Is Francis’ Sympathetic Fascination with Judas MORE than a Cause of Concern?

Is Francis’ Sympathetic Fascination with Judas MORE than a Cause of Concern?

From the Lifesitenews YouTube Platform…

According to the Vatican’s own newspaper L’Osservatore Romano, Pope Francis has placed a painting of a resurrected nude Jesus ministering to Judas, Christ’s own betrayer, behind the Pope’s desk in his personal study in the Vatican.


It seems to me that Pope Francis’ sympathetic fascination for Judas is much more than a mere cause of concern – it’s more like an indication of a great darkness in his own soul, and that’s without even taking into consideration that scandalous painting of Our Lord placed behind the Pope’s desk in his personal study in the Vatican.  A very great darkness, indeed, in his own soul.  That’s what I think. What say you?

    Since Pope Francis is a type of Judas, I suppose he gravitates naturally towards the worst sinner ever born. Francis, or Bergoglio, is not only a Judas, he is a deeply sick man, an enemy of the Church, and an enemy of God.

    But this affirmation of betrayal goes hand-in-hand with selling the Church out to the Satanic New World Order. Betrayers of a feather flock together. Perhaps Francis has the delusion that at his particular judgment, Our Lord will forgive him for his betrayal, so he finds this deranged painting comforting.

    “Jesus answered: He it is to whom I shall reach bread dipped. And when he had dipped the bread, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon. And after the morsel, Satan entered into him.”

    I wonder when Satan entered into Bergoglio? Or was it Luther? What morsel did he consume? He needs to have an exorcism before he destroys himself, and the Church with him.

        I just came across this post from Mary Ann Krietzer’s blog, Les Femmes.

        I would like to draw your attention to a very interesting comment by Codysmom:

        “Your comment about exorcists is especially interesting given Father Ripperger’s latest video:–Ls.
        It’s been a few weeks since I’ve listened to it but this is what I recall:

        Fr. R states that exorcisms have become almost impossible to complete. In fact, he lays out a timeline of how long exorcisms have taken during the last 60 years. While he never mentions specific popes, the time required to complete an exorcism seems to vary with who the pope is.
        For example, prior to 1963, exorcisms could be completed within a few days to a few weeks. After 1963 the time extended to 2 months. Around the time Fr. R became an exorcist about 15 years ago (2005? Benedict?) the exorcism completion time shortened again . Now, he says, they cannot be completed.” (End comment.)

        Now I ask – what was Papa Bene’s momentous act during his reign? To me, it was the freeing of the TLM. Whether that had an effect on the exorcisms, I don’t know but I like to think it did. But is Bergoglio so bad that even an increase of TLMs don’t do much?

        In other words, has God withdrawn His grace from the Church?

        I’m not sure about Fr Ripperberger – I have a vague memory of being warned off of him, but I’m not sure. In any case, that video isn’t working.

        I don’t know enough about exorcisms to know about the timelines but I think Editor has said on here many times that it is obvious that God has withdrawn his grace from the Church. If I’m wrong, she’ll correct me, but I know I’ve quoted it a lot, so I’m pretty sure she did.

        Many thanks for that link to the Les Femmes’ blog – I had the honour of being a guest in Mary Ann’s home several years ago when I attended a conference; her newsletter is first class.

        About Fr Ripperberger – like Lily, I am not sure about him, but there is no question that God has withdrawn His grace from the Church at this time. It’s as obvious as Papa Francis’s scandalous words and behaviour.

        We need a new pope urgently and the Consecration of Russia even more urgently, although I suspect we need the new pope first – for obvious reasons.

    Bergoglio has REFUSED to go home to Argentina…His abomination of misrule there with Pardo, Pulia,maccarrone SUCUNZA , Grassi abuse coverups for DECADES BY HIM and more recently in depaglia and Zunchetta. Msy. MAKE him identify with Judas not Jesus now.. SERIOUSLY.

      I don’t think he’s wanted back in Argentina – even for a visit. The very first commentary I read about him – certainly ONE of the first – was written by a woman who had met him and warned that he would be a terrible pontiff.

        Margaret USA,

        I have tried and failed to locate the letter online but I’ve emailed the Editor of Christian Order, because I’m almost certain that is where I read it originally. I can’t find it there, though, on a quick search but as soon as I hear back I’ll let you know.

