An earlier post reasoned and deduced that the Illuminati, directly or through the agency of the secret societies, had conquered the final and most priced throne, that of St. Peter. This post is about another throne, that of the kingdom of Hawai’i, which is quite unique in that its last king was worshipful master and at the same time king.
The author and owner of this The WAR Blog, whilst he sojourned in Hawai’i, happened one day to meet a certain man and during their conversation, noticed that the man was wearing a Masonic ring on his right ring finger [4th digit]. This was a ring that just could not escape notice because Shaquille O’Neal [Shaq] had shown off his own version of this very distinctive ring on National TV:
The man then proceeded to say that he was a 32nd Degree Mason and that such a degree is acquired through study. He also mentioned a nearby lodge in Honolulu and he then revealed something very surprising, which was that King David Kalākaua, the Merrie Monarch, the last king of the Kingdom of Hawaiʻi, was a Freemason and that there were “Masonic stuff” around the base of his statue in Waikiki. The statue is erected in the Waikiki Gateway Park between Kuhio Ave and Kalākaua Ave.
Well, that statue had to be visited and below are the pictures that were taken:
“In 1879, with full Masonic rites, the cornerstone of Iolani Palace was laid, and Kalākaua’s temple, Lodgele Progres De l’Oceanie, still meets today on the palace grounds.
“I think they used to meet in the attic,” said Diamond.
There was a practical reason for Kalākaua’s lodge activities. The monarchs of Europe were also enthusiastic Masons, and through the organization, Kalākaua cemented fraternal ties with other royalty.
“When the Honolulu Masons contacted us and asked if they could loan us the Kalākaua Masonic items, it helped created(sic) the exhibit,” Diamond said. “We don’t normally get the chance to tell this part of the story.”
“Kings and potentates, they’re all Masons,” said Lovell. “And here we’d found these items hidden away, just gathering dust.”
There were no guns in the gun safe, by the way. Lovell, who’s in charge of indexing and filing for the organization, thinks it was used as “a hasty attempt to preserve these items at least a half-century ago. It wasn’t climate-controlled and there’s some degradation.
“We’re finding out that Freemasons were integral to the history of modern Hawaii,” Lovell said. “Many of the best-known leaders during the royal era were Masons.”
That doesn’t mean they were on the same page. During the overthrow of the Hawaiian monarchy, Lovell pointed out, there were Masonic lodges fighting on both sides.
(All emphases mine).
That David Kalākaua was a Mason may perhaps explain why and how he ascended to the throne when there were more eligible claimants than he.
Illuminati: Members of Grand Orient Lodges who have been initiated into “The Order and Sect of the Illuminati”. They are a small but powerful group which Include international-minded bankers, industrialists, scientists, military and political leaders, educators, economists, etc. They are men who have accepted the Luciferian plan for the rule of Creation as being preferable to that of Almighty God. They worship Lucifer as required by Albert Pike in his book “Morals and Dogmas”. They acknowledge the authority of no mortal except their leader. They give loyalty to no nation. They direct the CONTINUING LUCIFERIAN CONSPIRACY to prevent God’s plan, for the rule of Creation, being put into practice; they plot to obtain absolute control of this world and everything in it. They use ALL subversive movements to divide masses of the people into opposing camps on political, social, racial, economic, and religious issues, then arm them, and make them fight and destroy each other. They hope to make humanity follow this process of self-destruction until all existing political and religious Institutions have been eliminated. They then plan to crown THEIR leader King-despot of the entire world and enforce the Luciferian dictatorship with Satanic despotism.
Illuminism: The name given to the special rites as written by Professor Adam Weishaupt of Frankfort, Germany, at the instigation of the men who in 1773 constituted the High Priests of Satanism. The ritual of the Illuminati was introduced into the Bavarian Grand Lodge in 1776 as a preliminary step towards infiltrating Grand Orient Lodges into French Freemasonry for the purpose of furthering the plans for ‘The Great French Revolution’ which was scheduled to take place in 1789: A modern version of “The Black Mass” was introduced by Gen. Albert Pike 1871.
International Money-lenders: The Illuminati and their agentur who by reason of their cartels and combines and the use of usury have obtained control of the monetary systems and economy of the so called “Free Nations”. They lead the people of those Nations slowly into economic bondage so they can ultimately enslave them; body, mind, and soul.
