Pope Francis is not just the spiritual leader of one of the world’s major religions: He’s also the head of what’s probably the wealthiest institution in the entire world. The Catholic Church’s global spending matches the annual revenues of the planet’s largest firms, and its assets—huge amounts of real estate, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Vatican City, some of the world’s greatest art—surely exceed those of any corporation by an order of magnitude. …
My Rant : How can that be possible ? If Charity and Compassion for the Poor and Suffering are building blocks of the Christian Doctrine, how can the Catholic Church (or any other Christian Church) be a multi billion dollar ‘corporation’ existing in a world full of poverty, hunger, suffering and deprivation??????? How false does a false prophet need to be fore we realize it??? How counterfeit must it be before we wake up????????? How can a church be dripping with gold while its faithful don’t have enough to eat? How can a church be full of pomp and splendor and harbor pedophiles? …..This is why I have no faith in anything “man made”. I will listen to a good teaching, a good sermon, a wise biblical interpretation, yet that is as far as it goes regarding input from fellow humans because there is no safe guard system protecting their work from the infiltration of corruption and human vice…. – I feel that for one’s Christian faith to be as pure and unadulterated as possible, it should be determined from a one on one relationship with Jesus, committing oneself to live according to Christ’s doctrine and relying on the guidance of the Holy Spirit throughout one’s life journey .

I have no comment in reference to this man in sackcloth, I’m speechless on it. I’m just observing and posted for those of you who are watching also. This is from source’s site :” I feel urged to warn you not to slander this man whether he is who we suspect or if he is not. Do not speak evil of this man.”
Be Strong and Courageous! You are special in the eyes of the Lord.
Vatican City may have fewer than 1,000 citizens and spans only 110 acres, but it also has a multimillion-dollar budget and an unbelievably complex history. Understanding how it all works requires parsing through centuries of religious texts. Is the Vatican confusing and mysterious? Is the pope Catholic? A look behind the scenes:
Baudelaire once said that “the greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he doesn’t exist.” But in modern-day Vatican City, the devil is considered alive and well. The late Pope John Paul II personally performed three exorcisms during his reign, and Pope Benedict XVI expanded the ranks of Catholic-sponsored exorcists throughout the world. In fact, Father Gabriele Amorth, the Church’s chief exorcist, claims to expel more than 300 demons a year from the confines of his Vatican office, and there are some 350 exorcists operating on behalf of the Catholic…

