It might also be the best way to open the eyes of those Catholics who do. Julia Melonia does a masterful job of showing the documented proof that the Synod on synodality unfolding within the Church right now is as the late Cardinal Pell described as a toxic nightmare that the Church must free itself from in his last testament after his sudden passing. It also provides concrete documented proof that back door politics within the highest ranking members of the magisterium in papal conclaves are as corrupt as those in jaded democratic governments of the western culture. Although the Holy Spirit is present at every moment of the Churchs life this recorded event illustrates that men of free will can actively reject cooperating with Gods will to bring about the reality of a man made agenda being implemented under the outward appearances of the visible structure of a divine institution. There actual conspiracy to undermine the Church made in His image and likeness and transform it into their own is well underway. May divine intervention stop this insidious plot to destroy the Church from within for the sake of the Remnant of committed Catholics that still hold the actual faith and have had the fortitude to stay within the Ark amidst its greatest storm in its 2000 year history.","date":"Dec 27th 2022"},{"name":"BARBARA P.","rating":"5","title":"Very revealing!","text":"So sad to read how these cardinals are trying and succeeding to infiltrate and change our Catholic religion.","date":"Dec 27th 2022"},{"name":"Don S.","rating":"5","title":"This book opened my eyes","text":"This book opened my eyes to the political process in bringing in the new leader of the Catholic Church.","date":"Sep 25th 2022"},{"name":"Darlene S.","rating":"5","title":"Sorry, I have not read","text":"Sorry, I have not read it yet.

This book is exemplary for the many sources provided that helps explain to me the long history of the modernist effort to change the church. It helps me better understand an explanation of the underlying reason for the apparent confusion associated with the actions - and failures to take action - on the part of Pope Francis. It lays out in detail his philosophic following of Cardinal Martini and the &quot;dreams&quot; of changing the church consistently following 2,000 years of tradition to go from a strong papacy with a universal set of beliefs to a much weaker papacy and regional churches run by local synods of bishops. Local synods that, as we see brewing in Germany right before our eyes, that could endorse different moral and political views in different parts of the world. No wonder Pope Benedict xvi predicted a smaller, more faithful church at some point in the future. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is seriously concerned with the direction of the Vatican in this time. I anticipate this smaller church , if Pope Benedict;s prophetic view is correct, that it will be the only one that will be able to point to universality of belief and practice.","date":"Aug 28th 2022"},{"name":"Melody K.","rating":"5","title":"Knowledge is power.","text":"I believe it takes courage to expose evil wherever it exists.

In the mid-1990s, a clandestine group of high-ranking churchmen began gathering in St. Gallen, Switzerland. Opposed to Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, the circle plotted a revolution in stealth.
 
By 2015, their secret ached to be told. Before an audience, Cardinal Godfried Danneels joked of being a part of a “mafia.” But as explosive as Danneels’s confession was, a thick cloud of mystery still enshrouds the St. Gallen mafia.
 
In this compelling book, Julia Meloni pieces together the eerie trail of confessional evidence about the St. Gallen group. The St. Gallen Mafia sheds light on:
  • The mysteries of the 2005 conclave, where mafia members grew divided over a plan to back Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio as pope
  • The war against Benedict XVI by the mafia’s Cardinal Achille Silvestrini—and the mysterious “confessions” believed to be linked to him
  • The enigmatic, complicated relationship between the mafia’s Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini and Benedict XVI
  • The mafia writings that presaged a new Francis—and the 2013 conclave that elected him
  • Martini’s enduring role as an “ante-pope”—a precursor for Pope Francis
 
Copiously researched and grippingly narrated, The St. Gallen Mafia exposes a long-simmering plan to dramatically reshape the Catholic Church.
 
 

"I have studied the text and find it to be excellent."
-Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke

“Reading this book is as exciting as reading a novel, but everything in it is documented with a rigorous historical method . . . Julia Meloni tells the story of a real conspiracy, of which she accurately exposes the end goal, the means, the places, and the protagonists.”           
–Roberto de Mattei, historian, Lepanto Foundation

“Julia Meloni’s new book The St. Gallen Mafia provides a valuable service to readers curious about the origins of the current pontificate. Drawing on a wide range of sources, she fills in the picture of the St. Gallen Mafia, a group of influential liberal prelates who plotted for years to elect a progressive-minded pope.” 
–George Neumayr, Journalist, The American Spectator
