The Facts About “Pope Benedict XVI” – Joseph Alois Ratzinger

What You Need To Know About the Man
who Claimed to be the Pope from 2005-2013

“Benedict XVI”

On April 19, 2005, the German “cardinal” Fr. Joseph Ratzinger was elected “Pope” Benedict XVI. This page is dedicated to demonstrating that Ratzinger’s beliefs and actions reveal that he was not a Catholic, and therefore he could not possibly have held the highest office in the Catholic Church, the Papacy.

Furthermore, the “episcopal consecration” of Fr. Ratzinger in 1977 was invalid, and hence Joseph Ratzinger was not even a bishop but only a priest (ordained in 1951).

We also encourage you to read “What to Expect of Benedict XVI”, an essay we put together in 2005, outlining what we believed would happen during the Benedict XVI “pontificate” — and we weren’t very far off. Further below you will find information regarding Benedict’s resignation from the “papal office” that was effective Feb. 28, 2013.

Ratzinger against Traditionalists:

“We must be on guard against minimizing these movements [that oppose Vatican II]. Without a doubt, they represent a sectarian zealotry that is the antithesis of Catholicity. We cannot resist them too firmly.
