Karol Wojtyla and the secrets of Vatican finances. The Pope is the CEO of the largest bank in the world, the Vatican Bank and the Swiss Banks

Updated August 18, 2012

Pope John Paul II the Great not only proved how immoral he was as a “Holy Father” because for 27 years he had neither heart nor conscience for hundreds of thousands of little boys sodomized by his JP2 Army – John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army named aptly after him, but he also left an amoral Vatican Titanic sinking in moral bankruptcy and a an "Unholy Mess" financial empire that serves more Mammon by using God’s name in vain.  Today the Economist revealed that the Catholic Church has spent $171,600,000,000 in 2010, that's ONE HUNDRED SEVENTY ONE BILLION AND SIX HUNDRED MILLION DOLLARS read news updates below.  As the Vatican Bank was given a passing grade to avoid an economic crisis in austerity struck Italy, read our related article “Obama admin versus Vatican Bank: A compilation. USA government lists Vatican as 'potential money-launderingcenter'” the news of Vatican financial mess can only confirm the Vatican Titanic sinking in moral bankruptcy as it serves money more than Christ and it uses the Eucharist as its magic wand to make 1.2 Catholics “Pray,Pay”Obey” to satisfy the whims of the last Tsars of the Vatican, the Pope and the Opus Dei who are controllers worse than the Pharisees whom Christ condemned as “White Sepulchres” inspite of their repetitive prayers in Latin each day.

In our new blog, Pope Crimes & Vatican Evils...Benedict XVI Ratzinger Crimes Against Humanity at The Hague we prove that the Vatican is the most evil power in the world and that the Pope is being used by multinational corporations and despots of poor countries to hoard their ill-gotten wealth. John Paul II traveled around the world where he courted criminals like Pinochet and used his papal diplomatic immunity to carry and hide these dictators ill-gotten wealth at the Vatican Bank, read our related article Holy Heist!

As long as the Pope is treated like a demi-god as if he is representing God Jesus Christ and as long as Benedict XVI is treated like a ruler of state, there will never be justice for poor peoples and poor countries like El Salvador and no justice to the hundreds of thousands of children who were sexulaly abused by the Priestly Sodomy of Biblical Proportions committed by the JP2 Army John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army commited in the last half and last quarter of the 20th century during the longest pontificate in history of John Paul II which was controlled by the Opus Dei.

But God, if he or she is a true god, has enough and Our Lady of Fatima in her Third Secret of Fatima predicted the total demise of the Vatican because she has enough seeing the crimes and sins of Popes not only against poor peoples by stealing thier moneys and hoarding them in Vatican Swiss Banks but against the least of Christ's brethren, the voiceless and helpless children. Hence the Vatican will be destryed like the wealthy Temple of Solomon and not one pillar will be left standing. And all the wealth of Opus Dei and those despots will also disappear like smoke. We are in the 21st century where the Arab Spring is happenning and there is no mention of religion or Jesus Christ because their freedom has nothing to do with Christianity or the Bible but with basic secular human needs of food, shelther, and clthing which the despots ahve hoarded safely in the Vatican Swiss Banks.

Let's see Libya's example, Mummoar Gadhafi has stolen more than 70 billion dollars, but only 2 billion is found in England, 1.2 billion in the USA, so where are the rest of the 70 billion dollars? In the Vatican Swiss Banks, safe with the Pope.

The rulers of this world have their legal interest in seeing the Vatican as a state and the Pope as the Head of state because they can count on him to always have the diplomatic immunity to hoard their ill-gotten wealth. Hence Benedict XVI is now in Germany and the German Chancellor is protecting him, read our related blog Benedict XVI Ratzinger, God's Rottweiler

Karol Wojtyla and the secrets of Vatican finances

Saint Peter's Basilica

Giacomo Galeazzi

In the controversial history of the Vatican's finances under the pontificate of John Paul II, the page that is less known is that in which Karol Wojtyla replaces the plenipotentiary Marcinkus with the less exposed Donato De Bonis. This happens not, by chance, in 1989. The Cold War is won, so there is no longer an external enemy to justify the ruthlessness of the Lithuanian-American archbishop in the management of the IOR. From the fall of the Berlin Wall onwards, the financial scandals on the other side of the Tiber are no longer the side effects of the Catholic Church’s epoch-making efforts to have Christianity survive in Eastern Europe, but the result of power struggles between the different strings of the Curia that vie for positions of power to the sound of funds raised.

In May 2009, for the first time in the history of the Vatican, thousands of documents on the financial affairs of the Institute for religious works filter through the leonine walls, the impenetrable bank of the Holy See which each year offers its profits for direct management by the Pope. Letters, reports, budgets, minutes, accounting notes, money transfers, letters between the highest authorities from across the Tiber river on how the money is sometimes managed by unscrupulous prelates, bishops and cardinals. Over 4 thousand documents that make up the archive of a privileged witness: Monsignor Renato Dardozzi from Parma, born in 1922, Chancellor of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences and, above all, for twenty years one of the few advisors of the cardinals who succeeded to the Secretary of State, from Agostino Casaroli to Angelo Sodano. Dardozzi wanted that after his death, in 2003, his endless archives be made public.

