Pope Benedict XVI speaks about the Secret of Fatima

Father Lombardi: Thank you, and now come to Fatima, in some way the culmination, even spiritually, of this visit. Your Holiness, what meaning do the Fatima apparitions have for us today? In June 2000, when you presented the text of the third secret in the Vatican Press Office, a number of us and our former colleagues were present. You were asked if the message could be extended, beyond the attack on John Paul II, to other sufferings on the part of the Popes. Is it possible, to your mind, to include in that vision the sufferings of the Church today for the sins involving the sexual abuse of minors?

Holy Father: Before all else, I want to say how happy I am to be going to Fatima, to pray before Our Lady of Fatima. For us, Fatima is a sign of the presence of faith, of the fact that it is precisely from the little ones that faith gains new strength, one which is not limited to the little ones but has a message for the entire world and touches history here and now, and sheds light on this history. In 2000, in my presentation, I said that an apparition – a supernatural impulse which does not come purely from a person’s imagination but really from the Virgin Mary, from the supernatural – that such an impulse enters into a subject and is expressed according to the capacities of that subject. The subject is determined by his or her historical, personal, temperamental conditions, and so translates the great supernatural impulse into his or her own capabilities for seeing, imagining, expressing; yet these expressions, shaped by the subject, conceal a content which is greater, which goes deeper, and only in the course of history can we see the full depth, which was – let us say – “clothed” in this vision that was accessible to specific individuals. Consequently, I would say that, here too, beyond this great vision of the suffering of the Pope, which we can in the first place refer to Pope John Paul II, an indication is given of realities involving the future of the Church, which are gradually taking shape and becoming evident. So it is true that, in addition to moment indicated in the vision, there is mention of, there is seen, the need for a passion of the Church, which naturally is reflected in the person of the Pope, yet the Pope stands for the Church and thus it is sufferings of the Church that are announced. The Lord told us that the Church would constantly be suffering, in different ways, until the end of the world. The important thing is that the message, the response of Fatima, in substance is not directed to particular devotions, but precisely to the fundamental response, that is, to ongoing conversion, penance, prayer, and the three theological virtues: faith, hope and charity. Thus we see here the true, fundamental response which the Church must give – which we, every one of us, must give in this situation. As for the new things which we can find in this message today, there is also the fact that attacks on the Pope and the Church come not only from without, but the sufferings of the Church come precisely from within the Church, from the sin existing within the Church. This too is something that we have always known, but today we are seeing it in a really terrifying way: that the greatest persecution of the Church comes not from her enemies without, but arises from sin within the Church, and that the Church thus has a deep need to relearn penance, to accept purification, to learn forgiveness on the one hand, but also the need for justice. Forgiveness does not replace justice. In a word, we need to relearn precisely this essential: conversion, prayer, penance and the theological virtues. This is our response, we are realists in expecting that evil always attacks, attacks from within and without, yet that the forces of good are also ever present and that, in the end, the Lord is more powerful than evil and Our Lady is for us the visible, motherly guarantee of God’s goodness, which is always the last word in history.

The extensive reach in the USA of the St. Gallen Mafia

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

This is a follow up to my report on the Vatican ATM Machines and how they were shut down and restarted as soon as Benedict had accepted to abdicate. The bankers really wanted Benedict out, as soon as possible, and the ones to make the ATM decision appear to have been both graduates of the St. Gallen University.

The other key historical event surrounding February 11, 2013, now needs to be discussed. It is the ousting of Ettore Gotti Tedeschi, a German nobleman with an excellent reputation for honesty and integrity, from his role in overseeing the financial books of the Vatican. As soon as he started to clean up accounts, the commission of Cardinals overseeing his work voted him out. They did not even wait for the consent of Pope Benedict XVI, who heard about it on TV.

Pope Benedict XVI was not to be intimidated. The closing of the ATM machines at the beginning of January 2013 was not going to force him to surrender. So he instructed his Secretary of State, Cardinal Bertone to call back to the Vatican Mr. Ettore Gotti Tedeschi, and promise him that he would be reinstated, at the Pope’s personal request.

