Bern, Switzerland [CD EUDNews]. A rumor circulating that Pope Francis has a brother who is a member of the Seventh-day Adventist Church is not true.

Please disregard a widely distributed YouTube sermon in which Hugo Gambetta makes these claims. Church leaders from South America, who are familiar with the situation, have confirmed that Gambetta is a former Seventh-day Adventist minister and he is not a Seventh-day Adventist member as well. “In our church records we don’t have the information that a brother of Pope Francis was ever an Adventist,” affirmed Roberto Gullón, Argentinian Union Executive Secretary.

“The task of the Seventh Day Adventist Church is not to look for conspiracy, but to invite people to fix their eyes on Jesus, and announce his sure return,” affirms Bruno Vertallier, Inter-European Region President.
