It appears that Francis and the Gay Lobby are Victorious over Sodano's Old Guard

It seems that the alliance of the Gay Lobby and the Old Guard that apparently was involved with the engineering of the election of Francis is breaking up and the allies are now at war.

Francis appears to run the Gay Lobby while Cardinal Angelo Sodano apparently is the head of the Old Guard.

First we'll explain who Sodano is and then show why he might be at war with Francis and the Gay Lobby?

Cardinal Sodano is the boss of the Vatican Old Guard diplomats and Cardinal Pietro Parolin has been called his "longtime protegee":

In 2015, Vatican expert Jerry Slevin explained that Francis has put Sodano back in power by putting his "longtime protégée,  [Cardinal]Pietro Parolin.... [as] No. 2 as Secretary of State, and... likely... the next pope": 

"Sodano at times was “de facto” pope during John Paul II’s incapacity. He is still Dean of Cardinals and oversaw the election of Pope Francis. His longtime protégée,  Pietro Parolin, is now No. 2 as Secretary of State, and will likely be the next pope."

"... Just before Francis’ election, Jason Berry, a “non-brainwashed” Jesuit educated award winning investigative reporter, in the NY Times urged Pope Benedict XVI to right some of the wrongs of the recent past by forcing out Cardinal Sodano, in Berry’s words, as '… the man who, more than any other, embodies the misuse of power that has corrupted the church hierarchy. …'. Please see, here, 
New York Times ." [http://www.bishop-accountability.org/news2015/03_04/2015_03_29_Jerry_Catholicism_Does_It.htm]
 (BishopAccountability.org, "Does Sodano Dominate Pope Francis? Or Does it just Seem So?", March 29, 2015)



Moreover, Dr. Kevin Barrett, a Ph.D. Arabist-Islamologist, is one of America’s best-known critics of the War on Terror, but on



"But Sodano (and his forces) survived and at the Conclave of 2013, because of being dean of the College of the Cardinals, his duties included moderating the pre-Conclave discussions and presiding at the pre-Conclave Mass. It is widely conceded that once the voting got underway he had convinced a number of other cardinals to cast their ballots for Jorge Mario Bergoglio SJ, the man who is now Pope Francis."

"It is not clear if Sodano delivered the determining votes for the Argentine pope’s election, but those tallies were essential nonetheless. And Francis was and remains well aware of that."

"He began his pontificate with full knowledge that Sodano still had considerable reach and influence over much that was happening in ecclesiastical Rome. He also had personal experience of the former Secretary of State’s steely will to promote and to punish, especially in the pope’s native Latin America where, at least since the 1970s, policy decisions and bishop appointments were rarely made without the Italian diplomat’s input."[https://international.la-croix.com/news/twilight-time-for-the-vatican-s-godfather/7013]  







"An additional source also told CNA that McCarrick had young priest and seminarian assistants while living with the IVE, but did not comment on whether any seminarian resided with the cardinal."[https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.catholicnewsagency.com/amp/news/cardinal-mccarrick-reportedly-lived-on-ive-seminary-property-during-retirement-86896#ampshare=https://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/cardinal-mccarrick-reportedly-lived-on-ive-seminary-property-during-retirement-86896]

It is obvious that Sodano at the time had power over Francis.

According to Gloria.tv, it now appears that Francis finally feels he has enough power to get rid of the Sodano who caused him a “great humiliation” and a “slap in the face”:

"December 13 was the day of Francis’ fiftieth priestly anniversary."

"Weeks before, Cardinal Angelo Sodano, 92, as the Dean of the College of Cardinals, suggested to Francis to celebrate this day with a Mass together with the cardinals residing in Rome, writes Sandro Magister (December 21)."

"But Francis said no."

"Sodano didn’t give up. He sent the sub-dean Cardinal Re, 85, and Francis agreed."

"However, the Mass took place in total secrecy. The Vatican regime media published no news and no photos. Magister writes that this was on Francis' strict order."

"The usually loquacious Francis didn’t preach, nor did he say a word before or after Mass. Sodano wasn’t allowed to wish him well. The address was only published in the after-noon."

"After the Mass, Francis quickly and coldly greeted the cardinals one by one and ran off."


"Eight days later, on December 21, Francis published a Motu proprio sacking Sodano as the Dean of the Cardinals."
The evidence appears to show that Sodano's Old Guard didn't appreciate being sidelined by Pope Benedict and they as well as the Gay Lobby initiated Vatileaks and other unsavory maneuvers to get the pope to resign. The Old Guard in my opinion have pretty much controlled Francis until recently, but it looks like he recently thinks he has enough power to take them on.

Even before the sacking of  Sodano, his Old Guard recently apparently has been systematically defeated by Francis and the Vatican Gay Lobby.

The Old Guard Vatican diplomats whose top official is Sercetary of State Cardinal Pietro Parolin was "attack[ed]" and "is being targeted" by the Vatican Bank (IOR) which is headed by the Francis appointed Gay Lobby Monsignor Battista Ricca according to Italian news outlet Ilmerraggero.
(Ilmessaggero.it, "Vatican, IOR attacks the Secretariat of State: alleged financial irregularities," October 2, 2019)

The Ilmessaggero article reported Parolin's Secretariat of State offices were broken into by Vatican police with the apparent approval of Francis:

"[I]n the offices of the Secretariat of State... the Vatican judicial police officers broke in for a reconnaissance that led to the seizure of documents and computers."

