Resquiescat in Pace: Pope Benedict XVI

By Br. Alexis Bugnolo

Today at 9:34 A. M., the Roman Pontiff, Pope Benedict XVI passed to his eternal reward. He was 95 years old, and the oldest Roman Pontiff in the history of the Catholic Church. Since February 2013 he had been involved in the most intense legal dispute with the Roman Curia, who sidelined him, and misrepresented his retirement as an abdication. Silenced and manipulated for nearly 10 years, he was forbidden to leave the Vatican or receive news from the outside world. But till the end he maintained that he never resigned the Petrine Munus, and retained the only legitimate claim to the Papal Office.

LET US PRAY FOR THE REPOSE OF THE SOUL OF HIS HOLINESS POPE BENEDICT XVI, THE ONLY TRUE VICAR OF CHRIST. THE CHURCH OF ROME IS NOW IN SEDE VACANTE, and there is much mourning and sadness. Please respect that, and spend each day praying with all the Catholics of Rome for the Holy Father.

FromRome.Info will be reporting live from Rome in a few hours, as we retell the life, works and battles of Pope Benedict XVI and explain the canonical consequences of his death.

Our reporting in the next month will include live reports from Rome on a nearly daily basis with interviews of experts. This will require that FromRome.Info increase its expenses, and I would beg your support, as FromRome.Info will be the only news service in the English language bringing you the unvarnised truth about what is transpiring. If you can assist me in this non-profit apostolate, I would be much grateful.

Clergy of Rome pressure De Donatis to preside at Mass for Pope Benedict XVI’s recovery

Editor’s Note: In an amazing turn of events, De Donatis, the acting “Cardinal Vicar” for Rome, who announced the other day that the Vicar of the Archpriest of the Basilica of St. John Lateran would preside at the Mass this evening for the health of Pope Benedict XVI, has decided to preside.

The announcement was marked by FromRome.Info for being an outrageous insult of the Holy Father. The insult revealed that De Donatis knows that Bergoglio and his party are usurpers and rivals of the true Pope. Because otherwise, why be so mean as to snub him, when you yourself are the Vicar of the Diocese of Rome? That kind of pettiness is the clothing of the dishonest.

That De Donatis made a 180 degree turn, means that tremendous pressure was brought upon him by the Clergy of Rome. In the video above one can see numerous bishops and clergy who attended the mass.

This itself it news. And its implications are beyond evaluation at the present moment, other than to say, that this looks good for the restoration of Pope Benedict XVI.

The Clergy of Rome have spoken. And it appears to be strongly in favor of the true Pope Benedict XVI.

At Padua: New Mass Center for Catholics in communion with Pope Benedict XVI

Editor’s Note: There are now at least 8 mass centers for those Catholics in communion with Pope Benedict XVI in Europe. The center announced today is near Venice, and will be inaugurated on January 6, 2023 A. D..

These can be found at:

  • Piccolo Nazereth, at Carini, Sicily, east of Palermo (Daily): Don Pavel, SDB.
  • Foggia, Italy (Regularly)
  • Province of Rome, Italy: Here at the Hermitage of the Holy Cross (occasionally)
  • near Pesaro, in the Marche (Daily Mass): Don Natale
  • Tre Baseliche, Diocese of Treviso, the Little Tabor of the Heart of Christ the King: Pd. Celestino (daily)
  • in the Veneto: Don Enrico (daily Mass)
  • In Eastern Austria: Father Gebhard (daily Mass)

If the Faithful know of priests who celebrate in communion with Pope Benedict XVI and which to publicly announce this, let me know. I know there are priests in Colombia, Mexico and other nations round the world who celebrate daily in communion with Pope Benedict. But I am not free to announce the place, without their decision.

De Donatis asks clergy of Rome to remember Pope Benedict XVI at Mass

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

There is an old Roman proverb, “Say nothing ill of the dead”.  But like every traditional rule of morality, the Mafia of St. Gallen trample it underfoot like  a pearl thrown to swine, who know not the value of pearls.

And so it is, while the Holy Father lies in bed, stable, not dying, altert, not unconscious, Father Angelo De Donatis, who was put in the place of the Cardinal Vicar of Rome, has has the impious gall to send a letter to the clergy of Rome, insulting the Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI even while he asks for prayers for him.

The garrulous malice is spewed out in omissions, where in the text of the letter he says, “Benedict XVI” without title!

Aha! I say. Your lie has condemned you. Because in not calling him “Pope emeritus” you admit that no such office exists, but by calling him by his regnal name, you admit he is still the pope, and thus condemn yourself for impiety and usurpation, since the Holy Father made you neither Vicar of Rome nor Cardinal. You are merely a priest, illicitly made a bishop, and excommunicated ipso facto for that!

