Archbishop Viganò on the Conclave, Provocations and Schism

Following Francis’ announcement of a consistory scheduled for 30 September for the appointment of twenty-one new cardinals of the Holy Roman Church, Aldo Maria Valli interviewed Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò on the subject. 

Valli: Your Excellency, here some say that among these last cardinals there could be the successor of Francis. Do you share?

Viganò: I doubt that the College of Cardinals – once the Sacred College – will want to elect a conservative or even moderately progressive Pope; indeed it is evident that the next Conclave will constitute a provocation. Almost all the Cardinals were created “in the image and likeness” of Bergoglio and they will be the ones to choose his successor – perhaps he is alive, given the new trend of Renunciation. If the voters had even a minimum of love for the Church, they would have to make themselves docile to the action of the Holy Spirit; but we know that this conglomeration of heretics – with rare exceptions – has no intention of letting the Lord do it, because if he did so he would seal his own condemnation. But the good Lord sometimes reserves unexpected surprises.

What is the logic followed by Bergoglio in the appointments?

Bergoglio’s logic is very evident: he wants to create the premises for a schism, which he denies and deplores in words, but which he has been preparing for some time. Bergoglio wants to separate, in one way or another, the good part of the faithful and clerics from the official Church; and to achieve this, to ensure that they distance themselves from the modernist Sanhedrin, he has placed in key positions in the Roman Curia those characters who guarantee the worst possible management of the dicasteries entrusted to them, with the worst possible result and the greatest damage to the ecclesial body.

The progressive restrictions on the celebration of the ancient liturgy serve to confine conservatories to hunting reserves, to then channel them towards the Society of Saint Pius X, as soon as the Synod will lead to their tragic consequences the doctrinal, moral and disciplinary changes that are in the pipeline and will cause an exodus of Catholics in what, after the suppression or normalization of the Ecclesia Dei Institutes, will become the “monopolist” of Tradition. But at that point – that is, when the traditional Catholics have migrated into the Society and its leaders believe they have won a victory over the competition from the suppressed Summorum Pontificum– a new intolerable provocation will force at least one parade of the Society of Saint Pius X to distance themselves from Bergoglian Rome, sanctioning the “excommunication” of traditionalism, no longer represented within the official Church, if it ever was. For this reason, in my opinion, it is important to maintain a certain fragmentation, in order to make the malicious maneuver of expelling traditional Catholics from the ecclesial body more complex.
