Pray for Pope Francis

Word has come to the EF that Enzo Bianchi, "prior" of the Bose Monastic Community and confidant of Pope Francis, has communicated to the leadership of the Federation of "Evangelical" "Churches" in Italy that Pope Francis has finally accepted Jesus Christ as his "personal Lord and Savior" and has thus been "born again." We at the EF believe that this conversion bodes well for the authentic reform of the Vatican. Naturally, given how prone the Curia is to maintaining the status quo, the Pope's conversion has of yet borne no visible fruit, but certain power players in the Vatican are now apparently afraid of being fired, should the new "Evangelical" pope seek to clean the Augean stables of his own staff. Cardinal Coccopalmerio ("Cardinal Cocco" for short) and his fellow partiers, for instance, have threatened Pope Francis with blackmail should he actually follow through on his newfound convictions. They, apparently, have proof that the Pope is actively plotting to interfere in the next American election so as to thwart Putin's foreign policy and to secure the election of Beto O'Rourke. Oh, and apparently the Pope likes Beto's "poetry" too.

April Fools!

Cardinal Brandmüller: Enthusiasm Surrounding the Pope is Superficial

"That is superficial. Were this a religious movement, the churches would be full "- Regarding the abolition of celibacy and women priests: "We draw clear boundaries faith clear. This is not a sign of weakness but of strength"

Hamburg ( Emeritus German Cardinal Walter Brandmüller (85) does not think much of the enthusiasm for Pope Francis: "It is superficial. Were this a religious movement, the churches would be full," said the former president of the Pontifical Committee for Historical Sciences, in an interview with the Hamburg magazine "Zeit Geschichte" Brandmüller opposes the abolition of celibacy and is against women priests: "We draw clear boundaries regarding faith. This is not a sign of weakness but of strength," he said.

 A "laissez-faire, laissez-aller would mean watching passively the devastation of the Church from within," said the 85-year-old.

An ecumenism uniting the Protestant and Catholic believers could not exist with this doctrine, because "what is true now was true then, the Church in Luther's sense was a purely spiritual mass. Thus Protestantism is contrary to the Catholic faith."

 As the greatest threat to the Church today Brandmüller sees the absolutism of the individual: "Modernity does not ask: What is true?, but: What good is it? Is it feasible? Pragmatism and utilitarianism are the great heresies of our time."