      • editor

        Margaret USA,

        The Editor of Christian Order has replied to my request, as follows:

        “I imagine this is the letter you’re referring to? The woman actually is Mexican. A fantastic letter. I painstakingly translated it from the Spanish myself (based on the similarity with languages I know like French and Italian) because the online English versions were obviously far from the real meaning and whole passages had clearly omitted. So I’m pretty sure it’s the most accurate version available. ”

      Mary Anne,

      Unfortunately, the only people with access to his office, probably are imbued with “the Francis Effect” – faithlessness – and will be of one mind with him (AND Judas!)

      It’s a shocker, all right. We have not only never had a pope who attacked and undermined the Faith as Francis does, but who publicly praised Christ’s betrayer! You honestly could not make this stuff up.

Have you ever put up Census to ask The Good People on here if they think that this Man is a Catholic.I have read all of the Garbage on LSN and of course today their is more. My personal opinion is He is Not and probably never has been a Catholic. He is a Marxist at best and a Communist at worst. Do you really think that He doesnt know the Scandal He,s causing.

        I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve said on here that Papa Francis is about as Catholic as Sadiq Khan (with apologies to Sadiq Khan).

        No need for any poll on this blog – I’ve yet to meet with anyone who disagrees…

        Now, there’s an invitation to the trolls among us 😀

    The whole thing, missing the Holy Thursday Mass, the picture over the desk, the pages in the Vatican newspaper about it all, is mind-boggling.

    I definitely agree about the “darkness” of Pope Francis’ soul. He is in clear danger of losing his soul for all eternity and we should pray very hard for his conversion.

    April 8, 2021 at 10:42 am
  • Josephine

    This pope leaves me lost for words every time.

    His attraction to Judas Iscariot can only be because he is trying to justify to himself, what he is doing to destroy the Church.

    I wonder if the “darkness” of this pope’s soul (which I agree about) goes to the unthinkable? I mean if he is that fixated on Judas, what about Satan?

    Editor, if that is out of order, please delete it, but it’s in my mind and I can’t help wondering but I do pray for him every day (if that helps not to get me banned, LOL!)

    Obscene is the word that comes to my mind. I cannot imagine any Christian – never mind a pope – putting that picture up in a room. It’s obscene.

    The other thing that’s obscene is the fact that church leaders are “speaking out” about Pope Francis but not taking action to get rid of him. The likes of Cardinal Burke, Archbishop Vigano and Bishop Schneider have said enough. They need to actually do something now.

    April 8, 2021 at 2:08 pm
    • Josephine

      I couldn’t agree more. It’s well past time for the top hierarchy to act to get this pope to apologise for his scandalous words and behaviour and if he doesn’t want to do that, to call a council or whatever is within their power to get him deposed.

      I think this article about him by Chris Ferrara is worth a read.

      April 8, 2021 at 2:12 pm
      • Margaret Mary


        That’s a fantastic article by Christopher Ferrara – he is so right, there has never been a pope like this one but also right to say that Our Lady of Fatima would have foreseen this and it’s probably mentioned in the hidden part of the Third Secret.

        I read that Ferrara article the other day – it’s very good – I’d love to read his take on this Judas scandal x twice. Westminster Fly posted a link to a report that Francis has put up a second picture of the same obscene kind. It’s just too much beyond shocking.

  • RCAVictor

    I think Josephine said it best so far: “His attraction to Judas Iscariot can only be because he is trying to justify to himself, what he is doing to destroy the Church.” [I think he’s also trying to console himself.]

    I am certain that this Pope knows he is laying waste to the Church – in fact, that is his stated objective! (“Make a mess”) He also seems to know that he is going to Hell because of it – I believe he said as much to McCarrick when Uncle Teddy was flying high with his sexual escapades and cash delivery missions. Will he repent? I wouldn’t bet on it. Instead of repenting, he has imagined a Hell with mercy!

    But why would he do this? Two motivations: one, his greed for money and power. Two, the Modernist motivation (or, one of them): Catholic tradition has failed to save the world, so the Faith must be re-done, reformed, updated, or whatever the latest deceptive term is.

    In handing the Church over to the Satanists’ globalist project to save the world, however, Francis reveals that he is nothing more than an intellectual lightweight who can’t even see through the obvious fraud of trillionaires and billionaires describing their agenda as saving the planet, when it is nothing more than saving and increasing their own wealth and power.