Gloria.tv revealed:

"The Italian daily Ilmessaggero.it has presented the Vatican's recent financial scandal as a 'clash of power' between the Vatican Bank and the Secretary of State."
(Gloria.tv, "Vatican Scandal: Now the Accused Speaks," October 6, 2019)

Moreover, Gloria.tv reported the Francis Vatican raid was a sneak attack:

"Secretary of State Piero Parolin, was unaware of the problems leading to the suspension of five high-placed collaborators in his own dicastery."

"According to Corriere.it (October 3), Parolin was informed by Francis only a few hours before the raid in the Secretariat of State took place."
(Gloria.tv, "No Dialogue: Parolin Informed in Last Minute," October 4, 2019)

Furthermore, Vatican expert Andrea Gagliarducci says the Francis Gay Lobby takeover of Parolin's Old Guard Secretary of State is long planned including putting Gay Lobby Archbishop Edgar Pena Parra as the second in command behind Parolin at the Secretariat.

Parra is deeply connected to Francis's closest collaborator pro-gay Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga and his alleged gay predator ex-auxiliary Bishop Juan Jose Pineda who was forced to resign.

In August, Gagliarducci reported the Francis Gay Lobby takeover of the Old Guard's last strong hold at the Vatican:

"Pope Francis is setting up his team in the Secretariat of State. This new team will have no connection with the old guard."
(Mondayvatican.com, "Pope Francis, how the transition is taking place," August 5, 2019)

Moreover, Gagliarducci says the  "attack" on the Old Guard is "unprecedented" in the history of the Vatican:

"[W]hy should an entity under the oversight, namely the Institute for Religious Works [the Vatican Bank], report on other bodies that oversee it... the Secretariat of State?"

"... Possible answer is that the green light came directly by the Pope to the prosecutor..."

"The attack to the Institution from within the Institution is unprecedented for the Holy See. It shows the extent of the internal struggle."
(Mondayvatican.com, "Pope Francis, what is happening in the Vatican?," October 7, 2019)

It appears that Francis and the Gay Lobby are victorious over Sodano's Old Guard.

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church as well as the Triumph of the Kingdom of the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ and the Immaculate Heart of the Mary.

O Emmanuel (O God with Us)

Indeed. Great work Mr. Martinez. Thank you.

It is looking more and more to be the case that Benedict resigned to the extent of giving up the power in order to flush both groups—Bergoglio’s party and the Sodano-Parolin diplomatic corps—out of the woodwork, and preserve by retaining the Papacy. Whether this was prudent only God knows.

Both groups—though distinct, this distinction being important as you note because so relevant to the infighting—are two legs of the greater Homosexual Network Strangling the Church. Bergoglio’s party is just more explicit about it, while McCarrick was able to play the perfect open-Secret clerical sodomite, and a linchpin between the two.

Archbishop Viganò meanwhile is coming much closer to recognizing and declaring Bergoglio an Antipope. “Pope Bergoglio” as he consistently calls him is hardly a term of endearment or respect, and in his current broadside he studiously declines to call Bergoglio “Francis.”

He has in fact implicitly declared Bergoglio a false pope, which necessarily follows from his charge that ‘pope’ Bergoglio teaches a false magisterium. (And that with full malice: with the very aim of murdering Holy Mother Church.)

As others, notably Mark Docherty, have pointed out—how could a true pope teach, have and hold a false magisterium.

So we await the Archbishop’s clarion call declaring Bergoglio Antipope. And in the meantime I guess we dumb sheep have gotta do it ourselves.

Practically speaking, two thoughts occur to me in addition to stating and holding to the simple truth of Bergoglio being a false and anti pope. These are—

First: The Rosary The Rosary The Rosary.

Particularly the Rosary to the Interior for Candlemas. Intention: The Purification of the Church and ourselves.

Secondly, the Rosary again. The Pompeiian 54-Day Novena for the (swift) deposition of Antipope Francis, and for the Interior intention: The Purification of the Church and ourselves.

Meanwhile savor the last days of Advent, and preparation for the coming of our King of Light born in a stable! Gaude te!

Christus est natus ex Maria Virgine—Gaudete!

Your report implies another possible line of investigation. Did Sodano go alone or announce a papal resignation, knowing it was invalid, so that thereby he would have grounds to extort Bregoglio to remain in power. Bergoglio removed Sodano just as the wave of Benedict is still Pope because of Substantial error, broke in Rome, with the distribution of thousands of copies of pro Benedict printed materials to the Roman Curia and seminarians and clergy of the City. Because with the cat out of the bag, as it were, there was no more leverage Sodano could use?

Very probable. But, God's providence may use Sodano and all his collaborators against Francis before this is all over. If you are familiar with the The Lord of the Rings remember the evil and desperate Gollum helped destroy the evil kingdom despite his evil intentions. The power mad Sodano must now be desperate and Bergoglio now may have two fronts to fight. Br. Bugnolo keep up your courageous work. You are in my prayers.

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.
