Pope Francis is Stonewalling a Summons for his Head of the CDF to Stand Trial for Sex Abuse Cover-up: Massive Media Cover-up

Pope Francis's Vatican is stonewalling a summons for his head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith to stand trial for sex abuse cover-up.

Imagine the media outcry if Pope John Paul II's powerful Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) perfect Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger [later to be Pope Benedict XVI] had been summoned to stand trail for sex abuse cover-up and the Vatican had stonewalled the summons.

It appears that Pope Francis's powerful Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) perfect Archbishop Ladaria Ferrer has been summoned to stand trail for sex abuse cover-up and the Vatican has stonewalled the summons while almost all of the American Catholic and secular media are covering it up.

This is a massive American media cover-up.

The United Kingdom's Tablet on September 11, 2018 reported:

"A French court has ordered Cardinal Philippe Barbarin, Archbishop of Lyon, to face trail in early January on charges of failing to denounce a sexually abusive priest, without the presence of co-defendant Vatican Cardinal Luis Ladaria Ferrer, Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF)."

"The twice-delayed trial of Cardinal Barbarin, who denies wrongdoing in an abuse case tormenting his archdiocese, should go ahead on 7-9 January despite the Vatican's failure to respond to a summons issued to Cardinal Ladaria, it decided."

"... Barbarin faces the civil trial along with Cardinal Ladaria, two French bishops and a priest for failing to report a confessed serial abuser, Fr Bernard Preynat, to the police for abusing many Catholic boy scouts during the 1980s."

"The cardinal has denied wrongdoing but admitted his reaction to abuse accusations he learned about in 2007 was “belated”. Preynat was not removed from ministry until 2015."

"Lawyers for the victims say Ladaria had advised Barbarin by letter in 2015 to discipline Preynat but avoid public scandal. At the time, he was secretary of the CDF, the Vatican department that handles clerical sexual abuse cases."

"Their trial was first delayed because the summons was not translated into Spanish and Italian and sent to Rome in time. It has since been submitted to the Vatican."

“'This is turning into a soap opera. It’s enough!' Eymeric Molin, a lawyer for the defence, complained while arguing for the trial to go ahead without Ladaria.""

Plaintiff François Devaux, head of the victims’ group, countered that the Vatican should not be able to hide behind legal technicalities. “If this takes another three years (to resolve), we’ll hang on,” he said."[https://www.thetablet.co.uk/news/9722/barbarin-trial-to-go-ahead-without-accused-cdf-prefect]

Sex abuse expert Betty Clermont reveals what Francis's CDF perfect Archbishop Ladaria Ferrer who judges the sex abuse cases for the Pope is accused of:

"Pope Francis appointed Ladaria as prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, the Vatican department that addresses cases of clergy sexual abuse, on June 30. Ladaria had previously served as secretary, the second highest official."

"Three days later, Ladaria was accused of covering up for Fr. Gianni Trotta. 'The congregation received complaints against Trotta in 2009 and three years later found him guilty of sexually abusing minors, demoting him from the priesthood but failing to inform the Italian authorities …. Ladaria wrote to the bishop of Foggia in 2012 instructing him not to divulge the reasons why Trotta had been stripped of his priesthood 'so as to avoid scandal.'"

 'Trotta continued to dress as a priest and became the coach of a youth soccer team."

"Trotta, already convicted of sexual violence against an 11-year-old and sentenced to eight years in prison by a civil court, is now standing trial for nine other alleged cases of sex abuse against boys that occurred in 2014. 'Trotta allegedly raped five, abused others in his home individually or in groups, photographing them during sexual acts.'”

“'If Ladaria had informed the police, these children would have been safe,' journalist and Vatican expert Emiliano Fittipaldi noted."

Pope Francis's Head of CDF to Stand Trial for Sex Abuse Cover-up & Top Advisor Symbolizes Sex Abuse Cover-up

On October 11, Michael Dougherty in an article for National Review titled "The Case against Pope Francis" revealed that "Archbishop Luis Ladaria Ferrer, is set to stand trail in France for his role in covering-up a child-sex-abuse scandal. Francis made him head of the Vatican's [CDF] doctrinal office, which adjudicates [judges] abuse cases."

Maybe even worst, Francis's top advisor, also, is accused of protecting a pedophile priest and says he will not "denounce" pedophiles to the FBI, claims sex abuse journalist whistleblowers are "beasts" and says sex abuse cover-up Cardinal Bernard Law "was a saint."

Vatican expert John Allen reports who is the Pope's top advisor and that he "symbolizes" the "Pope Francis era":

Cardinal Oscar Rodríguez Maradiaga "symbolizes" the "Pope Francis era... he comes off as virtually a 'vice-pope,' the coordinator of Francis’ all-important council of cardinal advisors [C9] and his most visible and outspoken interpreter."
[https://cruxnow.com/church/2015/05/12/comeback-of-honduran-vice-pope-symbolizes-pope-francis-era/]

Sadly, the Cardinal who "symbolizes" the "Pope Francis era'" symbolizes sex abuse cover-up:

Italian journalist Emiliano Fittipaldi is one of the two Italian journalists charged in the Vatileaks 2 trial. The Vatican put him in court because of his last book on Vatican financial corruption. In his new book "Lust: Sins, Scandals, and Betrayal of a Church Made of Men," he reports that Francis and his top advisors, specifically Maradiaga, are covering-up or undermining investigations on sex abuse on a global scale.