But De Donatis goes deeper into impiety, by calling Pope Benedict, later on in the Letter, “our Bishop emeritus”.

Then he adds insult to injury, as it were, by saying that tomorrow, December 30, the Vicar of the Archpriest of the Lateran Basilica will offer mass for the health of Pope Benedict XVI. A vicar of an archpriest! Can one find a lower office to celebrate a mass for a reigning Pontiff?

With this letter De Donatis has sealed his fate as a vicious schismatic, who insults Popes on their sickbed and attempts to rub in as much insult as possible, while feigning piety.

But the justice of God sees all, and gives to all their recompense!

VATICAN: Telephone Operators habitually identify Benedict XVI as “Pope” w/o “emeritus”

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

In an exclusive, to be found no where else in the media, comes the report by an informant of FromRome.Info, that when local phone calls are made to the central phone office of the Vatican City State, the operators are found to be identifying Benedict XVI as “pope” without any mention of “emeritus”.

Our informant also testifies that the staff in the Master Ecclesiae Monastery also refer to the Holy Father with his papal office.

It seems that only on social media and in the writings of paid journalists, does anyone call Benedict XVI “Pope emeritus”. Though I noticed that even Edward Pentin — former secretary to a socialist MP in the United Kingdom — calls him “Pope Emeritus”, in an evident attempt to please those who have seized control of the Vatican.

Airton Vieira: A Morte Bento XVI (At the death of Benedict XVI …)

Editor’s Note: This 1:45:00 video by the editor of the Katejon Journal in Brazil is NOT about the death of Pope Benedict XVI, but about the canonical consequences in the hypothetical case that he would die before Bergoglio. In the Portuguese speaking world, the Katejon journal in Brazil is the flagship journal for news about Pope Benedict XVI.

Pope Benedict XVI: Christians have the duty to NOT conform or submit to the Powers of Finance and Media

 Pope Benedict XVI

Address to the Seminarians of Rome

February 15, 2012 A. D.

Entire discourse here in English

Editor’s Note: Here you can see why, the powers of this world wanted Benedict XVI to abdicate. He was opposed totally to their domination, and was intent on teaching the clergy to do the same. A religion exactly opposite to that of the St. Gallen Mafia.


St Paul continues: “Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewal of your mind” (v. 2). “Do not be conformed to this world”. There is the non-conformism of Christians who do not let themselves be conformed. This does not mean that we want to flee from the world, that the world does not interest us: on the contrary we want to transform ourselves and to let ourselves be transformed, thereby transforming the world. And we must bear in mind that in the New Testament, especially in the Gospel according to St John, the word “world” has two meanings and thus points to the problem and to the reality concerned. On one side is the “world” created by God, loved by God, to the point that he gives himself and his Son for this world; the world is a creature of God, God loves it and wants to give himself so that it may really be a creation and respond to his love. But there is also the other conception of the “world” kosmos houtos: the world that is in evil, that is in the power of evil, that reflects original sin. We see this power of evil today, for example, in two great powers which are useful and good in themselves but can easily be abused: the power of finance and the power of the media. Both are necessary, because they can be useful, but are so easy to abuse that they frequently convey the opposite of their true intentions.

We see that the world of finance can dominate the human being, that possessions and appearance dominate the world and enslave it. The world of finance is no longer an instrument to foster well-being, to foster human life, but becomes a power that oppresses it, that almost demands worship: “Mammon”, the real false divinity that dominates the world. To counter this conformism of submission to this power we must be non-conformist: “having” does not count, it is “being” that counts! Let us not submit to the former, let us use it as a means, but with the freedom of God’s children.

Then the other, the power of public opinion. Of course we need information, we need knowledge of world affairs, but then it can be a power of appearance; in the end, what is said counts more than the reality itself. An appearance is superimposed on reality, it becomes more important, and man no longer follows the truth of his being, but wishes above all to appear, to be in conformity with these realities. And Christian non-conformism is also against this: we do not always wish “to be conformed”, to be praised, we do not want appearances, but the truth, and this gives us freedom and true Christian freedom; in freeing ourselves from this need to please, to speak as the masses think we ought to, in order to have the freedom of truth and thus to recreate the world in such a way that it is not oppressed by opinion, by appearances which no longer allow the reality to emerge; the virtual world becomes more real, stronger, and the real world of God’s Creation is no longer seen. The non-conformism of the Christian redeems us, restores the truth to us. Let us pray the Lord that he help us to be free people in this non-conformism which is not against the world but is true love of the world.
