Meanwhile, the event is truly exceptional and extraordinary, but its exclusivity fully corresponds to the uncommonness of the situation that the Vatican is currently experiencing, which is primarily a hierarchy of the Catholic Church, called the Holy See. There has been an intense internal struggle within the Holy See lately, which is not just a rivalry between conservative and liberal groups (it has always been), but a reflection of a more serious process aimed at such a transformation of the Vatican’s management system itself that would make them “Transparent” for the current owners of the world who have openly switched to the final stage of building a system of private power, in which the preservation of any sovereign state is unacceptable. That is, as we have repeatedly written, this is a reflection of the confrontation between the two concepts of the existence of the Vatican, one of which involves maintaining it as a sovereign entity, and the other - its gradual restructuring and integration into the global management system with the assumption that it will perform only those functions religious justification of the power of global elites. That is, the pope is seen by them solely as a herald of a new world order, precisely in this role he spoke recently - whether it was a question of the need to create a “world political power” and a “world central bank” or support for the bloody events in North Africa that demonstrate new regional management methods.
However, unlike other state entities, which are fairly easily integrated into the system of external administration, in the Vatican the power is sacred, it is an absolute theocratic monarchy, in which everything is confined to the figure of the pope. Therefore, the management system can only be changed by lowering the role of the pope as head of the church and state. In fact, today we see a repetition of the same scheme (only at a new stage in the development of relevant technologies), which was applied to the Holy See during the period of depriving it of secular power in September 1870. As follows from the shadow history of this event, the Pope’s deposition by the revolutionary Italian army It was a kind of performance designed to conceal the implementation of a long-developed plan for the pontiff's refusal of secular power over the Papal States, which was to be transferred to the new Italian Republic with all the lands, and at the same time seven long that Dad could not pay Rothschildam (about 30 million scudo). It was impossible to bankrupt papa, and a plan was developed to restructure such debts, in which both the wolves (Rothschilds) and the sheep (papa and his entourage) remained intact, only the latter were barred. True, the pope compensated for the loss of secular power by accepting at the same time the dogma of infallibility, which greatly strengthened his spiritual power.
Today, the pope’s sovereignty is also questioned, and its incorporation into the new world order takes place again using a financial mechanism, this time by achieving financial “transparency” from it, meaning in practice transferring its finances to the total control of the global banking mafia. This strikes the “holy of holies” - the most closed and untouchable structure of the Holy See - at the Vatican Bank, which is not the official institution of the Vatican, but the Pope's Bank, which is in a certain sense its sole shareholder and fully controls it.
In this regard, in the last three years Benedict XVI exerted unprecedented pressure. It began with the publication of the exposing book in 2009. D.Nuzzi “Vatican LLC”, which for the first time revealed secret schemes for transferring shadow money by the Vatican Bank, reached its apogee last fall, when even more revealing research was published Nuzzi “His Holiness”, where the entire internal kitchen of the pontiff himself was exposed to public display. It was a truly unprecedented event, showing the complete helplessness and vulnerability of the pope in relation to external forces. What kind of forces this is - no one ever learned (they tried the scapegoat), but the possibilities for blackmail were preserved, since only a smaller part of the stolen information was published in the book, while much of it was left in the hands of the customer.
Given that the growing pressure on the pope is becoming more and more daring forms, and is aimed not only at exposing the activities of the Vatican institutions, but also at compromising the pontiff himself, we can assume that the announced departure Benedict XVI it is connected not so much with his health, as with the inability to continue and further that course of maneuvering, which is becoming dangerous already, especially since the fate of the pope John paul i everyone knows, and she is no exception in the history of the Holy See. The old-timers of the Vatican are well acquainted with the management technologies of their community, and it is clear that what comes out is only a small fraction of the truth.
There is another aspect of the problem. Despite all their efforts to keep up with the times and pursue their policies in accordance with the dictates of the era of globalization, Benedict XVI in the eyes of the current global elites, it remained an extremely unmodern figure. His conservative views, based on the commitment to the traditional values of society, are in bad agreement with the dehumanization strategy of mankind, which world managers have adopted. Therefore, so neutral and formally, they responded to the news of the upcoming renunciation of power. In any case, no matter what nationality the new pope is, and from whatever environment it comes out, he will have to adapt more effectively to the requirements of advanced tolerance in order to be accepted by the world community. It is clear that the position Benedict XVI was only a kind of veil designed to conceal the process of moral decay of Western elites, but the new pontiff would be required to openly adopt modernized ethics.
