bergoglio has a dream

bergoglio has a dream

In bergoglio's dream John Lennon appears to him and asks him, "do you remember what I said about Jesus back in 1966?"

"Christianity will go. It will vanish and shrink. I needn't argue about that; I'm right and I'll be proved right. We're more popular than Jesus now; I don't know which will go first—rock 'n' roll or Christianity. Jesus was all right but his disciples were thick and ordinary. It's them twisting it that ruins it for me."
-- John Lennon 1966

bergoglio answers, "oh yes, i remember very well. i was a huge fan and i was very influenced by your music. i especially admired your sleep-in for peace with Yoko Ono. i wish i could have joined the two of you in bed... "

"... ri-i-i-ght, yeah well. Anyway, it's your time now. You're the one that is "more popular than Jesus now" and its up to you to bear the torch of liberty. All our brothers in the masonic lodges worldwide are counting on you jorge..."

"... and i won't let them down. Don't you see how i have been tirelessly working to make this dream come true? i know i only have a few more years before i join you in heaven... "

"yeah, well... we'll talk about that when you get here.... the boss says he needs me... "

"oh the beatific vision... can you describe it... "

".... uh right, beatific.... uh not exactly... i'll explain it all when you get here.... "

And then the vision of Lennon disappeared, but bergoglio could hear the sound of one  of Lennon's  songs as clearly as if he was walking in a shopping mall in Buenos Aires and it was playing in the background over the loudspeakers ... it was the song that bergoglio had adopted as his theme song many years ago when he was still a simple priest ....

=====

Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky

Imagine all the people
Living for today
Aha-ahh

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too

Imagine all the people
Living life in peace
Yoohoo-ooh

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man

Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world
Yoohoo-ooh

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one

BROTHERHOOD BETWEEN CHRISTIANS AND MUSLIMS: KEY WORD OF THE MESSAGE FOR THE END OF RAMADAN

http://visnews-en.blogspot.com/2014/07/brotherhood-between-christians-and.html

Vatican City, 18 July 2014 (VIS) – “Towards a genuine fraternity between Christians and Muslims” is the title of the message sent by the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue to mark the end of Ramadan ('Id al-Fitr 1435/2014 A.D.). The document is signed by Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran and Fr. Miguel Angel Ayuso Guixot M.C.C.J., respectively president and secretary of the dicastery.
-
“Last year, the first year of his ministry, Pope Francis personally signed the Message addressed to you on the occasion of ‘Id al-Fitr. On another occasion, he also called you 'our brothers and sisters' (Angelus, 11 August 2013). We all can recognize the full significance of these words. In fact, Christians and Muslims are brothers and sisters in the one human family, created by the One God”.

************

REALITY CHECK!!!

************

Contacted by AsiaNews at the See of the Chaldean Patriarchate in Baghdad, Mar Sako bitterly said that no form of dialogue is possible with the Islamists, who keep repeating, "between us there is but the sword."

http://www.asianews.it/news-en/Baghdad-patriarch:-as-the-time-for-dialogue-is-no-more,-Christians-flee-Mosul-31662.html

Baghdad (AsiaNews) - "The situation in Mosul is tragic," said Mar Raphael I Louis Sako, Patriarch of the Chaldean Church, as he spoke to AsiaNews about what is happening in Mosul, Iraq's second largest city.
-
His Beatitude said that yesterday, the "militia of the so-called Islamic caliphate" issued a notice (pictured), distributed across the city, declaring, "Christians either convert to Islam or pay the [poll] tax" (the Jizya). Alternatively, he noted, they "can only leave the city," leaving behind everything they own, which the Islamists are seizing.
-
When Mosul fell to Islamist militias, at least 500 thousand people, Christians and Muslims, fled the city, creating a serious humanitarian, economic and political crisis.
-
The city is now under the control of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, a Sunni jihadist group close to al-Qaeda), operating as the militia of the Islamic caliphate.

************

It's true. You can't make this stuff up.
-
Are the members of the "Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue" getting high on illegal substances before coming up with these statements? One would almost hope so. At least that would provide some sort of explanation.
-
I suggest that there next meeting should take place in Mosul where they can "dialogue" with the Islamists swords. That should be a short meeting.
-
Perhaps they can begin the "dialogue" by pointing out that we are "brothers and sisters" and then see what direction that "HEADS". Or they could quickly "CUT" to the chase and say how we both worship "the One God". Or they could "OFF"-er to personally deliver a message of "brotherhood" from bergoglio.
-
Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran seems to think this is quite funny becaues I see him rolling around on the floor, but I'm "DEAD" serious. Oh dear....

Does bergoglio believe in the Resurrection?

Does bergoglio believe in the Resurrection?

bergoglio said on his trip to Korea, "Christians don’t come as conquerors."

LINK

And as bad as the English translation sounds, the Spanish translation sounds even worse and is even more loaded with implications. "estos cristianos no vienen como conquistadores."

LINK

This comes following a statement in the same speech where bergoglio says, "I don’t proselytize".... "no hago proselitismo".