    Money and power: the theme song of the Satanists, and the theme song of Francis the Demented Traitor.

    Oh, I’ll add one more thing to that theme song: death. The Satanists are a death cult.

    Dear Editor,

    It would appear that our Pontiff has decided to openly declare his apostasy. This morning’s article on LifeSiteNews where he sent a letter to the satanic New World Order cabal, seems to confirm it.
    Not that there was much doubt before hand.

    As usual not a word about God in his diatribe.

    Could it be possible he is crying out for help by his fascination with Judas? Do we have a psychoanalyst on here?
    So many questions.

    “Do you think I care if Aslan dooms me to death?” said the King. “That would be nothing, nothing at all. Would it not be better to be dead than to have this horrible fear that Aslan has come and is not like the Aslan we have believed in and longed for? It is as if the sun rose one day and were a black sun.”

  • RCAVictor

    I came across the following excerpt from The Soul of the Apostolate this morning, and I immediately thought of Faith of Our Fathers’ proposed poll question. This is from Part V, “Principles and Hints for the Interior Life”: [Author’s emphases]

    “At every priestly function, I [as priest] can almost hear You saying to me, ‘My son, how is it possible for you to imagine that after I made you, by these divine powers, another Christ, I should tolerate that in your practical routine of living you should be WITHOUT CHRIST or even AGAINST CHRIST?’

    …”if you adopt a program of systematic infidelities, and return from these to your sublime functions without remorse, you will only arouse My anger!”

    “With what severity, too, does my Church forbid the priest to approach the altar or to confer the Sacraments if there remain one single mortal sin upon his conscience! Inspired by Me, she goes still further. Her very rites compel you to be either truly holy or an imposter. Either you will have to make up your mind to live an interior lie, or else resign yourself to say to Me from the beginning of Mass to the end, things that you do not really think, and ask of Me things that you do not desire.

    There is an anecdote from the conclave that elected Ratzinger in 2005 that I think sheds a lot of light on this dark situation. Apparently Bergoglio received a large bloc of votes early on, but withdrew himself from consideration because he wasn’t ready to shoulder the responsibility.

    From which I speculate that he knew full well what was expected of him by the St. Gallen Mafia in 2005, shrank from it then, but embraced it in 2013. As we all seem to agree, he knows full well what he is doing, and he also knows he has made of himself an enemy of God. Thus his resort to the false hope of Judas’ reconciliation.

    Perhaps a glimmer of hope: why did he shrink from the job of laying waste to the Church in 2005? Pardon me for resorting to Hollywood’s “Star Wars” fantasy, but as Luke Skywalker said to Darth Vader (who was actually his father), “I feel the good in you, the conflict.”

      RCA Victor,

      That’s an amazing post from you. I found it SO helpful, not least because I was talking to a friend today, who has an adult child who is extremely difficult. She can’t see that the root of her problems lie in the fact that she really doesn’t know the faith properly although she goes to Mass regularly. That quote from The Soul of the Apostolate is just perfect for her. I know that passage is meant for priests but I think it applies to us all. Praying the Mass is a lie if we are not at least trying to live faithful lives.

      Your final paragraph about the Pope is very interesting, but whatever was true about him in 2005 has gone down the drain now, IMHO. He’s just a very bad pope and he is heading to join Judas unless he catches himself on asap.

    I am appalled (as usual) at this pope’s behaviour. To have what amounts to a devotion to Judas Iscariot just beggars belief.

    But remember, Francis twisted scripture before, to make it look like Our Lady was angry with God.

    He’s not got a Catholic thought in his head. It’s just amazing.

    April 9, 2021 at 8:53 pm
  • Michaela

    I was looking for the letter from the Argentine woman who knew Francis as her Archbishop before he was elected. Her letter to him was published in Christian Order. I can’t find it but I found an article on him which is very interesting. It’s a bit long, so I copied the final paragraph and the link. This was before he publicly venerated Judas, which is why I think the forceful ending would be even more forceful now.

    “What has become of the papacy?

    Surveying all this as he did the activities and views of the Sillon, St. Pius X would doubtless ask: ‘What has become of the Catholicism of the hierarchy? Of the papacy?’ Rhetorical questions we ponder every day. With even greater urgency now that grave doubts have been raised about the validity of the Bergoglian pontificate in light of the conniving St. Gallen “mafia club.”

