Vatican threatens to excommunicate priest for criticizing Pope Francis

About two weeks ago, I posted about Cardinal Gerhard Müller sounding the alarm that there is a “pervading sense of fear” in Pope Francis’ Curia — the administrative body of the Holy See in Vatican City, Rome. Müller had served five years as prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith until this July, when Pope Francis decided not to renew his term for reasons Müller said had never been explained to him.
Müller wasn’t exaggerating or being a false alarmist. Nearly two years ago, I’d posted about the sorry situation of the Catholic Church under Pope Francis, wherein critics are censored and threatened with excommunication.

Pope Francis hides the Crucifix meeting Israeli rabbis


Alessandro Maria Minutella, 44, is a priest in Sicily nationally known for his open criticism of Pope Francis’ controversial Amoris Laetitia “apostalic exhortation” and what Minutella calls “the false Church of modernism”.
Because of his outspoken defense of the traditional Catholic faith, Minutella was officially removed from his parish and forbidden to celebrate Mass, administer the Sacraments, or preach. He was ordered to remain silent for nine months, which he obeyed, although he was attacked and vilified by the Italian media, especially by the satirical TV show, The Hyenas.
After observing silence for 9 months, Minutella was threatened by the Curia that he would receive a “double excommunication” (whatever that means) if he did not make two public acts of fidelity to Pope Francis on social networks. Never mind the fact that pedophile and openly homosexual priests are not excommunicated. (See Pope Francis’ Vatican: a cesspool of pedophiles and homosexuals“)
On November 9, 2017, sitting at a desk with a statue of St. Michael the Archangel, Alessandro Minutella recorded this video as his impassioned response, which was broadcast on Radio Domina Nostra.

Some excerpts of Minutella’s speech:

“Since when on last June 26, 2017, my bishop, Corrado Lorefice, removed me from my role as parish priest, with immediate execution, I didn’t even have the chance to say goodbye to my parishioners and substantially was suspended . . . even though they continue to say ‘This is not a suspension! This is not a suspension!,’ when in fact it substantially is.”

Note: Corrado Lorefice was appointed Archbishop of Palermo, Sicily, by Pope Francis in October 2015. In June 2017 Lorefice donated a chapel to serve as a synagogue for the Jewish community of Naples. He has written favorably about the neo-Marxist liberation theology.
Minutella continues:

“Last March, I was obliged to remain silent on all social networks . . . for having spoken the truth on the false church. I have known moral persecution and have been practically reduced to being an exile” — his priesthood “unjustly scorned” and his reputation “ruined” and “derided”.

Minutella vows that he will continue “to raise my voice in defense of the Catholic faith which today is being jeopardized like never before,” and decries Pope Francis’ so-called “Church of Mercy” that “runs to all the Italian ports to welcome the poor immigrants, but then brings to the guillotine those who don’t adhere to its single line of thought of dictatorial nature. These people are not afraid of me who can easily be eliminated — I have no bodyguards and no defense . . . . Holy mother Church has been occupied, because we are speaking of a true invasion,” which Minutella calls a “heretical deception . . . that reevaluates Martin Luther to the point of considering him a holy reformer”.

Note: Pope Francis had declared 2016 to be a “Holy Year of Mercy”.

On the demand that he must make a public fidelity to Pope Francis on social networks or be “doubly excommunicated,” Minutella explains that in the past, he had expressed his “respect” for the pope’s “intellect” and “will,” but he cannot declare a public fidelity to “the Roman pontiff” because to do so is to go against his soul as “no one is above the Gospel”.
Using apocalyptic language, Minutella all but calls Pope Francis the False Prophet of the end days. He calls on Catholics to “all stand up” in “resistance until the end” because the battle is not “between the progressives who are in government and the ones who are suspended and excommunicated for being faithful to the Magisterium. This is the battle between the woman dressed in the sun and the infernal dragon that has launched its most subtle attack on the Church.”

Truth be known Pope Francis is a flat out Communist. More a political figure than papal.

I am certainly disgusted with this pope, he is a Marxist, and to hide the crucifix of Jesus is to deny our Savior. Too much wrong with this man.

A little off track but Cdl. Burke appears to have some issues with comrade Bergoglio and yet I have seen pics of the cardinal also concealing his crucifix when meeting Rabbis.Hmm.

When he “took people off the safe list” (AKA: Murdered them) in Argentina in the 70’s, did he lecture people on “the sacredness of life”? Read “Washington’s Pope” on globalresearch.ca.

Francis is indeed the False Prophet. Look to Francis to point out the Antichrist in the months ahead.
The Church will be in overt schism soon and Pope Benedict may be exiled.

If twenty years ago Hollywood had made a movie that did nothing more than accurately convey this pope’s many heresies, these politicized apostate bishops shilling for the Democrstic Party, and further sensationalized the film with vignettes of drug- and booze-fueled homosexual orgies in the Vatican and various bishops’ residences, Hollywood would justifiably have been condemned by all Christians as one of the greatest enemies the faith has ever faced. I hope I couldn’t be more wrong, but I get the impression most of the modernist clergy and hierarchy–heretics by definition–are effectively Teilhardists who believe that the evidence-free pseudo-scientific Darwinian fairytale… Read more »

Be sure to read carefully the links provided by Jim from FL. They thoroughly document that Pope Francis is the anti-Pope, a demonic false prophet serving the CIA and genocidal characters such as Kissinger, all of whom
promote endless Zionist wars for Israel. The 24/7 propaganda we hear
promoting Pope Francis as a man of peace, goodwill, and love is blatant
diametric hypocrisy, characteristic of communists who killed nearly 100
million European Christians in the 20th century. George Orwell must be
turning in his grave.

This sort of thing has been boiling for years now. I am a faithful Catholic, but have ZERO regard for this Pope, clearly a neo-Marxist Liberation Theology adherent. HIstorically, the Church has been resilient; thus, my fervent hope is that the Church will survive Comrade Francis as well.

It has been clear to me that the Catholic Church was successfully infiltrated with the election of John XXIII in 1958, and it’s only been downhill from there. People, whether they’re Catholic or not, need to study the history of the Second Vatican Council and the “Conciliar” Church; It is the biggest criminal fraud in all human history! That being said, FRANKENPOPE is a fraud and a thug, and my understanding is that Amoris Latitiae is an anti-Catholic and anti-Christ document. I don’t know what can be done to unseat this “Pope,” whom, according to Ann Barnhardt, is no Pope… Read more »

“Would you like to see the Pope on the end of a rope, do you think he’s a fool? ”
The Pope is a globalist scum bag, simple as that.

Look at the procession of characters who have had audiences with the Pope and profess to be great Catholics, and many choose to self-excommunicate from the current leadership in Rome.
As was already commented, things began going “awry” in the Vatican decades ago.
God has a plan for each of us, but so does Satan, and it’s our choice which plan to follow.
The Lord will be my ultimate judge, not a mortal.

Double excommunication = double secret probation.
Minutella shouldn’t fret if he is excommunicated. Being a Catholic doesn’t necessarily mean that a person’s also a Christian, and I was raised Catholic. It hit me as a teen when I wondered why the Catholic church doesn’t cover the Book of Revelation at all.

I myself must admit that I am not catholic. If I had to label myself, I would probably call myself an evangelical fundamentalist. I know, that doesn’t say much, but to me it says a lot. It says that I believe that the mission of the church today is to spread the Gospel of the Salvation through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, as told in the Bible. The fundamentalist part means that I believe that the Word of God is the Bible, inerrant in it’s original form, complete, unchangeable, and able to be understood by the common everyday person.… Read more »