This was a consummate chess move. Now, Ettore Gotti Tedeschi could never be fired again. He would continue his works and discover whatever hidden or misused monies where there. There was no way to remove him.

The Cardinals were already arriving or in Rome for the next Consistory, which would take place in a few days, on Febuary 11, 2013, to confirm the canonizations of three groups of Saints and Martyrs.

The enemies of Pope Benedict XVI now had no other option but to force his resignation. Demanding his abdication for as of yet unknown reasons, or insisting with agents in the Pontifical Household to convince Benedict by means of psychological manipulation or drugs, to renounce.

But who was behind the vilification of Ettore Gotti Tedeschi, which preceded his being fired by the Commission which over saw his work?

According to Lou Verrecchio, in an article entitled, Are the Knights of Columbus worthy of Traditional Catholic Men?, published on August 18, 2016, he identifies that man:

And yet, it must be said that the time has come for these good men to ponder whether continued association with the Knights is warranted given that the organization is led by a man whose own public witness to the Catholic faith is so deficient that he can’t even manage to present the Church’s teaching on the sanctity of life accurately!

And why is that, one wonders? Is it because Carl Anderson sincerely doesn’t know the “Church’s position” on abortion, or is it because his interests lie somewhere other than proclaiming authentic Catholic teaching?

As “Supreme Knight,” Anderson has been afforded no small amount of wealth, international celebrity, and the status of ecclesial power broker. (NOTE: Anderson was instrumental in smearing the reputation of the former head of the Vatican Bank, Ettore Gotti Tedeschi, and bringing about his ouster.) He has also been afforded a unique opportunity to defend the true Faith in the face of objective evil.

As of this moment, it appears that he has fully embraced all but the latter.

It must be said that there are numerous reports that the Knights of Columbus have transferred tens of millions of dollars to the Vatican in the last 20 years. But that anyone be involved in smearing a financial oversight officer, is beyond belief. Was Gotti Tedeschi about to find out where the Knights’ money was really going?

A close collaborator of Carl Anderson is Alejandro Bermudez, the Executive Director of Catholic News Agency. According to Mr. Verrecchio, when the scandal that two leading US Politicians who were pro abort, were members of the Knights, broke out, he was working for Catholic News Agency, and unwittingly uncovered the real power network. He writes, in the same article, I just cited by him:

At the time, I was writing for Catholic News Agency and I wished to devote a column to the matter, and so I sent an email to Patrick Korten for comment.

What happened next was very telling…

Within moments, I received an email from Korten’s boss, Andrew Walther, V.P. of Communications and Media for the Knights, asking if the topic of my column was “assigned by CNA and Alejandro Bermudez,” CNA’s Director.

It was not; I chose the topic myself, but before I could even respond to Walther’s question, I received an email from my editor at CNA informing me that Mr. Bermudez had made it plain to her that CNA has no interest in publishing a column on this matter.

Unbeknownst to me at the time, my query to Patrick Korten had lit a fuse; one that would quickly explode into an impressive display of the power that the Knights of Columbus national office wields under the direction of their “Supreme” leader.

So, there you have it. A network of power, which protects one another. And it all leads back to the events surrounding Pope Benedict XVI’s ousting from power.

The Knights of Columbus send the money to the Vatican, and spend it in ways they do not what Pope Benedict XVI to know. Catholic News Agency protects the Knights who are pro-aborts and upholds the Supreme Knights’ decisions, as a favor or out of fear.

Catholic News Agency was acquired by EWTN in 2010, according to this report. It was in that year that the St. Gallen Mafia began their maneuvers and attacks on Pope Benedict XV.

All these groups, today, insist that Bergoglio is the Pope, and that Benedict resigned validly. But the Latin of Pope Benedict’s Declaratio, of Feb. 11, 2013, opens with the statement, but to communicate a thing of great importance for the life of the Church: your decision.  Your decision about what? To get rid of me?

