For more information on this, Louie Verrecchio has an excellent contribution in his latest article for Renew America, Money, Sex and Modernism. After making the case that the real point of the SWIFT intervention to shut down the IOR (Vatican Bank) was the resignation of Pope Benedict, Verrecchio asks,
“The question remains, if not exclusively to protect the interests of those who profited from the Vatican Bank’s lack of transparency, what exactly was the primary motivation for those who wished to see Pope Benedict XVI removed?
“The general answer, it seems, was to promote doctrinal and liturgical liberalism, but the more specific and far more relevant answer can be summed up in a word: homosexuality.”
Verrecchio continues to build his case, stating of Pope Benedict’s successor, the beneficiary of Cardinal Danneel’s largesse,
“Pope Francis, for his part, in his first major act in the reform of the IOR on his watch named a notorious homosexual cleric, Monsignor Battista Ricca, as the prelate-liaison between the Vatican Bank Board of Directors and its Commission of Cardinals.”
“As Maurizio Blondet wrote, “the underlying reasons” for the events that led to the abdication of Pope Benedict XVI are not clear, but what does seem clear enough is that money, sex and modernism are somewhere in the mix.”
In all this sleaze, you see exactly what St. John revealed,
“For all that is in the world, is the concupiscence of the flesh, and the concupiscence of the eyes, and the pride of life, which is not of the Father, but is of the world.”(I John, 2, 16) That is to say, homosexual lust, greed for money and arrogant heresy (modernism, or the religion of man).
Addendum: Rorate has just posted another of the almost-daily bombshells under this apocalyptic papacy: Please see here, BOMBSHELL – SECRET PARALLEL SYNOD: Papal Post-Synod Document ALREADY being drafted by Jesuit group to allow communion for divorced and other aberrations. It is yet another piece of evidence that the largely homosexualized Jesuits are in the forefront of the attempt to totally corrupt the Mystical Body of Christ. Homosexuality and modernism are almost inseparable.
We know the remedy! Remember, pray the Rosary and confound satan and his minions!
St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.
