Benedict Is Every Bit Part Of This Mess

Not for the first time, I read around of oh poor Benedict being the victim in the situation he himself contributed to create. Let me open some people’s big, blue eyes to reality.

Benedict, always the man for half measures, orders McCarrick to retire to a life of prayer and penance, but he is not man enough to have the fact widely known. It is difficult both to retire to a life of penance in secret, and to enforce such an outlandish order. It is also not surprising that such “orders” are then regularly disobeyed, as there cannot be much discipline when the one in charge has no guts to enforce it. But seriously: one who orders a punishment he does not want the world to know is clearly not ordering, but meowing. Particularly so, when it is well known how weak the man is at enforcing everything, from Summorum Pontificum to loyalty in his own domestics.

Benedict is, albeit without the evil intent of a Francis, every bit a part of the problem. The very thought that a Cardinal with a decades-long history of predatory homosexual behaviour should not be made an example in front of the entire world, setting the tone for how things are done, gives you the measure of the lack of effectiveness – nay: sheer lack of balls – of the man.

Also, if we want to talk about those who “knew and did nothing”, let us reflect on this: when Benedict received the famous 300 pages report on homosexuality – a report whose importance we begin only now to fully grasp – he was pretty much the most informed man of the entire Church about the homosexual scourge ravaging it.

What he did then was, actually, worse than nothing: he fled his post knowing – because he had read the report and was way more informed than everyone of us – that his successor would likely be either one of the homo mafia or one of their puppets. Then he lavished praise on the man they elected.

Please stop defending the man just because he looks so defenceless and is not an evil guy by character: the events now unfolding under our eyes make very clear that Benedict knew the entire scale of the homosexual evil going on around him, and the only things he could oppose to it was “secret punishments” or outright flight.

Benedict in indefensible, and the only good aspect of his situation is that, having validly resigned, he cannot be reinstalled on the papal throne, thus allowing him to make more damage out of sheer weakness and very German gregarious spirit.

Benedict, too, should use the time remaining to him to retire to a life of prayer and penance, and no damn Francis-praising interviews; reflecting on the huge evil his cowardice has inflicted on all of us and on the Church of Christ.

    Pope Benedict should have had the 300 report published and released to the world. He owes to God, the salvation of his own soul, and the Catholic Church in it’s entirety to have this document published now.

  2. And if Benedict is reinstated? What about his cover ups in Germany? He and Francis both need to go and Sarah needs to be elected.

  3. Mundabor, a few weeks before PB XVI ‘retired’ I read that he was in danger of being arrested for ignoring or hiding abuse, the European version of SNAP was pressing the Italian government to act. I read this on a few websites. Then, they reported that he had been interrogated by the head of the Italian police. Not long after that he was retired. Since then he has not left Vatican property. Could this be a type of house arrest or by staying on Vatican property could he be avoiding arrest? I have looked for these reports several times since first reading them but have not been successful. Anyone out there remember this but me?

    • There is always someone asking for the arrest of the Pope. The Pope is a Head of State. It’s not in the cards. By the same token, Francis cannot be subpoenad etc…

  4. The real question is not whether you are correct about Pope Benedict XVI, (I believe he was subject to mutiny; pervasive disobedience and almost total subversion). The real question is whether Archbishop Viganò, speaking *now* in “the fullness of time”; after so much evidence of clerical heresy, irregularity, sin, systemic clerical homosexuality and the Church’s visible, real transformation into a perverted homo-Church … what will the Faithful choose to do?
    Will he have any support in his bold stand for Christ? Or will he be chopped off at the knees by *fearful* Bishops unwilling to expose themselves to trouble and *evil* Bishops intent on “killing” the messenger? Will he get platitudes and a polite clap from a few of the Cardinals, or an urgent call to arms by many? Will the flame he lit fizzle, or ignite? Tick, Tock.
    I think those wolves were very real, that Pope Benedict XVI warned us about. They remain; are stronger than before; but are also more visible to those who may have doubted. Now we will see if the lonely man encircled by wolves on Christ’s behalf has any support in his mortal struggle with the wolves.
    I have my doubts. This mutiny goes deep. Who among us has the stomach to regain control of the “ship”? We’ll see. But I, at any rate, stand with Archbishop Viganò. Surrounded by wolves, I stand with him.

    • The laity can do a lot here to support the decent members of the Clergy. How beautifully Providence works!

    • I agree. The enshrinement of sodomy by the vast majority of Catholics (including bishops of course) in the West will render Viganò’s brave revelations meaningless. Most see nothing intrinsically wrong with sodomy, even with teens. They have bought the lie that it is a variant of human sexuality. They have no understanding of priestly celibacy, nor of chastity. Our culture is that debased.
      The few voices of support for Viganò will be vilified and will have faded by Christmas. Paul VI will be made a saint, females will become deacons and homosexual unions will be blessed. Dark days ahead.

    • Don’t be so negative, Akita. Providence is working as we speak.

  5. Bravo, M! Bravissimo!!
    I can even site an incident from 2009 having nothing to do with pederasty or homosexuality. The president of the German bishops’ conference said on German television that Christ did not did as a propitiation for human sin but “in solidarity with the people.” Right on German TC, a Catholic bishops denied a fundamental tenet of Christianity. Benedict did nothing.
    If he did nothing with that incident, why should he do anything substantial about McCarrick?

  6. Good evening,
    Ann Barnhardt in her Sunday night (8/26/2018) PODCAST suggests the only real alternative is for Jorge to be criminally deposed and then have Benedict, who in her opinion did not validly resign and therefore is still Pope, step up to the plate.
    If Benedict’s “resignation” is not valid then no need to “reelect” him – he’s already there…and the Cardinal argument goes away.
    No more “bifurcated” papacy – what a joke.
    Can you point to a particular reference/resource that would support your conclusion(s) and
    undermine Anne’s?
    Peace and Grace

  7. Sexual abuse of minor is a crime to the society, but a sin to the Church and the society has power to prosecute any citizen who violates the nation law. That means to protect US citizens, little boys PDJT can order DOJ to investigate and brings all those sodomites to justice. Praying that God will let POTUS Trump gets involved to help cleaning the Church.
