Gänswein Cries in Front of The Camera (Video)

Archbishop Georg Gänswein gave an address at a matinée of the Joseph Ratzinger/Pope Benedict XVI Foundation at Nymphenburg Palace in Munich on 18 June to mark Benedict's 95th birthday.

He was preceded by an address by the Apostolic Nuncio in Germany Nikola Eterovic. Significantly, Munich's Cardinal Marx was absent.

Gänswein's talk went according to plan until he turned to Benedict's resignation and the aftermath, saying the following:

"I would never have believed that the last stretch of road from the Monastero Mater Ecclesiae to the door of heaven of St. Peter..." He could not finish the sentence because he suddenly broke into sobs and had to interrupt his talk for 22 seconds.

Then he restarted: "until the heavenly door of St. Peter is so long" and sobbed again for 20 seconds. "This is what Benedict XVI entrusted to me in his fine humor," he added, only to have to pause again for 22 seconds.

This was shortly followed by another 15-second interruption until Gänswein could finish his talk.

I keep repeating to myself.. Why, why, why? Was it necessary for Pope Benedict to resign? I am sure that we can picture him as that "lamb" surrounded by many wolves, ready to devour him. Yet, could he have not surrounded himself with faithful Cardinal's and Bishops? I guest that the Smoke of Satan as Paul VI claimed that entered the Church is no longer the Smoke of Satan, but it is Satan himself …More
I keep repeating to myself.. Why, why, why? Was it necessary for Pope Benedict to resign? I am sure that we can picture him as that "lamb" surrounded by many wolves, ready to devour him. Yet, could he have not surrounded himself with faithful Cardinal's and Bishops? I guest that the Smoke of Satan as Paul VI claimed that entered the Church is no longer the Smoke of Satan, but it is Satan himself that is within the walls of St. Peter's and all of the Vatican. I have a funny feeling deep in the pit of my stomach that once God the Father calls Pope Benedict home, all hell will break loose and Satan will have his day trying to destroy Her from within. All I know is that Our Blessed Mother promised us that: "In the end My Immaculate Heart will Triumph." Deo Gratias!

He weeps as the rest of the Church should weep also.....
