Francis Interview: “My Instinct and the Holy Spirit Guide Me”

He did nothing else but to continue the work of Benedict XVI, Francis said in a hagiographic interview with AdnKronos.com (October 30).

Benedict is for Francis “a father and a brother” and “holiness in person,” Francis visits him often, “There are no problems between us.”

He disclaims reports claiming that the two had been fighting over the same tomb.

For Francis, corruption is an old problem in the Church, “but the vast majority of the Church persues the right path.”

He believes that the Lord called him to do what he is doing, “Sincerely, I am not very optimistic (he smiles) but I trust in God and in men faithful to God.”

Intrestingly, Francis is only asked about criticisms referring to his famous statement about homosex-partnerships. Francis answers “that criticism can be constructive” (etc.).

He says that “my instinct and the Holy Spirit guide me.” And, “I pray, I pray a lot.”

Recalling a bishop telling him that the lockdown made people “lose the habit” to go to Church, Francis tells AdnKronos that if this people “came to Church out of habit then it is better that they stay at home.”

A good habit is called a virtue.

Yeah, but I doubt it's the Holy Spirit that is guiding him. Perhaps another spirit.

The Holy Spirit does NOT ever disagree with the Gospel of Christ, so it is NOT The Holy Spirit Whom you have chosen to submit to. Rogue Teachings are being broadcast from the See of Peter that do not have their origins in Roman Catholicism OR Traditional Judaism.

Francis, some people may believe your vain words, but Archbishop Carlo Vigano is the one preaching those unalterable Truths which Christ shared with us. You are an Apostate.

To be a TRUE Pope and NOT a fraud, you have to submit to The Deposit of Faith (depositum fidei) which as Catholics know is the body of revealed truth found within the Scriptures and Traditions of the 2000 year old Church.

You seem to wish to abrogate all 3 principal attributes of Traditional Catholicism, you create your own Magisterium, place demonic pagan false deities within Our Lord's Holy places. I doubt this letter will accomplish my goal, but those who follow and serve Our Lord realise that it is SATAN you are serving. Stay outside of the Church of Christ if you want to, but at least do it HONESTLY, without pretending that you are a Roman Catholic Pope . The Holy Spirit teaches/preaches no error as He is GOD, and BEING so, does not alter His opinions as to what is or is not SIN.

What we are hearing from you is Blasphemy! Spiritual Decadence will not lead souls to anywhere but Hell. May the TRUE Catholic Church emerge from the shadows and may your blind followers cease to believe the errors that you preach in the Name of the Holy Ghost.

Canon Law 751 states: " apostasy is the total repudiation of the Christian faith;" Francis, for all his errors, has not done this, therefore he is not an apostate -according to the Law of the Catholic Law.

If there are no "three principal attributes of Traditional Catholicism" listed as criteria for determining apostasy in Canon Law 751. Even Archbishop Vigano, as usual, doesn't dare openly …More

If there are no "three principal attributes of Traditional Catholicism" listed as criteria for determining apostasy in Canon Law 751. Even Archbishop Vigano, as usual, doesn't dare openly accuse the Pope. That would be -schism- under 751 and he knows it.

Instead it's the usual, "you seem to wish to" hedges. Either say "You ARE" and make the accusation formal or skip the double-talk. Miquoting the man, "but at least do it HONESTLY, without pretending to submit to the Supreme Pontiff."

@Caroline03 One thing you have to remember, just because Pope Francis says the Holy Spirit guides him, doesn't make it so. Ironically, his claims of continuing the work of Benedict XVI are probably closer to the truth than most casually-informed Catholics realize. Theologically speaking, Benedict's beliefs can be as... questionable... as Francis. BZVI's errors don't lend themselves to bold …More
@Caroline03 One thing you have to remember, just because Pope Francis says the Holy Spirit guides him, doesn't make it so.

Theologically speaking, Benedict's beliefs can be as... questionable... as Francis. BZVI's errors don't lend themselves to bold headlines lke " the pope says it's okay to be gay". They're complex, multilayered and every bit as ambiguously worded as Francis' "endorsements".

