In 1995, the Face of Christ bled in Benin

This video in Italian, shows the original image painted by an artist, and what happened on two occasions when it began to bleed, and a voice from heaven was heard. Subsequently a doctor who attempted to collect the blood, had the test tube fill on its own.

Here below is an article in English about this miracle, proving the Divinity of Jesus Christ and that He is the suffering servant foretold by Isaiah.

BREAKING: Why John Paul II may have canonically provided for a fake papal resignation

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

At last, one of the final pieces to the mystery of what Pope Benedict XVI did on Feb. 11, 2013 A. D., has come to light: the reason why Pope John Paul II may have enabled in the Canon Law reform of 1983, with Cardinal Ratzinger’s counsel, the ability for a Pope to fake a renunciation, so as to thwart a take over of the Vatican by the forces off ecclesiastical Freemasonry.

Prior to 1983, the Code of Canon Law reformed under Popes St. Pius X and Benedict XV stated that a pope abdicated when he renounced.

But in the Code of 1983, John Paul II changed that to allow a fake abdication. For in Canon 322 §2, for a pope to abdicate he had to renounce his munus, the charge Christ gave him when he accepted his canonical election.

If a Pope, pressured by anyone, renounced ANYTHING ELSE the renunciation would be invalid!

But why John Paul II would have done this has remained unexplained specifically until now. With the help of an investigator in the U. S. A. we have discovered a substantial explanation, which seems very probative.

In 1981, for 22 weeks, there was listed on the New York Times Best Seller list a book which spoke of a forced abdication of a pope by a plot of Cardinals.

That book was entitled, “The Clowns of God”, and its author, Morris West, a novelist, was the author of the famous novel about a future pope, entitled, “The Shoes of the Fishermen”.


Here is the cover of the paper back edition of the “Clowns of God”:

And here is the Prologue to the Book:


There are stunning details in this account which mirror the historical events of Pope Benedict XVI.

The first of which is the name of the reigning pontiff, one which breaks with the names of the Vatican II popes and takes a name of a pope of tradition.

Second, that the pope in the novel is FORCED TO ABDICATE BY THE CARDINALS.

Third, that this would happen in the 7th year of his pontificate. Benedict XVI issued his Declaratio in the final months of his 7th year.

That the pope in the novel is driven to a Monastery.  Pope Benedict XVI now lives in the Monastery of the Mother of God, at the heart of the Vatican.

That the pope who is driven out of power takes a vow of obedience to a religious of an ancient order.  In the case of Pope Benedict XVI he seems to be obeying a member of the Society of Jesus, founded 500 years ago.

John Paul II had motive

The popularity of this book in 1981 would have sent shock waves in the Vatican, which was in that year preparing the new Code of Canon Law. It seems highly probably then, that in response to the suggestion of a forced abdication, learned and widely read counselors of John Paul II might have advised him to add an object to the verb “renounce” in Canon 332 §2, so that in the future, if a pope would be constrained to abdicate, he could fake an abdication by renouncing something which seemed to be the same as munus but was not, just as Pope Benedict XVI did do on Feb. 13, 2013, when he renounced “the ministry entrusted to me through the hands of the Cardinals”.

That Pope John Paul II even in 1996, years after the new code was promulgated in 1983, still had in mind an attempt to force a papal resignation, can be seen from n. 3 of his Papal Law on Papal Elections, Universi dominici gregis:

3. I further establish that the College of Cardinals may make no dispositions whatsoever concerning the rights of the Apostolic See and of the Roman Church, much less allow any of these rights to lapse, either directly or indirectly, even though it be to resolve disputes or to prosecute actions perpetrated against these same rights after the death or valid resignation of the Pope. All the Cardinals are obliged to defend these rights.

Why mention in this paragraph, a “valid resignation”, if he did not fear a forced abdication and a tumultuous alteration of Church governance by a usurper? Just as has happened under Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who pretends to be Pope Francis.

This Book Speaks prophetically about Pope Benedict XVI!

