March 16, 2021: His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI totally demolished the claims of Massimo Franco of La Stampa, who at the beginning of this month claimed to have held an interview with Benedict which confirmed that Bergoglio is the pope.
In his own quite way, he did so by granting an audience, yesterday, to Lorenzo Festicini, who heads a non profit which aids the poor in west Africa and a photo op. — It is standard practice to grant a photo op to visitors of state and friends. No photo op, as with Massimo Franco of the Stampa means unwanted guest, at best.
From the photograph, it appears that the meeting took place at a little before 6 PM, Rome time. Pope Benedict XVI is seen wearing his Papal white soutain, his pectoral cross, his papal ring and stuchetto (hat) and the sandals of the Fisherman. He is also genuinely smiling.
In the course of which encounter, it is reported in the ReggioToday, that Pope Benedict XVI named him a humanitarian Ambassador:
“Il Santo Padre emerito dopo aver ascoltato le parole del presidente Festicini ha voluto impartire la benedizione e la sua “nomina” ad “Ambasciatore di Pace in ogni parte del mondo, alla sequela degli insegnamenti del cardinale Bernardin Gantin di v.m.”
Due to the importance of this news, FromRome.Info publishes here an English translation:
The Holy Father emeritus having listened to the words of president Festinici, wished to impart his blessing and his nomination of him as “Ambassador of Peace in every part of the world, in the footsteps of the teaching of Cardinal Bernardin Gantin of recent memory.”
Francini is president of the Instituto Nazionale Azurro, a humanitarian aid organization. Cardinal Bernardin Gantin was an Archbishop from Benin, who was Cardinal Bishop of Palestrina, when he died on May 13, 2008.
As for the article, it is not clear if the editor used quotes in the Italian around the word “nomination” to conceal their shock or cite Pope Benedict XVI verbatim. I think it is obviously both.
For those who have not noticed. the naming of an Ambassador is an act of a monarch who still holds all his authority and office.
Now for those of you who think that Benedict believes that he is not the pope….slap yourselves in the face, please!

Perhaps you have had the occasion to talk to someone wearing a mask about the Scamdemic. How many facts, arguments, court cases, experts have you cited to them, and concluded that you need not wear the mask, follow the controls or even believe Covid is a plague? And then despite agreeing with you, or not, they continue to wear the mask and change nothing of their behavior.
As a student of Anthropology, I have looked on in amazement at the events of the last 12 months, and tried to discern the cause for this patently illogical response, whereby a person prefers to be muzzled, imprisoned, unemployed, and isolated, and yet is happy about it.
And I have concluded, that for some reason or not, such persons do not see another human being as part of their reality. For them, what is reality is what is on the T.V..
Seeking a cause for this, I make the comparison to a faithful child, who listens to their parents and does not take counsel from strangers.
And I ask myself, how is it that they view everything said on the TV as coming from their parent, their most trusted source of information.
And I postulate that this may have to do with the boob tube. Back in the 70’s, there was one last social push against watching television. It decried the excess of watching TV with the phrase, “the boob tube”, and compared the TV to the bosom of a mother, to which a baby is affixed while it is feeding.
Recently, a study has shown that children born in the last 12 months have not acquired the human ability to recognize emotions via the face, since they have grown up without seeing their Father or Mother unmasked. They just stare blankly at everyone.
And I fear that both phenomena have to do with something similar. Namely, the deprivation suffered by a little child of human companionship.
Perhaps you have seen a movie about a child reared by wolves. He knows how to snarl and grate his teeth, like a wolf, because he had to communicate like a wolf. In actual cases, which are extremely rare, such children have extreme difficulty socializing with human beings.
Now, perhaps this is what parents in the last 50 years have done: by putting their children in front of television sets, subconsicously their children have acquired a deep psychological dependence upon the TV, such that they regard the TV as the voice of their father and mother, that is, as the most trusted an intimately trustworthy voice in their world. They have also confused reality with the TV and the TV with reality, so that the world in which you or I speak to them is not their real world. For that reason, they ignore what we say if it runs counter to their Boob Tube Adopted Parent.
As Christians, we must regard God as our Father and follow His laws, counsels, decrees and judgements. We must live to merit to be taken into His Eternal Household and we must distain the friendship of all persons and things which prevent that pilgrimage and merit.
But for those who grew up in front of TV sets, I think they may not have yet realized who their parent is, and might be deeply psychologically and neurochemically attached to and governed by the TV screen.
This is my working hypothesis. I encourage you to test whether it be true or not with the persons you encounter each day as you continue to try to talk them back into reality.

The Council of State of the Italian Republic has heard the appeal of the Ministry of Fine Arts and has ordered out the Dignitatis Humanae institute of Steve Banon from the monumental Trisulti Monastery. — Click the image above to read the breaking news in Italian.
The Dignitatis Humanae institute had obtained a 100 year contract on the basis of numerous false claims regarding its ability to manage and restore the complex.
The Ministry of Fine Arts had previously attempted to expel the institute for hiding its purpose of establishing an international school of political leaders in the Judaeo-Christian tradition, a code word for Freemasonic American political control. Bannon has in the past declared himself a christian-zionist, which is a particularly vicious form of heresy, which attempt to revise history by shifting the merits of Christianity, which come from the grace of Jesus Christ, to the categories of ethnicity or culture of a race which has rejected Jesus Christ explicitly, but which insists on a role in shaping the West to the detriment of Christendom and Christians. On the contrary, as the Catholic Church has always preached, the faith of Christ saves, not because Jesus was a jew, but because God became man to save all, Jew and Gentile, but only if they want salvation.
Bannon’s institute, however, wants to form a new generation of political leaders who in the name of nationalism, populism and sovereignty wish to impose this Masonic misrepresentation of history on Europe for the purpose or preventing a authentic restoration of Christendom, which only true Catholics can achieve.
Catholics throughout Italy are, therefore, rejoicing that this Monastery, made sacred by so many centuries of prayer and Catholic worship has been freed from a monstrous fate. Let us pray now that a truly Catholic institute applies to obtain the use of this place and restore it to its sacred character, as all the residents in the local towns, round about, want.
Cardinal Burke was previously associated with the Dignitatis Humanae institute, but broke with it after Bannon endorsed a book which exposed the rampant sexual immorality in the Roman Curia.
Steven Bannon is a former vice president of Goldman Sachs.
