Bad Taste: Ratzinger/Sarah Invent “Synod Of Media” Versus “Real Amazon Synod”

Benedict XVI and Cardinal Sarah are not ashamed to write in their book that a "strange synod of media" took precedence over the “real Amazon synod.”

However, on social media, people are done with the invocation of “this phoney dichotomy,” known from Second-Vatican-Council-propaganda.

Gloria.tv’s editors browsed through hundreds of comments which all underline that it was "not a media spin” that put idols in St Peter’s during a ceremony presided by Francis who wants you “not to believe your lying eyes.”

Hilary White comments that the narrative that "the real Council/Synod was hijacked for ideological purposes" is deader than "John Paul the Great," deader than the "hermeneutics of continuity," and deader than Bergoglio’s eyes on the loggia the night of his election.

Some say that once upon a time there was the real robber synod and the synod of the Greek press.

Evening. Good evening.
The more quotes that appear from this book, the more I dread one of these men will not see 2021.
Why does it bother you?. Death awaits us all. But it is gratifying to see that you value the strange continuing pontificate of pope Benedict xvi.
My thoughts... you robbed of them... Amazing!!!! I'm sure you would agree!!!

Yes, it does Thors Catholic Hammer Natural causes and man-made ones are very different from one another, The former I accept, the latter I fear.

I value Benedict's scholarship and his reputation, both of which he uses to confound and subvert the Church's enemies. As for his pontificate, that ended exactly when he said it did: "from 28 February …More

To Ultraviolet. You omitted the full quote which includes I declare that I renounce the ministry of Bishop of Rome, etc
The papal ministry is not the papal office.
This is a qualified resignation speech. It is qualified by reference to the See of Peter and to the additional reference to a new conclave not by the college of cardinals but by those whose competence it is.

The competence to elect a pope is traditionally the church of the diocese of Rome. Benedict’s deliberate omission to mention the college of cardinals indicates he didn’t trust them to do the right thing.
Benedict continues to act , dress and function as a pope.
Only blind people would think he had properly manifested a resignation.
Bergoglio , stage name francis 1st, is a long time formal heretic
and again only the very very blind would ever see or accept such a truly vile apostate as a true Vicar of Christ.
"Only blind people would think he had properly manifested a resignation."

No offence, but the same can be said for those who see Benedict still as the current Pope.

If Benedict was (as you claim) continuing to act and function as Pope, we would not be having this discussion. Francis wouldn't even be in the picture. It's really as simple as that.

Very recently Benedict declared his "filial …More

Very recently Benedict declared his "filial obedience" to Pope Francis. The functioning head of The Church is not "obedient" to a subordinate. Those are not the words of a man who sees himself as the reigning Pope. Likewise, Benedict is letting Francis do everything Francis is doing, unimpeded. That is not the behavior of a man who is acting or functioning as Pope, either.

I get the impression you're reading what you'd like to in what Benedict does or doesn't say. There is no proof of a deliberate omission any more than a deliberately qualified resignation. I know, you're going to repeat that "the papal ministry is not the papal office" and I'm going to repeat that Benedict resigned his ministry "in such a way" that the jurisdictional authority of being Pope and Bishop of Rome is vacant.

You see Benedict's resignation as "qualifed"... "A" but not "B". Benedict's own choice of words show that he renounced "A" in such a way a new Pope must be elected. If "such a way" requires "B" then it has to be included or it falls short of the standard Benedict established. Simply put, a new Pope wouldn't need to be elected at all and that is what Benedict explicitly stated he wanted to see.

If a claim is made that an omission is deliberate, what then of Benedict's adoption of the title Emeritus? That is undisputably a deliberate choice on his part and an Emeritus is one who formerly held an office and (more importantly) doesn't anymore. Using your line of reasoning, Benedict's deliberate choice of title shows his intention to resign the office. An "Emeritus" has nothing to do with just resigning one's ministry and retaining office. .The title he chose, by definition, applies specifically to someone who retired from office.

Personally, I find it much easier to accept the straight-forward reasoning that a.) Benedict resigned. b.) Francis was appointed. c.) Francis is the worst Pope ever. and d.) everything happens because either 1.) God causes it to happen or 2.) God allows it to happen through the action of others. As Christians, we accept and acknowledge the Book Of Revelations as a true prophecy of the future.

There is no point in trying to second-guess the Almighty's plans than there is constructing elaborate arguments to contradict what is, sadly, a grim self-evident reality and the harbinger of worse things to come.
