READ THE ORIGINAL IN ITALIAN AT MARCOTOSATTI.COM

Dear Friends and Enemies of Stilum Curiae, we offer you today an extremely interesting document from the ex-Nuncio to the United States, Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, regarding one of the recent nominations by the Bridge-Builder: that of Cardinal Leonardo Sandi, as Vice Deacon of the College of Cardinals.  It will be Leonardo Sandri, who at 76 years of age, who will oversee in reality the functions of the Dean of the Conclave, Giovanni Battista Re, who being 85 years of age cannot participate.  It is a nomination which has stunned us, seeing that Leonardo Sandri was the Sostituo to the Secretary of State (then, Cardinal Sodano) when there was published the unsigned “note” in which it was affirmed there was no ongoing investigation against Marcial Maciel, the diabolic founder of the Legionaires of Christ.  Moreover, the good will of the reigning Pontiff towards Sandri is extraordinary. He has already completed two tours of duty of 5 years each, since 20o7, as Prefect of the Congregation for Oriental churches (and is in the middle of a third) and has completed 76 years, when 75 is already the limit imposed for heads of the Dicasteries and for Bishops. But let us read what Archbishop Viganò has written:

§§§

The Faithful have the right to know

We have just been witnesses to one of the most indecent episodes where we have looked upon the work of the prince of lies intent upon falsifying the book of Pope Benedict XVI and Cardinal Robert Sarah, by covering them with ignoble insults and vulgar insinuations, by means of the actions of the papal prison guard, who is now serving as a hit-man.  And now again we find him to be involved in another masterpiece of trickery: the confirmation on the part of the Bridge-Builder in the election of Cardinal Bishops and of the new Dean and Vice-Dean of the College of Cardinals.  These acts have passed unobserved, while they conceal a subtle strategy.  It is necessary to keep in mind, indeed, that in June of 2019, Papa Francesco increased the number of Cardinal Bishops, which had remained unchanged for centuries, by promoting 4 new ones at a single stroke. In this manner he insured for himself a majority favorable to himself, a thing which he has always done with new members of the College of Cardinals.

To Cardinal Giovanni Battista Re, named Dean at the age of 86, but excluded form the next Conclave, I wish a longer life than his father. But his nomination is a cover for the more decisive one – that of Cardinal Sandri – who is now positioned to steer the next Conclave secundum Franciscum, that is, according to the updated and augmented version of the Mafia of St. Gall.

With Cardinal Leonardo Sandri I am bound by a long friendship, which had its beginning in the Pontifical Ecclesiastical Academy, and then throughout 11 years in the same office as secretary to the Sostituto of the Secretary of State, and then 7 years of collaboration, from when he returned from a mandate as Nuncio to Mexico, after only 6 months, and was named the Sostotuto.

Amicus Plato sed magis amica veritas — This maxim, attributed to Aristotle, and then taken up by Plato in regard to Socrates, and successively by Cicero, is explained in this way by Saint Thomas Aquinas in his Sententia libri Ethicorum, Book 1, Lesson 6, nn. 4-5:

Quod autem oporteat veritatem praeferre amicis, ostendit hac ratione. Quia ei qui est magis amicus, magis est deferendum. Cum autem amicitiam habeamus ad ambo, scilicet ad veritatem et ad hominem, magis debemus veritatem amare quam hominem, quia hominem praecipue debemus amare propter veritatem et propter virtutem… Veritas autem est amicus superexcellens cui debetur reverentia honoris; est etiam veritas quiddam divinum, in Deo enim primo et principaliter invenitur. Et ideo concludit, quod sanctum est praehonorare veritatem hominibus amicis.

In my own translation, it goes like this:

Then, that it be necessary to prefer truth to friends, is demonstrated with this reckoning. To him to whom one is more a friend there goes greater honor.  Being friends of both, that is, of truth and of neighbor, we ought to love more the truth than our neighbor, because we ought to love the neighbor above all according to truth and virtue. Truth, indeed, is the most excellent friend to which one owes the reverence of honor. Truth is something of the divine, it finds itself in the first seat, and in its first principle in God.  From which one must conclude, that it is something holy to prefer the honor of truth to friends.

