Francis publishes Book on “Our Mother Earth”
While there is a perpetual debate raging on the precise identity of the bizarre carved image that was worshipped in the Vatican Gardens under Francis’ nose on Oct. 4 and keeps appearing at outrageous events (caution!) connected with the Amazon Synod in Rome, the Vatican has announced the release of a new book by their Dear Leader, the Jesuit apostate Jorge Bergoglio, also known by his stage name, “Pope Francis.”
The title of the book is: Our Mother Earth: A Christian Approach to the Environmental Challenge (original: Nostra Madre Terra: Una Lettura Cristiana della Sfide dell’Ambiente). The publisher is the Vatican publishing house Libreria Editrice Vaticana. The release date is Oct. 24, 2019, three days before the close of the scandalous synod. The book includes a prologue written by the Eastern Orthodox Patriarch Bartholomew I.
Our latest podcast has a segment on this new publication:
According to Vaticanist Giuseppe Nardi, Our Mother Earth consists of 30 short meditations on the encyclical Laudato Si’, Francis’ environmentalist manifesto published in 2015. The Novus Ordo news agency Zenit says “the work is a compilation of the addresses, messages and homilies in which Pope Francis refers to the defense of the environment and appeals for the promotion of a worthy life for all peoples.” The article continues:
Among all the included documents, is an unpublished text of the Holy Father, in which he requests that we ask forgiveness for all the harm caused to our planet.
…the Holy Father says that without people’s true repentance about their lifestyle, the fight for the protection of the environment will be futile. “I sincerely hope for growth in awareness and true repentance on the part of us all, men and women of the 21st century, believers or not, and on the part of our societies, for allowing ourselves to be carried away by logics that divide, create hunger, isolate and condemn. It would be good to ask the poor [and] the excluded for forgiveness. Then we could repent sincerely, including for the harm done to the earth, the sea, the air, the animals . . . “
The Pontiff also points out the need to ask for forgiveness and to grant pardon, “actions that are only possible in the Holy Spirit, because He is the architect of communion, which opens the closures of individuals. And much love is needed to put aside one’s pride, to realize that one was mistaken and to have the hope that new paths are really possible.”
Repentance, indicates the Bishop of Rome, “is a grace to be humbly implored from the Lord Jesus Christ, so that our generation will be remembered in history not for its errors, but for [its] humility and wisdom to have been able to change direction.”
The Pope also points out that at present there is the awareness that phenomena, such as contamination, climate change, desertification, environmental migration, unsustainable consumption of the planet’s resources, acidification of the oceans and the decrease in biodiversity, “are inseparable aspects of social inequity.” …

Instead of calling the world to conversion to Jesus Christ and His holy Catholic Church — which is what a true Pope would do — Francis proselytizes everyone regarding the environment and all sorts of causes that may have merit in themselves but that have nothing to do with saving souls. In fact, one can say that Francis busies himself with just about anything that is not part of his job description — assuming he were what he claims to be.
Bergoglio uses religious terms such as “repentance” and “forgiveness” for non-religious matters. Here we are not talking about specific individuals who have to truly repent and ask God for forgiveness for poisoning a river, for example, or for destroying farmers’ livestock. That would indeed be a matter for the confessional — which would require conversion to Jesus Christ and His religion first, by the way — but this is not what Francis is talking about. He is talking about unspecified people collectively — all “men and women of the 21st century” except for “the poor and the excluded” — that are supposedly guilty of “logics that divide, create hunger, isolate and condemn” — whatever that is supposed to mean.
True, he does mention our Blessed Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, but only as a prop or gimmick to get his point heard. He is clearly not addressing a believing or unbelieving people to ask them to convert to a life of holiness, enabled by sanctifying grace in Faith, hope, and charity. Rather, his message is one of environmentalism, for “believers or not”. His concern is an earthly one, not a supernatural one; sanctifying grace is not part of it at all. We are witnessing the next step in the Bergoglian “gospel of man.”
It is a new eco-religion that is being set up in Vatican City before our very eyes, under the pretext of caring for God’s creation (look, God is mentioned!). “Ecological sins” are replacing true sins against Faith and morals, which, at least since Francis’ Amoris Laetitia, are no longer of any significance since God Himself, according to the blasphemous document, may desire us to commit them (see n. 303). In this new eco-religion, proselytism is suddenly allowed, probably obligatory. Dissent from this new creed is not only not “necessary” but greatly frowned upon.
Gaia, aka “Mother Earth”, is excited – Francis wrote a book on her!
For those wishing they could return to the “good old days” of John Paul II so as to escape all this neo-paganism, let’s remember that he laid the groundwork for all this garbage:
The following words of the Apostle and Evangelist St. John seem applicable here:
And every spirit that dissolveth Jesus, is not of God: and this is Antichrist, of whom you have heard that he cometh, and he is now already in the world. You are of God, little children, and have overcome him. Because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. They are of the world: therefore of the world they speak, and the world heareth them.
(1 John 4:3-5)
Rejoice, everyone, for we are witnessing the fulfillment of Catholic prophecy, confirming us in “the faith once delivered to the saints” (Jude 3).
One of those prophecies is this one: “But the day of the Lord shall come as a thief, in which the heavens shall pass away with great violence, and the elements shall be melted with heat, and the earth and the works which are in it, shall be burnt up” (2 Pet 3:10).
That’s bad news for Francis’ mother.
