Commentary by Br. Alexis Bugnolo
This news reveals that what is going on is either complex or the attempt at narrative control is multi layered. This report would have us accept as credible, that after signing a book deal with a major publisher run by the daughter of one of the leading political figures (allegedly corrupt and a freemason), that Pope Benedict XVI’s minder then attempted to block its publication immediately after the funeral of the late pope. Perhaps this is true, because he feared retribution from Bergoglio. Perhaps this is just another cover story to make the Archbishop look like he was truly respectful of Pope Benedict XVI.
But the contents of the book are damning as Cionci has shown in his recent review, where he expounds the attempts by the Archbishop to completely deny that Benedict XVI remained the pope, while avoiding the obvious insult implied upon the character of Benedict XVI, that he was either totally ignorant of what he did, or did not care for the salvation of souls or to do his duty.
Theses which are both incredible and incoherent with the statements of the late pontiff. Clearly then, it is the Archbishop who is trying to manipulate the historical record.
But it will remain a question for history, why the late Pope kept him so close. My only theory is, who is the best to guard a secret, but one who does not believe it ever existed or wants to deny it. For certainly someone allied with the St. Gallen Mafia would not engage him in a conversation to explain it.
Many wrote to the late Holy Father and never got responses, and now I think we all know why.