Moreover, what constrains me to write about Cardinal Leonardo Sandri is inspired solely by the friendship which binds me to him for nearly 50 years, for the good of his soul, for the love of the Truth which is Christ Himself and for the Church His Bride, whom we have served together.

In the first audience which Francis conceded to me after that which I already mentioned on June 23, 2013, in which he asked me about Cardinal McCarrick, he asked me a similar question: “What is Cardinal Sandri like?” Struck with surprise by that question in regard to my dear friend, I did not reply out of embarrassment. Francis, then, opened his hands and moved them up and down like scales — as if to say: “Which one is heavier?” — and he looked me straight in the eyes to see if I agreed.  In reply, I moved to confide in him: “Holy Father, I do not know if you know that the Nuncio Justo Mullor, President of the Pontifical Ecclesiastical Academy, was removed from the Apostolic Nunciature in Mexico because he opposed the directives coming from the Secretary of State aimed at covering for the grave accusations against Marcial Maciel”. I said this to the pope, so that he might reckon it for an eventual remedy to the injustice which Mons. Mullor suffered for not joining in the compromise, for remaining faithful to the truth and for his love of the Church. And this is the truth, which we reaffirm to the honor of this faithful servant of the Holy See, on the tomb of which I celebrated a Holy Mass in suffrage, in the Cathedral of Almeria, Spain.

I have already written in my first testimonial that the principal responsible for covering the misdeeds committed by Maciel was the then Secretary of State, Cardinal Angelo Sodano, the recent acceptance of whose own resignation as Dean of the College of Cardinals was tied to his being implicated in the affair with Maciel. He, in addition to having protected Maciel, was certainly not outside of the loop in regard to the promotion of McCarrick … In the mean time, it is just that it be known that Cardinal Francis Arinze duly opposed himself, inside the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, to the attempt by Sodano to coverup the case of Maciel.

Unfortunately for him, even Sandri let himself be involved by Sodano in this coverup operation for the horrible misdeeds of Maciel.  To replace Mons. Mullor in Mexico City, it was necessary to name someone securely loyal to Sodano. Sandri had already given proof as Assessor of the Secretary of Sate. And so, the Nuncio in Venezuela, who was only there for 2 years, was transferred to Mexico. Of these shady maneuvers, which the ones in charge qualified as normal events, I was a direct witness in a conversation held by them on January 25, 2000, the Feast of Saint Paul, while we were on our way to the Basilica which bears the Saint’s name, for the closure of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity.  The connection of these dates for the transfers is also significant: June 19, 2000, the transfer to Moscow of Mons. Giorgio Zur, after being President of the Pontifical Ecclesiastical Academy for only 1 year; February 11, 2000, the nomination of Mons. Justo Mullor as President of the same Academy, after having been only 2 and a half years in Mexico; March 1, 2000, the transfer to Mexico of Mons. Sandri after only 2 and a half years spent in Venezuela. Only six months after this, on Sept 16, 2000, Sandri was promoted to the position of Sostituto of the Secretary of State, as the right hand man of Sodano.

The Legionaires of Christ did not omit to show Sandri their thanks. In the occasion of a pranzo held in the Paul VI Hall in honor of the Cardinals created in the consistory of Nov. 24, 2007, among whom was Sandri himself, we were left shocked when he cut in front of me as I stood in line to speak with Pope Benedict, as the Pope was making his entrance, saying: “Holy Father, excuse me, but I cannot stay for Pranzo, as I am the invited guest of 500 Legionaries of Christ.”

Look how Francis, after having repeatedly and obsessively indicated as the cause of sexual abuse a very vaguely defined “clericalism”, to avoid in this way denouncing the plague of homosexuality, has himself exhibited the worst kind of clericalism, which he has accused others of: to promote Sandri, the Cardinal-Priest in May 2018 to being Cardinal-Bishop only one month later, so that he might be able to name him as Vice-Dean of the College of Cardinals, as the candidate chosen beforehand by Francis to preside over the next Conclave.

The Faithful have the right to know of these sordid intrigues in a corrupt court. In the heart of the Church, it seems to us, there has invaded the shadow of the synagogue of Satan (Apocalypse 2:9).

The Woman shall triumph!

By Br. Alexis Bugnolo

We know by Faith, that the Church is the Body of Christ, mystically.  The Fathers of the Church say at the end of times there shall arise a false church, which will also mystically be the body of the Antichrist.

