Old Liberal Midwife to Francis Pontificate Cardinal Angelo Sodano Deceased

Angelo Cardinal Sodano with Pope Francis, to whom the former chief diplomat of the Vatican had opened the door to the pontificate.

(Rome) Last Saturday the death of Angelo Cardinal Sodano was announced. The former Cardinal Secretary of State of Pope John Paul II died in Rome on Friday, May 27 at the age of 94. He made a particularly controversial statement about the Third Secret of Fatima. Above all, he was the door opener to the pontificate of Jorge Mario Cardinal Bergoglio.

From farmer's son to chief diplomat

The Vatican diplomat from Piedmont was the son of a farmer and a Christian Democrat member of parliament. He was ordained a priest for his native diocese of Asti in 1950 and then sent to Rome. There he earned a doctorate in theology and then a doctorate in canon law from the Pontifical Lateran UniversityIn parallel, he graduated from the Pontifical Diplomatic Academy and entered the diplomatic service of the Holy See.

In 1977 Paul VI appointed him titular archbishop and apostolic nuncio. In 1988, John Paul II appointed him Vatican Foreign Minister at the Roman Curia, and in 1991 appointed him Cardinal Secretary of State.

Benedict XVI, who was the same age, removed him from this influential position when the German Pope pushed back the influence of the Vatican diplomats on Church leadership. From 2005 to 2019, Sodano served as Cardinal Dean, the highest-ranking representative of the College of Cardinals. As such, he played an important role after the surprising resignation of Benedict XVI.  and during the Sedevacante and the preparation of the conclave at which Pope Francis was elected.

On February 11, 2013, on that historic day when Benedict XVI. announced his resignation, Sodano answered him as cardinal dean in the assembled consistory that this announcement came "like a bolt from the blue". This did not seem credible to many observers. However, the image of lightning became a reality in a different way that same day, when actual lightning struck St. Peter's Dome a few hours after the announcement. A unique and shockingly symbolic phenomenon that, contrary to claims at the time, has not taken place before or since.

It was then-Cardinal Sodano who, as Cardinal Dean, convoked and led the General Congregations before the conclave, although he himself, being over 80, could not take part in the conclave.

Is the Third Secret of Fatima Really Past?

As Cardinal Secretary of State, Sodano helped publish the so-called Third Secret of Fatima. Shortly before the announcement, he read a statement on May 13, 2000, at the end of the Mass celebrated by John Paul II in Fatima. It contains the controversial sentence:

"(...) the events to which the third part of the Mystery of Fatima refers now seem to belong to the past".

Cardinal Secretary of State Sodano with Condoleezza Rice

After the former Apostolic Nuncio in the USA, Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, had commented on this, Wolfram Schrems wrote in May 2020:

“Finally, Viganò names the policy of concealment and lies of Cardinal Angelo Sodano, then Cardinal Secretary of State (1991-2006), and Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, Sodano’s successor in this office (2006-2013). He accuses them of having persuaded the people of God that the words of the Virgin Mary had nothing to do with the crisis in the Church and with 'the collusion of modernists and Freemasonry behind the scenes of Vatican II'. (As is well known, the Vatican stated in the publication mentioned that the vision of the Third Secret referred to the assassination attempt on John Paul II on May 13, 1981, was thus fulfilled and lay in the past, further questions are superfluous: Please go on, here there is nothing to see.)” 

Relentless opposition to Benedict XVI.

Sodano couldn't get over his disempowerment by Benedict XVIThe German Pope was never forgiven for appointing Cardinal Bertone, a non-diplomat, as Cardinal Secretary of State. Sodano became his bitter opponentThe circle of Vatican diplomats close to him did not belong to the secret circle of Sankt Gallen, but they made life difficult for the Pope from Marktl am Inn and sought revenge.

In the 2013 conclave, the progressive Fronde around Team Bergoglio managed to form an alliance with the Sodano group, expanded to include Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York and those Italians wearing the purple, most notably Cardinal Scola, who wanted to prevent the Archbishop of Milan, and Benedict XVI's desired successor. This formed a heterogeneous majority that elected Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio as Pope. As the Corriere della Sera reported two days after the conclave, the newly elected Pope Francis addressed the cardinals in the Sistine Chapel and acknowledged his election with the words:

"May God forgive you."