So, after years of research, the investigative book Vatican spa (Chiarelettere) by Gianluigi Nuzzi, is published containing some passages from the Vatican papers that were crucial for those years: from the bribes of the First Republic to the money for Toto Riina and Bernardo Provenzano (Massimo Ciancimino, son of Vito, former mayor of Palermo, in an interview published in «Vatican spa» points out the existence at the IOR of a system of accounts, opened in the name of his father’s figureheads and from which came funds intended for the two bosses of the Mafia ). From the Ambrosiano to Enimont, from bribes to threats: Dardozzi kept documents and notes on all issues, he stored them in yellow classified folders in the archives. In this way a vast historical memory was formed which now reveals how a sort of "private affairs office" inside the Vatican had worked to straighten or silence the most embarrassing and troubled financial affairs in the years of Karol Wojtyla, just after plots by Archbishop Paul Casimir Marcinkus and the Ambrosiano of Roberto Calvi had been appeased. «In 1989, Marcinkus is now indefensible – explains Nuzzi -. To remove him a reform of the IOR is needed in order to set up a commission of cardinals to supervise the Vatican bank and create the figure of Prelate of the IOR. The choice for the new assignment does not fall on an ecclesiastic outside the Curia, but on Monsignor De Bonis who, for a quarter of a century, had worked at the IOR and was the shadow of Marcinkus. At the same time Angelo Caloia, a laic and a decent person, was appointed President. It is Dardozzi himself who goes to Milan to offer Caloia the presidency». In practice, the post-Marcinkus designation of De Bonis is a Solomonic solution.

«The prelate of the IOR is selected from inside the institute and he was already in charge of illegal operations with Marcinkus- points out Nuzzi-. De Bonis was in Geneva with Marcinkus to sign $230 million in checks to liquidate creditors involved in the collapse of the Ambrosiano. When in 1989 Marcinkus falls into disgrace, De Bonis releases an interview to mark his distance from his boss, but in reality it was he who was the "black box" of the IOR». After the fall of the Berlin Wall, therefore, everything changes so that nothing changes in the «holy business».

«The massive mobilization of resources and energy during the Cold War mortgaged the post-Wall for Karol Wojtyla - underlines Nuzzi -. The choices of John Paul II will be affected. The fall of communism leaves the Pope with a series of debts, because in the crucial struggle for the survival of the Church of the East Wojtyla had moved immense resources, through monetary triangular movements especially with the United States, according to the principle of the "lesser evil". Moreover, the Marcinkus system is not dismantled until after the end of the Cold War, also because it represents a powerful tool for feeding channels towards political and business areas». In short, even after 1989, the critical issues within the IOR are too many to eliminate old methods of management and turn it into a normal bank. «This is a unique “off shore” corridor for politicians around the world who want to keep their money away from legal controls - specifies Nuzzi-. The IOR is like a credit card that ensures privileges to be granted in exchange for political backing, legal provisions and, business support». From the archives of Dardozzi emerges that a flow of money, including cash and bonds, was conveyed into a kind of parallel IOR, an off-shore web of screen deposits made ​​out to charities and non-existent beneficial foundations with cynical names ("Foundation for poor children”, "Fight against Leukemi”), a spider web built in secret for years by Bishop Donato De Bonis, former secretary and successor Marcinkus, appointed prelate of the IOR by Casaroli.

The system is started in 1987 to ensure a fair handover from Marcinkus, now on on his way down, to De Bonis, who had to be negotiate past experiences with the more private needs of the customers of the nineties. And so the hidden IOR continued to prosper for years, escaping even the current president of the IOR, Angelo Caloia, an expression of white finance from the North. There are 17 main accounts on which De Bonis «works for both by formal delegation", says the report sent by Caloia to Wojtyla in August 1992, when the parallel bank begins to emerge, "and by longstanding practice". Between 1989 and 1993 transactions are conducted on these deposits for more than 310 billion lire, about €275.2 million in present value. But the surprise is with cash movements: according to a conservative estimate, these exceeds 110 billion (€97.6 million in present value).

Then there is the intense trading of government securities: in just two years between 135 and 200 billion cct have transited on these reserved accounts. And these are just estimates made ​​by bank management. Even today there is no certainty about how much De Bonis was able to actually move, since he often resorted to off-the-books administration that left no traces. In this manner the parallel IOR not only administered savings but also bribes to third parties in the nineties, checks for Vatican buildings that ended up with Cardinal Rosalio José Castillo Lara, Wojtyla’s plenipotentiary of Economics, money deducted from donations made by the faithful for Masses for the deceased, deposits for 30-40 billion of the nuns who worked in asylums, to the encrypted bank accounts of contractors such as Ferruzzi, secretaries of the popes such as Archbishop Pasquale Macchi, and especially politicians, starting with the then Prime Minister Giulio Andreotti and the first politician convicted in Italy for association with the Mafia, Vito Ciancimino. It is July 15, 1987 when De Bonis duly signs a request and opens the first account of the newborn off-shore system, Number 001-3-14774-C, with a cash deposit of 494,400,000 Lire and a guaranteed high interest rate of 9 per cent per annum. To ward off even the shadow of suspicion Monsignor abuts the deposit to the Cardinal Francis Spellman Foundation. The choice of name is not accidental: it is that of the powerful and feared cardinal, military ordinariate for the United States, who after the war funded the Democrats from the United States with money that may have been stolen from the Jews by the Nazis.

It was Spellman who accredited Marcinkus with the then Pope Paul VI. If an official of the IOR had wanted to look into the files of the Spellman account, he would have discovered that the files contain no trace of the founding document, nor a memorandum or letter on letterhead. He would have concluded that the choice of foundation was a simple but effective expedient. But no officials in the IOR had similar curiosity. The prelate of the Vatican bank was too powerful and protected by the Cardinals for someone to look into his business. So why all the secrecy? When turning around the classic card for depositing signatures of those who can operate on that account, together with De Bonis there is the name of Andreotti. "I do not remember this account" says today Andreotti in an interview by Gianluigi Nuzzi. The persons (almost all prelates and cardinals) who open an account at the IOR are asked to leave their will and testament in an envelope.

The file of the Spellman Foundation account, photocopied by Monsignor Renato Dardozzi and secured in his archives, shows that of the "operator", in fact De Bonis, who with the medium point black marker which he preferred, wrote on lined paper those illuminating instructions: "Whatever is left after my death, in account 001-3-14774-C, is to be given to His Excellency Giulio Andreotti for charitable works and assistance according to his discretion. With grateful thanks in the blessed name of God. Donato De Bonis, Vatican 15.7.87?. It is not only the documents that say that this is one of Andreotti’s secret accounts administered by De Bonis. The former president of the IOR Angelo Caloia was also convinced of this. In a series of confidential letters on the affairs of the prelate sent periodically to the Secretary of State Cardinal Angelo Sodano, and reproduced in the book Vatican spa, Caloia says that he’s certain. In the letter dated June 21, 1994, seven years after the Spellman Foundation account was opened, Caloia takes for granted that "the account of the Cardinal Spellman Foundation which the former prelate administered on behalf of Omission contains figures .... ".

