Leonardo Boff, heretic and liberation theologian reveals that Bergoglio - Pope Francis, is "one of us"

Let us not get to comfortable in this Christmas season. Here, we have taken a two day break and now, it is time to get back to business, the state of things being what they are, and very grave, at that.

We have just finished our Lauds, preceded by Matins according to Divina Afflatu, the Office as properly reformed by St. Pius X. We are reminded of this reading from St. John on this glorious feast day in his honour.

"My little children, these things I write to you, that you may not sin. But if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the just: And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for those of the whole world. And by this we know that we have known him, if we keep his commandments. He who saith that he knoweth him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But he that keepeth his word, in him in very deed the charity of God is perfected."

"He who saith that he knoweth him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar,"

A "liar!"

That is what St. John, Apostle and Evangelist has said which is an appropriate lead in to what follows.

John Paul II reprimanded Leonardo Boff. A liberation theologian and a heretic. Maike Hickson at OnePeterFive translates what this notorious heretic has revealed. Truly, the more these malefactors keep talking, the better it is. The truth will not be buried. Boff reveals much about this Bergoglio and continues to reveal himself as a liar, dissenter and disobedient priest to legitimate authority and shows how he conspires to twist and turn truth into a lie.

Q: Liberation Theology of Latin America – one of whose most prominent representatives you certainly are – has now received new honors [and encouraging support] from and through Pope Francis. [Is there now to be] A rehabilitation also for you personally, after your years-long struggles with Pope John Paul II himself and with his highest defender of Doctrine, Joseph Ratzinger, who later became Pope Benedict XVI?
Francis is one of us. He has turned Liberation Theology into a common property of the Church. And he has widened it. Whoever speaks today of the poor, also has to speak of the earth, because it, too, is now being plundered and abused. “To hear the cry of the poor,” that means to hear the cry of the animals, the forests, of the whole tortured creation. The whole earth cries. Also, says the pope – and he thus quotes one of the titles of one of my books – we have to hear simultaneously the cry of the poor and the cry of the earth. And, for sure, both need to be liberated. I myself have dealt in the recent past with this widening of the Liberation Theology. And that [this environmental dimension] is also the fundamentally new aspect in Laudato Si.
Q: ….which is now in the “ecological encyclical” of the pope promulgated in the year 2015. How much Leonardo Boff is in Jorge Mario Bergoglio?
The encyclical belongs to the pope. But he has consulted with many experts.
Q: Has he read your books? More than that. He asked me for material for the sake of Laudato Si. I have given him my counsel and sent to him some of what I have written. Which he has also used. Some people told me they were thinking while reading: “Wait, that is Boff!” By the way, Pope Francis directly told me: “Boff, don’t send the papers directly to me.”
Q: Why not?
He said: “Otherwise, the Sottosegretari (the employees of the Vatican administration, editors [of the Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger]) will intercept them and I will not receive them. Rather, send the things right to the Argentine Ambassador [at the Holy See] with whom I have a good connection, then they will safely land into my hands.” For that, one needs to know that the current Ambassador at the Holy See is an old friend of the pope from his time in Buenos Aires. They have often drunk together mate [a special drink from Argentina, a sort of tea]. Then, one day before the publication of the encyclical, the pope had someone call me in order to thank me for my help.
Q: A personal meeting with the pope is still outstanding?
He [Pope Francis] has sought a reconciliation with the most important representatives of the Liberation Theology: with Gustavo Gutierrez, Jon Sobrino, and likewise with me. I have said to him with respect to Pope Benedict – respectively Joseph Ratzinger – “But that other is still alive, after all!” He did not accept this. “No,” he said, “Il Papa sono io” – “The pope, that is me!” We were welcomed to come. That is where you see his courage and his decisiveness.
Q: Why then has your visit not yet worked out?
I had received an invitation and I even had already landed in Rome. But just that day, immediately before the beginning of the [second] Synod on the Family in 2015, 13 cardinals – among them the German Cardinal Gerhard Müller – rehearsed a rebellion against the pope with a letter addressed to him which then, o surprise!, was published in a newspaper. The pope was angry and he told me: “Boff, I have no time. I have to establish calm before the synod begins. We will see each other another time.”
Q: But also with the hoped-for calm, that did not really work out, either, did it?
The pope feels the sharpness of the headwind from his own ranks, especially coming from the U.S. This Cardinal Burke, Leo Burke, who now – together with your retired Cardinal Meisner from Cologne – has already written another letter [to the pope]; he is is the Donald Trump of the Catholic Church (laughs). But, unlike Trump, Burke has now been neutralized within the Curia. Thanks be to God. These people really believe that it is up to them to correct the pope. As if they are above the pope. Something like this is unusual [sic!], if not unprecedented in the history of the Church. One may criticize the pope, one may have discussions with him. That is what I have often done. But, that cardinals publicly accuse the pope of the spreading of theological mistakes or even heresies, that is – I think – too much. That is an affront with which a pope cannot put up. The pope cannot be judged, that is the teaching of the Church.
Q: With all your enthusiasm for the pope – what is it with these Church reforms which so many Catholics have expected from Francis; but where, in fact, not so much has yet happened?
You know, as far as I understand, the center of his interest is not any more the Church – and certainly not the internal operation of the Church – but, rather, the survival of humanity, the future of the earth. […] I believe that there is a hierarchy of problems for him. When the earth perishes, all the other problems have also been taken care of. But, with regard to the questions within and about the Church: wait and see! Only recently, Cardinal Walter Kasper, a close confidant of the pope, told me that soon there will be some great surprises.
Q: What do you expect?
Who knows? Perhaps a diaconate for women, after all. Or the possibility that married priests may be again engaged in pastoral care. That is an explicit request from the Brazilian bishops to the pope, especially from his friend, the retired Brazilian Curial Cardinal Claudio Hummes. I have heard that the pope wants to meet this request – for now and for a certain experimental period in Brazil. This country with its 140 million Catholics should at least have 100,000 priests. But, there are only 18,000. Institutionally, this is a catastrophe. No wonder that the faithful now go in droves to the Evangelicals and the Pentecostals, who fill this personal vacuum. If now all these thousands of already married priests might again exercise their office, this would be a first step toward an improvement of the situation – and, at the same time, it would be an impulse [and a sign] that the Catholic Church now loosens the fetters of obligatory celibacy.  
Q: If the pope were to make a decision in this sense and direction – would you yourself, as a former Franciscan priest, also again undertake priestly duties?
I personally do not need such a decision. It would not change anything for myself because I still do what I have always done: I baptize, I give Christian burials, and if I happen to come into a parish without a priest, then I also celebrate Mass together with the people.
Q: Is it very “German” to ask whether you are permitted to do that?
Up to now, no bishop whom I know has ever either criticized it or forbidden it. The bishops, on the contrary, are happy and tell me: “the people have a right [sic] to the Eucharist. Just keep doing it!” My theological teacher, Cardinal Paulo Evaristo Arns – who just died a few days ago – was, for example, of a very great openness. He went so far that, when he saw married priests sitting in the pew during Mass, he had them come to the altar and he then concelebrated the Eucharist with them. He did it often and said: “You are, after all, still priests – and you will remain so!”

