Benedict says Pope Francis is "Profound" Philosopher, has X-Ray Vision & can Leap Tall Buildings in a Single Bound

The silliness of the Francis papacy has reached a new level.

The 90-year old Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI who in his last photo on October 2017 had a black eye (google the photo and do a close up of his face) and looked so feeble he appeared near death has according to the Vatican news agency just read 11 books by Francis as well as wrote a letter saying "Pope Francis is a man with profound philosophical and theological formation."

If Benedict did by some miracle read the 11 books and wrote the letter then he either has dementia or has lost his mind.

Vatican news agency please send a camera crew in so we can see the new Benedict who in just a few months is a new man full of gusto who can read 11 books of Francis's new found profound clarity of prose as well as profundity in theology and philosophy.

Let us see the full of gusto Benedict tell us before a camera about the new found profoundness of the present Pope.

Do a internet search of anyone and everyone who has read Francis's writings including those of his greatest admirers and you will not find a single writer that says he is a profound philosopher or theologian.

Even Pope Francis's favorite theologians such as Michel de Certeau or Gaston Fessard are second rate thinkers at best. I know because I have written articles on both of them.

Let's take the silliness to the next level.

Benedict wrote a letter saying Francis has x-ray vision and can leap tall buildings in single bound.

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

Update on March 13, 2017:

Today, the Vatican admitted that Benedict didn't read the eleven books and failed to explain why it didn't publish "the full text of the letter at yesterday's presentation" according to the National Catholic Register.

Also, the Vatican failed to respond to Fr. Z and others who say the letter doesn't sound like Benedict or to the question from the Register "for clarification of the letter and to explain what 'inner continuity' means."

In my opinion, Benedict is playing a subtle game of irony.
We know that his comment about the "Chuch on the verge of capsizing" in his farewell letter for Card. Meisner's funerals was immediately followed by some harsh retaliation revelations in the media about his brother Fr Ratzinger's past with chidren.
Benedict was in close contact with Meisner, one of the four "dubbia cardinals" since he talked with him the day before he died.
Can anyone imagine for only one second which could be the heart of these talks if not about Francis and the horrible crisis the Church is currently undergoing?

Dr. Marshall, for many of us (myself included), your podcasts have been a source of enlightenment, entertainment, and—quite frankly—hope, during this very dark time in the history of the Church.  As someone who studied his way into the Catholic Faith, having the grace and the integrity to acknowledge the necessity of conversion from the Protestant sect to which you formerly belonged, you have not been content to rest on your laurels but have “put yourself out there,” launching the New Saint Thomas Institute and discussing current events sub luce aeternitatis.  Your willingness to deal with things the way they are, and not the way they would be if we were all painted on holy cards already, is refreshing and appreciated.
Accordingly, I am writing to you today in regard to your recent statements about being “open” to the idea that Jorge Bergoglio is not actually the pope.  For a person in your position, so much as admitting that possibility must require all the grace and integrity you h…

Our Lady of Good Success: Is Pope Benedict the "Prisoner in the Vatican... in that Greatest Crisis of the Church"?

The apparitions of Our Lady of Success have been approved by the Catholic Church. Moreover, Our Lady of Good Success has had many miracles associated with it.

Here is part of the "Fourth Apparition: January 21, 1610" which the influencial and prominent Catholic blogger Laramie Hirsch believes may possibly be referring to Pope Benedict XVI:

"The Supreme Shepherd and Vicar of Christ on Earth, who, being a prisoner in the Vatican... in that greatest crisis of the Church, he who is obligated to speak in due time will remain silent."

Sex-abuse Worldview Vs. Christian Worldview

By Fred Martinez

Professor Allan Bloom, a philosopher who wrote "The Closing of the American Mind," thought that Friedrich Nietzsche was the father of modern America. He said, "Words such as 'charisma,' 'lifestyle,' 'commitment,' 'identity,' and many others, all of which can easily be traced to Nietzsche ... are now practically American slang."

But the most important Nietzschean slang word is "values."

"Values" are the death of Christian morality because values simply mean opinions. If opinion is how things are decided, then might makes right.

One must remember that whenever someone talks about values in modern America – family values or religious values or place-the-blank-in-front-of values – they are saying there is no real or objective right or wrong – only opinions of the self and its will to power.

Nietzsche's philosophy is summed up by Bloom as

Commitment values the values and makes them valuable. Not love…
