No amount of ‘historic apology’ Benedict makes will matter -- unless he fires the first criminals Cardinal Bernard Law & Cardinal Roger Mahony

Benedict made a ‘historic apology’ when he came to Washington for his birthday in 2008, when he went to Australia for World Youth Day in 2008, and when he went to Malta for his birthday this April 2010, where he shed a few tears while meeting with a few (handpicked for propaganda) victims. He’ll probably make another ‘historic apology’ when he goes to Fatima on May 13, 2010. Now a big 'historic apology' is being planned for June 2010 with thousands of priests from all over the world at St. Peter's Square. But, no matter how many ‘historic apology’ Benedict XVI makes, unless he fires the first criminals in the USA Cardinal Bernard Law of Boston and the guiltiest criminal Cardinal Roger Mahony of Los Angeles who condoned and covered-up the John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army in the USA, his papal apologies will always be worthless and futile. Priest pedophilia erupted first here in Boston and culminated in Los Angeles with 600+ pedophile priests, probably the largest ever in the world for one city. Therefore, unless he brings justice first to us in the USA, he cannot bring justice elsewhere. Cardinal Bernard Law is mocking us from his Archpriest High Chair in St. Mary Major in Rome, that mockery must end. Same for Cardinal Mahony who will soon retire in glory.

Benedict XVI and the Vatican don’t seem to get it, they still act as if the world believe that the Pope is the representative of Christ, that his words are infallible, that a few words of apology is enough to assuage the hydrogen bomb existence of the John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army, and that a few papal gestures is enough to heal the innumerable victims that are now revealing themselves and their lifetime sufferings worldwide. We are now in the 21st century, and after 2,000 years of Catholicism and almost all papal sins exposed, after countries have fought for their independence through wars and revolutions against despots, the people of the world have learned their lessons and they will no longer tolerate any form of totalitarianism, not even in the Catholic Church which claims to be the “sole key to Heaven”. Benedict XVI is the last despot in a democratic country and the “vow of obedience” and the 'promise of heavenly grace' will not cut it for the laity at large, for religious orders maybe, but not for the laity who have fought with their own lives and blood revolutions that toppled down autocratic rulers. The people of the world now enjoy their freedom of speech, freedom of the press and freedom of belief and a simple "Amen" will no longer suffice to ‘Hail Mary’ (or Heil Hitler) the Papal dictatorship of Benedict XVI.

In Malta, Benedict XVI met with 8 handpicked victims and he gave a white rosary to one of them who said that “Benedict is a saint”. He is the ‘model victim’ that the Vatican would like all other tens of thousands of victims to imitate. See our earlier article that details this role model for victims in our article of the Vatican's archetype victim of pedophile priests http://pope-ratz.blogspot.com/2010/04/benedict-xvis-phony-sorrow-superficial.html

Now, an “unprecedented act of penance by Benedict, together with thousands of clergymen from around the world in St Peter's Square, 9-11 June” is being planned by the Vatican with the hope that it “will lay to rest the scandal” for the abuse of children. It will be “at the climax of the International Year for Priests”. “It could be considered comparable to the historic step that the previous pope, John Paul II, took in apologising to the Jews for historic church anti-Semitism and for misdeeds during the Crusades”.

The Vatican and Benedict XVI still don’t get it, that John Paul II is not ‘saint’ and can never be a saint; therefore he is not a role model especially for ‘historic apology’ because he never apologized to one single abused child when he was alive. John Paul II was a living compendium of Catholic theology, he made all kinds of ‘historic apologies’, but he was a heartless Holy Father who had neither compunction nor compassion for the tens of thousands of little boys (and girls) sodomized by his John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army. After we got rid of Cardinal Bernard Law and he resigned in disgrace, John Paul II elevated him in Rome which proves JP2 unsaintly and criminal heart as pope with the longest papacy of 26+ years.

Pope will make historic apology for abuse

Vatican hopes unprecedented act of penance at June jamboree will defuse anger over worldwide claims

By John Phillips in Rome

Sunday, 25 April 2010


Pope Benedict XVI is planning to make the first general apology for the abuse of children and minors by Roman Catholic priests when he meets thousands of clergymen from around the world in June at the climax of the International Year for Priests, Vatican sources say.

