Knights of Malta Council Accepts Grand Master’s Resignation and Reinstates Deposed Grand Chancellor

BREAKING: Knights of Malta Council Accepts Grand Master’s Resignation [and Reinstates Deposed Grand Chancellor]

[They roll over before FrankenPope and completely capitulate to his demands]

Posted by Oakes Spalding on 1/28/17

The Sovereign Council of the Order of Malta has voted to accept the resignation of their current Grand Master, Fra’ Matthew Festing.

They resignation had been ordered by Pope Francis.

The Council consists of ten members, including the Grand Master. According to Edward Pentin of National Catholic Register, there was only one dissenting vote.

In addition, the Council acceded to the Pope’s demand that all disciplinary decrees against the expelled Grand Chancellor Albrecht Boeselager be immediately annulled. Boeselager is again Grand Chancellor.

The Order will be now be temporarily run by Grand Commander Fra’ Ludwig Hoffman von Rumerstein until a new Grand Master is Elected.

However, real power is expected to reside in a Special Delegate appointed by the Pope.

There had been some question as to whether the Order would accept the Special Delegate, but they appear to have done so, today.

  1. [The Knights start the emasculation of their Order by thanking FrankenPope for his intervention and scrubbing the former statements opposing any such intervention from their website]

    Order of Malta thanks Pope for his “determination to strengthen its sovereignty”


    The Sovereign Order of Malta has released a press statement announcing the resignation of Grand Master Fra’ Matthew Festing, and expressing gratitude to Pope Francis & Card. Parolin “for their interest in & care for the Order”. The press statement goes on to express appreciation for Pope Francis’ decisions which it characterises as coming from the Holy Father’s “determination to strengthen its sovereignty” …


    The Sovereign Order of Malta’s statement of appreciation for Pope Francis’s “determination to strengthen its sovereignty” is in marked contrast to previous statements issued during the crisis between the Order and the Holy See. In December 2016 the Grand Magistry of the Sovereign Order of Malta issued a statement making it clear that the Holy See did not have the authority to appoint a commission to investigate the replacement of the former Grand Chancellor. The Grand Magistry clearly saw the Holy See’s actions as an infringement on its long established sovereignty:

    “The replacement of the former Grand Chancellor is an act of internal governmental administration of the Sovereign Order of Malta and consequently falls solely within its competence.”

    On the 10th January 2017 the Order of Malta issued another statement protesting the Holy See’s investigation into its internal decisions:

    “Thus, considering the legal irrelevance of this group and of its findings relating to the legal structure of the Order of Malta, the Order has decided that it should not cooperate with it.”

    Both of these statements appear to have been removed from The Sovereign Order of Malta’s website, the statement for the 23rd December 2016 and the statement for the 10th January 2017

  2. It stinks of blackmail. Whatever the reason, these pitiful “knights” aren’t worthy of the name.
    Cowards. Or Traitors. Or Fools. Or some combination thereof.
    The most charitable interpretation is that they are victims of the heresy of Universal Papal Infallibilism — though I doubt that is more than a partial answer, at best.
    Archbishop Lefebvre, when he faced the choice between obedience to God or to men, knew what to do.
    God bless you, Lone Dissenter! Amen, amen, you will have your reward…and so will the traitors.

    • Yes, blackmail, according to Ann Barnhardt, who is only repeating what the British neo-Modernist Tablet (aka The Pill) reported (N.B. Only one word needed de-BLEEPing):

      TOLDYA: Grand Master Festing’s Resignation Coerced, Ties To Faggots Leaked By Team Bergoglio


      Well, well, well. Overnight more details emerged, confirming what I wrote yesterday. First, Edward Pentin, who is almost single-handedly “saving Catholicism from itself” with his reportage, as one very solid priest friend put it, has details of the secret meeting in which Antipope Bergoglio illegally coerced Grand Master Festing into “resigning”. Excerpted from RorateCaeli:

      The Pope summoned Fra’ Festing to the Vatican on Jan. 24 on the strict instruction not to let anyone know about the audience — a modus operandi that has been used frequently during this pontificate, the Register has learned. During the meeting, Francis asked Fra’ Festing to resign immediately, to which the Grand Master agreed. The Pope then ordered him to write his resignation letter on the spot, according to informed sources.

