Is Pope Francis bringing a new church into being?

Pope Francis is back at the Vatican after a whirlwind World Youth Day celebration in Brazil. Not a single doctrine of the Catholic church was altered during this event. Frankly, there seems little likelihood there will be change to any Catholic doctrine in the foreseeable future. Pope Francis even made clear that there will be no female priests during his papacy.
What is the excitement all about? Are the words of the oft-sung hymn “Sing a New Church” about to become prophetic? We are told that the pope has changed the tone of the discourse. He has. But how significant is that change? Let’s look first at the ways in which Pope Francis has indeed changed the tone.We know many of the indicators reflect more personality than substantive change. These signs include carrying his own bags (or, in the case of the trip to Brazil, his briefcase), kissing babies and choosing not to live in the Vatican apartments. There is indeed some significance to these gestures in that it is clear the pope expects others in the hierarchy to adopt much of his way of responding to others. We are even seeing signs of simpler dress and communication among the hierarchy.

We also know of his emphasis on the poor and a return to the simplicity of the Gospel. There aresome who feel he is responding to the call of the conclave to make such moves, but in any case, there seems to be enough support and he seems to have enough momentum to make these kinds of changes and to force or persuade others to join him in this new approach.

Yet the clearest expression of the change in tone comes from the impromptu press conference Pope Francis conducted on the plane during his return trip to the Vatican. The press conference itself represented a dramatic change from the past. Whenever recent popes have spoken with the press, written questions were required from which would be selected a few that the pope would respond to. Here we had a free-wheeling, Barack Obama-type press conference where there were no rules, and Francis seemed willing to respond to any question.

ABOARD THE PAPAL AIRCRAFT  (AP) –  Pope Francis reached out to gays on Monday, saying he wouldn’t judge priests for their sexual orientation in a remarkably open and wide-ranging news conference as he returned from his first foreign trip.

“If someone is gay and he searches for the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge?” Francis asked.

His predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI, signed a document in 2005 that said men with deep-rooted homosexual tendencies should not be priests. Francis was much more conciliatory, saying gay clergymen should be forgiven and their sins forgotten.

what is disturbing about this is the amount of pedophilia in the church has rocked it for decades here is a pope who instead of coming down hard on sexual sins is now going soft. His conciliatory language could be seen as a way to placate the homosexual lobby inside the church which is driving million’s of Catholics away from the church. In todays church we have seen the cover up of the sex abuse which was DIRECTLY ORDERED BY THE LAST THREE POPE’S.  In that context the Popes comments are disturbing. The old position held for the last 1960 years up until the vatican council recently was that homosexuals orientation was a bar to the priesthood because it was to dangerous to parishioners that it would cause a scandal(as it has done even in todays world) and this in itself was a sin. T he Pope not once mentioned chastity he by the sin of omission he  has sanctioned homosexuality.

(NIV, Romans 1:25-27) They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator– who is forever praised. Amen. Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion. 

 

CATHOLIC CATECHISM

 

Offenses against chastity

2351 Lust is disordered desire for or inordinate enjoyment of sexual pleasure. Sexual pleasure is morally disordered when sought for itself, isolated from its procreative and unitive purposes

THE POPE’S COMMENTS ARE AMAZING WHEN WE LOOK AT IN RELATION TO THE CATHOLIC CHURCHES OWN TEACHINGS

2357 Homosexuality refers to relations between men or between women who experience an exclusive or predominant sexual attraction toward persons of the same sex. It has taken a great variety of forms through the centuries and in different cultures. Its psychological genesis remains largely unexplained. Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity,141 tradition has always declared that “homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered.”142 They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine effective and sexual complementary. Under no circumstances can they be approved.

2359 Homosexual persons are called to chastity. By the virtues of self-mastery that teach them inner freedom, at times by the support of disinterested friendship, by prayer and sacramental grace, they can and should gradually and resolutely approach Christian perfection.

what does the bible say

(TNIV, Mark 7:20-23)

What comes out of you is what defiles you. For from within, out of your hearts, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. All these evils come from inside and defile you.

(NIV, 1st Corinthians 6:9-11)

Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

 

In Relation to what the bible says about sins of a sexual nature and homosexuality  the Pope who is responsible for the souls of over 1 billion people has aberated his responsibilty.  Once again the Vatican catholic church or what the virgin mary called the False church at her appearance at la sallete  ROME WOULD LOOSE THE FAITH AND BECOME THE SEAT OF ANTICHRIST.