After 235 years, 10 months, 13,19 days to 13,19.III.2013, the beginning of the pontificate of Pope Francis, the 266th Pope of the Catholic Church, the plan to destroy all the thrones and overturn all the altars in Europe[i] has met with incredible success with the conquering of the final and most priced throne, that of St. Peter.
The Illuminati have taken over the Papacy and placed an agent of their own on the Chair of St. Peter. Pope Francis is an Illuminist ILLUMINATI PRIEST (ed. 6/5/2019).
“Masonry, like all the Religions, all the Mysteries, Hermeticism and Alchemy, conceals its secrets from all except the Adepts and Sages, or the Elect, and uses false explanations and misinterpretations of its symbols to mislead those who deserve only to be misled; to conceal the Truth, which it calls Light from them and to draw them away from it. p.104-5”
The details of the cross are rooted in the Gospel of Luke. That is, the parable of the good shepherd and the lost sheep. Luke 15: 4-7 – What man among you having a hundred sheep and losing one of them would not leave the ninety-nine in the desert and go after the lost one until he finds it?
In the center is the figure of a man who represents Jesus, the good shepherd, who is carrying the lost sheep around his neck while the other sheep follow closely. At the very top of the cross is a dove coming down which represents the Holy Spirit coming down from God the Father to God the Son and helping out those who are lost and in darkness and bringing them new life! The linear style is intended to be a symbol for a new ecclesiastical era, a poor Church among the poor, as Pope Francis has indicated. […]
Earlier, they explained ‘Why this Papal Pectoral cross is different’:
For centuries popes, cardinals, and bishops wore the pectoral cross as a sign of authority and prestige amongst other clergy members. In fact, one of the first popes to wear a papal pectoral cross was Pope Leo III, in the year 811. He was given the cross as a gift from Nicephorus, the Patriarch of Constantinople. The cross was made gold and soon became customary for [a] pope to wear a pectoral cross. Since then the pectoral cross has been adorned with gold jewels and precious stones.
With that being said, we can gather that Pope Francis pectoral cross is definitely different from the past. You can see that there is no gold on his pectoral cross nor any precious stones or jewels. Only a simple and humble soul could turn down a solid gold pectoral which is exactly what he did. His Excellency chose to keep the same papal pectoral cross he had [worn] for many years as archbishop and cardinal in Argentina.
The same image Pope Francis selected for his pectoral cross, this pewter-on-wood Jesus the Good Shepherd cross has been designed just for your home. The image is a favorite because it was found painted in the Roman catacombs and is one of the earliest artistic depictions of Jesus by Christians. […]
A Google image search for “Good Shepherd catacombs” returns images that are quite different from the image on Pope Francis’ pectoral cross. A capture of some below:
The Good Shepherd of the catacombs would have inspired a cross like the following:
In his encyclical Humanum Genus (April 20, 1884) on Freemasonry, Pope Leo XIII teaches that since the fall of man, they have been two sides/Kingdoms/(St. Augustine’s two cities), which are in conflict with one another. The one is the kingdom of God on earth, namely, the true Church of Jesus Christ contending with the kingdom of Satan. The pope then goes on to teach that even in his day, the latter was led on or assisted by that strongly organized and widespread association called the Freemasons.[ii]
Since the catacombs’ images are quite different from the image on Pope Francis’ pectoral cross, let’s examine the other side to see whether the inspiration for this image is from them. The man in the image appears to make “X” across his chest. So what then does “X” symbolize? The Illuminati is a secret society within the secret society of Freemasonry, and Adam Weishaupt, having been disillusioned with Freemasonry, upon founding the Illuminati, synthesized many of the elements from the ancient mystery religions. One the symbolism of “X” is its association with death and the Egyptian god Osiris and it turns out that:
Osiris was the good shepherd who was loved by his people and it was felt that paying homage and venerating him would help Egypt and Egyptians to be successful. […][iii]
And here is his image:
Now we are left to explain the “dove”.
Osiris’ sister/wife is Isis who, even though a dove is one of her sacred birds’ symbols[iv], often takes the form of the black kite. The image on Pope Francis’ pectoral cross is taken from the depiction of her fanning renewed life into Osiris with her wings[v].
This, therefore, ascertains the fact that beyond their wildest dreams, the Illuminati have taken over the Papacy and placed an agent of their own on the Chair of St. Peter.
POPE FRANCIS IS AN ILLUMINIST.
