Another trip, another blasphemous logo…
Official Logo for Francis Visit to Egypt: Christian Cross put on a par with Mohammedan Crescent

Antipope Francis, a.k.a. “Pope Sheikh”, has scheduled another one of his infamous
apostate “apostolic” journeys abroad, this time to Egypt, from April 28-29. As for all other Beroglian trips outside Italy, this one too comes with its own official logo, which was just released by the “Catholic Church” in Egypt.
In the past, these logos have typically raised eyebrows, because they either looked effeminate, bizarre, or exaggerated the person of Francis to the point where in a number of cases the logo did not even include a cross or any reference to Jesus Christ (see, for example, the logo for the 2015 trip to the U.S. and the one for this year’s trips to Fatima or Colombia).
Well, for those who were worried that the new logo would once again be lacking a cross, we can give the all-clear: A cross is present this time, and even a very nice-looking one!
This does, of course, come at a very high price: The beautiful Christian cross is displayed only next to (and only after) the Muslim crescent! This visually puts the truth of Jesus Christ and His holy religion, on a par with the Satanic sect of the Mohammedans. In fact, one may argue that it actually subjects the Christian cross to the Muslim crescent inasmuch as the Mohammedan half-moon is placed before the cross and can even give the impression of “swallowing up”, Pacman-style, the cross that is placed after it.
Vatican Radio has posted the following as the official explanation of the emblem for Francis’ trip to Egypt:
The logo for Pope Francis’ Apostolic Journey to Egypt, which takes place 28-29 April, has been released by the Egyptian Catholic Church.
The three main elements present in the logo are Egypt, Pope Francis, and Peace.
“Pope of Peace in Egypt of Peace” are the words in Arabic and English at the base of the logo.
Egypt is represented by the Nile River – a symbol of life – as well as by the pyramids and the Sphinx, which highlight the long history of civilization in this African country.
The Cross and Crescent Moon at the center of the logo represent the coexistence between the various components of the Egyptian people.
A white dove signifies peace, which is both the highest gift to which every human being can aspire and the greeting of monotheistic religions.
Finally, the dove precedes Pope Francis to announce his arrival as the Pope of Peace in a country of peace.

Ah, yes, Francis the great herald of peace! Thus he loves to imagine himself! The truth is, however, that since he doesn’t preach the peace of Christ, he will never be able to help bring about true and lasting peace; for “the peace of Christ … is the only true peace” (Pope Pius XI, Encyclical Ubi Arcano, n. 37); “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, do I give unto you” (Jn 14:27).
Francis is definitely Mr. Coexist. He doesn’t seek conversions to Christ, who alone is the Prince of Peace (cf. Is 9:6); he wants everybody to be happy in whatever religion they’re currently in. (Recently, he even referred to the attempt to convert as a “sin against ecumenism”.) Francis is a Naturalist — he believes that true peace comes about through dialogue and common prayer, by playing soccer, and heeding the sterling “coexist” example of Plim-Plim. The truth, however, is that our fallen human condition (rooted in original sin) and its consequences can only be overcome through the supernatural gift of sanctifying grace, which Jesus Christ merited for us and offers to us primarily through the sacraments:
[W]e said [before], that as long as individuals and states refused to submit to the rule of our Savior, there would be no really hopeful prospect of a lasting peace among nations. Men must look for the peace of Christ in the Kingdom of Christ….
(Pope Pius XI, Encyclical Quas Primas, n. 1)
Hence the lamentations of the prophet Jeremias are applicable here: “And they healed the breach of the daughter of my people disgracefully, saying: Peace, peace: and there was no peace” (Jer 6:14); “We looked for peace and no good came: for a time of healing, and behold fear” (Jer 8:15).
There is another curiosity about this: The “Catholic Church” in Egypt has apparently released two versions of the same logo with just a slight difference between the two. You can view one version here and another version here. The difference is in the most sensitive part of the image, of course: the cross and the crescent. One image shows them both on the same level, the other shows the cross visibly higher but, “in exchange for that”, the position of the crescent has been adjusted such that it seems to more easily encircle the cross. Take a look:
For an alternate take on the symbolism contained in this logo, have a look here.
No matter what the meaning behind this blasphemous emblem ultimately is, however, one thing is certain: Francis will not preach the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ to the Muslims of Egypt but confirm them in their infidelity, as he has done countless times in the past.
Our Lady of Victory, who is depicted in the Apocalypse as the “woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet” (Apoc 12:1), pray for us!
