Is Pope Benedict a prisoner of the Vatican?

By Br. Alexis Bugnolo

One of the most popular reports here at FromRome.Info, was the article I wrote last summer, entitle, The Imprisonment of Pope Benedict XVI. I followed that report up with another, entitled, Not only is Pope Benedict a prisoner, but his guards have been carefully selected.

However, due to the recent revelations by Sandro Magister, which I reported this morning, a very cogent question has been posed to me, by a faithful reader, “Does this mean that Pope Benedict XVI is neither drugged nor a prisoner?”

This question merits to be answered. And I think all true Vaticanista should give an answer. I will try to give one, by assembling the evidence — what Christ Ferrara calls the verboten “data set” , which can neither be gathered, nor studied, and from which no conclusions can be drawn if they disagree with the declared, acceptable narrative of who knows who? Unlike Attorney Ferrara, I believe what the Church has always taught about God and the creation of man, that He endowed us with an intellect and senses so that we might gather information, study it and draw conclusions from it, no matter who the truth might offend, and especially in the case of victims of abuse or wrongful detention. A thing which justice would demand of me, even if I were not an advocate of innocent victims, which I am certainly and ardently.

And so….

My Respondeo, or answer

I say, it does not seem that Pope Benedict XVI is presently being drugged, but there are still weighty reasons to conclude that he is a prisoner

I do agree with Frank Walker, editor of Canon212.com, that in the Bavarian State TV documentary: what was shown of Pope Benedict gave the impression that he was being drugged. But the report by Magister, if true, would mean that when he made those calls and had those conversations with Cardinal Sarah he was not drugged. Two different circumstances and thus it is possible that there is no contradiction, because drugs wear off, and if Benedict detected he was being drugged he may have started to pretend to take them.

But, nevertheless, you can be imprisoned several ways, if you are not being drugged.

There are 5 Ways of being a prisoner

  1. By being deceived, so as to remain in a place where one would not remain if he knew the truth.
  2. By psychological persuasion, so as to remain in a confined place because one fears what is outside it on the basis of the testimony of others, who have bad will but do not lie, only exaggerate so as to stir your passions and emotions to such a degree that you accept their counsel to remain where they want you to remain.
  3. By physical force and restraint.
  4. By a physical barrier or obstacle outside of which one cannot go, because it is locked or guarded.
  5. A non visible barrier, beyond which one cannot go without permission.

We know that Benedict is not allowed outside the Vatican without the verbal permission of Bergoglio. That is the last kind. It has been mentioned in several reports, and even in the Bavarian State TV documentary, Benedict laments that he cannot return to his beloved homeland, though he wants to.

Gänswein seems to have been deceiving him for some time, that is the first kind. Archbishop Viganò refers to that in his testimony, which FromRome.Info published in English, here.

The wound to his head, which seems inexplicable for a fall, is third kind, perhaps. It seems that he fell on his head but injured nothing else. — This gives one the impression that he was punched into submission to obtain something.

The actual fencing and Swiss Guard around the Mater Ecclesiae Monastery is the fourth kind. No one can see the Pope without permission of Parolin, as has been widely reported.

And as for the second kind that is probably why he read the Declaratio on February 11, 2013. Indeed, I think it is not unreasonable, considering all the control and the evidence of pressure against Pope Benedict XVI during the years prior to 2013, to consider whether he was intentionally deprived of sufficient nutriment or given substances which caused a rapid decline in his health in the fall and winter of 2012-2013.  Also, was he given medical advice from individuals who were told to play on his fears of losing his health or of his imminent death. This has to be considered, because he is still alive 7 years later, so why, if the statements attributed to him in the Declaratio, about not having the health to go on exercising the ministry, are his own, then did he think then — what obviously, from medical evidence now, is shown to be false — that he did not have the physical abilities to go on? — Such a ruse would have been the perfect deception.

So I think the reasons for saying that Pope Benedict is a prisoner are very probative, and to say he is the prisoner in the Vatican foretold by Our Lady of Good Success is not a metaphor nor an exaggeration. Those who insist on denying it simply want the deception to continue.

If Cardinal Parolin wants to deny this, let me grant me a visit to Pope Benedict XVI, wherein I can interview him for 30 minutes, asking him any question I like, while doctors of my choice examine the Holy Father for signs of abuse and improper medication.

Bishop Emeritus of Corpus Christi condemns Bergoglio for Vatican Garden Rituals

By Most. Rev. Rene Henry Gracida

With regard to the participation of Francis in the travesty in the Vatican Gardens you can quote me:

“The participation by Francis the Merciful in the pagan rites held in the Vatican Garden is further evidence of his lack of concern for the canonical penalties he is incurring by his repeated participation in heretical and even occult religious ceremonies forbidden to all Catholics, especially one who sits (invalidly ?) on the Throne of Peter. But then he does not seem to have let the excommunication incurred by him under the law of Universi Dominici Gregis bother him and so the penalties incurred by him with increasing regularity these days become easier to dismiss. A day of reckoning will come for him as it will for each of us.”

