A Lutheran Bishop persuades Roman Catholicism and becomes a Catholic Priest! Fr. Joseph Jacobson, former Lutheran Bishop and currently a Catholic priest, believes the priesthood as an instrument of God. It was the faith and sacrifice of Catholics that spurred him to take the biggest decision of his life. Any loss bound to happen in his life could never match his boundless love towards Lord. He chose himself to be happily serving professional in the world by becoming a Catholic priest.

Not everyone @Ultraviolet, not everyone.
Absolutely everyone! :D And candles! Let's not forget candles. The Masons and Jews use them in their rituals. Therefore using candles are a sign of Judeo-Masonic sneakiness.
Pattfm
Finally! You've made a point. That is a disguised jewish menorah.
What else can you spot?
A wine chalice is the most daming evidence. Jews drink wine during the Passover Seder and Masonic Illuminati use wine, corn and oil as elements of consecration so from this we can rightly conclude these men are either Jews or Masonic Illuminati or both. ;-)
Pattfm
Another good point! Jews drink wine indeed.
We Catholics drink the Blood of Christ.
What else can you see?
If you ask Matty, he might just tell you Jews drink blood too. :P ..and, no, an altar candelabra (candelabrum if we wanna get really picky) is not a disguised menorah. Just in case anyone loses sight of what we're doing here. ;-)
Pattfm
www.youtube.com/watch Even in the year 1940! Catholics use candlesticks for worship. The altar is not a dinning table.
"If you ask..." Have I made you deny Christ?
Or are you too concerned about people's opinion? What about the truth?
What else can you see?
VII (Freemasons) brought in a lot of things. You must be prudent!
If you are seriously arguing that altar candelabra are "VII Freemason"... wow. Good luck with that.

Its just like showing me a picture of a church where one is improperly dressed and automatically conclude that immodesty is a part of Catholic customs.
False analogy. How parishioners dress is not part of the Church's liturgical expression of the Latin Mass. The uniformity of the Latin Mass is precisely its strength.

But that's a secondary point.

If you claim candelabra were introduced from VII (Freemasons) and I post a photo of a Mass with candelabra that occurred before VII, then your claim is invalid.

Well, I first posted a 1940 video where a jewish menorah was on their altar. The priests were doing something very good. But that jewish menorah aught not to be in the Holy of Holies.
Please see my earlier point about the time. A video from 1940 is twenty two years before Vatican Council II, so that Mass was free from "VII Freemason" influence.

Also, a Hannukah menorah holds nine candles. The menorah in the Jewish temple held seven candles. The candelabrum in the colour video at the top of the page (where all this started from) holds ten. candles.

"so that Mass was free from "VII Freemason" influence."? So there were no infiltrations and changes?
From the given 7 to 9 to 10. Who knows the next number.

Everyone who calls Francis a pope is Spiritually blind.
Everyone who believes Francis is unique in being a "bad pope" is blind to Church history. There have been many, many "Francis'" before Francis. Why does God allow Francis? Why does God allow pedo-priests, corrupt bishops and Vatican Council II? Why indeed?

Tell me, JTLiuzza ... are you old enough to remember what a "card catalog" was? Or were you in one of those "special" classes that always stayed in the Children's Section over by the colored blocks?

The reason I ask is this subject has already been covered in scholarly works long before the internet became what we see today. Over thirty years ago Peter DeRosa published Vicars of Christ: the Dark Side of the Papacy (New York, 1988) and he was not alone. Eamon Duffy tread much the same ground in his exhaustive Saints and Sinners: A History of the Popes, (Yale, 2002).

Admittedly, I'm not providing those citationa for your edification, but for those here who are, in fact, capable of pursuing an interesting subject on their own. You, on the other hand, need to be spoon-fed, probably both literally and figuratively. Fair enough. Open wide...

Sergius III (904-11), was popularly know to his Curia as "the slave of every vice" and became Pope by murdering his predecessor. Pope Sergius also fathered a son with his teenage mistress, a protitute who was 30 years younger. This happy family's illegitimate offspring became the next pope, John XI.

John XII (955-64) reputedly slept with both of his sisters and history records he died while fornicating with another man's wife. Some source indicate he was murdered by the lady's husband while caught in the act.

