- The Facts:Vatican insider Carlo Maria Vigano, “Titular Archbishop of Ulpiana Apostolic Nuncio,” has accused Pope Francis of facilitating sexual abuse of Children. Author and journalist Kevin Annett has done the same presenting some disturbing evidence.
- Reflect On:How has the sexual abuse of children been allowed to carry on in places of high power in influence for so long? Who is exactly involved? Does this go all the way to the top?
If you don’t already know, a number of Vatican officials over the years have been implicated in sexually abusing children. In fact, it goes well beyond the main church inside the walls of Vatican city, and into various churches around the world that are connected to the Roman Catholic Order, among others.
Although there is probably much more going on behind the scenes that has yet to be revealed, the criminal actions of many high-ranking members have still come to light, with the most recent example being Cardinal George Pell. Pell was just convicted on five counts of child sexual abuse. He has now become the most senior official ever to be found guilty, serving as an advisor to Pope Benedict as well as Pope Francis. He’s one of the Vatican’s most powerful officials.
In addition, decades worth of sexual abuse was reported in a choir led by the retired Pope Benedict’s brother. Approximately 600 members of a Catholic boys’ Domspatzen choir in Regensburg, Germany were physically and sexually abused from 1945 to 1992. Georg Ratzinger (Benedict’s brother) was the choir’s head from 1964 to 1994. In 2015, a lawyer by the name of Ulrich Weber was tasked with filing a report on what happened, and uncovered the startling fact that during the 30 years the choir was run by Benedict’s older brother, approximately 600 boys with a “high degree of plausibility” were victims of sexual and/or physical abuse.
The list literally goes on and on. Not long ago, 34 Chilean Bishops from the Catholic Church were implicated in the sexual abuse of young boys. You can read more about that here.
What’s even more disturbing is that this type of activity bleeds down from the Church and into Royal Families, politics, and big entertainment. It seems to be quite common in places of great power, and perhaps they’re all tied together somehow in one ‘big club.’ This thought used to be a ‘conspiracy theory,’ but people are now starting to see that it’s a fact.
But why does this issue never get resolved? It’s an important question to ask. These are very powerful people who basically control the judicial system as well as the mainstream media. Because of their power, they are able to protect themselves from ‘punishment.’ Let’s use the Catholic Church, for example, who is headed by the Pope, a person who could very well have been placed there by higher authorities and is simply another puppet used for their power.
Perhaps one reason this issue hasn’t been solved within the Vatican is because the Pope himself is involved in this type of activity. Carlo Maria Vigano, “Titular Archbishop of Ulpiana Apostolic Nuncio,” retired in 2016 after serving as the Apostolic Nuncio to the United States. He also previously served as Secretary-General of the Governor of Vatican City state from July 16th, 2009 to September 3rd, 2011.
He recently released a bombshell 11-page written testament that offers information on “who in the hierarchy knew what, and when, about the crimes of Cardinal McCarrick.” The testimony implicates multiple high-ranking officials within the church including Pope Francis. McCarrick was recently removed from his post in June 2018 because of child sexual abuse allegations. This document shows how that process was delayed (his activities were learned of nearly two decades ago), and how the Pope did as much as he could to protect McCarrick.
Why would the Pope do such a thing?
Before we go any further, I think it’s important to mention the ritualistic aspect in this type of activity. Not long ago, the Pope compared the practice of sexually abusing a child to that of a “Satanic mass.” Based on our own research, we believe that this type of abuse to children is used in Satanic rituals. This is why it was odd when he said this, which also sparked a reaction from his colleague standing next to him.
