Bombshell from Vatican: Benedict and Francis “in complete disagreement”, “never talk to one another”

(ROME) – Speaking at a March 16th conference in Limburg, Germany, the long-time Vatican correspondent Andreas Englisch has delivered an explosive allegation: In contradiction of public appearances, Pope Francis and Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI “are in complete disagreement” and “never speak to one another.” The Pope Emeritus has apparently stated that he only appears in public “at the explicit request of Pope Francis.” What is shown on these occasions, Englisch continues, is “only the pretense of friendship.”

No official transcript of the press conference is yet available, but Giuseppe Nardi, another well-known Vaticanist who was in attendance, says that Englisch continued his statements by describing Pope Francis as a “strong personality” who “gets what he wants,” and that he has little in common with Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI but “uses him when necessary for the optics.” Englisch concluded his dramatic remarks with a remarkable statement: that, in addition to the pressure put upon the Pope Emeritus to resign, “different ecclesiastical forces” are putting pressure on Ratzinger in a different direction: “to return.”

  1. Continuing with my opera motif du jour, I could picture Mozart completely rewriting Don Giovanni with this item!
    The finale, of course, wouldn’t need a thing changed… ☺🎶🎶🎶🎶

  2. “Different ecclesiastical forces”, eh?

    “To return” ????

    Well, since we rarely learn anything of substance until after the fact, this li’l teaser won’t keep me up nights….

  3. I’d like to think that there’s still a tiny, shrewd group of influential men inside the Occupied City; not completely cowed and which hasn’t gone as berserk as far too many prelates already have, a group with enough street cred and reach to actually undo the leftist coup of 2013…

    Nah. That’ll just keep me awake.

  4. “PENTITI,PENTITI !!!
