In Pope Francis’ encyclical, “Laudato Si’, mi’ Signore” (“Praise be to you, my Lord”): On The Common Care Of Our Home, the Pope identifies himself as “the Holy Father,” and as a Christian. Nevertheless, Francis teaches the following in this encyclical,
“In the words of this beautiful canticle, Saint Francis of Assisi reminds us that our common home is like a sister with whom we share our life and a beautiful mother who opens her arms to embrace us. ‘Praise be to you, my Lord, through our Sister, Mother Earth, who sustains and governs us, and who produces various fruit with colored flowers and herbs.’”
Is Francis endorsing the idea that the earth “governs us” rather than the Lord? Nowhere in the Bible is the earth called “Mother” or “sister.” This is demonic theology rooted in the “mystery religion” of Babylon. Anthropomorphizing the earth, especially as female, has always been a mark of pagan and Satanic worship. As Alexander Hislop points out,
“It has been known all along that Popery was baptized Paganism; but God is now making it manifest, that the Paganism which Rome has baptized is, in all its essential elements, the very Paganism which prevailed in the ancient literal Babylon...”
Pope Francis is first and foremost a Jesuit. As a Jesuit, he is known to be cunning as a fox. In the third paragraph of the encyclical, he clearly specifies a crisis and targets his intended audience. “Now, faced as we are with global environmental deterioration, I wish to address every person living on this planet…about our common home.” It remains to be seen, then, why Pope Francis has so early in his reign come forth with a statement of gross paganism as part of his supposedly Christian world view.