      The Register has also learned that the Pope told Fra’ Festing that the reason for asking for his resignation was the Pope’s conviction that he has to do a new, “complete investigation” of the Order, and that such an investigation would be “more easily conducted” if the Grand Master resigned.

      The Register has been told that the Pope then had Fra’ Festing include in his letter of resignation that the Grand Master had asked for Boeselager’s dismissal “under the influence” of Cardinal Raymond Burke, the patron of the Order. However, as patron the cardinal has no governance in the Order and can only counsel the Grand Master, meaning the decision to dismiss the Grand Chancellor belonged solely to the Grand Master.

      Emphases mine [i.e., Ann’s]. So Festing not only resigned himself, but also destroyed the SMOM and, AND threw Cardinal Burke under the bus, too.

      The editors at Rorate go on to say (emphases mine [i.e., Ann’s]):

      The violence, irrationality, and resentment that led to this forced resignation (by its very nature, not free and invalid, as all forced resignations) make one wonder if perhaps another resignation, that of Pope Benedict XVI, announced surprisingly to the astonishment of all on February 11, 2013, was not obtained with the use of similar methods.

      Who knows?… What once sounded like an insane conspiracy theory does not look so impossible anymore. These are the methods the mafia currently in power use. It looks indeed not unlike what is being done to the Grand Master and the Sovereign Order of Malta. Honestly: would you doubt anything now?

      I preferred the pejorative “dippy”. DIPPY conspiracy theory. Except, you know, completely rational, grounded in objective reality, and completely unbiased by fear of losing earthly position, benefits or social esteem.

      But wait! There’s more! Just as secular regimes leak to their ideological fellow-travelers in the “press”, so too does the Bergoglio regime. In this case, the Tablet, a flamingly pro-sodomy “c”atholic newspaper out of the U.K. leaks the connection to faggotry that was used against Festing. Citation HERE.

      Finally, The Tablet argues that Vatican investigators are “aware” of a case of child abuse in the congregation that former Grand Master Festing would have handled negligently.

      A knight taken by Festing to the Sovereign Council, Duncan Gallie , was one of four in charge of an internal investigation of a former sexton of the Order in London, Vernon Quaintance, accused of sexual assault of minors.

      Gallie and the other gentlemen concluded in 2011 that no action should be taken against Quaintance, who in 2014 was found guilty of nine counts of abuse and possession of child pornography. In spite of everything , Gallie continues to this day living in Rome and participating in the meetings of the Sovereign Council.

      I looked up the details on this, and this Vernon Quaintance faggot was the sacristan for the SMOM in London, and would lure young boys out in his car, and then demand that they allow him to “inspect” their penises to see if they were circumcised or not. You know, for science.

      Folks, two things. First, there is NO SUCH THING AS A HARMLESS FAGGOT. They are human poison, conscienceless fiends, covering for their allies and blackmailing their enemies. Bergoglio bends over backwards to protect his boy-raping faggot buddies, but, as is intrinsic to that culture, will not hesitate to destroy his ideological enemies by leveraging and exposing their faggotry and pedophilia. Hypocrisy is not only irrelevant to these monsters, they luxuriate in it. This business of orthodox, believing, even Traditional Catholics looking the other way at faggotry in their midst, deluding themselves into thinking, “Yeah, he’s a fag, but he’s on our side, and he’s SO WITTY….” No. Enough of this “Evelyn Waugh faggot culture”. It will be the death of all of us.

      Second, ALL FAGGOTS ARE POTENTIAL CHILD ABUSERS. ALL. OF. THEM. It is just a matter of time and opportunity. Every homosexual, male or female, is a clear and present danger to children. Period.

      This is what was leaked. One has to wonder if there isn’t more, because, again, for Festing to completely destroy a 900 year old order AND throw Cardinal Burke under the bus, well, whatever Bergoglio said to him, it must have been… persuasive.

  3. Brave Sir Robin ran away.
    Bravely ran away away.
    (“I didn’t!”)
    When danger reared it’s ugly head,
    He bravely turned his tail and fled.
    (“I never!”)
    Yes, brave Sir Robin turned about
    And gallantly he chickened out.
    (“You’re lying!”)
    Swiftly taking to his feet,
    He beat a very brave retreat.
    Bravest of the brave, Sir Robin!
