Some individuals feel as if Pope Francis can do no wrong and that he is all about promoting peace, unity and security for all. They look at him not only as a champion of moral issues but a trailblazer for social justice for the marginalized. Such individuals point to the Papal encyclical, Laudato Si, as positive indication that the Pope is a man of exceptional selflessness and admirable humility worthy of imitation. However, the very document, even if looked at on a cursory level, will be found to show otherwise; that Pope Francis’ agenda for himself, the church and the order that he represents is dangerous, subversive of individual liberties and assumes the position of the corrector of dissenters of her insidious objectives, just as Roman Catholicism has ever been. The document is highly Roman Catholic, which means it has deep anti-Protestant innuendos running throughout. What is mind-boggling is that individuals can be alerted of specific portions of and even read direct quotations from the document and yet fail to see the sinister plotting of Roman Catholicism to destroy those who oppose her usurped authority and refuse to join in her alliances, religious, ecological, political, social, technological or otherwise. It is as if a spell has been cast over them and they blindly trust Pope Francis no matter what he says or does that exposes himself or Popery. However, if there was any doubt regarding exactly what Pope Francis’ encyclical and one-world agenda are all about, a fellow Jesuit has gone public to set the record straight. “At the Symposium on Ecologically Informed Theological Education in Washington, DC in March 2017, Monsignor Kevin Irwin was interviewed about his work with, and knowledge in, Pope Francis's monumental Encyclical, Laudato Si': On Care for Our Common Home. Msgr. Irwin discusses the significance of connecting faith and science in Laudato Si'. Msrg. Irwin is dean emeritus and research professor at Catholic University of America's School of Theology and Religious Studies.” What comes out of his mouth is absolutely astonishing.
Mr. Irwin had the following to say in response to the question, how can Laudato Si be seen as a document that integrates a number of theological disciplines: “I often say about Laudato Si, it is such a rich document, its also accessible. But it’s only a document that makes any sense if you pray over this document. You don’t read this document. If you read it, you’ll check it off, nice idea; but if you pray over it and allow oneself to be immersed in the kinds of things the Pope is saying about common good, individualism, Sabbath, worship, Biblical prayers, prayers of the mystics. If you allow that to happen I think that that will be a way of shaping one’s worldview and how one looks at life. But I think that’s the ongoing challenge of this document, as an enormously rich document in what we call many disciplines; but it’s an integrative, integral document that I think really would be a profound change only if one really takes it to heart. It should be more than a teaching it should be a conversion document.” The interviewer chimes in, “Sounds like it’s much more spiritual than necessarily anything else;” to which Irwin replies, “Well it begins with Laudato Si, and in the best sense in this age of a lot of spirituality talk, it’s the best of Catholic spirituality’s plural. And when you put that out there in terms of bible, liturgy, sacrament, quoting St. Francis, you can’t do better than that. And all of this is out of the depth of the Catholic tradition, it is not picking up some contemporary feel-goodism; and certainly one of the document’s strong suites is against any kind of individualism, or ‘it’s all about me.’ The pronouns are all ‘we,’ they’re all plural, they’re very Catholic pronouns, and that’s where this document as a spirituality is in the best sense influenced by theology, scripture, liturgy and practice.”
Recurring throughout Mr. Irwin’s response was the idea of plurality above, individuality and also spirituality. The Roman Catholic hierarchy, whose religion originates from and is steeped in paganism, realizes that in order for individuals to so willingly give up their individual rights to support the Papacy’s philosophies, doctrines, false worship and one-world agenda, their minds will have to be under the control of a power outside of themselves, hence the emphasis of spiritual disciplines, mysticism etc. The spiritual disciplines of which Mr. Irwin speaks constitute spiritual formation, which originated from Jesuit founder Ignatius Loyola, which is nothing more than spiritualism, interaction with demonic forces. The stated purposes of the Jesuits are to re-extend Popery and overthrow Protestantism, by any means necessary; and this is exactly the tenor of Laudato Si. In order for nations and individuals to go along with government-enforced Sunday worship, the medium of spiritualism will be used, so that individuals cannot think for themselves and will go along with whatever is proposed.
Please consider the following:
“The miracle-working power manifested through spiritualism will exert its influence against those who choose to obey God rather than men. Communications from the spirits will declare that God has sent them to convince the rejecters of Sunday of their error, affirming that the laws of the land should be obeyed as the law of God. They will lament the great wickedness in the world and second the testimony of religious teachers that the degraded state of morals is caused by the desecration of Sunday. Great will be the indignation excited against all who refuse to accept their testimony.”
“I saw that the saints must get a thorough understanding of present truth, which they will be obliged to maintain from the Scriptures. They must understand the state of the dead; for the spirits of devils will yet appear to them, professing to be beloved friends and relatives, who will declare to them that the Sabbath has been changed, also other unscriptural doctrines. They will do all in their power to excite sympathy and will work miracles before them to confirm what they declare. The people of God must be prepared to withstand these spirits with the Bible truth that the dead know not anything, and that they who appear to them are the spirits of devils.”
“Through the two great errors, the immortality of the soul and Sunday sacredness, Satan will bring the people under his deceptions. While the former lays the foundation of spiritualism, the latter creates a bond of sympathy with Rome. The Protestants of the United States will be foremost in stretching their hands across the gulf to grasp the hand of spiritualism; they will reach over the abyss to clasp hands with the Roman power; and under the influence of this threefold union, this country will follow in the steps of Rome in trampling on the rights of conscience.”
For these reasons it is vitally important for us to receive the love of Christ and love for His truth. “Even him [Popery], whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12.
