Vatican City, November 25, 2014 (Zenit.org) Deborah Castellano Lubov 


Pope Francis made his usual pre-apostolic trip visit to Santa Maria Maggiore on Monday evening, the eve of his visit to Strasbourg, France, where he today addressed the European Parliament and the Council of Europe.

In a communique issued by the Vatican press office last night, Vatican spokesman Jesuit Father Federico Lombardi confirmed that at around 5:30 p.m. Monday night, the Holy Father visited Rome’s Marian basilica.

The Pope, the statement added, remained in silent prayer for about 30 minutes there, he prayed to Mary and brought her flowers in Europe's colors of pink, yellow, and light blue.

POPE AT AUDIENCE : WHAT LIES AHEAD IS NOT 'ANNIHILATION,' BUT FULFILLMENT

Encourages Faithful to Think of Wonderful Realities That Await Us

Vatican City, November 26, 2014 (Zenit.org) Deborah Castellano Lubov 


In the Christian perspective, the distinction is not between “those who are already dead and who are not, but between those who are in Christ and who are not.”

Pope Francis said these words during his weekly general audience this morning in a foggy St. Peter’s Square, adding, “This is the decisive factor, really decisive for our salvation and for our happiness.”

Before reflecting on fundamental questions people ask about the end of this world and the new one to come, the Argentine Pontiff observed the weather was a “bit ugly” and joked that those present were “brave” to be there.

Journey in history

"In presenting the Church to the people of our time," he said, the Second Vatican Council had in mind a fundamental truth we must never forget.

The Church is not a "static, a still reality," nor an "end in itself," but rather a "continuous journey in history."

This "journey" that is the Church, the Pope said, works toward the “ultimate” and “wonderful goal” of the Kingdom of Heaven, of which the Church on earth “is the seed and beginning.”

When we realize this, he said, “Our imagination stops” and is “barely able to perceive the splendor of the mystery which surpasses our senses.”

From this, he explained, some questions, which "resonate in the human heart," spontaneously arise: "When will this final step happen? How will the new dimension of the Church come? What then is humanity?"

Faced with these, the Council's Constitution Gaudium et Spes says: "'We do not know the time that will end the earth and humanity, and we do not know how the universe will be transformed” but its appearance, “distorted by sin,” will certainly no longer be.

“God is preparing a new dwelling and a new earth in which righteousness dwells,” he said, “in which happiness will fill and surpass all the desires of PEACE arising in the hearts of men.”

“More than a place, he continued, “it is a 'state' in which our deepest expectations will be fulfilled so abundantly and our being as creatures and as children of God, come to full maturity.”

This will allow us to have joy, PEACE and love of God in a complete way, he said, without any limit.

“We will be face to face with Him!” the 77-year-old Pontiff exclaimed.

Given this, he said, it is nice to hear that there is a continuity and a communion between the Church in heaven and that still journeying on earth.

“Those who already live in the sight of God can indeed support us and intercede for us, pray for us. On the other hand, we are always invited to offer good deeds, prayer and the Eucharist itself to alleviate the suffering of souls who are still waiting for the bliss without end.”

What matters, he said, is not whether people are alive or dead, but whether they are or are not in Christ.

“Even Creation itself,” he said citing St. Paul, “will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God."

The whole universe, he continued, will, “once and for all,” be renewed and released from all traces of evil and death itself.

“What lies ahead, as the fulfillment of a transformation that is actually already in place from the death and resurrection of Christ, is therefore a new creation.”

“It is not an annihilation of the universe and all that surrounds us,” he stressed, but rather a bringing of everything to its fullness of being, truth, and beauty.

Pope Francis said this is the plan that God "always want to accomplish" and "is building."

The Pope concluded, saying when “we think about these wonderful realities that await us, we realize belonging to the Church is truly a wonderful gift!”

POPE FRANCIS TO MEET WITH INTERRELIGIOUS LEADERS IN THE PHILIPPINES

Religious Groups Hope Visit Will Foster PEACE Between Religious Groups

Rome, November 26, 2014 (Zenit.org


During his visit to the Philippines in January, Pope Francis is expected to meet with interreligious leaders in Manila.

According to GMA News, the Pope will meet with 10 leaders of non-Catholic denominations at the University of Santo Tomas.

“We tried to seek peace and unity and the Pope is promoting the ecumenical movement and another thing, interreligious dialogue,” Fr. Carlos Reyes said, who serves as the  executive secretary of the CBCP Episcopal Commission on Interreligious Dialogue.

Fr. Reyes also said that the religious have actively promoted the ecumenical movement and hope that the meeting will foster “more cooperation, mutual respect and trust among religious leaders.”

Muslim leaders have also expressed their joy at the Pope’s upcoming visit. Imam Ibrahim Moxir Alhaj, the chairman of the Imam Council of the Philippines, said that the visit will help improve ties between Christians and Muslims.

“First, what I can tell the Pope is, I hope the mutual and symbiotic nature of the relationship between Christian and Islam religions continues. Let us Filipinos UNITE FOR PEACE in the Philippines,” Imam Moxir said in an interview with Radio Veritas.

“I’m thankful that I will be able to see the highest leader of the Catholic religion. I’m hoping that it will also be the start for us Filipinos to actively join and participate in our programs,” he added.

CARDINAL KOCH ON ECUMENICAL DIALOGUE IN TURKEY, RUSSIA, WITH EVANGELICALS

Notes Hopes That Francis' Apostolic Trip to Turkey Can Deepen Relations, Prepare Next Steps

Vatican City, November 27, 2014 (Zenit.org) Deborah Castellano Lubov 


Swiss Cardinal Kurt Koch has suggested ecumenical dialogue is reaching new heights under the pontificate of Jesuit Pope Francis.

In a wide-ranging interview with ZENIT at the Vatican last week, the president of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity discusses Pope Francis' trip to Turkey and what it means for ecumenical dialogue and how this Pope’s reaching out to Evangelicals has created a “new situation” for the Church.

Moreover, the prelate speaks on where the Church’s relationship with the Patriarchate of Moscow currently stands, the Pope’s recent reaching out to other Christians, and the increased number of Evangelicals converting to Catholicism under this pontificate.

In addition, Cardinal Koch shares about the commemoration of the 50-year anniversary of the promulgation of the decree of the Second Vatican Council for Ecumenism, “Unitatis Redintegratio."

***

ZENIT: If you could please speak about the situation now in Turkey, in terms of ecumenical dialogue? And how is Pope Francis’ trip there needed for this dialogue?

Cardinal Koch: Well, we have a very good ecumenical situation between the Church of Constantinople and the Church of Rome since the first meeting between Blessed Pope Paul VI and the Patriarch Athenagoras in 1964.

We have a long tradition of mutual visits for the Feast of St. Andrew the 30th of November, [when] a delegation of Rome goes to Constantinople and on the Feast of St. Peter and Paul, June 29th, [when] a high delegation from Constantinople comes to Rome. And now this year, the Holy Father personally will visit Constantinople and we have also this tradition that in the second year of the pontificate, Saint John Paul II has gone to Constantinople in 1979, and also Benedict XVI in 2006, and now the Holy Father Pope Francis. This is a very beautiful opportunity.

ZENIT: What are your hopes and expectations for this encounter, in terms of relations with Orthodox Christians?

Cardinal Koch: First of all, it’s for deepening the relationship with Rome and Constantinople. But it’s clear that the Ecumenical Patriarch has a primacy of honor in the Orthodox world, and in this sense it is an honor also for all Orthodox Churches around the world. But, for instance, it is a deepening of the dialogue of love, friendship, brotherhood … between the Pope and between the Ecumenical Patriarch. I hope that this visit can be a good opportunity to deepen this relation and to prepare new steps in the future.

ZENIT: Where does the relationship of the Church currently stand with the Patriarchate of Russia? What is being done? What needs to be done?

Cardinal Koch: We have another situation because with the Russian Orthodox Church of Moscow, we don’t have meetings between the Pope and the Patriarch. It is always Metropolite Hilarion who comes from Moscow to Rome to visit the Holy Father. I have just been twice in Moscow to visit His Holiness, to deepen this dialogue. But we don’t have a particular dialogue of truth between Rome and Moscow because our international joint commission between the Catholic Church and the Orthodox Churches include 14 different Churches, and the Russian Orthodox Church make up part of this commission. But we have also some collaboration between Moscow and Rome, on a cultural and social level.

ZENIT: Do you think anything needs to be done to further the relationship with the Patriarchate of Russia at this time?

Cardinal Koch: We have today not an easy situation in view of Ukraine and some accusations of the Russian Orthodox Patriarch against the Greek Catholic Church in Ukraine. I hope that the Churches can overcome some difficulties and find a way for reconciliation in this situation of Ukraine. And I hope that the different Churches in Ukraine can give good contributions for a better reconciliation for the society in Ukraine.

ZENIT: What effect could this papal trip have on the relationship between the Russian Orthodox Patriarchate of Russia and the Catholic Church?

Cardinal Koch: You’d have to ask this question to Moscow… It’s clear that the visit of the Holy Father to the Patriarchate of Constantinople is also a visit by the ecumenical patriarch [of Constantinople], who is the primate of honor for all the Orthodox Churches. But what the consequences are precisely for the Orthodox Churches, I cannot say.

ZENIT: Can you speak about the Pope reaching out to Evangelical Christians and whether this is contributing to ecumenical dialogue?

Cardinal Koch: Yes, here we have a new situation because the Holy Father is very open to the meetings with the Evangelical and Pentecostal world and this is a very good opportunity because until today, the door [was] a little closed because some evangelical Pentecostal movements have many prejudices against the Catholic Church and against the Pope. When they can meet the Pope personally and make a good experience, they can overcome some prejudices and prepare a new field for a better dialogue.

In this sense I am very grateful for all that the Holy Father does in the relations with the evangelical and Pentecostal world.

ZENIT: Could you shed some light on the increasing number of Evangelicals converting to Catholicism under (the pontificate of) Pope Francis?

Cardinal Koch: I don’t think that’s the goal of the meetings, to convert the others. It was a conviction of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI and similarly thought by Pope Francis that proselytism is not a way of the Catholic Church and of ecumenism. However, when a person wants to convert to the Catholic Church this is a human right of religious freedom. But the goal of the meetings is to deepen the relationship of brotherhood, of friendship, between the Pope and Evangelicals, and to give common witness about Christ, about the presence of God in the world, and to deepen the missionary dimension of the Church.

ZENIT: Is there anything that you would like to add? Anything that you believe the world should be aware of, be it something related to the Pope’s upcoming visit to Turkey or related to your dicastery?

Cardinal Koch: Yes, we have this beautiful opportunity because before the pastoral visit in Constantinople, we have the feast of the 50-year anniversary of the promulgation of the decree of the Second Vatican Council for Ecumenism, “Unitatis Redintegratio” (21st of November 1964), and this week we have the plenary of our Pontifical Council. And we will commemorate this beautiful event, first with a celebration of Vespers in the Basilica of St. Paul Outside the Walls, and then a commemoration at the Pontifical Gregorian University, with three lectures about this ecumenical decree - Catholic, Oriental, and Occidental - and to see how we can read this basic text 50 years later and what are the opportunities in the future. The very closeness of this Jubilee and the visit of the Holy Father in Constantinople is a beautiful correlation.

EX JESUIT ALBERTO RIVERA AND OTHERS SPEAK ON JESUIT INFILTRATION

The Jesuits (society of Jesus) have totally taken over just about every facet of America.

