Benedict XVI, Address, Nov. 12, 2005: “In this regard, I ask you, venerable Brothers, to convey my cordial greeting to Patriarch Maxim, First Hierarch of the Orthodox Church of Bulgaria. Please express to him my best wishes for his health and for the happy resumption of his ministry. I still cherish lively memories of the respectful and brotherly welcome he gave to my beloved Predecessor, Pope John Paul II, during the Pastoral Visit he made to your Country.” (L’Osservatore Romano, Nov. 23, 2005, p. 9.)
Benedict XVI encourages the non-Catholic, schismatic Patriarch to resume his non-Catholic and schismatic ministry! It’s just amazing, isn’t it? This proves again that Benedict XV is not a Catholic. He holds that being a Catholic, accepting Vatican I and the Papacy are meaningless.
