Bergoglian Complains About “Toxic” Attitudes About Sodomy

Edit: naturally he means himself.

February 7, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) — San Diego Bishop Robert McElroy said recently that there is “repugnant” and “corrosive” bigotry toward individuals identifying as LGBT on the part of “a group of people across all religious views.”
This “particularly antagonistic” regard for LGBT individuals by people in this group generates from the depths of the souls, Bishop McElroy said. It is a reality that must be faced and one that is “incompatible with what we hope to be as a church.”
The bishop was cited and quoted by New York Times columnist Frank Bruni for a recent “The Scariest Catholic in America” op-ed that focused on another Catholic venue rescinding a speaking engagement from controversial Jesuit Father James Martin.

Germans Have Little Faith in the Catholic Church -- Pope's Popularity Declines

Edit: Imagine my shock. You would think that Marx's big push to legitimize mortal sin would make him and his confreres MORE, not less popular.

Germans consider television more trustworthy than the Catholic Church. In a survey, it is only in the rear midfield among 26 institutions. Trust in the pope also decreases.

Statistics | Bonn - 04.01.2018 According to a survey, Germans do not trust the Catholic Church with great confidence. Among 26 "non-political institutions," the Catholic Church in a study by the opinion research institute forsa for the television station RTL and ntv is only ranked 18th At 27 percent, however, it improved compared to the previous year by one percentage point. Here, the perception in West and East Germany deviates strongly from each other. For example, only 13 percent of East Germans give their trust to the Catholic Church; by contrast, 30 percent among the West Germans.

The Protestant church increased by two percentage points to 48 percent, ranking it in 13th place. In West Germany, 50 percent of the respondents trust them, in eastern Germany 34 percent.



Confidence in the pope, on the other hand, declined significantly last year. He is trusted by 54 percent of the respondents, which represents a decrease of 6 percentage points compared to 2016 and means 9th place in the current ranking. Here too, West and East Germany deviate strongly from each other. The pope enjoys, according to the data, 40 percent of the East Germans' trust, but 57 percent of West Germans.

Islam lost the most confidence

The strongest loss of confidence was recorded by Islam. It fell in the "trust ranking" from 25 percent in the previous year to 9 percent. That means rank 24. Behind it lie only managers with 6 per cent and advertising agencies with 5 per cent. Forsa boss Manfred Güllne believes Islamist attacks are responsible this low value for Islam.

37 percent of the respondents trusted the Central Council of Jews, three percentage points less than in 2016. The "trust ranking" is headed by the police, universities, doctors and their own employers. The media in the form of radio, press and television had each suffered 4 percentage point losses. According to the poll, 56 percent of Germans trust in the radio (8th place), the press comes to 40 percent (15th place), the television 28 percent (17th place).

The survey took place between December 15 and 20, with 2,307 people polled. (Well / KNA)

Pope Intimate and Poverty Poser Receives $600,000 a Year to Do Nothing

Pauperist Maradiaga, Pope intimate and coordinator of the C9 Cardinal Advisory, has received 600,000 dollars yearly as a "bonus" without consideration.



"35,000 euros a month for the Cardinal. 
New scandal in the Vatican for Pope Francis. The friend and advisor of Francis, Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga, preached pauperism, but received half a mission a year from a University of Honduras. "
The weekly L'Espresso magazine reported on the extra income of one of Pope Francis' closest confidants, Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga, former chairman of Caritas International, who under the current pontificate, considered himself a particularly intense poverty preacher of a "poor church for the poor."  He additionally even put himself in position as a potential successor to Pope Francis.
The weekly magazine unveiled the "new scandal" yesterday coinciding with the Christmas address of the Pope to the Roman Curia, which again became a verbal attack against the central office of the universal Church.
According to L'Espresso, Cardinal Maradiaga receives $ 41,600 a month from the Catholic University of Tegucigalpa , of which he is the Grand Chancellor. In December, he even received $ 64,200 as a "Christmas present". In 2015 alone, the total amount that Maradiaga received for his "services" as Grand Chancellor amounted to "nearly $ 600,000." The Office of the "Grand Chancellor" is automatically linked to that of the Archbishop and has the purpose of ensuring the solidarity of the University with the Church. The office has primarily representative functions and also control oversight. Work or services are not associated with it. The payments to Cardinal Maradiaga are an "extra" to his ordinary income, which  the cardinal as the highest official has availed to himself to a certain extent. You could also say self service.

