Would you expect otherwise?
Yesterday, the13th of October, was the 99th anniversary of the sixth apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary at Fatima, Portugal. This was the last day the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to the children at Fatima and is famous for its “Miracle of the Sun”. Do you think Francis mentioned this? Nope!
Coincidentally also yesterday, the Pakistani-Christian mother of five sitting on death row for believing in Christ (she was found guilty of blasphemy against Islam), Asia Bibi was to have her appeal heard. Did Francis ask for prayers? Of course not!
Instead he had a private audience with Diego Maradona.
Compare the time Francis spent yet again with Diego Maradona in another private audience above with Francis meeting Asia Bibi’s family at a general audience (15 April 2015) below.
What about the poor, the destitute, and the last?
The ‘peripheries’ don’t include Asia!
Guess who else Francis had time to meet with during his busy day?
If the first person who popped into your mind was Bp. Bernard Fellay, then you would be correct!
Bp. Fellay & Francis — in lieu of a photo from the short meeting.
This is no joke! Bp. Fellay, accompanied by Fr. Alain-Marc Nély and Fr. Niklaus Pfluger, briefly met with Francis in Casa Santa Marta. The trio were at the Vatican to ‘dialogue’ with Cardinal Gerhard Ludwig Müller, Archbishop Luis Ladaria Ferrer, and Archbishop Guido Pozzo about returning to ‘modernist’ Rome.
Francis was just getting warmed up for the big event of his day.
Care to take a guess as to what it was?
That’s right, he honored Martin Luther and his 95 theses!
Since the heresiarch Martin Luther now has a statue — is sainthood far away?
The cover of the program for this monstrosity.
Yes, on the 13th of October, Francis had a private audience in the Paul VI Hall with around 1,000 Lutherans who were on an ecumenical pilgrimage to the Vatican. This took place roughly two weeks before Francis will visit Sweden (October 31st to November 1st) where he will participate in an ecumenical service with the Lutheran World Federation celebrating the 500th anniversary of the beginning of Martin Luther’s revolt. The following excerpts in the tan boxes below are taken from Iacopo Scaramuzzi’s article, Pope: Those who defend Christ but turn away refugees are hypocrites, published by La Stampa’s Vatican Insider. Care to make a stab guessing at what he told them? Hint: it wasn’t Catholic and *heresy alert*.

The Lutheran pilgrims eat it up!
Surprise, Francis was feeling smug!
Look a gift for Francis from the Lutheran pilgrims.
Why it’s Martin Luther’s 95 theses!
Francis loves books especially when they are written by rabbis or heresiarchs!
Francis honoring the arch-heretic Luther instead of Our Lady.
Francis never shies away from a photo-op nor a symbolic gesture.

Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah...
Francis is counting with excitement the days until he goes to Sweden.
Now that we have read the some of Francis’ speech to the Lutheran pilgrims and a few of the exchanges he had with them, let’s examine some of Martin Luther’s words. The following quotes (blasphemies and heresies) are taken from Tradition In Action’s The Blasphemies of Luther.
Besides both having big appetites, Luther and Francis are loquacious.
“Christ committed adultery first of all with the women at the well of Jacob about whom St. John wrote. ‘Was not everyone around Him murmuring: What has He been doing with her?’ After that, with Mary Magdalene, and then with the woman taken in adultery whom He dismissed so lightly. Thus, even Christ, who was so righteous, had to be guilty of fornication before He died.”
Francis like Luther is obsessed with himself.
“Don’t you think that the drunk Christ, having imbibed too much at the Last Supper, bewildered His disciples with his empty prattling?”
Luther is correct since the creation of the Talmudic-Protestant mess known
as the Novus Ordo the papacy has been turned on its head.
“When the Mass will be turned on its head, we will have turned the papacy on its head! Because it is upon the Mass, like a rock, that the papacy is completely supported, with its monasteries, bishoprics, colleges, altars, ministries and doctrine… All this will tumble down when this sacrilegious and abominable Mass tumbles.”
Does Luther like Francis think the Tridentine Latin Mass is a passing fashion?
On the Canon of the Tridentine Latin Mass: “This abominable Canon is a collection of muddled lacunas; … it makes the Mass a sacrifice; offertories are added. The mass is not a sacrifice or the action of one who sacrifices. We see it as a sacrament or a testament. Let us call it a blessing, the eucharist, the table of the Lord or the memorial of the Lord.”
The statue of Martin Luther gazes at Francis in the Paul VI Hall.
On his own behavior: “From morning to evening I do nothing and am drunk. You ask me why I drink so much, why I speak so loquaciously and why I eat so often. It is to fool the Devil who comes to torment me. … It is by eating, drinking, and laughing in this way, and then some more, and even by committing some sin, that I challenge and despise Satan, trying to replace the thoughts the Devil suggests with others, as for example, thinking with avarice of a beautiful girl or in a drunken stupor. Otherwise, I would be too furious.”
Who wants to bet Francis eagerly reads through the 95 theses?
“If we condemn thieves to be hanged, burglars to the scaffold, and heretics to the fire, why should we not use all our weapons against these doctors of perdition, these cardinals, these popes, the whole sequel of the Roman Sodom, so that they will not corrupt the Church of God? Why should we not wash our hands in their blood?”
Francis like Luther, the rabbis, and all modernists thinks he knows better than God.
“Certainly God is great and almighty, good and merciful and all that one can imagine in this sense, but He is stupid.”
Why on the 13th of October did Francis neglect to say anything publicly about the Blessed Virgin Mary? About the “Miracle of the Sun” in Fatima, Portugal? After all he even found time to say hello to Bp. Fellay! Instead Francis condemned proselytizing the Catholic faith, said that reformers are saints and alluded to Luther being a reformer, said that Lutherans have more in common with him than not, used the Protestant definition of grace, and finally condemned those who are not welcoming of the Moslem invaders (what Francis calls ‘refugees’) in Europe. Martin Luther once said, “O pope, while living I was your plague, and dying I will be your death.” And yet Francis honored this man today by placing a statue of him on a table in Paul VI Hall. Why? What makes Francis do these things? For those who pine for the reign of Benedict XVI, recall it was actually Benedict XVI’s idea to commemorate the 500th anniversary of Luther’s Revolution.
Luther and Francis — Two peas in a pod?
It’s all in a day’s work for the ‘humble’ revolutionary!
