Betrayal of sound doctrine through “Amoris Laetitia”.

Like Pope Francis and some of his collaborators they are spreading a morality contrary to the deposit of faith.

The Lord Jesus said: "You will know the truth and the truth will set you free" (Jn 8:32). "Scripture commands us to do the truth in charity (cf. Eph 4:15). "[1] Precisely to make this truth I decided to write this book.
We find ourselves in somewhat strange and confusing times, as well as doctrinal perversion, in which the late card. Caffarra wrote to the Pope: “… a year has now passed since the publication of“ Amoris Laetitia ”. In this period, interpretations of some objectively ambiguous passages of the post-Synodal Exhortation have been publicly given, not diverging from, but contrary to, the permanent Magisterium of the Church. Although the Prefect of the Doctrine of the Faith has repeatedly declared that the doctrine of the Church has not changed, numerous declarations have appeared from individual Bishops, cardinals, and even Episcopal Conferences, which approve what the Magisterium of the Church has never approved. Not only the access to the Holy Eucharist of those who objectively and publicly live in a situation of grave sin, and intend to remain there, but also a conception of moral conscience contrary to the Tradition of the Church. And so it is happening - oh how painful it is to see it! - that what is sin in Poland is good in Germany, what is prohibited in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia is lawful in Malta. And so on. The bitter observation of B. Pascal comes to mind: “Justice on this side of the Pyrenees, injustice on the other side; justice on the left bank of the river, injustice on the right bank "".[2]

Card. Muller stated: "Unfortunately, there are individual bishops and entire episcopal conferences who propose interpretations that contradict the previous Magisteriumby admitting to the sacraments persons who persist in objective situations of grave sin. But this is not the criterion with which to apply Amoris Laetitia. "[3] ...

In this book of mine I answer, with a fairly extensive study, to various questions that many people ask themselves in these times and that arise from the situation that has arisen in particular in these years of Pope Francis' pontificate, questions that are generally concentrated on the work of Pope Francis and therefore on that of some of his collaborators; in the text I show how the Pope and some of his collaborators are betraying sound doctrine and spreading a morality contrary to the deposit of faith.

I specify and emphasize that the Pope and some of his collaborators are betraying sound doctrine and are not making it evolve, as someone says, and in the text I explain why it is a question of a change-betrayal of sound doctrine and not of its evolution.

To offer a truly exhaustive answer to the aforementioned questions, I first specify, in chapter I, what are the limits of the power of the Supreme Pontiff in doctrinal matters, I dwell on the question of the possible heresy of a Pope and show how in history clear errors of the Popes are remembered. and how even a Pope was declared a heretic and anathemized by an Ecumenical Council after his death. In this first chapter I examine in particular the statements of Msgr. VM Fernandez an Argentine prelate who is very close to Pope Francis and is considered the shadow author or ghostwriter of the exhortation "Amoris Laetitia", in the book several times I use the writings of Mons. Fernandez to try to better understand what "Amoris Laetitia ".

In chapter II I show the evident papal strategy that led to Amoris Laetitia and the serious consequences that followed it, a strategy also made up of ambiguous statements and a kind of "cipher" (made up of words and actions) through the which is "cleared through customs", with discretion, the change of doctrine and in particular the "change of paradigm" that he wants to implement. Pope Francis' closest collaborators themselves have affirmed that he is implementing a "paradigm shift". Cardinal Muller significantly affirmed that: "Behind the pseudo-intellectual discourse of the 'paradigm shift', there is only the unmasked heresy that falsifies the word of God"[4].

The aforementioned strategy, as is evident in my work, was also achieved through clever "manipulations" implemented on the two Synods of 2014 and 2015 precisely to draw from them the indications that the Pope wanted to be able to implement this change.

In the following chapters I show the realization of this "paradigm shift" and therefore the errors that emerge through Amoris Laetitia regarding various points of Catholic doctrine. We will see in such chapters how, to pass a false morality as theologically acceptable, Pope Francis and his supporters have exploited in particular 2 ways :

  1. that for which, with cunning, they practically put aside, in certain respects, the revealed divine law and with it the absolute obligatory nature of the negative precepts of the Decalogue,also making use of a deviated conception of moral conscience; in this line in prof. Seifert stated that Amoris Laetitia # 303 is "a theological atomic bomb that threatens to tear down the entire moral edifice of the 10 commandments and Catholic moral teaching"[5] ;
  2. that for which they have spread an imprecise and erroneous discernment of particular cases and therefore an ambiguous, imprecise and deviant presentation of the extenuating circumstances of human acts; in fact, such circumstances come from the Pope and some of his collaborators, cunningly, expanded and are made capable of practically breaking down divine precepts leading to the consideration of true grave sins as venial sins or imperfections; in this line, Bishop Schneider affirmed: "the new disciples of Moses and the new Pharisees masked their denial of the indissolubility of marriage in practice and the suspension of the sixth Commandment on the basis of" case by case ", in disguise of the concept of mercy, using expressions such as: "path of discernment", "accompaniment" ... insinuating a possible suppression of imputability for cases of cohabitation in irregular unions ... "[6]

Following these paths in particular, but not only, the Pope and some of his collaborators have practically paved the way for the lawfulness of homosexual acts, contraception and adulterous acts ... and therefore to sacramental absolution and Eucharistic Communion for those who practice such acts. and they do not repent; it is no wonder what has just been said, given that the Pope praised the super abortionist US President Biden by telling him that he is a "good Catholic" and that he can receive the Eucharist [7].


