The Vicar of Christ. [Walter F Murphy] -- What makes this book extraordinary is that it proves itself by paradox -- reconciling and weaving together strong, seemingly incompatible elements into a cohesive, memorable work quite unlike any.

The Holy Fathers have always paid a price for power on earth. The problems of the. The counterfeit nature of the Pope s claim to be the Vicar of Christ is shown by his doctrine and deeds. The key role of the True Vicar of Christ is to glorify Christ, He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

The sending of the Spirit was the glorifying of Christ. God the Father glorifies Christ Jesus in heaven, and the Spirit glorifies Him on earth. The Bible says nothing about anyone functioning as the “Vicar of Christ.” The phrase does not appear in the New Testament.

Neither the Apostle Peter nor any other apostle was or ever became the Vicar of Christ. By the way, the title is also used by Cardinal Henry Edward Manning in his book, The Temporal Power of the Vicar of Jesus Christ, which he wrote in the year The Number of the Beast Actually, at his time none of the nations of Europe wanted anything to.

Vicarius Christi), a title of the pope implying his supreme and universal primacy, both of honor and of. And then finally, under the legend, we read: Historic titles, we have Vicar of Jesus Christ, etc.

Perhaps it’s just me, but this struck me as odd. I don’t know; the old formula seemed more proper to me. It said the most important thing for the Catholic Church right away, at the top: that there is a Vicar of Jesus Christ on earth, someone to. The Pope who presides in Peter’s Chair is the Vicar of Christ on earth, because Christ gave Peter alone and personally the Keys to the Kingdom of heaven on earth.

Paul and the other apostles united to Peter speak and teach as one Vicar of Christ on earth, this unity has the power of the divine keys to bind and loose on the whole earth.

The second recorded use of the term "Vicar of Christ" is found in the epistles of Tertullian in the 3rd century, with a different theological slant to refer to the Holy Spirit, that is, as Christ is not physically performing miracles in the Church, Holy Spirit acts as his Vicar on his behalf, performing miracles and preventing the Church err.

After a conclave is hopelessly deadlocked trying to elect a Pope, the Church summons this extraordinary man to become Pope, the Vicar of Christ.
