False Prophet Alert…
The ‘Omega Testament’: Colombian Nun claims to have received explosive Revelations from Benedict XVI in Mystical Vision
Ratzinger’s posthumous Revenge? Don’t fall for it…
Perhaps we should have seen this coming.
Barely a month after the death of ‘Pope Emeritus’ Benedict XVI (Fr. Joseph Ratzinger) on Dec. 31, 2022, a Novus Ordo religious sister (nun) in Colombia has claimed that the ‘Pope Emeritus’ appeared to her twice in a vision on Feb. 2, 2023, and revealed to her what he called the second part of his spiritual testament (the first having been released to the public the day of his death). It is a lengthy text containing explosive contents concerning the Church, himself, and his enemies, with special emphasis being placed on the last ten years.
We have decided to publish a blog post on this story not because we believe the ‘revelations’ to be from Heaven (far from it!), but because we fear that, as the English-speaking world is beginning to hear about this, a lot of good-willed, pious people will be fascinated by the captivating content and be tempted to toss aside what we know about Ratzinger and the Modernists and instead believe that Benedict XVI was the last true Pope and a great defender of the Catholic Faith, if not always in fact, at least always in intent. For a refreshing reality check, we recommend:
Before our Blessed Lord ascended into Heaven, he told His Apostles what things must come to pass before He will return in glory:
And Jesus answering, said to them: Take heed that no man seduce you: For many will come in my name saying, I am Christ: and they will seduce many. … And many false prophets shall rise, and shall seduce many. And because iniquity hath abounded, the charity of many shall grow cold. But he that shall persevere to the end, he shall be saved. … For there shall be then great tribulation, such as hath not been from the beginning of the world until now, neither shall be. And unless those days had been shortened, no flesh should be saved: but for the sake of the elect those days shall be shortened. Then if any man shall say to you: Lo here is Christ, or there, do not believe him. For there shall arise false Christs and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders, insomuch as to deceive (if possible) even the elect. Behold I have told it to you, beforehand.
Given these warnings, it is tragic to see people fall again and again for alleged visionaries and their messages. While of course there are true private revelations given by Heaven — such as Our Lord’s revelations to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque, or the three secrets given by Our Lady of Fatima — it behooves us to be extremely skeptical of anything the Church has not approved and that we cannot be certain is in fact safe and worthy of belief.
The Testimony of Sister Benedicta
The Colombian nun is identified only by her religious name, as Hermana Benedicta de la Cruz, in English, Sister Benedicta of the Cross. The name or location of her convent are not mentioned, and a quick internet search reveals that she has allegedly been receiving visions and messages for a while — including one from ‘Pope’ Paul VI in 2022 (SOURCE) and one from ‘Pope’ John Paul II in 2021 (SOURCE). In the latter source document, her convent is identified as the Monasterio de María Corredentora; however, an internet search does not turn up any results for a convent by that name in Colombia.
Regarding her alleged mystical experiences of Feb. 2, 2023, Sr. Benedicta says the first vision took place as she assisted at Mass. When it came time for the incensing at the offertory (or the ‘preparation of the gifts’, as this was presumably the Novus Ordo Missae), she says the priest suddenly vanished before her eyes and in his stead she saw Benedict XVI, full of splendor, who was offering the Traditional Latin Mass (ha!). With him she saw St. Augustine of Hippo and St. Bonaventure.
The second vision took place on the same day, at 11:00 pm at night, in her cell, when the full text of the explosive and lengthy second testament was dictated to her by Benedict XVI. This testament he called ‘Omega’, in contrast to the first one, which he called ‘Alpha’.
The reason given for revealing this testament is that it was supposed to have been published after his death, along with some other documents, but this did not come to pass because ‘Archbishop’ Georg Gänswein, Ratzinger’s long-time private secretary, burned all his papers instead. Furthermore, although Benedict XVI had also given copies of everything to his friend Giulio Colombi for publication, Colombi died on Jan. 1, 2023, only one day after him. Thus, so the story goes, Ratzinger now appeared to Sr. Benedicta of the Cross to reveal to her the full text of the ‘Omega Testament’ for publication in the media.
As far as we have been able to ascertain, the first time the message related by Sister Benedicta was made public, was Feb. 7, 2023, in Spanish, by Radio Rosa Mistica Colombia.
The full text of the message, including the full ‘Omega Testament’, has been published in the following languages (please note that if some of these translations occasionally sound a bit off, a computerized translator might be to blame):
- Spanish [original]: VIDEO at Radio Rosa Mística Colombia
- English: TEXT at My Sacred Shelter
- German: TEXT and VIDEO at Apostel der Endzeit
- Italian: TEXT at Patrizia Stella and VIDEO at Domina Multilingual
The text is unusually long. In English translation, it is over 9000 words. Depending on spacing and font size, it comes to about 14 pages in print. Nevertheless, it is a fast read, as the content is extremely interesting.