    Indeed, Cardinal Daneels’ revelation about that Liberal Catholic cabal recalled the late great Father Vincent Miceli’s warning of the presence of mini-Antichrists within the Church, working as demolition squads with animus delendi — the desire to destroy — the Mystical Body of Christ. With their preferred candidate finally set in place — as a mere Bishop of Rome, eschewing all symbols of supreme and universal papal authority and power — the pure ‘Gospel revolution’ (apostolic, charitable, and supernatural) immediately transfigured into one more recycled revolt of the “post-1789 era” (always political and social, forever leaving death and dissolution in their wake).

    In the end, as blind and deluded about the state of the world as he is about the Church, Francis the Great Revolutionary Reformer simply lacks the faith and understanding to wrest the nations from an unjust and corrupting capitalism without at the same time throwing them into an iron-fisted and persecuting socialism. He and his backers have lost their way: the way of Jesus Christ; the way of the Church; the way of mankind’s salvation. The path of St Vincent de Paul, not Leonardo Boff, and other faithless, unrepentant Liberation ‘Theologians’ Francis has rehabilitated.

    It all leaves us in a devilish bind. But let us take heart from Professor John Rao’s reminder that

    History is filled with popes who are good and bad, intelligent and mentally challenged, efficient and hopelessly incompetent, pastorally calamitous and pastorally fruitful. It was perhaps inevitable that, given the preferential option for pluralism adopted by a “pastoral” Council, the Church would be forced to endure the reign of a wilful pope ready to impose his own crochets upon the faithful or voluntarily promote those of others he admires. Proof after proof of that wilfulness is offered to us every day.

    All the more reason to pray everyday for the Holy Father: for his conversion, and our speedy deliverance from his wilful revolutionary rule.

    It is very painful to have to witness our beloved mother, the Holy Catholic Church, being dragged through the mud by this vile filth. Probably nowhere near as painful as witnessing our mangled, bloody Lord die on the Cross…

    …but I think it also draws us closer to God, as our horrified prayers increase in intensity and our desire to console Our Lord and Lady burns more fiercely. Thus Satan will eventually reap the opposite outcome of that which he intends – just as happened with the Crucifixion.

    April 10, 2021 at 4:23 pm

      RCA Victor,

      You are right to say that it is terrible to witness the filth in the Church – even Pope Benedict said that.

      You are also right to say that living through this should bring us closer to God. All suffering should do that, really, but I take your point that this is particularly painful suffering, watching the devil attacking Holy Church so savagely.

      April 10, 2021 at 4:52 pm
    • editor

      RCA Victor,

      Since Christ and His Church are one, I think your comparison of the suffering inflicted on Holy Mother Church in these times with the suffering and death of Our Lord, is perfectly fitting. Very sad but perfectly appropriate.

      We do have the assurances of Our Lord and Our Lady that the victory is already His, so we need to just keep doing our bit to defend the Faith and spread The Truth, bearing in mind that we may be called to account for not doing so, at any moment.

      I think nobody puts it better than Archbishop Vigano – his words should jolt us into acting in every possible way to fulfil our Baptismal and Confirmation duty, not leaving ourselves to plead guilty to those sombre words of Pope Saint Pius X that it is the apathy of Catholics to blame for the state of the world and the Church…

      Archbishop Vigano….

      “To bear witness to corruption in the hierarchy of the Catholic Church was a painful decision for me, and remains so. But I am an old man, one who knows he must soon give an accounting to the Judge for his actions and omissions, one who fears Him who can cast body and soul into Hell. A Judge who, even in his infinite mercy will render to every person salvation or damnation according to what he has deserved. Anticipating the dreadful question from that Judge – ‘How could you, who had knowledge of the truth, keep silent in the midst of falsehood and depravity?’ What answer could I give?”

    It makes perfect sense to me that Francis would celebrate Judas, because Francis is the modern Judas; he’s the full embodiment of the Judas Council (VII) and thus of Modernism, which is the synthesis of all heresies.

    Editor: the rest of your post has been deleted because if you had read our House Rules you would have noted the following statement:

    We do not have the required authority to pronounce on [Francis’s] papacy, so that line of discussion is off limits here.

    Any further posts from you submitted here will be moderated, so don’t waste your time if you intend to continue this line of prohibited discussed. Francis is a shocking pope, a terrible pope, but he is the pope. Pray for God to act soon – whether that be to convert Francis or to remove him.

    Thank you.
