Is Pope Francis the last pope?  To understand this we need a little background.  The word pope comes from papa, a term that means father, and it was use by the early bishops of the ancient city of Rome. This, however, is not what we mean when we ask is Pope Francis the last pope.

What we mean is the definition of the papacy as canonized in “The Eternal Pastor”, the Apostolic Constitution of the Church promulgated on July 18, 1870 by the First Vatican Council in Rome.  This document defined the pope as the Vicar of Christ, the head of ALL Government, the judge from whom there is no appeal, the ordinary of all churches, and Infallible when defining matters of faith and morals.  This is the definition of the Pope we are referring to when we ask about Pope Francis.

Pope Benedictus XVI took three actions which rejected the decree “The Eternal Pastor”. First, he agreed that the European Union Criminal Court of Justice in Luxemburg would have jurisdiction over the Vatican.  This violates the provision that the pope is above ALL Government.  Second, he declared that bishops are not his employees.  This violated the provision that he was the “ordinary” (true bishop) of every diocese in the world.  Third, he abdicated his thrown.  As the Vicar of Christ the pope just can not say he doesn’t want to be Christ’s Vicar anymore than Christ can get down off the Cross.  These three actions on his part renounced and rejected the decrees of the first Vatican Council of 1870. As such, there are no more popes only “Bishops of Rome” that are called “pope”.

Now, Pope Francis I is just presiding over the final demise of the church.  You see, he is now attempting to amalgamate the catholic faith with non – Christian religion. Why? Simply because the “money lenders” have taken control and want a one world religion to bolster a one world government. So, yes, Pope Francis is the last pope.