In an interview with ComunidadeCulturaeArte.com, Fittipaldi said Maradiaga protected a pedophile priest, claimed that "Cardinal Law was a saint" and said that he "would never denounce" pedophile priests to the FBI:

"Maradiaga [Honduran Cardinal], from whom we have not yet spoken, but who is the coordinator of C9 and is a great friend of Francisco. The pope gave no importance to the fact that Maradiaga had protected a priest from the Costa Rica pedophile, fugitive from Interpol, who was found in bed with an eight-year-old child by his mother. This pedophile priest went around North America to Central America until he arrived in Honduras. In Tegucigalpa, which is the diocese of Maradiaga, he found hospitality for six months."

"Maradiaga is someone who in Rome, in 2004, when there was the ' Spotlight ' scandal, due to the investigation of our colleagues from the Boston Globe, said that the Boston Globe and CNN were beasts, Friends of the Jews of Israel, that the denunciations were not true and that Cardinal Law was a saint. He also said that he would never denounce a priest to the FBI, even if he was a pedophile, because priests are not cops. A man who says that kind of thing, ten years later, thanks to Francisco, has become one of the most powerful men in the Vatican." (ComunidadeCulturaeArte.com, "Emiliano Fittipaldi: ‘Para Francisco, a pedofilia é uma questão secundária,'" October 20, 2017, Google translation)
[https://www.comunidadeculturaearte.com/emiliano-fittipaldi-para-francisco-a-pedofilia-e-uma-questao-secundaria/]

In the interview Fittipaldi, also, said "Ratzinger [Pope Benedict XVI]... was very traditionalist and conservative, and so the journalists did not like him, but he did important things. The things he did in relation to pedophilia, which was not much, but double the time for prescribing crimes in the Vatican, sent away almost 600 priests in a few years. The incredible thing is that Francis did a lot less."

Journalist Hilary White confirmed the Fittipaldi understatement reporting that Francis "has all but completely dismantled" the "effective" reforms instituted against clerical sex abuse by Benedict:

"Pope Benedict installed effective procedural reforms on clerical sex abuse; Francis... has all but completely dismantled or reversed those changes... Benedict 'had defrocked or suspended more than 800 priests for past sexual abuse between 2009 and 2012'... His reforms specifically included bishops who refused to act against priest-abusers... 'This Pope has removed two to three bishops per month'... These reforms - and - removals - have ceased entirely under Francis."
(Remnant, "Pope Francis Accused of Inaction in Notorious Sex Abuse Cases, January 25, 2017)

The Pope on top of almost completely dismantling Benedict's effective sex abuse reforms, also, put a archbishop accused of sex abuse cover-up in charge of judging sex abuse cases for him as Dougherty reported.


Sex abuse expert Betty Clermont reveals what Francis's powerful Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) perfect Archbishop Ladaria Ferrer who judges of sex abuse cases for Francis is accused of:

"Pope Francis appointed Ladaria as prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, the Vatican department that addresses cases of clergy sexual abuse, on June 30. Ladaria had previously served as secretary, the second highest official."

"Three days later, Ladaria was accused of covering up for Fr. Gianni Trotta. 'The congregation received complaints against Trotta in 2009 and three years later found him guilty of sexually abusing minors, demoting him from the priesthood but failing to inform the Italian authorities …. Ladaria wrote to the bishop of Foggia in 2012 instructing him not to divulge the reasons why Trotta had been stripped of his priesthood 'so as to avoid scandal.'"

'Trotta continued to dress as a priest and became the coach of a youth soccer team."

"Trotta, already convicted of sexual violence against an 11-year-old and sentenced to eight years in prison by a civil court, is now standing trial for nine other alleged cases of sex abuse against boys that occurred in 2014. 'Trotta allegedly raped five, abused others in his home individually or in groups, photographing them during sexual acts.'”

“'If Ladaria had informed the police, these children would have been safe,' journalist and Vatican expert Emiliano Fittipaldi noted."
[://opentabernacle.wordpress.com/author/bettyclermont/]

Moreover, the Business Standard reported in 2017 that Ladaria Ferrer was to go to trail on April 4, 2018 in France for "complicity in the alleged cover-up" of paedophile priest Fr. Bernard Preynat according to the Business Standard.
(Business Standard, "French cardinal, Vatican official to stand trial for paedophilia cover-up," September 19, 2017)

Pope Francis, Martin Luther, the Devil and Heresy

Pope Francis recently cryptically called Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò the "Great Accuser" which is a name for the devil.

Francis in his fixation with the devil and his foes as well as feces and heresy appears almost to be possessed by the spirit of Martin Luther who never stopped talking about excrement and talking to the devil:

""Devil, I have just s*** in my trousers. Have you smelled it?"
-Martin Luther
(Queenmobs.com, "Fecal Fridays: Martin Luther on the Toilet," December 1, 2017)

Luther had continuous visions of the devil and of excrement as all Luther scholars know:

"The filthy language of Luther... a vocabulary of excrement... -against Satan... in his later years the violence and frequent obscenity... directed at his human foes."
("Martin Luther," by Michael A. Mullet, page 338)

Besides the Pope's fixation on the devil, his foes and feces, it appears that Francis has, also, joined Luther in believing in the heresy of imputed grace justification.

