Speak for your own apostate sect, buddy!
Francis blasphemes, says Catholic Church has been “Caught in Flagrant Adultery”
Today Jorge Bergoglio — the Jesuit apostate currently pretending to be the Pope of the Catholic Church — met with the clergy of Rome at the Archbasilica of St. John Lateran. As always, he had plenty to say.
The full text of his remarks has not yet been made available in English, but the Italian original is available here. [UPDATE 11-MAR-2019: Complete English translation now released.] A report on the meeting in English can be found at Vatican Insider, but the entire talk is not of interest. Although he said a few things that should raise some eyebrows, the most outrageous part is the following.
Touching on the sex abuse and cover-up scandals that have been rocking his pseudo-Catholic establishment, “Pope” Francis opined:
…let us not be discouraged, the Lord is purifying His Bride, He is converting us all to Himself, He is putting us to the test for we to [sic] understand that without Him we are dust, He is saving us from hypocrisy, from the spirituality of appearances. He is blowing his Spirit to restore beauty to his Bride, surprised in flagrant adultery.
(Antipope Francis, quoted in Salvatore Cernuzio, “The Pope to the priests of Rome: I carry the pain of the scandals all over the newspapers of the world”, Vatican Insider, Mar. 7, 2019; underlining added.)
The original Italian of the underlined portion reads: “Egli sta soffiando il suo Spirito per ridare bellezza alla sua Sposa, sorpresa in flagrante adulterio.” An alternate translation would be: “He is breathing His Spirit to restore beauty to His Bride, who has been caught in the very act of adultery”.
What incredible blasphemy! What damnable heresy!
Assuming for a minute that the apostate Modernist pseudo-church Francis heads were the Catholic Church, which is the true Bride of Christ, the crimes and moral failings of some of her clergy would not allow him in the least to accuse the Church of adultery:
Certainly the loving Mother is spotless in the Sacraments, by which she gives birth to and nourishes her children; in the faith which she has always preserved inviolate; in her sacred laws imposed on all; in the evangelical counsels which she recommends; in those heavenly gifts and extraordinary graces through which, with inexhaustible fecundity, she generates hosts of martyrs, virgins and confessors. But it cannot be laid to her charge if some members fall, weak or wounded. In their name she prays to God daily: “Forgive us our trespasses”; and with the brave heart of a mother she applies herself at once to the work of nursing them back to spiritual health.
(Pope Pius XII, Encyclical Mystici Corporis, n. 66; underlining added.)
Likewise, Pope Pius XI had taught:
During the lapse of centuries, the mystical Spouse of Christ has never been contaminated, nor can she ever in the future be contaminated, as Cyprian bears witness: “The Bride of Christ cannot be made false to her Spouse: she is incorrupt and modest. She knows but one dwelling, she guards the sanctity of the nuptial chamber chastely and modestly.”
(Pope Pius XI, Encyclical Mortalium Animos, n. 10)
Pius XI had also made clear that “[n]ot least among the blessings which have resulted from the public and legitimate honor paid to the Blessed Virgin and the saints is the perfect and perpetual immunity of the Church from error and heresy” (Encyclical Quas Primas, n. 22). And Pope St. Pius X, too, had referred to the Church’s “ties [as being] indissoluble with her heavenly Spouse” (Encyclical Iucunda Sane, n. 8).
Immediately after uttering his blasphemy, Francis recommended to his Novus Ordo priests that they read Chapter 16 of the book of Ezechiel, which speaks of the unfaithfulness of Israel to the Old Covenant and how God will restore them in the New Covenant. Bergoglio adds: “This is the history of the Church” (“Questa la storia della Chiesa”). Wrong! It is the history of adulterous (apostate) Israel, which God replaced with the Catholic Church, who is the fulfillment of the Old Covenant, the ever-faithful Bride of Christ!
Francis knows exactly what he is saying. In the very beginning of his talk, he quoted from Eph 5:27: “That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy, and without blemish.” In accordance with the despotic principle of never letting a good crisis go to waste, the papal impostor from Buenos Aires is using his own sect’s epidemic of clerical sexual immorality to further smite, dishonor, and make people loathe the Catholic Church.
One thing is curious. Notice how quickly Francis remembered such an old-fashioned term as “adultery”, simply because it worked to his advantage. Keep in mind that in his heretical and blasphemous exhortation Amoris Laetitia, which deals at length with matters of the family and sexual morality, the word “adultery” is almost entirely absent — it is used only twice, both times in reference to the Scripture passage about the “woman caught in adultery” (see Jn 8:1-11).
Francis’ latest blasphemy is reminiscent of what he said during a General Audience on Sep. 11, 2013, when he pointed out that the Church is just like the Virgin Mary and that what can be said of the Church can be said of the Blessed Mother and vice versa — and then added that the Church has “defects”. The conclusion was obvious.
So now he accuses the Catholic Church — remember, he insists that his apostate Modernist sect is the Catholic Church, and most people in the world agree with him — of being unfaithful to her Divine Spouse. This is both a heresy and a blasphemy. And he does so because so many of his pseudo-clerics can’t keep their hands off seminarians or altar boys; and now he himself is suspected of having covered up for and promoted a sex abuser “bishop” from Argentina.
The true Catholic Church can neither be stained nor become unfaithful to her Lord. On the other hand, the Vatican II Church has most definitely been committing adultery, fornicating with the blasphemies, heresies, and errors of the world, plunging souls into apostasy, blasphemy, all kinds of immorality, and impiety. Francis himself has proven himself to be its most prolific and most industrious captain.
