Was Pope Benedict SWIFTed?

Posted on September 30, 2015 by evensong

I recently read an interesting item  regarding Pope Benedict XVI’s resignation, on Maurizio Blondet’s blog.  That link takes you to his full article, excerpts of which I reproduce here. Excuse the poor translation.

From Maurizio Blondet, “Ratzinger Could Neither Sell Nor Buy”.

When, in February 2013, Pope Benedict XVI resigned suddenly and inexplicably, the IOR (Vatican Bank) had been excluded from SWIFT; thus, all the Vatican payments were made impossible,  and the Church was treated as a state-terrorist (secondum America), such as Iran. It was the economic ruin, well prepared by a violent campaign against the IOR, which was confirmed by the opening of criminal investigations of the Italian judiciary (which never fails to obey certain international orders).

Few know what SWIFT is (the acronym stands for Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication – Company Interbank Financial Telecommunication): in theory, is a world “clearing house”  uniting 10,500 banks 215 countries. In fact, it is the most occult and sole center of American financial power-globalist, stick to blackmail on which the hegemony of the dollar, the most powerful means of economic espionage and political (to the detriment especially for us Europeans) and means by which the most feared global finance crushes legs to states that do not obey. (…)

The Belgian site Media-Presse (SWIFT is based in Belgium) in giving the news of the SWIFT alternative launched by Beijing and Moscow, April 5, recounted as an example:

When a bank or territory is excluded from the system, as it did in the case of the Vatican in the days before the resignation of Benedict XVI in February 2013, all transactions are blocked. Without waiting for the election of Pope Bergoglio, the Swift system has been unlocked the announcement of the resignation of Benedict XVI.

This explains and justifies the unprecedented resignation of Ratzinger, that many of us have (considered) an act of cowardice; the Church was treated as a state “terrorist”, but worse –  note that the dozen banks falling into the hands of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria “are not excluded from SWIFT” and continue to be able to make international transactions – and the Vatican finances could no longer pay the nunciature, to convey transport missions – in fact, the same ATM of Vatican City had in fact been blocked. The Church of Benedict could not “neither sell nor buy”, its economic life had counted the hours.

It just has to sign (indicate) what Saura Plesio says: Ratzinger  “who fought against the prevailing relativism, never would accept” openings “on gay and gender policies. He never would prostrate to the “world” (and globalism) as this pope (Bergoglio), which competes with the prevailing secularism of the EU to create a form of “divorce sacramental” through “the short cancellation”.  He never would have (been) paid to do the great farce of Lampedusa made by his successor, which moreover is not even its territory, but the Italian state. The great powers have globalists quickly and Ratzinger was a blatant obstruction, a slowdown on their meteoric trajectory.”

How quickly was implemented the expulsion of Ratzinger also suggests that a particular drew out Luciano Canfora. Sympathetic unrepentant communist, but good historian of the Roman and Latin scholar, he has noticed in the motu proprio with which Benedetti has justified his resignation with age (“worsening Aetate “) a series of errors of Latin elementary errors in the concordance of the cases, as to blush a schoolboy. Now Ratzinger can not have committed these errors. The text was written by others, and he was sent away from the Vatican blatantly, helicopter resumed broadcast worldwide?

Immediately after his departure,  SWIFT unlocks Vatican transactions, reopens ATMs, back to the honor of the world the IOR. They did not wait until Bergoglio’s election; all it took was the expulsion of the “white terror”.

In the salons and unreachable between Wall Street and Washington and London, already they knew that the conclave would give the throne to a modernist, one they could trust. Why? The SWIFT sanction had been coordinated with the “conspirators” in purple, led by Carlo Maria Martini (a cardinal who requested euthanasia for himself, remember ..) (1) Bergoglio had marked as their candidate for years? There was an agreement of the conspirators with a strong external power, which are close to ideology? [NOTE: Here he refers to the St. Gallen Group, or Mafia-Club as per Cdl Danneels]

Maybe the election of Bergoglio will not be invalid. But it understands that the resignation of Ratzinger is – was forced to come down from the throne of Peter …. The ambiguous behavior of the same Ratzinger,  maintaining  the white robe and the title of the Holy Father, can confirm it: he wants to give a signal to those who can understand, without being able to say, that was driven out, not gone voluntarily. Now, as a marriage is void if one of the spouses has signed under duress, it will also be a Pope who surrender under duress, and also knows that he is Pope ….

