How Benedict has defeated “Francis”

Or, Why did Pope Benedict XVI do what he did on Feb. 11, 2013?

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

Pope Benedict XVI, who has been lauded by many as a brilliant theologian, is in my opinion, a more brilliant chess player, for he has defeated the AntiChurch with the most incredibly subtle and effective manuever which could ever be conceived, and which takes a great deal of study to recognize, if you, like myself, took at face value the hearsay which has been put out for the last six years.

Admittedly, the honor and glory for it belong first of all to God, Who enlightens all men and inspires them at times to do things mere mortals could never conceive of. But also, thanks goes to God for sending Our Lady to Fatima to reveal to Sr. Lucia a secret which has until this day remained hidden, so as to give sound counsel to the true Successor of Saint Peter in the End Times.

How Pope John Paul II strengthened the Bulwark of the Church against the AntiChurch

I believe that with that knowledge, Pope John Paul II did 3 things: first, he chose Joseph Ratzinger to come to Rome and prepared him to succeed him (perhaps because he sensed that Ratzinger had the gift of prophecy); second, in 1983, he added the term munus to canon 332 §2, to constrain all of his successors to the obligation of renouncing the Petrine Munus so as to resign the papacy; and third, in 1996, he promulgated a new law on Papal Elections, which would nullify any attempt of the AntiChurch to usurp the Papacy or elect successors to AntiPopes (by requiring that all valid conclaves meet within 20 days after the death of valid popes).

Pope John Paul II warned the Church of the AntiChurch which was rising. He beatified Ann Catherine Emmerich (on the Vigil of St. Francis of Assisi, in 2004) to give papal approval to her own visions in this regard. It should not be surprising then, that in secret, or I should say, in the bright light of day, in papal acts he prepared the Church against that Evil to come!

By these three acts, Pope John Paul II set the chess board and enabled his chosen successor, Ratzinger to enact a stratagem of deception to defeat the forces of darkness.

The Forces of the AntiChurch struck quickly

No sooner than Pope John Paul II had died that the St Gallen Mafia, which had been meeting in that Swiss town for some years, mobilized to put Bergoglio on the Apostolic Throne in the Conclave of 2005. Bergoglio, as is now known, garnered the most votes after Ratzinger. In his campaign to get elected he promised radical financial reforms in the Vatican, so he could pose as a savior and reformer, though his agenda was that of Cardinal Martini, to make the Church into the Bride of the Anti-Christ.

Recently an Argentine Priest revealed, that Pope Benedict, soon after his election in 2005, had asked Bergoglio to be Secretary of State (see report here). Benedict intended by this offer to diffuse the conflict which arose in the Conclave, and to draw out the real intentions of Bergoglio. Bergoglio’s refusal manifested his deceit, because all the reasons given in the Conclave for his election, which in truth could be done by a Secretary of State, if honest, would have spurred him to accept Benedict’s offer. But without the papal authority, his evil and malign agenda could not be advanced. — By this sign of offering the olive branch of peace, Benedict signaled to his own supporters, that after himself there would come an Anti-pope (cf. Prophecy of St Malachy).

With the threefold knowledge of the future had from the Third Secret, from Pope John Paul II and from his own experience in the CDF, Pope Benedict now knew what he had to do. He knew Bergoglio wanted power and would be blinded by its offer. He took preparations to defend the Church with tradition and as the pressure built from the St Gallen Mafia, he crafted their defeat in secret. At the same time, he openly warned the faithful, that the Message of Fatima was about to be fulfilled (On May 13, 2010, saying “We would be mistaken to think that Fatima’s prophetic mission is complete…”).

Benedict knew that removing the Lavender Mafia from the Vatican was key to defending the Church. But as court documents revealed, in the WikiLeaks controversy, as that effort led to the destruction of the careers of many sodomites, they moved against Benedict to have him removed. His Pontificate had removed hundreds perverts from the clergy.

