with spiritual blindness. They think that what I am saying distracts from the Fatima message (!) and damages the apostolate. That is a canard, and the NPV leadership is apparently swallowing this canard whole. The NPV is now silencing and opposing the most important part of the message of Fatima, namely, the part in the Third Secret about the apostasy led by a heretic-antipope, whose radical "reforms" will cause a massive defection of the conciliar hierarchy from Catholicism to the dogma-free New Religion, foretold by Pope St. Pius X in Notre charge apostolique. ("l’établissement d’une Église universelle qui n’aura ni dogmes, ni hiérarchie, ni règle pour l’esprit, ni frein pour les passions et qui, sous prétexte de liberté et de dignité humaine, ramènerait dans le monde, si elle pouvait triompher, le règne légal de la ruse et de la force, et l’oppression des faibles, de ceux qui souffrent et qui travaillent.")The NPV has Salza ally, Fr. Albert, on its priests' advisory board; and on its website, they have posted Fr. Albert's asinine video in which he deceptively argues that Francis is the true pope, (and consequently all Catholics must acknowledge him as pope, be in communion with him, and be subject to his authority as the legitimate Pontiff). Fr. Albert sets up the false paradigm of Francis vs. Sedevacantism --- as if the only alternative to Bergoglio is a vacant see. This is patently dishonest of him, since Pope Benedict XVI did not renounce the munus petrinum; and therefore, the only legitimate question is not Francis or sede vacante, but Francis or Benedict. I have systematically analysed (as did even more completely Canon Law Professor Fr. Stefano Violi) Benedict's own words, in which he very carefully states his intention to renounce only the petrine ministry, but NOT the petrine munus. Benedict stated explicitly that he received his commitment to serve (i.e. the munus) on 19 April 2005, which he said was "for always" and added, "my decision to renounce the active exercise of the ministry does not revoke this." Thus it is clear that Benedict XVI did not validly resign the papacy, since to validly resign the office, the pope must correctly express his intention to renounce his munus: Can. "332 § 2 - Si contingat ut Romanus Pontifex muneri suo renuntiet, ad validitatem requiritur
ut renuntiatio libere fiat et rite manifestetur, non vero ut a quopiam acceptetur." Not only did Benedict not correctly express any intention to renounce his munus, but he expressly stated his renunciation of the ministry does not revoke his munus. Therefore, he erroneously stated that his renunciation vacates the chair -- an invalidating substantial error: "Can. 188 — Renuntiatio ex metu gravi, iniuste incusso, dolo vel errore substantiali aut simoniace facta, ipso iure irrita est."
This "substantial error" has created the appearance that two men in papal attire with papal names, and who address each other as "Your Holiness", share the petrine munus; and therefore it is PATENTLY ABSURD for Fr. Albert, et al. to claim that the election and subsequent "unanimous acceptance", which resulted from an election conditioned on a defect of intention and an invalidating substantial error; and which is not exclusive, but includes both mens' claim on the papacy, somehow proves that Bergoglio is the true pope! A plain and simple application of the cited canons proves beyond all shadow of doubt that Benedict's resignation was invalid, and consequently, he is still the only reigning pope. Bergoglio is the heretic-antipope; and according to the Secret of Fatima, the heretic-antipope will lead the stampede into apostasy.
The NPV had Salza speaking in Chicago saying essentially the same thing as Fr. Albert regarding the alleged validity of the Bergoglian pontificate. Salza's furious, sacrilegious attacks on me were not seen by the NPV leadership to be a reason to drop him from the Chicago conference; but my replying to their calumny and their grave doctrinal errors is construed by them to be a reason to drop me as a speaker in the upcoming California conference. That is a glaring double standard: They are using two weights and two measures.
By providing a venue for the pro-Bergoglio propagandists, the NPV is attacking the Fatima message at its heart: The Third Secret reveals and warns against the conciliar ecumenical agenda to reform the Church into a counterfeit church with a false religion. The Great Apostasy will be Vatican led, under a false and heretical "pope" -- as Cardinal Ciappi said, "In the third secret it is revealed, among other things, that the great apostasy in the Church will begin at the top." Cardinal Ottaviani said essentially the same thing -- that Satan will penetrate to the highest level in the Church. Malachy Martin, who learned the content if the Secret from Cardinal Bea, confirmed to me that, according to the Secret, the apostasy will be led by an antipope who will be a heretic. [...]
