Francis And His Errors: “Jesus came into the world to learn how to be a man…”

[Francis said:]

Even though Jesus is God, He “is annihilated, He humbled Himself and became a servant. This is the glory of the Cross of Jesus”. [He added:] ‘Jesus came into the world to learn how to be a man, and by being a man, walk with men. He came into the world to obey, and He obeyed. But he learned this obedience from suffering.” (Homily at Domus Sanctae Marthae , September 15, 2014 – Original complete Spanish text.

The new website (run by a group of priests with permission of their bishops ) at

Answers include Fathers of the Church, Catechism of Catholic Church, Scripture, as well as our dear good Popes Pius XII, John Paul II and Benedict XVI.
