English Summmary by Br. Alexis Bugnolo
It is human nature, that after great battles, one desires great signs of victory. But life and history often deceive our expectations for grand theatrical resolutions. And today’s news is just such a revelation.
In keeping with the Feb. 18, 2019 letter by Msgr. Braga, a functionary of the Secretary of State, who acknowledged in an official letter that Benedict XVI was to be addressed, “Your Holiness”, a title reserved to the sole Roman Pontiff — a detail reported on by FromRome.Info, here — a further development was taken by that same Office in November of this year, as revealed by a correspondent of Andrea Cionci, today in his article linked above.
This time the letter was in Italian, to a resident of Italy and dated Nov. 13, 2021:
The Italian text you can see in the photo above. Here is my English translation:
The Pope emeritus Benedict XVI has received your courteous letter of October 21st, last, in which you have directed to him your expressions of filial devotion.
Aware of your sentiments of manifest devotion, the Supreme Pontiff encourages you to turn your gaze with always greater trust to the Heavenly Father, Whose Face of tender love shines in Jesus the Redeemer, in the certainty that the Goodness of God arranges everything for the true good of those who allow themselves to be guided by His Will, by offering a decisive witness of faith and virtue. Pope Benedict, while assuring you and your family of a remembrance in his prayers, invokes upon each of you the heavenly protection of Saint Joseph and of the Virgin Mary, Mother of Hope, and willingly imparts upon you and all your dear ones, from his heart, His paternal Benediction, as a pledge of peace and Christian fortitude.
As can be seen from this text, there is an absolutely un-equivocal identification of the Supreme Pontiff with Benedict XVI.
And from the text itself, which appears prepared in close consultation with the Holy Father, one can gather also an important message for the universal Church, now that it has been announced without refutation, that Bergoglio, the usurper of the Apostolic Throne, is dying and that the Cardinals are mobilizing. Mobilizing in my opinion, now that I have seen this letter, to restore Pope Benedict XVI to the Apostolic Throne.

For a whole series of testimonies which show that the Vatican has always known that Benedict XVI is the pope, even while Bergoglio has pranced about the world claiming that title, see our Index on the Renunciation of Pope Benedict, in the Section entitled, “Confirmations from Rome that Benedict is the Pope”.
Of course those die-hard atheists who insist that Bergoglio, the pedophile promoter, is the Pope, will ignore this as they ignore all of reality and their own sins, but Catholics can see the truth for what it is. That some of these atheists rush to defend Catholic priests who are accused of pedophilia, while ignoring for 8 years the canoniical arguments, facts and testimonies that Benedict XVI is the Pope says everything. Benedict XVI expelled more pedos from the clergy than any Pope in history, and for that sin, he must be, in their eyes, damned from all memory and recognition.
For why Pope Benedict XVI calls himself “emeritus”, see my editorial from last week.
Finally, as a footnote, FromRome.Info wishes to acknowledge the respect accorded to it by Il Sismografo (published by Vatican Press Office insiders), for having reflected an article our ours, in their own words, about the swollen lip of Bergoglio. Another sign, that at last, a sea-change has begun at the Vatican.
