Early Easter Monday, Vatican sources leaked to Gloria.tv the final text of a Motu proprio that Pope Francis will publish during this Easter week.
It is his 30th motu proprio and is entitled "Habebamus Papam". As it is already in the process of being translated, the text that was sent to Gloria.tv, will not undergo any further changes.
"Habebamus Papam" introduces modifications in the way the Supreme Pontiff will be addressed in the future.
It refers to Pope John Paul II, who spoke of the need for the papacy to be more open to ecumenical efforts in his encyclical "Ut Unum Sint" (That They May Be One), published on 25 May 1995.
In that document, the late pope invited leaders and theologians of other Christian traditions to engage in dialogue about how the papal office, in its role of service to unity, could be exercised in a way that better reflects the reality of Christian pluralism.
Francis insists that, after almost 30 years, it's time for the words of this canonised pope to be followed …More

For Pete's sake, please get rid of this post...the Vatican may actually consider this worthy of codifying.

This IS satire, correct? I found it blood-chilling.

It seems to me wrong to accuse the compilers of such parodies of bad taste or lack of professionalism. Of course, these people are not cunning apostates, unlike the compilers of the texts being parodied, and in this sense they are certainly not professionals.

It seems to me wrong to accuse the compilers of such parodies of bad taste or lack of professionalism. Of course, these people are not cunning apostates, unlike the compilers of the texts being parodied, and in this sense they are certainly not professionals.

However, such parodies, hyperbolically demonstrating all the evil of the original texts, well satirize the writing methods of heretics and apostates (see, among many others, "Traditionis custodes" and "Fiducia supplicans"), who, in fact, are the really sick people.

Also, adding real facts to a joke does not make the joke unsuccessful or bad. On the contrary, almost every joke contains some truth. And besides, jokes are intended to make reality funny, and not for anything else.

As for the question of how funny it is, well, each person has his own sense of humor, and what one person finds very funny, another person finds absolutely not funny.

We must fight the evil of apostates and heretics who are physically present in our Holy Mother Church. To do this, among other things, we must show everyone their evil, and this goal is also served by ridiculing their methods and the results of their writing efforts.

"NOSTRA AETATE (Part II): Declaration on the relation of the Church to Satan

In this age of ours, when men are are drawing more closely together and the bonds of friendship between different peoples are being strengthened, the Church examines with still greater care the relation which she has with Satan.

When God created the angels, He appointed Lucifer the "anointed Cherub" over paradise (Ezek 28:14). Since "the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable" (Rom 11:29), it follows that, by virtue of his original office, Satan shall forever enjoy a special place and dignity before God. Men always ought to show him respect therefore. Not even the Archangel Michael dared accuse him of wrongdoing (Jude 8-9).

The Apostle James reminds us that Satan still possesses the virtue of faith, something that not even all men possess (see James 2:19; cf. 2 Thess 3:2). In fact, it was not Peter or any of the Apostles who first recognized and confessed Jesus' identity, but Satan and his demons (Mt 4:1ff.; 8:29; Mk 1:24). Satan has therefore retained a deep religious sense. This is especially apparent in his efforts to establish religious institutions all around the world through which men have been invited to explore the divine mystery of that One "who is in all" (Eph 4:6) and "who would have all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth." (1Tim 2:4)

Sounding the depths of the mystery which is the Church, this Council remembers the spiritual ties which link the people of the New Covenant to Satan. This link is most poingnantly observed in Satan's angelic nature. The Church of Christ acknowledges that in God's plan of salvation the beginning of her faith and election is to be found in the angels who were the first of all God's rational creatures (cf. Job 38:7). She also professes that in the resurrection all Christ's faithful shall become "as the angels." (Mt 22:30).

Many of the early Fathers, including Origen, St. Gregory of Nyssa, St.Maximus the Confessor, Didymus the Blind and Evagrius Ponticus, speculated that Satan would one day be restored to his original place in Heaven.

Ought the Church to share in this hope? Perhaps not, but does it not at least strike a resonant chord deep within the human spirit?

The Church rejects nothing of what is true and holy about Satan. She has high regard for his nature, office, dignity and faith. Although she differswith him on many points of doctrine, nevertheless he often relects a ray of that truth which enlightens all God's creatures. Let Christians, while witnessing to their own faith and way of life, acknowledge, preserve and encourage the spiritual and moral truths found within the person of Satan as well as his social and religious life and culture."

النص رائع. إنه نتيجة منطقية لأفعال سيادته. إنه يعكس طريقة تفكير برجوغلية بشكل نقي.

The text is great. It’s a logical consequence of His Holiness’s actions. It reflects a purely Bergoglian way of thinking.

"Ecclesia semper reformada.." ? OK! The 'sane' ones, still remaining in the 'Ecclesia', should come up with another "aggiornamento": let's call it a 'Moto Matrix', which will totally, emphatically erase, cancel and obliterate the last 11 years of the Bergoglio Babylon, including the main characters, of course! That would enter into the 'continuous reform' idea. Anyone agrees? (I think Gloria.tv …More

That sounds like an April Fool's as P. O'B said, I realized this was a joke only when I read Francis will revert to "Jorge Mario".
P. O'B
April Fools' Day, of course, but the reality might soon be worse.

Just a joke, but they may well come to this someday

Don't bring up the name Broglio. In 1964 the Chicago Cubs traded future Hall of Fame player Lou Brock to the St. Louis Cardinals for a sore-arm pitcher named Ernie Broglio. Worst trade in Major League history. Still, I'd take that Broglio over Bergoglio.
Charles Mangerian
I still have Ernie Brolio's baseball card... The Cubbies had a history of bad trades!
Dr Bobus
@P.O'B. As a Cardinal fan of many years, I love the trade.
P. O'B
I am that rarest of Cubs' fans, who can cheer for the Cardinals. For decades I figured that St. Louis was as close to Wrigley Field as a championship would get, and Cubs' fans can't be picky.

Yes, the Church will be reformed out of existence, which was the plan all along..
