Were the Chinese Deep State & the Deep Church involved in an Assassination Threat against Pope Benedict XVI?

In 2020, in a LifeSiteNews' article "Cdl. Zen urges cardinals to stop the 'murder of the Church in China,'" it was revealed that Cardinal Joseph Zen in his letter and dubia to the cardinals said:

"I have reason to believe (and I hope one day to prove with archival documents) that the agreement signed is the same one that Pope Benedict had, at the time refused to sign."

It appears the Chinese Communist regime's Deep State may have had a reason to attempt to force Pope Benedict XVI's resignation since he may have refused to sign the China deal that betrayed the Chinese Catholic underground which Francis signed.

If this is true, might the Deep Church, which includes the Vatican gay lobby, which is closely associated with Francis have been involved with the attempt to force Pope Benedict to resign?

Here is the evidence:

New Ways Ministry revealed in 2012 that Cardinal Paolo Romeo apparently was part of the Vatican gay lobby when the dissenting homosexual group posted that  GayStarNews reports:

“Three Italian Catholic cardinals have agreed to prayer vigils held by the religious group Gionata for the victims of gay hate and discrimination for the first time.“LGBT groups will pray for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in Milan, Florence and Palermo, in Sicily as part of the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHO) to be celebrated . . . in an estimated 100 countries around the world. . . . 
“Cardinal Paolo Romeo, in Palermo, . . . [has] backed it, even though he banned the vigil last year. The liturgy there will be celebrated at 9pm . . . in the San Gabriele Arcangelo church.” [https://www.newwaysministry.org/2012/05/17/three-italian-cardinals-support-prayer-vigils-for-international-day-against-homophobia-and-transphobia/

The pro-gay Romeo in China spoke of an assassination attempt on Pope Benedict XVI to "Italian businessmen and Chinese representatives of the Catholic Church" according to the Telegraph in 2012:

"Cardinal Romeo reportedly made the startling prediction of the Pope's death during a trip to China in November 2011."

"He seemed so sure of the fact that the people he spoke with, including Italian businessmen and Chinese representatives of the Catholic Church, were convinced that he was talking about an assassination attempt."

"... The extraordinary comments were written up in a top-secret report, dated Dec 30, 2011, and delivered to the Pope by a senior cardinal, Dario Castrillon Hoyos, a Colombian, in January."

"The Vatican has reportedly opened an investigation into the claims. The report was written in German, apparently to limit the number of people within the Vatican who would understand it if it was inadvertently leaked."

"It warns of a "Mordkomplott" – death plot – against Benedict."

"'The story was broken on Friday by an Italian daily, Il Fatto Quotidiano, with the headline 'Plot against the Pope – he will die within 12 months'".

"The newspaper, which has a reputation for scoops, published a page from the confidential report.

"'During his talks in China, Cardinal Romeo predicted the death of Benedict XVI within 12 months. His remarks were expressed with such certainty and resolution that the people he was speaking to thought, with a sense of alarm, that an attack on the Pope's life was being planned,'" the paper reported."

"'Cardinal Romeo could never have imagined that the indiscreet remarks he made on the trip to China would be communicated back to the Vatican by third parties.'"

"Asked about the reported comments on Friday, however, Romeo said that the words attributed to him were 'absolutely without basis.'" [https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/vaticancityandholysee/9073811/The-Pope-will-die-within-a-year-Vatican-assassination-fears-revealed.html]

Despite Romeo's denial Benedict's close associate Cardinal Hoyos thought the assassination threat serious and delivered the "top-secret report" to the then Pope.

The pro-Francis liberal pro-China Maria Antonietta Calabrò, who is considered a well-informed and highly respected Italian journalist, claims there is a connection between "obscure threats" of assassination by alleged to the pro-gay Romeo and the "obscure threats" of former Apostolic nuncio Carlo Maria Viganò about Pope Francis's sex abuse cover-ups.

Calabrò in Italy's HuffPost (link) wrote:

"Surprisingly, the pope referred to the attack against him, launched exactly a month ago, by the former Apostolic nuncio Carlo Maria Viganò. The Pope did not call him by name, but he said:  "When there was that famous communiqué of a former Apostolic nuncio, the episcopates of the world wrote to me saying that they felt close, praying for me; Even the Chinese faithful have written, and the signature of this writing was of the Bishop – say so – of the traditional Catholic Church and the Bishop of the Patriotic Church: Together, both, and the faithful of both churches. For me, this was a sign of God".

"... No one can deny that the accord of the Vatican with China takes on a geopolitical value beyond a spiritual and religious value."

"Just when the United States of Trump has begun a trade war with Beijing, the American Catholic right in recent days recalled the role of unofficial negotiator carried out by the now former Cardinal McCarrick precisely with China."

