If you speak to the Catholics of Buenos Aires, they will tell you of the miraculous change that has taken over Jorge Mario Bergoglio. Their dour, unsmiling archbishop was turned overnight into the smiling, jolly Pope Francis, the idol of the people with whom he so fully identifies. If you speak to anyone working in the Vatican, they will tell you about the miracle in reverse. When the publicity cameras are off him, Pope Francis turns into a different figure: arrogant, dismissive of people, prodigal of bad language and notorious for furious outbursts of temper which are known to everyone from the cardinals to the chauffeurs.
As Pope Francis said himself on the evening of his election, the cardinals in the Conclave of March 2013 seemed to have decided to go “to the ends of the Earth” to choose their Pope, but the realisation is now dawning that they had not troubled to check their merchandise. At first, he seemed a breath of fresh air, his rejections of convention being the signs of a man who was going to bring bold, radical reform into the Church. In the fifth year of his pontificate it is becoming increasingly clear that the reform is not being delivered. Instead, what we have is a revolution in personal style, but a revolution which is not a happy one for what Catholics consider the most sacred office on Earth. Conservative Catholics are worried at the changes in moral teaching that Francis seems to be introducing, while liberals are dissatisfied because those changes are vaguely expressed and do not go far enough. Over and above such fears, however, are faults that ought to move all Catholics concerned for the integrity of the Church and the papal office. After nearly five years of his pontificate, Francis is showing that he is not the democratic, liberal ruler that the cardinals thought they were electing in 2103, but a papal tyrant the like of whom has not been seen for many centuries. Shocking as the accusation may be, it is backed up by incontrovertible evidence. This book traces the failed reforms which have falsified the hopes that were placed in Francis, and describes in detail the reign of fear in the Vatican which the Pope from Argentina has introduced.
Chapter 1
The St Gallen Mafia
1. Danneels reveals all in a television interview
After over four years of Pope Francis Bergoglio, it is being said with more frequency, and more openly, that the strange situation in today’s Vatican resembles nothing less than a Dan Brown potboiler novel, complete with conspiracies of eminent churchmen, sexual and financial scandals and shady international banking interests. While many look hopefully to Pope Francis to relax the Church’s traditional doctrines and practices, there has been surprisingly little attention paid to a remark by one of the highest-ranking and most powerful prelates in the western world, that he was elected by a liberal “mafia,” a group of progressive bishops and cardinals who had worked for years to bring about exactly this end.
Far from being an accusation from Church conservatives, the term was first used in a television interview in September 2015 by Cardinal Godfried Danneels, the retired but still hugely influential archbishop of Brussels-Mechelen. Danneels said that he had for years been part of this group that had opposed Pope Benedict XVI throughout his reign. The group had, he said, worked to bring about a “much more modern” Catholic Church, and the election of the archbishop of Buenos Aires, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, as pope. An examination of the background of these extraordinary comments can give an insight into the nature of current ecclesiastical politics, particularly in liberal European episcopal circles.

