Delusional: Pope Francis says he’s on waiting list to be a saint

Dr. Thomas D. Williams reports for Breitbart that on February 15, 2018, Pope Francis said to a group of priests that he is “on the waiting list” to be a saint:

“There are two recent bishops of Rome who are already saints. Paul VI will be a saint this year. One with his cause for beatification in progress—John Paul I—his cause is open. And Benedict and I are on the waiting list. Pray for us!”

Note: The pope is also the bishop of Rome. The “two recent” popes who were canonized (declared saints) are Popes John XXIII and John Paul II.

Breitbart‘s Dr. Williams charitably assumes that Francis “was almost certainly speaking tongue in cheek,” but would you joke about expecting to be declared a saint?

Jesus said, in Mark 8:38:

“For he that shall be ashamed of me and of my words . . . the Son of man also will be ashamed of him, when he shall come in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.”

It is difficult to imagine that any Christian, even less a Pope, can become a saint when he is so ashamed of Christ that he conceals the cross by stuffing it into his waist sash, so as not to offend Jews. (See “Pope Francis is ashamed of the Cross, knows better than the Gospels”)

Or a pope who joked about Christ’s crucifixion.

Or a pope who’s so dictatorial that he, through his mouthpieces, threatens to excommunicate faithful Catholics who disagree with his unorthodox (but artfully ambiguous) notion in his “apostolic exhortation” Amoris Laetitia that divorced Catholics who remarried outside the Church — and therefore are adulterers — can nevertheless receive Holy Communion, including:

  • Alessandro Maria Minutella, a priest in Sicily.
  • And the latest to be subjected to Pope Francis’ wrath, Raymond Arroyo of EWTN — the Catholic radio and TV founded by Mother Angelica. In his “World Over” show of February 15, 2018 on EWTN, Arroyo was critical of ultra-liberal Cardinal Blase Cupich, and of a recent speech at Georgetown University by Fr. Antonio Spadaro, Pope Francis’ confidante and mouthpiece. So Spadaro is calling for EWTN to “get rid of Raymond Arroyo,” and EWTN itself to be “interdicted”. Interdiction bans a Catholic from accessing most Church Sacraments, and is one step short of excommunication. (LifeSiteNews)

  2. I’m not at all a fan of Pope Francis but I wouldn’t read too much into the practice of tucking the cross into his sash. I’m a Catholic and ever since childhood I’ve seen pictures of popes doing this. Those crosses are usually encrusted with jewels and the sash tucking probably has more to do with not banging them around on table tops or other things. I’ve even seen pictures of Saints with their crosses tucked into sash-belts.

    • Goldbug . . . . God Bless you for stating the obvious. Although, as I have indicated before, I am not Catholic–never the less in past times all people could look to the Catholic Pope to see one who displays righteousness, and certainly was a follower of Jesus Christ. Now the entire world has been cut afloat, and there is no one in Rome to look to for comfort, and religious advice. I certainly would not vote to have him made a saint, I would rather think that Jesus Christ would not be in favor of that move either. I will be glad when he is gone, and hopefully a man of righteous intentions, and one who strictly adheres to and professes his love of the Savior is put in his stead.

      What’s going on right now truly is a travesty. We all, Catholic and non-Catholic alike, are mystified by Pope Francis’ behavior.

        That’s all the news we get of him. Chastising rape victims? Hiding his crucifix? Telling Jews that they’re saved? Telling people that homosexuality and pedophilia are no big deal?

        If I wanted to wreck the Church from the inside I couldn’t pick a better weapon. Now, just who would want something like that???????? Hmmm?.

  6. Saints are the true believers in God and keeps God’s commands. Since the Bible says we sleep till resurrection which means judgement for those to heaven or he’ll have not occurred yet. When Jesus returns will be judgement, pray we are in the first resurrection.

  14. trick question: What do Jews, Christians & Muslims all have in common??

