    Benedict's death has certainly accelerated the aggressiveness Vatican expert Politi: attacks on Francis will increase Just after the death of Benedict XVI, more and more conservative bishops voiced their criticism of Pope Francis. Just coincidence - or is there more to it? In the interview, Italian Vatican expert Marco Politi gives his assessment. Since the death of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, voices from the College of Bishops have been piling up criticising Pope Francis. Archbishop Georg Gänswein's memoirs, in which he reports on his time with Benedict XVI, contain passages that at least indirectly criticise decisions made by the...

    Pope Benedict Issues Warning From The Grave, Penned 16 Essays To Be Released Only After His Death Warns Of Radical Manipulation, Gender Ideology, Sexual Perversion At Catholic Seminaries, Western Authoritarianism And Other Grave ConcernsBeloved Pope Benedict XVI passed away at the age of 95 on New Year’s Eve but left a warning behind. A book of essays penned by the Pope was published in the wake of his death but largely suppressed in the West, likely because it issues a grave warning regarding propaganda and woke ideology infiltrating the West. Benedict’s essays were written to warn people, and Catholics in...

    The Associated Press ^ | January 25, 2023 | By NICOLE WINFIELD
    VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis criticized laws that criminalize homosexuality as “unjust,” saying God loves all his children just as they are and called on Catholic bishops who support the laws to welcome LGBTQ people into the church. “Being homosexual isn’t a crime,” Francis said during an exclusive interview Tuesday with The Associated Press. Francis acknowledged that Catholic bishops in some parts of the world support laws that criminalize homosexuality or discriminate against the LGBTQ community, and he himself referred to the issue in terms of “sin.” But he attributed such attitudes to cultural backgrounds, and said bishops in...

    Just turned ninety-one, a proud traditionalist and very close to Ratzinger, Cardinal Joseph Zen, Archbishop Emeritus of Hong Kong, has always criticised the provisional agreement on the appointment of bishops that the Holy See signed with China in September 2018, renewed last October. He talks about Ratzinger's sanctity, agrees with Monsignor Georg Gänswein on the issue of the Latin Mass, asks Bergoglio for a change of pace and tells how he is living this moment of trial, after the police arrested him last May, later releasing him on bail - for "colluding with foreign forces" in the context of managing...

    Via Church Militant. Seminarians from Barcelona say they were scandalized when Pope Francis reportedly used the f-word and other expletives at a papal audience in Rome. According to testimonies from the seminarians, Francis ranted against “f***ing careerists who f*** up the lives of others.” The pope criticized “those who climb to show their a**,” the Italian media outlet Daily Compass reported on Monday. The trainee priests were shocked when Francis also reportedly insisted that priests should never deny absolution to penitents in the confessional under any circumstances. Eyewitnesses describe how the pontiff, at the audience on Dec. 10, tossed his...

    A group of Vatican conservatives apparently want to remove his woke, anti-capitalist successor Pope Francis in hopes of replacing him with one of their own. The backroom intrigue at the Vatican is heating up as religious Conservatives are plotting to overthrow Pope Francis, makes me think of Revelation 18, actually. This obviously is not the Church that Jesus started at the Cross, but as far as the ‘Whore of Babylon’ goes, it continues to be ‘right on the money’.

    “HABEMUS PAPAM.” I will never forget hearing over the radio that declaration in Latin from the College of Cardinals in the Vatican in 2005: “Habemus Papam—we have a pope.” Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger had been elected Pope. I was quite thrilled, since I had personally met the cardinal in 1988. Together with three other colleagues from the Seminary in Southern France (Faculté Jean Calvin, where I taught for 18 years), we had an extraordinary two hour meeting in the Vatican with the cardinal. This meeting was arranged for us by a well-connected Catholic priest from Aix-en-Provence, with whom our professors had...

    Father, into your hands I commend my spirit” (Lk 23:46). These were the final words spoken by the Lord on the cross; his last breath, as it were, which summed up what had been his entire life: a ceaseless self-entrustment into the hands of his Father. His were hands of forgiveness and compassion, healing and mercy, anointing and blessing, which led him also to entrust himself into the hands of his brothers and sisters. The Lord, open to the individuals and their stories that he encountered along the way, allowed himself to be shaped by the Father’s will. He shouldered...

    The Vatican announced Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI passed away Saturday morning at 9:34 a.m. He was 95 years old. He is most immediately remembered outside the Catholic Church for his surprise resignation — the first papal abdication since 1415 — and subsequent life as the world’s first "pope emeritus" in centuries. Benedict was born Joseph Ratzinger on April 16, 1927, in Bavaria. He came of age in Germany after World War I at the same time the Nazi regime was growing in power.
