Vice President Mike Pence met Pope Francis in the Vatican at noon on Jan. 24, and the two spoke together in private for an hour, a surprisingly long time for an audience with someone who is not a head of state. It was their first meeting.
Vice President Mike Pence met with Pope Francis at the Vatican today that was distinguished by how long of a meeting it was, and the fact that the main part of the meeting was held in secret behind closed doors. The private meeting comes as a direct result of a meeting by US Ambassador To The Holy See, Callista Gingrich, where she expressed the desire of the United States to ‘fully support’ the Abrahamic Faiths Initiative, otherwise known as the One World Religion of Chrislam.
“And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.” Revelation 13:11,12 (KJB)
Since the real meeting was held in secret, and it will be a few days or weeks until that information gets leaked, I cannot say for certain that they discussed the Abrahamic Faiths Initiative, or Chrislam, but I can say this. The whole theme of the proceedings was based completely around what the Bible calls the false peace that Antichrist brings. You will note that the ‘angel of peace’ medallion Pope Francis gave to Mike Pence has the royal crest of the Vatican on the front, complete with the fish hat of the god Dagon at the top, and the sun god in the middle. You can see it in the photo at the top of this article. This fits in perfectly with the Abrahamic Faiths Initiative, and the false peace that will come from it.
Interestingly, Mike Pence says that he is an evangelical Christian who raised as a Catholic. I was raised Catholic and then got saved in 1991 and became a Christian. I can only surmise from the part of the meeting that was made public that Mike Pence views Roman Catholicism as a legitimate expression of Christianity, which it absolutely is not. Instead of presenting the pope with a ‘cross made from a tree at the vice president’s residence’, Mike Pence should have presented Pope Francis with the gospel of the grace of God. But then, if what you’re helping to create is the One World Religion of Chrislam, the gospel would seem a little out of place.
Mike Pence and Pope Francis meet in a surprisingly long first visit
FROM JESUIT AMERICA MAGAZINE: Pope Francis welcomed vice president Mike Pence, who was raised Catholic, and then led him into the private library where he receives heads of state and distinguished guests and where he received President Trump on May 24, 2017.
“I wanted to extend the warmest greetings on behalf of President Donald Trump who so enjoyed his visit here,” Mike Pence told Francis as they sat down.
Pope Francis then engaged in a private conversation with the vice president, with the aid of interpreters. The length of their conversation would suggest that they went into depth on some topics. When they finished their private conversation, Mr. Pence presented his wife, daughter-in-law and other members of his delegation to the pope. The two leaders then exchanged gifts.
Mike Pence gave the pope a wooden cross carved from a tree on the grounds of the vice president’s residence. Pope Francis gave him a medallion depicting “the angel of peace,” a copy of his message for the World Day of Peace 2020, as well as copies of some of his writings, including “The Joy of the Gospel” and “Laudato Si’.”
According to an Indy Star profile of Mr. Pence from 2016, he was born and raised a Catholic, and attending Mass and serving as an altar boy was an important part of his life. During college, he began attending a non-denominational church, where he met his future wife. He now describes himself as, “a Christian, a conservative and a Republican,” in that order, and has also called himself “a born-again, evangelical Catholic.”
The vice president came to the Vatican from Jerusalem where he had participated in the Fifth World Holocaust Forum at the Yad Vashem Memorial yesterday, Jan. 23, with presidents, prime ministers and royalty from over 40 countries. Given this fact, it would seem reasonable to presume that he and the pope spoke about this and perhaps also the situation in the Holy Land.
When he arrived at the Vatican just before noon with his wife and daughter-in-law, Mr. Pence was greeted by the regent of the papal household, Msgr. Leonardo Sapienza. The U.S ambassador to the Holy See, Callista Gingrich, and her husband Newt, the former U.S Speaker of the House, were also present in the Belvedere courtyard of Vatican to greet him.
Before the two leaders met, one Vatican official told America the meeting was a “courtesy” visit, as Mr. Pence was also visiting Italy and was scheduled to meet with the country’s president, Sergio Mattarella, who also attended the Holocaust Forum, and Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte. But given the length of the meeting it could have been much more. The Vatican did not issue a press statement, since the vice president is not a head of state. READ MORE