Flows of money for looking the other way?

It was Archbishop Viganò who, in connection with the Vatican's McCarrick Report, asked why the former Cardinal Secretary of State Sodano was not heard. The report was intended to clarify the serious allegations made by the former Apostolic Nuncio in the USA, but in fact, it clarified nothing and covered up even more. Monsignor Viganò asked what Cardinal Sodano knew about McCarrick and why he still didn't prevent his rise.

In this context, revelations by WikiLeaks of Julian Assange already pointed in a certain direction. It is about opaque cash flows in the tens of millions. It is well known that money is power. This was evident in the case of the unspeakable founder of the Order of the Legionnaires of Christ, Marcial Maciel Degollado, and also in the no less unspeakable case of Cardinal Theodore McCarrick. Both appear to have secured themselves by lavishly donating money to influential figures in the Vatican, thereby avoiding investigations and sanctions. 

According to the British historian Henry Sire, who published the explosive book The Dictator Pope under the pseudonym Marcantonio Colonna and was expelled from the Order of Malta for it, Maciel provided the then Cardinal Secretary of State, Sodano, with hefty sums of money. McCarrick's cash flows have never been investigated. The McCarrick Report prevented that, too.

The Corona Narrative

Cardinal Sodano's health had deteriorated in recent days. The Corona narrative should not be missing either, as the Italian press agency ANSA claimed a connection with a “recent Covid 19 infection”. In fact, the cardinal had routinely been tested positive by a PCR test in the course of examinations, which, as is well known, means nothing. 

In fact, ANSA immediately weakened their suggested connection by stating: "The disease joined other diseases from which the famous cardinal had been suffering for some time." The pseudo-pandemic is primarily a product of the mainstream media, to which they remain true to against all evidence. The cardinal was “vaccinated” three times with the experimental spike preparation and belonged to the silent crowd of churchmen who found not a word of criticism of the arbitrary and disproportionate harshness of Pope Francis’ Corona measures.

On May 27, Angelo Cardinal Sodano died at the age of 95 in the Roman Columbus Clinic, which belonged to the Foundation of the University Hospital.

Requiescat in pace.

Belgian Church Working Group Sought to Normalize Pedophilia in 1982 (I)

Bishop Vangheluwe 2008 in Africa.

by Ferdinand Boischot

In hardly any other country was the secularization and de-Christianization following the Second Vatican Council as deep and broad as in Belgium, and especially in the northern Dutch-speaking area.

Left-oriented, progressive "believers" seized the ecclesiastical structures. Theological expertise, patristics and fundamental theology were quickly removed. With a so-called Haalbaarheidsmoraal ("accessibility morality", but de facto relativization of all moral norms) a complete adaptation to the zeitgeist was carried out and in particular a takeover of the total sexual freedom and a fixation on it.

Within this framework, what is well documented is an almost complete homophilization of the clergy.

The abuse scandals revealed over the last 20 years have also emerged in this context.

The Cardinals Suenens and Danneels and Bishop Jozef Desmet (Diocese of Bruges) were internationally renowned for their progressiveness (Suenens and Desmet played a prominent role in the Second Vatican Council revolution.) Suenens and Danneels propagated sexual freedom at all levels and practiced tolerance, where the successor of Desmet as Bishop of Bruges, Roger Vangheluwe, not only hushed up all sexual scandals, but himself preyed for many years on the children of his own brother.l

Where, at the moment, the Catholic Church is shaken by pedophile and homosexual abuse scandals and this vile situation is denounced by Pope Em. Benedict XVI. and leading cardinals and bishops (Card. Brandmüller, Card. Sarah, Archbishop Viganò), some modernist theologians in Germany and the United States  recite the mantra denying any connection between homosexuality and homophily on the one hand and pedophilia on the other.

