Five Years Ago Today: Benedict XVI Resigns

Joseph Ratzinger Announced Historic
Resignation Five Years Ago Today

It was Monday, February 11, 2013, when Italian journalist Giovanna Chirri became the first person to inform the world of “Pope” Benedict XVI‘s resignation, effective February 28. As the Vatican correspondent for the Italian news outlet ANSA, Chirri was seated among other members of the press to cover on-site the consistory Benedict had convoked and at which he made known his totally unexpected decision to renounce the office of the papacy which he had (falsely) been claiming since April 19, 2005:

Quapropter bene conscius ponderis huius actus plena libertate declaro me ministerio Episcopi Romae, Successoris Sancti Petri, mihi per manus Cardinalium die 19 aprilis MMV commisso renuntiare ita ut a die 28 februarii MMXIII, hora 20, sedes Romae, sedes Sancti Petri vacet et Conclave ad eligendum novum Summum Pontificem ab his quibus competit convocandum esse.

The Dictator Pope:
Explosive New Book takes Inside Look at Francis

An explosive new book concerning the person of Jorge Mario Bergoglio has appeared in English: The Dictator Pope, which promises “[t]he inside story of the most tyrannical and unprincipled papacy of modern times.”

The official book description summarizes the contents thus:

Jorge Bergoglio was elected Pope in 2013 as a liberal and a reformer. In fact, he had long been known in his native Argentina as a manipulative politician and a skilful self-presenter. Behind the mask of a genial man of the people, Pope Francis has consolidated his position as a dictator who rules by fear and has allied himself with the most corrupt elements in the Vatican to prevent and reverse the reforms that were expected of him.

Only Francis could make Martini look good…

Italian Novus Ordo Priest slams Francis, says not even “Cardinal” Martini would have voted for Bergoglio in Conclave

The long-time Vatican reporter Marco Tosatti has published on his blog a letter that he received from a conservative Italian Novus Ordo priest, one “Fr.” Ariel Levi di Gualdo, in response to his July 20 post, “Martini did not want Bergoglio as Pope”. Tosatti publishes di Gualdo’s letter without commentary, which, indeed, would be superfluous since the contents of the letter speak for themselves.

The main thrust of di Gualdo’s missive is that not even the notorious über-liberal “Cardinal” Carlo Martini (1927-2012) — an advocate of women’s ordination and homosexual civil unions, for example — would have liked to see Jorge Bergoglio as Pope (which is saying quite a lot, considering the theological overlap between Martini and Bergoglio).

Four Years of Chaos Frank:
A Press Review

 

It was on March 13, 2013, that most people heard of the Argentinian Jesuit Jorge Mario Bergoglio for the very first time. He was presented to the world as “Pope Francis”.

Presumably, most who witnessed the first appearance on the balcony of St. Peter’s Basilica will never forget the unusual experience: There he was, the first papal claimant to take the name “Francis”, clad entirely in white, without the customary red stole for the urbi et orbi blessing, looking at a jubilant crowd. His initial words of buona sera — “good evening” — and his subsequent request for the people gathered in St.

Benedict XVI:
“No One Tried to Blackmail Me”

“I would not have allowed it”

And the drama continues!

Tomorrow, September 9, Peter Seewald’s last interview book with Joseph Ratzinger (“Pope Emeritus” Benedict XVI) will hit the shelves in Germany. It is entitled Letzte Gespräche (“Final Conversations”). It will appear in English translation on November 3 under the title Last Testament: In His Own Words.

Some articles have appeared in the German and English press giving a preview of the book’s contents. One of the topics Seewald discusses with Benedict XVI, of course, is his resignation. Here are the excerpts of two news blurbs dealing with what Benedict says concerning his resignation:

…he dismissed speculation he may have been blackmailed or pressured into retiring.

Response to Hilary White

Comedy Hour at The Remnant: “Francis is the Pope Until the Pope Says He’s Not”

francis-oops.jpg

Peek-a-boo! Is he or isn’t he?

Apparently there is a new policy in place at the semi-traditionalist flagship publication The Remnant: Bloggers can write whatever they please about the Papacy, even if it contradicts the Faith, as long as they don’t endorse Sedevacantism.

Most recent case in point: A blog post by Hilary White (pictured left) entitled, “Francis is the Pope Until the Pope Says He’s Not”. The title offers a good preview of the confused theology that follows in the body of the text, where a copious amount of hot air combines with unorthodox theological ideas to create a dangerous concoction that seeks to make up for a woeful lack of Catholicism.

