Francis’ Main Innovations…

Pope Francis during the Mass at Saint Peter's Basilica


Benedykt_XVI_(2010-10-17)_2The Pope is not an absolute monarch whose thoughts and desires are law. On the contrary: the Pope’s ministry is a guarantee of obedience to Christ and to his Word. He must not proclaim his own ideas, but rather constantly bind himself and the Church to obedience to God’s Word, in the face of every attempt to adapt it or water it down, and every form of opportunism.

Pope John Paul II did this when, in front of all attempts, apparently benevolent to the human person, and in the face of erroneous interpretations of freedom, he unequivocally stressed the inviolability of the human being and of human life from the moment of conception until natural death. The freedom to kill is not true freedom, but a tyranny that reduces the human being to slavery.

The Pope knows that in his important decisions, he is bound to the great community of faith of all times, to the binding interpretations that have developed throughout the Church’s pilgrimage. Thus, his power is not being above, but at the service of, the Word of God. It is incumbent upon him to ensure that this Word continues to be present in its greatness and to resound in its purity, so that it is not torn to pieces by continuous changes in usage.

The Chair is – let us say it again – a symbol of the power of teaching, which is a power of obedience and service, so that the Word of God- the truth! – may shine out among us and show us the way of life. (Benedict XVI, Homily in Saint John the Lateran, May 7, 2005)


Who is Francis? A prophet for our times? God’s instrument for the renovation of the Church? The precursor of a new springtime of the Faith?
A collection of his principal teachings confronted with the Magisterium of the Church can be an excellent aid to accurately judge these questions…

  1. God bless all of you holy priests for doing what you are doing in creating this website to get the truth out. Since Francis took St. Peter’s chair 3.5 years ago, I’ve had a very uncomfortable feeling about him. I kept thinking, “what is wrong with me for thinking this way?”. I never bothered looking to see if others had doubts like me, until 2.5 weeks ago. Fr. Jacques Hamel’s murder had a very deep impact on me…..when Francis was asked about St. Hamel’s murder, he couldn’t even bring himself to say anything against ISIS! The most he said about St. Hamel’s murder was that it was “absurd”! I was pushed over the edge and chose to seek out others who may have doubts about Francis like I do. I’ve been finding so many websites that point out all of the anti-Catholic and anti-doctrine statements that Francis has said since becoming pope. After all of the reading I’ve done in the last several days, I can only come to one conclusion and that is that Francis is the false prophet and we are in the end times. There is no other way to explain why Francis vilifies all Catholics, especially traditional and fundamentalist Catholics, or true followers of Christ. He is so overtaken by Satan that it’s undeniable. Please continue to keep up your blog and get the truth out to faithful Catholics who truly love Christ! God help us all.

    • I kept getting cold chills at the things he was saying, but I kept trying to give him the benefit of the doubt since he was “pope”. The last straw for me was when I read that he’d taken up for ‘poor repentant Judas’. I could not believe my eyes, so I looked it up and he’s done it MANY times. Pure evil. I think he’s an antipope and Benedict is still the true pontiff.

  2. You can supplement your commentaries with material from St. Peter Canisius’s Summa Doctrinae Christianae. The last edition (1832-34) has not only Canisius’s text, as do earlier editions, but also includes quotations from the Scriptures and Fathers that Canisius cited in his own text.
