POPE FRANCIS NEVER DENY THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION AND AS WELL DID NOT SAY THAT THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY IS “NOT A SAINT FROM THE BEGINNING” – A RESPONSE TO THE SEDEVACANTISTS AND OTHER ANTI-VATICAN 2 GROUPS

Accusations:

“Francis denies Immaculate Conception, says Virgin Mary Not a Saint from the Beginning.

The fact that Francis suggests that it wasn’t until after some kind of interior struggle that Holy Mary and St. Joseph (finally) “accepted this gift of God”, is troubling and blasphemous enough. This alone would probably suffice to accuse him of heresy. But he goes much further. He explicitly says that it was not easy for them to be joyful at the Birth of Christ because this required holiness that they had not received from birth but had to acquire over time! In other words, Jorge Bergoglio has a pattern of insulting Mary Most Holy.”

ANSWER:

SUCH ACCUSATIONS ABOVE ARE NOT TRUE. BELOW ARE THE FOLLOWING REASONS:

1. YOU CANNOT FIND ANY OF POPE FRANCIS’ STATEMENTS BOTH PRIOR AND THE LATESTS SAYING THAT “THE IMACULATE CONCEPTION IS NOT TRUE NOR THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY IS NOT A SAINT FROM THE BEGINNING”. SUCH ACCUSATIONS ARE ONLY BASED ON THEIR WRONG PERCEPTION OF THE POPE’S STATEMENTS.

2. YOU CANNOT FIND ANY DECREE RELEASED BY POPE FRANCIS AFFIX WITH HIS SIGNATURE THAT “NEGATES THE DOGMA ON THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION AND PROCLAIMED THAT THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY IS NOT A SAINT FROM THE BEGINNING AS WELL NOT IN FULL OF GRACE”. FOR SURE THEY CANNOT PROVE IT SINCE THEIR ACCUSATIONS ARE NOT RELIABLE AND AS WELL SUBJECTIVE (OWN INTERPRETATION), NOT OBJECTIVELY.

3. SUCH ACCUSATIONS MENTIONED CANNOT BE USED AGAINST POPE FRANCIS BECAUSE WE MUST REMEMBER THAT HIS SPEECH LAST DECEMBER 21, 2018 REALLY FOCUSED ON THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS LIKE CHARITY, STRIVING IN ORDER TO BE SAINTS, LOVE ONE ANOTHER, ETC. AND NOT ON THE DOGMATIC CONSTITUTION OF THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION AS WELL FOR BEING FULL OF GRACE (OF COURSE THE POPE DID NOT REJECT THE DOGMA ON IMMACULATE CONCEPTION AND RECOGNIZED THAT THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY IS FULL OF GRACE). IN OTHER WORDS, THEY ARE ACCUSING THE POPE OF “HERESIES” WHICH ARE NOT SUITABLE WITH THE SUBJECT MATTER SINCE AS WHAT BEING SAID THAT THEY ACCUSED THE POPE FOR “DENYING THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION AND TELLING THAT MARY IS NOT FULL OF GRACE”, WHEREAS HIS SPEECH FOCUSED ON THE ESSENCE ON THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS WHICH GIVES JOY TO THE PEOPLE. THEREFORE, THE ACCUSERS ARE OUT OF TOPIC ON THE DISCUSSION.

4. POPE FRANCIS SAID THAT “let us not think it was easy for them (Mary and Joseph): saints are not born, they become thus, and this is true for them too” BECAUSE HE WANTS TO EMPHASIZE THAT DURING THE NATIVITY SCENE, MARY AND JOSEPH WERE JOYFUL WHEN THE HOLY CHILD JESUS WAS BORN AFTER ALL THE STRUGGLES THEY EXPERIENCED. ALSO, HE MEANT TO EXPLAIN TO US THAT IN MARY AND JOSEPH’S OWN UNDERSTANDING, IT WAS TRUE FOR THEM THAT SAINTS ARE NOT BORN AND THEY BECOME THUS, BUT IT DOESN’T MEAN THAT IT CONTRADICTS AND NEGATES THE DOGMA ON THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION AND FOR BEING FULL OF GRACE. SO, THE ACCUSERS DID NOT COMPREHEND PROPERLY THE WORDS OF POPE FRANCIS.
