Francis: Persecuted Christians are united by “blood” ecumenism

Francis:  Persecuted Christians are united by “blood” ecumenism
One of the latest heresies of Francis.  Catholics and heretics/schismatics share NO BOND
Francis FunLand: Perfect heresy for the emerging formalized One World Religion!

The article followed by TRUE Catholic teaching...
(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis said Christians are already united when they are persecuted by terrorists or world powers in what he called an ecumenism of the “blood.” He was speaking in an off-the-cuff address on Wednesday to participants at the Conference for Secretaries of the Christian World Communions, an international ecumenical organization.

The Pope began his remarks by noting that ecumenism is about journeying alongside others with Christ: it can be a simple journey together, done with prayers and helping others or it can be "a working ecumenism for the many men and women who nowadays suffer injustices, wars." He urged his listeners to show charity towards their neighbours, saying this is ecumenism, being united on our journey with Jesus.
Pope Francis also spoke about how it is necessary to recognize a particular type of ecumenism that especially applies to our present world, a so-called ecumenism of the "blood" whereby all Christians regardless of their denomination are viewed and treated in the same way by those who persecute them. 
“When terrorists or world powers persecute Christian minorities or Christians, when they do this, they don’t ask: ‘But are you Lutheran?  Are you Orthodox? Are you Catholic? Are you a Reformed Christian? Are you a Pentecostal?’  No! ‘You are a Christian!’ They only recognize one of them: the Christian. The enemy never makes a mistake and knows very well how to recognize where Jesus is. This is ecumenism of the blood.”
The Pope said Coptic Orthodox friars murdered on the beaches of Libya are "our brothers" as they too gave witness to Jesus in their lives and when they met their death.

Antipope Francis vs St. Athanasius:
"But what is also to the point, let us note that the very tradition, teaching and faith of the Catholic Church from the beginning, which the Lord gave, was preached by the Apostles, and was preserved by the Fathers. On this was the Church founded; and if anyone departs from this, he neither is nor any longer ought to be called a Christian

Heretics or schismatics, being placed outside the Church and cut off from unity and charity, even though one should be slain for the name of Christ, he could not be crowned in death.
- St. Cyprian

There are also some among the heretics who ... flatter themselves with claims of martyrdom ... But not all who submit their bodies to suffering, even to flames, are to be considered as having as having shed their blood for their sheep; rather, they may have shed it against the salvation of their sheep, for the Apostle says: "If I should deliver my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profits me nothing" (1 Corinthians 13:3). And how can he have the faintest charity in him who, though shown to be at fault, yet has no love for that unity which the Lord chose to recommend? Indeed, so long as you remain outside the Church and severed from the fabric of unity and bond of charity, you will be punished with everlasting chastisement, even if you were burned alive for the sake of Christ.
- St. Augustine

Baptism of Blood cannot profit a heretic unto salvation because there is no salvation outside the Church.
- St. Cyprian

Outside the Church no one can be a martyr.
- St. Pacian

It is not the torture, but the cause which makes the martyr.
- St. Augustine

We should not forget that the devil has his martyrs, and that he infuses into them a false constancy. It is not the punishment, but the cause, that makes the martyr; that is: the confession of the true faith.
- St. Alphonsus Maria Liguori

Grant that the heretic suffered somewhat; nevertheless, he was not put to death. And even if he had been put to death he would not have been crowned because of it. Why? Because he was out of the peace of the Church, outside concord, outside that Mother of whom he ought to be a part.
- St. Pacian

Even if one should shed his blood for Christ, he cannot be saved unless he has remained inside the Catholic Church.
- St. Fulgentius

True martyrs are found only in the Catholic Church; for, since there is but one true faith, there is but one true martyrdom.
- St. Irenaeus of Lyons

Nay, though they should suffer death for the confession of the Name, the guilt of such men is not removed even by their blood, for not even blood can wash away the stain of heresy. Baptism of Fire does not help such a person if he dies outside the Church, for the grievous and irremissible sin of schism is not purged away even by martyrdom. No martyr can he be who is not in the Church. If he be outside the Church when put to death, he cannot come to the rewards prepared for the Church. Though they be cast into the fire and burnt in the flames, though they be exposed to wild beasts and lay down their lives, this will not win them the crown of glory, but will be the penalty for their unfaithfulness; it will not be the glorious consummation of holy valor, but an end to their recklessness. Such a man may be put to death, crowned he cannot be.
- St. Cyprian