The cardinal with the wire to George Soros

Maradiaga had already been accused in the summer of 2016, following DC Leaks revelations, in connection with the Pope's visit to the United States in 2015, to have concluded deal with the left-wing activist and billionaire multi-billionaire George SorosA payment of $ 650,000 from Soros for financing the Pope's visit is attested. Since then, the question has been raised as to which influence Soros and his network were able to exert on the Pope's visit. It was speculated that Pope Francis was silent in return for topics such as the mass murder of unborn children through abortion and "gay marriage", two "holy cows" of the political left.
Maradiaga also proved to be a particularly keen club-swingers against any criticism of the administration of Pope Francis. He was particularly underhanded against the Cardinals who presented Pope Francis in autumn 2016 with the Dubia (doubt) to the controversial post-synodal letter Amoris laetitiaMaradiaga's speech for Italian Switzerland's television was a shameful train wreck, for which the Honduran neither apologized nor did Pope Francis demand such from him. Maradiaga had said:
"First and foremost, I think they did not read Amoris laetitia, because unfortunately that is the case! I know the four and say: you are already retired. How come they say nothing to those who make weapons? Some are in countries that produce and sell weapons for the genocide that takes place in Syria - for example. Why? I do not want to be, let's say, too harsh: only God alone knows the conscience of men and the inner motives, but seen from the outside, this seems to me a new pharisaism. They were wrong, they better do something else.

Jesuit General Kolvenbach's Disappeared Report: "Bergoglio Not Fit to Become Bishop"

(Rome) The book "The Dictator Pope" (Il Papa dittatore) by Marcantonio Colonna, a pseudonym of the unknown author, has been causing much discussion for days, and not only in Rome. It also describes the rise of Jorge Mario Bergoglios. The daily La Verità conducted an interview with the author by e-mail.


The book The Dictator Pope 

Marcantonio Colonna was one of the three victors of the Battle of Lepanto, who stopped the Islamic encroachment against Europe at sea in 1571. Colonna was commander of the papal troops and later viceroy of the Spanish Habsburgs in the Kingdom of Sicily.
"The little book attracts half the world's interest," according to the daily La VeritàMedia around the world have already reported it. After the Italian edition, an English has appeared. Further translations are planned. A German edition is in preparation.
La Verità: Why did you decide to write this book? And why do you use a pseudonym for this?
Marcantonio Colonna: Basically, the media image that Pope Francis has benefited from over the past five years is one of the most extraordinary scam stories of the present day. Everyone who works in the Vatican knows the profound difference between image and reality and one should not be surprised that somebody reveals this truth at some point. 
I wrote my book under the name of Marcantonio Colonna because he was a great military leader of the 16th century Catholic Church. Anyone who reads the book will see that it is in no way an attack on the Church. The intention is to prevent the Church from making another such mistake, that of choosing a little-known cardinal to be the pope [He was certainly well-known by the Sankt Gallen group who had tried to elect him in the Conclave following John Paul II's death], who then turns out to be quite different from what he appeared to be. The pseudonym was necessary because, as the book says, Pope Francis mercilessly avenges himself on those who oppose him. The three assistants of Cardinal Müller, who were dismissed in October 2016 for alleged criticism of the Pope, are an example of this.

Church variant of Juan Peron



Marcantonio II. Colonna

La Verità: In your opinion, why is Bergoglio a "dictator"?
Marcantonio Colonna: The meaning of the word "dictator" is that of a sovereign exercising his personal while disregarding law and order. This is quite different from the legitimate authority that traditionally belongs to the head of the Catholic Church. I could refer again to Cardinal Müller. He tried to defend his three subordinates when they were dismissed. He received the answer from the Pope: "I am the Pope and I owe no explanation for any of my words." This is not the way in which the popes traditionally exercise their authority. In calling Pope Francis a dictator, I also wanted to show the close parallels between his style and that of Juan Peron, the dictator of Argentina in Bergoglio's youth. His influence is crucial to explain the style of Francis. As I say in the book, it is the ecclesiastical implementation of Juan Peron.

The disappeared report of the Jesuit Father General

La Verità: In the book you tell a little known episode from Bergoglios past. It concerns the Jesuit Father Kolvenbach. Who is this? How did you hear about the episode?


