BREAKING: Benedict XVI Distances Himself From Sarah’s Book

Not surprisingly, Benedict XVI has distanced himself from the co-authorship of a new book on celibacy.

His secretary, Archbishop Georg Gänswein, told the Austrian news-agency KathPress.at (January 14) that he called the French publisher Fayard, asking him on behalf of Benedict to remove his name and picture from the cover.

Further, he asked to eliminate Benedict XVI‘s signature from the introduction and conclusion as he didn't co-authored these texts.

Gänswein confirmed that Benedict XVI wrote the small essay contained in the book. The text was written in summer 2019. Benedict allowed Sarah to use it as he wants.

According to Gänswein, Benedict XVI. was not informed about the form and layout of a co-authored book.

Did Gaenswein have his arm twisted...or was it slapped?
Le Précurseur
It's so wrong! Cardinal Sarah showed the letters signed by Benedict XVI which prove his agreement to the joint publication of this book!
Sad and confusing for all Catholics, as with everything in this 'pontificate'; building a 'bridge' to nowhere.
Conservatives can't win in this game of treachery and blackmail.
De Profundis
"Italian bishops' paper Avvenire reports Gänswein has asked Sarah to withdraw BXVI's name from cover/foreword. The paper states Gänswein says Benedict XVI authored the pages, but did not see/approve cover. If true, Benedict XVI is throwing Sarah to the lions of the next conclave." (Rorate Caeli)
De Profundis
Anyone who knows Cardinal Robert Sarah knows there is one thing he is not: a liar.
Like all totalitarian regimes Bergoglio's pontificate will not tolerate any expression of opposition to their agenda
Thors Catholic Hammer
There is no “bergoglian pontificate “
A formal excommunicated heretic like bergoglio can not sit on the Chair of St .Peter. Anyway that Chair is occupied by Pope Benedict who only half resigned the papacy.
Thors Catholic Hammer
Archbishop Ganswein is an extremely dangerous and noxious character.
That Pope Benedict is being manipulated by such a power mad schemer should be a matter of great concern to all Catholics.
O Maoleoin
Francis and Benedict both Neo Modernists.
Thors Catholic Hammer
What matters is who is the true pope? That is of far greater importance. A formal manifest heretic like francis can not be a pope.There is enormous doubt surrounding the alleged resignation of Benedict. The only safe course therefore is to continue recognize Benedict as the Vicar of Christ.
Issues of modernism etc are really quite insignificant when it comes to who is the true pope.
