“Pope” Francis: Vicar of Christ? or Pawn of Satan?
“Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord.” ~ Saint Peter (Acts 3:19)
“‘Do you need to convince the other to become Catholic? No, no, no! Go out and meet him, he is your brother. This is enough. Go out and help him and Jesus will do the rest.’” ~ “Pope” Francis (False Gospel)
Tradition Under Fire: Franciscans of the Immaculate vs. the Vatican
In the video linked below, Michael Matt and Chris Ferrara excoriate Francis — the man they believe to be Vicar of Christ — and reject the Second Vatican Council, which Francis orders them to embrace.
Matt and Ferrara are perfect examples of traditional Catholics who reject the errors of Francis and Vatican II yet refuse to believe Francis is not pope, and that the Church hasn’t had a valid pope since before Vatican II was convened.
Matt and Ferrara believe Francis is pope, yet they refuse to obey him; therefore Matt and Ferrara are operationally — if not actually — sedevacantists.
If Francis is pope he should be obeyed.
If (since) Francis is a heretic he should be disobeyed (and replaced by a true pope).
Matt and Ferrara believe they are protecting papal infallibility by proclaiming Francis pope regardless of his false teachings.
Catholic doctrine protects papal infallibility by considering heretical, thus not Catholic, any pope (such as Francis) who teaches error contrary to the deposit of faith:
“The pope himself, if notoriously guilty of heresy, would cease to be pope because he would cease to be a member of the Church.”

Satan disguises himself as an angel of light, and it’s no surprise his ministers do too.
Matt and Ferrara (and other traditionalists) are (apparently) waiting for Francis to preface his false teachings with a statement such as: “I’m now officially teaching the opposite of long established and official Catholic doctrine and morals…” But Francis, Satan, and Satan’s ministers will never preface their false teachings with something so obvious. Nor do Satan and his ministers wear name tags identifying themselves as “Satan” and “Pawns of Satan”. Instead, Satan and his ministers cleverly disguise themselves, so as to deceive the unwitting (e.g., Matt, Ferrara, etc…)
“For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no surprise if his servants, also, disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their deeds.” ~ Saint Paul (2 Corinthians 11:13-15 (ESV)
“In the midst of epic scandal in the Church, the Vatican cracks down on….the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate? Michael Matt and Christopher Ferrara want to know why? What is the crime of the FFI? Can it possibly be that they are too Catholic?”

Pope Francis Crackdown On Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate For Latin Mass Alarms Traditionalists
“Pope Francis may have been named Time magazine’s Person of the Year, but he has come under scathing criticism from a growing number of traditionalist Catholics for cracking down on a religious order that celebrates the old Latin Mass.
“The matter concerns the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate, a small but growing order that was founded in Italy in 1990 as an offshoot of the larger Franciscan order of the pope’s namesake, St. Francis of Assisi.
“The Vatican in July took the order over and last week imposed remarkable sanctions: closing its seminary, suspending ordinations and requiring priests to accept the post-Vatican II Mass.
“The case has become a flashpoint in the ideological tug-of-war going on in the church over Francis’ revolutionary agenda, which has thrilled progressives and alarmed conservatives.”

