Around Rome…

This is what the Lord says:

“Stand by the ways and see and ask for the ancient paths,

Where the good way is, and walk in it;

Then you will find a resting place for your souls.

But they said, ‘We will not walk in it.’

Jeremiah 6:16

Word on the Street

My guess is common knowledge among faithful Catholics in Italy, found in the press for all to read, is but a whisper in most American Dioceses. I say this because digging into the underbelly of our hierarchy in Rome for the past four years reveals a plethora of inconvenient truths, that, if acknowledged by our bishops and priests, would change the face of America’s complacent Church.

One of the early truths I came across in 2018 was that several faithful believed Pope Benedict did not actually resign of free will and left clues that faithful Catholics would follow. The several faithful have grown in numbers, including religious. Yesterday, I found an article published in an Italian blog, went to the source (Italian can be converted to read in English), and checked the article’s links. I placed the piece here because it is much easier for you to read, and article links are in the footnotes below for your reference.

In the historical action of God, the truth is gradually revealed.” 

Benedict XVI, Pope Emeritus

However, today I found another source in Italy that is very easy to read. Before reading the rest of this post, I encourage you to pay a quick visit to Sfero – Spheres of Interest – and give the article Ratzinger’s Ticonio reveals impeded See and Fatima: Bergoglio is a white bishop a quick read HERE. Sfero is a new social media website. I liked this article because it links to Marco Tosatti, a renowned Italian journalist. Since 1981, he has covered the religious and political activity of the Holy See at the Vatican and also writes for the daily newspaper La Stampa.  He has directed his readers towards the articles I’m sharing here, which tells us the source should be worth consideration. If you’ve read the article at Sfero, you might understand Fr. Benko’s decision better.

Don Benko, another priest, declares himself faithful to Benedict XVI: Bergoglio is not the pope1

Andrea Cionci

September 10, 2022

In the most absolute indifference of the mainstream Vaticanista, the most sensational story of the Church since the times of the Western Schism is unfolding. Priest-heroes continue to come forth and declare their fidelity to the true Pope, Benedict XVI, who, as you know very well by now, has never abdicated, but, forced to get out of the way, withdrew in an impeded see, (canon 412)2  — a canonical situation of imprisonment — that allows him to remain the only pope as he has been talking about for nine years without ever being able to specify which of the two., Clearly, if we go to an upcoming conclave with the approximately 120 false cardinals appointed by Bergoglio, another antipope will be elected, and goodbye forever visible canonical Church. She will go back to the catacombs.

The impeded see is nothing abstruse or quirky: it has existed since the pontifical “decretals”, that is, since 1200, and canon 335 explicitly identifies it as an alternative to a vacant see: “While the Roman see is vacant or TOTALLY IMPEDED, nothing is to be changed in the governance of the universal Church.”

Therefore, if the pope renounces the Petrine munus, he abdicates, and the see is vacant. If the pope cannot exercise the ministerium, practical power  – as per the Declaratio of Pope Benedict – the see is prevented, he remains pope, imprisoned. Ergo, anyone who exercises papal power in his place is a usurper antipope. We have been affirming this for two years, here, twice a week. Now also in the bestseller “Codice Ratzinger” (Byoblu ed. May 2022).   

And no one has been able to deny us, not even the publicly questioned canonists who, in Bologna, in response, after the legal discovery situation, have set up a study group “On the pope emeritus and the pope impeded.” (“Emeritus” does not mean retired, but the one who deserves, who has the right to be pope).

Therefore, however inconvenient, the clergy and the faithful must choose which side to be on: whether with the real pope impeded or with the reigning antipope.

Herefore, however inconvenient, the clergy and the faithful must choose which side to be on: whether with the real pope impeded or with the reigning antipope.

Andrea Cionci

The first priest (in Italy) to choose to follow Christ and his Vicar was Don Alessandro Minutella, a priest from Palermo with two doctorates in dogmatic theology who immediately understood that Bergoglio certainly could not be the pope, with his inverted and antichrist spirituality: Bergogliism. Don Minutella paid dearly for his fidelity to the true pontiff: a suspension a divinis, two excommunications, a reduction to the lay state. Obviously, all invalid, as the sanctions were imposed by the anti-papal church. After him, Don Enrico Bernasconi, also invalidly excommunicated and with pride. Then Friar Celestino, Father Gebhardt (German), Father Johannes (Austrian), Father Pavel (Czech), and Father Natale joined them. There are several nuns, which we will discuss in time.

Today we offer you some lines summarized from a full interview by Samuel Colombo with Fr Robert Benko, 52-year-old “ex” Salesian from Slovakia, ordained in 2002, who has made important statements.3

Father, what made you say in conscience that the Pope is and still remains Benedict XVI?

A. “From the first moment, I knew that Benedict XVI is the real Pope. When he resigned, I did not understand Latin and did not know what was happening, but in my heart, I felt something was wrong. However, I could not give myself an answer at that time because I had no material. The first thing I heard after Bergoglio’s election, which our diocesan priests in Šaštín (but not only) told us, was that the election was invalid because the rules had not been respected”.

And why didn’t these priests come out?

A. “At that time, when I heard that she was invalid, I wanted to leave immediately, but they told me: “If you go out, what will you do by yourself? You do nothing alone. So you can at least do something for the people who are left. You must not fear that in the Vatican, they allow things to be done against our faith “, so I preferred to remain silent because I did not have many elements.”

