Comments and Introduction by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

Many have commented on the future Pope’s “prophecy” about the Church in the future, but if we consider how intimately he “rubbed shoulders”, as it were, with the architects of ecclesial destruction, I think it would be more sober to conclude that he was not being prophetic, and that he was merely describing the future generations of malformed Catholics who would be raised up by the faithless clergy of his own day, who sat at and pushed the “Aggiornamento” in the most deleterious fashion possible.
