Nottambula:  what would it take for you to believe that Benedict is not pope?  Assuming he did not say the quote above, would you believe he was pope if he DID say it?

Seeing as how the Vatican has gone out of its way to present this as a valid statement made by Pope Benedict (which has now been exposed as fake news), and just as with that whole "Lettergate" scandal proven to be a forgery (manipulating a photo of Benedict's letter to give the appearance that he and Bergoglio are in complete continuity with one another); anything alleged to be said by Benedict in support of Bergoglio, is HIGHLY suspect.

Frank Walker from Canon212.com coined the term "BenedictBot" some time ago. Ann Barnhardt acknowledged this in a blog post the other day. https://www.barnhardt.biz/2019/07/05/canon212-com-s-frank-walker-nailed-it-when-he-coined-the-term-benedictbot-quotes-attributed-to-pope-benedict-are-being-fabricated-by-vaticannews/

This behavior of falsifying statements gives the impression that "Team Bergoglio" knows Benedict is still the true Pope, and is acutely aware that he has a growing number of supporters who believe he has always remained so.  But as long as Benedict is under the "care" of Bergoglio (as a virtual prisoner in the Vatican*) all communications put forth telling us these are Benedict's statements, cannot be automatically presumed to be authentic. (I personally believe the recent essay attributed to Benedict on the sex abuse crisis could have been partially written by him, but that other parts were forged because it didn't sound like him at all.)

As for your hypothetical question on whether I would continue to believe Benedict is still the Pope (if ever he did say "Francis" is), is entirely moot based on the fact that Pope Benedict has not properly renounced the Petrine Office according to Canon Law, specifically Canon 332.2. Therefore, any such statement would be an impossibility to be true.


*Some recent tweets from Veri Catholici:

Quote from: Veri Catholici
Bergoglio was never pope but rules by means of hearsay put out by Cardinal Sodano on Feb 11, 2013 with the tacit consent of the Cardinals who wanted B16 out so as to hide the report on Sodomy at the top of the Church Hierarchy.

‏Immediately after reading Non Solum propter, Sodano stood up in the Consistory and shouted, This announcement is like a bolt of lightning out of heaven! We believe Sodano play acted to hide the conspiracy, just as Bergoglio came to Rome without a spare underwear as a pretense

If this is correct, the conspiracy was not hatched on Feb 11, but in the Fall of 2012, before Ganswein was appointed to the Pontifical Household. That appointment was a concession to B16 to guarantee him certain personal security during imprisonment that was already decided.

This would in turn explain the feverish activity of Bergoglio's agents at Rome in the Fall of 2012, as reported by Henry Sire in @DictatorPope

In retrospect, the imprisonment of Benedict and the Revolution of the Lavender Mafia in Feb 2013 was announced to the world by the universal praise of MSM journalists for Bergoglio and their refusal to investigate the abdication, then and now.

When all the enemies of the Church praise anything, you can be sure its of the devil and criminal.

Lastly, although Louie Verrecchio has seemingly gotten away from his "Resignationist" position (I don't see him writing about it anymore), this was a good article from Aug. 2016. Louie appeared to speculate that Benedict's status is that of a prisoner (sending out red flags); and as I would certainly agree, all roads do indeed lead to Fatima.

    I highly recommend reading “The Secret Of Benedict XVI - Still The Pope”, by Antonio Socci. It is unbelievably good.

    He not only makes the obvious comprehensive case for what happened and why, Truth to the nth power, he is making the case that what Benedict XVI did was not a strange, random, practical choice at all .... but is in direct response to God Himself in intimate conversation - Papal communion with his Lord Jesus Christ. In a way that Prophets are always closely linked to the mind and will of Almighty God, Benedict XVI has been and currently is profoundly connected to God in “prayer and contemplation” and is now doing His precise will.

    He did what he did because God directed him to do so. 

    It is time for judgement and vengeance against evil people and this is part of God’s plan to bring righteous wrath down on their heads. At the same time it is time for God’s mercy, a time for restoration and healing for those whose faith has been attacked by these evil men. The Zchirch is full of filth. These people think they are having a party. They are merely the substance in a boil that is being lanced. 