"Omission", as emerges from the convergent documents stored in the archives of Monsignor Dardozzi, was the conventional word used by Caloia and other managers of the IOR to encrypt the name of Andreotti. For De Bonis, however, the code selected was "Rome”. For other account holders, who are still in the shadows, other names of cities were agreed upon, such as "Ancona" or "Siena", to be used in written communications. Only a few had to understand. For example the identity of Ancona is still unknown. When questioned by Panorama, Angelo Caloia preferred not to make statements on this issue. A flood of money flows into the account administered by the prelate of the IOR on behalf of Andreotti. Millions of banknotes, billions in cash. The accounting notes kept in the archives of Dardozzi reconstruct all the movements in detail. The account was credited with cct and cash.

From 1987 to 1992 De Bonis physically introduces more than 26 billion into the Vatican and deposits everything in the Spellman Foundation account. At current value the amount corresponds to € 26.4 million. An amount that must be added to the large number of government bonds deposited and withdrawn, for a total of 42 billion Lire, equal to an additional €32.5 million. All in all, in just a few years 46 billion Lire enter the account. But where does all this money come from and who is it for? In "Vatican spa” there is a list of all the beneficiaries who fall into two categories: religious and laic. The first of which are a multitude. If "charity covers a multitude of sins", as stated in the first letter of St. Peter, it is true that alms and donations are periodically distributed from the Spellman account to hundreds of nuns, mothers superior, monks and abbots, institutions, orders and missions. The list of beneficiaries is endless: Hospital Sisters of Mercy, Adorers of the Eucharist, the Ursulines of Cortina d'Ampezzo, Benedictine Oblates of Priscilla, Carmelites of Arezzo. Charity therefore, but not only. The apparent charitable administration of assets remains marginal.

For the cashier of the DC Severino Citaristi, with multiple sentences for the “Tangentopoli” affair, there appears a check for 60 million. Between 1990 and 1991 400 million are withdrawn from the Spellman account at the IOR for the lawyer Edward Ascari, Andreotti’s lawyer in the proceedings initiated in Palermo for association with the mafia. Then 1.563 billion go to a mysterious Spellman Committee with cash withdrawals or parcels of bank drafts of different denominations (from 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 million). Many beneficiaries. A million dollars to the Brazilian Cardinal Lucas Moreira Neves, who until 2000 was the prefect of the Congregation of Bishops, while other subsidies are addressed to the then Archbishop of New York, Cardinal John O'Connor, the Croatian Cardinal Franjo Kuharic Archdiocese of Zagreb, up to the auxiliary of Skopje Prizren Monsignor Nike Prela "for Albanian-speaking faithful". Also present were diplomats like Marino Fleri, when he was in Jerusalem ($30,000), Ambassador Stefano Falez, who in 1992 receives sums for the "Slovenian Catholic press”, and Honorary Vice-Consul in New York Armando Tancredi. Money is removed from the fund also for conferences, like the one held in New York in April 1991 for studies on Cicero.

From the " President Andreotti Memorandum" attached to the transfer instructions and from the accounts of the IOR it can be deduced that the account paid out $100,000 for 182 guest rooms at the Plaza and the Sheraton hotel, 225 million for airline tickets, guided tours and transfers. Savings books to the bearer were also deposited with work liquidation and personal savings. There is no reference to politics. A deposit of $40 million contains instructions on Palazzo Montecitorio letterhead, “transfer into Spellman”. On another sheet there is a note "Sen. Lavezzari" in conjunction with the deposit of checks for 590 million lire. Carlo Lavezzari, steel entrepreneur in Lombardy, was a personal friend of Andreotti. Former Democrat Senator, he had his office in Rome on the same floor of the former Prime Minister, in Piazza San Lorenzo in Lucina. Difficult, however, to identify the beneficiaries of the amounts frenetically withdrawn in cash almost every day. The briefcases full of money carried by De Bonis were a habit for employees of the IOR. Each week the monsignor delivered thousands of wads of 100 thousand lire banknotes, with deposits of up to half a billion in cash at a time. He did not disdain cashier checks (from 4 to 500 million), nor foreign transfers, especially from Switzerland. The reports are in Geneva with the Union Bancaire Privée, in Lugano with the Bank of Credit and Commerce SA and Banque Indosuez, while for transactions with the Bank of Lugano account 101-7-13907 opened by the IOR in that Swiss institute for convenience. The turning point of 1992. From the archive of Dardozzi, as told in the book Vatican spa, it emerges that Caloia, who arrived in 1989, begins to suspect the existence of this parallel structure only in the spring of 1992.

He sets up a secret committee and arranges for controls with alarming results which he sends to the special secretary to Pope John Paul II , the most faithful Don Stanislaw Dziwisz, today archbishop of Krakow, for the Pope’s action. But nothing happens. The breakthrough will come only in October 1993 with the explosion of the Enimont issue, a maxi bribe paid to the leader of the First Republic to break the Italian chemistry merger between Eni and Montedison. The “Mani Pulite” pool will knock at the bronze door, obtaining only partial and misleading responses.

Dardozzi writes to the lawyer Franzo Grande Stevens, legal advisor of the IOR: "Do not tempt" the judges who want to shed light on the money that passed through the Vatican for politicians. In this manner, half of the cct of the parallel IOR will remain well outside the range of investigators. Of course without hesitation because, as Marcinkus used to repeat, you do not administer the Church with Hail Marys.

