One hopes, or at least we at Call Me Jorge... hope that Francis gives up all forms of public speaking for Lent — homilies, interviews, off the cuff remarks, speeches, addresses, etc... This will likely stay simply a wish. Just before Lent began, Francis found time to fit in one more interview which was not about the Faith, nor about Lent, or Our Lord’s Passion but about his ‘humble’ self, the homeless, and the plight of the Moslem invaders living in Europe. The interview was conducted on 16 February 2017 in the Vatican by Stefano Lampertico the director of Scarp de’ tenis (Tennis Shoes), the magazine which some homeless sell in Milan, Italy. Scarp de’ tenis is a monthly magazine conceived of and supported by Caritas Ambrosiana and Caritas Italiana in the diocese of Milan.

(Circa 2012) Hassad a homeless Moroccan and Robert a gypsy from Romania/Hungary sell Scarp de’ Tenis in Milan, Italy. This is back when illegal immigrants had jobs in Italy and before the State put them on the dole. Hopefully by now Hassad and Robert have assimilated to life in Italy or better yet, returned home.
Francis with Stefano Lampertico and Antonio Lampertico Mininni
in Casa Santa Marta being interviewed for Scarp de’ tenis.
The interview Francis gave was titled “Mettiamoci Nelle Scarpe Degli Altri” (Let’s place ourselves in the shoes of others). It consists of ten questions posed to Francis and his answers. It is filled with the usual gospel according to Francis the ‘humble’ which consists of a claptrap of naturalistic and modernist garbage. Among the lowlights:
- Francis feels pride in the way the Novus Ordo churches and schools have opened their doors to the homeless Moslem invaders and this is a step in accompanying them in their integration to Europe,
- Francis brings up one of his favorite Talmudic concepts ‘the other’ but with a twist connecting it to being in ‘the other’s’ shoes,
- When giving alms to the poor you need to touch their hands and look them in the eye,
- The Moslem invaders have the right to immigrate to our countries because we have exploited their homelands and haven’t built up enough employment opportunities for them in their native countries,
- Sweden is a positive example of integrating Moslem invaders into a country,
- Among Francis’ answers one gets the sense that he is trying to recreate in the world the native Argentina of past, where he grew up around immigrants or the children of immigrants which shaped his faith experience profoundly,
- What Francis misses most about Argentina is going to the slums,
- It’s a quirk of fate that Francis was even born as his parents were to be on a ship which sank,
- The poor can change the world, as they are more raw and honest as well as show more solidarity than the rest of the human race,
- The miraculous story of the homeless Polish priest, Caritas, and Saint John Paul II,
- Children know better than their parents do about feeding the homeless, and
- Francis expects to see many people during his upcoming trip to Milan.
We reiterate what we wrote above, Francis doesn’t mention saving souls or anything really pertaining to the spiritual element of Christianity. He only touches corporal works of mercy and he doesn’t do a good job of even covering that properly from a Catholic perspective. Examining one of Francis’ answers we see how idiotic it is. Francis tells a story of children who befriend homeless people and bring them into the home to feed them when their parents are out. The sense one gets when reading Francis’ answer is that these children are wiser than their parents. This is a dangerous answer which Francis gives for several reasons. Who are these homeless? Criminals? People who should be in mental institutions? Child rapists? Drug addicts? Moslem invaders? People down on their luck? The answer to this is important but not to Francis. Don’t parents have an obligation to protect and raise their children, often making decisions for them which are for their good even though they may not like them? Instead, Francis sells his modernist program of trash and destruction on emotion. The interview is filled with all sorts of prescriptions which only make one more sick and the disease worse than before. How much longer until everyone sees that Francis is the emperor with no clothes?
The last time Scarp de’ tenis printed an interview with Francis it was conducted by the Dutch homeless newspaper, Straatnieuws. and published in several other magazines also sold by the homeless. Francis said that he wanted “a world without poor” and his childhood dream was to become, “a butcher”. Christ told us “the poor you have always with you” (Matthew 26,11) and Francis is certainly making mincemeat out of Catholic Tradition.
Pope Francis just gave an interview to the German paper "Die Zeit" in which he mentioned the possibility of ordaining to the priesthood "tested" married men...but said also that celibacy would not be scrapped for the newly ordained.ReplyDelete