Here an ex-jesuit priest Alberto Rivera (murdered by the Vatican in 1997 by poisoning) tells of why and how the Jesuits are doing this. We can see the evidence of this by the attacks on our civil liberties and the U.S. Constitution. It's time to wake up. Share this video and and post it anywhere you can. Also speaks of the Kennedy and Lincoln assassinations being plots of the Jesuits from Rome.

RELIGIOUS GROUP WANTS TO BUILD McDONALD'S IN A CHURCH

Published November 28, 2014
FoxNews.com



The McMass Project aims to attract worshipers through the lure of McDonald's burgers. (The McMass Project)

As church attendance falls, one group believes that the lure of a burger and fries might make church more appealing. 

McMass Project, which is the brainchild of Paul Di Lucca -- a creative director at the church branding agency Lux Dei Design -- is raising funds to put a McDonald's franchise inside a place of worship.

"Christianity is unable to capture modern audiences," Di Lucca told NBC News.  "There's a lack of innovation and lack of design thinking in Church communities." 

The multi-denominational group has launched a campaign on the crowdfunding site IndieGoGo and hopes to raise $1 million to build the first McDonald's church.  As of Friday, only $104 has been raised.

The groups says that the money will go toward purchasing a franchise and construction. The group is currently looking for a church to partner with.  

"It's time for churches to engage with entrepreneurship," writes the group on its IndieGoGo site. "By combining a church and a McDonald's we can create a self-sustaining, community-engaged, popular church, and an unparalleled McDonald's restaurant."

VIDEO : http://vimeo.com/112952031

The site states that three million people leave the faith every year and that 10,000 churches closed down in 2013, while 70 million people eat McDonald’s every day. To attract potential donors, the group is offering T-shirts, hats and vinyl stickers “to adorn your laptop, hymn book and more!”

Di Lucca believes that fast food is one way to build faith in the modern era, but concedes that not everyone will be wild about the idea.
"We are aware a lot of people will think this is an insane idea," Di Lucca says.

FRANCE : LE PAPE FRANCOIS SE RENDRA LA OU LES PAPES NE SONT PAS ENCORE ALLES

Rencontre avec la presse dans l'avion de Strasbourg à Rome

Rome, 27 novembre 2014 (Zenit.org) Anita Bourdin 


Pour son voyage en France en 2015, le pape François se rendra à Paris, il est invité à Lourdes, et il souhaite aussi se rendre dans une ville où les papes ne sont pas encore allés: d'aucuns susurrent une ville du midi...

Le pape François a répondu à cinq questions lors de sa rencontre avec la presse sur l'avion de Strasbourg à Rome, mardi 25 novembre.

L'enseignement social catholique

A une question sur le programme de son voyage en France, confirmé pour 2015, le pape a répondu qu'il irait à Paris - incontournable -, qu'il y avait une "proposition d'aller à Lourdes", mais que pour sa part il souhaitait aussi se rendre dans "une ville dont les citoyens n'ont jamais eu l'occasion de saluer un pape". Il précise que le programme n'est pas encore fixé. 

Pour l'éventualité - non retenue - d'une visite à la cathédrale de Strasbourg, le P. Lombardi a précisé que l''archevêque de Strasbourg, Mgr Jean-Pierre Grallet, avait offert au pape François "deux beaux volumes sur la cathédrale". Mais la visite n'a pas été possible: c'était ajouter une visite "en France" à la visite aux institutions européennes. Le pape a dit sa "préoccupation" pour l'Europe, c'est la raison de sa venue, pour "aider".

Un journaliste lui demande s'il est "social-démocrate", vu ses deux discours. Mais le pape proteste en souriant: "C'est du réductionnisme!". Et il explique: "J'ose dire que cela vient de l'Evangile: c'est le message de l'Evangile, assumé par la doctrine sociale de l'Église. En cela, concrètement, et dans d'autres choses - sociales ou politiques - que j'ai dites, je ne me suis pas détaché de la doctrine sociale de l'Église. La doctrine sociale de l'Église vient de l'Évangile et de la tradition chrétienne. Ce que j'ai dit - l'identité des peuples - c'est une valeur évangélique, non? C'est dans ce sens-là que je le dis. Mais vous m'avez fait rire, merci!"

Pour un dialogue transversal

A propos de ses paroles sur un "pacte entre les générations", et sur la "transversalité" - dans son discours devant le Conseil de l'Europe -, le pape répond: "Le fait de la "transversalité",  c'est important. Je l'ai vu dans les dialogues avec de jeunes politiciens, au Vatican, surtout de différents partis et nations: ils parlent avec une musique différente propice à la transversalité. C'est une valeur! Ils n'ont pas peur de sortir de leur appartenance, sans la nier, mais d'en sortir pour parler. Et ils sont courageux! Je pense que cela, nous devons l'imiter; et également le dialogue entre les générations. Ce "sortir" pour aller trouver des personnes d'autres "appartenances" et dialoguer: l'Europe a besoin de cela, aujourd'hui."

Devant le Conseil de l'Europe - 47 nations, 900 millions d'habitants -, le pape a dit notamment: "L’autre défi que je voudrais mentionner est la transversalité. Je pars d’une expérience personnelle : dans les rencontres avec les politiciens de divers pays de l’Europe, j’ai pu remarquer que les politiciens jeunes affrontent la réalité avec une perspective différente par rapport à leurs collègues plus adultes. Ils disent peut-être des choses apparemment similaires, mais l’approche est différente. Cela s’observe chez les jeunes politiciens des divers partis. Cette donnée empirique indique une réalité de l’Europe contemporaine que l’on ne peut ignorer sur le chemin de la consolidation continentale et de sa projection future : tenir compte de cette transversalité qui se retrouve dans tous les domaines. Cela ne peut se faire sans recourir au dialogue, même inter-générationnel. Si nous voulions définir aujourd’hui le continent, nous devrions parler d’une Europe en dialogue, qui fait en sorte que la transversalité d’opinions et de réflexions soit au service des peuples unis dans l’harmonie."

Il avait ajouté: "Emprunter ce chemin de communication transversale comporte non seulement une empathie générationnelle mais aussi une méthodologie historique de croissance. Dans le monde politique actuel de l’Europe, le dialogue uniquement interne aux organismes (politiques, religieux, culturels) de sa propre appartenance se révèle stérile. L’histoire aujourd’hui demande pour la rencontre, la capacité de sortir des structures qui « contiennent » sa propre identité afin de la rendre plus forte et plus féconde dans la confrontation fraternelle de la transversalité. Une Europe qui dialogue seulement entre ses groupes d’appartenance fermés reste à mi-chemin ; on a besoin de l’esprit de jeunesse qui accepte le défi de la transversalité."

Le terrorisme, l'esclavage, l'anarchie

Une autre question a été posée au pape François dans l'avion de Strasbourg à Rome, sur le terrorisme international. Il avait dit, toujours au Conseil de l'Europe: "La PAIX est aussi mise à l’épreuve par d’autres formes de conflit, tels que le terrorisme religieux et international, qui nourrit un profond mépris pour la vie humaine et fauche sans discernement des victimes innocentes. Ce phénomène est malheureusement très souvent alimenté par un trafic d’armes en toute tranquillité." Et il avait ajouté, à propos de l'esclavage: "La PAIX est violée aussi par le trafic des êtres humains, qui est le nouvel esclavage de notre temps et qui transforme les personnes en marchandises d’échange, privant les victimes de toute dignité. Assez souvent, nous notons également comment ces phénomènes sont liés entre eux." La question portait sur la possibilité éventuelle d'un dialogue avec les extrémistes.

Le pape François, qui ne ferme jamais la porte, a répondu: "Je n'ai jamais considéré une cause comme perdue. Peut-être ne peut-on pas avoir de dialogue, mais ne jamais fermer la porte. C'est difficile, vous pouvez dire «presque impossible», mais la porte reste toujours ouverte. Vous avez employé deux fois le mot «menace»: c'est vrai, le terrorisme est une réalité qui menace ... Mais l'esclavage est une réalité insérée dans le tissu social d'aujourd'hui, et depuis longtemps! Le travail-esclave, la traite des personnes, le commerce des enfants ... c'est un drame! Ne fermons pas les yeux devant cela! L'esclavage est aujourd'hui une réalité, l'exploitation des personnes ... Et puis il y a la menace de ces terroristes. Mais aussi une autre menace, et c'est le terrorisme d'Etat. Quand les choses montent, montent, montent et que chaque Etat considère qu'il a lui-même le droit de massacrer les terroristes et qu'avec les terroristes tombent beaucoup d'innocents. C'est une anarchie de haut niveau qui est très dangereuse. Il faut combattre le terrorisme, mais je répète ce que j'ai dit lors de mon voyage précédent: quand il faut arrêter un agresseur injuste, on doit le faire avec le consensus international."

Les péchés des fils de l'Eglise

Dans ce même discours au Conseil de l'Europe, le pape François a parlé des "péchés des fils de l'Église". Un journaliste lui pose la question d'une affaire de pédophilie présumée à Grenade (Argentine), que le pape lui-même a dénoncée. Le pape répond: "Une lettre m'a été adressée. Je l'ai lue. J'ai téléphoné à la personne et je lui ai dit: "Demain, tu vas voir l'évêque". Et j'ai écrit à l'évêque de commencer le travail, de faire l'enquête, d'avancer. Comment j'ai reçu la nouvelle? Avec une grande douleur, une très grande douleur. Mais la vérité est la vérité. Nous ne devons pas la cacher."

Le pape avait dit, dans son discours: "Le bienheureux Paul VI a défini l’Église « experte en humanité ». Dans le monde, à l’imitation du Christ, malgré les péchés de ses enfants, elle ne cherche rien d’autre que de servir et de rendre témoignage à la vérité. Rien d’autre que cet esprit ne nous guide dans le soutien du chemin de l’humanité."

Dans son discours du Parlement européen aussi, le pape a parlé du péché - un mot ajouté au texte prévu -: "Et une histoire bimillénaire lie l’Europe et le christianisme. Une histoire non exempte de conflits et d’erreurs, et même de péchés, mais toujours animée par le désir de construire pour le bien."

Le pape aime saint Joseph

Enfin, une question personnelle: "Vous êtes un dévot de saint Joseph?" Réponse: "… Mais oui!" Le journaliste insiste: "Dans votre chambre, vous avez une statue de lui?" Réponse: "Oui! Quand j'ai demandé une chose à saint Joseph, il me l'a toujours donnée."

Mais le pape n'a pas parlé de se rendre à Cotignac, en Provence (département du Var), seul lieu au monde d'une apparition de saint Joseph: le journaliste, italien, n'a pas poussé plus loin ses questions. 

Rappelons que le 7 juin 1660, saint Joseph est apparu à un berger épuisé et assoiffé, Gaspard Ricard. Il lui dit en provençal, en désignant un rocher: "Je suis Joseph, soulève-le et tu boiras". Le rocher était imposant: il faudra huit hommes pour le faire bouger. Joseph l'exhorte à nouveau. Le berger déplace le rocher et découvre une source d'eau fraîche. Il boit... Lorsqu'il se relève, l'apparition a disparu. De nombreux miracles furent ensuite attestés et la source continue de couler.

