Priest who Promotes LGBT Rights has Meeting with Pope

The Pope has met with Father James Martin in an hour long meeting, in his private library. This is where the Pope meets with heads of state and important dignitaries.  Fr Martin has been a vocal supporter of LGBT rights, and has received public support from the Pope.

However, bishops are calling on the Pope to outline his position on this issue. And affirm the position of the church, which states the same-sex relationships are “gravely sinful and harmful to the well-being of those who partake in them,”

“Father Martin’s public messages create confusion among the faithful and disrupt the unity of the Church by promoting a false sense that immoral sexual behavior is acceptable under God’s law,” wrote Bishop Thomas John Paprocki of Springfield, Illinois, in a statement on the diocesan website.

Although the Pope has not issued a public statement, many see his meeting with Fr Martin as a message in itself. Especially as the Pope has failed to chastise the priest for his message of LGBT “affirmation”.

Yesterday saw Pope Benedict XVI formally step down. Now the Cardinals will begin the process, which has been carried out many times over the centuries to select the next Pope. However, an ancient papal prophecy suggests that the next Pope could be the last Pope.

St Malachy was a 12th century Irish Archbishop. He prophesied that there would be 112 more Popes, before Judgement Day. In his prophecy he gave a short cryptic verse about each Pope. Many of these verses have come to pass with startling accuracy. Pope Benedict XVI would be Pope 111 in the prophecy. Making the next Pope 112.

The prophecy for this final Pope is:

In the extreme persecution of the Holy Roman Church, there will sit … Peter the Roman, who will pasture his sheep in many tribulations: and when these things are finished, the city of seven hills will be destroyed, and the terrible judge will judge his people. The End.



Hours after the 85 year old Pontiff announced his intension to resign at the end of the month, a bolt of lightening struck the basilica of St Peter, at the heart of the Vatican. The strange event made many ask if this was some kind of “sign from God”.

Roman Catholic’s have been shocked by the surprise announcement by Pope Benedict XVI, who said he no longer has the strength to carry out his duties, due to his advanced years.

He is the first Pope to resign since Gregory XII in 1415. In total only four or five Pope’s have stepped down from the position, most were forced out by political rivals. Pope Benedict will be the first to resign on health grounds.

Pope Benedict has announced he will be resigning at the end of the month. The 85 year old pontiff told cardinals of his resignation, citing a lack of strength due to his age.

“After having repeatedly examined my conscience before God, I have come to the certainty that my strengths due to an advanced age are no longer suited to an adequate exercise of the Petrine ministry,” he told the cardinals. “I am well aware that this ministry, due to its essential spiritual nature, must be carried out not only by words and deeds but no less with prayer and suffering.”

Pope Benedict will be the first Pope in 600 years to resign from the post, with only four of five popes resigning in the churches history.

Cardinal Peter Turkson of Ghana and Cardinal Francis Arinze of Nigeria are early possible successors for the position. With others suggesting a cardinal from Latin America may be Pope Benedict’s successor.

San Francisco Archbishop Niederauer retires; Bishop Cordileone to succeed him

On Friday, Salvatore Cordileone became the new archbishop in San Francisco.

Pope Benedict over-rode the usual process of appointment and hand picked Cordileone to the post for the San Francisco, San Mateo and Marin region.  Cordileone had been stationed across the bay from San Francisco in Oakland, California.

Cordileone has been known as a leader in creating the campaign to pass Proposition 8 on a recent California ballot.  He made no qualms about his views Friday… “”We need to do whatever we can to strengthen marriage, understanding that it is a benefit for everyone in society.”

The current Archbishop, George Niederauer has been experiencing cardiac related issues and has undergone a double bypass heart operation recently.  He therefore will be stepping down in retirement.

History of Rome

Prophet TV is seeking to go to Rome. However, what makes Rome important?

Rome is the centre of the Catholic Church. In the centre of the city of Rome is Vatican City. The Vatican is an independent nation state and is home to the Pope. This is where all the major decisions are made as to the direction of the Rome Catholic Church. Catholic’s believe the Pope to be God’s representative on earth, and follow his every word- what the Pope says and does influences 1.1 Billion people world wide. Therefore the ruling spirit over the Vatican is very important. Although Catholics believe in Jesus, there is a powerful dragon over the Catholic Church, which controls the people through religion. As God has taught through Prophet TV, you go for the source, when dealing with the demonic- and in the case of the Catholic church that is Rome.

The Vatican city was built on the location believed to be where the apostle Peter was crucified. It was also the location of Emperor Nero’s circus. Nero was basically mad! He burnt Rome, to give himself an excuse to persecute the church, his persecution was the first major state organised persecution of the church. His circus was where many Christians died and were thrown to the lions.

In the centre of the Vatican is St. Peter’s Square- where the Pope gives all his grand sermons in front of mass crowds. In the centre is a large Egyptian obelisk. This was originally built in the Egyptian city of Heliopolis, and was moved to Rome by the Emperor Caligula (12-41 AD).

One of the major issues facing the Catholic Church is celibacy laws. God has made us with sexual hormones and instituted marriage has the correct and righteous way for a man and a woman to enjoy intercourse. However, for Catholic Priests, and Nuns struggling to control these natural desires the enemy has been able to gain access to their lives and perversions have taken root within the Catholic church- the worst of these being the recent pedophile scandals. There is no real biblical reason not to allow marriage, so why are these celibacy laws in place? Up until the 12 century priests were allowed to marry. However, because of the medieval feudal system property, wealth and title were always passed father to son. So the Catholic church was losing vast sums of money, and land to the sons of its priests, and the sons were automatically made priests- regardless of education or “moral credentials”! Therefore the way they found to stop this was making celibacy laws! Basically it was all about the money!

Prophet TV has been teaching that when we open a door to the demonic, i.e through sin, that demon has access to us, and we need to be delivered. As with a man so with a city. So the centuries of undealt with sin in the Vatican City have allowed powerful principalities to gain access. Much blood has been spilled through the Vatican, as many of the Pope’s were ruthless, brutal murderers gaining power via corruption and killing their rivals- especially in the Middle Ages. Not hard to believe, since the Pope was the most powerful man in Europe. It is also apparent that the sexual scandals which have been exposed in recent years are no stranger the the Catholic church, past Popes would  entertain “boys”, engaged in homosexuality, and many frequented prostitutes. One Pope was said to have made the Vatican like a “whorehouse”.

Rome is a city that has global influence. The enemy knows this- he has targeted the Vatican for centuries. Only a Son of God has the authority to take down the dragon, and allow the Presence of God to come into a region to influence the thoughts of men.
