Bergoglio: And then, what I did, I do not know. They made me stand up. They made me asked me if I agreed. I said yes. I do not know if they made me swear on something, I do not remember. . I was at peace. I went to change my vestments. And I went out and I wanted to go first to greet Cardinal Diaz, who was there in his wheelchair and after I greeted the other cardinals. Then I asked the vicar of Rome and Cardinal Hummes to accompany me. Something that was not planned in the protocol.

Falsification of Matthew 16: 18 man-made papacy. Archbishop Ganswein: “Therefore, from 11 February 2013, the papal ministry is not the same as before,” “He (Pope Benedict XVI) left the Papal Throne and yet, with the step he took on 11 February 2013, he has not abandoned this ministry,” Gänswein explained, something "quite impossible after his irrevocable acceptance of the office in April 2005.“ Archbishop Ganswein added that this is why Benedict XVI “has not given up his name”, unlike Pope Celestine V who reverted to his name Pietro da Marrone, “nor the white cassock.”
“Therefore he has also not retired to a monastery in isolation but stays within the Vatican — as if he had taken only one step to the side to make room for his successor and a new stage in the history of the papacy.” With that step, he said, he has enriched the papacy with “his prayer and his compassion placed in the Vatican Gardens.”

Falsification of Matthew 16: 18 man-made papacy:
Jorge Bergoglio with Valentina Alazraki, from the Mexican broadcaster Televisa.
VALENTINA: You also told us that will follow the example of Pope Benedict ... This changes a bit 'the idea of the papacy, because we used that the pope was an institution created by the Holy Spirit and to the death.
BERGOGLIO- "There were SOME CARDINALS who PRIOR TO THE CONCLAVE , in the general congregations, probed the very interesting, very rich THEOLOGICAL PROBLEM. I think that what Pope Benedict did has been to open a door. 60 years ago there were no emeritus bishops. And now we have 1400. They came to the idea that a man after 75, or close to that age, cannot carry the weight of a particular church. In general I think what Benedict so courageously did was to open the door to the Popes emeritus. Benedict should not be considered an exception, but an institution. Maybe he will be the only one for a long time, maybe he will not be the only one. But an institutional door has been opened. Today the Pope Emeritus is no longer a rarity since a door for him to exist as a figure has been opened".
VALENTINA: Can you imagine a situation where a Pope retires at 80 as is the case with bishops?
BERGOGLIO- "I can. However, I do not really like the idea of an age limit. Because I believe that the Papacy is a kind of last instance. It is a special grace. For some theologians the Papacy is a sacrament. The Germans are VERY CREATIVE IN ALL THESE THINGS . I do not think so, but I want to say that it is something special.

And speaking of the Curia BERGOGLIO says: "I think this is the LAST COURT that remains in Europe. The others have been democratized, even the most classic among them. There is something in the papal court that maintains a somewhat atavistic tradition. And I do not say this in a derogatory way, it is a question of culture. This must be changed, the appearance of a court can be maintained, while being a working group at the service of the Church. At the service of the bishops"