They think they triumphed over Benedict.

But Benedict defeated them with 1 word: ministerium.

For by renouncing ministerium and not munus, he gave appearance of a valid papal resignation, but did not resign. He forced them to show their hand and he deprived them of all moral, theological, canonical and spiritual legitimacy.

And if you but open your eyes, you will see it. But if you love the lies of the St. Gallen Mafia, you will never admit it.

The St. Gallen connection to those snarky Vatican ATMs

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

One of the intriguing historical events associated with the events of Pope Benedict XVI’s apparent renunciation, was the decision by Deutch Bank to shut down the ATMs of Vatican City prior to Pope Benedict’s removal from power. The New York Times reported on this on January 4, 2013. It is an incontrovertible historical event.

But, this one event has been the source of a lot of speculation about possible force or coercion placed on the Holy Father to renounce. And the reason for the importance of this, is that Canon 188 declares all resignations of office, invalid, when obtained through coercion.

An Old Story gets some powerful help

I have recently come upon important information which leads me to say, that this theory has some very strong circumstantial basis, and one which leads directly back to the St. Gallen Mafia, who even during the very ceremony in which Benedict XVI bade farewell to the Cardinals,  on Feb. 27, 2013, seemed to be already in control of the Vatican administration (cf. during the ceremony the camera pans to Bergoglio & Tagle).

Here is the evidence which supports that line of investigation.

The Raiffeisen Banks

In 1899, Father Johann Traber, a Catholic priest in Bichelsee, Switzerland, founds the first Raiffeisen Bank in Switzerland. This bank was inspired by the teachings of Hermann Schulze-Delitzsch and Friedrich Wilhelm Raiffeisen, who argued that financial institutions should serve the people. A Raiffeisen Bank is a rural credit union. They are found not only in Switzerland, but in Austria, Romania, Luxembourg and Germany.

In 1902, the 10 banks of this kind, in Switzerland, founded the Swiss Raiffeisen union.

In 1912, the unofficial headquarters of this Union is established in St. Gallen, Switzerland, 41 KM to the east of Bichelsee. This would make St. Gallen a center of banking, and an important one during the Second World War, because rural credit unions generally have poor security and are easily used for money laundering. In Fact, in 2019, a Raiffeisen Bank in Austria was implicated in a Russian money laundering scheme.

St. Gallen: A Rampolla Powerbase

But St. Gallen, Switzlerland, was also Diocese controlled for nearly 70 years by Rampolla allies and members. Here is that history

On September 26, 1938, Father Joseph Miele becomes the new Bishop St. Gallen. He is co-consecrated by Bishop Laurenz Matthias Vincenz, the Bishop of Chur, Switzerland, who according to his episcopal lineage, is a direct descendant of Cardinal Rampolla del Tindaro, from whom the lineage of the St. Gallen Mafia members also descends.  Father Miele was consecrated principally by Eugenio Maria Giovanni Cardinal Pacelli, who would shortly become Pope Pius XII and sign the Concordat with Nazi Germany, which guaranteed the liberty of the Catholic Church in return for the submission and dissolution of the Catholic Centre Party into the National Socialist Party of Germany. This union with the Nazi party gave Hitler the votes to be declared Dictator for Life by the enabling act.

In 1957, Bishop Miele is succeeded by Msgr. Joseph Hasler, who was principally consecrated by a disciple of Bl. Alfredo Ildefonso Cardinal Schuster, who himself was co-consecrated by a Rampolla Bishop and who was notable in arranging the escape of Nazi war criminals from allied territories at the end of World War II, as the Dossier on Father Albert Hartl, records.

In 1976, on March 25, Bishop Miele is succeeded by Otmar Mäder, who like his three predecessors is a priest of St. Gallen, Switzerland, and who is consecrated by Bishop Miele. This tradition continued on March 29, 1995, with the consecration of Ivo Fürer, former secretary of the European Bishop’s Conference and intimate promoter and member of the St. Gallen Mafia, as FromRome.Info has reported previously.

