Satanist Pike, Anti-Pope & Anti-Christ
Is Bergoglio an Anti-Pope?
I have enjoyed your website with its erudite commentary and faithful support of Catholic tradition for years. Keep up the good work.
Question: There is an article recently published in sfero (Social italiano) titled, Benedict XVI signaled the impeded see by his resignation at the Roman “hora vicesima” – “the twentieth hour”. The article asserts that the late Pope Benedict was coerced by the Cardinals, but he pulled a fast one and resigned only the administrative responsibilities as Bishop of Rome. And isn't that what the anti-pope Bergoglio calls himself?
The article claims Pope Benedict XVI never abdicated and remained the only pope until the end of his life: He renounced the ministerium, the exercise of power, ironically just as Benedict VIII did – exactly 1000 years earlier in 1013.
The article is by Andrea Cionci, and appears somewhat compelling providing a clear roadmap in the historical subterfuge by traitorous co-religious to remove, even murder the true Pope in office. I also recall the he had asked for prayers at the start of his pontificate to protect him from the “wolves” who were out to get him.
So is the "Moose on the table"? Is the Church "Sede Vacant"?
I realize that the Church has had numerous anti-popes; the question begs itself: Should we now await for a proper enclave to elect a new, legitimate pope? I wonder. Is this an “Interregnum” or is the present situation an all out “Sede Vacant” situation? What makes matters worse are all the Cardinals who are cronies of Bergoglio. Catholic prophecies talk about a pope who will be forced to leave Rome and die a cruel death in exile. I do not think that is Bergoglio.
Thank you for your kind words and for your question.
It should be enough to clarify your doubts to state the following points:
- We do not give credit to the theory which imagines that Benedict XVI was coerced to abdicate by a group of Cardinals. He himself denied this possibility several times. His secretary, Arch. Georg Ganswein, who knew him quite well, also
has denied it.
- In order to continue to sustain this theory after Benedict XVI's formal denial, one must imagine that he was also obliged to deny it later. Now then, this is tantamount to admitting that either he lost his mental faculties, that is, he did not know what he was talking when he denied the coercion, or to imagine that those Cardinals continued to exercise that same pressure over him until he died. If this last possibility were accepted, then any document he wrote after his abdication and any verbal declaration he made should also be denied for the same reason. Since he had many opportunities to let other persons know about this supposed pressure and never did, this hypothesis lacks common sense.
- Besides, on this topic the motto applies: Quod gratis asseritur, gratis negatur, "what is freely asserted is freely dismissed," or paraphrased, "What is asserted without
evidence can be dismissed without evidence."
- We also do not give credit to the theory that pretends Pope Francis was not duly elected while Pope Benedict XVI was. Both Popes were elected by the College of Cardinals obeying the same rules established for the Papal Election.
- We do not think the Seat of Peter is vacant. We sustain that since the death of Pius XII it has been usurped by partisans of Progressivism.
- We do not consider Pope Francis as an anti-pope. However, he may be an Anti-Christ, to use the words of Our Lady of La Salette: “Rome will become the seat of the Anti-Christ.”

Ave Maria Purissima!
Four little workers doing their chores in an orphanage in Australia. Polishing rags would be tied to their wrists and ankles and they would either go in line, up and down the room as here, or they would be spread across the room in one line. They preferred this work to the schoolroom.
When Sister would come to my schoolroom to seek volunteers for kitchen duty or general chores or laundry duty there would be no shortage of hands raised. This class of girls has not the aptitude for more academic pursuits. They prefer the vocational training.
Millions of children around the world work. Poor families depend on their work. In India and Asia, families will get loans from wealthy families and give them their daughter for domestic work, to pay off the loan. The poor family receives the loan plus has one less mouth to feed. Now the United Nations is trying to force academic education on all children in poor countries, in the mistaken belief it will help to end poverty. The opposite is true. Allowing children to work helps to reduce poverty. Children will work for less than adults so they are more attractive to employers. Their work in carpet making, sewing, textiles is superior to adults as their little fingers are more nimble. They are also of course obedient workers and employers have no trouble with trade unions. As always an organic development in any society is preferable to a development model which is imposed.
I always found children to be hard working if supervised closely. We used them to make lace, assemble Rosary Beads, sew and mend their uniforms and older children were even able to make the leather ankle boots they wore in the industrial school. Although they were disciplined for laziness or poor workmanship, they were less likely to be punished in the workroom than in the schoolroom. Needless to say that was a big incentive for them to work.
At age eleven, our girls took on extra responsibilities which meant they had to rise an hour earlier. This work included washing and dressing the infants in the nursery. Bringing in turf (peat) for the boilers. Preparing breakfast in the kitchen. Working on the farm collecting the eggs and cleaning the outhouses and polishing and cleaning duties in the convent. Between work and school and their religious duties they had literally not a minute spare time during the day and went to sleep the moment their head hit the pillow. This was a great blessing as their purity throughout the night was assured.
God bless you all at TIA.
