“Rome’s” Final Pope? Benedict XVI Table of Contents, Preface and Prelude Written Text

Every day, for the rest of this week, I am going to post Book One from our book of “Rome” Final Pope? Benedict XVI because I want the truth to reach as many people as possible! I have said this before, but I do not care one jot about making money from publishing; I simply want to reach as many people as possible with the current REAL state of the papacy and Holy Mother Church. As I relayed before, I will no longer be writing in the future, and I want this site to remain open for a source of helpful resources when I leave it. There will be no new posts and I want this blog equipped to help souls. I have already published our rather amateur audio of the Benedict book; it is available for purchase if you would like the ability to physically turn the pages, and now I would like it to be available for those free of charge through here as well.

Today I am posting the table of contents, preface and prelude. Tomorrow I will publish Part One, Thursday Part Two, Friday Part Three and Saturday Part Four. The only part I will not be publishing through here is Book Two of “Gathered Files” composed of the index. The index is equally as large as the book because I believe when it comes to the papacy it is so important to have my evidence and sources sited. It is compiled of Benedict’s speeches, an updated document of John Paul II saying a conclave cannot be called when the See is occupied, and if there is a conclave it is automatically made null, the secretary to BOTH Benedict and Bergoglio’s speeches and Misc documents to prove my “case”. There’s is nothing in this for me, but the salvation of souls and in defense of Mary’s abused and neglected Heart.

I am only including the reviews, because if this topic still scares you, it is always helpful to see into the mind of other traditional Catholics. Remember, schism is not on the side of the majority, but on the side of truth and Truth (Capital “T”) is an infinite Being!

Reviews (thank you Jim, Susan and Scott for your thoughtful and well written reviews; I could not have done it without my Launch team)

Jim: Great book!

What is a Pope Emeritus? Is Benedict XVI still the Pope? This question has been percolating in the Catholic world for years and lately has been picking up intensity. This is partially due to the actions of Francis, but more significantly due to studies people have made of Benedict’s speeches and writings (foremost his ‘retirement’ allocutions), including those made when he was Cardinal Ratzinger.

This book is the latest to look at this case. Realize that through Church history there have been upwards of 40 time there were men claiming to be Pope when someone else was actually Pope. In some cases, there were saints on both sides of the question before the issue was settled. Canon Law, the guiding rules for the operation of the Church in the world, even recognizes that “All persons are bound to seek the truth in those things which regard God and Church and by virtue of divine law are bound by the obligation and possess the right of embracing and observing the truth they have come to know.” (748 §1).

This book is a welcomed addition to the topic. The author lays out a series of references, discussions, and interpretations of Church history over the past 100 years and includes many of them either as links or as sections in the appendix (do not let the length of the book scare you off: half of it is the appendices, and the text is not dense). She makes use of, and comments on, speeches and writings of Benedict/Ratzinger, other Catholics active in the current Church, Biblical texts, and finally pulls in various prophecies and Church-approved apparitions (with one exception).

The ending was a surprise (at least to me), but there is a certain logic to it that makes it plausible. While no Catholic needs to agree with it, each Catholic is required by Canon law 748 to seek the truth in the matter. This book will aide in the search for truth here.

Susan: Very interesting!

This is not just some mediocre book about the papacy. No, not at all! This reads like a thriller from start to finish, with an unexpected twist at the end. This is a very important book written so that the faithful can learn the truth regarding Pope Benedict XVI’s resignation.

Once more, just as with her last powerful book, this talented author uses self-disclosure (with photos) of pertinent events in her life that are germane to the books theme.

As traditional Catholics, we are all very interested in Fatima, the most important message in our lifetime. Reading this book, you will learn some profound happenings about the Third Secret of Fatima, the Apocalypse, Canon law 188, The False Prophet, Peter the Roman, and much more.

Scott: spiritual police officer

Rather than taking on the role of spiritual warrior who seeks personal justice in the name of God, the author, instead could be thought of as a kind of spiritual police officer, in the sense of being an engaged authority at the scene and not attempting to be the judge or prosecutor, similar to the saints we all know and love. They are agents of the divine, not relying on the personal “self”.
In my opinion the author achieves the goal of providing the necessary guidance and direction for the reader with regards to the “elephant in the room” handling of the state of the papacy and has accepted for the love of God and man the responsibility of guardian in this earthly realm. Thank you for the perfectly timed display of courage.

