“Fear them not. For nothing is covered that shall not be revealed: nor hid, that shall not be known.”
Our natural inclination is to turn away from what is especially degrading. we want to cover our revered leaders when they appear before the world in shameful, naked disarray, protect them from the scorn of the hateful world. And so Catholics have attempted, with little success to shore up the ruins as our “Holy Fathers” have continued to shelter and even promote the most pernicious evils within the bosom of the Church. The result has been disastrous, of that there can be no doubt and the evil within has grown in the shadows and now is bursting forth, as was inevitable.
In previous posts we have discussed the latest scandal at the Vatican, and suggested reference to St. Catherine of Siena. Today, we will close with considering the foregoing in light of the prophecies of Pope Leo XIII and Cardinal Manning.
The fact that Msgr. Capozzi partied in regal splendor in the same apartment that Cardinal Ratzinger lived in when he was head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, and drove a luxury car with the very prized Vatican plates, making him immune from police searches proves that he was highly regarded by powerful Vatican personages. Without that indulgent support of a Prince of the Church, Capozzi could not have had his orgies, or the flat, or the luxury car he used for drug smuggling. Thus, whether or not Pope Francis admits it, this scandal is laid at his humble feet. It would be a serious mistake to disregard the importance of this episode.
Edward Pentin has revealed that:
a reliable senior member of the curia has told the Register that he has heard from “multiple sources” that the story is true, including from another senior curial figure. He said the extent of homosexual practice in the Vatican has “never been worse,” despite efforts begun by Benedict XVI to root out sexual deviancy from the curia after the Vatileaks scandal of 2012.
“The precise details of the reported events in the CDF therefore remain open to question, but the substance of the story appears to be true. If so, many would find such behavior taking place in the Holy Office not only unconscionable but also highly sacrilegious.
And so, we see that under Pope Francis, homosexual activity in the Vatican “has never been worse” and that even to seasoned observers of the tragic auto-demolition of the faith, this latest sordid event is deemed sacrilegious. Yet most Catholic media either downplay the event or ignore it entirely. You see in so much of the coverage the unsubstantiated claim that “Pope Francis is furious!” Note that Bergoglio’s purported “fury” does not clarify whether Pope Francis is furious that homosexual prelates are dragging the Vatican into the gutters or whether he is furious because this sordid episode came to light. But since Bergoglio has chosen to live in the Guest House of his intimate friend Msgr. Ricca, and even to promote him to Prelate of the Vatican Bank, one must suspect it is the latter cause which perturbs his serenity.
So what are we to glean from all this?
