Let us not fear the death of the body, let us fear the death of the soul

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

God has not created us for this world, but has intended us to be capable of the world to come. He has graced us beyond all graces in raising us to the dignity of His adopted sons in Baptism and in saving us from the servitude of Satan by the power and grace merited by His Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, upon His Cross.

Thus, let us not fear more the death of the body, than the death of the soul.

The body is born once and it will die.

But the soul is created by God and will exist forever.

Ours is the choice of whether to have a soul which will be eternally dead and damned, burning in the inferno of Hell with Satan.

Or, to have a soul which will be eternally alive and blessed, beholding God face to face in the beatitude of Heaven, with the joyous company of Jesus, Mary, Joseph, and all the Angels and Saints.

If we, at the contemplation or consideration of our own mortality, can naturally incline to sadness at the only thing worthy of it in this world: losing the companionship of our loved ones in this world, we should tamp that down, with the consideration, that if we but die as God’s friends in the state of grace, we shall be taken into a much more perfect communion of the Saints, who are closer to our loved ones than we can ever be in this world.

For the faithful Catholic, physical death is not the end, nor is life in the world to come to be presumed.

We must confess all our mortal sins and repent of all our sins. We must do penance and good works and atone for our wrong doings.

But let us never fail in our hope in the God Who had descended from Heaven and died for us and called us into the wonderful Kingdom of His Love, apart from which there is no salvation: which Kingdom in this world is the Catholic Church.

After death comes only judgement, in life there is yet abundant mercy.

Let us live in such a way as to merit, not a demotion or end in death, but a promotion and ticket to the greatest party and feast in all the universe: the Empyrean Heaven.

I thank you all for praying for me, but pray more for the graces to continue or begin in such a life of hope. If God be knocking at my door, it is a knock I have been waiting for from my youth, and preparing. May God have mercy upon me, and may my Lady receive my sacrifice.

Why do you hate Benedict XVI so much that you do not want him back?

Editorial by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

I think at last, we who follow Canon Law and recognize it places us under a divine obligation to follow its terms in a papal resignation, on account of the word of Christ to Pope John Paul II: Whatsoever you bind upon Earth, shall be bound in Heaven – A direct reference to all papal laws regarding the transfer of the Papal office — of which Canon 332 is the key in the present crisis — We, I say, who follow Canon Law, need to ask those who for 8 years, after countless speakers, writers, bloggers, journalists, priests, Bishops and Cardinals have talked on the matter, but still continue to refuse that he is the one and only true Pope: WHY DO YOU HATE BENEDICT SO MUCH?

Because there really has to be a strong visceral hatred of Pope Benedict XVI to prevent many Catholics who know of this controversy and have the time to read the evidence, to fail to do so and recognize him as the one and only true Pope, NOT only because the facts and the law are 100% in favor of Pope Benedict XVI still being the pope, but ALSO because returning to POPE BENEDICT XVI is the easiest, fastest, and most complete way to reject the claims and errors of Jorge Mario Bergoglio in his pretension to be pope!

Even Sedes, who want a strong argument could not find one stronger, less in need of private interpretation, more clear and effective.

So, I have to ask all those who insist Benedict XVI resigned the papacy, WHY IS IT THAT YOU HATE HIM SO MUCH THAT YOU DO NOT WANT TO RECOGNIZE THAT HE NEVER RESIGNED THE PAPACY VALIDLY?

Could it be one or more of these reasons?

  • You do not give a bleep who is pope, you only care that your local parish or mass center accepts you each Sunday at Mass, so you can worship yourself in peace.
  • You do not give a bleep about God being Truth and requiring us to live in the truth, obey the laws of the Church, because religion for you has nothing to do with eternal judgement according to the laws of God. You are quite happy to grasp for that salvation promised to you by men, regardless of the fact that they have no power to provide salvation apart from God’s laws?
  • You actually do hate Benedict because he restored the Ancient Roman Mass to the faithful by granting them legal rights to have it and celebrate it.
  • You actually do hate Benedict because he kicked more pedos and sodomites out of the priesthood than any other pope.
  • You actually do hate Benedict because he attacked the dictatorship of relativism, upon which you have based your entire character, habits, life, friendships and career.
  • You actually do hate Benedict because he represents paternal authority, hierarchical order, law and justice, and you want a Christianity or prefer a Catholicism, where ritual and faith is divorced from morality and obligation, and women do not have to submit to their husbands.
  • You actually do want the religion being ushered out by Bergoglio, because you already adore some creature in your heart, like sex, money, power, esteem etc., more that God, and to have a Catholicism in which you can practice your internal idolatries out in the open — like dumping your wife and taking another — while still being able to attend the TLM or show yourself religious on Sunday at your parish, is your heartfelt deepest desire.
  • You actually do hate Benedict because the Cardinals all despise and hate him and you are such a knave that if they won’t come to his defense, then neither will you.

But if none of these is the reason why you wont recognize Benedict XVI as the pope, even though he did not renounce the petrine munus as Canon 332 literally and explicitly requires, then please admit to yourself today, that you have NO reason for your perfidy but sloth and  irrationality. And what do you think that merits you before God?

Our Lady at La Salette told Melanie that at one point the Lord would be so angered at humanity that He will send His Angels and slay all His enemies. In the Apocalypse, the Horsemen wearing crowns (coronas) will kill a third of humanity.

