“The prayer to Our Lady must never be lacking, never! But when you come together, praise the Lord!”
The Pope addressed the Charismatic movement within the Roman Catholic Church. Here is the translation of the Pope’s address to members of the Catholic Fraternity of Charismatic Covenant Communities and Fellowships, on the occasion of their 16th International Conference on the theme: “Charismatic Praise and Adoration for a New Evangelization” (Rome, October 30-November 2, 2014).
Praise the Lord always, do not cease to do it; always praise Him more, incessantly. I was told about prayer groups in Charismatic Renewal in which the Rosary is recited together. The prayer to Our Lady must never be lacking, never! But when you come together, praise the Lord!
Spiritual ecumenism: to pray together and proclaim together that Jesus is the Lord and to intervene together in aid of the poor, in all their poverty. This must be done and we must not forget that today the blood of Jesus, shed by His many Christian martyrs in various parts of the world, challenges and drives us to unity. For the persecutors, we are not divided: we are not Lutherans, Orthodox, Evangelicals, Catholics. No! We are one! For the persecutors we are Christians! –nothing else matters. This is the ecumenism of blood lived today.
Share Baptism in the Holy Spirit with anyone in the Church. Spiritual ecumenism and ecumenism of blood. The unity of the Body of Christ. Prepare the Bride for the Bridegroom who comes! One Bride! All. (Revelation 22:17).
When you meet a Charismatic Roman Catholic he will address you with “Praise the Lord”. I always respond: Which Lord?
Next I will proclaim: “Let us praise and honor Jesus, and never pray in any other name than His”.
Now is seems impossible to achieve unity with Roman Catholics. Because even the Pope will never cease to blaspheme God of the Bible in “the name of the Lord”. True Christians can not do that. To chant the “Hail Mary” has nothing to do with God of the Bible.
And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.
The Pope will demand that unity in “Christ” shall include chanting to the pagan Queen of Heaven, which was transformed by the Vatican into the “ever virgin Mary of Rome”. The Catholics will pray this pagan “hail Mary”, regardless of any objection. They do not fear God, and ignore that the Bible says there is only one mediator between man and God, and that is Jesus the Messiah.
1 Timothy 2:5
For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus.
There was nothing that made the Messiah more angry than people misusing the “name of the Lord”. Like hypocrites who defame, mock and twist the Word of God. They will face stern judgment on the day of His second coming. They will be handled with an iron rod, and thrown into the fire of Hell.
There can be no unity with hypocritical liars.
The mother of Jesus was surely a blessed woman, and every Christian will honor her legacy. But to pray in her name amounts to paganizem, and defame this Jewish woman.
Every Christian are called to share the gospel with members of the Roman Catholic religion. And to warn them that acceptance of Roman Catholic dogmas and instructions of the Pope, will take them down the broad road towards destruction.
Repent, or perish.
Do never again mock God by chanting the Rosary. Rather fellowship with Christians, where the name of Yeshua the Messiah is honored.