Jesuit general Peter Hans Kolvenbach (1983-2000)

Marcantonio Colonna: In 1991, when Father Jorge Bergoglio was appointed as Auxiliary Bishop of Argentina, a report by the Superior General of his Order, Father Kolvenbach, was needed. The response of Father Kolvenbach, based on the opinion of other members of his order, was that Bergoglio was not fit to be appointed bishop. Pater Kolvenbach claimed that Bergoglio's psychological balance was lacking, that he had a deceitful character and that during his time as Provincial, he had divided Argentina. This report was then distributed among the former members of the Congregation for the Bishops and therefore became known to a rather large number of people. Bergoglio hurried to make it disappear when he became pope. The copy, which was in the official archives of the Jesuit order in Rome, has disappeared.
La Verità: How did you collect the material for your book?
Marcantonio Colonna: Various journalists have written of my book that it contains little new. In fact, much of it relies on articles published in the past four years, for example, by Sandro Magister. It was just about putting the material together. Nevertheless, I think that my book, with its second chapter, is an important contribution that describes the past of Jorge Bergoglio in Argentina, where he was known as a cunning politician and manipulator in the Peronist tradition. Again, there is nothing new for an Argentine, but it is about making these facts known to the rest of the world. I was just the instrument who translated it across language barriers. Once again, the revelations about the resistance to reform and the rule of fear that now prevail in the Vatican are familiar to anyone working there, but it was necessary for someone to publicly tell what was already known in secret.

The mafia of Sankt Gallen



Godfried Cardinal Danneels

La Verità: How was Bergoglio Pope?
Marcantonio Colonna: My first chapter describes the action of the Cardinals' group for the 2013 Conclave, which became known as the "Mafia of St. Gallen" to ensure Bergoglio's election. This description comes from a member of the group itself, the Belgian Cardinal Danneels, who was so proud to have planned Bergoglio's choice that he told all his biographers. And let me add that the name "Mafia von Sankt Gallen" also comes from Danneels. He was obviously unaware that he was thus announcing a grave violation of canon law prohibiting any form of conspiracy to influence a conclave. The group of Sankt Gallen met for years, secretly, before the conclave of 2005, where they tried to prevent the election of Cardinal Ratzinger to Pope Benedict XVIThe candidate presented at the time was Bergoglio. When Benedict unexpectedly abdicated in 2013, they seized the opportunity to resume the failed attempt eight years previously.

The strangled reform of the Church

La Verità: What do you think about the reforms of Bergoglio?
Marcantonio Colonna: The third chapter is called "Reforms? What reforms?" It describes in detail how the reforms of powerful curia representatives, with whom Francis had allied, were completely blocked. First and foremost, the reform of the Curia was canceled out by the State Secretariat, that Cardinal Parolin is more powerful than ever. Secondly, the broken promise to take action against the scandal of pedophile priests: there are cases of well-known priests who are protected by senior representatives of the Curia. Thirdly, the complete cessation of the financial reform that was expected when the new Economic Secretariat, headed by Cardinal Pell, was set up. It was fought by a small circle of Cardinals who did not want to give up their control, and they managed to defeat them. The dismissal of the Vatican general auditor, Libero Milone, was another victory for those who oppose the reforms. Why did this happen? Because Pope Francis, who was elected to reform the Church, has come to the conclusion that he can control the Curia much more efficiently by the corrupt figures who depend on him for power. They obey him blindly.
La Verità: Was there any reaction from the Vatican to your polemic?
Marcantonio Colonna: My book did not please the Vatican. There were immediate attempts to find out who wrote it. They thought they'd figured on the author being someone who was in England and harassed him with telephone threats. What they are unaware of is that the book is not a one-on-one opinion but expresses the concerns of many people, in the Vatican and beyond, who want the truth to be known.

