Pope Francis Trip to Bolivia

On July 8, 2015, Bolivia’s Marxist Evo Morales gave Pope Francis a cross with a hammer and a sickle with the image of Christ. Pope Francis should have rejected immediately this monstrous cross, but he did not. This sacrilegious cross was designed by Father Luis Espinal, a Jesuit communist, who was assassinated in 1980 in Bolivia for his activities in that nation.

El bochornoso aprovechamiento de la visita papal a Bolivia, una estrategia revolucionaria

Pope Francis visited Ecuador, Bolivia, both nations that are governed by Marxist presidents, and

Paraguay. The trip began on July 5, 2015, from Rome. Pope Francis gave 22 speeches, many of them as it is his custom, attacking capitalism, free market economy, private property, and praising socialism. It is very sad that the Vatican has been completely infiltrated by communists and by those who are part of a New World Order.

Destaque International wrote an article entitled “Bolivia: Francis, and the Hammer and Sickle” which was published on the website Tradition, Family and Property on July 25, 2015. The article explained that it is very hard to understand how Pope Francis surrounds himself with revolutionary Marxists leaders, assumes their ideas are valid, and gives them unconditional support. It is also hard to understand how Pope Francis continues to attack private property, free enterprise, capitalism, free market economics which have been a source of social progress and poverty reduction around the world.

This writer invaded Cuba at the age of 17 at the Bay of Pigs in 1961 in an effort to eradicate communism from his native country. He served two years in prison together with his brother, many cousins, and friends. He is a practicing Catholic who has members of his family who are priests and nuns. He is even related to Cuba’s first cardinal Manuel Arteaga who was appointed in 1945 and died in 1963. This writer is shocked and cannot believe the speeches and encyclicals written by Pope Francis and his praise for socialism which is the system that creates poverty.

Cardenal Manuel Arteaga was Cuba’s first cardenal and unlike the current Cardenal Ortega Alamino, he was an anti-communist.

Pope Francis praises communism and socialism, which are political and economic systems that increase poverty, class struggle, and social conflict. Communist leaders have killed and incarcerated millions of people around the world. Pope Francis attended the Second World Meeting of Popular Movements organized by Latin American Communists. They met in the city of Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia.

João Pedro Stédile of Brazil’s Landless Workers Movement (MST), one of the organizers of the Second World Meeting of Popular Movements, speaking during the event stated the following: “Chavez died. Fidel is sick. Francis has taken up that leadership role and is doing everything right.”

Pope Francis’s speech attacked capitalism, private property, and free market economics in the Second World Meeting of Popular Movements attended by communists in the city of Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia.

Among those communist leaders, in addition to Bolivia’s President Evo Morales, whose jacket bore a large picture of blood-thirsty “Che” Guevara, was Argentine Trotskyite Juan Grabois, specialized in promoting urban agitation on the outskirts of Buenos Aires, head of the Confederation of Workers of the Popular Economy, and member of the organizing committee of the Second World Meeting of Popular Movements. The article pointed out that on July 9, 2015, Pope Francis delivered a long and impassioned speech against capitalism and private property to cheering Marxist revolutionary leaders and followers of liberation theology. The Argentinian Pope presided the meeting sitting next to Bolivia’s communist president Evo Morales, who came with a coat that had the image of the bloody murderer Che Guevara.

Pope Francis told the atheist Communists in the audience that they shared the same faith. What faith was the successor of St. Peter was referring? Pope Francis said Nuestra fe es revolucionaria” (Our faith is revolutionary) and “that is why I keep all of you in my heart.” There’s no question that those who were in the audience and those that were not present are going to interpret the Holy Father’s speech as one supporting communism in Latin America and throughout the world.


Communist president Evo Morales appeared with a coat that had the image of Che Guevara, who shot over 2,000 patriotic Cubans in 1959. Before they were shot on the wall they shouted “Long Live Christ the King.”

The article pointed out that in the speech, Pope Francis “placed the goals of their socioeconomic revolution together with those of his own ecological revolution.” The papal speech and the recent encyclical letter Laudato Si “suffer from a significant and worrisome scientific gap which, with all due respect, affects a fundamental premise of both documents.” It is unfortunately that Pope Francis has defended by the most radical ideas of environmentalists, which falsely say that human activity and not natural cycles are the main culprits for current climate changes. This thesis is not unanimously supported in the most respected scientific circles and has been challenged by high-level academic work.

The article stated that it is not known on what specific scientific studies and ecological experts Pope Francis based his encyclical letter Laudato Si since the bibliography cites no document in this regard. It is also important to remember that, on April 27, 2015, over 100 environmental scientists sent Francis a letter “imploring him not to allow himself to be misled by the arguments of radical environmentalists and by analyses which have not been demonstrated by environmental science.” The letter pointed out that, under the pretext of helping the poor, radical environmentalists are actually contributing with their proposals to increase poverty and misery around the world. These same communist leaders had already received words of praise from Pope Francis when the First World Meeting of Popular Movements was held at the Vatican in October 2014. Pope Francis support for the Marxist liberation theology was opposed to the Catholic social doctrine taught by many previous popes, including Saint John Paul II and Benedict XVI.

Encuentro Mundial de Movimientos Populares “Madre Tierra, Techo, Trabajo, Integración de los Pueblos” (Meeting of Popular Movements: Mother Earth, Roof, Work, and Integration of Peoples).

The Marxist Argentinian Pope accepted the Orden de Cóndor (Condor decoration), the highest decoration given in Bolivia that has a hammer and a sickle, from the communist president Evo Morales.

The article pointed out that earlier in La Paz, the capital of Bolivia, President Evo Morales had given Pope Francis, the Andean Condor decoration, a blasphemous medal similar to the cross made by communist priest Luis Espinal.  Even worse, were Pope Francis’s statements that these awards were “symbols of affection and closeness” and he received them from President Evo Morales with “cordial and generous affection.”


Most Catholics in the United States and around the world are not aware that the Vatican has been infiltrated by communists. However, in spite of the cover-up of bishops in the United States and other countries of the world, the truth will eventually come to light. Pope Francis will create a split in the Catholic Church among the anti-Communist pro free market economics Catholics. We should all pray to God that the communists are expelled from the Holy See!