"Be not deceived, God is not mocked. For what things a man shall sow, those also shall he reap." (Gal. 6:7-8) The work of Fr. Gruner's Fatima apostolate was of God -- the preaching of the full message of Fatima (even if the NPV leadership today think it not prudent). The present management will not succeed in overthrowing the preaching of the full message, because it is God's will that the full Secret be made known: "But if it be of God, you cannot overthrow it, lest perhaps you be found even to fight against God " (Acts 5:39). By suppressing the most important part of the message of Fatima revealed for the salvation of souls, but suppressed in order to not alienate Conciliar, Novus Ordo minded donors, THE NPV IS NOW FIGHTING AGAINST GOD AND THE SALVATION OF SOULS - Salus animarum suprema lex debet esse (can. 1752)
"Woe to him that contendeth with his Maker!" (Isaiah 45:9)
The "diplomatic version" of the secret, published in 1963, is not a false version of the secret, but sets forth the specific points of the secret's content. After having been published in Neues Europa, it was explicitly recognized by Cardinal Ottaviani who later acknowledged privately to Fr. Luigi Villa his own authorship of it. Fr. Gruner also reported, "We have as evidence of this the testimony of Msgr. Corrado Balducci, a Vatican insider for more than forty years, who related that when Cardinal Ottaviani was asked whether the Neues Europa account should be published, the Cardinal, who had read the Third Secret — and who had a dry personality and was basically indifferent to most apparitions — exclaimed very emphatically: "Publish 10,000 copies! Publish 20,000 copies! Publish 30,000 copies!(http://www.fatima.org/thirdsecret/neueseuropa.asp) In addition to the Fatima secret, revealed in its specific points by Cardinal Ottaviani, which foretells that the devil will penetrate to the highest level in the Vatican, there are other prophecies which foretell the defection of Rome and the hijacking of the Vatican by the partisans of the devil. According to another report, "On March 17, 1990 Cardinal Oddi, who was a personal friend of Pope John XXIII and who had spoken to him regarding the Secret, gave the following testimony to Italian journalist Lucio Brunelli in the journal Il Sabato: “It [the Third Secret] has nothing to do with Gorbachev. The Blessed Virgin was alerting us against apostasy in the Church.” (Terryville, Connecticut, 2002, pg. 33 The Devil’s Final Battle. Kramer, Rev. Paul, ed.)
Cardinal Mario Luigi Ciappi wrote in his letter to Prof. Baumgartener of Salzburg, that "the secret of Fatima reveals, among other things, that the great apostasy in the Church will begin at the top". The Third Secret is about apostasy -- as Bishop Cosme do Amaral stated in his discourse in 1981 at the Technical University of Vienna. It is about the great apostasy foretold in Scripture; and, as Sr. Lucia explained, it is in Chapters 8 - 13 of the Apocalypse, as Frère Michel mentions in his monumental work on Fatima.
The defection of Rome has been described by the eminent theologian, Fr. E. Sylvester Berry:
In the forgoing chapter  St. John outlines the history of the Church from the coming of Antichrist until the end of the world . . . In this chapter he shows us the true nature of the conflict. It shall be a war unto death between the Church and the powers of darkness in a final effort to destroy the Church and thus prevent the universal reign of Christ on earth." "......In this passage there is an evident allusion to some particular son of the Church whose power and influence shall be such that Satan will seek his destruction at any cost. This person can be none other than the Pope to be elected in those days. The Papacy will be attacked by all the powers of hell. In consequence the Church will suffer great trials and afflictions in securing a successor upon the throne of Peter. “The words of St. Paul to the Thessalonians may be a reference to the Papacy as the obstacle to the coming of Antichrist: ‘You know what withholdeth, that he may be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity already worketh; only that he who now holdeth, do hold until he be taken out of the way. And then that wicked one shall be revealed." ".... . St. John . . . sees in heaven a red dragon with seven heads and ten horns . . . The dragon is Satan red with the blood of martyrs, which he will cause to flow. The meaning of the seven heads and ten horns must be sought in the description of the beast that represents Antichrist where they symbolize kings or worldly powers. (II Thessalonians 2:6-7) . . . Satan’s attacks against the Church will be organized and carried out by the governments and ruling powers of those days." "“With the beast of Antichrist only the horns have diadems as symbols of royalty or governing power. The heads are branded with names of blasphemy. (Apocalypse, 13:1) Hence they symbolize the sins