40 Days of Prayer against the Church of Darkness: Day 1

Video of Midnight, January 28-29th, 2020 A.D., Saint Mary Major’s Rome. (Recorded)

In the year of Our Lord 1820, God revealed to Bl. Anne Catherine Emmerich that the Church of Rome would one day be attacked from within. That there would be two popes: one false and dark, who strove to found a new Religion which would be the home of every heretic and apostate: one true and aged, who would be paralyzed by inaction and silence.

To drive the Church of Darkness out of the Church of Rome, it was revealed to her that Our Lady asked the faithful to gather at Midnight in front of the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore, here at Rome, and pray with arms outstretched, in the form of the Cross, for the space of at least 3 Our Fathers.

PLEASE NOTE:  That until From Rome Info Video Channel at Youtube gets 1000 subscribers, it will NOT be able to broadcast the Nightly Prayers Live. So let all who are devoted to Jesus Christ, Our Lady and Bl. Ann Catherine Emmerich know that they need to urge subscriptions to this channel, so that we can promote the fulfillment of Our Lady’s Request for Her Heavenly-Approved prayer solution to the present Crisis in the Church.

The Enemies of Pope Benedict XVI

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

What really has been going on in the Church since the reign of Pius XII? — And what really was going on in the Church during the reign of Pope Benedict XVI?  These questions raise themselves in the mind of those who seek an explanation for Vatican II and the coup d’etat which drove  Pope Benedict XVI from power in February of 2013.

I have previously written about that Coup d’etat in my article entitled, The Vatican Coup d’etat of February 2013. And in my articles, entitled, Pope Benedict’s Forced Abdication, The Imprisonment of Pope Benedict XVI and How Benedict has defeated ‘Francis’. All of which should be read to better understand what I am about to say here.

Also, before reading here, see my article on Facts vs. Conjecture, so you can better understand what I am about to say.

The House of Cardinal Bertone

One of the major factions in the Roman Curia is the House of Cardinal Tarcisio PIetro Evasio Bertone, that is, the group of Cardinals and Bishops of whom he is the principal consecrator or co-consecrator. You can see the entire list, in the right column of his page at Catholic-Hierarchy.org. He was Pope Benedict XVI’s replacement for Cardinal Sodano in the all important post of Secretary of State, a position to which he was promoted on September 15, 2006, the Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows.

His influence even today is being felt on account of the members of his faction: Cardinal Parolo and Archbishop Gänswein, whom he co-consecrated in 2009 and 2013 respectively.

During the recent Book Flap, no less than Archbishop Viganò testified that Archbishop Gänswein, who was at the time of Pope Benedict XVI’s election as Roman Pontiff, a mere priest secretary, had a radical change in character following Benedict’s election as the Vicar of Christ (See FromRome.Info’s authorized English translation of Viganò’s testimony, here). He went from being a secretary who facilitated communication with Cardinal Ratzinger to being a control valve for information arriving in the hands of Pope Benedict. Marco Tosatti was given information to the contrary, however.

The Book Flap as well as the angry phone call I got from Archbishop Gänswein made me realize that we need to re-evaluate the Archbishop’s role in the history of Pope Benedict’s Pontificate. I discussed that in my article for investigative journalists, here.

I have speculated that on account of the failure of the St. Gallen Mafia to secure the papacy for Bergoglio in the legitimate conclave of 2005, they became convinced that it was necessary to apply pressure upon Benedict XVI to resign. I have reported that Gänswein himself seems to refer to a pact in the Conclave of 2005, whereby Ratzinger’s ascension to the Papal Throne was secured with a promise of resignation in the near future.

This pressure may have been applied only by the St. Gallen Mafia and members of the House of Rampolla del Tindaro. However, they may have convinced other factions to join in this control on account of agreements for votes in the Conclave.

One line of investigation is whether one of those other factions was none other than the House of Cardinal Bertone.

According to sources who have spoken to FromRome.Info, the agreement in the Conclave was that Pope Benedict XVI would reign for 5 years, until 2010, and then abdicate. The House of Cardinal Bertone was a signatory, as it were, on this pact.

As can be seen from the episcopal lineage of Cardinal Bertone, his co-consecrators were each from two different factions: The House of Rampolla del Tindaro and the House of Saint Pius X. A clear choice of a man who wanted to keep his career options open in the future, by bridging or functioning as a middle-man between irreconcilable factions.

According to this reconstruction, Cardinal Bertone was urged as the new Secretary of State to replace Cardinal Sodano, who was out of favor with Pope Benedict XVI on account of what he had learned as Cardinal in the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith for concealing the moral depravity of Father Maciel of the Legionaires of Christ and other institutes. This has been widely reported.

Little did Pope Benedict XVI know, however, that it was perhaps already at this time that Bertone was in agreement with Bergoglio about the change of power. The interference and obstacles grew, and when Benedict was asked to resign in 2010, and refused, open warfare began.

