Pope Francis Serves Waffle With Heresy Jam
Pope Francis strikes again, and much as one would avoid having to write about this disquieting man all the time, one is forced to say one or three words about it.
Rorate Caeli has the latest piece of waffle coming from the mouth of the Pontiff. Below the excerpt in its entirety.
In the Church therefore, there is a variety, a diversity of tasks and functions; there is not flat uniformity, but the wealth of gifts that the Holy Spirit distributes. However, there is communion and unity: all are in relation with each other and all combine to form a single vital body, deeply attached to Christ. Let us remember well: being part of the Church means being united to Christ and receiving from Him the divine life that makes us live as Christians, it means remaining united to the Pope and the bishops who are instruments of unity and communion, and it also means learning to overcome personal favoritisms and divisions, to understand each other better, to harmonise the variety and wealth of each one; in a word, to better love God and the people near us, in the family, in the parish, in the associations. In order to live, body and limbs must be united! Unity is superior to the conflicts, always! Conflicts, if they’re not resolved well, separate us from one another, separate us from God. Conflict can help us grow, but it can also divide us. Let’s not take the path of division, of fights among ourselves! All united, all united with our differences, but united, always: this is Jesus’ path. Unity is superior to conflicts. Unity is a grace that we must ask from the Lord, so that He may free us from the temptations of division, of struggles among us, of selfishness, of gossip. How much harm gossiping does, how much! Never gossip about the others, never! How much damage comes to the Church from divisions between Christians, from being biased, from petty self-interests!The divisions among us, but also the divisions among the communities: Evangelical Christians, Orthodox Christians, Catholic Christians, why are we divided? We must seek to bring unity. I will tell you something: today, before leaving the House [Domus Sanctae Marthae], I spent forty minutes, more or less, half an hour, with an Evangelical pastor and we prayed together, and sought unity. But we must pray among ourselves as Catholics and also with the other Christians, pray that the Lord may give us unity, unity among us. But how can we achieve unity among Christians if we Catholics are unable to achieve it among ourselves? To have it in our family? How many families fight and are divided! Seek unity, the unity that makes the Church. Unity comes from Jesus Christ. He sends us the Holy Spirit to create unity.
As always, we are served a triple portion of waffle of the usual “don’t kick the cat” variety, which seems to be the only aim Pope Francis has set for his pontificate; though here and there some trademark traits emerge (his obsession with gossip is remarkable; he must have heard confessions of women for a long time; sodomy is provocative, let’s talk about gossip!).
The biggest problem, thought, is that this Pope cannot think straight, and contradicts himself without even noticing it. And he does so, because he is either very slow (the least dangerous outcome for his soul), or not properly instructed, or willfuly heretical.
Just read the above to get an idea of the scale of the senselessness: after making himself beautiful telling us that communion with the Pope is so important and the only way of being part of the Church, he undermines what he has just said by boasting of having prayed together with a heretic, thus reinforcing him in his error, perpetuating the same divisions about which he has just complained and confusing the Catholics into thinking it is all right to pray together with a heretic. This is Assisi made a daily event, and boasted about. Can’t wait for the first Buddhist monk praying with his friend “Jorge”.
Again, one wonders whether this man is so slow that he does not realise he cannot be even coherent with what he has said forty seconds before; but whilst this Pope is certainly not a genius, to think him seriously deficient in the brains department is probably not realistic. What is more probable is that Pope Francis is so badly formed that he does not even realise the astonishing amount of senseless waffle and heretical bollocks he keeps regaling us with, and too arrogant to admit he is doing it seriously wrong and must reform his own way of thinking if he wants to be an orthodox Pope. This, provided he is interested in being an orthodox Pope in the first place, about which doubts are, at this point, certainly justified.
It is very telling that up to now no Cardinal has dared – at least to my knowledge – to correct the Pontiff. I never forgot the great Cardinal Biffi giving Pope John Paul II a very public lesson, from the pulpit of Bologna’s Cathedral, about the Doctrine of War in the days preceding the Iraq invasion in 2002. This was a Cardinal of the old school, taking his job very seriously and caring for the salvation of souls and the transmission of an intact patrimony of faith.
Compare, please, with Pope Francis’ latest utterances: he feels good when he waffles about unity, and he feels good when he undermines the same unity he has been waffling about. At all times, he sounds very much in tune with the modern thinking, with a world that does not even understand anymore that unity is already there, and those who are separated themselves from it must become part of it. In Pope Francis’ world, you can reinforce one in his heretical convictions whilst you talk about the necessity of unity with the Church, and this is fine because… well, you must ask him on his.
If you hope this Pope’s inordinate thinking and acting will be soon be dismissed as the talk of the senile uncle everyone smiles at and no one listens to, you may as well abandon hope now: this is just the kind of talking that will make him popular among the uninstructed, the skeptical and the heretics, without giving them any help to become more instructed, less skeptical or less heretical. On the contrary, by boasting of praying with a mickey mouse Protestant religious, Pope Francis is doing nothing else than actively promoting heresy.
