Antipope Francis on Non-Catholic "Saints and Martyrs" - By Bro. Peter Dimond_________________________________________________
"On December 14th, 2013, La Stampa published an interview that antipope Francis gave to the journalist, Andrea Tornielli.
In that interview antipope Francis teaches another massive heresy in addition to making numerous scandalous statements.
Francis discusses "ecumenism" with Anglicans, Lutherans and the so-called Orthodox.
He clearly teaches the condemned heresy that there are non-Catholic Saints and Martyrs. In fact, he even promotes the idea that a Lutheran "pastor" could be advanced to beatification.
Francis says that ... "Today there is an ecumenism of blood ... whether people are Anglican, Lutheran, Catholic or Orthodox."
Concerning the various groups, he says, "We are united in blood." He then says, "I know a parish priest in Hamburg who was dealing with the beatification cause of a Catholic priest guillotined by the Nazis for teaching children catechism. After him in the list of condemned individuals was a Lutheran pastor who was killed for the same reason. Their blood was mixed. The parish priest told me he had gone to the bishop and said to him: "I will continue to deal with the cause, but both of their causes, not just the Catholic priests. This is what ecumenism of blood is..."
Notice that Francis endorses and promotes the idea that a Lutheran who is killed could be advanced to "beatification." This is formal heresy.
Nothing could more clearly deny the solemnly defined Catholic dogma that ... "The Holy Roman Church firmly believes, professes and preaches that all those who are outside the Catholic Church, not only pagans but also Jews or heretics and schismatics cannot share in eternal life and will go into the everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels, unless they are joined to the Church before the end of their lives, and that no one, whatsoever almsgiving he has practiced, even if he has shed blood for the name of Christ, can be saved, unless he has remained within the bosom and unity of the Catholic Church." - Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, 1441, ex cathedra.
Pope Eugene IV on the necessity of belonging to the Catholic Church for Salvation
Pope Pelagius II declared the same in 585, a truth that has always been taught in the Church: "Those who were not willing to be at agreement in the Church of God, cannot remain with God; although given over to flames and the fire, they burn, or thrown to wild beasts, they lay down their lives, there will not be for them that crown of faith, but the punishment of faithlessness, not a glorious result (of religious virtue), but the ruin of despair. Such a one can be slain; he cannot be crowned." Pope Pelagius II, Dilectionis Vestrae, 585
Francis is a formal heretic and an antipope.
In the interview, Francis also makes it clear, once again, that he fully accepts the schismatic "Orthodox." The Orthodox reject the papacy and other Catholic dogmas. Francis even calls Orthodox schismatic Tawadros, the leader of the Coptic schismatics, a mystic . Tawadros is a public heretic who leads a large group of individuals who dissert from Catholic teaching.
Tawadros the schismatic "Orthodox"
Francis has also rejected the necessity for Orthodox schismatics, like Tawadros to convert.
In the interview, Francis also declares: "... But I have met many Marxists in my life who are good people."
The idea that Marxists are 'good people' is directly contrary to Catholic teaching. Francis' statement is outrageous.
Francis is also asked about remarried divorcees receiving "communion." He doesn't rule it out even though he was given numerous opportunities to do so.
Speaking of God, Francis also says: "He waits for us; he never tires of waiting for us."
Actually, God does tire of waiting for people, that's why He condemns most people to Hell. - Matthew 7:13
Most people are condemned to Hell
Francis is a manifest heretic. According to Catholic Papal teaching a heretic cannot be a valid pope. Francis is an antipope.
