Rumors about Benedict XVI

Vatican, May 24, 2016

Given the current situation of turmoil in the Vatican, it is not unusual that all kinds of rumors are circulating about Benedict XVI.

What is happening with the elderly pontiff at this moment? On May 16 a Tweet was divulged through a false Twitter account attributed to Cardinal Pietro Parolin, claiming that he had just died. The news was promptly denied and the false account deleted. It is not the first time that this has happened, for the same news had already been spread on January 29, through a false account of Cardinal Bertone, while on March 31 the news was repeated through another false account accredited to Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, a week after Lombardi had explained the existence of a new tomb in the Vatican grottos: “It is the tomb of the next deceased Pope.”


The empty tomb waiting in the Vatican grottos

From our contacts, we have been receiving the strangest rumors …which we dare not publish yet, for at first glance they appear to be fiction…fiction that will perhaps be surpassed by reality.

In any event, the age of the Pope emeritus and recent photos really tend to raise speculation. But there are even stranger facts. Why bring up the topic of the apparitions of Fatima now? Wasn’t this a closed case? We are surprised by this declaration from the Vatican:

Communiqué on articles regarding the “Third Secret of Fatima”

Several articles have appeared recently, including declarations attributed to Professor Ingo Dollinger according to which Cardinal Ratzinger, after the publication of the Third Secret of Fatima (which took place in June 2000), had confided to him that the publication was not complete.

In this regard, Pope emeritus Benedict XVI declares “never to have spoken with Professor Dollinger about Fatima”, clearly affirming that the remarks attributed to Professor Dollinger on the matter “are pure inventions, absolutely untrue”, and he confirms decisively that “the publication of the Third Secret of Fatima is complete”.

What kind of authority does this Professor Dollinger have to deserve such a refutation? Why does the communiqué speak of declarations attributed to him in the first phrase, but then afterward points out that Benedict XVI had never spoken with him about the topic, to once again speak of attributed phrases? So, were the declarations real with a false content, or did they never existed in the first place? Doesn’t it give the impression of communiqué hastily written, for some unknown reason?

But the most peculiar aspect of the case, is that this is the first time Benedict XVI makes an official declaration through the Vatican Press Office, ever since his renunciation — never before had he broken his silence through an official means. And it was done in a very strange way, through a communiqué in which only some of his supposed words are put in quotation marks. If the topic of Fatima is so important to the Vatican…wouldn’t a video of the declarations from Benedict XVI himself have been more appropriate? Doesn’t this have a certain air of excusatio non petita? Will we soon have another surprise regarding Benedict XVI, who has not been seen in public for some time?

While we ponder how to respond to these strange questions, we recall that this pope is one of the most active within Denzinger-Bergoglio. Enter here and see for yourself→

    The Vatican is  LYING about the Third Secret. The part that was publish reveals the martyrdom of the true pope. The part which remains concealed reveals the here…tical antipope of the apostate counterfeit church. Both of these things have been foretold in other Marian apparitions and Catholic prophecies. Long before it bacame a taboo topic, Cardinal Eugenio Pacelli revealed the gist of the Secret in 1931:
    《 I am worried by the Blessed Virgin’s messages to Lucy of Fatima. This persistence of Mary about the dangers which menace the Church is a divine warning against the suicide of altering the Faith, in Her liturgy, Her theology and Her soul…. I hear all around me innovators who wish to dismantle the Sacred Chapel, destroy the universal flame of the Church, reject her ornaments and make her feel remorse for her historical past.
    A day will come when the civilized world will deny its God, when the Church will doubt as Peter doubted. She will be tempted to believe that man has become God. In our churches, Christians will search in vain for the red lamp where God awaits them. Like Mary Magdalene, weeping before the empty tomb, they will ask, “Where have they taken Him?》
    The “dangers which menace the Church”; is a phrase that is remarkably similar to Cardinal Ratzinger’s comment on the Secret: “the dangers to the faith and to the life of the Christian”.
    “[T]he suicide of altering the faith in [1] her liturgy”, (i.e. making radically ecumenical Protestant changes in the Mass); 2) altering “her theology and her soul” (i.e. the heretical novelties of Vatican II, such as Ecumenism, Religious Liberty); and 3) the great apostasy in the Church which will begin “at the top” (Cardinal Ciappi), “at the summit” (Cardinal Ottaviani); spearheaded by a “pope who will be completely under the power of the devil” who will lead the stampede into apostasy (Cardinal Bea through Malachy Martin). Malachy personally confirmed to me in 1997 that the “pope” who will lead the apostasy in the Church will be a HERETIC and an ANTIPOPE.
    The heretic antipope of the apostate counterfeit church was also foretold by St. Francis of Assisi, Bl. Anna Katherine Emmerich, and Sr. Jeanne le Royer. Can anyone guess his name?

