FRANCIS DEFENDS MALTA OFFICIAL WHO DISTRIBUTED BIRTH CONTROL

Pope Defends the Dismissed Grand Chancellor of the Order of Malta – and Perhaps Further Shows His Bias

Christopher Lamb, writing for the professedly progressivist Catholic weekly newspaper The Tabletreported on 5 January that Pope Francis has explicitly requested from the Order of Malta that it retain as its Grand Chancellor the German Knight, Albrecht von Boeselager. According to Lamb:

Cardinal Raymond Burke and the Knights of Malta’s leader defied the wishes of Pope Francis and the Holy See when they sacked a senior figure in a row about the distribution of condoms. Letters seen by The Tablet reveal that Francis specifically requested [that] no one be dismissed in a dispute that saw Albrecht von Boeselager thrown out as Grand Chancellor and then suspended from the Order. [my emphasis]

Lamb then quotes a letter sent to Matthew Festing, the head of the Order of Malta, and written by Secretary of State, Cardinal Pietro Parolin, in which he explains that Pope Francis does not wish the dismissal of von Boeselager to take place:

“I wish first of all to reiterate that these measures [the sacking and suspension of Boeselager] must not be attributed to the will of the Pope or his directives,” the cardinal wrote in a letter to Festing on 21 December. “As I expressed to you in my letter of 12 December 2016: ‘as far as the use and diffusion of methods and means contrary to the moral law, His Holiness has asked for dialogue as the way to deal with, and resolve, eventual problems. But he has never spoken of sending someone away!’” [my emphasis]

This surprising insistence upon the way of dialogue instead of dismissal is especially astonishing to observers when compared to the recent dismissal of three CDF priestsand to the refusal of Pope Francis even to give reasons for his peremptory orders to Cardinal Gerhard Müller in this case.

To return to Cardinal Parolin now. According to The Tablet, the cardinal also informed Matthew Festing, the Order’s Grand Master, that Pope Francis does very well and unmistakably “have authority in this case,” even though the Order is in several ways and, as such, an independent organization:

Cardinal Parolin says Francis would like the conflict to be resolved but raises the possibility the Holy See could take further steps against the Order – and given the defiance [sic] of the Pope in this matter, the positions of both Cardinal Burke and Festing are under pressure. [my emphasis]

What this news report shows to us is that, in this case, Pope Francis shows himself to be eager to defend a dubious man – and to threaten those who have dismissed him – who is himself known to have allowed and promoted the use of condoms and contraceptives (which are also, in many cases, abortifacients). As LifeSiteNews has recently reported, von Boeselager clearly violated in his actions Catholic moral teaching:

The NGO documents uncovered by the Lepanto Institute show that von Boeselager oversaw the distribution of condoms and oral contraceptives while he was Grand Hospitaller, the person in charge of the charitable work of the Order, through its international charity Malteser International. Documents from the World Health Organization, Three Disease Fund, Save the Children, and UNAIDS all show that Malteser was responsible for distributing and promoting contraception. The distribution and promotion of contraception were part of Malteser’s role as a grantee and partner of these organizations, the documents indicate.

What this incident shows is that Pope Francis himself refuses to use stricter chastening methods when it is about those who promote a laxer or more liberalizing moral agenda. The same applies to the recently reported incident where Pope Francis re-instated a laicized priest who had been found guilty of grave sexual abuse but whom the pope, in 2014, later called back into the active priesthood where he remains. As Michael Dougherty himself writes:

Pope Francis and his cardinal allies have been known to interfere with CDF’s [Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith] judgments on abuse cases. This intervention has become so endemic to the system that cases of priestly abuse in Rome are now known to have two sets of distinctions. The first is guilty or innocent. The second is “with cardinal friends” or “without cardinal friends.” And indeed, Pope Francis is apparently pressing ahead with his reversion of abuse practices even though the cardinals who are favorable to this reform of reform have already brought him trouble because of their friends. Consider the case of Fr. Mauro Inzoli. Inzoli lived in a flamboyant fashion and had such a taste for flashy cars that he earned the nickname “Don Mercedes.” He was also accused of molesting children. He allegedly abused minors in the confessional. He even went so far as to teach children that sexual contact with him was legitimated by scripture and their faith. When his case reached CDF, he was found guilty. And in 2012, under the papacy of Pope Benedict, Inzoli was defrocked. But Don Mercedes was “with cardinal friends,” we have learned. Cardinal Coccopalmerio andMonsignor Pio Vito Pinto [sic], now dean of the Roman Rota, both intervened on behalf of Inzoli, and Pope Francis returned him to the priestly state in 2014, inviting him to a “a life of humility and prayer.” These strictures seem not to have troubled Inzoli too much. In January 2015, Don Mercedes participated in a conference on the family in Lombardy. [my emphasis]