It is for this reason that we speak of the AntiChrist and antichrists in Catholic teaching. And it is for this reason that there is a controversy among many writers as to whether the AntiChrist will be a single person or a group of persons.

The Fathers teach that the AntiChrist, however, will be a single person, and his followers will me many.

But what many do not recognize is this, that while every member of the mystical  Body of Christ is a sort of representative of Christ, so likewise with the antiChurch and antiBody.

The Fathers of the Church tell us that at the end of time not only will Christ come again to slay the AntiChrist with the breath of His own Mouth, but that Our Lady will play a pivotal role in overcoming the forces of Darkness.

Our Lady also has told many saints the same thing, and in fact has promised us Her Triumph in apparitions like Fatima.

But to my mind, we might also see a pivotal role played by Our Lady’s faithful Children, even if some of them may not realize it. And I think that we were just witnesses of this, in this video, which has gone viral around the world:

Because in that video, a simple Catholic woman, with great faith pleads for suffering Catholics, just like Our Lady does for the same in Heaven with Her son.

We can see her great faith as she composes herself with the sign of the Cross and a fervent prayer before the incident.  What she does is perfectly proportionate to the suffering of 10s of millions of Catholics in China as a direct result of the policies of Jorge Mario Bergoglio.

What he did in response, slapping her, has revealed his inner malignancy to 100s of millions of Catholics, and especially to women, who did not yet recognize Bergoglio for what he is.

Now there is major talk here among Rome, among Bergoglio’s own apologists, that he will resign in 2020. He has become intolerable to woman everywhere. And the mass media channels like this one, which attempt to put the fault on the woman are making it worse for Bergoglio.

In my mind, this woman is a member of the mystical body of Our Lady, and through her act, Our Lady’s Immaculate Foot has just begun to descend upon the head of the serpent.

Separated from the True Pope, you won’t remain Catholic for long

By Br. Alexis Bugnolo

Pubblicato in Italiano a ChiesaRomana.Info

Saint Paul warned us long ago: Beware, he said, for not all men have the Faith! He said this at the end of his Second Epistle to the Thessalonians, to whom he revealed so many things about the last days and the Anti-Christ(s) to come. Here is the Douay Rheims English version of 2 Thess. 3, which the Modernists do not preach on any more. But which I want to speak of in this article. The Apostle writes:

For the rest, brethren, pray for us, that the word of God may run, and may be glorified, even as among you; And that we may be delivered from importunate and evil men; for all men have not faith. But God is faithful, who will strengthen and keep you from evil. And we have confidence concerning you in the Lord, that the things which we command, you both do, and will do. And the Lord direct your hearts, in the charity of God, and the patience of Christ. And we charge you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you withdraw yourselves from every brother walking disorderly, and not according to the tradition which they have received of us.For yourselves know how you ought to imitate us: for we were not disorderly among you; Neither did we eat any man’s bread for nothing, but in labour and in toil we worked night and day, lest we should be chargeable to any of you. Not as if we had not power: but that we might give ourselves a pattern unto you, to imitate us. 10 For also when we were with you, this we declared to you: that, if any man will not work, neither let him eat.

11 For we have heard there are some among you who walk disorderly, working not at all, but curiously meddling. 12 Now we charge them that are such, and beseech them by the Lord Jesus Christ, that, working with silence, they would eat their own bread. 13 But you, brethren, be not weary in well doing.

14 And if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man, and do not keep company with him, that he may be ashamed: 15 Yet do not esteem him as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother.

16 Now the Lord of peace himself give you everlasting peace in every place. The Lord be with you all. 17 The salutation of Paul with my own hand; which is the sign in every epistle. So I write.

18 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

Bad Company makes bad companies

God made us to know the Truth and the Truth will set us free, because God our Creator is the Truth. It follows then, that we exercise our minds and wills in that which is most essentially directed to our own perfection and destiny when we assent to any truth and will to find it and keep it and put it into practice.

But any member of the Clergy, religious or laity — any hermit — who would hide the truth from you, then, is clearly not being honest, is not doing that which the Creator wants. This is especially true if the truth they are hiding is a truth revealed by God or the importance of which depends directly from what God has said.

