Benedict XVI’s Letter on Sex Abuse Crisis:
Highlights & Reaction Roundup
On April 10, 2019, the “Pope Emeritus” Benedict XVI, with the prior permission of “Pope” Francis, published a 6000-word letter on the sexual abuse crisis in the German Klerusblatt (a regional periodical for clergy), which was released at the same time on the internet in various languages. The German original and the English translation of the missive are available here:
The editor of Inside the Vatican, Robert Moynihan, has opined that the letter is “absolutely the most important text Benedict has published since his resignation of the papacy in February 2013.”… READ MORE

The Real and the False Sister Lucy of Fatima:
The Scientific Evidence is here!
Not the same person: the real Sr. Lucy, left, vs. the impostor
On Aug. 1, 2018, we published a post announcing that scientific evidence had been gathered for the first time that proves that the woman commonly accepted as Sr. Lucy of Fatima in the past few decades is not in fact the real Sr. Lucy (Lúcia de Jesus Rosa dos Santos) to whom Our Lady appeared at Fatima, Portugal, in 1917, and again at Tuy in 1929.
Yesterday, Mar. 25, the web site Sister Lucy Truth was launched.… READ MORE

Courageous Reporter asks Vatican Press Panel about Francis’ Cover-Up of Zanchetta Case
Inés San Martín questions “Abp.” Charles Scicluna on Feb. 24, 2019
Some light fireworks could be seen today at the final press conference wrapping up the sex abuse summit in the Vatican that had begun on Feb. 21.
As is customary, the press panel took questions from journalists in the audience after its presentations, and the last one came from Inés San Martín, who is the Rome Bureau Chief for the mainstream Novus Ordo news site Crux. Herself from Buenos Aires, Argentina, San Martin is for that reason somewhat connected to the current pretend-pope, but this did not keep her from asking the following explosive question, clearly embarrassing to Francis and to the other Vatican authorities.… READ MORE

Comedy Hour at Vatican Abuse Summit: Homosexuality isn’t “Something that really Predisposes to Sin”
The Vatican is currently in the midst of a turbulent four-day summit on sexual abuse. The conference gathers the highest-ranking prelates from every nation to try to find some kind of a solution to its ongoing scandals involving the sexual abuse of minors. Although there has also been abuse of so-called “vulnerable adults”, especially seminarians, the Vatican has seen fit not to address that at the current time, contrary to its original announcement.
Yesterday, Feb. 21, “Pope” Francis opened the conference with a list of 21 points for “reflection”.… READ MORE

Former Novus Ordo Cardinal returned to Lay State

This hasn’t happened to the former “Cardinal” Theodore McCarrick since the 1950’s: His official address is now Mister again. Ordained a priest on May 31, 1958, the disgraced sex abuser Theodore McCarrick will remain “a priest for ever according to the order of Melchisedech” (Ps 109:4); however, the Novus Ordo authorities are no longer allowing him to exercise this priesthood that was indelibly imprinted on his soul on the day of his ordination. For all intents and purposes, therefore, he is a layman again.… READ MORE

Report: Francis Knowingly Promoted Lewd “Bishop” from Argentina to Vatican Position
[UPDATE 22-JAN-19: Vatican spokesman Alessandro Gisotti issues Second Statement on Zanchetta case]
With approximately one month to go before the much-touted sex abuse summit to be held in Rome, yesterday a story broke that can only be described as dragging the Vatican from the frying pan into the fire.
Earlier this month, it was revealed that “Bp.” Gustavo Óscar Zanchetta of Orán, Argentina, is accused of the sexual abuse of seminarians. The embattled Novus Ordo bishop had abruptly resigned from his diocese in 2017, then mysteriously vanished for a few months, only to be appointed by “Pope” Francis to a comfortable Vatican position created specifically for him.… READ MORE

Explosive New Book: In the Closet of the Vatican to be released on First Day of Abuse Summit
The year 2018 was a tough one for Club Francis, but it may have only been a warm-up compared to what might be coming down the pike this year.
The French sociologist, journalist, and author Frederic Martel is about to release an explosive book that is poised to rock the Vatican much more than “Abp.” Carlo Vigano’s letters last year ever did. The work is entitled In the Closet of the Vatican: Power, Homosexuality, Hypocrisy and is scheduled to be published on Feb.… READ MORE

Francis opts for Old Testament Blessing at New Year’s Angelus
At the end of the Angelus prayer on Tuesday, Jan. 1, 2019, the “Holy Father” Francis (Jorge Bergoglio) decided to nix the usual Catholic blessing invoking the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, and replaced it with a blessing from the Old Testament found in Numbers 6:22-26:

Sixty years without a Pope — how could this happen?

60 Years of Sede Vacante
During last year’s Fatima Conference sponsored by the Congregation of Mary Immaculate Queen (CMRI) in Spokane, Washington, Mr. Mario Derksen, pictured below, delivered a lecture on the subject of 60 years of sede vacante since the death of Pope Pius XII on October 9, 1958. We are happy to be able to share the 42-minute audio recording and also a written transcript in this post.
Looking at the extreme devastation of the Catholic landscape that has been wrought in the past 60 years, Mr.… READ MORE

Made of Sand: Vatican’s New Nativity Scene Unveiled
Photo credit: Marina Testino
You may recall that last year the Vatican’s Christmas nativity scene was basically a harrowing homo-erotic horror show. Compared to that, virtually anything is an improvement.
This year, the powers that be in the Modernist Unholy See are presenting a nativity scene made entirely of sand, sculpted by the professional team of Rich Varano, right in St. Peter’s Square. The unveiling and inauguration took place today, and Vatican News has released a video of the entire ceremony:
In case you don’t care to watch the entire 75-minute video, Rome Reports has summarized the event in a brief clip:
The core of this year’s nativity scene, pictured at the top of this post, is odd.… READ MORE

Francis cracks down on “Bp.” Athanasius Schneider, orders him to reduce his traveling abroad
[UPDATE 08-NOV-2018 01:17 UTC: The German paper Die Tagespost reports that “Bp.” Schneider says the Vatican has merely asked him to ensure that his travels outside his diocese do not exceed the 30 days’ limit legislated in canon law. He has not been censured or forbidden from traveling. UPDATE 16:52 UTC: Schneider speaks to Life Site to explain the situation.]
We all know that “Pope” Francis is a big friend of migration, but even he has his limits when it comes to tolerating persistent moving about.… READ MORE

Vatican Synod proposes “Certification Systems” for Web Sites to counter “Fake News”
You have to admit: The Modernists in Vatican City have a sense of humor. The final document of their oh-so-important “Youth Synod”, which has happily been released only in Italian so far, includes the following paragraph (translation by Rorate Caeli):

146. The Synod hopes that in the Church appropriate official bodies for digital culture and evangelization are established at appropriate levels, which, with the indispensable contribution of young people, promote ecclesial action and reflection in this environment. Among their functions, in addition to promoting the exchange and dissemination of good practices at a personal and community level, and to develop adequate tools for digital education and evangelization, could also a [sic] manage certification systems of Catholic sites, to counter the spread of fake news regarding the Church, and looking for ways to persuade public authorities to promote increasingly stringent policies and tools for the protection of minors on the web.
