Cardinal Danneels Admits: “Mafia Club” Opposed to Benedict XVI Plotted Pope Francis Election

Cardinal DanneelsThe election Pope Francis was the fruit of secret meetings that radically liberal cardinals and bishops, organized by Carlo Maria Martini, held for years at St. Gall in Switzerland.  This is what is claimed by Jürgen Mettepenningen and Karim  Shelkens, the authors of a just published biography of the Belgian Cardinal Godfried Danneels.

The book reveals that the Cardinal was a regular member of a secret pressure group of Churchmen that opposed Pope Benedict XVI. Danneels said that what was officially but discreetly labeled “the Sankt-Gallen group” was referred to by its members as “the Mafia”. Its self-imposed aim was to achieve a drastic reform of the Church, to make it “much more modern”, and for Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio to head it.

The group met every year since 1996, and together they organized the secret “resistance” against Cardinal Ratzinger, who at that time was the right-hand man of John Paul II.  Their goal at the time was to elect a “reformer” pope to eventually replace John Paul II, in view of his nearing death, and to prevent at all costs the election of Cardinal Ratzinger as Pope. The question that was put more and more emphatically by the group was: “What after John Paul II? How can we avoid Ratzinger as Pope?’”

When Pope John Paul II died in 2005, the group already pushed the present Pope to the fore, although in the end, Cardinal Ratzinger still got elected despite their efforts. Eight years later, in 2013, they finally got what they wanted, with Pope Francis re-shaping the Church according to their original vision.

The group counts amongst its members the most radically liberal bishops and cardinals of the Church, such as Cardinal Walter Kasper, Cardinal Karl Lehmann from Germany, Cardinal Achille Silvestrini from Italy, Dutch Cardinal Adriann Van Luyn, Cardinal Basil Hume from England, and the late Jesuit Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini.

Said Schelkens in an interview this week: “The election of Cardinal Bergoglio was prepared in Sankt-Gallen, without doubt. And the main lines of the program the Pope is carrying out are those that Danneels and Co were starting to discuss more than ten years ago.”

In Violation of Papal Law

Saint John Paul II’s Apostolic Constitution Universi Domini Gregis clearly forbids under pain of automatic excommunication (i.e. immediately imposed, without necessity of declaration) the canvassing for votes:

Let the Cardinal electors, moreover, abstain from all pacts, agreements, promises and any other obligations you like, by which they might be constrained to give or refuse support for anyone.

The constitution of a “Mafia” like the Sankt-Gallen group is in clear violation of that papal order.  In another section Universi Domini Gregis, St. John Paul II expounded further on this:

Confirming the prescriptions of my Predecessors, I likewise forbid anyone, even if he is a Cardinal, during the Pope’s lifetime and without having consulted him, to make plans concerning the election of his successor, or to promise votes, or to make decisions in this regard in private gatherings.

It must be noted that St. John Paul II published the above papal law in February 1996, the very year that the Sankt-Gallen group was formed.

The above revelations reinforce the shocking claims of Dr. Austen Ivereigh (author of the book The Great Reformer: Francis and the Making of a Radical Pope) who said that a group of Cardinals actively “campaigned” for the election of Pope Francis, in violation of the papal law.

Advocate of Same-Sex “Marriage”

Cardinal Danneels is recognized as one of the most radically liberal prelates of the Church.

He once advised the king of Belgium to sign an abortion law in 1990. He has refused to forbid pornographic, “educational” materials being used in Belgian Catholic schools.

He once said same-sex “marriage” was a “positive development”.  The cardinal also wrote a letter to Belgian Prime Minister Guy Verhofstadt praising him for “the approval of a legal statute for a stable relationship between partners of the same sex.” Verhofstadt’s government introduced same sex-‘marriage’ into Belgium in 2003.