The Persecution of Pope Benedict XVI

First, beginning in 2006, the year Bertone became Secretary of State, there was organized in Austria and then in Germany (where the House of Rampolla had deep roots) a movement called the Pfarrer Initiative (Pastor’s Initiative).

In 2011, they circulated a petition among hundreds of priests demanding changes in the Catholic Religion which were fundamental and intolerable: married clergy and women priests. They threatened schism if they were not heard.  The Vienna Review, on Dec. 1, 2011, quoted in part their manifesto:

They [the priests] want to be accepted as the intermediaries between God and the people, yet “Jesus was a layman, and he made no effort to install a clerical class…he encouraged people to confront God on their own. Hence communion is enacted by a parish community and a leader together. While according to current Church doctrine, this leader has to be an ordained priest, there is no reason that it should stay that way. “There needs to be a revival of the importance of the parish for the celebration of communion.

The group which called their petition a “Call to disobedience” ( Aufruf zum Ungehorsam) was lead by Father Helmut Schueller, former Vicar General of Cardinal Christopher Schoenborn, of Vienna, a key member of “Team Bergoglio” and a Rampolla House member. He went on a tour in 2012 to spread the rebellion.

But even before the tour, Pope Benedict XVI made an apostolic visit to Germany to quell rising resentment among the German Episcopate to his resistance to the agenda of the movement. In a stunning reproof, numerous Bishops refused to shake the Pope’s hand on camera. Though denied by many news outlets, the proof is in the seeing:

Threats of Assasination

At the same time in February of 2012, the pro-Bergoglian Mass Media in Europe spread the rumor that if Benedict XVI did not resign within 12 months he would be assassinated. This rumor was spread in the United Kingdom, Italy and Colombia, all bases of power of the St. Gallen Mafia.

In response it appears that Cardinal Walter Brandmüller called for severe punishments on this group in an editorial in 2012, which perhaps reflects the counsel he gave Pope Benedict XVI on this matter from the beginning.

Pope Benedict XVI stood his ground, and did not cave. Father Schueller received a slap on the hand, as it were, in 2012, according to a report by Reuters in what appears to be an diplomatic attempt to diffuse the confrontation without ceding on principles. However, that a St. Gallen Mafia protege was the key figure in this pressure placed upon Pope Benedict was no coincidence.

Vatileaks as a tool of psychological disruption

However, at about the same time as the Austrian Protest was gaining steam, we know from published reports on the Vatileaks scandal, that the private Butler of Pope Benedict XVI began to borrow and copy sensitive correspondence of the Pope from the desk of Father Gänswein, in what would come to be called the Vatileaks Scandal.

What makes this fact worthy of note is, that the collaborator with the Butler in the distribution of the correspondence was a woman of a rather notorious character who had ties with the St. Gallen Mafia. Among the letters which were leaked, were those of Archbishop Viganò complaining about financial corruption at the Vatican (Documents which at least in their first delivery never made it into the hands of the Pope, according to the testimony of Viganò, published here at FromRome.Info). In an attempt to silence one of the financial investigators, Ettore Gotti Tedeschi, he was fired without Pope Benedict XVI’s consent, according to his own testimony of what Cardinal would tell him on Feb. 7, 2013.

The news of the thefts was published on Italian TV in January of 2012. Pope Benedict XVI initiated an investigation in March of the same year. He could not bring himself to understand who among those so intimate to him had betrayed him.

The financial corruption investigation eventually revealed other things, such as unexplained double payments for the renovations of an apartment used by Cardinal Bertone. The removal of Tedeschi and Pope Benedict, who began the investigations as a result of Vatileaks, was thus a political necessity for a lot of people.

Perhaps to protect himself in the future after the abdication, and as an act of gratitude for service, Cardinal Bertone was one of Father Ganswein’s co-consecrators, when Pope Benedict XVI made him an Archbishop on January 7, 2013. His appointment in the previous December as Head of the Pontifical Household sealed his control over Pope Benedict after any abdication he might make.

Finally, according to my source, the concept of “Pope Emeritus” was not the invention of Pope Benedict, but was created by the new Archbishop to conceal the failed renunciation, the invalidity of which no one around Pope Benedict XVI noticed or admitted before it was too late, for Pope Benedict had check-mated them all!

This title also serves to keep Benedict under the control of the Archbishop, instead of allowing him to return home to Bavaria, a thing which the Pope himself recently admitted in the Bavarian State TV documentary about himself, entitled, Ein Besuch bei Papst Benedikt XVI. em. Klein Bayern im Vatikan.

Trad Inc. is hiding something Monstrous

By Br. Alexis Bugnolo

The petition to President Trump is something every human being can agree with, whether Catholic or not. All you have to agree with is a basic concept of patient’s rights and care for all the elderly, even if they be Pope Benedict XVI.

