By Accepting Communist-Chosen Bishops, Pope Francis Betrays Chinese Christians

On this particular Ash Wednesday, millions of Catholic faithful in mainland China have an extra reason to pray for God’s mercy: their earthly leader, Pope Francis, has betrayed them.

February 14, 2018 is a rare occasion when Valentine’s Day, a day of love, falls on the same day as Ash Wednesday. The ashes not only symbolize the dust from which God made us, but also grief that we have sinned and caused division from God.

  2. What else would one expect from a heretical Communist faggot? After all, the Chicoms are his kith and kin. But then this is why the Purple Mafia installed him in the first place.