What is perhaps more stunning, still, is that the narrative of this book fits in perfectly with what Pope Benedict XVI had been warning the world about during his pontificate, the triumph of relativism, which marks the coming of the Antichrist and the end of the world, a trial which would require the Church of Christ to separate from the Church of the Antichrist:

What would happen if members of the Roman Curia discovered that the Pope was about to publicly state that he had received a private revelation that the world was about to end – an apocalypse coming at any moment? Is he a madman, as his cardinals suspect, a mystic, or a fanatic grasping for an unholy power?

Meet the Anti-Popes

Note: There are a few historical errors in this presentation. First, St. Vincent Ferrer did not advise disobedience to the man who was pope, when he thought he was the pope. Rather, a council was held at Toulouse and St. Vincent spoke in favor of the Pope of Avignon, but after hearing the testimony and vote of the Council against the pope of Avignon, he abandoned allegiance to him and accepted the decision of the Cardinals gathered at Constance to propose a reunion by asking all candidates to resign.

Second, St. Vincent Ferrer was a greats saint, but a lousy police man, researcher and inquisitor. He believed what Cardinal de Luna told him without even the slightest doubt that his good friend was an utter self serving liar. Here we do not imitate or laud St. Vincent, but we can excuse him because unlike us, he does not have the internet to access all the documents, which in our present crisis prove 100% that Benedict XVI is the pope, and all who think otherwise do no have one document or fact to argue upon, they only weave gratuitous assertions of interpretations and out right lies against the teaching of the Church or the laws of the Church.

Our Lady of La Salette foretold a Jesuit Anti-Pope

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

Before she died, Melanie, the visionary of Our Lady at La Salette, explained one of the most cryptic passages in the Secret which Our Lady entrusted to her, which she revealed in its entirety only at the end of her life.

31. ‘The Church will be eclipsed, the world will be in consternation. But behold Enoch and Elie filled with the Spirit of God; they will preach with the strength of God, and men of good will will believe in God, and many souls will be consoled; they will make great progress by the virtue of the Holy Spirit and will condemn the devilish errors of the antichrist.’

Abbé Combe, the editor of the 1904 edition of this secret, adds the following note after this paragraph:

‘I have from Melanie that the Church will be eclipsed in this sense, that 1) one will not know which is the true pope; 2) for a time: the holy Sacrifice will cease to be offered in churches, and also in houses: so there will be no more public worship. But she saw that yet the holy Sacrifice would not cease: it would be offered in caves, in tunnels, in barns and in alcoves.’

I have already commented on this passage, on the occasion of the 175th Anniversary of the apparition.

But now I want to point out something which is as plain as day, if you have eyes to see, and think about the words of Our Lady.

The Church will be eclipsed.

What happens during an eclipse?  The Sun is obstructed by the Moon.

Have you ever seen a total eclipse in person.  I had this opportunity as a child, growing up in Portsmouth, Rhode Island. I remember it distinctly, because it totally amazed me that near noon, the entire world would grow as dark as night.

During an eclipse the WHITE clothed Sun is covered by the BLACK clothed Moon.  The Moon tries to usurp the place of the Sun. But fails as soon as it does.

So, according to Melanie, since the Sun refers to the true pope, and the moon to the false pope, then “Sun” = “pope”, and you can rephrase, what I just wrote in bold italics, thus:

During the eclipse of the Church the WHITE POPE is pushed aside by the BLACK anti-Pope.

But the “Black Pope” is the traditional title for the Jesuit of highest rank in the Society.

Therefore, it seems that in this one metaphor, Our Lady was teaching that:

  1. There would be a conflict between the Pope and an anti-Pope.
  2. The Anti-Pope would be defeated.
  3. The Pope would outlast or outlive the anti-Pope.
  4. The Anti-Pope will be a Jesuit.

I think the Queen of Heaven uses Her words with great precision. Thus I believe we can be confident She was giving us a very pregnant message of truth, in such a way, as to give us guidance when the darkness would break out.