If you have not yet signed, please do! — Here is the link:

https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/petition-president-trump-advocate-protection-all-elderly-including-pope-benedict-xvi

So far 791 have signed. Share it on Social Media with everyone. Do not wait or hesitate. The very life of Pope Benedict might be at risk! This is obvious.

But Trad Inc., which has been informed about this petition 10 days ago, does not agree. They have censored the news of its existence to prevent Catholics from signing it.

There is only one sane conclusion: Trad Inc. is hiding something monstrous about their motivation to insist Bergoglio is the pope and that Pope Benedict is Joseph Ratzinger.

I say, “monstrous” because such a motivation must be very very evil, if it leads you to work to prevent Catholics from expressing their faith on the most basic question of human rights and charity for the elderly and needy.

Maybe, this monstrous thing, is that they are not operating on Catholic principles anymore, but have accepted some sort of political ideology, which allies with Bergoglio and refuses to give any assistance to his enemies?

In recent days, we have seen 2 major attacks on Pope Benedict XVI from Trad Inc.. There seems to be a pattern here. Does it have to do with big money coming out of Eastern Switzerland or Argentina?

I know my history of the Second World War, as I read William Shirer’s, The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, when I was 16. And I recall that Munich was the capital and origin of the Nazi party. Coincidences are fascinating. Just saying.

Frank Walker: Bergoglians punish to make us keep quiet about their revolution

https://youtu.be/onigSion_7Q

Don’t waste your time with any media outlets which tell you to shut up and accept Bergoglio. Here is the truth about the daily news, in all its grizzly detail.

As always, if you want the truth, you need to support those who speak it. Remember to support Mr. Walker through his YouTube page or Canon212.com with a generous donation.

How Bergoglo has converted Trads to attack his enemies

By Br. Alexis Bugnolo

Spanish translation at Gloria.TV

Many are of the opinion that Bergoglio is not the Anti-Christ, but his ability to convert so many over to serve his evil agenda is remarkable, if not preternaturally diabolic.

The latest example is the  Annual Letter from Radio Spada, a Traditionalist Radio Apostolate here in Italy. They join the attack with FSSPX.NEWS against the Holy Father, Pope Benedict, but they do not hide their animus, they are openly vicious.

Their main argument can be found here. They illustrate it with a picture of the Holy Father wearing a Sombrero. I guess that is supposed to make him look ridiculous. But only a racist from Eastern Switzerland would think such a thing, since a Sombrero is a traditional hat for respectable persons in Mexico and has been worn by Catholic laymen and clergy for centuries, including Saints and Blesseds of the Church before Vatican II.

The article, if you can imagine, goes down hill from there: attack, attack, attack.  Not Bergoglio but Benedict. The Author bravely signs his name as Miguel.

His first argument is that, even if a person says the truth, you should distance yourself from his profession if you disagree with his politics.  This is a tactic which has nothing at all to do with the Gospel, but for Miguel, it is the essence of religion, evidently.  I recall what Our Lord said, when the Apostles faulted others for using the Name of Jesus to exorcise.  I think He said He approved of what they did.

Second, he argues that since the publicity on the book presents Pope Benedict XVI as having renounced the papacy, then that means he has renounced the papacy.  Here we have the direct opposite hermeneutic as before.  In the first argument, you should never believe your political enemy even when he says the truth, when your enemy is Pope Benedict. But now, Miguel cites Bergoglian news media as making a claim against Benedict and he takes it as Gospel truth, more authoritative than canon law. So we should not believe the truth told by someone we do not like, but we should believe the truth of someone we do not like. Which is it?

Third, he claims that the question of Celibacy is relatively a minor issue, and not much fuss should be paid to it. If Miguel claims to be a trad, I cannot see what Tradition he is upholding….

Fourth, he claims the entire Book Flap was created to deceive, that they are really all in agreement about abolishing Celibacy.  I won’t comment on this, as it is patently absurd to think that Cardinal Sarah was publicly attacked by Archbishop Ganswein as part of a pre-planned theatre.

Fifth, after citing a long passage from Saint Pius X, he implies that the Saint would have condemned both authors of the Book as modernists.

In fine, Miguel closes with the most vicious attack of them all (I paraphrase): Pope Benedict has resigned. He promised to remain silent, but he won’t shut up! He is gravely damaging the Church by making these interventions just as he has gravely damaged the Church by the concept of a pope emeritus. — I do not know which script Miguel is reading from, but it sounds like something Cardinal Parolin may have given him to read.

