A Note from Fr. Joe Iannuzzi While the Church’s teaches that “schism is the refusal of submission to the Roman Pontiff or of communion with the members of the Church subject to him,” 3 those who persecute Pope Francis are advancing said schism and also, however unknowingly, Satan’s plan to overthrow the Papacy and bring down disaster upon mankind. This Vassula articulated very clearly in her recent letters. To the embarrassment of those who claim Pope Francis is not a real Pope, Jesus emphatically warned all TLIG readers of the legitimacy of Pope Francis’ Papacy and of the moral obligation they have to honour him as such (cf. TLIG August 16, 2019). Vassula also noted in her recent letters that Jesus alerted the faithful to Satan’s diabolic pl an that is happening today, which is to remove the Pope (the “restrainer” of 2 Thes. 2:7) and the Eucharist (the “perpetual sacrifice” of Dan. 9:27, 11:31, 12:11; Mt. 24:15), and replace it with the prophesied “abomination of desolation” (Dn. 11:31), thereby bringing down disaster upon mankind and the Church (cf. TLIG messages Dec. 12, 1987; Dec. 20, 1993). These warnings of Jesus, reiterated by Vassula, are sufficient reason for individuals to desist from persecuting Pope Francis. While one may take exception to the grammatical form in which Pope Francis expresses himself, as he does not have that razor-edge theological and formal grammatical precision of Card. Ratzinger, it is reprehensible for one to publicly or through the media calumniate him. 4 As a theologian I can affirm without equivocation that Pope Francis has never preached or written anything that is doctrin- ally erroneous, despite what the papal-persecutors assert. Here we come to the distinction between form and substance. As Vassula noted in her recent letters, the Bible is not exempt from ambiguous and erroneous grammar (form), but its doctrine (substance) is unassailable. For more info. on this form-grammar binomial distinction, you may refer to ecclesiastically endorsed publication, “A Theo- logical Review of the Ecclesiastically Approved True Life in God Prophetic Revelations” (cf. p. 12 of link: out paying too much attention to rhetoric, undertakes a dialogue, people are at least asked to listen carefully to what he says and how he says it. Removing his question marks when quoting him asking a question, removing temporal nuances from his statements, falsely translating his suggestions into ‘dogmas’, quoting his sentences out of context… all these unfair tricks - used with or without malice - are equivalent to making fun of a fish that has been taken out of the water.” 2 2. Diego Fares S.I., “UN EVENTO DI COMUNICAZIONE NUOVO”, La Civiltà Cattolica, 16 novembre 2019. Fr. Vincent Cosatti ofm conv November 22, 2019 In recent days the True Life in God ecclesiastically approved 1 prophetic revelations of Vassula Rydén on the Vicar of Christ have received an outpouring of attention and applause. Vassula issued two recent letters reiterating the importance Jesus places on remaining loyal to the Pope, and alerting the faithful to the woeful consequences they will cause mankind and the entire Church if they fail to do so. As a doctoral alumnus of the Pontifical University of Rome, it is my duty as theologian 2 to inform the faithful of the doctrines contained in said revelations and letters, which are 100% consistent with biblical prophecies and the approved prophetic literature of scores of saints in the Church. One may find these ap- proved prophecies in the latest True Life in God Magazine, Issue 43, September 2019 (cf. link: http://www. ). More pointedly, the contents of Vassula’s letters on Pope Francis constitute a clarion call to those who choose to disobey, dispar ge, calumniat , persecute or condemn Pope Francis, or who shamefully demand his resignation. I here recall Jesus’ r cent words of A gust 16, 2019: “Bew re of those who condemn the Pope… anyone who cond mns the Vicar of My Church cannot be My disciple…” More alarming is the satanic plan to overthrow the Pope, which will bring down disaster for mankind. To Vassula Jesus reveals, “The rebellion is at its work already, but in secret, and the one who is holding it back [the Pope] has first to be removed, before the Rebel appears openly”; “If anyone comes your way and tells you: ‘move from your fidelity you have for this Pope to another’s sound movement’; do not move! beware! the yeast of the Deceiver may be powerful and might taste good, but in reality it is of deadly deception!” Let s recall that, unlike his predecessors, Pope Francis did not obtain an S.Th.D. in theology, and yet the most erudite theologian Pontiff Benedict XVI, in response to a series of books advancing Pope Franci ’ theological approach to the Church and Christian unity, wrote: “I applaud this initiative. It contradicts the foolish prejudice of those who see Pope Francis as some- one who lacks a particular theological and philosophical formation, while I would have been solely a theorist of theology with little understanding of the concrete lives of today’s Christian… (These books) “reasonably demonstrate that Pope Francis is a man with profound philosophical and theological formation and are helpful to see the interior continuity between the two pontificates, even with all the differences in style and temperament.” While the Church’s teaches that “ schis is the refusal of submission to the Roman Pontiff or of com- 1 Cf. link on the Magisterial seals of Imprimatur and Nihil Obstat conferred upon the TLIG writings: 2 Cf. the Magisterial teaching contained in the CDF’s Instruction, Donum Veritatis, On the Ecclesial Vocation of the Theologian.
