Pope Francis “Destroying the Foundations of Faith and Morals” – Professor Seifert… & So Say All of Us!editor
Francis is destroying the foundations of faith and morals, writes Austrian philosopher Josef Seifert, who currently teaches at Munich University, in an Open Letter to the Cardinals sent on 2 May (English text below).
Seifert does not understand how all the cardinals except the Dubia cardinals simply remain silent on the problem of Francis. Seifert’s examples:
– his assertion that God positively wills the diversity of religions (Abu Dhabi Declaration);
– his support of homosex concubinates;
– his denial of the existence of acts that are always and everywhere evil, e.g. adultery (Amoris Laetitia);
– his false teaching on the death penalty (CCC);
– his claim that hell is empty;
– his claim that the souls of mortal sinners are “destroyed” after death (also claimed by Jehovah’s Witnesses).
“As far as I know, there has never been a pope in Church history who has claimed similar monstrosities,” Seifert explains. He would expect that all cardinals would write to Francis like one man and demand that he retract the apostate Abu Dhabi Declaration.
In reality, they do not defend the faith, but silence critics, Seifert adds. To read more, including Open Letter to the Cardinals, click here
It is of the utmost importance that Professor Seifert highlights the negligence of the Cardinals in dealing with the errors, heresies and apostasy of this pontiff. Even the “dubia” cardinals – as he notes – did not fulfil their warning/promise to act if Francis ignored their questions (dubia). It is a puzzle, indeed, that they fail to act in the face of the worsening papal words and behaviour. Your thoughts…

When is schism appropriate and lawful (Canon Law)?
If we are in such a circumstance who has the position and courage to lead us back to the true path?
Schism is never appropriate or lawful in Canon Law, to the best of my knowledge.
I think you are really asking who has the authority to take over from a pope, and to the best of my understanding nobody can do that.
I think what the Professor is saying is that the cardinals should be confronting him with his errors and insisting that he change his way, maybe publicly retract them.
I think you are right – that is my understanding as well, there are saints’ writings which lay out the rules and that nobody on earth can depose a pope. It’s a pity, in our case, LOL!
We need to pray the prayer to St Michael every day. I cannot understand why it was ever dropped after Mass. who thought that was a good idea? Someone demonic I believe.
Schism is a grave sin which carries automatic excommunication, so can never be appropriate or lawful. Resistance to abuses coming from legitimate authority is a completely different matter. I’m sure Prof Seifert wasn’t advocating schism. As he points out, St Paul resisted St Peter, and St Catherine of Siena resisted two Popes, but they were not in schism.
“Schism is a grave sin which carries automatic excommunication…”
Can I quote this? Do you have a traditional Catholic source ?
A brilliant document. Well said Professor Seifert. Now buy yourself a flak jacket and go into hiding . . . do you know, I had to laugh – the SSPX consecrated their biggest church in the world yesterday, and all Pope Francis could ask was “Where do they have so much money from?” That is SO typical. All the modernists are interested in is the money. https://gloria.tv/post/eTR1S3Y9z9gr3mgi97zYYeJmk
LOL! So typical, as you say!
That’s some achievement for the SSPX – amazing!
That’s why the Vatican has been wooing the SSPX since 2000. As I’ve posted on other threads and forums, the SSPX has dedicated bishops, priests, religious and laity who generously give their time, talents and treasure (read: $$$/£££) which doesn’t go into diocesan coffers nor Peter’s Pence.
As Deep Throat said: “Follow the money.”
The Bishops and Cardinals have been being brainwashed for years and this Pope’s ill starred ways and evil thoughts just don’t sink in as far as they should. Just my thoughts. I don’t understand why some Cardinals and Bishops do not get together and demand a ‘meeting’ with the Pope. Some of them have retained some sanity. It seems they would have a right to do that. Get some kind of a concession out of the man or put the fear of God in him. Doubt if he has any of that right now however as he sits in the worldly temple of evil hoping to be the boss. Threaten him with SOMETHING ! Surely they could come up with the right stuff. I am so discouraged.
I totally agree. It’s incredible that the cardinals are so silent while this pope destroys the Church.
I get discouraged, too, but we need to fight that or the devil wins.