  2. We live in times of extreme disorientation.
    That in itself must be a warning that we all need to heed.

    Pope Benedict’s resignation has always troubled me.
    The resignation and the blatant indifference by the faithful to the resignation, spoke volumes. The way in which Benedict left office should have elicited a much greater reaction, but no. The sheep stood there unblinking while the hireling ushered in the wolf to mind the flock.

    God help us.

  3. I don’t know what is the position on Fatima of the priests who write for this website – i.e. whether or not the Consecration to Russia has been performed (it hasn’t, not as Our Lady requested), and whether or not the complete Third Secret has been revealed (it hasn’t), but as 1Peter5 suggests, Benedict had nothing to do with this anonymous “communique.” It was just another attempt to squelch the truth, which had somehow managed to briefly escape from its dark Conciliar dungeon once again….

    • Curious. BXVI did not say a word about Amoris Laetita, nor on any other subject. But he is unable to keep silent about something of such lesser import. This is so phony.

  4. The whole story of the Dollinger affair is out at 1P5. They obviously do not want BXVI to comment on this, so they made up an official communication and released it in his name.

    • But how would he react if he read something published in his name that did not come from him? Obviously they are pretty certain that he will not say a word.

  5. We need to pray a lot for our dear pope Benedict. He is such a holy man. may God protect him from the wolves in sheep clothing that have taken control of the Vatican.

  6. I don’t know if I am the only one, but what i am reading between the lines in this post is that something terrible has happened to Pope Benedict. Am i the only one who understands this?

    • You are not the only one. The article does allude to something ominous. Granted, he wasn’t “in public” per se, but there was a photo released of Benedict XVI, which was taken around his birthday this year that recently made the rounds. Or, at least it looked like Benedict. Perhaps it was an imposter? I will say this, he went from looking relatively healthy to looking positively ill in a matter of months starting in 2011/2012 (or so it seemed to me). I believe Der Spiegel did an investigation after the “abdication” and found out from reliable sources that he was threatened to be poisoned if he did not renounce. I wouldn’t be surprised if the dramatic change in appearance was due to some sort of poisoning. I look forward to the follow up article.

      • With all the rumors about his death circulating, BXVI could simply make a public appearance to set the facts right. That is, if the rumors aren’t true.

  7. Reblogged this on The Deus Ex Machina Blog and commented:

    A lot has been happening on the Fatima front lately. I am reblogging a post which appeared on the “most excellant” Denzinger-Bergoglio website.

    Once again dear readers, if you do not check this blog everyday, please change that. Furthermore, please follow the link at the bottom of the page. Read it and consider it a rolling indictment of the current occupant of the See of Peter.

    And please pray that the future Council of Econe will come sooner than later and finally expunge this neo-Modernist rubbish from the Bride of Christ.

  8. For Benedict XVI to be in the news these days, is certainly no coincidence. With Francis tripping on his words so often….

    • Its surprising that they still let Benedict XVI alive. They must have warned him of John Paul the First tea if he speaks too much.
