The role of the Vatican in official disclosure of the existence of extraterrestrial life has recently come into renewed focus with two related developments on June 14. The first is an interfaith initiative by multiple world religious leaders, including Pope Francis, to promote friendship and unity across diverse faith communities through a joint statement.
According secret space program whistleblower, Corey Goode, Pope Francis and other world leaders have been contacted by a group of four human-looking extraterrestrial civilizations that are encouraging them to unify as a prelude to the establishment of a new global religion.
The second development was the synchronistic June 14 release of an alleged Majestic-12 Document describing four groups of extraterrestrials known to the military intelligence community, including one that is human-looking and friendly. It states that formal diplomatic relations began with the human-looking group during the Eisenhower administration, and secretly continues to the present day.
When it comes to the role of the Vatican and extraterrestrial life, it is important to point out that the Catholic Church has long played a leading role in secret diplomatic relations with extraterrestrials, dating back at least from the post-World War II era. This has involved high-level cooperation with the U.S. military intelligence community.
In February 1954, Cardinal Francis MacIntyre represented the Catholic Church at the first official meeting with human-looking extraterrestrials [called “Etherians” at the time] that occurred at Edwards Air Force Base. The meeting was described at length by a leading metaphysical teacher at the time, Mead Layne, and is worth repeating in full:
My dear friends: I have just returned from Muroc [Edwards Air Force Base]. The report is true — devastatingly true! I made the journey in company with Franklin Allen of the Hearst papers and Edwin Nourse of Brookings Institute (Truman’s erstwhile financial advisor) and Bishop MacIntyre of L.A. (confidential names for the present, please). When we were allowed to enter the restricted section (after about six hours in which we were checked on every possible item, event, incident and aspect of our personal and public lives), I had the distinct feeling that the world had come to an end with fantastic realism. For I have never seen so many human beings in a state of complete collapse and confusion, as they realized that their own world had indeed ended with such finality as to beggar description. The reality of the ‘other plane’ aeroforms is now and forever removed from the realms of speculation and made a rather painful part of the consciousness of every responsible scientific and political group. During my two days’ visit I saw five separate and distinct types of aircraft being studied and handled by our Air Force officials — with the assistance and permission of the Etherians! I have no words to express my reactions. It has finally happened. It is now a matter of history. President Eisenhower, as you may already know, was spirited over to Muroc one night during his visit to Palm Springs recently. And it is my conviction that he will ignore the terrific conflict between the various ‘authorities’ and go directly to the people via radio and television — if the impasse continues much longer. From what I could gather, an official statement to the country is being prepared for delivery about the middle of May.
Unfortunately, the planned May 1954 disclosure never happened. It would become one of many possible extraterrestrial disclosure announcements that would come and go over the next decades, some of which involved the Vatican in a prominent role, as we will see.
1982 British tabloid story on Eisenhower ET Meeting
In the United States, disclosure was firmly under the control of the national security establishment who did not view it as helpful to the national interest, which was viewed through the myopic lens of building bigger and more destructive weapons arsenals with the aid of major U.S. military contractors. It is highly doubtful that the Vatican shared these “hard power” goals, given its traditional focus on “soft power” in terms of associating the church with progressive ideas such as social justice, eradicating global poverty, religious tolerance, etc.
Secret diplomatic relations with extraterrestrials continued, according to the recently leaked Majestic 12 Assessment document. A follow-up meeting was held in July 1954, five months after the groundbreaking Edwards AFB meeting. It was here that Eisenhower allegedly established full diplomatic relations with the human-looking extraterrestrial visitors. The MJ-12 document states:
“In so far as no threat, either implied nor expressed and either of a military, civil or societal nature has been forwarded by the visitation of the association of visiting extraterrestrials against the governments and the peoples of these United States of America; and in so far as great and many cultural and technical advances have been derived by such exchange, we hereby grant full, complete diplomatic status and recognition to these individuals from beyond our world. Furthermore, let it be known that we seek to provide shelter, comfort and aid in all their peaceful endeavors so far as these are respective of the laws of our land and the right to self-determination and free will expressed in our national constitution. And until such time as the objectives or methods of either parties in this agreement shall deem otherwise, this bond between our peoples shall remain in effect.” [p. E-5-of-6]
The preceding diplomatic treaty was drafted by the directorate of the MAJESTIC-12 operation and a joint committee of extra-terrestrial visitors and representatives of the U.S. Diplomatic Corps, as a statement of intent. It was ratified and signed at Kirtland Air Force Base, Texas on July the eighteenth, 1954 by President Dwight D. Eisenhower and an individual on the behalf of the EBE’s. [p. E-6-of-6]
The Majestic document has multiple anomalies, security markings, spelling errors, etc., that has led many UFO researchers to dismiss it as a hoax. Nevertheless, the document has much in it that appears accurate from a historical perspective. This suggests that the document was intended to achieve a specific purpose by releasing factually accurate information together with anomalies that could lead to it being easily dismissed through plausible deniability.
As to what this purpose of the Majestic document is, we need to consider the portion that reviews four types of extraterrestrial life known to the Defense Intelligence Agency in 1989, when the briefing document was allegedly prepared:
There are four basic types of EBEs so-far confirmed. And they are listed here in descending order of their influences on our planet.
A. Earth-like humanoids. There are several variations more-or-less like ourselves. The majority of these are friendly and are the bulk of our EBE contacts. Most have a high degree of psychic ability and all use science and engineering of an advanced nature.
B. Small humanoids or “Grays”. The Grays, so–called for the hue of their skin possessed by most of this type, are a sort of drone…. They are mostly under the psychic control of the Earth-like humanoids who raise them like pets (or a kind of slave). Assuming the Greys are under benign control, they are harmless.