"It is precisely about a trip to China by McCarrick in 2013 that the former Nuncio Viganò spoke in his 'statement,' as proof of the Pope's condescension towards him
"... The Viganò case, in short, ended up speeding up the Pope's agreement with China." 

"No one can deny that the Vatican's agreement with China assumes a geopolitical value as well as spiritual and religious. Just at the time when the United States of Trump started a trade war with Beijing, the American Catholic Right has recalled in recent days the role of unofficial negotiator played by the now McCarrick in 2013 spoke the former nuncio Viganò in His "communiqué", as proof of the pope's condescension towards him. Also the predecessor of Francis, Pope emeritus Benedict XVI, also a extensor of an open letter to Chinese Catholics, received at the beginning of 2012 obscure threats after a trip to China of another prelate. And that document ended up in the first Vatileaks scandal."

Dr. Robert Moynihan writing on the Calabrò article in Letter 61 said:

"So her argument is that the attacks on Pope Francis and the calls for his resignation are in some way animated by... forces close to the present US government, seen as in strong opposition to the Holy See's new "opening" to China."

"In today's piece, Calabrò notes that former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, 88, the man at the center of Vigano's Testimony (which is, essentially, a "who's who" of those in the Church hierarchy whom Vigano charges 'covered' for McCarrick over the past two decades) made at least 8 trips to China over many years, including at least one during this pontificate of Pope Francis."

"She notes that it was precisely a trip that McCarrick made to China in June of 2013, with Francis' evident knowledge and blessing — after a period of about 7 years under Pope Benedict when McCarrick made no trips to China — which was used by Vigano as 'proof' that Francis 'favored' or 'rehabilitated' McCarrick though (Vigano says) Francis knew of allegations sexual abuse against McCarrick."

"In other words, she is pointing out that the trip of McCarrick to China in June 2013 is a key hinge point in Vigano's Testimony."

"This is interesting, as a thesis."

"But the concluding lines of this report today by Calabrò seem a bit odd."

"... This is puzzling. An allegation that someone has covered up for someone who has sexually molested young men (the allegation made against Francis by Vigano) is seemingly not comparable to the prediction that a Pope will die of poisoning due to a plot against him by his enemies (the prediction made by Romeo about Pope Benedict). Why are they compared?[On Sep 26, 2018 7:58 PM, "Dr. Robert Moynihan" MoynihanReport@xxxxxx]

The answer to Moynihan's puzzle may be:

- That China is and was involved or allied with the Vatican gay lobby which includes McCarrick, Romeo and Francis in the betrayal of the Chinese underground Church.

- That the gay lobby which is apparently represented by Romero while in China spoke of the alleged assassination threat just prior to Pope Benedict's resignation to "Chinese representatives of the Catholic Church." Were there Communist operatives in that group of  "Chinese representatives of the Catholic Church"? 

According to Moynihan's Letter 61there is "one bishop from the "underground" Catholic Church loyal to Rome" willing to betray his own Chinese Church to the Communist:

"Pope Francis, Francis said yesterday, and among these letters was a letter from China signed by...

...one bishop from the "Patriotic" Catholic Church (approved by the Communist government) and...

...one bishop from the "underground" Catholic Church loyal to Rome."
As a last aside on some more possible evidence of an assassination threat according to a commenter on the Catholic Monitor on a "most horrific threat" against Benedict:

"Cardinal Dario Castrillón Restrepo, who was an extremely important Cardinal especially during JP II's & Benedict XVI's pontificates, and was a key negotiator during several world crisis like the cold war, was interviewed by Colombian Television Channel "Caracol". The video was uploaded on youtube May 10, 2018 and Cardinal Dario passed away May 18, if I remember correctly. So, this interview was very timely, only a few weeks before his death. In that interview, Cardinal Dario admits that he was the one who had received a very painful letter "written in chinese" which urged him to hand-deliver the letter to the Holy Father (Benedict XVI). Cardinal Dario said the letter contained the most horrific threats beyong [sic] imagination. So much, that it was too much for the Holy Father to bear and for that reason, said the Cardinal, His Holiness Benedict XVI renounced. Cardinal Dario says Benedict XVI renounced only months after he read the letter. He mentioned that after he read the letter, both Cardinal Dario and His Holiness Benedict XVI vowed to keep it a secret between the two, but Cardinal Dario said that 'someone knew and told everyone.'"

"So, the question about China being involved? Hmm..very likely?? FYI, the link to the video interview on youtube says the video is no longer available in our country (U.S.)"

Was China involved or allied with the Vatican gay lobby in the assassination threat just prior to Pope Benedict's resignation?

Was the alleged assassination threat one of the main reasons Benedict resigned? 

Francis Notes:

- 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)


Saint Robert Bellarmine, also, said "the Pope heretic is not deposed ipso facto, but must be declared deposed by the Church."

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
