More news from the Bergoglio Reformation, this time on the Pope’s new and improved Jesus.
In this morning’s post, Sandro Magister reported on our Humble Pope® and his interviewing friend, Eugenio Scalfari who recently wrote of him in “La Repubblica”. As you are aware, Pope Bergoglio likes to give off-the-cuff interviews to Scalfari, in which no records are kept except that which Scalfari jots down after the fact, ostensibly relying on his 93 year old memory. Thus allowing for the convenient modernist ambiguity and deniability, although to date Pope Francis has not denied these interviews no matter how scandalous. The following quotes are from Magister.
Scalfari’s La Repubblica article was dated October 9, and in it Scalfari spoke of the “revolution” of this pontificate,
“Pope Francis has abolished the places where souls were supposed to go after death: hell, purgatory, heaven. The idea he holds is that souls dominated by evil and unrepentant cease to exist, while those that have been redeemed from evil will be taken up into beatitude, contemplating God.”
Observing immediately afterward:
“The universal judgment that is in the tradition of the Church therefore becomes devoid of meaning. It remains a simple pretext that has given rise to splendid paintings in the history of art. Nothing other than this.” (Sandro Magister)

“There is in his preaching, however, something that tends toward a practical overshadowing of the final judgment and of the opposite destinies of blessed and damned.”
On Wednesday, October 11, at the general audience in Saint Peter’s Square, Francis said that such a judgment is not to be feared, because “at the end of our history there is the merciful Jesus,” and therefore “everything will be saved. Everything.”
In the text distributed to the journalists accredited to the Holy See, this last word, “everything,” was emphasized in boldface.”
Magister also called attention to Pope Bergoglio’s words at Fatima this past May:
Last May 12 as well, while visiting Fatima, Francis showed that he wanted to set Jesus free from his reputation as an inflexible judge at the end of time. And to do this he warned against the following false image of Mary:
“A Mary of our own making: one who restrains the arm of a vengeful God; one sweeter than Jesus the ruthless judge.”
* * *
… at times Pope Francis even takes the liberty of rewriting the words of Sacred Scripture as he sees fit.
For example, in the morning homily at Santa Marta on September 4, 2014, at a certain point the pope attributed to Saint Paul these “scandalous” words: “I boast only of my sins.” And he concluded by inviting the faithful present to “boast” of their own sins, in that they have been forgiven from the cross by Jesus.
But in none of Paul’s letters can such an expression be found. The apostle instead says of himself: “If it is necessary to boast, I will boast of my weaknesses” (2 Corinthians 11:30), after having listed all the hardships of his life – the imprisonments, the floggings, the shipwrecks. Or: “About myself I will not boast, except of my weaknesses” (2 Corinthians 12:5). Or again: “He said to me: ‘My grace is enough for you; strength is in fact made fully manifest in weakness.’ I will therefore gladly boast of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me”
Magister ends by contrasting this novel teaching of Pope Francis with that of his predecessor, Pope Benedict, quoting from Benedict’s encyclical, “Spe Salvi”,
“Grace does not make wrong into right. It is not a sponge which wipes everything away, so that whatever someone has done on earth ends up being of equal value. Dostoevsky was right to protest against this kind of Heaven and this kind of grace in his novel ‘The Brothers Karamazov.’ Evildoers, in the end, do not sit at table at the eternal banquet beside their victims without distinction, as though nothing had happened.”
Pope Francis has surely taken us “to the perimeters”, don’t you think? Clearly we have now in this utterly unique Pope a Vicar of Christ who is a vast improvement on the old Jesus Who spoke of hell and its eternal fires, of weeping and gnashing of teeth where the worm does not die.
As foretold, the apostasy has reached the pinnacle, with the new and improved merciful Jesus, made over in the image and likeness of good Pope Francis.
For those of you who are asking, “How long O Lord, how long?”, we have yet to see the worst of it, I’m afraid. Stay tuned…
