Anything but Catholicism…
Francis commemorates ‘World Mountain Day’
The Jesuit apostate Jorge Bergoglio — “Pope” Francis — has found yet another thing for man to worry about that will distract him from the salvation of his soul. This time around, the false pope drew everyone’s attention to the importance of caring for mountains.
He did this as part of his Angelus remarks of Dec. 11, 2022. Before he got to that, however, he first once again blasphemed St. John the Baptist, as he had done numerous times in the past, accusing him of doubting that Jesus of Nazareth was truly the Messias.
In his idiotic reflection on the Gospel text for the day (Mt 11:2-11), the “Holy Father” argued as follows:
Indeed, John, hearing of Jesus’ works, is seized with doubt as to whether He is really the Messiah or not. In fact, he imagined a stern Messiah who would come and do justice with power by chastising sinners. Now, on the contrary, Jesus has words and gestures of compassion towards all; at the centre of His action is the mercy that forgives, whereby “the blind receive their sight and the lame walk, lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear, and the dead are raised up, and the poor have good news preached to them” (v. 6)
Not only is this wrong, it also doesn’t make any sense.
Notice that Francis alleges, first, that the Baptist was in doubt as to Jesus’ identity after “hearing of Jesus’ works”, and he identifies these works as the sick being healed, etc. Yet it is precisely these works of His that our Lord provides as proof of His Messianic dignity in answer to the (supposed) doubt. So if Francis’ interpretation were correct, the Baptist would be receiving as confirmation of Christ’s Messiahship the very works that made him doubt that Messiahship to begin with. What an idiotic line of argumentation!
In any case, we have addressed Bergoglio’s false thesis a few times already on this blog, so we will simply link to our prior posts:
- Francis claims St. John the Baptist doubted whether Christ was the True Messiah!
- Francis again accuses St. John the Baptist of “Doubting” the Messiah
- Did St. John the Baptist doubt that Jesus Christ was the Messiah? A Refutation of Mark Shea
Francis’ claim that the Baptist doubted Jesus’ being the Messiah is so off the wall that even the Where Peter Is web site disagrees with him: “Now, John already knew Jesus was the one – he knew he was the Messiah. But he wanted his followers to find out for themselves”, writes one Rev. Michael Najim there.
In any case, we can now move on to what the papal pretender said after his blasphemous treatment of St. John. Among other things, he remarked:
Today is World Mountain Day, which invites us to recognize the importance of this marvellous resource for the life of the planet and of humanity. The theme this year – “Women move mountains” – it is true, women move mountains! – reminds us of the role of women in caring for the environment and in safeguarding the traditions of mountain populations. From mountain people we learn the sense of community and of walking together.
This is “papal” commentary in A.D. 2022. You just can’t make this stuff up anymore.
“International Mountain Day 2022 is an opportunity to promote gender equality and therefore contribute to improving social justice, livelihoods and resilience”, Vatican News points out, quoting the official web site for the International Day.
But why are we surprised? In 2018, the Vatican Observatory hosted a conference on meteorite care (yes, you read that right). In Switzerland a number of Novus Ordos mourned the melting of a glacier in 2019. Just a week ago Vatican News reported on World Soil Day.
“Soil, water, mountains: everything is, as it were, a caress of God”, the saccharine poet Bergoglio wrote in his endless 2015 eco-encyclical Laudato Si’ (n. 84). While that is true, it is also true that we were not made for soil, water, or mountains. We were made for supernatural and eternal union with the Creator God, and all is lost if we do not attain it: “For what shall it profit a man, if he gain the whole world, and suffer the loss of his soul?” (Mk 8:36).
Interestingly enough, conversion to the true religion and a virtuous life with the help of divine grace is the one thing Francis never preaches to the world about — at best, only to those who already believe it — whereas he is insistent that everyone convert to clean energy, for example.
And now, we also had better care for mountains, because women and minorities and walking together.
There is nothing Catholic left in the Vatican.
