Manifest reprobate “Pope” Francis tells Lutheran woman to 'talk to the Lord' in discerning whether or not to participate in Communion

Apostate Francis has caused another “controversy”—among Novus Ordites—by appearing to suggest that a Lutheran wife of a Catholic husband could receive holy Communion based on the fact that she is baptized and in accordance with her conscience. During a question and answer session at an evening prayer service held last Sunday in Rome’s heretical “Evangelical Lutheran Church”, Bergoglio was asked whether a Lutheran and Catholic married couple might “finally participate together in Communion”. The questioner referred to “the hurt we’ve felt together due to [our] difference of faith”. Francis cunningly said it was “not my competence” to give permission to do this, but quickly admitted: “I ask myself and don’t know how to respond – what you’re asking me, I ask myself the [same] question.” He then urged the Lutheran woman, Anke de Bernardinis,  to "talk to the Lord" about receiving holy Communion "and then go forward"...

Francis stressed the role of personal discernment rather than repeating Vatican II(heretical) Church teaching that Protestant spouses can only receive Holy Communion if they do not “have recourse for the sacrament” at their own “church”. He said: “There are questions that only if one is sincere with oneself and the little theological light one has, must be responded to on one’s own.”
Francis referred to a "bishop", the Protestant "Bishop" Jerónimo Podestá, who “went a little wrong – 48 years old, he married, [and then had] two children”. Francis suggested that the "bishop" had been helped in his moral journey by accompanying his family to Mass.

Rocco Palmo, on his blog, Whispers in the Loggia, said Bergoglio’s remarks “quite possibly show his hand on his intended course” on his post-synod document. A proposal to allow Anglican spouses of Catholics to receive Holy Communion had been included in the Instrumentum Laboris of the evil synod.

Indeed, it remains a mystery how millions of Catholics all over the world have not—even up till now—realised, as Father Kramer pointed out, that “Jorge Bergoglio is the Public Enemy No. 1 of the Catholic religion”. Why haven’t they if not because—just like their Papa Bergoglio—millions have equally lost the Faith?

It should be noted, however, that the abominable practice of giving Holy Communion to heretics did not originate from Bergoglio. Notorious heretics John Paul II and Benedict XVI did exactly the same thing and currently Francis is merely perfecting their evil work. For instance, John Paul II was seen publicly giving Holy Communion to the Protestant Tony Blair. On March 21, 2003 the Catholic Herald stated that John Paul II had personally given Tony Blair Holy Communion—the first time in history that a British prime minister had received the sacrament from the hands of the pontiff. The story was followed by such a flurry of denials that the newspaper was forced to withdraw the “claim” in its next issue. Yet, it was perfectly true, as the Pope's biographer Garry O'Connor discovered from several sources, including the papal chamberlain's office. Did John Paul II break “his own rules” by administering communion to an Anglican? Not quite: there was, at the time, a provision that non-Catholics could ask to receive communion "on a unique occasion for joy or for sorrow in the life of a family". Tony Blair presumably made such a request! Ironically, only two weeks after Tony Blair took communion from the heretical Pope, the Roman Curia issued fierce guidelines imposing a virtual ban on distributing communion to non-Catholics! Ah! A ban? But—two years after—during John Paul II’s burial, Benedict XVI was also seen giving Communion to the heretic brother Roger! (See the photo below).

Now the very background of all these errors can be found in the 1983 Code of Canon Law of John Paul II, which "abrogated" the 1917 Code of Canon Law of Pope Benedict XV. 844 §3 reads: 

“Catholic ministers administer the sacraments of penance, Eucharist, and anointing of the sick licitly to members of Eastern Churches which do not have full communion with the Catholic Church if they seek such on their own accord and are properly disposed. This is also valid for members of other Churches which in the judgment of the Apostolic See are in the same condition in regard to the sacraments as these Eastern Churches”.

Indeed, "Canon"  844 §2 is simply terrible! It reads:

“Whenever necessity requires it or true spiritual advantage suggests it, and provided that danger of error or indifferentism is avoided, the Christian faithful for whom it is physically or morally impossible to approach a Catholic minister are permitted to receive the sacraments of penance, Eucharist, and anointing of the sick from non-Catholic ministers in whose Churches these sacraments are valid”.

Now don’t be fooled by the “danger of error or indifferentism” rhetoric. Here, Ladies and Gentlemen, we are simply unambiguously told that “sacraments” administered in some Protestant (or simply non-Catholic) “Churches” are valid!

Now back to Francis. On October 7, 2013, the Anglican Communion News Service published a report by the Church of Ireland Gazette according to which the Novus Ordo Archbishop of Birmingham, Bernard Longley, stated that since the 1983 Novus Ordo Code of Canon Law changed the pre-Vatican II blanket prohibition against non-Catholics receiving Holy Communion and thus allowed a Protestant reception in principle, he could envision that in the future, the Vatican would expand the limited circumstances to allow a more frequent reception by heretics. Longley said:

“Given that that represents a change, and a very significant shift away from the impossibility to the limited possibility, then I could imagine and foresee one of the fruits of our ecumenical engagement as moving towards a deeper understanding of communion and a deeper sharing, a deeper communion between our Churches which perhaps would lead to reconsideration of some of the circumstances”. (Church of Ireland Gazette"Vatican's Rules on Eucharistic Sharing Could Be Further Relaxed", published at Anglican Communion News Service, Oct. 7, 2013).

These comments came at a time when "Pope" Francis  announced an extraordinary synod of bishops for October 5-19, 2014, to discuss further "reforms" in the Vatican II Church (meaning further destruction of any resemblance to the Roman Catholic Church of Pope Pius XII), specifically regarding "communion" for people in adulterous relationships, and laws governing marriage annulments. They also coincide with a decision of the German Archdiocese of Freiburg to allow public adulterers to receive their putative “sacraments”.

The Catholic Church forbids non-Catholics—let alone public heretics—from receiving Holy Communion. Pope Pius VIII, Traditi Humilitati (# 4), May 24, 1829: “Jerome used to say it this way: he who eats the Lamb outside this house will perish as did those during the flood who were not with Noah in the ark.”

Pope Gregory XVI, Commissum divinitus (# 11), May 17, 1835: “… whoever dares to depart from the unity of Peter might understand that he no longer shares in the divine mystery…‘Whoever eats the Lamb outside of this house is unholy.’”

Pope Pius IX, Amantissimus (# 3), April 8, 1862: “… whoever eats of the Lamb and is not a member of the Church, has profaned.”