Luther's image of imputed grace was that man was a pile of dung covered with snow.

Protestant "justification" for him was totally corrupted man being covered by grace and unfree because of his corruption to fulfill the moral law.

The pro-Francis Bishop Robert Barron wrote Martin Luther is "a mystic of grace" and "the religious movement he launched was 'a love affair.'"

Pope Francis's love affair with Luther's justification heresy goes even farther than Barron who said "I disagree with lots of his ideas."

Francis referring to Luther said:

"Lutherans and Catholics, Protestants, all of us agree on the doctrine of justification. On this point, which is very important, he did not err." (patheos.com/blog/scotticalt, "Pope Francis is Wrong about Luther and Justification," April 5, 2017)

Francis & Barron need to explain what part of man being a pile of dung covered with snow (grace) so corrupt that he isn't free to fulfill the moral law is "not err" and a "love affair" of a "mystic of grace."

Theologian Dr. E. Christian Brugger and First Thing editor Elliott Milco agree that Francis's grace/justification teachings in Amoris Laetitia and his Argentine letter apparently are condemned as heretical by the Council of Trent.

Milco in his article "Francis's Argentine Letter And The Proper Response" counters Francis's idea of grace with the infallible Catholic teaching which says:

Trent's doctrine of infused grace said "that graces truly sanctify and liberates, and that baptized Christians are always free to fulfill the moral law, even when they fail to do so."

Pope Francis is denying the very concept of Catholic sanctifying grace and justification.

This is the greatest material error by any Pope is the entire history of the Church.

It needs to be "loudly and forcefully condemned" or it will lead to apostasy and will destroy the vast majority of Catholicism like it did European Protestantism.

Former Congregation for the Doctrine consultor Msgr. Nicola Bux under Pope Benedict XVI told Vatican expert Edward Pentin that Francis is spreading "apostasy":

"Pope Francis could stem the 'confusion and apostasy"... by 'correcting' his own 'ambiguous and erroneous words and acts." (lifesitenews.com, "Only Pope Francis can end the 'apostasy' his words caused: Italian monsignor," June 21, 2017)

Pray an Our Father now that one cardinal receive the grace to correct Francis.

Cd. Ouellet says Pope Francis had No "Interest" in Zero Tolerance for Predator McCarrick

Pope Francis collaborator Cardinal Marc Ouellet in an open letter admitted that ex-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick was under punitive restrictions before Francis took office and that the present pope took no "interest" in zero tolerance for McCarrick even after he was informed of credible sex abuse allegations against the then cardinal by Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò"

On October 7, The Wall Street Journal reported that senior Vatican official Cardinal Ouellet, head of the Vatican's office of bishop, admitted that ex-Cardinal McCarrick was under punitive restrictions before Francis took office:

Cardinal Ouellet "called the 'monstrous accusation' that Pope Francis ignored reports of sexual misconduct by a key cardinal, but confirmed a key point of the accusation: that the cardinal had been under punitive restrictions when the pope took office in 2013."

"... Ouellet acknowledged that Cardinal McCarrick had been 'forcefully exhorted not to travel and not to appear in public'... on account of 'rumors'... [that] didn't amount to formal 'sanctions' decreed by Pope Benedict XVI and annulled by Pope Francis."
(The Wall Street Journal, "Vatican Denounces Accusation Against Pope but Confirms Key Point," October 7, 2018)

Apparently, the senior Vatican official Ouellet is not only admitting that McCarrick was under punitive restrictions, but that Francis removed what he would call informal punitive restrictions on a serial sexual abuser and predator.

The senior Vatican official, also, admitted in his opinion that Francis wasn't "interested" that a senior Cardinal was a serial sexual abuser and predator. The pope, apparently, was so little "interested" in zero tolerance of clerical and bishop sexual abusers that he removed the informal punitive restrictions from the predator. The Wall Street article revealed:

"Archbishop Viganò has alleged that he informed Pope Francis about the U. S. cardinal's situation in June 2013... Ouellet didn't contradict the allegation, but replied: 'I strongly doubt that McCarrick interested [the pope]... he was an 82-year-old retired archbishop."

Finally, Ouellet is, apparently, incompetent or lied when he said "His [McCarrick's] case would have been the subject of new disciplinary measures if the nunciature in Washington, or any other source, had provided us with recent and decisive information about his behavior."
(National Catholic Register, "Cardinal Ouellet writes Open Letter to Archbishop Viganò," October 7, 2018)

"Decisive information" about McCarrick being a serial sex-abuser and predator was received by the Vatican from whistleblower Fr. Boniface Ramsay in 2000 according to the Associated Press as posted in the UK Daily Mail:

"A 2006 letter from Cardinal Leonardo Sandi, a top Vatican official confirms that the Holy See received information in 2000 about the sexual misconduct of Cardinal Theodore McCarrick."
(Daily Mail, "Letter confirms Vatican KNEW about sex abuse claims against Cardinal McCarrick's in 2000, September 7, 2018)

If Ouellet is not incompetent or lying he must explain why he didn't know about the Ramsey letter received by Cardinal Sandi.

Francis Joke: I will Investigate the Charge that I Covered-up for McCarrick & let you know "in Due Course"

The fake news Reuters and company are in the the heights of excitement with headlines like:

"Pope orders 'thorough study' of Vatican documents in McCarrick abuse case"

Pope Francis basically said:

I will investigate the charge that I and others covered-up for McCarrick and let you know "in due course."