This hypothesis explains very well the triumphal reception that Bergoglio received in America, the UN, Obama, the standing ovation in Congress – already, because then a reigning pope was invited to the US Congress? The thing is very strange and unusual. The relationship of Washington with the Vatican have always been from bad to very bad; not only for Protestant hatred against “popery.” Now, they have become excellent. The Pope is ‘willing mediator of the United States in Cuba’,  its the “radical battles”, opens the new morality compulsory, short stops being the antagonist moral that “this world” hates.

That would explain also the astute management to win the sympathy of progressive media; and the brutal but accurate “purge” that Bergoglio (with his council of Eight) has worked in the Vatican, as if he had in his hand a list long prepared. His willingness to dissolve Catholicism (into) Protestantism in general, vacuous, secular and worldly …

Bergoglio enjoins Christians to accept more immigrants, without limits, with total “welcome” and charity – Well: “With an official statement, signed by as many as 28 different allegiances (including as many as eight French and one Italian, the Grand Lodge ‘ Italy ), the Masons call on European governments to accept immigrants, indeed to embrace more and more. Thus demonstrating a convergence of intent with few precedents not only each other, but also with respect to the new strategies adopted by the Member States “(Correspondenza Romana, 11 September). here he presents the evidence from the Masons themselves. Rorate posted on this earlier this year.

It’s no lie that some cardinal contexts not elect Bergoglio, but invalidates the resignation of Benedict: money is at stake, and the risk of being at the head of a Church “holy” but put into misery by SWIFT definitely makes’ hesitation also the more traditionalCardinals .

As a believer, it calms me this idea: we still have a Pontifex, although speechless. The promise made to Peter is still maintained; the apostolic line is not interrupted, given the sacraments remain valid. And this only matters in the storm.

As men of this generation, we have better identified the false lamb of Revelation 13, with the power to starve and to block, so that “no one could buy or sell” without “The mark on the hand and forehead.” SWIFT, and the bank number (BIC) revealed even more clearly the essence of anti-Christ, and the true purpose of globalization. And you do not call it more conspiracy … But what plot? Here are acting openly, blatantly, without hiding more – and very quickly. Because he “knows he has little time.”

A few days ago, the Fed Chairman Janet Yellen has suffered a sudden illness as she spoke at the University of Massachusetts. On that occasion, as if by accident, we learned from the newspapers who would replace if not possible: the number two, Stanley Fischer, who was governor of the Central Bank of Israel until 2013, and has left that position to assist the Yellen . Even more fans pretend.

Apocalypse 13: 11-17: [11] And I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns, like a lamb, and he spoke as a dragon. [12] And he executed all the power of the former beast in his sight; and he caused the earth, and them that dwell therein, to adore the first beast, whose wound to death was healed. [13] And he did great signs, so that he made also fire to come down from heaven unto the earth in the sight of men. [14] And he seduced them that dwell on the earth, for the signs, which were given him to do in the sight of the beast, saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make the image of the beast, which had the wound by the sword, and lived. [15] And it was given him to give life to the image of the beast, and that the image of the beast should speak; and should cause, that whosoever will not adore the image of the beast, should be slain. [16] And he shall make all, both little and great, rich and poor, freemen and bondmen, to have a character in their right hand, or on their foreheads. [17] And that no man might buy or sell, but he that hath the character, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”


1) Painful truth foreshadowed in the letter of the nephew of Cardinal, Giulia Facchini Martini, published in the “Corriere della Sera” on September 4. The text reads: “You were afraid, not of death itself, but the act of dying, of death and of all that precedes it. We talked together in March and I, as a lawyer I also deal with the protection of the weak, I’d be called upon to clearly express your wishes and the care that you wanted to receive. And so it was. You were afraid, afraid above all of losing control of your body, to die suffocated. (…) With the shared awareness that the time was approaching, when you did it more, you asked to be asleep. So a doctor with two clear eyes and clear, an expert care that accompany death, you sedated “(Mario Palmaro and Alessandro Gnocchi With the death of Cardinal Martini was canonized theology of the doubt, Correspondence Roman, 12 September 2012).

