Francis' New Interview Book: “Celibacy Is Decisive Grace”

“I am convinced that celibacy is a gift, a grace, and following in the footsteps of Paul VI, John Paul II and Benedict XVI, I strongly feel an obligation to think of celibacy as a decisive grace …

"Satan is often depicted as a serpent with a FORKED TONGUE. One prong speaks truth and the other falsehood."

You should know, Thors Catholic Hammer. There isn't a day that goes by without your endless repetition of falsehoods you have not, can not, and will not prove.

@Ultraviolet wants to convince Thor that Antipope Francis (someone who is being paid for his job, ordained invalidly in a new rite) is the Vicar of Christ.
censorship, comments
Its because it's against our Faith to return insults. All you do is insult him.
I pity anybody who has you as a friend.

Matthew 7:5
Thou hypocrite, cast out first the beam in thy own eye, and then shalt thou see to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.
LOL, no, Pattfm. You really don't understand English. Nobody is trying to "convince" Thor of anything. Thor is entirely beyond convincing on any subject he fixates upon. It doesn't matter whether it's "communion in the hand prevents germs" or "Pope Francis". Whenever Thor latches onto a delusion, he never lets go no matter how much reason or science or philosophy contradicts him.

One prong speaks truth and the other falsehood.
That is precisely how antipope Francis speaks to the world.

Nothing he says can be believed or has authority because he has been automatically excommunicated from the body of the Roman Catholic since the promulgation of Amoris laetitiae.
Catholics need to understand this new reality …More

Catholics need to understand this new reality and also pray for the release of Pope Benedict xvi who is effectively under house arrest in the Vatican.

What will Francis DO?

In words he
- claims harmony with magisterium
- views celibacy as a grace for Latin Church
- affirms JP2’s teaching on possibility of ordaining women
- views modern ‘gender theory’ as an evil that attempts to distort human nature

Celebacy is a grace in the Latin Church but is it essential? Pope Benedict would say yes. I bet Francis will soon say no. He'll "accompany" married priests in the Amazon and South America

What I would like to know is, who believes any of Francis words anymore.
What I would like to know is, what Francis wishes to be understood to mean by accompaniment and pastoral care that is different from what it has always meant particularly regarding practicing homosexuals. Because there are many instances of blatant "in your face" blasphemous displays in the U.S. "accompanying" the celebration of Mass. I don't know one that has been publicly denounced by a pastor …More

I don't know one that has been publicly denounced by a pastor or bishop. That's not accompaniment or pastoral care. That is cowardice, the opposite of accompaniment and care, while the church is steam-rolled into oblivion.

Francis has thrown out the Natural Law and the teachings against sodomy in Scripture and now says that we must accompany them in their sins. The thought of homo priests and bishops putting their filthy hands and mouth on the Eucharist is revolting.