I laugh when I think of it.

It is as if McCarrick had said:

I will investigate the charge that I abused seminarians and let you know "in due course.

Or if the the fake news Reuters and company had allowed Brett Kavanugh to say:

I will investigate the charge that I abused Ford and let you know "in due course."

I laugh every time I think of it.

On October 6, The Hill reported:

"Pope Francis authorized a 'thorough study' of Vatican archives into... McCarrick... According to the Vatican, the investigation's conclusions will be made public "in due course."
(The Hill, "Pope authorizes study of Vatican archives in McCarrick investigation," October 6, 2018)

Did the Vatican Gay Lobby cause Benedict's Resignation & Why is it that Francis "Reinvolved, Reinstated and Promoted" those who were "Oppos[ed] to Benedict XVI Theologically, but also on Administration"?

Pro-gay Italian journalist Emiliano Fittipaldi is one of two journalists charged in the Vatileaks 2 trial in the Vatican court for obtaining confidential Church papers. His sources in the Church apparently were the Vatican gay lobby or those who had intimate knowledge of the lobby:

“Ratzinger [Pope Benedict XVI]... was very traditionalist and conservative, and so the journalists did not like him, but he did important things. The things he did in relation to pedophilia, which was not much, but double the time for prescribing crimes in the Vatican, sent away almost 600 priests in a few years. The incredible thing is that Francis did a lot less."

"... The story of the gay lobby has... importance in the Vatileaks and the dismissal of Pope Ratzinger... He destroyed the careers of those who were with them. To stop this group, a group of supporters of Ratzinger began to issue a series of documents, which was called Vatileaks. The story of the gay lobby has... importance in the Vatileaks and the dismissal of Pope Ratzinger... He destroyed the careers of those who were with them. To stop this group, a group of supporters of Ratzinger began to issue a series of documents, which was called Vatileaks. I can say this shock, this war of [Vatileaks] documents led to the end of Ratzinger."

"... [T]hey [the gay lobby] are often composed of the most conservative men in the Church. It is a paradox, but it is so. Certainly the doctrine [against homosexuality] has not been changed because the conservative homosexual and heterosexual world is in the majority. Francis, from this point of view, is considered a heretic. In this I very much support the courage of Francis, a visionary courage, because if the Church does not change and does not open to the world, it risks entering into an irreversible crisis."

"... Ratzinger made... war against pedophilia... [h]e just started and resigned."
[https://www.comunidadeculturaearte.com/emiliano-fittipaldi-para-francisco-a-pedofilia-e-uma-questao-secundaria/]

What Fittipaldi appears to be saying is that Vatileaks which was about the Vatican financial scandal and the Vatican gay lobby are tied together as the twin causes that "led to the end of Ratzinger [Pope Benedict XVI]."

Vatican expert Dr. Taylor Marshall says that if Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano is telling the truth then Fittipaldi appears to be right.

On August 27, author and philosopher Marshall on YouTube in "Dr. Taylor Marshall ties together Vatican financial scandal with homosexual activity" summarized what led to Pope Benedict XVI's resignation and Pope Francis's papacy:

If Vigano is telling the truth then the Vatican gay lobby paired with the Vatileaks financial scandal apparently caused Pope Benedict XVI's resignation and it appears that Pope Francis has "reinstated and promoted" all those who brought about the resignation.

Marshall, on YouTube, summarized what led to Benedict's abdication:

"First of, Vigano blew the whistle on money laundering."

"Two, the accusations of money laundering leads to the Vatileaks scandal."

"Three, the Vatileaks scandal leads Benedict to form a secret investigation with three cardinals."

"Four, those three cardinals expose moral rot, sexual deviancy, that is paired up with financial irregularity."

"This is what moves the Pope to resignation
. And just to make sure there is enough pressure on him to do it and do it quick something funny goes on with the Vatican Bank beginning on January 1, 2013."

"And it seems the powerful cardinals within Vatican City wanted it to happen fast because they don't want the 300 page dossier released to the public because there is moral scandal in those pages."

"That binder was left with Pope Francis, but nothing has been done. And what we see is that those who were oppose to Benedict XVI theologically, but also on administration, have been reinvolved, reinstated and promoted."

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.

Why Didn't Democrats Call For An Investigation Into Barack's Confessed High School Crimes & Obama's College Gay Sexual Misconduct Accusations?

The website Freedom Outpost asked "Why Didn't Democrats Call For An Investigation Into Barack Obama's Confessed High School Crimes?:

"Obama has written about his drug use in his memoir, 'Dreams from My Father.'"

"'Junkie. Pothead. That's where I'd been headed: the final fatal role of the young would be black man,' Obama wrote. Mostly he smoked marijuana and drank alcohol, Obama wrote, but occasionally he would snort cocaine when he could afford it."

"Drugs, Obama wrote, were a way he 'could push questions of who I was out of my mind, something that could flatten out the landscape of my heart, blur the edges of my memory.'"

"It's also notable in that report that Obama claims that his interest was in basketball and girls."

"'I thought about girls a lot, I won't lie.'"