TURQUIE : DISCOURS DU PAPE FRANCOIS AU PALAIS PRESIDENTIEL A ANKARA

L'engagement à construire une paix solide (texte intégral)

Rome, 28 novembre 2014 (Zenit.org) Pape François


"Il faut poursuivre avec patience l’engagement à construire une PAIX solide", a exhorté le pape  François à son arrivée au palais présidentiel turc, à Ankara, ce vendredi 28 novembre. Une PAIX  qui permettent à tous les croyants - juifs, chrétiens, musulmans - de vivre ensemble.

Le pape a visité le mausolée d'Attaturc après son arrivée à l'aéroport d'Ankara (à 12h, heure de Rome, après 3 h de vol, 13h, heure locale). Sur le livre d'or, il a exprimé ses voeux d'une Turquie aux "carrefours" des peuples qui soit un lieu de "rencontre" et de "dialogue" pour toutes les personnes de bonne volonté et de différentes "religions" et "cultures".

Le pape est ensuite arrivé au palais présidentiel vers 13h35. Après les hymnes nationaux et les honneurs militaires, le pape a dit: "bonjour, soldats" et les soldats on répondu en Turc: "merci!". Les délégations ont été présentées. Le pape et le président Recep Tayyip Erdogan sont entrés dans le palais, après une longue poignée de main, pour un entretien privé, l'échange des cadeaux, avant de prononcer leurs discours.

"Il faut poursuivre avec patience l’engagement à construire une PAIX solide, fondée sur le respect des droits fondamentaux et des devoirs liés à la dignité de l’homme", a exhorté le pape.

"A cette fin, il est fondamental, a insisté le pape, que les citoyens musulmans, juifs et chrétiens – tant dans les dispositions des lois que dans leur application concrète –, jouissent des mêmes droits et respectent les mêmes devoirs."

A.B.

Discours du pape François

Monsieur le Président,

Monsieur le Premier Ministre,

Distinguées Autorités,

Mesdames et Messieurs,

Je suis heureux de visiter votre pays, riche de beautés naturelles et d’histoire, rempli de traces d’antiques civilisations et pont naturel entre deux continents et entre différentes expressions culturelles. Cette terre est chère à tout chrétien pour avoir donné le jour à saint Paul, qui a fondé ici diverses communautés chrétiennes ; pour avoir hébergé les sept premiers Conciles de l’Église, et pour la présence, près d’Éphèse, de ce qu’une vénérable tradition considère comme la « maison de Marie », le lieu où la Mère de Jésus a vécu pendant quelques années, but de la dévotion de beaucoup de pèlerins, non seulement chrétiens mais aussi musulmans, venus de partout dans le monde.

Cependant, les raisons de la considération et de l’estime pour la Turquie ne sont pas à chercher uniquement dans son passé, dans ses antiques monuments, mais elles se trouvent dans la vitalité de son présent, dans l’ardeur au travail et la générosité de son peuple, dans son rôle dans le concert des nations.

C’est pour moi un motif de joie d’avoir l’opportunité de poursuivre avec vous un dialogue d’amitié, d’estime et de respect, dans le sillage de celui entrepris par mes prédécesseurs, le bienheureux Paul VI, saint Jean-Paul II et Benoît XVI, dialogue préparé et favorisé à son tour par l’action de celui qui était alors Délégué Apostolique, Mgr Angelo Giuseppe Roncalli, devenu saint Jean XXIII, et par le Concile Vatican II.

Nous avons besoin d’un dialogue qui approfondisse la connaissance et valorise avec discernement les nombreuses choses qui nous unissent, et en même temps nous permette de considérer les différences avec un esprit sage et serein, pour pouvoir aussi en tirer un enseignement.

Il faut poursuivre avec patience l’engagement à construire une paix solide, fondée sur le respect des droits fondamentaux et des devoirs liés à la dignité de l’homme. De cette manière, les préjugés et les fausses craintes peuvent se dépasser et s’ouvre au contraire un espace à l’estime, à la rencontre, au développement des énergies les meilleures au bénéfice de tous.

A cette fin, il est fondamental que les citoyens musulmans, juifs et chrétiens – tant dans les dispositions des lois que dans leur application concrète –, jouissent des mêmes droits et respectent les mêmes devoirs. De cette manière, ils se reconnaîtront plus facilement comme frères et compagnons de route, en éloignant toujours davantage les incompréhensions et en favorisant la collaboration et l’entente. La liberté religieuse et la liberté d’expression, efficacement garanties à tous, stimuleront la floraison de l’amitié, en devenant un éloquent signe de PAIX.

Le Moyen-Orient, l’Europe et le monde attendent cette floraison. Le Moyen-Orient, en particulier, est depuis trop longtemps le théâtre de guerres fratricides, qui semblent naître l’une de l’autre, comme si l’unique réponse possible à la guerre et à la violence devait toujours être une nouvelle guerre et une autre violence.

Pendant combien de temps le Moyen-Orient devra-t-il encore souffrir du manque de PAIX? Nous ne pouvons pas nous résigner à la continuation des conflits comme si une amélioration de la situation n’était pas possible ! Avec l’aide de Dieu, nous pouvons et nous devons toujours renouveler le courage de la PAIX! Cette attitude conduit à utiliser avec loyauté, patience et détermination tous les moyens de négociation, et à atteindre ainsi des objectifs concrets de PAIX et de développement durable.

Monsieur le Président, pour atteindre un objectif si haut et urgent, une contribution importante peut venir du dialogue interreligieux et interculturel, de manière à bannir toute forme de fondamentalisme et de terrorisme, qui humilie gravement la dignité de tous les hommes et instrumentalise la religion.

Il faut opposer au fanatisme et au fondamentalisme, aux phobies irrationnelles qui encouragent incompréhensions et discriminations, la solidarité de tous les croyants, ayant pour piliers le respect de la vie humaine, de la liberté religieuse qui est liberté de culte et liberté de vivre selon l’éthique religieuse, l’effort de garantir à tous le nécessaire pour une vie digne, et la protection de l’environnement naturel. C’est de cela qu’ont besoin, avec une urgence particulière, les peuples et les États du Moyen-Orient, pour pouvoir finalement « inverser la tendance » et poursuivre avec succès un processus de pacification par le rejet de la guerre et de la violence, ainsi que par la recherche du dialogue, du droit et de la JUSTICE.

Jusqu’à aujourd’hui, en effet, nous sommes malheureusement encore témoins de graves conflits. En Syrie et en Irak, en particulier, la violence terroriste ne semble pas s’apaiser. On enregistre la violation des lois humanitaires les plus élémentaires à l’encontre des prisonniers et de groupes ethniques entiers ; il y a eu, et ont lieu encore, de graves persécutions aux dépens de groupes minoritaires, spécialement – mais pas seulement –, les chrétiens et les yazidis : des centaines de milliers de personnes ont été contraintes à abandonner leurs maisons et leur patrie pour pouvoir sauver leur vie et rester fidèles à leur credo.

La Turquie, en accueillant généreusement un grand nombre de réfugiés, est directement impliquée à ses frontières par les effets de cette dramatique situation, et la communauté internationale a l’obligation morale de l’aider à prendre soin des réfugiés. Avec la nécessaire assistance humanitaire, on ne peut pas rester indifférent face à ce qui a provoqué ces tragédies.

En répétant qu’il est licite d’arrêter l’injuste agresseur, cependant toujours dans le respect du droit international, je veux aussi rappeler qu’on ne peut confier la résolution du problème à la seule réponse militaire.

Un engagement commun fort, fondé sur la confiance réciproque, est nécessaire, qui rende possible une PAIX durable et permette de destiner finalement les ressources, non aux armements, mais aux vraies luttes dignes de l’homme : contre la faim et les maladies, pour le développement durable et la sauvegarde de la création, au secours de nombreuses formes de pauvreté et de marginalité qui ne manquent pas dans le monde moderne.

La Turquie, par son histoire, en raison de sa position géographique et à cause de l’importance qu’elle revêt dans la région, a une grande responsabilité : ses choix et son exemple possèdent une portée spéciale et peuvent être d’une aide importante en favorisant une rencontre de civilisations et en indiquant des voies praticables de PAIX et d’authentique progrès.

Que le Très-Haut bénisse et protège la Turquie et l’aide à être un artisan de PAIX efficace et convaincu !

LE PAPE ENCOURAGE A ANNONCER DIEU DANS LES VILLES

On sait très bien ce que cela veut dire... Regardez ce qui se passe à St-Louis, Ferguson, aux Etats-Unis. Tout ce chaos a commencé le 25 novembre 2014,  le jour même où a été signé un concordat avec l'Union Européenne. Chaos qui se répandra maintenant dans tous les pays. C'est ce qu'ils appellent une campagne d'évangélisation et qui se fait, en grande partie via l'immigration qui est soutenue par le Vatican et les Imans dans les différentes mosquées. Nous voyons aussi que le Pape se presse à rencontrer les immigrants en Turquie. Le but est bien sûr de tenter de les convertir au catholicisme sous ce dialogue interreligieux. De nombreux centres catholiques ont également été ouverts, dans différents pays afin d'accueillir ces nouveaux migrants.

PAPE FRANCOIS : "POUR LA PASTORALE DANS LES VILLE : SORTIR, DIALOGUER, ET FAIRE LA CHARITE"

Message au Congrès international de la pastorale des grandes villes

Rome, 27 novembre 2014 (Zenit.org) Anne Kurian 

Le pape encourage à « relever le défi de l'évangélisation dans les grands centres urbains, où tous ont besoin de sentir la proximité et la miséricorde de Dieu » : « L’Église a la mission de faire arriver la Bonne Nouvelle de Jésus-Christ et de son amour salvifique dans tous les milieux », rappelle-t-il.

Le pape François a fait parvenir un message à l'archevêque de Barcelone, le cardinal Lluís Martínez Sistach, à l'occasion de la seconde partie du Congrès international de la pastorale des grandes villes à Barcelone, du 24 au 26 novembre 2014.

Dans son message, lu le 25 novembre au soir durant une célébration en la basilique de la Sagrada Familia, le pape encourage à « réfléchir de façon créative, sur la façon de relever le défi de l'évangélisation dans les grands centres urbains, toujours plus en expansion, et où tous ont besoin de sentir la proximité et la miséricorde de Dieu, qui ne les abandonne pas ».

« L’Église a la mission de faire arriver la Bonne Nouvelle de Jésus-Christ et de son amour salvifique dans tous les milieux, sans craindre le pluralisme et sans aucune discrimination », souligne-t-il.

Ainsi, pour le pape, « ce n'est une perte d'aller dans les périphéries ou de changer les schémas habituels, lorsque c'est utile ». Il souhaite que « la lumière de l’Évangile » et « l’accueil d'une communauté » ne manquent à personne, « pour mener une vie féconde d'espérance, de joie et de PAIX».

Comme une mère, l’Église se préoccupe « du bien de ses enfants, sans épargner aucun effort ni sacrifice » et elle est convaincue que Dieu « offre le vrai sens de la vie à ceux qui sont seuls, désorientés, ou qui souffrent des blessures provoquées par une société frénétique et non solidaire », ajoute-t-il.

Le pape conclut en assurant de sa prière pour les travaux et en donnant sa bénédiction aux participants.

Selon Radio Vatican, le Congrès est né « d’une idée développée par le pape François et le cardinal Martinez Sistach ». La première rencontre a eu lieu du 20 au 22 mai avec la participation d’experts en sociologie, pastorale et théologie.

