Is Pope Francis a representative of Freemasonry? How long has the usurpation of the Vatican been planned? Could Benedict XVI have perhaps not resigned from the Papacy and is therefore still the official Pope?

We will show what promises to clear up any doubts about how the Argentinian Jorge Bergoglio came to be the highest authority of the Catholic Church and what is happening in the Vatican today.

The information comes from Spanish journalist Arturo Picatoste, who specializes in religious topics.

In dialogue with the program Distrito TV, Picatoste recounted the reasons that led to the resignation of Benedict XVI.

It should be recalled that in 2017, citing several sources, including the WikiLeaks platform, Catholic leaders claimed that George Soros, Barack Obama, Joe Biden, and Hillary Clinton orchestrated a coup in the Vatican so that the conservative Pope Benedict XVI would resign. Then they could replace him with the leftist Pope Francis in a plan they called “Catholic Spring.”

Recall that from 2005 to 2013, Pope Benedict XVI held the Pope’s office but resigned under unusual circumstances.

This group of Catholic leaders sent a letter to U.S. President Donald Trump—as soon as he took office in January 2017 to investigate this sabotage at the top of the Catholic Church.

These Catholic leaders include attorney and international children’s rights advocate Elizabeth Yore and attorney, pro-life activist, journalist, founder, and current president of the American Catholic Lawyers Association, Christopher A. Ferrara.

In their open letter to Donald Trump, published on the traditionalist Catholic site, The Remnant, they state:

“We have reason to believe that a Vatican ‘regime change’ was engineered by the Obama administration.”

“We were alarmed to discover that, during the third year of the first term of the Obama administration your previous opponent, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and other government officials with whom she associated proposed a Catholic ‘revolution’ in which the final demise of what was left of the Catholic Church in America would be realized.”

The claims of this group of Catholics are substantiated.

In 2016, WikiLeaks leaked emails from Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager, John Podesta, where this senior Democratic Party leader and other progressives discussed regime change to eliminate what they described as the “middle ages dictatorship” in the Catholic Church.

Pointedly, in the emails leaked by Wikileaks, it was discovered that Podesta and other activists were working to bring about a “Catholic Spring” revolution.

This “Catholic Spring” is an apparent reference to the disastrous “Arab Spring” coups organized simultaneously, i.e., between 2011 and 2012, by the Obama-Clinton-Soros team.

Let us recall that this “Arab Spring” destabilized the Middle East and brought to power radical Islamist regimes and terrorist groups in the region.

Evidently, something analogous was planned by Podesta, Clinton, and Soros with the Vatican: remove Benedict XVI and put in a radical leftist man: Bergoglio.

In their letter to President Trump, the group of Catholic leaders describes in amazement how in 2013, just one year after the exchange of emails between Podesta and his cronies in 2012, incredibly Benedict XVI ended up resigning:

“Approximately a year after this e-mail discussion, which was never intended to be made public, we find that Pope Benedict XVI abdicated under highly unusual circumstances and was replaced by a pope whose apparent mission is to provide a spiritual component to the radical ideological agenda of the international left.”

In fact, according to Spanish journalist Arturo Picatoste, the Obama Administration closely followed the movements of Benedict XVI’s last days, spying on him:

“Under the Obama Administration, the U.S. National Security Agency from Dec. 2012, spied on telephone conversations in Vatican City during the entire conclave,” Picatoste explained.

According to this Spanish journalist, and per what the letter of the Catholic leaders wrote in 2017, to strike the final blow, the Obama Administration, together with George Soros and other financiers, controlled the movement of money from the Vatican in the last days of Benedict XVI, in such a way that he had no way out. He had to resign.

“… Benedict’s Vatican was not allowed to do so [continue banking].” Indeed, the day after he announced on Feb. 11, 2013, that he was going to resign, the possibility of handling money reopened.

In his argument, the Spanish journalist cited various investigations that support these facts, such as a Jan. 7, 2015, publication by Avvenire, the Italian bishops’ newspaper.

During the interview, Picatoste quoted an excerpt from that Avvenire publication: “Benedict XVI was the object of a betrayal and a conspiracy by which he was coerced to resign.”

Furthermore, on page two of Avvenire, Editorial Section, under the editorship of Marco Tarquinio, again according to Picatoste’s quote, it reads: “There were environments that, for reasons of power and harassment, betrayed and plotted to eliminate Pope Ratzinger and forced him to resign.”

The journalist Picatoste is part of many researchers who go a step further and affirm that the Argentinean Jorge Mario Bergoglio was placed at the top of the Vatican due to the intervention of dark elites.

For what purpose? The purpose was to undermine the religious institution and promote leftist political ideas, and this plan reaches back decades and even centuries.

Systematic arrangements had been planned for a long time.

Co-opting the Vatican is one of the latest steps in this sinister plan.

“It is very characteristic that image that you see when on Feb. 28, [2013] Benedict is giving the last speech to the cardinals and the cameras focus on the cardinals. And when at that moment they focus on Bergoglio, he realizes and puts his hand on his chest, which is the symbol of Masonic obedience, for many seconds, all the time the camera is focusing on him. Then he makes that same gesture again when he goes out to the balcony when he is elected in that false conclave.”

Why did Picatoste say that it was a “false conclave”? Because—he says—according to the resignation document, the official pope is still Benedict XVI.

“We are very clear that [Jorge Bergoglio] is not pope. He is a false pope. He is an antipope. This is already demonstrated juridically, very clearly. In fact, recently some statements have come out that Benedict XVI published in a book by Peter Seewald in 2016, in which he made it very clear that he had not resigned from the munus but only resigned from the ministry. Therefore, according to it, it remains according to the code of canon law, it delimits that his resignation is not valid and that he remains the only reigning pope.”

“That false conclave is a dead letter. Because if the resignation is invalid, then Bergoglio is not pope and that conclave was useless”.

Now, what is certain is that once in power, Bergoglio has set the new course of the globalist-communist infiltration of the Catholic Church.

And a clear example of this is his betrayal of the Chinese Catholic faithful and his flirtation with the Red Beast: the Chinese Communist Party.

“Benedict XVI received serious death threats, coming from China, curiously enough. Country with which then Bergoglio will make in Sept. 2018 the secret pact. Benedict XVI had previously been presented with a pact with China, we do not know if it is the same, and he did not want to sign it. Bergoglio did sign a secret pact with China, which Cardinal [Joseph] Zen has not even seen, and we are already seeing what it is being: a persecution for the Chinese Catacumbal Church, which is the faithful Chinese Catholic Church. [Bergoglio] has joined the Chinese schismatic Communist Party, and it’s just that schismatics get along well with each other. That is Bergoglio.”

To conclude, from his spiritual gaze, from his faith, the journalist Picatoste explains that all these maneuvers are nothing more than the concretization of the plan of evil on Earth:

“All these people are serving the Antichrist. They are preparing for it, although it may seem exaggerated, but it is so. Bergoglio is paving the way for the Antichrist. To the world government. This whole Agenda 2030 is nothing more than preparing the world government for the Antichrist.”

As they say, there are no arguments against facts. More and more information is coming to light about the infiltration of Freemasonry in the Vatican, which, as we were saying, dates back many years. It has been a systematic plan to reach the top of the Catholic Church. And that moment has arrived. It is up to the Catholic faithful, believers in general, and good people to become aware of this sabotage to the Catholic faith.