Where do I begin to unwrap such nonsense? Uhm. If there is no such thing as pope emeritus, then Pope Benedict XVI is not an emeritus, but still the pope, because the title pope emeritus means he still holds the dignity of the pope, just like Professor Emeritus means that you still enjoy the dignity of a professor.  And if he still holds the dignity, then he is still the Pope, because there can be no papal succession unless the first guy renounces EVERYTHING. Hence Bergoglio was never pope, and you, Miguel, have just committed a most diabolic act of perfidy against the Roman Pontiff, Christ’s Vicar on Earth!

The Facade of the Aggiornamento has fallen!

By Br Alexis Bugnolo

For 50 years we have been preached to on a weekly basis that what the Church needs is the Aggiornamento: to get away from the rigorous idea that the Church should be run according to “medieval” ideas of discipline.

But, now that Bergoglio has openly declared his intentions to found a New Religion and dump Catholicism, the mask has fallen: if you disagree, you are fired. If you publicly deny he is the pope, you are excommunicated — in Don Minutella’s case a double excommunication.

Here at Rome one member of the faithful was declared excommunicated by his pastor, who claimed authority to do so on account of a phone call to the Secretary of State at the Vatican. — No you cannot make this up: excommunications by telephone. What’s next, an App for instant ex-communications?

What ever happened with the Holy Office? — Discipline was evil when it was directed against true heretics and schismatics and perverts, no?

But no more…   welcome to the False Church of Diabolic penalties. What is next, Auto da Haeresia’s?

We have to recognize that the entire Catholic World has been played for fools by all this talk of Aggiornamento. It appears now to have been simply a Marxist trick to break down the Church from within, in view of disposing us to accept the Apostasy which has come upon us.

Cardinal Bassetti: If you don’t like Bergoglio, get out of the Church!

 

By Br. Alexis Bugnolo

The news is so shocking that it seems unbelievable. So I will simply translate what Cardinal Basetti, President of the Italian Bishops’ Conference said 2 days ago at Perugia, in his home Diocese on the occasion of the Feast of St. Francis des Sales, patron of journalists. After a number of questions critical of Pope Francis, he lost his patience and burst out saying…  well you read it for yourself:

According to Il Messaggero, on January 25, 2020:

If anyone does not like this Pope, let him say so, because he is free to take another road. It’s O.K. to criticize, but not destructive criticism.

There are too many who speak of the Pope and to one of them I said:  Go become a Lutheran, if the Catholic Church is not right for you, if this Barque is too small.

According to ANSA, in their report on the same day, Cardinal Bassetti added these words at the end:

Excuse me for the outburst, but the objective of everyone should be that of seeking answers for the good of the Church and humanity.

It is clear that there is a schismatic and heretical spirit in the Church, but it is also clear now, where it is coming from and where it is not found.

Even Antonio Socci is outraged at his behavior, and says it amounts to a complete Marxist redefinition of the Church. His tweet below says:  Bassetti is nervous because Bergoglio wants to replace him with Cardinal Tortellino. He himself has not been entirely submissive to the South American Head. For the Bishops, absolute fidelity to the Head has already substituted fidelity to Christ. — Socci calls Cardinal Zuppi of Bologna, “Cardinal Tortellino” because he banned the traditional Tortellini for a Diocesan feast, because, since it contained pork, it might offend Muslims.

SSPX reluctant to fault Bergoglio, quick to attack Pope Benedict

By Br. Alexis Bugnolo

I cannot be silent at the diabolic attack made against the Vicar of Jesus Christ by FSSPX.NEWS the official news outlet of the Society of Saint Pius X, founded by Archbishop Marcel-François Lefebvre, C.S.Sp. (1905 – 1991).

Little has been published about the heresies and blasphemies and idolatries of Bergoglio, the anti-pope par excellence. But within a week of the publication of a book defending priestly celibacy against Bergoglio’s fiendish plant to destroy it, there is the SSPX quick on the attack, like hounds.

You can read their absurd critique here. To say their argument is strained or in search of evidence to prove its a priori accusations, would be an accurate assessment. Let us take a look at the errors in this article:

A GRAVE DEVIATION?

The author of the article begins by attacking Pope Benedict’s declared intention of explaining the priesthood apart from the “methodological defect in the reception of Scripture as the Word of God.” Evidently the author here shows his complete ignorance of historical theology. The term “word of God” was never in the entire history of the Church prior to the 1260’s applied to Sacred Scripture. For Christians before 1260, the Word of God was only one: Jesus Christ. It was at the University of Paris that an analogy was made, based on phrases in the Old Testament which refer to revelations made to the prophets as, “the word of the Lord”, between Sacred Scripture as revealed truth and Jesus Christ as the Truth revealing.

This attribution by the Scholastics was innocent at first, but with time it became divorced from the concept of analogy and with the Reformation it became not “the word of God”, but “The Word of God”, replacing the Mass and the Most Blessed Sacrament with the Bible as the new medium of union with God, under the control of the expert layman, who dictated what Scripture meant, without reference to the Tradition of the Church.

