Marcantonio Colonna explains why he wrote ‘The Dictator Pope’




excerpts from Life Site News’ interview 
with Marcantonio Colonna

What did you find most interesting, surprising, or shocking in your research?
In fact my book is mainly based on a long series of articles which have already exposed many aspects of Francis's pontificate, but the world's media have preferred to take no notice of them. A personal contribution of mine has been to transmit to the rest of the world the estimate of Bergoglio that had long been held in Argentina. In researching Bergoglio’s past, one of the most significant pieces of evidence I came across was the report written by his religious superior [Father Peter Hans Kolvenbach] in 1991 when it was proposed to make Bergoglio a bishop. The Jesuit General wrote that Bergoglio was not suitable for such an appointment, that he was a man of devious character, lacking psychological balance, and had been a divisive figure as Provincial of the Jesuits in Argentina. The existence of this report has long been known, and I received the account of it from a priest who read the document himself at the time.
What’s your overall view of Pope Francis in light of what you discovered?
My view of Pope Francis is mainly formed from researching his Argentinian background. He emerges as a flawed character, who is capable of impressing people profoundly and forming warm friendships, but who, as one of his priest friends remarked, “manipulates people through the affections.” This characteristic has enabled him to establish a skillful ascendancy over his subordinates in Rome, as he had done previously in Buenos Aires. Bergoglio is also very much the product of the peculiar political culture of Argentina, formed by the populist dictator Juan Perón, of whom Bergoglio was a follower from his early years, and whom he very much resembles in his style of government.
Even some who have praised the book for its thorough research call it tendentious. How do you defend these claims?
My book can only be called tendentious in the sense that it makes a case; but it makes it on the basis of a vast array of facts, which are fairly presented. By contrast, the current public image of Pope Francis is a PR exercise which bears no relation to reality.
The book is well researched and heavily footnoted, but not where you speak of allegations that the Vatican made financial contributions to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. Why did you include these allegations in the book?
This accusation was made to me unambiguously by a contact in the Vatican, whose identity I have to protect. However, the allegation is quite well known to journalists. With this and other scandals I mention, my desire was to encourage further investigation by researchers who are better qualified than I am to delve into financial matters.

Uh oh, the Star of Bethlehem is crashing to earth!


We have to hand it to Francis, this year for the Vatican’s Nativity Scene he didn’t put a boat in it as he did last year.  Below are a few photos and one video of the creche.  From a distance it looks like a traditional presepe until one gets closer and can examine the details.  


Nothing like a dead body in a Nativity Scene.

This is where Francis belongs in jail.

Not only does a naked muscle bound man make an appearance at the 
creche, he totally ignores where the Infant Christ will be placed.



Ostensibly the reason given for this mockery is that the Nativity Scene’s theme this year is the seven corporal works of mercy.  Francis can’t help himself can he?  The focus isn’t on Our Lord’s birth but on the grotesque and macabre sideshows.  What can one say about this scattered and disoriented Nativity other than it is sacrilegious and shows the spiritual emptiness of Francis and his cohorts. To call this art in honor of and worthy of the birth of Our Savior, Jesus the Christ, is pure mockery.


The unveiling of the grotesque immodest macabre Crib!

the new evangelization in Australia


Thanks to the reader who wrote, telling us to view the videos from the Australian Catholic Youth Festival (ACYF).  We couldn’t distinguish the ACYF from a protestant tent revival other than grown men dressed as bishops making fools of themselves and a priest with face paint on for adoration because the novus ordo’s adoration isn’t cool enough unless it has an aboriginal flair to it.  What passes for the faith in the Novus Ordo is an emotional laded experience with the participants dressed immodestly as they make a mockery of sacraments of the Church with their new, man-made, and ‘improved’ post-Vatican II versions.  How sad...

If one so wishes to watch this monstrosity in its fullness they can by clicking on the following links:






...otherwise one can watch the toned down highlight video and the two bishops videos below to get an idea of this travesty of the Catholic faith.

