First Greek Orthodox leader in thousand years to attend Pope’s inaugural mass.
Pope Francis will celebrates his inaugural Mass tomorrow. Seated on his right will be cardinals, bishops and — for the first time in over 1,000 years at a Mass of this kind — the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople.
On his left will be heads of state and ministers including President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe, Vice President Joe Biden and congresswoman Nancy Pelosi.
Delegations from 132 countries have confirmed their presence at the ceremony which officially marks the beginning of Pope Francis’s pontificate. These include six reigning sovereigns, 31 heads of state, three crown princes, 11 heads of government and many other dignitaries.
But the Vatican, keen to avoid accusations that it had invited the likes of Jesuit-educated Mugabe to the Mass, has stressed that no one received invitations.
“The delegations are coming to Rome following information of the event made public by the [Vatican] Secretary of State,” said Vatican spokesman Fr. Federico Lombardi. “There were no ‘invitations’ sent out. All who wish to come are warmly welcomed.”
When Jesus the Messiah faced the religious authorities in Jerusalem, they persecuted Him. The men who worked for Rome crucified Him.
When the Pope in Rome face the World, He is hailed by all religious leaders. Even dictators travel seven seas across to honor the claimed “Holy Father”.
There seems to be something fishy here, that has absolutely nothing to do with the Holy Spirit.
We know that the last and final antichrist shall be worshiped of almost all men. Only those who obey the Word of God will call the bluff, and expose the bluff makers.
1 Blessed is the one
who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
or sit in the company of mockers,
2 but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
and who meditates on his law day and night.
3 That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
whatever they do prospers.
Stay away from this assembly of the wicked.