and errors that will afflict the Church . . . in this final struggle to prevent the universal reign of Christ all forms of sin and error will be marshaled against the Church . . . all errors which have afflicted the Church may be summed up in these seven: Judaism, paganism, Arianism, Mohammedanism, Protestantism, rationalism, and atheism. “The dragon is seen in heaven which is here a symbol of the Church, the kingdom of heaven on earth. This indicates that the first troubles of those days will be inaugurated within the Church by apostate bishops, priests, and peoples, — the stars dragged down by the tail of the dragon “ . . . The dragon stands before the woman, ready to devour the child that is brought forth. In other words, the powers of hell seek by all means to destroy the Pope elected in those days. “. . . It is now the hour for the powers of darkness. The new-born Son of the Church is taken ‘to God and to his throne.’ Scarcely has the newly elected Pope been enthroned when he is snatched away by martyrdom. The ‘mystery of iniquity’ gradually developing through the centuries, cannot be fully consummated while the power of the Papacy endures, but now he that ‘withholdeth is taken out of the way.’ During the interregnum ‘that wicked one shall be revealed’ in his fury against the Church.” "It is a matter of history that the most disastrous periods for the Church were times when the Papal throne was vacant, or when anti-popes contended with the legitimate head of the Church. Thus also shall it be in those evil days to come." “The Church deprived of her chief pastor must seek sanctuary in solitude there to be guided by God Himself during those trying days . . . In those days the Church shall . . . find refuge and consolation in faithful souls, especially in the seclusion of the religious life. “ . . . Our Divine Savior has a representative on earth in the person of the Pope upon whom He has conferred full powers to teach and govern. Likewise, Antichrist will have his representative in the false prophet who will be endowed with the plenitude of satanic powers to deceive the nations. “ . . . As indicated by the resemblance to a lamb, the prophet will probably set himself up in Rome as a sort of antipope during the vacancy of the papal throne . . . “ . . . The ‘abomination of desolation’ has been wrought in many Catholic churches by heretics and apostates who have broken altars, scattered relics of martyrs and desecrated the Blessed Sacrament. At the time of the French Revolution a lewd woman was seated upon the altar of the cathedral in Paris and worshipped as the goddess of reason. Such things but faintly foreshadow the abominations that will desecrate churches in those sorrowful days when Antichrist will seat himself at the altar to be adored as God." ". . .Antichrist and his prophet will introduce ceremonies to imitate the Sacraments of the Church. In fact there will be a complete organization - a church of Satan set up in opposition to the Church of Christ. Satan will assume the part of God the Father; Antichrist will be honored as Savior, and his prophet will usurp the role of Pope. Their ceremonies will counterfeit the Sacraments . . .” Published in 1921 by Father E. Sylvester Berry in his book, The Apocalypse of St. John. And again in his following work: "The prophecies of the Apocalypse show that Satan will imitate the Church of Christ (Catholic Church) to deceive mankind; he will set up a church of Satan in opposition to the Church of Christ. Antichrist will assume the role of Messias; his prophet will act the part of Pope, and there will be imitations of the Sacraments of the Church. There will also be lying wonders in imitation wrought in the Church."Published in 1927 by Father E. Sylvester Berry in his book, The Church of Christ: An Apologetic and Dogmatic Treatise.
JORGE BERGOGLIO (PANDEIST AND PAGAN:
Bergoglio is an infidel. He is a pandeist who does not believe in the transcendent God and Creator of Catholicism, but in the immanent 'divine principle' of Paganism, the life giving world soul (anima mundi) within the universe. His creed is remarkably like a synthesis of the belief systems of Lord Shaftesbury, Friedrich Schleiermacher, Benedict Spinoza, Auguste Compte, and Pierre Teilhard de Chardin. He says atheists can be saved (no need for faith in God), he has stated that the souls of the damned do not suffer eternal punishment. The damned souls, according to Bergoglio, will be annihilated. His doctrine on marriage is entirely circumscribed by Naturalism, denying the supernatural sacramentality of Holy Matrimony. Here is the link to the video where he says Mother Earth gave us life, and that it is she who protects us. https://youtu.be/EOnH-NmkMv0 Francis is a PAGAN: "A noi, a tutti, piace la madre Terra, perché è quella che ci ha dato la vita e ci custodisce; direi anche la sorella Terra, che ci accompagna nel nostro cammino dell’esistenza."
