  1. Bertoglio has written a pleading to the court for a peodopile Argentine priest Julio César Grassi who raped several handicapped children in an orphanage. Bertoglios defense: The children had imagined it all. Grassi is in prison for 15 years now. Afterwards Bertoglio denied it and lied about it. This man is an insult and a disgrace to every true catholic


  3. I just want to start by apologizing, to all those who have been hurt and drifted away by my Catholic faith, This is not what we as Gods children were meant to go through. I can not imagine what those poor children have to go through now for the rest of their lives. It's true we do have to find a better system and way to weave out the so called leaders of my church ,,, this false prophet's., but my fellow brothers pls don't judge the rest for the wrong doing of others. Like God said , "Go ,I'm sending you like lambs among wolf's " Luke 10:3.. God never said this wolf's were going to be outside the church . Brothers I do believe in "prayer and" action" , so pls lay down your rock, "you guys are in every right to feel that way". Join us in prayer. God bless

  4. i was a priest, got married as per gods word. its better marry than burn in sex. pope isa devil not allowing to marry. he suspended me. will God do that, follow only jesus n bible n not catholic religion led by pope. see me in utube

  5. Matthew 23:9 – And call no [man] your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.
    1 Timothy 2:5 – For [there is] one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
    Jeremiah 23:11 – For both prophet and priest are profane; yea, in my house have I found their wickedness, saith the LORD.

  6. This man is seriously confused there is and never was any Catholic faith, it is a remix of Isis / Horus / Osiris legend – myth imported from Egypt pre BC by the Romans into Europe which there is adequate proof of. Don't they do history in School's anymore ? Mary thats a good traditional Palestinian name if ever there was one 🙂 Even the rubbish kiddie like art the Vatican has is a fake and worthless as the pigments used to make the paints where not available in Italy when it was claimed they where painted, if not Italy's history is a complete fake . The only thing the Catholic church has ever got right is blasphemer's falling off the edge of the world ! and the Catholic Church has at last. Cant these news channels at least use the leader of the gangs My Gang track as background music, Gary Glitter is the real leader the real Pope 🙂

  7. Hello My Dear Pappas Franciscas; Although I Am Not A Catholic; I Am A Christian.
    I Have Been In Deep Prayers For The Church. Almighty God Gave Me A Vision While I Was Fasting And Praying For Over 2 Weeks. I Am Troubled Over This Vision
    But I Think It Relates To The Church. As That Was On My Mind And In My Prayers. I Am Sure You Being The VICAR Of Christ You Can Understand And Interpret It.
    In My Dream I Saw A Large " Egg". The Egg Was Up In The Sky. It Was Spinning Round And Round. It Had A Big " Snake" Wrapped Around It. The " " Snake " Had A Head Like " Dracula" And Very Large Fangs. This Big Man With " Big Muscles" Came Flying Down Out Of The Sky. He Grabbed The Snake By Its Head And " Wrestled " It Off The " Egg". The Muscle Man " Kicked " The Snake With His Foot.
    The " Snake " Bit The Muscle Man On His Foot. The Muscle Man Took A Large Hammer And " Beat" The Snakes " "Vampire" Head Until The Skull Was Smashed And It's Brains Splattered Everywhere. Then Slung The Snake Out Of The Sky. The Muscle Man Then Took The " Egg " And Held It In Both His Hands. " And Then I Woke Up. I Think Al Mighty God Is Going To Help The Church.

  8. Thank you Pope Francis for defending the Church and imploring the timely help of St.Michael and Mama Mary.

    The LIGHT shines in darkness but darkness did not overcome it.(John1:5)

    My Jesus mercy.S&IHMMP4us.Amen

  9. “The disciples came to Jesus and asked, ‘Who, then, is the greatest in the kingdom of Heaven?’
    He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. And he said: ‘Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of Heaven.
    Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of Heaven. And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.
    If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, It would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.
    Woe to the world because of the things that cause people to stumble! Such things must come, but woe to the person through whom they come!’” – (Matthew 18: 1-7) –

  10. It isn't satan attacking your man made demonic "church", pope-man – it is JESUS CHRIST who is exposing your world wide PEDOPHILE ring you've been running for centuries. You want your followers to pray to the "god" you have falsely convinced them to believe in and follow – well, that 'god' is satan himself. You want all those prayers TO go to satan – for dark demonic power to be able to withstand JESUS CHRIST exposing your evil.
    This man – and ALL of these "priests" need to be cuffed – and hjauled off to the deepest part of prison – to await the return of Jesus Christ – where then He will destroy them – once and for all.

  11. And as for the future of your institution, I live in Morelia, Michoacán, México, a very Catholic part of the country. Thursday night at a conversation club with about eight young Mexicans, the question was asked: Do you consider yourself religious or irreligious? 7 of 8 quickly identified as atheist or agnostic and definitely irreligious. One lady, a bit older, said she was religious. This is in the Catholic heart of México. Your institution’s future is as dark as its history.

  12. All cults have the following features in common: One "supreme leader" (e.g. the Pope) who is effectively treated by their followers as a god or almost-god (check), rampant sexual misconduct that usually presents itself as some sort of male sexual fantasy power play (check), active denial of the power and authority of earthly governments (check), and commits acts of violence in either the leader's name or their purported god (check – although the Crusades happened a long time ago but it happened nonetheless). Today's Catholic Church isn't any different from a cult. If the Catholic Church wants to stop being terrible, then it needs to provide the Pennsylvania Attorney General's office with all of the documentation on priest abuse that the Catholic Church has and excommunicate the clergy who have committed these atrocities and dissolve the papacy. Only after those things happen can Catholics bend the knee and ask forgiveness of God. Until all of those things happen, the entire Catholic Church continues to live in sin before a righteous and holy judge. Vengeance is the Lord's, He will repay. Satan has nothing to do with this. He's quite content to watch the entire Catholic Church continue going down the path it is on.

  13. your whole history as an org. shows you are not being attacked by the devil. it shows you are the devil. all the bishops and the pope should resign. new mangement should do away with the non marriage part and allow nuns and priest to marry.