The Vatican listed Danneels second in importance out of 45 delegates personally chosen by Pope Francis to participate in the upcoming meeting. ∎


  1. If we by remaining loyal to our lord and his principles, cause the churches to empty, we will be
    blessed. God is also the creator and owner of tlme. If we go with the times and or pope francis,
    we will gain only the abys. Time gives us the opportunity to show god what we are made of, and whose side wie are on. Pope francis is on the temporal side, which leeds to the abys. Our
    Lord calls on us to be on the eternal side, and to be in this world in this time, but not from this
    world nor obsessed with this time. The time is almost over. Pope francis is obsessed with here
    and today. I personaly do not want to spend eternity with him.

  2. Shame, shame, shame. Please have shame before the Lord. ” I have weighed you but I have found you wanting…of shame.” That’s not from the bible. That’s me, an ordinary lay Catholic who loves the Church.


    Penance Penance Penance
    to avoid Divine vengeance
    for not showing any remorse
    and trying our will to enforce
    The reign of the Impostor has arrived
    the Church, of TRUTH is being deprived
    the whole world hangs on his lips
    while being readied for a total eclipse
    The true followers of Christ
    trying to pull off the heist
    are persecuted for non-compliance
    and being countered with defiance
    When it will seem that all is lost
    everything sacred has been tossed
    God will deliver us from our agony
    and reign forever in all His Majesty

    The Ship of Peter is torn apart
    Martyred in its Holy Teaching
    It sinks and sinks, no work of art
    The bottom though never reaching
    Dissidents are screaming loud
    Leaving behind an awful niff
    Pretending to be proudly stout
    Gearing the Ship into a cliff
    Jesus shows His wounded Heart
    Smitten with a deadly dart
    Peter the Rock in desolation
    Deploring severe desecration
    Wake up, you Christian Brother
    Show now your truthful face
    With Mary our Heavenly Mother
    We’ll reach that Peaceful Place
    In allegiance to the Holy Father 
    United in prayer and fasting
    No victory will claim, but rather
    Satan’s defeat be everlasting.

    The signs of the times
    speak loud and clear
    the sounds of the chimes 
    are set in high gear 

    Progressives are winning
    the hearts and the mind
    of those who are sinning
    while keeping them blind

    They play the “good guys”
    people are in adoration
    gladly following their lies 
    on the way to damnation

    Rome will loose the faith
    said Our Lady at La Salette
    they close the Heaven’s gate
    playing the harbinger’s trumpet

    Nowadays everything goes
    “Jesus forgave all sinners”
    forget violent Death Throes
    In Jesus there are only winners

    No words about “go and sin no more”
    no life style change exhortation
    no admonition on how to restore
    the only true way to our salvation

    Rome Rome you kicked out Peter
    and gave Jesus the Judas kiss
    remember the end of this cheater
    “repent’ or end up in the abyss !!!

    1. I like your poem, a child militant, I depend on St Michaels’ prayer and the Traditional Latin mass offering the defeat/ downfall of church’s enemies. I recently discovered the shepherds who became wolves, traitors, blind guides, hypocrites and heretics. The Judas Isc. Cardinal of Germany should have been excommunicated but because Rome is in apostasy and under the power/ principality of the anti-christ, we really have to “suffer patiently” as martyrs of this age, uniting all our pains and sorrows with the sufferings of Our Lord and with Our Blessed Mother, In the end, The Immaculate Heart will triumph. I’m glad you mentioned Our Lady of La Sallete, Check out or search Our Lady of the Roses. Mea culpa, mea culpa.

      1. Feast Day of Saint Michael

        Saint Michael, my Hero
        stay at my side
        reduce satan to zero
        the one puffed up with pride

        Fight with me, Saint Michael,
        guide me in the Spiritual Battle
        help me in this reprisal cycle
        to silence the viper’s rattle

        Satan is a murderer and a thief
        he steals away God’s Creation
        he leads man to erroneous belief
        he is vicious, a vile abomination

        Saint Michael, “Who is as God” !
        let your battle-cry be heard
        using your sword as a prod
        you disperse all of satan’s herd

        Safely protected under your wings
        we will defy his spiritual plunder
        we will escape his poisonous stings
        YOU,cast him forever,deep down under

