On Sunday Pope Francis at his sermon warned Catholics that the crucifix is not just something decorative to hang on the wall or wear, but an important sign of catholic beliefs – and should be truly looked at and prayed before as the source of our salvation.(Crux.com)
“Today’s Gospel invites us to turn our gaze to the crucifix, which is not an ornamental object or clothing accessory – sometimes abused! – but a religious sign to be contemplated and understood,” the pope said March 18.
“The image of Jesus crucified reveals the mystery of the death of the Son of God as the supreme act of love, the source of life and salvation for humanity of all times. In his wounds we have been healed.”
Pope Francis addressed around 20,000 people gathered in St. Peter’s Square for the Sunday Angelus.
Here is the Pope not only endorsing but strongly udging catholics to bow down before idols of men in the name of reflecting upon Christ.
Exo 20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:
It is no wonder that this commandment is not found anywhere in the Catholic Catechism.
As the Pope puts it, the idols are a critical part of the Catholic faith, without wooden sculptures to bow down to, without dead bones of alleged saints to pray to, without prayers to the dead, Catholicism as a faith does not exist.
Catholicism faith as God describes her is the mother of all Harlots.
Rev_17:5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
God still calls all of those who are lost in the catholic deception to walk out.
Rev 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
