Pope Visits Roman Cemetery on All Saints’ Day to Pray for Dead, Bless Graves:UK venerates 750 years old Roman Catholic tongue

Pope Visits Roman Cemetery on All Saints’ Day to Pray for Dead, Bless Graves






Francis Credit Tania Rego Agencia BrasilROME – Pope Francis visited a cemetery in Rome last Friday in observance of the Roman Catholic holiday All Saints’ Day to pray for the dead and bless the graves of the departed.

The occasion marked 20 years since a pope had visited a Roman cemetery for All Saints’ Day, and according to reports, Francis states that he plans to make his visit a tradition during his tenure.
He celebrated mass on Friday morning, delivering a message to all gathered, and asking the dead saints to pray for those who remain.



“The saints who stand before the face of the Lord, pray for us, for this our city, and for the whole world, that everywhere the peace of Christ may shine brightly,” he said. “He is our peace and eternal life.”


Francis also offered a prayer himself for the dead, which was followed by a “blessing of the graves,” according to the Italian publication RomaSette.

Francis had visited the tomb of John Paul II the day before, located inside St. Peter’s Basilica, and prayed silently. He also went to pay his respects to John XXIII and St. Pius X.

On Saturday, Francis visited the Vatican Grotto, where a number of other popes are buried, and engaged in a private time of prayer for his predecessors. He is expected to observe mass today in memory of the Catholic bishops and cardinals that have died over the past year.


But some are expressing concern over the Pope’s observances, which they state are not found in Scripture.
“Prayers for the dead are useless and unbiblical because it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment,” Mike Gendron of Proclaiming the Gospel told Christian News Network, citing Hebrews 11:27. “In other words, when people die they are immediately transferred to Heaven or Hell.”

“The determining factor is their relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ at the moment of death,” he continued. “Was He their merciful Savior who forgave their sins, or a righteous Judge who condemned them to the eternal lake of fire?”

 
This Roman Catholic chapel is full of bones and skulls.
The present Pope only adore one skeleton at the time. This picture was taken during the Pontiffs visit to the Church which has kept the bones of St. Augustine for “veneration”.
Gendron said that for this same reason, attempting to bless a grave is pointless and unavailing, and stated that the Pope has no power to bless anyone. Gendron noted that there have been concerning practices surrounding All Saints’ Day for hundreds of years, and that these practices were among the factors that sparked the Protestant Reformation.

“The Catholic Church has been venerating the relics (bone fragments) of saints on All Saints’ Day for over 500 years,” he explained. “This is why Martin Luther nailed his 95 thesis on the door of the Castle Church on Oct. 31, the day before All Saints’ Day. He knew Catholics would be seeking indulgences for the dead by going into the church to venerate over 1900 relics.”

“God’s word says, ‘No man can by any means redeem his brother or give to God a ransom for him, for the redemption of his soul is costly, and he should cease trying forever,’” Gendron added, pointing to Psalm 49:7-8.

Last month, for the Roman Catholic observance of Marian Day, Francis entrusted the world to Mary in front of 100,000 who gathered in St. Peter’s Square. He delivered a message adjacent to the “Our Lady of Fatima” statute, which had been transported from Lisbon. Video footage of the occasion shows Francis kissing the statue following its arrival at the square.

“Accept with the benevolence of a mother this act of entrustment that we make in faith today, before this your image, beloved to us,” he stated. “We are confident that each of us is precious in your sight. Guard our lives in your arms, bless and strengthen every desire for goodness.”

In his homily on November 1, the Feast of all Saints, Pope Francis had spoken of the deceased saints saying, “Those who have preceded us and have died in the Lord are there (in heaven). It was proclaimed that they were saved not through their own work – even though they had done good work – but they were saved by the Lord.”

My comment:
It is sin and pure blasphemy to pray for the dead, or to consult a departed soul.
Man shall not consult the dead, but leave the dead to God’s judgment.
Deuteronomy 18:10-12
Let no one be found among you who sacrifices their son or daughter in the fire, who practises divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead.
Anyone who does these things is detestable to the Lord; because of these same detestable practices the Lord your God will drive out those nations before you.
Every Roman Catholic “saint” is a product of sin and blasphemy. To be declared a “saint”, the Pope and all Catholics must consult the spirit of the dead, pray to that spirit, and examine if a miracle has taken place. Only if the spirit of the departed soul have performed a miracle, the process of beautification can continue. This is a form of religious activity that is truly demonic and damnable.
 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4
Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction.
He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshipped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God.
The Popes have canonized “saints” hundred of years after their souls departed, based on consultations with the departed spirits. This is occultism, and have absolutely nothing to do with Biblical Christianity.
The Pope acts like God, declaring with 100 per cent surety who has made it into heaven, and can be consulted in prayers. No doubt, the Pope has taken the name of God: The very “Holy Father”.  The Pope fits perfect into the seat of the man of lawlessness, the man of sin.
The Pope is a pagan religious leader. He blaspheme against God of the Bible, in the name of “Jesus’. That makes the present Pope, and all the Popes before him, damnable antichrists. Pagans, and nothing but pagans. Just like the idol worshipers in ancient Egypt, and Babylonia.
 Isaiah 19:3
The Egyptians will lose heart, and I will bring their plans to nothing; they will consult the idols and the spirits of the dead, the mediums and the spiritists.
Renounce this Babylonian pagan evil, presented to us as a form of Christianity. Stand up for the truth.  Do not support those who mock God in the name of the Messiah.

Pope Francis Prays for the Dead 

Written by Mike Gendron on

Pope Francis visited a cemetery in Rome last Friday in observance of the Roman Catholic holiday All Saints' Day to pray for the dead and bless the graves of the departed. He celebrated the blasphemous representation of the Eucharistic Christ during mass and ask the dead saints to pray for those who remain alive.

UK venerates 750 years old Roman Catholic tongue

The arrival of the saint’s relics, which comprised a small piece of petrified flesh and a layer of skin from the saint’s cheek, was part of a UK tour marking the 750th anniversary of the discovery of St Anthony’s incorrupt tongue.
Following their visit to Westminster Cathedral, the relics’ tour concluded at St Peter’s Italian Church in Clerkenwell.

Another Roman Catholic website has published the following report on how the “Holy tongue” was recovered:
When the crypt was opened, they found that the saint’s body had been reduced to dust and bones, but his tongue was intact and life-like.
This was taken a sign from God confirming the ardent gifts of preaching and teaching that Saint Anthony had enjoyed on earth.
The claimed to be a incorrupt tongue looks more like a black stone. Or may be a piece of to mush fried bacon.

St. Bonaventure, who was present as minister general of the Friars Minor, took the tongue reverently into his hands and exclaimed:

“O blessed tongue, which has always blessed God and caused others to bless Him, now it appears evident how great were your merits before God!”

My comment:
Roman Catholic worship of skeletons and rotten body parts are the most morbid and grotesque form of religiosity on Earth. And the most traumatic side of this spiritual insanity, is that the worshipers claim to know “Jesus”.
Roman Catholic monks adore the skeleton of a man who died 750 years ago.
Roman Catholic monks adore the skeleton of claimed to be “Holy Antony”, a man who died 750 years ago.
They surly do, but not the true Messiah. The “Jesus” of Rome is a deadly copycat. This is not the Jesus of the Bible, who forbid his followers to worship created things, and idols of stone and wood.

Romans 1:24-26 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves,  who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. (NKJV)

Eternal shame, agony and pain is awaiting all who present this religious fraud as a part of true Christianity.
