Not So Fast

The Pope Emeritus' Secretary says the story that Benedict abdicated as a result of direction from a mystical experience is a fabrication:

VATICAN CITY — Archbishop Georg Ganswein, retired Pope Benedict XVI’s longtime personal secretary, said a story about the pope resigning after a “mystical experience” was completely invented.

“It was invented from alpha to omega,” the archbishop said Aug. 24 in an interview on Italy’s Canale 5 television news. “There is nothing true in the article.”

Confusion reigns these days on most fronts.

It appears some are trying to produce a cult of personality around Francis to get another JPII (God forbid).
