Pope Francis wants to liberalize the Catholic Church

On Oct. 13, 1973, Sister Agnes Sasagawa, of AKITA, was given the six statements of the Chastisement. The fourth statement was “Satan enters the church.” Pope Paul VI was quoted as saying the smoke of Satan is already in the Vatican.

The fifth statement was “Cardinals, bishops and priests are on the road to perdition (hell),” and are leading parishioners away from the church. And the sixth statement was “Churches and altars will be desecrated and Satan will lead priests away from God, and there will be no forgiveness,” if sins continue.

Are we beginning to see what is to happen to the Catholic Church, based on Agnes Sasagawa’s comments Our Lady gave her on Oct. 13, 1973?

Apostasy is the denial of the entire body of Christian teaching, and it is defined as a defection from God through the entire rejection of the Catholic faith. And faith is the summation of all that the holy Catholic Church teaches, from the 10 commandments, the creed, the sacraments and the other truths of the holy Mass.

Pope Pius X said years ago that Catholic faith is the true faith and that the modern attempt to attack Christian morality, to propose that non-Catholics may receive holy communion without converting, and to attack the long-held practice of priestly celibacy and the like, has to be eradicated.

He also rejected that “dogmas” evolve and change from one meaning to another that is different from the one that the church held previously, and that “modernism” is the attempt to reinterpret the teachings of the Catholic Church.

According to Christopher Ferrara, the endgame of Pope Francis is to accommodate the church to the world instead the world to the church, and to rule the church and to remake the church in his image, breaking whatever traditions he pleases.

He also says that Pope Francis wants to institutionalize the toleration of sexual activity outside of marriage, not just heterosexual activity but homosexual activity, too. That people living in second “marriages” will now be allowed to receive Holy Communion.

And according to Bishop Gracias, Pope Francis and his collaborators seemingly established that there are “LGBT” people whose identity has been conferred upon them by God himself and to what grounds does the church stand to censure homosexual conduct. (This I never heard before.) It was only through fierce opposition by African bishops, that they were unable to get “LGBT” smuggled into the final document of the latest synod.

Liberal Pope Francis wants to liberalize the Catholic Church similar to what liberal Democrats want to do by liberalizing the Constitution — what Pope Pius X called “modernism.”