It may not be true, but it is true:

In the years immediately before, during and especially after the Second Vatican Council, a mafia-like, male, homosexual and paedosexual group has taken root in the clergy.

The Dutch-language Catholic Church Kerkelijk Leven ("Church Life") had in 1978 at that time a very Catholic Flanders circulation of about 500,000 copies and a then estimated readership of 1.5 million readers. It was the most widely read newspaper in Flanders. It was conducted by the West Flemish diocese of Bruges (then headed by Bishop Emile-Joseph De Smedt) and the Archdiocese of Mechelen-Brussels (Archbishop Danneels), with the Theological Faculty of the University of Louvain which played a major role (so-called Bruges -Louvain axis).

Editor-in-chief of the rather boring paper was the West Flemish priest Felix Dalle, who had very modern views. Some very modernist books were not well received by literary criticism in the 1970s (De vluchtheuvel).

Under Dalle, as part of modernization, the Church paper was renamed Kerk en Leven (Church and Life).

On August 9, 1984, an article about the "Ecumenical Working Group on Pedophilia" appeared in this official North Belgian church paper:

"For some years there has been an ecumenical working group on pedophilia in Flanders.
This working group consists of Catholics and Protestants.
This working group wants to sensitize the churches to the phenomenon of pedophilia, to pass on information and to reduce prejudices.
At the same time, the working group wants to find out about everything that appears in the field of pedophilia.
In addition, the working group aims to create a meeting place for pedophile people to share thoughts and encourage each other.
Everyone is welcome who would like to get to know pedophilia and pedophiles on condition that this happens in openness, respect and reliability.
At the beginning of the new season, the working group will also be involved: Pastor (Pastoor) Jef Barzin, Duinstraat 30, 2008 Antwerp, Tel. (03) 2366395.

The next meeting of the Ecumenical Working Group on Pedophilia will take place on Saturday 8th September in the chapel "The Olive Branch" in Brasschaat, Leopoldslei 35, from 10:00 to 14:00 at the latest.

We are happy to bring a small refreshment.
Further information can be obtained from: Mr. L.P.G. van Tricht, Dorpsstraat 86, 2080 Chapels. For the working group: Th. Weerstra, Van der Meerschenlaan 73, 1150 Brussels. "(2)

It can not be said much more clearly.

The role of Bishop De Smedt in rejecting the prepared scheme of Father Sebastiaan Tromp SJ is also highlighted in the Lexicon of Theology and Church.

In particular, the website edited by the Faculty of Religious Studies of the University of Leuven from 2009ff on 24 November 1962 and 1 December 1962 (Intervention of Bishop De Smedt with the key words: triumphalism, clericalism, juridism).

Bishop Huonder of Chur to Keep Contact With SSPX for The Vatican as He Retires

Acceptance of the age-related resignation of the 77-year-old Swiss bishop is expected shortly - Diocese Chur recently confirmed that Huonder is keeping contact with the Society for the Vatican

Edit: he’s been one of the most Catholic Bishops in Europe, who has remained astonishly in his post till past retirement in a hostile diocese run by professional Catholics in a hostile Church that destroys its best disciples and exults evil ones.

Vatican City ( Bishop Vitus Huonder of Chur was received on Monday by Pope Francis in private audience. Details of the conversation were not announced by the Vatican and the Swiss diocese. Vitus Huonder (76) has been Bishop of Chur since 2007; In April 2017, the Pope had extended his term by two years. As the acceptance of his resignation is expected shortly, on April 21 Huonder will complete his 77th year of life.

As the diocese confirmed at the end of January, Huonder wants to retire to Wangs in the canton of Sankt Gallen. There he will keep contact with the Society for the Vatican. The "Society of Saint Pius X" runs a school in Wangs, the "Institut Sancta Maria".

In January, Pope Francis dissolved the Vatican Commission "Ecclesia Dei" responsible for the dialogue with the Society of Saint Pius X and integrated its task into the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. In the dispute with the Society, there were only differences in Church doctrine, and for this, only the Congregation itself was responsible, it was said in the Pope’s decree.

