Benedict XVI, Catechesis, May 7, 2008, welcoming Eastern Schismatic Karekin II: “Dear Brothers and Sisters, As you see we have with us this morning His Holiness Catholicos Karekin II, Supreme Patriarch and Catholicos of All Armenians, and a distinguished delegation… my beloved Predecessor John Paul II gave him a famous relic of St. Gregory the Illuminator… I am sure that this visit of the venerable Supreme Patriarch and Catholicos of All Armenians will help to intensify the relations of fraternal friendship that bind our Churches. “
Benedict XVI, May 9, 2008, Speech to Karekin II of Armenia: “The path towards the restoration of full and visible communion among all Christians may seem long and arduous. Much remains to be done to heal the deep and painful divisions that disfigure Christ’s Body… The recent history of the Armenian Apostolic Church has been written in the contrasting colors of persecution and martyrdom, darkness and hope, humiliation and spiritual rebirth. Your Holiness and the members of your delegation have personally lived through these contrasting experiences in your families and in your own lives. The restoration of freedom to the Church in Armenia has been a great joy for us all. An immense task of rebuilding the Church has been laid on your shoulders. I cannot but voice my great esteem for the remarkable pastoral results that have been achieved in such a short time, both in Armenia and abroad, for the Christian education of young people, for the training of new clergy, for building new churches and community centers, for charitable assistance to those in need, and for promoting Christian values in social and cultural life. Thanks to your pastoral leadership, the glorious light of Christ shines again in Armenia and the saving words of the Gospel can be heard once more.”
Benedict XVI praises the schismatic Karekin II by calling him “Holiness and the venerable Supreme Patriarch of All Armenians.” He also praises the act of giving relics to schismatics; he also says that the schismatics have true martyrs, which is heresy. Then he utters the following incredible heresy: “An immense task of rebuilding the Church has been laid on your shoulders. I cannot but voice my great esteem for the remarkable pastoral results that have been achieved in such a short time, both in Armenia and abroad, for the Christian education of young people, for the training of new clergy, for building new churches …” Benedict XVI says the true Church of Christ has been laid on the shoulders of an open schismatic! He then says that he has great esteem for the schismatics’ remarkable pastoral work and leadership! These speeches demonstrate, once again, that Benedict XVI is a total schismatic.
