Vatican Announces Photo of Pope Benedict XVI.


(Rome) Yesterday evening Vatican spokesman Greg Burke published a photo of Benedict XVI on Twitter.
He did not mention a reason for the publication. Burke wrote simply:
"The emeritus pope, today at 5 pm."

H/t Katholisches...

      I can't even look at a picture of him anymore with getting a pain in my gut.

      Pope Benedict XVI interprets Vatican Council II, EENS, Nicene Creed, Catechisms and other magisterial documents with an irrational premise to produce a non traditional conclusion

  2. Good observation: also using the name Benedict XVI, and residing in the Enclosure of Peter. And having tacked the silly emeritus label on himself seems to be fooling fewer and fewer Catholics as time goes by.

  3. +J.M.J.+ This is a talk given by Fr. Michael Rodríguez on October 6, 2017, in observance of the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary (Oct. 7th) and the 100th Anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun (Oct. 13th). The talk covers three main themes: A Terrible Crisis in the Papacy, the Letter of Filial Correction, and the 100th Anniversary of the Fatima Apparitions.

    1. That was a superb video. I wish everyone could see it. We were very impressed by his direct eloquence. He nailed it.

  4. I think this was announced by the Vatican to quash the "fake news" being spread by some media that Benedict XVI is not well. He looks remarkable well to me, and still has all his mental faculties.
    I often wish that he never resigned, and do not believe he did so of his own free will. I believe that he was forced out after the "Vaticanleaks" affair, when dozens of compromising documents were released to the press by a malicious employee of the Vatican...not to discredit Benedict, but to show the depth of the corruption of the Vatican. Those who it involved I think were deeply afraid that Benedict XVI would now do something about it....so they forced him out. He claimed to be resigning on his own initiative because he was/is a gentleman (gentle man....) which is a nice quality, but not always. Sometimes it is taken as weakness. Which is why the vultures in the Vatican acted to force him out.
    With the manipulated and campaigned for election of Bergoglio (who was runner-up in 2005), they got their man. And the Church has been sinking into the filth he and his cohorts represent ever since.
    I wish Benedict XVI would speak up against him and what is happening in a forceful way, enough to give Francis a stroke or something like that! But he won't.
    I was proud to be a Catholic under Benedict XVI, a pope who spoke and thought and dressed and acted like a real Pope....in many ways like a pre-Vatican II pope. I got a glimpse of what a Pope before Vatican II looked like.
    But I am not proud to be a Catholic under Francis. I look to the SSPX, and not the Vatican or Francis, to see the true Catholic Church.

    1. I was reading an account of the conclave in 2005. It described Bergoglio taking himself out of the running--in tears. He WANTED the papacy.

      Couple that with the obvious and well-known fact that he is having a ball as pope. Not a word, ever, about the suffering that almost all popes have spoken of frequently.

      Especially notable is the almost perfect silence from Bergoglio as a million Christians have been slaughtered by Obama's creation, ISIS.

    2. As a matter of fact, Fr., Bergoglio has said many times before that 'Islam' is a religion of peace, and that we the faithful are wrong not to embrace people of 'Islam'. Islam is in no way a religion of peace, never has been. Not only has he not said a word about the slaughter of Christians by ISIS, which is born of ISLAM, but he has almost demanded that we embrace those who would just as soon behead us or burn us alive as look at us. ISIS, which is born of ISLAM is Satan himself, as declared by the late Fr. Amorth, may he RIP.

    3. In the conclave of 2005, there was a deal struck. The Bergoglio group agreed to support Ratzinger and allow him to lead for a certain period of time. He would agree to resign if certain benchmarks were not met. That is most likely the true scenario. He was not forced out.---In 2008, he surprisingly removed Archbishop Burke from St. Louis. I have emails from the Chancery to prove it. Benedict was not the total conservative that he is built to be. It was stated that he was a supporter of the philosophy of Teilhard de Chardin.

    4. JBQ....where do you get this info? Not that I doubt it for a second, just wondering of it's source.

      And as to Ratzinger being a 'supporter' of de Chardin; oooooo, it's much more than that. I read this the other night and wept. I didn't think anything could shake me anymore. It's all of a pattern, and the pieces are all meshing. It's bad.

      Yet another red pill to swallow.......

      I think we're all getting to the same dark corridor, though at different pacings. The veil is getting very, very thin. This is perhaps the best writing Steve Skojac has ever done.

    1. True but don't worry about the past or the business suit he wore to the council, have pity on him and love and pray for him because he IS our pope. We don't know all the shenanigans behind the scenes, the mind games they played with him and who knows what drugs they have him on. You think it's normal for old Georg to be flashing this hand sign at a feeble old man until he flashes it himself?

    2. The traditional British priests,Frs Hunwicke and Blake as well as American Canon Lawyer Ed Peters have all strongly denounced this nonsense about conspiracy theories about Benedict's resignation and the legitimacy of Francis' election as Pope.
      Get over it boys and girls, you're on a wank.

      Delete
    3. Oh Canon lawyer Ed Peters, well he's Prof Stefano Violi is he? He's not pope because a heretic can't be Catholic much less pope. Bergoglio said "don't proselytize" that goes directly against the directive of our Lord to spread the gospel to the whole world. Heretic, not pope and you need to get over that one Benny.

      "The traditional British priests,Frs Hunwicke and Blake as well as American Canon Lawyer Ed Peters have all strongly denounced this nonsense about conspiracy theories about Benedict's resignation and the legitimacy of Francis' election as Pope."


      Perhaps you can explain exactly how Professor of Canon Law Stefano Violi erred when he said that Benedict attempted to split the papacy, an act that has no canonical or scriptural basis.

      Hunwicke and Peters can denounce all they like. Have they actually explained the canonical or scriptural basis by which a Pope possesses the authority to alter the nature of his own office?

      Lol, you just answered the question with your own paragraph numbnut. Is there a canonical or scriptural basis for a Diarchy? Well, unfortunately Pope Benedict thought there was.

  7. Pope Benedict looks like he is losing weight. He looks looks like he is dazed and a bit confused. I am just wondering what are they putting in Benedict's food ?

  8. Maybe they force the Pope to listen to a continuously looped recording of Little Jimmy Martin's reading aloud the full text of Amoris Laetitia.

    He looks like John Gill in "Patterns of Force."

      well played.

      I would have a caveat for the likes of Marx, and Kaspar, and the ilk....they are rarely seen without a smarmy, unctuous, sinister ear-to-ear grin on their goblin faces.
