Excerpts from my CRITICIZING VATICAN COUNCIL II-IS IT HERESY?
An Italian priest named Fr. Luigi Villa (3 Feb 1918-18 Nov 2012*) of the diocese of Brescia was blessed by St. Padre Pio, by his own Archbishop Msgr. Giambattista Bosio and by Venerable Pope Pius XII who approved the mandate given by Padre Pio to Fr. Villa to dedicate his entire life to defend the Church of Christ from the work of Freemasonry and other errors in the highest echelons of the Church. This was brought to my notice by the ephesians511 blog: https://ephesians511blog.com/2015/08/29/who-is-father-luigi-villa-by-dr-franco-adessa/
From 1998, Fr. Villa has written several voluminous books on the errors perceived by him in some of the sixteen Documents of the Second Vatican Council and sent them to the Pope and to each and every Cardinal, Bishop and parish priest in Italy… and he has received no refutal that I know of to all of the factual and frightening information that he has disclosed. (No condemnation or criticism of Fr. Villa can be located on the Internet either, to the best of my knowledge.) *http://padrepioandchiesaviva.com/In_Memoriam_Fr.html
“After Vatican II, a tornado seemed to have hit the Church” -Dr. Alice von Hildebrand
Present at the Demolition – An interview with Dr. Alice von Hildebrand
EXTRACT Bold emphases mine
The Latin Mass magazine, Summer 2001
The following conversation with Dr. Alice von Hildebrand opens our discussion of this issue’s focus: The Crisis in the Church: Scenarios for a Solution.
Dr. von Hildebrand, professor of philosophy emeritus of Hunter College (City University of New York), has just completed The Soul of a Lion, a biography of her husband, Dietrich
(called “a twentieth-century Doctor of the Church by Pope Pius XII”).
AVH: […] There have been two books* published in Italy in recent years that confirm what my husband had been suspecting for some time; namely, that there has been a systematic infiltration of the Church by diabolical enemies for much of this century. My husband was a very sanguine man and optimistic by nature. During the last ten years of his life, however, I witnessed him many times in moments of great sorrow, and frequently repeating, “They have desecrated the Holy Bride of Christ.” He was referring to the “abomination of desolation” of which the prophet Daniel speaks.
TLM: This is a critical admission, Dr. von Hildebrand. Your husband had been called a twentieth-century Doctor of the Church by Pope Pius XII. If he felt so strongly, didn’t he have access to the Vatican to tell Pope Paul VI of his fears?
AVH: But he did! I shall never forget the private audience we had with Paul VI just before the end of the Council. It was on June 21, 1965. As soon as my husband started pleading with him to condemn the heresies that were rampant, the Pope interrupted him with the words, “Lo scriva, lo scriva.” (“Write it down.”) A few moments later, for the second time, my husband drew the gravity of the situation to the Pope’s attention. Same answer. His Holiness received us standing. It was clear that the Pope was feeling very uncomfortable. The audience lasted only a few minutes. Paul VI immediately gave a sign to his secretary, Fr. Capovilla, to bring us rosaries and medals. We then went back to Florence where my husband wrote a long document (unpublished today) that was delivered to Paul VI just the day before the last session of the Council. It was September of 1965. After reading my husband’s document, he said to my husband’s nephew, Dieter Sattler, who had become the German ambassador to the Holy See, that he had read the document carefully, but that “it was a bit harsh.” The reason was obvious: my husband had humbly requested a clear condemnation of heretical statements.
TLM: You realize, of course, Doctor, that as soon as you mention this idea of infiltration, there will be those who roll their eyes in exasperation and remark, “Not another conspiracy theory!”
AVH: I can only tell you what I know. It is a matter of public record, for instance, that Bella Dodd, the ex-Communist who reconverted to the Church, openly spoke of the Communist Party’s deliberate infiltration of agents into the seminaries. She told my husband and me that when she was an active party member, she had dealt with no fewer than four cardinals within the Vatican “who were working for us.”
Many a time I have heard Americans say that Europeans “smell conspiracy wherever they go.” But from the beginning, the Evil One has “conspired” against the Church – and has always aimed in particular at destroying the Mass and sapping belief in the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist. That some people are tempted to blow this undeniable fact out of proportion is no reason for denying its reality. On the other hand, I, European born, am tempted to say that many Americans are naïve; living in a country that has been blessed by peace, and knowing little about history, they are more likely than Europeans (whose history is a tumultuous one) to fall prey to illusions. Rousseau has had an enormous influence in the United States. When Christ said to His apostles at the Last Supper that “one of you will betray Me,” the apostles were stunned. Judas had played his hand so artfully that no one suspected him, for a cunning conspirator knows how to cover his tracks with a show of orthodoxy.
TLM: Do the two books by the Italian priest you mentioned before the interview contain documentation that would provide evidence of this infiltration?
*The two books I mentioned were published in 1998* and 2000** by an Italian priest, Don Luigi Villa of the diocese of Brescia, who at the request of Padre Pio has devoted many years of his life to the investigation of the possible infiltration of both Freemasons and Communists into the Church.
My husband and I met Don Villa in the sixties. He claims that he does not make any statement that he cannot substantiate. When *Paulo Sesto Beato?
Paul VI … beatified? (1998) was published the book was sent to every single Italian bishop. None of them acknowledged receipt; none challenged any of Don Villa’s claims. The interview continues further below.
[“The Pope, Cardinals, Bishops and thousands of Italian Priests were given a copy of this book simultaneously. The diocese of Brescia was in turmoil. The Bishop, Msgr. Bruno Foresti, promised the diocesan clergy that a book to refute that of Father Villa would be written. After more than twelve years, those promises and commitments haven’t even appeared on the horizon! The result of the book was clear to everyone: it had blocked the ‘beatification cause’ of Paul VI. No one was able to refute the volume…”
The interview continued:
In this book, he relates something that no ecclesiastical authority has refuted or asked to be retracted – even though he names particular personalities in regard to the incident. It pertains to the rift between Pope Pius XII and the then Bishop Montini (the future Paul VI) who was his Undersecretary of State. Pius XII, conscious of the threat of Communism, which in the aftermath of World War II was dominating nearly half of Europe, had prohibited the Vatican staff from dealing with Moscow. To his dismay, he was informed one day through the Bishop of Uppsala (Sweden) that his strict order had been contravened. The Pope resisted giving credence to this rumor until he was given incontrovertible evidence that Montini had been corresponding with various Soviet agencies. Meanwhile, Pope Pius XII (as had Pius XI) had been sending priests clandestinely into Russia to give comfort to Catholics behind the Iron Curtain. Every one of them had been systematically arrested, tortured, and either executed or sent to the gulag. Eventually a Vatican mole was discovered: Alighiero Tondi, S.J., who was a close advisor to Montini. Tondi was an agent working for Stalin whose mission was to keep Moscow informed about initiatives such as the sending of priests into the Soviet Union.
Add to this Pope Paul’s treatment of Cardinal Mindszenty. Against his will, Mindszenty was ordered by the Vatican to leave Budapest. As most everyone knows, he had escaped the Communists and sought refuge in the American embassy compound. The Pope had given him his solemn promise that he would remain primate of Hungary as long as he lived. When the Cardinal (who had been tortured by the Communists) arrived in Rome, Paul VI embraced him warmly, but then sent him into exile in Vienna. Shortly afterwards, this holy prelate was informed that he had been demoted, and had been replaced by someone more acceptable to the Hungarian Communist government. More puzzling, and tragically sad, is the fact that when Mindszenty died, no Church representative was present at his burial.
Another of Don Villa’s illustrations of infiltration is one related to him by Cardinal Gagnon. Paul VI had asked Gagnon to head an investigation concerning the infiltration of the Church by powerful enemies. Cardinal Gagnon (at that time an Archbishop) accepted this unpleasant task, and compiled a long dossier, rich in worrisome facts. When the work was completed, he requested an audience with Pope Paul in order to deliver personally the manuscript to the Pontiff. This request for a meeting was denied. The Pope sent word that the document should be placed in the offices of the Congregation for the Clergy, specifically in a safe with a double lock. This was done, but the very next day the safe deposit box was broken and the manuscript mysteriously disappeared. The usual policy of the Vatican is to make sure that news of such incidents never sees the light of day. Nevertheless, this theft was reported even in L’Osservatore Romano (perhaps under pressure because it had been reported in the secular press). Cardinal Gagnon, of course, had a copy, and once again asked the Pope for a private audience. Once again his request was denied. He then decided to leave Rome and return to his homeland in Canada. Later, he was called back to Rome by Pope John Paul II and made a cardinal. The interview continues further below.
**Fr. Luigi Villa’s December 1999 book (which Dr. Alice von Hildebrand refers to as published in the year 2000) “Pope Paul VI, a Pope on Trial?” (Paolo VI: process a un Papa?), a continuation of the previous book, “Paul VI beatified?” was the answer to the attempt by the Vatican to continue the “cause of beatification” of Paul VI with the visit of Pope John Paul II in Brescia, in 1998.
On January 31, 2003, the 380-page third book of Father Villa: “The ‘New Church’ of Paul VI” was published, and as always sent to the top of the Church and to part of the Italian clergy. The book was devastating and the reaction was … a deadly silence!
In December, 2008, Father Villa received his first award which was the “International Inars Ciociaria Journalist Award,” «… for his very extensive work as a journalist, author of books and pamphlets on theology, asceticism, non-fiction … and for his commitment to defend the Christian roots of Europe and for his protection of truth against forces alien to our civilization.»
In October, 2009, he was awarded the “Cultural Prize of Val Vibrata di Teramo” for being «a journalist, an outstanding writer, an incorruptible editor, Head Publisher and Editor of “Chiesa viva”,» but also «for being an eminent theologian devoting his ‘entire life to defend the Catholic religion and disseminating the historical truth and living according to the Gospel!»
It all began when Fr. Luigi Villa was asked by St. Padre Pio to dedicate his entire life to defend the Church of Christ from the work of Freemasonry, especially the ecclesiastical [Freemasonry].
The Bishop of Chieti, the then superior of Fr. Luigi Villa, Msgr. Giambattista Bosio, was told by the Papal Secretary of State, Cardinal Domenico Tardini that Pope Pius XII had approved the mandate given by Padre Pio to Fr. Villa, but with two conditions: Father Luigi had to have a degree in dogmatic theology, and that he had to be placed under the direction of Card. Alfredo Ottaviani, Prefect of the Holy Office, Card. Pietro Parente, and Card. Pietro Palazzini.
“In the second half of 1963, Father Villa had his second meeting with Padre Pio. As soon as he saw him, Padre Pio said: «I have been waiting for you for a long time!» …Padre Pio embraced Father Villa and said: «Courage, courage, courage! for the Church is already invaded by Freemasonry,» adding: «Freemasonry has already reached the Pope’s slippers.» (those of Paul VI!)”
In his three books, Fr. Luigi Villa revealed the list of high-ranking Freemasons in the Church and at the Vatican – including the Second Vatican Council — the list including Pope Paul VI, that Pope Paul VI was a homosexual, and the fact that Cardinal Giuseppe Siri was chosen by the conclave following the death of Popes John XXIII and Paul VI in 1963 and 1978 respectively but was forced to withdraw because of threats from the Freemasons, and that Cardinal Luciani who was finally elected and became Pope John Paul I was murdered 33 days later.
“The ’cause of beatification’ continued to proceed until the year 1997. Father Villa was aware of the fact that Cardinal Pietro Palazzini had sent a letter to the Postulator for the ’cause of beatification’ of Paul VI that contained three names of the last homosexual lovers of Paul VI.
Cardinal Pietro Palazzini was an authority in this field, because the Cardinal held two binders of documents that demonstrated, unequivocally, the impure and unnatural vice of Paul VI.”
“The voice of Father Villa was his magazine ‘Chiesa viva‘ and this ‘voice’ had to be silenced. If the magazine was not immediately frontally attacked, it had to do with the fact that the Deputy Director of “Chiesa viva” was the famous German philosopher and converted Jew, Prof. Dietrich von Hildebrand, whom Paul VI knew, but also feared.”

The interview continued:
TLM: Why did Don Villa write these works singling out Paul VI for criticism?
AVH: Don Villa reluctantly decided to publish the books to which I have alluded. But when several bishops pushed for the beatification of Paul VI, this priest perceived it as a clarion call to print the information he had gathered through the years. In so doing, he was following the guidelines of a Roman Congregation, informing the faithful that it was their duty as members of the Church to relay to the Congregation any information that might militate against the candidate’s qualifications for beatification.
Considering the tumultuous pontificate of Paul VI, and the confusing signals he was giving, e.g.: speaking about the “smoke of Satan that had entered the Church,” yet refusing to condemn heresies officially; his promulgation of Humanae Vitae (the glory of his pontificate), yet his careful avoidance of proclaiming it ex cathedra; delivering his Credo of the People of God in Piazza San Pietro in 1968, and once again failing to declare it binding on all Catholics; disobeying the strict orders of Pius XII to have no contact with Moscow, and appeasing the Hungarian Communist government by reneging on the solemn promise he had made to Cardinal Mindszenty; his treatment of holy Cardinal Slipyj, who had spent seventeen years in a Gulag, only to be made a virtual prisoner in the Vatican by Paul VI; and finally asking Archbishop Gagnon to investigate possible infiltration in the Vatican, only to refuse him an audience when his work was completed – all these speak strongly against the beatification of Paolo VI, dubbed in Rome, “Paolo Sesto, Mesto” (Paul VI, the sad one).
That the duty to publish this depressing information was onerous and cost Don Villa great sorrow cannot be doubted. Any Catholic rejoices when he can look up to a Pope with boundless veneration. But Catholics also know that even though Christ never promised He would give us perfect leaders, He did promise that the gates of hell shall not prevail. Let us not forget that even though the Church has had some very bad popes, and some mediocre ones, she has been blessed with many great popes. Eighty of them have been canonized and several have been beatified. This is a success story that does not bear parallel in the secular world.
God alone is the judge of Paul VI. But it cannot be denied that his pontificate was a very complex and tragic one. It was under him that, in the course of fifteen years, more changes were introduced in the Church than in all preceding centuries combined. What is worrisome is that when we read the testimony of ex-Communists like Bella Dodd, and study Freemasonic documents (dating from the nineteenth century, and usually penned by fallen-away priests like Paul Roca), we can see that, to a large extent, their agenda has been carried out: the exodus of priests and nuns after Vatican II, dissenting theologians not censured, feminism, the pressure put on Rome to abolish priestly celibacy, immorality in the clergy, blasphemous liturgies (see the article by David Hart in First Things, April 2001, “The Future of the Papacy”), the radical changes that have been introduced into the sacred liturgy (see Cardinal Ratzinger’s book Milestones, pp. 126 and 148, Ignatius Press), and a misleading ecumenism. Only a blind person could deny that many of the Enemy’s plans have been perfectly carried out.
One should not forget that the world was shocked at what Hitler did. People like my husband, however, actually read what he had said in Mein Kampf. The plan was there. The world simply chose not to believe it.
But grave as the situation is, no committed Catholic can forget that Christ has promised that He will remain with His Church to the very end of the world. We should meditate on the scene related in the Gospel when the apostles’ boat was battered by a fierce storm. Christ was sleeping! His terrified followers woke Him up: He said one word, and there was a great calm. “O ye of little faith!” The end of the interview
More excerpts from my CRITICIZING VATICAN COUNCIL II-IS IT HERESY?
