Did God Express His Indignation Over Pope Francis?

By David Martin

On June 23, the Feast of Corpus Christi, Pope Francis in his Sunday Mass sermon made what appeared to be an explicitly heretical statement. Speaking on the Holy Eucharist, he said:

"In the presence of the Eucharist, Jesus who becomes bread, this simple bread that contains the entire reality of the Church [Christ], let us learn to bless all that we have, to praise God, to bless and not curse all that has led us to this moment, and to speak words of encouragement to others."

The theological fact is that Jesus does not "become bread," but vice-versa. To say that Jesus becomes bread implies that Jesus changes and becomes something else, i.e. bread, so that only the substance of bread is present in the consecrated Host. This is what Protestants believe.

The truth is that during the Sacrifice of the Mass, the "simple bread" ceases and becomes Christ, so that only the substance of Christ is present. As such, the bread cannot “contain” Christ because the bread is not there to contain Him. This is why the physical properties of the consecrated Host are called the accidents or sacred species, because cessation of the bread occurs during the consecration of the Mass.

By saying that the bread "contains" Jesus, Francis is also promoting consubstantiation, the coexistence of two substances together, i.e. Jesus and bread, which is what Luther taught and which the Church condemns.

Francis says that “in the presence of the Eucharist,” we should “learn to bless all that we have.” Shall we bless our adultery too as proposed in Amoris Laetitia? What about learning to renounce all and to bless only God? Shouldn't the entire Church be on its knees before Christ?

Refuses to Kneel

As always, Francis did not kneel before the Blessed Sacrament at this year’s Corpus Christi procession, but stood between the kneeler and the altar, ignoring the kneeler. He refuses to bend a knee to his God, yet he otherwise loves kneeling, especially in front of migrants, prisoners, homosexuals or politicians.

Quake Jolts Rome   

Not surprisingly, an earthquake shook the city of Rome a few hours after Francis’ address. Italy’s Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV) put the preliminary magnitude at 3.7. The European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre put the magnitude slightly higher, at 3.9.

Was this a sign from God? Was The Lord expressing His indignation over Francis’ error?

This is a case of intentional heresy or loose talk. Take your pick.

Or is it a case of appalling command of the English language mixed with an age addled brain?

No, it's another fabricated piece of beat up by Martin.

Francis is slick. He speaks,teaches heresy, but for the average Catholic, who after 50 years of Vatican II indoctrination from k-12th grades thru college, most don't even know what he is talking about, so can't see the heresy in his statements. To them, and most Catholics, it sounds fine.
But, 60-70 years ago, and for hundreds of years before that, he would be labeled a total heretic and be under investigation from the CDF, or it's predecessor, the Sacred Congregation of the Holy Office (Inquisition).
60+ years ago, he would be blacklisted by that Congregation and banned from preaching, teaching, publishing. Of course, 500 years ago, he'd have been burnt at the stake for heresy....not by the Church per se, but turned over to the secular government for trial and execution.

He seems to have modelled his spiritual life on Francis of Assissi's type of spirituality. But, I don't think Francis the Saint would have gone this far. Maybe his spirituality is based on the 14th century radical Franciscans who followed Fr John Wyclif, who didn't believe in Transubstantiation, and we're the first protestants. Followed by Luther and all subsequent protestant denominations.

3.7 earthquake is nothing serious. Some 10 years ago, nyc had a 5.8 earthquake. Most did not even notice. I cetainly did not. It would be bad if it were 7 and up.

Sooner or later, in God's good time, He will answer.
Bergolio is no longer shocking. Catholics are shocking.
To imagine the day when all there heresies and outrages this man in the Chair of Peter has committed, to the point of advancing homosexuality, Holy Communion for adulterers, calling an abortionist "one of Italy's greats", refusing to kneel before the Holy Eucharist, now calling the holy species "bread", which is certainly Protestantism (he knows he is doing that), and now, the capper (this week) to point to the tribal Amazonians, the people with lip plates and polygamy, and say Catholicism needs to incorporate shamanism (witchcraft), and paganism.
And still Catholics don't react.
It is no longer Bergolio who is shocking, not even the corrupt Cardinals and bishops, it is Catholic laity, too ignorant or worldly to really care.

Italy is known for its volcanoes. If that is what caused the slight earthquake, then there might be more to come. If it is shifting techtonic plates, then this could be just the opening salvo. ---The release of details from the Third Secret involving the death of clergy and a "bishop in white" obviously left out some details such as what caused the event. All that is stated is that these individuals were walking up a mountain. Visions from above are noticeably "in code".

Michael Dowd said...

Kathleen 1031.

I agree. Catholics are shocking especially conservative Catholics who think Vatican II was just fine, the Novus Ordo Mass is fine, and Francis is a legit Pope.

I get into it with these folks on Crisis Magazine blog

Catholics ARE NOT required to believe in or acknowledge Fatima in any way whatsoever other than something out of the ordinary occurred.
This is stated in charity,not malice nor sarcasm.
No more Gnostic third secrets and unapproved Apocalyptic writings from a Nun circa 1924.
Tis logical to read
Deharbe Catechism,attend Holy Sacrifice of the Mass,confession,pray Holy Rosary and/or Divine Office & avoid apparitions that encourage Gnosticism.

A more charitable reading would be to suggest that they made the connection independently of each other?

Just a coincidence. A mild earthquake with no fatalities.

Not God's style at all.

I noticed that your blog is titled the Camp of the Saints

Did you take that title from Jean Raspail's book The Camp of the Saints (French: Le Camp des Saints)

If so did you give credit to Jean Raspail?

Did you know that The Camp of the Saints is a favorite of Nationalists?