The enemies of Peter are the enemies of Christ

Christ said to Peter that whatsoever he would bind on Earth would be bound also in Heaven. All true Catholics accept that. All fake catholics ignore it.

The Catholic Church for more than a 1000 years took this doctrine as so central to true Christianity that it was willing to leave a schism with the Greeks in place and not back down on the duty of all Christians to regard the doctrinal and disciplinary decrees of the Roman Pontiff as obligatory, in virtue of these very words of Jesus Christ.

That is why, you cannot be honestly a Christian, if you are not honestly a Catholic who submits to the Roman Pontiff. And that is also why the enemies of Peter are the enemies of Christ, because if you refuse the one you are calling the other a liar or regarding Him as not God.

Peter has told us when Peter is and is not Peter

And lest anyone be confused, it is the Roman Pontiff who has established in Canon Law the terms by which all can objectively and easily know when a man is the Roman Pontiff and when he is not.  To ignore these rules of Canon Law is just as grave as to disobey the Roman Pontiff and go off into schism, because it is an act whereby you say, “Let’s make up our own way of being Christian, apart from submission to the Roman Pontiff.”

This is why we can be 100% absolutely and supernaturally certain that  Christ Jesus does not regard any man His Vicar on Earth, if that man’s claim to be pope is not in accord with the norms of Canon Law and papal law.

The corrollary is that, we can be 100% absolutely and supernaturally certain that Christ Jesus does not regard any Vicar of His on Earth no longer His Vicar, if that man’s renunciation is not in accord with the norms of Canon Law and papal law.

Because this is the Catholic Faith, I have extensively investigated both questions, the first in regard to Bergoglio, the second in regard to Benedict. I did not do this on a whim, I did it out of supernatural faith.

There is no doubt about this principle: A man is or is not pope, or is or is no longer the pope, based on the laws of the Church at the time he begins or ceases to be the pope. This legal principle was recognized in the antipapacy of Anacletus II and his defeat by Pope Innocent II, a defeat which was secured by Saint Bernard of Claivaux, who came to Rome to preach the facts of law about the disputed election of 1130 A.D..

All the books printed in the Catholic Church since 1130 up until Feb. 2013 were in agreement. Pope Innocent II was the valid pope, Anacletus was the antipope, because Pope Innocent was elected in accord with the law of his predecessor, who changed the terms of a papal election in the last weeks of his life. But Anacletus claimed to be elected to the prior norm.

For the Modernist, even if he claims to be a Trad ….

For the Modernist, there is not fixed nor lasting truth. What was true yesterday, may not and probably is not true today. Everything is in change and development. Everything mus be alive, they say, but they really mean, has to die.

All those who changed their concepts on what makes a true Pope, on Feb. 11, 2013, are deceived by Modernism or are modernists, even if they claim to be a Traditional Catholic. This includes all the publication of the so called Traditional Catholic Movement who hold that Benedict is no longer the pope. Because canon 332 §2 has not changed and it says a pope resigns when he resigns suo muneri, not  ministerio. The Vatican knows this and has tried to hide it, and I have proven that indisputably more than 6 months ago. (See the Index to Pope Benedict’s Renunciation)

Stunningly Ann Barnhardt, in her recent podcast, revealed that even Chris Ferrara, the famous attorney, who writes for several Trad publications, admitted to her, that she is probably right on the points of Canon Law regarding the failed renunciation. That was like back in 2016. But Chris still recognizes Bergoglio as the pope. The only honest assessment is that Chris is not being honest either with the public or his own conscience.

From my work here at Rome, I sense the same is true for all the experts. You just mention that Benedict is the Pope and they do not laugh, they attack. They want you to shut up, or to go away. These are signs of deeply conflicted consciences.

If it is not Catholic, it is not Catholic

Men who want to be seen as Catholics but who won’t be responsibly faithful to the duties of the faith, should not be considered faithful Catholics. Those who knowingly deceive the faithful about who is the true pope and who is not the true pope are NOT involved in a little or small controversy. They ARE ACTIVELY SCHISMATIC AND PROMOTING SCHISM.

Saint Paul warned us of such men, and he told us what to do about it.

