In another article we pointed out that in August the Vatican II sect held an official funeral for the leader of a non-Catholic sect, Bro. Roger of Taize. Benedict XVI said that the founder of the Protestant sect was “God’s faithful servant” and went to heaven.
Benedict XVI, Aug. 17, 2005, on Bro. Roger: “Bro. Roger Schutz [founder of a non-Catholic sect] is in the hands of eternal goodness, of eternal love; he has arrived at eternal joy…” (L’Osservatore Romano, August 24, 2005, p. 19; Zenit News Report, Aug. 17, 2005)
Much ado was made by members of the Vatican II sect about whether Benedict XVI had deliberately given Communion to Bro. Roger. The famous Novus Ordo apostate George Weigel wrote an article about how it was just a mistake. This is clearly ridiculous, since Benedict XVI knew Bro. Roger for a long time. When he gave him Communion, he knew exactly what he was doing. Further, the Vatican II sect has repeatedly taught that it’s lawful for non-Catholics to receive Communion (Vatican II, New Catechism, New Code of Canon Law), so it should come as no surprise that Benedict XVI carries out this teaching in practice.
But we must note the hypocrisy and blindness of all those people who attempted to explain away Benedict XVI’s action of giving “Communion” to Bro. Roger. They act as if they have a problem with the idea of Benedict XVI giving “Communion” to Bro. Roger, when they have no problem with the fact that Benedict XVI clearly stated that the heretic Bro. Roger went to heaven. What is worse? Is it worse to say that a heretic is able to participate in Eucharistic Communion, or is it worse to say that a heretic has attained eternal communion with God in the Beatific Vision? Both statements are horrible and heretical, but it is obviously worse to say that a heretic has attained eternal communion with God in the Beatific Vision. But the Novus Ordo apostates like Weigel have no problem with that statement. This is because they have no Faith, and only care about externals and appearances.
Well, here is more from Benedict XVI on Bro. Roger. In this quote, we see that Benedict XVI also said that Bro. Roger is guiding us from on high. He also said that we must listen to the “witness” of this founder of his own religion from within ourselves!
Benedict XVI, Address to Protestants at World Youth Day, August 19, 2005: “Bro. Roger Schutz… He is now visiting us and speaking to us from on high. I think that we must listen to him, from within we must listen to his spiritually-lived ecumenism and allow ourselves to be led by his witness towards an interiorized and spiritualized ecumenism.” (L’Osservatore Romano, August 24, 2005, p. 9.)
