A man dressed up in fake ecclesiastical robes was escorted out of a meeting of Catholic cardinals by the Swiss Guard on Monday after trying to sneak into the closed-door Vatican meeting.

The man, whose real name is Ralph Napierski, told reporters his name was “Basilius” and that he was a member of the “Italian Orthodox Church,” which does not exist.

Napierski claims on his blog he is a founder of the Corpus Dei Catholic order. He also says he invented “a system to enable persons to control computers with the power of thoughts.”

He also promotes something called “Jesus Yoga.”
