The Mysterious Necessity of the Mystery of Iniquity

It would seem that we have not yet exhausted the implications of Pope Benedict XVI’s abdication. Sandro Magister has picked up on an aspect that has tended to be overlooked.  In Tuesday’s article (here) he notes the significance of Archbishop Gänswein’s comments of May 20.

Benedict XVi Resigns and Lightning strikes, Feb. 11, 2013.
Benedict XVi Resigns and Lightning strikes, Feb. 11, 2013.

Gänswein – with the weight of one who is in the most intimate contact with the “pope emeritus” in that he is his secretary – had said that Joseph Ratzinger “has by no means abandoned the office of Peter,” but on the contrary has made it “an expanded ministry, with an active member and a contemplative member,” in “a collegial and synodal dimension, almost a shared ministry.” …

“As of February 11, 2013, the papal ministry is no longer what it was before. It is and remains the foundation of the Catholic Church; and nonetheless it is a foundation that Benedict XVI has profoundly and lastingly transformed in his pontificate of exception (Ausnahmepontifikat).”

The formula, emphasized by Gänswein with the use of the German word, is not accidental. It contains a transparent reference to the “state of exception” theorized by one of the greatest and most talked-about political philosophers of the twentieth century, Carl Schmitt (1888-1985).

According to this theory, a “state of exception” is the dramatic hour of history in which the ordinary rules are suspended and the sovereign imposes new rules on his own. …

A word to the wise. Where Gänswein, citing the book by Regoli, refers to the “group of St. Gallen” and its role in the conclaves of 2005 and 2013, the reference is to the cardinals who used to gather periodically in the Swiss city of St. Gallen and who first opposed to the election of Ratzinger and then supported the election of Bergoglio.

The group included the cardinals Carlo Maria Martini, Basil Hume, Cormac Murphy-O’Connor, Achille Silvestrini, Karl Lehmann, Walter Kasper, and Godfried Danneels, the last two of these being particularly dear to Pope Francis, in spite of the fact that Danneels was proven to have attempted in 2010 a cover-up of the sexual offenses of the then-bishop of Bruges, Roger Vangheluwe, against his young nephew. (end quote Magister)

The above remarks are merely a preface to introduce an analysis by Guido Ferro Canale, which Magister then offered.

The Figure of a Woman, anticipating 2017

 

St. Hildegard’s Vision of the Five Beasts includes another vision, that which she refers to as, “The Figure of a Woman”. This is the strange figure in the woodcut below:
https://www.returntofatima.org
From Vision Eleven, Scivias, The Figure of a Woman.

 

And I saw again the figure of a woman whom I had previously seen in front of the altar that stands before the Eyes of God; she stood in the same place, but now I saw her from the waist down. And from her waist to the place that denotes the female, she had various scaly blemishes; and in that latter place was a black and monstrous head. It had fiery eyes and ears like an ass’ and its nostrils and mouth were like a lion’s; it opened wide its jowls and terribly clashed its horrible iron-colored teeth. And from its head down to her knees, the figure was white and red, as if bruised by many beatings; and from her knees to her tendons where they joined her heels, which appeared white, she was covered with blood.

And behold! That monstrous head moved from its place with such a great shock that the figure of the woman was shaken through all her limbs. And a great mass of excrement adhered to the head; and it raised itself up upon a mountain and tried to ascend the height of Heaven. And behold, there came suddenly a thunderbolt, which struck that head with such great force that it fell from the mountain and yielded up its spirit in death. And a reeking cloud enveloped the whole mountain, which wrapped the head in such filth that the people who stood by were thrown into the greatest terror. And that cloud remained around the mountain for a while longer.

The people who stood there, perceiving this, were shaken with great fear, and said to one another: “Alas, alas! What is this? What do you think this was? Alas, wretches that we are! Who will help us, and who will deliver us? For we know not how we were deceived. O Almighty God, have mercy on us! Let us return; let us hasten to the covenant of Christ’s Gospel; for ah, ah, ah! We have been bitterly deceived! And lo, the feet of the figure of the woman glowed white, shining with a splendor greater than the sun’s.

The Destroyer Pope

A reader , Terry McCarthy, remarked on our last post,

“Regarding the current pontiff, I see the purpose of his almost daily heretical pronouncements as a way to destroy the concept of papal infallibility, and along with it, the immutability of doctrine. The fact that most Catholics do not seem to be much concerned about his heresies shows that they probably have already lost faith in the Church’s unchanging doctrine and are heretics themselves. The pope will soon be declared just another fallible church leader like the Anglicans’ Archbishop of Canterbury and all his declarations will be considered mere personal opinions subject to challenge by the “faithful”. Without the umbrella of infallibility, there is no genuine Vicar of Christ to unify the Church, thus Father Martin’s prophecy of the scattering of the sheep will be fulfilled.”

