VATICAN CITY – It seems to have become a recurring "ritual" for False Prophet Pope Francis to invite religious and political leaders from the Middle East into Christ's Temple. Indeed, Minor Asia and its current war represented the Christ-less focus of the two separate audiences held on September 4th during which the "trinitarian" group met.
Pope Bergoglio first received the former president of the Republic of Israel, Shimon Peres, and then the Prince of Jordan El Hassan bin Talal, with whom he has developed cordial relations that go well beyond protocol formalities. Both were prominent supporters of Pope Francis’ recent visit to the Holy Land: indeed, prince El Hassan bin Talal has been known for his efforts in promoting interreligious dialogue, while Shimon Peres was a key figure present at the historic meeting of prayer for peace in the Middle East, held in the Vatican Gardens.
Under the lie that "most wars today are fought because of religious (and not nationalistic) undercurrents", retired Israeli President Shimon Peres has proposed a new global peace initiative to Pope Francis: A "United Nations of Religions".
Peres said that the Catholic Church pitched the initiative during a 45-minute audience on Thursday, September 4 2013 in the Apostolic Palace. He and Mario Bergoglio last met on June 08 2014, along with Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas, to pray together for peace in the Middle East. Strangely, a few weeks later (on July 10 2014) war broke out in the Gaza Strip.
Prior to the meeting, Shimon Peres told the Catholic publication Famiglia Cristiana that "the U.N. is ill-suited to handle today’s conflicts and that a U.N. of Religions is the best way to fight terrorists who kill in the name of God." He added "The UN has run its course. What we need is an Organization of United Religions, a UN of religions. This would be the best way to fight against these terrorists who kill in the name of faith, because the majority of people are not like them, they practice their religion without killing anyone, without this thought ever crossing their minds. And I think there should also be a United Religions Charter, just like the UN Charter," Peres went on to say. "The new Charter would state on behalf of all faiths that slitting people’s throats or carrying out mass slaughters, as we have seen in the past weeks, has nothing to do with religion. This was my proposal to the Pope."
Nobel Peace Prize winner Shimon Peres further said that "today we are faced with hundreds, possibly thousands of terrorist movements that aim to kill in the name of God. This is a completely new kind of war compared to those fought in the past. It is different in terms of technique but above all in terms of the reasons for which it is being fought. We have the United Nations to deal with this. It is a political organization but it has neither the armies which nations possess, nor the firm belief which religions foster." Because of the immense power religions hold as well as this Pope’s charismatic personality and large popularity, Peres would like Pope Francis to lead the proposed UN of religions: "When I look around me I notice one thing: perhaps for the first time in history the Holy Father is a leader who has the respect of many people as well as the most diverse religions and their representatives. Indeed, he may actually be the only leader they really respect. Hence the idea I proposed to Francis." Francis welcomed the idea with interest and encouragement: he did not commit to it personally but assured Peres that there are Vatican dicasteries that deal with these kinds of initiatives. The Holy See’s spokesman, Fr. Federico Lombardi said, "The Pope spent a long time talking with Mr. Peres whom he sees as a man of peace, and even though no official statements were issued as these were not audiences with heads of state or of government, the long duration of the talks shows that the Pope took an interest in Peres’ proposals and in the information the Jordanian prince gave him on his interreligious center for peace, expressing his encouragement." The Pope explained that “there are Holy See dicasteries in charge of such initiatives: the dicastery for interreligious dialogue and the dicastery for Justice and Peace. Cardinals Kock and Turkson will consider this proposal carefully,” Lombardi said.
The second audience Pope Francis held in the Vatican on the same morning was with the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan’s Prince El Hassan bin Talal. Fr. Lombardi said this recalling the prince’s efforts in the field of interreligious dialogue as the founder of an interreligious center for peace and human rights. “He spoke to the Pope about the work done to combat violence and in favor of human dignity, of brotherhood and of assistance to the poor in a globalized world. This is done by drawing on the common values religions hold, doing unto others as you would have them do unto you, in other words. Prince Hassan gave the Pope a collection of texts from various denominations, edited by the interreligious center he founded.
Francis promised the Vatican’s attention to the proposal.
Prince El Hassan bin Talal belongs to the following organizations:
* Global Leadership Foundation
* Trilateral Commission
* Chairman the United Nations Secretary
* Advisory Board of the think tank Gold Mercury International
* Board of directors of the Nuclear Threat Initiative – Washington, DC (2002)

POPE FRANCIS ON PUTTING ASIDE OLD STRUCTURES AND BOASTING OF OUR SINS
On the same day, September 4th, Pope Francis held a Mass in which he said that "Christians should boast about only two things: that they are sinners and they have been saved by Jesus Christ. It's useless to brag about formal education and degrees because they don't have the power to transform people into credible Christian witnesses, the pope said; only a personal experience of God's saving grace can do that".
In his homily Mario Bergoglio focused on the day's readings. In the first, St. Paul warns about the vanity of those who are "wise" and how "the wisdom of this world is foolishness in the eyes of God" (1Cor 3:18-23).
"The power of the word of God comes from the heart of the preacher transformed by an encounter with Christ", the pope said, according to Vatican Radio. He then added: "The only way to be transformed is by recognizing one's sins before God. It is that encounter between my sins and the blood of Christ that saves me. That's why Paul never boasted of his studies. The apostle only boasted of his weaknesses and sins, and of the cross of the Lord".