This, since the time of the Reformation, has become indeed a grave theological and methodological error in interpreting Christianity or Sacred Scripture. And thus to fault Pope Benedict XVI for this approach is to adhere to the very errors of Luther and Bergoglio, who just made Scripture Sunday a new day of cult in his Church, with the placement of the Scriptures on the central axis of the nave of Churches, where the Eucharist and the Tabernacle had pride of place before the Council.

A FLAWED EXEGESIS

The next chapter bears a critical title, but the text does not display any substantive disagreement.

Granted that it is better to talk of offices than ministries, but it does not fundamentally alter a theological exposition which is non technical.

WORSHIP IN SPIRIT AND TRUTH

In this chapter, the author agrees, without making much of the praise due to the Holy Father for his exposition. Remarkable, as his affirmations here cut directly against the notion of the priesthood promoted during the Aggiornamento, of the priest as actor, guide and facilitator.

AN ERRONEOUS THEOLOGY?

In this chapter, the author attacks Pope Benedict for writing: “The crucifixion of Jesus is not in itself an act of worship.” And the author admits that the Pope is referring to the action of the Roman Soldiers. But nevertheless, the author goes on the attack and tries to draw the expression of the Pope over to a denial of Christ’s offering of His Passion as an act of worship. This is the absurd method of reading used by Sedevacantists. It is most unworthy of a Catholic priest or priestly society.

In truth, it is a historical fact, that the Roman Soldiers did not put Jesus Christ to death as an act of worship to the Emperor or any Roman or Greek god. Neither did the High Priests sacrifice Jesus as an act of worship of any God. So what the Pope says is perfectly correct. The pope is using “crucifixion” in its active sense, as the crucifying of Jesus, not as the being crucified of Jesus.  The one is an act of public execution, the other is the matter which Christ offered in the Holy Spirit to the Eternal Father for the Redemption of all. And I do not think you need a degree in theology to understand the difference. The former was objectively a sin, that of condemning the Just to death, the latter was a great act of Mercy, which merited the freedom from condemnation for all those destined to eternal death, who would receive His Sacrifice in faith.

When Archbishop Viganò exposed Bergoglio for covering for pedophiles, the Society was one of the last to speak on the issue. It has been seven years of continual heresies, scandals and blasphemies, but the Society rarely denounces publicly Bergoglio. Suffice it to say, that to publish such a flimsy and error ridden attack within a week on Pope Benedict’s Book with Cardinal Sarah raises a lot of questions as to the real goals and agenda of a priestly society which still insists that all its priests offer their Masses una cum papa Francisco.

I won’t even mention that the Italian version of this released at Rome (see here) insults the Holy Father by calling him by his baptismal name at the end of the second paragraph of the essay. Nor will I mention, that which is no secret, that the big money behind the SSPX comes from Eastern Switzerland, the power base of the St. Gallen Mafia.

Did Bergoglio just cry, “Uncle!” ?

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

I think Bergoglio just cried, “Uncle!” — This expression in American English means that he surrendered to his opposition.

I say this because of the announcement yesterday, that Cardinal Giovanni Battista Re was nominated by him as Dean of the College of Cardinals, and Cardinal Leonardo Sandri, the vice-Dean.

As you may know, if you read my recent article just a few days before the announcement:  The House of Cardinal Re, that Cardinal Re is the head of a large and powerful faction in the Church, on account of his having co-consecrated more than 160 Bishops, including Cardinal Sandri and Cardinal Burke.

To name Cardinal Re and Cardinal Sandri to 2 of the 3 positions of actual power in the College of Cardinals is a stunning development.

Stunning, because neither is a member of the House of Rampolla del Tindaro, and thus neither shares an episcopal lineage with Bergoglio.

Stunning, because by giving that one faction 2 of the 3 votes necessary to call a Conclave or to decide NOT to call a Conclave, he has conceded the complaints from all the other factions in the Sacred Hierarchy and in the College of Cardinals that he not put these important offices in the hands of his own creatures.

Cardinal Re was made a Cardinal by Pope John Paul II.

Cardinal Sandri was made a Cardinal by Pope Benedict XVI.

What does this mean?

I think, first of all, it means that the complaints and protests which the faithful want to hear from the Bishops and Cardinals in public, have been made in private in an overwhelming matter. The College of Cardinals is first of all an ecclesiastical club of the highest order. They run the Church more than anyone thinks, and their power comes from this, that no one becomes pope without their placet and election.

Second, I believe it means that there is now widespread and universal opposition to Bergoglio in the College of Cardinals and in the College of Bishops, which is not spoke of in public, but which is at fever pitch in private.

Finally, I think it means that Bergoglio has caved to these complaints. By putting the next Conclave, or lack thereof, in the hands of another faction, he has admitted that the House of John Paul II and the House of Benedict XVI have definitively rejected his attempts at making the Church into another religion.