Benedict XVI’s reported ‘Omega Testament’
The ‘Omega Testament’, or perhaps we should call it ‘Testament Omega’, is a document in which Benedict XVI engages in a kind of general reckoning with his enemies, especially those in the Vatican. It makes him, Benedict, look like a saint — a sacrificial victim who heroically imitated the Lord Jesus Christ in suffering hatred, betrayal, and injustice, all for the sake of the Church and of God. ‘Pope’ Francis (Jorge Bergoglio) and ‘Abp.’ Ganswein, by contrast, are depicted as psychopathic monsters.
In what follows, we will look at some of the “highlights” of this Omega Testament, which Ratzinger reportedly introduced to Sister saying, “The story is long, and what I am about to tell will cause a hurricane that will shake the Church to its foundations, especially the central government, the Curia of the Vatican.”
We will present our summary as numbered bullet points. This will make it easier to keep a general overview, and it will allow one to refer back to individual points later.
The ‘Omega Testament’ in brief
- Benedict XVI presents himself as an opponent of ecclesiastical Freemasonry, Modernism, and Relativism.
- ‘Pope’ John Paul I was assassinated for having initiated a purge of Masons in the Vatican and trying to shake up the Vatican Bank.
- Benedict wanted to purge and reorganize the Roman Curia.
- ‘Pope’ Francis is the great “destroyer of the Church” and “under the influence of Satan”.
- Benedict suffered greatly for the Church and accepted being led like a lamb to the slaughter.
- During Vatican II, Ratzinger had a “vision of the future” in which he saw the errors that would arise from a “misinterpretation” of the conciliar documents.
- Benedict XVI was the Modernists’ greatest obstacle.
- ‘Abp.’ Gänswein was a Judas Iscariot to Ratzinger, but he remained Christ-like and patiently carried his cross.
- Benedict calls Gänswein his “jailer”.
- Benedict, who now speaks from heaven, calls himself “the last legitimate successor of the Apostle Peter”.
- His resignation in 2013 was forced by means of a coup-d’état that involved freezing the assets of the Vatican Bank. The subsequent 2013 conclave had a majority of Masonic cardinals, and “the world’s major elites, and China in particular” demanded the election of “their candidate”. The United States, led by Barack Obama, “contributed the most to my coup”.
- Benedict ascribes his bizarre decision to resign while nevertheless “continu[ing] my Petrine ministry in a different way”, to the Holy Spirit.
- Only a few cardinals were loyal to him.
- It is not true that he protected pedophile priests; it is a rumor spread by his enemies to discredit him.
- The cardinals were so disobedient that it was impossible for him to rule the Church.
- His personal secretary Gänswein “was my executioner, an open microphone for my enemies”.
- Benedict says his enemies were slowly poisoning him. Specifically, the order came from Francis, through Ganswein, to the nuns who fed him.
- On Apr. 16, 2022, his 95th birthday, Bergoglio came to see him in private: “Under the seal of confession and in his usual flattering attitude of false brotherhood, Bergoglio, or rather Francis, told me in a mocking tone and in his very cynical and ruthless way that he liked [having] the Church in his hands, that he would completely destroy her and bury the Eucharist forever. He said: I will wipe your God off the face of the earth, I have many allies to help me, not only from within but also from without. … He confessed to me that one of his goals was to throw mud at the Mother of God, to eradicate dogma if possible, and to trample on the Eucharist. He told me that he would eradicate the extraordinary rite [Traditional Latin Mass] in one fell swoop, leaving only the current rite with its many [profanations] and sacrileges.”
- Francis hates the Blessed Virgin Mary. He revealed to Benedict that his consecration of Russia and the Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary was “pantomime”.
- Benedict kept wearing the white cassock and formulated his public statements cryptically with the hope that the world would recognize that he was still the validly reigning Pope.
- Benedict wrote one final encyclical, on the Blessed Virgin Mary, dated Mar. 25, 2022. This encyclical contains an infallible dogmatic definition, given ex cathedra, of Mary as Co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix, and Advocate.
- Benedict wrote a number of confidential personal letters to various recipients, including ‘Cardinal’ Gerhard Ludwig Müller, ‘Cardinal’ Raymond Burke, ‘Cardinal’ Joseph Zen, ‘Cardinal’ Robert Sarah, the Society of St. Pius X, and the Fraternity of St. Peter.
- Benedict opposes Communion in the hand.
- He gave copies of the letters he had written and wanted published after his death, to his friend Giulio Colombi, because he knew Ganswein would not publish them. [However, Colombi died only one day after Ratzinger.]
- Benedict asks Sr. Benedicta of the Cross to publish all of the contents of his Omega Testament in the media, adding that he wants it to reach the Roman Curia and the college of cardinals.
