Wonderful news in the headlines today, 12/4/2021: A Greek Orthodox Priest publicly called out Pope Francis for being a heretic. Finally a holy man had the strength to call out what many Catholics already knew.

You will also find some articles calling the priest, "An elderly man, dressed like an orthodox priest..." to cast doubt on this man.

Haven’t they been publicly calling ALL Popes heretics since, like, 1054…? If it had been Pope Pius X or someone, it would have been the same exact reaction. What you need to realize is that he is only calling Francis a “heretic” because he assumes (wrongly) that Francis is a Catholic, hence the hostility. But the reality is Francis isn’t even Catholic much less the pope of the Holy Roman Catholic Church!

I think it was Jay Dyer in one of his streams who suspected that the RCC might fuse with the Greek Orthodox. This is a clear sign they are working in that direction. Look at him, a white agent of Satan going around to corrupt the world even more. Any Catholic who doesn't see what this man is doing will be led straight to hell.

“…The great movement of apostasy being organized in every country for the establishment of a One-World Church which shall have neither dogmas, nor hierarchy, neither discipline for the mind, nor curb for the passions, and which, under the pretext of freedom and human dignity, would bring back to the world (if such a Church could overcome) the reign of legalized cunning and force, and the oppression of the weak, and of all those who toil and suffer. […] Indeed, the true friends of the people are neither revolutionaries, nor innovators: they are traditionalists.” —Pope St. Pius X, Apostolic Letter Notre Charge Apostolique, 1910

  • “Therefore the whole and entire Catholic doctrine is to be presented and explained: by no means is it permitted to pass over in silence or to veil in ambiguous terms the Catholic truth regarding the nature and way of justification, the constitution of the Church, the primacy of jurisdiction of the Roman Pontiff, and the only true union by the return of the dissidents to the one true Church of Christ.”
    —Pope Pius XII, Instruction On the Ecumenical Movement, n. II, 1949
  • “Even on the plea of promoting unity it is not allowed to dissemble one single dogma; for, as the Patriarch of Alexandria warns us, ‘although the desire of peace is a noble and excellent thing, yet we must not for its sake neglect the virtue of loyalty in Christ.’ Consequently, the much desired return of erring sons to true and genuine unity in Christ will not be furthered by exclusive concentration on those doctrines which all, or most, communities glorying in the Christian name accept in common. The only successful method will be that which bases harmony and agreement among Christ’s faithful ones upon all the truths, and the whole of the truths, which God has revealed.”
    —Pope Pius XII, Encyclical Orientalis Ecclesiae, n. 16, 1944
  • “Trusting in God and relying on His ever present help, [St. Benedict] went south and arrived at a fort ‘called Cassino situated on the side of a high mountain…; on this stood an old temple where Apollo was worshipped by the foolish country people, according to the custom of the ancient heathens. Around it likewise grew groves, in which even till that time the mad multitude of infidels used to offer their idolatrous sacrifices. The man of God coming to that place broke the idol, overthrew the altar, burned the groves, and of the temple of Apollo made a chapel of St. Martin. Where the profane altar had stood he built a chapel of St. John; and by continual preaching he converted many of the people thereabout’.”
    —Pope Pius XII, Encyclical Fulgens Radiatur, n. 11, 1947; showing the anti-ecumenical nature of Roman Catholicism and that the true path to the conversion and salvation of people is not to respect their false religions but to lead them out of them into the True Faith

Michael Witcoff also said this in his Joint stream with Roosh a few months ago. I remember because it piqued my interest.

This article is a couple years old, but even some Catholics have dared to state that the pope is a heretic. This pope seems a bit too liberal.

He's not a simple monk, he's (ex - but I don't feel that way) Archimandrite Methodios of the Athos monastery Esphigmenou. It's an old brotherhood of extremely tough monks, who severed all ties with the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople because the Patriarch prayed with the Pope, and it's an automatic exclusion for heresy.

They are trying to eject them from the monastery for decades now, monks have defended the monastery multiple times, using their fists, boards and the Archimandrite, who's in the video, even threw a Molotov cocktail on police officers :) They gave him 20 year prison sentence for it in absentia, but it seems he won with God's help.

Monks there don't get food deliveries, no monetary assistance from the state, but people organize with Jeeps and bring them supplies, help them out etc. Hilandar Monastery, of Serbian Orthodox Church, has good relations with them.

So are they part of the canonical Orthodox Church..? (Im not criticizing but being *canonically* Orthodox seems to be a big deal for many Orthodox on this forum).

If you're asking me brother, I don't really share the outlook and get stuck on technicalities. They are brave, God loving men, celebrating Lord Jesus Christ more than almost anyone else on Earth now. The strength and courage they show confirms their sincerity. They are fighting off attacks from the state for almost 20 years now.

Indeed Francis is a heretic, but this heterodox shaman is also a heretic. And most probably he is referring to heresy of Bergoglio as being "Pope of Rome" not thinking about him as modernist and non-Catholic. For them Saint Pius X was also a heretic, and our Holy Mother Church is the church of Antichrist. Athonites hate Roman Catholicism the most, "papism" for them is the most horrifying thing in the world. They think of us here (pre-Vatican II Traditional Catholics) as papist devils. The Greek schismatics are profoundly anti-Catholic, independently of Bergoglio's heresy. Some Athonites say that the religion of Roman Popes indeed is evil, but now things are not the same as before, because the "popes" have abandoned their dictatorial way of governing the church; now rather "bishops" together with the "pope" rule the Church. For instance, the late Arch-Shaman of Belgrade, Irenaeus, held this position that "generally no, but things are better". These are consequences of modernism in the Vatican.

The media spin has been that this is about Orthodox-Catholic tension, and Orthodox regarding Catholics as heretics. I don't know anything about this elderly priest apart from what he said as quoted, but I suspect it wasn't motivated by the mere fact that Francis is a Catholic (as if he would have leveled the same accusation at Benedict XVI or John Paul II), but at the fact that he is a liberal. This seems far more likely.

I don't know if the media spin is based on sheer ignorance of theology and the motivations of serious Christians (whether Catholic or Orthodox), or is deliberately dishonest.