Blessings,

My letter to a Catholic Bishop requesting a Catholic ReAction to The Vatican Ritual

Your Excellency,

I write you because I know you in the past have shown yourself to be Catholic and to speak the truth, which few do these days.

I also write you because you have indicated that you know what transpired in the Vatican Gardens on Friday, October 4, 2019, when many Catholic Bishops and Clergy and religious attended a Pachamama ritual of adoration.

Something about myself: I hold a B. A. in Cultural Anthropology from the University of Florida (Class of 1986), where I studied the cultures of the native peoples of the Americas intensely. I graduated with honors and was nominated to Phi Beta Kappa. I am familiar with the rituals of the pagans of Latin America from academic study. I have read the Theologia Moralis of Saint Alphonsus dei Liguori in Latin. I am the translator of St Bonaventure’s Scholastic Treatise on the One and Triune God, published by The Franciscan Archive in 2014.

In regard to what happened, I have never seen such an outcry on social media about Bergoglio’s scandals like this one. The Laity are right, this was a pagan ceremony.

Bergoglio invited, participated, approved and attended. He was not just a witness.

  1. There was employed an idol of Pachamama, the Andean Earth Mother Goddess.
  2. The Idol received the veneration of latria, when all those in the circle bowed down to it.
  3. Bergoglio showed respect for the ceremony by inclining his head on occasion.

When one recalls that during the Decian persecution Bishops were considered apostates, with loss of all office and right to communion, for merely procuring a document which said they had sacrificed to Mars, even though they had not, this goes way beyond that.

A lot of laity, myself included, think that the Faith needs to be protected by the Bishops by a formal act.

I am only a brother. But if I were a Bishop, I would think like this:

I am a successor to the Apostles, whom Our Lord rebuked when He said, “When I return, will I find Faith on earth?”

By “faith”, Our Lord always mean, faith in Himself, the true God.

As a Bishop it is my duty to prevent public scandal which arises from the sins of the faithful. This duty is more incumbent upon me, when the sin is by a fellow Bishop. Because if the Bishops remain silent when another publicly sins, the faithful and general public conclude that no Bishop has the Faith, and that the Catholic Church is merely a farce.

To avert such a scandal and to put things in true light, I therefore must make a public statement.

Canon 1364 already declares excommunication latae sententiae. Therefore, I do not need jurisdiction or office to publicly declare that this man, Bergoglio, has incurred excommunication for formal and material participation in the ritual of adoration of a false God, on sacred soil, participated in by priests and religious consecrated to Christ, into which ceremony there was mixed in, by the perpetrator, Bergoglio, the Our Father.

The Public Scandal is notorious. The actions are undeniable. The sin and crime are committed by the person not the office he holds. Therefore action can be taken by anyone who has grave moral responsibility, whether he holds jurisdiction of office or has a grave duty as a successor of the Apostles.

Apostasy by means of a pagan ritual of this kind is not a canonical crime which requires a trial or court to declare. Because apostasy of this kid is principally in the external act, consent to which is presumed. Unlike the canonical crime of heresy, which exists formally not only out of public expression but manifestation of pertinacity of the mind, the pertinacity must be investigated because the state of the mind, which is hidden, must be made manifest. Therefore in a public act of false worship, no investigation need be made. The Divine Faith requires that we do not attend such ceremonies and as soon as we detect that we are present at one, we must get up and leave. Moreover, we cannot invite priestesses or priests of pagan religions to our homes or properties to perform an act of false worship of an idol. Nor can we receive, as Bergoglio did, the idol as a gift after the pagan ritual. Therefore, the consent to the act is indisputable. This is a clear case of a canonical crime running contrary to the entire obligations of the Faith (Thou shalt not have strange gods before Me), against Hope (There is no other Name by which men are to be saved) and against Charity (Thou shalt love Me with all thy heart, and mind and soul).

Therefore, Bergoglio has incurred the excommunication in the canonical sense..

Therefore, I as a successor to the Apostles have the right and duty to publicly declare it.

Having read the book by Saint Alphonsus dei Liguori, Dignity and Duties of the Priest, and knowing that the failure to speak out for Bishops and priests is a mortal sin and the chief reason for their damnation, considering my state of life in the Church as a Bishop, I must act if I do not wish to be damned and share in giving scandal about this horror.

Therefore, I will declare that Bergoglio has incurred latae sententiae excommunication for his formal and material participation and cooperation in an act of false latria rendered to the idol of Pachamama in the Vatican Gardens.

 

These would be my thoughts, if I were a bishop.

I humbly petition, in virtue of Canon 212, that you think similarly and take action to stem the grave scandal and put to end once and for all the pretense of this man to be called a member of the Catholic Church.

Sincerely in Saint Francis,