So here we have a confirmation, and in two cases – one a promoter of contraception (and more), the other a child abuser – where Pope Francis rejects a sterner chastening and punishment of the gravely responsible persons. However, in the recent case of the Congregation for Doctrine, Pope Francis has shown his unexplained (and likely irreversible) austerity: he has ordered the prompt removal of three well-trained and well-respected priests from their dicastery offices.

Moreover, the German Catholic newspaper, Die Tagespost, has now confirmed, on 4 January, the earlier story as reported by Marco Tosatti about the three priests who were dismissed from the CDF, and this new confirmation was made on the basis of their own distinct sources in Rome:

As is to be learned from the Vatican, the report of the Italian Vatican specialist, Marco Tossati, at the end of December [2016], according to which Pope Francis enforced the dismissal of three employees of the Congregation for the Doctrine, corresponds with the facts.

Furthermore, in this context of the pope’s own recent conduct, Die Tagespost even surprisingly uses the expression about his “rather authoritarian style of leadership” and then hints at signs that also show that “the nervousness in the inner circle of Francis and in himself is growing.”

Nevertheless, does it not astonish us somewhat that the German Bishops’ Conference’s website has immediately rebukedDie Tagespost for its alleged attempt “to silence” the “reformer pope”? That indignantly huffy article, published on the official website of the German Bishops, katholisch.de, even closes with these rather meaningful, if not celebratory, words:

The pope is having more and more difficulties. Inasmuch as only a few stand as clearly at his side – in his earnest grappling for an open and merciful Church – as Cardinal Reinhard Marx himself: the President of the German Bishops’ Conference.

    Of course he does. He has said so before with regards Zika and I was certain then that his utilitrian view of life extends to all forms of contraception. In fact, I think we will find out later (and we will of course not be shocked but confirmed) that he would support abortion.

    Pope Francis and crew have a serious optics problem: they can’t seem to realize that no one is fooled by their ‘investigation’ that this is rather an obvious attempt to besmirch Cardinal Burke. The former Grand Chancellor von Boeselager should have been removed from office and there is no defense for not removing him. None.

    “…the use and diffusion of methods and means contrary to the moral law, His Holiness has asked for dialogue as the way to deal with, and resolve, eventual problems.”

    Give me a break! What a crock of crap, dialogue doesn’t bring justice to the grave evil that has been done, nor does it promote mercy. Furthermore, these are not eventual problems these are real problems because of what von Boeselager has done, and the solution is the removal from his office by his superiors who have every right and the authority to do.

      The extended papacy is a false innovation of the usurpers of VII to gain power and shouldn’t be accepted. There is only one Seat of Peter not two & only one that can claim infallibility, so which one is it then?

      Well, it most certainly is NOT Bergoglio.

        Then why doesn’t the other one speak up? It has recently been reported that Archbishop Gänswein is the go-between PF & PB. Is he also the gaoler? Maybe the hope was that PB would have passed on by now & an illicit election would fade into the sunset?

        • Avatar

          Perhaps because he has been blackmailed. And, perhaps he stayed in the Vatican because he has full diplomatic immunity. I really do not know. All I do know is that plenty of evidence is now readily available that points to coercion and/or blackmail by the St. Gallen Mafia cardinals.

