Jorge Bergoglio, aka "Pope" Francis is (literally) hell-bent on proving the alleged truth, goodness and beauty of Vatican Council II, which chased the True Church underground and set up a false Modernist sect in the once holy dwellings of Catholicism. This year Bergoglio will "waive" any further requirements to "canonize" Antipope John XXIII (Angelo Roncalli) and Antipope John Paul II (Karol Wotyla). His reason is evident: Anyone who promotes the Modernist heresy of the Council must become a "saint." From 1563-1958, the True Church canonized two popes (Pius V and Pius X), and beatified one pope (Innocent XI). Since its beginning in 1958, the Vatican II sect has six antipopes, two of whom (Benedict XVI and Francis) are alive. Of the remaining four, two will be "saints" and one (Paul VI) is close to "beatification." Can Antipope John Paul I be far behind?
In a previous post, I railed against the idea of Wotyla (JPII) being a "saint" and I will now present the objections to Roncalli (John XXIII). Canonizations are infallible decrees:
Assertion 5: The Church's infallibility extends to the canonization of saints. This is the common opinion today.
Canonization (formal) is the final and definitive decree by which the sovereign pontiff declares that someone has been admitted to heaven and is to be venerated by everyone, at least in the sense that all the faithful are held to consider the person a saint worthy of public veneration. It differs from beatification, which is a provisional rather than a definitive decree, by which veneration is only permitted, or at least is not universally prescribed. Infallibility is claimed for canonization only; a decree of beatification, which in the eyes of the Church is not definitive but may still be rescinded, is to be considered morally certain indeed, but not infallible. Still, there are some theologians who take a different view of the matter.
1. From the solid conviction of the Church. When the popes canonize, they use terminology which makes it quite evident that they consider decrees of canonization infallible. Here is, in sum, the formula they use: “By the authority of our Lord Jesus Christ and of the apostles Peter and Paul and by our own authority, we declare that N. has been admitted to heaven, and we decree and define that he is to be venerated in public and in private as a saint.”
2. From the purpose of infallibility. The Church is infallible so that it may be a trustworthy teacher of the Christian religion and of the Christian way of life. But it would not be such if it could err in the canonization of saints. Would not religion be sullied if a person in hell were, by a definitive decree, offered to everyone as an object of religious veneration? Would not the moral law be at least weakened to some extent, if a protégé of the devil could be irrevocably set up as a model of virtue for all to imitate and for all to invoke? But it cannot be inferred: therefore the Church must also be infallible in authenticating the relics of the saints; for (a) the Church never issues so solemn a decree about relics; and (b) the cases are not parallel, for in the case of relics, it is a question of relative cult, while in that of the saints it is one of absolute cult.
(Mgr. G. Van Noort, Dogmatic Theology 2: Christ's Church [Westminster, MD: Newman Press, 1957], pp. 117-118.)
After you consider the fact about Roncalli ask yourself, "Could the True Church infallibly declare such a man a saint"? If your answer is in the negative, then "Pope" Francis is not the infallible head of the One True Church, but the heretical antipope of a false sect.
Angelo Roncalli (John XXIII):
- Born in 1881 and ordained in 1904, he became involved with socialist societies as early as 1913 and signed a petition urging civil violence against civil authority and members of the Catholic Church (see Arade, Zsolt Pope John XXIII, Pgs. 38-40)
- Relieved of a teaching post in 1924 being suspected of Modernism
- The Magazine 30 Days also held an interview several years ago with the head of the Italian Freemasons. The Grand Master of the Grand Orient of Italy stated: “As for that, it seems that John XXIII was initiated (into a Masonic Lodge) in Paris and participated in the work of the Istanbul Workshops.”
- When John XXIII was later “elevated” to the College of Cardinals, he insisted upon receiving the red hat from the atheist and notoriously anti-clerical socialist Vincent Auriol, President of the country of France, whom he had described as "an honest socialist."Roncalli knelt before Auriol, and Auriol placed the cardinal’s biretta on Roncalli’s head. Auriol then hung a “broad red ribbon around the cardinal’s neck embracing him on each cheek with a little bear-hug that imparted personal warmth to formal protocol.” Auriol had to wipe away his tears with a handkerchief when Roncalli left to assume his new dignity as “cardinal.” At social functions in Paris, Roncalli (John XXIII) was also frequently seen socializing with the Soviet ambassador, M. Bogomolov, even though Bogomolov's government had resumed its prewar policy of brutal extermination of Catholics in Russia.
