Who's showing up at Francis' general audiences?

We have extensively covered the decline in attendance at the general audiences of Francis (click here).  Now we begin to examine, just who shows up to hear Francis blabber on and on?  Before we get to who was in attendance, a few screenshots from Radio Vaticana's television coverage of Wednesday's general audience (27 January 2016).  For those who are curious, it was 59 degrees that day.


 Look at that empty square!

 Don't they give away tickets for free to these things?

Better crop out all those empty seats for the weekly kissing of children.

 Keep waving and pretend mobs of people are there to see you, Francis.

 Even the homeless no longer fill the empty seats.

 Where did all the people go?

  Francis' VIP guest box is empty too.

That's it, they must all be in line for the Holy Door!


So who was in attendance?


- Clowns!!!

 Francis wasn't the only clown performing this day!

 Every day is a circus when Francis opens his mouth!

 Who's the funny one here?

 A clown convention in St. Peter's Square.

Francis greets the immodestly dressed clowns.



That's not a clown, it's Cardinal Schönborn!


- Teenage girls!!!

An excited mob to see Francis.

Look! It's teenage fan girls!

They must be overjoyed real men from moslem countries are coming to take them as brides rather than the politically-correct neutered men they have in their respective countries!

“Thanks for all the Moslem men!!!”

 A bird's-eye view of the poorly attended general audience.


For those who want to suffer, here is the entire general audience.

Blasphemoglio: A Chronicle of Impiety

A MUST READ!!!




Miles Christi was kind enough to send us his latest paper.  It is 23 pages of one blasphemous quote after another which have come from the mouth of Francis.  Christi organizes all these and puts them together in a framework which gives the reader a peak into the mind of anti-Catholic Francis.  A great service has been done by Miles Christi by writing this paper, please keep him and others like him in your prayers in these days of desolation.

Is it Francis’ god of surprises?


We at Call Me Jorge... have no clue other than the description (which we copy & paste below) as to what is going on in this video.  Thanks to the reader who sent us this video.

Refining his shtick from Jorge to Francis

 the dress rehearsal

on the world's stage

Francis message to the youth, “life...is...the endless party”

Party like it's a Jubilee Year!

“It is a time when we can discover that life together as brothers and sisters is like a great party, perhaps the most beautiful party we can imagine, the endless party that Jesus has taught us to celebrate by his Spirit. The Jubilee is the party to which Jesus invites us all, without excluding anyone.”
— Francis, 6 January 2016 



And if one enjoyed that advice to the youth, be sure to purchase the new children's book published by Loyola Press and written by Francis which is full of Francis' radical guidance.

A reading from the koran at Christmas Mass

Yep, you guessed it! This man is a priest. His name is don Giusto della Valle.
His parish is San Martino di Rebbio (Como), Italy.

Don della Valle is a lover of the Islamic faith.  Like Francis, della Valle also has a big soft spot for “refugees” whether they come from Africa, the Middle East, or Asia.  Want to practice your heretical faith but don't have a building?  Don Giusto will make an arrangement with you.  Not only does he fast during Ramadan with moslems he also celebrated Eid al-Fitr.  He has even coined a term for doing this and calls himself a “Ramadan Catholic”.  In 2011 he requested the city of Como to, “reopen the mosque”.  He feels he is correct and has said in the past,  

“that Christmas should be a time of meeting between people, between the representatives of different religions in full mutual respect.They can build bridges of dialogue freely between people and religions, using a time that you could use to create peace in our surroundings.”  

After all don Guisto sees an ally in Francis,

“It seems to me that the lines of Pope Francis on integration indicate exactly which path to follow.”

On the blog for the Parish of St. Martin of Rebbio - Como there is post for Christmas Day titled,
un Buon Natale speciale alla comunità di Rebbio, nel segno del dialogo interreligioso.  Below we translate the introduction to the post and then cover some of what was said.

A special Merry Christmas to the community of Rebbio, under the banner of interreligious dialogue

This morning at the end at the end of the celebration of Christmas Mass of 10am, the parish community of Rebbio upheld the cultural association  Assirat (COMO), Associazione Culturale that takes care of the Lebanese Shiite Muslim community in Italy.

It was, in my opinion, thanks to the work carried out by don Giusto in recent years, a great moment of dialogue with his eyes on the horizon always directed towards peace, very important in this period of religious misunderstandings. (Ed. opinion of Marco Ponte)

Nour Fayed reading from the koran from the pulpit.


Nour Fayad read this:
In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
When the angels said: "O Mary, Allah gives you good tidings of a Word from Him: his name is the Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, honored in this world and the hereafter, and one of the closest.
Holy Quran 3-45


Abdul Aziz giving a speech from the pulpit.