Maybe, just maybe, all those who rejected Benedict and continue to embrace Bergoglio, the Vaxx preacher, are going to get the punishment they deserve?

Fear God, I say. And repent.  There is little time now. The Horsemen of the Apocalypse Cometh!

The Masonic Lodge, MkUltra, Population control & the project to damn as many souls as possible

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

One of the most demonic projects of modern times is the Masonic goal of destroying human civilization through the spread and diffusion of pornography.

Pornography is the most alluring and destructive psychological manipulation tactic that the worshipers of Satan have used, because it exploits a natural tendency of mankind and repurposes it to the destruction of self and others, the degradation of the image of God in man, and the sterilization of cultures.

The Masonic Lodge, as I have mentioned many times, is a coven of perverse psychopaths. They may very well also be the sons of witches, so great is their devotion to evil. And yet the higher and knowledgeable levels of Freemasonry keep many of the lower levels in the dark, so that just as carnal men cannot understand their betrayal of God through carnal sins or omissions, so they can lead the most men and women possible into their network of control and power, for the damnation of all of humanity.

To join any society which does not name Jesus Christ as the sole savior and require faith in the God Whom He has revealed, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, is a grave sin of rebellion to God and already merits a certain sort of dark sin which opens the doors to psychopathy and diabolic possession.  And thus, it is the very existence of the Masonic Lodge which fulfills is primary purpose of existence.

But the use of pornography to attain these goals is central to the way Freemasonry recruits members and obtains control of them. They associate with non-freemasons in every social context possible, and form friendships with other men and women. Then they admit that they practice some sort of deviant sexual behavior and many even list such behaviors to discover to which one the non-mason is lured most. Then they offer access to such perversions and use that knowledge to blacklist and control the non-mason, even if afterwards he does not join the Lodge.

The legalization and diffusion of pornography is thus a key element in Masonic world domination. The upgrading of the Internet in the 90s to contain images allowed the internet to become the “web woven over all the nations” — as Isaiah calls death — to push pornography into the view of all human beings, of whatever gender or age.

The recent push by Globalists to isolate everyone and to make them dependent on the internet and cellphone with graphic abilities are thus not casual accidents but rather part and parcel of the program to enslave all souls to Satan through impurity.

Our Lady warned us against this at Fatima, when she said the majority of souls who go to Hell, go there because of sins of impurity.

God the Creator hates impurity because it repurposes the greatest natural power he has given mankind — that of participating with Him in the creation of a new human person — and redirects this to purposeless and addictive self-gratification and the destruction of family life.

In fact, if you have had the misfortune of knowing anything about pornography, none of it has anything to do with a husband and wife, and all of it is designed to make the person who looks upon it addicted to forms of venereal activity which cannot produce life, or if they could, would do so outside of the family, so that the child conceived could become more easily controlled by Masonic institutions.

Pornography is as much a mythology as it is a perversion. As a perversion, there is no right use of it, and he is a fool who thinks otherwise. It is disgusting, shameful, twisted, and created by persons who have so sense of self dignity or any grasp of morality. Its publishers are psychopaths, who aim to make money by destroying families and degrading human beings to a level lower than dogs. And Christians should lobby and vote so that the entire industry be outlawed and its publishers given capital punishment, as all barbarians and enemies of humanity deserve.

Pornography is essentially anti-human, because the intimacy of a human being is something which belongs by right to no one but that person and his or her spouse.  Thus to look upon another human being stripped bare is a violation of that person’s human dignity, even if you do not know who that person is.

Pornography is also a mythology, because nearly everything in pornography contains the promotion of things or behaviors which are highly unsound medically and biologically disordered.  The parts of the human body made for procreation belong only together and not in contact with those parts of the body used for eating or excrementation.  Any idiot can see this. And to obstruct the conception of new life is the greatest attack on one’s own dignity and the greatest robbery of benefits from the prospective father and mother.  Finally, the distortion of the venereal powers, from being directed to conception of a new human person toward pleasure for itself, is a pathological form of psychosis, which can only lead to sociopathy:  the belief that one is not obliged by the moral law in certain cases, which leads to all kinds of criminality and abuse of others and self — and to psychopathy: the belief that there is no moral law and that all things can be allowed.

Pornography also has the aims, thus, of sterilizing nations, exterminating Christian peoples, taking away the basic natural motivations for life, which consist in forming a family and enjoying the unity and benefits of family life. Man without children is a man without purpose who exists only to be enslaved by the purposes of others. He cannot work for his own benefit, since he has no benefit which is truly his own without wife and children.

Pornography is the chief cause of effeminacy. Because instead of seeking a wife and having children, so, so many men prefer simply to abuse themselves or others to have the venereal pleasure without family or children. And a man who takes such pleasure by himself is no different from a sodomite, because there is absolutely no other sexual orientation but the natural one, everything else is a lustful addiction to self abuse or to being abused sexually by others.

Pornography also makes a person cold, soul-less, selfish, vain, empty, proud, unfaithful, undisciplined, inconstant and sick in the mind, prone to exploit others for mere passing feelings.

When you realize how demonic are the forces behind pornography, perhaps then you can turn back to God and beg the grace to be liberated from the terrible vice of condoning it in any manner.  Many want to be freed from this, but because there are so many errors involved in pornography — the more principal ones which I have named above — unless you reject all these errors it is easy to fall back into this sin, because of the many breaches of error which have been forced open in the conscience by this sin and wicked practice.