C. Non-humaoid EBEs. …. Many of these are dangerous not for organized hostile intentions, but because such creatures do not hold human life as sacred…. Thus far, contact has been minimal with only a handful of unfortunate encounters.
D. Transmorphic Entities. …. In essence these entities are composed of pure mind energies. … They are said (by other EBEs) to be capable of taking on any physical form that they “channel” their energy … as matter.
What is highly significant is that the document suggests that human-looking extraterrestrials are the most-friendly of the four extraterrestrial groups identified, and are therefore more reliable partners for diplomatic relations and long-term agreements.
The Vatican’s history of diplomatic relations with extraterrestrials, conducted secretly while coordinating with the US military, also involved non-official channels. One of these included the famous contactee, George Adamski.
Adamski claims to have been a contactee with a “Nordic” human-looking extraterrestrial group. He regularly briefed Pentagon officials about his contacts that began in 1952. In addition, Adamski says he secretly met with Pope John XXIII in 1963. UFO Researchers such as Desmond Leslie have reviewed Adamski’s claims in this regard, and found them to be factually correct.
In 1952, George Adamski claims that he met with an extraterrestrial who emerged from a landed flying saucer. Six witnesses signed affidavits about Adamski’s encounter.
Apparently, Adamski passed on messages and coordinated one or more secret meetings between Pope John XXIII and the Nordics who wished the Pope to promote a more tolerant and inclusive Catholic religion. This occurred simultaneously with the Pope convening the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965), which is widely acknowledged for modernizing the practice of Catholicism and bringing it into the 20th century.
It is important to keep in mind the significance of this scenario in terms of a reformist Pope being willing to fundamentally alter Catholic practices and theology, as a result of secret diplomatic relations with extraterrestrials.
Decades later, in February 2008, the Catholic Church allegedly played a prominent role in secret United Nations discussions about disclosing the reality of extraterrestrial life. It was claimed that as a result of these discussions, the Catholic Church would lead the way in promoting more openness on the issue of UFOs and extraterrestrial life.
This alleged development at the United Nations coincided with the head of the Vatican Astronomical Observatory, Father Gabriel Funes, giving an interview which was titled, “The Alien is my Brother”, which was published by the Vatican’s daily newspaper, L’Osservatore Romano on May 13, 2008.
While the existence of the secret UN discussions in 2008 continues to be hotly debated, the timing of the Funes’ interview does make it plausible that these events did occur as independent whistleblowers claimed. What boosts the credibility of these whistleblower claims is Goode’s recent comments that he was told by his sources that a disclosure initiative did indeed take place in 2008, and the Vatican was a key player.
There have been many subsequent developments since 2008 where the Vatican has sponsored Astrobiology conferences, starting from 2009, on the scientific and social implications of extraterrestrial life. Vatican astronomers have also been very active in publicly exploring issues such as “can extraterrestrials be baptized” as exemplified in a 2014 book by Brother Guy Consolmagno titled, Would You Baptize an Extraterrestrial?
All these developments clearly point to the conclusion that prominent officials in the Vatican hierarchy have been laying the foundation for preparing Catholics around the world for startling revelations about extraterrestrial life, and major church reforms that will emerge as a result.
The unprecedented retirement of a sitting Pontiff, Pope Benedict XVI, who was part of a more hardline conservative Catholic Church faction, and his replacement on February 28, 2013 by the more liberal progressive Pope Francis I appears to be part of this covert preparation process.
On October 27, 2014, Pope Francis issued a statement where he referred to extraterrestrials, using the euphemism “beings of the universe”, as playing a key role in God’s evolutionary plan:
When we read in Genesis the account of creation, we risk imagining God as a magician, with a wand able to make everything. But it is not so…. He created beings and allowed them to develop according to the internal laws that he gave to each one, so that they were able to develop and to arrive at their fullness of being. He gave autonomy to the beings of the universe at the same time at which he assured them of his continuous presence, giving being to every reality. And so creation continued for centuries and centuries, millennia and millennia, until it became which we know today, precisely because God is not a demiurge or a magician, but the creator who gives being to all things. [emphasis added]
Here Pope Francis has laid the foundation for something previously unthinkable to occur in Catholic Church theology. Extraterrestrials may have acted as an intermediary in the evolution of humanity and therefore in the establishment of Christianity and other religious traditions.
This meant that ancient astronaut claims that extraterrestrial visitors had bio-engineered and/or helped human civilizations evolve since ancient times, were views that are now perfectly compatible with Catholic Church theology according to Pope Francis’ statement on evolution.
Consequently, it is very feasible that the Vatican is secretly working behind the scenes with one or more extraterrestrial races in laying the groundwork for future disclosures that will facilitate the establishment of a global religion. This will introduce a cosmic perspective based on new information provided by the friendly human-looking extraterrestrials.
The Friendship and Unity statement may therefore be a very tangible prelude to a new global faith emerging in the near future. The almost simultaneous release of the alleged Majestic-12 document on June 14 is very significant in light of its clear endorsement of human-looking extraterrestrials as friends and diplomatic partners.
Pope Francis and world religious leaders that signed Friendship and Unity Statement
The timing of the release of the Majestic-12 document suggests a significant degree of “behind the scenes” cooperation between the U.S. military intelligence community and the Vatican in laying the foundation for disclosure and subsequent diplomatic relations with human looking extraterrestrials.
The prospect that Pope Francis and other religious leaders may be collaborating with extraterrestrial visitors to promote a new global religion has predictably led to much concern. Is this something to be welcomed or opposed? Are the extraterrestrials working behind the scenes with religious leaders to be trusted or not? Is this effort to establish a new global religion part of an officially sanctioned effort by the U.S. military intelligence community to disclose some, but not all, information about extraterrestrial life and secret space programs? All these questions are worth serious consideration.
To be continued.
