Today Michael Hichborn of Lepanto Institute outlined how Pope Francis is promoting goals espoused by communists. Hichborn focuses much on the so-called "sustainable development goals". I have published similar things on my blog, noting how the pope, in various documents, actually calls for one-world government and population control; the latter is code-talk for contraception and abortion.
Well, in order to advance a socialistic one-world government where the government is seen as the master that meets all needs, one must try to usurp the One True God and His Church. That is done effectively by undermining her teachings and traditions. We see today that the pope is taking pot-shots at priestly celibacy and tinkering with the order of Mass. We've seen how Amoris Laetitia insinuates the idea that adulterers can receive Holy Communion.
Of course, at the beginning of his papacy we saw his disregard for ceremonial traditions such as the papal slippers, the apartments, etc. Ladies and gentlemen, while these things seem minor, they are traditions that link the current occupant of Peter's chair to a legacy and responsibility that far transcends what might be his own preferences. Pope Francis thumbed his nose at these. Now we see that these so-called minor snubs were only precursors to much more dangerous problems.
I hope that by now, most thinking people have their eyes wide open. Let us pray and be prepared to speak out.