Benedict IX, (1032-48) was a noted pederast. Evoking today's former papacy of a similar name, Benedict abdicated and then changed his mind and seized power for a second time. Saint Peter Damian described him as "a wretch who feasted on immorality" and "a demon from hell in the disguise of a priest."

Boniface VIII (1294-1303) had the Italian town of Palestrina massacred after they surrendered to his troops. He, too, favored young boys and notoriously justified his vice by claiming it was "no more a sin than rubbing one hand against the other".

Clement VI (1342-52) earned the sobriquet of "Ecclesiastical Dionysus" from the poet Petrarch. Clement eventually caught gonorrhea from one of his numerous mistresses. Still, at least they were women. The Papacy was making some moral advances, it seems.

Sixtus IV (1471-84), insituted a Church tax on prostitution and apparently also sur-charged priests who kept mistresses. , but critics argued that this merely increased the prevalence of clerical homosexuality. His own appetites were more Grecian, so to speak. Even nominally sympathetic fellow Italian historians noted his choices for cardinals were extremely attractive young men.

Innocent VIII (1484-92) acknowledged eight illegitimate sons and was known to have at least twice that number. He also once graciously received a gift of 100 dark-skinned slaves and handed them out as gifts to favored cardinals.

Alexander VI (1492-1503) one of the Borgia Popes was famous for his celebrated Banquet of Chestnuts in 1501, better known as "The Joust Of The Whores". His method of financing the Vatican was to confiscate the wealth and the estates of others on spurious charges.

Julius II (1503-13), the succeeding Pope is best known for commissioning Michelangelo to paint the Sistene Chapel’s ceiling. He's much -less- known for being the first Pope recognized as having caught syphillis which ultimately consumed him.

Julius III (1550-55) became smitten with a beggar boy he noticed in the streets. Julius eventually appointed the youth to a cardinalship at the age of seventeen, dismissing critics who pointed out the boy was illiterate.

Those, mind you, are some of the truly scandalous Popes. There are certainly others, far more obscure ones. They tend not attract as much attention since history generally views spite, malice, greed and corruption as simply the marks of a shrewd leader, either temporal or spiritual.

The point we can derive from this long and sordid list, is truly flawed men have carried on the apostolic succession, many times over.

No, JTLiuzza Francis isn't a novelty at all. Except, obviously, for those dim-witted souls who never thought to compare him against his predecessors. Or those who lack even the basic skills to do so.

None of this material was particularly difficult to find, least of all now in the so-called "Information Age". Does the word "google" have any meaning for you? I mean outside of that funny noise you make with your sippy-cup during "snack-time"?

Sometimes I genuinely how people like you even manage to get online in the first place. Do the orderlies turn on a computer in the rec-room and wheel your chair over to it?

From some your comments, I wouldn't at all be surprised.
JTLiuzza
You still haven't named one you snotty pompous ass. If Bergolio would murder, get venereal disease, or sire children, you would have a point. But as usual, you don't. And you're too stupid to see the chasm between Bergoglio and ALL of his predecessors.

And as info the hissy fits are not very becoming. You're liable to break a nail typing so much.
...and you call me a lunatic? Oh my stars... Pope Francis is corrupt and he's evil. Nor is he the first pope like this. Do you seriously think Francis' ideology separates his nature from his predecessors? It doesn't. Francis' ideology is a means to an end and that's where your pathetic near-sightedness falls short.

If you want to argue there's a "chasm between Bergoglio and ALL of his predecessors" then it's up to you to prove it. You'd understand that if you had the slightest understanding of how normal people disagree with one another. Maybe you should ask your therapist for guided role-play therapy with one of the other mouth-breathers in your ward.

What a gullible fellow!
You quoted a product of VII, by VII for VII. Written by "2 great historians" in 1988,2002. Just like how every protestant history looks like. Its accusations are very trivial without any base. Every book on History says that the Catholic Church opposed science but only a fool will believe that.

Just like all modern books on science push heliocentricism. Please cite a book written by a Catholic.
Catholic history is Catholic history. VII history is VII history. Protestant history is protestant History. Now cite a pre-VII book (when VII had not started dealing with gullible people).

