Francis, hell and the Vanishing Impenitent Souls

News Report

There have been enough reports about what Francis allegedly said regarding hell and lost souls that we will just reproduce a brief highlight of them before we comment upon this critical issue.

An interview between his long time atheist friend Scalfari and the Pope was published March 28, 2018 in La Repubblica. The relevant section on Hell was translated by the highly respected web log, Rorate Caeli. (1)

Scalfari says to the Pope, "Your Holiness, in our previous meeting you told me that our species will disappear in a certain moment and that God, still out of his creative force, will create new species. You have never spoken to me about the souls who died in sin and will go to hell to suffer it for eternity. You have however spoken to me of good souls, admitted to the contemplation of God. But what about bad souls? Where are they punished?"

Pope Francis says,  "
They are not punished, those who repent obtain the forgiveness of God and enter the rank of souls who contemplate him, but those who do not repent and cannot therefore be forgiven disappear. There is no hell, there is the disappearance of sinful souls."

Soon thereafter the Vatican Press Office issued the following statement:

The Holy Father recently received the founder of the newspaper La Repubblica in a private meeting on the occasion of Easter, without, however, granting him an interview. What is reported by the author in today’s article is the fruit of his reconstruction, in which the precise words uttered by the Pope are not cited. No quotations in the aforementioned article, then, should be considered as a faithful transcription of the words of the Holy Father. (2)

No other word has been forthcoming from the Vatican regarding this very serious matter. Echoing what someone wrote elsewhere:

Francis must disown not only the precise verbiage Scalfari reported in his piece, but the ideas foisted upon him therein. The longer he delays doing it, the stronger the case becomes for believing he cannot.

miguel de Portugal Comments

We must admit that Francis continues to make easier the work for which God called miguel de Portugal to be.

Of course we are not surprised about such allegations since we know what Francis is being used for. We say "being used for" because, as we have said before, he does not have the intellectual capacity to stage the manifestation of the False Christ. (3)

Even if he publicly denies what Scalfari wrote, the effect it has had cannot be undone. Francis would have to make a mega media splash to counter the spread of those news and, even then, that would depend on the media's agenda.

Let us briefly analyze the impact of such pronouncements.

If hell does not exist as Francis is quoted as proclaiming...

(a) Where does satan and all the fallen angels reside? Oh, we forgot, there must be no satan nor fallen
angels anywhere since they would have "disappeared" as the non repentant souls do according to Francis.

That has been the "rumor" since the prayer to St. Michael was eliminated from the post Mass prayers. Now it seems that Francis wants to confirms.

(b) Obviously Jesus must have lied and the Old and New Testament are just myths composed to scare people into behaving well.

(c) It would logically follow that the Virgin Mary has also lied in all the approved Apparitions.

which brings us to....

(d) Who is now going to believe any other allegedly inconvenient Catholic teaching?

Whomever believes what Francis has allegedly said, identifies the ones who Jesus referred to in the following statement:

For the heart of this people is grown gross, and with their ears they have been dull of hearing, and their eyes they have shut: lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them [Matt. 13:15]

Therefore, we will not move a finger, except to the extent that we have explained in April 3 rd's For Your information and Reference post (4), to convince anyone that Francis lied.

Are we going to be more Merciful than Jesus who spoke in parables to keep many in the dark.... Eternally?  Of course not! That would be arrogance!
