I didn't know where too put this! IS POPE FRANCIS PREPARING TO DECLARE THE ‘VIRGIN’ MARY TO BE 4TH PART OF THE TRINITY?

IS POPE FRANCIS PREPARING TO DECLARE THE ‘VIRGIN’ MARY TO BE 4TH PART OF THE TRINITY?
It obviously wouldn’t be the trinity anymore because of tri=3 but if this is true Catholicism is wrong… I’m so confused!

You have absolutely nothing to worry about. Everything Pope Francis said is orthodox. The authors’ understanding of Marian theology in particular is grossly lacking, and they are blinded by their prejudice towards the Catholic Church.

If you wish to clarify any particular point, I am sure that there are a lot of people on this forum with more knowledge than myself, who would be happy to help.

In the meantime, here is an excellent book that explains many of the finer points of Marian theology: ecatholic2000.com/lagrange/saviour/mother.shtml (It is available online and was written by an excellent priest and theologian)

St. Alphonsus also answers some of the aforementioned authors’ objections, in his book ‘The Glories of Mary.’ For example, he explains why Mary is “our hope”, and in what sense these words are to be understood.

Peace.

Your two links are the same article. One article links to the first article. The writer, who is never identified, claims to have been a Catholic.
How to know if someone is telling the truth

  1. He is in a position to know. Since we cannot identify the writer it fails
  2. He would tell you the truth. Considering what he writes is a lie this fails
  3. You can verify it.

All that he writes can be verified as untruthful. He fails all three. We can conclude he is not telling the truth.

People just want to jump to the worst conclusions about the Holy Father… :shrug:

I don’t put any value on the linked anti-Catholic article. Further along it says: “the Roman Catholic Church doesn’t want you to read and interpret the bible for yourself.”

lololololololol

The chance of that happening is 0.

Thanks for the laugh.

Not to worry, Jacob!

You know, some people are well educated and they have a B.S. degree. Others are less well educated, but they too have a B.S. degree. It’s often quite high I might add. :smiley:

And besides, making ANYONE the 4th part of aTRINITY is a mathematic impossibility!

Troll alert…

this is definitely true and should be taken 100% seriously.

:rolleyes:

Yep. Anyone who takes those websites seriously - isn’t serious! :rolleyes:

Please tell us you don’t believe everything you read on the internet!

Great, a foursome, we can worship on the golf course.

Here’s a good prayer!

"Lord Jesus by faith in your merits, I now take your precious blood and sprinkle it over myself and my family.

Right from the crown of my head to the very soles of my feet.

I claim total and complete protection for my life and my family.

Lord Jesus keep me free today from evil, sin and temptation, Satan’s attacks and afflictions, fear of darkness, fear of man, sickness, diseases, doubts, anger, all calamities and from all that is not of thy kingdom.

Fill me Lord Jesus with the gift of your Holy Spirit and grant me the gifts of wisdom.

So that I will live today in your glory by doing that which is right.

I praise you, Jesus, I thank you, Jesus, I love you, Jesus. I adore you, Jesus.

Holy Spirit you who makes me see everything and shows me the way to reach my ideals.

You who gives me the divine gift to forgive and forget the wrong that is done to me.

And you who are in all instances of my life with me, I in this short dialogue I want to thank you for everything and affirm one more that I never want to be separated from you, no matter how great the material desire may be. I want to be with you and my loved ones in your perpetual Glory. (mention your request) Thank you Holy Spirit for your love towards me and to my loved ones. Amen.

This prayer should be said for 6 consecutive days. After the 3rd day the request will be granted, no matter how difficult it may be. While making the request, one must either :

  1. Promise to publish on granting of the favour.

  2. Promise to circulate copies of it to as many people as possible."

Jacob,
Mary is totally, 100% human, exactly as you are, not God in any sense of the word, at all. The honor given her is that she, with 100% of her being, gave herself over to God to do his will with no part of human selfishness or sin or fear.

NO, this not going to happen.

The ONLY thing that a Pope or the Church MIGHT do one day is Dogmatically define the last Marian Doctrine. Some people think Pope Francis might do it, but he may not.

Usually, Doctrine isn’t Dogmatically defined unless it’s being challenged. And right now, I’m not aware of any challenges against it, only people who want it defined.

You can buy a CD (or MP3) which talks about Marian Doctrine here. I highly recommend it: lighthousecatholicmedia.org/store/title/meet-your-mother-an-introduction-to-mary?promoCode=104130

God Bless.

What is there to define regarding the Blessed Virgin Mary that has not already been said?
I don’t understand what you are saying.

No, he is not.

If you are looking to be Catholic, do not look to anti-Catholic sites for information. They lack credibility.

yup. And thanks for placing the word “virgin” in quotes.
you’ve got to be kidding.
troll indeed.

Haha thank you for the great comments but yes this was a satirical post! I hope you all got a good laugh! :rotfl:
God Bless
