Is Pope Francis Promoting a A New Kind of Cross?

Is Pope Francis looking to promote a “new kind” of Cross – one that does NOT include Jesus Christ?  On numerous occasions, the Pope has used, received as a gift, and even kissed crosses whose design does not include Jesus, and which bear startling resemblance to occult symbolism. In this article, we review three of these important instances where the Pope was publicly seen with the “new” crosses.

A “Snake” Cross in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

BRAZIL-POPE-WYD-CARDINALS-BISHOPSDuring his visit to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil for World Youth Day on July 27, 2013, Pope Francis was seen holding a most unusual cross during a meeting with cardinals and bishops.

The Pope was likewise seen kissing the unusual cross (with what seems like a serpent’s head) during the same meeting. The original photo can still be found in Getty Images.




A Communist Cross in Bolivia

On July 8, 2015, Pope Francis received – and subsequently kept – a “Communist crucifix” as a gift from Bolivian President Evo Morales (left).  The cross was presented by President Morales to Pope Francis upon his arrival in Bolivia during his South American tour.

According to reports, Morales told Francis that the “Communist crucifix” was modeled on a design created by the Rev. Luis Espinal, a politically active priest killed in Bolivia in 1980. The Pope stopped and prayed at the site of the shooting of Rev. Espinal.

One of Espinal’s friends and fellow Jesuits, the Rev. Xavier Albo, said Espinal’s intent was for the church to be in dialogue with Marxism, and said Espinal had altered his crucifix to incorporate the Communists’ most potent symbol: the hammer and sickle. Espinal was one of the foremost proponents of Liberation Theology – a Marxist-leaning theology movement born in South America that was condemned by both Pope Benedict XVI and Pope John Paul II.

In an interview with the press on his way back to Rome after the trip, the Pope defended the “Communist cross” and praised Espinal:

Espinal was an enthusiast of this Marxist analysis of the reality, but also of theology using Marxism. From this, he came up with this work. Also the poetry of Espinal was of this kind of protest. But, it was his life, it was his thought. He was a special man, with so much human geniality, who fought in good faith, no? Making a hermeneutic like this, I understand this work. For me it wasn’t an offense, but I had to do this hermeneutic, and I say it to you so that there aren’t any wrong opinions.

Feast of Corpus Christi

Many Catholic commentators, including priests such as Fr. Kevin Cusick, expressed serious concerns about the “new cross” that the Pope publicly carried. See below the Twitter reaction of Fr. Cusick.


“A New Form of the Cross Will be Introduced”

Both Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI had never deviated from the traditional design of the Cross, which has as its center the person of Jesus Christ.  This historically unique situation – of a living Pope seemingly introducing unusual, different interpretations of the Cross – reminds us of a prophecy given to Maria Divine Mercy, an Irish seer who has received numerous messages and prophecies from the Holy Trinity since 2010.  Click on this article for a more comprehensive and critical analysis of Maria Divine Mercy –  The Book of Truth: A Critical Review.

One of those prophecies included a prediction that “a new form of the cross will be introduced”.

In a message given on April 30, 2013 to Maria Divine Mercy, Jesus warned about the upcoming “new form of the cross” that was to be introduced by the False Prophet:

The letter is being written now to beckon all those in the service of the Catholic Church. Soon, all of My sacred servants will be informed of the changes, which they will be told are for the good of the Church.

The new rules, which will see amendments made to prayers during the Holy Mass, will seem innocent. To many, they won’t notice the significance, but it will relate to the Holy Eucharist and My Presence within It. The word ‘commemorate’ will be used and all churches will soon be stripped bare of their treasures. The taking of treasures, including gold Tabernacles – which will be replaced by those made of wood and stone – will be one of the signs that they are being gathered for the New World Religion.

Churches will be changed within their walls and this will involve the desecration of altars. The Monstrance,  holding the Holy Eucharist, will begin to disappear and the days when My Holy Host is exposed will come to an end.

Cast scorn upon My Word now, and you will weep tears when these acts are brought before you. Soon, not long afterwards, the garments worn by My sacred servants, will be altered and a new form of the Cross will be introduced. The new atrocity will not be based on the simple cross. Instead it will feature, discreetly, the head of the beast.

I ask you to gather My holy Crosses now and keep them in your homes, along with Holy Water. I urge all of you to hold onto the Truth of what I have told you. Then I want you to trust in Me completely. Never believe that I Am leaving you at the mercy of the evil one. I will remain close to you at all times. I will pour special blessings on the heads of My beloved, loyal sacred servants to keep them entwined with My Sacred Heart.


  1. I am scared about the future of the church and of the true believers of our redeemer’s holy sacrifice on the cross for us out of love.Will the hands of God let it happen?Always stand for the Truth :Sunday gospel June 25th.

    1. I say this with certainty, by the Grace of God and the Power of the Holy Spirit, which you, I, Catholic are sealed with in Confirmation: FEAR NOTHING. Strike satan and his minions at the heart. PRAY FOR SOULS. Fear does no good. PRAY AND STAY AWAKE until the last drop of blood. WAKE UP CATHOLICS! It is the last moment. PRAY. PRAY THE ROSARY. HAVE COURAGE. HAVE GREAT COURAGE!

  2. I don’t believe in these crosses, and I am reading “The Book of Truth” daily.
    I hope that the Pope reads it too, and will soon acknowledge that the book speaks truth. This is Jesus’ message to us in these last days, with a ‘Warning’ to help us prepare for the final days before he returns to this earth, we must be ready.

  3. Wow great article. That cross is the start. No corpus on the cross, its not Catholic! Its the start slowly, slowly the changes creep in. Speak soon. Martina Just finished night shift and had a lovely sleep

  4. I can only pray Almighty God to protect His Church from attack of evil doers. I also pray Holy Mother and St. Michael, the Archangel to protect us from the devil. Let God shower His Holy Spirit upon our hierarchy. Since good part of the laity are lookwarmers ,thete are chances of them fall prey to the evils. I personally found plastic rosaries with cross on which snake inplace of INRI on circulation, free of cost in India. Oh! Jesus, help us.

  5. Will someone please ask the Holy Father directly re his idea of the new cross without Jesus Christ on it?

  6. With Pope Francis strangely behaving like an Anti-Christ confirms the end-times is very near. Jesus’s prophecies as said in THE BOOK OF TRUTH to Maria Divine Mercy, are slowly coming true one by one. I always thought that all the bad, negative and evil things that people spoke about Pope Francis were all fibs and rubbish, said out of jealousy. I always say that those people are so bad and sinful to talk about the Pope like that. But now seeing him kissing and handling of those sacrilegious crosses I had to believe that he is not Christ’s pope. It was also published that he was meeting with leaders from the Anglican and Lutheran churches to have common mass when during Consecration the priest must not say anything but keep mum on the Words of Consecration. But I still pray and hope that Francis is not the anti-Christ pope that Jesus had warned us about. So sad! I really hope I won’t live to see the day when all this happen.

      1. Porque desde 1999 es miembro del Club masónico rotario.
        Código de Derecho Canónico de 1917, prohíbe a los clérigos la afiliación al Rotary Club y condena el delito de pertenencia a la masonería (c. 2355), penado con excomunión, y por la afiliación al Rotary Club. El Papa Pío XII decretó prohibición de la pertenencia de los clérigos al club rotario que nunca ha sido revocada, por lo tanto está vigente.
