Commentary by Br. Alexis Bugnolo
The Vatican Press office is claiming once against the Pope Benedict XVI is in agreement with Bergoglio’s agenda to destroy the Church, and this time it is making use of the dubious letter recently published on Oct. 21, 2022. (see here)
Here in Italy, they say, cui prodest? That is, to whose advantage was it? to determine who did it. Benedict XVI’s signature is found on a letter to the Steubenville Conference, but without the P. P. that he always adds. The argument in the letter is absurd on the face of it, “The medieval Augustine was a fatal error”, because no one in the Middle Ages held that the Church in all Her members was the City of God, and because to deny that the Church is a member of the City of God formally is rank heresy, since Saint Paul the Apostle, inerrant and infallible, says that She is the Body of Christ. — Only a rabid Jesuit would dare such a statement. I conclude therefore, that Benedict XVI was forced to sign if he signed at all, and signalled to the world that he did it as the man, not as the Pope.