Vatican II About Face [EXTRACTS]
Fr. Luigi Villa, Th. D.,
208 pages, 2011
Despite all the post-Conciliar authoritarian voices’ attempts to silence any criticism, my articles portraying a critical analysis of the Second Vatican Council have created a certain amount of interest for they have discovered and pointed out multiple “errors” in the Council’s texts (Constitutions, Decrees and Declarations).
Up until now, only a certain number of Catholic critics had been outspoken about the fallacious arguments, contradictions, unforeseen resolutions and mysterious decisions of the post-Conciliar documents. However, no one had pointed fingers against the Council itself through a systematic study, setting up a direct comparison of their texts with the texts of the dogmatic teaching of Tradition (the Magisterium) throughout the twenty centuries of infallible ecumenical councils and teachings of all previous Popes.
It is clear that this study involves the question of the “theological status” to be attributed to Vatican II, that is, whether or not is covered by the charism of infallibility.
The best theologians have excluded [this charism] because it [the Council’s texts] contained so many grave “errors” already condemned by the solemn Magisterium of the Church.
Vatican II texts lack dogmatic definitions and the corresponding punishment for those who do not accept the doctrine.
But then Vatican II had defined nothing; therefore no one can appeal to them for several reasons.
For example: the “Constitution on the Liturgy” deliberately ignored Pius XII’s doctrine of “Mediator Dei”, as well as St. Pius X’s Encyclical which condemned Modernism; in addition, the statement on “religious freedom” in Pius IX’s “Syllabus” was ignored, in which he condemned, in No. 15, the argument of those who say that every man is free to embrace that religion which, in conscience, seems real, which excludes the rights of the revealing God, of which no man has a right to choose, but only to obey. No. 14 also condemns those who assert that the Church has no right to exercise judicial and coercive power.
These are just a few examples, like those found throughout our work, to prove that Vatican II was held on the verge of ruin.
I believe that there will come a day when Vatican II will be declared “null and void” in a solemn judgement of the Supreme Pontiff. It will then appear as an anomalous stone, abandoned at the back of a cemetery. (Pages 9 and 10 of 208)
The Second Vatican Council was one of the longest in history, from beginning to end.
It lasted five years, ten months and twenty-four days. It was one of the most difficult Councils: 168 General Congregations, over 60o0 written and oral statements, 10 public sessions, 11 Commissions and Secretaries, and hundreds of experts.
The results of it were four Constitutions, nine Decrees, and three Declarations.
For this reason, it has been compared to plowing a field. At the end of Vatican II, the Church opened to a trend f giving in to worldliness, the results of which were the desacralization, democratization, socialization and banalization of the Church, described by Cardinal Ottaviani as “an enormous deviation from the Catholic doctrine”.
How was it possible that three Popes had accepted a doctrine in clear contradiction with what 260 Pontiffs had supported? Monsignor Spadafora*, the brilliant professor from the Lateran University and an “expert” in the Sacred Scriptures, has stated that, “The Second Vatican Council is an abnormal Council.”
The unexpected reversal of the Catholic doctrinal guidelines, brought about by an Alliance of French and Belgian Cardinals and bishops, encouraged by experts like Rahner, Küng, De Lubac, Chenu, Congàr, and by Jesuits from the Pontifical Bible Institute, has converted Vatican II into an ominous “consultation” of Councils of Neo-Modernist “experts” who have duped the oblivious multitudes of Council Fathers. However, how did they manage to impact the Church’s doctrine? There has been no revealed truth left intact. From the beginning of the two Constitutions presented as the fundamental expression of the Council, “Lumen Gentium” and “Gaudium et Spes” contained errors, such as the expression by which the Mystical Body of Jesus Christ “subsists” in the Catholic Church, which contradicts the identity expressed by Saint Paul, that is, on the Body of Christ, and the perennial and infallible Magisterium of the Church, and also contradicts the dogma “there is no salvation out of the Church.” Not to mention clearly erroneous Documents such as “Nostra Aetate” (about non-Christian religions) and “Dignitatis Humanae” (about religious freedom); these errors are the origin of heretical and syncretistic manifestations such as the ecumenical day of Assisi… (Pages 13 and 14 of 208)
Theological qualification of the Second Vatican Council
We have already said that the Second Vatican Council, in its “Decrees”, did not have the charism of infallibility because it did not want to effectively use dogmatic definitions, that is, use the definition and reinforce them with the sanctions of anathemas against those who were contrary to the defined doctrines.
Therefore, none of the doctrines or Decrees from Vatican II have the charism of infallibility because the Council was limited to expressing Catholic doctrine in “pastoral form”. We know this from the words of Pope John XXIII and Pope Paul VI in the two opening speeches of Vatican II (October 11, 1962 and September 29, 1963)…
Vatican II was not a dogmatic Council and because of that it is inexplicable how it can be possible that the four Constitutions were named “Dogmatic”, for neither these nor other documents from the Council were defined by new dogmas, just like errors were not condemned. (Pages 35 and 36 of 208)
At this time, fifty years have passed since the closing of Vatican II, and we can see its “fruits.” The Council, which wanted a “Reform” for the betterment of the Church, instead, opened the doors to all the “errors” of modern society, that had already been denounced by the centuries-old Magisterium of the Popes, thereby undermining the doctrine and the structure of the Church itself. Vatican II, in fact, promoted doctrines in open contradiction with the Catholic faith. These doctrinal deviations are contained in Constitutions, Decrees, Declarations. Vatican II, therefore, taught and applied the “errors” and “heresies” that the Church had previously banned. (Page 152 of 208)

The Testimony of others
*2. Monsignor Francesco Spadafora, an expert in the Sacred Scriptures, has stated that, “The Second Vatican Council is an abnormal Council.” (http://chiesaviva.com/vaticano%20II%20dietro%20front%20ing.pdf
Having heard that, let us again listen to Dr. Fr. Luigi Villa:
After the Council, the faith of the faithful was so shaken that Cardinal Ottaviani asked all the Bishops of the world and the Superior Generals of the Orders and the Congregations, to respond to the inquiry on the danger for the “fundamental truths” of our Faith.
The Popes, before Vatican II, had always called to order and even made condemnations. Catholic liberalism was condemned by Pius IX; Modernism by Leo XIII; Syllogism by St. Pius X; Communism by Pius XI; Neo-Modernism by Pius XII. Thanks to this episcopal vigilance, the Church became strengthened and developed. There were numerous conversions by pagans and Protestants; heresy was in retreat and countries had sanctioned a more Catholic legislation.
Following Vatican II this position taken by the Church was rejected which became a tragedy never before experienced by the Church. The Council permitted people to doubt the truth. The consequences, therefore, were ever more serious. The doubts on the necessity of the Church and the Sacraments caused priestly vocations to disappear. The doubts on the necessity and nature of “conversion” were the ruin of the traditional spirituality in the Novitiates with the disappearance of religious vocations. It injected futility into the missions. The doubts on the legitimacy of authority and obedience, on the reasons for autonomy of conscience, of freedom, shook up all the social factions: the Church, religious societies, dioceses and civil societies, and especially the family.
The doubts on the necessity of Grace in order to be saved led to the lack of respect for Baptism, and the abandonment of the sacrament of Penance. The doubts on the necessity of the Church as the only source of salvation destroyed the authority of the Magisterium of the Church, as no longer “Magistra Veritatis”! [“The Teacher of Truth”!]
(Excerpt from Vatican II About Face, 2011, http://chiesaviva.com/vaticano%20II%20dietro%20front%20ing.pdf page 194)
Who can challenge the veracity of the observations and conclusions of Fr. Luigi Villa?
We have seen dissent as well as the criticism and even condemnation of some of the texts of the Council documents at every level among the eminent prelates of the Church who were present at all the four sessions of Vatican Council II. (I can present a whole lot more of this.)
It may be observed that the statements of the Cardinals endorse the criticisms of the Council documents by Fr. Luigi Villa, especially on the Conciliar document Dignitatis Humanae.
Would one label any or all of them heretics for their criticisms of the Second Vatican Council? END
Excerpts from NOVUS ORDO MASS A MOST TRAGIC ALTERNATIVE-CARDINAL OTTAVIANI
Don’t let anyone tell you the Council didn’t change much
By Robert Blair Kaiser, TIME magazine’s man at the Council, October 11, 2012 EXTRACT
The top cardinal in Rome, Alfredo Ottaviani, the pro-prefect of the Holy Office of the Inquisition, could not conceive of any of the changes that the word aggiornamento implied, and I soon found out from theologians like Yves Congar, Jean Daniélou, Karl Rahner, and Edward Schillebeeckx (all of whom had been silenced before Vatican II for their ‘radical thinking’) that Ottaviani was doing almost everything he could to put roadblocks in the way of Council’s major change-projects. And why wouldn’t he? His coat of arms said it all: Semper Idem. Always the same. (http://www.thetablet.co.uk/other/kaiser-vatican-ii-lecture)
At the end of Vatican II, the Church opened to a trend of giving in to worldliness, the results of which were the desacralization, democratization, socialization and banalization of the Church, described by Cardinal Ottaviani as “an enormous deviation from the Catholic doctrine“.
(Excerpt from Vatican II About Face, Dr. Fr. Luigi Villa, 2011, http://chiesaviva.com/vaticano%20II%20dietro%20front%20ing.pdf, Introduction)
Cardinal Ottaviani on Dignitatis Humanae:
Cardinal Ottaviani made the Council officials note that the Church had always admitted that no one could be forced to profess a certain faith; but that no true right could be claimed by whomever is at odds with the rights of God; that a real and authentic right to religious freedom objectively belongs to only those belonging to the true faith showing that it is extremely dangerous to allow the right of promoting any religion one wishes.
(Excerpt from Vatican II About Face, Dr. Fr. Luigi Villa, 2011, http://chiesaviva.com/vaticano%20II%20dietro%20front%20ing.pdf, page 154)
Cardinal Ottaviani, in fact, reminded that no one could be forced to profess the true religion, but that no man could have a right to religious freedom that was in conflict with the rights of God, and that it was dangerous, then, to affirm the legitimacy of the right of evangelization of other religions.

On 25 September 1969,
Ottaviani and Cardinal Antonio Bacci wrote a letter to Paul VI in support of a study by a group of theologians who under the direction of Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre criticized the new Order of Mass (in Latin, Novus Ordo Missae), and the new General Instruction (in Latin, Institutio Generalis), two sections (in not quite definitive form) of the revision of the Roman Missal that was promulgated on 3 April of that year but that actually appeared in full only in 1970. This letter became widely known as the “Ottaviani Intervention” (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ottaviani_Intervention) and is often appealed to by Traditionalist Catholics as support for their opposition to the revision of the Roman Rite Mass.
Who is Father Luigi Villa?
http://www.chiesaviva.com/donluigivilla%20ing.pdf – Bold emphases are the author’s, coloured are mine
By Dr. Franco Adessa
At the request of many people from Italy and abroad, and after more than twenty years of collaboration with this courageous Priest, I decided to write this short biography of Father Luigi Villa, because I can no longer be silent about the indescribable and unending persecution suffered by this old, faithful and incorruptible Minister of God!
Luigi Villa was born in Lecco, Italy, on February 3, 1918. Having completed his secondary school, high school and theology, he was ordained priest, on June 28, 1942.
He said his first Mass at the Cathedral of Lecco. He exercised his priestly ministry in his country of origin within the Comboni Institute for about ten years.
Father Villa was a real pursuer of vocations and a respected preacher and lecturer. His presence (work) was appreciated and requested in many cities and places of Italy. In addition, he devoted himself particularly to the training of young people.
It was exactly for this work, that is, his relationship with the youth and the influence he had on them, that procured a death sentence for him.
In fact, the Fascist party leader, Justice Minister, Roberto Farinacci, issued a death sentence against him. The reasoning was: «We do not know who Father Luigi Villa is. He apparently has been sent out to stir up the youth of the Republic.» Enforcement of the execution did not take place thanks to a “tip-off” made by an official of the Ministry of Justice, who, secretly and hastily, warned a confrere (or colleague) of Father Villa, Father Ceccarini – who lived at the Institute of the Comboni in Crema (a little town close to Brescia) with Father Luigi – in order to escape. So, Father Villa climbed out of a window and fled, exactly at the moment when a jeep arrived with six heavily armed soldiers of the firing squad.
This condemnation weighed on Father Villa for the duration of the Republic of Salò (the Republic created by Mussolini at the end of World War II). There was always a provisional atmosphere and a continuous threat surrounding Father Villa. Only at the end of the war, on July 25, 1945, was he liberated from this nightmare! During the war, Father Villa was consumed with the desire to save entire families of Jews. In fact, in obedience to the edicts of Pius XII, Father Luigi rescued 57 Jews. In three trips, on the mountains bordering Italy and Switzerland, he risked his life for them.
In early 1953, due to family problems, he left the Comboni Institute. At the invitation of the Archbishop of Ferrara, Msgr. Ruggero Bovelli, he was incardinated into this diocese, to establish an International Missionary Movement.
Meetings with Padre Pio
In those years, Father Villa continued his activities as a preacher and lecturer. In 1956, he held a series of lectures for the graduates of Bari. It is there, after a lunch of fish, that he was poisoned due to the clams in the spaghetti.
Informing his friend, Father Berni, who was chaplain at the airport of Bari, Father Villa was taken by some pilots to the nursing department of the airport. There, he was treated by a medical colonel. He remained there until he was well.
Before leaving Bari, Fr. Berni wanted Father Luigi to go with him to San Giovanni Rotondo. Arriving there, Fr. Berni asked him to wait while he went to the hotel “Santa Maria” and make reservations for lunch. Fr. Villa, then went to pray in the chapel of the Convent of Padre Pio.
The church was empty as he knelt in one of the pews. Suddenly, he sensed a presence and turned to see if someone was there: There was a young man, exceedingly beautiful, who asked him: «Do you want to meet Padre Pio?»
«No», said Father Villa, but the young man insisted: «Go, go on now, Padre Pio is waiting for you.»
Father Villa turned toward the person who had just spoken, but, there was no one any longer at his side. The person who had uttered those words had disappeared!
Then, he entered the Convent and went to the area of Padre Pio’s room. He noticed a strong fragrance of flowers and communicated it to a friar, who was passing, who said: «Good sign, good sign!» adding that Padre Pio would soon return to his cell. During the wait, Father Villa wrote a list of 12 questions in his notebook that he intended to ask the friar. After a while, he saw the door open, which was at the bottom of the stairs of the sacristy. As soon as Padre Pio entered, he looked at him (he was at the bottom of this narrow staircase, about twenty meters away) and said: «What is Father Villa doing here?» Then, he walked up to his room, No. 5, which he entered, followed by two doctors. After a few minutes, the doctors left and Padre Pio called Fr. Luigi and had him enter his room. Here, he answered his 12 questions and spoke for over half an hour, giving him an assignment: you must dedicate your entire life to defend the Church of Christ from the work of Freemasonry, especially the ecclesiastical [Freemasonry].
Father Villa, puzzled, said: «But I’m not prepared for such a commitment, I should also be protected by a Bishop.» Padre Pio interrupted him and said: «Go to the Bishop of Chieti, and he will tell you what to do.» Two days later, Father Villa departed from Bari and went to the Bishop of Chieti, Msgr. Giambattista Bosio.
Bishop of Chieti, Msgr. Giambattista Bosio
The Bishop asked: «Why are you here?» Father Luigi said: «Because Padre Pio told me to come to you.»
