Members of the Pontifical Academy met late May, 2019 at the Vatican to discuss the topic of: “Nation, State, Nation-State.”
Pope Francis is pushing for steps toward global authority that supersedes the rights of individual countries, all with the goal of pursuing “the common good” on issues like climate change and immigration.
“When a supranational common good is clearly identified, it is necessary to have a special authority legally and concordantly constituted capable of facilitating its implementation. We think of the great contemporary challenges of climate change, new forms of slavery and peace,”
“The nation-state is no longer able to procure the common good of its populations alone. The common good has become global and nations must associate for their own benefit,” Francis said.
While addressing the conference, Francis rebuked the trend of nationalism among individual countries and the many tensions that “come from an excessive demand for sovereignty on the part of states.”
Francis also implied national sovereignty becomes twisted when countries do not have a welcoming attitude toward migrants.
Issued a joint declaration with Muslim leader proclaiming that ‘pluralism and diversity of religions are willed by God‘;
“The church observes with concern the reemergence, in many parts of the world, of currents that are aggressive towards foreigners, especially immigrants, as well as a growing nationalism that neglects the common good,” he told the conference.
This, in turn, “threatens to jeopardise consolidated forms of international cooperation, undermines the aims of international organisations as a space for dialogue and meeting for all countries in a spirit of mutual respect, and hinders the attainment of the sustainable development goals approved unanimously by the United Nations,” the pope said.
The Pope also said individual countries can no longer look out for their own people by themselves due to globalisation.
The Pope also pushed the idea of supranational entities to the conference. A supranational union is defined as a type of multinational political union where negotiated power is delegated to an authority by governments of member states. The term is sometimes used to describe the European Union, according to Wikipedia.
For instance, a group of nations could “strengthen their cooperation by connecting certain functions and services to intergovernmental institutions that manage their common interests,” he said.
“When a supranational common good is clearly identified, it is necessary to have a special authority that is legally and concordantly constituted and capable of facilitating its implementation,” the Pope concluded.
As I have posted many times, this Pope is a strong candidate for the end times False Prophet. It must be remembered that Pope Francis is the leader of over a billion of the world’s Christians. This push by him for supranational union is a big step towards one world government. However, the big indicator for him being the False Prophet is his statement that Jesus is not the only way to God and as a result acceptance of other religions as valid.
Pope Francis on Muslims – ‘We must never forget that they profess to hold the faith of Abraham, and together with us they adore the one, merciful God, who will judge humanity on the last day.‘ (November 24th, 2013 VATICAN.VA)
It is amazing that the following prophecy from Catholic Archbishop Fulton Sheen is coming to fruition
“We are living in the days of the Apocalypse–the last days of our era…. The two great forces of the Mystical Body of Christ and the Mystical Body of Antichrist are beginning to draw up the battle lines for the catastrophic contest. The False Prophet will have a religion without a cross. A religion without a world to come. A religion to destroy religions. There will be a counterfeit church. Christ’s Church will be one. And the False Prophet will create the other. The false church will be worldly ecumenical, and global. It will be a loose federation of churches and religions forming some type of global association, world parliament of churches. It will be emptied of all divine content and will be the mystical body of the Antichrist. The mystical body on earth today will have its Judas Iscariot and he will be the false prophet. Satan will recruit him from among our bishops.“
