    TY Jack for bringing this link to our attention.

    The Catholic church obviously has been infiltrated. It is the #1 target of the devil. There is a little book that is supposedly the memoirs of an infiltrator under I believe Stalin.
    The name of the book is _AA-1025, The Memoirs of an Antii-Apostle_ by Marie Carre.

    Thankfully, Jesus said He would not leave us orphaned. But He did not say we wouldn’t have troubles.

    When we look at all of the dissident and insolent hierarchy, the infiltration of the seminaries, and the abuse scandals, it becomes more and more obvious that the devil has targeted the one institution that has held firm (in teachings and dogma) to the way of Christ and the early Church.

    However, I don’t think this is the reason for the Holy Father’s abdication of the Throne of Peter.

    My thought is that the Holy Father sees, knows that the coming Christine persecution will be long and will endure past his lifetime.

    Because of his age and physical condition, he may wind up dying in the midst of it, or wouldn’t have the stamina left to deal with it. Many traditional cardinals have been incardinated (I’m not sure that is the proper word here.)by both him and JPII. Now is the time to have an election of his successor, not in the midst of utter turmoil.

    He gave us a hint that he may abdicate about 3 years ago. His “hint was Benedict’s devotion to Pope Ceelestine V,who resigned the papacy in 1294.” (The Wanderer, Feb.21, 2013, by Robert Moynihan.)

    The Anchoress suggested that Benedict’s abdication might have to do with his desire/divine call to engage in spiritual warfare on a sustained basis, within a monastic setting, undistracted by the demands of the Papacy:

    I think that this idea, coupled with what Plain Jane states above, is quite possible.

    Few outside of Benedict’s closest circle would know how much this played a part in his quitting. At 85, probably a lot of things played a part.

    I have no doubt that the report is accurate. I’ve always maintained that it’s queer that some Catholics, former Catholics and non-Catholics criticize or mock the Church about the ‘sex scandal’ but refuse to criticize homosexuals that created it. And this story will be used to perpetuate that hatred of the values of the Church when in fact the values never changed regarding the abomination of homosexual acts. And just imagine what these same critics would have screamed if the Church would have called for an Inquisition to eradicate homo’s from their ranks. It seems critics hate the Church’s teaching and want to deflect any criticism of homosexuals. Benedict obviously wasn’t going along with the Pink Mafia.

    Here’s a little more on the matter.

    Oh, so much to learn and so little time to learn it in!

    Maryfrom Marin and Pegon Sellschmidt – Thank you for this information. I’ve been trying to get to read that article for a little while now Mary. Time! The author makes perfect sense, with much clarity.

    Pegon, I think I’m going to subscribe to The Vortex. I have to find the link to the report.

    Thank you both.

    The infiltration is so apparent in a number of churches that I’ve attended. It is also apparent in some-no strike that – many dioceses that I’ve had miniscule dealings with.

    When you look at say the diocese of Lincoln Nebraska, entrants to the priesthood is thriving under the awesome and faithful Bishop Bruskewitz. The dioceses of wimpy bishops, not so much.

    Thank you Plain Jane, Mary and Pegon for your input and assessment. I wasn’t sure if this was just another national enquirer styled article.

    @ Jack

    You are most welcome. I hope we were somewhat helpful and I’m glad you posted the article.

    There is so much “out there” from people who think they know what they don’t know, and the worst and loudest are quite often the liberal “Catholics in name only.” Kind of like having Sen Kennedy write about sobriety or Clinton lecturing the populace about marital vows.