Paul Marcinku’s trajectory from the land of Al Capone to the Vatican Bank scandal

Paul Marcinkus


Paul Casimir Marcinkus, nicknamed “Chink,” never looked the part of the pious priest. Archbishop and president of the Vatican Bank, the Italian magistracy tried in vain to put him behind bars for the Banco Ambrosiano crash. The archbishop at the center of one of the most clamorous Vatican scandals died in February 2006 in Arizona, where he had retired as a curate.

Born in 1922 to a family of Lithuanian immigrants in Cicero, the suburb of Chicago noted for producing Al Capone, Paul Casimir had five siblings, and his father earned a living washing office building windows. His calling arose quickly enough - at thirteen years of age, he enrolled in a Diocesan school, and at eighteen transferred to the major seminary of St. Mary of the Lake in Mundelein, Illinois, where he studied philosophy and theology. In ‘47 he was ordained and sent to a neighborhood parish, serving young families on the southwest side of Chicago. Just one year later, Marcinkus was transferred to the Diocesan tribunal, and two years later to Rome to study canon law. In 1952, while in London for research, he received a letter from the Vatican inviting him to spend two months at the English branch of the Secretary of State. In fact, the professors from Gregorian University had brought Paul’s name up to Pius XII’s factotum, Monsignor Giovanni Battista Montini, the future Paul VI. That trial period became definitive - little by little, Marcinkus became the Roman point of reference for all Americans.

During the Second Vatican Council, he worked to secure the best prices on transoceanic flights for bishops and arranged their stays in Roman hotels In ‘63 he built Villa Stritch (dedicated to a cardinal in Chicago), a million-dollar complex designed to host American prelates. He became its first rector.

His true career coincides with the Pope’s first apostolic travels. In 1964 Paul VI, whom Marcinkus had helped to learn English, asked him to arrange the trip to India for the Eucharistic Congress. His organizing abilities were shown to be formidable, so much so that from then on he organized all of the pontiff’s travels - from New York to Fatima, from Uganda to Chile. Everyone began to call him “the Pope’s Faithful Servant,” and his work as bodyguard to Paul VI earned him the nickname “Gorilla” - a fitting one, given the American prelate’s hulking stature. In 1969 the Pope consecrated him bishop and sent him to run the Vatican Bank, despite the fact that Marcinkus had no knowledge of banks or finance. A few years later, in 1972, his name was brought up in relation to the scandal over forged securities the Vatican had acquired from the mafia. The FBI conducted an investigation into the Vatican connection. The agents entered the sacred rooms and interrogated the closest colleagues of the then-Substitute Secretary of State, Monsignor Giovanni Benelli, who from then on would become an enemy of Marcinkus.

The prelate from Cicero was cleared of the accusation, but the event marks the start of his bad reputation. These are the years when, because of his powerful supporters, Michele Sindona has easy access to the Vatican, as does his protégé, Roberto Calvi, oft-mentioned president of Banco Ambrosiano, who quickly enters into business with the Vatican Bank under Marcinkus. With the growth of his power, “Chink” also sees an increasing number of enemies. For example, Patriarch of Venice Albino Luciani was deeply indignant about the rather too-detached ways of the Vatican Bank president. In the mid-seventies, he had some disagreements with Marcinkus related to Banco San Marco and the sale of the Catholic Bank of Veneto to Banco Ambrosiano. It is said that he came to Rome to demand an explanation for the action taken without the knowledge of the Venetian bishops, and was unceremoniously shown the door by “Chink”. Monsignor Marcinkus would deny the event.

In fact, according to many reputable sources, Pope Luciani made it known immediately after his election that he intended to remove the American prelate from management of the Vatican Bank “because a bishop should not be running a bank.” Certain unscrupulous transactions at Ambrosiano were well-known even before the election of Karol Wojtyla. But John Paul II took a liking to Marcinkus, promoting him to Archbishop (1981) and naming him Pro-President of the Pontifical Commission for the Vatican City State. In addition to finance, the American prelate busied himself with the trivialities of life in the smallest state in the world. Both blue-collar workers and professionals still remember him with great affection - he would climb scaffolding to bring a bricklayer something to drink, sensitive to their needs, ready to help anybody in trouble.

The Economist Estimates the Catholic Church Spent $171,600,000,000 in 2010

Friendly Atheist
[The Economist]
August 17, 2012 By Hemant Mehta

The Economist has attempted to paint a picture of what the Catholic Church’s finances look like, especially in light of the sexual abuse scandals. I’ll admit it. I may have salivated a bit at this paragraph:
By studying court documents in bankruptcy cases, examining public records, requesting documents from local, state and federal governments, as well as talking to priests and bishops confidentially, The Economist has sought to quantify the damage.

They estimate that the church spends about $171,600,000,000 a year.

Not a typo.