Home of the St. Gallen Mafia

We know from that report on Bishop Fürer, that Cardinal Kasper and others formed the St. Gallen Group as early as 1991, and from the Biography of Cardinal Daneels, that this group met at St. Gallen up until 2006, and called themselves, The St. Gallen Mafia.

But why St. Gallen, Switzerland?

St. Gallen was a notorious hotbed of Nazi sympathizers. It is sufficient to cite the case of  their chief of police, Paul Grueninger, who for the “crime” of assisting hundreds of Jews escape from Nazi Germany, was demoted and fired from his position. He received an apology posthumously a stunning 55 years later! (source: here)

But St. Gallen is also a center of Corporate networking on account of the 18,000 alumni of a very influential Business school, located there.

St. Gallen University Campus (bottom), is a short walk from St. Gallen Monastery (Church above), where the Mafia met.

In fact, St. Gallen Switzerland is the home not only of the Raiffesen Bank HQ, but of a Business School of international profile: the University of St. Gallen, which not only has ties to the Raiffesent Banks, trough the CEO since 2015 of the Reifesen Banks, Patrik Gisel, graduated from the St. Gallen University in 1993, but more significantly, through the Chairman of the Board of DeutchBank since May 31, 2012, Paul Achleitner and its CEO from 2002-2012, Josef Ackermann, are graduates, and 1977 respectively of the University of St. Gallen.

And this is where it gets interesting. Because the ATM machines which were shut down in January 2013 at the Vatican, were operated by DeutchBank.

Perhaps it is just a coincidence that the two most senior and powerful officers of DeutchBank who undoubtedly were the ones who made the decision to shut down the ATMs at the Vatican, were graduates of a University in the same town where the St. Gallen Mafia met for nearly 15 years?

Oh, and on Feb. 12, 2013, DeutchBank lifed its block on the Vatican ATMs. The very day after Benedict XVI appeared to have abdicated. How nice of them!

That is the evidence. I leave it to you to draw the conclusions.

The unexpected profundity of the First Fatima Prayer

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

If you know anything about the approved apparitions of Our Lady and Saint Michael the Archangel at Fatima, Portugal, in the years 1916-1917, then you probably have heard of this prayer, which Saint Michael — the Angel of Peace — taught the three children, on his first Mission to meet them.

O My God, I believe in Thee, I adore Thee, I hope in Thee and I love Thee!  And I ask pardon for those who do not believe in Thee, adore Thee, hope in Thee and love Thee!

However, that is NOT, what the Angel of Peace said. The original Portuguese, in fact, reads thus:

Meu Deus! Eu creio, adoro, espero e amo-Vos. Peço-Vos perdão para os que não crêem, não adoram, não esperam e Vos não amam.

Which in English is this:

My God! I believe, adore, await and love Thee. I ask Thee pardon for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not await and do not love Thee.


Like many Catholics, I have always thought the Angel of Peace was instructing in the 3 theological virtues, Faith, Hope, and Charity, along with the virtue of religion. Under that assumption, the English translation which is commonly used has been published and propagated. Thus, there are the acts of believing, hoping, loving and adoring.

But what the Angel of Peace says differs on 2 points.

First, he does not say I believe in You, but rather I believe You.  The difference here regards the sense of the verb, to believe, in both Portuguese and English.  To say I believe in You is an act of faith, which regards dogma or the acceptance of the existence and trust one has in a person.  But to say, I believe you, is the simple act of putting complete trust in the other.  The first is the kind of faith we have on Earth, where we cannot see God face to face.  The second is the kind of trust all in Heaven have in God, Whom they do see face to face and fully.

The first act is remote, and intellectual. It regards the supernatural virtue of faith. The second act is immediate and volitional, that is, regards the will and the supernatural virtue of hope.

Second, he does not say, I hope in You, but rather, I await you.

At first this is a bit difficult for us English speakers to understand, since it is an archaic concept.  When a person awaits another, he is waiting for the arrival or visit of the other.

