According to the Encyclopedia, Pope Pius was the 9th successor of Simon Peter. Nothing could be further from the truth because there was no apostle of Joshua named Simon Peter. That apostle was named Simeon Cephas and he was wanted for grave robbing by the Roman government.

The only Simon who was present in Rome at the time of Saint Paul was Simon the Sorcerer.

Emperor Antoninus Pius.
Emperor Antoninus Pius.
Emperor from 138 to 161.

Pontifex Maximus Antoninus Pius was the 15th Emperor of Rome.

Pius means devoted to the Roman gods and he was a devout worshipper of Jupiter and Minerva.

The only Simon who visited Rome was Simon the Sorcerer!!

Pope from c.140 to c.155.

Antoninus Pius is famous for building the Antonine Wall in Caledonia . . . which later was the birthplace of Saint Patrick....He was an enlightened pagan who despised Mars . . . but was piously devoted to Jupiter and Minerva.

Pagan Pius never kept the Christian Sabbath day holy or tried to replace the pagan Roman 8-day week with the Christian 7-day week.

Furthermore, Emperor Antoninus Pius cannot be called a Christian because the Vatican claims that Constantine was the first "Christian" Emperor and Popes did not begin to wear the triple crown until the beginning of their temporal power in 755.

The second Pius, Enea Silvio Bartolomeo Piccolomini (1405–1464) was Pope from 1458, until his death in 1464.

Pope Pius II is known for his attempt to convert Mehmet II—the Conqueror of Constantinople—to the Latin Church.

Of course, he was unsuccessful because Mehmet II was already serving the Vatican by conquering Old Rome's millenarian rival.

The family of New World Discoverer Giovanni Caboto moved from Genoa to Venice during the pontificate of Pius II.

Cynically, Pope Pius II was determined to use his Terrible Turks against another rival in Italy named the Doge of Venice.

The third Pius, Francesco Todeschini Piccolomini (1439–1503) was Pope for 26 days only in 1503.

Cesare Borgia

Nephew is a code word for the son of a Pope or any member of the Latin clergy.

Pope Pius III was Pope for only 26 days and then succumbed to the poison cup of Cesare Borgia.

His reign was the shortest in Pontifical history.

Borgia was very anxious to follow his father into the Pontifical Chair.

After the debacle of Pope Alexander VI, the Italians were determined that there would be no more Catalan (Spanish) Popes. The Borgias already controlled Italy, and Cesare Borgia was determined to succeed his father. A tremendous power struggle ensued with the election of the short lived Pius III. Borgia was later hunted down and killed so he never occupied the Pontifical Chair. The grandson of Pope Alexander VI, Francis Borgia, later founded the Society of Zeus and Minerva.

The fourth Pius, Giovanni Angelo Medici, was Pope from 1559 to 1565. He is notable for presiding over the culmination of the Council of Trent.

Pope Pius IV presided over the last sessions of the Council of Trent.

Belief in transubstantiation was declared mandatory.

Almost every doctrine of the blessed Reformation was condemned by Pope Pius IV and the Council of Trent.

The fifth Pius, Antonio Ghislieri (1499–1565) was Pope from 1559 to 1565.

Queen Elizabeth I.
Queen Elizabeth I.
Queen from 1558 to 1603.

in 1570, Pope Pius V issued a Bull excommunicating Shake-Speare.

This Papal Thunder led to the attempted invasion of England by the "Invincible" Spanish Armada in 1588.

Pope Pius V.
Pope Pius V.
Pope from 1566 to 1572.

In 1570, Pope Pius V issued a bull entitled Regnans in Excelsis which excommunicated Queen Elizabeth. This excommunication meant that anybody poisoning her could expect to have their stay in purgatory shortened. This Papal Thunder meant that her subjects were absolved from their allegiance to the queen, and in 1588 it led to the "Invincible" Spanish Armada.

The sixth Pius, Count Giovanni Angelo Braschi (1717–1799) was Pope from 1775 to 1799. The American and French Revolutions were all about transferring the 13 British colonies, and Brazil, to Spanish sovereignty.

General Berthier

Pope Pius VI presided over the American and French Revolutions.

He was Jesuit trained and he urged Great British spy Frederick to give the banned Jesuits a refuge in Prussia.

In 1798, troops under general Berthier invaded Rome, took Pius captive, and he died in exile in France the following year.

Pope Pius VII was finally "elected" in 1800 and was totally submissive to Napoleon and his Jesuits.

