Blasphemies in Francis' book, Rome and Jerusalem: Rabbi Talks with Pope

Hebrew language book, Rome and Jerusalem: Rabbi Talks with Pope.

We tire of writing about the Talmudic blasphemies against Our Lord, Jesus the Christ and the Catholic Faith but few seem willing to point them out.  Back in Argentina in 2010, Jorge Mario Bergoglio and Abraham Skorka published a book together from their conversations about religion, economics, morality, life, science, etc...  It was named, Sobre el cielo y la tierra.  After Bergoglio was elected to the papacy in 2013, it was reissued in a new Spanish edition as well as translated into English as On Heaven and Earth: Pope Francis on Faith, Family, and the Church in the Twenty-First Century.  It was considered such an important work it was eventually translated into Hebrew in 2014.

The Hebrew edition is entitled “About Rome and Jerusalem: The conversations between a Pope and a Rabbi”. It is beautifully translated, attractively presented and has a series of footnotes to help the Jewish reader negotiate the Christian passages in the text. It is good preparatory reading for the upcoming pilgrimage of the Pope. President of Israel Shimon Peres endorsed the book with the words: “Their conversations forge confidence, arouse inspiration and bestow hope for peace”.

Interestingly when Call Me Jorge... ran the Hebrew title (על רומא וירושלים :שיחות בין אפיפיור לרב) through several online Hebrew to English translation programs they gave us, Rome and Jerusalem: Rabbi Talks with Pope.  A slightly different slant to the title which brings to mind the title of the magnum opus of Moses Hess, The Revival of Israel: Rome and Jerusalem.  On the website of the Saint James Vicariate For Hebrew Speaking Catholics in Israel an article, Bergoglio and Skorka in Hebrew, it mentions that Our Lord, Jesus the Christ is referred to in the book as "Yeshu" (the rabbinical acronym for "May his name and his memory be wiped out" which also appears in Francis' favorite piece of art, White Crucifixion by Marc Chagall) and priests are referred to as "komer" or idol worshipers.

Is this a joke? We fear not. Francis sends one message to those he says have never had their covenant revoked by God and are one of the sacred roots of Christian identity while simultaneously sending another to those who fill the pews in his macabre mockery of mercy for all but those who hold to the Faith.  Call Me Jorge... checked the Spanish and English language editions of the book and both Abraham Skorka & Jorge Mario Bergoglio hold copyrights.  Are we to believe the humble man who answers his own letters with cold-calls and gives impromptu invitations to the Vatican to all manner of revolutionaries doesn't know his book has these blasphemies against God in them?  Recall this is also the same man who never offends the Moslem religion and who gives unfounded respect to the Talmudic religion of the rabbis.  Who knows all the halakhic minutiae?  Who tells blasphemous jokes about Our Lord?  (See, Last Lunch)  Why Francis does!  As we have written here before,

"But yet the Son of man, when he cometh, shall he find, think you, faith on earth?"
- Luke 18 : 8 -


  1. Bergoglio definitely ain't working for Jesus Christ -- hard to believe so many (including SSPX) want to keep walkin' w/him on a pilgrimage to hell. I agree w/you that they have absolutely no faith in Jesus Christ if they can go along w/a man who is directly contradicting St. John the Baptist. I could hardly believe my ears 8/29/11 when I heard a 'priest' on the feast of St. John the Baptist's beheading that say in a sermon that Herod and Herodias' was a love story proven by they died together in Gaul. I couldn't understand how this 'priest' could come up w/something so evil; I walked out and never went back (figured safer to pray at abortion clinic w/out benefit of 'mass'), but I was the only one who did. And now when Bergoglio and the Germans are announcing the same thing I know where he got his putrid crap but I don't see any mass exodus. It's like they've convinced themselves that they have important 'pundit' jobs to convince jq Catholic that sticking w/the devil or the wolves is the way to follow Jesus Christ. Never seen so many so deceived. Can't imagine what Jesus is going to say to them at their judgment. But I do believe they are going to get ordered out of heaven (condemned to hell), for being too smug and fat to follow St. John the Baptist and Jesus Christ into the desert.

  2. His affinity w/the Jews (and indeed VC2 adherents affinity w/'the world' and all 'religions') is that they both deny the divinity of Jesus Christ. That is the central heresy of VC2.

  3. The book cover reminds me of an article about the Kabbalist Luria which I recently found.
    A black rabbi and a white pope hug each other, isn´t that a "dialectical blending of opposites"?

    BTW, the following kabbalistic text reminds me of the theology of the Pope´s theologian; Cardinal Kasper:

    The Mitigation of Judgment by Kindness:
    The development of the world is understood by the Lurianists and other Kabbalists as a dialectical blending of opposites.
    One opposition, which plays a critical role in the Lurianic conception of Tikkun ha-Olam, the moral dichotomy between Chesed (Kindness) and Din (Judgment) was singled out by the Kabbalists for special consideration.
    According to the Zohar, earlier worlds were destroyed because the aspect of severe judgment within them was not mitigated by kindness and beneficence.

    The temperance of judgment by kindness (and vice versa) is the foundation of theSefirah Rachamim (Mercy, Compassion) which the Kabbalists came to equate with Emeth, "Truth."
    The pursuit of a balance between Kindness and Judgment (a balance which according toCordovero must be weighted slightly in the direction of kindness), is a critical aspect of Tikkun ha-Olam.

  4. Not to be outdone by the papal visit, Rebbe Skorka will also be busy in Philadelphia.

    The Golden Jubilee of Nostra Aetate (Sept 25 2015) is now upon us and Rebbe Skorka will be the keynote at an interfaith event at St Joseph's University.

    St Joseph U and the combined leadership of the Philadelphia Jewish community will dedicate a bronze statue: "Synagoga and Ecclesia for our time" to commemorate the Golden Jubilee. Brace yourselves for the unveiling:

    An outsize 'Synagoga" muscling back a more passive "Ecclesia" as the two sit side by side - the one with a the whole megillah and the other with a much smaller book.

    St Joseph U is going to display this monstrousity in the plaza outside the University chapel. Unfortunately not with an inscription fitting for the synagogue such as:

    "...the Jews who both killed the Lord Jesus Christ and the prophets and drove us out. They are not pleasing to God, but hostile to all men, hindering us from speaking to the Gentiles that they might be saved, filling up the measure of their sins always. But wrath has come upon them to the uttermost." 1 Thess 2:15
