Depend on Jesus not on Fortune tellers and Horoscopes – Pope Francis

Pope Francis during his address in St Peter’s Square on Sunday after his Angelus recitation told the faithfuls of the importance of turning away from all activities of fortune-telling and horoscopes, he emphasized that Jesus alone holds the future and Jesus is the one worth turning to not fortune tellers.

“(Jesus) wants to direct his disciples of every age from curiosity abut dates, predictions, horoscopes, and concentrate their attention on the today of history," Pope Francis said.

“I would like to ask you — but don’t answer out loud; each one answer to himself — how many are there among us who read the horoscope every day? Each one answer, and when you feel like reading your horoscope, look to Jesus who is with us. This is better and will serve us better. The central nucleus around which the words of Jesus turns is he himself, the mystery of his person, and of his death and resurrection, and his return at the end of time."

“The Lord Jesus is not just a destination point of our earthly pilgrimage, but also constant presence in our lives. He counters the false profits, the fortune tellers that predict that the end of the world is near; he counters fatalism. He is at our side; he walks with us; he loves us so much." said Pope Francis.

    Joseph was a fortune-teller. See Genesis 37. All prophets are fortune-tellers in some sense. Good thing for Joseph he came before the Law:

    A man or a woman who acts as a medium or fortuneteller shall be put to death by stoning; they have no one but themselves to blame for their death. (Leviticus 20:27 NAB)

    On the other hand, people like Giordano Bruno, who foretold modern cosmology; suggesting that the stars were other suns that might have planets like earth circling them, was burned at the stake by the Church. They still haven’t apologized for murdering him.

      There are two sides to spirituality. One is of God, the other is the occult. I would suggest you discuss this in more depth with a priest, to gain full understanding.

    After the fall of man, God worked out a way to restore the heavenly kingdom that was lost to the enemy and many prophets were raised to carry on with the work and lead the people of God.They stood in the gap and God communicated to them directly.They interceded and interpreted dreams and Joseph was one of them.God spoke through them to his people.

      After what fall of man? The RCC has accepted evolution. That does away with the creation myth, two people made of dirt and ribs, talking snakes and any sort of original sin. Paul created the idea of original sin, because he believed that the Adam and Eve story was accurate. We know today that this was not the case; and the RCC accepts this. Paul was wrong. Jesus neglected to tell him about evolution in his “visions.” Besides Paul has no credibility. He said Jesus’ return was imminent, and it didn’t happen.

      “God worked out a way to restore the heavenly kingdom that was lost to the enemy….” So God lost out to the enemy? I thought He was all-powerful.

      Besides, we are starting to understand how “visions” are manifested. They are a product of the brain; the multiplexing or mixing of memories, perceptions and beliefs into the real-time stream that comes from our senses. Visions and hallucinations aren’t real, and we’re getting ever closer to proving this scientifically.

        So science is beginning to understand how visions work and that they’re hallucinations…Really?!! So how does science explain it when over 10,000 and a camera witness The miracle of the sun, Divine Mercy Hills in the Phllipines. Unfortunately I can’t seem to post the link, but it’s on YouTube and then there were the multitudes who witnessed similar in Fatima.