The Economist estimates that annual spending by the church and entities owned by the church was around $170 billion in 2010 (the church does not release such figures). We think 57% of this goes on health-care networks, followed by 28% on colleges, with parish and diocesan day-to-day operations accounting for just 6% and national charitable activities just 2.7% (see chart). In total, Catholic institutions employ over 1m people, reckons Fred Gluck, a former McKinsey managing partner and co-founder of the National Leadership Roundtable on Church Management, a lay organisation seeking to improve the way the church is run. For purposes of secular comparison, in 2010 General Electric’s revenue was $150 billion and Walmart employed roughly 2m people.
Wow. You knew the Church had money… but that much?!
Where does it all come from? Offering plates, donations, tuition money, Medicare/Medicaid payments, and other investments.
I thought that the sexual abuse scandal payouts would at least put a dent in their budget. Turns out it’s only a small fraction of it and most of the payments are made by local dioceses and not the Vatican:
The molestation and rape of children by priests in America has resulted in more than $3.3 billion of settlements over the past 15 years, $1.3 billion of that in California. The total is likely to increase as more states follow California and Delaware in relaxing the statute of limitations on these crimes, most of which were reported long after they happened. For an organisation with revenues of $170 billion that might seem manageable. But settlements are made by individual dioceses and religious orders, whose pockets are less deep than those of the church as a whole.
One of the consequences of the dioceses paying these costs is that some of them have gone out of business and more will likely follow:
Over the past eight years, a combination of these stresses has driven eight dioceses (including San Diego, Tucson and Milwaukee) to declare bankruptcy, as well as the American arm of the Irish Christian Brothers and a regional branch of the Jesuits. More of America’s 196 dioceses could be forced to do the same. Efforts are under way in the legislatures of Arizona, Illinois, New York, Florida, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Colorado, Pennsylvania, Ohio and California (again) to extend statutes of limitations, according to Jeff Anderson, a lawyer who represents many victims of abuse. If any of these efforts succeeds, the expectation among lawyers like Mr Anderson is that some of the affected dioceses would seek Chapter 11 protection while they attempt to settle the cases. (Troubled dioceses generally settle suits just before the bishop is due in court.) The diocese of Honolulu could be the next to go bankrupt. In May it was hit by a pair of new lawsuits after the extension of Hawaii’s statute of limitations for victims of abuse.
The article also notes that there isn’t a long line of future priests, donations are dropping, and pensions are underfunded. All of that means the future doesn’t look very good for the Church.
There’s only one thing left to do:

"An unholy mess"

That's what an in-depth, investigative piece in the Economist called the state of finances in the Catholic Church in America: an unholy mess.

It's hard to decide what is most horrifying in this report of financial mismanagement, which looks at data made public through bankruptcy proceedings in several dioceses:

•Some dioceses have raided priests' pension funds to pay for sexual abuse damages and other costs. Under Cardinal Bernard Law, the archdiocese of Boston contributed nothing to its clergy retirement fund between 1986 and 2002, despite receiving an estimated $70 million to $90 million in Easter and Christmas offerings that many parishioners believed would benefit retired priests.

•The same is true for parish savings. A parish in Wilmington, Del., sent $1 million to be deposited in what it thought was a separate account, but was really a pooled, general cash account for the diocese. The parish lost the money when the diocese struck a sexual-abuse settlement.

•Cardinal Dolan and other New York bishops are spending an estimated $100,000 a year to well over $1 million, sources say, on lobbying the state assembly to prevent an extension of the statute of limitations on sexual abuse, which would result in more lawsuits and more dioceses declaring bankruptcy.

The 9/11 Decade and the JP2 Millstone 9th anniversary of Paris Arrow's vision of the death of John Paul II at the World Youth Day

Updated October 3, 2011 Deliver Us from Evil Trailer. The left foot Achilles Heel of John Paul II, Cardinal Bernard Law, is featured in this movie that proves John Paul II knew about the phenomenon of his JP2 Army John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army

Updated September 15, 2011, feast of Our Lady of the Seven Sorrows

We propose a monument for the victims of pedophile priests in Boston where it all erupted in 2002 and where Cardinal Bernard Law, the left foot Achilles Heel of John Paul II, publicly confessed that he transferred 80 pedophiles priests from one parist to another. Cardinal Bernard Law is the biggest proof that John Paul II knew of the phenomenon of pedophile priests that haunted him until his death in 2005, read our related article John Paul smelled Devil`s Bowels as roses for 27 years as he deified Father Marcial Maciel and deified Cardinal Bernard Law . Imagine how many hundreds 80 pedophile priests must have had from one parish to another, read our related article about how 20 pedophile priests had hundreds of victims in Ireland and Canada

9/11 was the biggest attack against Americans in American soil since the attack in Pearl Harbour in 1941. The 9/11 attack had 3,000 victims; Pearl Harbour had also 3,000 victims. Now why did 3,000 victims caused so much changes among politicians and Americans and the world at large but the confirmed 15,736 American children victims of the JP2 Army, the John Paul II Pedophiles Rapists-Priests Army does not change a thing on how Catholics see John Paul II, but in fact they are deifying him as the fastest fast-track saint in history? These 15,736 American victims seems to be fading in memory because unlike the 9/11 victims, their names are not engraved in stone but in some archives that will gather dust in history and the fast sainthood of John Paul II will totally obliterate them in history, read our exclusive blog JP2 Army, John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army

9/11 changed America and the world forever. The way Americans and people see each other changed forever. The way we travel and the security in airports changed forever. The Homeland Security department was created for our safety in the USA. As a consequence of 9/11, President George W. Bush started the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and spent the biggest ever in the American economy costing not only trillions of dollars but also thousands of lives of young men who also left countless widows and young babies and children. Where a picture speaks a thousand words, the Danish cartoonist drew cartoons depicting Mohammed and Muslims worldwide protested and set a bounty for the head of the Danish cartoonist. The 9/11 former site of the World Trade Center now holds a permanent memorial and museum for the 3,000 victims who were killed; their names are carved forever in a long wall. The Freedom Tower is almost finished. 9/11 will never be forgotten and will always be commemorated every year on its anniversary. The commemoration of 9/11 will always be attended by Presidents and dignitaries from around the world. 9/11 is the new epic American holocaust comparable to the Jewish Holocaust in its ceremonies. We need likewise an epic commemoration of the most heinous crimes against Catholic children worldwide covered-up by both Cardinal Josef Ratzinger and John Paul II for over a quarter of a century, read our blog Benedict XVI Ratzinger: God's Rottweiler and our related article on the sorcery of the Eucharist

Let us not forget that a decade after 9/11, there is suddenly the Arab Spring as the entire region of the Arab countries in the Middle East and Africa are bringing down all their despots and Kings – as peacefully as they can – without the help of the Americans and the Vatican and the Bible or the name of Jesus Christ! Read our related article Holy Heist! John Paul II WYD had no role with Arab youths who liberated Egypt from Mubarak who stole then deposited billions into Vatican Swiss Banks So think of all the thousands of victims 80 pedophile priests in Boston had...or the thousands of victims 600 pedophile priests in Los Angeles whom the former Cardinal Mahony covered-up.