Pornography is so evil that every Christian has the right to destroy porn, even if it is not his own property, whether it be printed, sculpted or in electronic form. Even in the family, every member has the right to insist that no one living under the same roof keep it.

Those keeping porn, themselves, need to recognize that by doing so they are rejecting all that which makes a man a rational, civilized, moral and family-oriented being.

As Christians we need to preach against pornography, blacklist all corporations which promote it, exclude from politics all political parties in favor of it, and seek the prosecution of all politicians and businessmen who allow it for spreading dangerous medical misinformation and for promoting the sexual abuse of minors, where pornography always leads to.

Begin today your own personal war against porn, by removing from your home all that falls under this category, destroying it by fire or breaking CDs or video cassettes which contain it. Install protecting filters on your computer if you have this addiction. And confess this sin and vice as soon as you can, while professing all the truths which it attempts to undermine:  that God our Creator gave us the greatest natural power of procreation which can only be used licitly and effectively and usefully in the procreation of children of our own with our spouse in holy matrimony and which God never intended to be used at any other time for any other purpose, on account of the great dignity of this power and the very nature of man, who is made in the image and likeness of His Creator.

Chose God and hold fast in faith to the wonderful truths and proper use of the powers he has given you. Reject Satan and his minions in the Masonic Lodges, halls of power and economics, and followers in society, and live chastely and uprightly in the sight of the living God.

Finally, we must all remember that the first Divine Command to the human race is this: “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the Earth”.  Thus, if you do not have the vocation to be a priest or monk, you have the divine duty to marry and have children. Padre Pio advised every Catholic couple to have 8 children. Seeing how most have sterilized themselves through porn, abortion and/or other forms of selfishness, I would recommend to each couple to have 16 or 20.  In consequence, this means, that the entire Catholic community should be vigilant to help young people find their future spouse and marry well. We cannot afford to ignore this most important apostolate of promoting the Catholic Family. Catholic employers can do their part, by stop giving to secular causes, and direct all disposable funds to increasing the wages of those workers who have respected God and trusting in His Name by having more children.

On the Coming restoration of Pope Benedict XVI

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

July 9, 2021 A. D.: While things look darker and darker every day, the facts and events bear out an inexorable process which has manifested the election of Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio as a complete canonical fraud and his claim to the papacy not worth a shred of used toilet paper.

While seemingly irrefutable in his apparent claims to the Papacy, the doubts have ever been growing, from the indiscrete admissions of his own allies such as Cardinal Danneels and Austin Ivereigh to the persistent inquiries into the canonical invalidity of Pope Benedict XV’s Declaratio of February 2013.

The major waypoints in this process were Ann Barnhardt’s declaration of war against the substantial error implicit in the Declaratio, which she launched in June of 2016. Though many notable commentators had previously pointed out problems, Barnhardt was the first to unequivocally and notoriously call the act invalid to remove the Papal office (munus) from Pope Benedict.

When Msgr. Niccolo Bux in October 2018 publicly affirmed that it would be easier to demonstrate the Renunciation invalid that to canonical determine that Bergoglio was a heretic, a stormy and vivacious debate burst out in the English speaking world from November 2018 to February 2019.

That debate ended with a hands down victory for the party of Pope Benedict, when every possible canonical, logical, linguistic, philosophical and theological objection to the assertion of invalidity was refuted. I gathered up the arguments in my Scholastic Question, which so far has never been refuted by anyone anywhere with or without a degree in Canon Law, Theology or Philosophy.

Since February 2019, a series of objectors and journalists have rehashes these arguments in diluted form only to be slapped down again and again with facts, laws and the testimonies of public witnesses.  Here at FromRome.Info, which has documented these feeble attempts at counter-attack, readers have the near weekly occasion to read critiques of all the major interlocutors on this issue, who hold that Bergoglio is the Pope.

Following this debate, in 2020 it became publicly known, world-wide, that Archbishop Lenga and Bishop Gracida held that Benedict XVI is the pope and that Bergoglio is a manifest pertinacious heretic. Yet, neither of these Bishops were canonically censured or suspended.

Finally, in this year of Our Lord 2021, in the weeks prior to the 70th Anniversary of the Holy Father’s ordination to the priesthood, the battle here at Rome was begun in earnest, with Andrea Cionci’s numerous articles appearing at the beginning of March and going uninterrupted until the present day:  all of which have never been refuted by anyone in the Vatican or in Italy, Cardinal, Bishop, monsignor or canonist, theology or philosopher.  All of which prove without a doubt that Benedict XVI is still the pope.

The crucial fact which came to fore in these articles and investigations by Cionci are these:

  1. That Benedict XVI has always said, “There is only one pope”, but has never identified Bergoglio as that man.
  2. That Benedict XVI has denied that he has abdicated.
  3. That Benedict XVI still comports himself as the Pope and that no one in the Vatican can dissuade him or dare to stop him.
  4. Benedict XVI has undertaken a very wise, clever and discreet plan of maneuver to save the Papacy from the St. Gallen Mafia: the Plan B.

In terms of Canonical precedence, these facts and arguments being published in newspapers here at Rome and receiving no rebuttal for the space of 90 days thereafter, constitute canonical prove of the facts and conclusions and canonical tacit consent of all opponents.

