The previous pope cannot leave his retirement and therefore also had to be brought to Castel Gandolfo (a Vatican enclave) with a helicopter. When he enters Italian ground he cannot be sure whether he is not getting arrested for possible charges brought against him, as then Pinochet in London. Read more:

Today I read a passage in an article which quite nicely describes the decline of power of the Vatican.

The former pope is imprisoned in the Vatican and cannot get out there because the danger exists that he gets arrested.

Efforts to arrest the pope were there for example 2010 when the pope visited Engand.

Here an extract of what I read today:

The previous pope looks forward to a peaceful old age from where he evidently hopes to remote control his successor. Though also he cannot leave his retirement and therefore also had to be brought to Castel Gandolfo (a Vatican enclave) with a helicopter. When he enters Italian ground he cannot be sure whether he is not getting arrested for possible charges brought against him, as then Pinochet in London.

Here some more information to this just mentioned effort to arrest the pope. It comes from 2010 Aug 12 – Joseph Ratzinger resisted the unfrocking of a paedophile priest:

Richard Dawkins planning to have Pope Benedict arrested over 'crimes against humanity'

Richard Dawkins, the atheist campaigner and evolutionist, is planning to have Pope Benedict XVI arrested when he comes to Britain later this year for "crimes against humanity".

Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens, the atheist author, are seeking advice from human rights lawyers as to what legal action can be taken against the pope over his alleged cover-up of sexual abuse in the Catholic church.

It emerged this weekend that in 1985 when he was in charge of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, which deals with sex abuse cases, the pope signed a letter arguing that the “good of the universal church” should be considered against the defrocking of an American priest who committed sex offences against two boys.

Dawkin and Hitchens believe he should face criminal proceedings because his "first instinct" was to protect the church rather than the children in its care.

They are hoping to exploit the same legal principle used to arrest Augusto Pinochet, the late Chilean dictator, on a Spanish warrant when he visited Britain in 1998.

The Pope will be visit London, Glasgow and Coventry, during his time in the UK between September 16 and 19.

“This is a man whose first instinct when his priests are caught with their pants down is to cover up the scandal and damn the young victims to silence," Dawkins, who wrote The God Delusion, said.

“This man is not above or outside the law. The institutionalised concealment of child rape is a crime under any law and demands not private ceremonies of repentance or church-funded payoffs, but justice and punishment," Hitchens, author of God Is Not Great, said.

Their lawyers, barrister Geoffrey Robertson and Mark Stephens, a solicitor, believe they can ask the Crown prosecution Service and that Pope Benedict will not be able to claim diplomatic immunity since he is not the head of a state recognised by the United Nations.

“There is every possibility of legal action against the Pope occurring,” said Stephens. “Geoffrey and I have both come to the view that the Vatican is not actually a state in international law. It is not recognised by the UN, it does not have borders that are policed and its relations are not of a full diplomatic nature.”

For a former pope the possibility of being arrested is considerably greater because he is no longer "head of state". The Vatican has now become his prison. A nice picture for a once so powerful Vatican. The pope sits in his own prison.

Jesus Christ has expressed himself to this decline of power of the Vatican. This was brought in Antichrist jl.ev08.047.

Here the corresponding extract:

Chapter 047 of Volume 8 of the work "The Great Gospel of John" (1851-1864) by Jakob Lorber (1800-1864).

After a time of a quarter of an hour, in which we all looked at the morning scenes with much attention, I said to all those present: "Now first pay well attention to all that still will show itself orderly pictorially before the rising of the sun because I want it that also you shall see with your eyes how everything will take shape in the last times of the new paganism!"
Now all turned their eyes with double attention towards the east. It was still a good half hour time until the full sunrise and so still a few pictures could develop before the eyes of the watching disciples.
First one could see a dense and completely black fog to rise far from the horizon. As this fog had reached about the sevenfold height of the mountains of the horizon, it soon became like glowing; because it was flashed across by a host of lightnings, that is why all those present thought that an awful thunderstorm was raging there.
But I said: "Worry about something else because except us no-one sees one bit of this phenomenon.
After that again with all calmness it was observed what else will follow on later.
And see, a great city appeared on the uppermost edge of the black fog that was glowed through by many lightnings! And I said: "Look at that picture of the new Babylon!"
Then said Agrikola: "Lord; that has an important resemblance to our Rome! But I notice many ruins all around but in the immediate city together with the old buildings, which are only too well known to me, also well many new buildings and temples, which gables are strangely enough decorated with crosses. What well does that mean?"
Say I: "See, that is the downfall of the old and at the same time the beginning of the new paganism! About already in 500-600 years, counted from now on, it will literally look like that there. But now only carry on observing the thing!"
Again all focussed their attention on that thing, which scenes developed quickly one after the other. And see, one saw great marches of peoples and many bad fights and wars and in the middle of the city one saw something rising high like a mountain! On the mountain stood a high and great throne, looking like being of glowing gold. On the throne sat with a stick, which topmost end was decorated with a threefold cross, a ruler with a threefold crown on the head. From his mouth innumerable arrows went out and out of his eyes and out of his chest flashed just as innumerable lightnings of rage and of highest arrogance. And kings wandered to him, many of whom bowed deepest before him. The ones who so bowed before him, he looked at friendly and confirmed their power; but those who did not bow before him, they were pursued and badly injured by his arrows and lightnings. Here said Agrippa: "Lord, that does not give a good example for the later rulers of the new Babylon! It well seems that their power will be a still greater one, but also one that is far more terrible than it is now. Because now only the worst criminals are punished with the cross but only with the single one; but that one even holds a threefold one in his sovereign hand even against all other kings! Lord and master, explain that to us a little!"
I said: "That represents no special ruler over many countries and people but only the visible personality of the Antichrist. But the threefold cross describes my teaching, which will be forced on the kings and their peoples there threefold falsified: false in the word, false in truth and false in the living application.
But the kings, which do not bow before him, and which he curses, they are the ones who still remain more or less in the truth of the old teaching. His arrows and lightnings well reach them but they still do no harm of some relevance to them. - But now observe further the thing; because I can only show you the main moments through it!"
All looked at it again now with increased attention.
(The Lord:) "And see, many kings, which previously still deepest bowed before him who sits on the throne, gather their war hosts to go against him! See, there is an embittered fight and his magnificent throne already sinks a great deal deeply down to the city and you only see some kings, which, so pro forma only, bow before him, but while from the many others, which defected from him, now many arrows and lightnings are sent back to him. But now almost nothing is anymore seen of him and that is going to happen already after 1000 till 1500 till 1600 and 1700 years.
But now look again at it! See, he makes attempts to get up once more, surrounded by black hordes, and some kings give him their hands to help him; but see, who do that soon become utterly helpless and their peoples tear the crowns from their head and give them to the strong kings! And see! Now his throne sinks and the strong kings come running and divide it into several parts and so now for him all his power, height and greatness fall! He well still hurls arrows and dull lightnings around him but they no longer damage anyone; because most of them return back on himself and wound him and his dull and dark hordes."

Joseph Ratzinger is imprisoned. He was sent to prison for life. His crimes have caught up with him.