Cette deuxième phase est destinée aux archevêques de grandes villes des cinq continents – dont les cardinaux Jean-Pierre Ricard, archevêque de Bordeaux et Philippe Barbarin, archevêque de Lyon – qui étudieront les thèmes suivants : « de l’analyse des villes comme lieu de vie globale aux rapports entre le centre et la périphérie ; de l’origine urbaine du christianisme aux dynamiques collectivité-communauté dans les métropoles ; de la communication de l’Évangile dans les centres urbains à la pastorale pour les pauvres des périphéries ».

POPE CONDEMNS IS VIOLENCE ON TURKEY VISIT

POPE FRANCIS' ADRESS AT ECUMENICAL PRAYER SERVICE IN PHANAR, TURKEY


"In the words of the prophet Zechariah, the Lord gives us anew in this evening prayer, the foundation that sustains our moving forward from one day to the next, the solid rock upon which we advance together in joy and hope."

Istanbul, November 29, 2014 (Zenit.org)

Here is the Vatican-provided translation of the address given by Pope Francis at the Ecumenical Prayer in the Patriarchal Cathedral of St. George in Phanar, Turkey.
* * *
Your Holiness, my dear Brother,

Each evening brings a mixed feeling of gratitude for the day which is ending and of hope-filled trust as night falls. This evening my heart is full of gratitude to God who allows me to be here in prayer with Your Holiness and with this sister Church after an eventful day during my Apostolic Visit. At the same time my heart awaits the day which we have already begun liturgically: the Feast of the Apostle Saint Andrew, Patron of this Church.

In the words of the prophet Zechariah, the Lord gives us anew in this evening prayer, the foundation that sustains our moving forward from one day to the next, the solid rock upon which we advance together in joy and hope. The foundation rock is the Lord’s promise: "Behold, I will save my people from the countries of the east and from the countries of the west… in faithfulness and in righteousness" (8:7.8).

Yes, my venerable and dear Brother Bartholomew, as I express my heartfelt "thank you" for your fraternal welcome, I sense that our joy is greater because its source is from beyond; it is not in us, not in our commitment, not in our efforts – that are certainly necessary – but in our shared trust in God’s faithfulness which lays the foundation for the reconstruction of his temple that is the Church (cf. Zech 8:9). "For there shall be a sowing of peace" (Zech 8:12); truly, a sowing of joy. It is the joy and the peace that the world cannot give, but which the Lord Jesus promised to his disciples and, as the Risen One, bestowed upon them in the power of the Holy Spirit.

Andrew and Peter heard this promise; they received this gift. They were blood brothers, yet their encounter with Christ transformed them into brothers in faith and charity. In this joyful evening, at this prayer vigil, I want to emphasize this; they became brothers in hope. What a grace, Your Holiness, to be brothers in the hope of the Risen Lord! What a grace, and what a responsibility, to walk together in this hope, sustained by the intercession of the holy Apostles and brothers, Andrew and Peter! And to know that this shared hope does non deceive us because it is founded, not upon us or our poor efforts, but rather upon God’s faithfulness.

With this joyful hope, filled with gratitude and eager expectation, I extend to Your Holiness and to all present, and to the Church of Constantinople, my warm and fraternal best wishes on the Feast of your holy Patron.

And I ask you a favor: to bless me and the Church of Rome.

POPE FRANCIS' HOMILY AT THE CATHEDRAL OF THE HOLY SPIRIT IN ISTANBUL

"The diversity of members and charisms is harmonized in the Spirit of Christ, whom the Father sent and whom he continues to send, in order to achieve unity among believers."

Istanbul, November 29, 2014 (Zenit.org


Here is the Vatican-provided translation of the Pope's homily at the celebration of Mass at the Cathedral of the Holy Spirit in Istanbul.

* * *

In the Gospel, Jesus shows himself to be the font from which those who thirst for salvation draw upon, as the Rock from whom the Father brings forth living waters for all who believe in him (cf. Jn 7:38). In openly proclaiming this prophecy in Jerusalem, Jesus heralds the gift of the Holy Spirit whom the disciples will receive after his glorification, that is, after his death and resurrection (cf. v. 39).

The Holy Spirit is the soul of the Church. He gives life, he brings forth different charisms which enrich the people of God and, above all, he creates unity among believers: from the many he makes one body, the Body of Christ. The Church’s whole life and mission depend on the Holy Spirit; he fulfils all things.

The profession of faith itself, as Saint Paul reminds us in today’s first reading, is only possible because it is prompted by the Holy Spirit: "No one can say ‘Jesus is Lord’ except by the Holy Spirit" (1 Cor 12:3b). When we pray, it is because the Holy Spirit inspires prayer in our heart. When we break the cycle of our self-centredness, and move beyond ourselves and go out to encounter others, to listen to them and help them, it is the Spirit of God who impels us to do so. When we find within a hitherto unknown ability to forgive, to love someone who doesn’t love us in return, it is the Spirit who has taken hold of us. When we move beyond mere self-serving words and turn to our brothers and sisters with that tenderness which warms the heart, we have indeed been touched by the Holy Spirit.

It is true that the Holy Spirit brings forth different charisms in the Church, which at first glance, may seem to create disorder. Under his guidance, however, they constitute an immense richness, because the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of unity, which is not the same thing as uniformity. Only the Holy Spirit is able to kindle diversity, multiplicity and, at the same time, bring aboutunity. When we try to create diversity, but are closed within our own particular and exclusive ways of seeing things, we create division. When we try to create unity through our own human designs, we end up with uniformity and homogenization. If we let ourselves be led by the Spirit, however, richness, variety and diversity will never create conflict, because the Spirit spurs us to experience variety in the communion of the Church.

The diversity of members and charisms is harmonized in the Spirit of Christ, whom the Father sent and whom he continues to send, in order to achieve unity among believers. The Holy Spirit brings unity to the Church: unity in faith, unity in love, unity in interior life. The Church and other Churches and ecclesial communities are called to let themselves be guided by the Holy Spirit, and to remain always open, docile and obedient.

Ours is a hopeful perspective, but one which is also demanding. The temptation is always within us to resist the Holy Spirit, because he takes us out of our comfort zone and unsettles us; he makes us get up and drives the Church forward. It is always easier and more comfortable to settle in our sedentary and unchanging ways. In truth, the Church shows her fidelity to the Holy Spirit in as much as she does not try to control or tame him. We Christians become true missionary disciples, able to challenge consciences, when we throw off our defensiveness and allow ourselves to be led by the Spirit. He is freshness, imagination and newness.

Our defensiveness is evident when we are entrenched within our ideas and our own strengths – in which case we slip into Pelagianism – or when we are ambitious or vain. These defensive mechanisms prevent us from truly understanding other people and from opening ourselves to a sincere dialogue with them. But the Church, flowing from Pentecost, is given the fire of the Holy Spirit, which does not so much fill the mind with ideas, but enflames the heart; she is moved by the breath of the Spirit which does not transmit a power, but rather an ability to serve in love, a language which everyone is able to understand.

In our journey of faith and fraternal living, the more we allow ourselves to be humbly guided by the Spirit of the Lord, the more we will overcome misunderstandings, divisions, and disagreements and be a credible sign of unity and peace.

With this joyful conviction, I embrace all of you, dear brothers and sisters: the Syro-Catholic Patriarch, the President of the Bishops’ Conference, the Apostolic Vicar Monsignor Pelâtre, the Bishops and Eparchs, the priests and deacons, religious, lay faithful, and believers from other communities and various rites of the Catholic Church. I wish to greet with fraternal affection the Patriarch of Constantinople, His Holiness Bartholomew I, the Syro-Orthodox Metropolitan and the Armenian Apostolic Patriarchal Vicar, as well as the representatives of the Protestant communities, who have joined us in prayer for this celebration. I extend to them my gratitude for this fraternal gesture. I wish also to express my affection to the Armenian Patriarch, His Beatitude Mesrob II, assuring him of my prayers.

Brothers and sisters, let us turn our thoughts to the Virgin Mary, Mother of God. With her, who prayed with the Apostles in the Upper Room as they awaited Pentecost, let us pray to the Lord asking him to send his Holy Spirit into our hearts and to make us witnesses of his Gospel in all the world. Amen!

POPE FRANCIS ARRIVES TO ISTANBUL

Pontiff Visits the Sultan Ahmed Mosque, Hagia Sophia

Istanbul, November 29, 2014 (Zenit.org) Junno Arocho Esteves 


Pope Francis left Ankara and arrived to Istanbul this morning at 9:45am. At the airport he was welcomed with an embrace by the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople, Bartholomew I.

From the airport, the Pope made his way to the famed Sultan Ahmed Mosque. There he was greeted by the Grand Mufti of Istanbul and several Muslim representatives.

Also known as the “Blue Mosque” for the blue tiles that adorn its interior, the 77 year old Pontiff is the third Pope in history who visited a Muslim place of worship. St. John Paul II was the first Pontiff to visit a mosque in 2001 when he visited the Umayyad Mosque in Damascus. Pope Benedict XVI also visited the Sultan Ahmed Mosque in Istanbul on November 30th, 2006.

Following in the footsteps of his predecessors, Pope Francis removed his shoes and was given a brief tour by the Grand Mufti, Rahmi Yaran. Shortly after, the Holy Father, with hands clasped and head bowed, spent a little over two minutes in silent prayer. Fr. Federico Lombardi, the Holy See Press Office director, specified that the Pope’s gesture was one of “silent adoration” to God.

Grand Mufti Yaran gave the Pope a blue mosaic with a tulip representing God, a symbol the Grand Mufti said, was “a common symbol” among Muslims and Christians. The Holy Father thanked him warmly for the gift.

As they were leaving, the Pope spoke to the Grand Mufti, saying, “We must be thankful to God, [we must] praise Him and adore Him.”

Hagia Sophia

The Pope was then led to the Hagia Sophia, a former Greek Orthodox Patriarchal basilica that was later turned into an imperial mosque and is now a museum.

After he was given a tour of the Museum, the Holy Father wrote in the Book of Honor of Saint Sophia. In it, the Holy Father wrote:

"Quam dilecta tabernacula tua Domine [How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord] (Psalmus 83). Contemplating the beauty and harmony of this sacred place, my soul is raised to the Almighty, source and origin of every beauty, and I ask the the Most High to always guide the hearts of  humanity on the path of truth, goodness and peace.”

After signing the book, Pope Francis was escorted to the Apostolic Nunciature in Istanbul where he will have lunch with 50 representatives of the local Catholic community and their respective Bishops.

Although 90% of the Turkish population is Muslim, hundreds of people were outside greeting the Pope with songs in front of the Hagia Sophia and along the route of the papal motorcade.

POPE'S ADDRESS ON MINISTRY IN BIG CITIES

"I will speak to you from my personal experience, as one who was pastor of a populous and multi-cultural city"

Vatican City, November 29, 2014 (Zenit.org


Last week, Pope Francis addressed participants in the second phase of the International Congress on Pastoral Ministry in Great Cities, held in Barcelona, November 24-26.

Here is a translation of the Pope’s address.

* * *

Dear Brothers,

I thank you for your participation in this meeting, which reconnects with the preparatory phase that took place in Barcelona last May.  I thank Cardinal Sistach for his introductory words.

Rather than giving a formal address – in part because I would like to be somewhat spontaneous and in part because I have not had time to prepare a formal address -- between the addresses for Turkey, those for Europe [the visit to Strasbourg], I was full … -- I will speak to you from my personal experience, as one who was pastor of a populous and multi-cultural city like Buenos Aires. And also of the experience we had together as bishops of the 11 dioceses that make up that ecclesiastical region. With them, beginning from different ambits and proposals, we sought, in ecclesial communion, to address some pastoral aspects for the evangelization of that urban agglomeration with a population of close to 13 million people, in all the 11 dioceses: Buenos Aires has 3 million at night and almost 8 million during the day, who come to the city. However, in total they are 13 million. It is in the 13th place in the world, among the most densely populated cities. In reflecting with you, I would like to enter into this “current” to open new ways; I also want to help to sift possible fears, which all of us often suffer in one way or another, and which confuse and paralyze us.

