A high-ranking Vatican monsignor who is a secretary to one of Pope Francis’ closest collaborators was arrested by Vatican police after they caught him hosting a cocaine-fueled homosexual orgy in a building right next to St. Peter’s Basilica.
Monsignor Luigi Capozzi, 49, was caught by Vatican gendarmerie in a raid some two months ago that took place in the former Palace of the Holy Office.
While the top Vatican officials have been mute about the raid, Italian media broke the story last week after receiving inside information.
Vatican police allegedly caught the monsignor, whom Italian media called an “ardent supporter of Pope Francis,” after tenants in the building complained repeatedly about constant comings and goings of visitors to the building during all hours of the night. The building is currently being used by various high-ranking churchmen, including prefects, presidents, and secretaries to the Roman Curia.
Capozzi, who on his LinkedIn page calls himself an “expert in canon law and dogmatic theology,” managed to evade suspicion from Italian police by using a BMW luxury car with license plates of the Holy See, which made him practically immune to stops and searches. This privilege, usually reserved for high-ranking prelates, allowed the monsignor to transport cocaine for his frequent homosexual orgies without being stopped by the Italian police.
Italian news service Il Fato Quotidiano wrote that the building’s separate entrance into Vatican City from outside the Vatican walls made it “perfect” for clandestine activity.
At the time of the arrest, Capozzi was allegedly so high on cocaine that he was hospitalized for detoxification for a short period in the Pius XI clinic in Rome. He is currently in an undisclosed convent in Italy undergoing a spiritual retreat, Italian media reported.
Capozzi’s arrest comes on the verge of him being appointed a bishop on the recommendation of his superior Cardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio, the Vatican’s top canonical official.
Coccopalmerio, President of the Pontifical Council for the Interpretation of Legal Texts, is one of Pope Francis’ closest collaborators and ardent supporters.
Earlier this year, the Vatican’s own publishing house released a book by the Cardinal with much fanfare that defended Francis’s 2016 Exhortation Amoris Laetitia as allowing civilly-divorced-and-remarried Catholics living in adultery as well as unmarried cohabiting Catholics living in fornication to receive Holy Communion.
The fact that it was Coccopalmerio’s trusted secretary who was behind the orgies makes the Cardinal’s past declarations on the “positive elements” of gay couples take on pressing significance.
When the interviewer noted that some attendees at the Synod on the Family were tending in such a direction towards homosexuals, Coccopalmerio agreed. He then immediately went on to criticize those who feared that “valuing the positive elements” of homosexual relationships would be “undermining” the Church’s doctrine on marriage and sexuality, saying such a conclusion was “problematic.”
Michael Hichborn, president of the U.S.-based Lepanto Institute, said he highly suspects Coccopalmerio knew of the orgies.
“Given the monitoring and whispering that goes on in the Vatican, it is unlikely to the point of absurdity that Cardinal Coccopalmerio was unaware of Msgr. Capozzi’s disgusting activities. In fact, when we consider the 300-page document on the homosexual lobby that was handed to Pope Benedict XVI just before he resigned, the probability is that many who work in the Vatican were fully aware of what Capozzi was doing, and that such activities are taking place among other clergy as well,” he added.
Hichborn said that the homosexual orgy happening right next to St. Peter’s reveals a “mass apostasy” that is currently happening within the Catholic Church at the highest levels.
It is interesting to note that despite Capozzi’s arrest months ago, he is still listed as an active staff member on the website of the Pontifical Council for the Interpretation of Legal Texts.

Homosexuals should not be ordained. Homosexuals in the priesthood have done and continue to do great damage to the Church. Too many bishops are cozying up to the anti-Christian LGBT fascists in the name of misguided compassion and tolerance.
The fact that about 63% of Catholics and Americans in general approve of the self-contradicting, impossible notion of same-sex “marriage” is evidence that the Catholic laity and America in general are largely post-Christian and have incoherent worldviews.
Lastly, rational dialogue with homosexualists and their advocates is…
Sawyer …Looks like you got cut off by the character limit. “..rational dialogue with homosexualists and their advocates is…” Is what. I don’t know what a homosexualist” is, but I am a homosexual and I’m quite willing to have rational dialogue with you or anyone.
