Pope Francis has published his long-awaited text on the Amazon region following a hotly contested synod of bishops in the Vatican last fall.
Pope Francis has just issued his official papal ruling on the future of the Roman Catholic Church in the Amazon, Querida Amazonia, and it is a wonderful mixture of Catholicism, paganism, Gaia, poetry and, in last place of course, the gospel. Not that Pope Francis or any pope has ever preached the gospel of the grace of God, but I digress.
“And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:” Revelation 9:20 (KJB)
We showed you back in 2019 how Pope Francis blessed a female shaman from the Amazon at the Vatican, in a ‘worship service’ dedicated to Mother Earth goddess Pachamama. We also showed you how the pope is incorporating Gaia in to the Catholicism of the Amazon church. Just take a look at the video at the bottom of this article, and watch Pope Francis give his worthless ‘papal blessing’ to the pagan goddess of the Amazon, Pachamama. So the final release of his final verdict of how things will operate in the Amazon surprises none of us here at NTEB.
Naturally, the preaching of the gospel is set dead last on the pope’s checklist, included there only as filler to his conservative Catholic critics who think of him as the Antichrist. Interestingly, the pope said that “only poetry will be able to save this world.” Ahh, there’s the God-rejecting, pagan confirming, One World Religion of Chrislam creator Pope Francis I know.
Pope Francis Sets out His ‘Dreams’ for the Amazon Region
FROM BREITBART NEWS: In his letter, titled Querida Amazonia (Dear Amazonia), the pope backed away from contentious issues such as the ordination of married men and opted instead for a more conciliatory document, intended to focus on topics that would draw broader consensus.
In this lyrical text, interspersed with lines of indigenous poetry and rhetorical flourish, Francis appeals to “those poets, contemplatives and prophets who help free us from the technocratic and consumerist paradigm that destroys nature and robs us of a truly dignified existence.”
“Only poetry,” he cites, “with its humble voice, will be able to save this world.”
Like Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “Letter from a Birmingham Jail,” Pope Francis structures his text around his four “dreams” for the region, which he calls a social dream, a cultural dream, an ecological dream, and an ecclesial dream.
“I dream of an Amazon region that fights for the rights of the poor, the original peoples and the least of our brothers and sisters, where their voices can be heard and their dignity advanced,” he writes, as a synopsis of his “social dream.”
In his focus on the poverty of the region, the pope steps away from those who seek an environmental approach that leaves the true good of the people behind.“A true ecological approach always becomes a social approach; it must integrate questions of justice in debates on the environment, so as to hear both the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor,” he states. “We do not need an environmentalism that is concerned for the biome but ignores the Amazonian peoples.”
“I dream of an Amazon region that can preserve its distinctive cultural riches, where the beauty of our humanity shines forth in so many varied ways,” he continues.
Francis’ cultural dream consists in “helping it to bring out the best of itself,” noting that this is in fact “what education is meant to do: to cultivate without uprooting, to foster growth without weakening identity, to be supportive without being invasive.”
Third, Francis declares his dream “of an Amazon region that can jealously preserve its overwhelming natural beauty and the superabundant life teeming in its rivers and forests.” “The Lord, who is the first to care for us, teaches us to care for our brothers and sisters and the environment which he daily gives us. This is the first ecology that that we need,” he states.
While much of the text is a paean to the indigenous peoples of the region and their ancient relationship with the created world, the pope dedicates the final section to speak of Jesus Christ and the salvation of souls.
“I dream of Christian communities capable of generous commitment, incarnate in the Amazon region, and giving the Church new faces with Amazonian features,” he writes.
As Christians, he says, “we cannot set aside the call to faith that we have received from the Gospel. In our desire to struggle side by side with everyone, we are not ashamed of Jesus Christ. Those who have encountered him, those who live as his friends and identify with his message, must inevitably speak of him and bring to others his offer of new life: ‘Woe to me if I do not preach the Gospel!’” READ MORE
