|Please tell me this idol isn't the Virgin Mary.|
Various bloggers and internet personalities have argued back and forth on this one question for months, if not for the past 6 years since Francis announced on The Balcony that he was...well, just plain old "Francis". The longer he is pope, the more vigorous are the arguments because, as the years have gone by, Francis has caused more than alarming discontent among the Catholic Faithful.
When people asked the question - "Is he, or is he not?" - I answered to what I thought was truly the case. That he was. Then I would have to remind them, some people at least, that the Holy Spirit does not elect the pope, therefore Francis was not the choice the Holy Spirit had in mind, that the Leftist Marxist Cardinals could care less what the Holy Spirit said, that is, if they even believed in Him at all.

As a result, more than a few popes have been elected by Cardinals who have been sinful men and poorly equipped to lead the church in full accordance with God's desires. Note the Book of Revelation foretells the election of terrible popes just before the end times. Not all popes are necessarily saints in heaven, and such sinful men could never have been selected by the Holy Spirit.
But I digress. Just two days ago I changed my stance and am now weighing in on the "Invalidly Elected, Therefore Anti-Pope" theory since it has the most evidence, although scholarly evidence is not what convinced me. Cardinal Kasper and the Prophecies of St Malachy did.
1. The thing that put me over the edge was leftist Marxist German Cardinal Kasper's statement that "the next conclave will elect a pope like Francis" based on the pope's stacking of the college of cardinals. He said, "I don't believe a contrary pope could be elected at the next conclave. People would not accept that. I don't believe people would be pleased if the next conclave elected a pope of opposite mind."

2. That same day as I was perusing the Internet I came across an article quoting Dr Thomas Groome, that aging Leftist dissident, saying that the Prophecies of Malachy are nonsense, "a grand old fun tale that have about as much reliability as the morning horoscope."
"That's it!" I thought. "The prophecies must be true." They must be true because an authentic Catholic would never believe anything Thomas Groome says. Ever. If he says one thing, the opposite is true. Always.
After Benedict XVI, the Prophecies of Malachy state, "In the final persecution of the holy Roman Church there will sit..."
In the Lignum Vitae, the line "In persecutione extrema S.R.E. sedebit", [S.R.E. is Latin for Sacra Romana Ecclesia, the Holy Roman (Catholic) Church] forms a separate sentence and paragraph of its own. While often read as part of the "Peter the Roman" prophecy, other interpreters view it as a separate and incomplete sentence explicitly referring to additional popes between Glory of the Olive (Pope Benedict XVI) and Peter the Roman, (the last pope).
At first I concluded that St Malachy prophesied true popes only, however after looking at his prophecies, I see where he does include several anti-popes (Historically there have been over 40 anti-popes, so why can't we have another one today?) from the past. For instance, in 1410-1415 there was an anti-pope named John XXIII while the true pope John XXIII reigned in 1958-1963.
Francis is definitely not Peter the Roman "who will pasture his sheep in many tribulations (Francis is MAKING many tribulations), and when these things are finished, the city of seven hills (Rome) will be destroyed, and the dreadful judges will judge his people. The end."
|Francis' Tree of Life with fake parrots|
Catholics bowing down on the ground in a circle to a pregnant fertility goddess (apparently the child has not yet been aborted) is straight out of the 1966 Jesuit playbook. It shows that Francis, by looking on, smiling and approving of this pagan ritual, is an anti-pope more than anything else he has done.
Also, the indigenous soil brought from the Amazon in order to plant The Tree of Life with the fake parrots on it might not be right for the climate in Italy. It's indigenous to the Amazon, not Europe! How did that dirt get past international inspection? Was it brought through on the Pope's airplane, therefore never inspected? What if it has insects that multiply and make the rest of the Vatican Gardens as disease ridden as Francis' theology? I hope that tree dies.