Here’s a great dialogue opener: https://www.courageouspriest.com/archbishop-chaput-called-chastity-sexual-confusion-disorder?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+courageouspriest%2FqTKF+%28Courageous+Priest%29
C&H there is no dialogue with corruption and evil that has invaded the Church.
Life site news seems to specialize in all that’s ugly in the Catholic Church. How does this ugly news help the Body of Christ? Brothers and sisters in Christ proclaim the word of God and the Gospel message of God’s love and mercy for all mankind. Repent and convert! Pray America Pray.
Grow up.There is a cancer in our Church.
Gordon, I am afraid that you are completely right.
Ever read any of the epistles of St. Paul?
The Body of Christ has been led by wolves in sheep’s clothing for some time now. High time we wake up to that fact. Better to clean house, go back to a more pure remnant and let these “wolves” go back to wherever they came from and quit feeding them and giving them honors and fealty. They don’t deserve it and we need not follow them off the proverbial cliff. Let’s get back to straightforwardness and holiness. To think that he thought that this was OK and he was going to get away with that, and the Holy See covered this up speaks volumes as to what we are dealing with with this duplicitous Pope. I am through with this guy, and held my honest and informed skepticism for a long time now. He has set himself against orthodox…
Don’t attack the messenger.
That’s right! Total impunity for all evildoers!
How does the FBI build up the United States of America? Who needs all those ugly stories about bank robbers, kidnappers, rapists? Let’s just ignore them!
Criteria for the Discernment of Vocation for Persons with Homosexual Tendencies
Homosexuality and the Ordained Ministry
– The Catechism distinguishes between homosexual acts and homosexual tendencies. Regarding acts, it teaches that Sacred Scripture presents them as grave sins. The Tradition has constantly considered them as intrinsically immoral and contrary to the natural law. Consequently, under no circumstance can they be approved.
Deep-seated homosexual tendencies, which are found in a number of men and women, are also objectively disordered… this Dicastery, in accord with the Congregation for Divine Worship…
Criteria for the Discernment of Vocation for Persons with Homosexual Tendencies
– this Dicastery, in accord with the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, believes it necessary to state clearly that the Church, while profoundly respecting the persons in question, cannot admit to the seminary or to holy orders those who practise homosexuality, present deep-seated homosexual tendencies or support the so-called “gay culture”.
Such persons, in fact, find themselves in a situation that gravely hinders them from relating correctly to men and women. One must in no way overlook the negative…
It was reported that the Conclave elected Pope Francis to take care of scandal and mismanagement at the Vatican. In this regard, he’s been a failure to date.
But he now has an excellent opportunity. He needs to quickly fire Fr. Capozzi and, MOST importantly, his boss, Cardinal Coccopalmerio. By doing this, he sends a strong message to his highest level staff that these types of behaviors are unacceptable. These cardinals will them have motive to more properly vet their staff . . . . . less they befall the same fate.
But will Pope Francis actually do this?
Puleeze, these people are cut of the same cloth. Time to say bye bye to this Pope a dope and his gang of people who want to, like Obama, fundamentally CHANGE the unchangeable, i.e., our beloved Church. By to these scallywags. BYE and good riddance!! And take the Mohoney-s of the world and half of the American bishops with them.
Don’t hold your breath.
He’d have to clean up his own order, the Jesuits, maybe first, to put an end to it. The Jesuits bankrupted their Oregon Province in 2011 paying out a Quarter Billion Dollars in (mostly homosexual) abuse settlements. They’re worm ridden with homosexuals and their supporters, and they’ve fashioned a new religion of pseudo Catholicism to hide behind with the secret agenda of normalizing their sick behavior by corrupting doctrine and the minds and morals of the sheep. To those who say Francis was elected to clean house, that was probably code speak for cleaning out remaining conservatives. JPII at least admonished the order, Francis says nothing to them and they fawn all over him..
From what I can tell, it appears that Capozzi is probably the personal secretary of Cardinal Coccopalmerio and not the Secretary of the Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts. The Secretary of the Council is listed at https://www.catholic-hierarchy.org/diocese/dxilt.html as a bishop of another name.
Can anyone confirm that this is true?
U.S. bishops’ report reaffirms link between clerical abuse scandals and homosexuality
A new report from the U.S. Bishops on the clergy sex abuse scandal highlights the importance of Vatican guidelines barring men with “deep-seated homosexual intendencies” from the priesthood
While the clerical sex abuse has often been described as pedophilia to denote prevalence of prepubescent victims, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ 2016 annual report, released last week, shows the clear link with the problem of homosexuality in the priesthood.
