The Holy Father will be joining us in Philadelphia for the World Meeting of Families in 2015!
“Go to God for yourselves; pray for divine enlightenment, that you may know that you do know what is truth, that when the wonderful miracle-working power shall be displayed, and the enemy shall come as an angel of light, you may distinguish between the genuine work of God and the imitative work or the powers of darkness. …
“A world is to be warned, and when the third angel’s message goes forth with a loud cry, minds will be fully prepared to make decisions for or against the truth. The great change is to be made by Satan and his evil angels, united with evil men who will fix their destiny by making void the law of God in the face of convincing evidence from His Word that it is unchangeable and eternal.” Selected Messages, Book 3, 389, 390.
The first Pope of the Americas Jorge Mario Bergoglio hails from Argentina. The 76-year-old Jesuit Archbishop of Buenos Aires is a prominent figure throughout the continent, yet remains a simple pastor who is deeply loved by his diocese, throughout which he has traveled extensively on the underground and by bus during the 15 years of his episcopal ministry.
So read the headlines of the World Meeting of Families 2015 Philadelphia.
The Philadelphia schedule closes the 6-day Apostolic Journey of Pope Francis to the United States of America. He is planning on conducting a mass at the cathedral church (the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul) and meeting with bishops at Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary.
It is ironic that as the head of the Catholic Church, the pope also plans to speak at Independence Hall about religious freedom and immigration. This is the same man who, on the Vatican Radio told the Italian president that the orderly development of “a civil, pluralistic society requires” that the “authentic spirit of religion” not be “confined” to “personal conscience …”
Previously, in his Encyclical Letter of August 15, 1854, Pope Pius IX wrote, “The absurd and erroneous doctrines or ravings in defense of liberty of conscience, are a most pestilential error—a pest, of all others, most to be dreaded in a State.”
“Top Vatican adviser Jeffrey Sachs says that when Pope Francis visits the United States in September, he will directly challenge the ‘American idea’ of God-given rights embodied in the Declaration of Independence.” – Reported by Cliff Kincaid, Western Journalism, May 19, 2015.
The concerns of the founders of the Constitution of the United States of America to protect the citizens by preventing big church to have a say in the governing of the people is still relevant today. This country, the protector of religious freedom is under a blatant attack.
“Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke as a dragon. And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. … He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads. … Here is wisdom, Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.” Revelation 13:11–18.
