Christian News: ROME —  Roman Catholic leader Jorge Bergoglio, also known as “Pope Francis,” has decreed that a new feast day be added to the liturgical calendar to honor Mary, called “Mother of the Church.” The announcement has been deemed unbiblical as the Catholic Church continues to place inordinate emphasis on Mary.

The Vatican announced the decree on Saturday, noting that the new Roman Catholic holiday will be observed every year on the Monday after Pentecost. This year, the occasion will fall on May 21.

“Indeed, the mother standing beneath the cross (Jn. 19:25), accepted her Son’s testament of love and welcomed all people in the person of the beloved disciple as sons and daughters to be reborn unto life eternal. She thus became the tender mother of the Church which Christ begot on the cross handing on the Spirit,” the decree asserts. “Christ, in turn, in the beloved disciple, chose all disciples as ministers of his love towards His mother, entrusting her to them so that they might welcome her with filial affection.” more …

“The reason this works is because there is no outright denial of Christ. Rather, this just slowly pushes Him to the side, like filling up an elevator. Given enough time and enough of these “decrees”, one will not be able to tell the difference who is the true object of worship. Should be pretty easy to shift gears when the real church is gone.”

From the article: Mike Gendron (proclaimingthegospel.org):

“The Catholic Church has elevated Mary, a self-described servant of the Lord, to an omniscient goddess with divine attributes (Luke 1:38). She is said to be all-knowing, all seeing, and all powerful,” he explained. “Mary becomes a counterfeit savior: born sinless, without the stain of original sin, and living a sinless life. She becomes co-redeemer, provider of salvation, dispenser of forgiveness, and source of all grace. She is called the all-holy one, clearly a title belonging only to God.”

“This blasphemy stands in sharp contrast to what Scripture actually says and does not say about Mary,” Gendron continued. “When Jesus said, ‘I will build My Church,’ he never said Mary would be the mother of His Church. The one true Church has only one Head, one Shepherd and one Builder: the Lord Jesus Christ. The true Church is the body of Christ, the bride; the flock of Christ and the household of faith. Scripture never speaks of Mary having a leadership role or as a mother over the church.”

  1. Sorry, I made it about halfway through this article before I started feeling sick to my stomach. However, I must mention a few things.

    1) The Pope (regardless of which one it is) is meaningless
    2) The “Liturgical Calendar” is meaningless
    3) The Vatican is meaningless

    I have spoken to many Catholics and they all dishonestly claim that the Catholic Church does not honor Mary. Maybe they are out of touch with the rules and beliefs of the cult of which they are members. Because this is just ANOTHER way of the Catholics worshiping Mary.

    It amazes me that over a billion people in this world who claim to be Bible believing Christians would rather continue to proudly follow a purely evil man who wears a white dress and claims that EVERYONE is going to Heaven, instead of actually studying the Bible to find out that their beliefs are wrong.

  2. More heretical nonsense from a biblically illiterate shaman. Salvation and a Christian walk are individual acts of faith not church-wide corporate actions. Yet most pew seating “Christians” are lazy and don’t mind having some high ranking church Pharisee telling them what to believe and what to do. That’s why there are over a billion people in his “flock.”

  3. It’s not only a white dress, but a funny pointy hat, as well. This article and the comments made me realize why people follow this cult. They want to do what they want to do here and now. They don’t want any rules or have to answer to anyone. But they also want to go to heaven. So, if they can grab on to someone else’s coat tails (or white dress) and slide in under the gate that way, why not? Easy-peasy. “…for wide is the gate and broad is the way…” Unfortunately for many, it will take The Tribulation to wake them up. Even so…
