New Pope Francis I
New Pope, S.J. (Societas Iesu)
Shalom Lew! Just wondering what your thoughts are about the new pope just voted in? Thanks for your personal response.
Thank you for your question sister. Since I don’t know the man personally, I’ll share what little I’ve gathered about him.
I’m sure you’ve seen others bringing up all sorts of negative comments, but we are to treat our fellow human beings in the same way we would want to be treated - that’s the ruling demanded by our Head, Yahusha. So, I’ll refrain from any personal attacks on this 76-year-old man from Argentina.
We can all assume the pope is a Catholic, specifically a Roman Catholic. There are other kinds of Catholics, such as Anglican Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Catholic. This one happens to also be a member of the darker “shadow” government within Roman Catholicism, the Societas Iesu, or Jesuit Order. This is the militant arm of the organization. Militant? How so?
This is a brief introductory passage on “Regimini militantis Ecclesiae", the Jesuit order, at Wikipedia.com:
“Regimini militantis Ecclesiae (Latin for To the Government of the Church Militant) was the papal bull promulgated by Pope Paul III on September 27, 1540, which gave a first approval to the Society of Jesus, also known as the Jesuits, but limited the number of its members to sixty. The first group of Jesuits, then known simply as "reformed priests", proceeded then to elect Saint Ignatius of Loyola as their Superior General, against his opposition, and pledged him obedience, recognizing him as 'holding the place of God' in relation to them.”
Mind-control through meditation and “exercises” are part of the lifestyle of the Jesuits. They follow their leader without question, having their conscience seared (numbed) due to having been completely reprogrammed with illogical thinking patterns. I know, because they used these techniques on me during my entire primary schooling. It failed to program me because early-on I had questions, and they failed to provide valid answers. I rejected most of what they taught, and this prepared me to seek for the answers to the questions, which eventually lead to my book, Fossilized Customs. If a person is weak-minded, these training techniques will conquer a young mind, and the new thinking patterns will become “fixed”. Bill Clinton was mentored by a Jesuit, Carroll Quigley. Jesuit universities prepare the young, and the “chosen ones” are culled-out of the herd if they are found to have been well-adjusted to the programming, and able to be controlled. Their conscience is destroyed, and they are able to be inhabited easily by fallen malakim, which explains quite a lot of political behavior and decision-making that seems wildly illogical.
The interesting thing about any papal choice is that those who “vote” on the man select from their own small pool of men who are in control of over one billion people. Like any political group that has usurped and consolidated power, they have designed mechanisms that maintain that systemic power. It is a political entity posing as a religious institution, and they hold the wider majority of the world in a delusional pattern of thinking and behavior. It is the greatest show on Earth, a literal circus. It controls the media (such as NPR cited below), banking, and every major government through a network of well-placed operatives, and is at the heart of the United Nations. The Jesuits are skilled infiltrators, and they educate the elite's youth in every nation they inhabit. The “ecumenical” movement finds its logical conclusion in the U.R.I., the “United Religions Initiative”, and this is the goal of what “universalism” is; Catholicism means "universalism".
The new pope is a Jesuit, and holds to the Jesuit oath:http://www.fossilizedcustoms.com/jesuitoath.htm
This oath stands in conflict with the teachings of Yahusha, that we love our enemies, and to beware of the "leaven" (doctrines) of men, adding to the instructions of Yahuah. If we identify the tree's fruit as being love, it is a good tree. Knowing that the Jesuits were the militia used against the Protestants, and over 83 million perished at their hands over a 600-year period, the identity of the tree becomes obvious. If we abide in Yahusha's Word, we will know the Truth, and the Truth will set us free. (Yn 8:31,32)
The new pope, 76-year-old Jorge Bergoglio, the archbishop of Buenos Aires, is the first pontiff from Latin America and the first Jesuit, but he appears to hold views very much in line with his predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI.
Bergoglio has chosen the papal name Francis, becoming the 266th to hold the title of spiritual leader of the Catholic Church.
Catholic News Service calls him an accomplished theologian and says Bergoglio has "written books on spirituality and meditation and has been outspoken against abortion and same-sex marriages."
He was born Dec. 17, 1936, in Buenos Aires to Italian parents Mario, a railway worker, and Regina, a housewife, reports Argentina's La Nacion.