Dear Readers, note that SWIFT is based in Belgium, home of Cardinal Danneels – and also Marc Dutroux who steadfastly held that he was only a henchman for prominent men in international finance. Our post, “The Vatican’s Lavender Heel” shows that the Vatican’s Lavender Lobby is linked to its international financial corruption. The two go together. The most recent homosexual orgy also involved drug smuggling using a car with Vatican license plates to avoid searches. For the latest on the Vatican’s most recent homosexual orgy see this post.
 But events are hastening to their conclusion….

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++AN OPEN LETTER TO THE CARDINALS OF THE HOLY ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH

Recently many educated Catholic observers, including bishops and priests, have decried the confusion in doctrinal statements about faith or morals made from the Apostolic See at Rome and by the putative Bishop of Rome, Pope Francis. Some devout, faithful and thoughtful Catholics have even suggested that he be set aside as a heretic, a dangerous purveyor of error, as recently mentioned in a number of reports. Claiming heresy on the part of a man who is a supposed Pope, charging material error in statements about faith or morals by a putative Roman Pontiff, suggests and presents an intervening prior question about his authenticity in that August office of Successor of Peter as Chief of The Apostles, i.e., was this man the subject of a valid election by an authentic Conclave of The Holy Roman Church?  This is so because each Successor of Saint Peter enjoys the Gift of Infallibility.  So, before one even begins to talk about excommunicating such a prelate, one must logically examine whether this person exhibits the uniformly good and safe fruit of Infallibility.

If he seems repeatedly to engage in material error, that first raises the question of the validity of his election because one expects an authentically-elected Roman Pontiff miraculously and uniformly to be entirely incapable of stating error in matters of faith or morals.  So to what do we look to discern the invalidity of such an election?  His Holiness, Pope John Paul II, within His massive legacy to the Church and to the World, left us with the answer to this question.  The Catholic faithful must look back for an answer to a point from where we have come—to what occurred in and around the Sistine Chapel in March 2013 and how the fruits of those events have generated such widespread concern among those people of magisterial orthodoxy about confusing and, or, erroneous doctrinal statements which emanate from The Holy See.

His Apostolic Constitution (Universi Dominici Gregis) which governed the supposed Conclave in March 2013 contains quite clear and specific language about the invalidating effect of departures from its norms.  For example, Paragraph 76 states:  “Should the election take place in a way other than that prescribed in the present Constitution, or should the conditions laid down here not be observed, the election is for this very reason null and void, without any need for a declaration on the matter; consequently, it confers no right on the one elected.”

From this, many believe that there is probable cause to believe that Monsignor Jorge Mario Bergoglio was never validly elected as the Bishop of Rome and Successor of Saint Peter—he never rightly took over the office of Supreme Pontiff of the Holy Roman Catholic Church and therefore he does not enjoy the charism of Infallibility.  If this is true, then the situation is dire because supposed papal acts may not be valid or such acts are clearly invalid, including supposed appointments to the college of electors itself.

Only valid cardinals can rectify our critical situation through privately (secretly) recognizing the reality of an ongoing interregnum and preparing for an opportunity to put the process aright by obedience to the legislation of His Holiness, Pope John Paul II, in that Apostolic Constitution, Universi Dominici Gregis.  While thousands of the Catholic faithful do understand that only the cardinals who participated in the events of March 2013 within the Sistine Chapel have all the information necessary to evaluate the issue of election validity, there was public evidence sufficient for astute lay faithful to surmise with moral certainty that the March 2013 action by the College was an invalid conclave, an utter nullity.