As I have written before, there was in my estimation a formal attempt at a Coup d’etat (see report here). And this was actually put in motion, with the intent to effectively imprison Pope Benedict (see Report here). — The Conclave pact in 2005 among the warring factions of Ratzinger (Church) and Bergoglio (Anti-Church) also prepared the way (see report here). But, with their cause lost at that conclave, the St. Gallen Mafia would have to wait for Benedict to resign, because being old, he revealed that he was inclined to resign in a few years, anyhow. As he lingered on, however, their rage and impatience exploded.

The restoration of the Ancient Mass (July 7, 2007) and the expansion of the permissions for its use (April 30, 2011) caused a general outburst among the wicked clerics. I myself know this took place in the Italian Bishop’s Conference in 2011, because a Bishop who attended told me how Cardinals and Bishops stood up, one after another, and said the most vile things against Benedict. I also know personally, from the testimony of a Sicilian Businessman, who was in Shanghai, that the Cardinal of Palermo had warned that Benedict could die within a year from poor health. The St Gallen Controlled Media expanded this and reported it as if the Cardinal has said that Benedict had a year to live or else. That report was published around Feb. 11, 2012! (note the date)

Benedict’s Master Stroke

Pope Benedict XVI then played his master stroke. In the Summer of 2012 he indicated to Cardinal Bertone that he was going to resign. He discussed the matter with no one but his secretary Ganswein and a few others. I believe that he wrote the text of abdication in the Fall of 2012. I also postulate that he intentionally showed the Latin text (the invalid one) and a faulty German translation (which makes it appear the Latin is a valid formula) to members of the St Gallen Mafia, to obtain their consent to it. By that act he sealed their doom.

Because only one who was fluent in Latin and knowledgeable about Canon Law and who accepted the traditional metaphysics of the Church would be able to see that the resignation by that formula would be invalid. Ratzinger further prepared the ground by emphasizing for years before, that his favorite theologian was Saint Bonaventure. This caused scholars, like myself, to start studying St. Bonanveture’s Scholatic method for textual analysis of the signification of expressions, which is unparalleled among all the Doctors of the Church.

On Feb. 11, 2013, he read out-loud in Consistory the text of the invalid formula. On Feb. 28, 2013 he explained that he had resigned the “active ministry”. The St. Gallen Mafia spread the word of a valid resignation. The rest is history.

The only thing is, that Benedict began to give signs of the truth, not only for the sake of the Faithful, but to annoy the St Gallen Mafia. He kept wearing the papal cassock, retained the titles of Your Holiness and signed with PP. Benedictus XVI, and continued to give the papal blessing. He did these things to get faithful Catholics to examine the text of resignation and discover it was invalid. — He did this also, because, I believe, he was obeying Our Lady’s word at Fatima, in which She had revealed that there would come a time in which the Catholic world thought there were 2 popes, but only one of which was the true pope. The one who was the true Pope would continue to wear white, the other would usurp the office; and that the Anti-Church would attack the true Pope and the faithful gathered about him.

By an invalid resignation Pope Benedict has canonically invalidated everything Bergoglio has done, can do, and can ever do! Bergoglio is now an AntiPope because of the clever trick Benedict played on him. And Bergoglio is so entangled by this stratagem of Benedict that he cannot admit its existence, because if he does, he must give up his claim to the papacy.

If Benedict should die, then there will be no valid Successor of Saint Peter unless the pre-Bergoglian Cardinals meet in conclave within 20 days. Otherwise, as Pope John Paul II declares in the promulgation of Universi Dominici Gregis, at the end of the text, any action the Cardinal Electors take will be invalid. If they fail to do this, the Church will not be bereft of a pope, because, as Pope John Paul II taught in UDG’s prologue, the institution of the College is “not necessary for a valid election” of the Roman Pontiff: there is still the ancient Apostolic Law regarding the right of the Roman Church to elect the Pope.*

Benedict has defeated “Francis”!


Note: I wish to publicly apologize to His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI for anything I have said in criticism of him, since it was not until today that I understood what he had did and why he had done it, nor that as Pope he was acting for the good of the Church in the best and only way he could see to do, acting on the  basis of the counsels of Our Lady and Pope John Paul II. — Finally, I entertain the possibility that some Cardinals know of this grand stratagem of Benedict and that is why they act so dumb when asked about the question of validity or invalidity of the resignation.