[PS There is a “13” – Satan’s number, a number for them that signifies rebellion, apostasy, defection, corruption, disintegration, and revolution – on the clothing below the waist (see tweet embedded below). What is the bent image between the “1” and “3”? If it is what I think it is [a serpentine head phallus (ed. 6/5/19)] then the image is deciphered completely: The god of the underworld and the dead with his captive cadaverous sheep and his Antichrist are in place of Christ, God, the Good Shepherd.]
What remains is speculate on (ed. 6/5/19) [H]is degree:
Since god Osiris on the Pectoral Cross makes an “X”, Pope Francis could belong to one of the following degrees:
I will put my money on him being an Pope Francis is an Illuminati Priest (3rd Class: Mysteries) [ed. 6/5/2019].
POPE FRANCIS IS AN ILLUMINISTILLUMINATI PRIEST (ed. 6/5/2019) and AN APOSTATE BISHOP[vi].
And now, a lot of things make sense and can be explained.
The dragon, the beast, and the false prophet signify Satan, Antichrist, and the principle apostle of Antichrist. These three different beings command all the other demons. In the work of our redemption, the three divine persons of the adorable Trinity manifested themselves. The Son adores the Father; the Holy host gives glory to the Son. And we see that in the mystery of iniquity Antichrist adores Satan and the false prophet glorifies Antichrist. Hence we have every reason to show that this false prophet will be an individual person and not a collective term to designate the universality of preachers engaged in the service of Antichrist. We can assert that he will not be a king, nor a general of an army, but a clever apostate, fallen from the episcopal dignity. From being an apostle of the Gospel he will become the first preacher of the false messiah. – TAN | HISTORY OF ANTICHRIST by Rev. P. Huchedé > Chapter 2 – The Action > ARTICLE II – CONTEST AND RELIGIOUS SWAY OF ANTICHRIST > 2. his Apostles pg. 24
Every time Bergoglio speaks, even Novus Ordo Catholics scratch their heads. Wherever his theology comes from, it’s not remotely Catholic – much less Christian. It’s as if he’s making it up as he goes along. His real passion is actually pushing exactly the same Western Globalist agendas as politicians like Merkel, Obama, and Cameron.
Today, for instance, he condemned people who speak of Europe’s ‘Christian roots’, heavily implying that’s fascist.
Hm. I hadn’t thought about it, but now that you mention it, that’s exactly the kind of thing certain rabbis would say. It’s just more evidence that the Catholic Church no longer exists. Bergoglio is a fraud, presiding over another Disneyland theme park just as rife with mind control and pedophile issues wrapped up in a simulacrum.
‘Pope’ Francis says ISIS is just like Jesus sending out his disciples.

Luis said (May 23, 2016):
Absolutely Dr. Henry, Bergoglio is a Gnostic, always speaks with double talking, semantic deception, using, of course, Christian terminology to fool people…..not many people have decoded this deception, which for me is the most cunning and deceptive (but so obvious for those who have studied the cabala, it’s development into Gnosticism and how it is used now in Christian churches to fool people…
Bergoglio is the biblical false prophet, who is dragging into apostasy as many Catholics (and others) possible…plus he is working [on] building a universal church, by having endless meeting with leaders of others faiths and creeds. Simon Peres in 2013 asked him if he wanted to be the symbolic leader of this universal religion…we don’t know what the answer was!!!
The true pope is Benedict XVI, which never left the Vatican…there are many prophecies stating that in some point Catholics would have to choose between a false pope and a true one, that we would have two popes at the same time (St. Catherine Emmerich for example)…
Pius X 1905 vision of a future pope…Pius saw this man crying and praying alone in the Vatican and that he would be martyred in the end of tribulations…Pius said that this future pope would share the same name as his – Giuseppe/Joseph…so it is Benedict XVI !!!
ROME, July 12, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – An atheist philosopher friend of Benedict XVI has strongly criticized Pope Francis, accusing the Holy Father of not preaching the Gospel but politics, fomenting schism, and issuing secularist statements aimed at destroying the West.
In a fiery interview published July 10 in Mattino di Napoli, Marcello Pera, who co-wrote the famous 2005 book Without Roots with then-Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, said he cannot understand the Pope who, he said, goes beyond the bounds of “rational comprehension.”
A philosophy professor, member of Silvio Berlusconi’s Forza Italia party, and a former president of the Italian Senate, Pera said he believes the reason why the Pope calls for unlimited immigration is because he “hates the West” and is seeking to do all he can “to destroy it.”
