ITALY: National Catholic Avvenire admits Benedict XVI renounced only the ministerium

Commentary on the above by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

It has been 15 months since the Avvenire — the official Weekly of the Catholic Bishops of Italy — called upon a defrocked priest to write an editorial responding to Andrea Cionci’s politicization of my study of the Latin text of Pope Benedict XVI’s Declaratio of Feb. 11, 2013.  On that occasion the defrocked cleric called me an idiot for identifying 40+ grammatical and syntactical errors in the text.

Since that time the entire intellectual world in Italy has accepted my findings and recognized that there is something seriously awry, when, as Cionci uncovered in Benedict’s official biography, the Roman Pontiff says, “I know Latin very well, such that I make no errors. That is why I wrote the Delcaratio in Latin.” (Not a direct quote).*

This let Cionci in a year long study of the cryptic way the Holy Father has been sending warning signals to the world.

So, now, just days after Cionci revealed that 226 Bishops gave no counter argument to the evidence he gathered, the National Catholic Newspaper has quietly conceded the entire argument.

For in the article above the author admits that Benedict renounced the petrine ministerium. Punto. Basta. Nothing more.

But Canon 332 section 2 requires that he renounce the Munus.

I am glad that after 15 months, someone at the Avvenire has read the Latin of the Declaratio. I consider that worth at least one personal insult in the national press.


* Thus, if the assertion that “I make no errors” is correct, it must regard either the Latin or the intentional choice of words. It does not regard the Latin, as I have demonstrated, therefore it must regard the choice of words. Therefore, every word was chosen for a reason, even if it seems erroneous. Therefore, we must regard the renunciation of ministerium to be a renunciation of ministerium and not read it as a renunciation of munus, as if to correct the choice of words. And therefore, Benedict is saying by this phrase, that he is still the pope!

Introduction of DeathVaxx Passport has flipped public sentiment against the Plandemic

Commentary on Graphic by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

In an image of page three of the Italian daily, La Verità, taken from yesterdays edition, and which is now being shared on Twitter, one can see that the poll done by the Unversity of the Sacred Heart, Milan, shows a drastic change in the public view of the so called, “GreenPass”.

Upon its launch, when it was not obligatory, and there was not much disagreement:

  • I think that the use of the GreenPass is an act of social responsibility: 60% agreement
  • I think it is just to restrict access to certain public places for those who do not have the GreenPass: 59% agreement
  • I think the GreenPass is an effective measure for reducing contagion: 56% agreement
  • I think it is just to restrict work places to those who have the GreenPass: 55% agreement

However, now that the GreenPass is obligatory to work everywhere, the responses are much more negative:

  • Now that the GreenPass has been introduced, I feel safer in public places: 54% disagreement
  • The GreenPass is a method for Governmental control of the masses: 55% Agreement
  • The GreenPass strongly violates personal liberty: 51% agree
  • The GreenPass violates personal privacy: 45% do not disagree

The GoldmanSachs bought and paid for Sanitary Dictatorship of Mario Draghi supported by all the Left and Center Parties and much of the Right, and all the TV channels, would have Italians believe that those opposed to the DeathVaxx Passport are a small minority, when it is clear that they are nearly 50% of the population.  This bodes ill for Draghi and means that more repressive measures will guarantee that he will be out of power before Christmas.

Did Gricigliano force Seminarian of Don Minutella to denounce him in writing?

Summary and Introduction by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

The denunciation published by a former seminarian of Don Minutella, who is now at Gricigliano contains ridiculous accusations, according to the recipient, Don Alessandro Minutella, Pastor of Don Bosco Parish, Palermo.

Don Minutella is the world famous Catholic priest defender of Pope Benedict XVI’s status as pope, and one of the most ardent critics of Jorge Mario Bergolio’s errors, heresies and apostasy. He holds 2 doctorates in theology, one from the Gregorian here in Rome, and is an acknowledged scholar and writer of many books on theology, history and scripture. He is famous in Italy for his daily FB direct talks, masses, catechesis and rosary. He is known to all as a most devout servant of Christ, the Blessed Virgin and the Catholic Church.

In the video above, Don Minutella reads sections of the letter and comments.

The seminarian — whom I will not name — was with Don Minutella for two years. He participated in the daily prayer life, catechesis, apostolate and publishing activities of Don Minutella’s Marian Center, outside of Palermo, Sicily, known as the Little Nazareth. He even assisted Don Minutella as secretary in writing his recent book on Pope Benedict XVI, says Don Minutella.

Here is my summary of the accusations, recited in the video above, which were contained in the seminarian’s personal letter to Don Minutella:

  1. That Don Minutella does not get along with men, only with women.  — This accusation from a young man who wanted to kiss the hands of Don Minutella frequently, during the traditional liturgy, but who was often reproved in this by Don Minutella since it is not necessary or obligatory.
  2. That Don Minutella promotes the theology of a condemned theologian: Von Balthasar, whom John Paul II nominated as a Cardinal.
  3. That the formation of Don Minutella promotes spiritual tepidity, sterility and aridity. — Though the entire day at the Little Nazareth is filled with prayer, catechesis and joyful company.
  4. That Don Minutella has “romanesque” delusions about Pope Benedict XVI, based on vague ideas which are not drawn from the bi-millenial history of the Church.

Was this seminarian at Gricigliano asked to write this bitter letter of denunciation as a condition as remaining a seminarian?  It is so contrary to what all know him to have been and stood for. And I fear that the superiors of the Institute of Christ the King will soon expel him, having destroyed his personal reputation, and having used him for their game in ecclesial politics. For if there were holy and honest men at Gricigliano as confessors and spiritual directors, they would have never let him write such a letter of calumny and libel.

If you are a benefactor or supporter of the Institute of Christ the King, I would ask you in charity to contact the superiors of that Institute and ask for a public reparation of the reputation of Don Minutella for such a grave violation of honesty and justice by one of their seminarians. Ask also for the names of the priests who counseled him to write such a letter and demand that they be disciplined.

There is something very wrong with any seminary which has the effect, in the first months of formation, to instill not the spirit of St. John the Apostle, but of Judas Iscariot, the traitor.  Every Catholic should take notice and demand an explanation.

I personally find strange the entire happening, since from my own sources I have it that the majority of the priests in the Institute of Christ the King, in private, offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in communion with Pope Benedict XVI, not Bergoglio. The time has come for all to bear public witness to the truth. Young people should not be used in an internal fight in the Church or in an institute. I remain flabbergasted.