(http://m.vatican.va/content/francescomobile/it/speeches/2016/june/documents/papa-francesco_20160601_institute-of-jainology.html) "We all like mother Earth, because it is she who gave us life and protects us" - Jorge "Francis" Bergoglio It is GOD -- the GOD who CREATED ALL THINGS VISIBLE AND INVISIBLE who gave us life -- NOT "MOTHER EARTH", as Francis says. It is because GOD created us and gives life to us, that we profess Him DOMINUM ET VIVIFICANTEM -- "THE LORD AND GIVER OF LIFE". "Mother Earth" does not give us life, but the GOD who created the world and all living things, and who became incarnate, so that we may "have life, and have it more abundantly" (John 10:10), gave us life. It was GOD who formed man from the lifeless slime of the earth, and breathed into him the breath of life living soul and man became a living soul: 《formavit igitur Dominus Deus hominem de limo terrae et inspiravit in faciem eius spiraculum vitae et factus est homo in animam viventem》- Gen.2:7 Ps. 148:5 - "laudent nomen Domini quia ipse dixit et facta sunt ipse mandavit et creata sunt" Ps. 32:9 - "ipse dixit et facta sunt ipse mandavit et creata sunt" Judith 16:17 - "tibi serviat omnis creatura tua quia dixisti et facta sunt misisti spiritum tuum et creata sunt et non est qui resistat voci tuae"
It is precisely this notion of the EARTH as the giver of life and provident protector of life which conceives of "God" not as a transcendent, infinitely and eternally perfect Supreme Being; but as a merely immanent demiurge; a "divine" life giving principle which constitutes the world as the womb that gives life to all things. In his remarkably short but concentrated work, The Present Crisis of the Holy See (1861), Cardinal Henry Edward Manning describes the continuous unfolding of the "mystery of iniquity", outlining the development of the spirit of Antichrist, which is the denial of the mystery of the Incarnation of the Son of God; replacing it with the pantheistic Incarnationalism of "God" as "the living soul of the world". It is this pagan Incarnationalism which conceives of "God" as "Mother Earth" -- the earth as the womb which generates all life. It is this pagan and pantheistic religion, which conceives of God as "the living soul of the world", that Manning says is the embodiment of the spirit of Antichrist; and which Jorge Bergoglio professed last 1 June.
JORGE BERGOGLIO'S RELIGION --FREEMASONRY (NATURALISM, PANDEISM) Those who doubt that "Pope" Francis is the spearhead of the apostasy foretold in Scripture and the Secret of Fatima need only consider that his agenda for reform seeks the utter demolition of the Catholic Church. Bergoglio is more radical in his revolt that Luther, Calvin, Zwingli, Melanchton, Knox and Cranmer all together. Jorge Bergoglio is the Public Enemy No. 1 of the Catholic religion. When I asked Roberto de Mattei if he agreed with the statement that Bergoglio's revolt against Christ is even more radical than the revolt of Luther and Calvin, he replied with one word: "Yes".
Bergoglio teaches that even those without faith, which is to say, infidels, can be saved -- and that there is no need to obey God's commandments. Obedience to one's own faithless conscience suffices for salvation, according to Bergoglio. Divine Revelation teaches there is no justification or salvation without faith, and that the divine commandments must be obeyed: "Tu mandásti mandáta tua custodíri nimis"; and, "maledicti qui declinant a mandatis tuis" (Ps. 118); " Convertántur peccatóres in inférnum, omnes Gentes quæ obliviscúntur Deum" (Ps. 9), and, "sic viae omnium qui obliviscuntur Deum et spes hypocritae peribit" (Iob. 8:13).
