Is Pope Francis Silent and Lying now as he was Silent and Lied in Sex Abuse Cover-up Case as a Argentine Archbishop according to Documentary on German National TV?

Is Pope Francis silent and lying (by his implication that accuses Vigano of causing scandal) about Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano's credible testimony that he covered-up the sex abuse of ex-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick as he was silent and lied about the sex abuse cover-up case of the "now-infamous Father Julio César Grassi who has been imprisoned for 15 years because of his abuse of children" when Francis was then Argentine Archbishop Jorge Maria Bergoglio according to a German documentary?

LifeSiteNews reports that the German national TV channel ZDF is currently running a documentary by Martin Boudot which is being aired now and "making the rounds in the German-speaking world called the 'The Silence of the Shepherds.'"

The documentary says six alleged victims of abuse all say that then-Archbishop Bergoglio was silent and "never answered their own specific complaints when they wrote to him as the archbishop of Buenos Aires." Journalist Maike Hickson wrote:

"When asked by the documentary journalists whether or not they ever received an answer, they all shook their heads in the negative. Asked about the above-quoted statement that Bergoglio never having a pedophile priest in his diocese and whether he says here the truth, one abuse victim, a woman, answered: 'He [Francis/Bergoglio] wants people to believe that, but it is a lie.'”

Hickson below reveals that the documentary shows Francis lying about "a counter-inquiry" he commissioned to cover-up for the priest predator. She quotes the documentary saying “How can the Catholic Church retrieve itself from these guilty silences?”:

"The documentary states that, Bergoglio, as Pope Francis 'never publicly commented on the Grassi case.' The journalists themselves had tried for eight months to obtain an interview with the pontiff on the subject, but to no avail. Since they failed, the journalists stood in line at Saint Peter's during one of the papal audiences and were able to call out to Pope Francis: 'Your Holiness! Your Holiness, in the Grassi case, did you try to influence Argentine justice?' Pope Francis, making a stunned face (caught on film here in the documentary), replied 'No!' The journalists continued, saying: 'No? Then why did you commission a counter-inquiry?' The Pope responded, with a similar face: 'I never did.' The documentary then asks: 'How can the Catholic Church retrieve itself from these guilty silences?'”

A better question is:

How can the Catholic Church retrieve itself from the Francis/Bergoglio guilty silences?

According to Journalist Hickson, the documentary says victims believe Bergoglio “willfully tried to divert the course of justice” and cover-up for a sex abusing priest:

"Reference was here made to Father Grassi. 'The Argentinian Church did all in its power to have him acquitted,' explained the speaker. Juan Pablo Gallego, the defense attorney of the abuse victims, pointed out that the Argentine bishops in 2010 – after the first punitive sentence was spoken about Grassi – had asked a penal law professor (Marcelo A. Sancinetti) to conduct a study, which was compiled in a confidential dossier for internal use, dealing with the Grassi case."

"This dossier, which was called 'Studies on the Grassi Case' and contained 2,800 pages, came to the conclusion that 'the court was wrong,' that Grassi was innocent and therefore should be acquitted. The author also claimed that the abused children spread 'falsifications, lies, deceit and invention.'”

"This study, as the documentary pointed out, was made on behalf of the Argentine bishops under the leadership of Archbishop Jorge Bergoglio, who was, at that time, also the President of the Argentine Bishops' Conference (2005-2011). This information is written on the back cover of the dossier. 'So the Pope,' the speaker in the documentary concluded, 'did then commission a counter-inquiry to try to have a priest who had been sentenced for pedophilia acquitted.'”

“'And it is said,' the speaker in the documentary continued, 'that Jorge Bergoglio, the future Pope, actually sent it to the judges, with a shrewd sense of timing, before Father Grassi's various appeal hearings.' Carlos Mahiques was one of these judges. In an interview for this documentary, he made it clear that this study, as ordered by Bergoglio, 'is in some areas partial, and extremely partial in others,' and that is why he, as judge, did not allow himself to be influenced by it."

“'It was clearly in favor of Father Grassi,' the judge said. 'They were trying to exert a subtle form of pressure on the judges.” When asked whether he thought the Church tried to influence the judges, Mahiques replied: 'That's totally correct.'”

"In an interview in the documentary with one of the abuse victims of Father Grassi, it becomes clear that Grassi claimed to stand under the protection of Bergoglio."

“'Bergoglio never let go of my hand,' are the words as they are quoted by the abuse victim who claimed to have heard them from Grassi himself. The victim continued, saying that Bergoglio now 'is Pope Francis, but he has never gone against Grassi’s words. So I’m certain that he never did let go of Grassi’s hand!'"

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.

Taylor Marshall finally admitted that "Francis teaches HERESY," now, the question is will he do a Skojec & a Schneider Cop Out

    Doctor of the Church St. Francis de Sales totally confirmed beyond any doubt the possibility of a heretical pope and what must be done by the Church in such a situation: "[T]he Pope... WHEN he is EXPLICITLY a heretic , he falls ipso facto from his dignity and out of the Church, and the Church MUST either deprive him , or, as some say, declare him deprived, of his Apostolic See." (The Catholic Controversy, by St. Francis de Sales, Pages 305-306) Taylor Marshall finally admitted that "Pope Francis teaches HERESY: Pope Pius XII condemned the heresy of Francis": Pope Francis on Feb 2 2022, taught, "that in Christ no one can ever truly separate us from those we love because the bond is an existential bond, a strong bond that is in our very nature...who have denied the faith, who are apostates." Pope Pius XII taught the exact opposite when he wrote of those: "who have not been so unfortunate as to separate themselves from the unity of the Body, or b

Wernz-Vidal: "One cannot consider as Schismatics those who Refuse to Obey the Roman Pontiff because they would hold his person Suspect or, because of Widespread Rumors, Doubtfully Elected"

    Pope Francis is tottering on the precipice of Hell. None of this means he isn't the pope, and such talk among the laity is scandalous in its own right. Not a single cardinal in that 2013 conclave has come out and said the election was rigged and Bergoglio isn't the pope, that he is in fact an anti-pope . If he is, a future pope can declare that, when Jorge Bergoglio will no longer be a pope. But if the very men gathered in conclave haven't made that public accusation,  anyone who is suggesting that better take into account that they too will have to give an account of themselves to Almighty God when they die . Such talk adds to the scandal of the "little ones," the simple, even potential converts, who, when they hear big-mouth Catholics on social media saying he's not really the pope, draw back from approaching the Church. Do any of us desire to stand in front Our Blessed Lord as the Supreme Judge and explain why, in our desire for more c

The Nuremberg Trial-like Excuse which Cardinal Burke has so Staggeringly, so Stereotypically Proffered on the Promised “Formal Correction”

Does Cardinal Burke think Francis is an antipope? On at least five occasions, Cardinal Burke has rejected the magisterial nature of official papal teaching (in one case, pre-emptively dismissing a hypothetical official teaching of the Magisterium): Cardinal Burke has rejected the official teaching of Pope Francis in the new Apostolic Constitution Episcopalis Communio concerning the possibility that a pope can raise the final synodal document to the level of ordinary magisterium, if the pope chooses. (We covered the Episcopalis Communio here .) The whole apostolic constitution on the Synod is problematic. … This idea that either the Pope on his own or the Synod together with the Pope can create some new Magisterium [i.e. a new teaching of the ordinary Magisterium], is simply false. The Synod is a consultative body, to help the Pope to see how best to present the Church’s teaching in time. It’s not able to create ordinary Magisterium. As a canon lawyer, Cardinal Burk
