Is Francis a Pentecostal?

On June 14, the Jesuit America's headline was:

"Is Francis our first charismatic [Pentecostal] pope?"

In the above article by pro-Francis Austen Ivereigh, the answer was:

"[N]o pope has ever identified as closely with the Catholic Charismatic [Pentecostal] Renewal, nor been so keen to move it to the front and center in the church."

Francis as a cardinal "dropped to his knees on stage to receive the 'blessing' from well-known Charismatic [Pentecostal] Father Raniero Castalamessa OFM and a number of Protestants [apparently Pentecostals] pastors."
(Catholic Family News, "Pope Francis, Pentecostals and Interreligious Action, May 10, 2013)

Francis who never kneels in front of God in the Blessed Sacrament kneeled for a Pentecostal "blessing."

Apparently, for Francis Pentecostalism is more important than God in the Blessed Sacrament.

Is Francis a Pentecostal?

It appears that Francis may be the reason that Catholics are "rapidly" becoming Pentecostals in Argentina:

"Pentecostalism has been rapidly growing in Argentina, drawing away large numbers of Catholics."
( Church Militant, "Argentina Poll: Catholic Church out of top 100 Influential Institutions," January 4, 2017)

Is Francis in love with the Amazon because the majority of the population is probably Pentecostal and in some areas "80 percent" Pentecostal because of Latin American bishops like Francis?
(LifeSiteNews, Amazon bishop: Synod document fails to mention area's huge pedophilia problem, Pentecostalism," August 26, 2019)

Is Pentecostalism a heresy?

The religion expert Fr. John Hardon answered this question:

"I personally believe, latter-day Pentecostalism is in the same stream with Gnosticism, Montanism, and Illuminatism.... There are grave needs in the Church today... we must use the means of centuries old Christian wisdom... Pentecostalism is not one of this means."
The Real Presence, Pentecostalism: Evaluating a Phenomenal)

This is what Bishop Fulton Sheen said:

"There just isn't any such thing as a charismatic Church."
(Academia.edu, "Why the Current Practice of asking for and Speaking in the 'Gifts of Tongues' should stop in the Catholic Movements")

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

Pentecostalism is the perfect vehicle for individualist Protestantism; and thus for Jorgé Bergöglio.

“I have declared that the noise coming out of my mouth is he ‘wind of the spirit’. It is so, because I know”.

Taylor Marshall finally admitted that "Francis teaches HERESY," now, the question is will he do a Skojec & a Schneider Cop Out

    Doctor of the Church St. Francis de Sales totally confirmed beyond any doubt the possibility of a heretical pope and what must be done by the Church in such a situation: "[T]he Pope... WHEN he is EXPLICITLY a heretic , he falls ipso facto from his dignity and out of the Church, and the Church MUST either deprive him , or, as some say, declare him deprived, of his Apostolic See." (The Catholic Controversy, by St. Francis de Sales, Pages 305-306) Taylor Marshall finally admitted that "Pope Francis teaches HERESY: Pope Pius XII condemned the heresy of Francis": Pope Francis on Feb 2 2022, taught, "that in Christ no one can ever truly separate us from those we love because the bond is an existential bond, a strong bond that is in our very nature...who have denied the faith, who are apostates." Pope Pius XII taught the exact opposite when he wrote of those: "who have not been so unfortunate as to separate themselves from the unity of the Body, or b

Wernz-Vidal: "One cannot consider as Schismatics those who Refuse to Obey the Roman Pontiff because they would hold his person Suspect or, because of Widespread Rumors, Doubtfully Elected"

    Pope Francis is tottering on the precipice of Hell. None of this means he isn't the pope, and such talk among the laity is scandalous in its own right. Not a single cardinal in that 2013 conclave has come out and said the election was rigged and Bergoglio isn't the pope, that he is in fact an anti-pope . If he is, a future pope can declare that, when Jorge Bergoglio will no longer be a pope. But if the very men gathered in conclave haven't made that public accusation,  anyone who is suggesting that better take into account that they too will have to give an account of themselves to Almighty God when they die . Such talk adds to the scandal of the "little ones," the simple, even potential converts, who, when they hear big-mouth Catholics on social media saying he's not really the pope, draw back from approaching the Church. Do any of us desire to stand in front Our Blessed Lord as the Supreme Judge and explain why, in our desire for more c

The Nuremberg Trial-like Excuse which Cardinal Burke has so Staggeringly, so Stereotypically Proffered on the Promised “Formal Correction”

Does Cardinal Burke think Francis is an antipope? On at least five occasions, Cardinal Burke has rejected the magisterial nature of official papal teaching (in one case, pre-emptively dismissing a hypothetical official teaching of the Magisterium): Cardinal Burke has rejected the official teaching of Pope Francis in the new Apostolic Constitution Episcopalis Communio concerning the possibility that a pope can raise the final synodal document to the level of ordinary magisterium, if the pope chooses. (We covered the Episcopalis Communio here .) The whole apostolic constitution on the Synod is problematic. … This idea that either the Pope on his own or the Synod together with the Pope can create some new Magisterium [i.e. a new teaching of the ordinary Magisterium], is simply false. The Synod is a consultative body, to help the Pope to see how best to present the Church’s teaching in time. It’s not able to create ordinary Magisterium. As a canon lawyer, Cardinal Burk