Book II

Gathered files and important documents surrounding Fatima, the Apocalypse and the papacy


This book’s chosen topic is the hardest thing I have ever had to write; it is cringeworthy, controversial and political. I have lost friends over it, received hate mail, been told “you are not Catholic” or “you come on too strong”, been called a conspiracy theorist or a sedevacantist. And worse: “Our Lady must not be pleased with you”. Even the just, who believe the contents of this work, are afraid to write about it, say it out loud or preach it from the pulpit (for those who are shepherds) for fear of the persecution that comes with it. Many who have blogs or high following on their social media platforms are terrified of posting about it because their donors might not click the donate button on their PayPal anymore. I am the biggest coward I know. However, I began to pray that Our Lady would give me the gift of courage. Courage does not mean that you are not afraid; rather, it is the ability to still be able to achieve something that frightens us. We begin exorcising this muscle of courage, if you will, by ceasing our unholy silence. What do I mean by that? Ann Barnhardt says this about silence:

What I would submit is the great crime against God committed by His People over the past fifty years is our SILENCE – our passive, impotent, effeminate acceptance of the profound violence done against Him, His Church, and His Liturgy. We, our parents, our grandparents, our great-grandparents, sat in silence and watched as sodomites turned the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass into a neo-pagan low-rent cruise ship floorshow. Our response was either the silence of apostasy, as more than 90% of Catholics in the West simply stopped going to Mass, or the silence of tacitly accepting the obvious abuse and overt hostility toward Our Lord and His Church by diabolically narcissistic sex perverts and their truly pathetic, co-dependent hangers-on. The collapse of our culture, the abortion, the ascendancy of sexual perversion, the evanescence of genuine masculinity, the collapse of the Rule of Law – all of these things are DERIVATIVE of the destruction of the Liturgy, a destruction that we sat, wallowing in our collective effeminacy, and watched.[1]

You might find yourself cringing at how blunt Ann sounds, but that is only because the last fifty years, as she mentioned, have been filled with nothing but political correctness, unholy “prudence” and… silence. We have failed our great God and Our Lady by watching the Lamb be crucified again, and again by His own. There is such a thing as holy silence: the kind Our Lord displayed before Herod. Then, there is the kind displayed merely for our fear of men, silence for fear of loss of their approval and “go along to get along”. If the saints who came before us had the opportunity to live in this age of Mary, they would not be acting this way. How they must envy us for being able to live during a time where we have the opportunity to suffer greatly for the Blessed Trinity and Our Blessed Mother in ways they never could, but we choose to be comfortable. This is how we show Our Great God our love? The martyrs who came before us shed their blood in the coliseum, were burned at the stake, or beheaded in the bloody French Revolution due to their boundless trust in God, fortitude and fearlessness.

Us? Silence. When I began losing friends and shunned even by priests, even though canon law showed me I was right, I was tempted to stop speaking about this topic publicly and go back to praying for the intention in secret. But then, I was reminded of the parable of the talents; if Our Lord has given me so precious a gift of understanding in regard to the current state of the papacy, and then I repay Him by going and burying this truth He has given me, out of my fear of men (“And being afraid I went and hid thy talent in the earth”) rather than fear of the Master, when I could have shared this talent with as many people as I could and enlightened them as well, how dare I. I would expect nothing less than to hear these words spoken in the parable:

 And his lord answering, said to him: Wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sow not, and gather where I have not strewed.[2]

We need to reach a point, due to our deep love of Jesus and Mary, where we stop worrying who will be offended by our speaking the truth. Worry about who will be misled, deceived and destroyed if you do not. Perhaps I am that servant who was only given that one talent. However, I am still expected to perform the same task as those who have twice the number of talents. I am no Ann Barnhardt or Doctor Taylor Marshall, who, have the ability to reach souls by the thousands through their platforms. I, on the other hand, have a mediocre blog with not even half as many followers and am writing this poor work, out of my simple love for Mary, hoping that maybe even one soul can read this and come to see the truth for what it is; the real, undistorted truth. If I carry this out until my last dying breath, at least I can go back to my Master with sheer confidence, joyfully hoping to hear Him say:

 Well done, good and faithful servant, because thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will place thee over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.[3]

Did you catch that? “A few things”. Our Lord meets us right where we are at, and only gives us small portions at a time. When He sees that we are able to faithfully accomplish the little He entrusted to us, He then gives us nobler tasks where we can fight for His Kingdom proportionate to our strength. Now THAT is a God I want to serve. I was given that gift of courage by hearing one distinct phrase spoken of by Barnhardt: speak the truth and God will provide. I knew Our Lady spoke through Ann, and since that day I have adopted that motto and whenever I suffer persecution, for what I am about to share in this book, I repeat that saying. Pope Saint Gregory VII’s last words were this:

I have loved justice and hated iniquity; therefore, I die in exile.

