Impossible: The Italian Vaticanista Sandro Magister quotes the Canadian newspaper publisher Conrad Black who in July 2002 had lunch with John Paul II in Toronto during the World Youth Day. During the lunch the late pope said. Quote: “A pope emeritus is impossible.”

Empty Threats: On Monday, Virginia Raggi took over as the new mayor of Rome. She belongs to the Five Star Movement, a weird political group which fights for environmentalism, homosexualism and statism. Before her election Raggi told the British Guardian that she would claim up to €400m in allegedly unpaid taxes on Vatican’s properties. Raggi claimed that they had never been collected for fear of taking on the Church.

Anti-Church Bill failed: A bill attempting to lift the statute of limitations on sexual abuse of minors which excepted the public schools, failed to make it to the floor of the New York State Assembly. Catholic League’s Bill Donohue calls the bill a shame pushed by lawyers and activists out to rape the Church. Quote, “We wrote to all members of the legislature asking them not to allow the public schools a pass. We won on this request.”

Killing: Toronto Cardinal Thomas Collins called the introduction of euthanasia and assisted suicide in Canada a misguided decision. According to Collins this produces a loss of respect for the dignity of the human person, a pressure upon the vulnerable to be gone, and an assault upon the conscience of doctors and nurses who wish to heal not to kill.

Al haber un cardenal que predica herejías ocupando el trono de Pedro, el último papado válido al dia de hoy es el de SS Benedicto XVI y él vive, por Gracia de Dios.

Dear @Abramo No one can depose a pope. Pope Benedict XVI is still the Pope.
Socci.: Benedict XVI “did not intend to renounce the pontifical munus” which “is irrevocable”
By canon law he would need to formally resign without being forced.

Jungerheld: The conclusion is that Benedict XVI should have given up on being a pope altogether: Cardinal Ratzinger.
Bergoglio's papacy is invalid, even if we apply the same logic that he applies to invalid marriages: Bergoglio also since the beginning called himself "Bishop of Rome" and neither assumed the office as a Pope and Bergoglio said in the interview with Valentina Alazraki, " I do not know if they made me swear something, I forget. " A forced marriage is invalid . His vows are invalid. It means Berg…More

" A forced marriage is invalid . His vows are invalid. It means Bergoglio does not officially took over as a valid pope, and nor acts or behaves like a pope but as a heretic.

Uncle Joe
It's complicated enough to follow American politics much less what's going on in Rome.

But, based on her looks alone, I'm all for Virginia Raggi.

.

She reminds me of my 3rd wife before she turned on me.

“A pope emeritus is impossible.” means Benedict is Still the Pope, because Pope Benedict XVI had no intention to resign as Pope therefore his resignation is invalid.

Bergoglio was interviewed by journalist Valentina Alazraki, correspondent of Televisa News in the Vatican:

“A pope emeritus is impossible.” means Benedict is Still the Pope, because Pope Benedict XVI had no intention to resign as Pope therefore his resignation is invalid.

Bergoglio was interviewed by journalist Valentina Alazraki, correspondent of Televisa News in the Vatican:
VALENTINA ALAZRAKI:You also told us that will follow the example of Pope Benedict ... This changes a bit 'the idea of the papacy, because we used that the pope was an institution created by the Holy Spirit and to the death.
BERGOGLIO- "There were some cardinals who PRIOR to the CONCLAVE, in the general congregations, probed the very interesting, very rich THEOLOGICAL PROBLEM. I think that what Pope Benedict did has been to open a door. 60 years ago there were no emeritus bishops. And now we have 1400. They came to the idea that a man after 75, or close to that age, cannot carry the weight of a particular church. In general I think what Benedict so courageously did was to open the door to the Popes emeritus. Benedict should not be considered an exception, but an institution. Maybe he will be the only one for a long time, maybe he will not be the only one. But an institutional door has been opened. Today the Pope Emeritus is no longer a RARITY since a door for him to exist as a figure has been opened".
VALENTINA ALAZRAKI: Can you imagine a situation where a Pope retires at 80 as is the case with bishops?
BERGOGLIO- "I can. However, I do not really like the idea of an age limit. Because I believe that the Papacy is a kind of last instance. It is a special grace. For some theologians the Papacy is a sacrament. The Germans are VERY CREATIVE in all these things. I do not think so, but I want to say that it is something special. To say that one is in charge up to 80 years, creates a sensation that the pontificate is at it’s end and that would not be a good thing. Predictability. I would not support the idea of putting an age limit on it, but I share the idea of what Benedict did.

In saying a, "Pope Emeritus" is impossible, is the point that we should now acknowledge "retired pope" Benedict with the title of bishop? or that a pope can't retire?
Imposible: El italiano vaticanista Sandro Magister cita al editor de un periódico canadiense Conrad Negro que en julio del 2002 almorzó con el Papa Juan Pablo II en Toronto durante la JMJ. Durante el almuerzo, dijo el Papa. Cita: “Un Papa emérito es imposible.”