At the same time, voices which are willing to be quoted in print, are increasingly found who insist Bergoglio is not the pope and that Benedict XVI never renounced the papacy.  This is a sea change. The momentum is now with the truth, not with the fake news hearsay.

Stunning were the revelations, too, that Cardinal Burke doubted the validity of the Renunciation from the first days following Feb. 11, 2013 and that he spoke openly of this to all his acquaintances at least until 2016.

Significant too was the independent film documentary, Il Messaggio nella Bottiglia, which explained in careful detail the historical fraud committed in Feb. 2013.  It has now been published with subtitles in Italian, English, Spanish and French, and is being distributed throughout the entire world to the Sacred Hierarchy and on multiple platforms.

But the final coup de grace came just the other day, when it was reported that even Archbishop Ganswein, the personal secretary of the Holy Father, cannot bring himself to publicly declare that Benedict XVI has ever identified Bergoglio as “the one and only pope”, even while he himself, calls both popes, and insists that Bergoglio is the only true pope.

The narrative which has foisted Bergoglio into the Papacy and sustained his claim is now totally destroyed. Like the waning health of the Argentine upstart, there is now nothing standing in the way of the full restoration of Pope Benedict: God’s call to Bergoglio to leave this life, will put an end to his imposture and leave a void in which there can be no rational or canonical basis not to recognize that Benedict XVI has always been the only true pope.

Why I think Paul VI and John Paul II are more likely damned, than Saints

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

On July 7, 2007, Pope Benedict XVI struck down one of the biggest lies and frauds of the post-conciliar era.  A lie which stood for nearly 33 years, unopposed by Popes Paul VI and John Paul II.*

That lie was perpetrated by the Congregation for Divine Worship, on October 28, 1974, when it declared that the new Missal of Paul VI obrogated — that is legally replaced — the former Missale Romanum in force since the time of Saint Pius V in the 16th century.

And that lie, was no small lie.

It was used to persecuted millions of Catholics for 33 years, without one word or peep from the Vatican.

And that was not only a lie, it was a lie in written form to sustain a fraud, namely, that Paul VI had used papal power, and not nude force, to alter the worship of the Roman Church.

And that fraud was not only a fraud in itself, but a sacrilege against Holy Mother Church and the Faithful of Christ. Because that fraud was used to deprive them of the immemorial Mass and undermine the faith, devotion, spirituality and personal religious traditions and practices and sentiments and prayer life of 100s of millions of Catholics.

In sum, this lie, was no small sin, but one of cosmic, Satanic proportions.

And for that reason, those who knew of it, had a duty to strike it down, regardless of their political agenda.

But neither Paul VI nor John Paul II, both of whom had long enough pontificates to do this, did this.

And to tolerate injustice, when with a single word you could bring injustice to an end, is the most knavish and disgraceful behavior in any human person, more so in a man, who has the natural vocation to be a father, and even more so in a man of God who receives a solemn and divine obligation to shepherd the flock of Christ entrusted to him.

There can be no excuse for such negligence. And though we cannot judge the person of the pope, who has an office which places him above the judgement of all men, we can judge the acts of popes, when the deviate from the moral norm.

This being the case, such a negligence it totally incompatible with Sainthood, as every sane Catholic can see. Because if it is a mortal sin to rob $20 from another man, who is poor, as Saint Alphonsus dei Liguori teaches, how much more is it a sin to rob the Roman Mass from the Faithful of the Roman Catholic Church throughout all the word, and this for 33 years!

The battle against Benedict XVI, according to many commentators, began in earnest with the publication of Summorum Pontificum.  Since February 2013, those who benefited most from that decree are the most glaringly ungrateful for the Holy Father’s justice. They even go so far as to condemn him, who restored their rights.

But I believe the justice of God on the last day will totally vindicate Pope Benedict XVI for this great act of rectification.  For God is Truth and all the servants of Truth find merit before His throne.

Contrariwise, what are we to think of Paul VI and John Paul II for this sin of omission which cried out to heaven for 33 years.

I believe it is not improbable to conclude, that having never rectified it, and having had the time to do so, they could not possibly have died as friends of the God of Truth and Justice, Who is the Good Shepherd, Who gave His life for His sheep.

This consideration becomes more probable, when we reflect on the truth that the Mass comes from Christ, through the Hands of the Apostles and is protected and enriched through the working of the Holy Ghost and the Saints.  Therefore, the magnitude of pride and presumption and disdain that you have to muster in your heart to attack it and replace it with the mealy and distorted handiwork of a committee is extraordinary and monstrous, and cannot be reconciled with all that the Faith teaches us about how God regards those who attack His handiworks.

The above consideration is not invalidated by acts of canonization by someone who has no claim to the papacy himself.* Indeed, when the godless canonize anyone, we cannot be sure that they do it for honest motives, they may be merely revering the acts of other godless men.

Psyop tactics being used by the Globalists to sustain their narrative

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

Since FromRome.Info is an independent website not subject to globalist control, it can publish articles which criticize their project and dismantle their narrative. And since a recent video which I produced has gotten more than 130,000 views on FromRome.info alone, and many more on other platforms where it has now been copied, FromRome.Info has begun to be targeted by experts in psyop warfare.

