Wikileaks re pope’s election

Oh this liberal, pro-abortion American government. What a scourge it is to the world. We are fortunate that the electors in the College of Cardinals are not prone to being bribed or coerced by American money and power, just as what they did in Kenya to amend the constitution to strike off pro-life provisions.

God still protects His body on earth, the Church, against the evil forces that seek to destroy her. Cardinal Ratzinger, now Benedict XVI, is actually the best man to be pope at this time when the anti-life, anti-family, homosexualist forces are rampaging throughout the world, and when dissident bishops and theologians have become the enemy within. The Catholic Church is practically the only significant institution standing in the way of the onslaught of Satan.

So when the American hordes of Satan got over their shock, they set about their continuing work to discredit and weaken the Catholic Church, particularly targeting the head, the pope. We continue to be confident in Jesus’ words to Peter: “And so I say to you, you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it.” (Mt 16:18).

Let us continue to constantly pray for the Holy Father, as we praise and thank God for giving him to us.

Leaked Wikileaks doc: U.S gvmt ‘shocked’ by Pope Benedict’s election, expected liberal

ROME, Italy, November 30, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – American diplomats in Rome were caught off guard by Pope Benedict XVI’s election in 2005, and predicted instead that a more liberal Cardinal would take the vote, according to one of the documents included in this week’s massive leak of U.S. intelligence files by the Wikileaks website.

The document from April 19, 2005, obtained by the Italian newspaper La Stampa this week, says the U.S. Embassy to the Holy See was “shocked” and “speechless” at Pope Benedict’s election.

In an earlier communiqué classified as “sensitive,” the embassy listed Cardinal Gottfried Daneels, the now-retired Archbishop of Brussels, as one of the top candidates, as well as Cardinal Dionigi Tettamanzi, Archbishop of Milan.

Cardinal Daneels is renowned in Europe as a dissenter from Catholic teaching, particularly on issues of sexual morality such as contraception and homosexuality.

The embassy believed the successful candidate would have pastoral experience and be versed in the new media, says U.K.‘s The Catholic Herald.  They suspected he would not be too old or too young, and would speak Italian but perhaps not hail from Italy.

While they predicted then-Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger would gain a number of votes, the diplomats expected he would instead remain a “powerful cardinal” and a “guardian of theological orthodoxy.”

“For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” (Phil 1:21)