When Our Lady came to La Salette, France, on September 19, 1846, she did so in the 33rd year after Pope Pius VII restored the Society of Jesus in existence on August 7, 1814, after its suppression by the Franciscan Conventual Pope, Clement XIV in July 21, 1773. I think therefore that we can now explain theologically why Our Lady came in 1846. The Society was named after Her divine Son, Who redeemed the world when He was 33 year of age. To warn the world about this restored Society of Jesus was in fact essential to Her Mission. We all know by now into what utter corruption and perfidy the Society has fallen. And Bergoglio is the flower of all that impurity and impiety.

Holy Virgin of La Salette thank you! And protect us!

InfoVaticana spills details about Pope Benedict XVI’s Renunciation of Ministry

Report and Commentary by Br.Alexis Bugnolo

Rarely, now, after 8 years, do new facts about what Pope Benedict XVI did on Feb. 11, 2013 come to light. But recently InfoVaticana, a Spanish language publication which has made a reputation for itself for exposing the scandals of the Bergoglian anti-papacy, has given the world a slew of them.

The info dump was made in the final lines of their article entitled, “El pase verde en Vaticano, la justicia liquida del estado pontificio, el vergonoso informe francés, la rinuncia de Benedicto XVI”, which was published on October 8th, on their blog, Specola, whose author is anonymous.

The key passages are found at the end of the article. Here is the Google translation:

“We end with the resignation of Benedict XVI, which continues, and will continue, to be news. An attempt is made to reconstruct the prehistory of his decision since a year before, on April 30, 2012, he spoke about it for the first time with Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, his secretary of state. Then he revealed it “to three other people very close to him: his confessor, a Polish priest from the Apostolic Penitentiary; his older brother, Monsignor Georg Ratzinger; and his private secretary, Monsignor Georg Gänswein ».

“On February 4, 2013, a few days before the “bomb”, Ratzinger reported it to the Quirinal. On the night of February 10, Becciu telephoned Greg Burke “to ask him to arrive a little earlier than usual at the office the next morning”, to prevent the news from reaching the newspapers before Pope Benedict’s formal announcement XVI. On the eve of the consistory, Guido Marini, in a completely unusual way, telephoned the home of each pontifical master of ceremonies to assure their presence. On February 10, the text of the resignation is definitively revised, which still raises so many controversies and “interpretations” today. The Pope’s autograph is dated February 7 in a first text and, after a small spelling correction in the Latin text. Considering also the need for a precise translation into Italian and other languages, the final text is dated February 10th.”

The level of detail here requires the question regarding the source of this information. This sort of thing is not done by the Vatican through official channels. It seems that, if it is true, it must come from sources close to His Holiness, if not Archbishop Ganswein himself. I expect a rush among Vaticanista to confirm them.

The first thing that catches my eye, is that the first draft of the Declaratio is dated on February 7th, 2013.  This makes little sense. First, because Benedict XVI never stated that he wanted to renounce on the Feast of St. Romuald, Abbot. I presume this date is only a protocol detail for the draft, not the date for the actual document’s promulgation.

Then the date of Feb. 10th as the last draft, final version. This gives me the impression that from Feb. 7 to 10th, the Latin text was looked over by the Secretary of State, as we now know from sources dug up by Andrea Cionci of the newspaper, Libero.  This would explain why a rush job by the correctors missed more than 40 errors in the Latin, even though I found them all in the space of 4-6 hours.

Importantly, we now know the identities of those who counseled him, badly or well, as opinions vary: his confessor, who is a polish priest who was serving in the Apostolic Penitentiary; his own brother, whom we can presume gave no professional advice; and Ganswein, who holds a doctorate in Canon Law, but does not show himself in important moments to have ever read the Code in Latin. Upon these men will now fall the full weight of attentive criticism  for the invalid or mysterious act.

Finally, that Pope Benedict XVI first discussed the renunciation in April of the year before, will arouse new speculations that he did so because of the VaticanLeaks controversy. This supports Cionci’s inference that the renunciation is the declaration of a sede impedita (an impeded see), wherein the Holy Father cannot even correspond with other members of the Sacred Hierarchy with the discretion required to govern the Church.