At Napoleon's beck and call, he journeyed to Paris to crown Bonaparte Emperor.

In 1814, he restored the perpetually banned Jesuits.

In a Papal brief issued on August 7, 1814, this "infallible" Pope contradicted a previous "infallible" Pope:

By the same brief, we received the congregation of the Company of Jesus under our immediate protection and dependence, reserving to ourselves and our successors the prescription of everything that might appear to us proper to consolidate, to defend it, and to purge it from the abuses and corruptions that might be therein introduced; and for this purpose we expressly abrogated such apostolical constitutions, statutes, privileges, and indulgences, granted in contradiction to these concessions, especially the apostolic letters of Clement XIV., our predecessor, which begun with the words Dominus ac Redemptor Noster, only in so far as they are contrary to our brief, beginning Catholicae and which was given only for the Russian empire. (Bull of Restoration of Pope Pius VII).

The career of the eight Pius, Francesco Saverio Castiglioni (1761 - 1830) was very brief indeed lasting only a year.

Pius VIII was another victim of the poison cup.

To get rid of a recalcitrant Pope, the communion wine was sometimes poisoned and transubstantiation seemed powerless to affect any change in the deadly potion!!

Pope Pius VIII had a timely demise in order to make way for a more pliable Pope who took the name of Gregory XVI.

The ninth Pius, Giovanni Maria Mastai-Ferretti (1792–1878) needs no introduction. This Pope issued the Syllabus of Errors which totally condemned modern civilization.

The deadly Syllabus of Errors was issued by Pope Pius IX on December 8, 1864:

For the Syllabus, as appears from the official communication of Cardinal Antonelli, is a decision given by the pope speaking as universal teacher and judge to Catholics the world over. All Catholics, therefore, are bound to accept the Syllabus. Exteriorly they may neither in word nor in writing oppose its contents; they must also assent to it interiorly. ("Catholic" Encyclopedia article Syllabus).

When Rome was liberated in 1870, Pius IX refused to recognize the new Italian government and became a "prisoner of the Vatican." The keys to his vast "prison" palace were on the INSIDE and not on the OUTSIDE. Recovering the lost Papal States became his top priority.

The tenth Pius, Giuseppe Melchiorre Sarto (1835–1914) was Pope from 1903 to 1914.

Franz Xavier Wernz (1842 -1914).
Franz Xavier Wernz (1842–1914).
Jesuit general from 1906 to 1914.


This Pope worked closely with Jesuit general Franz Xavier Wernz in setting up MI5 and MI6 in Britain.

Their final goal was the dis-unification of Italy and the restoration of the Papal States at any cost.

Pius X was also a fanatical devotee of Minerva.

Pope Pius died very mysteriously on the very eve of World War I. He was followed by Pope Benedict XV who never condemned the horrible 4-year slaughter in the trenches of France. That war failed to restore the Papal States.

The eleventh Pius, Ambrogio Damiano Achille Ratti (1857–1939) was Pope from 1922 to 1939.

Benito Mussolini
Benito Mussolini.
Dictator from 1922 to 1945.

With the help of Winston Churchill and MI6, Benito Mussolini came to power in Italy.

In 1929, he gave Pope Pius 110 acres (0.44 square kilometers) which became known as Vatican City State.

Pius, with the help of his successor, Eugenio Pacelli, negotiated a Concordat with Nazi Germany in 1933.

Pope Pius X I.
Pope Pius X I.
Pope from 1922 to 1939.

This Pope had a timely demise just as he was about to publish an encyclical condemning Hitler and Nazism.

Mussolini outlawed the celebration of September 20 as a national holiday in Italy.

After his arrest in 1945, it was feared that Mussolini would reveal that he worked for MI6; so he was conveniently liquidated by MI6 agents disguised as Communist partisans.

The twelfth Pius, Eugenio Marìa Giuseppe Giovanni Pacelli, was Pope from 1939 to 1958.

Imperious Pope Pius XIII dominated the world from 1939 to 1958.

He was responsible for World War II and the subsequent Cold War that followed.

He was also responsible for the creation of the smokescreen state of "Israel" in the Mideast.

As hard as the Vatican tried not to repeat the fiasco of Pope Joan, a female Pope reigned alongside Pope Pius XII for all of his Papacy. Her name was Josephine Lehnert, and when she joined the Jesuit Holy Cross convent at the age of 15, she took the name Sister Pascalina (Pascal)!!