The true Pope is the mystical Neck of the Church

If you are separated from the true Pope, you won’t remain a Catholic for long. Yes, these men who act like modernists — I do not imagine they are, but they are being constrained by their love of being accepted by errant men and errant men with money and power — have let go of essential truths of the Catholic Faith. But even you, if you follow those who deceive you in such matters, will soon lose your faith. The Church will become something like what the Anglicans have, an all-is-up-for-grabs Christianity, which keeps the names and outward appearances, but has long ago dumped doctrine, morality and faith.

The same thing we see happening with these fake Trads. They are now trying to reinvent the definition of papal infallibility and have totally ignored the teachings of Christ and the saints about papal indefectibility. They are bending doctrine to invent an excuse to remain in communion with an obvious fake and antipope, while refusing communion with the true Pope who defends celibacy. They even attack the true Pope to justify their falsehoods!

This is why all Schismatics lost the true Faith, because they are no longer in union with the mystical neck of the Mystical Body and hence no longer in communion with Christ the Head. Those who fall into such sins cannot be saved, because there is no salvation for those who die separated from Christ.

40 Days of Prayer against the Church of Darkness — Day 3

Video of Midnight, January 30-31, 2020 A.D., Saint Mary Major’s Rome. (Recorded)

Intro

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.

Prayers being said Tonight at Rome

In nomine Patri et Filii et Spiritus Sancti. Amen.

Pater noster qui es in coelis, sanctificetur nomen tuum;
adveniat regnum tuum, fiat voluntas tua, sicut in coelo et in terra.
Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie,
et dimitte nobis debita nostra, sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris.
et ne nos inducas in tentationem, sed libera nos a malo. Amen.

Padre nostro che sei nei cieli, sia santificato il tuo nome;
venga il tuo regno; sia fatta la tua volontà, come in cielo così in terra.
Dacci oggi il nostro pane quotidiano,
e rimetti a noi i nostri debiti come noi li rimettiamo ai nostri debitori,
e non ci indurre in tentazione, ma liberaci dal male». Amen. (3 volte)

Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy Name,
Thy Kingdom come, Thy Will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our Daily Bread,
And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us,
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen. (3 times)

Gloria Patri et Filio et Spiritui Sancto,
Sicut erat in principio, et nunc et semper, et in saecula saeculorum. Amen.

NOTE: Since, Bl. Anna-Katerina Emmerich had this vision in 1820, before the invention of time zones, midnight here should be understood in solar time, which at Rome makes midnight occur at 12:22 AM, presently, and thus the hour of midnight would be 11:52 AM to 12:52 AM. Try to say your prayers in that hour.

This Novena is explained and announce here in English, and here in Italian.

See the article published yesterday at FromRome.Info, The Church of Light vs. the Church of Darness for more about this Novena of Prayer.

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.

Don’t be fooled: Those who insist you accept an Antipope, support his agenda 100%

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time. (Abraham Lincoln)

So goes the maxim, popular in American English, on account of the fame of the man who said it and the insight it contains. He made the remark in regard to the promises of politicians running for office, but it finds suitable application to all manners of public presentation.

I remember the summer of 1998. Having done some apostolic work in the streets in minor seminary, I was invited by two laymen to do some street preaching in Boston. It was a real eye opener, we held signs which decried sin in Biblical terms and called upon everyone to convert to the Catholic Faith.

It was then that I came to understand how absolutely deceitful the inveterate sinner is who is addicted to things contrary to nature. I think you know what I mean, but for the sake of children, I won’t say more.

This is why the entire agenda of Jorge Mario Bergoglio is not hard for me to see for what it is. These people are expert play actors, because their entire affectivity is a pretense. And like drug addicts or chronic alcoholics they suffer frequently from sociopathy.  Sociopathy is the corrupted state of the mind which refuses to admit that in all things, it must conform itself to an eternal unchanging law of morality, which comes from outside and is the basis of human morals. Sociopaths think that they are exempt or entitled to omit the observance of this or that moral law. Sociopathy leads to psychopathy, where the person no longer believes that any moral law constrains him. Lucifer was the first psychopath.

So what is said, in persons of this kind, to achieve their purpose, may or may not have anything to do with what their purpose is. Truth for them is irrelevant, or rather, truth for them is what they need to say to get what they want when they want from whom they want.