          • Avatar

            There is certainly a valid & disturbing question mark regarding PB’s resignation which is not answered by stating that the people of Rome have accepted him as their Bishop. The pope is overall ruler of the most prestigious institution on earth founded by Jesus Christ Himself governing all Catholics – not just those living in Rome. When the St. Gallen Group (Mafia) came out declaring a victory in getting ‘their man’ elected it sent shivers down my spine. How can such an outcome be tolerated? Let’s hope that PB outlives PF & that we shall be afforded the true reason for his hasty resignation. What cannot be tolerated is the innovation of an ‘expanded papacy’ & this should be cleared-up by the CDF whose job it is to verify such announcements. Cardinal Müller should not hesitate to make the correction. It’s time for all the Cardinals to step out of their comfort zone in favour of upholding Christ’s Word in toto.

            Hello Ana,

            I implore your not finding any solace, not one iota, from Pope Ratzinger. Watch him carefully since the election of Pope Bergoglio, both in his action and inaction, words and lack there of. Read his own words (  http://www.angelusnews.com/art… ) and watch his embrace of Jorge Mario Bergoglio, both physically and intellectively. The man who once spoke of praying he be protected from the wolves, is himself one of them. In caritas.

            Hi Isabel – I also believe Benedict was deceived and pressured to resign. I think he was a very Holy Shepherd of the Church, who made a very grave error in resigning. I also believe that God is allowing this to happen for His own Good Purposes. I have wondered for a long time how the return of Jesus could be an act of true Justice, since it ends the possibility of redemption for those who refuse to repent, in other words that final generation would not have the opportunity to repent that all the others which preceded it from the time of the resurrection until the day of our Lord’s return had. I have come to the conclusion that in those final days open to Grace and Repentance, the choices we make are so clear that redemption is no longer possible at the time of Jesus’ return. And indeed this is exactly what it was like “as in the days of Noah” as our Lord warned would be upon that final generation. From this perspective it makes sense that from a Church lost in its own apostasy there would be a pope who himself was an apostate. And just as clearly there would be those who would speak out against him because their love for Jesus, and His Sacramental Church would far exceed their love for the Institutional Church, and any false sense of Mercy it would put forth. A mercy that would be based in a profane view of Mercy rather than the authentic Divine reality of Mercy which flows from God, not man. I pray for Benedict, and as I said have great hope that he will not remain silent any longer. Until then we should thank God for providing fearless warriors such as Cardinal Raymond Burke. The meaning of Mary’s appearance to the children of Fatima becomes clearer with each passing day. We live in the times she warned were coming. It would be wise for all of us to listen to this Heaven sent Messenger.

            If Benedict was “pressured” to resign, that is coercion, thus, making his resignation INVALID, and, hence, he is still pope. I have said for quite some time now that the facts have become public enough to affirm this. Clearly, I agree with you, the Church is in a real crisis.

            • Avatar

              Being “pressured” to do something does not eradicate free will and, therefore, responsibility. People are pressured all the time but are not “coerced” in any strict sense, and there is no evidence that Benedict was coerced. To this day, Benedict’s mental faculties are cogent and clear, and his resignation was and remains valid.

              Kevin, we will have to agree to disagree. There is plenty of evidence if we only have eyes to see and do a little research. I have done a lot of research and co-wrote with my friend (MyFaithRunsDeep, otherwise now publicly known as John J. Arechiga whom Mr. Matt at the Remnant has now published some of his work). Hopefully, an article will soon appear on Mr. Matt’s website. I would encourage you to visit the Remnant and read a few of the articles.

            I don’t think Benedict is even capable of speaking to this now. We’ll never know what made him resign, but I have always felt that he thought he was doing it for the good of the Church. God only knows what they threatened to do if he didn’t resign.

            And now this is infinitely worse than anybody, including BXVI, could ever have imagined.

            We are witnessing the greatest crisis that has ever faced the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. Francis is an historic figure, who will appear on the short list of those who rose to the highest levels of infamy. There is no way to overstate the damage he is doing to the souls of those rendered vulnerable to Apostasy over the past 50 years. Benedict must speak now or forever suffer the eternal penalty for remaining silent when he alone could restrain Francis and

          I have often wondered why Benedict has said that he only resigned the governance of the papal office- not the prayerful, spiritual side. Why? There is a reason for why he has said and done everything to date- most of which- in my opinion- does not match up to reality.

          Didn’t Steve have an article last year about a rarely heard apparition of Our Lady in the 1600’s in Latin America somewhere? The words I remember are about ‘one who keeps silent who should speak’ or something to that effect. At the time of reading it I thought how extremely relevant it is for today.Steve maybe we need to re-read that past story.