What makes this understanding of Universi Dominici Gregisparticularly cogent and plausible is the clear Promulgation Clause at the end of this Apostolic Constitution and its usage of the word “scienter” (“knowingly”).  The Papal Constitution Universi Dominici Gregis thus concludes definitively with these words:  “.   .   .   knowingly or unknowingly, in any way contrary to this Constitution.”  (“.   .   .   scienter vel inscienter contra hanc Constitutionem fuerint excogitata.”)  [Note that His Holiness, Pope Paul VI, had a somewhat similar promulgation clause at the end of his corresponding, now abrogated, Apostolic Constitution, Romano Pontifici Eligendo, but his does not use “scienter”, but rather uses “sciens” instead. This similar term of sciens in the earlier abrogated Constitution has an entirely different legal significance than scienter.] This word, “scienter”, is a legal term of art in Roman law, and in canon law, and in Anglo-American common law, and in each system, scienter has substantially the same significance, i.e., “guilty knowledge” or willfully knowing, criminal intent.

Thus, it clearly appears that Pope John Paul II anticipated the possibility of criminal activity in the nature of a sacrilege against a process which He intended to be purely pious, private, sacramental, secret and deeply spiritual, if not miraculous, in its nature. This contextual reality reinforced in the Promulgation Clause, combined with:  (1) the tenor of the whole document; (2) some other provisions of the document, e.g., Paragraph 76; (3) general provisions of canon law relating to interpretation, e.g., Canons 10 & 17; and, (4) the obvious manifest intention of the Legislator, His Holiness, Pope John Paul II, tends to establish beyond a reasonable doubt the legal conclusion that Monsignor Bergoglio was never validly elected Roman Pontiff.

This is so because:1.  Communication of any kind with the outside world, e.g., communication did occur between the inside of the Sistine Chapel and anyone outside, including a television audience, before, during or even immediately after the Conclave;2.   Any political commitment to “a candidate” and any “course of action” planned for The Church or a future pontificate, such as the extensive decade-long “pastoral” plans conceived by the Sankt Gallen hierarchs; and,3.  Any departure from the required procedures of the conclave voting process as prescribed and known by a cardinal to have occurred:each was made an invalidating act, and if scienter (guilty knowledge) was present, also even a crime on the part of any cardinal or other actor, but, whether criminal or not, any such act or conduct violating the norms operated absolutely, definitively and entirely against the validity of all of the supposed Conclave proceedings.

Quite apart from the apparent notorious violations of the prohibition on a cardinal promising his vote, e.g., commitments given and obtained by cardinals associated with the so-called “Sankt Gallen Mafia,” other acts destructive of conclave validity occurred.  Keeping in mind that Pope John Paul II specifically focused Universi Dominici Gregis on “the seclusion and resulting concentration which an act so vital to the whole Church requires of the electors” such that “the electors can more easily dispose themselves to accept the interior movements of the Holy Spirit,” even certain openly public media broadcasting breached this seclusion by electronic broadcasts outlawed by Universi Dominici Gregis.  These prohibitions include direct declarative statements outlawing any use of television before, during or after a conclave in any area associated with the proceedings, e.g.:  “I further confirm, by my apostolic authority, the duty of maintaining the strictest secrecy with regard to everything that directly or indirectly concerns the election process itself.” Viewed in light of this introductory preambulary language of Universi Dominici Gregis and in light of the legislative text itself, even the EWTN camera situated far inside the Sistine Chapel was an immediately obvious non-compliant  act which became an open and notorious invalidating violation by the time when this audio-visual equipment was used to broadcast to the world the preaching after the “Extra Omnes”.  While these blatant public violations of Chapter IV of Universi Dominici Gregis actuate the invalidity and nullity of the proceedings themselves, nonetheless in His great wisdom, the Legislator did not disqualify automatically those cardinals who failed to recognize these particular offenses against sacred secrecy, or even those who, with scienter, having recognized the offenses and having had some power or voice in these matters, failed or refused to act or to object against them:  “Should any infraction whatsoever of this norm occur and be discovered, those responsible should know that they will be subject to grave penalties according to the judgment of the future Pope.”  [Universi Dominici Gregis, ¶55]

No Pope apparently having been produced in March 2013, those otherwise valid cardinals who failed with scienter to act on violations of Chapter IV, on that account alone would nonetheless remain voting members of the College unless and until a new real Pope is elected and adjudges them.  

