Why? And how did it come about?
As I have dealt with these matters in other articles, I refer the reader to these. But briefly: in 2008 the Jesuits elected a new general, named Adolfo Nicolas. And just a few short years later, the Jesuits saw to it that one of their own members was elected to be the pope of Rome! The reason for this was that the Roman Catholic institution, under the pontificate of Benedict XVI, was in crisis. Extraordinary times demanded extraordinary measures. There are very good reasons to believe that pressure was placed on Benedict to do the unthinkable for a pope: to resign. This he did, a papal election was held, and a high-ranking Jesuit from Argentina was elected as Pope Francis I.
And so it came to be that the Roman Catholic institution was now firmly in the hands of two Jesuits: the Jesuit general, and the pope himself. This time, it was not a case of the Jesuit black pope pulling the strings of the white pope, but of the Jesuit black pope and the Jesuit white pope! The Papacy was now in a Jesuit grip of iron. The entire Roman Catholic world was in their hands.
And the white pope was under the control of the black pope, just as has so often been the case for the past 400 years and more; only this time, the white pope was not a reluctant servant of the black pope, but a very willing one! For what must be understood is that, even though a Jesuit is now pope, he still takes his orders from the Jesuit general! Francis is a man under authority. As a Jesuit, he has sworn to obey his general in all things, without question. He became pope on his general’s orders; and he obeys his general even though he is the pope.
And at the age of 80, Adolfo Nicolas, the general of the Jesuit order, stepped down, making way for the election of his successor. This duly took place, and Arturo Sosa was chosen.

But nothing will change. Francis, as a good and obedient Jesuit, will now take orders from his new superior, Sosa. This is the man who will now rule the Vatican, and the entire Roman Catholic “Church”, from the shadows.
After his election Sosa declared: “Regarding being called the ‘black pope,’ I don’t like it.” He may not like it, and that is understandable, because this nickname tells the world something of the shadowy workings of the Jesuit general behind the papal throne. But whether he likes it or not, we should never cease using it, for it is so very apt; so very descriptive.
Sosa is a Venezuelan. He obtained a doctorate in political science before entering the Jesuit Order and being ordained a priest in 1977. He was a university president for ten years, and a director of a social studies centre for twenty years. He also served as the provincial superior of the Jesuits in Venezuela, and was responsible for the international institutions that the Jesuits have in Rome.
The fact that he is Venezuelan is very significant. Francis is from Argentina, and Sosa is from Venezuela – both South American Roman Catholic countries. The two men have known each other for a long time. Sosa stated that they met as far back as 1983, and then got to know each other better over the years, meeting at various events, such as in Argentina when Francis (then known by his real name, Jorge Bergoglio) was archbishop. Sosa stressed that he and Francis have a long and positive relationship.
Clearly, the Jesuits are seeing to it that their already iron grip over the entire “Church” is strengthened even more. For South America has been a fruitful field of Jesuit operations for decades now, particularly through the Catholic-Communist doctrine known as “liberation theology” – a doctrine which Francis has made no bones about supporting. He is a closet Communist (although not too closeted about it). The Jesuits in South America have subscribed to leftist ideology, liberation theology, etc., for a very long time now.
In describing the mission of the Jesuits worldwide, Sosa stressed that at the heart of their mission in the world is their link to the Papacy, and their willingness to obey the pope in choosing the priorities of their mission. “If you are in any location,” he said to the Jesuits, “your temptation is to see that the most important thing is to work there. But there is somebody in the Church that has that overview, and can say: ‘No, that is very important, but I need you in another part of the world.’”