    If, as their mother, I had been as “merciful” to my children as Pope Francis seems intent on forcing our holy Mother Church to be, I would have lost custody of them to the government. It is not merciful to withhold the truth. It is not merciful to punish those who honestly do their work. It is not merciful to bully your opponents – even if you smile and kiss babies. About two years ago, I began to realize this is the pope of our chastisement. Now I realize he is also the tool to be used in the chastisement. At least we know who ultimately wins, but I feel concern for my children, nonetheless.

    The Tablet is quoted as saying that Burke DEFIED Francis by firing the grand chancellor. Based on what has been reported, this is a LIE. The initial letter from the Vatican and the follow up letter from the Vatican were both issued AFTER the firing. While the letters certainly indicated the Pope’s displeasure, it is a LIE to say that the firing was any kind of an act of defiance. Should be noted that neither letter from the Vatican CLAIMS that Francis was defied or disobeyed AT ALL. Besides, it was not an issue for the Vatican to interject itself into anyway.
    God bless Cardinal Burke. God bless this very illuminating article and Maike Hickson for the faithful reporting.
    So, tell me, what am I missing in my assessment of the Tablet?

    Hopefully by the end of this month PF will have a lot more to worry about than the dismissal of the Grand Chancellor von Boeselager. He will have to decide whether or not he can continue in the Papal Office while refusing to clarify his Papal Exhortation Amoris Laetitia which is leading to the corruption of Catholic teaching. Who knows, perhaps the very Seat of Peter upon which he presently sits may well be taken by the man he most disiikes at this moment, Cardinal Burke.

      Ana, as much as I’d love to see that scenario, Bergoglio is (a) not going to answer the dubia and (b) will be luxuriating in his five star hotel until he is carried out feet first. I honestly think he will move on to excommunications. He’s power crazed, nobody is opposing him very effectively, and he has a bunch of either self-assured or terrified flunkies behind him who would literally kill to keep him in power.

      Think about Hitler or Stalin – and they even had military opponents.

      No, something much worse is going to happen this year.

      Also, watch Fatima be taken over to be used as a vehicle for promoting Islam.

      • Avatar

        I don’t expect him to answer the Dubia but when the formal correction itself is issued & the further steps that may have to be taken, I hope that some sense of duty will prevail amongst his followers. It has been reported that a lot of them are keeping their distance since the bad-mouthing of the Cardinals & his use of vile language against rigid fundamentalists (Traditional Catholics). His mouthpieces also jumping to his support hasn’t gone down too well & his continued rampage of pontifical offices ousting the ‘conservatives’ in favour of liberals (usually of inferior intellect) is shaming the Papal Office & the Vatican Administration. There must come a point when sufficient Cardinals can take no more & fraternally request PF to step down. It would save embarrassment all round & just maybe save a glimmer of his unholy reputation when the history of these times comes to be written.

          Yes, I agree. I think our Lord needs to see more sacrifice from His prince’s of the Church.
          They have abandoned Him for too long, in love of their power and ego,( even a holy prelate can succumb to this). But some have remained throughout it all! May their holiness inspire others.

          You are charitable to Francis when you speak of saving him embarrassment all round
          And you are so right. He is our pope and deserves that compassion of trying to protect him from humiliation for his sake and that of our Church.

    The Grand Master of the SOVEREIGN Military Order of Malta has already made known his reply to the Secretariate of State where he labelled the Vatican’s ingerence in the Order’s internal affairs as “unacceptable”.
    I can’t imagine which are these “further steps” threat the Pope is alluding to.
    Excommunication? Laughable and grotesque…Card. Burke’s dismissal? Possible but everyone would understand that the main reason isn’t about his position in the Order of Malta and he would become the first martyr of Franci’s persecutions.
    Has anyone some better clues?