Barnhardt goes Resignationist…

Ann Barnhardt dumps Francis, seeks Refuge in Benedict XVI

ann-barnhardt.jpg

She’s finally figured it out: Francis cannot be the Pope of the Catholic Church. The outspoken colorful controversialist Ann Barnhardt has announced on her web site that she can no longer hold that Francis is or ever was a true Pope, the Vicar of Christ. The reason for Miss Barnhardt’s change of mind is found in the very opening paragraphs of her blog post:

It is now clear to me, and I feel it morally incumbent upon me given my position to publicly state that I believe Jorge Bergoglio, “Francis” to be an Antipope, never having been canonically elected, and that Joseph Ratzinger, Pope Benedict XVI is still the Roman Pontiff.

St. Francis of Assisi Prophecy:

“A Man, not Canonically Elected, will be raised to the Pontificate… In those days Jesus Christ will send them not a true Pastor, but a Destroyer”

[UPDATE: Some people dispute the authenticity of this prophecy, claiming it was concocted by certain dissident members of the Franciscan order in the 13th century and only subsequently attributed to St. Francis. Whether that be true or false, always keep in mind that ultimately, the case against the Vatican II antipopes is not based on private revelation.]

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

Fr. Joseph A. Ratzinger

“Benedict XVI”

On April 19, 2005, the German “cardinal” Fr. Joseph Ratzinger was elected “Pope” Benedict XVI. This page is dedicated to demonstrating that the past and present beliefs and actions of this individual reveal that he is not a Catholic, and therefore he cannot 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 is not even a bishop but only a priest (ordained in 1951).

TWO YEARS OF FRANCIS:
A New Interview

Remember?

Marking a milestone of two years “in office”, Mr. Jorge Bergoglio, the Vatican’s Apostate-in-Chief who goes by the pseudonym “Pope Francis”, has granted yet another interview to the press, this time to Valentina Alazraki of the Mexico-based Noticieros Televisa. Vatican Radio has just released a full translation, so we are posting links to both the original and the translation:

Highlights/Lowlights:

  • Why Novus Ordos in Mexico are becoming Protestants: “Clericalism”, “distance”, and “disastrous homilies” that are “lessons in theology”!

“The Great Reformer”:
Another Book causes Problems for the Vatican

A few months after the release of Antonio Socci’s inconvenient book Non È Francesco, in which the author claims that Benedict XVI’s resignation was invalid and Francis is not in fact the Pope, another book has now appeared that is getting Francis into hot water, though this time the dispute over Francis’ validity was entirely unintended by the author. The book in question is Austen Ivereigh’s 445-page biography The Great Reformer: Francis and the Making of a Radical Pope.

Dr. Ivereigh, once the press secretary of the “Archbishop” of Westminster, “Cardinal” Cormac Murphy-O’Connor, is a veteran journalist and author.

Non È Francesco:
Pressure mounts on Vatican as New Book disputes Francis’ Legitimacy

On September 24, we were the first English-speaking web site to provide information about Antonio Socci’s explosive new book Non È Francesco: La Chiesa Nella Grande Tempesta (“It’s Not Francis: The Church in a Great Tempest”), a work in which the Italian Novus Ordo journalist makes the case that Benedict XVI’s resignation in February 2013 was invalid and therefore the man elected to replace him is not in fact the Pope. (See our original post here.)

non-e-francesco-socci2.jpgThe timing of the release of this book is surely no accident — it first hit the shelves throughout Italy on October 3, two days before Francis’ Synod on the Family will open, a Vatican gathering of select Modernist “bishops” that has the potential to revolutionize Novus Ordo Church law and/or practice with regard to the reception of the “sacraments” by the divorced and “remarried”, that is, by unrepentant public adulterers.

Explosive New Book Argues Benedict XVI is Still Pope

Not that we want to say, “We told you so”, but… we told you so!

Days before the controversial Synod on the Family is set to begin in Rome, a synod whose decisions may force many people who are currently part of the Vatican II Church to reevaluate their position with respect to whether Jorge Bergoglio’s claim to the papacy is valid and legitimate, the Italian daily Il Foglio reports that journalist and author Antonio Socci (The Fourth Secret of Fatima) will be releasing a 296-page book in which he makes the case that the resignation of “Pope” Benedict XVI in February of 2013 was invalid.