Rejecting Francis: Rev. Paul Kramer [Almost] Becomes Sedevacantist
“For your reference, here is the entire paragraph 247 (as well as the following two paragraphs) of Francis’ 51,000-word mammoth exhortation Evangelii Gaudium:
“247. We hold the Jewish people in special regard because their covenant with God has never been revoked, for “the gifts and the call of God are irrevocable” (Rom 11:29). The Church, which shares with Jews an important part of the sacred Scriptures, looks upon the people of the covenant and their faith as one of the sacred roots of her own Christian identity (cf. Rom 11:16-18). As Christians, we cannot consider Judaism as a foreign religion; nor do we include the Jews among those called to turn from idols and to serve the true God (cf. 1 Thes 1:9). With them, we believe in the one God who acts in history, and with them we accept his revealed word.
“248. Dialogue and friendship with the children of Israel are part of the life of Jesus’ disciples. The friendship which has grown between us makes us bitterly and sincerely regret the terrible persecutions which they have endured, and continue to endure, especially those that have involved Christians.
“249. God continues to work among the people of the Old Covenant and to bring forth treasures of wisdom which flow from their encounter with his word. For this reason, the Church also is enriched when she receives the values of Judaism. While it is true that certain Christian beliefs are unacceptable to Judaism, and that the Church cannot refrain from proclaiming Jesus as Lord and Messiah, there exists as well a rich complementarity which allows us to read the texts of the Hebrew Scriptures together and to help one another to mine the riches of God’s word. We can also share many ethical convictions and a common concern for justice and the development of peoples.
“According to Bergoglio, these three paragraphs describe what supposedly is the Catholic Church’s view of her relations with Judaism. This text is filled with heresy and error, failing to distinguish today’s religion of “Judaism” with the Judaism of the Old Covenant, which ceased with the establishment of the Catholic Church on Pentecost Sunday. It is in the coming of the Messiah and the founding of the True Church that God has remained faithful to His promises, so Francis’ misuse of Sacred Scripture (already perpetrated by John Paul II) to bolster his position is nothing short of sickening.
“Today’s Jews are not “the people of the covenant”; their religion, established by Annas and Caiaphas in 33 AD, is a “foreign religion”, it is not the faith of the Catholic Church in any way, nor that of Abraham (cf. Jn 8; Gal 3); and, worshipping a god that is not the Most Holy Trinity, they must turn and convert to the worship of the True God. And it speaks volumes that Francis mentions that “certain Christian beliefs are unacceptable to Judaism,” yet utterly fails to point out that, likewise, certain Jewish beliefs are unacceptable to Christians! Bergoglio’s modus operandi is always the same: Bash Catholics; adulate or exonerate everyone else.
“We have tackled the topic of Francis’ judaizing heresy in greater depth in the following important post: Are Today’s Jews Still God’s Chosen People? – http://www.novusordowatch.org/wire/francis-jews-chosen-people.htm

December 1958 – The Protection of Christmas
“A Child is born to us, a Son is given to us,” is the jubilant shout of Catholics at Christmas. To the Jews, it is a taunt, notifying them that however much they might bedevil the Church with their anti-Christian onslaughts, her ultimate triumph over them is assured. The gates of Hell shall not prevail against her.”

“For just as you [Gentiles] were at one time disobedient to God but now have received mercy because of their [Jews] disobedience, so they [Jews] too have now been disobedient in order that by the mercy shown to you [Gentiles] they [Jews] also may now receive mercy.” ~ Saint Paul (Romans 11:30-31)
Prayer for the Conversion of the Remnant of Israel
“God of Goodness and Father of Mercies, we beseech Thee by the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and by the intercession of the Patriarchs and Holy Apostles, to look with compassion upon the remnant of Israel, so that they may come to a knowledge of our only Savior Jesus Christ, and share in the precious graces of Redemption. Amen.”
The Mystery of Israel’s Salvation
“Lest you be wise in your own sight, I want you to understand this mystery, brothers: a partial hardening has come upon Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in.
And in this way all Israel will be saved, as it is written,
“The Deliverer will come from Zion, he will banish ungodliness from Jacob”; “and this will be my covenant with them when I take away their sins.”
As regards the gospel, they are enemies of God for your sake. But as regards election, they are beloved for the sake of their forefathers. For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. For just as you were at one time disobedient to God but now have received mercy because of their disobedience, so they too have now been disobedient in order that by the mercy shown to you they also may now receive mercy.
For God has consigned all to disobedience, that he may have mercy on all.
Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways! ~ Saint Paul (Romans 11:25-33)
Conversion of the Jews
“According to the interpretation of the Fathers, the conversion of the Jews towards the end of the world is foretold by St. Paul in the Epistle to the Romans (11:25-26): “For I would not have you ignorant, brethren, of this mystery, . . . that blindness in part has happened in Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles should come in. And so all Israel should be saved as it is written: There shall come out of Sion, he that shall deliver, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob“.
