Pax Vobis, Cardinal Ratzinger!
The warning through you, to the key members of the Church in reference
of the rampant sexual abuse by members of the clergy of the Roman
Catholic Church, was ignored.
We are not surprised. The Warnings delivered by the Mother of God, the
One used by the Church to enrich its coffers by exploiting Her Holy
Name, are also ignored.
Know that what the scandal which is now rocking the Roman Catholic
Church is of your own doing - and this, friend, it is only the
You, and those like you who have chosen to ignore the pleas and
warnings from Heaven may learn exactly what Jesus Christ meant when He
said: "But whoever blasphemes
against the Holy Spirit will never have forgiveness, but is guilty of
everlasting sin." [Mark 3: 29]
Personally, I have fully understood what was meant when "...one like a son of man..." [Rev.
1:13] said "So, because you
are lukewarm, neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth."
"Whoever has ears ought to hear what
the Spirit says to the churches." [Rev. 2:22]
You have had your opportunities. You have been amply warned
