John Paul II by Danish cartoonist of Mohammed with inscription "I am against homosexuality but for pedophilia"
On Holy Thursday, in the all-just-for-show Vatican-Hollywood style once-a-year spectacle of washing of 12 feet of Opus Dei chosen men, a mock-up of Christ's gesture of humility (when He washed the feet of his Apostles, Benedict XVI has little humility compared to Christ's humility), Benedict XVI said the beatification of John Paul II would be “a chance to remember a man of great faith”, that JP2 will “rejuvenate” and lead people back to the church, and that “we must not forget that today too there are radiant examples of faith, people who give hope to the world." Benedict XVI, here’s the thing about Faith and Hope which you keep pounding about John Paul II St. Paul clearly brings them to zilch and nought because St. Paul clearly states in 1 Corinthian 13:1-13: “If there are prophecies, they will be brought to nothing; if tongues, they will cease; if knowledge, it will be brought to nothing.” John Paul II the great with all his papal knowledge, Theology of the Body, countless letters, encyclicals, books and homilies are “brought to nothing” by St. Paul. All American children must never call John Paul II "Blessed" or "Saint" in solidarity with the 12,000 American children sexually abused,r aped and sodomized by priests. All children of the world must never call John Paul II ‘blessed’ or ‘saint’ out of deference and in solidarity with the hundreds of thousands of victims in Europe and across the globe of the John Paul II Pedophiles Rapists-Priests Army http://jp2army.blogspot.com/
The fact is John Paul II had only faith and hope for adults and nothing for children. The fact is John Paul II did not have any Charity for children, sure he kissed them for his photo-ops (only those well-dressed wealthy children chosen by Opus Dei), but that is all he did for 27 years as pope, kissing for one-second those “lucky” children. John Paul II never spoke once in their defence in the most heinous crimes against children, the Priestly Sodomy of Biblical Proportions, which occurred under his Holy See watch hence they are aptly called the John Paul II Pedophiles Rapists-Priests Army. John Paul II never dirtied his papal hands like Mother Teresa in the streets of Calcutta who took care of the dying and the ill. John Paul II never took care of the ill-souls of victims who have been sodomized and raped by priests for years.
St. Paul said in 1 Corinthians 13
1 If I speak in human and angelic tongues 2 but do not have love, I am a resounding gong or a clashing cymbal.
2 And if I have the gift of prophecy and comprehend all mysteries and all knowledge; if I have all faith so as to move mountains but do not have love, I am nothing.
History does not lie and it has forever recorded that John Paul II was all-talk and a no-charity-action-pope who was only wallowing in his narcissistic pompous papal regalia show everywhere he went around the world and in his lifestyle of the rich and famous at the Vatican Palace. JP2 travelled with his beloved companion, Father Marcial Maciel Dellgado knowing that he was one of the most notorious serial pedophile priests – he ever met -- who abused two of his won biological sons. John Paul II had no moral conscience towards the victims of Father Marcial Maciel and to the victims of the 80 pedophiles priests in Boston covered-up by Cardinal Bernard Law.
Benedict also said that “the 84-year-old pope has often warned against creeping secularism which he has said is as bad as religious fanaticism”. But, again here’s the thing, John Paul II was the “secular” Head of State of the Vatican and the WYD World Youth Day he founded is the most fanatic cult for young people who chant “JP2 we love you” which can only equal the Hitler Youths who chanted “Heil, Heil, Hitler”! Read our related article, Holy Heist! John Paul II WYD had no role with Arab youths who liberated Egypt from Mubarak who stole then deposited billions into Vatican Swiss Banks http://jp2m.blogspot.com/2011/02/holy-heist-john-paul-ii-wyd-had-no-role.html
Pope Benedict said, "Have not we -- the people of God -- become to a large extent a people of unbelief and distance from God?" Well, here’s the thing, the people of God believe in God… but they do not believe in the self-proclaimed representatives of God especially the priests who claim to be able to reincarnate the flesh of Christ in 9-seconds by reciting the formula of the Transubstantiation. If Mary the purest of God’s creature needed an Archangel to make her impregnated – and then carry Christ to 9 months full term -- , there is no way that you sinful priests can reincarnate God’s flesh even if your formulas are more holy than Harry Potter magic formulas. Read our related weblog, Mary versus John Paul II, and see that John Paul II and Benedict XVI can not say “let there be light” and cannot say either, “Let there be Christ” in the sorcery of the Eucharist. http://stella0maris.blogspot.com/2010/01/magisterium-benedict-versus-holy-mary.html