“…not a true pastor, but a destroyer.”

We wholeheartedly agree. This pope is the “destroyer pope” of prophecy. John Vennari has an excellent column on the demonic words and actions of Pope Francis, see here. And we have, in many previous posts, discussed the prophecies, both scriptural and from approved private revelations which foretell of just such a time as this. Just search on he category, Catholic prophecy in our search bar on the right side.

In fact, earlier this year, we covered a bit of it in our post, “The Judas Complex and Pope Francis”, where we remarked on this apostate pope’s “homily” wherein he described Judas as a “poor, repentant man”.

Thinking on this strange Pope’s even stranger affinity for Judas recalled to mind Father Malachi Martin’s writing about the Judas Complex among the Modernist Churchmen who infest the Church. His 1990 book, “The Keys of This Blood”, has a final portion titled “Coda, the Protocol of Salvation” which contains a fascinating analysis of the precise situation in which we find ourselves today, under a pope who asserts himself as more merciful and practical than Jesus Christ, whom he insists he represents. Indeed, as he himself reminds us, he is “by the will of Christ Himself – the supreme Pastor and Teacher of all the faithful”. And that he enjoys, “supreme, full, immediate, and universal ordinary power in the Church”.

In the earlier post, “The Judas Complex and Pope Francis”, we said,

Appallingly Clear

“There is a need for respect and reverence for people who are homosexual.” – Archbishop de Kesel, just appointed to the see of Brussels by Pope Francis/Danneels.

Archbishop de Kesel, do you really respect this?
If so, WHY???

 

From time to time, we need to restate the purpose of this blog.

The purpose of Return to Fatima is not to defend the Pope from criticism, it is to uphold the constant teaching of our Lord Jesus Christ, to point out the obvious signs that the Pope and hierarchy are in apostasy and to recommend to readers the clear true Message of the Mother of God at Fatima, the only message that can turn the tide of filth that is flowing through the Vatican and corrupting the church and the world.  

Pope Francis has just appointed a loathsome specimen of the sort of prelate that we can expect from this new FrancisChurch of Mercy®. I recently posted on the “Danneels Effect” and drew some criticism for my “appalling tone”.  It is clear to me that Cardinal Danneels is the true power behind Bergoglio and this most recent appointment of Archbishop Jozef De Kesel to the prestigious see of Mechelen-Brussels is proof of this.

Was Pope Benedict SWIFTed?

I recently read an interesting item  regarding Pope Benedict XVI’s resignation, on Maurizio Blondet’s blog.  That link takes you to his full article, excerpts of which I reproduce here. Excuse the poor translation.

From Maurizio Blondet, “Ratzinger Could Neither Sell Nor Buy”.

When, in February 2013, Pope Benedict XVI resigned suddenly and inexplicably, the IOR (Vatican Bank) had been excluded from SWIFT; thus, all the Vatican payments were made impossible,  and the Church was treated as a state-terrorist (secondum America), such as Iran. It was the economic ruin, well prepared by a violent campaign against the IOR, which was confirmed by the opening of criminal investigations of the Italian judiciary (which never fails to obey certain international orders).

Few know what SWIFT is (the acronym stands for Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication – Company Interbank Financial Telecommunication): in theory, is a world “clearing house”  uniting 10,500 banks 215 countries. In fact, it is the most occult and sole center of American financial power-globalist, stick to blackmail on which the hegemony of the dollar, the most powerful means of economic espionage and political (to the detriment especially for us Europeans) and means by which the most feared global finance crushes legs to states that do not obey. (…)

The Belgian site Media-Presse (SWIFT is based in Belgium) in giving the news of the SWIFT alternative launched by Beijing and Moscow, April 5, recounted as an example:

When a bank or territory is excluded from the system, as it did in the case of the Vatican in the days before the resignation of Benedict XVI in February 2013, all transactions are blocked. Without waiting for the election of Pope Bergoglio, the Swift system has been unlocked the announcement of the resignation of Benedict XVI.

There was a blackmail come from who knows where, through Swift, exercised on Benedict XVI. The underlying reasons for this story have not been clarified, but it is clear that SWIFT has intervened directly in the management of affairs of the Church .