"Well, the claim of only "experimenting with drugs" and thinking a lot about girls seems to have been refuted by at least one high school friend who claimed he partook of cocaine and was a sodomite, and that he portrayed himself as a "foreigner."  To corroborate her story, it seems that Obama didn't abandon those practices as he grew older.  Just ask Larry Sinclair."
[https://freedomoutpost.com/why-didnt-democrats-call-for-an-investigation-into-barack-obamas-confessed-high-school-crimes/]

Also, back in in 2012, the national media and Gloria Allred launched a Kavanaugh-like media attack on Herman Cain for one woman accusing him of inappropriate sexual behavior.

At exactly the same time, the national media ignored two male student editors accusation of inappropriate sexual behavior by Obama as reported in the Kansas Citian.

It seems that two persons accusing a man of inappropriate sexual behavior is more credible than one person's accusation.

This cover-up of Obama's sexual misconduct by the media is hypocrisy.

Barack Obama accused by two men of inappropriate behavior

During Barack Obama’s tenure as the president of the Harvard Law Review in the late 1980s, at least two male student editors complained to colleagues and senior university officials about inappropriate behavior by Obama, ultimately leaving their positions at the journal, multiple sources confirm to THE KANSAS CITIAN.

The men complained of sexually suggestive behavior by Obama that made them angry and uncomfortable, the sources said, and they signed agreements with the university that gave them financial payouts to leave the journal. The agreements also included language that bars the men from talking about their departures.

In a series of comments over the past 10 days, Obama and his administration repeatedly declined to respond directly about whether he ever faced allegations of sexual harassment at the journal. They have also declined to address questions about specific reporting confirming that there were financial settlements in two cases in which men leveled complaints.

THE KANSAS CITIAN has confirmed the identities of the two male journal editors who complained about Obama but, for privacy concerns, is not publishing their names.

White House spokesman Jay Carney told THE KANSAS CITIAN the president indicated to White House staff that he was “vaguely familiar” with the charges and that the university’s general counsel had resolved the matter.

Obama was president of the Harvard Law Review from late-1988 to mid-1989. THE KANSAS CITIAN learned of the allegations against him, and over the course of several weeks, has put together accounts of what happened by talking to a lengthy roster of former university officials, current and past students and others familiar with the workings of the journal at the time Obama was there.

In one case, THE KANSAS CITIAN has seen documentation describing the allegations and showing that the university formally resolved the matter. Both men received separation packages that were in the five-figure range.

On the details of Obama’s allegedly inappropriate behavior with the two men, THE KANSAS CITIAN has a half-dozen sources shedding light on different aspects of the complaints.

The sources — including the recollections of close associates and other documentation — describe episodes that left the men upset and offended. These incidents include conversations allegedly filled with innuendo or personal questions of a sexually suggestive nature, taking place at hotels during conferences, at other officially sanctioned journal events and at the journal’s offices. There were also descriptions of physical gestures that were not overtly sexual but that made men who experienced or witnessed them uncomfortable and that they regarded as improper in a professional relationship.

The website The Obama Hustle summed up the Obama College abuse case:

"During Barack Obama’s tenure as the president of the Harvard Law Review in the late 1980s, at least two male student editors complained to colleagues and senior university officials about inappropriate behavior by Obama, ultimately leaving their positions at the journal, multiple sources confirm to THE KANSAS CITIAN.The men complained of sexually suggestive behavior by Obama that made them angry and uncomfortable, the sources said, and they signed agreements with the university that gave them financial payouts to leave the journal.

"UPDATE: Third man comes forward to AP."

"The AP:

"A third former editor says he considered filing a workplace complaint over what he considered aggressive and unwanted behavior by Barack Obama when he worked under the president in the 1991 at the University of Chicago. He says the behavior included a private invitation to his apartment."

"He worked for the University of Chicago when he was a Visiting Law and Government Fellow. He told The Associated Press that Obama made sexually suggestive remarks or gestures about the same time that the two editors of the Harvard Law Review had settled separate harassment complaints against him. The employee described situations in which he said Obama told him he had confided to colleagues how attractive he was and invited him to his apartment outside work. He spoke on condition of anonymity, saying he feared retaliation. The White House declined to comment."

Cardinal Müller Confirmed that Pope Francis "Stopped" Investigation against his Accused "Friend" Cd. Murphy-O'Connor's for Gang "Abuse" of Girl

On October 3, LifeSiteNews reported in the article "Cardinal Müller confirms sex abuse investigation against UK Cardinal was stopped" that "Cardinal Gerhard Müller has confirmed that the Vatican investigation into sexual abuse by Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor was not completed, but instead was stopped for lack of the Pope’s approval":

"The cardinal spoke with LifeSiteNews yesterday in Washington, D.C. while there to speak at the Napa Institute’s Conference on Authentic Catholic Reform."

LifeSiteNews asked Cardinal Müller if Pope Francis had indeed halted the investigation into Cardinal Murphy-O’Connor, who passed away in 2017. Müller was until recently the Prefect for the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF), the Vatican body tasked with investigating sex abuse cases. Cardinal Murphy-O’Connor was accused of abusing a girl when she was 13 or 14 during the 1960s.

Cardinal Müller told LifeSiteNews he was 'bound by Pontifical Secret,' but said that 'the Pope’s approval is required for investigations' of a Cardinal. LifeSiteNews informed Müller that some news reports were suggesting he had completed the investigation, rather than the investigation having been interrupted and prevented from continuing."