Morning Papal Mass Before Many Empty Chairs

Pope Francis at Mass yesterday in Santa Marta where there are more empty spaces
(Rome) Whenever Pope Francis celebrates Holy Mass in Santa Marta, pictures of it are published. So also yesterday, when he once again blamed the Catholic priests for something that does not exist. In the house chapel of the Vatican guest house, since the beginning of his pontificate, the Holy Mass has been celebrated at seven o'clock in the morning.
It is noticeable in the pictures that relatively few to very few believers are present. This observation is more and more frequent. The participation in a Holy Mass celebrated by the Pope is an extraordinary privilege. Catholics would be in queues of thousands if they had the opportunity to participate.
In the spring of 2015 various media, referring to the Vatican, reported that there were "too many requests" to participate in the morning celebrations. Franca Giansoldati wrote on 23 April 2015 in Il Messaggero:
"The Pope's Mass in Santa Marta is overbooked. There are not even enough chairs."
Neither the early morning hours nor the security controls would deter them.
"Of course, the Pope wants to let everyone in. He often goes against the gendarmes and the other employees, who try to contain and order the massive current. But even Pope Francis must bow to the good will, to the rules, because all the many people who write to him every day and ask for a place (also standing room) to listen to his sermon and participate in the liturgical celebration, would not even fit into St. Peter's. The current has grown slowly, continuously, unstoppably. The inquiries come from everywhere, from small, remote villages of Northern Italy as well as from inaccessible areas of the Amazon jungle. In short, it is a planetary phenomenon."
Is it because of the high safety standards? A screened off pope, however, does not really fit the role of the office. This is quite independent of the Pope, who is the ruler, but less so to a pontificate, which openly preaches "openness". Is it possible to manage the "current" in the organizational inability of the competent authorities in the Vatican? Or is it due to the invitation policy of the papal inner circle to leave only selected people close to the pope by means of exclusive access criteria?
We do not know and ask.

Bishop Fellay Has Signed the Filial Correction -- Just Released!

Edit: it's here.

[FSSPX] On July 16, 2017, several clerics and lay scholars addressed a correctio filialis, a filial correction, to Pope Francis. They reveal the seven heresies contained in the Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia.
A website has been created for the occasion: www.correctiofilialis.org; it offers information on the diffusion of the correctio filialis.
This thoroughly documented critique is a sort of sequel to the Dubia on Amoris Laetitia (September 19, 2016) of Cardinals Walter Brandmüller, Raymond L. Burke, Joachim Meisner, and Carlo Caffarra. (The latter two passed away this year, respectively on July 5 and September 6.) They respectfully requested Pope Francis to “clarify” five unorthodox points in Amoris Laetitia.
The Dubia remained unanswered and were later followed by a request for an audiencefrom the four authors (April 25, 2017). Their request was not granted.
On June 29, 2016, 45 theologians submitted to Cardinal Angelo Sodano, dean of the College of Cardinals, another critical studyof 19 points in Amoris Laetitia. This critique also went unanswered.
In the list of the 62 signatories of the correctio filialis are the names of several persons who already signed the critique of the 45 theologians in 2016, but among the new names is that of Bishop Bernard Fellay, Superior General of the Society of St. Pius X, the only bishop who has signed the document so far, although – as the presentation of the correctio filialis explains – the list remains open.

Vatican Has Detained Diplomat Because of the Possession of Child Pornography

(Rome) The Vatican press office yesterday announced that the Holy See had arrested a member of its own diplomatic service on suspicion of possession of child pornography.
On August 21, the US Department of Foreign Affairs informed the Vatican by diplomatic means that the suspicion of infringement of the legal protection clause against child pornography could have been violated. The violation, according to the note, could have been made by a representative of the Washington-accredited Diplomatic Corps of the Vatican.
As is the case with diplomatic practices, the suspected diplomat was immediately withdrawn and is currently awaiting further investigations in the Vatican.
The information from the US was handed over to the Vatican's judicial authorities, which initiated investigations. The Vatican promoter iustitiae, comparable to a public prosecutor, has now turned in an international appeal for assistance to the US.
The Vatican press office has recalled that all investigations are subject to the presumption of innocence.
"The former apostolic nuncio for the Dominican Republic, Monsignor Jozef Wesolowski, was the first prisoner in the Vatican because of the possession of hundreds of child pornography pictures", said Europa PressThe former Vatican diplomat, who denied the allegations, was removed from office by Pope Francis in 2013 and charged. In 2014, he was laicized according to surveys of the Congregation of Doctrine for the Faith. He was not arrested due to his health, but he was placed under house arrest in the Vatican. The trial was discontinued because Wesolowski died in August 2015 at the age of 67.

Archdiocese Sells IHM Sisters Property to Satanist Pop Star

Edit: the IHM Sisters who once occupied a large property in the La Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles, California until they were thrown out by Cardinal Mahony in 2011, are now being thoroughly divested of what was their home. Realizing that their shrinking and now elderly remaining members could not remain in the property any longer, they sought to sell it to a woman who wanted to turn the community house into a boutique hotel. Meanwhile, the Archdiocese under Cardinal Gomez objected to the sale, in favor of selling the property to admitted satanist Katy Perry, while claiming to be representing the best interests of the sisters. But they seem to be the only ones objecting to the sale of the property to the evil pop star.

