Pope Francis: Sins of the Flesh No Big Deal…

Pope Francis: Sins of the Flesh No Big Deal…

To read one of the many reports across the internet on this latest Francis scandal, click here... and then click here to read about the former Archbishop of Paris’ resignation issue. To add insult to injury, many, if not most of these reports are dated 8th December, Feast of Our Lady’s Immaculate Conception.  Absent a profound and public repentance before his death, what a terrible judgment awaits Francis.

Given that the Fatima Saint, Jacinta, revealed (in 1917) Our Lady’s warning that “More souls go to Hell through sins of the flesh than any other sin” is there any indication that he faces anything other than a terrible judgement?  I mean, seriously, is it a good idea for the Pope (any pope!) to belittle the gravity of such sins?

Pray for Pope Francis – urgently.  And for any priests or bishops who think like him, and may quote him in their homilies – thus leading souls to Hell.

Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us!

    What’s left to say about this shocking pope? He is a lost soul, to all appearances.

    Instead of trying to encourage people to overcome temptations to impurity, he justifies sin! It’s beyond belief.

    I went to search for a prayer for purity and found this site which has a short article, very interesting, and a lovely prayer at the end. I hope it is useful to bloggers.

      Josephine,

      You are so right – justifying sin is beyond belief, especially when the person doing the justifying is a pope.

      We keep hearing that as Christians we must never hate anyone, and that is true, but there is some thing which we must hate – and that is sin.

      Only someone who fails to grasp the immensity of God’s holiness, could think otherwise. It seems to me that Francis imagines God’s holiness as being nothing more than the kindness or elementary goodness which we may find in any “kind” or “good” human being. He has no sense of the true holiness of God which abhors even the slightest sin, which is – in fact – an offence against that same holiness of God.

      Here endeth the lesson… for now 😀

    I just hope the report about the Vatican already preparing for the next conclave is true. Francis is just horrendous. He’s actually defending unfaithful, unchaste priests, remember he didn’t want to accept that archbishop of Paris’s resignation, and, at the same time, condemning Carmelite nuns, more or less saying they’re useless! It’s unbelievable. The sooner he’s gone, the better, however God brings it about.

      Agree on all counts.

        If this item from Gloria tv is true, that Pope Francis may well be dying, then he most certainly needs our prayers.

        I agree with Lily who says that All sin is serious. It amounts to Our Lord Jesus Christ being crucified over and over again.

    This man is totally disgraceful. Doesn’t he know that there is no such thing as an unimportant sin? All sin is serious.

    To think it was only “gossip” that made him send that archbishop packing – only for that, he would have left him in post. It’s hard to believe we have such a dreadful pope, right at the time when we need a saint!

      I saw the headline and was just going to mention about Our Lady’s words to St Jacinta about more souls in hell because of the sins of the flesh, but then I saw Editor had mentioned it. Sorry, but I actually do think that Pope Francis might have sociopathic / psychopathic tendencies. This interview – although not related to the above topic – might give you more of an idea why I reach this conclusion: https://gloria.tv/post/C2J3kXXdkU2R6q99YY6UoyKEG

        WF,

        That interview is, indeed, damning of the character of this pope – just in case there’s anyone here who has missed that breaking news when it broke back in 2013!

        The word “devious” jumped out at me – how scandalous to think the character of the pope is devious. God help us all.

      Lily,

      Brother Andrew Boutross (Catholic Voice) in the video clip below expands on your assertion that “all sin is serious”. It was filmed in March 2020, prior to lockdown (so we can see his mouth and nose!) and the only fault I can find in his short talk is his mention of “Saint Pope John Paul II”: happily the quote he’s selected to share with us is a very good one, as is the quote from the Cure D’Ars. Francis should spend more time (or some time!) reading the great priest saints – it would help him, no end…

    The Pope was quick enough to call those who spoke publicly against the Archbishop of Paris “hypocrites”, yet nothing but sympathy and excuses for the Archbishop. So the Archbishop is not a great sinner, just the faithful who were appalled by his double life. Hmmm! Interesting take on sin!