And then explained the reasons. But Msgr. Bosio said: «This is impossible! A bishop has only authority in his diocese, and your agenda is much broader! However, since you were told by Padre Pio whom I have never seen or known, I will go to Rome for a clarification.» In fact, Bishop Bosio went to the Secretary of State, Cardinal Domenico Tardini, to speak of the commitment Father Villa received from Padre Pio.
Domenico Tardini, Pope Pius XII
The Cardinal was immediately opposed to it, stating that such a task was reserved for only the top leadership of the Church, and not a simple priest. However, having heard that this project was initiated by Padre Pio, he said he would talk to the Holy Father. And he did.
When Msgr. Bosio came back to Cardinal Tardini, the Cardinal told him that Pius XII had approved the mandate given by Padre Pio to Fr. Villa, but with two conditions: Father Luigi had to have a degree in dogmatic theology, and that he had to be placed under the direction of Card. Alfredo Ottaviani, Prefect of the Holy Office, Card. Pietro Parente, and Card. Pietro Palazzini.
Cardinal Alfredo Ottaviani, Cardinal Pietro Parente, Cardinal Pietro Palazzini
These cardinals had to guide him and educate him on all the secrets of the Church relevant to his papal mandate. Msgr. Bosio transmitted to Father Villa the “conditions” of Pius XII, but, on his own, he added another one: «I accept the responsibility to be your Bishop, but I tell you: Never have anything to do with Montini!» Struck by the harshness of these words, Father Villa asked: «Who is Montini?» (Montini: later Paul VI)
Msgr. Bosio said: «I give you an example: I’m on this side of the table and you on the other side. On this side, there is Msgr. Giambattista Montini, on the other side, the rest of humanity.»
It should be noted that the Montini and Bosio families were both residents in Concesio (a town near Brescia). So, the Bosio family was well acquainted with Montini!
After this, Msgr. Bosio, by decree of May 6, 1957, secretly incardinated Father Villa, in his diocese of Chieti-Vasto.
Father Luigi, then enrolled at the University of Fribourg (CH) where he “received a diploma” in Sacred Theology in July of 1963. He graduated, then, at the Lateran University in Rome, on April 28, 1971.
In the second half of 1963, Father Villa had his second meeting with Padre Pio.
As soon as he saw him, Padre Pio said: «I have been waiting for you for a long time!» Padre Pio complained about the slowness with which Father Luigi had been proceeding with his assignment.
At the end of the encounter, Padre Pio embraced Father Villa and said: «Courage, courage, courage! for the Church is already invaded by Freemasonry,» adding: «Freemasonry has already reached the Pope’s slippers.» (Paul VI!)
In all those years, Father Villa worked as a secret agent of Card. Ottaviani, with the specialty of documenting the membership of senior officials of the Catholic Church into Freemasonry and to deal with some delicate questions of the Church.
This role made Fr. Villa at home and a person well known in Police Offices, Police Headquarters and other Agencies of General Investigations and Special Operations.
In September, 1978, during the brief pontificate of Pope Luciani, the “List of Pecorelli” appeared on “OP” (Political Observer), the magazine of Lawyer Mino Pecorelli. It was not a great surprise for Father Villa to read many names of senior officials as they had already been removed from their positions, some time before, since he had provided the documents to the Holy Office of their membership in Freemasonry.
One of the most famous cases was that one of Card. Joseph Suenens, driven from his headquarters in Brussels because he was found to be a Mason. He was also married and living with a son named Paul! Another “painful” case was that one of Card. Achille Lienart. In Paris, while waiting, near a Masonic Lodge, for the man who was to confirm the existence of documents attesting to the Masonic membership of Card. Lienart, Father Villa, suddenly, saw a young man running toward him. He assaulted Fr. Villa punching him with an “iron fist” in his face, shouting: «There is a devil on this earth!» Father Villa regained consciousness in a pharmacy, with his mouth full of blood, a broken jaw, and not one tooth left in his mouth.
Then one day in Haiti, he risked his life. He went to that country for a mission, but was seized by the military and was taken to a place, to be executed by shooting. But Father Villa had an inspiration: he asked the officer who guarded him, if he could speak with one of his dearest friends, the Superior of the local seminary. The officer, troubled by the request, went to his superiors and came back immediately, saying: «We made a mistake.» Father Villa was released at once.
Among the sensitive issues assigned to him by Card. Ottaviani, was a meeting with Lucia of Fatima. One day Cardinal Ottaviani told Fr. Villa: «I think I will send you to Fatima to speak directly with Sister Lucia. »
He accepted with joy. A business man from Padua joined him, Mr. Pagnossin, a convert of Padre Pio, who offered to pay for the trip and the stay in Portugal. Cardinal Ottaviani had provided him with a personal letter, signed by him, as Prefect of the Holy Office. This was to be delivered to the Bishop of Coimbra, to allow him to arrange a meeting with Sister Lucia.
But the Bishop of Coimbra, before granting the meeting with the Seer, picked up the phone and called the Vatican. Msgr. Giovanni Benelli answered but, before giving the permission, he told him that he wanted to talk to Paul VI, because Rome had given strict orders: “an interview” with Lucy was allowed only to Royalty and to Cardinals.
The Mason Msgr. Giovanni Benelli,
Pro-Secretary of State of Paul VI.
Msgr. Benelli, Pro-secretary of State, transmitted to the Bishop of Coimbra the prohibition of Paul VI for the request of an interview with Sister Lucia. Useless, then, was the insistence of Father Villa, in highlighting his role as the envoy of the Prefect of the Holy Office. However, he remained in Portugal, trying to overcome the resistance of the Bishop. After ten days, however, he had to resign himself to defeat. He only obtained permission from the Bishop to celebrate a Mass in the Chapel of the Convent.
When back in Italy, Father Luigi went immediately to report the incident to Card. Ottaviani. The Cardinal felt offended by the conduct of Paul VI, and immediately wrote a letter of protest. After returning later, in Rome, Cardinal Ottaviani told Father Villa that Paul VI had made an apology, saying, however, that Msgr. Benelli had made the decision. But the Cardinal pointed out that this was the usual method of the double-dealing of Paul VI.
As long as Pius XII lived, the Vatican, for Father Villa, was more than welcoming: in addition to meetings, related to his activities as a secret agent, Father Villa dined and supped at least fifty times with Cardinals and Bishops. But when Paul VI came to power, he found himself deprived of every hospitality and every opportunity to take steps to defend the Catholic Faith.
The premeditated failures
There were many initiatives and works that Father Villa tried to initiate but even under the pontificate of Pius XII, he was forced to fail.
As early as 1953, when he was incardinated in the diocese of Ferrara, Father Luigi planned the foundation of a great missionary movement formed mostly by technicians, under the title IMI (International Missionary Institute), but it was immediately stopped. On April 21, 1957, Father Villa founded the Movement “Euro-Afro-Asiatic,” linked to one of his magazines that bore the same title, and which had already been duly authorized by his Bishop, Msgr. Giambattista Bosio. But the movement also had a short life, because it was closed down. They made him quit, right after the first edition, another of his magazines: “Talk East-West,” which was powered by another Institute for “NonChristian Religions.”
Again they prevented him from founding a “Center for Theologians” to fight the resurgent Modernism and Progressivism in the Church. The order came directly from Msgr. Giovanni Benelli.
In that same period, still the same Masonic Pro-Secretary of State, Msgr. Benelli, prevented him from continuing a series of “Congresses of Study.” Father Villa managed to organize only the first three:
1. The First Congress of Rome, entitled “Orthodoxy and Orthopraxy” (October 1-4, 1974);
2. The Florence Congress, entitled: “The Woman in the Light of Catholic Theology” (Sept. 16-18, 1975);
3. The Second Congress of Rome, entitled: “Christianity and Atheistic Communism” (Sept. 20-22, 1977).
In the two Congresses in Rome, the presence of Cardinals prevented Msgr. Benelli to take direct action. However, for the Florence Congress, the Archbishop of Florence, Cardinal Florit, was ordered by Rome to prohibit participation in the Congress to all the clergy of Florence. The Cardinal, regretting that command, immediately communicated that to Father Villa and promised to send a Bishop to preside over the entire duration of the Conference. And so it happened!
Cardinal Ermenegildo Florit, Archbishop of Florence
Other initiatives that were aborted were: the establishment of a “third branch” of religious-seculars, to accompany the various Missionary Institutes, and the initiative of “recruitment” of “vocations” to the priesthood; initiatives that were then imitated by all the Seminaries and Missionaries Institutes. However, his initial plan of spiritual formation was deviated and ended with their secularization.
Personally, Father Villa found more than fifty men who had vocations and entered missionary seminaries. Men, who today, are priests. By now, it was clear that he was no longer permitted to make any steps, realize any idea, or start any project aimed to defend the Catholic Faith.
Father Villa had to refuse to accept offers of friends and … even enemies. He refused, in fact, several “donations” of villas and huge sums of money. A Cardinal even wanted to give him his entire property: two large primary and secondary schools, already in operation, and two villas with 60 acres of olive trees and a church. Then, Card. Giuseppe Siri offered him the Benedictine Convent in Genoa. But Father Villa rejected it all, always, because he had already foreseen the storm that was destroying the Church, and therefore preferred to stay poor. He did not want to be linked and involved in economic and financial issues. However, most importantly, he wished to remain free to deal with the mandate he had received from Padre Pio and Pope Pius XII to help the Church to heal the confused situation in which She would be found under the attacks of ecclesiastical Masonry!
Cardinal Giuseppe Siri
For this reason, he said “no” to two wealthy Americans who offered him billions if he gave them his magazine
He also had the odd “offer” of a billionaire American lawyer who said he would be willing to finance him every step of the way, if he could establish an organization to destroy the current traditional Church and establish a “new” one that would ensure triumph. Father Villa was always just as active in his priestly work of saving souls. A singular case occurred in 1957, when he had a meeting with the famous Italian writer, Curzio Malaparte. First associated with Fascism and then, towards the end of his life, to Communism, Malaparte was lying in a clinic in Rome with cancer. His room was guarded by the famous Communist thug, Secchia, to prevent passage to anyone who was not leftist. He also tried to prevent the entrance of Father Villa, but could not. Malaparte smiled at him and said: «You have character. You must fight.»
Another time, when he went to visit him, Father Villa spoke of his plan to found a new Institute. So great was the enthusiasm of Malaparte that he promised that, if he recovered, he would put his pen to his service. The last time he saw him, Malaparte told Father Villa that, after much thought, he had decided to give him his villa in Capri, as the first headquarters of the Institute he wanted to found. But nothing came of it because only a few days later, the room of Malaparte was reinforced by the Communist, Secchia and a number of Communists of the management of the magazine “Vie Nuove” (New Ways), who were successful in receiving his villa in Capri as a donation from Malaparte. (How this happened, Father Villa never knew!)
Father Villa in Brescia
It was the grave situation, in which his parents were in, that pushed Father Villa to accept the incardination in his diocese from the Archbishop of Chieti, Msgr. Giambattista Bosio, as was suggested by the Secretary of State, Cardinal Tardini. But it was a secret incardination, made in the Bishop’s office, and, as the only witness, his secretary, Msgr. Antonio Stoppani. But Msgr. Bosio, after receiving the approval from Rome, moved Father Villa to the diocese of Brescia, with the approval of the local bishop to allow Father Villa to help his parents even more.
On September 15, 1962, Father Villa opened a “House of Formation,” in Codolazza Concesio – Brescia, entitled “Villa Immacolata (House of the Immaculate), to erect the “Institute Operaie di Maria Immacolata” (Institute Workers of Mary Immaculate) founded under the authorship of Bishop Bosio.
In 1964, the Senior Bishop of Brescia, Msgr. Giacinto Tredici, died and was replaced by the Montinian, Msgr. Luigi Morstabilini.
On December 12, 1964, Msgr. Morstabilini promised Msgr. Bosio that he would soon grant the Decree of Approval of the Institute; the same promise he made to Fr. Villa, three days later; in January 1965, there was the transfer of documents; on February 2, Father Villa accepted certain restrictive conditions on vocations coming from abroad; on February 4, Msgr. Morstabilini assured Msgr. Bosio that the document of approval was “safe;” on February 7, Msgr. Morstabilini, on a visit to the parish in which the Institute of Father Villa was located, avoided the honor of his visit; on May 18, Msgr. Bosio, after an interview with Msgr. Morstabilini, assured Father Villa that the Decree of Approval was approaching.
But on July 1, 1965, Father Villa received a letter from the Curia of Brescia informing him of the Episcopal Delegate’s negative opinion in regard to the Commission’s approval of the Institute. Faced with such hostility and duplicity, Father Villa communicated to Msgr. Bosio his intention to incardinate in another diocese. His Bishop, so terribly sorry, replied: «No, no, don’t do it, stay here for my sake!»
But this duplicity in the way of acting, forced the so patient and kind. Msgr. Bosio to ACT!
«Enough! – he said to Father Villa after all I am your Bishop. If they do not understand my gentleness and charity, I will go to Rome, and I will write to you.»
On December 4, 1965, Msgr. Bosio wrote to Father Villa: «Dear Father Villa, you can tell your daughters that the Immaculate has heard our prayers. As, in Brescia, we could not conclude anything, I visited Card. Pietro Palazzini … » The letter ended thus: «… because we don’t have, here in Rome, the stamps of the Curia of Brescia, you can still celebrate the “founding day” on the feast of Immaculate Conception. I will send the “Document” as soon as possible.» On December 8, 1965, Bishop Bosio sent to Father Villa the “Decree” for the canonical foundation of his “Instituto Operaie di Maria Immacolata.” On May 20, 1967, the Institute was moved to the city, on the street, Galileo Galilei, 121, Brescia, where it still resides to this day.
Msgr. Giambattista Bosio, however, died a few days later, on May 25, 1967.
Father Villa was not aware of any illness or other health problem that could suggest an imminent death of his Bishop. Only a few weeks before his death, the same Bishop Bosio, told him: «When I retire, I want to come live with you in your Institute.» The same Sisters of the Institute were thrilled at the thought of having a character with them so famous and important. When Bishop Bosio died, Father Villa was abroad. On his return, he immediately went to Chieti to pray at his tomb.
The new Bishop of Chieti, and therefore the Superior of Father Villa, was Msgr. Loris Capovilla, former confidence man of the Bishop of Padua, Msgr. Girolamo Bortignon, who was one of the worst enemies of Padre Pio, former personal secretary of Pope John XXIII and Paul VI’s former personal secretary, from 1963 to 1967. Father Luigi went to see him immediately and had a conversation with the Bishop. However rather than addressing the issue of his incardination, he spoke with him for over an hour, trying to convince him not to write any more articles against communism, because – he said – Soviet communism will win and we must come to terms with Moscow!
With the death of Msgr. Bosio, Father Villa found himself caught in a vise: on the one hand, the former personal secretary of Pope Paul VI, Bishop Capovilla; on the other, the Montinian Bishop of Brescia, Msgr. Morstabilini.
Archbishop Capovilla asked Father Villa to incardinate in Brescia, while Msgr. Morstabilini insisted that Father Villa remain incardinated in Chieti and continue his work in Brescia, while reconfirming his trust, respect and kindness, and then advised him to “let time solve the problem.” On February 4, 1968, in a letter to the Vicar General of Brescia, Msgr. Pietro Gazzoli, Father Villa complained about the “meager understanding and honesty” and the dual mode of action of Msgr. Morstabilini, and reported two documents that show his bad faith:
1. A letter of Msgr. Morstabilini to Msgr. Bosio (written after the decree of approval from Rome on December 8, 1965) in which he apologized for not having given him such a “Decree” because this was his intention. He blamed the Commission of the Curia for having prevented it.
