Pope Benedict IS THE POPE

Bishop Gracida continues to try to make us understand “How and Why Benedict’s resignation was invalid” and Francis is an anti-pope. Thank you for research and reason!

Canon Law itself declares Pope Francis,AntiPope

Jan10byThe Editor


The clear, precise, and sound reading of the Code of Canon Law leads to the inescapable conclusion that Pope Francis is an “antipope” in every sense of the word, and that the law itself declares it.

As has been demonstrated in the article,“How and Why Pope Benedict’s resignation is invalid”, there is no other authentic reading of Canon 332 §2 other than that the renunciation ofmunusis the necessarysine qua noncondition of a papal resignation.

This canonical argument is supported by 35 reasons, debated in Scholastic form, in the article,“The Validity of Benedict’s Resignation must be questioned, Parts I and II”, why a renunciation ofministerium, in the form had in the papal declarations of Feb. 11, 2013, cannot signify a…

Vatican May Be Deciding Fate of Former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick

From The Boston Pilot by Ed Condon Jan. 8, 2019

Analysis:  The non-trial of Theodore McCarrick

Vatican City, Jan 7, 2019  CNA   “Sources at the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith have confirmed that allegations against McCarrick are being considered through an abbreviated approach called “an administrative penal process.”

That decision gives insight into the strength of evidence against McCarrick, and suggests that resolving sexual abuse allegations against the archbishop is a top priority for Pope Francis and other senior Vatican officials.

Canon Law outlines specific processes for handling allegations of sexual abuse by clerics.  All of these are reserved to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith in Rome.  When the charges involve a bishop, the CDF requires specially delegated authority from the pope to handle the case.

A full canonical trial is a lengthy affair.  Depositions of witnesses and alleged victims are taken by the court at which a prosecutor, called the “promoter of justice” in canon law, and lawyers for the defense are present.

Written argumentation is exchanged through a panel of judges, with precise timelines, manners of proceeding, and legal minutiae that must be observed at each step of the way, n order to ensure that the rights of the accused are protected.

Key among McCarrick’s accusers is James Grein, who gave evidence before specially deputized archdiocesan officials in New York on Dec. 27.

As part of the CDF’s investigation, Grein testified that McCarrick, a family friend, sexually abused him over a period of years, beginning when he was 11 years old.  He also alleged that McCarrick carried out some of the abuse during the sacramet of confession – itself a separate canonical crime that can lead to the penalty of laicization.

The CDF has also reportedly rceived evidence from an additional alleged victim of McCarrick – 13 at the time the alleged abuse began – and from as many as 8 seminarian – victims in the New Jersey dioceses and Metchuen, in whihch McCarrick served as Bishop.

Because of the collection of that evidence, McCarrick now faces multiple canonical chages of sexual misconduct and abuse concerning both minors and adults, including solicitation in the confessional.

Use of the abbreviated administrative process, which is only employed in cases of compelling evidence, indicates that McCarrick is likely to be convicted on at least some of the charges.

According to CDF sources, the investigative phase of the process has now been formally concluded and McCarrick has been given the chance both to speak in his own defense.  His canon lawyer may also submit arguments on his behalf.

The CDF is expected to formally assess the evidence and defense within the next week, and to reach a final determination.

While many Catholics, including some bishops, have expressed frustration at a lack of resolution to the McCarrick case, his process is proceeding at break neck pace, at least by canonical standards.

Nevertheless, the  CDF has been unde pressure from the Pope, together with several senior American cardinals, to resolve the matter before the heads of the world’s bishops conferences gather in Rome next month for a crisis summit on the recent sexual abuse scandals.

Some announcement of a decision is highly likely ahead of that meeting

McCarrick is likely to be laicized if he is found guilty.

The Church has refrained from dismissing clerics who are either too old, infirm, and without other means of support, recognizing a moral obligation by the Church to see to their basic subsistence.

But while he McCarrick is old and in failing health, he is also known to be financially independent..  As one source in Roma told CNA  “The CDF don’t usually laicize someone if it means they’ll be living on the street, but McCarrick has always had money to throw around.”

It also seems likely that as a technical matter, it will be Pope Francis, not the CDF, that declares a verdict and imposes a penalty on the archbishop.”

“Prominent voices like Cardinal Sean O’Malley and Marie Collins, the abuse survivor and former member of the Pontifical Commission for the Protection of Minors, have called for a change in the CDF’s legal definition of “vulnerable adults” who are classed alongside minors by the CDF in sexual abuse cases.

Currently, a vulnerable adult is someone who “habitually lacks the use of reason”  O’Malley and Collins have both called for the definition to be broadened to include other victims, especially when sexual abuse is accompanied by an abuse of authority or power.  Such a redefinition would include McCarrick’s alleged seminarian-victims.