But what does this mean in regard to God?

This has 3 senses.  First, that we are waiting for the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, at the end of Time, when He shall come to judge all and everyone.

Second, this regards how we must prepare ourselves for a holy death, and to meet Jesus Christ, Who in the moment after death will judge us personally and for all our deeds.

Third, this regards how we should wait for God’s visitations in prayer, by praying more to receive and listen to God, than rambling on speaking to him about what we want.

As regards Angels, it is quite clear that the second sense does not apply to them, but that the first and last are the essence of their expectation of God’s Justice and desire to serve.


This first prayer taught at Fatima by the Angel of Peace teaches us profound truths about how our Catholic Faith must be real, living, and engage us totally in a relationship which is directed directly at God, the Most Holy Trinity. As His faithful servants and adorers, we should fill our life with love and trust in Him.  Faith is presupposed, but our life of Faith goes way  beyond believing only in doctrines and dogmas. It requires that we make these the foundation of our whole relationship with God.

Let us pray this prayer frequently during the day, and learn from it to make our way back to God and to God. Let us sanctify ourselves in the true adoration of God Who has done everything for us, and who is, as the Angel of Peace declared, “attentive to our prayers and supplications.”

A List of Catholic Clergy working as Nazi Spies, 1932-1945

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

Here is a history which you were never taught about in Catholic Schools of any kind. The extensive collaboration of Catholic Clergy with the Nazi regime and the Waffen SS before and during World War II. And not only in Germany, throughout Europe, and in the Vatican!

The information came to light when the U.S. Army captured Albert Hartl, a former Catholic priest from Bavaria, who became a close collaborator with Himmler after leaving the Catholic priesthood and joining the Gestapo and working closely with the SS in Russia!

You can see his photo above, taken at Nuremburg. Here is the Wikipedia caption on that photo:

Albert Hartl (1904-1982) at the Nuremberg Trials. Hartl was RSHA-Fuhrer and SS-Member. This photograph of Hartl (probably as a witness) was taken by US Army photographers on behalf of the Office of the U.S. Chief of Counsel for the Prosecution of Axis Criminality (OUSCCPAC, May 1945 – Oct. 1946) or its successor organization, the Office of Chief of Counsel for War Crimes (OCCWC, Oct. 1946 – June 1949).

Here is what Wikipedia has to say about the life of Hartl (note SD = Gestapo):

Hartl studied for the priesthood from 1916 to 1929 at a seminary in Freising and the University of Munich. He was ordained in 1929 by the Archbishop of Munich Cardinal Michael von Faulhaber and began teaching, including at the Freising seminary.[2]

Career with SD

While teaching at Friesing, Hartl became involved with a group of priests who had joined the Nazi Party, and in 1933 he signed up as a paid SD informant. He reported Father Josef Rossberger, apparently his best friend, for anti-Nazi activity, which led to a trial, Rossberger’s imprisonment, and Hartl being taken into protective custody by Richard Heydrich, head of the SD. Following this, Hartl left the priesthood and joined the SD himself.[2] In 1935, according to Gitta Sereny, he became the SD’s Chief of Church Information.[3] In March 1941, when the Reich Security Head Office was reorganized, he was placed in charge of a Gestapo office known as IV B (“Sects”). Department IV B4, led by Adolf Eichmann, was the office responsible for the deportation of Jews outside Poland.[4]

I reprint here pages from a OSS interrogation report on Albert Hartl, an ex-Catholic priest who joined the Waffen SS and received information from a network of spies throughout Europe during the Nazi era. The OSS was the Military Intelligence Service of the U.S. Military, which was charged in rounding up Nazi Spies, and potential war criminals during and after World War II.  Albert Hartl, at the end of the war, fled to Yugoslavia, but was arrested on a trip back to Austria. The information he gave up was crucial to mapping out the Nazi spy network within the Catholic Church from 1932-1945.