The dogmatic teaching of the Council of Trent, the explicit teaching of Scripture, and the universal and perpetual magisterium all teach the diametrical opposite:
"When we say that faith is necessary for the remission of sins, we mean to speak of the Catholic faith, not heretical faith. Without the habit of this faith, no man is justified." (St. Alphonsus Liguori, An Exposition and Defense of All the Points of Faith Discussed and Defined by the Council of Trent)
BERGOGLIO IS A FAITHLESS APOSTATE At the end of the synod, Bergoglio declared in yet another interview with Eugenio Scalfari: "This is the bottom line result, the de facto appraisals are entrusted to the confessors, but at the end of faster or slower paths, all the divorced who ask will be admitted.” These are the words of Fr. Bergoglio: "ALL THE DIVORCED WHO ASK [for Holy Communion] WILL BE ADMITTED." (http://fatima.org/perspectives/sd/perspective798.asp)
"POPE" FRANCIS HAS OFFICIALLY APPROVED OF HOLY COMMUNION FOR PEOPLE LIVING IN ADULTERY: "Pope" Francis approves the granting of sacraments to adulterers under certain circumstances: "5) Cuando las circunstancias concretas de una pareja lo hagan factible, especialmente cuando ambos sean cristianos con un camino de fe, se puede proponer el empeño de vivir en continencia. Amoris laetitia no ignora las dificultades de esta opción (cf. nota 329) y deja abierta la posibilidad de acceder al sacramento de la Reconciliación cuando se falle en ese propósito (cf. nota 364, según la enseñanza de san Juan Pablo II al Cardenal W. Baum, del 22/03/1996). 6) En otras circunstancias más complejas, y cuando no se pudo obtener una declaración de nulidad, la opción mencionada puede no ser de hecho factible. No obstante, igualmente es posible un camino de discernimiento. Si se llega a reconocer que, en un caso concreto, hay limitaciones que atenúan la responsabilidad y la culpabilidad (cf. 301-302), particularmente cuando una persona considere que caería en una ulterior falta dañando a los hijos de la nueva unión, Amoris laetitia abre la posibilidad del acceso a los sacramentos de la Reconciliación y la Eucaristía (cf. notas 336 y 351). Estos a su vez disponen a la persona a seguir madurando y creciendo con la fuerza de la gracia. 7) Pero hay que evitar entender esta posibilidad como un acceso irrestricto a los sacramentos . . ." Bergoglio's explicit approval: "El escrito es muy bueno y explícita cabalmente el sentido del capitulo VIII de Amoris laetitia. No hay otras interpretaciones." http://m.vatican.va/content/francescomobile/es/letters/2016/documents/papa-francesco_20160905_regione-pastorale-buenos-aires.html
What utter contempt for God's law. Bergoglio does not believe in Christ's doctrine on marriage -- Jorge Bergoglio is an infidel -- a faithless heathen who openly denies the most basic dogmas and moral teachings of the Church. He is not a member of the Catholic Church, nor its pope.
His recent statement claiming that monogamous cohabitation constitutes a valid marriage* opposes the supernatural sacramentality of Holy Matrimony and manifests the antisupernaturalism of his naturalistic belief system. If cohabitation were to be considered a valid marriage, then there would be no need for sacramental marriage, since the cohabitation would fulfil the law of God -- which is heresy. Bergoglio's idea of marriage is rooted in Masonic naturalism -- which is no surprise, because Bergoglio's religion is identical to Masonic Naturalism.
* "He said on the one hand that the “great majority” of Catholic marriages are “null”, and that some cohabiting relationships “have the grace of a real marriage because of their fidelity” and in fact may be “real marriages” because of this." The Irish Catholic:(http://irishcatholic.ie/article/understanding-pope%E2%80%99s-remarks-about-marriage) --------------------------------------------------------- BERGOGLIO DENIES THE FIRST PRINCIPLE OF CHRISTIANITY -- THE NECESSITY OF FAITH FOR JUSTIFICATION & SALVATION "First of all, you ask if the God of the Christians forgives those who do not believe and do not seek faith. Given that—and this is fundamental—God's mercy has no limits . . . the issue for those who do not believe in God is in obeying their own conscience.
