Editor’s note: I cannot publish a translation, since I do not have permission. But the essence of this report is, that when asked by Kath,Net, a leading conservative Catholic News source in Germany, the Private Secretary of Pope Benedict XVI has in unequivocal terms, called the letter a forgery, and the claim that it is from him, fake news, pure and simple. — This is a wonderful confirmation of the forensic sense of Andrea Cionci, whom I interviewed the other day on this topic.
Marco Tosatti, one of the leading Vaticanista in Italy, now has cream pie on his face, for having run a story that the letter was authentic, even though he had been warned by professionals not to do this. But thankfully he has corrected the historical record with his republication of Kath.Net’s scoop.
Aleteia.org also has pie on the face, because they ran an article claiming the letter was authentic, even though the German version was shot full of errors. And this, because Aleteia.org is headed by a a prince of Liechtenstein, though their non profit foundation is head quartered in the same town as the CIA! Who arguably were the ones who got Bergoglio installed in power, after Hilary called for a springtime in the Church.
