The Dissolution of the Papacy Into Limp Wristed Liberalism?

pope-francisAs Petrus Romanus the Final Pope is Here co-written by myself and Thomas Horn was recently released in a new edition, recent actions by Pope Francis necessitate a response. In my first article for Before it’s News, I suggest we might be seeing harbingers of the dissolution of the papacy as Rome is judged in accord with “City of Seven Hills will be destroyed” at the culmination of the Malachy prophecy.

    Hi Cris,

    My question is whether the fact the new pope served communion to Biden and Pelosi is a break from former practice? Were they being denied communion prior? Is this documented somewhere, in reports or articles and what not?

  2. Joseph D'Hippolito says:

    Cris, the Catholic Church descended into “limp-wristed liberalism” long before Francis became pope. So has mainline Protestantism. Evangelicalism is following suit faster than anybody wants to believe.

      Amen to that.

      Very true! When I was a little girl over forty years ago, I remember being in Mass one morning. I had been chewing, very discreetly a small piece of gum (no eating before the Eucharist). The priest stopped his sermon and called out, “If I stop this homily one more time to address you, I will publicly expose you!” I swallowed my gum with great fear! However, a few minutes later, he paused and then publicly called three boys in the back who were ‘talking’. Things were extremely strict back then! (I relate this funny story, because I had such great respect and fear of authority, I was sure the priest was speaking to my gum chewing–thinking he must have eagle eyes.) But now…going into most any church is liken to going to a social club for visiting. Anyways Mr. D’Hippolito is absolutely correct!

  3. Paul says:

    I see the previous Pope as setting the stage for this one.

    Benedict XVI was the fall guy, the ecclesial equivalent of toilet-paper, who was going to take a hit for the team, and clear the way for the current incumbent. He was the “evil Pope” that everybody loved to hate: former member of the Hitlerjugend, head of the Inqusition (in its modern guise), and widely regarded as Protector of Priestly Pederasts. Heck, he even kinda looked like the Emperor from Star Wars.

    So he falls on his sword, and with him the corrupt Old Guard ends, making way for radical Frank, the People’s Pope, who will clean up the Vatican and draw all peoples to himself. …At least that’s the way the script plays. I’m tempted to say that I’ll eat my hat if Frank doesn’t turn out to be the ψευδοπροφητης of Revelation, and am sort-of waiting for his first live-on-TV miracle.

    Interesting times…

  4. Joseph D'Hippolito says:

    Brian, if I recall correctly, I don’t think Pope Francis himself dispensed the Eucharist to Vice President Biden or Representative Pelosi. I think some Eucharistic ministers who did not know who they were or what their stances are did so. Nevertheless, I can tell you that the Catholic Church is double-minded when it comes to serving the Eucharist to political officials who support abortion. Cardinal Timothy Dolan, archbishop of New York, allowed Biden to receive the Eucharist in St. Patrick’s Cathedral. I believe even Pope John Paul II dispensed the Eucharist to Italian politicians who support abortion.

    On this issue, as with so many others with Catholicism, fine words aren’t backed by actions. Sadly, this is SOP for the Catholic Church. It’s a reason among many why I no longer consider myself Catholic.

    • Brian says:

      Thanks for the info Joseph!

    • Deirdre says:

      A few years ago, I read an article where a priest served the Eucharist to a couple drag queens The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. (These folks hate the all things ‘chrisitan’) Anyways the priest gave it to them. My thought was “If you really believed that the Eucharist was the actual body of Christ, you wouldn’t dare serve it to those people for fear they would drop dead from judgement!’ My second thought was, “Why are they tolerating this mockery? Who is going to escort them out the door?”

      The proof is in the pudding. Ecumenism is the name of the game….

  5. Paul says:

    More carefully staged Vatican theatre and a phony consultation exercise.

    It’s like a satire and it would be laughable were it not so woeful: deception for the masses. I wonder what’s next: maybe tonight he’ll ditch his bodyguard and drive his rusty old crate down to the local strip club to pronounce a benediction upon the pole dancers (maybe he’ll praise them for not being “old maids”). The sad thing is that knowledge of God and His way is now so scarce that people believe this calculated populism means that the guy’s a Christian rather than a shrewd Jesuit politico.

    But then antinomianism is the Zeitgeist in the West. And God has merely given godless Westerners the sort of leader they want — a media-savvy false prophet.

    Come quickly, Lord Jesus…

    Options for this story
    Antichrist/Antichrists by Apostle John’s definition are Apostates (those who have departed from the Apostolic Faith) “they went out from us” 1Jn2:19
    That is not to be understood as a physical departure, but rather it is a spiritual condition where Truth is overlaid by Lies for the sole purpose of deception.
    It can be said that an Apostate is a “False Apostle” such as those who profess the succession of The Apostle Peter. The papacy since it’s rise to this very day is Antichrist.
    With the rise of Francis Pontifex Maximus, we see the vocabulary of Apostasy spreading as never before to the world at large in compromising the Gospel of Jesus.
    I have no doubt that Francis like his predecessors is portraying Himself as the two Horned Lamb like figure speaking with the authority of the Dragon Rev13:11 He is just doing it on a greater scale in these End-Times.
    In the days of Apostle John’s Patmos exile “The Throne of Satan” was in Pergamum Rev2:13 Where is this Throne situated Today?

    • jaz says:

      Louthesaint; by your deduction that throne is in Vatican/Rome.

      I believe that Malichi Martin an ex-jesuit said something along the lines of ‘Satan is in the vatican’ in one of his books, I cannot recall which one.

      Good post Amen……

  7. Paul says:

    And speaking of limp-wristed…

    Prominent LGBT magazine names Pope as its “Person of the Year”.

    I’m sure we’ll see more Pope of the Year Show-stuff before 2013’s out…

  8. Joseph D'HIppolito says:

    Paul, I would take that award not with a grain of salt, but with about 5,000 tons of salt. It shouldn’t be surprising that “The Advocate” would take such a stance since it fits the editors’ agenda. The best thing is to watch what Pope Francis does (or doesn’t do), rather than what he says or what say about him.
