Canon Law priest and doctor accuses Pope Francis of heresy and schism

In video posted online, a Canon Law priest based in Brazil has formally accused Pope Francis of heresy and schism. He went further as well, saying that Pope Francis is the false prophet in the Book of Revelation and an antipope. 

Fr. Paulo Renato Dornelles is a Doctor in Utroque Iure (both Canon Law and Civil Law) by the Pontifical Lateran University (Rome) with Summa cum laude. He was an Ecclesiastic Judge during 15 years in the diocese of Porto Alegre (Brazil), formerly professor at the Pontifical Catholic University of Porto Alegre and at the Higher Institute of Canon Law in Rio de Janeiro.

In this video he formally accuses pope Francis of heresy and schism. Because of his positions regarding Francis, Fr. Dornelles was forced to quit his diocese of Porto Alegre, which he served as a priest during 30 years.

Fr. Dornelles is not the first priest to formally accuse Pope Francis of heresy. Numerous clergymen, including the renowned English theologian Fr. Aidan Nichols, have accused Pope Francis of heresy in an open letter, and have in fact called on the world’s bishops to “take the steps necessary to deal with the grave situation” of a pope committing this “crime”. 

It must also be noted that many reputable Marian apparitions and prophecies have all predicted the rise of the “false prophet” of the Book of Revelation – a false pope – just prior to the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. 

Below is a full transcript of Fr Dornelles’ video, which can be found in its original here


“I am Dr. Fr. Paulo Renato Dornelles from Kyria Eschatological Community. In my sermons, since 2016, as published in videos, on Facebook, under my name, and on the “Comunidade Kyria” Youtube Channel…I formally accuse Pope Francis of being an antipope. Don’t be surprised, because we have already faced 37-38 before him in Church history.  And for worse, I recognise Pope Francis as the one who configures the “false prophet”. 

“We must consider, first of all, that Our Lord Jesus created the papacy in the Catholic Church in order to ensure the unity of Faith. The Pope, as Jesus teaches in the Gospel of Luke Chapter 22 v. 32, shall confirm the brothers in the faith. He is not there to invent faith, or to build another merely human Church,  as Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI reminds us in his last letter.

“The antipope Francis has already committed a formal heresy in “Amoris Laetitia” when, in its n. 295 says there is “a gradualness in the prudential exercise of free acts on the part of subjects who are not in a position to understand, appreciate, or fully carry out the objective demands of the law.” This way, he moves against the Sacraments, chiefly that of Marriage and of the Holy Eucharist,  and against the dogmatic teaching of the Church and all her Magisterium, thus configuring a schism against the whole Church. 

“And so he goes on spreading heresies in this document and in his teachings these long, last six years.  We are in a schism since at least 2016. 

“Besides all these, he has associated himself with certain people, remember that pitiful ex-cardinal now reduced to layman, McCarrick. All these proves his program for the destruction of the papacy and the Church, as he has already proposed in his first post-synodal Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii Gaudium

“Indeed, since his election, due to his heresies, Pope Francis puts himself as excommunicated. Out of the Church. And he cannot direct it. And he is dragging after him, unfortunately, all the Church, which stays inert and in communion with him. This way, he has created, overnight, a counter-church that is deceiving Catholic people with all the appearance of catholicity. 

“Cardinals, bishops, priests, laypeople, dioceses and parishes, movements, orders and congregations don’t have the courage to oppose his nefarious work of destruction! 

“For all of this, I affirm Francis to be more than just an antipope, but the one that fulfills the form of the false prophet of Revelation 13:11. This, ultimately, becomes the main proof of how deeply we are actually living now the end times. In order to confront this reality we are getting united in a community, through Whatsapp (+55-51-99641-027) to get organised and build a refuge, as a true Catholic Church, that will know how to face the present times and all that is reserved to us. You are invited to join us in this community. God bless you!”

  1. Yes, after observing various Marian messages and the scriptures, l have seen the church with a dubious leader. He shall be a leader until he will remove the Eucharist from the Tabernacle.

  2. This priest is correct and very brave to do this. All Catholics need to read the messages of ‘Maria Divine Mercy’. Jesus revealed to her in 2010 that Pope Benedict would be forced out of the Papacy, and that he would be replaced by a False Prophet who would prepare the world for the antichrist.
    “My Holy Vicar, Pope Benedict, needs your prayers. Pray for him daily for he needs protection on every level to take him through the torment that lies ahead. It is important that My followers keep alert to any new pope that may come forward for he will not be from God.”

  3. It is necessary to expose the heretical past of Bergoglio to show that he was not qualified to be a candidate for the papacy because he had already deviated from the Catholic faith in Argentina where he was already a heretic, apostate and schismatic. And the Magisterium of our Catholic Church decrees invalid and voids the elevation of a heretic to the papacy.

  4. We certainly are living in the end times.True and committed Catholics should be spiritually alert, and also adequately informed about the current state of the Church.Above all,we should pray for divine protection and preservation of our Catholic faith through the maternal intercession and love of our Blessed Mother Mary,the Mother of the Church. We shall all triumph through the Immaculate Heart!

  5. To the Prophecy of Daniel “The Daily Sacrifices would be Taken Away”, not necessarily the Communion itself but the FAITH associated with it, making it to be Symbolically as in Protestantism, in short Protestantization of the Church & with a recent survey showing that a great majority of Catholics in America do not believe in Transubstantization, interestingly about the same percent that are Complacent to Sodom, contrary to the warning of Jesus “Remember Lots wife” not just to Sodom but COMPLACENCY towards it.

    1. No Abey, the actual living Presence of the Eucharistic Christ will be removed from ‘catholic’ churches. Today has come the news that there are Catholic deacons in the Amazon who are ‘offering Mass’ (invalidly, of course) and Bergoglio knows about it. The priesthood is in the process of being invalidated and soon the Mass and the Sacraments will be found only in refuges, homes etc. The institutional Church will starve the faithful of this spiritual Food. I has been prophecies and it is now happening.

  6. I have just finisbed reading rise if the antichrist by Hans Binder . So worth the read Then more should understand what’s happening
