Benedict XVI is Papal Humpty Dumpty. Pope showed wisdom and firmness against abuses as CDF prefect, says Msgr. Scicluna is preposterous!
Benedict XVI is the Papal Humpty Dumpty and all the Pope’s men and foot solders cannot put Benedict XVI together again. Benedict XVI’s Vatican staff and professional media spinners are now in full swing to try to save him from falling down from the Chair of St. Peter. But the John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army which he covered-up as prefect of the CDF has come home to roost. Like an earthquake fault, it has now hit home and shaken his own native Germany, his own blood brother and most of all, himself, when he was an Archbishop in Germany. That’s three strikes and you’re out! Three Wolf! Wolf! Wolf! Like that little boy who kept lying, no one will believe him in the end.
The Vatican staff and those professional writers can hide the truth only to a certain degree and try to twist words and make Benedict XVI appear as the “Holy Father”.
In this Age of Google and the Internet, people are neither naïve nor that fanatically religious as to keep believing in those professional media spinners. People can see through words and lies. People no longer have to believe in religion to perform charities of Mother Teresa. There are the Doctors Without Borders and Red Cross and so many charitable foundations to join. Besides, even John Paul II the Venerable did not have the charity of Mother Teresa http://jp2m.blogspot.com/2009/11/john-paul-ii-did-not-have-charity-of.html
See Benedict XVI’s professional media spinners: Note the selected words they put in their titles, ‘dismayed’, ‘shocked’ for papal crocodile tears http://pope-ratz.blogspot.com/2010/03/benedict-xvis-professional-media.html
When all is said and done, it is really the suffering Christ who has had enough of the pedophile priests sins crying to Heaven. Christ cannot allow John Paul II to be called a “saint”. We thought it was our mission to prove that John Paul II must not be called a “saint” in American soil and by American lips. But God who can see Heaven and earth wanted a bigger scope than just America. We thought, only in America. But God want it all over the world. God does not want John Paul II to be called a “saint” in all Catholic countries where his John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army existed. The proofs? When Benedict declared him “Venerable, JP2 army erupted in Ireland. When the Vatican declared the miraculous cure of the German barber, jp2 army jolted in Germany. Keep going on, Benedict XVI, keep hastening the beatification of JPIII and the Vatican will erupt into rubbles like the Temple of Solomon see the John Paul II Millstone & Benedict XVI angers Jewish groups for declaring “Venerable” Pius XII who did nothing during Holocaust… like John Paul II did nothing for clergy abuse http://pope-ratz.blogspot.com/2009/12/benedict-xvi-angers-jewish-groups-for.html .

Pope showed wisdom and firmness against abuses as CDF prefect, says Msgr. Scicluna
Catholic News Agency
Vatican City, Mar 13, 2010 / 03:08 pm (CNA/EWTN News).
The Avvenire newspaper of the Italian Bishops' Conference printed an interview on Saturday which sheds light on how cases of sexual abuse are dealt with in the Catholic Church. The role of then-Cardinal Ratzinger in the providing the guidelines for the Congregation's processing of 3,000 cases in the last nine years is also examined.
Avvenire interviewed the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith's "promoter of justice," Monsignor Charles J. Scicluna, who investigates crimes against the Eucharist, the sanctity of the Sacrament of Penance and the sixth commandment, "You shall not commit adultery," all of which fall under the category of "delicta graviora" (serious transgressions).
In the interview, which is printed in its entirety in English on Vatican Radio's website, Msgr. Scicluna affirms the Church's historically firm stance against pedophilia, saying that "the condemnation of this kind of crime has always been firm and unequivocal." He concedes, however, that in practice "It may be that in the past - perhaps also out of a misdirected desire to protect the good name of the institution - some bishops were ... too indulgent towards this sad phenomenon."