What about Honorius?

"If Martin Luther said 1+1=2"? Its just like saying that the devil is not a liar because he can pronounce 'a b c'

So you believe the Church opposed science? What definition do you give the Church? Have you heard of 1. St. Albert the great Scientist?
2. Christopher Columbus
3. Well science is not to oppose the Church. science is what it takes to build a Church: The Gold smiths, the carpenters, the Stone layers, the engravers. That is pure science.
4. What the Church was against was alchymy.
5. Do you know what it takes to cast a sword or a shield? The swift chariots and carriages. Having very strong wheels! :)
6. Papal physician. You can trace them down from Pope Pius XII. :)

VII apologized to:
1. Galileo
2. Martin Luther
3. Homosexuals
4. Demons (Psalm 95:5)
"VII apologised. The Catholic can never apologise to falsehood."

No. This happened after VII. The Roman Catholic Church apologized.

What definition do you give science? I can say the Church Herself belives She opposed science, otherwise no apology would be given posthumously to the scientist Gallileo.

"What the Church was against was alchymy."

Galllileo was discussing astronomy not alchemy.

"No. This happened after VII. The Roman Catholic Church apologized."? Exactly! Because VII a counter Church. Pay at least a little heed to prophecies.

"I can say the Church Herself belives She opposed science"? VII only wanted to paint the Church as fallible. VII apologised and not The Catholic Church (Traditional Catholic Church).

"Galllileo was discussing astronomy not alchemy."? But he was challenging a great number of truths in the Bible that proves Geocentricism.
One mark of the Church is to fight errors!


"God Himself knows why you raised that but"? Forging a sword required less skill than casting. The mould, liquefaction of the metal at a very high temperature. Take bells as another example. The also forged swords.

"Max J. Ellul"? VII historian indeed! He used the first paragraph to condemn true and faithful popes. Why then was Sylvester III chosen while Benedict IX was a valid pope?

"
You really, really, really need some scientific support for that claim."?. I have supports. By the way, the Bible has all the answers already which I would be very happy to share with you.

And again. Max J. Ellul is a shallow historian (he read from the wrong source. Same accusations from prots.). Shallow historians always make baseless attacks on the Church. He has got you to believe the crusades were evil?
"Because VII a counter Church."

That is heresy.

"Matthew 4:6"

Irrelevant to the logical fallacy you are making.

"VII apologised and not The Catholic Church (Traditional Catholic Church)."

There is only one Catholic Church. Vatican Council II happened within it. The Church did not split after Vatican Council II. The apology was made by the Pope himself, a Pope who is now a Saint.

"proves Geocentrism"??? You seriously still believe the sun orbits the earth and not the reverse? That is insane. I am not sure I should laugh or cry.

"One mark of the Church is to fight errors!"

None yet shown from Galileo.

"Forging a sword required less skill than casting."

Check your world history. Casting was discovered first for a reason. Still no explanation given why casting vs. forging is relevant. At this point I am certain I do not want to know.

"Max J. Ellul"? VII historian indeed! He used the first paragraph to condemn true and faithful popes.

Ellul was quoting a Catholic Saint and Doctor of The Church, who is also quoted in several other books in the link I supplied.

Also, you are making the same mistake: complaining about the origin of information does not disprove the information itself.

This is what you are doing:

1.) You demand proof
2.) I supply the proof you demanded
3.) You complain about the source of the proof instead of refuting the proof itself. "It is VII, Lutheran, etc."
...then...
4.) You change the subject like so.

"Why then was Sylvester III chosen while Benedict IX was a valid pope?"

I am not going to allow that again. It is dishonest of you and unfair to me.

You demanded a citation from a Catholic against Benedict IX.

I gave you one from Saint Peter Damian who condemned Benedict IX.

You demanded a link to a book showing Saint Peter Damian truly said this about Benedict IX..

Your exact words:
"Saint Peter Damian issued against Benedict IX"? Link to a book? I will gladly use ctrl + F."

I gave you a link to a book, including full publication data and even a screen shot from the book itself.

I also gave you a link that brings you to several more books with the same information.

The claim is proven. Enough is enough.