Despite filing a law suit against to sell the property to the original buyer, the sisters lost their court battle in March of last year to the evil pop star.  We were unable to find any further articles after April of 2017.

This story didn't get a lot of coverage from Catholic media, and we only heard about yesterday reading a comment threat from 2015. Cardinal Gomez seems to be just as evil and unprincipled as his predecessor.


Two nuns have enlisted the help of the Pope’s personal lawyer to fight a court case against Katy Perry’s attempts to buy a former convent, describing the singer as “disgusting” and accusing her of “witchcraft,” according to a report.

The Daily Mail reports that the 32-year-old singer is facing a legal challenge from the Order of the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary over her attempt to buy the $14.5 million property, situated in Los Angeles’ Los Feliz neighborhood, which was formerly lived in by Sisters Rose Catherine Holzman, 86, and Rita Callanan, 78.
“I do not like Katy Perry’s lifestyle,” Callanan told the paper. “I gave a lot of the things from the internet to show the Archdiocese what kind of woman she was. Some of the things she does are disgusting.”

During her first encounter with the singer, Callanan said that Perry was eager to show her a tattoo on her wrist with the name Jesus, and the singer said she planned to buy the property so she could “sit down and drink green tea, and just go to the meditation garden and just meditate.”

"Belgium's Bishops Are With Francis" and Allow the Divorced to Communion (Whoever Want it)

Belgium's Bishops Follow Francis "Seamlessly"
(Brussels) In Belgium the remarried divorced persons may, if the bishops allow it, receive Communion. The media are almost triumphant: "Belgium's bishops are with Francis."
On 24 May, the Belgian bishops published a pastoral letter in Dutch and French, calling upon ambiguous passages in the post-synodal letter Amoris laetitia by Pope Francis. According to Cathobel , "the bishops of Belgium follow the teachings of the pope with their pastoral letter by allowing remarried divorced people to receive Communion when they decide according to their conscience."

No one can say by decree, everyone can go to the communion (therefore, all who want it)

"Monitoring, differentiation and integration. Nothing more. The prelates follow Pope Francis seamlessly because they are aware that every situation has its own particularity," said Cathobel . One can not say by decree that "all remarried divorced people can go to communion." No one could do that. A "path" is necessary and a "distinction" and a "pastoral discernment of conscience."
"The divorced are part of the Church for Francis. Even for the Belgian bishops." Without any reinterpretation, the prelates will have started to heal wounds. "This decision deserves respect," says Cathobel .
"Between laxity and rigorism, Francis chose the ways of personal choice,
According to the letter of the shepherd. A "decision of conscience" was called for, according to the bishops.

From objective criteria to subjective opinion

"Without any reinterpretation" obviously means two things. On the one hand, the Belgian bishops, with their step, follow exactly what Pope Francis reaches for with Amoris Laetitia, namely, that remarried divorced people if they find it right before their conscience, can receive the sacraments. The decision no longer follows objective criteria but the subjective opinion of the individual. On the other hand, it is the "rigorous" bishops who do not adhere to the doctrine of the pope and "reinterpret" Amoris laetitia in order to maintain a "continuity" with the traditional doctrine of the Church. This swipe would then be first applied to Cardinal Gerhard Mueller, Prefect of the Congregation for the Congregation of the Faith, and the Diocesan Bishops, who maintain the sacramental inviolability of marriage -- and make a mockery of the "Bergoglian" bishops.
With the dismissal of André-Joseph Léonard and the appointment of Jozef De Kesel as archbishop of Mechelen-Brussels, the Church in Belgium has once again taken a full steam tour of its lack of orientation. It was Pope Francis who, on the insinuation and incitement of  Cardinal Godfried Danneels (Archbishop of Mechelen-Brussels, 1979-2010), denied him a cardinal dignity, as he did to the metropolitans of Philadelphia and Venice, among others

"Happy Easter" -- An Unusual Telephone Call Between Pope Francis and the Maltese Order

Pilgrimage Site of the Madonna delle Grazie in Alife (Campania)
A phone call from the pope reached Msgr. Sapienza there.
(Rome) Some telephone calla from Pope Francis are puzzling. Telephone contact recordings are certainly a hallmark of this pontificate which date back to the evening of March 13, 2013, when Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio was elected Pope in the Sistine Chapel. On the same evening, the new Catholic Church's chief spoke to various persons who were close to him. A sensation for a pope.
In the past four years, the faithful and the media have become accustomed to the fact that the Pope is always on the phone or mobile phone. This was also the case on Easter Monday. The addressee of the call was unusual, it was Monsignor Leonardo Sapienza, the head of the Papal House. The mission of Monsignor Sapienza corresponds to that of a secretary of the Roman dicasteries. He is the number two in the Pontifical Household, after his Prefect, Archbishop Georg Gänswein.

