American Becomes President Of European Bishops’ Conferences

The US is in Europe ? Really ? Maybe an Indonesian, English or Scottish bishop can become chairman of the USCCB, or of CELAM.

Anyone who condemns the Vicar of My Church cannot be My disciple

Alleged locutions from who-knows-where, concocted by who-knows-whom, have absolutely no authority.

Even locutions from "approved" apparitions, etc., have no authority for anyone but the "seer".

⛪THE VIGANÒ TAPES📼#9 - IN NO WAY CAN WE ACCEPT

Bergoglio seems very eager not to call himself pope. I think it is a fair question whether he can be regarded as one. If he is merely bishop of Rome - who (under Christ) is the head of the Universal Church on Earth ? Ratzinger, or nobody, or who ?

The Future?

They were able to wreck it - so they did. That is what comes of having a church government in which the highest authority is free of all checks and balances & restraints, and can do anything whatsoever that it wants. Tyranny and absolutism are objectionable enough in purely human politics - they do not become good when they are found in the Church.

The papacy is an "earthly authority", so......

Francis Commands Visitation At Famous Old Rite Carmelite Nuns

The Council is a Super-Council - it is almost St Vatican Two, Rome's replacement for the Holy Spirit.

Cracks in the Party: Comunione e Liberazione Rebells Against Francis

That final sentence in German is:

“Nun kursieren in Rom Gerüchte, Franziskus werde sich an CL rächen und die Bewegung unter einen Kommissar stellen.”

In English:

“Now rumors are circulating in Rome that Francis will take revenge on CL and place the movement under a commissioner.”

Which makes perfect sense.

Cracks in the Party: Comunione e Liberazione Rebells Against Francis

This seems relevant: lifesitenews.com/…tion-of-communion-and-liberations-lay-association/

As no source for the translated report is given, my guess is that “commission“ means something like “set up a commission to investigate” Communione e Liberazione. But the translated source is what needs to be seen.

Outcry: Rabbinic Magisterium "Corrects" Francis

The hairy tick Bergoglio is a Modernist. JP2 was a disaster: even a statue of him fell over and killed someone: irishtimes.com/…to-death-by-john-paul-ii-statue-in-italy-1.1774121

Outcry: Rabbinic Magisterium "Corrects" Francis

One can be a Catholic, and fail miserably in all sorts of ways, even in very important ones. But one will be an unhealthy Catholic, not a healthy one. Every Catholic on Earth is an unhealthy Catholic, to some degree or in some way. The sooner the (divisive and untruthful) label "True Catholic" is forgotten, the better. The only "TC", in any worthwhile sense, is Christ Himself, since He alone is …More

Outcry: Rabbinic Magisterium "Corrects" Francis

Francis is merely saying what St Paul said. A mere pope has no authority to unsay what an Apostle, writing inspired Scripture, says.

If the rabbi objects to what the Apostle St Paul says in an inspired letter, too bad. Sorry. Just as, if non-Jews object to Scripture, too bad.

BTW, it is scandalous that the modern papacy has by word and deed renounced the mission to the Jews, and also to the …More

BTW, it is scandalous that the modern papacy has by word and deed renounced the mission to the Jews, and also to the Orthodox. Since Jesus Christ laid this universal charge upon the Church, no-one in the Church can possibly by any means renounce it. No pope or Council has that power or that competence. Christ did not confer a share in His Authority upon St Peter and the other Apostles, in order to allow them to contradict, evade or disobey His commands. He conferred it in order to equip them to obey His commands. If bishops don't intend to obey Him, they need to resign their share in the Authority Christ conferred on them. They have no business retaining it, unless they intend to do as He commands. It really is that simple.

Will Francis Abolish Benedicts’ “Pope Emeritus”?

I think a retired pope - if there has to be such a thing - should be a simple priest. No honours, nothing. Merely what he is.

Will Francis Abolish Benedicts’ “Pope Emeritus”?

The present ridiculous situation is intolerable. JP2 was very explicit that popes could not resign - then, lo and behold, his immediate successor does precisely that. Such self-contradiction makes the papacy laughable.

Traditionis Custodes: Schneider Contradicts Zen

I think Card. Zen was being charitable, and trying to relieve Bergoglio of the responsibility for Traditionis Destructores.
