Pope Francis’ INABILITY To Apologize For This Heinous Crime Is Another Confirmation That Much Of His Trademark Benevolence Is Fake — & Just For Show.

Apologizing for this, YET ANOTHER, appalling crime against humanity by the Catholic Church should NOT be difficult. It should be a no-brainer. The Canadian Prime Minister has ‘suggested’ that it would be the decent thing to do. But, Pope Francis has shown that when press comes to shove he is not that much of a decent soul.

I have said it PLENTY before & I will say it again. Pope Francis so desperately wants to be Trump! He is a showman. That is basically all that he is. A performer.

His supposed benevolence is an ACT. Fake. Do YOU need any other proof?

That 84-Year Old ‘Pope Francis’ Is OBSESSING Over Wanting To Ban The Latin Mass Just Another Indication That He Is Old & …

by Anura Guruge



This is crazy. Stupid. The Latin Mass is NOT blasphemy! It is, as the name says, the Mass in Latin. To expend so much time & energy agitating & discussing whether it should be further restricted or banned altogether is beyond the pale.

This is not a crime. Nobody is doing anything even vaguely wrong. How can it suddenly be a CRIME to want to embrace the TRADITIONAL form of the Mass. Come on. This is unworthy of the Pope, papacy & Church.

The Pope has more pressing things he should be addressing … like the hundreds of INNOCENT indigenous kids killed in Canada by the Catholic Church.

To I this is Pope Francis turning into the old, tired man he is!

Pope Francis’ New $50 Max. Anti-Bribery Rule Is Beyond Laughable As It Applies To Cardinals.

Yes, of course, we all know it is wrong, BUT that is how the Vatican has operated, unchanged, unchecked since time immemorial (or, if you want to start getting pedantic, for at least the last 1,700-years). Yes, yes, yes. There have been various anti-corruption & ‘bannish simony‘ efforts, rules & laws for the years, BUT they have all, always, been conveniently ignored.

The curia could not, would not, exist but for corruption & bribes. That is just the way things happen, the way things are done.

Cardinals, in particular, rely on these stuffed, white envelopes, full of high-denomination dollar bills, to exist. Without these bribes they would have to abide by the constricts of poverty. That would never do.

It gets funnier & funnier. The U.S. resident cardinals are the BIGGEST culprits when it comes to bribing curial staff — whether they be curial cardinals, archbishops, bishops, monsignors or lesser.

This is a joke. The pope is trying to be FUNNY.

How can be stop it? Pray tell me. OK. They will stop accepting fat, white envelopes in PUBLIC, at the Vatican. So, what? This is hilarious. Laugh. It is good for you. I did. I still laugh when I think of this.

I Explain, In My New ‘Next Pope’ Blog, Why Cardinal Robert Sarah Is Not & Never Was A Realistic Papabile.

by Anura Guruge


I started this ‘Next Pope’ blog last week. Still working on it. So, far I have only managed three post, this post about ‘Robert Sarah‘ the third. I am NOT going to reproduce these posts on this blog too. I want you to get in the habit of going to that blog for future ‘Next Pope‘ posts. OK.

But, until you get into the hang of that. I do NOT want you to miss any of these ‘Next Pope’ posts.

The Very Avant-Garde, Sci-Fi 2020 Vatican Nativity Scene That Has NOT Impressed The Pope.

by Anura Guruge


Just a few images from Google. You can do your own search.


Given that they have been doing nativity scenes for so long, they, i.e., the Vatican, does like to experiment & try out new themes.

This one is ‘interesting’. Yes, kind of a time warp so to speak. An astronaut, in a spacesuit, at the birth of Jesus.

To be fair, Pope Francis, has never been too thrilled with ANY of the Vatican nativity scenes since he has been pope. He sees them as a waste of money. He might have a point.

But I can see how this one could irk him more than most.

Pope Francis, Who Like Trump Is So IMAGE-CONSCIOUS, Refuses To Wear A Mask.

by Anura Guruge


Click to access my post from a month ago.


The picture at the top is from today, Saturday, November 28, 2020, right after the latest cardinal creating consistory. That it was held during a pandemic raised eyebrows.

And like Trump, at all White House public gatherings, the pope refused to wear a mask. He is a law unto himself — like Trump.

Trump has done irreparable damage to the U.S. Presidency; Pope Francis to the papacy.

Both are into promoting a cult of personality.

The pope won’t wear a mask for the same reason as Trump. He thinks it will harm his looks. He is the pope. He should not be so vain.

But, vain he is.

Pope Francis Has Become Increasingly More Unhinged & Erratic, Like Trump.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE. A quick Google search on ‘Pope Francis cardinals’.


Just 3 things to consider right now:

  1. He is meeting folks, in Trump like gatherings, without a MASK! Not cool, not wise.
    ….
  2. This totally against the grain endorsement of ‘gay union‘ has roiled & divided the Church. Uncalled for right now.
    ….
  3. But, what really got my GOAT. He is again going to WAY EXCEED the 120 cardinal elector limit when he creates his latest batch of cardinals. Barring deaths we will be 6 to 8 cardinals electors ABOVE the 120 limit THROUGHOUT 2021. That is beyond crazy. Unless he changes the 120 limit, which he can easily do with just a simple memo, he is playing with fire. If there were to be a conclave all hell will break loose! Not cool. Uncalled for.
    …..

No reason for any of this.

Pope Francis Blames Market Capitalism Rather Than God For COVID-19 & Aftermath!

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE. Article from NPR. Google.


Last month, September 10, 2020.

Click image to access the “Irish Post” coverage. Google for more.


Let us NOT forget that on March 18, 2020, Pope Francisasked God to stop COVID“. Look it up. I did a post just to make sure that I had a record of it.

Well, we know how that worked out. Tens of thousands have DIED since then.

So, why is Pope Francis now blaming a SYSTEM … rather than God.

He is so disingenuous. Another Donald Trump. Shameless.

Weak Pope Francis YET Again Has Trouble Accepting A FULL, COMPLETE Resignation From A Cardinal.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.


Click to ENLARGE.


Just as he did with disgraced Scot Keith “I Lied” O’Brien in 2013, Francis chickened out at the last minute. He let O’Brien retain his ‘Cardinal’ title though he was NOT a cardinal. STUPID. He was a cardinal in name, but NOT really a cardinal!

Well, we did it again. Ditto, Becciu. He is no longer a cardinal, but is allowed to call himself a cardinal. How stupid. Makes a mockery of that saying that you are either pregnant or not. There is nothing in between.

You are either a cardinal or NOT.

Pope Francis yet again demonstrates he is weak & irresolute.

Another Catholic Cardinal RENOUNCES His Cardinaliate — Not Just His ‘Day Job’.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE & read here. From: ncronline.org


Click to access my original post.


There is a LOT of confusion as to what this RESIGNATION entails BUT it is very clear that it is much more than his ‘Day Job‘, i.e., that of Prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints. Yes, he was in charge of making Saints & now it transpires he is NO Saint himself. Ironic. But, Church history is full of such ironies.

Fortunately, to all our relief, this resignation has NOTHING to do with SEX! It has to do with financial corruption — I think embezzlement. So, that is good, i.e., it not having to do with sex crimes.

I think he has totally resigned his cardinalate as did McCarrick in 2018 — the 1st such TRUE resignation in 90-years.

Others THINK (& hope) that he hasn’t gone the WHOLE hog & just relinquished his rights to be a cardinal elector — as did disgraced Scot Keith “I Lied” O’Brien in 2013 just ahead of the conclave. I don’t think so. I think 72-year old Giovanni Angelo Becciu is TOAST. Done. Gone.
