the gospel according to Francis

The Sanctity of Negotiations

It appears that Francis believes himself to be a prophet of the ‘fresh air’ of Vatican II.


“In addition, these people had seen the rigidity of those scribes and Pharisees and when a prophet came to give them a bit of joy, they (the scribes and Pharisees) persecuted them and even murdered them; there was no place for prophets there. And Jesus said to them, to the Pharisees: ‘you have killed the prophets, you have persecuted the prophets: those who were bringing fresh air.’”


“The same day, there came some of the Pharisees, saying to him: Depart, and get thee hence, for Herod hath a mind to kill thee. And he said to them: Go and tell that fox, Behold, I cast out devils, and do cures today and tomorrow, and the third day I am consummated. Nevertheless I must walk today and tomorrow, and the day following, because it cannot be that a prophet perish, out of Jerusalem. Jerusalem, Jerusalem, that killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent to thee, how often would I have gathered thy children as the bird doth her brood under her wings, and thou wouldest not? Behold your house shall be left to you desolate. And I say to you, that you shall not see me till the time come, when you shall say: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.”

 Was Christ flexible with Pilate? We think not!


“This (is the) healthy realism of the Catholic Church: the church never teaches us ‘this or that.’ That is not Catholic. The church says to us: ‘this and that.’ ‘Strive for perfectionism: reconcile with your brother. Do not insult him. Love him. And if there is a problem, at the very least settle your differences so that war doesn’t break out.’ This [is] the healthy realism of Catholicism. It is not Catholic [to say] ‘this or nothing:’ This is not Catholic, this is heretical. Jesus always knows how to accompany us, he gives us the ideal, he accompanies us towards the ideal, He frees us from the chains of the laws' rigidity and tells us: ‘But do that up to the point that you are capable.’ And he understands us very well. He is our Lord and this is what he teaches us.”

“And he entered into the hall again, and he said to Jesus: Whence art thou? But Jesus gave him no answer. Pilate therefore saith to him: Speakest thou not to me? knowest thou not that I have power to crucify thee, and I have power to release thee? Jesus answered: Thou shouldst not have any power against me, unless it were given thee from above. Therefore, he that hath delivered me to thee, hath the greater sin.”
— Gospel According to Saint John 19, 9-11 —

Did Christ negotiate with Herod?  Nope, he remained silent.


“And allow me to use this word that seems a bit strange: it’s the tiny sanctity of negotiations. ‘So, I can’t do everything but I want to do everything, therefore I reach an agreement with you, at least we don’t trade insults, we don’t wage a war and we can all live in peace.’ Jesus is a great person! He frees us from all our miseries and also from that idealism which is not Catholic. Let us implore our Lord to teach us, first to escape from all rigidity but also to go out beyond ourselves, so we can adore and praise God who teaches us to be reconciled amongst ourselves and who also teaches us to reach an agreement up to the point that we are able to do so.”


“And Herod, seeing Jesus, was very glad; for he was desirous of a long time to see him, because he had heard many things of him; and he hoped to see some sign wrought by him. And he questioned him in many words. But he answered him nothing.”
— Gospel According to Saint Luke 23, 8-9 —


“It is not Catholic [to say] ‘this or nothing:’ This is not Catholic, this is heretical.” 
“He that is not with me, is against me: and he that gathereth not with me, scattereth.”


  1. Where in the Gospel does Christ compromise ? with those who vehemently opposed Him.

  2. Brilliant comparison of a Protestant heresiarch using his private judgement in opposition - and hypocritically very much this OR that - to True Catholicism couched in the very words of Christ.

  3. I hear he's going to make a special video message to the contracepting, sterilized, divorced and remarried protestant heretics gathering on the DC Mall on The Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. Bet he doesn't mention Our Lady once to the protestants--just like he's never ever made time to speak to those, mainly Catholics, coming out in January to protest the unjust 1973 Supreme Court decision stating mothers have a 'right' to murder their child in the womb (and fathers have no say in the matter). He's a lying, stinking, rotten evil, pervert murderer--and yet so many 'prolifers' follow him and their parish fairy devil straight down into hell as he praises great communist abortionists, CRS murderers (they gave us a $700 grant for our soup kitchen), and sodomite pedophiles.

    2016 Rice Bowl Program: The St. Hugh School of Religion
    and the Ladies of Charity will again be sponsoring the
    Rice Bowl Program. The rice bowls will be blessed at
    the 9:30am Mass this Sunday. The St. Hugh Food Pantry
    received a local Rice Bowl Grant for $700 this past
    year. These funds helped tremendously during the summer
    months when donations to the pantry are fewer. In
    the Year of Mercy,

  4. Considering well the contempt directed at non-white or non-Catholic people on this blog, whether a post by a writer or a commentator, you must really consider if you are going to ultimately end up in the same camp as the Pharisees, despite your zeal for true Catholic doctrine. Don't build your house on sand by only believing the faith, but live it also. Jesus didn't criticize the Pharisees for keeping the law, but for neglecting matters more weightier than the law. If you want an idea on what will be considered weightier than the laws and traditions of the Church just read the gospel accounts of the Last Judgement. They are necessary to keep (no questions here!) but ultimately insufficient for salvation.
