Archbishop Gänswein has something to say to you.
ROME - Responding to interpretations of a recent reference by emeritus Pope Benedict XVI to the Church being near “capsizing,” the retired pontiff’s closest aid on Tuesday said it’s a “fantasy” to set him up against Pope Francis.
“They’re trying to use the pope emeritus in an anti-Francis tone,” said German Archbishop Georg Gänswein, speaking to the Italian daily Il Giornale.
“Stupid people,” Gänswein said. “The emeritus pope was deliberately exploited, he wasn’t alluding to anything specific with that phrase, but talking about the situation of the Church of today and that of the past as a boat that doesn’t sail in calm waters. Francis also says this.” - Crux
[I nearly fell for the fantasy story as it broke last weekend as well ... not in the same way as the anti-Francis detractors - nevertheless, their interpretation is one more reminder to avoid Catholic fake news sites. Take a look at this however, the comments at 1P5 here are so full of conspiracy theories and innuendo, it's not funny.]
