“Pope” Francis’s jihad against the Catholic priesthood under the guise of taking a stand against “clericalism” is another clear indicator that we are not dealing with a true pontiff but with an enemy of the Catholic Church in rather unconvincing disguise. He must be exposed for what he is — a pretender to the Chair of Peter — not feebly resisted as simply a wayward pope. The longer he is allowed to falsely function in his putative
The betrayal was just beginning. In mid-September, Modernist Rome cut a deal with Beijing that gave Bergoglio’s blessing to seven bishops appointed by the Communist government. A bleak New York Times headline accurately described what was going on: “With Vatican Talks and Bulldozers, China Aims to Control Christianity”.
Then, in early October, the rotten agreement yielded more bad fruit as bulldozers turned their menacing attention to historic sites of Catholic pilgrimage, destroying two Marian s
ROME - Earlier this year global Catholicism around the world was jolted by shocking accusations made by Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, former Vatican ambassador to the United States, who published a scathing letter accusing Pope Francis of negligence in handling allegations of sexual misconduct on the part of ex-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick and asking the pontiff to resign.
ALTAR OF SECRETS . This was shocking but something I was already privy to know. It is a very good book exposing the truth of Vatican II clergy. It is a MUST READ.
Cover up of the Conference of Bishops in Australia and the Philippines and by the Pope.

The Youth Synod, which is ending today, counted among the heretics invited as observers a female priestess of the so-called Czechoslovak Hussite Church, Martina Kopecká, 32. She was present as representative of the World Council of Churches – WCC – a KGB-controlled ecumenical organization, as we verified recently. Kopecká was not only present but was also invited to speak at the synod.
In June 2018 she had been a guest at a special luncheon Pope Francis hosted at the Vatican for some WCC members
Amid a British investigation into sexual abuse, Cardinal Vincent Nichols of Westminster is expected to face questions regarding the way his archdiocese handled allegations of misconduct made against his predecessor, Cardinal Cormac Murphy O’Connor.
When he retired, the ultra-conservative Pope Benedict XVI was expected to disappear from view, clearing the way for his liberal successor, Francis, to clean house in the notoriously corrupt Vatican. Instead, he stayed, setting the stage for a de-stabilizing brawl over morality, theology, and the Church’s horrific legacy of sexual abuse.
After years in decline, Vatican II Catholic clergy sex abuse could be on the rise again, warns a professor-priest’s analysis of relevant data.
The professor’s report sees a rising trend in abuse, and argues that the evidence strongly suggests links between sexual abuse of minors and two factors: a disproportionate number of homosexual clergy, and the manifestation of a “homosexual subculture” in seminaries.
Cardinal Pell formally pleaded not guilty to the charges on Tuesday. He has consistently denied any wrongdoing.
An Australian magistrate ruled on Tuesday that there was enough evidence for the case to proceed to a trial on some charges, but not on others.
Cardinal Pell, 76, is Australia's most senior Catholic and one of the most powerful officials in the Vatican.
He was given a large police guard as he entered the Melbourne Magistrates' Court in front of dozens of media representatives and members of the public.
ROME — Pope Francis has accepted the resignation of Cardinal Theodore E. McCarrick, the former archbishop of Washington, from the College of Cardinals, ordering him to a “life of prayer and penance” after allegations that the cardinal sexually abused minors and adult seminarians over the course of decades, the Vatican announced on Saturday.
Acting swiftly to contain a widening sex abuse scandal at the highest levels of the Roman Catholic Church
Pope Francis is refusing to comment on whether or not he was aware of the sexual abuse allegations against the former archbishop of Washington D.C.
The Vatican believes that their last statement on the issue should be “enough” for reporters to “draw their own conclusions.”
Ireland's Roman Catholic archbishops and police covered up four decades of child sex abuse by priests in a conspiracy to protect the reputation of the church, a report found.
Clergy were able to molest hundreds of vulnerable children because of a "systemic, calculated perversion of power" that put their abusers above the law, the Irish government said.
The damning verdict on the conduct of church and secular authorities followed a three-year investigation into allegations of child abuse by priests in Dublin going back to the 1960s.
Investigators who were given access to 60,000 previous secret church files accused four Archbishops of Dublin of deliberately suppressing evidence of "widespread" abuse.
They are Francisco José Cox Huneeus, archbishop emeritus of La Serena, and Marco Antonio Órdenes Fernández, archbishop emeritus of Iquique.
The Vatican issued a statement on their defrocking after a meeting between the pontiff and the president of Chile.
The decision could not be appealed against, it said on Saturday.
It was announced as Pope Francis met Chile's President Sebastian Piñera in the Vatican, where the two spoke particularly about "the painful scourge of abuse of minors".
More than 100 Catholic clergy are being investigated in Chile over alleged sex crimes and attempts to cover them up.
The 67-year-old said he will step aside from his duties as Archbishop this Friday but refuses to resign unless it is 'necessary or appropriate'.
'It is appropriate that, in the light of some of his Honour's findings, I stand aside from my duties as Archbishop,' Wilson released in a statement to the media.
Bernard Law quit as archbishop of Boston in 2002 after criticism of his handling of paedophile priests but although a pariah in the US he was honoured in Rome.
Law is likely to be insulated from any controversy: in the 13 years since his resignation, he has found a haven far from Boston, behind the walls of the Vatican.
At the time of his resignation, the cardinal was being pilloried publicly for having turned a blind eye to sex abuse, and embodying a culture that “reflexively placed the reputation of the church above the pain of victims”.