We will also see other errors that emerge through Amoris Laetitia; in particular we will see in chapter III how the affirmations of Pope Francis and his collaborators lead to invalid Confessions, which do not remit sins but simply delude penitents; in chapter VI we will examine the Pope's errors regarding the death penalty ... etc.

I emphasize that, as I have amply shown in the book, the Pope's statement that Amoris Laetitia is a text that fully follows the Thomist moral doctrine is not true.[8], in fact in many points this exhortation affirms things completely opposite to the morality of Aquinas, even if it tries to cloak itself with the title of "Thomist document" to appear in the line of the sure doctrine ...

In these first months of 2022 I presented the first volume of this book of mine, in PDF format and in an online version on this site:  , you can download for free or read the book for free at the aforementioned site; the text is also available in paper format thanks to Youcanprint.[9]

The second volume of the book will be published later. The entire book consists of two volumes but I do not exclude that there is some appendix.

The free online publication and PDF makes it clear that I want the book to be read by absolutely everyone and therefore I have set up the site so that it can offer a good automatic translation even for those who do not know Italian. I invite you to make the text known not to advertise me but so that people fully understand the serious errors that Bergoglio and his collaborators are spreading and beware of them.

I specify that this book is not the first to show the errors spread in various ways by this Pope, many texts have already been written on this topic and many experts have spoken and talked about errors or even heresies presented in various way from Francis, in particular through Amoris Laetitia. The famous prof. J. Finnis significantly stated that the heresies planned by Pope Francis are today a primary cause and a manifestation of the worst ever crisis of Christianity[10].

I hope that my work will serve to show broadly and profoundly the work of treason that the Pope is carrying out against sound doctrine, and therefore I hope that my work: helps to convince many more people about this nefarious work of the current Supreme Pontiff and may arouse strong responses so that the Vicar of Christ once again becomes a beacon of Truth for the Catholic faithful.

To all those who will affirm that I am against the Pope and that this text is against him I say clearly from now on: I am for Christ-Truth, therefore I am for the Church and for the Pope but I am against errors precisely because I am with Christ-Truth for the true good of souls with regard to their eternal salvation. The supreme law of the Church is the salvation of souls which is realized in the Truth of Christ! Salvation is in Christ-Truth. The supreme law of the Church is, I stress, the salvation of souls in Christ, in the Truth of Christ. In the Church, therefore, the fundamental commitment is not to stand for or against a Bishop, for or against a Cardinal, for or against a Pope, but it is to stand for or against Christ! The Pope can make mistakes and sin, only in some cases is he infallible and in fact in various cases the Popes have made a mistake, as we will see clearly stated in this book, and so a Bishop and a Cardinal can make mistakes and sin, and we must not follow them in the error or sin but we must always follow Christ who does not err and does not sin. Salvation is in Christ the Truth, who speaks to us in particular through Holy Scripture and Tradition (cf. Catechism of the Catholic Church nn. 74-83). Whoever restricts theological and moral questions within the Church to the problem of staying with the Pope or not, as if the Pope were always infallible and always to be followed, evidently has a distorted view of things and does not know the history of the Church and Catholic doctrine. The Christian is, as the word itself says, he who follows Christ! The Christian follows the Pope only insofar as the Pope confirms in the Truth of Christ which is given to us in particular through Holy Scripture and Tradition. The Christian does not and must not follow the Pope when the latter strays from the Truth of Christ; the Holy Spirit guides the true Christian to follow the Truth and not simply the Pope.

I specify in this regard that some Christians, evidently incompetent, believe, also due to an erroneous interpretation of the biblical texts, that Christian obedience consists in always doing what the superior says, especially if it is the Pope, therefore they indicate how disobedient anyone who opposes the Pontiff's affirmations and rulings; it is necessary to point out to these Christians that their conception of obedience is in reality "Nazi" and not Christian ... the Christian must obey first and foremost the Supreme Superior who is God and therefore must submit to the indications and commands of other superiors only inasmuch as these indications and commands are not in contrast with the divine ones, yes. Thomas is very clear on this point[11]. On the other hand, "Nazi" obedience always leads to doing what the superior says and history has clearly shown us the colossal damage it causes.[12]

This book is not only a study but also a prayer text, with it I would also like to stimulate readers to invoke God to enlighten us better and better with his Truth and to intervene and free the Church from the obvious errors that Pope Francis and his collaborators are spreading.

Let us pray, therefore, already now with St. Antonio:
Our lady,
our only hope,
we beg you to enlighten our minds
with the splendor of your grace,
to purify us
with the whiteness of your purity,
because we can deserve to arrive
to the splendor of his glory.
To him the honor and the glory
for the eternal centuries. Amen.
