When we Catholics pray for you we pray that you will come to your senses and bring peace to the Church. Thus far, God in His wisdom has not answered these prayers. That these prayers will be answered eventually we have no doubt. So we wait.
It is no longer possible to give you the benefit of the doubt. Every day it seems you wish to go out of your way to demonize, demoralize and mock twenty centuries of Catholic teaching and Catholic culture. Every day the Church, already at the edge of the abyss, is being pushed closer to that edge by one outrageous statement, or hateful action, after another. You act like the head of the KGB, silently destroying your enemies and making sure that nothing but opprobrium sticks to the men and women whom you seek to humiliate. Not a lot of mercy being shown in that instance, is there?
Speaking bluntly, we have had some terrible Popes in the past but you are, if not the worst, certainly in the top ten Disastrous Popes in History. It breaks one's heart to have to say things like this to the Vicar of Christ on earth. But when a Vicar of Christ directly contradicts the teachings of Christ then the faithful have a duty to speak.
Nations given to pure evil have been bombing and destroying innocents in places like Syria, but you, Francis, are more interested in the chimera of man-made climate change. You say that you pray for these people. That's great. How about some eyeball-to-eyeball meetings with these evil men stating your displeasure? Instead of frowning upon altar boys who show you respect how about frowning upon the face of swine like Obama?
Souls are falling into Hell like snowflakes under your watch, but you concentrate on trivialities. Stupefyingly ignorant Catholics who have no notion whatsoever about what their Church teaches get no help from you. They get only banalities, cliches and empty sloganeering.
When you meet God at the time of your death, how will you answer for your actions and inactions? I scarcely think God will be impressed by how many meetings you have had with second-rate Hollywood actors or third-rate Hollywood directors. It is doubtful that He will be impressed by your giving audiences to every blasphemer, sex deviate, atheist or child killer who begs an audience with you. But God will most definitely be interested in the way you allowed the sacrileges and profanations of the Holy Eucharist to continue under your watch. True, you are not the only Pope who looked the way while the Eucharist was profaned. John Paul II had much to answer for in that regard. Benedict could have stopped these sacrileges with the stroke of a pen (and diligent follow up) but he chose not to. You could stop these desecrations with a stroke of the pen but you haven't; indeed, you have made it worse, first by letting Hosts get flung around by any Tom, Dick or Harriet at those awful papal rock concerts and second by your plans to allow adulterers and sodomites to receive Holy Communion while in the state of mortal sin. Please know that you will have to answer for this when you have your meeting with Our Lord. Please ponder this.
Your driving Catholics to despair carries a price tag, one too horrible to contemplate. You are still alive and in relatively good health. There is still time for you to change course. But if you keep inflicting upon Catholics dreadful and arrogant men like Blase Cupich, or keep encouraging repellent Modernists like the execrable Cardinal Kasper you may find that you have angered the Faithful to the point of carrying flaming torches to the door of the Vatican. I warn you, this is not so far-fetched as it may seem. Even loyal Catholics have a breaking point. If you keep pushing them to that point do not be surprised if you see those flaming torches coming your way.
You are not dead yet, Francis. God has not called you yet. You still have time to change. You can still undo some of the terrible damage you have done to Christ's Church.
It is your choice.