        Saint Michael Pray For Us

    Lord that doesn’t sound like you !
    “Of course not, child, I’m imitating
    the behavior of members of my crew
    it bothers Me it’s very irritating”

    Lord it’s urgent I’m in dire strait !
    “and I am in a meeting, child”
    the only thing for you is “to wait”
    Just “keep on trying” He then smiled

    “BTW you didn’t give Church tithing
    my representatives are really upset”
    Why ? oh Lord I’m barely surviving
    my job is gone, I’m in a lot of debt

    Your pastors, Lord, nowadays
    are consumed by worldly matters
    they put the needy in the sick bays
    far away avoiding nasty scatters

    “I know all to well what’s going on
    the day is close in justice I will come
    then they’ll long for times foregone
    Wanting it or not, they will succumb”

    Jesus You never needed a steeple
    Your word is not bound to a temple
    You preached in front of the people
    You’ve always been a living example

    “My child, just come to Me day or night
    I love you, I’m always there for you
    your future kiddy will be ever so bright
    pray for My pastors, only a few do”

    “I will never forsake you, My loved devotee
    I see everything, I know everything
    remember “nothing is impossible” for Me
    I give you my Royal Heavenly Blessing”

    Jesus, I offer you my pains and mishaps for the Church

  7. God bless you rita biesemans. Your poetry is not only beautiful, but it also hits the nail on the

  8. Thank you Erick, God bless you and may our heavenly Mother protect us and never let us go astray. My heart breaks when I think on how much She also must suffer because of the situation in the Church, no wonder she cries bloody tears.

  9. SAID our lady at Medjugorje “The West think that they are their own creators & salvation shall not come from the west but from Russia”, to know the real reason as to why Our lady at Fatima asked for the consecration of Russia to her & as a light to that, is seen Russia strongly supported by its orthodox Church going into Syria against the thugs & terrorist, basically created by Anti Christ Protestant America & the West,(with crooks like Carlo Maria’s as its agents), secretly controlled by them in all deceit, which Putin has revealed, killing & maiming the people includes its many Christians, giving no hope to its people.
    Even to the said consecration, the physical Church went about in circles , but the Church moving in the spirit last witnessed, called “Faithful”, to the truth of the “One Holy Catholic & Apostolic Church” indicating Rom 8:19- The sons of God, had already done so, is to witness the events that follow.—. Now one of them, St. Lawrence, not even a priest but a deacon, unto one of the leaders of Rome then who demanded the wealth of the Church be handed to him, was shown a gathering of poor people revealing “The wealth of the Church” for which he was Martyred , in contrast we have this Pope saying poor, poor but itching to compromise on the Faith that was once delivered unto the said saints, in order to retain the wealth of the church, its many institutions with many of them belonging to the Jesuits, making him to be a politician instead of a shepherd, contrary to the way of the Saints.


      Mary, Mystical City
      where Jesus, our Savior, resides
      look down on us with pity
      who are carried with the tides

      Will we ever fathom
      the greatness of Your being
      satan spitting his venom
      to prevent our souls from healing

      But You, God’s living Tabernacle
      are constantly pointing to Your Son
      to prevent us from sudden debacle
      to bring us the Victory already won

      We cry out to You, Oh Mystical City
      to pull us out of the dangerous sinkholes
      we are willing to be gritty
      to save our eternal souls

      Mary, our Mother spread Your Mantle over us to keep us safe in Your City.

  10. I’m ordinary Catholic but I believe to the promise of our Lord Jesus that He will be with us until the end of time…He will protect the Church from evil so let us fix our eyes to the Lord and pray for strong faith and love…..

  11. Our Lord will not allow His Church founded with shedding of His Precious Blood to be in the hands of evil men.He will come soon to expose them! Let us all be united in prayer with Our Blessed Mother on Our side, Our Lord conquers! Take the Rosary and pray, it is the weapon that defeats heresies!!


