“Catholics persecuted and denounced the Pentecostals, almost as if they were crazy,” Francis said. “I am the shepherd of the Catholics and I ask you to forgive my Catholic brothers and sisters who did not understand and were tempted by the devil.” – July 28, 2014
“As the bishop of Rome and pastor of the Catholic Church, I would like to invoke mercy and forgiveness for the non-evangelical behavior of Catholics toward Christians of other churches,” he said. “At the same time, I invite all Catholic brothers and sisters to forgive if today, or in the past, they have suffered offense by other Christians.”January 25, 2016.
“He said, ‘I can’t really bless you, because we’re brother bishops.’ He actually called us his brother bishops,” Says Roberts, a Protestant Minister. Roberts said the group met with Pope Francis for more than an hour and shared lunch in his private dining room at Casa Santa Marta, his Vatican residence. The main topics at the meeting, which occurred during the recent Synod, were family and Christian unity. “He said, No. 1, that we as believers, as Christians, have to stop talking bad about each other and being condescending,” Roberts recalled. “No. 2, we need to find a good Catholic that we can just fellowship with and develop a relationship with.” – October 31, 2014.
“Have these persons forgotten the claim of infallibility put forth for eight hundred years by this haughty power? The papal church will never relinquish her claim to infallibility. All that she has done in her persecution; and would she not repeat the same acts, should the opportunity be presented? Let the restraints now imposed by secular governments be removed and Rome be reinstated in her former power, and there would speedily be a revival of her tyranny and persecution. Protestants have made compromises and concessions which papists themselves are surprised to see and fail to understand. Men are closing their eyes to the real character of Romanism and the dangers to be apprehended from her supremacy. The people need to be aroused to resist the advances of this most dangerous foe to civil and religious liberty.” – G C, pg 564.

“Romanism is now regarded by Protestants with far greater favor than in former years. The papists are taking a conciliatory course in order to gain influence; Many urge that it is unjust to judge the church of today by the abominations and absurdities that marked her reign during the centuries of ignorance and darkness. They excuse her horrible cruelty as the result of the barbarism of the times and plead that the influence of modern civilization has changed her sentiments” – Great Controversy, pg 564.