Nour Fayad was followed by Abdul Aziz who gave a speech. Excerpts below:

[...]This year the date of his birth coincides with that of the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him.

In recent times all conflicts in the world have brought division and mistrust between peoples and religions. But God willed that these holy days coincided to make it a symbol of closeness and brotherhood and to indicate to us that there is no distance or difference in the way to God.
I come from Lebanon ... the land of the cedars, the village of Cana, where Jesus did the first miracle, where there have been miraculous transformations, and we hope for a prominent appearance of the Messiah to this world to transform the whole 'hatred into love and enmity in brotherhood,

I am honored to be with you, as a Muslim, in this church to homage on the occasion of this holy celebration, because we are brothers in creation.

[...]And as God Almighty says in the Holy Qur'an: "Take hold together to the rope of Allah and be not divided among yourselves ...". (Qur'an 3-103)

We cling to the rope of God and from there proclaim our message that there is no compulsion in religion and that religion of God on earth is love, coexistence and peace.

Who says he has no other religion.

Accepting our presence between you, your party, it's a sign that, God willing, we all cling to His rope, and we set off together on His straight path.

Thank you, don Giusto for over three years ago he opens the doors of this parish to celebrate the events and cultural rituals of our faith and for giving me a chance to be here to bring our message...

So is don della Valle correct in saying he believes he is following Francis on the path he set?  We at Call Me Jorge... would have to say yes.  In Francis’ apostolic letter, Misericordiae Vultus, in section 23 one reads:

23. There is an aspect of mercy that goes beyond the confines of the Church. It relates us to Judaism and Islam, both of which consider mercy to be one of God’s most important attributes. Israel was the first to receive this revelation which continues in history as the source of an inexhaustible  richness meant to be shared with all mankind. As we have seen, the pages of the Old Testament are steeped in mercy, because they narrate the works that the Lord performed in favour of his people at the most trying moments of their history. Among the privileged names that Islam attributes to the Creator are “Merciful and Kind”. This invocation is often on the lips of faithful Muslims who feel themselves accompanied and sustained by mercy in their daily weakness. They too believe that no one can place a limit on divine mercy because its doors are always open. 
I trust that this Jubilee year celebrating the mercy of God will foster an encounter with these religions and with other noble religious traditions; may it open us to even more fervent dialogue so that we might know and understand one another better; may it eliminate every form of closed-mindedness and disrespect, and drive out every form of violence and discrimination.


Happy whatever don Guisto & his “Ramadan Catholics” call it!

Q: “Speaking of Pope Francis, is the delegated jurisdiction which was granted to the priests of the Society of St. Pius X in the moto proprio about the ‘Year of Mercy’ a sign that the Holy Father wants to resolve the canonical status of the Society?”

ISIS: the boast & the reveal.


The Boast...

“In Syria, if the choice is between Iran and the Islamic State, I choose the Islamic State.”


Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon speaking on 19 January 2016
Speaking at the Institute for National Security Studies' (INSS) conference in Tel Aviv on Jan. 19, Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon made a bold statement: If he had to choose between Iran and the Islamic State, he told the audience, he'd "choose ISIS."

Ya'alon reasoned that Iran had greater capabilities than the Islamic State and remained the biggest threat for Israel. He argued that if Syria were to fall to one of the two powers, he would prefer it were the Islamic State rather than Iran or Iran-backed groups. "We believe ISIS will be eventually defeated territorially after the blows it has been suffering, and in light of the attacks on its oil reserves," he told the conference, according to Ynetnews.

[...]Israel shared common interests with the regional Sunni Muslim powers, who were also threatened by the Shia Muslim Iran.

[...]The comment did seem to highlight a widespread belief in Israeli defense circles – that the Islamic State is not a big problem for Israel and that Iran and Iran-backed groups like Hezbollah are of a bigger concern. This belief has been born out in policy: Israel has largely avoided any involvement in the fight against the Islamic State but has struck Hezbollah inside Syria.[...]He has also dismissed the idea that the Islamic State was a direct threat to Israel. "ISIS is a new phenomenon, originating from al-Qaeda. This is not a threat for us," he told The Washington Post's Lally Waymouth in 2014.

— Ya’alon’s actions
Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon pens the first letter of a Torah scroll written for the security of the troops. To his left is the sofer, Rabbi Mordechai Lishner; on his right is Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Aharonov, director of the Chabad Youth Organization in Israel.

