Francis: “Some Prelates Wanted Me Dead”

"I know there were even meetings between prelates who thought the pope was more seriously ill than what was being said. They were preparing the conclave."

This is what Francis – who speakes so much about “discernment” – thought 53 Slovak Jesuits needed to hear during his meeting with them in the Nunciature in Bratislava (September 13).

"I am still alive, despite the fact that some wanted me dead," he continued in the same vein according Father Antonio Spadaro talking to LaStampa.it.

This isn’t the first time he’s publicly said this, and a major problem if the entire mission of a network is to cover the Catholic Church, the Vatican and the Papacy.

"Nurses sometimes understand the situation more than doctors because they are in direct contact with the patients.” --implying a.) they are better educated than doctors in diagnosis and b.) doctors don't reguarly visit the patients under their care. Typical marxist Francis, always championing the proletariat.
