“not Canonically Elected…not a true Pastor, but a Destroyer”—St. Francis of Assisi

Shortly before he died in 1226 A.D., St. Francis of Assisi prophesied that:


“A man, not canonically elected, will be raised to the pontificate… In those days Jesus Christ will send them not a true pastor, but a destroyer.”



The “Team Bergoglio” Scandal



Rome — Dec. 25, 2014: Since the scandal regarding Team Bergoglio broke, the From Rome blog has assiduously followed the news and studied what the consequences have been.  On that account more than 25,000 visitors from more than 120 countries have visited this blog to find the news that was not being summarized or published elsewhere.


“Team Bergoglio” is the name given by Dr. Austen Ivereigh, former spokesman to His Eminence, Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor, ex-Archbishop of Westminster, England, to the group of Cardinals who campaigned for Cardinal Bergoglio in the 2013 Conclave.


The Scandalous consequences of the revelations of Dr. Ivereigh’s book, can be summed up thus: Dr. Ivereigh has written a book alleging as many as 30 cardinals did that which is apparently a violation of the papal law on conclaves, on which account they would be ipso facto excommunicated, Cardinal Bergoglio included, and the election of the latter by 2013 Conclave be null and void and of no effect. — As of this date, no substantial denial has been made by anyone of the accused, and Dr. Ivereigh has not substantially withdrawn, changed, or altered what he wrote.


To continue to assist Catholics and journalists world-wide who wish to know more about this scandal, we present here a summary and links through which readers can grasp the basic and detailed facts of the case which has arisen.


First, our article, The Chronology of Reports on “Team Bergoglio”, contains the master-list of all the news reports of note and blog posts, videos, audios, tweets, etc. which regard crucial information or analysis of the story: this list is in Chronological order according to the date the information was published or presented.


But since the Chronology has already grown to 8 pages in length, for those wishing to grasp the facts, we suggest the following articles:



The other articles which reports facts of lesser interest, though important of themselves, can be found in the Chronology article link above.



Editor’s notes:


  • Antipope: A false claimant of the Holy See in opposition to a pontiff canonically elected. At various times in the history of the Church illegal pretenders to the Papal Chair have arisen, and frequently exercised pontifical functions in defiance of the true occupant.…

  • The man “subsisting in” the Chair of Peter has spent so much time with the Pharisees that he has embraced their subjective “morality.” In that, he has almost caught up with his family… or have they caught up with him?

“Maria Elena sinks his fingers in a blue cardboard box, from which she takes two letters: a handwritten one from May 1958, to her parents from the "Sagrada Familia" College of Cordoba, and another written to her newly divorced (spouse), a few years later...He (Francis) has always been there for me. Even when facing a divorce from my husband, he supported me, he helped me.  I still can not believe that he became Pope. ”
