Francis Imparts "Blessing" Without Sign Of The Cross

Francis want's to realise "God's dream” and reconcile and harmonise everything and everyone in Christ [except Catholics], and to be “always open, never exclusive,” he said during the September 25 Ecumenical meeting "Dare to be one" organised by the Focolare Movement.

He called this “the dream of fraternity" to which he dedicated Fratelli tutti. At the end of his flowery words, he uttered some blessing staring at the ground and avoiding the sign of the cross.

This is what he said, “Keep smiling which is part of your charism. I pray for you and for your communities. May the Lord bless you and may Our Lady keep you. And please do not forget to pray for me. May the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit bless us all. Amen” - to which the audience ... applauded.

It’s those rigid Catholic “trappings” he despises.
Photographer needs a Covid Mask. Elite dignitaries do not. The Farce Continues as usual.
God is not fooled -- God has withdrawn His Grace from the ministry of Francis. All Grace comes to the human race ONLY through the Cross of Our Lord Jesus Christ! Pray, my friends, keep those Rosary beads warm!!!! This house of cards is about to be taken down!
Perhaps, after his August faux pas with reading the Galatians he wants to avoid further blunders. The Cross has always made elder brothers cross.
they do say the sign of the cross in shy way
No cross. very "shy".
The Catholic church of today is a different religion from the Roman Catholic Church. Ppl have to make a choice of which faith they choose to follow.
Fratelli Tutti doesn't exactly ring true with Traditionis Custodes
I will say it for them,in the name of the Father the Son and the Holy spirit amen.Lord we pray that these clergy do the Will of God only not the will of secular world that wants to distroy the Church and the family