Benedict XVI is all empty-talk about Suffering During Good Friday TV Show

Benedict XVI is capitalizing the television to perpetuate his abuse of his papal powers as he empty-talks about suffering during Good Friday TV show in preparation for his hijack of the beatification of John Paul II. What does Benedict XVI know about suffering as he lives in the lap of luxury in the ivory tower of the Vatican Palace? The Vatican Opus Dei manipulators staged a one-minute question and answer period with selected Opus Dei selected persons and that should prove that Benedict XVI knows something about suffering? Benedict XVI was Head of the CDF Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith for 24 years and together with John Paul II they ignored the sufferings of hundreds of thousands of victims of the John Paul II Pedophiles Rapists-Priests Army and now he speaks for one minute to a Japanese (who represent the Japanese people) in a mock-up televised show in the grandeur of the Vatican Palace and he is supposed to be an expert on suffering? The deceptions of Benedict and the Vatican Opus Dei media are like the Emperor without clothes and their days are numbered because the Vatican and the Pope are really causing the sufferings of the Arab world because the Vatican Swiss Banks keep the money of despots like Mubarak and Gadfahi...God and Mammon will no longer sleep together in the 21st Century, not in the Vatican or in the Vatican Swiss Banks...
The ceremonial Way of the Cross at the Roman Coliseum is all for show and Benedict XVI is all-talk and no action. An Oregon judge has ordered the Vatican to release secret files of a victim who was sexually abused by a pedophile priests and the world watch what Benedict XVI will do that more relevant question which -- he alone -- can answer (and not some Japanese earthquake propaganda he is using for his own narcissism and grandiosity.

Pope Talks of Suffering During Good Friday TV Show
By NICOLE WINFIELD Associated Press
VATICAN CITY April 22, 2011 (AP)
Pope Benedict XVI consoled a 7-year-old Japanese girl, reassured a mother about her ailing son's soul and advised a Muslim woman that dialogue was the way to peace in Ivory Coast.
In a push to engage the world online, the pontiff fielded their questions during an unusual Good Friday appearance on Italian TV. It was hardly a casual or spontaneous chat: Seven questions were selected from thousands that poured in via RAI television's website, and Benedict recorded his answers last week.
He seemed a bit stiff, sitting all alone in a big white chair behind his desk inside the Apostolic Palace as an unseen interviewer read out the letters to him.
But the teacher and pastor in the 84-year-old Benedict came through as he fielded the questions, which all dealt with suffering and Jesus' death, which Christians recall on Good Friday, and his resurrection, celebrated on Easter Sunday.
The first question came from young Elena, who asked the pope why she felt so afraid after Japan's earthquake shook her house and killed so many children.
"Why do children have to be so sad?" the girl asked. "I'm asking the pope, who speaks with God, to explain it to me."
Speaking simply as if Elena were right there, Benedict responded that he too wondered why so many innocent people suffer, but that she should take heart in knowing that Jesus had suffered too.
"You can be sure that in the world, in the universe, there are many people who are with you, thinking of you, doing what they can for you to help you," Benedict said.
"Be assured, we are with you, with all the Japanese children who are suffering."
He then turned to a question from an Italian mother, Maria Teresa, who worried about her son, Francesco, who has been in a vegetative state since Easter 2009. She asked if Francesco's soul still remained.
"He feels the presence of love," Benedict told her, praising her for keeping her vigil as a "true act of love."
"I encourage you, therefore, to carry on, to know that you are giving a great service to humanity with this sign of faith, with this sign of respect for life, with this love for a wounded body and a suffering soul," he said.
Monsignor Paul Tighe, the No. 2 in the Vatican's social communications office, said the decision to have the pope participate in the televised event stemmed from the realization that Benedict must engage more with the public to ensure his message is received.
"This is a very simple beginning of what you could call interactivity," Tighe said in a recent interview. "It's launching something new for us."
In the past, Benedict has taken preselected questions from carefully chosen Catholics, responding live in St. Peter's Square, such as when he meets annually with university students. He also regularly answers questions submitted beforehand by journalists when flying to foreign countries and has fielded questions from groups of priests.
But the Good Friday session was the first time he had taken questions from the general public — and not necessarily even the Catholic public.
"The advantage of this is it opens up the possibility to people who couldn't hope or aspire to having a direct meeting with the pope, but through the Internet can put their questions there," Tighe said.
That was certainly the case for Bintu, a Muslim woman who greeted the pope in Arabic and asked him in French for his advice on bringing peace to Ivory Coast, which has been wracked by political violence.
"How many innocents have lost their lives!" she said. "How many mothers and how many children traumatized!"
Benedict told her he was grieved that he could do so little, saying he had tasked the head of the Vatican's justice and peace office, Cardinal Peter Kodwo Turkson, to try to mediate between the country's opposing factions.
"The only path is to renounce violence, to begin anew with dialogue, with the attempt to find peace together, with a new concern for one another, a new willingness to be open to one another," the pontiff said.
The broadcast spliced the pope's responses with commentary from Italian religious affairs experts, as well as video footage of the people asking their questions.
It was a very feminine-focused event, with three of the questions coming from women and a fourth about Mary.
Benedict continued that theme with the more traditional Good Friday event — the nighttime Way of the Cross procession at Rome's Colosseum, in which the faithful re-enact the final hours of Christ's life. The meditations for each station of the cross were composed by an Italian nun, Sister Maria Rita Piccione, and the artwork accompanying them were designed by another nun.
Piccione said she didn't know why she had been selected. The only communication she ever had with the pope, she said in a newspaper interview, was when she sent him a letter last year offering her support for the "persecution" he and the church were going through in the midst of the clerical abuse scandal.
Benedict didn't refer directly to the scandal but spoke generally about sin and how Good Friday recalls that Christ died for all humankind's sins. He looked tired after the nearly two-hour procession, the bulk of which he spent kneeling in prayer. But he seemed to hold up well as he headed back to the Vatican, where he will preside over an Easter Vigil late Saturday and Sunday's Easter Mass.
While the Q&A session departed from the Vatican's Good Friday routine, elsewhere in the world ancient Christian practices marked the solemn day.
In Jerusalem, Christian pilgrims filled the cobblestone alleyways of the walled Old City to commemorate Jesus' crucifixion there two millennia ago. Thousands of international visitors and local Christians retraced Christ's last steps down the Via Dolorosa, Latin for the "Way of Suffering." The route ends at the ancient Church of the Holy Sepulcher, revered as the site of Jesus' crucifixion, burial and his resurrection on Easter Sunday.
"All my life I've been waiting for this wish — I've been wishing for one day to come here in Jerusalem to worship. I wanted to step where my lord stepped," said Roshan Futsom, a pilgrim from Toronto.
Associated Press writer Matti Friedman in Jerusalem contributed to this report.