According to the report, 78 percent of the victims are male. And when…
the dailybeast has a sickeming update of details of the arrest. as well as the further sickening revelation that this was cdl ratzingers former apartment in the palazzo.
Thank you, for info, drewelow.
According to the “Daily Beast,” when the bust occurred by the Swiss guard unit and the Italian police– they found a big group of naked men, high on hard drugs, in Capozzi’s apt., which Cardinal Ratzinger lived in for many years, when serving the Church as Prefect of the CDF!! They hauled Capozzi to a convent which has a detox center for wayward priests. He was replaced by a new priest– and Coccopalmerio will retire, at age 80, next year– but he may be dismissed anyway, from his job. Capozzi will face drug charges, but Italy has no laws against orgies, and there were no underage men at the orgy. SICK!!!
I am going to really be SICK!! Sick to my stomach, that is! And Capozzi was soon to be made a bishop, on the recommendation of Cdl. Coccopalmerio?? Are they serious?? God help us! I read this story a couple of days ago– so terribly depressing! So, why can’t they round up and defrock all of these criminals of the clergy– and ship them all off, with a one-way ticket— to Tim-Buc-Tu?? Perhaps we will soon see lightening strike the dome of St. Peter’s, once again, as a warning!
I am with you, it sickens my heart, LM. So many will leave the Church because of these scandals. And it has caused great confusion as well. But God is GOOD and JUST and loves His people! Moreover, continue to PRAY and MAKE SACRIFICES FOR SINNERS! Just as Our Lady of Fatima proclaimed to the three children. July is the month dedicated to the Precious Blood. “Most Precious Blood of Jesus Christ, SAVE US!” (Chaplet of the Precious Blood)
I read all the gory details, in other publications— made me sick! A horrific scene, straight from the depths of Hel! A bunch of naked priests and laymen, all high on hard drugs, having gay sex orgies all night long, with lots of loud noise and loud music — in the apt. of the filthy, Satanic Msgr.Capozzi– an apt. which Pope Benedict once occupied, years ago, when he served as the Prefect of the CDF. The Church needs to cleanse this desecrated apt., with a proper ritual– and laicize and excommunicate all of the clergy involved– send them all with a one-way ticket, to Tim-Buc-Tu!! Let’s get rid of the Devil in the Church!!
“Still listed as an active staff member of a Vatican office” – “driving a luxury Vatican vehicle” and presently “at an undisclosed convent in Italy for spiritual retreat”? That tells us right there ALL we need to know. Good Lord aren’t we tired of this same old story? Dante himself couldn’t have written a worse scene!
Read the book “AA 1025: The Memoirs of a Communist Infiltration Into the Church” for a better understanding of what is happening. This was a purposeful strategy and the Pope, with his appointments of heterodox bishops and cardinals, is fulfilling the mission. He is getting rid of good, orthodox clerics and replacing them with Marxists. Satin is alive and living in the Church. We must not despair but keep praying. We have a bad pope but we’ve had bad popes before and the Church has survived. As Pope Benedict XVI said: the Church will be smaller, but stronger. And, as St. Chrysostom said: the road to hell is paved with the skulls of bishops (I paraphrase…).
Exactly, and let’s all start to wake up and object. Time for these wolves to go.
I’ve read AA1025. Eye-opener of book!
When can we expect laitization of Capozzi and dismissal of Coccopalmero? Without disciplining such aberrant behaviour, it will surely spread. What disciplinary actions have been taken at this point?
The entire pontificate of Pope Franciscus was defined by his early words about Msgr. Ricca of the Vatican: “who am I to judge?”
For one thing he was the inheritor of the 300-page secret dossier on Gay infiltration in the Church prepared by a commission of Cardinals before Benedict XVI was resigned.
And then there’s this, from 2015. The smoke of Satan has been wafting throughout the Vatican for a very long time.
A Gay Sex Harassment Case Gives a Glimpse of Vatican Orgies
“Calvieri also apparently told Baldon stories about gay orgies among priests in Rome, including many who worked in the Curia, echoing previous accusations about a gay lobby in the heart of the Holy See.”