* The right of election will fall to those Catholics of the Diocese Rome, who recognize that Benedict always was the only true pope, and that Bergoglio was always and is only, and nothing more, an Antipope. See my Disputed Question on Defecting Cardinals, here.

With Globalist Censorship growing daily, No one will ever know about the above article, if you do not share it.

  1. This is extremely encouraging and makes perfect sense – much more so than any other explanation of the events in the Vatican in the past six years and beyond.

    One question. You write: “…Our Lady’s word at Fatima, in which She had revealed that there would come a time in which the Catholic world thought there were 2 popes…”

    I can’t find anything on this in relation to Fatima (but I’m aware that other Catholic prophesies have made this claim, or similar ones). Could you please provide some details? Thank you.

  2. As of Sept 12, 2019, I have annotated the text of this article with a good number of links to supporting reports or documents at the Vatican, so that all might understand to what things, laws or events I am refering.

  3. Br. Bugnolo, I THANK YOU again for allowing God’s light in your life to shine. You were born for this time. I especially thank you for your noble and humble apology to our Holy Father.

    As previous scholars have said (but Duns Scotus esp in regard to the Immaculate Conception), “God saw that it was reasonable, He could do it and He did.” Perhaps that is the connection made in Ganswein’s May 2016 speech when he compared Benedict’s “triumphant and difficult decision” to the Immaculate Conception? As you yourself note in your apology, “as Pope he was acting for the good of the Church in the best and only way he could see to do.” A paraphrase of sorts perhaps(?): Pope Benedict saw that it was reasonable, he and he alone could do it and so he did.

    Thank you for your tireless efforts. It is clear that the unifying focus for the faithful at any time is the pope and at this time is Pope Benedict. As CCC 882 and 883 state: 882 The Pope, Bishop of Rome and Peter’s successor, “is the perpetual and visible source and foundation of the unity both of the bishops and of the whole company of the faithful.”402 “For the Roman Pontiff, by reason of his office as Vicar of Christ, and as pastor of the entire Church has full, supreme, and universal power over the whole Church, a power which he can always exercise unhindered.”403 (I would add that he can always exercise this universal power whether we see him doing it or not and whether we understand him to be doing it or not.)

    883 “The college or body of bishops has no authority unless united with the Roman Pontiff, Peter’s successor, as its head.” As such, this college has “supreme and full authority over the universal Church; but this power cannot be exercised without the agreement of the Roman Pontiff.”404 (Benedict, by the power of God and the help of Our Lady, surely has defeated Bergoglio and his world-wide minions.)

    I continue to pray for Pope Benedict, you, Veri Catholici, and PPBXVI. I will send the suggested letter to my senators, representative, bishop, and our duly elected President, Donald J. Trump. Also, I will hand deliver copies of the suggested materials to priests, deacons, and seminarians as God puts on my heart to do so. The PPBXVI bus ads that have been proposed are worthy of my financial support as is Veri Catholici itself.

    1. Thanks. I found myself thinking a few days ago, that if it is licit for the Pope to resign then it is lawful that he appear to resign to defend himself or the Church from Her enemies or from his. Thus, though I formerly only considered that a deliberate intention to appear to resign but not resign was gravely immoral, because I saw that it was per se inconsistent with truth, I see that to God’s enemies one is not obliged to tell the truth simply and that just as one can use a mental reservation to save the innocent from capture during war time, so a Pope can use a mental reservation in the way he seems to resign. I do not know the Pope’s intentions, but as a son of Saint Francis, I am bound to see them in the best light. I hope I have done so.

  4. Feast of the Holy Name of Mary

    Brilliant Analysis!! Brother Alexis!

    Benedict has succeeded in destroying the Homosexual Network Strangling the Church precisely by drawing them out into the open.

    I had no idea Bergoglio was offered the Secretary of State office! Wow! What a significant refusal. It also puts into perspective Bergoglio ‘s use of Pell. Only he had an impeccable financial reputation hence it was a good poseur quotient for Antipope Francis Who always knew he could jettison Pell if he ever got too close due to the latter’s own compromised course from Ballarat to Sydney.

    Last point. Fatima. A key thread in the tale.

    The Third Secret—the real Third Secret containing the words of Our Lady—by unassailable eyewitness testimony—for example Cardinal Oddi; Cardinal Ciappi; Loris Cardinal Capovilla and perhaps Fr. Malachi Martin among others—attests to the Apostasy in the Church reaching to the highest levels which obviously includes the papacy.

    Or false papacy.

    The actual text of this part of the Third Secret proven to exist by Socci—a one page sheet containing 23 to 25 lines— and surfaced (via pdf and email—“Aye, there’s the rub!”) ten years ago; and thereafter nonetheless authenticated by Jose Maria Zavala to be in the hand of Sr. Lucia (the real Sr. Lucy—but that’s another albeit highly significant story—see RadtradThomist), speaks of “a false pope with an evil gaze leading people into a church of Hell.” (!!)

    If that doesn’t fit Bergoglio to a T…

  5. Vigil of Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross

    To Follow up for Fortitudo Laeticia: Re the Third Secret, here is the text (from the Portuguese by Atila S. Guimarães, at link below) and translation:

    Tuy September 1, 1944 or April 1, 1944 [or January 9, 1944, suggested by BB]


    Now I am going to reveal the third fragment of the secret: This part is the apostasy in the Church!

    Our Lady showed us the individual who I describe as the ‘holy Father’ in front of a multitude that was cheering him.

    3rd secret of fatima

    But there was a difference from a true Holy Father, his devilish gaze, this one had the gaze of evil.

    Then, after some moments we saw the same Pope entering a Church, but this Church was the Church of hell; there is no way to describe the ugliness of that place. It looked like a gray cement fortress with broken angles and windows similar to eyes; in the roof of the building it had a beak.

    Next, we raised our eyes to Our Lady who said to us: You saw the apostasy in the Church; this letter can be opened by the Holy Father, but it must be announced after Pius XII and before 1960.

    In the kingdom of John Paul II the cornerstone of Peter’s grave must be removed and transferred to Fatima.

    Because the dogma of the faith is not conserved in Rome, its authority will be removed and delivered to Fatima.

    The cathedral of Rome must be destroyed and a new one built in Fatima.

    If 69 weeks after this order is announced, Rome continues its abomination, the city will be destroyed.

    Our Lady told us that this is written, [in] Daniel 9:24-25 and Matthew 21:42-44.” (thumbprint)


    the Third Secret:

    On the Proofs of Who Sr. Lucy was, and was not, please see here:

    Fatima: Bergoglio’s Doom.

    “Rejoice, O Virgin Mary, for thou alone hast destroyed all heresies throughout the world.”

  6. NOTE FROM THE EDITOR: I just shake my head at how many people on social media do not read and do not want to think. They stop by on message boards or comment boxes merely to ridicule and make snide remarks. Now I understand what the Pharisees were doing as they passed by Christ’s Cross on Golgotha, and who is the spirit behind both groups. — Take great care of what you say, for God will judge us on our every word!

  7. Because Rome did not disclose the 3rd secret of Fatima and did not convert, so will be exterminated, just as sister Lucy wrote in her testimony on April 1, 1944 at the request of her bishop, but none of the popes took it seriously. The countdown of the critical 69 weeks, during which Rome had a chance to convert, began on the day the 3rd secret was written down and handed over to the bishop – the time elapsed on April 1, 2013! The dogma of faith will no longer be preserved by Rome (= the Roman Catholic church), but in Fatima, that is, in the person of the Mother of the Church – She, the Blessed Virgin is the depository of the Catholic faith.
    The papacy in Rome has been dissolved irrevocably – no man on earth has the power to re-establish it. This does not mean, however, that the papacy ceased to exist at all. The papacy means the father’s authority: in the Old Testament it was God the Father, in the Holy Church – Jesus Christ, in the Kingdom of God it will be the Paraclete, Father of the Poor.

    1. While what you say may be true if that is the Third Secret, it is not true what you say that the Papacy would be therefore abolished, because the Roman Church has the right to elect the pope in the absence of the entire College of Cardinal electors, or in the case of their mass apostasy.