This concept of truth is why so many of them resort to victimizing the weak of mind or the youth. For these people it is practiced art, and that is why they tend to seek positions of public influence or power where they can prey upon as many persons as they want.

Sociopathy is not just something that regards the violation of the Sixth or Ninth Commandments of the Decalogue, it can regard any vice or sin. The avaricious are in extreme cases also sociopathic. The movie, The Wolf of Wall Street made this very clear — though if you have any sense of morals, watching the film is something that you will regret, it is way too graphic.

But sin in the modern world is not not graphic. There is always more evil in the world that we know right now, because it is hidden from us. This is why the Saints and indeed all prudent parents have from the beginning of time warned those under their care, to not walk with those who condone evil or refuse to admit evil is evil.

People of that base character are on a bad path, and will end in a bad way. Whether they do it out of an addiction or out of love for money. Saint Paul the Apostle reminds us of this, in the passage, For the desire of money is the root of all evils; which some coveting have erred from the faith, and have entangled themselves in many sorrows. (1 Timothy 6:10) And he said this about FALSE APOSTLES not about merchants or land owners.

This is why THERE IS GREAT GREAT EVIL in the saying that we should ignore Canon Law on when a pope truly resigns, and that we should ignore the Catholic Faith which says heretics and apostates and schismatics lose office immediately as they commit their sin.

The teaching of Bergoglio is not — as is claimed by those self-styled Trads who deny the Canons of the Church, nor as the Sedevacantists, who deny the authority of offices — something which is like the errors of anyone since the death Pius XII. It is a direct and open and manifest denial of the very foundations of the faith. And if anyone says otherwise, you should consider that they might either be insane or have not the slightest mental faculty to see that saying that Jesus is not God  (Bergoglio) is NOT just as bad as holding that an opinion on how much Blood was necessary to be shed in the Passion (Ratzinger)!

Bergoglio is using the strategem of Adolf Hitler: promise everyone everything they have ever wanted on the condition that they recognize you as the leader! — But as History shows, that led to the destruction of everyone who signed on.

Sociopaths are not always consistent in what they say, but they are consistent in what they want. And the ones which want you to keep giving them money to read their pretense that things are not as they are, I think are the most dangerous to souls, because in practice they are giving power to the forces which want to destroy Christianity. They are like the watchmen on the Gates of the Church, which as the Enemy overthrows the city and starts to  burn all the buildings to the ground, keep shouting : All is well, and 12 o’clock!

Bl. Emmerich: The Church of Light vs. the Church of Darkness

By Br. Alexis Bugnolo

Pope John Paul II warned us of the present crisis in the Church when he approved the beatification of Anna-Katerina Emmerich, on October 3, 2004, exactly 15 years to the day on which Bergoglio presided over the ceremonies of idolatry in the Vatican Gardens, on Oct. 4, 2019.

Did the Polish Pope know something we did not? — I think the Polish pope had more Catholic sense than 99% of the Clergy today, because 1) he read the prophecies of Bl. Anne Catherine Emmerich, and 2) he put trust in them.  We can see this in that he raised her to the dignity of the Altar, as a woman whose example of Christian virtues was heroic in an exemplary degree.

And not only that, he at least recognized that a papal renunciation could be invalid, and that a Conclave can be illegal (see here for more on this).

As for Bl. Emmerich, on the day of her Beatification, Pope John Paul II said the following (source):

Bl. Anne Catherine Emmerick told of “the sorrowful passion of our Lord Jesus Christ” and lived it in her body. The fact that the daughter of poor peasants who sought tenaciously to be close to God became the well-known “Mystic of the Land of Münster” was a work of divine grace. Her material poverty contrasted with her rich interior life. We are equally impressed by the new Blessed’s patience in putting up with physical weakness and her strong character, as well as her unshakable faith.

She found this strength in the Most Holy Eucharist. Her example opened the hearts of poor and rich alike, of simple and cultured persons, whom she instructed in loving dedication to Jesus Christ.

Still today, she passes on to all the saving message: Through the wounds of Christ we have been saved (cf. I Pt 2: 24).

And if you want to see first hand evidence that the Anti-Church was outraged by her Beatification, go to the Vatican Website through the link I just gave you, and click on the name of the Blessed and you will be taken to a biography which tries to make it appear that she was a globalist!