      When I pray the Rosary
      to Jesus and His Mother, Mary
      I think of all the happy histories
      when I pray the “joyful” mysteries

      I join her suffering and tears
      and go with her thru the fears
      of seeing her Son in agonizing pain
      the “sorrowful” broke her heart in twain

      But Heaven is always victorious
      Mary’s life ended very “glorious”
      back to the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit
      the title of “Heavenly Queen” She did inherit

      Each time I pray my Rosaries
      I’m collecting precious groceries
      white, red, yellow roses bouquets
      using my heart and soul as their displays

      Mary, my Heavenly Mother keep us safely under Your Mantle.

  12. Thanks for exposing some of these Traitors of our Catholic faith, they are like Judas Iscariot’s flock. They should have been “Excommunicated, Condemned, Anathemized, for their heresy, apostacy, etc…misleading, deceiving, Lording over the sheep, so they are now the hypocrites, parasites, blind guides. The WOLVE cardinals and bishops are now our enemies within. I know, I am guilty, pardon me for writing this, Pray for me, but Our Lord said: There’s nothing hidden that will not be revealed and nothing covered that will not be published, and also: The exalted shall be humbled, my prayers today is: To have the grace to love these enemies within Who are destroying our own. Let us offer sacrifices for increase of love for Our Lord in the Bl/ Sacrament, reparations for sacrileges, reparations for the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Deo Gratias. +++

  13. What the “mafia club” does is to divide Catholics in the term “Conservative & Liberals’ seemingly like the order of the two Houses of Congress , they whose Job is to divide to the man made philosophies, specific to Freemasonry even the theory of ” Divide & Rule”. For just as in Christ there is no Jew or Gentile etc so also in Christ there is no ‘Conservative or Liberals’ , for where there is the Truth there is none of this, which are but to divisions; is but to see the Pope sort of being led into these terms, but thanks to the Church that moves in the Spirit, called “Faithful” wherein is the truth.
    Now unto the Church of Thyatira said the son of God with eyes as of fire– “For those who have not known the Depths of Satan , I will give them the ” Morning Star” also did he warn of the Jezebel Spirit . Now to this Jezebel spirit , the same spirit that beheaded John the Baptist (((who was last witnessed in the spirit with only his head upon a cross & laughing away to glory, the wild man that he was said to have been, which but denotes that God always has the last laugh revealed through his saints))) the spirit of Adultery & Divorce, that so rules through the western philosophies of the day,( in the beliefs of Egypt that Physically enslaved a people , now out to enslave the world spiritually) was witnessed in the Spirit full of “Spite & Hatred” where its manifestation in the physical becomes through much cunning & deceit, is but to know that the truth is revealed in the spirit, the very Spirit of Truth, for before the Holy spirit none can lie whether it be Jezebel or her mentor satan. In direct contrast to the Jezebel is “Morning Star” true to its name, revealed as most Humble & Loving even with eyes as of fire, a sheer Pleasure & Delight unto the sons of men, the same whether in spirit or otherwise, does not change revealing the truth of God – as the same yesterday, today & tomorrow, is but to know the difference & the contrast between the words ” depth of satan” & the ” Morning star”, through Eden.
    As for the Jezebel spirit to the words in 1 John2:19 ” They who were with us , went out from among us——- They went out from among us so that they may be MANIFESTED, that they were not all of us”. This reveal the Apostates pertaining to the heresy that has been attacking the Church from the beginning unto its manifestation -The Protestant rebellion that became established through a kings Harlory by the same ” Adultery & Divorce” as its very roots defining the character of the Jezebel, revealing her in the word “Manifested” in 1 John2: 19.

  14. Interestingly, To the Election of Pope Benedict, it is stated that there came a hindu Priest asking the cardinals not to Elect Pope Benedict, was not this also the interest of Sankt- Gallen(though meaning St. Gallen, but a Fascist Echoe) group 0r “Gang. But the important point is that, not Electing Pope Benedict, would have resulted in a break of St. Malachy’s Prophecy, of the 111th. Pope, The Glory of the Olives, hindering the coming of “Peter the Roman” .