Thus far the main points of what is claimed to be Ratzinger’s second testament.
Our Commentary on the ‘Omega Testament’
It is probably best, at this point, to simply share some initial observations, again in bullet point form, regarding what has been disclosed in this alleged ‘second testament’ of Benedict XVI.
We offer the following comments:
- On the surface, the message comes with an air of credibility and will no doubt appeal to a lot of good-willed souls who have been greatly disturbed by ‘Pope’ Francis and have been looking for a way out of — or at least a credible explanation for — what has taken place since Jorge Bergoglio usurped the Papal Throne in 2013.
- It may be supposed that a certain amount of what is contained in the Omega Testament is actually true. (Lies are always more effective when they contain a lot of truth, and the devil knows it.)
- The contents of the message are explosive and captivating. The Omega Testament reads like a suspenseful mystery novel and has a bit of the feel of an exciting episode from a soap opera of the 1980s. That doesn’t mean it’s not true, but it is noteworthy.
- The testament confirms many ideas, beliefs, and suspicions of those in the Novus Ordo Church who are very unhappy with Francis and wish for the days of John Paul II and Benedict XVI to return.
- The Testament seems to come at just the right time to keep Benedict XVI believers from looking into Sedevacantism, thus prolonging the Vatican II charade further, since Benedict was a man of the council and in fact personally helped to shape it and develop its false teachings.
- His revelations about what Francis told him, if true, would constitute a breaking of the seal of confession. Such an act is so heinous that in this world, it incurs automatic excommunication. It is hard to imagine that God “gave him permission”, so to speak, to break the seal of confession this one time. (It is not relevant to the inviolability of the seal that the sacrament was not actually conferred, that Bergoglio was bragging about his sins, that he mocked the sacrament, etc.)
- Benedict’s claim to have acted the way he did in order to avoid a great schism, does not make a whole lot of sense, since a schism — in which the good and the bad are at least visibly disjointed from one another — would have been a much lesser evil than what there is now.
- If the Conclave of 2013 had so many Masonic cardinals in it, whose fault was that? Hadn’t most of them been appointed by Benedict himself and by John Paul II?
- Some of the assertions made or implied in the Omega Testament are rather humorous and bordering on the absurd. For instance, the idea that Benedict XVI opposes Communion in the hand. We remember it was at the funeral of John Paul II on Apr. 8, 2005, that ‘Cardinal’ Joseph Ratzinger, as the main celebrant, gave ‘Communion’ in the hand to a known Protestant! Another amusing element in this testament is that Ratzinger supposedly had a vision of the future of how the Vatican II documents would be “misinterpreted”. Whoever came up with this had a sense of humor!
All in all, the Omega Testament makes Benedict XVI look extremely holy. How about that! It’s too bad that so much of what he says does not square with the Joseph Ratzinger we know. With all the craziness of the last 10 years, it is easy to forget some inconvenient truths; for example:
- Ratzinger denied the Resurrection of Christ
- Ratzinger was an insane Ecumenist
- Ratzinger denied the Dogma of Papal Primacy in a 1982 book
- Young Ratzinger called out for “dangerous Modernism” in 1956
- Summorum Pontificum: Ratzinger’s clever Attack on the Traditional Latin Mass
- Ratzinger says Catholic Church has no mission to convert Jews
- Benedict XVI at the Blue Mosque in Istanbul, Turkey
- Benedict XVI’s Interreligious Prayer for Peace Gathering in Assisi, Italy (2011)
- Ratzinger had told a Lutheran Vatican employee NOT to become Catholic
- Ratzinger was no friend of Fatima
This alleged revelation of the Omega Testament is clearly giving new impetus to the ‘Resignationist’ movement, just at a time when it was beginning to die out or at least lose steam. ‘Resignationism’, also called ‘Benepapism’, ‘Benevacantism’, the ‘BiP’ theory, etc., is the position which holds that Ratzinger’s resignation from the pontificate in 2013 was invalid due to a defectively stated intention to resign, done either deliberately or by mistake. This, in turn, would account for the invalidity of Bergoglio’s pontificate, which would explain the wild apostasy we have seen him promote in the last ten years.
As our Blessed Lord said, “Take heed that no man seduce you” (Mt 24:4). To protect ourselves against being deceived, we must, first of all, pray! And we must, of course, stay far away from unapproved revelations and alleged visionaries, and not busy ourselves with such sensationalist things.
What the Catholic Church taught until the death of Pope Pius XII is certain and safe, and gives us all we need to know for our eternal salvation. Approved devotions — especially the Holy Rosary and the Sacred Heart — are an important complement to a rich sacramental life, though the latter may not be possible for everyone at this time (see “Now What?” for guidance).
False prophets abound in our times, and, whether intentionally or not, this Sister Benedicta of the Cross is surely one of them.
