Pope 'won't visit Shoah museum'
Benedict to skip WWII 'silence' pope exhibit
(ANSA) - Vatican City, March 6 - Pope Benedict XVI's trip to the Holy land in May will not take in Israel's Holocaust museum where WWII pope Pius XII is accused of silence on the Holocaust, the Israeli ambassador to the Holy See told ANSA Friday.
Speaking after reports that the Pius XII exhibit might be changed ahead of the May 8-15 trip, Ambassador Mordechai Levy said Benedict would attend a memorial ceremony at the Yad Vashem site but would not visit the museum itself.
Levy said the pope, accompanied by Israeli President Shimon Peres, would light a remembrance fire and make a speech ...
So according to reports, Benedict will sanctify the Yad Vashem Temple, but will not visit the Yad Vashem museum. He apparently protests slander against Pius XII while sanctifying a false religion which threatens to replace Calvary. See: Bad Advice from the Pope
But look at this:
... Earlier on Friday, Catholic sources in Jerusalem voiced hope the Pius 'silence' caption could be changed to avoid embarrassing Benedict.
They were speaking after the announcement of a debate on the controversial pope, who is on track to become a saint, at Yad Vashem on Sunday and Monday.
The symposium, which will take place largely behind closed doors, will look at Pius in the light of the latest historical evidence.
Organisers say the conference will see ''if there is something new or something which has to be completely revised'' in light of recent research by Jewish and Catholic scholars ...
My goodness. Could it be that the Vatican and Yad Vashem might engage in that wicked practice: historical debate in light of new evidence to determine if something needs to be revised--revisionism--the very "crime" that Bishop Williamson is threatened with banishment and imprisonment for?
You see, Pius XII's "silence" has not yet been canonized as the "Six Million" and the "Execution Gas Chambers" have been. Speak up while you have the chance. Once the Sanhedrin has ruled, anyone who speaks contrary is anathema.
But I ask people to have true perspective on this. The establishment has framed the matter so that Pius XII's legacy and prospects as a canonized saint will stand or fall based entirely upon whether he was "good for the 'Jews'" (the principle all things are judged by today). There has been no serious discussion on whether Pius XII could have done more for the Christians suffering under "Uncle Joe" Stalin, and other criteria that a pope or saint would traditionally be judged by.