10 months after 9/11, Paris Arrow (pen name to protect author from the Vatican Mafia) attended the last World Youth Day of John Paul II in Toronto Canada. There she saw this vision of St. Michael tying the most gigantic millstone to John Paul II’s neck, dragged him until his neck broke and then cast him into a raging sea of fire...while the young Catholic WYD chanted "JP2, we love you". Anyone who cannot understand this can watch the other ending of the movie SALT with Angelina Jolie (which was not shown in the movie theatre but is in the DVD now available. When Jolie caught the bad guy who maltreated her as a child and other soviet little boys and girls, she is dressed completely in black (like a Muslim woman or a nun)with a long black veil and she stands by the edge of the sea. The bad guy is all tied up connected to a rectangular rock and Jolie push him to the sea.

This was Paris Arrow’s vision of John Paul II after his last speech at the WYD in 2002. It is also the 9th anniversary of that vision and so many developments have happened at the Vatican as exposed in our related articles below. But the most important revelation coming to light is the Achilles Heel of John Paul II, Fr. Marcial Maciel, the serial pedophile priest who sodomized even his own biological son.

The vision of Parris Arrow of the John Paul II Millstone

The vision of Paris Arrow happened on July 28, 2002 during the last WYD speech of John Paul II as St. Michael the Archangel bent over and whispered in John Paul II's ear, "Repent, and tell your JP2 Army John Paul II Priest Pedophiles Rapists-Army to stop NOW, do it in front of these young people from around the world." John Paul II replied, "Never, I shall never mar my papacy, I shall be called the Greatest Pope on earth, infallible and impeccable." St. Michael said, "You have a few months left to live, your time is running out, I have given you all the tell these world youth the truth of what you have covered-up for over a quarter of a century."

John Paul II replied to St. Michael, “I am John Paul II the Great and listen to these youth chant 'John Paul 2, we love you' and that is how they will remember me, and not for some little boys who can barely speak about their sodomy experiences." St. Michael said: "You have hidden and enabled thousands of pedophile priests but the truth shall come out and set free all these children you have oppressed . Since you have a callous heart and refuse to repent, I now tie this giant millstone to your neck and cast you to the sea for as Jesus said, “Temptations, stumbling blocks, enticements are surely to come, but whoever causes one of these little ones to sin, it would be better that a giant millstone would be tied around their neck and they would be thrown into the heart of the sea.” Mark 9:42-50, Luke 7:1-4, Matthew 18:6-10. You John Paul II the Great have caused countless thousands of children to sin with your thousands of pedophile priests for over a quarter of a century during your longest reigning papacy...

St. Michael tied a thick rope around John Paul II's neck that was connected to the giant millstone measuring 8 feet by 3 feet thick... He then pulled the giant millstone with a rope tied on the other end and it glided easily on the ground and John Paul II fell to the ground from his papal throne and chair. He kept grumbling, ‘I am John Paul II the Great! I am John Paul II the Great!’ as he was pulled to the ground and his white robe became splattered with dark mud. He became very dark and covered with his own blood as his flesh was rubbed and cut by the spiky ground. Then his neck broke as he approached a sharp cliff with a raging sea of roaring fire below. St. Michael pushed the giant millstone and John Paul II followed it with his broken neck and limp body into a raging sea of roaring fire and St. Michael said: Jesus said ‘Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy’ but you John Paul II as pope for the longest time in history did not show any mercy to any of these most helpless little children raped by the Priestly Sodomy of Biblical Proportions of your John Paul II Pedophiles Rapists-Priests Army so now go ‘in that place where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth’ where you belong with the Devil, the father of darkness as you yourself has been the “Holy Father of darkness” of this Age of Pedophiles Rapists-Priests of Biblical Proportions worse than the time of Sodom and Gomorrah...the blood and the 'murder of the souls' of these countless boys and girls will forever be in your hand like the Mark of Cain on your forhead...Go join the Devil, you Holy Father of lies, murder and theft of the Vatican Bank where corrupt heads of state hide their monies by starving and killing their people..."

Title: Deliver Us from Evil

Description: Moving from one parish to another in Northern California during the 1970s, Father Oliver O'Grady quickly won each congregation's trust and respect...

Film Synopsis:

Deliver Us From Evil follows Father O’Grady through the years as a priest in Northern California, where he committed his atrocious crimes. After being convicted of his charges and serving seven years in a California State Penitentiary, Father O’Grady was deported back to his native land of Ireland.

This is where Amy Berg, an American film maker interviewed him in 2005. The documentary uses trial documents, videotaped depositions, and interviews with theologians, psychologists, activists and lawyers.

All of whom suggest that church officials were aware of the atrocities O’Grady committed, but that they actively tried to conceal them as well.

The Title of the movie refers to a line in the ‘Lord Prayer’ also known as the ‘Our Father’ and recieved many mixed movie reviews to the claims that are made.

The Policy Myth versus 'Accountability with Teeth'

National Catholic Reporter

by John L Allen Jr on Sep. 09, 2011 All Things Catholic

Mythology is not only loads of fun, but often highly profitable. For proof, look no further than this: Dan Brown has written a book about the Vatican, which was pure fantasy; I’ve also written a book about the Vatican, which, if I do say so myself, has a fairly decent grasp of the basic realities. Care to guess which one sold better?

Yet mythology is also dangerous, never more so than when it fosters misleading diagnoses of serious problems. We’ve seen two good examples recently vis-à-vis the Vatican, both involving the sexual abuse crisis.

The bit of mythology in play, which we might call the “Policy Myth”, is the following: When Rome says “jump,” everyone in the Catholic Church responds, “how high?” If there’s a problem in the church, therefore, it must be due to some Vatican policy (either explicit or secret); to resolve the problem, the trick is to get the Vatican to issue new marching orders.