"LifeSiteNews asked the cardinal if he would at least go on the record to indicate that the investigation was stopped, rather than completed, and he agreed, 'yes.'"

On September 24, the website LifeSiteNews revealed Pope Francis blocked an investigation that his friend Cardinal Murphy-O'Connor was involved in a gang "abuse" of a girl "13 or 14 years of age.

The website reported the credible allegation that Pope Francis blocked an investigation of an abused woman who credibly accused a group of priests including Francis's friend Murphy-O'Connor and the pedophile priest Fr. Michael "Hill [of] abus[ing] her in the late 1960s, there were several other priests present and involved. She claims that Murphy-O'Connor was among them":

"Pope Francis told Cardinal Gerhard Müller in 2013 to stop investigating abuse allegations against British Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor, according to a highly-placed Vatican source who spoke to Marco Tossati. Murphy-O'Connor, as a member of the “Sankt [St.] Gallen mafia,” played a pivotal role in getting Jorge Bergoglio elected Pope in 2013."

"...The lady who accused Murphy-O'Connor himself of abuse, claims that when Hill abused her in the late 1960s, there were several other priests present and involved. She claims that Murphy-O'Connor was among them. She, who then lived in what is now the Diocese of Arundel and Brighton, had entered in the early 2000s into an agreement with the Diocese and received £40,000 payment for the abuse of Father Hill."

"... LifeSiteNews reached out to a reliable source from England who is very well informed about exactly that same lady who had been accusing the English cardinal. According to this English source, the lady has never gone public with her charges. But she has been in contact with Church authorities for about 15 years now, without ever having received a thorough investigation of her claims. This lady is already an acknowledged abuse victim, having received a settlement from the Archdiocese. She had been abused, when she was 13 or 14 years of age, by Father Michael Hill."

Francis's "friend" Murphy-O'Connor was not only "involved" in the credible allegation of the gang "abuse" of a girl "13 or 14 years of age," but helped elect his close friend the present pope:

"... As The Guardian puts it: 'A few months after his election, the former Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio was apparently lightheartedly to credit Murphy-O’Connor, when the two met at a papal audience. The pope pointed to his old friend and said, 'You’re to blame!'”

Murphy-O’Connor, it became clear, was an old friend of Bergoglio. As The Guardian's obituary states, Murphy-O'Connor called Pope Francis 'my man': 'And, of course, his [Murphy-O'Connor's] presence in Rome in 2013 [was in order] to witness the election of his friend as Pope Francis. He looked on in pleasure at the impact made by the Argentinian whom he liked, jokingly, to refer to as 'my man.''”

Is Pope Francis's Use of the Rosary "Sacrilegious"?

By James Larson


Pope Francis And the Sacrilegious Use of the Rosary


 It has been integral to the vision which inspired the Rosary to the Interior: For the Purification of the Church that the entire Church is in need of purification, and that the most visible aspects of the current crisis of the Church are like cancerous excrescences on the surface of the body, which point to a much deeper malady within. We see this sickness as stemming from two primary sources: the surrender of the intellectual foundations of our Faith (theology and philosophy) to reductive science; and, secondly, to our having nourished an adulterous relationship with this world which tends towards making us an “enemy of God” (James 4:4) and therefore fully deserving of God’s chastisement. In our prayer for the Church’s purification we have chosen therefore not to focus on obvious evils such as the Cardinal McCarrick scandal. We do not believe that any investigation into this scandal (although necessary), or any amount of “getting rid of bad bishops” (including the Pope), will solve the present crisis. This is why we seek Our Lady’s help in reaching to the depths of what is in need of purification within each one of us. As Simeon foretold to Mary “And thy own soul a sword shall pierce, that, out of many hearts, thoughts may be revealed.” (Luke 2: 35).

However, absolutely necessary for the integrity of our effort is that the Rosary itself be prayed with intentions which are in accord with the truths of Jesus Christ. The Rosary, being a sacramental, is subject to sacrilegious use. And this is precisely what is now being promoted by Pope Francis.

On September 29, 2018, the Press Office of the Holy See issued a Communiqué in which Pope Francis invited all the faithful during the Marian month of October to pray the Rosary, the Leonine prayer to St. Michael the Archangel, and the prayer Sub Tuum Praesidium to protect the Church from the devil, “who always seek to separate us from God and from each other.” Twice in this communiqué, we are asked to offer these prayers “against the Great Accuser who ‘goes around the world seeking to accuse”.

Pope Francis’ choice of the title “the Great Accuser” for the Devil is not random. It has evolved out of the catastrophic events which have occurred over a period ranging from the last part of August to the end of September, and has a very specific meaning and intention attached to it. We will here briefly describe these events:

On August 22, 2018, former Papal Nuncio to the United States Archbishop Viganò issued an eleven page “Testimony” accusing Pope Francis not only of covering up the McCarrick scandal, but of promoting McCarrick’s status in the Vatican and making him his trusted advisor. He also documented a “cabal” of higher members of the American hierarchy who bypassed the Papal Nuncio in order to recommend bishops friendly to Pope Francis and his “gay-inclusive” agenda. Since that date much of what was in Archbishop Vigano’s Testimony has been corroborated, and there are many bishops who have now called for a full investigation. In addition, there have come to light other instances of Francis’ protecting abusers while he has been Pope, and his defense of a serial abuser (and persecution of his victims) while Archbishop of Buenos Aires. When asked about these accusations, Pope Francis replied, “I will not say a single word about this”, and he has retained this position to this day. At the very least, these accusations demand a thorough and complete investigation.