Even Commonweal is Reporting on the Aberrosexual Cabal Among Francis Inner Circle

Revelations of Aberrosexual Cabals in High Places: Evil Cardinals Wuerl and McCarrick

(Rome) More and more new allegations of sexual abuse are arriving in Rome and shaking the Church, but Pope Francis remains silent. Undeterred, he maintains that homosexuality is not responsible for the abuses committed by clerics, but "clericalism" and the "great accuser," namely, Satan. This denial of reality is meeting with less and less understanding [patience?] in the US, both among conservative and progressive Catholics.

Pope Francis: "The devil is to blame"

Cardinal Bernardin, head of the progressive US Group: homo-cliques in the archbishop's ordinariate

The contribution of the devil involves all who are in the Church. However, the prosecution of Pope Francis against the "great accuser" seems like a distraction to quite a few Catholics. The devil is probably the driving force in the background, but sins and crimes are always committed by concrete people who have to take responsibility. Guilt, which is a core doctrine of the Catholic Church, is always individual.

Francis also seems to take responsibility for this, but as an attempt to shift the concrete, individual guilt to an intangible culprit, who, above all, can not be held accountable. The sexual abuse of minors or seminarians is done by a very specific priest, bishop or cardinal. But you can not put the devil before a secular or ecclesiastical court. Why does Pope Francis only mention him, but he is silent with those who are really guilty? [Because he is indebted to the evil St. Galen Group, who all conspired against Canon Law to get him elected and covered up or participated in human trafficking and sex abuse. ] 

In recent weeks, Francis has  repeatedly urged to defend theChurch  against the devil who "wants to split us". It was about "defending the mother," by which Francis means mother Church: "The accuser attacks, through us, he attacks the mother, but no one must touch the mother ” These were the last words Francis spoke last October 27 in his closing speech to the Synod of the Youth.

Francis is silent at the same time to the concrete allegations that were raised by the former nuncio in the US against him. Francis is silent on the epidemic cases of abuse that are four-fifths of the homosexual kind, so that a connection could not be denied  even by the blind. Francis tries it anyway. Francis is also silent on the reproach that in his pontificate he conspicuously promoted many homosexuals and called them to high and highest positions in the church.

Pope Francis with Cardinal Wuerl

The silence is made easier for him because the Zeitgeist is homophile, which is why the dominant mass media tend to cover up the abuse scandal and in support of Pope Francis.

Vaticanist Sandro Magister repeated it today:

"There is the great silence that the Pope keeps constant. It is one practiced for the homosexuality by many Church representatives. Francis never mentions it when he laments the evil of sexual abuse. "

Undeterred, he holds his own thesis against the obvious. It is not homosexuality that is responsible for clerical abuse, but "clericalism". Even the final document of the Youth Synod makes the thesis its own, which is hardly surprising. Pope Francis occupied the editorial committee almost all the time with loyal followers.

"One must be blind or dishonest not to see the connection with homosexuality and abuse"

Scandal book "Gone With the Wind in the Vatican" (1999)

Through his attitude, Francis not only refuses to respond to one of the gravest challenges facing the Church. He also prevents recovery, because without naming the real causes in name, no recovery will be possible. Even more serious, it appears that Francis, through his behavior,  injures the priesthood, which is badly discredited by black sheep. Whom should the generic accusation of "clericalism" meet, if not the priesthood as such. But with that, the Pope himself puts the vast majority of the faithful priests in the wrong light, and that without much ado. Francis spoke last Saturday of "an elitist and exclusionary view of the vocation that sees the ministry received as an exercise of power rather than an outspoken and generous service." But what does this have to do with the crime of sexual abuse?

Especially in the US, the papal silence and the papal diagnosis of the problem comes increasingly under fire. The Catholic public in the US, whether conservative or progressive, is outraged by the scandal and demands answers.