He added that he does not like the Pope’s magisterium, saying it is “not the Gospel, only politics,” and that Francis is “little or not at all interested in Christianity as doctrine, in its theological aspect.”
“His statements appear to be based on Scripture,” he said, but “actually they are strongly secularist.”
In this week’s interview, Pera said he believes the open doors approach to migrants that the Pope is advancing will lead to a “bad reaction” with no desirable solution. He said the Pope’s positions underline that he is not in “perfect harmony” with “conservative Catholics and the rest of the Church.”
Bergoglio is not a Christian, much less a Catholic. His brand of religion is some kind of bizarre Jebbie-socialist-Gnostic mash-up, and his leadership style is that of a petty, little dictator. That’s why the Jews and Freemasons in Argentina love him, and they schemed with the St. Gallen mafia to get him elected. So don’t be shocked by any of this. July 14, 2017 at 10:16 PM
Pubblico qui sotto un video di una tv argentina, pregando i lettori di andare direttamente al minuto 20:50. Il signore coi capelli grigi , Juan Bautista “Tata” Yofre (71 anni), non è un analista politico qualunque: in Argentina è stato Segretario del la Inteligencia del Estado, insomma dei servizi, dal 1989-1990, poi ambasciatore durante il governo Menem.
Ebbene: dopo il minuto 230:50, l’ex capo dei servizi racconta:
Ho avuto un incontro col capo del’intelligenc del VAticano, perché Beglglio ha un capo dell’ntelligence, io lo conosco…E’ un civile”, precisa rispondendo alla domanda di Mainhard, sesia un sacerdote. “che mi ha detto: io sono massone. E il papa anche”.
Penso sia una testimonianza da non sottovalutare.
Dal sito di maurizio blondet. Mio commento: vero o falso? Si può indagare, almeno? Aggiungo che, a norma di diritto canonico, un massone non è per forza un delinquente, ma credo non possa fare il prete. Forse potrebbe essere scomunicato. E non ritengo uno scomunicato possa essere eletto papa.
I’m still waiting for a book called “The Freemason Pope” to be released. Bergoglio is a [M]ason in case many of you didn’t know this. (most people have no clue) – His ties to freemasonry would also explain many of the characteristics explained in this book.
So, where is this love they hold for Islam? Their love for Islam runs in parallel with their misuse of Christianity, which truly means that their false love for Islam is nothing but a deceiving tool allowing them to use the religion of Mohamed as the executioner that will wipe out the Christians and the Jews from the face of the earth. They, the Muslims, will be doing the dirty work for the same group of people who did not hesitate to kill 500,000 Iraqis between 2003 and 2011. If they succeeded in accomplishing this plot, the elite would move on to find a way to rid themselves of those same Muslims they used to carry out and cover their evils. In fact, Francis and Obama honor an entirely different doctrine that has roots in Gnosticism and Kabbalah, but this is a whole different subject which very few can come to accept as truth.

Then on Monday, a high-ranking figure in the Bulgarian Orthodox church, Metropolitan Nikolai of Plovdiv, dismissed the pope’s visit as political and condemned in harsh terms his efforts to improve ties between the churches.
“The goal of all of this is to unite all the religions around the pope, so that when the Antichrist comes, for the pope to welcome him, and through him, all who are coming along with him,” Nikolai told a congregation in a church in Plovdiv, Bulgaria’s second-largest city.
Can. 1374 A person who joins an association which plots against the Church is to be punished with a just penalty; however, a person who promotes or directs an association of this kind is to be punished with an interdict.
