More Evidence Surfaces About Fake Vatican Letter
More evidence has surfaced concerning the forged letter of Benedict XVI which the Vatican had deceitfully used to refute conservative Catholics who question Pope Francis’ theological formation and teaching.

To recap, Vatican communications director Msgr. Dario Vigano had attempted to elicit Benedict’s endorsement of an 11-volume set he co-authored on the theology of Pope Francis, whereupon the former pontiff replied with a letter saying he would not be able to offer any support for the work.


Apparently angered by the reply, Vigano and his colleagues proceeded to alter p. 1 of the letter, and craftily hiding the second page they photographed the letter and sent it to media outlets on March 13 as a promo to rebut critics of Francis who question his theological and philosophical heft and say he represents a rupture from Benedict’s doctrine-minded papacy.

The Vatican admitted to The Associated Press on March 14 that the letter was doctored. The bottom 2 lines of p. 1 were phased out via Photoshop, so that what was highlighted was a revised p. 1 in which Benedict purportedly criticized Church conservatives for their “foolish prejudice” in not recognizing that “Pope Francis is a man of profound philosophical and theological formation.”

We now have this update from Vatican specialist Sandro Magister that an entire paragraph from p. 2 of Benedict’s letter was deleted by Vigano because Benedict therein expressed his displeasure that anti-papal heretics and enemies co-authored the 11-volume set.  The deleted paragraph reads:

“Just as a side note, I would like to mention my surprise at the fact that the authors also include Professor Hünermann, who during my pontificate put himself in the spotlight by heading anti-papal initiatives. He played a major role in the promulgation of the “Kölner Erklärung,” which, in relation to the encyclical “Veritatis Splendor,” virulently attacked the magisterial authority of the pope, especially on questions of moral theology. Also the “Europäische Theologengesellschaft,” which he founded, was initially designed as an organization in opposition to the papal magisterium….

“I am certain that you will have understanding for my declination.”

Magister says in his report, “The letter by Benedict XVI that Settimo Cielo published on March 13 in its complete form was in reality not complete. Between the paragraph omitted in the press release and the valediction there were, in fact, other lines.”

And so we see the Vatican attempting to use the aging Benedict to endorse the multi-volume work that was co-authored by arch-enemies of the papacy and the Church. Deo Gratias that Papa Benedict is still in his wits!

What we need to consider more closely is the diabolical nature of the individual who orchestrated the fake letter. The fact is that Vigano, a known homosexual, hired the radical LGBT communications company Accenture to redo and take over the Vatican’s news service in 2017, which is precisely what led to this insidious scheme. This is not said derogatorily, but as a simple fact. Homosexuality places one in league with the “father of liars,” and when a sodomite is so vile as to arrange for a powerful political LGBT entity to infiltrate and take over the Vatican news service, it renders him an agent of hell incapable of advancing Apostolic truth.

The facts have already proved this, i.e. they inserted phrases, they blurred out sentences, and now they deleted a whole paragraph of Benedict’s letter, not to mention whatever else they did. This is not to mention that Vigano deliberately published the doctored letter after Benedict had marked “personal” and “confidential” on the envelope. This constitutes a clear violation of privacy, a theft! All done to make us think that Benedict criticizes the “foolish prejudice” of those who adhere to Catholic tradition. According to the Benedict letter ala Vigano, Cardinals Burke, Sarah and the good dubia cardinals are stubborn “fools” for questioning why Francis would dissent from Church doctrine and sanction divorce to the point of allowing Communion for divorced Catholics living in adultery.

The fact is that Benedict endorses these tradition-minded cardinals, and on May 19, 2017 he praised Cardinal Sarah for his work to restore traditional discipline to Catholic worship, saying, “With Cardinal Sarah, a master of silence and of interior prayer, the liturgy is in good hands.”

Moreover, in July 2017 Benedict gave a moving tribute to the late Cardinal Joachim Meisner of Germany, one of the four stalwart cardinals who authored and signed their name to the dubia letter of September 19th, 2016, wherein Pope Francis was questioned about his affirming the sacrilegious interpretation of Amoris Laetitia. The following from Benedict XVI was read at Meisner’s funeral Mass in Cologne on July 15:

“This passionate shepherd and pastor found it difficult to leave his post, especially at a time in which the Church stands in particularly pressing need of convincing shepherds who can resist the dictatorship of the spirit of the age and who live and think the faith with determination. However, what moved me all the more was that, in this last period of his life, he learned to let go and to live out of a deep conviction that the Lord does not abandon his Church, even if the boat has taken on so much water as to be on the verge of capsizing.”

“Convincing shepherds who can resist the dictatorship of the spirit of the age and who live and think the faith with determination” is a reference to those champions of orthodoxy who resist change and who think with tradition, e.g. clerics like Cardinals Burke, Sarah, and Lefebvre, whom Benedict has supported. The Church “on the verge of capsizing” references the in-house fighting and turmoil wrought by Francis and his progressivist allies who have just about brought the Barque of Peter to the point of sinking.

Granted, Benedict may be weak at times, he may flee from the wolves; he may even express diplomatic kindness toward Francis to keep the peace. But he does not agree with Francis’ radical agenda. He made some serious mistakes in his early years, indeed he did, but we cannot deny that he went from being a progressive Vatican II modernist who slighted the dogma of the Eucharist to one who required everyone at his Masses to receive Communion kneeling and on the tongue; from one who eagerly assisted the Vatican II liturgical revolution to one who spearheaded a historic move to universally return the Latin Tridentine Mass. Perhaps his amendment was not what some had hoped for, but he moved gradually to the right with some imperfection, aided by God’s grace. We might see Benedict XVI as a gradual “Damascus” figure.

Let us therefore stand behind Benedict XVI with prayer and not dignify the deception of those Vatican wolves who forced his resignation and who now exploit him for their own perverted ends.