    I also think the Pope’s attempt to lessen the Archbishop’s sin against the 6th Commandment, calling it just a partial transgression, whatever that is, was ridiculous. One either breaks a Commandment or one does not, there’s no partial breaking of a Commandment. The other question mark is over the Pope’s claim that the Archbishop only indulged in carresses and massages with this woman. I would like to know how the Pope knows this. If he understood fallen human nature a bit better then he would know that it’s highly unlikely that this is all there was to the affair. While I regret deeply that yet another shepherd of souls has fallen into mortal sin, it was right that he step down from his position. He should have done this voluntarily and then taken himself off to a monastery somewhere to do penance, but he seemed prepared, with the Pope’s backing, to hush up his double life and carry on as normal. This is actually a greater sin before God than the original fall into impurity. This is the real hypocrisy!

      Athanasius,

      You highlight a key point in this situation – the readiness of Francis to publicly chastise those who speak out FOR the Faith, FOR the keeping of the Commandments etc, while all but condoning the sin(s) of the prelate who is causing immense scandal – and that, in itself, is a huge scandal. That’s a bit clumsily put, but it’s gone the midnight hour and I’m no Cinderella… 😀

      To develop your point about the Pope not understanding human nature as evidenced in his remarks about the “partial” transgression… The whole rationale for regular confession is to work hard on our weaknesses and to seek the grace necessary to stem temptations and prevent venial sins from developing, through bad habit, into mortal sins, as well as, of course, seeking to eradicate mortal sins altogether. That’s also not one of my best pieces of writing, but, hey, I’ve been hunting for that missing shoe all evening and I’m worn out… 😀

      In summary, this pope has almost no comprehension of elementary Catholic belief and very little, if any, moral sense.

      I know I’m letting him off lightly here but worry not, my New Years resolution for 2022 is to be more assertive, if that’s okay with you folks?

    Truly shocking comments in this video from Pope Francis (the only one exempt apparently from the face covering). I was thinking of St. John Bosco’s visions of hell but it appears was first attributed to St. John Chysostom, that the road to hell is paved with the skulls of bishops, when Francis brags that all the clergy are sinners! And why does he preach the retention of sins calling St. Peter a sinner? I understand that was forgiven in the Gospel by the Lake of Galilee very soon after the Resurrection? Shouldn’t the pope emphasize the forgiveness of sins by Christ, for the truly repentant? Instead he implies some social gossip consensus was to blame for refusing to forgive a bishop breaking the commandments. Somewhat less disturbing in the same way is the emphasis on temporal rule of the Church on earth only, saying he is “to rule” with repute and consideration of men, and emphasized by the Vatican’s “vaccine” passports, and neglecting the supernatural. I watch on TV sometimes and there is a prayer for the pope, “Make him a Saint,” it is beyond my comprehension how that could happen but if anyone could do it the Holy Ghost could!

    This is an article giving the full context of the Pope’s comments which he apparently made in a book in 2018. Apart from the crudeness he displays, speaking about “below the waist morality”, I am puzzled because it looks like the interviewer is firstly on his side, and then at the end he quotes saints and Our Lady saying that sins of the flesh take more souls to Hell etc.
    https://veritas-vincit-international.org/2019/08/14/sins-of-the-flesh/#:~:text=Pope%20Francis%20has%20said%20that%20sins%20of%20the,in%20Politics%20and%20Society%3A%20A%20Future%20of%20Faith%E2%80%9D.

    I don’t know if I’m misunderstanding the interviewer, Dominique Wolton, or the Pope, so I’d be interested in what others think.

    This ridiculous harangue is just another example of the meaningless, deceitful word salad that this Pope dumps on the faithful day in and day out, to create confusion, to denigrate the Faith, and to turn cause and effect upside down.

    I read a report the other day claiming that he is ill and will not survive 2022….

      RCA Victor,

      That information (if it’s real and not fake news) about insiders at the Vatican already plotting planning the next conclave has been posted in a couple of places in recent days. That he may not survive 2022 wouldn’t surprise me. I’m not sure I’ll survive it myself, with the ongoing madness driving me crazy. Imagine suffering from madness and craziness at the same time. Enough to drive a gal insane!