Is not THAT what it means to be a saint? Shunned by the world but embraced by The Lamb. Our Carmelite Holy Mother Teresa of Jesus, in her Interior Castle, describes how many remain in the first few Mansions because they content themselves with mediocrity. This can easily be applied to those who have not the courage to defend Our Lord and Our Lady in adversity. Take it from me. I know what it is like to be in a room filled with dozens of people and not one of them agree with me about Pope Benedict, but that does not mean they are right and thus, we choose to cower. It automatically sounds prideful to come out and say: “listen, all of you are wrong and I am right”. This approach will immediately make you lose half your followers. This is where we need to only have the simple and childlike courage of Our Lord.

All we must do is look back to the Gospels, where, none other than dozens of chief priests, scribes and pharisees were pointing at Our Lord and saying “thou hast a devil” and was perpetually contradicted more times than we can count. His public ministry was surrounded by politics and because “His hour had not yet come”, we see how “He hid Himself” or miraculously left the crowd before they could lay hands on Him. But despite this, for doing the will of the Father and answering all of their deceitful questions openly and honestly, He also converted dozens who were silently watching the discussions. He is our Guide, because He too was often the only right One in the room, and did He cower over it? Nay, He climbed a tree and died for love of His sheep. If you are the only right one in the room and fear takes hold of you, remember that you have a whole host of angels on your side; if the world persecutes you, remember that it persecuted your Master first. The only reason Our Lord did not face death earlier, during the many occasions He faced in His public life, was because His predestined moment, hour and day had not yet arrived. If we do not start being brave in the little things and then the opportunity of red martyrdom presents itself, how on earth could we accept such a gift when we did not begin by dying each day? Grace grows on nature, and courage begets courage. And courage, is contagious. So, what is this book’s contentious topic? If the title and cover of this book have not already given it away, it is this:

Pope Benedict XVI is still the pope, and he is the only reigning pope since April 19th, 2005.

Why does this book say Rome’s “final” pope? I will answer that in this volume. The theme that I placed in bold, if you do not already share this view, most likely makes you react in a few different ways: fear, confusion or anger. There is really no medium with the discussed papacy of Joseph Ratzinger. “Politics and Catholicity do not mix” they say. Wrong. Father Chad Ripperger reminds the sheep that “traditionally speaking” there is no separation between Church and State. Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò was asked about why he too is so involved in politics, and this was his reply:

Who decided that a bishop cannot intervene in politics? Secularists and, among Catholics, those who curiously let bishops and ultra-progressive clerics rant, who go into deliquio if Bergoglio speaks against Trump or in favor of Trudeau, but tear their clothes if a bishop does not please the system or does not follow the unified network narrative of single thought. It does not seem to me that Saint Ambrose – who also came from the public administration and who was acclaimed bishop when he was still a layman – ever had scruples to intervene in political matters. Since a bishop is a shepherd, and among the sheep of the Flock that the Lord has assigned to him there are humble people and powerful people, there are subjects and rulers, men and women, honest and delinquent citizens: they are all sheep to be led to pastures and to be protected from wolves.


The Third Fatima Secret is so political that it is still kept sequestered in the walls of the Vatican today. “Politics do not mix”; well, whether we prefer it or not, they are mixing as we speak! And as Viganò said, someone needs to sound the alarm. Charity is the fulfillment of the Law, so in order to give our complete adoration to the Sacred Heart we must use our hearts and minds for His glory. This means staying educated with what is going on inside the “deep State” and the “deep Church”; this means differentiating “the children of light” from “the children of darkness”. Saint Catherine of Siena said, “Start being brave about everything. Drive out darkness and spread light. Don’t look at your weaknesses. Realize instead that in Christ Crucified you can do everything”. Many will say that the current state of the papacy is not our affair and thus, we must leave this crisis to the hierarchy and canon lawyers. Yet, Saint Paul says: “the spiritual man judgeth all things”[5] and Our Lord also said, “do not judge appearances. Judge the just judgement”[6].