[Blessed Anna Katharina Emmerick] once said: I see so many ecclesiastics under the ban of excommunication! But they seem quite at their ease, almost unconscious of their state; and yet, all who join associations, take part in enterprises, or adhere to opinions condemned by the Church, are really excommunicated by that fact itself. I see such men hemmed in, as it were, by a wall of fog. By this we may clearly see what account God makes of the decrees, orders, and prohibitions of the Head of the Church and how rigorously He exacts their observance, whilst men coolly mock and scoff at them. – The Life And Revelations Of Anne Catherine Emmerich Complete
On the evening of October 1st, the Pilgrim found her exhausted and bathed in perspiration from her heavy spiritual labors. She repeated that St. Michael, besides the seven days’ task, had prescribed certain alms, pointing out what children were to be assisted and what each one was to receive. “The Church,” she groaned, “is in great danger. I must ask everyone who comes to see me say an Our Father for that intention. We must pray that the Pope may not leave Rome, for unheard-of evils would result from such a step. We must pray the Holy Ghost to enlighten him, for they are even now trying to exact something of him. The Protestant doctrine, as also that of the Greeks, is spreading everywhere. Two men live at this time who long to ruin the Church, but they have lost one who used to help them with his pen. He was killed by a young man about a year ago, and one of the two men of whom I speak left Germany at the same time. They have their employees everywhere. The little black man in Rome, whom I see so often, has many working for him without their clearly knowing for what end. He has his agents in the new black church also. If the Pope leaves Rome, the enemies of the Church will get the upper hand. I see the little black man in his own country committing many thefts and falsifying things generally. Religion is there so skillfully undermined and stifled that there are scarcely one hundred faithful priests. I cannot say how it is, but I see fog and darkness increasing. There are, however, three churches that they cannot seize: St. Peter’s, St. Mary-Major’s and St. Michael’s. Although they are constantly trying to undermine them, they will not succeed. I help not. All must be rebuilt soon for everyone, even ecclesiastics are laboring to destroy – ruin is at hand.The two enemies of the Church who have lost their accomplice are firmly resolved to destroy the pious and learned men that stand in their way.”
When the Pilgrim visited Sister Emmerich on October 4th, he found her perfectly worn out by the exertions of the preceding night. That St. Michael’s commands were being fulfilled, was very evident. “I have had combats more terrible,” she said, “than any I have ever endured, and I am almost dead. I cannot say how fearfully I have suffered. This struggle was shown me long ago under the symbol of a person buffeted by demons, and now I know it was myself. I fought against a whole legion of devils who excite minds against me and do all they can to harass me. I have also undertaken too many prayers. They want to install bad Bishops. In one place they want to turn a Catholic church into a Lutheran meetinghouse. I must pray, suffer, and struggle against this, for such is my present task. If the Saints did not assist me, I could not endure it. I should be overcome, and that would be most grievous to me! I see the devil using every artifice to put me to shame. He is continually sending all sorts of people to visit me, to torment and wear me out.

2. Already the 450th anniversary of the Augsburg Confession in 1980 offered both Lutherans and Catholics the opportunity to develop a common understanding of the foundational truths of the faith by pointing to Jesus Christ as the living center of our Christian faith.(1) On the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s birth in 1983, the international dialogue between Roman Catholics and Lutherans jointly affirmed a number of Luther’s essential concerns. The commission’s report designated him “Witness to Jesus Christ” and declared, “Christians, whether Protestant or Catholic, cannot disregard the person and the message of this man.”(2)
29. Implicit rapprochement with Luther’s concerns has led to a new evaluation of his catholicity, which took place in the context of recognizing that his intention was to reform, not to divide, the church. This is evident in the statements of Johannes Cardinal Willebrands and Pope John Paul II.(7) The rediscovery of these two central characteristics of his person and theology led to a new ecumenical understanding of Luther as a “witness to the gospel.”
[Obviously, when one reads The text of Pope John Paul II’s letter marking the 500th anniversary of the birth of Martin Luther, translated from the Italian by UPI, there is no such evidence from the letter of the great and saintly Pope St. John Paul II which states, ‘For the Catholic Church through the centuries the name of Martin Luther is tied to the memory of a sad period and, in particular, to the experience of the origin of deep ecclesiastical divisions.’ and ‘In the first place it is important to continue accurate historical work, It is a question of, through an investigation without taking sides, motivated only by the search for truth, arriving at a just image of the Reformer, of the entire epoch of the Reformation and of the people who were involved in it.
Guilt, where it exists, must be recognized, on whichever side it is found where polemics have clouded the view, the direction of this view must be corrected and independently by one side or the other.’]
The process by which memes go viral has not changed much since the 16th century. On October 31st 1517 Martin Luther, a monk at the University of Wittenberg, wrote out a list of 95 theses objecting to the indulgences authorised by the pope to raise money for building St Peter’s Basilica. The story that Luther nailed his theses to the door of Wittenberg’s Castle Church (as depicted here) may be apocryphal. But, in the equivalent of an ill-judged late-night tweet, he did send a copy to Archbishop Albert of Mainz, who was taking a cut of the indulgences. Soon Luther and Albert’s allies were engaged in a flame-war using the pre-eminent social-media platform of the time: pamphlets. As usual, things escalated. The pope had Luther convicted of heresy. Luther called the pope the Antichrist. German peasants and princes defected to Luther’s side, and Europe was plunged into more than a century of savage war between Catholics and Protestants.
