According to Vatican Radio, Pope Francis received an early Christmas present on Wednesday when it was announced that he will be awarded the 2016 International Charlemagne Prize of Aachen, “the oldest and best-known prize awarded for work done in the service of European unification.”
A communiqué issued by the Prize Committee, as reported by Catholic News Service states:
In a time when the European Union is facing the greatest challenge of the 21st century, it is the pope ‘from the end of the world’ who orients millions of Europeans to what the European Union brings together at its core: a valid system of values, respect for human dignity and civil liberties, the uniqueness of human beings whatever their ethnic, religious or cultural background and respect for our natural resources.”
The communiqué went on to commend Francis for his message of “peace and understanding” as well as “compassion, tolerance, solidarity and the integrity of creation throughout his pontificate.”
In other words, the current Bishop of Rome is precisely the sort of environmentalist / humanist / one-world-religionist the committee had in mind when it began surveying the landscape for potential awardees.
Following Wednesday’s announcement, Rev. Federico Lombardi told journalists that the pope accepted the award as “a sign of encouragement for peace in Europe and the world.”
According to the organization’s website:
The Charlemagne Prize honors exceptional work performed in the service of European unity. According to its bylaws, it is given to public figures or bodies ‘distinguished by their outstanding work toward European unity or cooperation between its states.’ The contribution, as Kurt Pfeiffer emphasized, can be ‘made in the areas of literature, science, economics or politics.’
The prize is not intended for those who resemble the Apostles in proclaiming eternal truths, in season and out, in the name of Jesus Christ, the solitary Source of authentic peace and unity; rather, it is given to men with far more worldly aspirations.
On this note, one must concede that the committee has chosen well.
As recipient of this year’s International Charlemagne Prize, Francis has big shoes to fill as he succeeds 2015 awardee and former chairman of the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats (otherwise known as the S&D for short), Martin Shultz.
According to a position paper issued by the S&D:
We will fight against the regressive campaigns of conservative and right – wing forces in Europe, who want to erase the progress made in our societies, most prominently on the rights of women, minorities or LGBT people … We will fight against any kind of discrimination, racism and homophobia.
According to yet another S&D statement:
We, the undersigned, committed to the EU values of human dignity, freedom, democracy, equality, the rule of law and the respect for human rights declare that: ALL OF US believe that women can only be truly equal to men if they are given control over their sexuality, bodies and health … [We] are concerned about the recent developments and initiatives aimed at introducing regressive policies restricting women’s access to safe and legal abortions.
This is the company Pope Francis keeps; not in an effort to seek their conversion to Christ, but as one among friends united in a common cause.
Incidentally, Martin Shultz is the current President of the European Parliament, which in March of this year, under his leadership, adopted a report echoing much the same language calling for “ready access to contraception and abortion.”
Readers may recall that Pope Francis delivered an address to this body back in November of 2014; a less-than-thirty minute affair that was interrupted some fourteen times by the rousing applause of its members. (I wrote about that speech in some detail HERE.)
Were the parliamentarians cheering Jesus Christ at the behest of His Vicar?
Surely I jest!
Our Blessed Lord’s name wasn’t mentioned even once in a text of some 3,700 words. Neither was the Holy Catholic Church mentioned, just in case you were wondering.
By contrast, humanity, humans, man, etc. were invoked nearly three dozen times!
Not surprisingly, the communiqué issued by the International Charlemagne Prize Committee specifically referenced this speech in announcing its intention to add to the already robust collection of awards given to Francis during his relatively brief pontificate.
Already he has been named “Man of the Year” by PETA, The Advocate, Time, Rolling Stone, and perhaps most fitting of all for a man of such soaring humility, Vanity Fair; just to name a few.
As the earthbound accolades continue to pile up for this disastrous pope, I cannot help but recall the words spoken by Our Lord in reference to those who labor in pursuit of the praise of men:
Truly, His Humbleness has received his reward.
Were he truly a Catholic, he would not accept the reward.
“Do not think that I came to send peace upon earth: I came not to send peace, but the sword.” Math 10:34.
Corrigendum: “reward” should read “award.”
On Vdare, the best site covering the third-world descent of the West, here’s their latest essay on Pope Francis:
Pope Francis, “Migrants,” and Christendom: His Preaching is not the Church’s Teaching http://www.vdare.com/articles/pope-francis-migrants-and-christendom-his-preaching-is-not-the-churchs-teaching
Put his name in the search box there for more.
I think I am moving past the phase where this man disgusts me and into the phase where I truly pity him and feel sorry for him. He is not young, and apparently not in the best of health, and his day of reckoning is likely fast approaching. I blast him daily, like we all do (heck I dont even acknowledge him as a true pope), but I fear for his soul. I do truly hope that he wakes up soon and comes back to the Church.
The biggest difference between Francis and Charlemagne is that Charlemagne was Catholic!
Now THAT’S funny!