Judging the current state of the papacy is our duty and turning our back on the rock of Peter is the greatest current crisis. Why? Because the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary is directly linked to the papacy- it depends on the papacy. The consecration of Russia IS the triumph of Her Immaculate Heart, and so when I hear even priests saying “that is not my affair, I will stick to praying and fighting for the unborn” (which of course is a noble deed) he is forgetting the “era of peace” Our Lady promised, which indeed includes the end of abortion, can only stem from an intact papacy united with holy and like-minded bishops who come together and perform this consecration for heaven.

 Of course, praying and fighting for the unborn is a must, but the true remedy for the unborn can only be found in Our Lady’s triumph: “only She can help you”. Trust me when I say that this triumph will only occur when the current state of the papacy is talked about, exposed and resolved. Because only THEN can a PROPER consecration of Russia be done. Every day is an opportunity, and we are wasting time. Our Lady said the consecration would be late, but it would be done. What can WE do, you may ask? Besides prayer and fasting, this begins with open and honest discussion about Pope Benedict XVI; there must not be cancel culture in the Catholic Church, as well. In this preface, I humbly and lovingly ask you one thing: read this book through from beginning to end before you cast judgement or form an opinion. Do not slam this book shut before reading all the evidence. We owe Our Lord and Our Lady our complete and undivided attention. We should hear all evidence BEFORE coming to a proper conclusion.

I am giving you a chance to put down this book right now: If you do not like a mixture of politics in the Church as well as politics in the world, then this is not the book for you, and I would suggest not reading it. Also, if you think Jorge Mario Bergoglio has done absolutely no damage to the Church, then this is also not the book for you.

Really, it will not hurt my feelings. Well, it might sting a little bit, because human nature. But just as it was politics surrounding Pontius Pilate’s decision to crucify the Savior, the politics that led to Our Lord’s Passion, the politics that led to the hiding of the Fatima Third Secret, it is also politics that surround the papacy of Pope Benedict XVI and why he is still wearing the papal white living in a large house inside the Vatican walls, today. I said politics a total of four times in that single sentence to instill in the reader just how political this subject matter is. Do I wish it were otherwise? Of course, but in order to show you the entire truth about how and why Ratzinger is the only roman pontiff with the power to bind and loose, I must not leave out one single jot. You will only get the truth from me; many do not know Truth, even when it is staring one in the face, such as what we saw with Our Lord before Pilate. The latter asked: what is truth? And the Truth of the matter is many are too shell shocked and simply do not recognize the sweet sound of the bride of the Lamb any longer. Why? We will immediately answer that question in Part One.

May we Catholics anticipate, with a firm hope, the complete restoration of the Traditional Latin Mass to its rightful state, the proper Consecration of Russia, the First Saturday Devotion becoming a universal practice of the Catholic Church, the restoration of the papacy in honor of the Chair of Saint Peter and the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Let us never for a second ignore the Blessed Virgin Mary. We need to fight with Her and for Her. May Mary’s divine portion of Israel, the elect, become saints and red martyrs for the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Christ the King and Our Lady of Fatima. Never will Jesus Christ be known as He ought without the Mediatrix of all Graces. The time has come; there is no longer a need to hide Her, for this is the age of Mary!

 I do not have my name associated with any of our books, but refer to myself as “Mary’s Secretary”, because I aspire to be known by no one. This work is only being published for the sole hope that Our Lady’s “talents” will be buried no longer, and instead “another five over” be gained for the kingdom of heaven.

Prelude: An Unforgettable Account

“Didn’t you see the Holy Father?” I don’t know how it was, but I saw The Holy Father in a very big house, kneeling by a table, with his head buried in his hands, and he was weeping.” ~Jacinta Marto~

Jacinta’s Visions, an Italian Stigmatist and Fatima Questions Answered

During the one-hundred-year anniversary of the Fatima apparitions, in 2017, I flew to Rome, Italy to visit a community of cloistered Poor Clare nuns. For twenty days -more or less- I made a silent retreat near the sisters where I was given a little house off to the side of the chapel. During this trip various priests (Fraternity of Saint Peter’s Father William Barker and Monsignor Patrick from -what used to be- the Ecclesia Dei office in the Vatican) came to offer The Traditional Latin Mass. This retreat was more providential than I can explain. Mother Mary Regina, Cardinal Burke’s former secretary, put me in touch with Monsignor and I happened to begin my retreat the same weekend these particular members of the clergy were celebrating Mass there. Monsignor Patrick offered me the opportunity of a lifetime, when he promised me a personal in-side tour of the Vatican and Ecclesia Dei before returning to America.