Observing their tactics and taking the proper response, which is simply to erase their comment and never reply, I want however to share what I have learned with the general public, so that you too can learn how to counter their tactics.

Globalist Assets

First, it is a known fact that the UK Government has repurposed their anti-terrorist cyber warfare unit against those who attack the Globalist narrative. This is because the UK Govt is completely controlled by the Pilgrim Society, one of the leading Globalist Masonic groups. — The UK Govt is also responsible for creating global Islamic terrorism, by supporting Al Quaeda and ISIS, so that while we were looking the other way, they could promote a surveillance state to prepare for the Plandemic, something which was hatched nearly a century ago, if we are to believe Adolf Hitler, who said his party would return as a religion in 2019. And we must assume that the US, French and German Governments, which are controlled completed by the Masonic Lodges of New York City, Parish and Berlin, are doing the same thing.

Globalist objectives

Second, the goal of the Globalists, we must remember, is what Klaus Schwab announced in this book on the Fourth Industrial Revolution:

  1. Kill all but 1 billion people, leaving alive 500 million Chinese and Japanese who are peoples used to tyranny.
  2. Do this by a Vaccination program, organized famines, and wars “which we will incite”.

How they are achieving their objective with the Vaxx

For this reason, the mad rush to vaccinate everyone is not merely a panic, it’s planned and a central component.  Numerous reports have noted that the Vaxx will sterilize men and women, contains the deadly toxic spike protein, and is 99% graphene oxide which is so toxic, it would only be added to your body to kill you. Also vaccines for coronaviruses kill their patients by antibody priming, in which your body is excessively prepared to defend against another similar infection and when infected kills you by producing to many effects, such as fever mucous, etc., which would normally help fight an infection.

Added to this is the other deadly side-effect, that a mRNA therapy designed to program your immune system to defend against one pathogen or toxin, will cause an unnatural balance in your immune system and thus make it much more difficult for your system to defend against other pathogens.  This is already being seen in Israel, where in the heat of summer, thousands are getting sick from common colds which never before manifested in summer, since the human body can so easily defend against them in that season.

Agenda for Globalist Pysop program

So for all these reasons, the Globalist psyop has a lot to do to maintain the narrative.

  • Their first target is to attack the experts who are talking.
  • Their second target is to censor all social media.
  • Their third target is to pull the plug on the most influential websites if they can.
  • Their fourth target is to attack the credibility of websites which begin to have an influential role in disseminating any of the above information or sites.

And this is the only reason, I believe, that I have seen several new kinds of trolls here at FromRome.Info in just the last 2 weeks.

And these trolls, have exhibited the following tactical methods:

  1. Feigning an email of an expert and demanding a news story be removed from this website.
  2. Claiming a news story is unreliable or false and demanding it be removed.
  3. Claiming that part of a story is false or one of the speakers is unreliable.
  4. Claiming that a speaker does not have the credentials claimed.
  5. Praising part of a news story but calumniating another part of it.
  6. Demanding that a site like FromRome.Info which republishes information, respond to technical or expert questions which rightfully should be addressed to experts.
  7. Insisting that news stories contain exaggerations or misrepresentations.
  8. Denying 2+2=4 and other similar things, in any news story and insisting that those who can think are exaggerating or jumping to conclusions.
  9. Insulting the publisher by personal attacks, designed to prick vanity and pride and incite an excessive public response. The more outrageous the attack, the more they think it will succeed.

My counsel regarding these kinds of attacks is this:

The only way to respond to these is normally only by simply erasing their emails or comments.

Some of these who practice n. 8 merit a published strong rebuke, but do not waste your time with all of them. Do not change your approach to publishing news and reposting articles. Remember, if you repost or republish, you are not obliged to know all the facts, since you are only reporting that it is newsworthy that another site has published an article or video about this topic.

I highly recommend, taking pleasure in one thing: erasing comments by those engaged in one of the above 9 tactics. Acquire this habit and it will make your day, when you have to erase more comments than usual. Maintain a high quality of comment at your site by approving only the best ones or only those by well-behaved individuals, and definitely do not set your site to publish all comments, or else the pysops will high-jack your good work and use it for their goals.

Finally, do what you do for the truth, not for any egotistic goal, and you will remain free from such manipulation.

So beware of Globalist pysopers and gas lighters. They are out there, but you will not see their comments on FromRome.Info because I do not tolerate their kind of trash.

Here, at FromRome.Info, they have joust with a student of Scholastic Theology, and they cannot hope to win in that fight.

Father Z’s Dares Righteousness but needs some major guidance

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

Father John Zuhlsdorf, who is known on the Net simply as, “Father Z”, from his famous blog by the same name, did something the other day which only a handful of Catholic priests have dared to do in the last 8 years: he spoke publicly about the controversy over the “resignation” of Pope Benedict XVI.

His post is entitled, “The Question of Two Pope Bothers a lot of people. Some Thoughts” and it was published on June 29, 2021.

I know at least 4 priests who would not have the courage, even though they privately recognize Benedict XVI as the true pope.

And so, for that daring, Father Zuhlsdorft deserves praise and applause from all Catholics everywhere.

We live in a time when the clergy, alas, have fallen nearly totally silent about the truths of the Faith and about the errors and falsehoods of our day. And of the greatest of these errors is that which regards understanding what happened — or, as Ann Barnhardt rightly says in a more correct language, what did NOT happen — on Feb. 11, 2013, in the Sala Clementina, from approximately 11:30 AM local time until about 11:40 P.M..

