“The Two Pope”, 2019 Movie, Pure Fiction — Rather Than Faction &, Moreover, Riddled With Technical Errors.

by Anura Guruge



Beautifully crafted, well acted movie though the MAIN storyline is pure, unadulterated fiction.

The primary crux of the story, the 2012 meeting between the then pope, Benedict XVI, & the future pope, viz. Francis, in Castel Gandolfo did NOT happen. Period.

Yes, in December 2011 ‘Francis’ (then Bergoglio) would have, per Canon Law, had to have tendered his RETIREMENT, by letter, to Benedict XVI. That was because he had turned 75. The retirement would have been from being the Archbishop of Buenos Aires. This is rote. All Bishops, irrespective of standing, must tender a letter of retirement upon turning 75. It is up to the pope to accept & there are instances when the pope might take 5-years to do so. The retirement would NOT have been a BIG deal. Bergoglio would NOT have disappeared from the Church. He could have still carried on his work in Argentina, albeit as a CARDINAL — a retired Archbishop. I think we have about 40 cardinals in this category as I write.

Plus, though it was rumored he was runner up in the 2005 conclave, Bergoglio, in 2012, was by no means the favorite to be the next Pope — especially not so in Benedict XVI’s eyes. All that was rubbish.

What disturbed me much was the rank technical errors to do with the conclaves. Those should not have occurred. Easy enough to have got right. They could have JUST checked one of my books. SMILE. (Yes, the “The Next Pope 2011” book was still good & accurate.)

Let me just list a few of the most egregious.

  1. They do NOT, let me REPEAT, do NOT, use ‘bingo balls’ to keep track of who has voted. That is so, so stupid. The cardinals vote per their precedence — which is also how they are seated. They get up, in a row, one-after-the-other, & go place their ballot. You don’t need bingo balls to keep track. All can see the cardinals voting in sequence. Where they got that was STUPID.
    …..
  2. The new pope does NOT appear on the balcony as the Habemus Papam is being announced. In 2013 there was a 30-minute gap between the Habemus Papam & Francis appearing on the balcony. In 2005 the gap was shorter BUT there is an interval, so that banners can be draped, before the new pope appears.
    …..
  3. The new pope CERTAINLY does not, causally, pick up his new white zucchetto from a shirt box in the Sistine sacristy as he is leaving it. There is a ceremony in which the white zucchetto is presented to the new pope by the Secretary of the Conclave! That was stupid.
    ….
  4. In 2013 Francis did NOT say “May God forgive you for what you have done in my regard” at the Conclave. He said it much later, in jest, over dinner. It was John Paul I, in 1978, who said it at the conclave. Jeez.
    ….

DO NOT BE FOOLED BY Cardinal-Reprobate Wuerl’s Resignation — It Is MEANINGLESS!

by Anura Guruge


Please, please CLICK and read.


Click to access my original post.


The evil Pope Francis, the diabolical Vatican and shameless, reprobate Wuerl FOOLED YOU again!

No wonder Cardinal Shameless Dolan’s mother is ashamed to be Catholic. See below. << Here is a link. >>

Bloody Wurel HAD to bloody resign. He is 77-years old. Resignation age for Archbishops/Bishops — per Canon Law — is 75!

For Christ’s sake do NOT let them hoodwink YOU. Treat you as if you are stupid. The Catholic Church has done that for so long — like 2,000-years — that it is convinced that they can get away with anything and everything — including CRIMES AGAINST INNOCENT KIDS.

Screw the Church.

PLEASE Do NOT Let The Vatican & The Pope FOOL YOU With Meaningless Resignations.

by Anura Guruge

Code of Canon Law per the Vatican. Canon 401. Check it yourself.


I explained this yesterday when it comes to cardinals, such as the disgraced, diabolical Wuerl.

In the Catholic Church Bishops & Archbishops HAVE TO TENDER their resignation, to the pope, when they turn 75. That is Canon Law. The pope has to accept the resignation.

What the Vatican & the pope are doing is PORTRAYING these AGE-RELATED resignations as being disciplinary.

These resignations are mandatory.

Nothing to do with DISCIPLINE or CENSURE.

Just plain old retirement upon turning 75.

DO NOT LET THE CHURCH FOOL YOU.

They think you are gullible and stupid. Do not make them make you a fool.

Debased Cardinal-Disgrace Wuerl: Two V. Different Kinds Of Resignation. Only One Matters.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.


When it comes to cardinals who are still active Archbishops, as is the case with disgraceful Donald William Wuerl (b. Nov. 12, 1940), there are two types of resignations.

You can resign your Archbishopric or you can resign your Cardinalate.

All Archbishops, due to age, must resign. That is Canon Law. When an Archbishop turns 75, as Wuerl did in November 2015, he has NO CHOICE but to submit a letter of resignation to the Pope. That is a given. You can’t get around that. When the pope accepts the resignation is up to the pope.

In the case of Wuerl, the pope, inexplicably, has sat on the letter for 3-years. He, however, can’t sit on it forever. Archbishops have to be out of office by the time they turn 80.

So, if you hear that the pope has accepted Wuerl’s resignation DO NOT get excited until you determine what he resigned.

If it was only his Archbishopric that would be meaningless. He had to resign because of age. It is called retirement.

What he must resign, as did his predecessor, the groping Theodore Edgar McCarrick is his Cardinalate.

Got that?

Two very different resignations — one totally meaningless.

These are the two ‘Nullity of Marriage’, i.e., marriage annulment,
decrees issued by Pope Francis on September 18, 2015.

The REASON for their being TWO is that
one is for the Latin Rites Catholics
and the other is for the Eastern Rites Catholics
— given that EACH has its own set of
Canon Laws.

They are both ‘motu proprio’ (on his own impulse (or initiative))
edicts. As the name says it is an edict enacted by a pope
without seeking ‘blessing’ from a council or synod.
A pope can do that and it is a perfectly valid decree.
It can ONLY be overturned by another pope.

The two ‘motu proprio’ edicts are:
“Mitis Iudex Dominus Iesus”
(Latin Rites)
“Mitis et misericors Iesus” 
(Eastern Rites)

As is the case with nearly ALL papal documents
the TITLE is the first few words of the document in Latin.
So the title per se does NOT refer to marriage or nullity!
Instead the title in each case refers to Jesus (Iesus).
“Mitis Iudex Dominus Iesus” — Clement Jude Lord Jesus.
“Mitis et misericors Iesus”  — Jesus, forgiving and merciful.
