Bishop Schneider calls faithful to pray for Pope Francis to ‘convert’


… Those who advocate same-sex civil unions are therefore also culpable of creating a kind of structure of sin

… Such support of the pope means support for a structure of sin

… “men who practice homosexuality will not inherit the kingdom of God” (1 Cor. 6:9)

… “The Holy Spirit was not promised to the successors of Peter that by His revelation they might make known new doctrine” (Dogmatic Constitution Pastor aeternus, chap. 4)

… the same behavior as a relationship in society, foreseen and approved by the law, to the point where it becomes one of the institutions in the legal structure

… not only externally shape the life of society, but also tend to modify the younger generation’s perception and evaluation of forms of behavior

… Pope Francis may convert and retract formally his approval for the civil same-sex unions

… “The Church teaches that respect for homosexual persons cannot lead in any way to approval of homosexual behavior or to legal recognition of homosexual unions.” (Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, n. 11)

… remembering the luminous and crystal-clear teaching of the popes, of our Holy Mother Church

… the gates of hell will not prevail against His Church

… will say also to Pope Francis: “For what does it profit a man, if he gains the whole world, and suffers the loss of his own soul?

… to Pope Francis: “I have prayed that your own faith may not fail; and that once you have converted, you must strengthen your brothers” (Luke 22:32)
