Pope Francis’ Endgame

With all this heresy coming fast and furious, we have to wonder what our Pontiff’s endgame is. Read on for some possibilities…

Michael Matt at the Remnant has written an excellent, heart-felt analysis: “The Synod on the Family” and the Fate of the Church.  Matt included a lengthy quote from the Vatican about Pope Francis’ homily for October 15 in which the Pontiff spoke on that old Lutheran favorite, Romans Chapter 3, Verses 27-30 (NB: Verse 31, which says that the law of works is not overthrown by faith, but upheld by it, was omitted [by Francis] ).

Then Matt remarked,

In this homily Francis reveals a new theology, one in which “the key of knowledge” is his theory of mercy, a theory which does not seek repentance and penance from sinners. …

"Let us not be fooled by the experts who put limits on this love."
“Let us not be fooled by the experts who put limits on this love.”

Moreover, in this new theology, all are saved regardless of their observation or refusal to observe the Commandments. Thieves, adulterers, murderers, those who pray to false gods— the number of the “saved” knows no limits. Strikingly, all are saved, except those who disagree with this new theology, such as those who point to Jesus’s depictions of Hell in the Bible, and the explicit words of Saint Paul himself on reception of the Eucharist. In this theology Jesus and the Saints themselves are among the few in Hell. How incredible.

At this point, and in retrospect, we must now look back and ask ourselves in all seriousness, “What has happened to the Church?” “What is the ‘Synod on the Family’ really about?” “Can the laity really tolerate this new Franciscan theology, which will most certainly eventually bring homosexual ‘married’ and/or homosexual sexually active priests to the Church?” Add to that list unapologetic adulterers, murderers, thieves and even those who pray to false gods. What a free-for-all religion that would be! One thing is for certain, and that is if this theology of “salvation for all” is allowed to enter the Catholic Church, the laity will flow out from it like blood and water from Christ’s side.  …

The only people who can determine what can be done at this point are the Pope and the bishops, and it does not look as if they agree with each other. …

Matt concludes that the faithful may need to turn to the SSPX for spiritual nourishment,

“especially now that their sacraments have been recognized as valid and licit for the Year of Mercy. Moreover, maybe it has come to pass that even after the Year of Mercy ‘irregular canonical status’ is preferable to open heresy.”
