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!”