As imperious Pius XII dominated the world, he in turn was dominated by a Bavarian nun named Sister Pascalina (La Popessa).

This femme fatale was the mistress of Pius and was responsible for most of his appointments–especially Cardinal Spellman.

Pascalina was an MI6 agent like Adolf Hitler, spoke English fluently, and was responsible for making sure that Pius never criticized Hitler.

Pascalina met the future Pope Pius XII at a Swiss retreat house in 1917. Providentially, Pascalina was given that tough assignment after taking the veil in 1913:

Into this Swiss retreat house there came one day in 1917, when Pascalina was not yet twenty-three, a prelate in seriously ailing health, a cold and rather uncommunicative Italian named Eugenio Pacelli, a mystic with piercing black eyes and emaciated yet arresting features. All the nuns held Pacelli in great awe, as he was a great power within the Vatican's highest inner circle and a close friend to the Pope himself. This clergyman was so well respected in Rome that, at forty-one, he was already an archbishop, and though not yet secretary of state, he was the official in charge of the Vatican's foreign office. (Murphy, La Popessa, p. 40).

In 1930, Pascalina joined Eugenio Pacelli at the Vatican, and from that time onward the couple were inseparable. All the other members of the Vatican Curia hated and feared her, but she was untouchable because of her British Secret Service protection.

The all powerful Pontiff could not do one thing: run his fingers through Pascalina's hair, because, as a nun, her hair was shorn.

After her expulsion from the Vatican in 1958, Sister Pascalina led a crusade to make her lover, whom she called "Holiness," a SAINT!!

Unfortunately, the MI6 files on Pascalina are sealed until 2045, so all we really know about this spy is what she told her biographer, Paul I. Murphy.

Pope Pius ruled the U.S. State Department and U.S. foreign policy through Cardinal Spellman–the American Pope!!

Pope Pius XII was Time Man

of the Year in 1954.

Cardinal "Moneybags" Spellman worked closely with President Roosevelt in coordinating the U.S. invasion of Italy in 1943.

Spellman was military vicar of the U.S. armed forces, and twice during the 1950's he brought the world to the brink of nuclear war.

He expected to succeed Pius XII after the Pope's timely demise in 1958, and he would have taken the name Pius XIII in honor of his mentor.

On November 1, 1950, Pope Pius dogmatically defined that Minerva was assumed bodily into heaven and crowned "queen of heaven."

In this painting by Tizian, we see the "virgin" Athena or Minerva carried up into heaven, with Zeus above, waiting to crown her "queen of heaven."

This pagan myth, and counterfeit of Christ's Resurrection and Ascension, was declared dogma by Pope Pius XII in 1950.

After the timely death of Pius XII in 1958, his imperious policy was replaced by the Trojan Horse ecumenical movement, and Cardinal Spellman was persona non grata at the Vatican.

Will the Last Pope be Pius XIII???

To most people in the world, the number 13 is considered "unlucky" . . . but not to the Vatican....The Book of Esther contains a fantastic end of the world scenario. Haman, a type of the Papacy, was determined to destroy all the Jews in the Persian empire. He consulted his horoscope for 12 months to find the lucky day for the Final Solution:

In the first month, that is the month Nisan, in the twelfth year of king Ahasuerus (Xerxes), they cast Pur, that is the horoscope, before Haman from day to day, and from month to month, to the twelfth month, that is the month Adar (Esther 3:7).

The Persian word Pur means casting a horoscope or divination by astrology:

You are wearied in the multitude of your counsels; let now the astrologers, the stargazers, and the monthly prognosticators stand up and save you from what shall come upon you (Isaiah 47:13).

The English word prognosticate, from the Latin prognosticum, means to augur, foretell, or vaticinate. Before Galileo "discovered" that the earth was rotating and not the center of the universe, horoscopes were all the rage at the Vatican.

Haman's horoscope told him that the 13th day of the 12th month would be the "lucky day" for the Jewish holocaust:

And the letters were sent by posts into all the king's provinces, to destroy, to kill, and to cause to perish, all Jews, both young and old, little children and women, in one day, even upon the thirteenth day of the twelfth month, which is the month Adar, and to take the spoil of them for a prey (Esther 3:13).

After just 3 days of fasting and prayer, our Great JEHOVAH frustrated all of Haman's wicked plans so that he ended up hanging from the gallows which he had constructed to hang Mordechai:

JEHOVAH is known by the judgment which he executeth: the wicked are snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah (Psalm 9:16).
