“Until now, the two ordinary ways to being declared a saint were martyrdom for Christ and the practice of “heroic virtue.” A third, exceptional way also existed: that of “ancient veneration” of a person as a saint. According to Catholic teaching, every person who goes to heaven is a saint, but a small percentage of these are officially recognized as saints and put forward as examples and models of a closer following of Christ. The new decision follows on a process carried out by the Vatican Congregation for the Causes of Saints, which asked “whether those servants of God are not worthy of beatification who, inspired by the example of Christ, freely and deliberately offered and sacrificed their lives for their brothers and sisters in a supreme act of charity. While this new “fourth way” of the offering of one’s life closely resembles both the path of martyrdom and that of heroic virtue in certain respects, it has been put forward to underscore a specific form of heroic Christian witness. ” –Source
As the article eludes to; according to the Pope there are now 4 pathways to becoming a saint according to Roman dogma. And I say according to Roman dogma because anyone with a Bible can see this is not how the Lord defines a saint. As many of you know, I used to be Roman Catholic 30+ years ago and so I know exactly what they teach here when it comes to becoming a saint in Roman Catholicism. But to make a long story short, I will quote from the Vatican approved website known as the Catholic Education Resource Center, which states, “Today the process proceeds as follows: When a person dies who has “fame of sanctity” or “fame of martyrdom,” the Bishop of the Diocese usually initiates the investigation. One element is whether any special favor or miracle has been granted through this candidate saint’s intercession.” Continue reading
“Pope Francis has appointed 45 new ordinary members of the Pontifical Academy for Life, according to a statement on the Vatican website. They include Nigel Biggar, who has said that he thinks the limit for legal abortion should be 18 weeks. In a dialogue with fellow philosopher Peter Singer in 2011, reported by Standpoint magazine, Biggar said: “I would be inclined to draw the line for abortion at 18 weeks after conception, which is roughly about the earliest time when there is some evidence of brain activity, and therefore of consciousness. In terms of maintaining a strong social commitment to preserving human life in hindered forms, and in terms of not becoming too casual about killing human life, we need to draw the line much more conservatively.” –Source
If he was serious about “not becoming too casual about killing human life” he would draw the line at conception and declare that is when God is involved. (See Isaiah 48:8; Jeremiah 1:5 & Luke 2:12) As per the written Word that says He names us in the womb and so any Bible believer would never even consider abortion because it is murder. But Nigel Biggar is Roman Catholic and so truth is not a prerequisite to any dogma of Rome. Hence the reason they hate Sola Scriptura with such a passion. This is also why the Roman Catholic Vatican approves and even funds abortion clinics in their hospitals. That fact alone shows it’s not about the so called Vatican dogma that abortion is wrong. (which it is) Rome only uses the abortion card when it is politically feasible for them to do so; and it has served them well over the years when making sure certain unjust laws get passed as well as good laws get tabled. But let me get this straight, and I hope some Catholics ask similar questions. Continue reading
As I have been wondering for months since Trump’s daughter Ivanka made climate change her focus in her father’s White House; when will Trump finally cave on this long prophesied agenda of the Pope regarding climate change? Well, this meeting is not only the focus of a new video I’m working on, (from last Friday’s blog entry) it’s also what all students of prophecy have been watching for all along because we know prophecy will be fulfilled no matter how much Trump is against it. And as expected, Trump had his meeting with the Pope, and as was also expected they had their meeting behind closed doors so as to keep the people they promised transparency with are kept in the dark, because as also prophesied their deeds are from the darkened realm of Satan. And if their constituents knew they would boldly revolt. Continue reading
The world’s most powerful president and religion’s most visible voice with meet for the first time Wednesday — but not before President Trump has to cross through the Vatican wall that divided the two men, metaphorically, last year.
Long a symbol of the Vatican’s majesty, the wall also became for Mr. Trump evidence of Pope Francis’s hypocrisy, after the pontiff last year, responding to a reporter’s question about the U.S.-Mexico border, said wall-builders are “not Christian.”
Mr. Trump’s famous response was that the pope himself lived behind “an awfully big wall.” Continue reading
Following his trip to Egypt last month, Pope Francis sent a message Wednesday to the head of the Coptic Orthodox Church, Tawadros II, expressing his hope that their Churches will continue to work toward unity in the sacraments.