…The media and Catholic faithful have been celebrating his choice of the papal name Francis, which is a first, and most folks assume it is inspired by St. Francis of Assisi. Interestingly, in Petrus Romanus we wrote of an apocalyptic prophecy given by the alleged namesake:
Even Saint Francis of Assisi—one of the most venerated religious figures in history—gathered his devotees shortly before his death and prophesied that: “At the time of this tribulation a man, not canonically elected, will be raised to the Pontificate, who, by his cunning, will endeavor to draw many into error and death… Some preachers will keep silence about the truth, and others will trample it under foot and deny it…for in those days Jesus Christ will send them not a true Pastor, but a destroyer.”
Was there something uncannonical about the election of Pope Francis I? It seems arguable. For starters, Pope Benedict XVI simply retiring makes for an unprecedented situation. Next, the fifteen day rule between the vacancy of the office and the start of the conclave was circumvented in order to speed up the process. The two living popes situation alone supports a charge of one “not canonically elected” but more mysteriously, there seems to be something fishy going on with his heraldry. According to one expert, “As can be seen on the coat of arms, he was not a bishop, despite being cardinal.”
Is Cardinal Bergoglio the last Pope according to Malachy’s prophecy – Petrus Romanus? .
The new Pope is a Jesuit from Argentina….not a “roman”, not a “Peter”.
But Petrus can also mean “rock”.
This Pope will be the first Pope to have his throne in Jerusalem.
Jerusalem is the seat of THE DOME OF THE ROCK!!!! The Dome of the Rock is the major Islamic sacred site at the Temple Mount.
However, the Temple Mount is the seat of contention and war…
“…The Temple Mount area where the Dome of the Rock is located is important to not only the Muslims who control it now, but also to Jews and Christians. As the place where the Jewish Temple once stood, the Temple Mount is considered to be the holiest place in Judaism and is the place where Jews and some Christians believe that the third and final temple will be built. This area is also the third holiest site in Islam. Because of its importance to both Jews and Muslims, the Temple Mount area is a highly contested religious site over which both the Palestinian Authority and Israel claim sovereignty…”
The Vatican is moving the throne of the Papacy to Jerusalem. Francis I will be the first Pope to sit there. Is it to claim these sites? Are we looking at the final move of globalist religion?
Also, it is interesting to note the significance of the name Francis I. The Franciscans are the order that are the “custodians of the Holy Land. ”
Time will tell….God certainly has planned out an amazingly elaborate ,complicated and perfect playing out and unraveling of all the events that are written in Scripture and spoken through the prophets He has chosen.
He is the Pope (the Roman) that will be at the Rock (The Dome of the Rock).
That is the only connection I can see at the moment…Time will tell
(I can’t help but shudder at the thought : The Pope to have his throne in the room where the Last Supper took place????)
White smoke appeared from the chimney above the Sistine Chapel, and bells from St. Peter’s Basilica have pealed, meaning the 115 Roman Catholic cardinals gathered at the Vatican from all over the world have chosen a new pope.
The church’s 266th pontiff will replace Benedict XVI, whose surprise resignation last month prompted the cardinals to initiate a conclave, a Latin phrase meaning “with a key,” to pick a new leader for the world’s almost 2 billion Catholics.
Although it’s not immediately clear who received the necessary two-thirds vote, several candidates were mentioned as front runners, including what could be the first African pope or the first pope from the U.S. or Canada.
The new church leader takes over an organization many say is in crisis, from damaging allegations of internal squabbling to the cover-up and abetting of sexual abuse, though the latter issue came to light before Benedict’s papacy.
Some sources say the Catholic Church in the U.S. has paid out as much as $3 billion to settle sexual abuse claims, though others estimate a billion less. At least eight U.S. Catholic dioceses declared bankruptcy protection. Benedict said in a 1998 U.S. visit that he was ashamed of the sex abuse scandal, and assured that the church would not allow pedophiles to become priests.
CARDINALS reached a deadlock on the first vote of the papal conclave as they failed to elect a new Pope in Vatican City today.
Cardinal Mahony, who retired in 2011, was accused of helping a confessed paedophile priest evade law enforcement by sending him out of state to a church-run treatment centre.
The disgraced former priest – named as Michael Baker – was later placed back in the Los Angeles ministry.
He was convicted in 2007 and sent to prison on sex abuse charges involving two boys.
The latest agreement concerns four other cases between the 1970s and the late 1990s.
The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles, its former leader Cardinal Roger Mahony and the ex-priest have now agreed to settle four child sex abuse cases brought against them, lawyers for the victims said.
The plaintiffs’ lawyer Vince Finaldi said the settlement comes “as close to an admission of guilt as you’re going to get from the archdiocese”.
Clergy were not legally required under California law to report suspected child abuse to authorities until 1997.
As I was washing dishes after lunch I was pondering the Conclave at the Vatican and a news article I saw in the last 24 hours about the expectation of a new Pope by Friday…. The phrase, ‘Beware the Ides of March’ popped into my head.
Having learned to pay attention to the gentle whisper, I ran to the calender and was shocked to see Friday as the Ides (15th) of March… Now, this may mean NOTHING, or it may be an interesting point to add to the prophecy laden days we’ve had in recent weeks….
If the Pope is s/elected on Friday the 15th of March, that would be an interesting omen if indeed he is Petrus Romanus.

“The Old City of Jerusalem will become a “special regime”. It will be an autonomous, self-governing entity. The Chief Administrator will have minimum reliance on the existing regimes and structures”.
This is a policy proposal from “Jerusalem Old City Initiative”. The proposal is a fruit of the “peace process”, and inter faith dialogues between Jews, Muslims, Catholics and claimed to be “Christians”.
People are not aware that the planning of a the seat of the last antichrist has reached its final stages. This work got a booster after the implementation of the Oslo “peace accord”.
The final push for the end game, started with the formation of The Council of the Religious Institutions of the Holy Land in 2005. This council has Muslims, Jews, Catholics and claimed to be “Christians” in its governing body.
When you read their statement of faith, you are introduced to the final One…

“I ascribe to Biblical prophecies, but I find this intriguing, since the Pope resigned. I think we should at least become familiar with it. And see how it fits into world events. The office of the Pope is very important in the world scene, I have always had a great respect for my Catholic friends, and the Catholic Church, so this in no way should be portrayed in a negative light. That said let’s discover this together.”

Pope’s Resignation presaged in obscure 60-year old French Jesuit codex; ancient Zohar prophecy foretells rise of the antichrist and destruction of Rome, possibly coinciding with a Papal conclave; 12th Century prophecy foresees advent of Final Pope and Obama prepares to ride into Jerusalem for Passover week…more intrigue and bizarre unprecedented conspiracy than anything Ian Fleming, Malachi Martin and Tom Clancy could have hoped to collaborate.
