Pope Lends Weight to G-7 Push to Bind Trump to Climate Deal


From the article:

Pope Francis joined an international chorus urging Donald Trump to meet U.S. commitments on climate change in talks at the Vatican Wednesday.

Note: I found it interesting that Melania dressed according to “custom” when meeting the Pope. Hmm…  I guess I would have to ask myself why in this modern day and age are people still being dictated to by a man who is not of their faith?

Here’s Why Melania Trump Wore Black To Meet The Pope


…. traditional rule holds that most women wear long black dresses with sleeves and mantillas, and only a very select handful of women enjoy an exception. These ladies have the “privilège du blanc,” or  which means they’re allowed to wear white if they choose.

Note: “If” you are “Catholic” you have that option.

Pope Warns Against Populism and ‘Saviours’ Like Hitler


From the article:

In an hour-long interview with Spanish newspaper El Pais conducted as Donald Trump was being sworn in as US president, the pontiff also condemned the idea of using walls and barbed wire to keep out foreigners.

The truth is…Europe is our example of what giving free reign looks like. Do we really want to follow suit?

It’s a strange thing to me…on one hand. you have Donald Trump sticking up for Catholics. (I have no personal animosity against Catholic people. There were Catholics in my family.) And on the other hand, you have the Pope appearing to liken Donald Trump to Hitler.

Jesus warned about deception in the last days of earth’s history. Is this part of that deception?

Anything’s a possibility.

Immigration Could Get Push From Pope Francis


From the article:

Many advocates for revamping immigration laws have tried to coax Congress into action over the years, but a particularly powerful one will be arriving next month: Pope Francis.

Lawmakers and immigration activists expect the pontiff’s message will resonate beyond Capitol Hill and inspire members of Congress and their constituents. The pope’s U.S. schedule includes an address to Congress on Sept. 24 and a meeting two days later with immigrants and Hispanic families at Philadelphia’s Independence Mall.

Comments:

The pope is a south american socialist who hates capitalism and America.

This is why many American catholics are leaving the organized church. Plus our money is going to Cuba etc. I am gone from that church telling me how to think. He is a socialist and has always been one.

Another foreigner trying to tell the USA what to do.

Perhaps the Pope should attend his own nation’s borders or what they call “migrant” problems for I understand those Africans are dying in the sea trying to get to Italy and could use the Pope’s help.

This particular Pope is also endorsing Man Made “global warming”, another scheme to forcibly redistribute the Wealth, that belongs to someone Else…Obama has to be this Pope’s biggest fan! The two of them are both huge fans of the “Liberation Theology” heresy…taught to Obama by his Rev Wright. It’s a blasphemous doctrine that fully squared with what Obama’s commie parents believed and what his “mentor” Frank Marshall Davis taught him.

Pope Francis Met Televangelists Kenneth Copeland and James Robison (Video)

June 30, 2014


From the article:

A delegation of evangelicals led by televangelists Kenneth Copeland and James Robison met with Pope Francis for three hours last week at the Vatican.

The meeting was set up by Bishop Tony Palmer, a bishop of the Anglican Episcopal Church in the United Kingdom. Last January, Palmer addressed a Kenneth Copeland pastor’s conference calling for unity between Catholics and Protestants.

Pope Francis to Address Congress, a Milestone that Could Have Many Holding Their Breath


From the article:

In a landmark event that could have many holding their breath, Pope Francis has agreed to address a joint meeting of Congress this fall. That sets the stage for an oration by an outspoken pontiff whose views on immigration and global warming clash with those of many Republicans who run the House and Senate.

Pope: God Will Judge You on Whether You Cared for Earth


From the article:

Pope Francis warned the rich and powerful on Tuesday that God will judge them on whether they fed the poor and cared for the Earth, his latest exhortation on the environment ahead of his eagerly-awaited encyclical on climate change and its effects on the world’s most vulnerable.

And:

Francis has said global warming is “mostly” man-made and that humanity has a moral duty to stop it.

Catholics Organize to Promote Pope’s Climate Change Message


From the article:

There will be prayer vigils and pilgrimages, policy briefings and seminars, and sermons in parishes from the U.S. to the Philippines.

When Pope Francis releases his much-anticipated teaching document on the environment and climate change in the coming weeks, a network of Roman Catholics will be ready. These environmental advocates – who work with bishops, religious orders, Catholic universities and lay movements – have been preparing for months to help maximize the effect of the statement, hoping for a transformative impact in the fight against global warming.

Hmm…Agenda of Change, Sounds Familiar

Pope Francis Extends Agenda of Change to Vatican Diplomacy


From the article:

Pope Francis’ hard-hitting criticisms of globalization and inequality long ago set him out as a leader unafraid of mixing theology and politics. He is now flexing the Vatican’s diplomatic muscles as well.

Last year, he helped to broker an historic accord between Cuba and the United States after half a century of hostility.

And:

Much of his effort has concentrated on improving relations between different faiths and protecting the embattled Middle East Christians, a clear priority for the Catholic Church.

I was going to post some comments to this story. In fact, I started to…but they are kind of “all over the place”.

Though I do have a comment of my own. The last line about improving relations between different faiths….and protecting Middle East Christians….so what about ISIS beheading Christians?

The Pope says ISIS must be stopped. But how? (August 18th, 2014 )


From the article:

Nearly everyone agrees that the militant Muslim group rampaging through northern Iraq must be stopped. The question is, how?

Asked if he approved of the American airstrikes against ISIS, Pope Francis withheld his moral imprimatur on Monday, refusing to fully support or denounce the military campaign.

Cuban President Raul Castro is Considering a Return to the Catholic Church’s Fold

Castro: Pope Francis so Impressive I Might Return to Church


From the article:

Cuban President Raul Castro paid a call Sunday on Pope Francis at the Vatican to thank him for working for Cuban-U.S. detente — and said he was so impressed by the pontiff he is considering a return to the Catholic church’s fold.

“Bienvenido (welcome)!” Francis said in his native Spanish, welcoming Castro to his studio near the Vatican public audience hall. The Cuban president, bowing his head, gripped Francis’ hand with both of his, and the two men began private talks. The meeting lasted nearly an hour, as the Argentine-born Francis and Castro spoke in Spanish.

Interesting:


 The pontiff “is a Jesuit, and I, in some way, am too,” Castro said at a news conference. “I always studied at Jesuit schools.”


Francis will visit Cuba in September en route to the United States.


Revelation 17:12

And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.

The Mystery Explained

In Context

11“The beast which was and is not, is himself also an eighth and is one of the seven, and he goes to destruction. 12“The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but they receive authority as kings with the beast for one hour. 13“These have one purpose, and they give their power and authority to the beast.
