From Guayaquil, Ecuador’s largest shopping mall, Francis addressed a crowd of 600 thousand faithful, ahead of the upcoming Synod on the family and the Jubilee. Francis called on people to pray even harder in view of the upcoming Synod because “Christ can take even what might seem to us impure, scandalous or threatening and turn it … into a miracle. And the family needs this miracle.”
Francis left the cold temperatures of Quito which is 2800 metres above sea level and after a few hours descended to sea level, to an area known as Ecuador’s Miami. After the brief flight, the Pope took a silver-coloured Fiat Idea to go to the new sanctuary of Divine Mercy, where he was welcomed by a group of enthusiastic Argentinians and girls in traditional dress who threw flower petals.
Straight after this, Francis made his way to the venue where he was to celebrate mass. More than half a million faithful – Ecuadorians and other Latin Americans – gathered in Latin America’s third biggest park which stretches across 379 hectares and forms part of a state project called “Guayaquil ecologica”. Commenting on the Gospel passage on the wedding feast of Cana, which recounts the first miracle Jesus performed at Mary’s express wish – the transformation of water into wine – Francis recalled that Jesus “pour[s] out the best wines for those who, for whatever reason, feel that all their jars have been broken”. With these words, Francis threw out a metaphorical raft to all those facing tough family situations.
Francis’ message on the family was powerful and will resonate beyond Ecuador and South America. Reflecting on the miracle at the wedding feast of Cana, Pope Francis recalled that “in the family, miracles are performed with what little we have, with what we are, with what is at hand… many times, it is not ideal, it is not what we dreamt of, nor what “should have been”. The new wine of the wedding feast of Cana came from the water jars, the jars used for ablutions, we might even say from the place where everyone had left their sins.” “Where sin increased, grace abounded all the more”, Francis said quoting St. Paul’s Letter to the Romans. In our own families and in the greater family to which we all belong, nothing is thrown away, nothing is useless.
Francis asked faithful to pray that the upcoming Synod will consider concrete solutions to the many difficult and significant challenges facing families in our time”. “God,” who can transform even the things that scandalise or scare us into miracles, “always seeks out the peripheries, those who have run out of wine, those who drink only of discouragement”.
At the end he said: “The best wine is yet to come for those who today feel hopelessly lost. Whisper it to yourselves until you are convinced of it: the best wine is yet to come. Whisper it to the hopeless and the loveless,” Francis concluded. “In a continent where there are a huge number of families formed by unmarried couples, the Pope advocates hope for the future of the family: “the best wine is yet to come and it will come even if all variables and statistics point to the opposite.” [!!!]
Here, the “wine” and the so called “miracle” represents the false mercy: Bergoglio twists Scripture to condone the remarried divorcees, the unmarried couples… to condone sin!
He asked to pray for the Synod to find solutions for the difficult challenges facing families! There is only one solution: the Teachings of The Lord as they are since 2000 years. There is only one marriage, everything else is adultery. Remarried divorcees are living in mortal sin! Repentance, conversion and turning away of living in sin is the only way in which one can experience the Mercy of the Lord.
Remember the prophecy of Our Lord on February 25th 2013:
Seated in the Chair of Peter, this imposter (the False Prophet)will shout aloud and proudly proclaim his solution to unite all churches as one. Hailed as a modern innovator, he will be applauded by the secular world because he will condone sin. He will bring in new laws, which will, not only contradict the Teachings of the Catholic Church, but which will go against all Christian laws. The priests who oppose these Messages will be forced to reconsider them when the awful truth is revealed. The Truth of My Word, given to you, My daughter, will slowly dawn on them at last. How they will weep in sorrow when they realise that it is I, Jesus Christ, Who – with the Blessing of My Father – reveals to you the end time prophecies in every detail.
