Vatican City (AFP) – Pilgrims and dignitaries from the world over streamed into Rome a day before John Paul II and John XXIII are named saints in the first ever double papal canonization.
In front of the Vatican Saturday, families and groups of scouts armed with folding chairs and sleeping mats braved skies threatening rain to stake out their places in a swelling queue to get onto St. Peter’s Square, which will only open in the early hours of Sunday.
What I find troubling is that the former pope Ratzinger will be part of this ceremony. This man has been convicted of crimes against humanity including child sacrifice and abduction. He was convicted along with the queen of England and others. He has literally gotten away with murder so far.
The current pope is currently being tried at a common law court in Brussels for the same. Two separate witnesses describe their alleged rape and ritual torture by chief defendant Jorge Bergoglio (alias “Pope Francis”) in 2009 and 2010.
Jesuit records are introduced as evidence detailing the so-called “Magisterial Privilege” decreeing papal involvement in “Ninth Circle” ritual murder of newborn children. The same records identify Joseph Ratzinger as a member of the “Knights of Darkness” S.S. sacrificial cult during World War Two.
Neither of these men deserve to be in charge of ceremonies to canonize the two dead popes. The fact that they are participating says what of John XXIII and John Paul II?