The report was declassified as per the Nazi War Crimes Act of 2007, and released by the CIA. You can download the entire report, which is 65 pages long, in PDF format here:


St. Gallen Mafia connection

I publish this as an Appendix to my reports on the affiliations of Catholic Clergy with the Nazi Party and movement, which I covered in the following articles, previously published here at FromRome.Info:

  1. The Nazi Forefathers of the St. Gallen Mafia
  2. The Nazi Refugees and the origins of the St. Gallen Mafia

I do so, because Albert Hartl, was ordained a priest by Cardinal Michael von Faulhaber, Archbishop of Munich from 1917 to 1952, was a member of the House of Rampolla di Tindaro, to which the St. Gallen Mafia belongs according to its episcopal lineage.

I think this OSS document detailing the activities of Albert Hartl make it quite clear that Catholics cannot ignore the question of the interference of intelligence agencies and foreign spies at the Vatican, nor exclude the possibility that a political party among the clergy might control the Church so as to serve the most vile and godless interests.

What all need to really pay attention to, is how this Nazi agent, a Rampolla circle member, PROPOSED TO THE OSS — the future CIA — how to infiltrate the Catholic Church using controlled well-known personalities in Catholic education and media (p. 26, below).

Now for the pages which concern us. I reprint them as they are contained in the report from pages, 16-26, with a few exceptions.

La Traduzione Autentica della Declaratio di Papa Benedetto XVI

di Frà Alexis Bugnolo e Emiliano Palopoli

Questa traduzione italiana è stata fata per manifestare il senso autentico della Dichiarazione secondo le regole di Latino e non secondo la narrativa sostenuta dal Vaticano per giustificare il Conclave del 2013. Si notano tante anomalie che mostrano chiaramente l’invalidità del atto e danno segni che la Rinuncia è stata forzata da Cardinali già in scisma con Papa Benedetto XVI.

Non soltanto vi ho convocato a questo Concistoro per le tre canonizzazioni, ma anche per comunicare per conto della vita della Chiesa, la vostra decisione di grande importanza. Avendo esplorato la mia coscienza più volte al cospetto di Dio, sono arrivato a una cognizione certa che le mie forze deterioratesi per l’età non sono più atte ad amministrare il Munus Petrino in modo equo.

Sono bene conscio che questo Munus secondo la sua essenza spirituale, dovrebbe essere esercitato non solo agendo e scrivendo, ma non meno soffrendo e pregando. Ma tuttavia, nel mondo della nostra stagione, soggetto a rapidi mutamenti, e perturbato da questioni di grande peso per conto della vita di Fede, pure un certo vigore del corpo e dell’anima è necessario per governare la Barca di S. Pietro e per annunciare il Vangelo, il quale vigore in me in questi mesi finali diminuisce in modo tale, che per bene amministrare il Ministero affidatomi devo riconoscere la mia incapacità. A ragione di ciò, ben conscio del peso di questo atto in piena libertà dichiaro che rinuncio al Ministero del vescovo di Roma, Successore di San Pietro, affidatomi mediante le mani dei Cardinali il 19 Aprile 2005, affinché sia vacante la Sede di San Pietro a partire dal 28 Febbraio alle ore 20,00 ora locale, e che sarà convocato un Conclave, da parte di coloro che sono competenti, per eleggere un nuovo Sommo Pontefice.

Carissimi Fratelli, con tutto il mio cuore, vi ringrazio per il vostro amore e lavoro con cui avete portato con me il peso del mio Ministero e vi chiedo perdono per tutti le mie mancanze. Affidiamo completamente la S. Chiesa di Dio alla cura del Sommo Pastore, Nostro Signore Gesù Cristo e imploriamo la sua Madre, Maria, che assista con la sua materna bontà, i Padri Cardinali nell’elezione di un nuovo Sommo Pontefice.

Per quanto mi attiene, vorrei servire con tutto il mio cuore in futuro per una vita dedicata all’orazione per la Santa Madre Chiesa.