The Vatican announced that Benedict XVI had resigned. Benedict XVI three years later, in his official biography interview by Peter Seewald, however, would explicitly deny that he had abdicated. In other words, he is still the pope, but some sort of revolution or coup d’etat has taken place at the Vatican. A thing which is undeniable by all, since there are two “Popes” at the Vatican.

But since Father Zuhlsdorf has publicly opined upon the matter, and since he has in true humility admitted, as a prologue, that he is not an expert on the controversy, I will make some comments here about what I see are the grave errors which pepper his discussion and keep anyone reading it from arriving at a certain and true conclusion regarding which is the true pope.

Where Father Hunwicke got mislead

Father Zuhlsdorf opens by citing a historical example of a case in which there were two popes, believing by such reference to obtain some light on how to explain the current situation.  So he cites another rather well known Catholic priest blogger, Father Hunwicke, a convert, who lives in the United Kingdom.

Here I follow the citation of Father Zuhlsdorf:

Over at his splendid blog, Fr. John Hunwicke had an engaging piece provoked by the whirling of your planet back to the annual Feast of St. Silverius, Pope and Martyr (+537).

Fr. H used this occasion to look into a question which vexes many a thoughtful Catholic these days: two popes at the same time.  Possible?  Fact: Francis is going around doing pope things while Benedict lives in the Vatican Gardens still looking a lot like The Pope.  It’s a head-scratcher.

NB: Some people wave away questions about “two popes” or an invalid resignation.  To my mind, it is wrong-headed to gloss over hard questions that vex people, to turn a blind eye to them and whistle a happy tune with fingers deep into one’s ears.  There are people who are really upset by this situation.  We have an obligation to tackle these questions head on in order to put people at ease about them.   Let’s do that.

Back to Fr Hunwicke’s piece.

Background first:  In 537, the Byzantine general Flavius Belisarius entered Rome and deposed Pope Silverius who had been elected the previous year.  Belisarius brought in his own guy, Vigilius, and made him Pope while Silverius was still alive (for a few months, at least).  So, who was the real Pope?

Father Zuhlsdorf’s recourse to a historical example seems a reasonable way to proceed. But I submit that it is colored by the fact that he has grown up in the United States and come to believe that the Common Law principle of precedent is a good principle to apply in a dubious legal case of two popes.

Here Father gets it completely wrong in his presumption. Because the Roman Church has always chosen Roman Law not Common Law — which by the way did not even exist for some 800 years after the faith came to Rome — as Her legal system.  In Roman law, precedent has nearly no worth. What matters is what is the statuary law at the time a dispute arises, not what happened in past cases when the laws where different.

And such is the case of the example brought up by Father Hunwicke. Thus, whatever happened in that case, simply has no bearing whatsoever in regard to a solution in the present case.  This is true because in the present case, the laws which bear on determining whether the renunciation of Pope Benedict XVI was valid or not, were promulgated in 1983 in the New Code, which expressly abrogated and obrogated all past laws. Whereas, the case cited by Father Hunwicke took place some 1400 years before when there were no canons or laws regarding papal resignations, forced or otherwise.

Dom Guéranger’s quip is worthless and misleading in this debate

Now, in a controversy over law or rights, it is important to cite authorities. No one denies that. But the value of the authority depends on whether he has said anything pertinent to the debate.

Now there is no doubt that Dom Prosper Guéranger is a man worth citing. But since he died before the canons of the Church were codified in 1917 by Pope Benedict XV, he obviously approached the problem of a papal schism differently than we do today.  He had to, because there was no law to appeal to.

So citing this very learned Benedictine, as Father Zuhlsdorf does in citing Father Hunwicke, is again simply useless, even if the argument sounds good:

Hunwicke provides something from dom Gueranger concerning Silverius and Vigilius (my emphases):

“The inevitable play of human passions, interfering in the election of the Vicar of Christ, may perchance for a while render uncertain the transmission of spiritual power. But when it is proved that the Church … acknowledges in the person of a certain pope, until then doubtful, the true Sovereign Pontiff, this her very recognition is a proof that, from that moment at least, the occupant of the Apostolic See is as such invested by God himself.”

Do you get that?   No matter how strange a path by which some fellow became the one with his “bum in the chair”, when “the Church” acknowledges him, then he is the legitimate Pope.

It is simply useless, because we cannot pretend today that there is no law determining whether Pope Benedict XVI’s resignation is valid or not or makes him no longer the pope or not!  Nearly all who claim Bergoglio is the pope do entertain such a pretense, because if you don’t then you have to recognize that the law gives you no leg to stand on.

But that is not the only error, implicit in the citation of Dom Guéranger. Because, when we cannot know the facts of a case or the moral or legal principles by which it can be solved with certitude, we are forced to resort to reflex principles which indicate a probable or more probable solution.

So Dom Guéranger was right to resort to a reflex principle in a case in which he could not have known the facts well or personally. But we are wrong to do so, since we can easily have the facts of the case with certitude and can easily find the code of canon law in Latin which sets out the principles by which we can arrive with certitude at the correct answer.

