It seems Pope Francis has already began the process of giving Catholic faithfuls yet another dead body to pray to.
The catholic doctrine on death says the dead would either go to Heaven after death or depending on the ‘multitude of your sins’, you are ‘stored’ in purgatory to pay off your sins before St. Peter opens to pearly gates for you.
Pope Francis offered a special blessing for Mother Angelica following her death on Easter Sunday, expressing his confidence that she is already in heaven.
“She’s in heaven.” The Pope pointed to the sky as he spoke these words to members of EWTN’s Rome bureau, who brought an image of the late Poor Clare nun to his March 30 general audience as a sign of affection and remembrance.
Mother Mary Angelica of the Annunciation founded the Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN), in 1981, and it has since become the largest religious media network in the world. She passed away March 27 after a lengthy struggle with the aftereffects of a stroke. She was 92 years old.
Although Francis has expressed his belief that Mother Angelica is already in heaven, the formal process for declaring her a saint has yet to begin.
Once a cause for her canonization officially opens, the facts and details of her life, as well as the testimonies from those around her, must be obtained and gathered into a lengthy report called a “positio” or “position” and presented to the Vatican’s Congregation for the Causes of Saints. 1
So according to the Catholic faith, soon, Catholic faithfuls will be officially given permission to pray through her. Any catholic defendant will claim they do not pray ‘to’ but ‘through’ them. Just like it is easier to ask the mother for favors from the Son when forgetting the mother is lying in the grave.
The Bible though gives a very different plot series after the death of a person. According to the Bible, when a person dies, their soul goes to sleep awaiting the coming of Christ to the resurrection of life or damnation.
Psalm 146:3 Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.
4 His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish.
Ecclesiastes 9:5 For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten.
6 Also their love, and their hatred, and their envy, is now perished; neither have they any more a portion for ever in any thing that is done under the sun.
The dead cannot give thanks to God.
Psalms 6:5 For in death there is no remembrance of thee: in the grave who shall give thee thanks?
Psalms 115:17 The dead praise not the LORD, neither any that go down into silence.
Daniel 12:2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
Matthew 27:52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,
Christ himself represented death as a sleep saying Lazarus was asleep in death. Lazarus would have remained unconscious sleeping in the grave until the resurrection had he not been raised by Christ.
John 11:11 Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep.
12 Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well.
13 Howbeit Jesus spake of his death: but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep.
14 Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead.
24 Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.
This is yet another nail on the coffin of this pagan religious system that is deceiving the people of the world.