If the Rome meeting next month sets out to narrowly treat the issue of minors, and seems to exclude other victims of coercive sexual abuse, the figure of Theodore McCarrick might still cast a shadow over anything it tries to achieve.”

Mountain Men Do Not Die of Heart Attacks: Investigation into the Death of Pope John Paul I

Excerpts from the book:  ‘In God’s Name’ by David Yallop

Monsignor Giuseppe Bossa, Apostolic Administrator of Venice

“In the eight years since he was in Venice, I saw Cardinal Luciani in bed only once because he was unwell.  That was for Influenza.  For the rest, the Patriarch of Venice was very healthy and he did not suffer from any illness.”

Professor Rama (Medical)  

“Luciano had low blood  pressure which under normal conditions oscillated around 120/80

Monsignor Mario Senigaglia, Secretary to Albino Luciano (1970-1976)

“Immediately before leaving for the conclave, and, in August 1978,  he had a full medical check up at the Stella Maris Clinic.  The results were favorable in all respects.

His working day in the Vatican was no longer than it was here in Venice.  In the Vatican he had many more advisers.  (in regards to stress)

Mountain men do not die of heart attacks.”


Challenge to The Vatican From David Yallop Author

“If the Vatican can prove me wrong on just two simple questions of fact”   (in this well researched book), and if they can prove that my account of the papers he was holding in his hands is incorrect, then I will donate every penny of my royalties from the sales of this book to cancer research.” 

The Vatican account of who found the body was their first lie.

The papers that Luciano was clutching was the “smoking gun”

Nearly twenty years later I am still waiting for the Vatican to respond.”                                   David Yallop


Preface                                                                                                                                                     “This book, the product of three years intensive research, would not exist without the active help and co-operation of many people and many organizations.  Very many of these only agreed to help on the strict understanding that they remained publicly unidentified.”Yallop

I can assure the reader that all the information, all the details, all the facts, have been checked and double checked to the extent multiple sources were available

I am sure that the fact that I recount conversations between men dead before my investigations began will be cause for comment.  How for example could I know what passed between Pope John Paul I and Cardinal Jean Villot on the day they discussed the issue of birth control?

Within the Vatican there is no such thing as a private audience that remains completely private.  Quite simply both men subsequently talked to others of what had transpired

These secondary sources, sometimes with deeply differing personal opinions on the issue discussed by the Pope and his Secretary of State, provided the words attributed.  Therefore while the dialogue within this book is reconstructed, it is not fabricated.”Yallop


I, Mary Anne, highly advise reading this book.  While it gives an excellent investigation into the death of the Smiling Pope, it also covers the intricacies of Vatican Banking.  Much can be learned from that part of the book which would give an understanding of the way things are today.  It covers the P2 Lodge of Masons and their dislike of the way Pope John Paul was running the Vatican.  It is closely connected to the papers found in the pope’s hand.

Blessed Fr Jerzy Popiełuszko: Martyred Freedom Fighter

What a saintly priest! His first miracle was an instantaneous cure of a patient dying of incurable cancer. I needed to read this so much and am so uplifted in my faith by doing so.

Catholicism Pure & Simple

Next year—2019—will mark the 30th anniversary of communism’s collapse in Poland and Eastern Europe. It will also mark 35 years since the murder of Father Jerzy Popiełuszko. I was safe in California when the communist secret police killed my former vicar in Poland in October 1984. In May 1980, Father “Jurek” Popiełuszko was assigned to our parish, St. Stanislaus Kostka, where I was baptized. He was a physically frail servant of God with an indomitable spirit. To understand Father Jurek, we must shed some light on his personal background and the social and political context of his life.

Farm, Seminary, and Priesthood
One of five children, the future priest was born in a farming family in Okopy in the Podlasie region in what is now eastern Poland. The infant was originally baptized Alfons, to commemorate his mother’s brother, Alfons Gniedziejko, an underground Home Army…

German Ecclesiastics Like Cardinal Walter Kasper Want to Destroy the Papacy in Order to Appease the Lutherans and Annex the Lutheran German Church Tax (Kirchensteuer) Revenues

Let us open with a quote from the new MUST-HAVE BOOK: “The Divine Right of the Papacy in Recent Ecumenical Theology”by J. Michael Miller, ARSH 1980, (who is now the Archbishop of Vancouver). Let us quote the opening words of Chapter NINE, “Lutheran-Catholic Dialogue”, emphases mine, with screen cap below:

In ecumenical dialogs the question of papal primacy was long avoided. Theologians preferred to discuss a series of other controversial questions before taking up the papacy, the…
