“The Supreme Shepherd and Vicar of Christ on Earth, who, being a prisoner in the Vatican… in that greatest crisis of the Church, he who is obligated to speak in due time will remain silent.”Our Lady of Good Success (approved)
Ever wonder why even good Catholics, men and women you respect, sometimes irrationally and hostilely reject any possibility that Benedict’s resignation might have been coerced, and that he may not be a free man? To be sure, there are myriad reasons. The biggest one I see is pride. Actually, being attached to any sin will do it, but pride is the biggest culprit. See 2 Thessolians 2:10-11. I’ve written quite a lot on social media about the blinding spirit of the age, but that’s not the topic of this post. Let’s think about this for a minute.
Consider this scenario: Suppose your elderly father, grandfather, or any dear loved one had hired a live-in nurse or assistant. Suppose further that this beloved family member (we’ll call him “grandpa” for the sake of clarity) was always loving, communicative, and sharp when you would visit, and often called you up in between visits.
Then, one day, that all stops. Suddenly when you call, grandpa no longer answers the phone, Mr. Nurse does. When you ask to speak with grandpa, he says “grandpa is sleeping. How can I help you?” When you visit, grandpa is out of it, and seems more lethargic and slow than the normal decline for his age or health. When you ask grandpa to go to lunch, he asks Mr. Nurse for permission. When you ask grandpa to visit for Christmas, he says he’ll talk to Mr. Nurse and get back to you. When you ask Mr. Nurse how grandpa is doing, he tells you grandpa is doing great. When you visit with grandpa, Mr. Nurse sits there monitoring everything grandpa says.
Then, you find out that Mr. Nurse had an attorney transfer all of grandpa’s property, and all of your inheritance, to Mr. Nurse. You further learn that Mr. Nurse went to probate court and became grandpa’s “legal guardian,” and has taken over all of grandpa’s ability to make legal decisions. When you make legal inquiries, you learn that grandpa was deemed of sound mind and body, and had competently “agreed” to all of these things, but none of it seems right.
This is a classic fact pattern of what’s called an “elder abuse” case. Does it sound familiar?
This happens quite often, unfortunately. Google “elder abuse attorney,” and you’ll see that there is an entire field of law that has developed, because people do bad things to and take advantage of older people.
Now, let’s add to the fact pattern. Suppose, grandpa is looking increasingly unkempt and malnourished, and even is showing some signs that he might be getting abused. Nevertheless, when you make inquiries, Mr. Nurse says grandpa is in fantastic health, and is surprisingly lucid for his age. When you ask to speak with grandpa, Mr. Nurse says he can’t come to the phone right now.
Suppose further that you find out that the nurse who now owns all of your grandfather’s things, including your inheritance, is a horrible, horrible person. I mean really shockingly bad. So bad that it’s embarrassing to say it out loud, because it just sounds too outlandish. You learn that he’s destroying all of grandpa’s life’s work and charitable organizations. Terminating his company’s employees. Changing his mission statement. In fact, he’s doing things that can only be described as evil, like allowing cocaine infused homosexual orgies (see also here, and here) and pagan ceremonies to take place in grandpa’s house.
Nevertheless, when you complain, even people you respect call you a crazy conspiracist. They say that Mr. Nurse would never do such a thing. That grandpa is lucid and agreed to all of this. That everything is fine, and you should trust Mr. Nurse.
Then one day, grandpa sends you a letter that slightly disagrees with something Mr. Nurse is doing, and Mr. Nurse changes his tune. Suddenly grandpa’s health is not fine. He sleeps all day. His mind is going. He doesn’t know what he’s talking about. He’s being manipulated by other nurses who dislike Mr. Nurse. You should shut up and trust Mr. Nurse.
I’m obviously talking about Pope Benedict XVI. Do I personally know for certain that Pope Benedict is being coerced and abused? Of course not. I’m not there. Also, the entire world media and, unfortunately, the Catholic Church are trying to convince us that everything is fine… Meanwhile, Pope Benedict is locked up firmly behind Vatican walls, and all information to and from him is tightly controlled.
But many of us have long suspected it. We’ve caught the Vatican lying about him. We’ve heard them put words into his mouth that sound nothing like him. We’ve caught the Vatican press office photoshopping his letters. Recently, we saw that Archbishop Gänswein was lying about Pope Benedict, presumably at Bergoglio’s instruction.
Now, today, we have Archbishop Vigano, the hero of our age, blowing yet another whistle. Vigano informs us with certainty that Gänswein is as creepy as we suspected, and is Pope Benedict’s “handler.” Archbishop Vigano writes: “It is time to reveal the control that has been abusively and systematically exercised by Abp. Gänswein towards the Supreme Pontiff Benedict XVI, ever since the beginning of his pontificate.” Read that letter, please. Read everything Vigano writes. Start here, and learn that this began well before Benedict’s “resignation.”
