Why does Francis allow his family portraits to be projected on to St Peter’s?

This rotting corpse of a Vatican headed by this angry old man shouting and banging the desk with his fist is really pitiful. He has nothing to offer and keeps banging his angry head against a brick wall. God is not mocked. Our Lady's Immaculate Heart triumphs. Not this crowd of sycophants Francis surrounds himself with. How lonely he must be, pathetic figure really. Pray for him that he converts …More

He has nothing to offer and keeps banging his angry head against a brick wall. God is not mocked. Our Lady's Immaculate Heart triumphs. Not this crowd of sycophants Francis surrounds himself with. How lonely he must be, pathetic figure really. Pray for him that he converts before his death and judgement.
St. Paul pray for him.

According to Francis' logic Christ is too rigid and demanding.

He has overcome rigidity except when rigidly persecuting Catholics! ( I’m not going to bother to list the type of Catholics Francis persecutes. At this point it’s pretty much ANY Catholic)
Ave Crux
He seems absolutely unaware of the destruction he is causing in the bi-millennial Church...or considers it "justified" because of his personal brand of "mercy", which he believes should override the Ten Commandments and Church Doctrine as being a superior "pastoral approach"
Jeffrey Ade
"Seems."

@Ave Crux ; Your being pretty kind/generous with that comment.
At this point I think he is very aware
Ave Crux
@rhemes1582 Well, yes, possibly....that's why I put "seems" in italics. But I guess you knew that. If he is truly delusional in the psychiatric meaning of the word, that would make him unaware. In fact, I think he believes he is doing the Catholic Church a favor by imposing his brand of "mercy" and "reform" on us. BUT....God knows what He's about, and if He is permitting this, I believe it'…More

rhemes1582
@Ave Crux Yes your right my friend I knew that.
Personally I'm well past trying to find/make an excuse for his actions. With that said ,I understand the reason for your writing in such a manner regarding him.
Happy Feast of the Visitation.
Ave Crux
@rhemes1582 Yes, Happy Feast!....and a First Saturday, at that!

Francis in new interview: "Everything I have done was neither my invention nor a dream.... I picked up everything that we the Cardinals had said at the pre-Conclave meetings, the things we believed the new Pope should do"

Or: "God's mercy is not a gift he gives you, it is himself. It can't be otherwise"
Dr Bobus
Among those Cardinals was Smilin' Ted McQueerick.

Everyone look at the logo for the 2025 Holy Year this homo-loving Pope approved. Todat it is revealed it was created by an artist who is also a masseur, who givens massages only to men, or couples(men), and that he has gay porno on his website, and that he is a homosexual.
This is the state of the Roman Catholic Church, what it's sunk to with Francis.....in the garbage.

Who in their right mind wants a logo like that, or to be a member of the "church " of Francis filled with homosexuals?

Best to ignore it all or we'd go mad. I suppose it would be news if it wasn't designed by such a person!