    Enough! Reality Check. The Pope is a heretic. What he continually espouses and promotes as magisterial teaching contradicts previous Popes and 2000 years of the magisterium. Divorce and the Eucharist are just the foot in the door for him. He cavorts with child killers and sodomites. They are next up for communion ( Bishops in US doing it for years and not a peep). Look for women Deacons. Married Preist. He has the apparent support of most Bishops and Cardinals. The infiltration is continuing. When most imams teach against the Koran is it still Islam? Where is the REAL CATHOLIC CHURCH? I see no relief from the present apostasy. If you hold to Tradition, Scripture, and the 2000 year old magisterium, what do you do? Where can you go? We are truly a minority. Most do not know or agree with him.

      The relief will come when 1) the Third Secret of Fatima is revealed (I.e. the exact words of Our Lady, NOT the Vision) and 2) when the Holy Father and all the bishops of the world consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Cf. www.fatima.org.

      Good evening, Parrish,
      Pope Bergoglio, from a res ipsa loquitur foundational understanding, is a false prophet, as he preaches a false gospel, while at once he inhabits a false (anti) church, all for the purposes of the Anti-Christ. One who preaches a false gospel cannot be within the True Church, One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic. The question remains open whether he is the False Prophet, which would cause us then to expect the existential manifestation of the person of the Anti-Christ. In caritas.

    Except for Burke, of course. He was removed from the Apostolic Signatura and “sent away” to Malta. Then there was the clearout at Cardinal Sarah’s Liturgy congregation a couple of months ago when all of the members were “sent away”. Then there was the case at the CDF a couple of days ago when three priests were “sent away”.

    It appears very much as if everything depends on exactly whom is being “sent away”. When the mood suits, Francis appears to be a big fan of “sending away” those whom he finds problematic.

    How is it that a man who becomes pope does not understand that contraceptives are abortifacients? How is it that a pope cannot see the grave scandal that exists to place a priest back into the public where he can, once again have access to vulnerable children.

    The Order of Malta should send a letter back to the Vatican clarifying that, to the contrary, they would never attribute such measures to the will of Pope Francis. They should clarify that the fact the Pope is against such measures actually serves as encouragement that the measures are on the right track; and that if the Pope were in favor of such measures, then they would seriously have to rethink them as potentially the wrong way to go.

      I think there may be another way of reading this. As I understand it the Grand Master asked Boeselager to resign and he refused. The Grand Master then ordered him to resign as a matter of obedience and went to the Pope and I understand that the Pope agreed with the Grand Master. But then Pope Francis had second thoughts and tried to back out – hence the above quote – i.e. ‘it wasn’t me who did the sacking’.

    If you see in the website of the Diocese of Crema (http://www.diocesidicrema.it/l… there is the Decree of June 26th, 2014 concerning Father Mauro Inzoli, whose title is “Truth and mercy” (Verità e misericordia). What is incredible is that the Bishop quotes in his Decree a text by Card. Kasper… Just note that Mauro Inzoli was a priest from CL (Comunione e Liberazione), which was a very conservative movement. Sounds very strange that in the last years the movement has completely changed, and is now more than supportive to Pope Francis. Should we assume that there are “other” reasons to this kind of change?

      Dear Cesare Baronio,

      I would, with humility, submit that what they demonstrate is the perspicacious development of the Hegelian Dialectic of Synthesis in its intellective understanding over time; as they are patient, and at once then, they apply masterfully the artful use of the double entendre’ in their praxis, as if in the hand of a maestro. People then ask, “how could they have changed so?”, when indeed they are who they are, as are we all. Only with God’s grace can we choose the good over the evil, each miserable one of us, each and every time our free will acts. They patently reject God’s grace, in a cacophony of howling and screeching, that gift both freely given and completely undeserved; as they hate Christ, while they continue to persecute Him even now, in His Mystical Body, His Bride, the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church, outside of which there is no salvation–extra ecclesia nulla salus. Although they know this as a deFide teaching of the Church, they reject it. As can only be understood from within that rejection of caritas as Caritas Himself, they have done the bidding of Lucifer in this life, as they have disseminated a false ecumenism, the likes of which would make Jacques Maritain now blush. They know unmitigated misery alone in this life, a precursor to the infinite and eternal desolation of self which awaits them, into eternity in hell. As misery so loves company, they tirelessly work to draw as many souls into the eternal perdition of fire as they can, to accompany them in the infinite abyss, each perfectly alone, yet perfectly tormented without Almighty God, for ever and for ever again. Pray, fast, and sacrifice for their miserable souls, as they cannot truly know what awaits them. In caritas.

        thanks a lot for your kind words. Unfortunately we are facing a real apostasy, as we never saw before.
        And this kind of apostasy is the worst one, because it comes from the chief of the Church, who is persecuting good people and complimenting bad people.