As the Italians would say, Magari! If only it were as simple as flipping a switch in Rome, and all would be well. Catholicism, however, is a remarkably decentralized system with regard to everything other than doctrine, so the correlation between Roman instructions and application on the ground is rarely exact. Putting the focus on policy obscures what is often the far more decisive question of accountability for how it’s implemented.

The two instances where the Policy Myth has cropped up most recently involve a lawsuit in Oregon, and a highly public standoff between the Vatican and the Irish government.

The Oregon case

In late August, the Vatican released what it said were all the documents in its possession related to the case of Fr. Andrew Ronan, a onetime Servite priest born in Armagh, Ireland, who was laicized in 1966, after serving both in Ireland and America, and who died in 1992. In 2002, an American who says that Ronan abused him in 1965 filed suit in federal district court in Oregon, naming the Vatican as a defendant.

The heart of the suit, as conceived by attorney Jeffrey Anderson, is that every priest in the Catholic Church is a Vatican employee. The case has already made legal history, in that it’s the first instance in which an American judge has approved limited requests for discovery, meaning requests for documents and other information, despite the Vatican’s status as a sovereign entity under international law.

For sure, the documents released last month don’t cast church officials in an especially flattering light. Servite leaders in Ireland became aware of Ronan’s sexual misconduct with seminarians in 1959, triggering a transfer to the United States but no other measures that might have kept further victims out of harm’s way. In 1966, officials were still hoping that Ronan could leave the priesthood, at his own request, “quietly and without any open scandal.”

What the documents also show, however, is that prior to 1966, when a petition for laicization reached Rome (and was swiftly granted), the Vatican had heard of Andrew Ronan exactly once: In 1953, when the Servites requested a routine exemption from church law to allow him to serve as a novice master despite being under the established age. There’s no indication the Vatican was even aware of Ronan’s 1959 transfer from Ireland to America, or of confidential correspondence among Servite officials about Ronan’s propensity for what one 1963 letter described as “this perversion.”

From the record, it seems that failure to deal more aggressively with Ronan was not really a breakdown in policy so much as prudential judgment. Indeed, when Ronan’s name was floated for a seminary assignment in 1963, a Servite provincial wrote the order’s top official to insist that giving Ronan the job would be “contrary to all precepts of the church.”

What this means in terms of the Vatican’s legal exposure, I’m not competent to say. Analytically, however, the problem with thinking that the Ronan case is primarily about Vatican policy is that it takes everyone else involved off the hook. It also suggests the abuse could have been prevented if only the Vatican had a different set of policies, which, as we will see below, isn’t necessarily so.

The Row between Ireland and the Vatican

Last Saturday, the Vatican released an unusually detailed 11,000-word statement in response to criticism by Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny, which came in the wake of a critical government report on the rural Cloyne diocese. It found that abuse allegations were mishandled in Cloyne as recently as 2009, despite pledges of “zero tolerance” from the bishops.

Kenny laid much of the responsibility at the Vatican’s doorstep, saying on July 20 that the report illustrates “the dysfunction, disconnection, elitism … the narcissism that dominates the culture of the Vatican to this day.”

Central both to Kenny’s criticism and the Vatican reply is a 1997 letter from the papal nuncio, or ambassador, to the Irish bishops, relaying comments from the Congregation for Clergy in Rome. The letter advised the Irish bishops that some elements of a draft set of sex abuse guidelines the bishops had developed in 1996, including support for “mandatory reporter” policies on child abuse, could conflict with canon law.

That letter has been repeatedly cited as affording cover to church officials who swept abuse cases under the rug. The Vatican, however, said the letter was not intended to prevent the bishops from reporting child abuse to the police, but to make sure that possible conflicts with church law would not allow abusers to evade ecclesial punishment on a technicality.

Whatever gloss one adopts, here’s the key point: The breakdowns in Cloyne continued well after the Vatican had adopted tough new policies on abuse, including an expectation of cooperation with police and prosecutors. The basic failure in Cloyne was not a lack of policy from Rome, therefore, but rather the stubborn unwillingness of a bishop and the coterie around him to implement it.

The most astute observation came from Dublin’s outspoken Archbishop Diarmuid Martin –who, to be clear, is nobody’s idea of a lapdog for Rome or an apologist for the church’s record on the abuse crisis. With reference to the leadership in Cloyne under former Bishop John Magee, Martin dismissed the idea that a “smoking gun” in the Vatican could explain their choices.

“The fact is that these same people … continued to reject the clear norms approved by Pope Benedict when they were published,” Martin said. “They were people who regarded only their own views and would take no note of study documents, of framework documents or even of approved papal norms.”

(Magee, by the way, served as a private secretary to three popes -- Paul VI, John Paul I, and John Paul II. Perhaps that helps explain why he and the people around him felt free to follow their own lead, flouting not only the policies of the Irish bishops but also the new dispensation from Rome.)

Policy and Accountability

Here we arrive at the nub of what makes the Policy Myth dangerous. The Vatican can issue all the edicts and amendments to canon law it wants, but that’s no guarantee, and never has been, that they’ll be faithfully implemented.

Roma locuta est, causa finita est may be a terrific legal epigram, but it only goes so far in capturing real-world Catholic practice.

Formal policy, of course, is critically important. New norms adopted by the Vatican since 2001 represent a step forward, as do the policies adopted by various bishops’ conferences. Yet as Martin put it, policies remain words on paper without an “on-going process of independent monitoring and reviewing of day-to-day practice.”

Bottom line: Both the Ronan case and the dispute between Ireland and the Vatican do indeed illustrate a serious problem in the church, but it’s not a problem of policy. It’s a problem of oversight and accountability. If the rule of astute statecraft is “trust but verify,” one would have to say that outside the strictly doctrinal realm, Catholicism is long on trust but sometimes woefully short on verification.