2. Another letter of Msgr. Morstabilini to a parish from Bergamo, in which, he, instead, said the exact opposite: while recognizing that Father Villa had received a Decree of Approval for his Institute, he said, though, that if it was up to him, this Decree would have never been granted.
On September 3, 1968, Father Villa received an “ultimatum” from the Vicar General of Chieti, Msgr. F. Marinis, to be incardinated in Brescia, within the end of the year. On December 15, 1968, Father Villa wrote a letter to Card. Pietro Palazzini informing him of all these maneuvers which were aimed to “undermine” the Institute, that had recently been founded.
These are only the primary examples of the “modus operandi” of Father Villa’s enemies: enemies who have never faced him fairly and in an open field, but always acting from behind, with duplicity, hitting him with every means, including, as we shall see, the assassination attempts.
Archbishop Loris Capovilla
had been personal secretary of John XXIII and of Paul VI until 1967. When he was made Bishop of Chieti, after the death of Msgr. Bosio, he became the direct Superior of Father Villa.
An attitude of Paul VI
which shows his impatience when he was contradicted.
Beginning of “The Way of the Cross”
The era of being well-received in Vatican circles, during the last period of the Pius XII’s reign, had vanished, and now, the isolation and persecution had begun.
The relationship of seeming predilection with Pius XII, suddenly, turned into one of initiating a lethal policy: «Ignore him and make him ignored!»
Here are two facts that illustrate these two different attitudes:
One day, Father Villa sought and immediately obtained an audience with the Angelic Pope Pius XII. This took place in a palatial room, crowded with people. Pope Pius XII asked for Fr. Villa. Father Villa came forth and after a brief exchange of words, Pius XII took his hands in his and hugged him in front of everyone, as if to signify his predilection for this priest to whom, in secret, He had given a tremendous mandate that had never before been entrusted to any other priest.
Indeed, it was much different, years later, in regards to the meeting between Father Villa and Paul VI. On July 14, 1971, one of his religious of the “Istituto Operaie di Maria Immacolata,” Sister Natalina Ghirardelli, was received in “private audience” by Paul VI. The Pope had wanted to congratulate her for the portrait that the Sister (a portrait painter) had made of him, and had been offered to the Pope, as a gift on the 50th anniversary of his priesthood (1970). Father Villa accompanied Sister Natalina, to Rome as her Father Superior.
Upon entering the reception room, Father Villa noted that Pope Paul VI was sitting in the center of the room. Father Villa then noticed that the Pope immediately looked at his Sister Natalina, the portrait painter, with enamored eyes that never left their gaze, squeezing and holding her hands throughout the entire time of the audience. Father Villa, who was standing next to the Nun, was never given so much as a glance by Paul VI, even for a moment. At the gesture of Father Villa offering some of his books to the Pope, Paul VI, again without looking at him, gestured with his left hand to his secretary, Msgr. Pasquale Macchi, who came and took the books, leaving Fr. Villa in silence – not able to utter a word. At the end of the interview, Paul VI blessed the Nun and gave her a Rosary, and then gave the Rosary pouch to Father Villa, but still without looking at him. And he continued to ignore him even when he and his Sister Natalina walked toward the exit.
At that occasion, Father Luigi understood that this inconceivable gesture of Paul VI to him, was a signal of the beginning of his “Way of the Cross.” For this is what exactly happened!
The Magazine “Chiesa viva”
To fight the battle that Padre Pio had given him, Father Villa needed a Magazine, but one that was free from ecclesiastical pressures or suppressions.
Msgr. Bosio suggested that he should join the Order of Journalists and found his own Magazine, so that the ecclesiastical authorities could not, somehow, cause it to fail. Father Villa, then, joined the National Association of Journalists, taking the Card number 0055992. At that time, to his credit, he had about thirty publications (theological, ascetic, literary, and political) and over a thousand “articles” have already been published in magazines and newspapers.
In 1971, Fr. Villa founded his Review “Chiesa viva,” with correspondents and collaborators in all continents. The first issues were released on the date September, 1971. A few months later, in Vienna, on December 14, 1971, Father Luigi had a personal encounter with Card. Joseph Mindszenty who, after having been humiliated and degraded by Paul VI, for not accepting to reach out to Communism, left Rome. The Cardinal read the entire first issue of “Chiesa viva” and was so enthusiastic that he put his signature on the copy he had read. At the end of the meeting, after two and a half hours of a passionate and enlightening interview, he told Father Villa: «Believe me, Paul VI delivered entire Christian Countries into the hands of Communism … »
Cardinal Martyr Joseph Mindszenty,
degraded by Pope Paul VI because he didn’t want to reach out to Communism, left Rome for Vienna, where he had a meeting with Father Villa.
On September 24, 1971, “il Messaggero Abruzzo” carried an article entitled: “The Archbishop (Msgr. Capovilla) retires.” Approximately one hundred million liras had disappeared from the coffers of the diocese and Msgr. Capovilla had publicly suggested this was the fault of the previous Bishop, Msgr. Giambattista Bosio. Soon afterward, the Prefect and the Chief of Police communicated with Paul VI, saying that, if Msgr. Capovilla was not removed from the diocese of Chieti within three days, they would have to indict him and put him in jail. Thus, Msgr. Capovilla was transferred to Loreto.
But the war against Father Villa continued.
It was the Mason Pro-Secretary of State, Msgr. Giovanni Benelli who officially coined the new strategy of war against Father Villa. In meetings with his staff, speaking of Father Luigi, Msgr. Benelli would say: «We need to silence that Father Villa!» But when someone objected: «Your Eminence! Rather, we must prove him wrong.» The Cardinal, irritated, replied: «Well, then ignore him and make him ignored!»
But this was not enough, for the voice of Father Villa was his magazine “Chiesa viva” and this “voice” had to be silenced.
If the magazine was not immediately frontally attacked, it had to do with the fact that the Deputy Director of “Chiesa viva” was the famous German philosopher and converted Jew, Prof. Dietrich von Hildebrand, whom Paul VI knew, but also feared. Then, the war began with the theological-collaborators that were active with Father Villa and his “Chiesa viva.”
Archbishop Benelli wrote a letter to each of them ordering to cease working with Father Luigi. Father Villa learned of this action of the Holy See, just because one of his aides immediately informed him of this order received from the top. Thus, the scorched earth around “Chiesa viva” was created!
The enemies of Father Villa, with the complicity of the kind of clergy who prefers a quiet life, that is, avoiding the hassles of not quickly falling in “line to their way of thinking” that is “suggested” or “imposed” from the top, began another course of action: slandering.
The first issue of “Chiesa viva”,
released September, 1971, read and signed with approval by Cardinal Joseph Mindszenty.
Dietrich von Hildebrand was born in Florence in 1889 and graduated in philosophy in 1912. He converted to Catholicism in 1914. He was a university professor in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France and the United States. He accepted the position of Deputy Director of “Chiesa viva,” from 1971 until his death on January 25, 1977.
So, Father Villa became: “lazy,” “crazy,” “fascist,” “anti-Semite,” “outside the Church,” “heretic,” “priest of extreme conservative tendencies and pre-conciliar,” “a destroyer of Charity opening the way for defamation,” “spewer of arrogance as he believes he is the proud bearer of the truth” … and most recently, “author of libel,” and “worthy of any punitive measures,” which “were not carried out so as not to humiliate a ninety two year old priest.”
Then, “late night telephone calls” were made which contained insults, slanders, profanity, and threats to demoralize Chiesa viva’s editor! This went on for a long time! Despite all of this, “Chiesa viva,” continued to live!
Some assassination attempts
To silence a priest like Father Villa, however, there is only one sure way: physical elimination. In fact, in his life there have been seven assassination attempts. I will mention three, briefly.
Father Villa was returning from Rome to Brescia by car. Shortly before the city of Arezzo, the road on the right bordered a sheer drop of at least 100 meters. In that stretch, he realized he was being followed by a car that, then, came along side, forcing him, little by little, to the edge of the roadside. What to do? Father Villa, now saw death in front of him. At that moment, however, a police car drove past. Father Villa sounded his horn to call him back, but the sideswiping car sped away and disappeared. The Lord had saved him from certain death! Father Villa mentioned this incident with Card. Palazzini, in the presence of Professor Luigi Gedda, who stated: «So, we are at war.»
Father Villa was traveling by car, to visit his priest friend, Father Berni, pastor of Corlanzone at Lonigo (Vicenza). He left the highway and was driving on the road that would lead to its destination. Suddenly, his limbs, hands and legs, became immobile and he felt paralyzed. Who had given him narcotics?
At a bend in the road, Father Villa, with his eyes wide open, saw the car going straight into a field that bordered a canal, 6-7 meters wide and two meters deep, filled with plenty of water and a lot of mud. He saw everything as in a dream, without being able to move. His legs and arms remained paralyzed. Now, the car continued to race and was just a few meters from the canal … now only a few inches from the edge, suddenly, the car’s engine abruptly stopped. It was a great miracle!
A few seconds more and he would have fallen into the canal and disappeared at the bottom, with his car as his coffin.
With the sudden stopping of the car, Father Villa recovered and got out of the car. He found himself surrounded by a crowd and a policeman asking if he should take him to hospital. Father Villa refused; he climbed into the car and drove off.
After several months, Father Villa paid a visit to a priest “friend,” and after having finished lunch with a cup of coffee, he came home. During the trip, however, he began to feel sick. Arriving home, he was in such a state that his doctor was immediately called. The diagnosis was “poisoning”. The doctor said: «Did they give you a poisoned coffee?» However, over the next several days, the doctor managed to pull Father Villa out of the danger of death. After several years of accompanying Father Villa on visits to his high-ranking friends and having acquired a deep knowledge on the problem of Masonic infiltration in the Church, I attended a meeting on the issue of the “List of Pecorelli” which was published by “Chiesa viva” just a few months before the attempted poisoning.
I heard one of them recalling the words of Card. Silvio Oddi about this “List.” The Cardinal said: «This is a partisan list.» The other, however, said: «The “List of Pecorelli” is the list of all the men of Card. Casaroli,» and added: «Card. Casaroli is the head of four Masonic Lodges in the Vatican.» Then followed a sentence that made me understand the true meaning of the publication of the “List” by the lawyer Mino Pecorelli, himself, a member of the P2 Lodge and publisher of “OP” (Osservatore Politico), who had published the “List,” September 12, 1978. One of the two parties said: «The “List of Pecorelli” had been published by Freemasonry, itself, to stop Cardinal Casaroli’s rise to the papacy». In fact, the discussion continued with the consideration that Card. Casaroli was so powerful in the Vatican that only Freemasonry could have stopped him, if they had not chosen him as Pope.

«… Father Esposito
informs us that among the protagonists of the bilateral dialogues between representatives of the Church and Masonry, which took place between 1966 and 1977, there was the Salesian, Don Vincenzo Miano, Secretary of the “Secretariat for non-believers”
and author of a book entitled: “The Secretariat for Non-believers and Freemasonry”.
Father Esposito reports that Don Miano
participated in all these dialogues “and then explaining the positions gained to the Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and just like Paul VI, who was following and encouraging these meetings”».
During the Pontificate of John Paul II, “Chiesa viva”
denounced the membership of Card. Casaroli
to Freemasonry, a Prelate showed this evidence to John Paul II, the Pope said: «I know, I know, but I do not know who to put in his place!»

Despite the publication of the
“List of Pecorelli” in 1978, John Paul II
made “Cardinals” of Msgr. Fiorenzo Angelini
and Msgr. Virgilio Noè, who both appear in the Masonic “List.”

Benelli, Casaroli, Ruini
Msgr. Giovanni Benelli was, first, Pro-Secretary of State, then, in 1977, he became the Bishop of Florence, and soon after, he was made Cardinal. After the death of Paul VI, he tried to be elected Pope, but instead Card. Siri was elected, who, because of the terrible threats made by the same Card. Benelli, had to surrender. And so, as a compromise, Card. Luciani was elected, under the name John Paul I.
But after 33 days of his reign, John Paul I was murdered. It was the same Father Villa who asked Card. Palazzini to have an autopsy made of the Pope, and to be more convincing, he gathered the Press in Rome, hinting at possibility of murder. Card. Palazzini, then, arranged three autopsies, which were called “medical examinations.” The results of all three was: “Assassinated!” The publication of the “List of Pecorelli” cut short the candidacy of Card. Casaroli. After the death of Luciani [John Paul I], there was another clash between Siri and Benelli, however, the real predestined and favorite of Freemasonry, Card. Karol Woytjla was elected.
With the death of Card. Giovanni Benelli, in 1982, Card. Agostino Casaroli became the most powerful man in the Vatican.
But “Chiesa viva” still had a very valiant and courageous staff, because, besides those who abandoned the battle, there were also people who, despite their high position in the Vatican, were outspoken collaborators of Father Villa’s Review and his true defenders.
John Paul I was murdered after 33 days of his pontificate. It was Father Villa who ordered Card. Palazzini to conduct an autopsy. Three autopsies were conducted, which were called “medical examinations” and they all ended up with the verdict:
Msgr. Nicolino Sarale, of the Secretary of State, was the most trusted friend of Father Villa and
his “sentinel” in the Vatican.
He died in a strange way on Sept. 27, 1995.
One of them was Msgr. Nicolino Sarale, who worked in the Secretariat of State office from 1978 to 1995, the year of his death. Msgr. Sarale wrote books and four complete [liturgical] cycles of Homilies for priests for “Chiesa viva”. In the last years of his life, he had a column in “Osservatore Romano,” in which he denounced the growing crisis within the Church. Msgr. Sarale was not only a collaborator, but also the “sentinel” of Father Villa in the office of Secretary of State, He wrote long letters to him on sensitive issues and hot topics of the Church. He was a bright and courageous man: every month he would receive 50 copies of “Chiesa viva” which he distributed within the Secretary of State department. He had the courage to defend Father Villa in front of senior Prelates, and even in front of the Pope.
Some years after the death of this dear friend of Father Luigi, I began putting together various phrases that I had heard from Father and read in newspaper articles, I managed to get an idea about the strange death of Msgr. Sarale, on Sept. 27, 1995.
One day, Father Villa told me about his visits to Msgr. Sarale, who, speaking of his health, talked about his ailment in his knee and some injections that the doctor was giving to him. Father Luigi obtained the envelope of the packaging of these injections from Msgr. Sarale and showed them to his doctor, who, after associating the disease with the injections given to Msgr. Sarale said: «But these injections cause cancer!» In fact, Msgr. Sarale died following an operation that was necessary to save him from cancer, which had developed in the stomach, with an amazing speed.
After the death of Msgr. Sarale, the newspapers broke with the news of the scandal of John Paul II’s doctor, who – they said – had managed to reach that position without any entrance examinations, and after the scandal, he vanished. Was he the same doctor who had given the injections to Msgr. Nicolino Sarale?
The year, 1990, at the scene of the Vatican, saw the withdrawal of the Card. Casaroli as Secretary of State, the decline of the Card. Ugo Poletti, President of the Italian Episcopal Conference (CEI) and Vicar of His Holiness, and the simultaneous rise of Msgr. Camillo Ruini.
The Cardinals Casaroli and Poletti, were both Masons, pointed out in the “List of Pecorelli” with an initiation date, Serial number and Acronym. Card. Casaroli was the standard bearer of the pro-Communist policy of Paul VI called “Ostpolitik” and from his post as Secretary of State, next to John Paul II, was the most powerful man in the Vatican, who was second only to Card. Ugo Poletti, who had a stellar career, with Paul VI, for a very special reason.