          You write far better English than I do Italian, as I am unilingual. We most certainly are amidst the greatest apostasy as this rests res ipsa loquitur, with the pontiff at the helm, either in the person of Bergoglio, or Ratzinger as the architect and enabler. For now choose your poison. The Dubia will soon clarify it for us or it would seem. In caritas.

    The last vicious gasp of the modernist Jacobins was to put this stupid moronic fool in the Papacy and bring such dishonor to the office by his sycophantic ass slobbering on all the heretics and false religions the world over and enabling adultery and faggotry to be talked about in polite company. The “smoke of Satan” has entered the sanctuary- how can it get any worse, and we know it will. Where did this generation of blind fools come from, this imbecile was born in 1937, and all his confreres and collaborators in the Catholic Church’s suicide are all on deaths door. Good riddance you loser, there are other Popes in Hell- you’ll have good company.

      Hello Mike,
      Jorge Mario Bergoglio was ordained in 1969. The same year that the “church of Satan” was formed in San Francisco by Anton LaVey. The same year that the Novus Ordo Missae was forced upon Christ’s Mystical Body, His Church. The mass of the “religion of man”, Freemasonic from its utter essence as it was contrived by a son of Freemasonry, hence Lucifer himself, Annibale Bugnini. That ideological mass was arguably the wellspring of the anti-Church, which would rise up from the very vineyard of the One, True Church of Jesus the Christ, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic. The diabolical masquerade, the writ large deception, seems to have found its nascent genesis in 1969, which is a special year for the minions of hell to be known in their “numerology”, hidden right before our eyes, as “1969” contains three 6’s with the inversion of the two 9’s. Lastly Mike, Jorge Mario Bergoglio was actually born on Dec. 17, 1936. If you look to Saint Maria Faustina Kawalska’s Diary, entries 823 and 824, you will read specifically what she suffered on that very day and how she offered that day for priests. She had never known such suffering possible both interior and exterior. She spoke of “one mystery which unites me with the Lord”, which no one else even in eternity knew of for His purposes. Could it be the mystery of the son of perdition or his false prophet? No one can know. As an aside, the hedonistic, sex and drug fest, “Woodstock”, also happened in that incredibly darkened year of 1969. In caritas.

    Seems to me the Order of Malta should ignore whatever the Pope says. What actual power does he have over them anyway as long as they control their own assets? Asset control is the key to independence being that Pope Francis no longer is capable of moral authority.

    Let’s take an example. What would Steve Skojec do if he was excommunicated by Pope Francis for being responsible for the critical blog One Peter Five? If it were me I would immediately set about telling the world about it as another example of a Pope who had gone over the edge.

      A case is building up against PF. Tyranny in the Vatican will not do. You can’t bring Marxist policies into the Papal Office. All popes prior to this one fought such ideology & that must be continued. Also the fight against Masonic practices. The pope must at all times uphold Catholic Doctrine only – he has no other role but to lead his flock towards Heaven, not in the other direction. This isn’t happening so he is a failure & must be replaced at once. No more prevarication – the Hierarchy must act & tell us not to follow him. Then he will go.

    Inzoli I also read he was found guilty in an Italian Court of abusing over 8 children and he told the victims what he was doing wasn’t wrong. This bling pedophile was laicized. It is corrupt to revoke it. Francis at 80 is acting like dictator Peron and also acting erratically. He has to go! Concerning the Knights of Malta. They are a sovereign country because of territory they retained when Napoleon occupied Malta and the Francis needs to back off. He has no jurisdiction .

      That’s the third reading for the Second Thursday of the Great Fast (Lent). Isaiah 6: 1-12, Genesis 5: 1-24 and Proverbs 6: 3-20 are the three readings for the day (Ukrainian Byzantine Catholic calendar).

        He is either ignorant or a lier. Either should be sufficient to disqualify one from public office, especially his. It not these he is either an ignorant or willing tool of the Devil.