PROMOTER OF JUSTICE AT DOCTRINE OF FAITH ON PAEDOPHILIA
Vatican Information Service
VATICAN CITY, 13 MAR 2010 (VIS) - Given below is the text of an interview, published today by the Italian newspaper "Avvenire", with Msgr. Charles J. Scicluna, promoter of justice of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, concerning the investigative and judicial activities of that dicastery in cases of "delicta graviora", which include the crime of paedophilia committed by members of the clergy:
Msgr. Charles J. Scicluna is the "promoter of justice" of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. He is effectively the prosecutor of the tribunal of the former Holy Office, whose job it is to investigate what are known as "delicta graviora"; i.e., the crimes which the Catholic Church considers as being the most serious of all: crimes against the Eucharist and against the sanctity of the Sacrament of Penance, and crimes against the sixth Commandment ("thou shall not commit impure acts") committed by a cleric against a person under the age of eighteen. These crimes, in a "Motu Proprio" of 2001, "Sacramentum sanctitatis tutela", come under the competency of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. In effect, it is the "promoter of justice" who deals with, among other things, the terrible question of priests accused of paedophilia, which are periodically highlighted in the mass media. Msgr. Scicluna, an affable and polite Maltese, has the reputation of scrupulously carrying out the tasks entrusted to him without deferring to anyone.
Question: Monsignor, you have the reputation of being "tough", yet the Catholic Church is systematically accused of being accommodating towards "paedophile priests".
Answer: It may be that in the past - perhaps also out of a misdirected desire to protect the good name of the institution - some bishops were, in practice, too indulgent towards this sad phenomenon. And I say in practice because, in principle, the condemnation of this kind of crime has always been firm and unequivocal. Suffice it to recall, to limit ourselves just to last century, the famous Instruction "Crimen sollicitationis" of 1922.
NOTE ISSUED BY HOLY SEE PRESS OFFICE DIRECTOR
Vatican Information Service
VATICAN CITY, 13 MAR 2010 (VIS) - Holy See Press Office Director Fr. Federico Lombardi S.J. today issued a note entitled "A clear route through stormy waters".
"At the end of a week in which a large part of the attention of the European media has been focused on the question of sexual abuses committed by people in institutions of the Catholic Church, we would like to make three observations:
"Firstly, the line being taken by the German Episcopal Conference has shown itself to be the right way to face the problem in its various aspects. The declarations of the president of that conference, Archbishop Zollitsch, following his meeting with the Holy Father, recap the strategy laid down in the conference's recent assembly and reiterate its essential operational aspects: recognition of the truth and help for victims, reinforcement of preventative measures and constructive collaboration with the authorities (including the judicial authorities of State) for the common good of society. Archbishop Zollitsch also unequivocally reiterated the opinion of experts according to whom the question of celibacy should in no way be confused with that of paedophilia. The Holy Father has encouraged the line being followed by the German bishops which - even taking account of the specific context of their own county - may be considered as a useful and inspiring model for other episcopal conferences that find themselves facing similar problems.
As Abuse Scandal Nears Pope, Vatican Fires Back
By Polly Davis Doig
(Newser) – A day after high-level Catholic officials admitted that "serious mistakes" were made in handling a sex abuse case in the German diocese where Pope Benedict XVI was then archbishop, the Vatican came out swinging in defense of the embattled pontiff. Benedict, as the Vatican's cardinal in charge of sex-abuse policy, "showed wisdom and firmness in handling these cases," a spokesman tells the AP.
Vatican officials defend pope on abuse
The Associated Press
VATICAN CITY — The Vatican on Saturday denounced what it called aggressive attempts to drag Pope Benedict XVI into the spreading scandals of pedophile priests in his German homeland, and contended he has long confronted abuse cases with courage.
In separate interviews, both the Holy See's spokesman and its prosecutor for sex abuse of minors by clergy sought to defend the pope.
After decades of similar scandals in the United States, Ireland and elsewhere, the sex abuse scandal moved closer to Benedict in recent days.
