Fratelli Tutti


The encyclical Fratelli Tutti has drawn considerable support from among others freemasons and Communists. Church leaders in the main have thrown their support behind it. Yet it is littered with errors. In the opening paragraph reference is made to St Francis and his journey to Egypt to meet Sultan Malik-el-Kamil. History records that St Francis went to convert the Sultan as any true follower of Christ would do.


Paragraph 4 states


Francis did not wage a war of words aimed at imposing doctrines; he simply spread the love of God. He understood that “God is love and those who abide in love abide in God” (1 Jn 4:16). In this way, he became a father to all and inspired the vision of a fraternal society. Indeed, “only the man who approaches others, not to draw them into his own life, but to help them become ever more fully themselves, can truly be called a father”.[4] In the world of that time, bristling with watchtowers and defensive walls, cities were a theatre of brutal wars between powerful families, even as poverty was spreading through the countryside. Yet there Francis was able to welcome true peace into his heart and free himself of the desire to wield power over others. He became one of the poor and sought to live in harmony with all. Francis has inspired these pages.


Paragraph 4 is based on a false premise and sets the scene for the rest of the document.


Francis, devoted his life to Jesus and preached His Holy Word. In 1224 Francis reportedly received a vision that left him with the stigmata of Christ — marks resembling the wounds Jesus Christ suffered when he was crucified, through his hands and the gaping lance wound in his side. This made Francis the first person to receive the holy wounds of the stigmata. They would remain visible for the rest of his life. Because of his earlier work treating lepers, some believe that the wounds were actually symptoms of leprosy.


Francis did achieve true peace but from his acceptance of Jesus into his life. He preached faithfully the word of God.


In 'Fratelli Tutti' God the Father is never mentioned Jesus is mentioned twice in a 43,000 word document.


36 Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever disobeys the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God remains upon him. John 3

The Word of God


Luke 11:29-32 - As Jonah became a sign to the Ninevites, so will the Son of Man be a sign.


The crowds got even bigger, and Jesus addressed them:

  ‘This is a wicked generation; it is asking for a sign. The only sign it will be given is the sign of Jonah. For just as Jonah became a sign to the Ninevites, so will the Son of Man be to this generation. On Judgement day the Queen of the South will rise up with the men of this generation and condemn them, because she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and there is something greater than Solomon here. On Judgement day the men of Nineveh will stand up with this generation and condemn it, because when Jonah preached they repented; and there is something greater than Jonah here.’


MORNING PRAYER

You chose Israel and then your Church, Lord God,

to be Your special people.

Help the Church to remember You at this time

so that all men may be marked with the seal of Christ,

the eternal Shepherd.

Amen

“Suffering is the greatest treasure on earth; it purifies the soul. In suffering, we learn who our true friend is.”


Diary of Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska:



The Word of The Lord - From the Letters


Galatians 4:22-24,26-27,31-5:1 - Christ freed us: do not submit again to slavery


The Law says, if you remember, that Abraham had two sons, one by the slave-girl, and one by his free-born wife. The child of the slave-girl was born in the ordinary way; the child of the free woman was born as the result of a promise. This can be regarded as an allegory: the women stand for the two covenants. The first who comes from Mount Sinai, and whose children are slaves, is Hagar. The Jerusalem above, however, is free and is our mother, since scripture says: Shout for joy, you barren women who bore no children! Break into shouts of joy and gladness, you who were never in labour. For there are more sons of the forsaken one than sons of the wedded wife. So, my brothers, we are the children, not of the slave-girl, but of the free-born wife.


  When Christ freed us, he meant us to remain free. Stand firm, therefore, and do not submit again to the yoke of slavery.

The Lord bless you and keep you.

May He show His face to you and have mercy.

May He turn His countenance to you and give you peace.

The Lord bless you!

Amen.


Always remember - Jesus loves you.


In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen
