40 Days of prayer against the Church of Darkness — Day 16

FromRome.Info Video, recorded tonight at Santa Maria Maggiore.



In the year of Our Lord 1820, God revealed to Bl. Anne Catherine Emmerich that the Church of Rome would one day be attacked from within. That there would be two popes: one false and dark, who strove to found a new Religion which would be the home of every heretic and apostate: one true and aged, who would be paralyzed by inaction and silence.

To drive the Church of Darkness out of the Church of Rome, it was revealed to her that Our Lady asked the faithful to gather at Midnight in front of the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore, here at Rome, and pray with arms outstretched, in the form of the Cross, for the space of at least 3 Our Fathers.

Prayers being said Tonight at Rome

In nomine Patri et Filii et Spiritus Sancti. Amen.

Pater noster qui es in coelis, sanctificetur nomen tuum;
adveniat regnum tuum, fiat voluntas tua, sicut in coelo et in terra.
Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie,
et dimitte nobis debita nostra, sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris.
et ne nos inducas in tentationem, sed libera nos a malo. Amen.

Padre nostro che sei nei cieli, sia santificato il tuo nome;
venga il tuo regno; sia fatta la tua volontà, come in cielo così in terra.
Dacci oggi il nostro pane quotidiano,
e rimetti a noi i nostri debiti come noi li rimettiamo ai nostri debitori,
e non ci indurre in tentazione, ma liberaci dal male». Amen. (3 volte)

Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy Name,
Thy Kingdom come, Thy Will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our Daily Bread,
And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us,
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen. (3 times)

Gloria Patri et Filio et Spiritui Sancto,
Sicut erat in principio, et nunc et semper, et in saecula saeculorum. Amen.

NOTE: Since, Bl. Anna-Katerina Emmerich had this vision in 1820, before the invention of time zones, midnight here should be understood in solar time, which at Rome makes midnight occur at 12:22 AM, presently, and thus the hour of midnight would be 11:52 AM to 12:52 AM. Try to say your prayers in that hour.

This Novena is explained and announced here in English, and here in Italian, in each place the citations from Bl. Emmerich about these prayers are given.

See the article published yesterday at FromRome.Info, The Church of Light vs. the Church of Darkness for more about this Novena of Prayer.

PLEASE NOTE: That until From Rome Info Video Channel at Youtube gets 1000 subscribers, it will NOT be able to broadcast the Nightly Prayers Live. So let all who are devoted to Jesus Christ, Our Lady and Bl. Ann Catherine Emmerich know that they need to urge subscriptions to this channel, so that we can promote the fulfillment of Our Lady’s Request for Her Heavenly-Approved prayer solution to the present Crisis in the Church.

To put a Newspaper ad calling Catholics at Rome to this pray vigil, will cost 2000 euros. Help us spread the word by a generous contribution here below. Our Lady promised victory, let us mobilize everyone to the battle!

Doesn’t that mean, he is still the pope?

By Br. Alexis Bugnolo

So a little old man who is as frail as any 93 year old man might be — though some are in better health and others not so — writes 100 pages in small folio about the Catholic priesthood and emphasizes that chastity and celibacy are part of the Sacred and Divine Tradition regarding priesthood.

And the entire Catholic world goes into an uproar. Nearly all praising the little old man, but with a vicious back draft from the hateful Main Stream Media who want him to shut up and hateful liberal clergy who likewise want him to go away, and from hate filled self-proclaimed Trad writers, publications and priestly institutes who are upset he keeps intervening and have always hated him more than you would imagine. — Do they not remember Summorum Pontificum? Guess not.

And the end result is that the evil plans of Bergoglio at least for now, regarding anti-celibacy and anti-priesthood, have been shelved. Cardinal Marx is announcing his retirement.


Does that not mean that the little old man is the katechon (2 Thessalonians 2:7), that which holds back the spirit of the Antichrist, according to the Apostle Saint Paul?

And does that not mean, that he is still the one and only true Pope and Vicar of Christ?

The Canonical Duty of Every Priest to name Benedict in the Canon of the Mass


Most priests do not know that they have a canonical right to stop naming Bergoglio in the Canon of the Mass. They think wrongly that to do so would either be outside of their authority or would involve an act of schism. That it is not schism nor a sin, is proven thus:

Here is the canonical argument

First, a validly elected Pope must be named in the Canon of the Mass as a sign of communion. This is by tradition and liturgical law.

Second: Pope Benedict XVI was validly elected Roman Pontiff on April 19, 2005 A. D., just three days after his 78th birthday.

This is a dogmatic fact, which cannot be denied.

No validly elected pope’s name must be omitted from the Canon of the Mass during his lifetime, or before he validly resigns.

Third: Pope Benedict XVI did not resign on Feb. 11, 2013, he merely retired from the active ministry, as he himself said on Feb. 28, 2013 in his final Allocution (see other evidence here). For extensive canonical information about this see ppbxvi.org.

Fourth: That Pope Benedict XVI did validly resign was the falsehood which emanated from the Desk of Cardinal Sodano. (See explanation here)

Now just as Cardinal Sodano should have acted, is how all priest should act. Namely,

In accord with Canon 40, Priests who are to say mass hold a munus which is merely executory, in regard to whom to name at Mass in the Canon as Pope. This is because they do not decide on their own authority who is the pope and who is not the pope. They follow the command of a superior. That superior is above all the Pope.

If a pope therefore does not renounce his office in accord with canon 332 §2, because he renounces his ministerium instead, that renunciation has no canonical effect, because there is no canon in the Church’s laws which regard the renunciation of ministries.

Therefore, in accord with canon 40 and 41 A PRIEST IS FORBIDDEN to alter the name of the Pope in the Canon of the Mass. He cannot act on the basis of the declaration of Non Solum Propter in the same illegal manner Cardinal Sodano did. To do so would be to collaborate in his grave crime, deceive the faithful and enter into de facto schism with Pope Benedict. (see that article for a greater explanation of the crime and moral offence)

Therefore, a priest must continue to name Benedict in the Canon of the Mass.

Therefore, a priest must cease and desist naming Francis as soon as he recognizes the validity of this canonical argument.

+ + +

(This argument is not that of the Editor of FromRome.Info, who has merely expanded it for a fuller explanation — There are already a great number of priests who do not name Francis, but name Benedict instead, some openly, some secretly, some by saying for the Holy Father, without a specific name. God bless and strengthen and multiply these priests!)

There is no greater praise a man can receive from his enemies than to be classified as a worker of the devil for having remained faithful to Christ. Just as Christ healed the sick and was condemned by the pharasees as a fraud and charlatan, in league with the Devil, so the “Bergoglio is certainly the Pope” crowd, ever eager to imitate their false shepherd, proceed to descend downward….

Here the latest. If it were not a tweet but something physical, I would keep it as a trophy:


Those who are so lost in the errors of modernism, that they think that reminding everyone of the moral obligations of remaining in communion with the true pope — obligations solemnly decreed by Pope Boniface VIII in Unam Sanctam — are doing the devils work, are so lost that they call good evil and evil good, smug in their own self righteousness, which finds its categories of sin out of the wantonness to agree with the mass of those in error and the complete repudiation of the Papal Magisterium as regards communion with the pope and when a pope resigns.

I pity them. And I pray for them.

Preaching moral obligations does not divide people, unless some of them refuse morality and others accept their obligations. To say otherwise, you would have to condemn the Apostles for founding the Church, because the preaching of the Gospel has ever been a source of division, as Christ said. I am honored to be insulted along with Them!


The International Association “Veri Catholici” is not mine nor controlled by me. If you find the truth offensive, that is your problem, but I can assure you, that you will continue to hear the truth from many voices, and not just mine. However it is true that the very long campaign to destroy the reputation of the Association and of myself by members of the “Bergoglio is certainly the pope” crowd does not convince me that they are of God. Because Christians do not act like that. — Grow up, be men, and stop replying to invitations to dialogue by hurling childish insults, as you only make yourselves look like idiots and boors.

Veri Catholici is the international Association of Catholics founded in inspiration of the call by Bishop Athanasius Schneider to oppose the monstrous implications of Amoris Laetitia and remain fast and loyal to the eternal faith. It includes more than 3000 Catholics from around the world, who show their adhesion to the association by following Veri Catholici on Twitter or via wordpress, through their website. — They are the only association dedicated to removing Bergoglio from power and restoring pope Benedict, not because of any other reason than that the teaching of the Church requires that we remain in communion with a true pope and drive heretics out of the Church. Veri Catholici is hated, therefore, by all who love to compromise. That is what makes it such a great and truly Catholic organization.

Pope Benedict XVI gloriously reigning!

By Br. Alexis Bugnolo

A lot of Catholics are still wondering: What happened seven years ago on the 11th of February, 2013, when Pope Benedict XVI read out the Declaratio, which being with the Latin words, Non solum proper?

In appearances, all Hell broke loose. That’s what. The Cardinals, all of whom did not understand what the Pope had just read — some because they do not know Latin well enough and others because the act was full of nearly 40 errors in the Latin — nevertheless decided to exploit the aged pontiff and tell the world what they wanted it to mean, and perhaps what the pope thought it meant.

But in the Church, a juridical act has an objective meaning, whether the one writing it or the one reading it, thinks otherwise. And the Church has to act this way, because it has a 2000 year history of incompetence and corruption, overcome by sanity and reason and law. — Those who want it otherwise, are simply false apostles and pathological liars.

Canonically, what happened?

By renouncing the ministerium which was entrusted to him, but not the office, the munus, or the power of the office of Saint Peter, Pope Benedict XVI arguable postied a juridical act which was valid but which did NOT separate himself from the office of Being the Pope or Roman Pontiff.

However, by renouncing the petrine ministry, he withdrew consent from every juridical act which would be posted for the remaining of his lifetime and put the College of Cardinals and the Roman Curia to a test, to see if they were loyal to Christ and Church Law or simply wanton careerists.

Whether Pope Benedict XVI intended this or not, that is the objective meaning of his act. — I won’t go into the fact that the Latin text actually says that he did this to excommunicate the College of Cardinals and liberate the Church from their corruption.

Canonically, what should have been the response?

True loyalty to a superior means serving him in fulfilling the legitimate and honest intentions he has in his acts of governance. This is especially true of the Roman Pontiff. And it is a mortal sin of great severity to obstruct the Roman Pontiff in such affairs. However, one can obstruct the will of the Roman Pontiff, not only by preventing him from doing what he wants, when it is legitimate, but by not correcting his proposed juridical acts which are defective.

On that fateful day of February 11, 2013, Pope Benedict XVI — we can say now — had no friends or allies who were both competent in Latin and Canon Law and willing to help him. Some may have seen errors in the Latin, but did not understand the consequences. Some may have seen errors in the juridical form, but said nothing, because on the one hand they wanted him to resign and get out of their way, and on the other hand they hoped the latent error would one day defeat God’s enemies.

We may never know who was of which disposition, then, but we can know today. Every Catholic who has authentic and true loyalty to the institution of the Papacy is gravely bound to advocate that the passing of this august office from one man to the next be done in accord with the Will of Christ, which is the norm of Canon Law, which requires the renunciation of petrine munus. — In this grave duty, all the Cardinals and all the Bishops alive today are either so ignorant they do not realize the problem, or so incompetent they have not the moral virtue to move to solve it, or so venial that they want the problem to persist. In each case, they probably will go to Hell for all eternity, and drag hundreds of millions of souls with them UNLESS we who know what the problem is, and know how to fix it — through a special Council, after the manner of the Synod of Sutri in 1046 — advocate that this be done.


And it is a special grace of God to know this and recognize this. But as to whom more is given, more shall be asked, let us not repose in the gladness of knowing the truth, but realize the great responsibility we have before God and before the entire Church to preach this truth!

So do not let yourself get sucked into the narrative control machinery and flow of propaganda of invalid and illicit acts coming out of the Vatican, keep insisting with your sacred Pastors that Benedict is the Pope and that they will be damned for all eternity if they persist in rejecting the norm of Canon law and leading the flock entrusted to them into the sheepfold of a liar, heretic, usurper and Antichrist.

Finally, let us keep praying for the Holy Father, who is nearly 93 years old, and who, God willing, by the end of July will have been the oldest reigning Roman Pontiff in the last 1000 years and perhaps ever.

Massive Data Breach risks Vatican financial and state security

By Br. Alexis Bugnolo

BREAKING — Rome, Feb. 12, 2020:  A massive data breach involving dozens, perhaps hundreds, of Vatican residents and workers is risking the financial security and informational security of the Vatican City State.

The data breach involved a popular dating app used by men who seek sexual encounters with other men. Numerous individuals of all levels, at the Vatican, are involved in what could be potentially explosive revelations about the sexual life of high ranking Vatican Officials.

The data breach occurred when on-line hackers breached the security of the App’s database for client to client communications. The meta data of numerous individuals was stolen, with which precise identities of users of the App in Vatican territory could be exposed, putting in danger the security of the Vatican City State.  Such confidential information is routinely used, or alleged to be hand by criminal elements who practice blackmail. If any of those persons identifiable on account of the information become subject to black mail and coercion by the international criminal syndicates who trade in such information, the access of the later syndicates to sensitive information and finances at the Vatican could likely follow undetected.

Possible targets of blackmail might be those working in key positions of the financial sector at the Vatican and those who are in custody of files and documents on others who work or serve at the Vatican.

The hackers who have the data in their possession are now attempting to market the information for $1,000,000 dollars, which is a crime in international law. The data was recently offered for sale at a meeting in the USA at which influential members of the media, who report on the Catholic Church, were present. – The confidential source of FromRome.Info affirms that these individuals who attended the meeting are now seeking the funds to purchase the information, in contravention of U.S. law.

FromRome.Info is willing to cooperate with all police authorities who wish to investigate this massive crime. We report this news for the sake of public interest.

The news however confirms the worst fears of Catholics about the Vatican since Feb. 2013, when the report detailing who were the members of the Lavander Mafia — prepared under Pope Benedict XVI and entrusted to Jorge Mario Bergoglio — apparently went missing, nothing being heard of it since.

FromRome.Info’s informants around the Vatican have also confirmed for me that when Bergoglio is in town there is a much higher number of what appears to be male prostitutes taking up cheap lodging within a kilometer of the Vatican.

These revelations cannot but cause Catholics great concern about the troubling moral collapse under the regime of Jorge Mario Bergoglio, and should motivate all of to insist that the Bishops call a special Synod to clean out the Vatican and resolve the issues of what still appears to be a failed, invalid, forced and coerced abdication of Pope Benedict XVI seven long years ago.

Br. Bugnolo’s Open Letter to Parolin

Your Excellency,

Pax et bonum!

I know you must be frustrated and I can understand your position. Under Pope Benedict XVI you were the Papal Nuncio to Venezuela, a really troublesome appointment.

But under Bergoglio you are Secretary of State and a Cardinal. Or so you thought.

Now that your office has read most of my website, FromRome.Info, you know well that Benedict never resigned the papacy, and that means you are not a Cardinal nor the Secretary of State. So I can understand your disappointment.

Moreover, having consecrated at least 24 Bishops without a pontifical mandate, you have merited excommunication latae sententiae maybe 24 times, that is, on each occasion after you knew Pope Benedict’s Declaratio did not effect his separation from the Papal Office.

And since you are a graduate of the Pontifical Ecclesiastical Academy I know you know your canon law, which is a real bummer, because you cannot plead ignorance of what you have done.

But, be assured that I have sympathy for you and want to accompany you in your pain. I feel for you. You did not participate in the Conclave of 2013, so its not canonically your fault that Bergoglio is a usurper and will go down in history as an Antipope. And I can understand fully your internal conflict that your name will go down in history as the faux Secretary of State of an Antipope.

But there is a way to fix this. And it is not by having your sostituto tell the police in the Piazza di San Pietro to attempt to charge me with everything in the book. That looks bad. And a reporter from the Associated Press saw it all. So did the AP camera crew. It even looks worse when the police who took me away did not know the definition of a Catholic priest or what clothing is worn by priests, or even that only priests represent the Church not Franciscan brothers or hermits.

But I can let you in to a big secret. The way around all your problems is being honest with Jesus Christ and with yourself. Just admit that all those around you made a mistake and in good faith you assumed your current duties. You are just as much a victim as the rest of us, who were deceived by a Tweet put out by Giovanni Chirri at 11:58 A.M. seven years and one day ago. And, besides, it is easy to blame everyone else, the doing of which in your case would — ironically — actually be a virtue!

So the way to recover the damage to your reputation is to work with Catholics like myself who want the juridical problem solved. If you want some suggestions, just drop me your contact information in a comment box, and we can meet somewhere in Italian territory.

Don’t be put off because I won’t enter Vatican Territory until I have a letter from you granting me permission. I just got a very bad impression that the Vatican is not concerned about their human rights record or their relations with citizen journalists by something that happened me yesterday, when I came to the Piazza to share my sorrow at Pope Benedict XVI being so badly treated by the Cardinals for 7 years.

So be assured of my prayers: you may not realize it yet, but I am your best friend in all of Rome.

In Saint Francis, a humble servant of Pope Benedict XVI, gloriously reigning still

Br. Alexis Bugnolo