In the past there have been papal or church apologies for individual cases of paedophilia or for abuse in specific countries, for example during the German pontiff's recent visit to Malta. What is being prepared now would be the first time a pope seeks to atone publicly for the extent to which paedophilia has been a major stain on the modern history of the church touching a constellation of countries, say the sources at the Vatican's Congregation for the Clergy. It could be considered comparable to the historic step that the previous pope, John Paul II, took in apologising to the Jews for historic church anti-Semitism and for misdeeds during the Crusades, they say.

Vatican officials hope such an unprecedented act of penance by Benedict, together with thousands of clergymen in St Peter's Square, 9-11 June, will do much to lay to rest the scandal and defuse protests that might disrupt his trip to Britain in September. The encounter will form the climax of the special year of events designed in part to encourage vocations to the cloth but which instead has been marred by the mushrooming paedophile scandal.

The Pope has indicated repeatedly that he is considering ways to steer the church toward turning the page and finding an exit strategy from the maelstrom. "The shipwrecks of life can form God's project for us, and can also be useful for new beginnings in our lives," he told journalists on his aeroplane as he flew to Malta
last weekend. He made the point while travelling to celebrate the 1,950th anniversary of St Paul's shipwreck on the small island while on his way to Rome as a prisoner to stand trial, in the year 60 AD.

One veteran Vatican watcher said that using the image of the shipwreck to allude to the abuse scandal "suggests it can be read as not only causing the shipwreck of the church in countries across the globe today, from Ireland to the United States and Australia, from Austria, the Netherlands and Italy to Germany, Malta and others too, but also part of God's plan to purify, reform and revitalise the church".

In speeches during his Maltese sojourn, Benedict underlined how great good can arise from a shipwreck, as happened when St Paul's
stay led to the Maltese becoming one of the first Christian peoples and retaining their faith intact for nearly 2,000 years.

Vatican sources said the Pope considers the jamboree with the priests in June an appropriate occasion for him to lead the whole church in a "Day of Request for Pardon" of the victims and their families for the wrong done by a small percentage of priests in abusing children and minors in many countries, and the wrong done by bishops in covering up that abuse or protecting the predators.

The meeting would be appropriate for a day of fasting as well as penance, they say. On the papal flight last week-end Benedict made a second allusion to the abuse scandal, and its devastating effect on the moral authority of the church and its pastors, describing the church as the body of Jesus Christ "wounded by our sins".

The respected Vatican watcher added: "It is clear that Benedict has been reflecting and seeking to understand the abuse scandal with the eyes of faith. He seems to be developing a theological and spiritual frame for reading and dealing with this shameful and humbling reality in the life of the church in the 21st century and discerning an exit strategy from it."

Abuse victim in Malta: Pope Benedict XVI is a 'saint'


 .- Vatican analyst Andrea Tornielli spoke with Joseph Magro, 38, one of eight victims of clerical abuse who met with Pope Benedict XVI during his recent visit to Malta.  Magro said the meeting “was truly a most beautiful gift, after all this suffering, we all cried, even the Pope.”

In the interview published by the Italian daily Il Giornale, Magro, who proudly showed the rosary he was given by the Holy Father in Malta, shared details about his meeting with the Pope.

“I did not have any faith in priests. Now, after this moving experience, I have hope again.  You people in Italy have a saint. Do you realize that? You have a saint,” he said, referring to Pope Benedict XVI.

Later, explaining his discussion with the Holy Father, Magro said, “When I told him my name was Joseph, the Pope’s eyes grew wide and he said, ‘Joseph, like me!’ Then I asked him: ‘Why did the priest do this to me, why did he abuse me?’ He replied that he prays for me and we then prayed together.”

Magro said he could see that the Pope “felt great sorrow. I could see he was suffering with me.  I didn’t want to make him suffer, I didn’t tell him about the abuse that I suffered, but he wept with me, even though he had no fault in what happened.”

After admitting that he did not expect to have this emotional encounter with the Holy Father, Magro said, “This was a great gift for me, to be welcomed in this way and to be listened to by him.  I heard his speech at the airport, on Saturday afternoon.  He did not say anything about the problem of abuse.  But this morning (Sunday, April 18), at 9:00 a.m., I received a call: I was to go to the bishop’s house because I was going to see the Pope.”

“I finally have a little bit of peace thanks to this encounter.  He gave me a rosary which I now wear around my neck,” Magro said.