Msgr. Sapienza

Pope Benedict XVI Had appointed Sapienza to the Apostolic Protonotary two days before his unexpected resignation was announced. The award of this pontifical title was suspended by his successor, Pope Francis, shortly afterwards indefinitely. In any case, the reigning pope has a special appreciation for the head of the papal household, as yesterday's telephone call shows.
The telephone call was made by the local bishop of Alife-Caiazzo, Monsignor Valentino Di Cerbo. On Easter Monday, Sapienza, together with a group of Maltese Knights, had taken a trip to Campania. Mariano-Hugo Prince of Windisch-Graetz, Head of the Younger Line of the Austrian Princes, who had possessions in the area, had given the invitation to this effect. Prince Windisch-Graetz is Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Sovereign Order of Malta in Slovakia and Slovenia as well as Knights of the Order of the Golden Fleece.
When the knights visited the diocesan prayer site of the Madonna delle Grazie in Alife, Monsignor Sapienza received the telephone call from Pope Francis. That was a few minutes before he turned to the Regina Coelito the faithful on St. Peter's Square. Monsignor Sapienza told the Pope where he was, describing the chapel and landscape in the hinterland of Caserta. Monsignor Sapienza passed the mobile phone to the local bishop, whom the Pope also briefly greeted. The Pope wished Monsignor Sapienza to have a happy Easter, and he extended the same wishes to all the knights, the knights and the church rector. A sympathetic gesture, which was also recorded and published accordingly.
He was astonished that the Pope was calling a staff member on Easter Monday, who had just left the Vatican for a one-day trip, and whom he just had in his vicinity -- just to describe the landscape. In Rome it is speculated that the call would have had more to do with the Maltese knights who accompanied Monsignor Sapienza, and to whom papal closeness was to be demonstrated.
In the Sovereign of Malta, there was a violent dispute at the beginning of December 2016, which led to the resignation of the Grandmaster Fra Matthew Festing at the end of January by a direct papal command . Festing is also a Knight of the Order of the Golden Fleece. The Order has been under the supervision of a papal commissioner. A new Grand Master will be elected at the end of April. In the context of the conflict, the choice of a directional decision is the same. The Italian knights have a not insignificant role. Behind the scenes, it's about candidates and voices.

Libero Poll: 84% Miss Pope Benedict


The daily newspaper "Libero" has been conducting an online vote since yesterday with clear results. In the picture Pope Benedict XVI. as a cardinal.

(Rome) The Italian daily newspaper Libero has been conducting an online vote since yesterday. The question is: "Are you missing Ratzinger as head of the church?"

The current voting result

Only one-time voting is possible. The vote is counted after a few seconds and the current result is published as a percentage. It is not known how many readers have been involved in the vote. The reconciliation result is continually updated and is unambiguous. On April 13th, at 8:57 am, it looked as follows:

84 per cent of Libero readers have replied: Yes, I am missing Ratzinger as a church leader. Only 16 percent have so far denied the question.

The well-known Italian journalist Antonio Socci, who takes a very critical attitude towards the reigning Pope, writes for the daily newspaper Libero.

The comments on the online vote reflect the mood among the voters. Some examples:

A Franco Ranuzzini wrote:

"Ratzinger spoke of God and frequently quoted the Bible, but it is only understood that Bergoglio was a Pope because he is dressed in white, otherwise he would be considered a politician."

A Francesco Cenatiempo added in response to Ranuzzini's comment:

"No, Bergoglio is the Imam of the Vatican."

A Riccardo Cavalli wrote:

"The Pope is Benedict XVI.  In his recent sermons, Bergoglio crosses the line. He said that Jesus was the devil! And made himself a serpent! Is there any doubt about who Bergoglio is and who is Pope? Read the visions of Emmerich and Neumann. Let us remain faithful to the everlasting doctrine and the constant teaching of the Church!