Our Lady of Fatima warned that Russia would spread her evil (communism) around the world. Pope Leo XIII had a vision of the devil. Other visionaries have said the same thing. Because Russia was not consecrated to Our Lady the way She asked, and more devotion to the Sacred Heart was not practiced, all the diabolical disorientation has been set loose upon the Church. This latest event in Rome is a huge scandal. I pray it does not drive too many people away from the Catholic Church, but I believe it will hinder many people from becoming practicing Catholics.
You mean Jesuitism.
Please, pray for all priests from Pope Francis on down to us “lowly” retired priests. Satan never stops, and uses power, possessions, and prestige to stimulate our iniquities, that is our tendencies to sin, so that we think we can have Jesus and our sin at the same time. A certain arrogance is present with the power and prestige associated with many of us, especially those raised to higher rank. You see it in the changing of doctrine through the changing of “pastoral practice”, etc. Where there are problems with doctrine, there are problems below the waist. Pray for us by name as will I for Fr. Capozzi who has fallen, that he be lifted up in chastity and restored to grace.
Thank you Father and I will pray for you and Fr. Capozzi and all priests.
Father Rich I pray for you daily and others by name up to Pope Francis. I found though that I didn’t actually pray for the ones by name who seemed to be heterodox and personally I didn’t like or look at. I realize though that I must pray especially for them.
When this pope stepped out onto the balcony, I knew things would be wrong when he said “Bona Sera” instead of ” Laudatur Jesus Christus”. Since occupying the Chair of St. Peter, he has not knelt for the Consecration or Benediction; had a sports car exhibit in the Sistine Chapel and said Mass in a Vatican factory , and has written and said many things contrary to the faith. Now he wants to end the permission of all priests, except SSPX priests, to say the Tridentine Mass. This latest scandal of sodomy and drug use, together with the above facts are not helping to build up the Mystical Body of Christ. Instead the Church is dying quickly of the cancer known as modernism which this pontificate is totally endorsing
Cardinal Coccopalmerio is a “good old boy” brought up in the pre-Vatican II Church. This kind of nonsense was going on during Benedict XVI’s papacy as well. Pope Francis has a real mess on his hands and very few people he can trust. Pray for Pope Francis…and the Church!
The Pre-V2 good old boys are exactly the Jacobins who engineered V2 in a grand scheme to shift attention away from their perversions. That’s right, they never went away, and that was by design. Of course they also gained enough cover in the ensuing years to recruit quite a few new similarly-minded sexual deviants to the new Church which is so “welcoming.” When their numbers got big enough they were able to elect a modernist Jesuit pope and now they’ve got the keys to the kingdom, or so they think.

San Francisco’s Gay Icon Larry Brinkin Guilty of Felony Child Porn Possession https://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/michael-w-chapman/san-francisco-s-gay-icon-larry-brinkin-guilty-felony-child-porn
WARNING: Some of the language in this story is graphic and disturbing.
St.Basil of Caesarea wrote about the evils of sodomy, and St. Peter Damien did also, mentioning how sordid it was when priests fell into this vice. I heard a rumor that the Pontifical Lombard Seminary in Rome was closed for a time because felching was so commonly practiced there. A seminarian professor told me that he told the seminarians to always stay close to Our Lady, because She would keep them close to Her Son. The Rosary is one of the surest ways to be near Our Blessed Mother. Unfortunately, many priests today no longer pray, and that is what gets them into trouble when they fall for the devil’s temptations. Without prayer and sacrifice, we are slaves of Satan. Ave Maria Purrissima !
Actually, the Borgias were much worse. Pope Alexander VI fathered several children by different misstresses.
While the heinous mortal sin of buggery has been around for thousands of years, it is only lately that it is not considered by the majority of Catholics to be gravely sinful. Because it is being accepted more and more by clerics and the episcopate, the sin of sodomy will probably increase. We Catholics have a moral duty to pray, offer reparation and make sacrifices, not only to atone for this terrible sin, but also that it will not spread like wildfires within the Catholic Church. This is a punishment for turning away from God. For fifty years we have been adoring the world and creatures, and not adoring our Triune God, who is THE CREATOR of all.
This news confirms in my mind why the pope chose to live outside of the Vatican, in an apartment!
not to forget greater safety from terrorist attacks. the papal suites were a perfect target for a rocket attac or an rpg(rocket propelled grenage) launch from many convenient points. the higher llevel terrorist would have little trouble getting these thinks into italy through porous borders.
