“Furthermore, throughout the Instrumentum Laboris one finds a very positive assessment of natural religions, including indigenous healing practices, etc., even mythic-religious practices and cult forms. In the context of the call for harmony with nature, for example, there is even talk about ‘dialogue with the spirits’….
“It has to be emphatically stated that the Instrumentum Laboris (for the upcoming October 6-27 Synod on the Amazon Region) contradicts the binding teachings of the Church on decisive points, and is therefore to be qualified as heretical. Inasmuch as the fact of Divine Revelation is here even being questioned or misunderstood, one must also speak of apostasy.”
That a leading cardinal-historian of the Roman Catholic institution dared to come out openly and speak of heresy and apostasy on this matter of the Amazon Synod indicated the depth of feeling which the Jesuit pope was stirring up in those leading Papists who held to the traditional teachings and practices of the Roman Catholic institution, and opposed what the Jesuits were seeking to do to their “Church”.
Is the Roman Catholic Institution Going to Split?
Incredibly, the following words have been attributed to Francis I:
“It is not to be excluded that I will enter history as the one who split the Catholic Church.”
The words are attributed to Francis by journalist Walter Mayr, writing in 2016. Francis was said to have spoken them to members of his inner circle, and they were later repeated to Mayr. The Vatican neither confirmed nor denied the remark.
Whether or not Francis said those words, he definitely said the following on September 10, 2019, while on the papal plane during a press conference on board – and they show that it is entirely possible he really did say what is attributed to him above: “I am not afraid of schisms, I pray that there will be none, because what is at stake is people’s spiritual health. Let there be dialogue, let there be correction if there is an error, but the schismatic path is not Christian…. A schism is always an elitist separation stemming from an ideology detached from doctrine. It is an ideology, perhaps correct, but that engages doctrine and detaches it…. And so I pray that schisms do not happen, but I am not afraid of them.”
What is going on?
A Roman Catholic commentator using the pseudonym “Luxsit”, on the website Lifesitenews, hit the nail on the head. Obviously a conservative Papist, this commentator wrote: “I think it is likely we [i.e. conservative Roman Catholics] are being set up to be labeled the scapegoat ‘schismatics’ when the Vatican officially becomes apostate (and the real schismatics), though the groundwork was laid decades ago. In the eyes of the world, that will support the Vatican’s claims that anything orthodox is ‘outside the Church.’”
Responding to this comment, another likeminded Papist, under the pseudonym “Borghesius”, wrote: “I believe you are spot on here. The liberals could have split off from the Church at any time in the previous 4 pontificates: they have been in a de facto schism ever since the (dissenting) response to Humanae Vitae. But Francis gives them the opportunity, and they want it to appear, that THEY are Church and the Catholics are splitting off from them. That way they get the money, power, property, and can claim to be the Catholic church when by belief they are nothing of the sort.”
Remembering these comments were written by Papists and that according to Scripture, both sides – conservative and liberal Papists – are heretical, and that Rome is not becoming apostate but never has been Christian in any sense, they are still correct in that conservative, traditional Papists are being set up to be labelled as the “schismatics”; that as liberal, Jesuit-manipulated Papists increasingly come to dominate and control all aspects of the life of the “Church”, traditional, conservative Papists will be rejected as being schismatics, heretics and unorthodox.