28 Febbraio 2013: Congedo dai Cardinali, Bergoglio sta per ridere alle 2:37?

Il Commentario di Frà Bugnolo sul video

Alle 2:37 si vede il Cardinale Jorge Mario Bergoglio accanto il Cardinale Zen. Zen sembra indignato come fosse stava guardano un teatro dell’assurdità. Bergoglio sembra da ridere alle parole di Sodano, che dice che i Cardinale sempre hanno voluto di accompagnare il Santo Padre nel suo cammino!

E Papa Benedetto? Sembra essere drogato, con la più brutta faccia mai ha avuto durante il suo Pontificato.

Ma alle 8:40 Bergoglio da il segno di mano massonico.

La Televisione Vaticana durante il servizio fa forze di mostrare Cardinale Bergoglio, Bertone e Tagle. Coincidenze?

Decide tu!


This video shows the last address of Pope Benedict XVI to the College of Cardinals, which took place on Feb. 28, 2013, in the Sala Clementina, at the Vatican. The Sala Clementina is at the center of the City State and is adjacent to the Monastery of Mater Ecclesiae, where Pope Benedict XVI now resides.

At 2:37 one can see Cardona Bergoglio next to Cardinal Zen. Zen seems indignant as if watching a theatre of the absurd. Bergoglio seem as if he is going to laugh, at the words of Cardinal Sodano, that the Cardinals have always wanted to accompany the Holy Father in his path!

And Pope Benedict XVI? He seems drugged, and has one of his most ugly visages during his pontificate.

But at 8:40 in this video, Bergoglio gives the masonic hand sign.

TV Vatican has notably made efforts during this transmission to show you Cardinals Bergoglio, Bertone and Tagle.  A coincidence?

I will let you decide!

The Death of Pope John Paul I

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

Remember, that Pope John Paul I had been the Patriarch of Venice, and he was elected primarly because the Church Bank which served the priests and religious of his region of Italy had been brought to bankrupcy by the Vatican Bank. He promised as Pope to clean up the Vatican Bank, and if he went ahead he would have surely discovered who had accounts in that bank. If those accounts belonged to the CIA or its operations, his elimination would become a political necessity. So let us examine what happened to Pope John Paul I, widely seen as the liberal successor to Paul VI.

First let us review the official Vatican line of what happened and why. Please listen to the entire Rome Reports, which can always be counted on to give you the approved narrative on any topic.

Who is John Magee mentioned in this short video? the papal a secretary who met with Pope John Paul I when, it is said, he felt a strong chest pain? His biography sheds some light on this. He was befriended by Pope Paul VI, who leading Italian historians say was a flagarant sodomite. And once a bishop, Magee was accused of not taking proper legal action to about priests in his diocese who raped boys. Magee also seems to have been close to the IRA, in the person of Bobby Sands.

Why may this been important? Because the IRA seems to have been one of the stay-behind organizations run and supported by the CIA, which in popular literature is called operation Gladio, though that was the code name only for the operations in Italy.

Thus, there is strong motive to believe that John Magee was a CIA operative. And if so, the heart-attack of Pope John Paul I may have not been an accident. Indeed, as Corbett reports, the death of John Paul I was orchestrated by a CIA asset, at the direction of Dulles’ deep state intelligence network. Dulles’ nephew was made a Cardinal by Pope John Paul II, whose election was made possible by the death of John Paul I, and who himself went one to collaborate with the CIA to wash funds to the Solidarity movement in Poland, to bring down the communist government.

As far as we are concerned about current events in the Vatican, involving the St. Gallen Mafia, I have previously observed that John Paul II promoted all the key members of that group to the dignity of the Cardinalate, from the leader Cardinal Daneels to Cardinal Bergoglio. This may explain why Bergoglio was so willing to canonize John Paul II, and may also explain why the entire political establishment of the West and Trad inc. continues to refuse any investigation into how Bergoglio came to power.

Please note, that I am not saying that the CIA has been controlling the Vatican for decades, but I think the question needs to be kept on the table.
