"Salus Animarum Est Suprema Lex"--(The salvation of souls is the supreme law). At least this is the case in the True Church. The Vatican II sect of Antipope Francis is putting ecumenism on steroids. Instead of leading souls to the Truth, Mr. Bergoglio, an apostate himself, sends people outside of his counterfeit Catholicism and wants them to stay there! As long as you're not a Traditionalist in the Truth, then stay as you are in a One World Religion where you only have to look at Bergoglio as a "first among equals." Let's just get along and have peace! Two powerful stories brought that point home this week.
- MOSLEM CONVERT LEAVES VATICAN II SECT
VATICAN CITY -- A high-profile Italian Muslim who converted to Catholicism and was baptized by Pope Benedict XVI announced on Monday that he will leave the church to protest its soft stance against Islam.
Egyptian-born Magdi Cristiano Allam, 61, a prominent journalist and outspoken critic of Islam, publicly entered the Catholic Church on March 22, 2008, during an Easter Vigil service, receiving baptism directly from Benedict.
After his conversion, Allam founded a small right-wing political party that lost badly in Italy's general elections last April.
Writing on Monday in the right-wing daily Il Giornale, Allam explained that he considers his conversion to Catholicism finished "in combination with the end of (Benedict's) pontificate."
"The'papolatry' that has inflamed the euphoria for Francis I and has quickly archived Benedict XVI was the last straw in an overall framework of uncertainty and doubts about the Church," he wrote.
On Friday, Francis pledged to "intensify dialogue among the various religions," particularly Islam.
Allam, who has called Islam an "intrinsically violent ideology," said his main reason for leaving the church was its perceived "religious relativism, in particular the legitimization of Islam as a true religion."
"Europe will end up being subjugated to Islam," he warned in Il Giornale, unless it "finds the courage to denounce Islam as incompatible with our civilization and fundamental human rights," and to "banish the Quran for inciting hatred, violence and death towards non-Muslims." Europeans also need to "condemn Sharia as a crime against humanity" and to "stop the spread of mosques."
Allam said he would remain a Christian but that he didn't "believe in the church anymore."
Allam's surprise conversion was orchestrated by Archbishop Rino Fisichella, currently head of the Pontifical Council for the New Evangelization, who "personally accompanied" the Muslim intellectual's approach to the Catholic faith.
At the time, the Vatican's chief spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, stressed that the conversion was the result of Allam's "personal journey" and was not intended as a direct message to Muslims.
A leading Muslim intellectual involved in interfaith dialogue with the Vatican, Aref Ali Nayed, criticized the public conversion ceremony as a "triumphalist way to score points," and said it raised "serious doubts" about the Catholic Church's policy toward Islam.
What can we expect when Vatican II teaches "The Church regards with esteem also the Muslims. They adore the one God, living and subsisting in himself; merciful and all-powerful, the Creator of heaven and earth, who has spoken to men; they take pains to submit wholeheartedly to even his inscrutable decrees, just as Abraham, with whom the faith of Islam takes pleasure in linking itself, submitted to God". (Nostra Aetate 3)
Compare with the teaching of the True Catholic Church: Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence (ex-Cathedra and infallible):
“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; that the unity of this ecclesiastical body is of such importance that only for those who abide in it do the Church’s sacraments contribute to salvation and do fasts, almsgiving and other works of piety and practices of the Christian militia produce eternal rewards; and that nobody can be saved, no matter how much he has given away in alms and even if he has shed blood in the name of Christ, unless he has persevered in the bosom and unity of the Catholic Church” (“Cantate Domino,” 1441) Emphasis mine.2. BERGOGLIO SENDS WELL WISHES TO THE ARCHLAYMAN OF CANTERBURY
From RNS: Pope Francis today sent a message to the new Archbishop of Canterbury on the occasion of Dr. Justin Welby's enthronement at Canterbury Cathedral. Below, please find the full text of Pope Francis' greetings to Archbishop Justin Welby of Canterbury: To the Most Reverend and Right Honourable
Archbishop of Canterbury
"May grace and peace be multiplied to you" (1 Pet 1:2b)
I thank you for the kind words contained in your message to me at my election, and I wish in turn to offer my greetings and best wishes on the occasion of your Enthronement at Canterbury Cathedral.
The pastoral ministry is a call to walk in fidelity to the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. Please be assured of my prayers as you take up your new responsibilities, and I ask you to pray for me as I respond to the new call that the Lord has addressed to me.
I look forward to meeting you in the near future, and to continuing the warm fraternal relations that our predecessors enjoyed.
From the Vatican, 18 March 2013
Ironically, both Bergoglio and Welby are neither valid priests or bishops. The new rite of Montini is invalid on the same grounds as Anglican Orders which were declared "absolutely null and utterly void" by Pope Leo XIII in his Apostolic Constitution "Apostolicae Curae" of 1896. Yet not only does he regognize him and refer to him as a "bishop", he wants him to "walk in fidelity to the Gospel of Our lord Jesus Christ" while remaining a heretic and outside the Church! Again the True Church says,
"But God forbid that the sons of the Catholic Church ever in any way be hostile to those who are not joined with us in the same bonds of faith and love; but rather they should always be zealous to seek them out and aid them, whether poor, or sick, or afflicted with any other burdens, with all the offices of Christian charity; and they should especially endeavor to snatch them from the darkness of error in which they unhappily lie, and lead them back to Catholic truth and to the most loving Mother the Church, who never ceases to stretch out her maternal hands lovingly to them, and to call them back to her bosom so that, established and firm in faith, hope, and charity, and 'being fruitful in every good work' [Colossians 1:10], they may attain eternal salvation."
--Pope Pius IX, Encyclical Quanto Conficiamur Moerore, par. 9, August 10, 1863 (Denzinger 1678)
Ecumenist heretics like Mr. Bergoglio, want us to all "get along" and not let little things like absolute Truth get in the way of making nice. True Charity is in conversion to the absolute Truth. Antipope Francis says we "need Anglicans to stay Anglicans" (!) as if the missionary martyrs died for nothing, and an implict denial of the dogma "extra ecclesiam nulla salus est" (Outside the Church there is no salvation). There can be no True and lasting peace (let alone SALVATION) except in the Truth of the One True Church of Christ. So the next time Bergoglio wants us to "all get along", let's remind him that we Traditionalists can't do that. Because the King we follow isn't named Rodney; He's Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace and Truth Incarnate.
