The Splendor of Truth
FOR IN THOSE DAYS JESUS CHRIST WILL SEND THEM NOT A TRUE PASTOR, BUT A DESTROYER. A MAN, NOT CANONICALLY ELECTED, WILL ENDEAVOR TO DRAW MANY INTO ERROR AND DEATH. – St. Francis Of Assisi, Works of the Seraphic Father St. Francis Of Assisi , pp. 248-250
“Act bravely, my Brethren; take courage, and trust in the Lord. The time is fast approaching in which there will be great trials and afflictions; perplexities and dissensions, both spiritual and temporal, will abound; the charity of many will grow cold, and the malice of the wicked will increase. The devils will have unusual power, the immaculate purity of our Order, and of others, will be so much obscured that there will be very few Christians who will obey the true Sovereign Pontiff and the Roman Church with loyal hearts and perfect charity. At the time of this tribulation a man, not canonically elected, will be raised to the Pontificate, who, by his cunning, will endeavour to draw many into error and death. Then scandals will be multiplied, our Order will be divided, and many others will be entirely destroyed, because they will consent to error instead of opposing it.
There will be such diversity of opinions and schisms among the people, the religious and the clergy, that, except those days were shortened, according to the words of the Gospel, even the elect would be led into error, were they not specially guided, amid such great confusion, by the immense mercy of God.
Then our Rule and manner of life will be violently opposed by some, and terrible trials will come upon us. Those who are found faithful will receive the crown of life; but woe to those who, trusting solely in their Order, shall fall into tepidity, for they will not be able to support the temptations permitted for the proving of the elect.
Those who preserve their fervour and adhere to virtue with love and zeal for the truth, will suffer injuries and, persecutions as rebels and schismatics; for their persecutors, urged on by the evil spirits, will say they are rendering a great service to God by destroying such pestilent men from the face of the earth. But the Lord will be the refuge of the afflicted, and will save all who trust in Him. And in order to be like their Head [Jesus Christ], these, the elect, will act with confidence, and by their death will purchase for themselves eternal life; choosing to obey God rather than man, they will fear nothing, and they will prefer to perish [physically] rather than consent to falsehood and perfidy.
Some preachers will keep silence about the truth, and others will trample it under foot and deny it. Sanctity of life will be held in derision even by those who outwardly profess it, for in those days Jesus Christ will send them not a true Pastor, but a destroyer.” – Works of the Seraphic Father St. Francis Of Assisi [London: R. Washbourne, 1882], Part V, Chapter XIII – The Saint Prophesies great Schisms and Tribulations in the Church, pp. 248-250 https://archive.org/details/worksseraphicfa00frangoog/page/n268/mode/2up

“I attended an FSSP Mass on Trinity Sunday celebrated here in Pennsylvania.
The celebrant admonished those Traditionalists who held to the belief that Muslims and Jews do not worship the same God as Catholics…and then launched into a sermon about how we worship the same God sourcing Trent and the Catechism of Pius X to support his position.”
This didn’t get included above. My mistake …
And my question to jamarrenjr is – I find this allegation troubling, given that Indifferentism is a terrible heresy. And I didn’t want the question to be lost in the comment streams. I am requesting that if jmarrenjr remembers, what was the source material within this FSSP sermon, that used Trent and St. Pius X’s Catechism to prove Christian, Muslim and Jewish gods are all the same.
I will provide you with the citations to the source documentation…and post as a reply. Give me a few days to follow up.
In case Mark closes this comments section I’ll post it as a reply to one of Mark’s most recent posts and ask him to publish it citing this exchange.

Ann Barnhardt had a similar experience with Archbishop Chaput during his “Colorado Bishopric” when she attended one of his Sunday evening Masses.
I guess that’s no different than saying ancient Egyptians knew all about organic chemistry because they also mixed stuff together.
Just thinking the other day: Bergo is a priest aka “father” and goes by Pope (sic) Francis. Also likes soccer, which many teams include AC (AC Milan, Monaco AC). Put it together and you have Father Pope Francis AC (FPFAC) or, False Prophet Forerunner of the Anti Christ. QED.