Smart bishops today get this. They know that when a church official anywhere mishandles important matters, such as charges of abuse, it damages their collective credibility – especially in a 24/7 global media environment, in which a scandal in an obscure place like Cloyne, with a total Catholic population the size of some American parishes, can become a worldwide cause célèbre.

That’s why Archbishop Timothy Dolan of New York, president of the U.S. bishops’ conference, says in a forthcoming book-length interview with me that he would welcome new systems of “accountability with teeth” for bishops and other officials. Such checks and balances wouldn’t inhibit the teaching authority of bishops, he says, but enhance it, by giving people more confidence in the system.

In an interview just before his appointment to Philadelphia, Archbishop Charles Chaput struck a similar note: “We should have accountability for our actions in the church, and bishops should be as accountable as priests and laity,” he said. “I’m sympathetic to the idea that there should be real consequences, with teeth, to acting contrary to the law of the land, the discipline of the church, or the moral law of God.”

Forces interested in genuine reform would do well to press such leaders to put their money where their mouth is, fleshing out what “accountability with teeth” would look like – especially in a church with more than 5,000 bishops, as well as scores of religious communities and other jurisdictions, but just one pope. That effort, and not a fruitless quest for some magic bullet in Vatican policy, is where the action is.

American lawyers and Irish politicians alike, take note.

Judge Upholds Key Elements In Maciel Sex Abuse Case

September 08, 2011

The Hartford Courant

The suit is being pressed by Jose Raul Gonzalez Lara, a Mexican who claims that he is the illegitimate son of his abuser, the Rev. Marcial Maciel Degollado.

In one of the odder twists in the still-emerging story of Maciel, Gonzalez claims that he was one of two children Maciel fathered with a woman in Mexico. Gonzalez said that Maciel was known to his family in Mexico as Raul Rivas and claimed to be a CIA agent and oil executive.

Gonzalez has said he did not learn that his father was a priest until 1997, when he was about 17. He said his abuse by Maciel began when he was 7 and continued for nine years. The victim was 30 when he filed the suit in June 2010. Maciel died in 2008.

In the legal decision last week, Superior Court Judge Grant Miller rejected arguments by the Legionaries and its affiliated organizations to dismiss the suit in its entirety.

Miller dismissed counts in the suit that claimed that the Legionaries knew or should have known of Maciel's abuse. But the judge let stand counts in which Gonzalez claims that negligence by the order contributed to his abuse by Maciel.

New Haven lawyer Joel Faxon, who represents Gonzalez, said that he will issue subpoenas for senior Vatican officials in an effort to support the negligence case.

The suit claims that Maciel's sexual abuse of children was widely known in the church for decades, beginning in the 1940s and '50s, but was not stopped.

In 1976 alone, according to the suit, the Legionaries' national director accused Maciel by letter of abusing 20 seminarians, and a U.S. bishop reported Maciel to the Vatican and Pope Paul VI, but no action was taken. Another complaint was made to the Vatican two years later, according to the suit, but there was no response.

Craig Raabe, the lawyer representing the Legionaries, had no immediate response Wednesday to the decision in court. Previously, the Legionaries have declined to discuss the suit.

The Legionaries operate the Legion of Christ College in Cheshireand the Legion of Christ in Hamden.

Suit against Legion of Christ to proceed in Conn.

San Francisco Chronicle

By MICHAEL MELIA, Associated Press
Wednesday, September 7, 2011

.(09-07) 16:04 PDT Hartford, Conn. (AP) --

A lawsuit filed by a man who claims he was molested for years by the founder of a once-powerful religious order will go forward in Connecticut, where a judge refused in a ruling released Wednesday to dismiss negligence claims against the Legionaries of Christ.

The lawsuit by Jose Raul Gonzalez of Mexico claims the clergyman, the late Rev. Marcial Maciel, was also his father. He argues that the Legion failed to protect him from a man who was a known pedophile and accuses its officials of covering up decades of sexual abuse by Maciel and other priests.

Hartford Superior Court Judge Grant Miller dismissed some parts of the lawsuit but allowed others alleging negligent supervision to proceed. In the Aug. 30 ruling, Miller said the allegations raised by Gonzalez were enough to suggest the Legion could have foreseen the harm he suffered.

An attorney for the plaintiff, Joel Faxon of New Haven, said the ruling is important because it will allow Gonzalez's side to press for more evidence.

"It allows the floodgates to open up in terms of access to documents of the Legionaries of Christ and our ability to use international treaties to subpoena people within the Vatican, including very high-ranking officials," Faxon said.

A U.S. spokesman for the Legion, Jim Fair, said the organization was also pleased with the ruling. Fair said he did not want to comment further, however, while the case is still pending. He said the order used to have its U.S. headquarters in Connecticut but the main American offices are now in New York and Atlanta.

Maciel, who died in 2008 at age 87, enjoyed favor at the Vatican under Pope John Paul II, who admired the order's conservative outlook and its success in fundraising and recruiting seminarians at a time when the ranks of priests were dwindling.

But a Vatican investigation of the Legion concluded last year that Maciel had committed grave and "objectively immoral actions" that constituted true crimes in some cases and showed a "life devoid of scruples and authentic religious meaning."

Maciel created a "system of power" built on silence, deceit and obedience that enabled him to lead a double life that allowed the abuse to go unchecked and unquestioned, the Vatican said.

In the lawsuit filed in June 2010, Gonzalez said the Legion knew or should have known about allegations dating to the 1940s that Maciel abused children and seminarians. The defendants asked the judge to throw out much of the lawsuit, saying there was no evidence the alleged abuse of the plaintiff was within the scope of Maciel's authority.

Gonzalez's mother, Blanca Lara Gutierrez, has said Maciel led a double life, had two children with her, adopted another, then sexually abused two of the three.

Lara Gutierrez said she was 19 when she met the priest, then 56, who passed himself off as "Jose Rivas," an employee of an international oil company, a private investigator and a CIA agent. She said she didn't discover his real identity until 1997, through a magazine article.
