Behind the Scenes War between Pope Francis and Cdl. Parolin?

Is there a behind the scenes war between Pope Francis and Cardinal Pietro Parolin?

-As Vatican expert Sandro Magister reported on May 20, Francis did not follow Parolin's Vatican Secretariat of State script or text against the Venezuelan regime provided for the press.

-The Spectator in December said that "some Catholic observers are speculating" it was Parolin's  "forces inside the Secretariat of State" who leaked the scandal reports on Francis's close collaborator Vice-Pope Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga.

-Gloria.tv says " the second man in the Vatican Secretariat of State" Archbishop Giovanni Angelo Becciu "a blind follower of Francis" is rumoured to be in "conflict with his boss... Parolin" is in order to be made cardinal to "be removed."

-Why was the close collaborator, personal theologian and reportedly the writer of most of Francis's major Pontifical documents, Archbishop Victor Manuel Fernandez, suddenly promoted to a major diocese in Argentina and removed from the face to face intimate informal inner circle of the Pope in the Vatican which is the way Francis reportedly makes most of his decisions?

-According to Vatican expert Ed Condon the "inner circle's monopoly is strengthened by Francis's impatience with long meetings. He prefers brief personal chats and informal briefings." ( Catholic Herald, "Five years on: the paradox of Francis's papacy," March 8, 2017)

-According to a Gloria.tv headline in a February podcast from the Spectator Canon lawyer and Vatican expert Condon revealed "Parolin's Campaign to be Pope Desperate after China Fiasco."

-Parolin who apparently controls the Vatican communications apparatus it appears had a statement issued that said Francis stands behind his China disaster while the Pope told Chinese hero Cardinal Joseph Zen another narrative counter to the statement and has never personally confirmed the Vatican statement.

-Zen has rebuked Parolin calling him a "man of little faith" and Francis has not come to the Secretariat of State's defense.

-According to en.news and Choosing-him.blogspot Vatican expert Condon in the Spectator podcast "refers to Parolin's" failure of Francis's "Apostlic Journey to Chile" which is the biggest public relations disaster of the papacy which at least one commentator has said smelled like a booby trap.

Francis probably is not too happy with Parolin over the Chile disaster, as spoken about by Condon, whether it was a trap or not set by the Secretariat of State who is reported to have the ambition to be the next pope.

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

OPEN LETTER TO TAYLOR MARSHALL

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…

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…

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."
(The Story of Our Lady of Good Success and Novena, Dolorosa Press, Pages 40-41)

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