But for years, he served in an honorific role as the archpriest of the Basilica of the Santa Maria Maggiore until his retirement, at the age of 80, in 2011.
Today, Law enjoys the quiet life that any senior and retired cardinal living in Vatican City would: he is a fixture of the annual 4 July Independence Day party held by the US embassy to the Holy See, and was until recently considered an active and important conservative voice within many of the Vatican offices where he served.
Vatican II Catholic Church sex abuse cover-up in Pennsylvania ‘went all the way to the Vatican’, says state attorney general.
Josh Shapiro described the abuses dating back to 1947 found by a grand jury in an interview with NBC’s Today Show, including “a systematic cover up that went all the way to the Vatican”.
“I can’t specifically speak to Pope Francis,” the attorney general said Monday about whether or not the the pontiff was aware of the abuses. But, he said: “We have evidence that the Vatican had knowledge of a cover up.
An estimated 300 Roman Catholic priests in Pennsylvania molested more than 1,000 children – and possibly many more – since the 1940s, according to a scathing Pennsylvania grand jury report that accused senior church officials, including the man who is now archbishop of Washington, DC, of systematically covering up complaints.
The “real number” of victimised children and abusive priests might be higher since some secret church records were lost
The scope of sex abuse within Germany's Vatican II Catholic Church has been laid out for all to see following a four-year investigation. Head bishop Cardinal Reinhard Marx admitted that the church has lost public trust.
The Vatican II Catholic Church in Guam has announced plans to file Chapter 11 bankruptcy, in an attempt to cope with the scores of sexual abuse claims against clergy in the U.S. territory. Archbishop Michael Byrnes said the Archdiocese of Agana settled on the move as the most expedient way to support the alleged victims.
"Over the last two years, we've done our best. We've strengthened our policies for a safe environment. We've educated over 2,000 people in the practices of safe environment protection of minors. We've made a lot of great strides," Byrnes said at a news conference Wednesday.
"But our biggest issue is the almost 200 victim survivors of sexual abuse."
Byrnes took over as archbishop on the West Pacific island in 2016, shortly after his predecessor, Anthony Apuron, was suspended under a cloud of suspicion. Apuron has been accused of sexually abusing minors — including his own nephew --
The Philippines Vatican II Catholic Church has apologised for sexual abuse by hundreds of its priests over the last 20 years.
According to the president of the Catholic Bishops Conference, Archbishop Orlando Quevedo, about 200 of the country's 7,000 priests may have committed "sexual misconduct" - including child abuse, homosexuality and affairs - over the past two decades.
To the various crises in society, we must now, with great sorrow and shame, add problems in the Church The Vatican II Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines said on Monday that it was now drafting guidelines on how to deal with such offences by its clergy.
When sexual scandals involving Catholic priests in the US came to light earlier this year, the Philippines media began reporting on abuses by local priests.
Monday's statement was the first official response from the Church in the Philippines, where at least 85% of the 76 million-strong population is Catholic.
Lurid accusations of priests involved in sex orgies, porn videos and prostitution have emerged from several parishes in Italy recently, sending shock waves all the way to the Vatican and challenging the high standards Pope Francis demands of clergy.
In the southern city of Naples, for example, a priest was recently suspended from the parish of Santa Maria degli Angeli over claims he held gay orgies and used Internet sites to recruit potential partners whom he paid for sex.
The allegations concerning the Rev. Mario D’Orlando were brought to the attention of the diocese when an anonymous letter was sent to a Naples bishop. D’Orlando denied the charges when he was summoned by the city’s archbishop, Cardinal Crescenzio Sepe, but is now facing a formal inquiry conducted by local church officials.
In the northern city of Padua, a 48-year-old priest, the Rev. Andrea Contin, is facing defrocking as well as judicial proceedings amid accusations he had up to 30 lovers, some of whom he took to a swingers’ resort in France.
Vatican II Catholic Church in Italy was embroiled in a fresh scandal on Friday when photographs apparently showing homosexual priests attending gay nightclubs and engaging in casual sex were published in a magazine.
A journalist from Panorama, a conservative weekly news magazine owned by the Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi, used a hidden camera to film interviews with three gay priests.
The priests introduced the journalist to the gay clubs they apparently frequent and allowed the journalist to film their sexual encounters with strangers, including one in a church building.
One of the priests, a Frenchman identified only as Paul, celebrated Mass in the morning before driving the two escorts he had hired to attend a party the night before to the airport, Panorama said.
The Catholic Church in Italy, still reeling from the paedophile priest scandal, responded on Friday by ordering homosexual priests who are leading a double life to come out of the closet and leave the priesthood.
The French Vatican II Catholic Church has for years protected priests and others under its authority who were accused of sexual assaults, and paedophile crimes in particular.
Mediapart investigation reveals how 25 bishops, five of who are still active, were directly involved in protecting 24 people, mostly priests, accused of sexual
They were among 32 alleged perpetrators of sex crimes who are identified here as having been protected by the Church, and whose alleged victims total 339. The method employed often involved the transfer of the alleged perpetrators, a number of who have now been convicted for sex crimes, to distant geographical locations both in France and abroad.
Pope Francis has said that the devil is alive and well and working overtime to undermine the Roman Catholic Church. Instead of pointing the finger at perverted paedophile priests, he says that Satan is to blame for the sexual abuse crisis and deep divisions within the church. To help combat child abusing priests, he wants Catholics to recite a special prayer every day in October.