And by the way, he seems to have counted the minutes he was praying with sufficient accuracy, but counting the rosaries with great accuracy is, to him, reason of concern. On second thoughts, one truly wonders whether this man is not just plain thick.
Make no mistake: ten years or more of Pope Francis waffling (another word comes to mind) over the Bride of Christ are going to make serious, serious damage. The sooner we open our eyes and realise the serious scale of devastation that is going on here, the sooner we will be able to react and to counter this, in our own little sphere of influence, with right Catholic thinking with those with whom we are in contact: relatives, friends, colleagues and acquaintances. We live in times where we must constantly warn our friends about the many ways in which the Pontiff tries to reshape Catholicism. I never though I’d see the day.
Still, there is no ground for panic. The Blessed Virgin is looking upon us. Everything is closely monitored up above. We are being punished for our worldliness and unbelief, and the earthly Church is being punished because Her clergy deserted the faithful. One day, sanity will reign again.
Pray the Blessed Virgin of Quito that this punishment may be taken away from us soon; and in your charity, pray for Pope Francis: a man obviously unworthy of his habit and who with his novel theology would never have made it past the seminary in pre-Vatican II times, and now made Pope. Reflect on this, and think how urgent is his need for your prayers.
My rosary today is for him.
For the avoidance of doubt, I will count.

Oh my . . .. And the EWTN crowd goes wild! This Pope will be very bad for the Church; how are we pew-sitters to uphold the Faith in front of this onslaught! I can hear all of the platitudes about our “separated Brothers and Sisters” now. And tell me why exactly did I face the wrath of my mother when she found out I was converting to the Faith? Let alone true heroes of conversion, Silly Thomas More, just should have gone along with the King. Silly Edmund Campion, why risk your life and limb to bring the sacraments to the Faithful. We all are OK now and based on logic- they must have been OK then?
Seriously, I did expect to fight “battles” in my little circle- I came in at the height of JPII’s activity. But this DAILY onslaught of “heresy”?? But I forgot- is MUST be the will of the Holy Spirit. Oh Vey!!
Extremely well put, Jeffrey.
As to your conversion, allow me to congratulate you from the heart for your courage and the will to accept conflicts even with your dearest for the sake of Truth.
Popes pass, the Church stays. She will bury this Pope as many other bad or very bad ones.
Just for clarification, my last comment about the Holy Spirit was not against the Holy Ghost- but the idea that the Holy Spirit protects the Church in a positive manner- ie every Pope is the “right man for the job”. It is my “humble” understanding that the protection granted the Church is that it is a Negative power- it only protects the Holy Father from making errors in “Official” pronouncements about Faith and Morals. Otherwise how to explain the “evil” Popes of that even EWTN type crowd admits existed.
Don’t worry, it was clear enough…
Your understanding of how a Pope is elected is, alas, better than the one of many Catholics. Papolatry and clericalism are rampart among the V II crowd. I can’t imagine this Pope will cure them much. He smiles and says what they want to hear, so he must be good.
Though it is possible that Pope Francis said this, Rorate Caeli has already been discredited. Remember Rosarygate? It turns out that it even didn’t happen, and Rorate Caeli was the only one to publish the misquote of the Pope. Therefore, I think we should be cautious in using them as a source. Vatican Radio publishes the Pope’s homilies every day, so that might be a better place to look.
No, you are wrong.
I read Rorate Caeli every day, and they have never been discredited. Not in the matter of “Rosarygate”, nor in the matter of the EF in Buenos Aires, nor in any other matter.
In the matter you mention, you may want to read my several blog post on the matter to know what has happened.
Dear Mundabor, congratulations on your blog which I discovered recently. I enjoy reading your analysis of the present situation in which we find ourselves as Catholics. As a priest, I am loyal to the Holy See, but I never thought I would ever see it descend to such a level of banality as we are witnessing now. Our new Pope’s homilies are all over the place, intellectually sloppy, and riddled with contradictions. And I think the mad rush to canonize every vatican II pope so misguided, it belittles the whole process and seems more a like an attempt to justify or obscure the carnage that has befallen the Church ever since. Keep up the good work. God bless.
Many thanks, Father!
Pray for me if you can!
My view of Pope Francis (for whom I pray every day) has been crafted by two facts: (1) As Archbishop of Buenos Aires, his seminary reeked of the post-conciliar decay and is virtually empty and (2) he promoted sodomite “civil unions” in Argentina (NOT siding with those few bishops who wanted to oppose all sodomite “unions” sponsored by the corrupt State).
Though St. Paul’s inspired Scripture makes clear that no practicing homosexuals will ever see heaven, we have a Pope who has embraced a compromise with the State to permit the institutionalization of the sodomite perversion throughout the society from whence he came. He has assisted in embedding into a nation’s societal structure a sin which cries to heaven.
I simply do not believe that most Catholics have a clue the dark abyss into which the Church is plummeting. Perhaps this is the most disturbing of all.
I agree with you.
This level of Papacy would have had educated people cry all day only 100 years ago (blessedly for them, the other would probably never even know they have a bad Pope). Nowadays they comment on his smile and tell you how he makes them “feel”.
