Leading Newspaper at Rome shows Benedict XVI as Pope in news report

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

The house of lies and frauds upon which Bergoglio stakes his claim to the papacy is crumbling fast. The leading Roman Daily Newspaper, which is left wing and generally pro-Bergoglian on all topics, has chosen to challenge the regime on a crucial point.

And they have done it in a particularly Italian way.

They ran a story about concern for the health of the Pope Benedict XVI.

Not a story about the health of Pope Francis.

They also mean to speak about Pope Benedict XVI, because instead of using a photograph of Pope Benedict as he looks today, they dug up an old photo from before Feb. 28, 2013, when he was wearning the simar, the white papal caperone which is worn above the white papal tunic.

The simar is the sign of one who holds jurisdication. The photo means that Pope Benedict is the Supreme Pontiff, the Roman Pontiff, the Vicar of Christ and the Successor of Saint Peter.

And just in case you did not get the implication of the photo, they chose a photo which is unusual: one in which the wind of the Holy Spirit catches the simar and inflates it to maximum size:

  1. Definitely see how Franca depicts Pope Benedict in this pope “the Italian way’, but I also see why she would, as she has been very carefully critical of Bergoglio (see her twitter feed). All the Italian way….

    1. Dear Em,

      The Article is really not that critical, in an explicit sort of way. But to our knowledge, it is professional practice that photographs are not chosen by the authors of the articles, but are an editorial decision of the Newspaper’s management, or at lest with their consent. So the statement is not coming solely from Franca, but from the top eschelons of the Newspaper. And that is why it is significant.
