An Open Letter to Pope Francis


An Open Letter to Pope Francis


His Holiness, Pope Francis
Vatican City
January, 2016

Dear Holy Father

I am a Jew. I have the assurance, as did Menachem Mendel Schneerson of Crown Heights, Brooklyn, of direct descent from King David on my father’s side (my mother, I was assured was descended of Hillel).

I am 74-years-old. I converted to the Roman Catholic Church at the age of 17 in the last year of the pontificate of Pope Pius XII. I did so because I was under the conviction that I had to accept and have faith that Jesus Christ was my savior, and I believed it. And I believed that I had to be a baptized member of his Church to have a chance of salvation. So I converted and was baptized in the Catholic Church, and then I was confirmed.

Over the years I have contributed tens of thousands of dollars to both Peters’ Pence (the pope’s own treasury about which you of course must be very familiar), and my local parish and diocese.

During that time I attended thousands of Masses, hundreds of holy hours and novenas, said thousands of rosaries, and made hundreds of trips to the Confessional.

Now in 2015 and 2016 I have read your words and those of your “Pontifical Commission.” You now teach that because I am a racial Jew, God’s covenant with me was never broken, and cannot be broken. You don’t qualify that teaching by specifying anything I might do that would threaten the Covenant, which you say God has with me because I am a Jew. You teach that it’s an unbreakable Covenant. You don’t even say that it depends on me being a good person. Logically speaking, if God’s Covenant with me is unbreakable, then a racial Jew such as I am can do anything he wants and God will still maintain a Covenant with me and I will go to heaven.

Your Pontifical Commission wrote last December, “The Catholic Church neither conducts nor supports any specific institutional mission work directed towards Jews…it does not in any way follow that the Jews are excluded from God’s salvation because they do not believe in Jesus Christ as the Messiah of Israel and the Son of God.” 

You are the Pontiff. I believe what your Commission teaches under your banner and in your name, and what you declared during your visit to the synagogue in January. As a result, I no longer see any point in getting up every Sunday morning to go to Mass, say rosaries, or attend the Rite of Reconciliation on Saturday afternoon. All of those acts are superfluous for me. Predicated on your teaching, I now know that due to my special racial superiority in God’s eyes, I don’t need any of it.

I don’t see any reason now as to why I was baptized in 1958. There was no need for me to be baptized. I no longer see why there was a need for Jesus to come to earth either, or preach to the Jewish children of Abraham of his day. As you state, they were already saved as a result of their racial descent from the Biblical patriarchs. What would they need him for?

In light of what you and your Pontifical Commission have taught me, it appears that the New Testament is a fraud, at least as it applies to Jews. All of those preachings and disputations to the Jews were for no purpose. Jesus had to know this, yet he persisted in causing a lot of trouble for the Jews by insisting they had to be born again, they had to believe he was their Messiah, they had to stop following their traditions of men, and that they couldn’t get to heaven unless they believed that he was the Son of God.

Your holiness, you and your Commission have instructed me in the true path to my salvation: my race. It’s all I need and all I have ever needed. God has a covenant with my genes. It’s my genes that save me. My eyes are open now.

Consequently, you will be hearing from my lawyer. I am filing suit against the papacy and the Roman Catholic Church. I want my money back, with interest, and I am seeking compensatory and punitive damages for the psychological harm your Church caused me, by making me think I needed something besides my own exalted racial identity, in order to go to heaven after I die. 

I am litigating as well over the time that I wasted that I could have spent working in my business, instead of squandering it worshipping a Jesus that your Church now says I don’t need to believe in for my salvation. Your prelates and clerics told me something very different in 1958. I’ve been robbed!

Sincerely,
Pinchus Feinstein
2617646 Ocean View Ave.
Miami Beach, Florida 33239

P.S. I'm transmitting this letter to Hoffman, an ex-AP reporter from New York, in the expectation that he will bring it to the attention of those who should know about it. I am transmitting it to him in the form of a dream, but nevertheless, it represents the feelings of many victims of your robber Church.Pinch

Fantastic article. It's hard to imagine anything more virilently anti-Catholic than the post V2 "Catholic" teaching on relations with the elder brothers. God save us all, Catholics and non-Catholics alike, from the false anti-church of bergoglio which "shuts the kingdom of heaven before men. For you yourselves do not enter in, and those who are going in you suffer not to enter."

Whose birthday is it today? Looking forward to reading an article similar to this one, even if written by a Roman Catholic. Why you are still a Roman Catholic boggles the mind! :)

If I didn't know any better, Pope Francis would make Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI seem like Pope St. Pius V.

My first thought upon reading the Document was that my best option would be to reject Jesus Christ and convert to Judaism. Being a poor sinner in need of frequent confession I thought why take a chance in this fallen world? But then I read the fine print at the top of the Document and saw that it was not Doctrinal nor was it Dogmatic. So in essence, what is really happening is that people who share Mr. Feinstein's superior DNA are being told by the Church, who has the Divine Commission to Baptize all Nations in the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, that they can all go to Hell. All under the guise of charity and love of neighbor. So maybe the Jews were right all along. Maybe the Church is Anti-Semitic. They were just hundreds, if not thousands, years ahead of everyone else.

"As a result, I no longer see any point in getting up every Sunday morning to go to Mass, say rosaries, or attend the Rite of Reconciliation on Saturday afternoon. "

If you think the only point in following Christ is so you, personally, get to go to heaven, then you've completely misunderstood Catholicism, I doubt you've ever read the Church Fathers and you would probably be better off as an Evangelical, where "Me Getting Saved" is the only reason to follow God.

It's VERY shallow, though. It will probably result in a long stay in purgatory, since it's all about the Self, and FAR short of Beatific Vision.

Iggy,

I don't believe "the only" point in following Christ is my personal salvation. Nevertheless, it is a very important point, at least for me.

I feel silly pointing out the obvious to these bloggers, but HEY, Mr Feinstein's letter is a tongue in cheek letter folks. Pope Francis put forward into the public what can kindly be described as a poorly thought out statement which requires an immediate retraction, if his Holiness's ego can stomach it. The repercussion of his missive is surely on the way. Mr Feinstein is sarcastically signalling what George Carlin would term his "two minute warning"!

An excellent letter. Let's all wake up and smell the APOSTASY! This is not just poorly worded. It is heresy and the logical consequence of Nostra Aetate. Don't forget either that Herr Ratzinger taught the same thing. The last six men who have usurped the Chair of St. Peter have been antipopes and antichrist. All their acts have been null and void. Non habemus papam.

As a convert Jew myself, I should call Pinchus and find out some ways to spend all the extra time and money Pope Francis has made available to us. And we can have a pretty good laugh at all those who are genetically challenged! So that's why they call 'em Gentiles.

Michael Hirsh, attorney, father, convert.
