TWO YEARS OF FRANCIS:
A New Interview

francis-actor.jpg

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

francis-silhouette.jpg

 

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.

“It’s Not Francis”:
Explosive New Book Argues Benedict XVI is Still Pope

[Update 01-OCT-14: More Details on Socci’s New Book, here]

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.

A “Siri Thesis” for Ratzinger Fans…

Resignationism 2.0:
Enter “Cardinal” Scola

benedict-vs-francis.jpg

Things are topsy-turvy in Novus Ordo Land. Now they even have their very own “Siri Thesis.”

After the initial appearance in late 2013 of the position we have termed “Resignationism” — the idea that Benedict XVI’s resignation was invalid and therefore he is still Pope, and Francis a usurper — there followed a few rounds of additional theorizing by adherents of the thesis, especially after Ratzinger explicitly affirmed to a journalist that his resignation was valid indeed. At the time, we predicted that Benedict’s affirmation would still not put an end to the speculations, and we were proven right when Antonio Socci wrote his follow-up article “The Plot Thickens.” We ended our own commentary on Socci’s take with the words: “Stay tuned, everyone.

Resignationism Continued…

Now “Abp.” Ganswein Weighs In:
Benedict’s Emeritus Status 
“Corresponds to Reality”

“Archbishop” Georg Ganswein, Secretary to Benedict XVI

Italian journalist and author Antonio Socci is back with more on the neverending drama surrounding what we have termed the Resignationist thesis, the idea that the resignation of Benedict XVI (Joseph Ratzinger) was invalid and he is therefore still the legitimate Pope of the Catholic Church, Francis being an impostor. (For those who don’t know, the position of Novus Ordo Watch is that all “Popes” after Pius XII have been impostors. More on that here.)

In his latest contribution, published March 2, 2014 for the Italian El Libero, Socci reveals the “serious answer” Benedict XVI’s private secretary, “Abp.” Georg Gänswein, has given to the question why Benedict sticks with the title “Pope Emeritus” (as opposed to reverting simply to “Cardinal Ratzinger”, as would have been expected) and still retains various papal insignia, such as his papal coat of arms, the continued wearing of the white cassock and zucchetto, etc.

Benedict XVI Speaks: “My Resignation Was Valid”

benedict-francis-zucchetto.jpg

Bad news for Resignationists — those who believe that Benedict XVI’s resignation was invalid because brought about by force. While it would allow them a convenient, non-sedevacantist way out of the problems with Francis by saying the true Pope is still Benedict, it is Joseph Ratzinger himself now who has explicitly denied the rumors and confirmed that he gave up his claim to the papacy by his own free will.

Responding to a letter written him by the well-known Italian Vatican journalist Andrea Tornielli of La Stampa, the “Pope Emeritus” clearly states:

There is absolutely no doubt regarding the validity of my resignation from the Petrine ministry.

Resignationism hitting the mainstream…

Italian Journalist Antonio Socci:
Ratzinger Resignation “May Not Be Valid”

Author and Journalist Antonio Socci

One year after Benedict XVI’s historic announcement of his impending resignation from the “papacy”, well-respected Italian journalist and author Antonio Socci reflects on what led Fr. Joseph Ratzinger to give up his claim to the papal office on February 28, 2013.

Writing for the Italian daily Libero on Feb. 12, 2014, Socci says that details about the resignation have emerged that may render it invalid under church law. (Both Novus Ordo and traditional Catholic canon law state that, among other possible reasons, resignation obtained through fear unjustly inflicted is invalid; see Novus Ordo Canon 188Catholic Canon 185.) The details he describes are most interesting and by no means mere fantastic hypotheses.

Update on “Fr.” Kramer’s Rejection of Francis

Rev. Paul Kramer: “Benedict XVI Still Pope”
– The Rise of “Resignationism”

On November 29, 2013, we had happily reported that the well-known resistance traditionalist Rev. Paul Kramer, editor of The Devil’s Final Battle, had rejected Jorge Bergoglio’s claim to be the Pope of the Catholic Church and declared that the Holy See was vacant. Shortly thereafter, however, Kramer began claiming that Benedict XVI — officially the “Pope Emeritus” — was still reigning despite his resignation effective February 28 of this year. Here is what he posted on his Facebook page the day after announcing “sede vacante”:

The reason Kramer gives for his new position is that he believes Ratzinger’s resignation to have been invalid because it was obtained, so he is convinced, through coercion (acc.

No, it’s not a rumor, it’s not a theory, and it’s not fiction. It is fact, confirmed by the account printed in the Vatican’s official collection of ecclesiastical documents, the Acta Apostolicae Sedis (“Acts of the Apostolic See”), vol. CV (105), n. 4-5, pp. 367-369. This most recent installment of the Acta was just released and can be downloaded as a PDF file directly from the Vatican web site here.

After the resignation of Benedict XVI, which took effect at 8:00 pm Central European Time on February 28, 2013, the Novus Ordo cardinals met in conclave to elect his successor.

Francis gets a Thumbs-Up from Hell’s Apostle:

Apostate Hans Kung “Extremely Delighted” with Election of Bergoglio as “Pope” Francis

Apostate “theologian” Hans Kung, peritus at Vatican II but eventually censured even by the New Church, denies practically every dogma in the book, from papal infallibility to the Most Holy Trinity. Despite having had his teaching license revoked by the Novus Ordo Vatican in 1979 (that is, he was stilled allowed to teach, but not under the label “Catholic”), he is still considered a priest “in good standing” in his diocese of Basel, Switzerland. The fact that Kung should be “extremely delighted” at the election of Jorge Mario Bergoglio as the new head of the Vatican II Church speaks volumes.

Strengthened by divine Providence, may the new pope « confirm his brethren in the faith »[1], with the authority which Saint Pius X proclaimed at the beginning of his pontificate: “We do not wish to be, and with the Divine assistance never shall be aught before human society but the Minister of God, of whose authority We are the depositary.