What is happening is the dying of the Vatican II generation. These Boffs and Bergoglios are pushing hard now to ensure that the evil spirit of Vatican II is enshrined forever and cannot be undone. They know, they will die soon. This is why Bergoglio is searching to find men such as Cupich and Farrell and others around the world to carry on his work. Ironically, though, the John Paul II so condemned by Boff, appointed these malefactor who now seek to bring the Church down. Yes, that is what Bergoglio is doing and make no mistake, these are not just the ravings and rants of a pathetic old Marxist, he knows the mind of Bergoglio because they are one in the same.

Let Bergoglio do this, Let him do his worst. He will then be the antipope whose on words will come true about "splitting the Church." Only a man who has drunk from the breast of Satin himself could say and think such a thing.

May God deliver us soon from these rotten and deceitful clerics and send us a truly holy Pope who will "restore all things in Christ."

Very true, but I think the push is far beyond VII. I'm very pessimistic about the future as I know of no Catholics outside of a small blogosphere that even notices or cares. This includes priests.

We must keep the True Faith & that means we must believe in the promise given by Jesus before His Ascension into Heaven, i.e. that He would be with us until the end of time. We also have Our Lady's promise that she will triumph when all seems lost. 2017 will be a year of great upheaval & the formal correction will certainly produce the worst of PF & cronies, but we know this & expect such happenings.

The One Holy Catholic Apostolic Faith will never cease to be but its priests & laity must take the initiative & forcefully defend Her, so taking sides is inevitable. If a great schism is to be, the CDF must fully recognise the Traditional Orders so that the faithful will be ministered to prior to them being taken over by the Liberals. This is not the time for legal niceties. Tradition must return to the CC & if this 'schism' is the only way to procure the restoration of TLM et al globally & without need of NO Bishops faculties, then it will have been worth all the persecution we have had to withstand from these Marxist/Masonic/Modernists.

Holiday over. I heard on Christmas day that my youngest son, Michael (32), is dying in Bristol. I am flying to UK asap. The sede underground is trying to find a sede Priest to administer the Last Rites to Mikey. It is reasonable to think that the Fatima anniversary next October might possibly usher in the three days of darkness foretold by Padre Pio. Guys the writing is on the wall. The novus ordo church stands fully exposed. Even Cardinal Burke (who is a member of the NWO church), admitted in a recent Vox post that: Cardinal Burke: "If a Pope would formally profess heresy he would cease, by that act, to be the Pope. It’s automatic."