Sin, even for those who have no faith, exists when people disobey their conscience." The key words are: "those who do not believe and do not seek faith." Does God forgive them? Bergoglio says, "God's mercy has no limits . . . the issue for those who do not believe in God is obeying their own conscience" (!!!) and: "The goodness or the wickedness of our behaviour depends on this decision" Note also the moral relativism: "listening and obeying it [conscience], means deciding about what is perceived to be good or evil" Bergoglio states with unmistakable clarity that one with no faith at all obtains forgiveness from God by obeying his conscience: "deciding about what is perceived to be good or to be evil." For Bergoglio, the conscience is autonomous: the "Thou shalt" and "Thou shalt not" commandments are nullified -- human dignity (according to Bergoglio's Masonic creed) demands that the human person decide for himself what is right or wrong, without the tyranny of "clericalism" dictating to man's conscience, "Thou shalt not!" Bergoglio's economy of salvation dispenses entirely with any need for faith -- faith is utterly superfluous. Salvation depends exclusively on following one's own autonomous conscience; and absolutely no one may dictate to that conscience by claiming to teach in God's name with divine authority. This is Bergoglio's religion. It is as far removed from Christianity as heaven is from hell. Bergoglio's religion is not Catholicism -- it is Masonism in its purest form. His creed is essentially identical to that of the godless Enlightenment freethinker, Lord Shaftesbury (1671 - 1713): " The articles of Shaftesbury's religious creed were few and simple, but these he entertained with a conviction amounting to enthusiasm. They may briefly be summed up as a belief in one God whose most characteristic attribute is universal benevolence, in the moral government of the universe, and in a future state of man making up for the imperfections and repairing the inequalities of the present life." AH! The Fatherhood of God and the Brotherhood of Man. (cf. Wikipedia) Shaftesbury's moral doctrine is that of the "Moral Sense", of which the two most basic principles are:
"1 that the distinction between right and wrong is part of the constitution of human nature; 2. that morality stands apart from theology, and the moral qualities of actions are determined apart from the arbitrary will of God." Fr. Cornelio Fabro cites the verbatim quotations (Introduzione all"ateismo moderno) in which Shaftesbury declares that religion does not consist in believing tenets of revelation, but in morality. His religion was essentially Deism and Rationalism. (cf.- http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/shaftesbury/#8)
Lest anyone think Scalfari fabricated the above Beegoglio quotation, here's a a parallel passage in Bergoglio's sermon: Francesco, il capo della Chiesa Cattolica Romana ha affermato che anche gli atei vanno in paradiso. Pochi giorni fa infatti, ha raccontato la storia di un parrocchiano Cattolico che chiese ad un prete se anche gli atei erano stati salvati da Gesù, ed ha detto: ‘Il Signore ci ha creati a Sua immagine e somiglianza, e noi siamo l’immagine del Signore, ed Egli fa del bene e tutti noi abbiamo questo comandamento nel cuore: fai il bene e non fare il male. Tutti noi. ‘Ma, Padre, questo non è Cattolico! Non può fare il bene’. Sì, può farlo …. ‘Il Signore ha redento tutti noi, tutti noi, con il Sangue di Cristo: tutti noi, non solo Cattolici. Tutti! ‘Padre, e gli atei?’ Anche gli atei. Tutti!’ …. Dobbiamo incontrarci facendo il bene. ‘Ma, Padre, io non credo, sono un ateo!’ Ma fai il bene: noi ci incontreremo là’ [in paradiso]. Ecco le parole in inglese così come sono state pubblicate dall’Huffington Post: “The Lord created us in His image and likeness, and we are the image of the Lord, and He does good and all of us have this commandment at heart: do good and do not do evil. All of us. ‘But, Father, this is not Catholic! He cannot do good.’ Yes, he can… “The Lord has redeemed all of us, all of us, with the Blood of Christ: all of us, not just Catholics. Everyone! ‘Father, the atheists?’ Even the atheists. Everyone!”.. We must meet one another doing good. ‘But I don’t believe, Father, I am an atheist!’ But do good: we will meet one another there.” http://giacintobutindaro.org/2013/05/26/secondo-papa-francesco-anche-gli-atei-vanno-in-paradiso/ Bergoglio in, Heaven and Earth: "As I am a believer, I know that these riches are a gift from God. I also know that the other person, the atheist, does not know that. I do not approach the relationship in order to proselytize, or convert the atheist; I respect him and I show myself as I am. Where there is knowledge, there begins to appear esteem, affection, and friendship. I do not have any type of reluctance, nor would I say that his life is condemned, because I am convinced that I do not have the right to make a judgment about the honesty of that person; even less, if he shows me those human virtues that exalt others and do me good."
Jorge "Francis" Bergoglio is most cerrainly an infidel, without the slightest doubt: I can say with absolute certitude that Bergoglio is a formal heretic on the basis of the considerations that it is impossible that he is inculpable for denying the most basic revealed truth of the necessity of faith for salvation, because that pertains to the Natural Law which is written in the heart (Rom. 2:15): "Certum est hominem teneri ex lege naturali ad Deum per Fidem, Spem et Charitatem se convertere, et ideo elicere earum virtutum actus" (S. Alphonsus de Liguri, Opera Moralia, Lib. II, Tract. I, De Præcepto Fidei. cap. II) - and therefore there is besides the patent matter of heresy the inexcusable form of the sin of heresy, which puts Jorge Bergoglio outside of communion with the Catholic Church: “Hæresis est error intellectus, et pertinax contra Fidem, in eo qui Fidem sucepit. ... Unde patet, ad Hæresim, ut et Apostasiam, duo requiri, 1. Judicium erroneum, quod est ejus quasi materiale. 2. Pertinaciam; quae est quasi formale. Porro pertinaciter errare non est hic acriter, et mordicus suum errorem tueri; sed est eum retinere, postquam contrarium est sufficienter propositum: sive quando scit contrarium teneri a reliqua universali Christi in terris Ecclesia, cui suum iudicium præferat” – St. Alphonsus M. De Liguori, Lib. II. Tract. I. De præcepto Fidei. Dubium III. Since this matter pertains to the Natural Law, it is patent and certain that both of the conditions for matter and form are present in Bergoglio's denial of the most fundamental principle upon which all religion is based and hinges on, since in matters of natural law, "whoever shall have sinned without the law shall perish without the law". (Rom. 2:12).
