The Finding in the Temple

Pope Francis – “Repair my Church, which, as you can see is falling into ruin”

The one who conquers, I will make him a pillar in the temple of my God. Never shall he go out of it, and I will write on him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down from my God out of heaven, and my own new name.
(Rev 3:12)

I think we can now see how the St. Francis connection may tie the enacted parable of the 153 fish of the Second Pentecost all together. (See the earlier post The Three Days of Darkness and the Angelic Pope for more details).

Pope Francis will be installed on 19th Mar – the Feast of St. Joseph.


A Vision of Robert of Uzes on the Papal Crisis and Angelic Pope (1292):

In the same place I saw in a dream that I was with my oldest brother and younger sister. While we were walking we came to a door and heard the words: “The pope is inside, if you wish to see him.” We entered and kissed his feet as he stood on the ground. I was amazed that he would sit upon the ground and looked upon his short narrow bed with its very poor covering. I said: “Why is it, Father, tht you have such a poor bed? The poorest of the poor bishops of the world would not have a meaner one.” The pope said to me, “We must be humbled.” Suddenly we were on our way down a mountain and I saw him in the habit of the Friars Minor [i.e. the Franiciscans]. I fell upon my face and kissed his naked foot; then I held him up on the right side. As we began to ascend the mountain, I held the pope up on the left side and a secular priest supported him on the right. While he ascended, the pope began to limp badly so that he would not have been able to go up had we not carried him. While we carried him, we entered a hospice at the top of the mountain; there were kettles and pots there, but the fire was out. We glanced all around and saw no one, but when we entered we looked in a small place as through a window and saw some women looking at the pope. He lifted his hand and blessed them.