But perhaps I am being too hopeful. So keep praying!

In the meantime, insist with your local pastors TO REJECT EVERYTHING OF THE PONTIFICATE OF BERGOGLIO and point to this act of surrender as the sign to begin the rebellion to his faux pontificate of apostasy!

And write to Cardinal Re and URGE him not to convoke a conclave if Pope Benedict XVI is still alive and Bergoglio is gone, or to convoke one, if Benedict passes away, while Bergoglio remains. You can write the Cardinal at this address:

Sua Eccellenza Cardinale Giovanni Battista Re
Cardinale Decano
Collegio dei Cardinali

Palazzo Apostolico Vaticano

You have a right to question your priest

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

It is a principle of natural law, that anyone who presents himself as anything, has the duty to give reasons which justify his claims in public. This in past ages has never been much of an issue with regard to Catholic priests or Bishops. It was sufficient to know that he was a priest or a Bishop.

But with the planned and organized and generation-long effort by Masons in and outside the Church to corrupt the priesthood of Jesus Christ in the Church, it is no longer always and everywhere safe to presume the priest you know is Catholic, that is correct in doctrine, even when he is a Catholic priest.

So you should ask your local priest questions and not merely act as dumb sheep, if he appears to deviate from right doctrine or orthodox practice.

And no, I am not talking about him mistakenly leaving the cruets on the Altar rather than on the credence table. I am talking about issues which regard whether he has accepted the religion of Globalism or whether he is a Catholic.

If he says in a homily, that Greta Thurnburg is a Saint. Then you do not need to discuss anything with him, you need to denounce him as a heretic to your Bishop. I counseled one laymen on this matter recently, and after writing his bishop, the priest was removed as pastor from his parish.

No, I am speaking about ambiguous speech.  If a priest says we must be accepting to habitual sinners and goes on and on about this, then you should question him, because he may be a habitual sinner himself with intentions of corruption your sons and/or daughters.

If he says he hates honest politicians like Donald Trump or Matteo Salvini, you should question him about his politics. Because if he is a Marxist he is an apostate on account of this, that he rejects the entire soteriology of the Church.  Soteriology is the theology of salvation. Salvation consists in our supernatural conformity, body and soul, to the will of God, through the Sacraments, with the merit of eternal life in Heaven. It does not consist in fulfilling the political platform of the local left wing party.

In fact, if your priest admits he votes for the Left, you should question him, because with a few questions you will be able to reveal that he is either a heretic or an apostate, and then you can denounce him to your Bishop and leave the parish for another one.

If he preaches against the prolife movement, against those who want right doctrine or praxis, if he says that truth does not matter or says things which are confused, you should question him. I remember years ago, I was visiting a Church on Holy Trinity Sunday, and the priest said: At the baptism of Jesus a voice was heard, the voice of the Holy Spirit saying, “This is my beloved son, listen to him”.  In charity I assumed the priest was drunk on some physical liquid, and so I denounced him by letter to his bishop. In a week or two he was removed from the parish.

I know of a real case, in the Diocese of Worcester, Massachusetts, where a priest spoke in favor of contraception and abortion during a homily. The whole parish rose up and physically ran him out of the parish. The Bishop graciously responded by removing the priest as pastor. They questioned him before the ran him out, but they did the right and Catholic thing. God bless both them and their Bishop.

So it is important to speak with your priest, when he starts acting strange. Because if you don’t, it will lead to more serious scandals and the lost of faith of your brother and sisters in Christ. And do not hesitate to denounce bad priests, because this is a blessing for all: for by denouncing bad priests, you make the life of every other good priest in the Diocese easier, by removing a stain, a cross and a plague on the local Church.

As of this morning, there are 280 human beings in the world

Social Media can be a very useful tool for gathering information and making connections with others who share the same ideas or different ideas than yourself. It is a sort of self publication medium used by many. And without it, most of us would not know what is going on in the world, since the Main Stream Media has long ago ceased reporting it.

But the saddest reality on social media is that it attracts a lot of persons who only care to self promote themselves. They do not care about anyone else. In fact, they have not a shred of humanity outside of serving their egos.

That’s idolatry.

Having helped my brothers care for my aged mom during the last few years of her life, which passed on All Souls Day in 2018 — please pray for her soul, her name was Doris — I had a poignant experience of the tragedy of human suffering for the elderly in today’s hedonistic world, when there is no one who really cares for them in the institutions which are supposed to care for them.

My mom was a wise woman. Before she lost her faculties from dementia, she made my brothers and I promise that we would not leave her alone in the end, not send her to a facility to be “cared for”, in short, that we would keep her at home.