Thus, those otherwise valid cardinals who may have been compromised by violations of secrecy can still participate validly in the “clean-up of the mess” while addressing any such secrecy violations with an eventual new Pontiff.  In contrast, the automatic excommunication of those who politicized the sacred conclave process, by obtaining illegally, commitments from cardinals to vote for a particular man, or to follow a certain course of action (even long before the vacancy of the Chair of Peter as Vicar of Christ), is established not only by the word, “scienter,” in the final enacting clause, but by a specific exception, in this case, to the general statement of invalidity which therefore reinforces the clarity of intention by Legislator that those who apply the law must interpret the general rule as truly binding.  Derived directly from Roman law, canonical jurisprudence provides this principle for construing or interpreting legislation such as this Constitution, Universi Dominici Gregis.  Expressed in Latin, this canon of interpretation is:   “Exceptio probat regulam in casibus non exceptis.”  (The exception proves the rule in cases not excepted.)  In this case, an exception from invalidity for acts of simony reinforces the binding force of the general principle of nullity in cases of other violations. Therefore, by exclusion from nullity and invalidity legislated in the case of simony: “If — God forbid — in the election of the Roman Pontiff the crime of simony were to be perpetrated, I decree and declare that all those guilty thereof shall incur excommunication latae sententiae.  At the same time I remove the nullity or invalidity of the same simoniacal provision, in order that — as was already established by my Predecessors — the validity of the election of the Roman Pontiff may not for this reason be challenged.”  

His Holiness made an exception for simony. Exceptio probat regulam in casibus non exceptis.  The clear exception from nullity and invalidity for simony proves the general rule that other violations of the sacred process certainly do and did result in the nullity and invalidity of the entire conclave. Comparing what Pope John Paul II wrote in His Constitution on conclaves with the Constitution which His replaced, you can see that, with the exception of simony, invalidity became universal. 

In the corresponding paragraph of what Pope Paul VI wrote, he specifically confined the provision declaring conclave invalidity to three (3) circumstances described in previous paragraphs within His constitution, Romano Pontfici Eligendo.  No such limitation exists in Universi Dominici Gregis.  See the comparison both in English and Latin below:Romano Pontfici Eligendo, 77. Should the election be conducted in a manner different from the three procedures described above (cf. no. 63 ff.) or without the conditions laid down for each of the same, it is for this very reason null and void (cf. no. 62), without the need for any declaration, and gives no right to him who has been thus elected. [Romano Pontfici Eligendo, 77:  “Quodsi electio aliter celebrata fuerit, quam uno e tribus modis, qui supra sunt dicti (cfr. nn. 63 sqq.), aut non servatis condicionibus pro unoquoque illorum praescriptis, electio eo ipso est nulla et invalida (cfr. n. 62) absque ulla declaratione, et ita electo nullum ius tribuit .”] as compared with:Universi Dominici Gregis, 76:  “Should the election take place in a way other than that prescribed in the present Constitution, or should the conditions laid down here not be observed, the election is for this very reason null and void, without any need for a declaration on the matter; consequently, it confers no right on the one elected.”  [Universi Dominici Gregis, 76:  “Quodsi electio aliter celebrata fuerit, quam haec Constitutio statuit, aut non servatis condicionibus pariter hic praescriptis, electio eo ipso est nulla et invalida absque ulla declaratione, ideoque electo nullum ius tribuit.”]Of course, this is not the only feature of the Constitution or aspect of the matter which tends to establish the breadth of invalidity.

