Synod of Toledo XI (675 AD)…

…judges Francis’ idea that catholics and muslims adore the same God

  • Outside of the Trinity, there is no nature which may be believed to be God

This Trinity, distinct in Persons, [is] one indivisible and undifferentiated substance, [a united substance, indivisible and undifferentiated in its] strength, power, and majesty; [we believe that] apart from it [this] there is no nature that is divine, whether of an angel or of a spirit or of any other power, which may be believed to be God. (Denzinger-Hünermann 18. Synod of Toledo, Symbolum Toletanum I, September of 400)

…judges Francis’ prayer in the ecumenical and interreligious Meeting in Sarajevo

  • The one and true God: we say that the Father is God, the Son is God, and the Holy Spirit is God each singly – yet there are not three Gods

For, if we are asked concerning the individual persons, we must confess that each is God. Therefore, we say that the Father is God, the Son is God, and the Holy Spirit is God each singly; yet there are not three Gods, but there is one God. […] Therefore, this Holy Trinity, which is the one and true God. (Denzinger-Hünermann 529-530. Synod of Toledo XI. Creed of Faith, November 7, 675 AD)