That author took the phrase from Rev 20

Now if they had an earthquake in Italy and in Rome, where there was some damage but Casa Santa Marta was HEAVILLY damaged, I would say that would be more than just a coincidence. God's justice.
Not wishing for it, but wouldn't that be weird. I'll bet there's an earthquake of greater magnitude soon in Rome that happens, just as Bergoglio is giving his little heretical discourse celebrating Mass in Piazza San Pietro. A big one.

Maybe it'll happen during the Amazon Synod in Oct.

Very interesting if it did.

Another mean-spirited dimwit.

For the record, I learned of this yesterday upon reading Zenit and another website, both of which were in favor of Francis' Corpus Christi observance. I only extracted the facts, i.e. the date, occasion, what the pope said, etc., but the commentary is entirely my own. I had hoped that others would put something out on this, but could only find a brief clip today on Gloria TV. No plagiarism here, be assured.

To Anonymous who said... "That author took the phrase from Rev 20 Can’t rip off the bible. But you can rip off another writer on the internet and pretend it’s your work like this guy did."

And so did Jean Raspail use this Apoc. 20 back in 1973 for the title of his book.

See here:

Originally published in French as Le Camp Des Saints, 1973

And when the thousand years are ended, Satan will be released from his prison, and will go forth and deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, and will gather them together for the battle; the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. And they went up over the breadth of the earth and encompassed the camp of the saints, and the beloved city. — APOCALYPSE 20

My question is - are you influenced by Jean Raspail?

Did you get the idea for the title of your blog from reading Jean Raspail?

Or do you really believe that the battle of Gog, and Magog are right around the corner and you are part of the camp of the Saints?

Tancred said...

I like Raspail.

David Martin said...

I'd never heard of him.

Yes, I do. That's why I named my blog this. Do you have a problem with that?

Corinna Swetz said...

Thank you for the article. I definitely agree that the earthquake was a Divine warning to Francis. The Eucharist is the very centerpiece of our Faith and when the hierarchy give It this kind of ill treatment, we're bound to see warnings from Above.

La Monja mística Hildegarda de Bingen, de la Orden de San Benito de Nursia predijo que:
La nociva doctrina del hijo de perdición hará temblar la tierra:

“En realidad el Anticristo, poseído por el diablo, cuando abra su boca para su perversa enseñanza destruirá todo lo que Dios había establecido en la Ley Antigua y en la Nueva, y afirmará que el incesto, la fornicación, el adulterio y otros tales no son pecado”

“Aparecerán muchas señales en el sol, en la luna y en las estrellas, en las aguas y en los otros elementos y en todas las criaturas, y de la observación de todos estos prodigios, que se podrán contemplar como si estuvieran pintados en un cuadro, se podrán predecir los males futuros, por lo que la tristeza de los hombres será tal que considerarán la muerte casi con indiferencia […] Estas tribulaciones continuarán hasta que el Hijo de la Perdición abra la boca para predicar su nociva doctrina. Y cuando haya pronunciado sus palabras de falsedad y mentira, el cielo y la tierra se echarán a temblar”

Tancred said...

The mystic Hildegard Nun of Bingen, of the Order of Saint Benedict of Nursia, predicted that:
The noxious doctrine of the son of perdition will shake the earth:

"In reality the Antichrist, possessed by the devil, when he opens his mouth for his perverse teaching will destroy all that God had established in the Old and New Law, and will affirm that incest, fornication, adultery and other such not they are sin "

"Many signs will appear in the sun, in the moon and in the stars, in the waters and in the other elements and in all the creatures, and from the observation of all these wonders, which will be able to be contemplated as if they were painted in a painting , future evils can be predicted, so that the sadness of men will be such that death will be considered with almost indifference [...] These tribulations will continue until the Son of Perdition opens his mouth to preach his noxious doctrine. And when he has uttered his words of falsehood and falsehood, heaven and earth will tremble. "

Thanks Tancred--

"And when he has uttered his words of falsehood and falsehood, heaven and earth will tremble. "

Now we know sure our Francis must be a Son of Perdition . It is good to have this matter cleared up.

I have a problem with Nationalists infiltrating and poisoning the Latin Mass Community.

And thanks for admitting that Raspail influenced your decision in naming your blog.

Did you cut off your ties with the Golden Dawn when you "converted" to the Catholic Faith?

dxv515 said...

Raspail should be read regardless if Nationalists hijacked the work

Michael Dowd said...


Why do you have a problem with "Nationalists infiltrating and poisoning the Latin Mass Community"?

I would think Nationalists would be natural allies of TLM.

dxv515 said...

Several reasons here are just a few

Nationalist Salvini is an Apostate Catholic
Nationalist Bannon is an Apostate Catholic
Nationalist Roberto Fiore played a part in the Bologna massacre

Our Lady of La Salette on the Forerunner to the Antichrist who is a Nationalists:

"A forerunner of the Antichrist, with his troops drawn from many nations, will wage war against the true Christ, sole Savior of the world; he will shed much blood and will seek to annihilate the cult of God so as to be regarded as a god." Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)

Some men do hide their malice by hiding behind Mass attendance etc. The Church has always warned us about this.

I find that self pro-claimed Nationalists have no true devotional life no true piety but they are able to sit through one hour of a Latin Mass.

The gun issue. Most nationalists love their guns and carry firearms to Mass.

But if you pay attention the only ones carrying weapons are the soldiers in the Army of the Forerunner to the Antichrist and they will use their weapons to murder the Fatima Pope and faithful as Our Lady of Fatima has said.

You can't hold a crucifix in one hand and a gun in the other - this should be obvious

Nationalism is blessed by Christ, provided that nations are Christian, but the one-world borderless government-religion is precisely the work of Antichrist.
