Mercy 2.0: Francis Threatens His Cardinals With Secular Courts

On one hand, Francis plays "humble" and "bishop of Rome" but on the other hand, he is turning himself into a great dictator who treats the rest of the bishops as if they were his altar boys.

Francis' most recent coup is an April 30 Motu Proprio allowing bishops and cardinals to stand trial before the Vatican's civil and lay-dominated court.

Until now, the Apostolic Signature, composed of prelates, was allowed to judge such cases. The new motu proprio came in the wake of the Vatican's financial scandals for which Francis himself is responsible because he botched the Vatican financial reform.

Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò notices in a May 1 comment that the new norms promote a “tyrannical centralisation of power” while Francis gives the impression of "democracy," "collegiality," and "involvement of the laity."

By subjecting prelates to a lay tribunal appointed by Francis and depending on him, he takes away competences from other bishops and concentrates them it in his own hand, Viganò analyses.

This move will allow him to punish or absolve "whoever he wants at will, ensuring the subservience of courtiers and promoting a curia of flatterers."

✍ In the comment Aldo Maria Valli associates the cult of personality with the dictatorship. And the one who is treated like an idol and behaves like a dictator is Bergoglio. 🤔

Bergoglio will soon work with the Antichrist for one world religion, and will excommunicate all priests, bishops and cardinals who do not comply with His one world religion

"But history teaches us that the cult of personality, so typical of dictatorships, easily turns into damnatio memoriae." You should review history more closely.@la verdad prevalece That didn't happen didn't for Pope "Santo Subito".

I don't think that is the worst of this issue. If reporting is accurate, it should recall to mind what Our Lord communicated to St Catherine of Siena in #129-130 but also #120.