When one hears these words coming from the lips of the successor of Peter one cannot help but think of the concluding lines of the Gospel according to St. Matthew in which Jesus Christ Our Lord commands:

LINK

"Going therefore, teach ye all nations; baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and behold I am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world."

Whose command are you going to follow? Christ's or bergoglio's? God or man?

=====

The Gospel according to St. Matthew ends rather abruptly. Just before this last commandment from Our Lord, St. Matthew recounts the events of the Resurrection.

The Roman guards who witnessed an angel roll back the stone were struck with terror. Later they reported these events to the chief jewish priests who offered them a bribe of a large sum of money. And said to them, "Say you, His disciples came by night, and stole him away when we were asleep."

If there is no Resurrection as the chief jewish priests would have us believe then there is no commandment to "teach ye all nations; baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost."

Is this what bergoglio is really saying?

And what does St. Matthew tell us the guards did? Did they accept the bribe? Did they do as the chief jewish priests requested?

The Gospel according to St. Matthew says:

"So they taking the money, did as they were taught: and this word was spread abroad among the Jews even unto this day."

The Word of God. Praise to You, Lord Jesus Christ.

They accepted the bribe ".... and this word was spread abroad ...."

"Christians don’t come as conquerors" .... "estos cristianos no vienen como conquistadores."

"I don’t proselytize".... "no hago proselitismo".

They accepted the bribe ".... and this word was spread abroad ...."

Once again bergoglio sows  confusion among the Catholic faithful worldwide....

bergoglio's sado-masochistic relationship with China

bergoglio's sado-masochistic relationship with China

bergoglio swoons.... China hits him with a broom

"What is clear for now is that Beijing, which considers itself a modern state, could not refuse its permission for the papal flight to cross the skies of China, but on the ground the State wants to continue to monitor the Catholics. As well as all information: Xinhua has not published a single news story on the Pope in Korea, instead it has given wide coverage to a Korean actress who is participating in a charity dinner "

=====

Mainstream press reports tell us...

LINK

"China’s Foreign Ministry has reacted positively to the pope’s telegrams and already indicated it wants to promote dialogue with the Holy See after decades of frosty relations."

=====

For the reality on the ground that they don't tell us see this report from AsiaNews, a Catholic news agency focused on Asia....

LINK

Seoul (AsiaNews) - The Beijing government has banned about 80 young people from taking part in the Asian Youth Day being held in Daejeon, despite the enthusiasm aroused by the permission given to the papal flight to fly over Chinese airspace.

According to AsiaNews sources, about 40 of those young people are seminarians from Beijing, who in July 2014 refused to attend the year end Mass celebrated by some illicit bishops. According to the spokesman of the organizing committee of the Pope's visit to Korea, Heo Young-yeop, China's decision arose from "problematic internal situations". Another source speaks of possible arrests.

In addition, the Communist government has decided to recall some Chinese priests residing in Korea before the arrival of Pope Francis on the Korean peninsula. Local sources confirmed this to AsiaNews: "The priests were phoned by officials from the Religious Affairs Bureau, which threatened them with 'problems' if they did not immediately return home".

Threats of "problems" on returning home are a common means of controlling priests and religious overseas Chinese. In addition to the withdrawal of passports, visas and the cancellation of any generic bureaucratic documents, the executive and especially the Religious Affairs Bureau have often threatened the families of Catholics abroad.

Although there are no official figures, the Chinese community in South Korea has hundreds of thousands of people. Of these, at least 50 thousand are Catholic (baptized or catechumens).  This community, mostly based in Seoul and Incheon, are cared for mainly by priests of their own nationality. Similarly, there are many Korean priests who serve in China, especially the Korean community residing there.

To avoid embarrassing situations, Beijing has decided to recall these people and to impose conditions to prevent their contact with Francis.

Yesterday at the inaugural Mass of the Asian Youth Day in Daejeon Chinese flags were not visible, even though a delegation of young people from mainland China was expected to take part. However, again AsiaNews sources claim a group of about 100 young people managed to arrive on the Korean Peninsula: these are mostly young people from the capital and the province of Hebei.

There will be time enough to evaluate these signals that China is sending to the Vatican. What is clear for now is that Beijing, which considers itself a modern state, could not refuse its permission for the papal flight to cross the skies of China, but on the ground the State wants to continue to monitor the Catholics. As well as all information: Xinhua has not published a single news story on the Pope in Korea, instead it has given wide coverage to a Korean actress who is participating in a charity dinner.

Searching for Pope St. Pius X at the Vatican

Searching for Pope St. Pius X at the Vatican

I searched for any mention of Pope St. Pius X over the past week on the Vatican website vatican.va. Here are the results:

"Your search - site:vatican.va pius x - did not match any documents."

=============

Then I searched for any mention of Pope Francis over the past week on the Vatican website. Below are the results.

=============

It's all about bergoglio.

Not a word mentioned about the great Pope St. Pius X on the 100th anniversary of his death. Nor for the full week preceding it.

Now do you see? The modernists have taken over the Vatican. And they are determined to erase the glorious pre-Vatican II history of the Church.

A Pope... a great Saint... is totally ignored by the conciliar church on the 100th anniversary of his death.