So great was her trust in us and fear of the institutions of medical health, that she asked me one day in private, if it would be a sin to ask God for the grace to die at home. I told her it would certainly not be, that God loves us to ask Him for special favors, if they be pleasing to Him. And I told her several accounts I know of where others have done this and had their prayers answered. So I recommended that she say 3 Hail Mary’s every day, asking for that grace.

And Our Lady granted it. For she died at home, in my arms.

It is the only moment in my life, that I care never to forget.

So, when the Book Flap erupted last week at the Vatican and it became obvious to me that Pope Benedict XVI was being manipulated by those closest to them, you can imagine my anger that such an elderly man be abused. I am especially concerned that this is so, because I have a recording of the voice of Gänswein threatening me on the phone for having dared to ask Pope Benedict XVI if he intended to resign the petrine munus.

So I have no doubts that if he can threaten me over a burner phone, he can threaten others face to face.

For this reason, I find it INCOMPREHENSIBLE that anyone would not want Pope Benedict XVI protected. And thus I find it TOTALLY INHUMANE if there be anyone who does not care whether he be abused or not.

This is why I say, as of writing this post, I can be sure there are 280 human beings on the planet, because that is all who have, so far, signed the Petition to Donald Trump, to ask that he simply advocate for all the elderly, including Pope Benedict.

POSTSCRIPT: The featured image is a real photo of Pope Benedict. It was claimed a year or two ago that he fell down and injured himself. Whatever be the cause, that would be sufficient grounds for any son to demand that his parent be moved to another facility, because a frail person should never be allowed to be unaccompanied or in a place he could fall down and be hurt. But a strange group of psychopathically inclined individuals are trying to gaslight Catholics into thinking that Benedict never suffered such an injury and that this photo is a fake, the only sin being the use of it to stir the Catholic Faithful to have pity upon Benedict. — It distracts from the Argentine, you know! — PATHETIC, that any social media platform should allow such gaslighting. And I am shocked that Gloria.TV is one of them.

Dialogue with a Cardinal, who refused dialogue

By Br. Alexis Bugnolo

Christian charity requires that we not refuse to speak with our superiors or inferiors. The Crisis in the Church now is so grave that we should all be seeking to speak with our superiors about it and about how to remedy it. One thing we must discuss is the canonically erroneous declaration of Feb. 11, 2013 by the man who is Pope Benedict XVI.  Erroneous, manifestly, because no one had the respect for his Office or person to point out that the act needed to be redone, IF it was his intention to posit an act in conformity with Canon 332 §2.

For this reason I have written more than 50 Cardinals, I think — I am not sure I have lost count — to raise the issue. And recently one of them had the Christian charity to respond to me in writing. I cannot divulge the actual text, for the sake of my respect for his person and office, but I can divulge my text in reply, because I think it addresses a problem we all are having when we speak with out superiors about Pope Benedict’s Declaratio.

The Cardinal wrote to me that we must presume that Pope Francis is validly elected and holds the petrine munus, and therefore, he told me that he did not want to speak with me in person about the Renunciation.

Here is my reply to this prince of the Church:

Your Eminence,

If you ask any Doctor of Law, you will see that the reason you give, namely, “We must assume Pope Francis is a validly elected pope, who actually represents the petrine munus”, is a statement which compounds several errors:

1. First, that a man is the pope is not a presumption of fact, but the conclusion of law. For example, he is not the pope, whom the Cardinals say is the pope, rather, he is the pope who was elected according to the norm of Universi Dominici Gregis. To say the first, that is, that he whom the Cardinals says is the pope, is the pope, confuses the means whereby we know a canonical fact with the cause of the legitimacy of a canonical fact. They are two different things.

2. Second, in all law, whether Roman, Napoleonic or Common, the cessation of power is never presumed. This is an ancient principle, the ignoring of which would cause chaos in society. The corollary is that the cessation of right is never presumed. Now a Papal renunciation is the first moment in a petrine succession. And a succession of legal right is judged as a cessation of power. As Mons. Arrieta, of the Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts, affirmed in my presence on Dec 11, 2019, such an act of renunciation must be clear in itself, it cannot be interpreted to be valid, because no one has the right to interpret it. This is because, interpretation of a law is the cause of its being understood other than what it is. And the Code of Canon Law does not grant that right, in papal renunciations, since they must be manifestly a renunciation of petrine munus.

3. Third, your affirmation that Pope Francis must be assumed to be validly elected, is the supposition of a conclusion as the first premise of your thought. In other words, you have taken what you should, in virtue of a series of illations based on facts and law, hold as a conclusion, and make it the first principle whereby your mind refuses to presuppose that from which it is illated. This is the logical error called petitio principii.