This explains and justifies the unprecedented resignation of Ratzinger, that many of us have (considered) an act of cowardice; the Church was treated as a state “terrorist”, but worse –  note that the dozen banks falling into the hands of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria “are not excluded from SWIFT” and continue to be able to make international transactions – and the Vatican finances could no longer pay the nunciature, to convey transport missions – in fact, the same ATM of Vatican City had in fact been blocked. The Church of Benedict could not “neither sell nor buy”, its economic life had counted the hours.

Resignation under duress

It just has to sign (indicate) what Saura Plesio says: Ratzinger  “who fought against the prevailing relativism, never would accept” openings “on gay and gender policies. He never would prostrate to the “world” (and globalism) as this pope (Bergoglio), which competes with the prevailing secularism of the EU to create a form of “divorce sacramental” through “the short cancellation”.  He never would have (been) paid to do the great farce of Lampedusa made by his successor, which moreover is not even its territory, but the Italian state. The great powers have globalists quickly and Ratzinger was a blatant obstruction, a slowdown on their meteoric trajectory.”

How quickly was implemented the expulsion of Ratzinger also suggests that a particular drew out Luciano Canfora. Sympathetic unrepentant communist, but good historian of the Roman and Latin scholar, he has noticed in the motu proprio with which Benedetti has justified his resignation with age (“worsening Aetate “) a series of errors of Latin elementary errors in the concordance of the cases, as to blush a schoolboy. Now Ratzinger can not have committed these errors. The text was written by others, and he was sent away from the Vatican blatantly, helicopter resumed broadcast worldwide?

Immediately after his departure,  SWIFT unlocks Vatican transactions, reopens ATMs, back to the honor of the world the IOR. They did not wait until Bergoglio’s election; all it took was the expulsion of the “white terror”.

In the salons and unreachable between Wall Street and Washington and London, already they knew that the conclave would give the throne to a modernist, one they could trust. Why? The SWIFT sanction had been coordinated with the “conspirators” in purple, led by Carlo Maria Martini (a cardinal who requested euthanasia for himself, remember ..) (1) Bergoglio had marked as their candidate for years? There was an agreement of the conspirators with a strong external power, which are close to ideology? [NOTE: Here he refers to the St. Gallen Group, or Mafia-Club as per Cdl Danneels]

Maybe the election of Bergoglio will not be invalid. But it understands that the resignation of Ratzinger is – was forced to come down from the throne of Peter …. The ambiguous behavior of the same Ratzinger,  maintaining  the white robe and the title of the Holy Father, can confirm it: he wants to give a signal to those who can understand, without being able to say, that was driven out, not gone voluntarily. Now, as a marriage is void if one of the spouses has signed under duress, it will also be a Pope who surrender under duress, and also knows that he is Pope ….

This hypothesis explains very well the triumphal reception that Bergoglio received in America, the UN, Obama, the standing ovation in Congress – already, because then a reigning pope was invited to the US Congress? The thing is very strange and unusual. The relationship of Washington with the Vatican have always been from bad to very bad; not only for Protestant hatred against “popery.” Now, they have become excellent. The Pope is ‘willing mediator of the United States in Cuba’,  its the “radical battles”, opens the new morality compulsory, short stops being the antagonist moral that “this world” hates.

That would explain also the astute management to win the sympathy of progressive media; and the brutal but accurate “purge” that Bergoglio (with his council of Eight) has worked in the Vatican, as if he had in his hand a list long prepared. His willingness to dissolve Catholicism (into) Protestantism in general, vacuous, secular and worldly …

Bergoglio enjoins Christians to accept more immigrants, without limits, with total “welcome” and charity – Well: “With an official statement, signed by as many as 28 different allegiances (including as many as eight French and one Italian, the Grand Lodge ‘ Italy ), the Masons call on European governments to accept immigrants, indeed to embrace more and more. Thus demonstrating a convergence of intent with few precedents not only each other, but also with respect to the new strategies adopted by the Member States “(Correspondenza Romana, 11 September). here he presents the evidence from the Masons themselves. Rorate posted on this earlier this year.

It’s no lie that some cardinal contexts not elect Bergoglio, but invalidates the resignation of Benedict: money is at stake, and the risk of being at the head of a Church “holy” but put into misery by SWIFT definitely makes’ hesitation also the more traditionalCardinals .

As a believer, it calms me this idea: we still have a Pontifex, although speechless. The promise made to Peter is still maintained; the apostolic line is not interrupted, given the sacraments remain valid. And this only matters in the storm.

As men of this generation, we have better identified the false lamb of Revelation 13, with the power to starve and to block, so that “no one could buy or sell” without “The mark on the hand and forehead.” SWIFT, and the bank number (BIC) revealed even more clearly the essence of anti-Christ, and the true purpose of globalization. And you do not call it more conspiracy … But what plot? Here are acting openly, blatantly, without hiding more – and very quickly. Because he “knows he has little time.”