Now, 500 years on, the Reformation has the soft glow of history. Commemorative events are planned across Germany in 2017. Some will celebrate reconciliation: on March 11th Germany’s head Lutheran and Catholic bishops will lead a service dedicated to the “process of healing of memory”. Pope Francis got that process moving in 2016, with a visit to Lutheran Sweden.
Some Catholic clergy still object to such ecumenical gestures. After all, Luther tore apart their church by insisting that the pope had no more say than any other Christian. Yet most practising Protestants and Catholics today feel they are on the same side, largely because they are among the few Europeans interested in Christianity at all. In most of Europe less than a third of the population considers religion an important part of life. Eastern Germany, Luther’s homeland, may be the world’s least religious region, according to one study.
Today few secular Europeans understand the reasons for the split in the church, or the logic of Luther’s doctrine that only faith, not good deeds, leads to salvation. They are far removed from a world where “good deeds” might mean coughing up your savings for a promise that God will release your late relatives from their suffering in the afterlife. For that matter, a few years ago, Europeans thought themselves long past the stage of resorting to violence over religion. That was premature. Intolerance, corruption and religious upheaval are all making a comeback, and not just in the Middle East. Time to bone up on our Luther.(My emphasis)
– Article 3 (of the fourteen regulatory articles), dedicated to ongoing formation and vocational discernment, stipulates that contemplative sisters may attend courses “outside their monastery, always conducting themselves in a way fitting and consistent with their own charism”, and that “the recruitment of candidates from other countries solely for the sake of ensuring the survival of a monastery is to be absolutely avoided”. – Summary of the Apostolic Constitution Vultum Dei quaerere, 22.07.2016
Can I exhort you in any way that can help? St Basil has a great homily on the text: Only take heed to yourself and guard your soul diligently (Deut 4:9). We must attend to our own dispositions first. The Desert Fathers have several stories in which a young monk secures his eternal salvation through the heroic meekness of his obedience to a seriously flawed abba. And he ends by bringing about the repentance and salvation of his abba too. We must not let ourselves be tempted into any reaction of hostility to Pope Francis, lest we become part of the devil’s game. This deeply flawed Holy Father too we must honour, and carry in charity, and pray for. With God nothing shall be impossible. Who knows whether God has got Jorge Bergoglio into this position in order to find a sufficient number to pray efficaciously for the salvation of his soul?
I notice that Cardinals Müller and Sarah and Pell are silent. What wisdom their may be in that—for the time being.
Meanwhile, you who have responsibilities in the governance of the Church, will have to make practical dispositions in regard to the thorny issues of AL. First of all, in our own minds, we should have no doubt what the real teaching of the Gospel is, and ever will be. Obviously, whatever strategy of pressing for an official clarification of projected pastoral practice that can be devised, must be tried. I particularly urge this on bishops. Remember how they compromised themselves with their statements about ‘conscience’ in the 1970s? Some of you may find yourselves in very difficult situations in regard to your peers, almost calling for the virtues of a confessor of the faith. Are you ready for the whipping, figuratively speaking, you may incur? You could of course, choose the illusory safety of conventional shallowness and superficial good cheer, a great temptation of ecclesiastics as company men. I don’t advise it. The times are serious, reverend fathers, perhaps much more serious than we suspect. We are being put to the test. The Lord is here. He is calling you. – Source: http://newmanparish.org/Response-to-Amoris-Laetitia.pdf (404 Not Found) | PDF

The Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, said the Vatican norms are meant for traditional liturgies in Catholic communities, not necessarily a unique papal Mass where the overall message is one of universal brotherhood and the love of God for all his children.
“We must always take the pastoral context into account,” Lombardi said in an email. “Norms that are appropriate for a parish celebration aren’t to be considered binding on a very unique celebration of the pope in a refugee center with a non-Christian majority.” – Pope Washes Feet of Muslim Migrants, Says ‘We Are […] by LUIGI NAVARRO AND NICOLE WINFIELD, ASSOCIATED PRESS, CASTELNUOVO DI PORTO, Italy — Mar 24, 2016, 5:16 PM ET
