Giovanni Battista Enrico Antonio Maria Montini (September 26, 1897August 6, 1978), better known as Pope Paul VI and known to some traditional Catholics as Paul the Sick, was an Italian cleric who led the heretical Vatican II Church as an Anti-Pope. His supports claim that reigned as "Pope of the Catholic Church" and he was de facto head of Vatican City from 1963 to 1978. Succeeding Angelo Roncalli, who had convened the Second Vatican Council; a robber council; he decided to continue its process to much controversy. He promoted the ecumenical agenda with Orthodox, Anglicans and other Protestants, which resulted in a number of historic meetings and agreements.

Biography

Montini served in the Vatican’s State Department from 1922 to 1954. While in the State Department, Montini and Domenico Tardini were considered as the closest and most influential co-workers of Pope Pius XII, who named him in 1954 Archbishop of the largest Italian dioceses, Milan, a function which made him automatically Secretary of the Italian Bishops Conference. John XXIII elevated him to the College of Cardinals in 1958, and after his death, Montini was considered the favourite successor.[citation needed]

He took on the name Paul, to indicate a renewed worldwide mission to spread the message of Christ. He re-opened the Second Vatican Council, which was automatically closed with the death of John XXIII and gave it both priorities and direction. After the Council concluded its work, Paul VI took charge of the interpretation and implementation of its mandates, often walking a thin line between the conflicting expectations of various groups within the Catholic Church. The magnitude and depth of the attacks on the Catholic faith, undermining all areas of Church life, including the Mass during his pontificate exceeded similar anti-Catholic policies of his alleged predecessors and successors, with the possible exception of Karol Wojtyka.

Paul VI was a Marian devotee, speaking repeatedly to Marian congresses and mariological meetings, visiting Marian shrines and issuing three Marian encyclicals. Following his famous predecessor Ambrose of Milan, he named Mary to be the Mother of the Church during the Vatican Council. Montini sought the "dialogue" with the apostate world, with other Christians, religions, atheism, excluding nobody. He saw himself as a humble servant for a "suffering humanity" and supporting globalism, demanded significant "changes" of the rich in American and Europe in favour of the poor in the Third World.

His opposed birth control and abortion (see Humanae Vitae) which led to him being criticsed by liberal eugenics in the West. His pontificate took place during sometimes revolutionary changes in the world, the student terror revolts of 1968, the Vietnam War and other upheavals. Montini is famous for his attempts to undermine the government of Francisco Franco, a loyal son of the Church, in concert with world masonry. Paul VI attempted to fellow travel with the spirit of the age, while claiming to uphold the Deposit of Faith. Montini died on 6 August 1978, the Feast of the Transfiguration. The diocesan process for beatification of Montini is alleged to have began on 11 May 1993.