JORGE BERGOGLIO IS THE SPEARHEAD OF THE GREAT APOSTASY As Cardinal Ciappi wrote on the Third Secret of Fatima, "[T]he great apostasy in the Church will begin at the top." The collect for the XVIIth Sunday After Pentecost implores God to protect His faithful from the diabolical poison (the false opinions being spewed daily by Jorge Bergoglio and his Mason occupied Vatican), so they may avoid this contagion and follow the divine truths perpetually taught by the Catholic Church with a pure mind: Orémus Da, quaesumus, Domine, populo tuo diabolica vitare contagia: et te solum Deum pura mente sectari. Per Dóminum . . . Bergoglio's deadly poison, is faithlessness, which produces the death of the soul. The first Great Commandment is this: "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart, and with thy whole soul, and with thy whole mind." (Mt.22:37) This commandment unconditionally demands that we believe in God, believe his revelation, and obey His precepts. "This is the greatest and the first commandment." (v. 38) This is the basis of the Second Commandment, "And the second is like to this: Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself." (v. 39) The Second hinges directly from the first; since, without the need to believe, love, and obey God, there cannot exist an obligation to love one's neighbor or oneself. We are bound absolutely by Divine Law to observe these commandments, because God has commanded us to obey them; and not because we are convinced in our own mind that they are correct. To believe God and to obey Him is the basis of all religion, which we must do in order to be saved: " On these two commandments dependeth the whole law and the prophets." (v. 40) If we refuse to believe in God, we are damned as infidels; and if we refuse to believe what He reveals, we are likewise damned as infidels: "he that believeth not shall be condemned." (Mk. 16:16) Bergoglio says he believes in God, and in Jesus Christ, but he explicitly rejects His teaching: " You ask me if the God of the Christians forgives those who don't believe and who don't seek the faith." Bergoglio's reply: "The issue for those who do not believe in God is to obey their conscience. Sin, even for those who have no faith, exists when people disobey their conscience." (!) (Michael Day (11 September 2013)."Pope Francis assures atheists: You don't have to believe in God to go to heaven". London: The Independent.) Thus, his remark about the redemption of atheists hinges on this perverse principle -- " [God] has redeemed all of us, all of us, with the Blood of Christ: all of us, not just Catholics. Everyone! ... Even the atheists, Everyone!” ( David Gibson (May 22, 2013). "Pope Francis: God redeemed everyone, ‘not just Catholics’". The Washington Post.) Hence, it is manifestly evident that Jorge Bergoglio is not a Christian at all, but an apostate and infidel. The incontrovertable proof consists in the fact that Bergoglio denies the very first principle and basis of all religion -- BELIEF, and he explicitly opposes, contradicts, and rejects the teaching of Christ on this most fundamental point which is the basis of all religion. Bergoglio preaches a false religion which does not require faith for salvation, but explicitly professes the opinion that men can be saved even if they don't believe in God. Thus, when Bergoglio says that all are redeemed, "even atheists" -- the clear and indisputable context of his words manifests plainly that he intends the term "redeemed" to be understood in the sense that it is used in the liturgy -- thus meaning "æterna redemptio" -- "eternal redemption" which is equivalent to "salus æterna" or "eternal salvation" -- thus, the term 'redemption' is used and understood in the cited passage by Bergoglio with the same meaning synonymous with 'salvation' as it is used in the Roman Canon: pro redemptione animarum suarum, pro spe salutis et incolumitatis suæ. Thus, Bergoglio, in addition to denying the natural law, flatly denies the most fundamental teaching of the entire Scripture and Tradition of both testaments. Infidelity is the "maximun omnium peccatorum", as St. Thomas explains. Hence, sin, for people who have no faith, is first and foremost the sin of unbelief, regardless of whether they obey their perverted conscience or not. One who denies the necessity to assent to divine revelation explicitly rejects the authority of the revealing God. Bergoglio is a manifest apostate and infidel -- and therefore is not a member of the Catholic Church, nor its visible head on earth.* Bergoglio's religion is a different religion than the Catholic religion, because his "God" is not the transcendent Catholic God, but the immanent "god" of Teilhard de Chardin and the Freemasons: "I believe in God - not in a Catholic God; there is no Catholic God." This is what he meant when he said, "God does not exist; do not be shocked" -- he's saying he believes in a god that is not the God of Christians as God and His attributes are understood by the perpetual tradition of Catholic theology and dogma. It is not mere gibberish when he says, " There is the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, they are persons, they are not some vague idea in the clouds ... This God spray does not exist! The three persons exist!"