- He gave a Moslem a "blessing" in which he suppressed the invocation of the Most Holy Trinity so as not to "offend" the infidel
- On July 18, 1959, John XXIII suppressed the following prayer: "Be Thou King of all those who are still involved in the darkness of idolatry or Islam." In his Apostolic Brief on October 17, 1925, Pope Pius XI ordered that this prayer be publicly recited on the feast of Christ the King. John XXIII removed from the Calendar of Saints the Fourteen Holy Helpers and a number of other saints, including St. Philomena.
- John XXIII also changed the rubrics for the Breviary and Missal. He ordered the suppression of the Leonine Prayers, the prayers prescribed by Pope Leo XIII to be recited after Mass. These prayers were also prescribed by Pope St. Pius X and Pope Pius XI. This included the Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel, a prayer that specifically makes mention of the battle that the Church wages against the Devil. John XXIII removed the Psalm Judica me from the Mass. John XXIII then suppressed the Last Gospel, the Gospel of St. John. This Gospel is also used in exorcisms. Next, John XXIII eliminated the second Confiteor in the Mass. Only after all these changes did he introduce a change into the Canon of the Mass by inserting the name of St. Joseph. The request to have St. Joseph’s name placed in the canon was officially rejected by Pope Pius VII on September 16, 1815,and by Pope Leo XIII on August 15, 1892.
- John XXIII, Pacem in terris #14, April 11, 1963: “Also among man’s rights is that of being able to worship God in accordance with the right dictates of his own conscience, and to profess his religion both in private and in public.” Compare with Pope Gregory XVI encyclical Mirari Vos:
13. Now We consider another abundant source of the evils with which the Church is afflicted at present: indifferentism. This perverse opinion is spread on all sides by the fraud of the wicked who claim that it is possible to obtain the eternal salvation of the soul by the profession of any kind of religion, as long as morality is maintained. Surely, in so clear a matter, you will drive this deadly error far from the people committed to your care. With the admonition of the apostle that "there is one God, one faith, one baptism" may those fear who contrive the notion that the safe harbor of salvation is open to persons of any religion whatever. They should consider the testimony of Christ Himself that "those who are not with Christ are against Him," and that they disperse unhappily who do not gather with Him. Therefore "without a doubt, they will perish forever, unless they hold the Catholic faith whole and inviolate." Let them hear Jerome who, while the Church was torn into three parts by schism, tells us that whenever someone tried to persuade him to join his group he always exclaimed: "He who is for the See of Peter is for me." A schismatic flatters himself falsely if he asserts that he, too, has been washed in the waters of regeneration. Indeed Augustine would reply to such a man: "The branch has the same form when it has been cut off from the vine; but of what profit for it is the form, if it does not live from the root?"
14. This shameful font of indifferentism gives rise to that absurd and erroneous proposition which claims that liberty of conscience must be maintained for everyone. It spreads ruin in sacred and civil affairs, though some repeat over and over again with the greatest impudence that some advantage accrues to religion from it. "But the death of the soul is worse than freedom of error," as Augustine was wont to say. When all restraints are removed by which men are kept on the narrow path of truth, their nature, which is already inclined to evil, propels them to ruin. Then truly "the bottomless pit" is open from which John saw smoke ascending which obscured the sun, and out of which locusts flew forth to devastate the earth. Thence comes transformation of minds, corruption of youths, contempt of sacred things and holy laws -- in other words, a pestilence more deadly to the state than any other. Experience shows, even from earliest times, that cities renowned for wealth, dominion, and glory perished as a result of this single evil, namely immoderate freedom of opinion, license of free speech, and desire for novelty.
- When he died, Roncalli was praised by Freemasons thus:
THE MEXICAN WESTERN GRAND LODGE
of free and accepted Masons,
at the death of
POPE JOHN XXIII
Publicly expresses its sorrow for the loss of this great man, who made a revolution in the ideas, thoughts and forms of the Roman Catholic liturgy.
THE ENCYCLICALS "MOTHER AND TEACHER" and "PEACE ON EARTH"
Made a revolution in concepts favoring
THE RIGHTS OF MAN AND HIS LIBERTY
Mankind has lost a great man, and we
the Freemasons recognize his elevated principles, his humanitarianism and his condition as a GRAND LIBERAL.
Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico, June 3, 1963

- He convoked Vatican II in 1959, to begin in 1962 and was the biggest boost the Modernists had helping them against the orthodox Catholic prelates led by the truly saintly Cardinal Ottavianni.