In Evangelii Gaudium I wished to recall attentionto the urban pastoral outreach, but without opposition to the rural pastoral. This is an optimal occasion to reflect further on the challenges and possible horizons of an urban pastoral ministry. Challenges, that is, places to which God is calling us; horizons, that is, aspects to which I believe we must give special attention. I will mention only four, but you will discover others, I’m sure!

First, perhaps the most difficult: to effect a change in our pastoral mentality. We must change!

In a city we are in need of other “maps,” other paradigms, which help us to reposition our thoughts and our attitudes. We cannot remain disoriented, because such disorder leads us to mistake the way, first of all for ourselves, but then to confuse the People of God and those that seek with a sincere heart the Life, the Truth and the Way.

We come from a secular pastoral practice, in which the Church was the only referent of culture. It’s true; it’s our heritage. As authentic Teacher, <the Church> has felt the responsibility to delineate and impose, not only the cultural forms, but also the values and, more profoundly, to sketch the personal and collective imaginary, that is to say the histories, the foundations on which people lean to find the ultimate meanings and the answers to their vital questions.

However, we are no longer in that age. It has passed. We are in Christianity, no more. Today we are no longer the only ones that produce culture, nor the first or the most listened to. Therefore, we are in need of a change of pastoral mentality, but not of a “relativistic pastoral” – no, not this – that wishing to be present in the “cultural kitchen” loses the evangelical horizon, leaving man entrusted to himself and emancipated from God’s hand. No, not this. This is the relativistic way, the most comfortable. This cannot be called a pastoral ministry! Whoever does this, has no real interest in man, but leaves him at the mercy of two equally grave dangers: they hide Jesus from them and the truth about man himself. And to hide Jesus and the truth about man are grave dangers! – a way that leads man to the solitude of death (cf. Evangelii Gaudium, 93-97).

We must have the courage to carry out an audacious evangelizing pastoral outreach without fears, because man, woman, families and the various groups that inhabit the city expect from us, and are in need for their life, the Good News that is Jesus and his Gospel. So often I hear it said that one feels shame to reveal oneself. We must work not to be ashamed or reluctant in proclaiming Jesus Christ; we must seek how to do it … This is a key work.

2. Dialogue with the multi-cultural. At Strasbourg I spoke of a multi-polar Europe. However, the great cities are also multi-polar and multi-cultural. And we must dialogue with this reality, without fear. It is, then, about acquiring a pastoral dialogue without relativisms, which does not negotiate its Christian identity, but which wants to reach the heart of the other, of the others who are different from us, and sow the Gospel there.

We are in need of a contemplative attitude, which without rejecting the contribution of the different sciences to know the urban phenomenon – these contributions are important –seeks to discover the foundation of cultures, which in their most profound nucleus are always open and thirsty for God. It will help us a lot to know the imaginary and the invisible cities, namely, the human groups or territories that identify themselves in their symbols, languages, rites and ways to relate life. Very often I think of the creativity and courage that Paul had in his address at Athens. Poor soul … it didn’t go well for him, but he had creativity, because to pause before the idols … Let us put ourselves in a Judeo-Christian mentality … He entered in their culture … It wasn’t a success, certainly, but his creativity! He sought to make himself understood by that multi-culturalism that was so far from the Jewish-Christian mentality.

The third aspect is the people’s religiosity. God dwells in the city. We must go to seek him and pause where he is working. I know that it’s not the same in the different Continents, but we must discover, in the religiosity of our peoples, the genuine religious substratum, which in many cases is Christian and Catholic – but not in all. There is non-Christian religiosity. But we must go there, to the nucleus. We must not disregard or scorn such an experience of God that, though at times is dispersed and mixed, asks to be discovered and not built. They are the seeds of the Word sown by the Lord’s Spirit. It’s not good to make hasty and generic appraisals of the type: “This is only an expression of natural religiosity.” No, this cannot be said! We can begin the evangelizing dialogue from there, as Jesus did with the Samaritan woman and surely with many others beyond Galilee. And, necessary for the evangelizing dialogue is the awareness of one’s own Christian identity and also empathy with the other person. I believe I have said this to you, to the Bishops of Asia, no? The empathy to find in religiosity this substratum.

For some decades, the Church in Latin America and in the Caribbean has been aware of this religious force, which comes especially from the poor majorities.

God continues to speak to us today, as he has always done, through the poor, the “least.” In general, the great cities of today are inhabited by numerous migrants and poor people, who come from rural areas, or from other Continents, with other cultures. Rome also … The Vice Bishop of Rome can say it, no? So many homeless everywhere … They are pilgrims of life, in search of “salvation,” who often have the strength to go forward and to struggle thanks to an ultimate sense that they receive from a simple and profound experience of faith in God. The challenge is twofold: to be hospitable to the poor and migrants – in general the city isn’t so – it rejects them! – and to appreciate their faith. It’s very probable that this faith is mixed with elements of magic and immanentist thought, but we must seek it, recognize it, interpret it and, certainly, also evangelize it. However, I have no doubt that in the faith of these men and women there is an enormous potential for the evangelization of urban areas.

Fourth – continuing – with the urban poor. The city, together with the multiplicity of lovely offers for life, has an implication, which cannot be hidden and which in many cities is ever more evident: the poor, the excluded, the discarded. Today we can speak of the discarded. The Church cannot ignore their cry, or enter into the game of unjust, mean and self-interested systems that seek to make them invisible.

There are so many poor, victims of old and new poverties. There are the new poverties! -- structural and endemic poverties that are excluding generations of families; economic, social, moral and spiritual poverties, poverties that marginalize and discard persons, children of God. In the city, the future of the poor is more poverty. We must go there!

Some Proposals

I propose to you two pastoral nuclei, which are actions but not only that. I think that pastoral outreach is more than action; it is also presence, contents, attitudes and gestures.

A first thing: to come out and facilitate.

It is about a real ecclesial transformation --all thought out in the key of mission. A change of mentality: from receiving to going out; from waiting for them to come to going out to seek them. This, for me, is key!

To go out to encounter God who dwells in the city and in the poor; to go out to meet one another, to listen, to bless, and to walk with the people, and to facilitate the encounter with the Lord; to render accessible the Sacrament of Baptism; to have open churches, secretariats with schedules for people who work, and  catecheses adapted to the contents and schedules of the city.

One succeeds more easily in making the faith grow than in helping it to be born. I think we must continue to reflect further on the necessary changes in our various catecheses, essentially in our pedagogical ways, so that the contents are better understood, but at the same time we must learn to reawaken in our interlocutors curiosity and interest in Jesus Christ. This curiosity has a holy patron: it is Zacchaeus. Let us ask him to help us reawaken it and then invite to adhere to Him and to follow Him. We must learn to arouse faith – to arouse faith! And then not go here and there … No! We must sow! If faith begins, it is the Spirit who will then see if a person turns to me or turns to another to ask for a further step, a further step … But <the issue is> to arouse faith.

Second Proposal: the Samaritan Church. To be there.

It is about a change in the meaning of witness. The quality of the urban pastoral ministry will be measured by the capacity of witness of the Church and of every Christian. When Pope Benedict said that the Church does not grow by proselytism but by attraction, he was speaking about this – a witness that attracts, which makes people curious.

Here is the key. With witness we can cut into the most profound nuclei, where culture is born. Through witness the Church sows the mustard seed, but she does so in the very heart of the cultures that are being generated in the cities. The concrete witness of mercy and tenderness, which seeks to be present in the existential and poor fringes, acts directly on the social imaginations, generating direction and meaning for the life of the city -- just as we Christians contribute to build a city in justice, in solidarity and in peace.

With the social pastoral, with Caritas, with different organizations, as the Church has always done in the course of centuries, we can take charge of the poorest with significant actions, actions that render present the Kingdom of God, manifesting and dilating it. Also by learning to work together with all those who are already doing very effective things in favor of the poorest. It is a very propitious area for the ecumenical charitable pastoral, in which we assume commitments of service to the poorest together with brothers of other Churches and Ecclesial Communities.

Very important in all this is the role of the laity and of the poor themselves – and also the freedom of the layman, because what imprisons us, what does not make us open wide the doors, is the sickness of clericalism. It is one of the gravest problems.

Dear brothers and sisters, this is what the reflection on my pastoral experience has suggested to me. It gives me joy to think that we are going together on the path, and that we do so in the wake of so many holy pastors who have preceded us. I only mention, as an example, Blessed Giovanni Battista Montini, who during his episcopate at Milan took care with passionate zeal of the great citizen mission. In the writings of Blessed Paul VI, when he was Archbishop of Milan, there is a wealth of things that can help us in this. May their example and their intercession, with that of our heavenly Mother, help us to realize a fruitful change of mentality, to increase our capacity to dialogue with the different cultures, to appreciate the religiosity of our peoples, and to share the Gospel and bread with the poorest of our cities. Thank you.

LES CATHOLIQUES DE DIVERS RITES AUTOUR DU PAPE A ISTANBUL

"Le feu de l'Esprit-Saint ne remplit pas la tête mais le coeur"

Rome, 29 novembre 2014 (Zenit.org) Anne Kurian 

« Le feu de l’Esprit Saint (…) ne remplit pas tant la tête d’idées mais incendie le cœur ; [il] ne transmet pas un pouvoir, mais habilite à un service d’amour, à un langage que chacun est en mesure de comprendre », déclare le pape François lors d’une messe avec les communautés catholiques turques de rites arménien, syrien, chaldéen, latin.

Au deuxième jour de son voyage apostolique en Turquie (28-30 novembre) le pape François a quitté Ankara pour rejoindre Istanbul, où il a visité ce matin la Mosquée bleue et le Musée Sainte-Sophie.

Cet après-midi, il a présidé une messe à 16h (15h à Rome), en présence de catholiques de différents rites, du patriarche syro-catholique Ignace III Younan, mais aussi du patriarche œcuménique de Constantinople Bartholomaios Ier, du métropolite syro-orthodoxe d’Istanbul, Filuksinos Yusuf Çetin, du vicaire patriarcal arménien apostolique d’Istanbul, Mgr Aram Ateshian, et de représentants de confessions évangéliques.

Durant son homélie, le pape a plaidé pour l’unité créée par l’Esprit-Saint : « plus nous nous laisserons guider avec humilité par l’Esprit du Seigneur, plus nous dépasserons les incompréhensions, les divisions et les controverses et plus nous serons signes crédibles d’UNITE et de PAIX ».

L’Esprit Saint est en effet « l’âme de l’Église », a-t-il expliqué : « Il donne la vie, il suscite les différents charismes qui enrichissent le peuple de Dieu et surtout, il crée l’unité entre les croyants. »

« Quand nous prions, c’est parce que l’Esprit Saint suscite la prière dans notre cœur. Quand nous brisons le cercle de notre égoïsme, que nous sortons de nous-mêmes et nous approchons des autres pour les rencontrer, les écouter, les aider, c’est l’Esprit de Dieu qui nous a poussés. Quand nous découvrons en nous une capacité inconnue de pardonner, d’aimer celui qui ne nous aime pas, c’est l’Esprit Saint qui nous a saisis. Quand nous passons outre les paroles de convenance et que nous nous adressons aux frères avec cette tendresse qui réchauffe le cœur, nous avons été certainement touchés par l’Esprit Saint », a souligné le pape.