Kyrie eleison.

We are Christians

We are Christians

We are not converted jews. We are Christians.

We are something entirely new created at the moment that Christ died on the Cross, which sealed the New Covenant.

Which abolished the old covenant. Which marked the beginning of a new Church with a new Law and new Commandments.

Which draws all men to Christ and through Christ's sacrifice to God.

We are washed in the blood of the lamb.

+ + +

Now the way to reach Christ is not hard to find: it is the Church. Rightly does Chrysostom inculcate: "The Church is thy hope, the Church is thy salvation, the Church is thy refuge." (Hom. de capto Euthropio, n. 6.)

It was for this that Christ founded it, gaining it at the price of His blood, and made it the depositary of His doctrine and His laws, bestowing upon it at the same time an inexhaustible treasury of graces for the sanctification and salvation of men.
You see, then, Venerable Brethren, the duty that has been imposed alike upon Us and upon you of bringing back to the discipline of the Church human society, now estranged from the wisdom of Christ; the Church will then subject it to Christ, and Christ to God.

If We, through the goodness of God Himself, bring this task to a happy issue, We shall be rejoiced to see evil giving place to good, and hear, for our gladness, " a loud voice from heaven saying: Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God and the power of his Christ." (Apoc. xii., 10.)

Pope St. Pius X
E Supremi Apostolatus, Oct. 4, 1903

bergoglio puts on sad clown face at Korean abortion cemetery

bergoglio puts on sad clown face at Korean abortion cemetery

“We cannot insist only on issues related to abortion, gay marriage and the use of contraceptive methods. This is not possible. I have not spoken much about these things, and I was reprimanded for that.”

I'm sure you remember the above infamous quote on abortion from bergoglio which came very early in his papacy. If you don't remember don't worry because the mainstream press will remind you at every occasion. They got their one papal quote on abortion and from now on until bergoglio joins ratzinger in retirement anything else bergoglio says or does regarding abortion is just neatly ignored. But this quote will be repeated endlessly.

Pro-life Catholics were horrified by this statement. Every time they turn around the pro-abortion forces throw this quote in their faces. For example there was this article at the time:

"Pope Francis: Church's 'obsession' with gays, abortion and contraception means it risks 'falling like a house of cards' "

LINK

=====

bergoglio's latest cheap publicity stunt

So when bergoglio stands in front of an abortion cemetery in Korea the Catholic media gets stirred up in a frenzy and says "see bergoglio really does care about abortion".

Meanwhile the mainstream press mostly ignores this latest publicity stunt because it doesn't fit their agenda.

When the mainstream press does cover it the article title looks something like this:

"Pope Francis makes strong, silent statement on abortion"

http://m.nydailynews.com/news/world/pope-francis-issues-strong-silent-statement-abortion-article-1.1905659

The same article reminds us in the first sentence:

"Pope Francis has generally avoided hot-button "culture war" issues like abortion, arguing that the church's doctrine on the sanctity of life is well-known and that he'd rather emphasize other aspects of church teaching."

.... just in case you forgot since the last time they reminded you....

=====

So lets think about this.... bergoglio stands there in front of an abortion cemetery while the Korean press cameras are clicking at a furious pace while putting on his sad clown face... you know the one.... and makes a statement saying.... NOTHING!

How are we to interpret his sad clown face? Is the pope a mime? Is Marcel Marceau now the pope?

Of course pro-life Catholics will see the picture and interpret it in a very sympathetic way and conclude that bergoglio is really very pro-life and anti-abortion.... but did he really say that?

How does the average liberal that is "pro-choice" interpret this.... ?

Well most of the "pro-choice" crowd thinks abortion is sad.... it's a slightly sad but necessary "choice".... is that what this picture of the pope is saying?

Maybe we should have a caption contest? Make a balloon and fill in what bergoglio  is thinking.

Of course if bergoglio would have actually made a statement.... then we wouldn't have to guess what he was thinking behind his sad clown face...

=====

And what about contraception? What did sad clown face bergoglio say about contraception during his Korean stop on his endless world rock tour?

A quick Google search reveals that he said... NOTHING! Not a thing!

Oh, really? Isn't that odd? Not even a photo-op in front of a pile of discarded condoms making a sad clown face?

=====

So let's think about that....

Korea is facing a crisis because of a policy that was pushed on it by the pro-abortion "family planning" forces to reduce its "over-population". The birth rate is low and the population is aging....

Conclusion.... it's pretty safe politically in Korea to make an anti-abortion statement.... especially a sad clown face....

What about contraception? How would an anti-contraception statement be received politically in Korea?

My guess is that Koreans would not be too happy about the pope "intruding into their bedrooms"....

Conclusion... bergoglio is only as pro-life as the average "pro-choice" liberal....

What lessons have we learned here?

- bergoglio is a media craving maniac
- bergoglio is only interested in pro-life issues when it suits his agenda
- bergoglio does not consistently present Catholic teaching to the faithful

.... but you already knew all that by this time. More of the same from bergoglio.... on to the synod on the family to further undermine Catholic doctrine....
