By Their Friends You Shall Know Them....

If that old saying is true, then we know Pp. Francis, and what we know is not good at all.

Not in the least 'good', and less-and-less Catholic, assuming that Catholicism has to do with Right Order.

The most recent:

As announced recently, Cardinal Juan Luis Cipriani Thorne was retired as Archbishop of Lima and Primate of Peru by Pope Francis. At the same time Francis immediately appointed his new successor. ...

... For the new Archbishop of Lima and Primate of Peru, Pope Francis has appointed Carlos Castillo Mattasoglio, priest of the Archdiocese and professor of theology at the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru.
Two things are notable in the above.  First, the Pope whacked Cdl. Cipriani the very day he hit 75, and appointed Mattasoglio at the same time.  This is unusual--so, obviously, it was The Plan.

"Well," you say, "is there any other reason that you say 'it is the plan'"?

Yes, yes, indeed!!

He [Mattasoglio] is a priest who rebelled against the bishop during the 20 years of Cipriani in Lima. He never participated in retreats or priestly meetings with the Cardinal. He never participated in liturgical ceremonies with the Cardinal, such as Corpus Christi, Chrism Mass, etc.  [And worse:] "...Carlos Castillo Mattasoglio was close to the Maoist Partido Comunista del Perú - of Sendero Luminoso de José Carlos Mariátegui (Communist Party of Peru - on the Shining Path). The "Shining Path" terrorist attacks from 1980 to the arrest of their leader Abimael Guzman in 1992, cost at least 70,000 Peruvians lives.
It is one thing to denounce eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeevil capitalists and work for human rights and prosperity of the lowest rungs of society.  It is another thing entirely to 'be close with' Marxist terrorist killers.

Francis seems to have an affinity for the Communists; see his gross mis-steps in Cuba and now in Venezuela, not to mention the horrific example of Communist China.

Just a reminder:  Communists are by definition atheistsThey may lie about it, but it doesn't change the reality.

And then there are all those same-sex-attracted predators who apparently get along just fine with The Francis.

Yah, well.  Pray harder.