Bergoglio's notion of the Blessed Trinity denies the infinite and eternal perfection of God by denying the infinitely perfect and eternal unity of the Divine Persons: "dentro la santissima Trinità stanno tutti litigando a porte chiuse, mentre fuori l'immagine è di unità". ("even within the Blessed Trinity they are quarelling behind closed doors, while on the outside the image is of unity".) - 17 March 2017
Jorge Bergoglio has denied the transcendent Most High God who reveals infallible dogmas and commandments (Whom he reduces to the status of a "vague idea in the clouds"; a "God spray" which "does not exist"); and has replaced Him with an immanent "god" who is not infinitely ad eternally perfect, who is "persons", and whose revelation is received not by supernatural means, but in one's conscious experience: His religion is the Enlightenment "religion" of revelation experienced in one's heart -- of an immanent Deity which reveals itself in natural human experience (i.e. the revelation of an immanent "deity" as in the doctrine of Friedrich Schleiermacher) -- the "Mother Earth" he professed on 2 June 2016, as the one who "gave us life and protects us". Thus, the absolute primacy of one's own conscience in Bergoglio's doctrine, rather than the primacy of the Law of God, manifested by divine revelation in Commandments of God, and by human reason in the natural law. Bergoglio's religion is patently that which is based on perfidious "liberal theology", (which originated with the 'father of liberal theology' Friedrich Schleiermacher), which had sprung forth from the faithless Enlightenment; and his moral doctrine likewise is the vague Enlightenment belief in the "Moral Sense", professed by the infidel Lord Shaftesbury, based on the notion of God as a "world soul" (anima mundi) that Shaftesbury professed. (Shaftesbury's prayer, quoted by Cornelio Fabro in his work Introduzione all'ateismo moderno, is addressed to God as the "universal soul.")
There cannot be salvation by means of the works of obeying one's conscience alone without supernatural faith in God, since justification cannot be accomplished by mere human works without the sanctification of justifying grace which is received by faith and not works: "For we account a man to be justified by faith, without the works of the law." (Rom. 3:28) Hence, one cannot parttake of redemption without faith: " But without faith it is impossible to please God. For he that cometh to God, must believe that he is, and is a rewarder to them that seek him." (Heb. 11:6) According to Bergoglio there can be redemption without faith. According to Divine Revelation, there can be no redemption without faith. Bergoglio does not believe the Divine Revelation -- he does not believe God who speaks in Revelation. Thus, Jorge Bergoglio is an infidel -- he is not a Catholic.
The argument that Benedict can equally be accused of heresy is utterly fallacious. In Ratzinger there is a warped understanding of Catholic doctrine based on a framework of modern philosophy; in Bergoglio, there is the patent malice of unbelief; a conscious rejection of dogma. I will present a systematic exposition on the question of the Bergoglian "pontificate" vs. the true and valid pontificate of Benedict XVI, in vol. 2 of the treatise I am writing now, with vol. 1 nearly completed.
To the objection, "Why on earth you think he’s [Benedict] any better than Francis"?
I reply: The "god" of Jorge "Francis" Bergoglio is the "world soul" (anima mundi) of Shaftesbury, Teilhard de Chardin, and the 'Ancient Mysteries' of the Pagans and Freemasons -- i.e. the pandeistic Deus sive Natura of Spinoza. The God of Pope Benedict XVI is the God of Christians -- the God of the apostles, prophets and philosophers; as he eloquently explained in his first major work, Einführung in das Christentum.