A Shameful error in reading Latin

Now if anyone sees the Latin term, which is key in this controversy, and mistranslates it as office — for wont of a better term — I as a Latinist can excuse him, because I have done the same. But since Father Zuhlsdorf is rather famous for his Latinity, I will have to say that when he renders munus as office, it is a shameful error.

Admittedly Father Zuhlsdorf claims no expertise in this debate, and so perhaps does not know that Canon 17 explains how to understand the word munus, but after all that has been written, which is not hard to find on the internet, it is simply irresponsible to cite a translation of munus as office without at least pointing out the translation is wrong or insufficient to understand this controversy.

For if munus meant office, then in canon 145 §1, the Code would not define officium as a munus, under a certain sort of specification. It would simply say they mean the same thing. But it does not, therefore, in the mind of the legislator we must understand, as Canon 17 requires us, that the words do NOT mean the same thing.

And if you want to know what munus means, you can avail yourself of the only academic paper every submitted in a Conference at Rome, which followed the norm of canon 17 to discover what it means. And you can read it here. It was delivered 21 months ago and has never been refuted by anyone, anywhere.

Father Zuhlsdorf then wanders into quacksand

At this point, the learned Father Zuhlsdorf, who evidently does not know the principles of Canon Law, wanders off into speculating that the Office of the Pope can be separated from the Office of the Bishop of Rome.

This speculation has found favor and pleasure among some who are participating in this debate. But out of respect for them, I will not mention them by name.

Suffice it to say, that the office of Peter cannot be separated from the Bishopric of Rome, when both are understood properly, that is, according to the correct understanding of their terms.  We can know this with certainty, because Vatican I infallibly declared that the Pope has no authority over the deposit of the Faith. And the Deposit of the Faith includes Apostolic Tradition. Apostolic Tradition means what the Apostles handed down, left to us, for our instruction.  And obviously the office of St. Peter was left to the Church of Rome BY THE APOSTLE PETER. Hence it cannot be alienated from it by anyone.

To say otherwise is simple heresy. For it implies that Apostolic Tradition can be overthrown, corrected or changed. Now that is the doctrine of Bergoglio (e. g., in regard to the Our Father), but it is not Catholic.

And to imply that Pope Benedict XVI intended that, is not only unsubstantiated by any explicit statement, but requires a reading of his Declaratio of Feb. 11, 2013 which is artificial and strained at the best, and totally imaginary at the worst.

You do not have to play games of theological speculation, to find out whether the renunciation of Pope Benedict XVI is valid or not.  Simply read canon 332 and the text of the Declaratio and it is clear enough, if you want to see it, and if you are not a priest who is naming Bergoglio as the pope in the canon of the mass.

In Conclusion

Father Zuhlsdorf’s exposition of the controversy does contain some accurate parts, where he lays out the basic argument for the invalidity of the Declaratio to cause Benedict XVI to no longer be pope.

But for the most part his exposition is rambling and confusing and seems inconclusive.

I object strongly at his blasphemy of the Holy Ghost, in saying that that Divine Person might rig a papal election with the intent of giving us a bad pope.  God cannot will evil. To say so, is to call God the Devil.

And I demure at the entire post by Father Zuhlsdorf, because I think that if a priest open his mouth, he should at least give clear doctrine and not muddle the waters.

But what is lacking is grave also in this, that Father seems to think, by his noticeable omission, that if a priest names someone he doubts is the pope in the Canon of the Mass that he is not gravely sinning, or that if he names someone whom God knows is not the pope, he is not gravely sinning.  This omission in the article is very shocking, because it pretends to a form of Catholicism in which the manner of the offering of the Most Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is one which is acceptable to God when it is rubrically correct, regardless of whom it is offered in communion with, a true or false pope. And that makes a mockery of the Divine Majesty.

Pastor’s Battle with Bishop proves once again Benedict XVI is still the pope

Commentary by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

Once again, the course of the daily news proves that Pope Benedict XVI is still the pope and Bergoglio a usurper, raging heretic, apostate, schismatic and false prophet. You just cannot NOT see it, if you still have eyes to see.

But if you have taken the mark of the beast, which is not only the Vaccine, but anything whereby in the taking of it you REJECT all truth and all the evidence of reality; WELL, then, you will not SAY you see it, simply because you do not want to condemn yourself for your damnable apostasy from the truth.

But for the children of the light, who rejoice in every truth, because God the Truth has adopted them unto an eternal kingdom, these are the pearls of great price which we rejoice to find in the daily news.

And a shining pear it is, today, that we glean from the news of Father James Parker’s righteous battle against the Most. Rev. David James Malloy, Bishop of Rockford Diocese, in the State of Illinois.  Msgr. Malloy was appointed by Pope Benedict XVI, but alas like so many “Bergoglio is definitely the pope Cardinals, Bishops, and other clerical frauds”, he thinks that if you have been given a munus in the Church, it can be taken from you by an extra-legal procedure, that is, by force, fraud, and public calumny and defamation.

This is how the St. Gallen Mafia ousted Pope Benedict XVI, who when they demanded his resignation by years of harassment, insults and finally even by bank shenanigans, he tendered a renunciation of ministry — a retirement — rather than a resignation or renunciation, thus keeping the Petrine munus, which no living creature can take from him. But they ignore all the law, though they recognized the renunciation was invalid from the start, and went forward an elected an apostate, Antipope. And this has been the cause of their doom. But for those who now see what really happened, it has been the cause of unmasking all the corruption in the Church, which is the spirit of lawlessness forcing itself upon Her members by a class of clerics who are experts at raping the innocent, spiritually, psychologically and physically.