A few days ago, the Fed Chairman Janet Yellen has suffered a sudden illness as she spoke at the University of Massachusetts. On that occasion, as if by accident, we learned from the newspapers who would replace if not possible: the number two, Stanley Fischer, who was governor of the Central Bank of Israel until 2013, and has left that position to assist the Yellen . Even more fans pretend.

Apocalypse 13: 11-17: [11] And I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns, like a lamb, and he spoke as a dragon. [12] And he executed all the power of the former beast in his sight; and he caused the earth, and them that dwell therein, to adore the first beast, whose wound to death was healed. [13] And he did great signs, so that he made also fire to come down from heaven unto the earth in the sight of men. [14] And he seduced them that dwell on the earth, for the signs, which were given him to do in the sight of the beast, saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make the image of the beast, which had the wound by the sword, and lived. [15] And it was given him to give life to the image of the beast, and that the image of the beast should speak; and should cause, that whosoever will not adore the image of the beast, should be slain. [16] And he shall make all, both little and great, rich and poor, freemen and bondmen, to have a character in their right hand, or on their foreheads. [17] And that no man might buy or sell, but he that hath the character, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”

Note

1) Painful truth foreshadowed in the letter of the nephew of Cardinal, Giulia Facchini Martini, published in the “Corriere della Sera” on September 4. The text reads: “You were afraid, not of death itself, but the act of dying, of death and of all that precedes it. We talked together in March and I, as a lawyer I also deal with the protection of the weak, I’d be called upon to clearly express your wishes and the care that you wanted to receive. And so it was. You were afraid, afraid above all of losing control of your body, to die suffocated. (…) With the shared awareness that the time was approaching, when you did it more, you asked to be asleep. So a doctor with two clear eyes and clear, an expert care that accompany death, you sedated “(Mario Palmaro and Alessandro Gnocchi With the death of Cardinal Martini was canonized theology of the doubt, Correspondence Roman, 12 September 2012).

Dear Readers, note that SWIFT is based in Belgium, home of Cardinal Danneels – and also Marc Dutroux who steadfastly held that he was only a henchman for prominent men in international finance. Our post, “The Vatican’s Lavender Heel” shows that the Vatican’s Lavender Lobby is linked to its international financial corruption. The two go together. The most recent homosexual orgy also involved drug smuggling using a car with Vatican license plates to avoid searches. For the latest on the Vatican’s most recent homosexual orgy see this post.
 But events are hastening to their conclusion….

The Danneels Papacy

While most Catholics were distracted by the media circus surrounding Pope Francis’ visit to the United States, Marco Tosatti reported on a biography of Cardinal Godfried Danneels of Belgium. The story was picked up by Rorate and Edward Pentin, and others.

Among the information brought forward is that Danneels himself claims credit for the election of Bergoglio to the papacy. Quoting from Danneels himself, the authors of the biography state that Danneels affirmed he was part of a “‘Mafia-club’ called St. Gall” which worked for years to get Jorge Bergoglio elected Pope. Tosatti then quoted from the Belgian newspaper “Le Vif”,  “On March 13, 2013, an old acquaintance was at the side of the new Pope [at the St. Peter’s Basilica loggia], Francis: Godfried Danneels. Officially he stood there in his role as the dean of the cardinal-priests, but actually he had operated for years in secret as the king-maker.”

The Danneels Papacy

And now we know that Pope Francis has once again appointed Cardinal Danneels to this final Synod to start in a few days. For the time being, let’s ignore the discussions over whether this additional information, indicating manipulation of the papal conclave affects the validity of Bergoglio’s papacy. Let’s focus instead on:

What sort of man is Danneels, the man behind the Bergoglio Papacy?
What does it tell us about the Synod on Marriage and the Family?

Today, we’ll look at just a bit of information. If at all possible, I hope to follow up with at least one more on this crucial issue.

Elizabeth Yore is an internationally known advocate for children. Let’s see what she says about His Eminence Cardinal Danneels. In an article on November 4, 2014, she wrote:

“During his 30 year reign from 1979-2010, as primate of Belgium, Cardinal Danneels oversaw the disastrous free fall of Catholicism in the once strongly Catholic country. Danneels presided over the precipitous secularization of Belgium which instituted abortion on demand, same sex marriage, and euthanasia. In June 2013, Danneels indicated his support for providing legal recognition for same-sex couples. … Not surprisingly, under his episcopacy, religious vocations sunk to a historic low and church attendance dropped to a pitiful 6%.