But Pope Francis, while refusing to answer these accusations, has not remained silent. Beginning on September 11, he began a series of thinly veiled attacks on Archbishop Vigano (without specifically naming him), and others who are demanding a full investigation into these allegations, by equating their efforts with the work of the Devil – the “Great Accuser”.

On September 11, Pope Francis said, “in these times, it seems like the ‘Great Accuser’ has been unchained and is attacking bishops. True we are all sinners, we bishops. He tries to uncover the sins, so they are visible in order to scandalize the people. The ‘Great Accuser’, as he himself says to God in the first chapter of the Book of Job, ‘roams the earth looking for someone to accuse.’”

On September 13, he said: “Only the merciful are like God the Father. ‘Be merciful, as your Father is merciful.’ This is the path, the path that goes against the spirit of the world, that thinks differently, that does not accuse others. Because among us is the ‘Great Accuser,’ the one who is always going about to accuse us before God, to destroy. Satan: he is the ‘Great Accuser.’ And when I enter into this logic of accusing, of cursing, seeking to do evil to others, I enter into the logic of the ‘Great Accuser’ who is the ‘Destroyer,’ who does not know the word mercy, does not know, has never lived it.”

On September 14, he said: “Our victory is the cross of Jesus, victory over our enemy, the ancient serpent, the Great Accuser.… And the ancient serpent that was destroyed still barks, still threatens but, as the Fathers of the Church say, he is a chained dog: do not approach him and he will not bite you; but if you try to caress him because you attracted to him as if he were a puppy, prepare yourself, he will destroy you.”

On September 18, the Vatican News service offered the following summation from Pope Francis’ homily:

“The Pope brought up that it was also the people who yelled ‘crucify him’. Jesus then compassionately remained silent because ‘the people were deceived by the powerful’, Pope Francis explained. His response was silence and prayer. Here the shepherd chooses silence when the ‘Great Accuser’ accuses him ‘through so many people’. Jesus ‘suffers, offers his life, and prays’, Pope Francis said.”It is clear from all of this that Pope Francis has cast himself in the role of Christ who is silent before the “Great Accuser.” This is in itself blasphemous. Christ’s silence did not mask involvement in sexual abuse and its cover-up. He did not attack those who sought honest answers in regard to such heinous sins, nor did He claim that they were doing the work of the “Great Accuser”. He did not deny justice to the innocent who have been horrendously violated by such sins. Pope Francis’ “silence” in the face of what appear to be justified accusations is not therefore the silence of Christ in the face of the Great Accuser. It is rather the silence promoted by Satan in service to the Father of Lies.

To commit the sin of sacrilege is to “desecrate or steal a sacred person, place, or thing”. The Rosary is a sacramental (and the St. Michael the Angel Prayer and the Sub tuum are also holy things) which, if used with the intention to deceive or commit some evil, entails the commission of the sin of sacrilege. As documented above, this is precisely what Pope Francis is doing with his campaign to pray these prayers against the “Great Accuser”. His actions are especially grievous, because the Rosary is the designated means proposed by Our Lady for our own purification, the purification of the Church, and the conversion of all peoples.

We therefore completely reject this proposal of Pope Francis. Our rejection is obviously not a refusal to pray the Rosary, but rather the contrary. We ask all the faithful to pray every Rosary For the Purification of the Church in order that, in accord with the mission entrusted by God to Mary’s Immaculate and Pierced Heat, out of many hearts, thoughts may be revealed. We also ask all faithful Catholics to join us on February 2, 2019, Feast of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Presentation of Our Lord in the Temple, in order to unite in praying, not only for the purification of the whole Church, but also for the purification of the minds and hearts of each one of us.
————————————————————-

New Effort!  Please read the following:

It should have become obvious to every Catholic over the past few months that the crises (and they are many) now facing the Catholic Church can only be overcome through interior purification, and that all of our efforts to overcome the evils “out there” (abortion, secularism, terrorism, etc.) are bound to prove ineffective unless they are preceded by the prayer and penance needed to effect such interior purification. Without such purification, it is impossible that the Church, which was sent forth by Christ for the conversion of nations, can come once again to possess the power and grace necessary to carry out this mission.

On February 2, 2019, the double Feast of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Presentation of Our Lord in the Temple, there will occur the Second Annual Rosary to the Interior: For the Purification of the Church. We ask all Catholic faithful to join us in this effort by asking their parish priests to implement this event in their local parishes. There are links on this page to the Original Proposal (which explains the purpose and logic of this Rosary to the Interior)), a sample letter that may be sent to priests, and a suggested Holy Hour.

We are also beginning a new phase to this effort, which will enable each person who sees the value of the Rosary to the Interior: For the Purification of the Church to become a full participant in its success. In the Menu can be found a link titled “Handout”, which contains a one-page explanation and promotion of this event, and which can be copied and distributed in all Catholic venues: Catholic churches, Rosary Marches, Adoration Chapels, Catholic Conferences, etc. We hope and pray that all Catholics who are concerned about the current state of the Church, and especially parents who are deeply concerned about their children and the future of their Church, will see the necessity of personally engaging in this work. Please contact us if you have any questions.

