TRADCATKNIGHT: Why is the Fatima Center twisting Fr. Gruner’s history? Louie Verricchio
Surely Mr. Ferrara knows that Fr. Gruner had publicly made known his belief that Benedict is still the Pope; stating very plainly, “Whatever he was doing [with the Declaratio given on 10 February 2013], he was not resigning the papacy.” As such, it is clear that Fr. Gruner believed that Francis “was not validly elected [pope], although he acts like one;” i.e., that he is an anti-pope in precisely the sense described by Mr. Ferrara. Furthermore, Mr. Ferrara must know that the “Fatima priest” continued to pray for “Benedict, our Pope” during the celebration of Holy Mass; even well after Jorge Mario Bergoglio assumed the name Francis and started acting like he is pope.