UPDATE:  According to our sources, the above information related by InfoVaticana has been taken from a book by Anontio Grana, a Vaticanista who works for Il Fatto Quotidiano, an Italian daily.

At La Salette 175yrs ago: a prophetic warning of 2 Popes


by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

This prophecy is contained in a commentary by the Abbe Combe, on the full secret given to Melanie (Read full secret here).

The passage of the secret, commented on, is this:

28. ‘Rome will lose the faith and become the seat of the antichrist.’

29. ‘The demons of the air with the antichrist will perform great wonders on the earth and in the air, and men will corrupt themselves more and more. God will have care of His faithful servants and men of good will; the Gospel will be preached everywhere, all peoples and all nations will have knowledge of the truth!’

30. ‘I address a pressing appeal to the earth: I call upon the true disciples of God living and reigning in the heavens; I call upon the true imitators of Christ made man, the only and true savior of men; I call upon my children, my true devotees, those who have given themselves to me so that I may guide them to my divine Son, those whom I carry so to speak in my arms, those who have lived by my spirit; finally I call upon the Apostles of the last times, the faithful disciples of Jesus Christ who have lived in a contempt for the world and for themselves, in poverty and in humility, in contempt and in silence, in prayer and in mortification, in chastity and in union with God, in suffering and unknown to the world. It is time that they go out and come to enlighten the earth. Go, and show yourselves as my dear children; I am with you and in you, provided that your faith be the light which enlightens you in these days of woe. May your zeal render you like the starving for the glory and honor of Jesus Christ. Fight, children of light, you the small number who can see; for behold the time of times, the end of ends.’

31. ‘The Church will be eclipsed, the world will be in consternation. But behold Enoch and Elie filled with the Spirit of God; they will preach with the strength of God, and men of good will will believe in God, and many souls will be consoled; they will make great progress by the virtue of the Holy Spirit and will condemn the devilish errors of the antichrist.’

Abbé Combe, the editor of the 1904 edition of this secret, adds the following note after this paragraph:

‘I have from Melanie that the Church will be eclipsed in this sense, that 1) one will not know which is the true pope; 2) for a time: the holy Sacrifice will cease to be offered in churches, and also in houses: so there will be no more public worship. But she saw that yet the holy Sacrifice would not cease: it would be offered in caves, in tunnels, in barns and in alcoves.’

I would say that Melanie spoke of our own days….

Here is my 3.5 hour documentary to help Catholics discern which of the 2 Popes is the true Pope and which is the servant of the Antichrist:



Pope St. Pius X foresaw Pope Benedict XVI as the true Pope until his death

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo


In 1909, during his audience with the Franciscans, Pope St. Pius X fell into an ecstasy.

When he came out of it, he was asked, “What I have seen is terrible! Is it I or one of my successors. I do not know. I saw a pope flee from the Vatican, walking upon the cadavers of his priests.”

Of a second vision, sometime before his death on August 20, 1914, the Saintly Pope said again, now with more precision: “I saw one of my successors, with my same name, who fled, walking upon the cadavers of his brothers. He will take refuge in a hidden place. But after a short rest, he will die a cruel death.”

The source of this testimony is repeated by several Italian authors, such as Antonio Socci, as something which was considered credible by even those who work in the Vatican, but I can find no certain person or source for it.

As for what these words of the Saintly pope mean. First, let me explain that the term, “brothers” in the mouth of the Pope in those times refers to his brother Cardinals. Second, the Italian, which I have translated as “with my same name”, means one who has the same name. This could be Pius or his baptismal name, Joseph.

Well since Pope Pius X there have been 2 popes named Pius: Pius XI and Pius XII, but neither of them had to flee the Vatican, nor did either die a cruel death — a phrase which I translated literally from the Italian, and which means a death in which there is a shedding of blood.

But Pope Benedict XVI’s baptismal name is Joseph.

So if this vision pertains to him, then it not only foretells a horrible end for him, but signifies that in the mystical visions of Pope Saint Pius X, God had revealed that Pope Benedict XVI will be the true successor of Saint Peter unto the very day of his death. And that means Bergoglio was never the pope.
