Pray for the Pope

"For even the man of peace, in whom I trusted, who ate my bread, hath greatly supplanted me. "


Please pray for the Pope. His butler, a man whom he obviously sees every day, who handles his meals, and runs his household has betrayed him. He must feel it very keenly.

What happened, Dymphna?

Dymphna said...

The butler was stealing documents and selling(?) them to the media. That's a terrible betrayal.

Satan is hard at work trying to oust our Holy Father from the chair of St. Peter.

May Our Lady protect us, and may St. Michael chase the devil straight back to his fiery depths of hell.

Dymphna, I've read several articles on this, and according to one posted on Angelqueen.Org, the butler is merely a scapegoat for the real offenders.

@Steve - wouldn't surprise me in the least...

Dymphna said...

Perhaps, Steve. Something really slimy is going on.

Let us pray for our Holy Father indeed, He is quite alone and surrounded by wolves...As much good as Bl JPII did, he was not exactly worlds greatest judge of character.

Would a Butler really count as the kind of friend the Bible word refers to?

"The butler was stealing documents and selling(?) them to the media. That's a terrible betrayal."

Were any individuals thrown to the wolves, or was it just things "Pope Benedict XVI" wanted not to be discussed in public?

In cases with blackmail, the secret leaking out is actually the end of blackmail.

- "If you don't pay me ... I will tell the media you shelter a homosexual offender"
- "Sorry, but the Pope's Butler did so already".

Unless the disclosure led to a man getting in prison whom his ecclesiastical friends wanted to keep out of it?
