So alone in St. Peter’s Square…
Vatican’s Human Fraternity Extravaganza ‘Not Alone’ Flops as No One Shows Up
Getting a front-row seat wasn’t terribly difficult…
Imagine it’s the first-ever World Meeting on Human Fraternity and nobody cares.
That is exactly what happened on Saturday, June 10, in Rome. Under the ironic motto #NotAlone, the event’s organizers and contributors found themselves very much alone as they put on a nearly 5-hour long spectacle in St. Peter’s Square that almost nobody cared to attend.
#NotAlone was Quite Alone
According to the Silere Non Possum blog, “Those few people present were tourists, who didn’t stay, and friends of the Franciscan cardinal”, by whom they mean Mauro Gambetti, who is the ‘Archpriest’ of St.… READ MORE

Encyclical Letter Fratelli Tutti
on Fraternity and Social Friendship
October 3, 2020
The Vatican’s endless text factory has just released another monster of a document: Jorge Bergoglio (a.k.a. “Pope Francis”) has released his third Encyclical Letter, after Lumen Fidei (2013) and Laudato Si’ (2015). It is entitled Fratelli Tutti (“Brothers All”).
In its English version, Fratelli Tutti has 42,994 words. It consists of eight chapters that include a total of 287 numbered paragraphs, and it has 288 footnotes. The vast majority of them are references to himself, his own documents, his own addresses, and those of the conciliar and post-conciliar pseudo-magisterium.… READ MORE

Benedict XVI implicated as former Vatican Official accused of committing Sexual Abuse in Secretariat of State
The fact that “Pope” Francis warned against the sin of gossip in his Angelus address for the umpteenth time today may be no accident: A new sex abuse scandal is rocking the Vatican II Sect, and this time it’s about criminal behavior allegedly committed inside Vatican City, between adults (but not consensual), by an official working for the Secretariat of State in close contact with “Pope” Benedict XVI. Complaints to superiors reportedly fell on deaf ears, and Benedict XVI himself is accused of simply transferring the alleged offender elsewhere, eventually.… READ MORE

Today, two significant developments took place regarding the Francis-McCarrick-Viganò drama: The Mexican television station Televisa released a lengthy interview its journalist Valentina Alazraki conducted with the “Pope”, in which the Jesuit apostate declares that he had no knowledge whatsoever of the accusations of sexual misconduct against Ex-“Cardinal” Theodore McCarrick; and a former personal secretary and long-time aide to McCarrick published correspondence from his erstwhile boss showing that “Cardinals” Donald Wuerl and Pietro Parolin were very much aware of the restrictions that had been placed on McCarrick by Benedict XVI, something Wuerl first denied and then denied having denied — sort of.… READ MORE

Vatican Secretary of State to attend Bilderberg Conference
[UPDATE 15-JUN-2018: Vatican Spokesman explains why Parolin attended Bilderberg]
This is a difficult topic to write about without having half of all readers immediately run away screaming, “conspiracy nuts!” We have no choice but to take this risk because the issue is too serious to ignore, and facts are facts. (For a sobering reality check on what sundry Popes have said about certain conspiracies against the Catholic Church, please see here.)
The official web site of the notorious globalist Bilderberg Conference has released its participants list for this year’s meeting, which is scheduled for June 7-10 and will be held at the NH Lingotto hotel in Turin, Italy.… READ MORE
