Benedict XVI, July 24, 2009 Homily at Vespers: “The role of the priesthood is to consecrate the world so that it may become a living host, a liturgy: so that the world may not be something alongside the reality of the world, but that the world itself shall becomes a living host, a liturgy. This is also the great vision of Teilhard de Chardin: in the end we shall achieve a true cosmic liturgy, where the cosmos becomes a living host. And let us pray the Lord to help us become priests in this sense...” 
When he praises the apostate Teilhard de Chardin’s “great vision,” Benedict XVI is praising pantheistic evil.
L’ Osservatore Romano Review of ‘Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince’ by Gaetano Vallini: “Nine years have passed since his first adventure and Harry Potter must face challenges far beyond his powers. Magic is no longer the intriguing pastime of the early days; the perilous and frightening trials to be overcome are no longer adventures for children, albeit special ones endowed with exceptional powers. Now – as was the case especially in the preceding installment – life is truly at risk and the stakes are very high. They must prevent the forces of darkness from prevailing… In cinemas across the world, released by Warner Bros. Pictures on 15 July, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince - which also inaugurated the Giffoni Festival on 12 July – is proving to be the most successful film in the series… the tone of the narrative has, to the film’s advantage, also matured. This is partly thanks to the work of the producer David Yates who also directed the fifth film in the series, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, and to the scriptwriter, Steve Kloves, who adapted the first four books. In the film, among other things, the mixture of supernatural suspense and romance achieves the right balance, making the protagonists adventures – with Harry, Ron, Hermione and the other students of Hogwarts beginning to feel the passions of youth – even more credible… What with lovers quarrels and games of Quidditch, the story continues as Harry Potter attempts to earn the teacher’s trust and continues his quest for the secret of Voldemort’s immortality. This will even lead him to a sort of descent into Hades, having crossed a lake full of Inferi, which are reanimated corpses. At the end of the film we discover, as the enthusiastic readers of the saga well know – that the young wizard will be left alone during the battle after a tragic handing over of responsibilities. But to know if he will succeed in completing his mission, we shall have to wait for the next two films into which Rowling’s last book has been divided… the demarcation line between those who do good and those who do evil seems very clear, and the spectator or reader identifies with the former. In this most recent film in particular the distinction is even clearer. It conveys to viewers that it is right to do good and makes them realize that this sometimes demands both great effort and sacrifice.”
This review (in Benedict XVI’s own newspaper) certainly endorses this satanic film. The reviewer is clearly promoting the film when he says that we can learn good things from it. The official MPAA rating for this film states, among other things, that it contains “mild sensuality.” Here are a few lines from Dan Nordgren, an independent film reviewer:
“Every parent out there should be on full alert, as the latest movie in the series is entitled Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince and is the equivalent of letting your child snort cocaine and then go to a pornographic version of a Ozzy Osborne concert. The film kicks off the sinful sixth year at ‘Hogwarts’, a church of Satan where the film’s protagonists learn anti-Christian chants and teachings. This naturally serves the Hollywood atheist agenda of making our children disillusioned with our nation’s Lord and Savior… This movie starts off in typical Wiccan fashion. Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) comes across a sorcerer’s book that is written by a mysterious person named the ‘Half Blood Prince’ (aka Satan). Instead of burning this book in a fire, just like any decent person should immediately do to any work written by Mr. JK Rowling, Harry Potter makes a deal with the devil and starts performing the book’s magic. All of his wizard friends become impressed with his new ‘level’ of being able to perform dark arts and blood rituals, including a new professor on the rostrum named Slughorn… Some scenes between Harry, Ron, Hermione and Ginny were so dirty and full of teen-dating/relationship innuendo that I nearly got up and left the screening several times… After enduring the 2 1/2 hour long sin hormones fest that is Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, I fail to see why any good parent would let their innocent son or daughter into the theater to see this film. While the film is masterfully shot in deep, muted ways that would make Satan feel right at home, it shines bright with the sparkling luster of sugar-coated sin. Moral Rating:S (strong>Sinister) for blood rituals, sexual innuendo, teenage dating, magic chants, anti-Christian agenda, Wiccan witchcraft, teen kissing, magic, promotes homogay agenda, fantasy violence, inappropriate rating of PG (should be R)”
This review drives home quite well why the Harry Potter film is satanic. The film promotes witchcraft, impurity, and apostasy from the Catholic faith. But the apostate antichrist Benedict XVI endorses the film via the glowing review that his newspaper gave to it. This is why we saw many headlines stating things like:
“Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince praised by the Vatican”
“Vatican Paper Heaps Praise on Harry Potter film”
“Pope praises Harry Potter”
L’ Osservatore Romano Review of Bruce Springsteen’s July 19, 2009 Concert called “the Boss builds a house of soul” by Gaetano Vallini: “A Bruce Springsteen concert is a sure thing, an event from which it would be difficult to leave disappointed. Three hours of good rock, full of grit and bravura, are guaranteed… Even if the ingredients change, the result is always an intriguing alchemy of music and lyrics… But beyond all this, Rome was finally able to hear Springsteen in an appropriate space, and the crowd went home satisfied.”