But what interests me today about the Blessed is that her revelations about the Church of Light and the Church of Darkness foretold exactly the spiritual reality of the Crisis of Apostasy in which the Catholic Church is at the present (see her prophecies, published in part, here and here). She speaks of a schism in the Catholic Church between these two Churches.

And indeed, this is exactly what we see today: 2  Churches.

The Church of Light, which is the true Catholic Church as She has ever been: with the same Faith and Sacraments and Canon Law as she had up to Feb 28, 2013. Whose pope, Benedict XVI,  was recognized by all Catholics as the Vicar of Christ.

The Church of Darkness, which is the Church of the Anti-Christ which is turning the Mass into a factory of Sacrilege, by giving the Most Blessed Sacrament to public sinners and by offering the Holy Sacrifice, not in communion with the true Pope, but with the false imposter and usurper, Jorge Mario Bergoglio.

The Pope of the Church of Light is as Bl. Emmerich says, old, weak, with failing voice and paralyzed by inaction. He is surrounded by enemies on all sides and has few to trust in.

The pope of the Church of Darkness, as Bl. Emmerich says, is dark and has a sinister face and is inviting every heretic and apostate to Rome to build up a new church filled with idolatry and every form of immorality and blasphemy and error.

Hidden Truths in Emmerich’s Prophecies

Read carefully what Bl. Anna-Katerina (this is the proper German form of her name) says and think about it.

She says in the part regarding the prayer requested by Our Lady, that the faithful should come to the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore and pray for the exorcism of the Church of Darkness. But the doors of the Church are closed. This means, that the Basilica will fall under the power of the false pope, and that his sect will exclude the true faithful from the Church.

And this is exactly what has happened and what is happening. The masses offered in that Basilica are offered for Bergoglio the anti-pope, not for Benedict the true pope. Priests and faithful like Don Minutella are “excommunicated” from the Church of Darkness for warning the faithful about it and its lies.

Notice too, that Our Lady through Bl. Emmerich asks the faithful to pray the Our Father. And precisely this spring, here at Rome, with the publication of a new Italian version of the Roman Missal, will Bergoglio demand that all start saying the false heretical version of the Our Father of his own creation.

Notice too, in her writings, that she say she came to the Basilica accompanied by Saint Francis of Assisi. This saint was seen in a vision on the night of July 16, 1208 by Pope Innocent III, saving the Church of Rome by holding up a corner of the Lateran Basilica on his shoulders, even while it was shaken by threats all around. Pope Innocent III was very devoted to St. Alexius of Rome, whose feast here in the city is on July 17. The Pope rebuilt the Basilica of St. Alexius on the Aventine and consecrated it on the very next day. So this vision of a poor man, on the vigil struck him to the core. The next day, Saint Francis paid him a visit and asked for the approval of his new community, the Friars Minor. The pope granted verbal approval immediately. The Saint’s Order has done more than many others greak works to defend the Church throughout the Centuries, with more Canonized saints than most others, excepting the Benedictines, perhaps.

So Bl. Emmerich is telling us something profound, namely, that the prayers requested are to save the Church of Rome from toppling to the ground. This is also seen in the prayers requested, because in the Rule of Saint Francis those who are not priests are to say 72 Our Fathers each day, in place of the 72 psalms which the priests say. This indicates that the faithful whom Bl. Emmerich sees come to the Basilica in vision, are laypeople not clergy. And this in turn indicates to us that the vision she had was of an apostasy of all the Clergy of Rome from the true Church.

Visions of Hope and Victory

Her visions give us hope, however, since in them she sees the doors of the Basilica open and allow the faithful enter and pray. This means, if we can rally enough faithful to pray each Midnight, whether before the Basilica, or around the world, that Our Lady is promising us the conversion of at least some of the clergy of the Diocese of Rome back to the Church of Light, and thus back into communion with Pope Benedict XVI.

In her visions, Bl. Anna-Katerina Emmerich saw the dark and sinister false pope break the Church in two and take the floor and back wall with him and flee Rome. This means that the Church of Light will have victory in this battle, and regain Rome, and that we should therefore make every sacrifice and effort to win that victory as soon as possible, with the means Our Lady indicated exactly 200 years ago.

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.

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.
