JMB a Doctor of the Church?

“ that the scoundrels that presently infest the Vatican like so many cockroaches are propagandists and liars. Their story in this case has all the markings of fake news, a legend that they presumably intend to leverage to their advantage moving forward.

I have little doubt that, in the weeks and months ahead, the Unholy See will publish alleged firsthand and secondhand reports (and perhaps even written forgeries) indicating that Benedict considered Jorge Bergoglio a Doctor of the Church, a prophet, and no less than a gift from Almighty God.

My advice? Assume that it’s all fake unless proven otherwise. ”