M.Mary first surely for one to have the Fear of God one must first believe in God. That this worst Pope in History has gone into a Mosk is Diabolical.
Am sure that I speak for all on Here that I would NEVER enter even into the Grounds of such an Ungodly place as a Mosk.
I also certainly would not want any of my Family entering into one either, even the ones who have given up on their Catholic Faith. At Mass last Night it was St Monica’s Feast Day and we all know the Prayers She said for Her Son now Dr of the Catholic Church St Augustine. I wonder what St Augustine would think of a Pope even going into a Mosk. Would He want Him excommunicated ? Ad like to know what others think.
Faith of Our Fathers,
I have been in a mosque, Sikh temple and Hindu temple. I didn’t take part in any religious ceremony and I had a good reason for being there.
I would imagine your presence was for Building Regs. I maybe was to bold with my Comment.
So I speak for Myself.
I would NEVER go into a Mosk not even for a winning Lottery Ticket .
Even the the very sound and reading of the name gives me the creeps. Which is why I always call them Mosks.
As for the Schism thing. Surely a Pope such as this is in Schism Himself especially when He says that Islam Etc be taught in Catholic Seminaries. Definitely a case for Excommunication by His Cardinals. If of course even one in Rome were like St Thomas More.
Francis is like Henry 8th surrounded by a bunch of swish Yes Men . Most of whom would make Thomas Cromwell look like a good Catholic. Arthur Roche comes to mind at least for that role.
Yes, I do believe that he is under the influence of the devil. Never in history have we had a Pope like this that I know of. It tears one up to see that nothing is being done. We will have to do it. The ‘Sense of the Faithful’ Perhaps some Cardinals and Bishops are doing something under the table. There are a few speaking out now. Maybe that will give courage to more. We will have to pray and fast like there was no tomorrow.
N O T I C E . . .
Please pray for the soul of Ronald J. MacDonald (Ronnie), a good friend of this apostolate, who passed away around 7pm this evening.
May he rest in peace.
Oh I remember Ronnie from the old days. May he rest in peace.
He died on +Fr. Nicholas Gruner’s birthday. Fr. Gruner would have been 81 today (it’s still 4 May here in PA!).
In Your abode, O Lord, where all Your Saints repose, grant rest to the souls of Your servants, for You alone love mankind.
Blessed repose and eternal memory!
What sad news, but thank you for sharing it.
May Ronnie rest in peace.
“Pope Francis has already signed a letter of resignation from his office to take effect in the event of a significant deterioration in his health…”
Very interesting. How about another resignation letter, Pope Francis, to take effect immediately due to a significant deterioration of your faith (understatement of the century), and also of the Church for which you are responsible?
A dime to a dollar says he won’t resign.
From the Universal Declaration of Human Rights
Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.
My question is, if the Archbishop of Glasgow decides to break up a community using the traditional Latin Mass is he breaking the Declaration of Human Rights.
Looks like he is doing that. I think he should be resisted.
Can’t see how he could defend his actions.
He would simply answer that having provided an alternative church for the Mass, namely St. Brigid’s in Toryglen, he was catering for Traditional Catholics to practice their faith. These people have it all covered.
Yes Athanasius he’s has left the Toryglen option.
But the United nations don’t mention Toryglen… or any other Glen
They specifically state…”freedom… alone or in community in public or private” they don’t add( in brackets Toryglen)
Any day of the week there are nuisances shouting about God loving us in the town centre of Carlisle, as far as I can see these nuisances do more harm to religion than good. But they must be protected otherwise people would be pelting them with rotten 🍅 🍅 🍅 🍅 🍅 🍅 tomatoes, so they are left alone to howl all day long.
If someone were to stand up to Archbishop Nolan I bet he’d crumble. I’m told that if you pay money to a person or organisation then you are entitled to the services offered by that organisation. The Congregation at Balornock have been most generous in giving to the church as far as I can see, therefore they are entitled to the services they have been paying for, that is natural law…the most basic form of law there is.
I’m sure there are other laws that could be appealed to, I bet Archbishop Nolan won’t be looking forward to his “day in court”…. he’ll look even more like the pettifogging fool than he is now.
