CORRUPTION OF PAPACY

***

Vacant papacy

Boniface hardly a Pope

Reform is coming

***

NOTE: Saint Peter harshly criticizes Pop Boniface VIII, even saying that the papacy is vacant because Boniface VIII is unworthy of being called a Pope. He even says that Boniface VIII’s corruption has turned the papacy into a sewer. A real Pope does not value gold and silver and does not engage in hurtful politics. Saint Peter also says that reform is coming. The photograph shows the tomb of Pope Boniface VIII.