Most of these people are all big government pan-european new world order pushers. Here’s an interesting bio from the 1961 winner:
” Walter Hallstein – a notorious Nazi lawyer who participated in Hitler’s delegation that negotiated the state treaties between the two fascist countries Italy and Germany. In 1939, Hallstein publicly supported the ‘Nuremberg Racial Laws’ and the ‘Blood and Honor’ Nazi philosophy. In 1957, he became the first and founding president of the European Commission. Over a period of ten years, with the help of thousands of paid bureaucrats – operating outside of any democratic control, from within the “Brussels EU” headquarters – he laid the crucial foundation stones from which the current-day undemocratic structure derives.”
One begins to wonder if Francis is auditioning for the job of Leader-In-Chief of the New World Order’s One World Religion-?
1977 winner Walter Scheel was Chairman of the Bilderberg Conference as well as President of the European Movement in Germany from 1980 to 1985. From 1980 to 1989 he was also President of the German section of the Union of European Federalists (UEF).
Nice company the Pope keeps isn’t it?
I pulled some quotes from wiki on the first winner of the Charlemage prize: Coudenhove-Kalergi is recognized as the founder of the first popular movement for a united Europe. His intellectual influences ranged from Rudolf Kjellén and Oswald Spengler to Arthur Schopenhauer and Friedrich Nietzsche. In politics, he was an enthusiastic supporter of “fourteen points” made by Woodrow Wilson on 8 January 1918 and pacifist initiatives of Kurt Hiller. Through the ritual in December 1921, he joined the Masonic lodge “Humanitas” in Vienna in 1922, where he would reach several degrees. European freemason’s lodges supported his movement.
According to his autobiography, at the beginning of 1924 he came through Baron Louis de Rothschild in contact with Max Warburg who offered to finance his movement for the next 3 years giving him 60,000 gold marks; Warburg eventually remained sincerely interested in the movement for his entire life and served as an intermediate man as to bring him in contact with influential personalities in America such as banker Paul Warburg and financier Bernard Baruch.
He wrote his masonic membership in Ein Leben für Europa (A Life for Europe) published in 1966 …
…the Masonic newspaper The Beacon enthused about the thoughts of the higher degree Freemason Coudenhove-Kalergi, and stated in March, 1925: “Freemasonry, especially Austrian Freemasonry, may be eminently satisfied to have Coudenhove-Kalergi among its members. Austrian Freemasonry can rightly report that Brother Coudenhove-Kalergi fights for his Pan European beliefs: political honesty, social insight, the struggle against lies, striving for the recognition and cooperation of all those of good will. In this higher sense, Brother Coudenhove-Kalergi’s program is a Masonic work of the highest order, and to be able to work on it together is a lofty task for all brother Masons.”
Honestly Pope Francis, is your stupid throttle stuck open?
I wonder of he even realizes the company he keeps. Is he simply a patsy for the elites or is he a participating member? Its obviously no good either way but I would love to know how deeply he is actually entrenched with the true rulers of the world.
And now this from the “Call me Jorge” blog :
Jesus the Christ had to beg for forgiveness of his parents for being in his Father’s house…
…according to Francis’ latest heresy!
“At the end of that pilgrimage, Jesus returned to Nazareth and was obedient to his parents (cf. Lk 2:51). This image also contains a beautiful teaching about our families. A pilgrimage does not end when we arrive at our destination, but when we return home and resume our everyday lives, putting into practice the spiritual fruits of our experience. We know what Jesus did on that occasion. Instead of returning home with his family, he stayed in Jerusalem, in the Temple, causing great distress to Mary and Joseph who were unable to find him. For this little “escapade”, Jesus probably had to beg forgiveness of his parents. The Gospel doesn’t say this, but I believe that we can presume it. Mary’s question, moreover, contains a certain reproach, revealing the concern and anguish which she and Joseph felt. Returning home, Jesus surely remained close to them, as a sign of his complete affection and obedience. Moments like these become part of the pilgrimage of each family; the Lord transforms the moments into opportunities to grow, to ask for and to receive forgiveness, to show love and obedience.”

His Reward is his own Self Edification. Need I say more?
Bergoglio is deeply cemented and rooted in worldly things. That is why his poor brain cannot think supernaturally. That is why he is a total failure as a pope. He is like a mathematician who hates the sight of numbers. He thinks of the Holy Family as just another family who roamed the face of the earth. The planet earth is Bergoglio’s home. We must take care of the earth. Thoughts of Heaven and the supernatural are for mystics—or maybe those crazy aka Catholics. It’s pretty sad, isn’t it??
My question is this:
Is Francis truly evil or just a misguided, bumbling man with a great big ol’ heart?
Coudenhove-Kalergi is sometimes described as a ‘dark character’, and for good reason. Through what is known as the Kalegri Plan, was ultimately responsible for white genocide, more specifically the genocide of the European peoples. Worked behind the scenes to lay the foundations for a one world government, and extolled Jewish supremacism.