Ratzinger was one of the architects of Vatcan Council II. Francis is the end-product of that work -and, yes, he's definitely continuing it..

@Ultraviolet Ouch..... 😊

I don't submit to the teaching of a Pope who acts contrary to the Sacred Deposit of Faith - it's an error to say I pretend to submit to Francis when I've stated from the beginning that he is not subservient to the Sacred Magisterium and he clearly does not reflect or serve the TRUE Christ.

We are told that to deny ONE aspect of Church teaching is to step outside the Church. The sin of Sodom is one aspect = and he fails to abide by most others, though to be fair he visits the homeless, the housebound, etc...BUT, it could be a ruse professing himself to be more virtuous & innocent than Our Lord. Is it Christ's Name he visits them in - or the Luciferian false Christ who professes homosexuality to be ok then goes out ministering to the sick in his gods name? He extends his hand to homosexuals, but in not specifically advising them that it is a sin in the eyes of Christ he takes their hand only to assist them into Hell.

There again, he chooses to stack the upper Hierarchy with Gay LGBT etc.... type people (who all have the same pale, subservient appearance and are invariably "yes" men ) Why would an honest, virtuous professor of the RC faith do that? Perhaps the sins of the modern souls calling themselves "Roman Catholic" are so great that, as it states in Romans 1, they are blinded to the extent that they profess Heaven has sent a Leader to the RC Church who proclaims the complete ANTITHESIS of what the real Christ taught. Such people profess Lucifer to be Good, and the real Christ, in their blinkered eyes appears to be, as they are themselves EVIL.

Is he running the Church subservient to the same Puppet Master that rules over the Democrat Party? Is the none Latin Rite edifice (mistakenly called "The RC Church") ruled over by the Gay friendly "Lord" of the godless UN and EU? The New World Order aims to dis-establish the OLD Roman Catholic Order founded by Christ ie His RC Church.
Why would Christ's Pope wish for that to be achieved? Why would Christ form a Kingdom for His Pope to Govern over, in a Prime-Ministerial Capacity - and then seek to replace that Old Order with a new none-Roman Catholic New Set of Laws? The enemy ruling over Francis, is the same enemy that murdered the majority of the Catholic Rulers within the last 200 years. Those RC Kings and Emperors who submitted to the POPE - in the Old tried and tested Order. Who plotted their dis-establishment, rooted in Envy! Jealousy! Resentment? Those ungodless revelled in the sins of Cain who resented Able for offering a more perfect Sacrifice and God for professing how He wished His Kingdom on earth to be Governed. ..

I was researching the 3rd Secret on YOUTUBE, and found this on a channel professing the Cardinal Siri theory. However, there is no mention of the Cardinal Siri Thesis on the video.

In the "Siri thesis" they profess that leaked documents stated that Cardinal Siri was elected in 1958 (It is known that Pope Pius XII wished Cardinal Siri to succeed him) Within the leaked information, Cardinal Siri was elected Pope, and then threatened in some way, which led to his resignation. Since that resignation was under duress, the theory concludes it to be canonically invalid therefore the Holy Spirit remains with the former Pope. Meanwhile, those who bullied him out of his See, DELIBERATELY elected afterwards a known false Pope so they could lay their hands on the Church

Cardinal Siri remained silent about his election allegedly, ,( Fr Malachi Martin said he HAD been elected and there were two distinct outpourings of white smoke at the 1958 Conclave signifying the election of two Popes. Cdl Roncalli deliberately took the name of a former anti-Pope.

The whole situation has repeated itself with Pope Benedict. Cardinal Siri (Pope Gregory XVII?) gave full allegiance to John XXIII, Paul VI, JPI, JPII until his own death in the 1990's. After the resignation of Pope Benedict he professes total obedience also to Francis.

