More than once Francis has said, "The Communists are the true Christians."

"Saint" Angelelli?

Saint Angelelli?
There was Helder Camara, now there is Bishop Angelelli, a political activist who engaged in the Marxist politics of defending the people instead of defending the Gospel. He worked closely with other socialist-formed bishops from Latin America, including Manuel Larrain (Chile), Helder Camara (Brazil), Ramon Bogarin (Paraguay), Marcos McGrath (Panama) and Leonidas Proaño (Ecuador), known for his promotion of Marxist “Liberation Theology.”


On June 9, Pope Francis promulgated a decree recognizing Angelelli’s martyrdom and thereby cleared the way for his beatification. The problem is that he was not a true martyr, since his witness was for Marxism, not for Catholicism.

Such was the case with Helder Camara, an avowed Marxist and former Nazi, and also Fr. Luis Espinal who was killed by government police for waging his fight against the government in Bolivia. It was Espinal who invented the infamous “sickle and hammer crucifix,” a replica of which was given to Pope Francis in 2015 by Bolivian president Evo Morales, another flaming Communist praised by Francis who is committed to bringing down the government and the Catholic Church.

Bishop Angelelli may have meant well in his defense of human rights, but was not a true man of the people since he was aiding their political fight against the government and not their sanctification. As he himself famously said,
“With one ear I listen to the Gospel and with the other I listen to the people.” By his own words may he be judged, not beatified, for he showed himself at best to half-baked and no saint.

More than once Francis has said, “The Communists are the true Christians.” And so here again we see Francis attempting to raise a communist-sympathizer to the altars of Holy Mother the Church. Shall he also beatify Lenin for ‘hearing the concerns of the people?’

Angelelli, first martyr of Vatican II

The late bishop of La Rioja will be the first of many martyrs of Argentina’s Dirty War whose sacrifices also await recognition

Concluding a 40-year personal journey, Pope Francis promulgated a decree on June 9 recognizing the martyrdom in 1976 of Bishop Enrique Angelelli Carletti and three of his co-workers, the French Fidei Donum priest, Gabriel Longueville, the Franciscan Father Carlos de Dios Murias and the lay pastoral worker Wenceslao Pedernera

.All four were killed by assassins linked to the military during the “Dirty War” that ripped Argentina apart during the late 1970s.