Le pape a encouragé à ne pas lui « résister » mais à « abandonner un style défensif pour se laisser conduire par l’Esprit » qui est « fraîcheur, imagination, nouveauté », qui « bouleverse, secoue, fait marcher, pousse l’Église à avancer ».

« Le feu de l’Esprit Saint (…) ne remplit pas tant la tête d’idées mais incendie le cœur ; [il] ne transmet pas un pouvoir, mais habilite à un service d’amour, à un langage que chacun est en mesure de comprendre », a-t-il précisé.

La messe internationale s’est déroulée aux couleurs des communautés de différents rites présentes en Turquie : chant d’entrée en arménien, Gloria en turc, psaume en araméen, première lecture en espagnol, Evangile chanté en syriaque-turc, prière universelle en français, italien, anglais, turc, arabe, et espagnol.

Pour le chant de communion, l’hymne français « Trouver dans ma vie ta présence » a été suivi par un chant de louange au rythme africain et un autre chant aux tonalités lyriques.

Au terme de la célébration, Mgr Louis Pelâtre, vicaire apostolique d’Istanbul, a remercié le pape « pour ce temps de prière et de rencontre avec vos enfants catholiques, au cours de votre voyage bref et intense sur les chemins de l’unité ».

« Vous avez devant vous la riche diversité des catholiques : arméniens, syriens, chaldéens, latins, qui reflètent la diversité des autres communautés chrétiennes d’Istanbul », a-t-il souligné.

« Chers Saint-Père, nous nous trouvons dans une des périphéries de l’Eglise et votre présence nous réconforte. Nous rendons grâce au Seigneur qui nous accorde de pouvoir accomplir notre mission dans ce contexte particulier, au service de l’œcuménisme et du dialogue interreligieux », a ajouté Mgr Pelâtre.

De longs applaudissements et ovations scandées en italien - « Papa Francesco ! » - ont accompagné la sortie du pape, qui a rejoint le Phanar, siège du patriarcat œcuménique de Constantinople, pour une prière œcuménique avec le patriarche Bartholomaios.

TURQUIE : LE PAPE APPELLE LES CHRETIENS A L'OBEISSANCE A L'ESPRIT SAINT


L’Esprit Saint est l’âme de l’Église. Sauf que ce St-Esprit n'est pas de Dieu, mais du diable. Dieu nous a appelé à nous séparer du monde, à ne pas marcher selon le coeur des nations, mais à être UN avec Lui seul et à marcher selon ses lois sacrées. Tout ce que nous voyons, sous cet oecuménisme et ce dialogue interreligieux sont des blasphèmes devant Dieu et un conte de fée pour ceux qui n'ont pas l'amour de la vérité. Le seul but de Satan est de conquérir l'âme de la multitude. Sous cette Babylone qui se dit chrétienne, alors que c'est la plus grosse secte au monde, l'Eglise Catholique Romaine entraîne vers les ténèbres des milliers de personnes qui sont séduits par son message de PAIX, de RECONCILIATION et d'UNITE. Gardez-vous d'être trompés par ce faux-prophète qui se croit au-dessus de Dieu, mais qui n'est qu'un homme mortel possédé par des esprits impurs, afin s'il était possible de séduire même les élus.

Homélie en la cathédrale du Saint-Esprit à Istanbul (texte intégral)

Rome, 29 novembre 2014 (Zenit.org) Pape François 


« L’Esprit Saint est l’âme de l’Église », souligne le pape François lors de la messe qu’il a célébrée ce 29 novembre 2014 à Istanbul : « Il donne la vie, il suscite les différents charismes qui enrichissent le peuple de Dieu et surtout, il crée l’unité entre les croyants. »

A.K.

Homélie du pape François

À l’homme assoiffé de salut, Jésus dans l’Évangile se présente comme la source où puiser, le rocher d’où le Père fait jaillir des fleuves d’eau vive pour tous ceux qui croient en lui (cf. Jn 7, 38). Avec cette prophétie, proclamée publiquement à Jérusalem, Jésus annonce à l’avance le don de l’Esprit Saint que recevront ses disciples après sa glorification, c’est-à-dire sa mort et sa résurrection (cf. v. 39).

L’Esprit Saint est l’âme de l’Église. Il donne la vie, il suscite les différents charismes qui enrichissent le peuple de Dieu et surtout, il crée l’unité entre les croyants : de beaucoup il fait un seul corps, le corps du Christ. Toute la vie et la mission de l’Église dépendent de l’Esprit Saint ; c’est lui qui réalise toute chose.

La même profession de foi, comme nous le rappelle saint Paul dans la première lecture d’aujourd’hui, est possible seulement parce qu’elle est suggérée par l’Esprit Saint : « Personne n’est capable de dire : “Jésus est Seigneur” sinon dans l’Esprit Saint » (1 Co 12, 3b). Quand nous prions, c’est parce que l’Esprit Saint suscite la prière dans notre cœur. Quand nous brisons le cercle de notre égoïsme, que nous sortons de nous-mêmes et nous approchons des autres pour les rencontrer, les écouter, les aider, c’est l’Esprit de Dieu qui nous a poussés. Quand nous découvrons en nous une capacité inconnue de pardonner, d’aimer celui qui ne nous aime pas, c’est l’Esprit Saint qui nous a saisis. Quand nous passons outre les paroles de convenance et que nous nous adressons aux frères avec cette tendresse qui réchauffe le cœur, nous avons été certainement touchés par l’Esprit Saint.

C’est vrai, l’Esprit Saint suscite les différents charismes dans l’Église ; apparemment, cela semble créer du désordre, mais en réalité, sous sa conduite, cela constitue une immense richesse, parce que l’Esprit Saint est l’Esprit d’unité, qui ne signifie pas uniformité. Seul l’Esprit Saint peut susciter la diversité, la multiplicité et, en même temps, opérer l’unité. Quand nous voulons faire la diversité, et que nous nous arrêtons sur nos particularismes et sur nos exclusivismes, nous apportons la division ; et quand nous voulons faire l’unité selon nos desseins humains, nous finissons par apporter l’uniformité et l’homologation. Si au contraire, nous nous laissons guider par l’Esprit, la richesse, la variété, la diversité ne deviennent jamais conflit, parce que Lui nous pousse à vivre la variété dans la communion de l’Église.

La multitude des membres et des charismes trouve son principe harmonisateur dans l’Esprit du Christ, que le Père a envoyé et qu’il continue d’envoyer, pour accomplir l’unité entre les croyants. L’Esprit Saint fait l’unité de l’Église : unité dans la foi, unité dans la charité, unité dans la cohésion intérieure. L’Église et les Églises sont appelées à se laisser guider par l’Esprit Saint, en se plaçant dans une attitude d’ouverture, de docilité et d’obéissance. C’est Lui qui harmonise l’Eglise. Il me vient à l’Esprit la belle parole de saint Basile le grand : Ipse armonia est - lui-même est l’harmonie !

Il s’agit d’une perspective d’espérance, mais en même temps laborieuse, puisqu’il y a toujours en nous la tentation de résister à l’Esprit Saint, parce qu’il bouleverse, parce qu’il secoue, il fait marcher, il pousse l’Église à avancer. Et il est toujours plus facile et plus commode de se caler dans ses propres positions statiques et inchangées. En réalité, l’Église se montre fidèle à l’Esprit Saint dans la mesure où elle n’a pas la prétention de le régler ni de le domestiquer. Et nous, chrétiens, nous devenons d’authentiques disciples-missionnaires, capables d’interpeller les consciences, si nous abandonnons un style défensif pour nous laisser conduire par l’Esprit. Il est fraîcheur, imagination, nouveauté.

Nos défenses peuvent se manifester par le retranchement excessif sur nos idées, sur nos forces – mais ainsi nous glissons dans le pélagianisme –, ou par une attitude d’ambition et de vanité. Ces mécanismes défensifs nous empêchent de comprendre vraiment les autres et de nous ouvrir à un dialogue sincère avec eux. Mais l’Église, née de la Pentecôte, reçoit en consigne le feu de l’Esprit Saint, qui ne remplit pas tant la tête d’idées mais incendie le cœur ; elle est investie du vent de l’Esprit qui ne transmet pas un pouvoir, mais habilite à un service d’amour, à un langage que chacun est en mesure de comprendre.

Sur notre chemin de foi et de vie fraternelle, plus nous nous laisserons guider avec humilité par l’Esprit du Seigneur, plus nous dépasserons les incompréhensions, les divisions et les controverses et plus nous serons signes crédibles d’unité et de paix. Nous serons des témoins crédibles que notre Seigneur est vivant.

Avec cette joyeuse certitude, je vous salue tous avec affection, chers frères et sœurs : le Patriarche Syro-Catholique, le Président de la Conférence épiscopale ; le Vicaire apostolique Monseigneur Pelâtre, les autres Évêques et Exarques, les prêtres et les diacres, les personnes consacrées et les fidèles laïcs, appartenant aux différentes communautés et aux différents rites de l’Église catholique. Je désire saluer avec une fraternelle affection le Patriarche de Constantinople, Sa Sainteté Bartholomaios Ier, le Métropolite Syro-Orthodoxe, le Vicaire Patriarcal Arménien Apostolique et les représentants des Communautés protestantes, qui ont voulu prier avec nous durant cette célébration. Je leur exprime ma reconnaissance pour ce geste fraternel.

J’envoie une pensée affectueuse au Patriarche arménien apostolique Mesrob II, en l’assurant de ma prière.

Frères et sœurs, tournons notre pensée vers la Vierge Marie, Mère de Dieu. Avec elle qui a prié dans le cénacle avec les Apôtres dans l’attente de la Pentecôte, prions le Seigneur pour qu’il envoie le Saint Esprit dans nos cœurs et nous rende témoins de son Évangile dans le monde entier. Amen !

POPE PRAYS IN ISTANBUL MOSQUE IN NEW “OUTREACH,” PRAYS FACING MECCA

Muslim prayers facing the direction of the ever present sun as it rises in the East. What the Bible says :

"And he brought me into the inner court of the Lord's house, and, behold, at the door of the temple of the Lord, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with their backs toward the temple of the Lord, and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped the sun toward the east.

Then he said unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? Is it a light thing to the house of Judah that they commit the abominations which they commit here? for they have filled the land with violence, and have returned to provoke me to anger: and, lo, they put the branch to their nose.

Therefore will I also deal in fury: mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity: and though they cry in mine ears with a loud voice, yet will I not hear them."
Ezechiel 8: 16-18

Dhimmitude in the Churches Pope



Looks like the leader of the Catholic Church is preparing his flock for the next step. The Pope faced …Mecca while submitting in the Blue Mosque. Why face Mecca? Have we ever seen a cleric from Al Azhar University face the Vatican? Ever? Even when they slaughter Christians, they never face Bethlehem or the Vatican.

Why doesn’t this craven quisling just convert already and put millions of his followers out of their collective misery?
“Outreach”: the West’s word for submission.

Pope prays in Istanbul mosque in new outreach, AP, November 29, 2014 (thanks to Christian)

ISTANBUL (AP) — Pope Francis stood Saturday for two minutes of silent prayer facing east in one of Turkey’s most important mosques, a powerful vision of Christian-Muslim understanding at a time when neighboring countries are experiencing violent Islamic assault on Christians and religious minorities.