4. In truth, if you read Universi Dominici Gregis n. 37, Pope John Paul II required that a sede vacante be verified as a legal one. But Mons Arrieta assured me that no such verification was done in Feb. 2013. In fact, canon 40 invalidates everything done by a subject receiving an administrative act, before he verifies the integrity of the act itself. Yet the Vatican was publishing different versions of the Declaratio for many days, so an integral act was never had prior to the announcement minutes after the Consistory of Feb. 11, that the act meant a renunciation of the papacy. Indeed, as a Latinist who has published both a Grammar and translated over 9000 pages of Scholastic texts, I have found more thn 40 errors in the Latin text. There are moreover at least 6 canonical errors in the central act, which render it invalid, null or irritus. Furthermore, canon 41 gives each of us the duty to refuse an actus nullus and requires that we have recourse to the authority issuing the act. As Mons. Arrieta affirmed again to me, in the case of a papal resignation, if the act is null it must be redone, and if it is unclear the recourse to the superior must be to solicit another valid act, since he himself cannot make it valid by an interpretation. Thus, the mere fact that Pope Benedict said he renounced the ministerium, when Canon 332 §2 requries the renunciation of munus, means that the act is also irritus in virtue of canon 188, for substantial error, and irritus in virtue of canon 38 for not containing a derogation of the requirement to name the munus.

I can understand that as a Cardinal you would be disinclined to broach the issue of the legitimacy of the previous apparent Conclave, in which you never participated, but as Catholics we risk the penalty of eternal damnation, if we allow the Petrine Succession to falter for reasons so grave. Words have meaning, and if we reject that, then we will not find mercy before the terrible seat of Judgement of the Divine Word, who said of Pope John Paul II when he foresaw his Code of Canon Law in 1983: Whatsoever you bind on earth, shall be bound also in Heaven.

Finally, I have not demanded a meeting with Your Eminence, but I have pointed out the grave reasons why you should act, and at least do the due diligence required of you in Canon 41 and seek a private audience with Pope Benedict, before he loses his mental faculties. I assure you that he will tell you that it was never his intention to renounce the petrine munus, only to renounce the petrine ministerium and office. I say this based on a complete study of everything he said from Feb. 11, 2013 to today. And Antonio Socci agrees with me, as he said in his interview with Aldo Maria Valli just last week.

Sincerely in Saint Francis,

Br. Alexis Bugnolo

Müller implies that Bergoglio will soon be thrust out of power

By Br. Alexis Bugnolo

Archbishop Gerhard Müller in his capacity as Grand Priore of the Constantinian Order of Saint George, celebrated Solemn High Mass at the Church of St. Agnes, on the Piazza Navona, here at Rome, on her feast day, this Tuesday. Announcements were on social media everywhere.

During the Mass the Archbishop gave a brief but evocative homily, a section of which FromRome.Info presents here in its own English translation, which we think needs to be read carefully:

With the blood of her young life, Saint Agnes testified to Christ, the Son of God and sole Savior of the world. And in this way she encourages us also, here at Rome and in Europe, to profess our Catholic Faith publicly and without fear of men. The Faith of the Apostles Peter and Paul is the root of the culture, which from Rome and Italy, has stretched forth to all of Europe, conferring upon her her Christian identity. Only in Christianity is there a future for Italy, neo-paganism, on the other hand, will bring her to certain ruin. Every possible dialogue with the the old man, Scalfari, is wasted if the atheist, in his confusion, draws the conclusion that the Pope has denied the Divinity of Christ. In fact, for what other reason is the Bishop of Rome the Pope of the whole Catholic Church, if not because he confesses night and day, with Saint Peter: “You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God” (Matthew 16:16)

Catholics would do well to collaborate with everyone spiritually and morally capable of assuming responsibility for the economic, political, cultural and religious future of Europe. The unique source from which there flows clear water for the rebirth of the Eternal City and of all Italy is the Christian image of man.  And the politician who holds a rosary in his hand as a symbolic gesture is more worthy of truth than one who removes the Cross of Christ with a concrete gesture.

(bold face added by FromRome.Info)

Ostensibly the comments are in reference to the bitter denunciation made by Bergoglio against Matteo Salvini earlier this week, when after Salvini pointed out that the rise of anti-semitism in Europe was do to unbridled illegal immigration, Bergoglio addressing the Simon Wisenthal members, said that populism leads to anti-semitism.

However, if you read more closely, the Archbishop is making a parallel between Bergoglio speaking to Scalfari, the renowned Marxist atheist who is always telling the world what Bergoglio really thinks, with the Minister of Education in Italy, who recently resigned after causing a storm of criticism by a proposal to remove the Crucifix from the public schools of Italy, where it has been for decades.

To the intelligent observer, the argument is thus: if you act like a politician, and not like Saint Peter, then you are no more worthy of trust than a Left wing politician who will be soon removed from office by popular resentment.

Perhaps, I am reading to much into it. But as it is a German speaking in Italian, I think not, because my sources indicate that discussions among the Cardinals are maturing in just that direction.
