The Pope's Answer: I Am A Sinner

After Pope Francis arrived in Washington DC, Christian Today news obtained information about the first Latin American Pope and even interviewed him.  They asked Pope Francis who he is, and he gave a very humble reply.  "I am a sinner," he said.  But the great news is despite that he is a sinner, God's love and mercy saved him.  This is the message that the Pope carries throughout the entire world.  This is the same message that the Neocatechumenal Way also carry with them throughout the world.  According to Christian Today:  
"On the night of my election, I had an experience of the closeness of God that gave me a great sense of interior freedom and peace, and that sense has never left me," he told his friend, who is a fellow Latin American bishop.
That same year, he was asked the same question many others asked after he became the Pope: "Who Is Jorge Mario Bergoglio?" And Pope Francis had the perfect reply: "I am a sinner. This is the most accurate definition. It is not a figure of speech, a literary genre. I am a sinner."
But the great news is that despite being a sinner, God's love and mercy saved Bergoglio, and this is the same news that he is trying to spread to people all over the world.

Christian Today

God loves us even when we were sinners.  As the Apostle Paul stated:  "But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8).  The God we worship is a God who loves all sinners (murderers, thieves, cheaters, etc).  Christ ate and walked with sinners so they could be converted.  Out of love, He died for sinners so they could be redeemed. 

The Apostle Paul also gave his testimony of how he was a sinner:  

I persecuted the followers of this Way to their death, arresting both men and women and throwing them into prison, as the high priest and all the Council can themselves testify.  I even obtained letters from them to their associates in Damascus and went there to bring these people as prisoners to Jerusalem to be punished (Acts 22:4-5).  I do not understand what I do.  For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate to do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature.  For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out.  For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do - this I keep on doing.  Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but is sin living in me that does it (Romans 7:15-20)

For I am the least of the apostles and do not even deserve to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the Church of God.  But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace to me was not without effect.  No, I worked harder than all of them - yet not I, but the grace of God that was with me (1 Corinthians 15:9-10).  Although I am less than the least of all the Lord's people, this grace was given me: to preach to the Gentiles the boundless riches of Christ (Ephesians 3:8)


  1. Let's make a holiday puzzle for the jungle. They do not know if Luciano is a real person or not. Of course, we cannot convince them that their deep seated paranoia is in error. No, by the very nature of this mental disorder, no amount of truth will make them to deviate from their idea of fixation. It does not matter how many times we tell them they are wrong, they just keep broadcasting the same erroneous message. Like a broken radio. Lol.

    Now, here is how these people think:
    1. Fr Pius mist be in Milan, Italy.
    2. What is he doing in Milan? Well, he is entertaining himself in Italy by reading the latest vomit of Tim Rohr.
    3. What is the most important thing for Fr. Pius then? Of course, it is to write to the jungle using the alias Luciano.
    4. This makes it obvious for them that he must be nobody else, but Fr. Pius, despite the fact that he is repeatedly calling himself Luciano.

    Of course all this nonsense is very far from eality. Fr. Pius is not in Milan, Italy. He is not reading the jungle trash at all. He has no reason to use any alias, in particular, he had never called himself Luciano. In fact, Luciano is an Italian guy living in Milan, Italy. Who else would he be? Lol.

    Yes, jungle is a joke. Or rather it is a mental illness. The same delusion that calls Diana in a different names, like Susanna, despite the repeated objections from Diana. There is a very sick, lunatic mindset that overtook the brains of some otherwise respectable people. We need to pray for them.

    1. Dear Anonymous at 11:40 am,

      Yes, I have been identified with many names, and all of them are wrong. In fact, I have been objectified by Tim Rohr as "The Thing." He took away my human identity so people in the jungle can demonize me all they want......something which is very common in the jungle.

    2. Diana, this is diabolical. These people are dangerous. Nobody has the right to take away your or anyone's human identity! This is intrinsically evil. They claim to be god, but act like the devil.

    3. Um, "Diana" is a pseudonym, so there is no "human identity". It could be a he, a she, a group of people, or an artificial (un)intelligence.