  8. You mentioned, Brother Alexis, blessed Anna Catherine Emmerich. Below is an excerpt from the book Carl Erhardt Schmoeger “Geheimnisse des Neuen Bundes” describing the vision of this Blessed Ecstatic from October 4, 1820 (translation of the automaton):
    “Tonight I saw Saint Francis in the vision (of the pope) carrying the Church, and then I saw a little man carrying the Saint Peter’s church on his shoulders. He had something of a Jew in his face. He seemed very dangerous to me. Maria was standing at the church from his northern and She spread Her cloak over her [the church]. It seemed that this man was about to break down. I had the impression that he was a secular man I knew. It was supposed to help him lift the twelve people in whom I always saw new apostles, but they were late. When the man seemed to be falling down, everyone came and supported him. Many angels hurried to help. Only the floor and back remained from the church, the rest were destroyed by secret sects and the church’s servants themselves. They moved the church to another place.”
    When Anne Cathrine was overwhelmed by the ruin of the church, the Lord Jesus comforted her with these words: “… this moving the church means that she only seems to be falling. She rests on the shoulders of those carrying her and thanks to them she [the Church] will be reborn. Even if only one Catholic remained, the Church could win because she was not built on human understanding and advice. ”
    I don’t know why you attach so much importance to the supposed clever trick by chess player Benedict XVI. After all, his own intellect contaminated by modernism led the Roman Catholic Church to this dramatic situation.
    Who is this ONE CATHOLIC? You’ll find the answer in my previous post.

  9. Dear Dawidy,

    The reason I and everyone else should place so much importance upon the canonical trick Benedict played upon Bergoglio, is because who is and who is not pope is not determined by hearsay, the opinion of men, journalists, or even what Cardinals or Bishops say, but by the conformity of public acts with the norms of Canon Law, whereby the man who is claimed to be pope obtained his claim, and the man who is asserted to have lost or renounced the papacy has lost or renounced it.

  10. When I first discovered this entire topic re Bergoglio being an Anti-Pope, I knew it to be true because of all the things he is doing and saying which is wrong. Our Lady of Medjugorje already has plans in place announced in 1990 and again in 2005 to Rebuild The Church, it will be done from the ground up from outside the influence of the Apostles of Jesus by the Catholic laity chosen by Our Lady who are being taught by her right now. In God’s wisdom, this had to be done outside the current hierarchy due to the corruption. The pure Apostles of Jesus will remain with the Church (and there are many good Shepherds hurting right now). God Bless you and all reading this, don’t be alarmed, yes there are many challenges ahead for The Church but in the end a stronger more beautiful Church is coming soon. Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart Will Triumph.

  11. These things are helpful in that they expose the truth which has always existed. God, of course, has always known the Truth and so have the faithful who do not reject prophecy which is the Word of God given for our benefit. In actual fact, if you want to know how God feels when his people reject prophecy (without a due and serious process of discernment) check your Bible: its not pretty! Time to get on board.

    1. We should not despise prophecy, but then we should not give credence to unapproved prophecy or unauthentic prophecy. Did a Saint actually say or write such things? This is a question we should have in mind when reading a prophecy. If not, then it may not even be from God. As for there being no pope after Benedict, there is no prophecy I know which refers to that. The Prophecy of St Malachy, is actualy a 15th century forgery, I cited it in one of my articles not to approve it, but because it has been used in papal elections by Cardinals as a way of indicating who has what agenda.

  12. God, of course, is still in charge, and it could be He will use a great chastisement to straighten things out. But thanks for the insight.

  13. Reblogged this on Mary Refuge Of Holy Love and commented:
    Blessings beloved followers,

    Today, I want to share with you all this important article from someone else’s blog, which I hope that everyone will take the time to read. I did not write the article, but I feel it is the best and most accurate explanation as to why we have a situation today of two popes–one true pope and one anti-pope–according to the Third Secret of Our Lady of Fatima. One day, I hope to do my own commentary which incorporates other prophecies about this papal situation. Meanwhile, this article should answer a lot of people’s questions as to what we are witnessing about the papacy now and the loyalty we should have towards God and the pope. I recommend people share this article with others to help clear up confusion.

    God bless,
    –a soul
