Francis's False Humility doesn't lead to True Humility in Christ & the Resurrection of Easter

The great theologian Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange said "Humility... consists in abasing ourselves before God."
(Christianperfection.info, "The Three Ages of the Interior Life")

True humility or abasement is shown to involve repentance from sin and abasement in and with Jesus to God the Father:

"Catechism of the Catholic Church

 537: Through Baptism the Christian... must enter into this mystery of humble self-abasement and repentance, go down into the water with Jesus in order to rise with Him, be reborn of water and the Spirit so as to become the Father's beloved son in the Son."

Pope Francis in his Palm Sunday liturgy homily said:

"[Jesus] knows that true triumph involves making room for God... self-emptying. To remain silent, to pray, to accept humiliation."

Francis in a homily in 2014 explained what he means by humiliation:

"That is the path of Jesus Christ: abasement, humility, humiliation... if a thought, if a desire takes you along the road of humility and abasement, of service to others, is from Jesus."
(Catholic News Agency, "Pope Francis: the path of "humiliation' leads us to Jesus," January 7, 2014)

Francis is wrong if he means that "humility and abasement, of service to others" by themselves are the "path of Jesus Christ."

The true path of Jesus Christ to true humility and true charity is "abasing ourselves before God" in repentance from sin and in adoration of the Father by going "down into the water with Jesus in order to rise with Him, be reborn of water and the Spirit so as to become the Father's beloved son in the Son."

After "abasing ourselves before God" and adoring Him then "service for others" flows from our repentance from sin, abasement before God and love of Him.

Catholics following the Apostle St. James's "faith without works is dead" are not Martin Luther Protestants who believe that good works are useless, but we don't abase ourselves before man or do service for man unless it is ultimately pointing to abasement and service to God.

Sadly, it appears for Francis that humility and abasement doesn't necessarily involve or include repentance from sin, abasement before God and adoration of Him.

St. Paul put it best:

"Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things and consider them as dung."

Yes, even humiliation and service to others unless it flows from adoration and love of God is "dung," but if it flows from true humility and charity it is precious for "faith without works is dead."

Sadly, self-humiliation is not always good and can be evil. We find this out by a little research into a dung word, coprophilia, of Francis that is related to perversion and moral evil:

"[I]n Psychopathia Sexualis... categorize foot fetishism [such as foot kissing] and coprophilia under the same heading... Self-humiliation."
(Book. google.com, "Dada and Surrealist Films,"Page 165)

This brings us to a historical fact of Francis:

Never before in the history of Catholicism has a healthy pope repeatedly refused to kneel in front of the Holy Eucharist and meanwhile kneeled spontaneously to kiss the feet of politicians.

To put this in perspective, imagine if Pope John Paul II while he was still healthy had repeatedly refused to kneel in front of the Holy Eucharist, but meanwhile kneeled spontaneously to kiss the feet of Mikhail Gorbachev, President Ronald Reagan or a Muslim politician.

Pray Francis comes to understand true humility and starts kneeling before the Holy Eucharist.

May we all this Easter have true humility and abase ourselves before God "with Jesus in order to rise with Him, be reborn of water and the Spirit so as to become the Father's beloved son in the Son."

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.

To be more precise, however, John Paul II did kiss the Koran, and invite all religions, regardless whether they were anti-family,or anti-life to pray with him for world peace, as if God listens to their false prayers. He even apologized to these false sects, and gave them the impression he approved of them. Not once did he have the Charity to tell them to convert, or face the likeliness of eternal damnation.

Might it be Good for all of us & for Francis to Read about the "Gruesome Death of Arius"?

  I have read the letters of your piety , in which you have requested me to make known to you the events of my times relating to myself, and to give an account of that most impious heresy of the Arians , in consequence of which I have endured these sufferings, and also of the manner of the death of Arius . With two out of your three demands I have readily undertaken to comply, and have sent to your Godliness what I wrote to the Monks; from which you will be able to learn my own history as well as that of the heresy . But with respect to the other matter, I mean the death, I debated with myself for a long time, fearing lest any one should suppose that I was exulting in the death of that man. But yet, since a disputation which has taken place among you concerning the heresy , has issued in this question, whether Arius died after previously communicating with the Church ; I therefore was necessarily desirous of giving an account of his death, as thinking that the question woul