      Also, its pretty easy to know who wrote a comment if they have cookies enabled and they are using the same device to make the comment. You can identify them no matter where they are.

    4. That is interesting... 90% of people who start a sentence by "um" is Tim Rohr. Ha-ha-ha.

    5. Well, obviously, I must be in the 10%.

    6. Why do you read the jungle blog? What can it possibly matter to those who walk in the Way?

  2. Dear Diana, the latest news from Vatican support the assumption of an organized criminal association with the aim of divulging information and documents concerning the fundamental interests of the Catholic Church. Liberal journalists of anti-Catholic groups stole and published several confidential information from Vatican. Gianluigi Nuzzi and Emiliano Fittipaldi said they had done nothing wrong and had simply fulfilled their professional duty. This is a big lie. They maintained an international conspiracy network to collect damaging information on the Catholic Church despite a law of Vatican that prohibits this kind of activity.

    The scandal has far reaching implications regarding "freedom of speech" groups inside the church. Let me recall that the jungle is regularly publishing stolen images and documents about Guam Catholic leaders. They even pose security risk to church officials, by making their itinerary available on the Internet and openly discussing the possibility of their assassination while on a trip. This is scandalous! They refer to "freedom of speech" and follow detailed instructions of liberal anti-Church organizations of international reach like SNAP and ACLU.

    It is very much plausible that the jungle is part of Nuzzi's and Fittipaldi's international network. Frenchie and Tim could be the locally assigned residents of Nuzzi and Fittipaldi and their ilks producing damaging or so looking information on a daily basis. Tim had bragged before of writing a book and making a movie of it in the style of Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code who claimed the Jesus Christ had sexual relation with Mary Magdala.

    I can tell you, dear Diana, if people at the jungle would know what kind of soup is being served for them by the masterminds, they would spit it out immediately and would wash their mouth thoroughly. Unfortunately, they as misled and fooled to follow this conspirators without thinking and give their money for fake causes. As the Vatican news below says, it is criminal association, nothing less. It is time to wake up!

    Vatican puts journalists on trial over leaks book, amid human rights furore

    A criminal law making it illegal to leak documents was introduced in 2013 after another leaks scandal that preceded the resignation of Pope Benedict that year.

    That scandal, in which Benedict’s butler was arrested for stealing documents from the pope’s desk and leaking them to Nuzzi, came to be known as “Vatileaks”. The Italian media has dubbed the latest episodes “Vatileaks II”. (...)

    A Vatican prosecutor told the court that the Holy See did not intend to muzzle freedom of the press and that the defendants were bring tried for the way the documents were leaked by the officials and obtained by the journalists.

    Two of the officials indicted, Spanish Monsignor Angel Lucio Vallejo Balda, who was number two at the Vatican’s Prefecture for Economic Affairs, and Italian laywoman Francesca Chaouqui, a public relations expert, were arrested earlier this month.

    Balda and Chaouqui were both members of a now-defunct commission Francis set up in 2013 to study economic and administrative reforms. Vatican employee Nicola Maio, Balda’s assistant, also went on trial.

    In their indictment, prosecutors said Balda, Chaouqui and Maio formed “an organised criminal association” with the aim of “divulging information and documents concerning the fundamental interests of the Holy See and the State”.

    Nuzzi and Fittipaldi wrote books based on the leaks. Their indictment said both solicited and applied pressure, especially on Vallejo Balda, to obtain secret documents and information.

    1. Who cares what goes on in the jungle?

    2. 9.33pm many of us care deeply about the Jungle. It is an Important part of our lives providing spiritual nourishment to our minds hearts souls. It gives us food from heaven. jungle is also an instrument for teaching the faith. At the same time Jungle provides readers with updated information on the internal fights involving NCW in Guam. Given the serious issues raised against Archbishop Apuron jungle helps readers better understand Archbishop Apuron.

    3. Dear Anonymous at 12:56 am,

      The NCW communities spends some time with the Archbishop. I would think that those who spend some time with him know him better.