I saw something that I did not expect to see during this tour; I kept praying that Our Lady would “accidentally” give me a chance to speak to the Holy Father, if we “happened” to see him, in the Vatican Gardens. I wanted to have the zeal, and opportunity, of the mighty Saint Catherine of Siena to essentially tell The Holy Father: “get with the program” in regard to the consecration of Russia. This never happened, but something else occurred, which was so profound that it is the most vivid memory of my time spent in the “Eternal City” (besides getting our wallet stolen). As Monsignor was driving me around the grounds, in his very small Vatican vehicle, he showed me the various living quarters of past Holy Fathers, a piece of the Berlin Wall that was gifted to Pope John Paul II at the end of the Cold War, and dozens of glorious grottos found inside the Vatican walls. But then he drove up to a “very big house”, stopped the car, and we entered into an unforgettable conversation. He told me that the large home was the current residence of Pope Benedict XVI. Big home… was an understatement… it was the size of a monastery; in fact, it used to be one. The property was gated off and surrounded by walls; it reminded me of a cloistered monastery for one man. Monsignor Patrick then pointed up to the pope’s open window and said, “sometimes, you can hear him playing the piano”. I looked over at Monsignor and said, “I miss Benedict” and he so memorably replied, “we all do”.

As we drove away, I was left with such a powerful impression that my own short prayer of seeing the Holy Father was somehow answered. Not at all in the way I was expecting, but the sense was so immense that I was struck with the understanding that Pope Benedict XVI needs prayers; I was not quite sure why this need was so urgent, but it made sense when I returned to America. Months following that memorable experience I found myself on a daily basis studying the Fatima message and its direct link to a future Holy Father in the vision Our Lady showed Lucia, Jacinta and Francisco (not the words of Our Lady still kept hidden, but the description of the explosive scene itself). I was instantly struck when I learned about little Jacinta’s mysterious visions- only showed to her- of a future pope. I was stunned when I discovered one of her visions contained a future Holy Father living in a large home. Something immediately clicked; nothing but sheer destiny led me to the gates of Joseph Ratzinger’s residence. That very same year, in 2017, a few months after that encounter I entered into a cloistered Discalced Carmelite Monastery, where, I began praying for Pope Benedict alone at the Te Igitur of the Mass. I did not discuss it with the nuns, but I recall walking past an image of Pope Benedict, hung and framed in one of the cloister hallways, where every time I walked by it, I sensed that praying for him was essential and more urgent than ever. When I left Carmel to answer the more ancient call of a Carmelite Hermitess (anchorite)[7], a powerful book landed in my hands, not even a month after my departure, about the several canon laws broken by Pope Benedict XVI’s (non) “resignation”. Again, everything began to click.

Mater Ecclesiae Monastery- current home of Pope Benedict XVI:

Jacinta’s Visions

Fatima expert and author of The Whole Truth About Fatima, Frere Michel, provides commentary on Sister Lucia’s memoirs regarding Jacinta’s visions:

Vision #1 of a Future Holy Father mocked and persecuted

One day we spent our siesta down by my parent’s well. Jacinta sat on the stone slab on top of the well. Francisco and I climbed up a steep bank in search of wild honey among the brambles in a nearby thicket. After a little while, Jacinta called out to me: “Didn’t you see the Holy Father?” “No.” “I don’t know how it was, but I saw The Holy Father in a very big house, kneeling by a table, with his head buried in his hands, and he was weeping. Outside the house, there were many people. Some of them were throwing stones, others were cursing him and using bad language. Poor Holy Father, we must pray much for him.” Memoir 144

Frere Michel de la Sainte Trinite, in his second volume of The Whole Truth About Fatima, says this about the vision:

This mysterious vision is not easy to interpret correctly. However, we know that it certainly took place after July 13, 1917, since it presupposes that the Secret was already revealed, and indeed before October 1918, when Jacinta and Francisco became sick. We also know that this vision concerns an event announced in the Secret, for Lucy continues her account, and writes:

I have already told you how, one day, two priests recommended that we pray for the Holy Father, and explained to us who the Pope was. Afterwards, Jacinta asked me: “Is he the one I saw weeping, the one Our Lady told us about in the Secret?” “Yes, he is,” I answered. And Jacinta, with childlike candor, went on: “The Lady must surely have shown him also to those priests. You see, I wasn’t mistaken. We need to pray a lot for him.” Memoir 145

Frere Michel continues:

This vision must be kept in mind, for it helps us to better understand the corresponding words of the Secret, announcing persecutions against the Church and The Holy Father, who will have much to suffer. Has the prophecy been fulfilled? Certain interpreters believed it applied to Pope Pius XII. But as we will explain in Volume III, it seems more probable to us that it concerns the future, just like another vision of Jacinta concerning the Holy Father…

Vision # 2 of a future Holy Father:


At another time, Lucy says, we went to the cave called Lapa do Cabeço. As soon as we got there, we prostrated on the ground, saying the prayers the Angel had taught us. After some time, Jacinta stood up and called to me: “Can’t you see all those highways and roads full of people, who are crying with hunger and have nothing to eat? And the Holy Father in a church praying before the Immaculate Heart of Mary? And so many people praying with him?” Memoir 146

Frere Michel writes:

Horrible visions of a frightful war, of which the events of 1939-1945 were, alas, only the first phase. We will have occasion to return to this subject. For the great war prophesied in the Secret, of which the nocturnal aurora of January 25th-26th, 1938, was only a sign announcing that it was at hand, was not so much the German war. It was the pitiless struggle, the unceasing war waged by the Soviet Union to extend to the whole world the hegemony of an atheistic, antireligious, and bloody communist regime. As for The Holy Father praying before the Immaculate Heart of Mary, may we not believe that it concerns the Pope mentioned at the conclusion of the Secret: In the end… The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to Me? Again, Sister Lucy clarifies the point, for this second vision corresponds to an event prophesied in the Secret:

Some days later, Jacinta asked me: “Can I say that I saw The Holy Father and all those people?” “No. Don’t you see that that’s part of the Secret? If you do, they’ll find out right away!” “All right! Then I’ll say nothing at all.” Memoir 147


When Our Lady revealed the future to Jacinta, and let her see The Holy Father persecuted, mocked, abandoned by all, and in tears, Jacinta understood how much he needed prayers. This gave Jacinta such love for The Holy Father that, every time she offered her sacrifices to Jesus, she added: “And for The Holy Father”. At the end of the Rosary, she always said three Hail Marys for The Holy Father. Memoir 150

Frere Michel concludes:

It is indeed surprising to observe how much, after the apparition of July 13th, the thought of The Holy Father kept constantly coming back to the minds of the three seers. This was one of their major preoccupations, along with solicitude for sinners, and the sight of the terrifying war to come. Why? Undoubtedly because the Pope plays a role of decisive importance in the great prophecy of the Secret: he is already named five times in the published part of the Secret; we may believe that he is mentioned again in the part which has not yet been published. Let us add that several supernatural communications Sister Lucy was later favored with, concerning the role of The Holy Father in the great prophecy of the Secret, surely supply us with the context which sheds much light on the visions of Jacinta.[8]

Italian Stigmatist and Fatima Questions Answered

Founder of The Fatima Center, God rest his soul, Father Nicholas Gruner, in an interview relayed how he had a discussion with Frere Michel about the requirements for a proper consecration of Russia:

Sr. Lucia reported that the Virgin of Fatima appeared to her again on June 13, 1929, and said:

This is the moment when God asks:

1.) the Holy Father to make,

2.) in union with all the bishops of the world,

3.) the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart.

He promises to save it by that means. So many are the souls which the justice of God condemns for sins committed against Me that I come to ask for 4.) reparation. Sacrifice yourself for this intention and pray.

Look what Frere Michel wrote in Volume II about why reparation is also a requirement:

God is so insistent about this reparation that He has placed it at the beginning and end of the whole great plan revealed at Tuy. First of all at the beginning, for at the same time as the act of consecration, God asks the Pope and the bishops for «a solemn and public act of reparation to the Immaculate Heart of Mary» if the Pope and the bishops consecrate it to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, «and if His Holiness promises, through the end of this persecution, to approve and recommend the practice of the devotion of reparation» on the first Saturdays of the month. It is an admirable exchange of promises by which God wishes to draw the Vicar of Christ to resolutely commit the whole Church to this reparatory devotion which He so greatly desires to see practiced everywhere.