 Faithful must hope and pray that only those cardinals whose status as a valid member of the College remains intact will ascertain the identity of each other and move with the utmost charity and discretion in order to effectuate The Divine Will in these matters.  The valid cardinals, then, must act according to that clear, manifest, obvious and unambiguous mind and intention of His Holiness, Pope John Paul II, so evident in Universi Dominici Gregis, a law which finally established binding and self-actuating conditions of validity on the College for any papal conclave, a reality now made so apparent by the bad fruit of doctrinal confusion and plain error. It would seem then that praying and working in a discreet and prudent manner to encourage only those true cardinals inclined to accept a reality of conclave invalidity, would be a most charitable and logical course of action in the light of Universi Dominici Gregis, and out of our high personal regard for the clear and obvious intention of its Legislator, His Holiness, Pope John Paul II.  Even a relatively small number of valid cardinals could act decisively and work to restore a functioning Apostolic See through the declaration of an interregnum government.  The need is clear for the College to convene a General Congregation in order to declare, to administer, and soon to end the Interregnum which has persisted since March 2013. Finally, it is important to understand that the sheer number of putative counterfeit cardinals will eventually, sooner or later, result in a situation in which The Church will have no normal means validly ever again to elect a Vicar of Christ.  After that time, it will become even more difficult, if not humanly impossible, for the College of Cardinals to rectify the current disastrous situation and conduct a proper and valid Conclave such that The Church may once again both have the benefit of a real Supreme Pontiff, and enjoy the great gift of a truly infallible Vicar of Christ.  It seems that some good cardinals know that the conclave was invalid, but really cannot envision what to do about it; we must pray, if it is the Will of God, that they see declaring the invalidity and administering an Interregnum through a new valid conclave is what they must do.  Without such action or without a great miracle, The Church is in a perilous situation.  Once the last validly appointed cardinal reaches age 80, or before that age, dies, the process for electing a real Pope ends with no apparent legal means to replace it. Absent a miracle then, The Church would no longer have an infallible Successor of Peter and Vicar of Christ.  Roman Catholics would be no different that Orthodox Christians. In this regard, all of the true cardinals may wish to consider what Holy Mother Church teaches in the Catechism of the Catholic Church, ¶675, ¶676 and ¶677 about “The Church’s Ultimate Trial”.  But, the fact that “The Church .   .   .  will follow her Lord in his death and Resurrection” does not justify inaction by the good cardinals, even if there are only a minimal number sufficient to carry out Chapter II of Universi Dominici Gregis and operate the Interregnum. This Apostolic Constitution, Universi Dominici Gregis, which was clearly applicable to the acts and conduct of the College of Cardinals in March 2013, is manifestly and obviously among those “invalidating” laws “which expressly establish that an act is null or that a person is effected” as stated in Canon 10 of the 1983 Code of Canon Law.  And, there is nothing remotely “doubtful or obscure” (Canon 17) about this Apostolic Constitution as clearly promulgated by Pope John Paul II.  The tenor of the whole document expressly establishes that the issue of invalidity was always at stake.  This Apostolic Constitution conclusively establishes, through its Promulgation Clause [which makes “anything done (i.e., any act or conduct) by any person  .   .   .   in any way contrary to this Constitution,”] the invalidity of the entire supposed Conclave, rendering it “completely null and void”. So, what happens if a group of Cardinals who undoubtedly did not knowingly and wilfully initiate or intentionally participate in any acts of disobedience against Universi Dominici Gregis were to meet, confer and declare that, pursuant to Universi Dominici Gregis, Monsignor Bergoglio is most certainly not a valid Roman Pontiff.  Like any action on this matter, including the initial finding of invalidity, that would be left to the valid members of the college of cardinals.  They could declare the Chair of Peter vacant and proceed to a new and proper conclave.  They could meet with His Holiness, Benedict XVI, and discern whether His resignation and retirement was made under duress, or based on some mistake or fraud, or otherwise not done in a legally effective manner, which could invalidate that resignation.  Given the demeanor of His Holiness, Benedict XVI, and the tenor of His few public statements since his departure from the Chair of Peter, this recognition of validity in Benedict XVI seems unlikely. In fact, even before a righteous group of good and authentic cardinals might decide on the validity of the March 2013 supposed conclave, they must face what may be an even more complicated discernment and decide which men are most likely not valid cardinals.  If a man was made a cardinal by the supposed Pope who is, in fact, not a Pope (but merely Monsignor Bergoglio), no such man is in reality a true member of the College of Cardinals.  In addition, those men appointed by Pope John Paul II or by Pope Benedict XVI as cardinals, but who openly violated Universi Dominici Gregis by illegal acts or conduct causing the invalidation of the last attempted conclave, would no longer have voting rights in the College of Cardinals either.  (Thus, the actual valid members in the College of Cardinals may be quite smaller in number than those on the current official Vatican list of supposed cardinals.) In any event, the entire problem is above the level of anyone else in Holy Mother Church who is below the rank of Cardinal.  So, we must pray that The Divine Will of The Most Holy Trinity, through the intercession of Our Lady as Mediatrix of All Graces and Saint Michael, Prince of Mercy, very soon rectifies the confusion in Holy Mother Church through action by those valid Cardinals who still comprise an authentic College of Electors.  Only certainly valid Cardinals can address the open and notorious evidence which points to the probable invalidity of the last supposed conclave and only those cardinals can definitively answer the questions posed here.  May only the good Cardinals unite and if they recognize an ongoing Interregnum, albeit dormant, may they end this Interregnum by activating perfectly a functioning Interregnum government of The Holy See and a renewed process for a true Conclave, one which is purely pious, private, sacramental, secret and deeply spiritual.  If we do not have a real Pontiff, then may the good Cardinals, doing their appointed work “in view of the sacredness of the act of election”  “accept the interior movements of the Holy Spirit” and provide Holy Mother Church with a real Vicar of Christ as the Successor of Saint Peter.   May these thoughts comport with the synderetic considerations of those who read them and may their presentation here please both Our Immaculate Virgin Mother, Mary, Queen of the Apostles, and The Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.N. de Plume