Pope warns of falling belief in West
By Catherine Hornby
The water’s fine, but maybe don’t come in
VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - Pope Benedict lamented the widespread abandonment of faith in the West on Holy Thursday before he washed and dried the feet of 12 men to mark Christ's gesture of humility to his apostles on the night before he died.
The German-born pontiff said it sometimes seemed as if people in Western countries had grown bored of their own history and culture and the heartlands of Christianity were rejecting religion.
But he hailed strong examples of the faithful, such as his predecessor John Paul, whose beatification on May 1 is expected to attract hundreds of thousands to Rome and is seen by many in the Church as a chance to rejuvenate the institution.
"Have not we -- the people of God -- become to a large extent a people of unbelief and distance from God?" Pope Benedict said during a service in St. Peter's Basilica in which he blessed oils to be used in Catholic rites.
"Is it perhaps the case that the West, the heartlands of Christianity, are tired of their faith?"
He later poured water over the right feet of 12 men sitting on raised platforms and dried them. That ritual was held in the Basilica of St John's in Lateran, the Pope's cathedral in his capacity as bishop of Rome, while donations were collected for victims of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
Both services were to mark Christ's founding of the priesthood at the Last Supper on the night before he died.
Celebrating the sixth Easter season of his pontificate, the pope said the beatification of his Polish predecessor, John Paul II, would be a chance to remember a man of great faith.
"For all the shame we feel over our failings, we must not forget that today too there are radiant examples of faith, people who give hope to the world," Pope Benedict said.
The 84-year-old pope has often warned against creeping secularism which he has said is as bad as religious fanaticism.
One of the main themes of his papacy has been what the Church calls the "re-evangelization" of Europe, an attempt to urge people to return to their religious roots despite living in highly secularized societies.
The leader of the world's 1.2 billion Catholics has had a difficult struggle to rebuild the image of the Church after a scandal over the sexual abuse of children by priests reported in several countries.
Many in the Church establishment hope the beatification, bestowing on John Paul the title "blessed," will reinvigorate the institution and encourage people to return to the faith.
It is set to be the biggest event in Rome since the death of the charismatic and highly popular pope in 2005, when millions came to view his body or attend his funeral.
Vatican officials expect at least 300,000 people -- including tens of thousands from his native Poland -- to come
to the Italian capital for the three days of events celebrating his last step before sainthood.
On Good Friday, Pope Benedict will preside at services in the Vatican and then lead a traditional torch-lit Via Crucis, or Way of the Cross, around the ruins of Rome's ancient Colosseum.
Italian television will air a question and answer session with the pope on Friday, in which he will respond to queries sent in from people all over the world.
A Vatican newspaper published one of his answers on Thursday, in which he tells a mother who's son has been in a vegetative state for several years that his soul is still in his body and he can still feel the presence of love.
Holy Week services at the Vatican culminate on Easter Sunday, the most important day in the liturgical calendar, when the pope delivers his twice-yearly "Urbi et Orbi" (to the city and the world) blessing and message.

Code Words, Cover-Up: Gallup Clergy Sex Abuse File Now Online
By Elizabeth Hardin-Burrola
April 21, 2011
(See the Hageman file.)
It's all about code words, according to Patrick J. Wall. Wall, a canon lawyer and former Catholic priest and Benedictine monk, was in Winslow on Wednesday talking about the diocese of Gallup's recently released personnel file on the late Clement A. Hageman, whom diocesan officials have admitted was a pedophile priest.
The 156-pages of documents, while filled with references to the priest's chronic alcoholism, are also filled with church code words for sexual abuse, Wall said. Some of those references aren’t even subtle - "guilty of playing with boys" and the Latin phrase "cum pueris," which means "with boys" – while others are more euphemistic - ''the other trouble," "old transgressions,” and "his difficulty."
"There's enough in this file you could write a whole story alone on code words,"