  His head bowed, eyes closed and hands clasped in front of him, Francis prayed alongside the Grand Mufti of Istanbul, Rahmi Yaran, in the 17th-century Sultan Ahmet mosque, shifting gears to religious concerns on the second day of his three-day visit to Turkey.

May Allah accept it,” Yaran told the pope of their prayer.

The Vatican spokesman, Rev. Federico Lombardi called it a moment of “silent adoration.” Lombardi said Francis told the mufti twice that Christians and Muslims must “adore” God and not just praise and glorify him.

It was a remarkably different atmosphere from Francis’ first day in Turkey, when the simple and frugal pope was visibly uncomfortable with the pomp and protocol required of him for the state visit part of his trip. With President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s mega-palace, honor guard and horseback escort now behind him, Francis got down to the business of being pope, showing respect to Muslim leaders, celebrating Mass for Istanbul’s tiny Catholic community and meeting with the spiritual leader of the world’s 300 million Orthodox Christians.

Francis bowed before Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I and asked him “to bless me and the church of Rome” at the end of an ecumenical service Saturday evening. The Orthodox leader obliged, kissing Francis’ bowed head. The two major branches of Christianity represented by Bartholomew and Francis split in 1054 over differences on the primacy of the papacy, giving particular resonance to Francis’ display of deference.

Francis’ visit comes at an exceedingly tense time for Turkey, with Islamic State militants grabbing territory next door in Syria and Iraq and sending some 1.6 million refugees fleeing across the border. Some refugees were expected to attend Francis’ final event on Sunday before he returns to Rome.

Francis nodded, smiled and looked up in awe as Yaran gave him a tour of the Blue Mosque, famed for its elaborate blue tiles and cascading domes. Presenting the pope with a blue, tulip-designed tile, Yaran said he prayed to God that his visit would “contribute to the world getting along well and living in PEACE.”

“We are in need of prayers. The world really needs prayers,” Yaran said.

Pope Francis prays in Istanbul’s Blue Mosque

In this photo provided by Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano, Pope Francis joins Grand Mufti …

Francis was following in the footsteps of Pope Benedict XVI, who visited Turkey in 2006 amid heightened Christian-Muslim tensions over a now-infamous papal speech linking violence with the Prophet Mohammed. The Vatican added the stop at the Blue Mosque at the last minute to show Benedict’s respect for Muslims, a gesture that was greatly appreciated by Turks.

The Vatican also acted to avoid offense to its Muslim hosts this time around by moving up Francis’ visit to the mosque so it wouldn’t coincide with noon prayers.

After he left, Francis walked a short distance to tour the nearby Haghia Sofia, which was the main Byzantine church in Constantinople — present-day Istanbul — before being turned into a mosque following the Muslim conquest of the city in 1453. The Haghia Sophia is now a museum, although some Islamic groups want it to be converted back into a mosque.

Pope Paul VI, who made the first-ever papal visit to Turkey in 1967, fell to his knees in prayer inside Haghia Sophia, triggering protests by Turks who claimed Paul had violated the secular nature of the domed complex. Francis avoided any religious actions inside.

Halfway through his tour, the Muslim call for prayer echoed off Haghia Sophia’s marble walls, an evocative moment that symbolized the crossroads of the Ottoman and Roman empires, East and West, which Istanbul represents.

Museum director Hayrullah Cengiz pointed to a niche with a Byzantine fresco of the Virgin Mary holding an infant Jesus, saying it was his favorite corner because the area also features Arabic writings of the names of the Prophet Mohammed and Allah.
“They are all together,” Cengiz said.

Later Saturday, Bartholomew and Francis presided over an ecumenical prayer service at the Orthodox patriarchate on the eve of the feast of St. Andrew which both will celebrate Sunday.

Their embrace at the end of Saturday’s service was reminiscent of their meeting in May in the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem, when Francis bowed down and kissed Bartholomew’s hand.

Pope Francis said that “It is almost impossible to hold a dialogue with ISIS (“Islamic State” terrorist organization), but that the world should not close the door in the face of talks with the organization.”

The Pope said those words aboard his plane following a visit to France, where he spoke before the European Union’s Parliament.

POPE FRANCIS DISCUSSES THE END OF THE WORLD

By Athena Yenko | November 28, 2014 2:52 PM EST

Pope Francis addresses humans' ancient question on when and how the end of the world will take place. On Nov 27, he addressed pilgrims during his weekly General Audience in St Peter's Square.


Reuters/Giampiero Sposito

Pope Francis leaves after leading a thanksgiving mass for Canadian Saints in St.Peter's Basilica at the Vatican, October 12, 2014.

Pope Francis said people had been spontaneously thinking about how the final passage will take place and what will happen to humanity and to the world that surrounds humans. He said these questions exist and, in fact, even the disciples of Jesus had the very same questions. He added these questions are ancient human questions.

He said even the Church knows no answer to these questions. Church leaders do not know the time for the "consummation of the earth and of humanity." Yes, the Earth is already deformed by sin and this world shall pass away. However, God promised a new dwelling place and a new Earth is being prepared; in this new world, justice will abide and God shall answer and quenched humans' longing for PEACE - Pope Francis highlighted quoting the Second Vatican Council's Pastoral Constitution on the Church in the Modern World.


With this, Pope Francis said, the end of the world is not actually a destruction of the world but rather a transformation to a new truthful and beautiful universe. "It is not an annihilation of the universe and all that surrounds us, rather it brings everything to its fullness of being, truth and beauty," the Pope told the pilgrims.

The Church shall evolve towards this transformation, towards the "new Jerusalem," or "Paradise." He emphasised this transformation is more than a place but a state of being. "We will all find ourselves up there! All of us in heaven," - thinking this way strengthens our soul, he said.

Read Pope Francis' full address.

In his mass in Casa Santa Marta on Nov 28, he had also spoken in the same tune. He spoke of the fall of Babylon and Jerusalem from which the First Reading from Revelation and the Gospel from St Luke Chapter 21 highlighted the end of this world. He said these two cities fell for different reasons.

Babylon fell because of its corruption, and corrupt culture makes people believe they were already in heaven - such is also the case at present. Babylon symbolises every people, culture and society who turned away from God.

Jerusalem fell because it was distracted. He said Jesus was knocking at Jerusalem's door but it was not willing to receive Jesus.

The Pope said, people should ask whether they are like the corrupt Babylon or the distracted Jerusalem. He said with many people and nations living with hatred and spiritual worldliness, the end times becomes true. "All of this will fall! Let us ask the Lord for the grace to be prepared for the banquet that awaits us," the Pope said.

POPE'S ANTI-SLAVERY INITIATIVE GETS NEW SUPPORT FROM HINDU, BUDDHIST, JEWS AND MUSLIMS

And other lie from this corrupt catholic church who use so many slaves for centuries, who are behind prostitution, LGBT agenda, etc. To see all these churches making agreement with Rome who persecuted so many peoples since Constantine and the Council of Trent until today, what can I say, knowing what's coming for the next years under the supremacy of this Catholic Church and the Jesuit Pope of Rome? They're all unite to bring our destruction. Hell will be a good place for all these men who corrupt their soul for the enemy of God.

VATICAN CITY — Religious leaders from a half-dozen faiths signed a new Vatican initiative Tuesday to end modern-day slavery by 2020, declaring that human trafficking, organ trafficking and forced labor and prostitution are crimes against humanity.

Pope Francis was joined by the Hindu guru Mata Amritanandamayi, known as Amma, as well as Buddhist, Anglican, Orthdox, Jewish, Shiite and Sunni Muslim leaders in signing a joint declaration at an unusually high-profile ceremony inside the Vatican walls.

The declaration commits the signatories to do everything in their power within their faith communities to work to free the estimated 35 million people enslaved across the world by 2020.

"In the eyes of God, each human being is a free person, whether girl, boy, woman or man, and is destined to exist for the good of all in equality and fraternity," the declaration read.

Francis has made eliminating modern-day slavery one of the key priorities of his pontificate, inspired by his ministry in the slums of Buenos Aires. Earlier this year, the Vatican launched the Global Freedom Network, a multifaith initiative to encourage governments, businesses, educational and faith institutions to rid their supply chains of slave labor.

One of the network's founding members, the Walk Free Foundation, estimates that five countries account for 61 percent of the world's population living in slavery: India, with an estimated 14.2 million people enslaved, China, Pakistan, Uzbekistan, and Russia.

Tuesday's ceremony, held in a palazzo in the Vatican gardens, added more faith leaders onto the network's initial roster. Francis sat between Amma, the ebullient Indian guru known for her marathon sessions hugging complete strangers, and the small, bald Sister Chan Khong, the first ordained monastic disciple of Zen Master Thich Hnat Hanh, a Vietnamese Buddhist monk and peace activist.

Alongside them was the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, head of the 77 million-strong Anglican Communion, and Grand Ayatollah Mohammad Taqi al-Modarresi of Iran. Also present was a representative of Mohamed Ahmed El-Tayeb, grand imam of Al-Azhar University, one of the oldest and most revered centers of religious learning for Sunni Muslims.

Their speeches were remarkable in demonstrating how different faiths all abhor slavery, but there were also some differences of opinion.

The Anglican members of the network insisted that the declaration refer to "forced prostitution," to highlight that more and more prostitutes today are victims of human trafficking and are not prostituting themselves by choice. Francis, however, believes no one willingly goes into prostitution.

In the end, the declaration pulled off a compromise with a strategic use of commas to declare that: "Modern slavery, in terms of human trafficking, forced labor and prostitution, organ trafficking and any relationship that fails to respect the fundamental conviction that all people are equal and have the same freedom and dignity, is a crime against humanity."

ISRAËL : NEW BILL WILL DECLARE SHABBAT AN OFFICIAL DAY OF REST

Could be an official bill by the state of Israël, but not biblical.


MKs Ruth Calderon (Yesh Atid) and Elazar Stern (Hatnua) on Wednesday submitted a bill preserving Shabbat as a day of rest dedicated to culture, leisure and entertainment while reducing consumer commercial activities.

The bill stipulates that Shabbat will be recognized as Israel’s official day of rest. Public institutions such as museums, zoos, cultural institutions and national parks will be permitted to open on Shabbat as part of the bill. = According to the Bible, all these places are not suppose to be open on the Shabbat day.

CHRISTIANS ARE CALLED TO BE PEACEMAKERS AND TO BUILD JUST PEACE



© WCC/Magnus Aronson

02 December 2014

Pilgrimage towards PEACE and JUSTICE formed the theme of remarks opening the 5-day Ecumenical Peace Consultation in Sigtuna, Sweden. Rev. Dr Olav Fykse Tveit, general secretary of the World Council of Churches (WCC) invited 80 participants from all over the world to join in a common journey of hope.

“We are on a Pilgrimage of JUSTICE and PEACE. We are in the one ecumenical movement together,” said Tveit. We are seeking the visible expression of our unity.” In our time, he added, we too “are particularly called to find new expressions of our unity in Christian solidarity. This solidarity is a way to just PEACE,” a way to “solidarity with all, regardless of faith.”

Tveit added: “This consultation is one of the means by which we are seeking to give further form and content to the Pilgrimage of JUSTICE and PEACE, and to determine how we might practically travel together on this journey.”