The mind of Bergoglio


Jorge Mario Bergoglio Una biographia intellettuale (Jorge Mario 
Bergoglio An Intellectual Biography) by Massimo Borghesi


excerpts from

After the many narrative biographies of Pope Francis, here is the first one that rightly bears the title of “intellectual biography.” Its author, Massimo Borghesi, is professor of moral philosophy at the University of Perugia and has been very close to Jorge Mario Bergoglio since long before he was elected pope, on a par with that circle of friends whose best-known name is that of the vaticanista Andrea Tornielli, all of them belonging to the Roman branch of Communion and Liberation that was headed by the priest Giacomo Tantardini.

But in addition to coming from Borghesi’s pen, this book is also the offspring of the spoken word of Pope Francis himself, who on four occasions - the two most recent being on March 13, 2017, the fourth anniversary of his pontificate - sent to the author audio recordings that are repeatedly cited in the text and all aimed at identifying the sources of his formation.

It is a biography, therefore, that is in part an autobiography as well. And it is motivated precisely by a revelation made here for the first time by Bergoglio himself, according to whom at the origin of his thought is the French Jesuit theologian Gaston Fessard - a brilliant scholar of Hegel without being a Hegelian - with his 1956 book on the “dialectic” of the “Spiritual Exercises” of Saint Ignatius.

It is in fact above all from Fessard - as Borghesi confirms and substantiates - that Bergoglio got his markedly antinomian thinking, so fond of contradictions. But then came other prominent authors to reinforce this way of thinking, Erich Przywara and Henri de Lubac, both of them also Jesuits, Alberto Methol Ferré, an Uruguayan philosopher, and above all, but belatedly, Romano Guardini, with his youthful 1925 essay entitled “Der Gegensatz,” “Polar opposition,” on which Bergoglio wanted to base his doctoral thesis during the few months he spent studying in Germany in 1986, a thesis that was quickly dropped and never written.

Borghesi deftly illustrates the thinking of these great theologians and philosophers. To them he adds, among the inspirations to whom Bergoglio himself says he is a debtor, other first-rate stars like Michel de Certeau and Hans Urs von Balthasar. And he does all he can to demonstrate how in the writings of Bergoglio both far and near in time, before and after his election as pope, the genius of his teachers lives again.
[...]
The little known, Fr. Gaston Fessard was a friend of Teilhard de Chardin 
whom he corresponded with as well as Gabriel Marcel, Raymond Aron, 
Emmanuel Mounier, Claude Levy-Strauss among others.  Cardinal Henri 
de Lubac was an admirer.

It is true that Francis himself revealed three years ago, to the Argentine authors of another biography of his, that the chapter of “Evangelii Gaudium” with the four postulates is the transcription of a piece of his uncompleted doctoral thesis on Guardini.

But to see how this student exercise of his - an exercise now upgraded as pontifical magisterium - inevitably falls apart if its is subjected to the slightest elementary analysis, one gets the impression that the gap between Bergoglio and his celebrated teachers is truly very profound:

[...]

As for the nature of the Church as "complexio oppositorum,” meaning a combination of institution and event, of mystery/sacrament and word, of individuality and community, of interiority and public worship, the pontificate of Francis shows how he does not at all love this reciprocal enrichment between opposites, but on the contrary wants to suppress or disregard that which in one or the other opposition he sees as static or obsolete. His coldness toward the liturgy is plain for all to see, as is his insensitivity to the category of the beautiful and his underappreciation of doctrine and institution.

It must be said - and Borghesi recognizes this - that Bergoglio has never studied and assimilated the entire work of his teachers, but has only read a few isolated things, taking pointers from them in his own way.

And this explains the nonhomogeneity of his writings, magisterial as well, in which he combines the most diverse materials.

But it explains even more the gaping discrepancy between his illustrious teachers and the concrete figures of whom Pope Francis avails himself as his confidants and ghostwriters: from the Jesuit Antonio Spadaro, a rhetorical yarnspinner, to the Argentine Víctor Manuel Fernández, a theologian with a less than mediocre reputation, who revealed himself to the world with a first work entitled “Sáname con tu boca. El arte de besar,” and yet was encouraged by his friend who had become pope to go so far as to transcribe into “Amoris Laetitia” whole sections of his confused articles from a dozen years before, on family morality.