Perhaps the right time had to come… And in the course of all these years, you would surely have seen the nefarious work of the so-called Pope Francis …

A. “Yes, that’s right. When I was in the last city, Michalovce, I heard about these “Dubia” that the cardinals wrote … Then other priests and other people joined, but the question was not resolved. So I started looking and, over time (4 or 5 years ago), I found Don Minutella, and I started listening to him. He was the first priest who helped me with the Code of Canon Law because there is not much time to deepen things when you work with children or young people. Instead, Don Minutella studied a lot. I felt this was the truth. He burned in my heart. But I didn’t know how to get out. I have had meetings with superiors for 14 months. Two years ago, Don Bernasconi helped me because he sent me an email with material I could use to write to superiors and explain the problem. I asked so many questions asking for an answer. They studied my questions and replied: “We don’t know how to answer you, but we are with Pope Francis. There have been many bad popes in history; we know he is not good, but we are with him.”

But the problem is not that Bergoglio is a bad Pope. Bergoglio is not the Pope, and they are with someone who is not the Pope!

A. “Yes, this is very clear. Because here we are not dealing with a sin of a superior, a bishop or a Pope, or an error… it is a question of someone who is not a Pope!”

It may be a foregone conclusion given that “Ubi Petrus Ibi Ecclesia”, but in union with those who celebrate Mass, Father Robert?

A. “Before leaving, I was already celebrating mass with Pope Benedict because the churches were closed during the pandemic. So when I celebrated Holy Mass alone, I celebrated it in union with Pope Benedict. But when I had to celebrate in the community, they forced me to appoint Pope Francis. This was the problem. This is why I did not obey. And I didn’t want to join the other communities during those 14 months. My superior told me: “Now I know that you are with Pope Benedict, but I cannot let you go out immediately. You have to disobey over and over again, so I have material for the superior to let you go”. It is not easy to leave the Salesian community. But if they have material of disobedience … once, twice, three times … “.

But these Salesian priests, your superiors, who sanctioned it and made sure it came out, how do they think?

A. “They had pain in their hearts, they were sad, they didn’t want me to go out. Because they knew something was wrong, they couldn’t answer me. It is a serious thing to say “we do not know how to answer you”: then what are we talking about if you do not know how to answer me?
From December 2021, I am no longer among the Salesians, but I was very happy, even if my confreres were sad because they loved me. In my heart, I am and will always be a Salesian.”

Are there other priests in Slovakia who may not have come out yet but who recognize Pope Benedict XVI as?

A. “Yes, there are, both diocesan and Salesian, but they live in hiding because they are afraid of losing their jobs. Even teachers in schools understand that this is not the teaching of the Church, but they must continue because without money they cannot support the family.”

So they are kept, let’s say, under blackmail … Is there any bishop in Slovakia that you recognize as Pope Benedict XVI?

A. “Yes, but I can’t say the name.”

Considering the fact that Bergoglio has created a new false church, as prophesied by Padre Pio in a dialogue with Father Amorth, in your opinion, are the masses celebrated in union with the so-called Pope Francis to be considered valid?

A. “No, absolutely not. The Holy Spirit is the spirit of truth. When the sacraments are received in union with the true head of the Church, then the Holy Spirit descends.” (Card. Ratzinger also said, “without communion with the pope, there is no communion with Christ”).

You have been suspended a divinis, but you have not been excommunicated yet …

A. “No .. but now I have learned that in Trnava, it is said that the archbishop of Bratislava, Stanislav Zvolenský, wants to excommunicate me because he has heard that we are growing and we are increasing.”

Let’s say that the so-called Pope Francis is the spiritual guide of the New World Order. Do you agree with this statement?

A. “Yes, that’s clear.”

And are we living, in your opinion, the Third Secret of Fatima and that sham of which the Catechism of the Catholic Church speaks in 675?

A. “Yes, exactly.”


In all this, Pope Benedict does not speak, cannot, given that he is in an impeded see, and he does not deny these priests nor anyone who speaks of an impeded see, much less the writer. Indeed, in a letter a few days ago to the Gioacchino da Fiore Studio Center, he wrote: “In the historical action of God, the truth is gradually revealed.” 

And who has ears to hear, understand.

Finding the Ancient Paths

I’m glad you’ve stopped by ORCatholic today and taken the time to read the materials here! Reading them reaffirmed to me, once again, that one of the purposes of ORCatholic is to encourage Catholics to dig into information surfacing about today’s Church not found in Vatican-controlled media. The controversy over the two popes is thought-provoking. Still, the truth revealed that can’t be avoided is found in Pope Benedict’s talk about Ticonio, a Roman theologian of the fourth century. For those willing to search out the truth, it becomes clear that the anti-church is a band of long-hidden traitors who have infiltrated the Church at the highest level.

What’s a pew-sitter to do? Myself, I didn’t know about Ticonio until yesterday, but I began researching the early church several years ago, and I found the pagan influence came in around the fourth century when the Church pulled away from its early roots in Rome. Food for thought.

Perhaps Jeremiah’s words at the beginning of this post might become a good prayer for us today!

Dear Father God,
We are standing by the ways of today’s Church of Rome, and we see a much different picture than the Church began in Jerusalem so long ago. We ask You to reveal to us the ancient paths, where the good way is, that we may walk in it. Jesus tells us My way is easy and My burden light, come unto Me all who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest. We know You have brought salvation to us through Your Beloved Son and His prayer for us is that we may be one with You as He is one. How great are Your mysteries, O God! How beautiful is the power of the Holy Spirit released to us through the death of Your Son, which will enable us to find the ancient paths. We ask in Jesus’ name. Amen.

God bless you always,

Nancy Montgomery

“Stand by the ways and see and ask for the ancient paths,
Where the good way is, and walk in it;
Then you will find a resting place for your souls.
But they said, ‘We will not walk in it.’