However, this was NOT what Frere Michel told Father Gruner later. Notice how in his works Michel said the “act of reparation” that could fulfil that requirement is the Five Consecutive First Saturdays. But this is where it gets chilling; Frere Michel told Father Gruner that Our Lady has been so insulted at the Third Secret not being revealed in 1960 like She asked, and still sequestered today, that at this point in his opinion, the only act of reparation that will be acceptable after the years of disobedience, and grace given to perform the proper consecration, will be the pope finally revealing the Third Secret in its entirety to the public. Fatima experts believe the beginning of the Third Secret to be: “in Portugal the Dogma of the faith will always be preserved … etc.” Lucia ended the sentence with. It is not likely Our Lady would have used the phrase “et reliqua” at the end of a sentence, so those “twenty to twenty-five lines” of words IN that “etc.” of the Madonna, seen through Sister Lucia’s envelope, is our answer to the “why” this future Holy Father is killed.[9] Contained in that “etc.” is a world of meaning. In that same interview with Father Gruner, Father Paul Kramer is also found at the table answering Fatima questions. Kramer spoke about a stigmatist from Italy who also had the gift of prophecy. Read what Father Kramer said about the holy man:

On this point I would refer to the testimony of the Roman stigmatist, Antonio Ruffini. Pope Pius XII authorized the blessing of a chapel on the spot where Ruffini received the stigmata on the Via Appia, and Father Tomaselli, the miracle worker, wrote a booklet about him — a short account of the life of Ruffini. I myself knew Ruffini for many years. In the early 1990s Ruffini was asked point blank in his home: “Is John Paul II the Pope who is going to do the Consecration of Russia?” He answered: “No, it’s not John Paul. It will not be his immediate successor either [Benedict], but the one after that. He is the one who will consecrate Russia.” That is, Benedict’s successor, during this time of world war and persecution of the Church, will be the one to do the Consecration at long last, and then the restoration and the triumph of the Immaculate Heart will begin.

The interview ends with Father Gruner choking up in tears when he relays how the releasing of the Secret alone will be the salvation of many souls, there will be long lines for confession and the grace will come after that for the proper consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart. Gruner and Kramer lastly stated that it is likely Benedict XVI will not have time to consecrate Russia but will reveal the Third Secret in the middle of a war and then be martyred. Does that not sound like the Holy Father in the Third Secret, making his way through a city half-destroyed? I don’t know about you, but nowhere, since 1917 to now have we seen:

  1. A Holy Father living in a “large house” until Pope Benedict XVI.
  2. A “old and frail Holy Father” martyred in a half-ruined city. Many will bite my head off for speculating, but this very well could be Joseph Ratzinger, because he just celebrated his 95th birthday this past 2022 on Easter Vigil. “Old and frail”?

I know what you must be speculating: if it’s not Benedict who will consecrate Russia, then it is obviously “Pope Francis” because he is the “successor” of Benedict. Wrong, in that very same interview with Father Gruner and Father Kramer they discuss how the obvious answer is “if one is an anti-pope, then he’s not the pope, and thus NOT the legitimate successor” to Papa Ratzinger. To solidify my point, listen to what Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò said about the current state of the papacy:

Certain popes — let us not forget — are granted (by God); others are inflicted (as a punishment). But before one discusses the next Conclave, it is necessary to shed light on the abdication of Benedict XVI and on the question of the frauds in the Conclave of 2013, which sooner or later must give place to an official investigation. If evidence of irregularities should be found, the Conclave would be declared null, the election of Bergoglio, null, just as all of his nominations would be null, his acts of governance and teaching. A reset that would providentially bring us back to the status quo ante (the way things were before him) with a College of Cardinals composed only of the Cardinals nominated until the time of Benedict XVI, excluding all those created from 2013 onwards, all of which are notorious ultra-progressives. 

Certainly, the actual situation, with all the revelations regarding the resignation of Ratzinger and the election of Bergoglio, don’t help the Body of the Church and create confusion and disorientation among the Faithful.

Notice how, in this next line of Viganò’s, how he comes right out and tells the sheep that Benedict XVI is still the pope, and we must “dispose Bergoglio the pretender”. As I will show you in the canon law chapter, it is actually NOT a college of cardinals who choose who is or who is not the pope in terms of resignation, but “the Law itself” renders a resignation invalid if there are any “substantial errors” or “fear of malice” on part of said pope.