In the video, what it announces is that Priests who are removing the Latin Mass must not be followed . To remove the latin Mass is in violation of a formally binding document "Quo Primum Tempore" 1570

Why are Church Members not concerned that "Postquam Verus Cardinals " stated in 1586 that there must NEVER be any more than 70 Cardinals elected? It decrees that any Cardinals elected in surplus of 70 are null and void. It is a matter of perplexion to us that no-one is concerned that Magisterial Documents are being treated as though they are worth no more than the paper they are written on. In not professing our concern we ARE following the lead of Francis whether we want to or not! If we pretend that he is not bound by either "Quo Primum" or "Postquam Verus" we are duly submitting to a new ruling that has hitherto put people outside of the Official Church.

Fr Hesse mentioned much of what I say during his talks. God Bless

No ouches at all. @Caroline03 I'm not cricizing you or even your position. That's the beautiful part of Canon Law 751.

No ouches at all. @Caroline03 I'm not cricizing you or even your position. That's the beautiful part of Canon Law 751.

You don't HAVE to submit to the Supreme Pontiff's teachings. Only to the Supreme Pontiff. In practical terms, so long as you recognize and acknowledge he -is- the Supreme Pontiff (i.e head of the Church), then you have fulfilled the requirement in that you are not contesting his lawful authority, i.e. you are submitting to it..

His -teachings- are a different matter. The same is true for his endorsements, his views, his opinions, his preferences and so on.

So long as they are not formally delivered as the Head of The Catholic Church under the auspices of Papal Infallibility, then they are not technically binding.

NONE of these latest errors are.

Pope Franics has, simply put, just been sharing his opinion and it's contrary to the teachings of the Church. Ignore it as you please. Benedict did the same and, in truth, worse because he was erudite and presented his views far more persuasively and to a more shchoarly audience.

Submission and pretense are two different things. Since submission is not legally defined in Canon Law, it's open to interpretation. Francis is the Supreme Pontiff, he's currently expressing his opinions, his opinions are contrary to the Church, but they aren't binding. . So were JP II's opinion on Islam.

Your writing isn't a mess and, in truth, you aren't a Catholic Archbishop known for his scholary criticisms.

Archbisho Vigano, however, is both and he always uses these hedges to say what he wants to without actually coming out in open defiance. That's how pretense works.

"We are told that to deny ONE aspect of Church teaching is to step outside the Church."

As I've said elsewhere, Benedict XVI did and so did JP II. Yet for all that, somehow JP II was still able to posthumously intercede with God for miracles. It's difficult to reconcile him being outside the Church and still a saint with at least two verified miracles to his credit.

What the situation teaches me is popes and even saints may err and they still remain popes and saints.

As I've told others in far less congenial circumstances than our conversation here, Pope Francis chooses "yes men" but they're marxist yes-men. Homosexuality is one of many, many tools they use to destroy Western society. They're just as enthusiastic over illegal immigration and, in Francis' case, climate change.

It's getting kinda chilly now in Europe, where I live has already seen half a foot of snow. Climate change activists are like crickets: they're loud in the summer and die off in the fall. Next spring, we'll see more of Francis and Greta Thunberg.

"Heaven has sent a Leader to the RC Church who proclaims the complete ANTITHESIS of what the real Christ taught."

Francis isn't the first. In terms of theology, we've had a long bad run of Church Leaders doing just that since Vatican Council II, in one form or another.

"The New World Order aims to dis-establish the OLD Roman Catholic Order founded by Christ ie His RC Church."

Don't worry about that. Truly. I hereby formally predict as GTV's Official Self-Appointed Seer: -That Will Never Happpen.

Not only relying on the promises of Christ, but also of my own first-hand experience with Traditionalist clergy. They are masters of remaining in full communion with the Church and yet, remaining true to Christ.

.I can answer your "why" questions fairly easily, since they all stem from the same basic one. Why does God allow evil in the world? He allows it because he allows humanity free-will. The leadership of His Church is human and therefore also subject to this dictum.

There have been many, many bad popes in history. Some founded dynastic families of "popes" one after the other. We're fortunate not to be living in such times. In the meantime, this is when our Catholic Faith in TRULY accepting God's Will gets tested, even if the trial is unpleasant.

When caught that’s the narrative, ie, following immediate previous Popes or immediate previous Popes made “similar errors”.