2. St Gallen Mafia? What is it, when was it formed, by whom and why?
“The St Gallen group is sort of a posh name,” Danneels said, to appreciative laughs from a live audience. “But in reality we called ourselves and that group: ‘the mafia’.” The cardinal was speaking on a Belgian television programme. In the brief video uploaded to the internet containing Danneels’ remarks, a voice-over summarised the nature of the group that “met every year since 1996” in St Gallen, Switzerland, originally at the invitation of the town’s bishop, Ivo Fürer and the famous Italian Jesuit and academic, archbishop of Milan, Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini.
“Together they organised the secret ‘resistance’ against Cardinal Ratzinger, who at that time was the right-hand man of John Paul II,” as head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.
“When Pope John Paul II died in 2005, the group already pushed the present pope [Francis] to the fore,” though this first attempt failed to put Jorge Mario Bergoglio on the throne. When faced with the election of Ratzinger as Pope Benedict XVI, “Danneels could hardly hide his disappointment,” the narrator says.
Danneels gave the interview to promote his authorised biography, and added that the St Gallen group had bishops and cardinals, “too many to name.” But all of them held the same general aim: the implementation of a “liberal/progressivist” agenda , opposition to Pope Benedict and the direction of moderate doctrinal conservatism. Although later it was denied that the group was secret, Danneels said, “Things were discussed very freely; no reports were made so that everyone could blow off steam.”
The programme interviewed Danneels' biographer, Jurgen Mettepenningen, saying that by 2013, with the resignation of Benedict, “You can say that through his participation in that group, Cardinal Danneels has been one of those who were the pioneers of the choice of Pope Francis.”
The authors of the Danneels biography listed the group’s concerns as “the situation of the Church,” the “primacy of the Pope,” “collegiality,” and “John Paul II's succession.” English Vaticanist Edward Pentin writes that they “also discussed centralism in the Church, the function of bishops’ conferences, development of the priesthood, sexual morality [and] the appointment of bishops.” A schema more or less identical to the one that was to come into public view at the two Synods on the Family convened by Pope Francis in 2014 and 2015.
The cardinal’s authorised biography was co-authored by Mettepenningen, and Karim Schelkens. As one of the most powerful Catholic prelates in Europe and one of the leading voices in the dominant liberal camp of the European episcopate, Danneels’ biography was of great public interest. Lest it be imagined that the cardinal was joking, the existence and general purpose of the St Gallen “mafia” was confirmed the next day by Schelkens in an interview with a local St Gallen radio station.
Pentin summarised, writing in the National Catholic Register: “The personalities and theological ideas of the members sometimes differed, but one thing united them: their dislike of the then-prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger.”
Pentin wrote, “The group wanted a drastic reform of the Church, much more modern and current, with Jorge Bergoglio, Pope Francis, as its head. They got what they wanted.” Pentin adds in a later article that although the St Gallen group officially ceased meetings in 2006, there can be no doubt that their influence continued into 2013. “It’s safe to say that it helped form a network that paved the way for at least favouring Cardinal Bergoglio at the Conclave seven years later.”
In 2015, the German author and Vatican expert Paul Badde confirmed this, saying that he had received “reliable information” that three days after the burial of pope John Paul II, Cardinals Martini, Lehmann and Kasper from Germany, Bačkis from Lithuania, van Luyn from Netherlands, Danneels from Brussels, and Murphy O'Connor from London “met in the so-called Villa Nazareth in Rome, the home of Cardinal Silvestrini who was then no longer eligible to vote; they then discussed in secret a tactic of how to avoid the election of Joseph Ratzinger.”
Following the revelations by Danneels, a somewhat confused letter appeared from the diocese of St Gallen that partially retracted the claim that the group had influenced the resignation of Pope Benedict. The letter did confirm that the election of Jorge Bergoglio as Pope Francis in 2013 “corresponded to the goal pursued in St Gallen,” noting that this information came from Cardinal Danneels’ biography. “This is confirmed by Bishop Ivo Fürer,” the letter continued, who said that his “joy at the choice of the Argentinian was never made a secret.”
Danneels' biography says that the group started forming well before 1996. In 1982 Danneels attended meetings of the Council of the European Bishops' Conferences (CCEE) for the first time and met Martini and Ivo Fürer, who is described as “the zealous and discreet secretary of CCEE”. Martini took the reins of the CCEE in 1987; his leadership was decidedly in the liberal direction, and by 1993 the pope had decided that the group’s secretary was to be a bishop appointed by Rome, that curial prelates should attend the meetings and finally that the venue should be moved to Rome.
In 1993 the pope transferred CCEE presidency from Martini’s hands into those of Miroslav Vlk, the archbishop of Prague. It is possible this was prompted by the fall of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of the Soviet Union, with the desirability of involving Eastern European bishops. Vlk would have been unlikely to be interested in the type of reform dear to the hearts of Martini and Hume.
These changes hampered the CCEE as a vehicle for liberal pressure on the Church and it was from this period that Danneels disengaged himself from it. The St Gallen group began meeting in 1996 at the invitation of Ivo Fürer – who had been appointed bishop of St Gallen in 1995 – three years after this change of management.
Later, the two Danneels biographers partly retracted their description of the St Gallen group as a liberal “lobby” group. But even so the same ambiguity could be detected as in the letter from the St Gallen diocese which they quoted in their statements. Pentin reported on 26 September 2015 that the biographers repeated the official letter from the diocese, saying the “election of Bergoglio corresponded with the aims of St. Gallen; on that there is no doubt. And the outline of its programme was that of Danneels and his confreres who had been discussing it for ten years.” They said the failure to elect Bergoglio in 2005 led to the disbanding of the group. Pentin points out, however, that some of St Gallen members or their close associates were later named by the English papal biographer Austen Ivereigh, as part of “Team Bergoglio”, the group of cardinals who finally brought the St Gallen plan to fruition at the Conclave of 2013.



