When he resigned the deal was that
he would not interfere, would not comment.
He said he would devote himself to prayer & meditation.
He just proved why it isn’t kosher to have living ex-popes.
Beyond the bloody pale. Plus in a book being sold for PROFIT. He is a shameless German.
This is unacceptable.
Pope Francis, alas, is lame in many ways. He will let this insult pass. Shame. If Francis was a forceful he would excommunicate the ex-pope and kick him back to Germany. But, that will not happen. Instead this shameless ex-pope — with his female muse and live-in male secretary — will now go onto continually undermine the pope.
This is why I have always opposed letting popes resign/retire. Just does not work.