When he became Archbishop of Milan, Msgr. Montini decided to close and move the “The People of Italy,” a well-established newspaper, published by the Diocese of Novara. The Bishop of Novara, Msgr. Gilla Vincenzo Gremigni, protested that this act was not under the jurisdiction of Archbishop Montini. In early January, 1963, only six months before his election to the papacy, Montini sent a letter to the Archbishop of Novara of such hard content, reading it, Msgr. Gremigni had a heart attack and died. The letter was found by Msgr. Ugo Poletti, who kept it for himself.
When Montini became Pope, the ghost of Archbishop Gremigni followed him in the person of Msgr. Poletti. In 1967, the Italian press received information that the death of Archbishop Gremigni had to do with the new Pope.
Soon after, Msgr. Poletti had a series of promotional “miracles” by Pope Paul VI: Bishop of Spoleto (1967), Vice Regent of Rome, who is the closest collaborator of Card. Angelo Dell’Acqua (State Secretary and Vicar of the Pope) (1969), Cardinal (1973), Vicar of the Pope (1973), President of The Italian Conference of Bishops (CEI) (1985).
Msgr. Ugo Poletti,
Vicar General of the bishop of Novara,
in 1967 began a strange and amazing career, linked to the death of his bishop,
caused by Msgr. Montini, Archbishop of Milan.
In 1991, Msgr. Camillo Ruini
became “Vicar of His Holiness“, “Cardinal”
and “President of CEI”.
He had become the most powerful man in the Vatican!
In 1986, Msgr. Camillo Ruini, had become the darling of the Card. Poletti as his Secretary of the CEI, but a few years later, in 1991, Msgr. Ruini appeared at the top of Vatican power. In quick succession, he was appointed: Cardinal, Vicar of the Pope and President of CEI, maintaining the latter two titles for many and, perhaps, too many years.
In 1991, Cardinal Camillo Ruini, had become the most powerful man in the Vatican.
The same year, 1991, Father Villa began publishing in “Chiesa viva,” a long series of articles against the Neo Catechumenal movement. Then, on May 13, 2000, these were all collected and published in a book entitled: “Heresies in the Neo-Catechumenal Doctrine” that denounced the 18 heresies of the Movement directed by Francis Argüello, known as “Kiko,” and his partner, a former nun named Carmen Hernandez.
To be sure, Card. Ruini didn’t like these attacks, since, he, himself, was the official protector of this heretical movement.
More death threats … and a “trial”
In the issue N° 248 of “Chiesa viva” of February, 1994, Father Villa published an article titled “PDS Scopriamo le carte” (P.D.S. – Leftist Democratic Party: Let’s Lay the Cards on the Table), of which I was co-author. It was an attack on Communism and denunciation of its Masonic origins. It rather proved that Communism is nothing but a political version of the secret program of the Satanic Order of the Bavarian Illuminati to destroy the Catholic Church and Christian civilization. With this article, Father Villa wanted to make pamphlets to distribute, covering entire cities of Italy.
And so we did.
On February 26, 1994, we distributed the pamphlets in the Piedmont town of Ivrea. The problem was that, in the text, the data of the “List of Pecorelli” that listed some Prelates belonging to Freemasonry, included the Bishop of Ivrea, Msgr. Luigi Bettazzi. Flying into a rage, because of the distribution in his diocese, Msgr. Bettazzi immediately declared to the press that he would sue the authors of the dossier. Then, he changed his mind and sued only Father Luigi Villa.
Brescia was in a turmoil. Many priests thought that, at last, it was time to silence Father Villa who, in addition to “insulting” bishops such as Bettazzi, just as in recent issues of “Chiesa viva” N° 246 and N° 247, he had also published a highly critical article on the interview of the Archbishop of Milan, Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini, which had appeared in “The Sunday Times” on April 26, 1993.
Many were anxious and awaiting the moment when, finally, “justice” would be meted out! The trial date was set for January 31, 1995, at the Court of Brescia. As if that were not enough, in the issues of “Chiesa viva” N° 254 and N° 255, of September and October 1994, Father Villa published another critical article on a new interview that Card. Martini made to “Le Monde,” published January 4, 1994.
In Brescia, the atmosphere was hot and buzzing. The same Msgr. Bettazzi was stoking the fire and, on November 30, 1994, wrote a letter to Father Villa in harsh tones, called for a “proper and adequate reparation for compensation of damages,” and in which he claimed to be sorry to “have to continue an unfortunate dispute …”
The fateful day came on Jan. 31, but nothing happened! The priests of Brescia were dumbfounded and could not understand how a process so eagerly awaited and for so long taken for granted by the press, could have had an outcome so unpredictable and disappointing.
But I remember that towards the end of 1994, Fr. Villa asked me to type a letter addressed to the Secretary of State, Card. Angelo Sodano, in which he said that he was not going to become a victim and that he would make known the names of all the Cardinals …
Soon after, Fr. Villa’s lawyer was contacted by the lawyer of Msgr. Bettazzi because the Bishop of Ivrea desired to be received by Father Villa. The meeting took place in early January. Msgr. Bettazzi, just walked into the office of Fr. Villa, asked if Father Villa would allow him to withdraw the complaint. The interview lasted over an hour.
Later, in a letter dated January 9, 1995, Msgr. Bettazzi thanked Father Villa for receiving him and said that he “realized his good faith” adding the phrase: «… I am agreeable to consider immediately what I wanted to do from the very beginning, that is to withdraw the complaint» and ended the letter with the words: «And … Arrivederci, in Heaven, you will finally discover that, among my faults, there absolutely will not be that one of belonging to Freemasonry.»
But Father Villa was not in Paradise yet. On March 28, 1995, he wrote a letter to the Secretary of State, Card. Angelo Sodano, demanding the removal of Msgr. Bettazzi from the diocese of Ivrea, listing 11 serious reasons and including the evidence of the Bishop of Ivrea’s membership into Freemasonry. He also proved that the work of Msgr. Bettazzi, as President of Pax Christi International, had the aim of realizing the satanic plan, today called “New Age,” of destroying the Catholic Church and Christian civilization.
Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini,
Archbishop of Milan
The cover of the dossier, “PDS: Scopriamo le carte,”
widely distributed in many cities in northern Italy.
I always wondered if this “mock trial” of Msgr. Bettazzi had something to do with the articles published by Father Villa on the interviews of Card. Martini, but the only item worth mentioning is I remember that one day Father Villa showed me a book in which there was written that if Cardinal Martini had become Pope, his Secretary of State, in all probability, would have been Msgr. Luigi Bettazzi.
Then, for months, entire cities of Italy were covered with the pamphlet “PDS: Scopriamo le Carte,” but the effects of these distributions were death threats.
I got a postcard that had a “Five-pointed Star” on it with a death threat; the postcard was followed by other threats that reached me by phone and by fax.
At that time, the articles published by “Chiesa viva” on the interviews of Card. Martini in “The Sunday Times” and “Le Monde” were followed by relating dossiers and extensive distribution.
In January, 1996, another critical article and dossier was published on Card. Martini’s book: “Israele radice santa” (Israel’s holy root), in which the Cardinal encouraged Catholics to read the Talmud.
On December 19, 1998, Msgr. Bruno Foresti, was succeeded by Msgr. Giulio Sanguineti, former Bishop of La Spezia-Sarzana, and before that, Bishop of Savona.
Msgr. Sanguineti, still very young, was appointed Vicar General by his Bishop of Chiavari, Msgr. Luigi Maverna whose name appears in the “List of Pecorelli,” with Initiation date: 3/6/1968, Serial number: 441/c, and Acronym: LUMA.
The Ruinian Msgr. Giulio Sanguineti,
Bishop of Brescia from 1998 to 2007
Book cover: “Si speieghi, Eminenza!”
(Explain Yourself, Eminence!) published in 2000
On February 6, 2000, Father Villa published the book: “Si spieghi Eminenza!” (Explain yourself, Eminence!) cornering the Archbishop of Milan, Cardinal Martini, who, to counter the attack, involved the Bishop of Brescia, Msgr. Sanguineti, in a misguided attempt of defense. The Bishop wrote a personal letter dated March 7, 2000 to the Cardinal, against Father Villa.
Without proving the existence of even minor errors in the book, the letter denigrated Father Villa for his writings on Paul VI and used generic and offensive phrases such as: “smear campaigns,” “one-sided and radicalized interpretations,” “absolutely uncivil procedures,” “wound of charity,” “extremely conservative and pre-conciliar tendencies” … At the end, Msgr. Sanguineti promised the Cardinal:
«… We are committed to stemming as much as possible and fighting with the allowed means this resurgence of arrogance and proud presumption of being holders of the truth.»
We never knew if the letter was to remain confidential. The Cardinal published the letter in the diocesan bulletin, making it publicly available to the clergy of Milan.
Then, Msgr. Sanguineti asked for a personal meeting with Father Villa. During this interview, on the subject of Masonic infiltration in the Church, he also made reference to the Bishop, Msgr. Sanguineti snapped: «But do you believe that I am a Mason?» «Yes, certainly.» Said Father Villa, presenting, as a determinant, the fact that he was made Vicar General by Mason Msgr. Maverna (who was later expelled from his diocese due to one of Fr. Villa’s intervention). It was also based on the fact that Father Villa had heard this directly from an authoritative source in the Masonic field. The Bishop did not react, but went into another room to cool off, and came back, then composed. However, Father Villa received a copy of the letter written by the Bishop of Brescia, from a graduate of Milan, who also informed him about the wide distribution in that diocese. This letter deserved a proper “Response,” accompanied with four articles of Father Villa, from a famous Jesuit, a prominent lawyer of International Law and from an Attorney General at the Court of Cassazione. The “Response” was published in “Chiesa viva” and also printed as a dossier.
Cover of the dossier: “Response to a letter from the Bishop of Brescia,”

By now, the coup de grace could no longer be delayed.
In October 2000, Father Villa sent to the top of the Church and the Jesuit Order an envelope, containing documents relating to Card. Carlo Maria Martini, of such gravity that this ended the career of the Cardinal in Milan.
The documents were accompanied by a letter signed by Father Villa and myself, in which recipients were advised that if anything happened to the family of the person who had provided testimony and documents, or to my family, the contents of the envelope, already in the hands of dozens of trusted people, would be handed over to the Judiciary and the Police, and the first to be investigated would be Card. Carlo Maria Martini.
At the time, Msgr. Sanguineti did not only seem accommodating towards Card. Martini, but also in respect to his “Responsible Master,” Card. Camillo Ruini.
There were many articles written in “Chiesa viva” against the heretical movement of Neo-Catechumenal, whose official patron was Card. Camillo Ruini, the most powerful man in the Vatican.
After his first year as Bishop of Brescia, Msgr. Sanguinetti had an official meeting, on December 19, 1999, at the Sport Palace of San Filippo, in the city of Brescia, with the Neo-Catechumenal communities of the Diocese of Lombardy, Verona, Piacenza and Fidenza, where he had words of encouragement for this heretical movement.
A few months later, on May 13, 2000, Father Villa published the book entitled: “Heresies in the Neo-Catechumenal Doctrine,” containing 18 heresies of the most secret Catechism of Kiko, consisting of 373 pages.
Msgr. Sanguineti, then, went on to perform other “itinerant” tasks that took him to South America.
In the diocese of Brescia, Msgr. Sanguineti will be remembered for another of one of his works. Three weeks before being replaced as Bishop of Brescia, on September 23, 2007, he consecrated the first church of the third millennium of the diocese. The church, which turned out to be a Satanic-Masonic Temple, is located in a wonderful setting at the foot of the hill of Padergnone, a hamlet of Rodengo Saiano (Brescia). It is known for the strange spiral shape of the outer wall of stone that surrounds it.

of this heretical movement, whose official patron is Cardinal Camillo Ruini!
Paul VI beatified?
Freemasonry wanted her man Paul VI on the altars. Part of the plan was to put the two Popes, John XXIII and Paul VI, on the altars in order to prove the nature of Vatican II was indeed “supernatural.”
During the course of the proceedings of the XXXV Assembly of the Italian Bishops Cardinal Ruini announced the decision to introduce the “cause of beatification” of Paul VI before the Pope and the Bishops.
On May 13, 1992, Card. Ruini, president of the CEI and the Vicar of the Pope for Rome, issued an edict which, among other things, reads: «We invite all individual believers to communicate directly or submit to the diocesan tribunal of the Vicariate of Rome any “news” from which we can argue to some extent against the reputation of sanctity of the said “Servant of God”.»
But Father Villa wanted to see things more clearly. So on May 25, 1992, he telephoned Secretary of State, Msgr. Nicolino Sarale, the faithful friend and collaborator of “Chiesa viva,” asking about this decision of Card. Ruini to open the “beatification” of Paul VI.
Well, Msgr. Sarale told Father Villa that this decision was a “forced coup” by Card. Ruini, because most of the Italian Bishops would have never wanted it!
The “cause of beatification” continued to proceed until the year 1997. Father Villa was aware of the fact that Card. Pietro Palazzini had sent a letter to the Postulator for the “cause of beatification” of Paul VI that contained three names of the last homosexual lovers of Paul VI.
Cardinal Pietro Palazzini was an authority in this field, because the Cardinal held two binders of documents that demonstrated, unequivocally, the impure and unnatural vice of Paul VI.
Then, Father Villa wrote a letter to the Postulator, referring to what he had known from Card. Palazzini.
The book “Paul VI beatified?” was released in February, 1998. I took on the task of organizing the shipment of the first 5,000 copies.
Pope, Cardinals, Bishops and thousands of Italian Priests were given a copy of this book simultaneously. From Rome, someone told us that the Vicar of the Pope, Cardinal Ruini, was furious. He wondered who had financed the printing and mailing of these books, free of charge, to thousands of members of the Italian Clergy. When Father Villa told me about this telephone call, smiling, he said: «We should respond to the Vicar of His Holiness, that the lenders are three Persons and their names are: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.»
The reactions to the book were violent, and as a result, I, as the sender, had my share of this irrational and furious reaction.
We even received several copies of the book with all the pages torn out and containing phrases and epithets, written in black marker, to embarrass even the wicked and most hardened. I kept some of these copies, while the most vulgar, Father Villa threw out. The diocese of Brescia was in turmoil. The Bishop, Msgr. Bruno Foresti, promised the diocesan clergy that a book to refute that of Father Villa would be written.
After more than twelve years, those promises and commitments haven’t even appeared on the horizon! The fair battle fought openly does not seem to be an advantageous method of combating a priest like Father Luigi Villa!
The result of the book was clear to everyone: it had blocked the “beatification cause” of Paul VI. No one was able to refute the volume, that is, the avalanche of “facts,” “quotations,” “documents” and “pictures” shown in the book, which did justice to a Pope who had committed perjury, by putting into place, during his pontificate, just the opposite of what he, himself, had promised to accomplish with a solemn oath on the day of his coronation.
The Montinian Msgr. Bruno Foresti,
Bishop of Brescia from 1983 to 1998
The book “Paul VI beatified?”
was the natural consequence of the refusal by the Postulator of the “beatification cause” of Paul VI to take into due consideration the “fact” concerning the impure and unnatural vice of Paul VI
John Paul II in Brescia
But there were those who did not accept the surrender!
Without considering the merits of the arguments raised by Father Villa, the only solution was to place all the weight of papal authority in their camp! Only a visit of the Pope to Brescia could raise the fate of the “beatification cause” of Paul VI. And so, the visit of Pope John Paul II in Brescia, from September 19-20, 1998 was announced. The occasion was the beatification of Giuseppe Tovini from Brescia, which, however, was associated with the “beatification cause” of Paul VI.