  1. The Lutherferian of Our Time:

    "Francis-Bergoglio, once again showing himself to be a Protestant, celebrated the Feast of Christ the King on the wrong day, the last Sunday of November.

    Pope Pius XI had instituted this feast in 1925 to be a public, social, and official declaration of the royal rights of our Lord Jesus Christ as the Word Incarnate and as Redeemer -- as the

    King of kings and the crown of all the Saints.

    This feast acknowledges Christ's complete dominion over us and our complete dependence upon Him.

    On October 31, 1517, Martin Luther had posted his his 95 Theses on the door of the Wittenberg Palace church, marking the start of the Protestant Revolt in Germany.

    "Reformation" Day is thus placed on the last Sunday in October, so Pope Pius XI in his Apostolic Brief Quas primas of October 11,

    1925, set the Feast of Christ the King there to counter Protestantism's heresies.

    But the New Order calendar of 1969, which was based upon Protestant models,

    violated this Catholic principle by moving the feast to the

    last Sunday in November to avoid embarrassing the Protestant heretics.

    By the decree of Pope Pius XI, the Act of Dedication of the Human Race to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus is to be recited on this day before the Most Blessed Sacrament exposed, to be followed by the Litany of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

    The Arch-heretic Martin Luther detested both of these devotions. He denied the doctrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament and hated the devotion to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus..." -Zenet

  2. As much as I find this article disheartening, the enlightenment is very appreciated. I still stand with ONLY PRAYER will dissolve the evil that has succumbed the Vatican. She will never 'cease' to exist since Jesus promised that in 'the gates of hell shall not destroy Her'. The 'ride' is not an easy one and we must PRAY AND PRAY much for ALL OUR PRIESTS that are SINCERELY FIGHTING AGAINST this abomination and refuse to involve themselves with such nonsense.

    The Hope in Heaven with GREAT gratitude to ALL THE PRIESTS that have gotten me this far on my spiritual journey, I am saddened that a lot of the 'higher ups' if you will, give such disregard to eternity, but then again, when one works for satan, NOW is only of importance. Poor souls.

  3. Francis is to "humble" to be dictatorial.lol.

  4. He is a deceiver, two faced human being.

  5. The snake. He is truly a liar. Satan is a liar. Frances follows Satan so liar and snake he is. His works and actions scream scream his true self. So many people so much blindness. I have to pray like I have never prayed before.

  6. urge every friend here to read this book: THE GREAT CONTROVERSY


  7. Jesus has left this institution. Yes, He said it would never be destroyed, but the church is in the hearts of each individual, not a heirarchy that is so influenced by the freemasonic/luciferian agenda that the presence of Christ HAD to leave! This book proves that God did not anoint (anti)pope francis, but must have given that anointing to another. But who?? If people truly want the Truth, God will lead them to it. On His terms though, of course. Long story short: End Times, people! Things are different now. And a hint for good measure: the prophecy of the popes.