    The Holy Father knows, & is going about the business of gathering ALL the flocks into the Ark of the Immaculate Heart in these the End of Times. He is surrounded by vipers & the wicked who spin & trash & misinterpret his every move & word. … & the devil is laughing in a comment post above me!! … really … & you think it’s @ the Holy Father?!

    The Spiritual RedPill will be the hardest to swallow.

    “The Saints are those who realize while on Earth that they can do nothing w/out Our Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ, & live accordingly.”


    • Yes indeed, the way to “gather” Jews “into the Ark of the Immaculate Heart” is to conceal the cross in your waist sash, and to joke about Christ’s crucifixion. And a real saint actually tells people he’s on the waiting list to become a saint. That’s just so humble and holy of the real saint. /sarc

      And if one has a problem with a pope declaring he’s on the waiting list to become a saint, you call that person a “viper and the wicked who spin & trash & misinterpret his every move & word”. Are you a saint too?

      By the way, about that man in the wheelchair in the video — the late Fr. Gabriele Amorth, who was Rome’s chief exorcist, said he performed a lengthy exorcism on the man AFTER Pope Francis’ laying on of hands, which means Pope Francis did NOT exorcise the man.

    • You really need to go do some research on this anti- Christ pope, or you are going to be misled. This man has said one blasphemous thing after the other, and if anyone was aware of the catalogue of evil and doublespeak that has come from his mouth, it is not really a stretch to think he could have been serious when he made this remark.
      I’ll give you a for instance…. Francis says the Jews don’t need to accept Christ to be saved. Think about that one for just one moment. If the Jews don’t need to accept Christ to be saved then what did Jesus die for? The very idea makes a mockery of Christ’s passion. That is pope Francis. A mocker of Christ.

        What little I have read about his history isn’t good. He couldn’t be more opposite Benedict if he tried. His sudden departure is HIGHLY suspect. Benedict was “Creepy”, but he was a wonderful theologian and he didn’t take heresy lightly.

        You would have NEVER seen the displays of apostasy we’ve witnessed from this one. He is definitely the New World Odor Pope.

      • On December 10, 2015, the Vatican’s Commission for Religious Relations with Jews issued a major new document pronouncing that God had never annulled his covenant with the Jewish people, and so Catholics should not try to convert Jews: “The Church is therefore obliged to view evangelization to Jews, who believe in the one God, in a different manner from that to people of other religions and world views.”

        That is nothing less than heresy.

        Luke 22: “This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in my Blood, which will be shed for you.”
        Hebrews 8:13: “In speaking of a new covenant, He makes the first one obsolete.”


        • Yes it is. He must be freelancing “Vatican III”. He is NOT a theologian. On the other hand, most Confirmation kids know this. I couldn’t agree more. I don’t know what is going to happen with this guy. Most “real” priests can’t stand him. I think that’s the idea. They think they can split the Church from the inside.

          To me it is more than suspicious for Ratzinger to quit. I didn’t like his looks, but I did know of his scholarship and it was first rate. Obviously, something underhanded happened there.

          All I know about the present one is that in his native land he got a lot of Christians killed by private armies. From what I can determine he’s always been a globalist. He certainly looks right at home with his Chabad friends.

  23. One of the hallmarks of Peter’s Chair has been a love for and respect for the laity. His willingness to issue off the cuff remarks on deeply held beliefs is unparalleled. Just as with the last Ex-cathedra Papal Pronouncement, The Assumption of Mary, in 1954 (I believe), the theologians did not agree. The Pope, gauging the beliefs of the faithful followed the beliefs of the many as they are a voice of God as well.

    Since then there have been many comments, not theologically binding, by various Popes. Usually the process is very slow and respectful. This guy acts like he cares nothing for those who disagree with him. Does that sound familiar?

    Something is VERY wrong here. It isn’t a simple little internal Church problem. This is an attack from the inside. The last time something similar happened was Vatican II. But even that, was with the collaboration of many religious scholars, not simply a Papal Idea.

    I really think the story of what happened to Benedict would be enlightening.