Israel’s Defense Minister Moshe “Bogie” Ya’alon set aside a few minutes on Thursday to write the first letter in a new Torah scroll being written in Israel in the merit of the soldiers.

Using a quill pen, he wrote the letter bet, of the word Bereishit (“In the Beginning”) on the parchment scroll. Letters will be dedicated to every soldier in the Israel Defense Forces—those currently on active duty, as well as all reservists.

The sofer, or scribe, is Rabbi Mordechai Lishner of Kfar Chabad in Israel.

Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Aharonov, director of the Chabad Youth Organization in Israel, said during the ceremony: “We are assured that every soldier for whom a letter has been written in this special Torah will feel an added measure of security. In our tradition, the letters of the Torah are especially potent with regards to safety and security, and we felt it incumbent upon us to deploy this spiritual means of security for our troops.”

The defense minister then wrapped tefillin and recited a short prayer.

Aharonov emphasized the importance of encouraging Jewish men everywhere to don tefillin, pointing to the “Tefillin Campaign” launched by the Rebbe—Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of righteous memory—before the Six-Day War in 1967, noting that: “The nations of the world will see that the name of G‑d is called upon you, and they will fear you.” (Deuteronomy 28:10)

A touch screen blessing!

Francis has the strange notion in his head that a papal blessing takes place whenever he touches someone. We at Call Me Jorge... have only seen him make the sign of the cross once when conducting a blessing and even then it was to a video camera.  Below, Francis takes it to an all-new level.

Happy Day of Judaism!

Tomorrow is the day!



Riccardo Di Segni on Francis, “We are waiting for a surprise.”




“Francis’s visit to the synagogue will be far closer to a family reunion precisely because the blessed new positive Catholic-Jewish relationship has become almost normative, and Francis is overwhelmingly seen as a true friend of the Jewish people, which indeed he is,” said Rabbi David Rosen, the American Jewish Committee’s international director for interreligious affairs.

Rosen added, “Three in Jewish tradition is a hazakah — that is, a confirmation. And now,” after this third papal visit, “it will almost be impossible for a pontiff not to visit the Rome Great Synagogue as well as to visit the State of Israel.”

Francis' rabbi, Abraham Skorka, weighs in on the the ‘humble’ bishop of Rome's upcoming trip to the Great Synagogue of Rome

(Call Me Jorge...'s note: underlines in the interview are ours for emphasis.)


Two revolutionary buddies for life, Skorka and Bergoglio.



Interview with the Argentinian rabbi, a friend of Francis '' Bergoglio had a very special bond with the Jewish community. His contribution is a call to build on dialogue through exegetical and theological studies, while at the same time reinforcing the commitment towards a common effort in making the world a fairer and more just place "