“Along this path we are sustained by the powerful intercession and example of the martyrs. May we continue to advance together on our journey towards the same Eucharistic table, and grow in love and reconciliation,” Pope Francis said in his letter to the Coptic Orthodox Patriarch May 10.
“I take this opportunity to offer my prayerful best wishes for your peace and health, as well as my joy and gratitude for the spiritual bonds uniting the See of Peter and the See of Mark.” Continue reading
“The new superior of the worldwide Jesuit religious order said recently that, as Jesus Christ’s words about marriage were never recorded, there is no basis for a “black and white” church doctrine centering on lifelong marriage between one man and one woman. In a recent interview with Vatican journalist Giuseppe Rusconi of the Italian Catholic blog Rossoporpora, Father Arturo Sosa Abascal states that Jesus’s words about marriage must be “contextualized” and “discerned.” “Human reality is much more nuanced” and “never black and white,” said Abascal, who was elected superior of the Society of Jesus in October.” –Source
As is obvious, birds of a feather certainly do flock together. Jesuit Pope Francis and this so called Jesuit “Superior” are on the same page when it comes to lying about Jesus and His clear and undisputed (among true Christians) written will when it comes to marriage. I am not going to get in a long drawn out Bible study confirming what the Lord revealed to David and his son Salomon when it came to polygamy and how it destroys both the man and the society he hails from, and I see no need to repeat what I said in my Polygamy videos, but it is as I have said for quite some time now. The prelates of Rome, being 98% homosexual, needed to first normalize homosexuality and then polygamy, bestiality and even necromancy if they ever had the chance to normalize their now globally known favored pastime of child molestation.

“Despite two separate ISIS bombing attacks on Christian churches in Egypt Sunday, the Vatican has confirmed that Pope Francis is moving forward with his plan to visit Cairo just three weeks from now. On Monday, Archbishop Angelo Becciu, the number two of the Vatican Secretariat of State, confirmed that the Pope would still be traveling as planned to Egypt April 28-29, just as Egypt’s Cabinet announced a three-month state of emergency. “There is no doubt that the Holy Father will stick to his plan,” Becciu told the Italian daily, Corriere della Sera. “What happened causes distress and great suffering, but it cannot prevent the Pope from carrying out his mission of peace.” –Source
First and foremost his “mission of peace” has absolutely nothing to do with actual peace. In fact, when speaking of the beast in Rome it states clearly in Daniel 8:25, “And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.” Every Pope of the Roman Catholic church, and especially a Jesuit Pope who took an oath to kill innocent people in the most violent manner imaginable simply because they’re not “Catholic” are in fact, hands down the most evil men ever to breathe air on planet earth with one exception; that being of course Judas Iscariot who betrayed our Lord.

“Pope Francis has warned in an interview with a German newspaper of the dangers of rising populism in western democracies. The pope told Die Zeit on Thursday “populism is evil and ends badly as the past century showed.” He also said he rejects any kind of cult around the papacy and that he’s a normal believer just like everyone else.” –Source
First off this Jesuit Pope aka prophesied man of sin stated that “populism is evil.” And do you know why he says that? You may be a bit shocked in this because he is banking on the “dumbing down” of the masses to slip this one by as well as having hope the elite that do understand will circle the wagons for him. But for some of you that may not know what that word “populism” means, I will define it for you. Continue reading
The Catholic Diocese of Hallam and the Anglican Diocese of Sheffield came together to host an ecumenical Study Day on Pope Francis’ encyclical on Saturday, 25th February. A packed room at Sheffield’s Quaker Meeting House came away enthused and inspired to foster care for creation in their home parishes. “The suggestion to explore Laudato Si’ together came from the Anglican diocese”, explained Greg Ryan, adult formation advisor for Hallam. “Not only have we been studying together, but we’ve learned from each other, often in practical ways. It’s been an experience of ‘receptive ecumenism”’. Continue reading
The Vatican announced Wednesday that it will crack down on unauthorized use of the Papal crest and images.
The move comes amid obvious concern from Vatican officials about the growing criticism of Pope Francis.
For example, a recent attempt to criticize the Pope – in traditional Roman sarcastic manner – with posters was condemned by a senior Vatican cardinal as a “work of the devil.”
A press statement published by the Vatican Wednesday announced that the Secretariat of State will widen its surveillance over the Papal insignia and put an end to any possible “illegal” uses of the crest. Continue reading