Another sign of confusion is the equal “preference” that Francis reserves for the two French theologians dearest to him, de Lubac and de Certeau, showing that he is unaware that de Lubac broke with de Certeau, his former pupil, and leveled harsh criticism against him: he accused him of being a “Joachimite” infatuated, like the visionary medieval friar, with a presumed golden age of pure spirit, free from any constraint of the ecclesiastical institution.

Moreover, in the “intellectual biography” of Bergoglio written by Borghesi, there are glaring omissions. There is total silence on Walter Kasper, in spite of the fact that Francis declared himself to be a reader and admirer of his from his first “Angelus” after being elected pope, and then rewarded him with boundless praise - for knowing how to do “theology on one’s knees” - and also promoted him as theologian-guide of the turning points on the matters of marriage and divorce and the primacy of the local Churches over the universal Church.

Nor is there so much as a word on Rodolfo Kusch, the Argentine anthropologist whose concept of people Francis recently said he had assimilated. And this in spite of the fact that in Borghesi’s book there are many pages on Bergoglio’s “populism.”

We at Call Me Jorge... would add that this book also leaves out the influence of Chasidic philosophy from which Francis draws heavily.  This shows up most strongly in his regular inversions of the Gospels due to his reading them through Talmudic lenses and when he chastises the common Catholic pewsitter with a verbal barrage (Neopelagian!, Pharisee!, spiritual mummy!, petitioner for certainty in all things! creed reciting parrot Christian!, etc...) for dare resisting his revolutionary changes.  If one is ever confused at what Francis has said, from that he wants “shepherds living with the smell of the sheep” to “But Lord, throw a banana peel in front of them, so that they will take a good fall [into sin]” the place to begin is with the extreme depravity of Hasidism.

Francis receives a tongue lashing from a Cardinal


‘We elected you to make reforms, not to destroy everything.’


Francis had a private audience with this cardinal 
three days after the incident was reported in the media.


Last Friday, Italian Marco Tosatti reported on his blog (bold is ours for emphasis),
“And, if what we have learned from two different sources is true, perhaps it is an annoyance also shared in the Vatican. A cardinal of great renown, an ex-diplomat, and one with an important curriculum as the head of Congregations and other important offices in the Secretariat of State, has reproached the Pope for his actions, saying in essence: ‘We elected you to make reforms, not to smash (destroy) everything.’ The news spread itself around the Vatican because the conversation, if it can be called a conversation, took place at high decibel levels, which overwhelmed the fragile barrier of the doors and the walls. The cardinal in question was one of those who supported the candidacy of Jorge Mario Bergoglio in the conclave of 2013.”

 Cardinal Leonardo Sandri like Francis hails from Argentina.


Today the German website, katholisches.info, identified the mystery cardinal as none other than Francis’ fellow countryman,
“Francis received his compatriot Leonardo Cardinal Sandri. The cardinal, born like Francis in Buenos Aires, is the son of Italian immigrants but seven years younger than the pope. Ordained priest in 1967, he was secretary to the then Archbishop of Buenos Aires and sent to Rome in 1971 to attend the Diplomatic Academy of the Holy See. He joined the State Secretariat in 1974 and served as Apostolic Nuncio in Venezuela from 1997 to 2000, then in Mexico for a few more months, to be appointed as a substitute to the State Secretariat by John Paul II at the end of 2000. As such, he announced in April 2005 the death of the Polish Pope.
In 2007, Pope Benedict XVI appointed him. became Prefect of the Congregation for the Oriental Churches and elevated him to the cardinal's office in the same year. In 2013 he was in the conclave to the voters of his compatriot Jorge Mario Cardinal Bergoglio. One of not a few cardinals who supported the archbishop of Buenos Aires, contrary to the legend, that Bergoglio's election was an uprising against the Roman Curia.”

Francis can’t seem to help but sow discord and chaos as he continues on with his revolutionary program.



Who knew that Amoris Laetitia and its fall out would be so entertaining?
