There is one major fallacy that concerns Christians: false public interpretations of Biblical prophecy.
"Lucifer, the Light-bearer!
Strange and mysterious name to give to the Spirit of Darkness!
Lucifer, the Son of the Morning!
Is it he who bears the Light, and with its splendors intolerable, blinds feeble, sensual, or selfish souls?
Doubt it not!"
- Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, p. 321, 19th Degree of Grand Pontiff.
USAGE: Judeo-Christian Legend
PRONOUNCED: LOO-sə-fər (English) [key]
Meaning & History
Means "bringing light", derived from Latin lux "light" and ferre "to bring".
In 1663, the property that would become the Capitol's site was inscribed in the Maryland property records as “Rome,” its owner a man named Francis Pope. The southern boundary of this property was shaped by Tiber Creek named for the river that runs through Rome, Italy, the Tiber.
The community was part of the ten mile square tract of land which would become the American capital Washington, D.C., and its owner, Daniel Carroll, transferred the community to the federal government after the amendment to the United States Constitution sanctioning the building of the new United States capital city was ratified.
Daniel Carroll was the chairman of a three-man commission appointed by President George Washington to find a suitable location for the capital city. A signer of the Declaration of Independence, Daniel Carroll was a Roman Catholic educated by Jesuits in Maryland and France. His brother John Carroll became the first Catholic bishop in America, presiding over the See of Baltimore, which included Washington, D.C. John Carroll also founded Georgetown University.
a Vatican official called the Master of Ceremonies offered to the new Pope the traditional papal red cape trimmed with ermine...
"No thank you, Monsignore," Pope Francis is reported to have replied. "You put it on instead. Carnival time is over!"
It is worth remembering that it was a previous "Black Pope", Father Hans Kolvenbach, who first broke the tradition that the general of the Jesuits, just like the Pope, was a lifelong appointment. He stepped down in 2008 when he reached the age of 80, suggesting a new precedent that "White Popes" might also like to follow.

"How I would like a poor Church for the poor!" said the Argentinian with the common touch, the first pope from Latin America and the first non-European pontiff in nearly 1,300 years.

It does seem however, that Jesuits are extremely fond of Lucifer, no?

Lucifer is not the proper name of the devil, but denotes only the state from which he has fallen.
Adding to that, this does not seem to pertain to any one entity.
This is easily verified with google so there is no real debate on that.
"Himmler and his SS verified it, so there's no real debate in that!"
Father Currie was asked to get the Vatican to help in the release 7000 trillion yen that are sitting frozen in the Vatican bank accounts in the Bank of Japan.
He was told that Catholic charities could distribute those funds in proportion to the amount of Catholics in the world. That would have meant 10 million yen each (about $120,000) for every Catholic man, woman and child on earth.
