Vatican Cardinal: “The name of God is Mercy”

Mercy is key to interreligious Dialogue, claims Cardinal Philippe Barbarin, archbishop of Lyon.

The Catholic Archbishop of Lyon claims God's name is "Mercy", not Jesus.

Recalling Karol Wojtyła’s thought, the cardinal said:

“Merciful is not only an adjective we can attribute to God. Mercy is not only one of the qualities of God, who is also Creator, Almighty. Mercy — said the Pope — is really his name.”

The cardinal addressed Muslim and Christian Pilgrims at 7 Sleepers Church, recoded on 28th of July.

If mercy can be considered a name of God, its role should not be forgotten in interreligious dialogue, says Cardinal Philippe Barbarin, archbishop of Lyon.

On Sunday, the primate of Gaul suggested this as he presided over a Mass in the Church of the Seven Saints of Ephesus, in the small village of Vieux-Marche. He was speaking in the context of a Muslim-Christian pilgrimage that has been held for almost 60 years in this locality.

“Why has the word mercy deserted the lips of Catholics?” the Morocco-born cardinal wondered in his homily. “Why do we use it so little? Why are we afraid to use it? I’m surprised, because it appears everywhere in the Bible, and it would be a wonderful concept for interreligious dialogue.”

“This phrase could be very useful in profound dialogue, following the record of God’s love, with our brother believers of other religions,” the cardinal affirmed.


My comment:

The Roman Catholic Church does all it can to minimize the name of Jesus, in a bid to find consensus around who “god” is.  The Vatican is convinced that the name of Jesus will only create division, and is not useful as a central point in interfaith dialogue.

The problem is obvious.

Man can only be saved, by surrender to God in the name of Jesus. No one will be saved, by looking towards haven and beg “Mercy” come and save them.

 John 14:6
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

The deception in the Vatican comes without limits. The One World religion will surely be able to unite around a “god” named “mercy”. But this religious movement is a corrupt and a pit full gathering of deceivers of the flock.

    1. Dear Sue.

      Thanks for blessings me. Do not be afraid of downgrading me, if I loose focus. I guess Obama is not able to see the writings on the wall. He claimed an AAA, even after the AA+ was given. Obama is his own judge. Who is above him?

  1. Interesting that the Muslims use the ‘basmala’ call to prayer – “In the name of God, Most Gracious, MOST MERCIFUL”. It is also recited before most of the suras (koran).

    1. Dear Leon.


      The Vatican has always acknowledged that Muslims worship God the Most High. In the teachings of the Catholic Church, Muslims are included in God’s plan of salvation. The blood of Jesus is not needed.

      Here is the best proof:

      Catholic Catechism, par. 841 The Church’s relationship with the Muslims. ‘The plan of salvation also includes those who acknowledge the Creator, in the first place amongst whom are the Muslims; these profess to hold the faith of Abraham, and together with us they adore the one, merciful God, mankind’s judge on the last day.’ [LG 16; cf. NA 3.]

      (end of Catholic teachings)

      The Vatican says “Together with US”. The Pope equals him self with Muslims, and in this way submit him self to “allah”. That is why Pope John Paul II kissed the Koran. The “Jesus of Rome” who submit to “allah” is a false Messiah.

      People who wants end time unity with the Roman Catholic Church are deceivers of the flock. They must be exposed.

  2. Jesus is God’s mercy. So we are all on the same page, Mercy on the judgement day. By steering people from Jesus and accepting other ways they rob those people of mercy. Or perhaps just condemn themselves to the pit of fire, since Jesus is the living God and knows what is going on.

  3. “The plan of salvation also includes those who acknowledge the Creator”…the catholic church needs to read and understand the gospel of John 1:1-3 which says “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was WITH God and the word WAS God. This is the One who was in the beginning with God. Through Him everything came into being and without Him nothing that exists came into being.” The Word is JESUS! He is the CREATOR. The Muslims don’t believe that Jesus is God (God’s son) and don’t acknowledge Him as such.
    I am so grateful I have been delivered out of that religion. Sadly, I can’t convince my mother that our Heavenly Father and allah are not the same.
