After reading the encyclical titled ‘Laudato SI’ that was recently released, I found many statements within the document to be quite questionable.
I honestly believe along with Catholic journalist, Michael Matt from ‘The Remnant’, that our Holy Father, Pope Francis, is possibly under control from enemies of the Church within the UN as he stated Here, although I would also argue that the masons are just as much responsible, however, that’s a topic for another day. The disturbing quotations from the encyclical, along with my commentary, list as follows:
- Section 63: Respect must also be shown for the various cultural riches of different peoples, their art and poetry, their interior life and spirituality. If we are truly concerned to develop an ecology capable of remedying the damage we have done, no branch of the sciences and no form of wisdom can be left out, and that includes religion and the language particular to it. The Catholic Church is open to dialogue with philosophical thought; this has enabled her to produce various syntheses between faith and reason. The development of the Church’s social teaching represents such a synthesis with regard to social issues; this teaching is called to be enriched by taking up new challenges.
Excuse me if I am misinterpreting this, but is our beloved Pope suggesting that we respect the false religions of various nations such as Buddhism, modern Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, and Wicca that reject the basic dogmas of the Holy Catholic faith? Are we to respect pagan religions that worship deities of the underworld such as Buddhism, Hinduism, and Wicca that outright blaspheme our Lord? Respect for the individual human being is one thing since we are to respect the dignity of each and every single person since we are all made in the image of God, however, respecting a religion that flat out rejects Christ whom is the way, truth, and the life is objectively speaking border line apostasy since it can initiate indifferentism as we have seen at Assisi under the authority of Pope John Paul II, which later resulted in Buddhist worship within a Catholic chapel of Assisi along with placing a statue of the false prophet Buddha above the Tabernacle in which Our Lord was present.

Are we not, by the virtue of our baptism, obliged to share the Gospel with those in false religions so that we can lead them to the truth for the salvation of their souls? Was not indifferentism previously condemned by the Church in Her 2000 years of tradition and the infallible councils? What about the encyclical of Pope Gregory the 15th titled ‘Mirari Vos’ that was released on August 15,1832 which states the following:
“Now We consider another abundant source of the evils with which the Church is afflicted at present: indifferentism. This perverse opinion is spread on all sides by the fraud of the wicked who claim that it is possible to obtain the eternal salvation of the soul by the profession of any kind of religion, as long as morality is maintained. Surely, in so clear a matter, you will drive this deadly error far from the people committed to your care. With the admonition of the apostle that “there is one God, one faith, one baptism”may those fear who contrive the notion that the safe harbor of salvation is open to persons of any religion whatever. They should consider the testimony of Christ Himself that “those who are not with Christ are against Him,” and that they disperse unhappily who do not gather with Him. Therefore “without a doubt, they will perish forever, unless they hold the Catholic faith whole and inviolate.” Let them hear Jerome who, while the Church was torn into three parts by schism, tells us that whenever someone tried to persuade him to join his group he always exclaimed: “He who is for the See of Peter is for me.”A schismatic flatters himself falsely if he asserts that he, too, has been washed in the waters of regeneration. Indeed Augustine would reply to such a man: “The branch has the same form when it has been cut off from the vine; but of what profit for it is the form, if it does not live from the root?”
- Section 64. “Furthermore, although this Encyclical welcomes dialogue with everyone so that together we can seek paths of liberation, I would like from the outset to show how faith convictions can offer Christians, and some other believers as well, ample motivation to care for nature and for the most vulnerable of their brothers and sisters. If the simple fact of being human moves people to care for the environment of which they are a part, Christians in their turn “realize that their responsibility within creation, and their duty towards nature and the Creator, are an essential part of their faith”. It is good for humanity and the world at large when we believers better recognize the ecological commitments which stem from our convictions.”
The reason I find this to be quite questionable is because it seems that our beloved Pope intends to promote flexibility of theology and ideas from those outside of the Church in regards to how we solve the issues we are now facing in the world, thus “dialogue with everyone so that together we can seek paths of liberation”. Continuing..
- Section 67: “Although it is true that we Christians have at times incorrectly interpreted the Scriptures, nowadays we must forcefully reject the notion that our being created in God’s image and given dominion over the earth justifies absolute domination over other creatures.”
While it is true that those who identify as Christians have misinterpreted scripture, is the Holy Father also suggesting that the Church has misinterpreted scripture these past 2000 years, especially when it comes to the “symbolic and narrative language” as stated in section 66? Continuing..
- Section 216: The rich heritage of Christian spirituality, the fruit of twenty centuries of personal and communal experience, has a precious contribution to make to the renewal of humanity. Here, I would like to offer Christians a few suggestions for an ecological spirituality grounded in the convictions of our faith, since the teachings of the Gospel have direct consequences for our way of thinking, feeling and living. More than in ideas or concepts as such, I am interested in how such a spirituality can motivate us to a more passionate concern for the protection of our world. A commitment this lofty cannot be sustained by doctrine alone, without a spirituality capable of inspiring us, without an “interior impulse which encourages, motivates, nourishes and gives meaning to our individual and communal activity”.
Is neo pagan ecological spirituality now bound upon the faithful, Holy Father since section 15 states “It is my hope that this Encyclical Letter, which is now added to the body of the Church’s social teaching, can help us to acknowledge the appeal, immensity and urgency of the challenge we face”? Wouldn’t this be apostasy?
- Section 222: “Christian spirituality proposes an alternative understanding of the quality of life, and encourages a prophetic and contemplative lifestyle, one capable of deep enjoyment free of the obsession with consumption. We need to take up an ancient lesson, found in different religious traditions and also in the Bible.”
This quotation explains itself clearly.. This is blasphemy and heresy. Suggesting that we take up ancient lessons of false religions, such as the Quran which outright rejects the Blessed Trinity, Baptism, the Divinity of Our Lord, Jesus Christ etc. – is something the Saints of the Church would condemn.
“Any cult which denies the divinity of Christ, does not profess the existence of the Holy Trinity, refutes baptism, defames Christians, and derogates the priesthood, we consider to be damned.” -Sts. Aurelius, Felix, George, Liliosa, and Natalia (d. 852), martyrs of Cordoba, Spain. Reported in the Memoriale Sanctorum in response to Spanish Umayyad Caliph ‘Abd Ar-Rahman II’s ministers that they convert to Islam on pain of death.
- 236: “Indeed the Eucharist is itself an act of cosmic love: “Yes, cosmic! Because even when it is celebrated on the humble altar of a country church, the Eucharist is always in some way celebrated on the altar of the world”.
What is this altar of the world if the prince of this world is satan?..
- Section 246: At the conclusion of this lengthy reflection which has been both joyful and troubling, I propose that we offer two prayers. The first we can share with all who believe in a God who is the all-powerful Creator, while in the other we Christians ask for inspiration to take up the commitment to creation set before us by the Gospel of Jesus.
Holy Father, are we to pray with those who do not accept the basic Christian faith? Are we to pray with pagans who worship demons, muslims and jews who reject the messiah, and heretics who reject the Catholic faith? What about Pope Saint. Agatho I, your successor, whom stated “If anyone prays with heretics, he is a heretic” which he stated in the 7th century? Is this now out dated theology, thus Church teachings can develop and change along with Dogma that was condemned by Pope Pius X, or is this still the case?
Continue to pray for the Holy Father, my fellow crusaders.
