Assasination Attempt on John Paul II at Fatima in 1982

On May 12, 1982, Father Juan María Fernández y Krohn, a priest of the Society of St. Pius X, attacked Pope John Paul II with a bayonet during the pope’s visit to Fatima.  

There is an interesting post by Father Cekada who knew the assassin and even belonged to the same clique of "hard-liners" in the Society.  Father Krohn was wound up pretty tight, like a lot of Sedevecantists, but anyhow.

Krohn accused Archbishop Lefebvre of being too soft during the trial.

The question now is, with Pope Francis in Portugal, does Krohn still harbour these intense ideas about religion, and if so, will he be in Portugal this weekend to see Francis? Krohn was banned from Portugal after serving three years of a six year sentence and moved to Belgium where he practices law.

I certainly hope not! And let us not forget there are now two bishops in white. Let us hope someone is keeping an eye on both bishops in white.

Krohn practices law now. Hopefully he is staying on the right side of the law now.

The Leftist Communists/Media/Academia etc hate all who claim the title Catholic.
Why must we constantly insult "sedevacantists" at every turn.
The World is slowly succumbing to complete breakdown on many levels.The former structure,lifestyle,and support of the West is sinking under its own weight.
Bashing any type of Catholic persuasion at this point in time only helps the people who wish to see us disappear.
Catholics need to unite instead of insulting each other.

He was banned from why so much fear he will again go to Portugal to make a second attempt? During this papal visit, I would think the security would be at a height that it would be almost impossible.

Because it's a large, slow moving target that's often in the way?

Who's afraid? But if thousands of Africans and Arabs can get through Spains border, it won't be hard for a defrocked Sede to get get through, would it?

He also attempted to approach Juan Carlos in 2,000. And one thing I know about people like this is that they never change. What would be surprising is if he ever managed to become proficient enough in a weapon to actually kill anyone.

Oh I think it's safe to say they keep a very CLOSE eye on the one "bishop" in White. I think in fact his excellency Msgr Georg is very careful not to let ANYONE approach him if you know what I mean.

There MUST be a valid, legitimate Pope on the throne of Peter to order and make in union with all the bishops of the world the Collegial Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. C.f.