In connection with all these events, another question arises that is already related to the Orthodox world. February 11 was published the comment of the DECR chairman Metropolitan Hilarion about renunciation Benedict XVIin which he, paying tribute to the personal qualities of the latter, highlighted his role in ensuring positive dynamics in the relations between the ROC and the RCC. This time Metropolitan Hilarion He did not touch upon the question of the meeting of the Pope and the Moscow Patriarch, although, as is known, he is the most consistent of its supporters.
However, this gap was filled by the DECR secretary for inter-Christian relations, Archpriest Dmitry Sizonenko in his answers to the questions of RIA Novosti. Stressing that there is no reason to suppose that the positive dynamics in Orthodox-Catholic relations will undergo any changes (since there is an “organic system of checks and balances”), he raised the issue of the meeting and said that it remains “equally necessary and actual, whoever was the new dad. " “She also needs to prepare and go in this direction. But this meeting should be the result of some kind of development of relations, we just have not reached the level of relations at which this meeting would be possible. ”1.
It is indicative that care Benedict XVI It becomes a pretext for the allegation that the Patriarch of Moscow and the Pope of Rome are inevitable. I think that we need to be as persistent as DECR employees, and use every opportunity to repeat simple truths:
«The mission of the Holy See towards Russia remains unchanged: it aims at changing the foundations of the Russian spiritual system, at eroding the centuries-old ideological principles formed by the Orthodox faith, and, as a result, at absorption of Orthodoxy by Catholicism under the authority of the Roman pontiff. All the last steps taken by the Holy See to draw us into close cooperation and rapprochement with Catholicism, whose crown should be the meeting of the Pope of Rome with the Moscow Patriarch, are aimed at this.
In the plans of the Vatican, this meeting is of particular importance. After all, the core idea of Catholicism, which provides a rigid hierarchical structure of its entire system and turns it into a powerful organized force, is the idea of papal primacy. It is expressed in the recognition of the Roman pontiff as the vicar of Christ on earth, the visible head of the Ecumenical Church, with full, supreme and universal authority. This power is supported by the dogma of the infallibility of the papal teachings on matters of faith and morality. Since this idea of the primacy of the Roman pontiff deeply contradicts the teachings of Jesus Christ and is the main source of all the errors of the Roman church, Orthodoxy defines Catholicism as heresy. Therefore, the meeting of the Moscow Patriarch with the Pope will be for the Vatican a sign of recognition of his false teachings as true and will allow him to consider the Russian Orthodox Church to be in the sphere of his actual influence."2.
Let us remind the DECR staff members of the words of the Holy Fathers they forgot about the papism heresy:
St. Theophan the Recluse (1894):
«The Latin church is of apostolic origin, but retreated from apostolic traditions and was damaged. Her main sin is the passion for forging new tenets ... The Latins damaged and spoiled the Holy Faith, the faithful Saints of the Holy Apostles ...»
«To believe in Latin ... there is a deviation from the Church, heresy».
St. Ignatius (Bryanchaninov) (1867):
«Papism is the so-called heresy, which declared the West, from which various Protestant teachings originated, as from the tree of the branch. Papism assigns the properties of Christ to the Pope and thereby rejects Christ. Some Western writers almost explicitly pronounced this renunciation, saying that far less sin is the renunciation of Christ than the sin of renunciation of the pope. Papa is the idol of the papists, he is their deity.
Because of this terrible delusion, the grace of God departed from the papists; they are devoted to themselves and to Satan - the inventor and father of all heresies, among others, p-pism. In this state of defilement, they distorted some dogmas and sacraments, and the Divine Liturgy was deprived of its essential meaning, throwing out of it the invocation of the Holy Spirit and the blessing of the offered bread and wine, in which they transfigured into the Body and Blood of Christ ... and insolently unreasonable pride of their own, cruel contempt for people and hatred for them».