But Fr. Villa didn’t lose heart. On August 15, 1998, he wrote a long letter to Secretary of State, Card. Angelo Sodano, explicitly asking to cancel the visit of the Pope to Brescia. The reason was that the spread of the book
“Paul VI beatified?” had been achieved and that he had received enthusiastic letters from influential people in the judicial and cultural world. But the most serious reason was the damage that the Church would suffer from an uncaring attitude of a Pope, regarding the disturbing facts and given the harsh reality described and demonstrated in the book of Fr. Villa. In the letter, Father Villa acknowledged the strong tone of his book, and the difficulties of a clergy not accustomed to this language. However, he explained that this was only the “violence of love” for the Church and that this “violence” was a duty when the high values of the Faith were at stake: «One who really loves the Church can’t fail to speak out when one sees it in disarray. Otherwise, it would be cowardice to prefer silence to protest! How cowardly is one who lacks the courage and sensitivity to support those who fight on the front line, the “good fight” for the Faith!
My book, therefore, is not advisable for those who have little love for the Truth and who are sickened by superficiality, and for those who deceive themselves into being content behind the screen of the misconception: “Let’s love each other.”
Mine, then, was only the “courage” of those who feel free (“The truth shall make you free” John 8, 32) to be truly responsible. Sure, it’s a tough job. Today, it takes courage! Yet, it is essential, although there is always a risk you have to take! If Christ wouldn’t have had the “courage” to speak out and whip His enemies (Pharisees, Scribes, Teachers of the law, the High Priests!) He, too, could have died, [comfortably] in a bed [without suffering His Crucifixion].»
Then he continued: «Your Eminence! Jesus rebuked them, then, for their grave infidelity, at the pastoral level. And he scolded them for their own harmful “tolerance” toward certain disrupters of the faith, leaving them to operate unhindered, so they share the responsibility for those errors that led the faithful astray. Now, isn’t this the story of Paul VI? Perchance, did not Paul VI give free reign to all the progressives, more or less heretical, allowing them to uproot the Faith from Its foundation? And so, the Church today appears to have been scorched; behind Her are only the traces of Her Christian civilization! Therefore, with this book, the undersigned, attempted to remove the mask to look in the mirror of truth! This is because no one has the right to close his eyes to what happened in the Church through the negligence of a Pope who even now wants to raise him to the Altars.» And again: «For this, Your Eminence, I repeat: How could the Pope (John Paul II) still make a defense, even if rhetorically-academic, of Paul VI, after what I wrote and “documented” on him, and after the “letter” that I sent to all the Italian Episcopate – a month ago! – In which I brought back the “photo of Paul VI” with his left hand which shows well-marked, the “five-pointed star”, or “Masonic Pentalpha,” as it had been carved on the “first panel” of the original, which appeared on the “Bronze door” of St. Peter’s Basilica, in Rome, and also appeared as shown on the Special Insert of the “Osservatore Romano” of September 25, 1977?» The letter ended with these words: «In the firm and supernatural hope that my dutiful request is graciously accepted by Your Eminence, for the love I bear for the Holy Church, my Mother, please accept also my priestly respect in C. J. et M. [in Christ Jesus and Mary].»
But the request was not accepted and John Paul II traveled to Brescia to revive the fate of the “cause of beatification” for Paul VI. Then, after a year, in December, 1999, Father Villa published a second book on Paul VI entitled: “Paul VI, a Pope on Trial?” which was simply a continuation of the first book.
This book was also sent to the Pope, cardinals, bishops and part of the Italian clergy.
The reaction this time was much more moderate.
Card. Angelo Sodano, former Secretary of State for John Paul II
The book “Pope Paul VI, a Pope on Trial?”
a continuation of the previous book, “Paul VI beatified?”
was the answer to the attempt by the Vatican to continue the “cause of beatification” of Paul VI with the visit of Pope John Paul II in Brescia, in 1998.
A Masonic memorial to Paul VI
It was not the first time that Freemasonry used the full weight of authority of a Pope to trample on “proven” truths and to impose a forced course, or to overcome the hostility of an entire population.
This happened in 1984 when the personal secretary of Paul VI, Mason Msgr. Pasquale Macchi decided to erect a monument to Pope Paul VI, in the square of the Shrine of Our Lady, Crowned, on the Sacred Mount of Varese (a city 30 Km north of Milan). The people didn’t want to know anything about this monument, but the visit of Pope John Paul II, in 1984, was instrumental in silencing this opposition. The monument, known by the oddity of having a sheep with five legs, was inaugurated on May 24, 1986, in the presence of the Mason Mr. Giulio Andreotti, the Mason Secretary of State Card. Agostino Casaroli and Mason Msgr. Pasquale Macchi, personal Secretary of Paul VI, whose name appears in the “List of Pecorelli” in conjunction with that one of Card. Casaroli.
In November, 2000, I published the book: “A Masonic Monument to Paul VI”, where I showed that, in this sculpture, Freemasonry had praised his “man” Paul VI as the “Supreme Head” of Freemasonry, and as a “Jewish Pope,” and glorified him for his “three acts of Masonic justice,” that is: the betrayal of Christ, of the Church and of the History of Christian nations.
The book of Father Villa, “Paul VI beatified?” was released twelve years after the inauguration of this monument, and ends with this sentence: “A Paul VI, that is, who betrayed Christ, the Church and History.” Freemasonry had “carved” these “betrayals” in this dismal bronze monument, Father Villa, instead, had “carved” them in a theological-historical treatise of 284 pages.
The book “The ‘New Church’ of Paul VI,”
the third book of Father Villa on Paul VI, highlights the main points of the changing Church which continues to completely dismantle all of Tradition – with an almost murderous obsession! – so that it can no longer recover.
Book cover: “A Masonic Monument to Paul VI.”
But the discourse on Paul VI was not concluded yet. So, on January 31, 2003, the 380 page third book of Father Villa: “The ‘New Church’ of Paul VI” was published, and as always sent to the top of the Church and to part of the Italian clergy.
The book was devastating and the reaction was … a deadly silence! The typical “silence” that seals the policy of “putting everything to rest!” But not all were silent.
One day, Father Villa told me: «Last night I received an anonymous phone call. A voice said to me: “When you are dead, we will put Paul VI on the Altars”.» We laughed over it, wondering if this was a manifestation of power, or just the opposite.
The Satanic Temple dedicated to Padre Pio
In October, 1998, Father Villa gave me a page from the magazine “Lu oghi dell’infinito” [“Places of Infinity”] of September, 1998. It reported on a design of the cross, which sculptor, Arnaldo Pomodoro, wanted to construct for the “new church” of Renzo Piano, in San Giovanni Rotondo, and dedicated to Padre Pio. This article was given to Father Villa by a friend who, among other things, pointed out some weird symbols that appeared on the arms of the cross that looked like hammers and trowels. I immediately began to investigate the strange cross.
After about a month, I gave a report to Father Villa: «The 11°, 22° and 33° degrees of Freemasonry of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite are represented on the lower and side arms of this cross. The Masonic apron is symbolized in the central part of the cross and, on the upper arm, Lucifer is represented in different ways.» Then I added: «The significance of these symbols is: the Cult of the Phallus, the Cult of Man and the Cult of Lucifer. This symbolizes the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite Freemasonry, usually represented with two “five-pointed stars,” one with the tip up and the other with the tip down.»
The project management of this “new church” was in the hands of the famous architect, Renzo Piano. However the responsibility of the project was in the hands of the Pontifical Commission for Cultural Heritage of the Church, whose chairman was Msgr. Francesco Marchisano. At the same time, Msgr. Crispino Valenziano, subordinate of Msgr. Marchisano was in charge of the liturgical and theological responsibility of the “new church.”
The dossier: “Una Nomina Scandalo”
(An Appointment Scandal).
He is the one who gave instructions so that “the project would gradually gain more expressiveness.” Msgr. Marchisano was an old acquaintance of Father Villa. In fact, he had already denounced him as a Mason on N° 109 of “Chiesa viva” in June 1981, with all Masonic registration data. His career, however, had continued unabated until his appointment to Vicar General for the State of Vatican City and President of San Pietro Works, conferred to him by Pope John Paul II.
In September, 2002, Father Villa replied to these two new promotions with the dossier: “An Appointment Scandal,” which also reported three letters of Msgr. Marchisano to the Venerable Grand Master of Italian Freemasonry, where, in one of these, he wrote: «Venerable and Illustrious Grand Master, with great joy I received, through F. MAPA (Mons. Pasquale Macchi, Secretary of Pope Paul VI) your delicate task: to quietly organize, throughout the Piedmont and Lombardy, a plan to disrupt the studies and the discipline of seminaries … »
The dossier was distributed by the thousands and certain personalities of the Vatican came to Brescia to buy some packs of these pamphlets from Father Villa; while others, from Rome, confided to him their discomfort and their despair. But it seemed that no one could stop the irresistible rise of this Masonic Prelate.
The only thing missing was his appointment as “Cardinal.” However his name did not appear in the list of eligible candidates of the Consistory, scheduled for October 21, 2003. We thought the reason was the publication and widespread distribution of our dossier “An Appointment Scandal,” which conclusively proved, the Masonic membership of Msgr.
But three days before the Pope was to announce the names of eligible candidates of the Consistory (September 28th, 2003), I was in Father Villa’s office when the phone rang. Father answered the phone, he listened, then put it down and said: «Do you know what I have just been informed of? Msgr. Marchisano will be in the list of Cardinals!»
Three days later, on TV, everyone saw John Paul II reading the list of names of the future Cardinals, when, suddenly, the hand of his personal secretary came up, holding a piece of paper, which he laid on the lectern. The Pope’s apparent irritation produced no results. After a while, he read the name: Msgr. Francesco Marchisano.
On July 1, 2004, the “new church” dedicated to St. Padre Pio in San Giovanni Rotondo, was inaugurated. On February 20, 2006, the Special Edition of “Chiesa viva” 381, entitled: “A ‘new church’ dedicated to St. Padre Pio – Masonic Temple?” was released. This showed the nature of Masonic symbols that were imprinted everywhere in this “church” and the “unitarian idea” that is the glorification of Freemasonry and its “god” Lucifer with horrible insults to Our Lord Jesus Christ and the Most Holy Trinity. The Masonic symbolism of the Tabernacle expresses the substitution of “Jesus the Redeemer” with “Luciferian redeemer” of man, while the symbolism on the stone cross expresses the replacement of “Christ the King of the Universe” with “Lucifer, king of the universe.” But the worst insult is addressed to the Most Holy Trinity for having been driven out and replaced with the blasphemous, satanic and Masonic “Triple Trinity.” For the first time in history, a geometric representation of the Masonic “Triple Trinity,” was published. This is the deepest and most jealously kept secret of Freemasonry!
When Father Villa read the study, he told me that, certainly, the Pope could not ignore it, because the satanic occult meanings of this temple were so severe and disturbing. His silence on such a complaint would have been just inconceivable. But nothing happened!
After two months, however, something finally happened. One Hundred and fifty Prelates including former Secretary of State, Card. Angelo Sodano, went to San Giovanni Rotondo, on the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Padre Pio’s Casa di Sollievo della Sofferenza (House for the Relief of Suffering), and remained there for an entire week (May 1-7, 2006).
As it was reported earlier, by one of them: «Those Prelates, for the entire week, and I know because I also attended the evening and night meetings, have studied your Special Edition on the Satanic Temple dedicated to Padre Pio.» Amazed, I replied: «And with what result?» «They could not refute it.» «And the conclusion?» I pressed. He answered: «They decided to silence everything about it.»
The news, however, was so explosive that some Italian newspapers and magazines published the news of the scandal, but it was missed by all the national press, radio and televisions. The fact didn’t bother us that much, because we were used to this policy of “silencing everything about it all,” but mainly because Our Lord Jesus Christ and the Most Holy Trinity had been horribly insulted, no one could ever pretend to gag these Three Almighty Persons directly involved in this issue.
The Italian Edition of the study on the Satanic Temple was followed by the German, English, French, Spanish and Polish Editions. Slowly, the horror of this Satanic Temple was spreading in Italy and abroad, and the flow of pilgrims, who had never shown appreciation for this strange “new building”, continuously dwindled, with the fearful consequence of the decreasing flow of donations.
The impossibility of being able to refute the study, whose contents were most disturbing and the growing attention from the national and international audience, which grew by the day, imposed a “response,” but without entering into the merits of the arguments raised and proven by our Special Edition.
So far, the obligatory policy of the “Powers that be” had been limited to the strategy: “let’s silence everything about it” … but the meaning of these words, in addition to the blackout of the media, one could assume it to mean something else instead.

Venerable and Illustrious Grand Master,
With great joy I received, through F. MAPA, your delicate task: to quietly organize throughout the Piedmont and Lombardy, a plan to destroy the studies and discipline in the seminaries.
I don’t deny that the task is huge and I need many collaborators, especially among the teaching staff. You should notify me so I can approach them as soon as possible with some study tactics.
I reserve more accurate communications after a meeting and personal interview with MAPA.
Meanwhile, please accept my prayerful greeting. Frama
To Ven. G. Master of the G. O. (delivered by hand)
September 12, 1961
Illustrious and Reverend G. Master,
After having approached and contacted F.F. [Fellow Freemasons] Pelmo and Bifra several times, I returned to MAPA to submit an initial work plan.
He recommends starting with the disintegration of the curriculum, pressing upon our faithful teachers, because with a new updating of topics of pseudo-philosophy and pseudo-theology, they will cast the seed at the students, now thirsty for anything new.
Thus, the disciplinary disruption will be a simple consequence that will result spontaneously, without us having to deal with it: the students will think they did it themselves.
It is therefore essential that you pay these teachers well, of whom you already have the list. I will be a diligent overseer and I will refer everything to you, faithfully.
With the most devoted and friendly greeting. Frama

Illustrious and Reverend G. Master,
In the meeting, last night, F.F. [Fellow Freemasons] Pelmo, Mapa, Bifra, Salma, Buan, Algo and Vino were present, I could conclude that:
First, we should start experiments at some seminaries of Italy, those of Trent and Turin, or that one of Udine where we have a good number of F.F. [Fellow Freemasons];
Secondly, we must spread our concept of freedom and human dignity, in all the seminaries without any hesitation from either of the Superiors, nor by any law. We need a comprehensive printing.
At this point, we need a meeting with all of you to decide how to act and to whom to entrust the various tasks.
With my prayerful greeting. Frama

The Special Issue of “Chiesa viva”
No 381, the Satanic Temple of San Giovanni Rotondo, dedicated to St. Padre Pio, was released February 20, 2006.
The meaning of occult symbols etched everywhere in this “new church” is the glorification of Freemasonry and its “god” Lucifer, with horrible insults to Our Lord Jesus Christ and the Most Holy Trinity. The Masonic symbolism of the Tabernacle expresses the substitution of “Jesus the Redeemer” with “Lucifer redeemer of man”, while that on the stone cross expresses the replacement of “Christ the King” with Lucifer, “king of the universe”. But the worst insult is addressed to the Most Holy Trinity for having been driven out and replaced with the blasphemous and satanic Masonic “Triple Trinity”.
Several months after the publication of the study on the Satanic Temple of Padre Pio, I had to accompany Father Villa to visit a priest “friend,” but due to an unforeseen difficulty, I could not do so, and was replaced by one of our elderly collaborators.
