“Let us look on high,” he said, where Mary awaits. “She loves us, she smiles at us and she comes to our aid with haste.”
Just when I think that Pope Francis cannot possible double-down any further on his blasphemous worship of Mary, he goes and show me just how serious he is about idol worship. During the Roman Catholic Feast of the Assumption on Thursday, he confidently declared that the door, or the gate, to getting into Heaven is not Jesus Christ, but Mary.
“Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” John 10:7-10 (KJV)
For all you Roman Catholics out there, read the scripture from John 10 that you see above, that tells you who the gate to Heaven is. You will not find one verse in the entire Bible that tells you that Mary is the pathway to anything. You will also not find a single verse in the Bible that says Mary was “assumed up into Heaven” either, why? Because she did no such thing. I can guarantee you that if you are trusting in Mary to get you to Heaven, you will wind up in Hell instead.
“And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord, And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.” Luke 1:46,47 (KJV)
Mary has no such power to lead anyone to Heaven or to save a single soul. She hears no prayers and gives no comfort or direction. She was a human being just like you, trusting in her is idol worship. Read your Catholic history and you will find that the ‘infallible doctrine’ of worshipping Mary was created by Pope Pius IX on December 8, 1854. Only Jesus Christ can save you, because only He paid for your sins. And guess what? He paid for Mary’s sins as well. She need a Saviour just like everyone else, just like she said in Luke 1. Why don’t you believe her?
Pope at Angelus on feast of the Assumption: Mary is the “Gate of Heaven”
FROM CRUXNOW: Mary’s assumption into heaven calls people to put aside all those insignificant, mundane and petty concerns competing for their attention and instead be drawn to God and his greatness, Pope Francis said.
After reciting the Angelus prayer on the feast of the Assumption Aug. 15, Francis also blessed thousands of rosaries that will be given to Catholics in Syria “as a sign of my closeness, especially for families who have lost someone because of the war.”
“Mary, who is a human creature, one of us, reaches eternity in body and soul”, said Pope Francis. This is why we invoke her as the “Gate of Heaven”. “There she awaits us, just as a mother waits for her children to come home”. The Pope said we are like pilgrims on our way home to Heaven. Seeing that “in paradise, together with Christ, the New Adam, there is also her, Mary, the new Eve, gives us comfort and hope in our pilgrimage down here”. source
“Prayers made with faith are powerful. Let us keep praying for peace in the Middle East and the whole world,” said the pope, who explained that Aid to the Church in Need spearheaded the initiative to send some 6,000 rosaries to Catholic communities in Syria.
With the assumption of Mary, body and soul, into heaven, she is “like a mother who waits for her children to come back home.” Knowing that she is there with God in heaven “gives us comfort and hope during our pilgrimage” on earth, he said.
The feast of the Assumption of Mary is an invitation to everyone, “especially for those who are afflicted by doubt and sadness, and live gazing downward,” he said.
“Let us look on high,” he said, where Mary awaits. “She loves us, she smiles at us and she comes to our aid with haste.” READ MORE