    SWIFT was not involved in restoring ATM access. The Vatican switched to a Swiss company called Aduno, which circumvented SWIFT.

    For documentation, see:
    1) Timestamp 12:28 within

    Claiming the Vatican was held hostage by SWIFT is erroneous. Switching over systems takes time. So was it a coincidence that Aduno took over the machines on February 12th? The switch was almost certainly work in process before Pope Benedict announced his resignation the day before, though I’ve never seen any information documenting the timeline…

    By the way, I shared this with a friend of mine. They mentioned that they can hear the microphone when the Master of Ceremonies moves it after Pope Benedict is finished with his announcement. All sound systems will make some noise when moved. Although that is intriguing to me; What should be focused on is how he seems to read it without any emotion, almost as if he has to get it over with. One also wonders if Cardinal Sodano (who in the video addresses him afterwords) knew about it beforehand. Look at the paper he has in his hand. It doesn’t look like it is the program for the gathering, it looks like it is pre written words.

    Dear Brothers,

    I have convoked you to this Consistory, not only for the three canonizations, but also to communicate to you a decision of great importance for the life of the Church. After having repeatedly examined my conscience before God, I have come to the certainty that my strengths, due to an advanced age, are no longer suited to an adequate exercise of the Petrine ministry. I am well aware that this ministry, due to its essential spiritual nature, must be carried out not only with words and deeds, but no less with prayer and suffering. However, in today’s world, subject to so many rapid changes and shaken by questions of deep relevance for the life of faith, in order to govern the barque of Saint Peter and proclaim the Gospel, both strength of mind and body are necessary, strength which in the last few months, has deteriorated in me to the extent that I have had to recognize my incapacity to adequately fulfill the ministry entrusted to me. For this reason, and well aware of the seriousness of this act, with full freedom I declare that I renounce the ministry of Bishop of Rome, Successor of Saint Peter, entrusted to me by the Cardinals on 19 April 2005, in such a way, that as from 28 February 2013, at 20:00 hours, the See of Rome, the See of Saint Peter, will be vacant and a Conclave to elect the new Supreme Pontiff will have to be convoked by those whose competence it is.

    Dear Brothers, I thank you most sincerely for all the love and work with which you have supported me in my ministry and I ask pardon for all my defects. And now, let us entrust the Holy Church to the care of Our Supreme Pastor, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and implore his holy Mother Mary, so that she may assist the Cardinal Fathers with her maternal solicitude, in electing a new Supreme Pontiff. With regard to myself, I wish to also devotedly serve the Holy Church of God in the future through a life dedicated to prayer.

    From the Vatican, 10 February 2013

    This explains so much and correlates with the Barnhardt thesis. Bergogliio is not pope. Pope Benedict was forced out by masonic corruptors manipulating the fearsome financial consequences the world and the Vatican would suffer if he were stay. He was not weak-minded nor was he cowardly. His refusal to leave the Vatican grounds and to insist on continuing to wear the Papal garb are signals to us that he has been forced to ‘abdicate’. His ‘abdication is invalid.