The meeting with the priest was brief. However, it was marked with a perplexing situation for those who were present as the incomprehensible agitation, tension, and strange behavior of the priest “friend,” was so overwhelming that, after he had served biscuits, chocolates and tea, considered “unpleasant” by the only person who drank it, the two guests left.
Father Villa didn’t eat or drink anything, while the only one to do so was the elderly driver.
Getting into the car, Father Luigi immediately, asked the driver to take him to his lawyer friend who lived nearby. A few minutes later, they found themselves sitting in his dining room.
While Father Villa was talking to the lawyer, the driver began to feel strange. His vision was as if he was looking through a shattered and moving glass. Gradually, he was no longer able to move his legs, feet, arms and hands. He breathed deeply, trying to overcome these sensations, but at certain point, they had to lie him down on the sofa, as they watched him anxiously. The driver never lost consciousness, but his strange visual anomalies continued along with paralyzation of the upper and lower limbs. After about fifteen minutes, he felt better, got up and said that he was ready to drive. What would have happened if the two had not visited the lawyer friend right away?
They had to travel several miles on a narrow road, flanked by large trees on both sides, beyond which were on the one hand, a river, on the other, a moat of water. In addition, the road was always busy with traffic of heavy vehicles.
And what would have happened if the driver found himself driving the vehicle on that road, instead of sitting comfortably on a chair, in a room? If two persons, who have a total of more than one hundred sixty years between them, had an accident, the newspapers would have most certainly taken note that some accidents occur to people much younger. Then, who would suspect anyone if it became known that the two “injured” had just come out from a home of a family that had known the old priest for several decades?
Benedict XVI to the Satanic Temple of San Giovanni Rotondo
The heavy pall of the Satanic Temple of San Giovanni Rotondo became, day by day, more and more embarrassing. Unfortunately, as it has happened in the past, when trying to “silence everything,” the only over-abused solution is that one of using the full weight of Authority.
On March 18, 2007, the Secretary of State, Card. Tarcisio Bertone, with a large following of Bishops, went to San Giovanni Rotondo for a celebration in the Satanic Temple.
In the issues of “Chiesa viva” N° 395 and N° 396 of June and July-August 2007, it was reported in an article entitled “Sacrilegious Concelebration in the Masonic Temple in San Giovanni Rotondo, dedicated to St. Padre Pio,” that Father Villa asked to prohibit the religious use of this “Satanic Temple,” displaying the covers of this study, already available in five languages.
But the sacrilegious celebrations continued. Again, “Chiesa viva” in the months of November and December, 2007, denounced these sacrilegious celebrations, with words of fire that ended with the phrase: «”Chiesa viva”, therefore, asks the Catholic Hierarchy: How long will you allow Masonry to insult Our Lord Jesus
Christ and the Most Holy Trinity?» But the ecclesiastical Authorities, undeterred, kept silent and continued the sacrilegious celebrations.
Then, “Chiesa viva” published letters received about these scandalous acts of the ecclesiastical authorities, in respect to this Satanic Temple. Followed by an article in the July-August 2008 issue, with the headline: “A Satanic Temple for Padre Pio?” that began the publication of a number of articles from newspapers, weekly, magazines, periodicals both Italian and other languages, letters, communications and events that exposed the scandal of this “Satanic Temple” crying out to God for vengeance.
But the usual and overused solution made a step upwards. They began talking about a visit by Benedict XVI to San Giovanni Rotondo. An official statement of Msgr. D’Ambrosio, Archbishop of Manfredonia-ViesteSan Giovanni Rotondo, and also Director of the Holy See for the Shrine and the Works of Padre Pio, was made on December 8, 2008. He read the statement of the Prefect of Papal Household, Msgr. James M. Harvey, who gave notice of the decision for the visit of Benedict XVI to San Giovanni Rotondo, on June 21, 2009, with a program attached of the visit.
Again, ignoring the proven facts, and despite the failure of 150 Prelates to refute the conclusions of the study on the Satanic Temple, now, they wanted to bring forth all the weight of the Authority of the Pope!
But the campaign of “Chiesa viva,” reporting the documents on the Satanic Temple of San Giovanni Rotondo, proceeded for months and months, until April of the following year.
The 21st of June arrived, the day of the visit of Benedict XVI. The Pope had to go to San Giovanni Rotondo by helicopter, but a violent storm in Rome prevented this, and so the Pope was transported via military aircraft, to the military airport of Foggia. He, then, continued by car to his final destination.
The Mass celebrated in the square of the Satanic Temple did not seem to have divine approval. In fact, at the end of the celebration, a pandemonium was unleashed. Torrential rains came and were followed by an onslaught of hail as big as walnuts. In an instant, all the faithful fled and disappeared. Was it a fluke that the television interrupted the filming of this event due to “technical failures?” Some people said that this was a “punishment from God.” Although this can never be proven with certainty, what one can be certain of is that God could have prevented this humiliation to the Vicar of Christ, but He didn’t!
Then, there was the unfortunate episode of the surreptitious “blessing” of the mosaic inscription in the crypt of the Satanic Temple, not scheduled in the ceremony and not even mentioned in the program. On the mosaic tombstone inscription reads:
«On the occasion of the pastoral visit, His Holiness Benedict XVI, in this church embellished by the devotion of the faithful and with the beauty of art enshrining the body of St. Pio of Pietrelcina, paused in prayer and blessed it.»
Aside from the lies that were always told reassuring people that the body of St. Pio of Pietrelcina would never be moved to the Satanic Temple, what is disturbing is the nature of improvisation that was given to this “blessing.” While the Holy Father was heading toward the exit of the crypt, his attention was focused on the mosaic inscription, which the Pope read with some surprise. Then, as he began to proceed, Msgr. D’Ambrosio put his arm around the Pope and then with his other arm, stopped him, showing him the sprinkler that a Capuchin friar was offering to the Pope.
So, the mosaic inscription was quickly blessed and without even a prayer. This act was not planned and, above all, the inscription, instead of referring to the blessing of the mosaics, refers to the entire church. Was it really a “trap” set for the Holy Father?
The cover of Chiesa viva’s July-August 2009 issue displayed the figure of the Pope with the Satanic Temple in the background. It bore the title: “Benedict XVI in the ‘Satanic Temple’ in San Giovanni Rotondo Why?”
In the text, among other things, he wrote: «Now, the Vicar of Jesus Christ, should be the Good Shepherd, and not a cause of distress for the millions of devotees of the Saintly Friar of San Giovanni Rotondo (…) He should have also known that this Temple is, in fact, a Masonic-style building (…) And he should have known also that (…) as Padre Pio, was a bitter opponent of Freemasonry, this Temple, therefore, is a posthumous revenge.»
And also: «In all these years, after the construction of this Satanic-Masonic Temple, never did the Vatican show a clear and official position. This includes the complete and total silence of the Cardinals in charge of the design and construction of this “New Church.” Therefore, this saying should apply: “Silence is consent”.» And again: «We of “Chiesa viva” ask: “How was it possible that the Vatican has been able to build a “Satanic Temple” – mocking millions and millions of Catholics around the world who gave stacks of money in good faith?»
“La Stampa,” Tuesday, February 11, 1992
Cardinal Ruini a Freemason?
In early February 1992, Msgr. Pietro Pinius stated: «Ruini is a Freemason, this is the evidence.» The “evidence” is the verbal exams, passed by the Vicar of the Pope to become “Secret Master of the Fourth Degree.”
«On the first page of the report, the inscription reads “Grand Orient of Italy,” dominated and flanked by three complex symbols: a Jewish star surrounded by a crown resting on four heads (one that is a head of a goat). The phrase: “Lodge of the Secret Master of Perfection,” is written further down, and alongside, the name of Camillo Ruini, in a signature scrawled in haste and repeated on every page.» Msgr. Pinius claims to have received the minutes from a serious “penitent” and stated, «I immediately sent the original documents out of Italy, to secure … » Then, he said he had received two phone calls: one from Card. Ratzinger, Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith; the other, from the Pope.
The secretaries of the Cardinal and the Pope denied it, the spokesman for Card. Ruini, Msgr. Virgilio Levi, called the document «clearly, and completely false, ridiculous and undignified.» Father Rosario Esposito said: «Bishop Pinto is a boy always in search of fame,» and «The accusations about Ruini are just silly … »
We make some observations.
1. P. Rosario Esposito, before becoming an honorary member of Freemasonry, said: «I am a Freemason to the bottom of my heart and soul … »
2. Msgr. Virgilio Levi is in the “List of Pecorelli” with the data: 04/07/1958, 241/3; LEVI.
3. After the death of Paul VI, Cardinal Ratzinger received a letter from Father Villa in which he proved that Card. Sebastiano Baggio (“List of Pecorelli,” data: 08.14.1957, 85/2640; SEBA), appointed as Chamberlain by John Paul II, wrote to the Grand Master of Italian Freemasonry, reassuring him that the secret documents of Paul VI would be delivered to him by Msgr. Pasquale Macchi (Personal Secretary of Paul VI and present in the “List of Pecorelli,” with the data: 04.23.1958, 5463/2; MAPA), and begging him to keep his promise to have him elected Pope. Cardinal Ratzinger didn’t even acknowledge receipt.
4. To the Prelate, who had shown the evidence, published by “Chiesa viva,” of Card. Casaroli belonging to Freemasonry, John Paul II said: «I know, I know, but I do not know who to put in his place!» To Cardinal Palazzini, who presented his concerns about the Masonic infiltration of the Church, Pope John Paul II, after beating his fist on the table, exclaimed: «It is I, who want it.»
Father Villa … prized?
Although it seems almost impossible to believe, Father Villa received, during these turbulent years, two major awards for his work as a journalist and writer, but above all, for his commitment to defend the Catholic religion and Christian civilization.
In December, 2008, Father Villa received his first award which was the “International Inars Ciociaria Journalist Award,” sponsored by the Presidency Council of Ministers, Ministry of Cultural Heritage, the National Order of Journalists, Council of the Region of Lazio, Province of Frosinone, URSE (Union od Historical Regions of Europe), on the grounds: «… for his very extensive work as a journalist, author of books and pamphlets on theology, asceticism, non-fiction … and for his commitment to defend the Christian roots of Europe and for his protection of truth against forces alien to our civilization.»
In October, 2009, he was awarded the second which was the “Cultural Prize of Val Vibrata di Teramo” for being «a journalist, an outstanding writer, an incorruptible editor, Head Publisher and Editor of
“Chiesa viva”,» but also «for being an eminent theologian devoting his ‘entire life to defend the Catholic religion and disseminating the historical truth and living according to the Gospel!»
What a contrast with the “awards” handed out to Father Luigi Villa in the last fifty years from certain members of the Ecclesiastical Hierarchy!
Benedict XVI in Brescia
The new Bishop of Brescia, Msgr. Luciano Monari, was officially installed in the diocese on Oct. 14, 2007. The brief biography of the official presentation of the new Bishop reported that his mother bore the name of Giuliana Ruini. There were those who confirmed and who denied the fact of kinship with the Cardinal Camillo Ruini, but someone from Rome assured Father Villa that Msgr. Monari was a man of Card. Ruini and a great enthusiast of Paul VI.
Msgr. Luciano Monari, Bishop of Brescia, from 2007
What seemed strange to some was the fact that only after a few weeks of taking office in Brescia, on November 11, 2007, Msgr. Monari went to celebrate Mass in the new church of Padergnone, the first church of the diocese of the Third Millennium, recently consecrated by the previous Bishop, Msgr. Sanguineti. Given the immense problems of a diocese like that of Brescia and the fact that the population of the village where the new church is located is only around one thousand people, there is really a reason to wonder: Why this visit?
After the announcement of the Pope’s visit to the Satanic Temple of San Giovanni Rotondo, Apr. 9, 2009, there was another announcement: Benedict XVI was coming to Brescia, November 8, 2009, “in the name of his predecessor,” “on the thirtieth anniversary of the death of Paul VI” and “in the footsteps of Paul VI.” The announcement was given by Msgr. Luciano Monari who said that «The reason, of course, is the thirtieth anniversary of the death of Paul VI.» And stressing that «Pope Ratzinger, as you know, was elevated to cardinal by Pope Paul VI and he has always had gratitude and great love for the Pope from Brescia.» The speech, that followed, was focused on the need for everyone to be in “communion” with the Bishop of Rome, Pope Benedict XVI.
And who was not in “communion” with the Bishop of Rome, but not about issues surrounding Catholic Doctrine as always, but, instead, for example, whether or not to beatify the “Servant of God” Paul VI? Would the invitation contained in the Edict of May 13 1992 of Card. Ruini: «We invite all individual believers to communicate directly or submit to the diocesan tribunal of the Vicariate of Rome any “information” from which we can, to some extent, argue against the reputation of sanctity of the saying “Servant of God” (Montini)» still be valid?
And what about him, who had seriously “obeyed” this “invitation,” though not as a simple “individual believer,” but as a serious and affirmed theologian who had received from Padre Pio the mission to dedicate his life to defend the Church of Christ from the work of Ecclesiastic Freemasonry, and he, who, since 1963, also had been informed by the Saint Friar that Paul VI was a Mason, and he, who with a mandate of Pope Pius XII to carried out this delicate task? What fate, will be reserved for him? After the announcement of the Pope’s visit to Brescia, made by Msgr. Monari, Father Villa told me, and repeated several times, more and more concerned: «We are at a turning point … They want to silence me … forever.»
The Masonic-Satanic Temple of the Padergnone (Brescia)
Only later, was I able to understand the true meaning of those words. Because, at Father Villa’s request to make an inspection of the “new church” in Padergnone, (the first church of the third millennium of our diocese), I answered evasively, and without conviction and commitments. It was only after the visit of Benedict XVI to San Giovanni Rotondo that I began to understand the gravity of the words of Father Villa.
The Pope had gone to San Giovanni Rotondo, he had celebrated in the square of the “Satanic Temple” and, even if it was a “trap” set by some Prelates who accompanied him, he had “blessed” that “Satanic Temple!” Why this visit? Why this “blessing”?
Why bring all the weight of the highest authorities of the Church when they had not succeeded in refuting the horrible reality proven at that “Satanic Temple?” Yes, definitely, we were at a turning point!
In late June, I began the first visit to the “new church” of Padergnone, which was followed by other visits for detailed studies, to take photographs and measurements. The “new church” was dedicated to the “Risen Christ.”
However, the Catholic religion is based on the Cross, namely, on the will of Jesus Christ to obey the Father and to suffer and die on the Cross so as to offer us the Redemption. His Resurrection, however, was not the result of an act of His will, but an act due to His Divine Nature!
Why, then, are those who do not believe in the Divinity of Christ so enthusiastic about the figure of the “Risen Christ?”
For the answer, one need only recall the words of one of the most bitter enemies of God and the Catholic Church, Alice Bailey, the priestess of the “New Age”
and the founder, in 1921, of the satanic “Lucifer Trust”
(The Court of Lucifer), which had outlined the plan, the creation of a New Universal Religion
with these words: «The “Risen Christ” and not the “Crucified Christ” is the distinctive note of the New Religion.» Here is the secret of the dedication of the “new churches” to the “Risen Christ!”
But what do they really mean by the term “Risen Christ?”
Jesus Christ is the “Master”, but, for them, the “Master” Mason becomes so at the 15th degree of Freemasonry of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite, “rising” from the condition of “man in whom the ultimate reality of being a man is clearly revealed, which, in himself, is simultaneously God”. That is the Mason from its previous state “rises” and becomes “Master” or “God-Man,” freeing himself from any Divine Authority, because he has become God! So, it is not the God who became man, who died on the cross and has “resurrected” because He is God, but instead it is the man who manifests himself as God in “Jesus Christ,” which for them is only the symbol of the “Master” Mason! Thus, with the term “Risen Christ” they do not celebrate the Divinity of Christ, but the Masonic self-deification of man, namely the “Cult of Man”
as a necessary step to proceed to the “Cult of Lucifer!”