So too with Father James Parker, Pastor of Holy Cross Catholic Church, in Batavia, Illinois.

Father Parker was appointed pastor — which in Canon law is explicitly designated as a munus — of Holy Cross Parish without any specified term limit.  That is, for life.

The Bishop may have not realized his oversight in omitting a term of service, but the effect being tacitly conceded after 90 days, became a fact of right. And now Father Parker CANNOT be removed from the office and duty of pastor by any extra-canonical means. However so much his Bishop may desire it.

That might be frustrating for the Bishop.

But Father Parker is 100% in his right.

But what is more, Father Parker rightly understands that by holding the munus of the pastorate, he is not only in his right, he is divinely obligated in the sight of the Living God to keep caring for his flock.

The Holy Spirit concurs with Father Parker, whose flock has donated already nearly $100,000 for his legal defense.  Father says that he has consulted legal experts in Rome who say he has every right to stay his ground.

Would to God that such legal experts apply the same canonical rationale to Pope Benedict XVI, whose friends in the hierarchy here at Rome have proven his worst enemies by their silence and villainous sloth in defending his rights and prerogatives.  He too has received a munus without a term limit. Therefore, equity and honesty demand that all recognize that it too cannot be taken from him by an extra-legal procedure, even if, in his meekness, he has allowed them to trample upon it.

Viganò Gives Battle Cry against Great Reset, from the wrong side of the Lines

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

June 1, 2021 — Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò has given a remarkably complete critique of the Great Reset during his recent talk at a Venice Conference on the matter, hosted by the Italian Philosopher Francesco Lamendola.*  The talk in Italian was recently translated into English and has been published by Catholic Family News. You can read it here.

There is no denying that Archbishop Viganò has been the instrumental cause of many Catholics who hold fast to Bergoglio to begin to doubt, criticize and oppose the Great Reset.

So much have these Catholics been intellectually and morally part of the system of control or under that system of control, that the exclamations of the Archbishop in these weeks are met with acclamation which a true leader on the issue would merit.

They call the Archbishop a “voice in the wilderness” or “the only one who is speaking the truth”, or the “only Bishop who is denouncing the Great Reset”.

For those who do not know what has been going on for the last 18 months, because they have not been zealous to follow the news from trusted sources, but rather have been zealous to buckle down and comply with their Bergoglian Bishop and Globalist political leaders, such acclamations have their sense.

But the truth is that Archbishop Viganò is a Johnny come lately, and he has not yet even changed sides in this battle.

Indeed, the Archbishop has not only made some questionable alliances with arguably Masonic entities, but still refuses obedience to the norms of Canon Law regarding who is and who is not the Pope, preferring to sustain the party of the Globalist Bergoglio, against the Catholic Benedict XVI.

First, the Archbishop undertook a public media campaign which was a “touch all the bases and return home” strategy which is the hallmark of self serving politicians. According to this strategy, while not officially breaking from the ruling party, you speak and visit all the opposition to give them the false hope that you are now on their side, but in the end you return to stand at the right hand of the ruling elites.  The Archbishop did this in the summer of 2018, when he called Bergoglio to resign. But just this past Winter, Viganò insisted that Bergoglio is the Pope and it is divisive to question that!

To those who are really paying attention, the self-contradictions do not end there.

His writings in English are published by Angelico Press, notorious for promoting among Catholics spiritism and divination, the mixture of the occult into Christian Family life.

He wrote the political leader of the Skull and Bones Masonic Lodge Faction in the USA, Donald Trump, and was immediately accorded a personal recommendation by the President — a thing that no Catholic Bishop in U. S. history was ever accorded.

And he studiously refuses to speak in person or via correspondence with anyone versed in the canonical arguments that Benedict XVI is the true pope, despite the fact that Pope Benedict XVI is the one who drew him out of an obscure career in the Vatican Secretary of State to make him Secretary of the Vatican State Governorate and subsequently, Apostolic Nuncio to the United States, arguably the most important foreign post in the Vatican diplomatic staff.

He has repeatedly attacked and insulted not only the Catholic Church, blaming Her for sins, but also the Catholic Faithful for not opposing Vatican II.  In the first, he transgressed a rule of faith, whereby Catholic never attribute sin to the Bride of Christ. In the second, his comments are exceedingly cruel, seeing that the Catholic Faithful obediently accepted Vatican II precisely because of the actions and silence of the clergy, not excluding his own.  But both are remarkable forms of despicable clericalism which refuses to admit that the chief problem in the Church today is clerical corruption and chiefly in the Vatican, where he has worked for several decades.

To shout out a battle cry is a good an honorable thing, when you are standing on the right side of the Battle lines. But to do so, from the enemies’ Camp, is at least disingenuous, and at most a diabolic trick of deception to disarm your allies’ enemies.

The story has not ended, and is still in act. But those of us who are Catholics from the cradle and who know that sincerity only has value with fidelity, are finding it more and more incredible that Viganò’s words and actions remain in stark contradiction.

Credibility begins not with speaking, but with action. You have to switch sides in this war, and stand with Christ and His people, against the Globalists and the Bank of International Settlements, in Basel Switzerland, through which they rule the world.
