“Stop Accusing, Accusing, Accusing the Church” - Pope Francis

"Good morning!" - Pope Francis told 2.500 pilgrims from Benevento Archdiocese during a special audience for them on February 20.

Talking about Padre Pio who hails from Benevento area, Francis pointed out that this saint did "love the Church as it was, he didn't destroy it with his tongue as it's fashionable to do now."

Francis added that “one cannot live a whole life accusing, accusing, accusing the Church” pointing out that the devil was "the great accuser".

Those who spend their lives accusing, Pope Francis called "friends, cousins and relatives of the devil."

Nevertheless Pope Francis has highly commended the anti-Catholic journalist Eugenio Scalfari and Church hater Emma Bonino who are among the most notorious Church bashers in Italy's history.

I guess you didn't read any of the VII documents Bergoglio where it states the laity will take a more active role in the Church. We are obligated to correct heretical statements from your office while at the same time recognize your athority as pope and offer prayers for your conversion. Call it an accusation, correction, challege whatever. Someone has to do it.

Pope Francis: The abuse scandal was caused by clericalism.

Also Pope Francis: Who accuses me of cover up is the Devil's Cousins, Friends, relatives.

Only from the mouth of Pope Francis. Unsurprisingly, the media found nothing newsworthy in comments that seem to suggest Catholics should "love the Church as it was" even when it harbors pedophile priests, and its leaders advance causes antithetical to Catholic teachings.

As a minor correction to His Holiness, we the faithful have no power whatsoever. Not unless one counts the power of the purse, something with which he is only too familiar and may, in fact, owe his papacy.

Here is Francis, confusing everyone again. It's YOU, who loathes the Traditions. It's YOU who can't wait to tear up the Sacred Magesterium and rebuild it in a style that Lucifer has been hoping will be done for 2000 odd years! So with whom are you comparing St Padre Pio? He knew that God's Laws must be submitted to, and aped the Canonised Saints to ensure he made the grade. Day by day, year by …More
Here is Francis, confusing everyone again. It's YOU, who loathes the Traditions. It's YOU who can't wait to tear up the Sacred Magesterium and rebuild it in a style that Lucifer has been hoping will be done for 2000 odd years! So with whom are you comparing St Padre Pio? He knew that God's Laws must be submitted to, and aped the Canonised Saints to ensure he made the grade. Day by day, year by year, he submitted to the authoritative teaching of the Church as it had been handed down to him through countless generations.. HE'S a Canonised Saint because of it!

Guess what.....we're living at a time when Even Pope BORGIA looks good in retrospect - because for all his personal sins, (if he had them.......they're not sure anymore. They say we've probably been unjustly accusing him as it has been a black legend or something mean like that- Blimmin Protestants!) - Yet countless years on, it is clear that Pope Borgia heldfast to the Traditions, respected all that had been handed down to him from posterity - Pope Borgia, they say REJOICED in the Faith, and did not DARE to change a thing as it would anger God!
Pity you all there at the moment, can't do the same !

[14] Therefore, brethren, stand fast; and hold the traditions which you have learned, whether by word, or by our Epistle. " 2 Thessolonians 2

PS If you look at the top of the 2 Epistle of St Paul to the Thessolonians there is some sage advice......we can ALL learn from it

[3] Let no man deceive you by any means, for unless there come a revolt first, and the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition, [4] Who opposeth, and is lifted up above all that is called God, or that is worshipped, so that he sitteth in the temple (Vatican) of God, shewing himself as if he were God. [5] Remember you not, that when I was yet with you, I told you these things?

Dear Francis
People aren't accusing the Church - they're accusing YOU!"