Andrea Tornielli for La Stampa, 15 January 2016, Vatican City

Pope Francis is the first Pope in the Roman Catholic Church to have published a book containing lengthy conversations with a rabbi, before His election. Abraham Skorka, the 65-year-old rector of the Latin American Rabbinical Seminary, became a great friend of the then archbishop Bergoglio. On Sunday 17 January the Pope will visit the Synagogue of Rome, the great Jewish temple that stands beyond the Tiber, a short distance from the Vatican. This will be the third time a Bishop of Rome enters the Synagogue, following John Paul II's historic visit in 1986 and that of his successor Benedict XVI, in 2010. 
Rabbi Skórka, what was Archbishop Bergoglio's relationship with Argentina's Jewish community like? How did you come to write a book on your conversation together? 
“The former Archbishop of Buenos Aires, Cardinal Bergoglio, had a very special bond with the Argentinian Jewish community, demonstrated in numerous gestures, with which he expressed in profound commitment to relations with it and through it with Judaism as a whole. He forged some very deep and fond relationships like the one between us. This friendship, which grew through various encounters, in the sense Buber usually attributed to this term, allowed us to speak freely, without euphemisms. And so we wrote a book of conversations together, offering a joint analysis of the issues that are of greatest concern to mankind today. We went on to produce 31 television programmes with Marcelo Figueroa.”
What was the distinguishing feature - if any - in Francis' approach to the dialogue with Jewish faithful? And what are the elements of continuity with his predecessors?
“On the one hand, Francis has continued the process of dialogue between Jews and Catholics begun by John XXIII and significantly furthered by John Paul II. At the same time, though, he left His own imprint on the development of this dialogue. If we take a close look at the Evangelii Gaudium chapter on relations with Judaism (247-249) , we see that, just as John Paul II and Benedict XVI viewed the Jewish people as their “elder brothers” in the faith and the eternal validity of the Alliance between Israel and God, described in the Jewish Bible, so the current Pope reserves a special place for them in his apostolic exhortation. Despite the fact the first articles in the aforementioned chapter emphasise only the teachings of his predecessors, the final paragraph mentions what Francis has to say on the subject. ‘God continues to act through the people of the Ancient Alliance and brings forth treasures of wisdom that derive from its encounter with the divine Word.  As such the Church too is enriched by the values ​​of Judaism... There is a rich complementarity that allows us to read the texts of the Jewish Bible and help each other to explore the Word’s riches’. In Buenos Aires we analysed verses from the Jewish Bible together on many occasions. It was a fundamental part of our dialogue. As Bergoglio was Grand Chancellor of the Pontifical Catholic University of Argentina, the institution awarded me an honoris causa degree. The intention of this gesture was very clear: to honor and take into consideration the cultural and religious contribution of a rabbi in a majority Christian society. Francis’ contribution in his call to build on dialogue through exegetical and theological study while at the same time reinforcing the commitment towards a common effort in making the world a fairer and more just place. We are at the start of a journey that is taking us in this direction. This journey requires a great deal of reflection and intellectual and spiritual digging, as well as a compromise in the face of the big dramas affecting humanity at present.
How do you interpret the history of Catholic-Jewish relations over the past 60years? Which was the path chosen by John XXIII? And what contribution did John Paul II make?
“John XXIII could see very clearly that Europe and the world was entering a new phase after World War Two, which called for a response and a message from the religions. So he laid the foundations for the Second Vatican Council. Having witnessed the tragedy of the Holocaust first hand and having saved the lives of many Jews as an apostolic delegate in Constantinople, he strove to do something about the lack of dialogue - which frequently implies hatred - between Jews and Christians and reverse this situation . In the new world that was to be built, that stain of blood and death needed to be removed. The Nostra Aetate was the consequence of the great work he did in this field. This declaration acted as a catalyst for dialogue Jews and Christians engaged in on different levels. The process progressed through the subsequent declarations made ​​by the Vatican commission for dialogue with Judaism. John Paul II was the second great advocate of the process’s continuity and development. His request for forgiveness for the mistakes the Church had made in relation to the Jewish people in the past, His historic visit to the Great Synagogue of Rome, the establishment of full diplomatic relations between the Vatican and the State of Israel, the prayers he said at the (Western, Ed.) Wall are all signs that will shed his light on Jewish-Christian relations forevermore.
John Paul II's visit to the Great Synagogue of Rome in 1986 was a historic event. What recollection do you have of it? What can you say about Benedict XVI and his very deep theological reflections on the special relationship between Judaism and Christianity?
Both of the events you mentioned in your question were watershed moments in the history of the development of Jewish-Christian relations, for which the Nostra Aetate was a blueprint. John Paul II ended a painful chapter in the history of Rome because dialogue and respect had been lacking in relations between Rome’s Jews and the city’s bishop, the Pope. Walking at a normal peace, it takes about twenty minutes to get from the Vatican to the Great Temple of Rome. And yet it took centuries before a Pope made ​​that journey. The embrace between John Paul II and Rabbi Elio Toaff at the start of the visit will remain imprinted in people’s minds as an sign of understanding and dialogue for Jews and Catholics and an example for all humanity. In the same way, Benedict XVI’s theological reflection on the special bond between Judaism and Christianity, repairs a historic rift, laying the foundations for closer relations and mutual recognition, in order to allow Jews and Christians to dig deeper into their origins and genuinely reinforce their identity, each doing Their bit, together, to improve relations.”
A new Vatican document published last month states that “the Catholic Church neither conducts nor supports any specific institutional mission work directed towards Jews”, because its relationshipwith them is different than with any other faith. What is your take on this?
Ever since the approval of the conciliar declaration Nostra Aetate, dignitaries of the Church on a number of occasions demonstrated that the Church would not be carrying out any evangelical action or mission with the Jewish people as it had done on a dramatic scale in the past. But the document “The Gifts and the Calling of God are Irrevocable” made ​​this clear officially. It was thus that a very painful chapter in Jewish-Christian relations was closed. Just a stone’s throw away from the square where Rome’s Jewish ghetto was - the square reminds its inhabitants that this is where the journey to the Nazi concentration camps began - there is a church with a frontispiece that quotes verse 65, 2 of the Book of Isaiah, “I have spread out My hands all day long to a rebellious people”. During the Middle Ages they would compulsively Jews gather in this church - I have been told this by experts on Jewish history in Rome - all of them ghetto inhabitants, to make them listen to the missionary preaching of Christian clerics. The Church’s latest document puts a definitive end to these stories that are part of a sad past.”
