Joseph Ratzinger is and remains a controversial figure. This also applies to his role in the abuse scandal. Now the truth has caught him up. The chief investigator of child abuse, failed to speak The Truth. Another prince of the church is caught up with the truth and exposed.
As prefect of the powerful Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith in the Vatican, he made church policy. He was the front man of the Catholic Church, but not of his sheeps, let alone God’s representative. From 2005 to 2013, he toured the world as Pope Benedict XVI. The faithful glorified him, threw themselves at his feet, and donated millions to him.
„There is no question at all that there is a very strong following that admires and glorifies this man and wants to hold on to the Benedict myth at all costs,“ said Reisinger, a former nun who now works as a theologian in Wiesbaden and accuses a former confrere of raping her when she was a nun. „It’s not at all easy for me personally to attack and tear apart this myth either. But we are talking about someone who has accumulated massive failings.“
In his last sermon as cardinal, he preached about „the dictatorship of relativism“ and warned the faithful not to conceal or relativize the truth.
The Tagesspiegel wrote: „The Vatican – a castle of intrigue and unworldliness? A holy place full of hypocrisy? The pope as a lucid ghost in the dark undergrowth of worldly dealings? What kind of movie was actually playing there? Is the Pope really as unworldly as he seems? Has a bridge builder from Germany, of all places, been tearing down bridges?
Yes and No. To Benedict’s credit, he was a friend of Judaism and a staunch opponent of anti-Semitism, and always sought reconciliation between Christianity and Judaism.
But he was also a critic of liberalism and conservatism. He rejected „pragmatic freedom from rule and dogma, religion and morality, society and laws.“ Joseph Ratzinger did not readmit the four apostate bishops of the Brotherhood of St. Pius to the Church.
The apostates, bishops validly consecrated according to the Catholic understanding of the sacraments, may not, in Ratzinger’s view, be readmitted to the Roman Catholic Church at all. They had asked Joseph Ratzinger to be allowed to return, but Ratzinger remained firm. The excommunication should have been lifted, which he firmly refused to do.
But wouldn’t he have been virtually obliged to show and enable „stray“ sheep the way to return? Had not Christ also shown magnanimity when the Pharisees brought before him an adulteress who, according to the law of the time, should have been stoned to death? In his eyes, conservatives and liberals were princes of darkness, enemies of socialism, enemies of multiculturalism and enemies of globalists.
„Ratzinger had fallen into the methods of the ecclesiastical Middle Ages, only to maintain the [deceptive] image of the Church. Moreover, there was no discernible interest in the victims on the part of Archbishop Ratzinger.“
„The four cases of „erroneous behavior,“ were „rigorously“ denied by the pope emeritus himself in a memorandum attached to the dossier. A denial that lawyers consider ’not very credible‘.“
From his Bavarian homeland, therefore, heavy shadows like boulders darken the tranquility of the former Mater Ecclesiae monastery, where Benedict XVI, now almost 95 years old, retired after resigning the pontificate.
„The astonishment also stems from the history of Ratzinger himself, who most denounced the „filth“ in the Church, exposing the phenomenon of pedophilia in the clergy and beginning to interrupt the custom of cover-up. And then, as pope, he excommunicated the powerful serial offender Marcial Maciel Degollado.“ He was probably the most criminal of all the saints. Also known as „The false prophet.“
Josef Ratzinger is facing a shambles at the end of his God-fearing life, despite all his efforts to hide the truth, I sincerely feel sorry for him. In the last days of his life, he must suffer agonies of hell. Let his pain be a warning to all those who live by „the lie will die of the truth.“
Our weapon is the truth. Follow The TRUTH.