He is correct. The list of conciliar anti-pope heresies, formally professed, is much longer than anybody's arm and we all know that. Time to listen to St. Paul and to let these miscreants and their satanic church be anathema. Sede vacante! The seat is empty! Time to join St. Athanasius and be counted a Catholic! We all know that there is no such thing as "recognising, yet resisting" a true Pope! We all know cursed bergoglio is a heretic and not a member of the Catholic Church - he is an imposter most foul! My beloved son will die having received Extreme Unction, confected by a Catholic Priest with the brown scapula around his neck and on the first Saturday following his death, Our Lady will take him to heaven.

as Pope Peter said a thousand years is one day to God we are at the start of the third 1000 years. Do not believe that God is about to destroy the world. He is going to cauterize it. God's judgement cannot be changed in Genesis He looked at His creation and pronounced it good. Does not one of the conspiracy theorists deny this. It seems so many do. There is only one conspiracy that is to destroy God's work. Let us all believe this the arm of God has fallen and His hand has released the sling. The arrows of misfortune are flashing towards the world.

These are very distressing days for the scattered remnant flock. All seems lost at this point. We must view these events as our collective 'dark night'.
At a time of God's choosing, His Light will scatter the darkness that has enveloped the world and most spectacularly the institutional Church. Until that time, we must fortify and encourage one another not to lose hope but to remain on the narrow path that leads to our sanctification and ultimate salvation.

Sedes are not correct. The papacy is a teaching office, occupied by sinners, some more, some less. The RCC will weather this storm.

Ana Milan said...

Peter Lamb: So sorry to hear of this awful news. Will keep your son in my prayers; also yourself, wife & family.

Michael Ortiz said...

Mr. Lamb,

I too will pray for your dear son!

Dorota Mosiewicz-Patalas said...

Peter Lamb,

not long ago I considered faith in God to be a crutch for the weak and delusional.
Today I still don't understand, and I am full of doubts, but faith is to me an act of courage. I say to myself that even if those who laugh at us were to be right, I still choose the beauty and purposefulness of the "narrative" we prefer.

I pray that my back would be healed, but it only gets worse. No doctor is able to help, and I had to scream yesterday, it got so bad. Let them laugh at my hope and my prayers.

I want to believe that your son could be healed even now, if God so chose, but if not - you will spend eternity with him.

You are right not to despair. I pray for you and your family. May God give you peace and strength.

Peter Lamb said...We all know that there is no such thing as "recognising, yet resisting" a true Pope!


Will keep your son and family in my prayers, but the above statement is untrue.

Pope Stephen VI was a true pope; he was absolutely resisted for his rulings re Pope Formosus (he declared him an antipope).

Pope Sergius III was quite wicked, but he was a true pope. And he, too, made rulings re Pope Formosus that many people resisted.

Pope John XII was a true pope but a wicked one. He, too, was resisted.

Pope John XXII was also a true pope. He was resisted when he publicly promoted an heretical opinion.

The list could be multiplied.

There have been numerous popes who, although true popes, had to be resisted. However, they are/were recognized as true popes.

Your sufferings in union with Our Lord may obtain for him the grace of a happy death. About 6-7 years ago, I was praying for a non-Catholic I knew. Through the grace of God, she decided to become Catholic. I went through so much suffering during that Lent when she was preparing to for her baptism. During Resurrection Matins on Holy Saturday night, all of a sudden I experienced an indescribable joy! Now, a skeptic might say that I was excited about Pascha. This joy was radically different from being excited about Pascha. So that night, I called my friend who was her sponsor and asked him what time was E baptized. When he told me the time, I was astonished. THE EXACT TIME SHE WAS BAPTIZED WAS THE EXACT TIME MY SUFFERING ENDED!!!

You never know - maybe you are his Cyrenian.

Hope this helps you.

Excellent points, Michael.

Peter Lamb said...

Dear, Vox, Frankie, Ana, Michael, Dorota, Kathleen and DJR, Thank you for your kindness and your prayers. They mean a great deal to me. We might differ in our solutions to the current crisis in the Church, but as sincere Catholics we are, in reality, closer to each other than we are to blood family who are not Catholics.
Dear Dorota, I am very sorry to hear of your suffering. You know you are already in my prayers. I recently read an extract by Bp. George Hay on the subject of suffering which made a great impact on me. I sent it to Vox and perhaps he could email it to you? It boils down to God's will be done in all things. Thanks guys! :)

Your precious son, you and your family will be in my Rosary! May Our Lord give you His PEACE, COURAGE, COMFORT AND LOVE through the hands of our Mother. She will indeed take Michael to Heaven!!!

Peter. I will also pray for your son and you. May God always bless you and your family.

On the corruption of the Church predicted by Our Lady of Fatima. I am reading a good book on this subject now. 'The Devil's Final Battle' Edited and compiled by Paul Kramer.

Liberation Theology is a Communistic Humanism which Man is god. God only exist in the hearts of Men therefore Man is a god. Then these heretics add the environment as a god to worship and adore.
Liberation Theology is alien to Christ and His Catholic Tradition as Arianism was alien to Christ and His Catholic Church. Pope Francis is a Liberation Theologian Pope and he has proved this time and again. The Jesuits are so infected with Liberation Theology they should have been suppressed and banned from the Catholic Church. But because of lack vigilance it has infected the Vatican. Now the Swamp of Liberation Theology is behind the Vatican walls and needs to be drained. This may be a catalyst for the Second Coming of Christ. Perhaps it will be the Second Coming of Christ to rid of the putrid perverted Swamp in the Church and in the Vatican.
