Francis gives Apostolic Blessing to rabbi & wife on their 70th Anniversary of their Wedding

Francis imparts the Apostolic Blessing to Laura Saxe and Erwin Schild 

[...]Collins noted that Rabbi Schild, who turns 96 on Wednesday, was a leader who has long promoted positive relations through the Christian Jewish Dialogue of Toronto, which facilitates a better understanding between the two communities.
Schild, who was born in Germany and survived the Dachau concentration camp, was Adath Israel’s spiritual leader from 1947 until 1989. The rabbi, a member of the Order of Canada, was instrumental in building up the conservative congregation, which has more than 1,800 member families.
Rev. Damian MacPherson, director of the office of ecumenical and interfaith affairs for the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Toronto, who helped push for the papal blessing, said it was an opportunity to honour the rabbi’s work as well as celebrate 70 years of marriage.
“It symbolizes the very success that dialogue has achieved,” he said in an interview. “He is probably the only rabbi in Canada who has received a papal blessing.”
In his address, Schild called the papal blessing “an astounding gift,” which requires “an exception degree of appreciation” on their part.
He added that equality and diversity are the foundations of the ideal society — noting that all human beings are equal, but are not identical. Each is irreplaceable.
“Let there be dialogue and monologue,” he said. “Let me love others for not being my copies.
“And let the diversity of our faiths not divide us, but bring us closer together.”

Why was Francis imparting his Apostolic Blessing upon the 70th Wedding Anniversary of a rabbi emeritus and his wife?
Our thesis at Call Me Jorge... is very simple.
Francis was paying the rabbi back publicly for writing the rough draft of his pontificate!


“Erwin Schild didn’t become a rabbi for nothing, a teacher who has been committed to Jewish-Christian and also Jewish-German dialogue for years. His openness reaches far beyond the Christian and Jewish religious communities. “No group, no religion has an exclusive link to the Lord of the world [sic].” (From Erwin Schild’s talk before Lutheran Christians on Reformation Day 1988 in his home town of Cologne: The World through my Window: Insights and directions of a Canadian rabbi of German descent for life in our time, Cologne 1996.) In the encounter at Dachau, too, one feels his plea to encounter people in love, kindness [charity], to show [them] compassion, humility, and a spirit of sacrifice, to seek to dialogue — in other words, to build bridges. We can find a way to a peaceful world if we “accept responsibility for the world around us, share our bread with the hungry, [and] feel that a languishing child is an intolerable blasphemy against our divine image and likeness.” (The world through my Window, Cologne 1996)”

No religion has an exclusive link to the Lord, love, compassion, kindness, humility, dialogue, build bridges, sharing, hunger, peace, blah, blah, blah...


Doesn't this sound like Francis talking?

  1. Did he bless them In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost or did he bless them in the name of Beelzebub their mutual father?

  2. Honestly, this is no big deal as one can order a Papal Blessing for a mere $20
    Requests for Papal Blessings on parchment can be sent to the Elemosineria Apostolica - Office of Papal Charities only by regular post or by fax (but not by e-mail)

    The request should include:

    - the name, surname and address of the person making the request;
    - the name and surname of the person(s) for whom the blessing is being requested;
    - the reason or occasion prompting the request;
    - the date, the name of the Church and the address are required when the blessing is requested for the celebration of a sacrament, a religious profession or an anniversary;
    - the address of where to send the parchment and payment details.

    The payment should be made after you receive the Papal blessing. It is possible to make the payment in one of two ways:

    - via a bank transfer (the banking coordinates will be sent to you in the same parcel as the parchment)
    - or by online credit card payment via our website.

    The account will reflect:

    - the cost of the parchment (ranging from 13 to 25 euros according to the model chosen by the office for the specific occasion)
    - and the postage costs (outside Italy according to the destination). For normal postage 10-16 euros or with express courier (DHL) 18-30 euros.

  3. Note how the pectoral cross is covered up..."For he that shall be ashamed of me, and of my words, in this adulterous and sinful generation: the Son of man also will be ashamed of him, when he shall come in the glory of his Father with the holy angels." Mark 8:38

  5. Have you seen this?:

    Gloria.TV News on the 29th of April 2016
    Chaos Reigns: The famous German philosopher Robert Spaemann, a close friend of Benedict XVI, said to CNA that Amoris Laetitia contradicts Church teaching when opening a door for mortal sinners to receive Communion. Quote: “That this is an evident break, is clear for any thinking person who knows the relevant texts.” For Spaemann Amoris Laetitia produces uncertainty and confusion. Quote: “Chaos was turned into a principle.

    Future Pope? Spaemann believes that Pope Francis should have known that he would divide the Church with Amoris Laetitia. Quote: “If the Pope is not ready to make corrections, it will be the task of a future Pontiff to bring things back into balance.”

    Saturday morning, Pope Francis will hold a special Jubilee Audience for the Rotary Club in Rome and Sardinia. Rotary is a secular organization, which unites rich business and professional leaders. It is involved with groups that promote abortion and population control. Since 1999 Francis is an honorary member of the rich men’s Rotary Club of Buenos Aires.

    1. I'm sorry to have to report that he (Francis) isn't going to divide anything. He knows (as do his handlers) that the time is perfectly right for Amoris.
      If the Church wasn't divided after Vatican II, it won't be divided now. The Novus Ordo sectarians are perfectly happy with Amoris. Those who aren't (and it's a small minority) will suck it up and either leave entirely or stay, grit their teeth, and say, "oh well, it's the way things are nowadays" and then go home and watch football. Either way, those in the Vatican and Tel Aviv don't give a damn. They don't need anyone in the pews. The Vatican Bank is perfectly capable of continuing without any further donations from the idiots in the pews. They own vast amounts of land and have swindled untold amounts of booty via usury for hundreds of years. They don't need the pittling donations from the Novus Ordoites. It's only a matter of time until those who actually own the Vatican (read Tel Aviv) come out into the open about it. Even that won't get any reaction. No one cares. The pews are filled with automatons.

  6. Why would Bergoglio impart an 'apostolic' (sic) blessing on these 2 Talmudists when:
    A. Bergoglio isn't even a priest so he can't impart a blessing, apostolic or otherwise; and
    B. Schild is a Talmudist Judaic who doesn't want or desire his 'blessing', since, as a Talmudist he despises the Apostles and those who have proper Apostolic succession; and
    C. as a Talmudist Judaic, Schild is required to daily recite the prayer which thanks his 'god' that his 'god' didn't create him a as a Gentile, a slave, or a woman (so much for the slavery in Egypt story)?
    It's likely Schild doesn't find it objectionable to receive this very public pseudo-blessing, since Bergoglio is in fact, not a validly ordained Catholic priest and therefore the 'blessing' is meaningless AND it's also likely Schild doesn't find it objectionable since Bergolgio shows himself to be a crypto-Talmudic-Judaic, certainly in deed, and highly likely in fact.
    This is ecumenical junk for Novus Ordo sectarians.

    1. It's very simple, he's Talmudist Judaic too, pope, pardon, Bishop of Rome by chance, that's our tragedy.

    2. I don't call it 'our tragedy'. I call it a criminal takeover.

      And since he isn't a validly ordained priest, he can't possibly be a bishop, nor a pope. Nor does he profess the Catholic Faith. Therefore, he isn't Catholic. It's no tragedy for me; only a prolongation of a criminal enterprise which started hundreds of years ago.

    3. My father still to this day,defends "the Church"
      It's unbelievable that people who say they're "Catholic" stay in the invalid Anglican-esque Novus Ordo.