As an aside, take another look at that quote above. Archbishop Vigano is an extremely careful and meticulous man, which is probably why he’s still alive. I can’t help noticing that the word “Emeritus” does not appear in the title “Supreme Pontiff Benedict XVI.” Nor can I help noticing the stark contrast of the title he uses with Benedict, and the fact that he calls Francis “Pope Bergoglio.” I’ve long suspected that Vigano is winding up for a big reveal, but I’ll save that for another blog post …
Let’s get back to the original question: “Ever wonder why even good Catholics, men and women you respect, sometimes irrationally and hostilely reject any possibility that Benedict’s resignation might have been coerced, and that he may not be a free man?” I suggest to you that one answer to this question is that this situation requires action. NOW. Immediately. So long as this is all a conspiracy theory, we can sit on our butts and hypothesize about it, without injuring our reputations, income, or putting our lives at risk.
If you knew Mr. Nurse was (probably) drugging, and abusing grandpa and stealing your inheritance, what would you do? Probably resort to the legal system, right? Well, what if another nurse came to you and said that he saw Mr. Nurse doing it the day after you caught Mr. Nurse lying about grandpa? You’d go get grandpa the hell out of there, if you’re not a pathetic coward with no love in his heart.
We’ve long suspected that Pope Benedict might be getting coerced, abused, and lied about. We prayed for the Magisterium to undertake legal options to remedy the situation. But this week we learned that it is almost certainly true that Pope Benedict XVI is basically a hostage, that legal options are impotent, and that the magisterium is unwilling to help (may God have mercy on their souls).
Bishop Gänswein is lying about Pope Benedict, Pope Benedict does not appear to be free, and we have one of the last, if not the last, trustworthy bishop in the world telling all of us that the Pope is under Gänswein’s (and therefore Bergoglio’s) systematic abusive control, and that he has witnessed it.
Read that again, friends. The only bishop who has put it all on the line for truth, and therefore the only bishop who we know for certain we can trust, is telling us that Pope Benedict XVI has been subject to systematic abusive control “ever since the beginning of his pontificate.”
I’ve been angry about this for years. But after that, I’m spitting nails. I can’t type what I want to say. I want these <censored> away from my Pope, today. This instant. How dare they.
We need to rescue Pope Benedict XVI, and we need to do it now.
This is the only acceptable response left to us, and this is the exact reason so many people do not want to talk about this situation: it demands action. Tough. If we believe what we profess, we have no choice. We cannot stand idly by and hope for the best if there is even the possibility that our pope, Emeritus or not, is being abused. We simply must act.
God chose you to be born and alive right now. He is big enough and capable enough to be that precise. Why did he do that? Why were you chosen to serve Him while the world is the way it is? Was it to sit idly by and hope for the best? I think not.
Make no mistake, friends, this is worth dying over. This is about Christ’s Bride on Earth, and His Vicar.
The debate about the validity of Benedict’s resignation is completely irrelevant at this point, as is our respective opinions regarding whether or not Benedict is a good pope. I personally do not think he is, but that is utterly irrelevant. He is a human being, an old man, apparently a victim, and I can’t help but love him, regardless of his failings.
We need Benedict XVI himself to address us, and he needs to be hundreds of miles away from the creepy bastards in the Vatican when he does.
I’m ready, eager even, to die for my faith and for what is right, and I know there are other men out there like me. But going to the Vatican alone and banging on the doors is just going to get us arrested and potentially hurt while accomplishing nothing. We need a movement, and we need one fast. Let’s build it, so that we can storm the castle, and get Pope Benedict XVI to safety before Ash Wednesday, preferably with the assistance of the Italian authorities.
Folks, don’t let the bastards gaslight you. It was always perfectly acceptable to want to be given proof that Pope Benedict XVI is ok, and being treated well.
Now it’s mandatory, and it’s worth dying for. Benedict must be freed from the gestapo, immediately.
Let’s get started. Let’s make some noise. We can begin by using these hash tags to get them trending. #FreePopeBenedict #RescueB16
In the meantime, let’s also not forget to pray for the Holy Father. The following link gives some good reasons why we must, as well as many helpful resources. https://fromrome.info/2019/12/19/join-the-league-of-prayer-for-pope-benedict-xvi/
P.S. Do frail 90-year old men fall down and hurt (only) their eye, as the Vatican claims in the link below, without causing any shoulder, neck, and head injuries as well? If your 90 year old grandpa fell that hard, would you have gone and gotten him checked out by a doctor, and maybe gotten X-Ray or two? They think you’re stupid.
Edit: While Archbishop Vigano deserves credit for exposing the truth, putting his life at risk, and defending Holy Mother Church, I was unfair when I said that he was the only bishop who “has put it all on the line for truth.” That’s actually not true – there’s one more, and he began much earlier than Vigano. His name is Bishop Renee Henry Gracida. See here, for example: “There is some evidence that Benedict was forced to resign. If that is true, his resignation was invalid. If Pope Benedict’s resignation was forced it was invalid and he is still the Pope of the Church, but with the chair of Saint Peter occupied by an antipope.”
Sorry, Bishop Gracida. Thank you for being a voice in the wilderness.
