Former secretary relates how Benedict XVI pledged obedience to Pope Francis

Catholic World News – 2/9/18

When Pope Francis called his predecessor immediately after his election, the first words of the former Pontiff were a promise of “total obedience,” according to Msgr. Albert Xuereb, who was private secretary to Benedict XVI. Msgr. Xuereb gave Vatican news a detailed description of the dramatic phone conversation.

[In view of recent reports that FrankenPope will soon demand an oath of “fidelity” to himself and his “Magisterium” from all clerics (priests and bishops) subject to suspension from the clerical state, was B16’s pledge of obedience volunteered or requested?  The call from FrankenPope was to the Monsignor’s cell-phone, which he answered and gave to B16.  Thus, the Monsignor only heard B16’s side of the conversation and not what FrankenPope said! – AQ moderator Tom]