Is Media Complicit in Covering-up Credible Allegations that Pope Francis Covered-up for his Accused "Friend" Cd. Murphy-O'Connor's Gang "Abuse" of Girl?

With the hysterical coverage of the so-called Kavanugh/Ford abuse case, why is the mainstream media complicit in covering-up credible allegations that Pope Francis blocked an investigation that his friend Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor was involved in a gang "abuse" of a girl "13 or 14 years of age"?

On September 24, LifeSiteNews reported the credible allegation that Pope Francis blocked an investigation of an abused woman who credibly accused a group of priests including Francis's friend Murphy-O'Connor and the pedophile priest Fr. Michael "Hill [of] abus[ing] her in the late 1960s, there were several other priests present and involved. She claims that Murphy-O'Connor was among them":

"Pope Francis told Cardinal Gerhard Müller in 2013 to stop investigating abuse allegations against British Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor, according to a highly-placed Vatican source who spoke to Marco Tossati. Murphy-O'Connor, as a member of the “Sankt [St.] Gallen mafia,” played a pivotal role in getting Jorge Bergoglio elected Pope in 2013."

"...The lady who accused Murphy-O'Connor himself of abuse, claims that when Hill abused her in the late 1960s, there were several other priests present and involved. She claims that Murphy-O'Connor was among them. She, who then lived in what is now the Diocese of Arundel and Brighton, had entered in the early 2000s into an agreement with the Diocese and received £40,000 payment for the abuse of Father Hill."

The website The Eponymous Flower summed up the Francis cover-up:

"Marco Tosatti, together with the Canadian news website LifeSiteNews, now raises serious allegations against Pope Francis. His gratitude to his great election victory went so far as to stop investigations by the Congregation of the Faith against Murphy-O'Connor. Tosatti refers to a 'Vatican source', which he describes as a 'prominent former figure of the Roman Curia.'”

"The incident took place in June 2013, three months after the election of Pope Francis. The Prefect of the Faith, Gerhard Müller, was celebrating Mass with a group of German students when his secretary came to him and whispered in his ear that Pope Francis wanted to speak to him immediately. The Pope does not care if he is celebrating. He wanted to talk to him right now. In the sacristy, the Prefect of Faith met a "frustrated" Francis. He gave him the unequivocal order to immediately stop the initial proceedings against a friend of the pope."

"The 'Friend of the Pope,' Tosatti said, was no lesser than Cardinal Murphy-O-Connor. There was an investigation against the former Archbishop of Westminister from the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, of situation reported by a woman claiming to have been abused by a priest at the age of 13/14. For fifteen years she had tried in vain to draw attention to her case without being heard by the competent authorities. The highest competent body was Cardinal Murphy-O-Connor. Finally, she turned directly to the Congregation of the Faith in Rome."

Francis's "friend" Murphy-O'Connor was not only "involved" in the credible allegation of the gang "abuse" of a girl "13 or 14 years of age," but covered-up for the pedophile Hill and helped elect his close friend the present pope:

"LifeSiteNews reached out to a reliable source from England who is very well informed about exactly that same lady who had been accusing the English cardinal. According to this English source, the lady has never gone public with her charges. But she has been in contact with Church authorities for about 15 years now, without ever having received a thorough investigation of her claims. This lady is already an acknowledged abuse victim, having received a settlement from the Archdiocese. She had been abused, when she was 13 or 14 years of age, by Father Michael Hill."

"The pedophile Father Hill was imprisoned for five years in 2002 for abusing three minor children between 10 and 14. He had previously been imprisoned, in 1997, also for abusing children. He is thought to have attacked about 30 boys between his ordination in 1960 and the late 1980s. As The Guardian put it at the time: “His case is particularly notorious because the church's leader, Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor, gave him a post despite warnings that he had abused young boys.” Hill had been moved to different parishes, in spite of the ongoing complaints of parents. Finally he underwent therapy in the 1980s."

"Murphy-O'Connor, then bishop of the Diocese of Arundel and Brighton, had appointed Hill in 1985 and made him chaplain at Gatwick Airport. Hill then was charged with abusing a teenager with learning difficulties who had missed a flight and was visiting the airport's chapel."

'As later reports showed, Murphy-O'Connor had been warned by therapists that Hill would be abusive again. Murphy-O'Connor accepted that the diocese should pay compensation to those victims of Hill, but requested their silence on the matter of their abuse. Murphy-O'Connor had also been accused of trying to pay hush money to Father Hill – some £50,000 to buy his silence when he was released from prison. Murphy-O'Connor “utterly” denied that claim. It was said that a junior bishop made the offer on his behalf during a visit to Hill's Belmarsh prison in London."

"... As The Guardian puts it: 'A few months after his election, the former Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio was apparently lightheartedly to credit Murphy-O’Connor, when the two met at a papal audience. The pope pointed to his old friend and said, 'You’re to blame!'”

Murphy-O’Connor, it became clear, was an old friend of Bergoglio. As The Guardian's obituary states, Murphy-O'Connor called Pope Francis 'my man': 'And, of course, his [Murphy-O'Connor's] presence in Rome in 2013 [was in order] to witness the election of his friend as Pope Francis. He looked on in pleasure at the impact made by the Argentinian whom he liked, jokingly, to refer to as 'my man.''”
