This is so strange. Why? Because as a staunch Catholic that I am, I always sensed that Pope Benedict could never be invaded by Satan. He would fight him as Saint Pio did...physically as the witnesses have said. Saint Padre Pio had so many gifts, bi-location, reading of your minds & knowing people's history, not to mention the stigmata, all of which were documented by many medical doctors. Not much of the world knew anything about Padre Pio, because the Catholic Church punished him and didn't believe in all his miracles that were reported. He humbly obeyed the Church which was as he should do. They did an excellent movie about his life with Sergio Castillitto I highly recommend with stunning acting.
Moreover, it's important to understand that the 3 young Portugese children of Fatima, who predicted the Miracle of the Sun on October 13, 1917 which was witnessed by over 30,000 - 100,000 people, of them, the one child who survived to live a long life, said that the Blessed Virgin Mother had told her that the 3rd secret should be revealed to the Church in 1960. Well, it wasn't. Not long after, President Kennedy, a Catholic, was murdered. This is when Vatican II occurred, and ultimately the Church had recommended it should not be revealed. There is some speculation which I have not confirmed that Pope Benedict and Pope John Paul III wanted to reveal it.
Do you know what that 3rd Secret was all about? It was a prediction that the Catholic Church would be invaded by a Satan, UNLESS they did what Lucia (Sister Lucia--the surviving child) said to do as the Blessed Mother had revealed. So, the Church actually kept this 3rd Secret from the public for decades, and hence, Satan entered the Church from then on to today's date in a variety of ways. Although Cardinal Ratzinger had nothing to do with the infestation of the homosexual priests, he was smeered in the Media (same thing as they did to Dr. Paul). It's ironic that the very thing the Church *should* have done that would have countered Satan's attack, was the very thing they didn't do.
Is it fate, or not? I don't know, but Cardinal Ratzinger's (Pope Benedict) famous interview in 1984 with Vittorio Messori, Cardinal Ratzinger said the Secret concerns “the dangers threatening the faith and life of the Christian, and therefore the world. And also the importance of the last times (novissimi).”
Then there is the famous quote from Luigi Cardinal Ciappi, personal theologian to four Popes up to and including Pope John Paul II:
“In the Third Secret it is foretold, among other things, that the great apostasy in the Church begins at the top.”
So, I really do fear who will take the reigns of this next Pope. We shall see, but in light of all the evil things happening in our world, well...