Giorgio Collarin wrote:

"High on the emeritus pope. Happy Birthday!"

The representativeness of the survey can cast doubt on the overall question as to whether a Catholic Church head should be measured in surveys. In any case, the Libero Initiative makes visible a part of the mood among the people, which is a counterpoint to the likely attitude of the leading media toward Pope Francis.

Is it also the case that 84 per cent miss Benedict XVI as Pope because Francis "makes himself invisible"  on the Triduum, to  the Church, and celebrates the Mass of the Last Supper not in the Lateran basilica with his diocese and the world church, but to their exclusion and in the public From?

Pope Francis and Cardinal Caffara Embrace -- Are the Dubia off the Table? -- Things Are Not So Simple

(Rome) Pope Francis visited on Sunday the city of Carpi in Emilia. The diocese in the Po Valley was affected by a major earthquake in 2012. Media, and some Catholic circles were able to read a lot in the coffee grounds. Carlo Cardinal Caffara also took part in the pope's visit as emeritus Metropolitan of the adjoining Church Province of Bologna. Caffarra is one of the four notable Cardinals, who gave the Pope Dubia (doubts) on the controversial Apostolic Letter Amoris laetitia.

The five questions were not answered by the Pope until today and lie as a dark shadow over the pontificate.

Since December 2015 Matteo Maria Zuppi has been archbishop of Bologna. He belongs to the community of Sant'Egidio. As the Pope visited the episcopal church yesterday, just a few kilometers from Bologna, it was obvious that both Archbishop Zuppi and Cardinal Caffarra attended the meeting. "Both represent very different positions within the Church," said the Corriere della Sera  on April 1.

The fact that Cardinal Caffarra was present and greeted by the Pope caused some speculation. At lunch in the Carpi priestly eminary, the Cardinal, on account of his rank, sat even on the Pope's right, while on the left a 95-year-old priest, the oldest member of the adjoining clergy, was allowed to sit.

But whoever thinks, as many have done, that a salutation is enough, and all is well, are mistaken. The world is not as simple as it appears to some. Some examples:

Medjugorje and the Rosary "from the Pope"

The Vatican is prepared not to recognize the supernatural nature of the Medjugorje phenomenon. This has for a long time been fixed, but one has been looking for the right way for years to make it as easy as possible for the faithful.

In September 2015 Marija Pavlovic, a "seeress" of Medjugorje, by the way a very lovable person, was referred to media reports that Rome would not recognize the "apparitions" and "messages" of Medjugorje, for she had only received a rosary from Pope Francis in the previous week. A priest had brought it to her, who had participated in a meeting with the pope and received the Rosary from the Pope. He had asked the pope whether he could bring to Marija Pavlovic. The Pope had agreed.

Things can be so simple or at least appear so. The so very important question of the supernatural nature of the apparitions is "clarified" because the pope agrees that a rosary should be brought to a seeress.

The greeting for Bergoglio critic Archbishop Aguer

Greetings from Pope Francis to Archbishop Hector Aguer

A recent example took place only a month ago. Pope Francis,l sent Archbishop Hector Aguer of La Plata a congratulatory note on the 25th anniversary of his ordination. Such attentions are self-evident practices in the Church. They are independent of the person's public appearance. Archbishop Aguer was the opponent of Jorge Mario Bergoglio in the Argentine episcopate. Both were, at the same time, archbishops of Buenos Aires, but represented different positions, comparable to the relationship between Archbishop Zuppi and Cardinal Caffarra in Bologna. Both were metropolitans: Aguer of La Plata, Bergoglio of Buenos Aires and thus Primates of Argentina. Between the two archbishops, the sparks flew again and again in the Episcopal Conference. With the papal election of Francis, it was finally decided which of them would prevail. Francis then made a tabula rasa among his former Argentine opponents. Archbishop Aguer is still in office, but has become rather lonely in the Episcopal Conference.

A congratulation from the pope and all is good? An office of the Vatican prepares such congratulations, which are then signed by the Pope. It's a courtesy which ultimately tells nothing about the relationship between the Pope and the Archbishop.

The same applies to the embrace of Pope Francis and Cardinal Caffarra. This greeting is customary among cardinals and bishops. A polite greeting does not mean that "everything is good" and the Dubia are also off the table.

The world is not that simple.

However, the example shows how annoying the Dubia is and how great the burden is because Pope Francis does not want to answer the questions asked.
