And I saw a beast coming up out of the sea...

H/T Roy 'Get out of the water!' Schneider

Analogous to the precarious situation of Holy Mother Church?

Warning: Graphic scenes of shark-related horror are in the video above.

Heresy is like a great white shark in the water, seeking to devour the truth and with it the children of Mary and Jesus, encouraging people to embrace falsehood!

Lord, grant that Your Church may enjoy true liberty and exaltation,
and that the shark of heresy may be kept at bay, or speared and then blown up!

One of the best lines in a movie ever.

This is how to deal with heresy when it seeks to devour the barque! Go, Schneider, go!

p.s. what is a pope? what is a catholic? is a pope always catholic? Francis recently said, 'inside every Christian is a Jew.' would that be jews who deny the Son of God, and in so doing deny the God the Father? or would that be a Jew who is a Christian and therefore no longer 'Jew or Greek?' probably neither, because for Francis nothing is true and therefore anything can be said and done against the faith with 'impunity', because, after all, when was a shark ever concerned about God.
