Rome Reports Titles this Piece: Pope Calls Holocaust Denial Intolerable And Unacceptable


But we all understand what Your Holiness is actually saying: Pope Praises Nostrae Atatae Calls Bp Williamson Intolerable and Unacceptable


Hence the title of this thread!



Text of the Video:


Without mentioning the uproar over the comments of Lefebvrist bishop Richard Williamson, the Pope spoke out strongly against the Holocaust and the people who deny it happened.

Benedict XVI
The hatred and contempt for men, women and children that was manifested in the Shoah was a crime against God and against humanity. This should be clear to everyone, especially to those standing in the tradition of the Holy Scriptures, according to which every human being is created in the image and likeness of God. It is beyond question that any denial or minimization of this terrible crime is intolerable and altogether unacceptable.

The Pope also expressed solidarity and sorrow for victims of the Holocaust, drawing from his own experience visiting the Auschwitz concentration camp early in his papacy. He also said it is necessary to learn from the lessons of history.

Benedict XVI
To remember is to do everything in our power to prevent any recurrence of such a catastrophe within the human family by building bridges of lasting friendship. It is my fervent prayer that the memory of this appalling crime will strengthen our determination to heal the wounds that for too long have sullied relations between Christians and Jews.

Benedict XVI also tackled another issue set off by the Williamson controversy: the relationship between Jews and Catholics as defined in the Second Vatican Council. He reaffirmed that Nostra Aetate was still the definitive document on Catholic-Jewish relations, one which was not recognized by the Lefebvrists.

And yet he promotes Mueller to Guardian of the Faith, the very same who blasphemes God and His Holy Mother!

Blaspheme in Rome, get promted

Speak your opinion on historical matters which concern the jews and get blasted by the Pope and kicked out of your order.

UNBELIEVABLE!  and the diabolical disorientation goes on and on and on and on.

Apology Letter of Bishop Richard Williamson

Mgr Richard Williamson

To His Eminence Cardinal Castrillón Hoyos
Your Eminence
Amidst this tremendous media storm stirred up by imprudent remarks of mine on Swedish television, I beg of you to accept, only as is properly respectful, my sincere regrets for having caused to yourself and to the Holy Father so much unnecessary distress and problems.
For me, all that matters is the Truth Incarnate, and the interests of His one true Church, through which alone we can save our souls and give eternal glory, in our little way, to Almighty God. So I have only one comment, from the prophet Jonas, I, 12:
"Take me up and throw me into the sea; then the sea will quiet down for you; for I know it is because of me that this great tempest has come upon you."
Please also accept, and convey to the Holy Father, my sincere personal thanks for the document signed last Wednesday and made public on Saturday. Most humbly I will offer a Mass for both of you.
Sincerely yours in Christ
+Richard Williamson

Written to Cardinal Castrillón Hoyos on January 28, 2009.

It appears dearest Bishop Williamson in an effort to appease the jews they have taken you up on your offer and thrown you to wolves as a sacrifice.

Who knows what graces come from such things as those which we suffer by the hands of those who we call our brother, our Father. 

God bless you and you remain in my prayers.

Just a small reminder, Bishop Williamson NEVER denied the holocaust!


Our Lady of La Salette, pray for us!


God Bless Bishop Williamson, and all loyal Priests!  God in His goodness sends us suffering, in His goodness He gave us His example how to suffer. God sends His choicest crosses to those he loves the most, those He requires the most from. Some will follow him and some will not. I pray for Our Blessed Mother to watch over them, guide them and keep them strong. And I thank Her for Blessing us with such loyal, devoted and faithful servants. With love!