Tveit concluded, “Just PEACE in a comprehensive sense requires that just peace be established as an end of armed conflicts. Christians are called to be peacemakers and to build Just PEACE. That means that we need to be peace builders, building the Shalom/Salaam in the wider and deeper sense.“

Rev. Dr Anders Wejryd, Archbishop emeritus and Europe president of the World Council of Churches, underlined the message: “Religion is dangerous – and wonderful. Religion can let lose the best and the worst in humankind. Maybe it is not so much because of religion per se as it is because of humankind.”

In a video message to the PEACE Consultation, Dr Agnes Abuom, moderator of the World Council of Churches, said: “It is only through PEACE we can bring development and prosperity.”

Abuom added in her message to the consultation: “Reconciliation will cost. It requires sacrifice on all sides of any conflict.”

Leonardo Emberti Gialloreti from the Sant'Egidio community said in his presentation: “PEACE has to be a passion, not a profession! Blessed are the peacemakers!”

The WCC consultation and workshop on Peace building and Advocacy for Just PEACE, 1-5 December, is hosted by the Church of Sweden, Uniting Church in Sweden, and Christian Council of Sweden. It brings together more than 80 ecumenical advocacy experts, church leaders, as well as civil society and United Nations partners.

POPE FRANCIS AND RICK WARREN TO UNITE FOR GLOBAL CHRISLAM CONFERENCE

NTEB News Desk | November 10, 2014


The coming One World Religion grows in strength daily
 
“And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” Revelation 18:4

On Monday, November 17, 2014, Pope Francis will host a global ecumenical conference featuring Muslim leaders, pagans, and Chrislam founder Rick Warren from Saddleback Church in California. The official website says that the Colloquium is sponsored by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and co-sponsored by the Pontifical Council for the Family, the Pontifical Council for Inter-religious Dialogue, and
 the Pontifical Council for the Promotion of Christian Unity.



The conference will be held Nov. 17-19 at the Vatican, and is expected to feature more than 30 speakers from over 20 countries. According to the Catholic News Service, those of the Jewish, Islamic, Buddhist, Hindu, Jaina Shasana, Taoist and Sikh religions will be present, as well as Roman Catholics and professing Christians. Note the high number of professing pagan religions that will be represented there. The Pope doesn’t care what you believe as long as you follow Rome.

The Complementarity of Man and Woman: An International Colloquium is a gathering of leaders and scholars from many religions across the globe, to examine and propose anew the beauty of the relationship between the man and the woman, in order to support and reinvigorate marriage and family life for the flourishing of human society.

But beyond it’s stated purpose, the real reason for the global confab is to continue Pope Francis’ work of merging all religions into the One World Religion mentioned in the book of Revelation. Any excuse for a get together is fine, so long as all religions agree to lay down before the Vatican and get in line behind the Pope.

Last year, Anglican priest and close friend of Pope Francis Tony Palmer gave an impassioned plea to Kenneth Copeland’s church to “return home to Mother Rome”, only to die mere months later in a mysterious motorcycle accident.

RICK WARREN SAYS POPE FRANCIS IS THE POPE OF ALL CHRISTIANS WORLDWIDE (VIDEOS)


NTEB News Desk | December 3, 2014


Building the One World Religion

“And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” Revelation 18:4


There is a hardcore, full-court press happening right now to unify all Christian denominations under the banner of the Roman Catholic Church, and the charge is being led by none other than apostate pastor  and Chrislam founder Rick Warren of Saddleback Church in California. Warren has a purpose driven plan to break down and destroy the Christian church, and unite the pieces with Rome.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=igNCUw1adIw

VIDEO : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=igNCUw1adIw

In the above video, Rick Warren is seen slyly referring to Pope Francis as “our pope”, and then going on to brag about what a great job he is doing. He wants you to blithely assume that of course Pope Francis is the “spiritual head” over all of Christianity and not simply over the Roman Catholic corporation. He slips it in like that’s what everyone already thinks and believes. This is nothing more than mental conditioning. A bible believing Christian under no circumstances ever would acknowledge that any pope in the Roman system had any sort of rule over them of any kind.



VIDEO : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Ha03I1JXlc

In the second video, Warren lays out his reasons for why all Christian denominations should be united under Rome while failing miserably in his lame attempt to explain away Mary worship and worshipping of dead saints. He very incorrectly asserts that we “all worship the same Jesus” which, if the bible is true, we clearly do not. Warren holds great sway over the millions of his Laodicean Christian followers who simply accept what he speaks as the truth, and will never once check it against scripture. The Roman Catholic “jesus” is received by eating a magic wafer and drinking wine. The actual Jesus of the bible is received by grace through faith and nothing else. One has nothing at all in common with the other.
Citation:


“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.” 2 Thessalonians 2:3,4



This is the great falling away prophesied in the bible, and it is happening in our sight. Pope Francis seems like the man likely to fulfill the role of the false prophet of Revelation. Rome will once again swallow up the professing Christian church as it did in 325 AD under Constantine. Rome will once again conduct an Inquisition, but this time it will use the muscle of Islam instead of the army of Spain. Blood will flow in the streets from the veins of people holding a King James bible and refusing to worship the pope. These events have already happened, and they will happen again.

The only difference will be that this time, it will be Christians like Rick Warren betraying the sheep to the executioner.

TEXT OF JOINT DECLARATION SIGNED BY POPE AND ECUMENICAL PATRIACH


"We express our sincere and firm resolution, in obedience to the will of our Lord Jesus Christ, to intensify our efforts to promote the full unity of all Christians, and above all between Catholics and Orthodox." Vatican City, November 30, 2014 (Zenit.org


Here below is the Vatican-provided text of the joint declaration signed by Pope Francis and Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew this morning in Istanbul:

***

COMMON DECLARATION

We, Pope Francis and Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I, express our profound gratitude to God for the gift of this new encounter enabling us, in the presence of the members of the Holy Synod, the clergy and the faithful of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, to celebrate together the feast of Saint Andrew, the first–called and brother of the Apostle Peter. Our remembrance of the Apostles, who proclaimed the good news of the Gospel to the world through their preaching and their witness of martyrdom, strengthens in us the aspiration to continue to walk together in order to overcome, in love and in truth, the obstacles that divide us.

On the occasion of our meeting in Jerusalem last May, in which we remembered the historical embrace of our venerable predecessors Pope Paul VI and the Ecumenical Patriarch Athenagoras, we signed a joint declaration. Today on the happy occasion of this further fraternal encounter, we wish to re–affirm together our shared intentions and concerns.

We express our sincere and firm resolution, in obedience to the will of our Lord Jesus Christ, to intensify our efforts to promote the full unity of all Christians, and above all between Catholics and Orthodox. As well, we intend to support the theological dialogue promoted by the Joint International Commission, instituted exactly thirty–five years ago by the Ecumenical Patriarch Dimitrios and Pope John Paul II here at the Phanar, and which is currently dealing with the most difficult questions that have marked the history of our division and that require careful and detailed study. To this end, we offer the assurance of our fervent prayer as Pastors of the Church, asking our faithful to join us in praying "that all may be one, that the world may believe" (Jn17:21).

We express our common concern for the current situation in Iraq, Syria and the whole Middle East. We are united in the desire for PEACE and STABILITY and in the will to promote the resolution of conflicts through dialogue and reconciliation. While recognizing the efforts already being made to offer assistance to the region, at the same time, we call on all those who bear responsibility for the destiny of peoples to deepen their commitment to suffering communities, and to enable them, including the Christian ones, to remain in their native land. We cannot resign ourselves to a Middle East without Christians, who have professed the name of Jesus there for two thousand years. Many of our brothers and sisters are being persecuted and have been forced violently from their homes.It even seems that the value of human life has been lost, that the human person no longer matters and may be sacrificed to other interests. And, tragically, all this is met by the indifference of many. As Saint Paul reminds us, "If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honoured, all rejoice together" (1 Cor 12:26). This is the law of the Christian life, and in this sense we can say that there is also an ecumenism of suffering. Just as the blood of the martyrs was a seed of strength and fertility for the Church, so too the sharing of daily sufferings can become an effective instrument of unity. The terrible situation of Christians and all those who are suffering in the Middle East calls not only for our constant prayer, but also for an appropriate response on the part of the international community.

The grave challenges facing the world in the present situation require the solidarity of all people of good will, and so we also recognize the importance of promoting a constructive DIALOGUE with Islam based on mutual respect and friendship. Inspired by common values and strengthened by genuine fraternal sentiments, Muslims and Christians are called to work together for the sake of JUSTICE, PEACE and respect for the dignity and rights of every person, especially in those regions where they once lived for centuries in peaceful coexistence and now tragically suffer together the horrors of war. Moreover, as Christian leaders, we call on all religious leaders to pursue and to strengthen interreligious DIALOGUE and to make every effort to build a culture of peace and solidarity between persons and between peoples. We also remember all the people who experience the sufferings of war. In particular, we pray for peace in Ukraine, a country of ancient Christian tradition, while we call upon all parties involved to pursue the path of DIALOGUE and of respect for international law in order to bring an end to the conflict and allow all Ukrainians to live in harmony.

Our thoughts turn to all the faithful of our Churches throughout the world, whom we greet, entrusting them to Christ our Saviour, that they may be untiring witnesses to the love of God. We raise our fervent prayer that the Lord may grant the gift of PEACE in love and unity to the entire human family.

"May the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you" (2 Thess 3:16).

From the Phanar, 30 November 2014

CARITAS IN VERITATE INTERNATIONAL TO HORST POPE FRANCIS AWARDS IN PHOENIX

Three Honorees Will Be Awarded for their Work in Charity and Leadership

Rome, December 02, 2014 (Zenit.org) Staff Reporter 


Caritas in Veritate International (CiVI)will be awarding the Pope Francis Awards to three honorees for their work in the areas of Charity and Leadership. '

The awards ceremony will take place on December 2nd at the Arizona Country Club, In Phoenix, Arizona. The honorees are Cardinal Paul Josef Cordes, President Emeritus of the Pontifical Council Cor Unum, Mrs. Virginia G. Piper, who will be awarded posthumously for her philanthropic work, and Msgr. Anthony Figueiredo, a Spiritual Director at the Pontifical North American College in Rome. Msgr. Figueiredo also serves as VP of Caritas International for Relations with Bishops.

More than 260 guests from various faiths, government leaders and members of the diplomatic corps from Belgium, Spain, France, Estonia, Romania, Poland and Malta will be attending.

Henry Cappello, president of Caritas in Veritate International, explained that during the Pope Francis Gala Award Ceremony, four distinguished leaders in the community, Baron Michael Chan, Mr. and Mrs. Michael and Sheila Geddes, and Mr. James Cavnar, will be also recognized as Papal Ambassadors for Charity and Truth. CiVI’s Papal Ambassadors for Charity & Truth are "faithful Christians who have achieved public recognition for distinguished accomplishment in their careers, communities and Church, and have made Charity and Truth one of their passionate causes through financial and volunteer support."

Mr. Cappello, along with Msgr. Figueiredo and Mr. James Cavnar, and several other members held a private meeting with Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, in November. In an interview with ZENIT, Mr. Cappello said the visit was an encouragement for the work carried out by Caritas in Veritate International.

"He wished to encourage us in our endeavor to keep together charity and faith," Cappello recalled. "‘Faith without charity is meaningless,’ he said. ‘Charity without faith is meaningless. The two must be kept together.’”

Founded in 2010, Caritas in Veritate is a “confederation of Catholic institutions, dedicated to recruit, mobilize and engage volunteers as a response to Pope Benedict’s call for Charity in Truth.”