But this is also the “Christology” of the “New Theology” of many of our Prelates. As the great Dominican Father Garrigou-Lagrange had summed up [on describing the “New Theology”], in 1946: «Thus, the material world would have evolved towards the spirit, and the spirit world would evolve, naturally, so to speak, toward the supernatural order and toward the fullness of Christ. Thus, the Incarnation of the Word, the Mystical Body, the universal Christ, would be merely a moment in universal Evolution … This is what remains of Christian dogmas, in this theory, which distances itself from Our Creed in proportion to its approach to Hegelian evolutionism.» And the great Dominican, then shouts: «Where does the “new theology” end? It is a return to Modernism through the roads of fantasy, error, and heresy.»
The one responsible for the project of the “new church” was Msgr. Ivo Panteghini belonging to the Curia of Brescia, for a few years, a “Consultant” at the Pontifical Commission for Cultural Heritage of the Church,” whose President was the Mason Msgr. Francesco Marchisano, already responsible for the construction of the Satanic Temple dedicated to St. Padre Pio. The Curia of Brescia approved the project, as did the Office of Divine Worship of the Italian Episcopal Conference (CEI), who in part, financed the project. Bishop Giulio Sanguineti, personally accused of being a mason by Fr. Villa, and unable to fight back, consecrated the “new church” a few weeks before being replaced. The new bishop, Msgr. Monari, newly installed, didn’t wait long before going to the “new church” to celebrate Mass. On the memorial cornerstone of consecration of the “new church”, there is an episcopal medal of Msgr. Sanguineti and two pontifical medals of John Paul II and Benedict XVI.
The study of the “new church” proceeded to identify the “Masonic unitarian idea” of the project: the dedication of the church was not to the “Risen Christ,” but “Knight of the Rose-Cross,” [i.e. the Knight of the Rosicrucians] of the 18th degree of A.A.S.R. Freemasonry whose task is to obliterate the Sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the Cross from the face of the earth, that is, in other words, to obliterate the Sacrifice of Christ in the Catholic Mass from the face of the earth.
The degree of the Rosicrucians, in fact, in essence, is the renewal of the bloody killing of God committed and figured for the first time at Calvary, while the Mass is the renewal of the real and bloodless sacrifice of Christ.
Every part of the “new church” is full of Masonic and satanic symbolism: the fountain outside, the structure with three spirals, the bronze door, the ceiling of the liturgical room, the chapel of the Baptistery, the benches, the statue of the “Risen Christ,” the windows, the altar, the tabernacle, the templar cross, the Virgin of Hope, the crypt, the flaming cross, the green area surrounding the church … they all exalt the God Pan, the Kabbalistic god Lucifer, the “Man-God” of Freemasonry, but the center of the whole work is the altar and the figure of the Knight of the Rosicrucians above it. This is the deepest secret of this “new church,” this is the “central idea.”
It is the Knight of the Rosicrucians who makes “justice” against the God who became man and redeemed humanity, against the God who has dethroned Lucifer from his almost absolute power he had over man, against the God hated by Freemasonry; it is the Knight of the Rosicrucians who, at the altar, does not renew the Sacrifice of Christ on the Cross, but reiterates the killing of God!
Some time ago, the author of a book on the Antichrist, called me asking me to send him twenty copies of the study on the “Satanic Temple” of San Giovanni Rotondo, because he was holding a conference. During the call, he made me aware of something that had happened recently. Along with a group of people, he had gone to visit an exorcist. The author informed the priest of his book on the Antichrist. The priest then told him of a strange exorcism that happened to him. He was exorcising a person possessed by Lucifer, when, suddenly, he heard him yelling: «I have made my throne, in Gargano» (Gargano is the province where the town of San Giovanni Rotondo is located).
The Exorcist, was astonished, unable to understand the meaning of those words. Then he recalled: «The next morning, by mail, I received a copy of “Chiesa viva” on the Satanic Temple of San Giovanni Rotondo, and read the study. Then I finally understood the words Lucifer said that previous day.»
Now if Lucifer, shouted: «I have made my throne, in Gargano» because of the “Satanic Temple” dedicated to St. Padre Pio, should we be surprised if, one day, another exorcist will tell us that he heard Lucifer screaming: «I have made my Altar in Brescia?»
In mid-October 2009, the Special Edition of “Chiesa viva” No. 420, was released under the title: “Brescia: the new parish church of Padergnone is a Satanic-Masonic Temple!” The distribution in Brescia, in the province and all over Italy was of enormous magnitude.
After a week, on October 21, I received a superficially ironic letter from Msgr. Ivo Panteghini.
I responded to him on Oct. 28, to the questions he posed to me, but also referred to that central issue of the Knight of the Rosicrucian which he didn’t make any reference to. At the end of dealing with that theme, I pointed out that Paul VI drew up a definition of the Mass that no more involved the Sacrifice of Christ on the Cross and the Real Presence. Then I wrote: «So, Paul VI can justly claim the title of being the Greatest Rosicrucian Knight who ever lived.» And then in conclusion: «Therefore, no Rosicrucian Knight in the world could ever aspire to earn the “glory” as Paul VI did with the dedication of the Satanic Temple of Padergnone.»
On November 6, 2009, when asked whether the presence of Pope Benedict XVI could be of some benefit to the “cause of beatification” of Paul VI, Msgr. Molinari said: «I hope so, not so much for the beatification as such, but because they are convinced that there is a treasure trove of original spirituality in the life of Paul VI and that the diffusion of this treasure will help enrich the Church today.»
On November 8, 2009, on the thirtieth anniversary of the death of Paul VI, as light rain fell, Benedict XVI landed at the airport of Ghedi (near Brescia). He went to the town of “Botticino Sera” for a tribute to Saint Tadini, then, Mass in the Cathedral, in Brescia, and the Angelus. In the afternoon, the Pope greeted the organizers of the visit at the Paul VI Pastoral Center, and then went to the birthplace of Pope Paul VI to inaugurate the new headquarters of the Institute of Paul VI in Concesio. He gave the sixth International award, dedicated to the Pope from Brescia. He made a quick visit to the Parish of St. Anthony, where Giovanni Battista Montini was baptized then departed for Ciampino (Rome) from the airport of Ghedi.
Throughout this visit, in Brescia, Benedict XVI, did not even hint about the “cause of beatification” of Paul VI.
From the day of publication of the Special Issue of “Chiesa viva” No. 420 of October 2009 on the “new church” of Padergnone, in Brescia, in the “circles” responsible for the erection of this Satanic Temple, there fell a gloomy sepulchral silence, with the exception of an unsuccessful attempt by Msgr. Luciano Monari to gratuitously smear Father Luigi Villa’s name, with a “Note of the Bishop,” published in the weekly of the Diocese of Brescia, “The Voice of the People” No 35.
Was this an attempt to find a way out of the embarrassing situation, which has arisen in our diocese, without considering the merits of the arguments shown by our study on the “Masonic Satanic Temple of Padergnone?” And what will this black atmosphere of oppression, which is becoming every day more and more heavy, produce, in the near future?
The “cause of beatification” of John Paul II
In November, 2009, just days after his return to Rome, after the visit made in Brescia, Benedict XVI announced the continuation of the “cause of beatification” of John Paul II. In early February, 2010, Father Villa decided to combine the twenty articles on John Paul II, already published in “Chiesa viva” over the past years, into a single PDF file and send it to thousands via e-mails that included: Holy See, Cardinals, Episcopal Conferences, Religious Institutes, Diplomatic Corp accredited to the Holy See, Catholic universities and training institutes, Bishops, Dioceses, Embassies, Consulates, Senators, Deputies, Regional Councils, the media, universities, libraries, booksellers, laity, etc.
Later, the Italian press began reporting the news about some difficulties that had emerged for the “cause of beatification” of John Paul II, and, then for several months, fell silent on this topic.
But Father Villa had already been activated to produce a Special Edition of “Chiesa viva” on John Paul II. This was to be a complete work, accessible to the general public, showing all dark sides of this disturbing “traveling” Pope, who spent much of his Pontificate chasing the mirage of uniting all religions into a One World Religion.
But the objective of One World Religion is the supreme end to which the heads of Freemasonry worldwide are trying to realize, for their dream of global world domination. But in order to accomplish this, they must eliminate Jesus Christ as the only Saviour and Redeemer of mankind, they must ignore and trample on the Truth, they have to reinterpret the Primacy of Peter, they must corrupt Catholic virtue, they must distort Catholic Morality, they must form a new Catholic Authority to be put in the service of and submit to the power of the Antichrist.
But Lucifer has lost his absolute power he had over humanity with the Sacrifice of Christ on the Cross, that he himself caused with the Deicide. His infernal rage then is completely directed and focused on this Act of Redemption of Jesus and his “bloodless renewal” in the Holy Sacrifice of the Catholic Mass! There is, however, a radical solution to solve this problem: to deny the Divinity of Jesus Christ.
This horrible blasphemy eliminates the Sacrifice of Christ on the Cross at its root and opens the door to all the “news” and any “updates” that are essential to “eclipse” the Church of Christ and create a “New Church” which becomes the “Whore of Babylon!” Then, the Sacrifice offered by Jesus Christ on the Cross to the Father, through the priestly ministry, which offers redemption and salvation of the soul, may become the renewal of the killing of God through the Masonic priestly ministry offered to another “god the father:” Lucifer, who, presenting himself as the Father of the Temple of Universal Peace among men, offers us his “Gnostic redemption” and, with a diabolical deception, diverts our aim of the salvation of souls, with the falsehood of a universal peace among men.
The Special Issue of “Chiesa viva” No. 420 on the Masonic-Satanic Temple of the Padergnone, located in a hamlet of Rodengo Saiano, in the diocese of Brescia.
The central idea of the hidden symbolism of this “new church,” dedicated to the “Risen Christ,” is the figure of the Knight of the Rosicrucians, the 18th degree A.A.S.R. of Freemasonry, which has the task to obliterate the Sacrifice of Christ on the Cross from the face of the earth.
On this “altar of Lucifer,” therefore, the Knight of the Rosicrucians, in his role as “Sacrificer to Lucifer” does not renew the Sacrifice of Christ on the Cross, but he renews the Deicide!
But this “god the father” is none other than the “god” of Freemasonry and its name is Baphomet, which written and then read right to left becomes: TEMpli, Omnium, Hominum, Pacis ABbas (the Father of the Temple of Universal Peace among Men) = BA P H O MET.
But this is exactly the central theme of the Satanic Temple of Padergnone of the Diocese of Brescia where, after having praised the God Pan and the Gnostic doctrine, which is the denial of the Divinity of Jesus Christ, the Knight of the Rosicrucian, on the altar, does not renew the Sacrifice of Christ on the Cross, but instead renews the Deicide!
We had also written that «No Knight of the Rosicrucian in the world could ever aspire to earn the glory as Paul VI did with the dedication of the Satanic Temple of Padergnone.»
Moreover, the memorial cornerstone of the consecration of this church by the Bishop, contains the silver episcopal medal of Msgr. Giulio Sanguineti and the silver pontifical medals of John Paul II
and Benedict XVI.
Why these two pontifical medals?
In September 2010, a Special Edition of “Chiesa viva” N° 430 was released bearing the title: “Karol Wojtyla beatified? … never!”
It is a Special Edition of 96 pages with 217 photographs that include: a short biography of Karol Wojtyla, his international travels, his ideas, his philosophy, his theology, his relations with the Freemasonry and Communism, his “facts” and “sayings,” his “Marian doctrine,” his positions on the Primacy of Peter and his “Theology of the Body,” with a series of photographs, to say the least, embarrassing. The back cover shows a photograph, a full-page image, of the Pope in flames, taken in his home country, exactly one year after his death. The spread of the PDF file of this Special Edition has reached all those who had already received the above PDF file, containing the 20 articles on John Paul II.
For four months silence fell on the “cause of beatification” of John Paul II.
On January 6, 2011, the announcement read: “John Paul II Saint Now.” The newspapers reported the news of the beatification of Pope Wojtyla in 2011.
This is the cover of a collection of 20 articles on John Paul II,
published in the Magazine “Chiesa viva,”
which was made into a PDF file.
It has reached tens of thousands of people worldwide, with the following priorities:
Holy See, Cardinal, Papal, Episcopal Conferences, the Bishops, Religious Institutes, the Diplomatic Corps accredited to the Holy See, universities, colleges and Institutes of Catholic education, Diocesan Italian Curia and foreign parishes, priests, deacons, Senators, Deputies, Embassies, Consulates, Regional and Provincial Councils, Municipalities, Universities, Libraries, radio, television, newspapers, magazines, periodicals, associations and Catholics groups, laity, etc.
In the Italian newspaper, il “Giornale,” the Vatican journalist Tornielli wrote: «John Paul II will be beatified in 2011, perhaps before the summer. In recent weeks, the medical consultation of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints presented a favorable view on the miracle attributed to the intercession of Pope Wojtyla – that is – the healing of a French nun from Parkinson’s – and the documentation in recent days has also passed the scrutiny of theologians. Before the file arrives on Benedict XVI’s desk, now the only thing missing is the green light of the Cardinals and Bishops who are members of the Congregation, who have just received the dossier on the miracle. They will meet to collectively consider and to cast their vote in mid-January.»
The Special Issue of “Chiesa viva”
No. 430, against the beatification of John Paul II,
was released in September, 2010 and reached tens of thousands of people similar to the distribution made with the previous PDF file of the 20 articles on this Pope. Besides the Italian and French editions, new editions are being prepared in other languages. This is a complete and accessible work available to the general public, showing all sides of this dark and disturbing “itinerant” Pope, who spent much of his Pontificate pursuing the mirage of bringing together all religions into a single World Religion under the direction of Freemasonry, to achieve the World Government of the Antichrist!
The “Times” says: «Benedict XVI has called him: “John Paul the Great.” He is “only the fourth pope in history to have had this honor.” The beatification should be done in record time, as Pope Benedict XVI had approved the exemption to immediately start the process of canonization, without waiting the five years specified in the death.»
On January 14, 2011, the official announcement of the Vatican: «John Paul II will be beatified on May 1st.»
For years, the “winds of suspicion” were spreading the idea that the “mind” of John Paul II, during his Pontificate, was the Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, [Ratzinger].
In April, 2005, when John Paul II died and Pope Benedict XVI was elected, many wondered if Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger merely succeeded himself!

Padre Pio and Chiesa Viva
Welcome to www.PadrePioandChiesaviva.com! This site has been developed to expose the Truth of what has happened to our beloved Catholic Church in the past 50 years. We have the permission of the Italian magazine, “Chiesa viva,” to publish their works included on this website. The founder and editor of the magazine is Father Luigi Villa.
Father Villa met with Padre Pio over fifty years ago. In a series of meetings with Padre Pio, Father Villa learned of a mission Our Lord desired to entrust him with that would eventually consume his life up until the present day. This mission was to defend the Catholic Church from Her enemies! Enemies that would not only attack from outside, but also enemies that would be so daring as to enter the very bosom of the Church to attempt to destroy Her from within!
This mission is therefore, truly a mission of love for our One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church that Our Lord promised would never be completely demolished as He promised, “the gates of Hell would not prevail against Her.”