According to Bergoglio, St. Paul only boasted of his sins. This is completely untrue. It is not the first time that he refers to the apostle in erroneous terms; on pages 120-121 of the book "Pope Francis – His Life in His Own Words", the Vicar is quoted saying:
The Following day, September 5th, the Pope said in his homily that the Gospel is new and that we should not fear the Church's changes. The Pope explained that Jesus asks us to put aside our "old structures", calling us to "put new wine into new wineskins. And for this reason, the Church asks us, all of us, some changes. She asks us to leave aside the old structures: they are of no use! And to take up new wineskins, those of the Gospel."
Here is the transcript of his homily (Source: Vatican Radio):
"New wine, new wineskins: the ‘novelty’ of the Gospel – and what does the Gospel bring us? Joy and renewal [Novita' in Italian]. These Doctors of the Law were hidebound by their commandments, their rules. St. Paul, speaking of them, tells us that before faith came (that is, Jesus) we were all kept in custody, as prisoners under the Law. This Law, of these people, was not bad: they were cared for, but they were prisoners, awaiting the advent of faith – that faith which would be revealed in Christ, Himself.
One of you might say to me: 'But Father, don’t Christians have laws?’ Yes. Jesus said: ‘I do not come to [abolish the Law], but to fulfill it. And the Beatitudes, for example – the law of love (total love) as Jesus loved us, are the fullness of the Law. Jesus, when he reproves these Doctors of the Law, is taking them to task for not caring for the people with the Law, but making them slaves to so many little laws, so many little things that had to be done. St. Paul distinguishes well between children of the law and children of faith. For new wine, new wineskins. And for this reason, the Church asks us, all of us, some changes. She asks us to leave aside the old structures: they are of no use! And to take up new wineskins, those of the Gospel. The mentality of, for examples, of these doctors of the law can't be understood, of these Pharisaical theologians: their mentality cannot be understood with the spirit of the Gospel. They are different. The style of the Gospel is a different style, which brings us to the fullness of the law. Yes! But in a new way: it is the new wine in new wineskins."
He implies that if people follow all the laws (of Catholicism – after all he's speaking to us Catholics) they become prisoners of those same laws. Jesus rebukes these people (Christians and/or their priests/theologians/preachers), these doctors of the law, Bergoglio seems to be saying; He scolds them for not having kept the people with the law, but of having made them slaves to many small laws of the many small things they must do. Things they must do "without the freedom that He brings us with the new law, the law that He has established with His own blood." This is rather confusing: Christ Has already come and the Gospels were written 2,000 years ago. We wonder what is to change now, and which rules could possibly imprison us since we follow Jesus Christ's Words.
But the Bishop of Rome adds: "Such is the newness of the Gospel, which is a celebration, it is joy, it is freedom." With this statement, Mario Bergoglio is, once again, recreating a tampered Christ Who brought celebration, joy and freedom without a cross to carry. Should we remember that before Christ, a man could divorce easily? Should we mention that Our Lord increased the rigidity of many preexisting laws? Among them, for example, we find adultery and murder which, according the Jesus, are already committed in the heart or mind of the sinner (and not only in the physical and literal sense of such actions). What about the role of suffering and of dying to oneself?
Since, in his opinion, we can only boast about sin – which is not a stain to be cleaned – it is not hard to believe that the New World Pope is intentioned to inebriate with gall the Church through confusion and rebellion. This reminds us of one section within the long version of the St. Michael the Archangel prayer:
"…Behold, this primeval enemy and slayer of men has taken courage. Transformed into an angel of light, he wanders about with all the multitude of wicked spirits, invading the earth in order to blot out the name of God and of His Christ, to seize upon, slay and cast into eternal perdition souls destined for the crown of eternal glory. This wicked dragon pours out, as a most impure flood, the venom of his malice on men of depraved mind and corrupt heart, the spirit of lying, of impiety, of blasphemy, and the pestilent breath of impurity, and of every vice and iniquity.
These most crafty enemies have filled and inebriated with gall and bitterness the Church, the spouse of the immaculate Lamb, and have laid impious hands on her most sacred possessions. In the Holy Place itself, where the See of Holy Peter and the Chair of Truth has been set up as the light of the world, they have raised the throne of their abominable impiety, with the iniquitous design that when the Pastor has been struck, the sheep may be".
Let us now read the following quote from Jesus Christ's message to Maria Divine Mercy on Friday, July 20th, 2012. In this segment, one can read about the New World Religion and the abolition of sin (within the Catholic Church); these are two upcoming elements of which roots can already be observed at this stage.
from Message given to Maria Divine Mercy in The Book of Truth
[…]"He [the Antichrist] will be head of the New World Religion and with the False Prophet, who will head up the shell of the Catholic Church on earth, will work closely to deceive all of God’s children.
The world will soon be presented with the most deceitful lie which is impossible for mankind to grasp at this stage. For those of you who are being given the Book of Truth, these My Holy messages to warn humanity of these things, know this.
So sophisticated will their plan be, that many will be fooled by the loving humane exterior which they will present to the world of their wicked plan. The Antichrist and the False Prophet, between them, are already finishing planning their wicked reign and the first thing they will bring about will be the escalation of the war in the Middle East. The Antichrist will be the main man pulling the strings in the background. Then he will come forth and be seen to broker a peace plan. It will be then when the world will fall under his spell.
Meanwhile the False Prophet will seize power within the Catholic Church. Very soon it will be sucked into the New World Religion, a front for satanic worship. Worship of self will be the fundamental aim of this abomination and the introduction of laws, which amount to two things. The abolition of the sacraments and the abolition of sin. The Sacraments will only truly be available from those priests and other Christian Clergy who remain loyal to Me. They will offer these Sacraments in special refuge churches. The abolition of sin will be introduced through the introduction of laws which will be seen to endorse tolerance". […]