    Pope Benedict clearly states he intends to devote his remaining life in full to “prayer and contemplation”. Evil men dismiss and laugh at “prayer and contemplation” ... reflecting their own barren lives. The See Of Peter is all that matters to them - Bishop of Rome; Governor of the world spanning Church; maker of rules; commander of obedience. Prayer?! Contemplation?! Yeah, yeah, that’s what old people with a lot of time on their hands do.

    Holy and righteous men, however, know that “prayer and contemplation” is essentially the *entire point* of being Pope. That *is* the Office of Moses whose true power came from his moments on the Mountains; his moments in the Cloud amidst the Holy Temple; direct communion between Almighty God and his chosen Vicar, Prophet, King.

    The See Of Rome without the Munus is like the camp of Israel before the Golden Calf. God is not there. Great evil is being done. Yes, Aaron is *in charge*. No, Aaron is not an agent of God. God’s agent is on the Mountain. Their time is almost up.

    Could Socci be Implying "the End of the World" is near if the Pope doesn't Consecrate Russia by Name?

    The respected Catholic scholar Dr. Peter Kwasniewski in reviewing the Antonio Socci book "The Secret of Benedict XVI: Is he still Pope?" said:

    "Socci['s]... careful analysis... above all, the interpretation [of] canon lawyers... argue that the resignation lacks several conditions for validity."

    In the last page of the book, Socci's "careful analysis" of the lack of Benedict XVI's "resignation... validity" brings him to the conclusion that we must be:

    "United to Pope Benedict [not pope emeritus Benedict]."

    In Twitter on July 26, Socci wrote:

    "Bergoglio [not Pope Francis]... is dismantling the Catholic Church."

    The world renowned Fatima expert Socci at the end of the book revealed from little known "documents" that quotes from Fatima Seer Jacinta Marto have her "speaking about":

    "[T]he 'end of the world' if people 'do not do penance and change their lives.'"
    (The Secret of Benedict XVI, Page 152)

    The book on page 155 says "at Fatima there was great insistence on RUSSIA, on CONSECRATION":

     "[A]t Fatima there was great insistence on Russia, on consecration and conversion of Russia. [Fatima seer] Sister Lucia said, in the dialogue of 1957, that "Russia will be the instrument to punish the entire world..."

    "Here, then, is the greatness of the design of Benedict XVI: in an insane historical moment."

    The greatest exorcist of our time said Pope John Paul II wanted to consecrate Russia by name but did not do so as Our Lady of Fatima asked:

    "Fr. Gabriele Amorth, who at the time was the chief exorcist of Rome [said]. 'I was there on March 25 [1984] in St. Peter's Square; I was in the front row, practically within touching distance of the Holy Father... John Paul II wanted to consecrate Russia, but his entourage did not...'"

    "'... His Holiness consecrated the world on his knees, he added a sentence not included in the distributed version that instead said to consecrate 'especially those nations of which you yourself [Our Lady of Fatima] have asked for their consecration.' So, indirectly, this included Russia. However, a specific consecration has not yet been made.'"
    (Church Militant, "Pope John Paul II Wanted To Consecrate Russia by Name But Didn't," May 23, 2017)

    This is my conjecture formed obviously on incomplete information on the mind of Socci, however I assume he knows the importance of the consecration and knows that Russia hasn't been consecrated by name. With these assumptions, it seems it could be possible that Socci may be implying that the "end of the world" may be near if the Pope doesn't consecrate Russia by name as John Paul II failed to do.

    It is obvious who he thinks is the Pope as he said in the last page of his book. He said that we Catholics must be:

    "United to Pope Benedict."

    Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church. Jacinta said we must do penance and change our lives. Offer the sacrifice of praying more and going to Mass more as well as fasting more at least in very small ways, without neglecting or interfering with your state in life, for the Pope to consecrate Russia by name and for the restoration of the Church.

  • Start at 6:54. According to this analysis, Benedict XVI's resignation isn't legal, and it's not because he was under duress as a main reason. I'm not saying Benedict XVI is a real pope (there's been anti-popes since John XXIII all the way up to Frank), but for argument sake, if Benedict XVI is a legitimate Pontiff, then he's still the pope and his "resignation" is null and void as detailed in the video, and, again, it's not because the main reason was he was under duress.


    Thank you for posting this. Wow!
    Pray for the consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

    2 Corinthians 4:3-4

    And if our gospel be also hid, it is hid to them that are lost, In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of unbelievers, that the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should not shine unto them.
