Do you buy this story? "I entered the confessional, knelt down, made my confession (which was nothing this priest hadn’t heard thousands of times, and certainly nothing to do with any Church politics or the identity of the Vicar of Christ because this was towards the beginning of Bergoglian Antipapacy, and I hadn’t yet realized that Pope Benedict’s resignation was invalid). When I finished my confession, there was silence. Nothing. I said, “Father, that is my confession.” Nothing. “FATHER?” I peered through the grate trying to see if I could see anything, and I could see the priest, and that he was awake, and sitting up straight, so he hadn’t fallen asleep or been stricken. I said, “FATHER? Are you going to give me absolution?” The priest then turned and put his face close to the grate and HISSED, “Why don’t you go home and KILL YOURSELF."

I've personally caught Anne Barnhardt bending the truth once before. @Live Mike Like so many Francis-haters, the ends justifies the means.

We are unlikely to find one who is more sincere than the writer of the article. @Advocata Yes, I believe the story is true.

Cuthbert Mayne The author of the article is a woman.

In my eight years in Rome I only went to Confession in St Peter's once, and that was enough. From my own experience and that of others, Confessors there are ridiculous hard asses, who think their job is to chew out pilgrims and tourists.

Also Nb:
It is not the Rite of Pius V. It is the Roman Rite that predates PV by hundreds of years. It …More

- so clearly the person who wrote the article takes their doubts about who is the Pope to confession. They do so because they’re denying pope Francis as pope. I think they probably encountered a friend in the confessional, a friend who’s waiting beside them always.

Reminds me of Borgia Pope. Is it true emeritus Benedict is still considered pope?

I know the Devil goes after priest the hardest and if a priest was needed an exorcism, he is in the right place. It would seem odd if they didn’t know this priest needed an exorcism....

Praise be Jesus Christ now and forever! Amen.

" Is it true emeritus Benedict is still considered pope?" No, and Benedict said so himself. He also renounced the title of "emeritus" nearly seven years ago. Talk about old news, eh? ;-)
