Debt Forgiveness? | Pope Francis' Holy Year of Mercy could be a truly great jubilee

For all the updates regarding this people's action for freedom, click here.

The Pope recently announced that a year of Jubilee will begin in december. Some are claiming that it will be an event of world wide debt forgiveness. Although the Pope has not explicitly stated this, from what I could find, there is a historical precedence for the idea. 

The Pope may not seem like he has any power to enforce such a proclamation, but as we discussed in the post Pope 'Ruler of the World' to go after War Criminals, all corporate bodies are tied to the Vatican through Incorporation. Governments all over the world are incorporated and registered under in UCC System in Washington DC. The governments then create corporate fictions of all sorts, even of the people themselves, under the incorporated charter held under Vatican control. 

The Vatican placed a claim on all the living creatures of the earth, that they are superior, and we are inferior, and as such they have the authority of god on earth. As our owners, they claim to own our bodies, minds and souls and was codified in the Papal Bulls or Unam Sanctum and Cestui Que Trusts

Corporations, Not Free Nation States

For the United States, the incorporation of the government occurred with the Act of 1871. Other nations have incorporated charters or constitutions, that have not been ratified by the people. They are of the people, not for the people, which is no small distinction. 

Therefore, within the corporate control system, the Pope is essentially the CEO of Earth, inc. And while it may seem wonderful to hear that a debt Jubilee could be on its way, reviewing history tells us blind faith is never a good idea. 

It is certainly possible that the system will correct itself without our intervention, but given the fact that our would-be masters rely on our ignorance and incompetence to stay in power, we can safeguard against the risk of another form of slavery by learning what it is. Our relationship to government is that of a trust, we grant them power over us by our implied consent or inaction; How the Cabal Maintains Their Power And What You Need To Do To Stop It - Un-Consent.

ALL Authority Is Illusory

There is no such thing as god given authority, or any other form of true authority. All governments the world over, which claim to be the masters of their people, do so via deception and coercion. Even within the Vatican's own documents, it states that when the people come of age, and learn of their true power, their need to act as intermediary will end - paraphrasing. It also says 'let he who would be duped, be duped,' meaning within their eyes, they are teaching us a lesson and until we learn to stop be duped they will keep trying to trick us.

Judge Anna Von Reitz issued a Notice and Public Order on April 3rd 2015 to notify the powers that be of their breach of trust and subsequent update stating that the whole world is capable of doing the same. Since the government's gain consent by our inaction, our participation in global change is essential. 

Personally, I think it will be a mix of the two. The awakening has been gaining in momentum for years, with some having acquired a great deal of knowledge and others just beginning their experience. Each of us who has been studying and doing the inner work is now a valuable asset and can help continue the process of truth dissemination. 

If we do the work well enough, the Pope, who is the trustee for god and gods people will have no choice to but honor the will of the people. And for the record, we don't need the Pope to forgive debt that was ill gotten in the first place. He is just a man, and we are all human, we all have the divine spark within us, and our inalienable rights can only be taken away from us if choose.

When the hated and feared Pope Boniface VIII proclaimed the first-ever holy year, or jubilee, for the city of Rome back in 1300, he began a tradition that has often been marked by controversy.
He and many of his successors used these special occasions to draw large numbers of pilgrims (and their money) from all over the world to the Eternal City. The goal and effect were often the same -- to boost the pope's power and popularity and to enhance the church's finances. In the late Middle Ages, abuses such as the sale of indulgences further sullied the more noble purpose for which the popes professed to hold these yearlong celebrations.

During the jubilee of 1600, a villainous Dominican priest named Giordano Bruno was even burned at the stake in Rome's Campo de Fiori, one of more than 30 heretics executed during the reign of Pope Clement VIII.
Some historians claim that an unhealthy modern-day fixation with the papacy ("papolatry") is still one of lasting effects from the holy year of 1950, which came immediately in the aftermath of World War II and in an age of increasing air travel and mass communications. Instead of coming to Rome to visit the tombs of the apostles and saints, the millions of pilgrims flocked primarily to ornate ceremonies led by Pope Pius XII, the man known mythically as the "Pastor Angelicus."
They did so in even larger numbers and with yet more feverish intensity during the two jubilees that John Paul II led in 1983 and 2000. The sainted Polish pope was an especially iconic focus during the holy year at the start of the third millennium. Despite debilitating effects of Parkinson's disease, he presided over numerous large ceremonious week after week at the Vatican.
Several years before the Great Jubilee of 2000 even started, Vatican officials and Rome's business and political leaders had already begun making elaborate and costly preparations for the big event.
Churches and city buildings were scrubbed clean of decades of black auto exhaust. Convents and religious houses were transformed into pilgrim hotels. Tax incentives were offered to merchants, spurring the renovation of restaurants, coffee shops and other establishments. New roads, a refurbished train station and other construction projects were projected.
The wife of Rome's mayor even started a lucrative parallel public transport system especially for pilgrims. And when it was all over, the man that organized Jubilaeum 2000 with such pharaonic skill and flourish, then-Archbishop Crescenzio Sepe, ended up becoming a cardinal -- even before he was appointed to a new Vatican position!
The holy year that was designed to carry the church into the 21st century and the third Christian millennium had about everyone in Catholic officialdom, and in Rome's tourist industry, hailing it as a whopping success.
But the Great Jubilee of 2000 was really not all that great. At least, not as great as it could and should have been, especially when there was so much talk of mercy and reconciliation but very little action regarding the original Old Testament purpose of holding jubilee years -- to rest the land, forgive debts and free the slaves.
Although special plenary indulgences were extended to pilgrims, as in keeping with church custom, the offer was too parsimonious for such a highly acclaimed and great jubilee. If John Paul II's intuition was to usher in an era of mercy and forgiveness, he lacked the physical and mental energy as well as the necessary support of his closest aides to do so with any real creativity or boldness.
For example, the Vatican could have facilitated easier and more widespread dispensations, annulments or sanations for so many Catholics in irregular marriages.
It could have been more generous and merciful toward the tens of thousands of nonfunctioning, married priests -- and, in turn, toward Catholics communities in need of priests -- by allowing those who desired to resume their ministry in some new way to do so.
How many other debts -- spiritual, moral, financial -- were not forgiven during the Great Jubilee?
Pope Francis has a chance to make that right. And the timing of his announcement for this new Holy Year of Mercy suggests that it's exactly what he intends to do. The holy year does not officially begin for another nine months, which is not enough time to initiate a "new works" program to accommodate (and profit from) the millions of pilgrims that the yearlong celebration is expected to attract.
But seven months -- which is exactly how long before the Synod of Bishops holds its next session on the family -- is plenty of time for the just-announced and high-profile jubilee to add momentum to proposals for a merciful approach toward people in difficult marriage and family situations. That Francis supports such proposals should be clear to anyone that has read his apostolic exhortation, Evangelii Gaudium, or his official interviews.
The Jesuit pope has involved all Catholics, and not just the bishops, in these discussions from the very beginning. He did so when he instructed the prelates to survey their people before last year's synod gathering to gauge their concerns and beliefs regarding family, marriage and human sexuality. But it is obvious that some of these bishops are not really listening with a sympathetic ear or a merciful heart. Announcing plans for the Holy Year at this time is Francis' latest effort to get them to do so.
As he wrote in Evangelii Gaudium:
"The Church must be a place of mercy freely given, where everyone can feel welcomed, loved, forgiven and encouraged to live the good life of the Gospel."
