Does Pope Francis need to go to confession for the awful Mortal sin of Omission before he takes communion or celebrates mass again and make a public announcement of this specific sin repent and ask forgiveness . Catholics all over the middle east and Africa are murdered ironically by the same type of death as these 15th century martyrs he honors. Pope Francis cares more about Appearing holy and righteous than actually being holy and righteous? Pomp and ceremony have replaced compassion and action. It takes courage to face evil this Pope prefers to ignore it. The Catholic Church has become it seem’s as St Paul say’s a white-washed wall Acts 23:1-10 . So while The Pope honors 15th century catholic martyrs beheaded by wicked Muslims we are faced with the equally horrific present day persecuted by wicked Muslim’s. The response to the Plight of his flock is He does nothing and says nothing out of human respect, Afraid he may break diplomatic relations with Islam by pointing out the truth. the Irony of this can not be understated. Perhaps someone should tell him God is not a respecter of persons and we are not called to respect other faiths. We are called to evangelize, spread the gospel and support our brethren in Christ Jesus.
Faith Without Works Is Dead James 2:14-17
14 What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? 17 Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.
Spiritually Dead(James 2:14-17) cowardly Hypocrite Pope Francis honored by his cardinals while he refuses to lift a finger to help or highlight the unprecedented Modern persecution of living Catholic and Christians Saints . Instead he is calling for us to respect Islam.
I saw that the woman was drunk with the blood of God’s holy people, the blood of those who bore testimony to Jesus. When I saw her, I was greatly astonished.
VATICAN CITY (AP) – Pope Francis on Sunday gave the Catholic church new saints, including hundreds of 15th-century martyrs who were beheaded for refusing to convert to Islam, as he led his first canonization ceremony Sunday in a packed St. Peter’s Square.
The “Martyrs of Otranto” were 813 Italians who were slain in the southern Italian city in 1480 for defying demands by Turkish invaders who overran the citadel to renounce Christianity.
Their approval for sainthood was decided upon by Francis’ predecessor, Benedict XVI, in a decree read at the ceremony in February where the former pontiff announced his retirement.
Shortly after his election in March, Francis called for more dialogue with Islam, and it was unclear how the granting of sainthood to the martyrs would be received. Islam is a sensitive subject for the church, and Benedict stumbled significantly in his relations with Muslims.
The first pontiff from South America also gave Colombia its first saint: a nun who toiled as a teacher and spiritual guide to indigenous people in the 20th century.
With Colombia’s President Juan Manuel Santos among the VIPS, the Argentine pope held out Laura of St. Catherine of Siena Montoya y Upegui as a potential source of inspiration to the country’s peace process, attempted after decades-long conflict between rebels and government forces.
Francis prayed that “Colombia’s beloved children continue to work for peace and just development of the country.”
He also canonized another Latin American woman. Maria Guadalupe Garcia Zavala, a Mexican who dedicated herself to nursing the sick, helped Catholics avoid persecution during a government crackdown of the faith in the 1920s.
Also known as Mother Lupita, she hid the Guadalajara archbishop in an eye clinic for more than a year after fearful local Catholic families refused to shelter him.
Francis prayed that the new Mexican saint’s intercession could Help the nation “eradicate all the violence and insecurity,” an apparent reference to years of bloodshed and other crime largely linked to powerful drug trafficking clans.
Francis told the crowd that the martyrs are a source of inspiration, especially for “so many Christians, who, right in these times and in so many parts of the world, still suffer violence.” He prayed that they receive “the courage of loyalty and to respond to evil with good.” more