Even a liberal paper like Commonweal, a progressive voice within US Catholicism, writes that the McCarrick case has exposed the extent to which homosexuality has actually spread among Church officials, and at all levels. Editor-in-Chief of the Journal is Kenneth Woodward, who for many years was Vaticanist of Newsweek. Back in 2003, according to Woodward, the Jay College of Criminal Justice found that "eight out of ten known abuses by priests in the past 70 years have been committed by men on other male persons."

"You have to be blind or dishonest," says Woodward, not to see the connection between homosexuality and abuse.
The accusation of "homophobia", on the other hand, was almost revealing, ridiculous and even vicious.

Woodward revealed that over the course of his 38 years as a Vaticanist, he had learned not only about individual cases of homosexual abusers, but of entire "networks" of homosexual clergy who supported one another and were complicit in their double lives. The editor-in-chief of Commonweal names cases in Los Angeles, Milwaukee, Chicago, Pittsburgh and other dioceses.

Homo Cardinals Bernardin and Wright

Homo Cardinal Wright as bishop

In Chicago, according to Woodward, sociologist Andrew Greeley (priest) deceased in 2013, one of the best-known romance novelists in the US, revealed that there were whole sodomitical cliques in the offices of the Archdiocese of Chicago, as it was headed by his friend, the ultraliberal Cardinal Joseph Bernardin. Cardinal Bernardin was the leader of the progressive wing in the US Church, as is the case today with his successor, Cardinal Blase Cupich, also Archbishop of Chicago. Cupich, appointed archbishop by Pope Francis and elevated to a cardinal, was noted in the past by homophile utterances. Nuncio Viganò counts him among the Circle of Friends of McCarrick, as in 2017 Cupich still awarded him a prize and praised him as a model bishop.

Woodward cites as another example Msgr. John J. Wright, who was Bishop of Pittsburgh from 1959-1969. Wright established in 1961 in his diocese an "Oratory" for young university students, "which drew gay priests dressed like bees to honey.” Wright was a "brilliant intellectual" who was courted by the "liberal" media in the US. In 1969 Pope Paul VI. appointed him to the Roman Curia and made him the Prefect of Congregation of Clergy and a cardinal. In Rome Wright continued his homosexual double life unchecked.

Wright as Bishop of Pittsburgh with his secretary Wuerl

"Many knew of his double life with young lovers while watching over the education of Catholic priests around the world," said Vaticanist Sandro Magister.

Anyone who knew for sure exactly about Wright's gay double life is none other than Cardinal Donald Wuerl. Wuerl was until recently Archbishop of Washington. Pope Francis tried to keep him in office after Archbishop Viganò had published his allegations. When the matter became too hot for Francis himself because of increasing criticism, he dropped his friend Wuerl, not without thanking him in a moving voice. One thing was certain: Cardinal Wuerl could no longer be held. He had to resign, but not because Pope Francis wanted it that way. Wuerl was Wright's personal secretary when he was Bishop of Pittsburgh. Even when Wright was called to Rome, Wuerl was "closer to him than the hair on his head," Woodward said. Wuerl was Wright's assistant in the second Conclave of 1978, in which John Paul II was elected. At the first conclave of that year he was prevented for health reasons. Wright died in 1979.

Woodward leaves it at these two examples, but gives to understand that he could call up numerous other cases of high church dignitaries.

The high prelate with a "weakness" for young men

Cardinal Rigali 

This was partly done in 1999 by an anonymous book entitled "Gone with the Wind in the Vatican" (Via col vento in Vaticano). The curator Msgr. Luigi Marinelli, who died in 2000, was later identified as the author. The book describes an American prelate who made a great career in Rome and had a "weakness" for young men. He worked at the Bishops' Congregation, was sent back to the United States as archbishop of a major diocese, then promoted to head pastor of an even more important archdiocese and eventually promoted to cardinal.

The description actually applies only to Cardinal Francis Rigali, who was appointed secretary of the Bishops' Congregation in 1989. In 1994 he was appointed Archbishop of St. Louis and promoted to Archbishop of Philadelphia in 2003. From 1985 to 1989 Rigali headed the Pontifical Diplomatic Academy in Rome. Cardinal Rigali participated in the 2005 and 2013 Conclaves.