The newspaper says that when Bergoglio traveled to Rome, he kept a low profile and didn't like to reveal that he was a cardinal.
"That's why he is frequently seen wearing a black overcoat. Also, when he was declared a cardinal, he decided not to buy new clothing. Instead, he ordered the clothing of the previous cardinal be mended to fit him," the newspaper says.
Francesca Ambrogetti, who co-authored a biography on Bergoglio, was quoted by Reuters the cardinal as a moderate who is media shy and deeply concerned about social inequities in Latin America and elsewhere.
"He would be a balancing force," Ambrogetti told the news agency. "He shares the view that the Church should have a missionary role, that gets out to meet people, that is active.... a church that does not so much regulate the faith as promote and facilitate it."
"By choosing the name [Francis] of the founder of his community's traditional rivals, the 266th Roman pontiff ... [he] has signaled three things: his desire to be a force of unity in a polarized fold, a heart for the poor, and his intent to 'repair God's house, which has fallen into ruin' ... that is, "
Thomas X. Noble, a professor of history at Notre Dame University, says the choice of the papal name evokes St. Francis of Assisi, who preached in the streets as a pauper, could signal that the new pontiff seeks to be a populist pope as well as St. Francis Xavier, one of the 16th century founders of the Jesuit order.
"This is not a power name, this is not a dogma name," Noble says.
The Rev. James Martin, a Jesuit priest who is editor of magazine, a Catholic weekly, says Bergoglio is "a holy and prayerful man, devoted to the poor and a strong defender of church teaching."
"Remember that as a Jesuit he takes vows of poverty, chastity and obedience, and he will surely be a strong defender of the poor," Martin says.
"He's very much a boots on the ground kind of man," says Donna Bethell, chairwoman of Christendom College in Front Royal, Va. "I think he's going to be a very strong voice for the Church."
Harvey Cox, a professor at Harvard Divinity School, says the choice of a South American cardinal is an acknowledgement that "the growing edge of the Catholic Church is no longer in Europe, it's in the Southern Hemisphere and the non-Western world."
In recent years, he says, Protestants, especially evangelicals, have been making significant inroads in South America, though less so in Argentina than in some other countries.
Cox calls the move a "quantum leap" for the Catholic Church, but speculates that while the conclave "wanted to move outside Western Europe at long last, they didn't want to pin themselves down to a third world pope for the long haul."
Chad Pecknold, assistant professor of theology at The Catholic University of America, says "the time may come when Catholics of the global south will be evangelizing Catholics of the global north."
Catholic News Service says Bergoglio, who was archbishop of Buenos Aires
until 2012, has a low-key style and is close to the people. He "has had a
growing reputation as a very spiritual man with a talent for pastoral
leadership serving in a region with the largest number of the world's
"He rides the bus, visits the poor, lives in a simple apartment and cooks his own meals. To many in Buenos Aires, he is known simply as "Father Jorge."
He also has created new
parishes, restructured the administrative offices, led pro-life initiatives
and started new pastoral programs, such as a commission for divorcees. He
co-presided over the 2001 Synod of Bishops and was elected to the synod
council, so he is well-known to the world's bishops.
In 2010, when Argentina became the first Latin American country to legalize same-sex marriage, Cardinal Bergoglio encouraged clergy across the country to tell Catholics to protest against the legislation because, if enacted, it could "seriously injure the family," he said.
He also said adoption by same-sex couples would result in "depriving [children] of the human growth that God wanted them given by a father and a mother."
One of the big questions about Bergoglio is his stance on Liberation Theology, which advocates liberation from unjust economic, political or social conditions. Latin America was very much the epicenter of the movement.
"He spent much of his early career teaching literature, psychology and philosophy, and early on he was seen as a rising star. From 1973 to 1979 he served as the Jesuit provincial in Argentina, then in 1980 became the rector of the seminary from which he had graduated.
"These were the years of the military junta in Argentina, when many priests, including leading Jesuits, were gravitating towards the progressive liberation theology movement. As the Jesuit provincial, Bergoglio insisted on a more traditional reading of Ignatian spirituality, mandating that Jesuits continue to staff parishes and act as chaplains rather than moving into "base communities" and political activism."