In the US, homosexual networks in the Church are referred to as "lavender lobbies," says Woodward.

The problem, the journalist says, "is that nobody in the Catholic hierarchy seems to be interested in investigating," not even the charges brought by Archbishop Viganò, who have already done some important groundwork.
Viganò mentions in his dossier several acting cardinals, which he counts as a gay lobby in the Church.

But how can young people, especially male youth, i.e. future priests, especially seminarians, can be protected from homosexual networks and gay vultures, when perpetrators lurk in the guise of superiors, perhaps even their bishop or a cardinal? As long as Pope Francis remains silent and tries to cover up the situation by diverting to side-scenes.

Communist Mayor of Milan Renames Street --- Via Carlo Maria Martini

Cardinal Martini's Spirit Lies Over the Church
(Rome) Recently Milan's mayor, Giuliano Pisapia, officially and with ceremony changed the name of Via dell'Arcivescovado of Milan into "Via Carlo Maria Martini". It's a renaming which reveals alliances.

Via dell'Arcivescovado is the street named for  the nearby seat of the Archbishop. It's the street adjacent to the Cathedral of Milan, and opens into the Piazza Fontana.The street name is ancient, since Milan was made into an Archbishopcric in the 4th century  and among the most important and most historical diocese of the world.

Globalization and relativism

Pisapia justified the street naming by saying that he is a "laicist" (a synonym for atheist), who regards the former Archbishop of Milan and Cardinal as his "spiritual master."  In a special way, Pisapia praised Martinis "opening" to immigration and of his being a "man of the doubt". In other words, Pisapia praised Martini's consent to the dominant currents of globalization and relativism," said Messa in Latino.
Mayor Pisapia has belonged since the 70s to 1991 to the left-wing, Trotskyist Workers' Democracy. After the collapse of the Eastern bloc and the social democratization of the Italian Communist Party, he joined in 1991 the old Communist Party of the Communist Refoundation, which he represented from 1996 to 2006 as a deputy in the Italian Parliament. Ahead of the mayoral elections of 2011 he declared himself independent, to be accepted as a candidate of a broad left alliance. The well-known criminal lawyer won in the primaries of the Left parties and in the mayoral election against the right-wing incumbent.
The reigning Archbishop was present at the ceremony for the street name change, Cardinal Angelo Scola,  who had recently called for the introduction of Islamic festivals at public schools and describes  himself as   'a theorist of miscegenation'. "Cardinal Scola was visibly pleased," said Messa in Latino .
Street namings require suitable roads, so time related renames are common. "The renaming of the street, the timeless Archdiocese resigned itself as an institution behind concrete and also controversial figure of  an archbishop. The archdiocese will ever thus be equated with this bishop," said Messa in Latino .

Globalization and immigration, which unifies "all" 

The traditional site viewed the renaming through the big picture and alliances which go well beyond Italy:
"I remember how the current mayor prepared the law for 'room for a shot,' with which he wanted to create public spaces where  addicts can inject their dose undisturbed in peace and from the law. I remember the recent and repeated statements of the mayor on homosexuality. These beliefs intellectual Martini student I would ask as Cardinal Scola some questions about the attitudes of the Jesuit Cardinal Martini, who sat on the throne of the church father Ambrose more than 20 years. But Zingaropoli and the immigration issue unites them all: the fashionable radical, former leftist extremist streetfighter of the ' Order for Services' of Mario Capanna 1 , the representative of the globalist community, Communion and Liberation (CL), Cardinal Scola, the late Cardinal Martini and the present Bishop of Rome, which, although infinitely less formed than a Martini, is but the faithful disciple in the Society of Jesus.  'By their fruits ye shall know them ', but someone said of some importance. I want my Via dell'Arcivescovado again! "
Cardinal Martini was one of the founders  in the 90s of the internal church secret circle of "Sankt Gallen", in which he gathered cardinals and bishops, who after Pope John Paul II, and then Benedict XVI., sought to impose a pope of their choice to change the course of the Church and change its mind.
