Francis Promotes the Next Compromised Figure

@Kenjiro M. Yoshimori The man also doesn't seem to compromised to me. He was only UNDERsecretary (not even full secretary) under tat homosexualist, he did much work as nuncio and even told the Ukrainian Catholics to just forget Bergoglio's agreement with the patriarch of Moscow.

Schneider: The Results of the Synod on Synodality are Conceived in Advance

They are indeed repeating a lot of tricks from Vatican II but the attempt to turn this into a de facto Vatican III won't prove easy I think because:
1. Some said an actual Vatican III should be organised after the synod, so this might not be sufficient.
2. Vatican II did have the status of an ecumenical council (albeit vague whether it was doctrinal) this doesn't.

1. Some said an actual Vatican III should be organised after the synod, so this might not be sufficient.
2. Vatican II did have the status of an ecumenical council (albeit vague whether it was doctrinal) this doesn't.
3. Little real support amongst most bishops.
4. Surprisingly little support amongst the mainstream media at this point.
5. Backlash to the German synodal path and to Francis.
6. The clearly ad hoc nature of th entire process and it being extended again.

For any results to be pushed through, Francis has to make it to the end of 2024 anyways.

Müller: Heretic Pope Automatically Loses Office - Really?

@Clement Jaeho Chung Bergoglio will likely not offend Africans, he often tries to be liked by different nations.
I always like your talking btw.

Müller: Heretic Pope Automatically Loses Office - Really?

@Kenjiro M. Yoshimori I have looked at the cardinals. The bad ones aren't soo many, all added up together they'll likely fluctuate around 40 at the end of this year.
Francis only added 4 real bad (MAYBE 5) cardinal electors out of 16 this year. Yet at least 2 bad ones are turning 80. Maradagia will in 43 days and Gianfranco Ravasi thankfully turned 80 last months.

He added at least 5 really good ones:

Baawobr from Ghana (supported laws criminalising homosexual practices)

Okpaleke (from Nigeria)

Goh (Singapore has defended anti-sodomy law, opposed gay marriage and abortion)

do Carmo da Silva (from East Timor has criticised LGBT promotion)

Marengo (missionary leader in Mongolia, against shamanism and syncretism, said next Pope should firmly adhere to doctrine)

These 5 were great additions just this year.

As a Korean, I wanted your opnion regarding You Heung-sik. He defended priestly celibacy during the youth synod in 2018 I know.

Curia Cardinal Feels the Need for a Child Molester

Thankfully he turned 80 last month and Maradagia will follow him in 46 days. Funny how we're losing these 2 horrible cardinal electors. We gained only 4 terrible ones out of the 16 new ones at the recent consistory. Almost a miracle.
Ravasi makes Tolentino de Mendonça seem like a good successor in comparison.
But honestly the cartoon doesn't see fitting here, this guy was from before Bergoglio.More

Yearning for Peace: French Bishops Reject Francis' Liturgical Wars

@Irishpol I have reviewed them actually. I was surprisingly relieved, Francis added 4 (perhaps maybe 5) bad cardinal electors out of 16 at the recent consistory. At last 5 really good ones as well.
NOT giving the benefit of the doubt to any vague cardinals, we'll at most have 41 solid bad ones when Maradagia turns 80 coming 29th of December. The number of cardinal electors will be 126 then. As long …More

NOT giving the benefit of the doubt to any vague cardinals, we'll at most have 41 solid bad ones when Maradagia turns 80 coming 29th of December. The number of cardinal electors will be 126 then. As long as a conclave is held before the number drops below 123 they won't have a veto block. Even after that, just one of the cardinals would need to turn out to not be as bad as possible.

The questionable ones include Ouellet (if he doesn't join the Bergoglian camp they have only 40 anyways), De Avis, Poli (Francis' successor in Buenors Aires whom he apparently targeted with that investigation) and Peter Turkson from Africa.

Meanwhile I count 45 solid orthodox cardinals till April next year, 44 after that.

Basically... hope Francis won't get another consistory.

Hypocrisy in Action: Cardinal Müller Cancelled

Osoro was accused back in the day of not allowing Muller to speak in the archdiocese but then did allow it.
He didn't cancel as much as avoid him. Osoro doesn't like confrontations. Honestly the spineless meme would have fitted here, but I wonder... what will this mean for a conclave?More

"All Right": Presiding Italian Bishop Sings Roman Rite Vespers

We should watch out for this man! He is clearly ambitious and him becoming the next pope would be horrible but he has some handicaps:
1. He is relatively young.

3. Itaslian (number of Italian cardinals has shrunk further under Francis while third world cardinals have increased).
4. The gay blessing (first in any Catholic church in Italy) and his dishonest denial of it will hopefully matter more to African, Eastern European and various Asian bishops than him indulging the Tridentine faithful.

Tagle has defended the China deal, hopefully this will turn more Asian cardinals against him and handicap his chances.

Grech has embraced the radical Left for some odd reason...

Roche is another dangerous candidate but with little clear charm and associated with heavy-handed enforcement of Custodes which most bishops have ignored.

Francis' Synod Tries to Foist Homosexuality on Africans

It is all wonderfully ambigious. The Leftists, the Modernists, failed to even pretend there was a stong populist push for doctrinal change.
Now they have to find a way by 2024 and hope Francis becomes 88 with one lung, half a gut left, and 'problems with his knee'.More

Francis' Synod Tries to Foist Homosexuality on Africans

It is only one quote from a national synthesis and the document does not endorse these quotes nor is it magisterial, but furthermore, the challenge of dealing with those who shockingly embraced homosexuality isn't answered with a call for change in doctrine, but I do hope that there will be a strong African pushback.

Francis' Synod Now Also Includes Polygamists

@Kenjiro M. Yoshimori To be clear, I said unity with the CHAIR of Saint Peter, with the OFFICE, with the LEGITIMATE successors.
Bishop Gracida has already made it clear Francis wasn't legitimately elected which explains a lot. I did not advocate remaining united to Bergoglio. At all.
Whether we'll see a proper papal restoration before the time of Christ I want to look into further.

Your description of a restoration woul logically need to be led by the highest reaining legitimate magisterial authority. Presumably that would be Cardinal Burke, prefect of the apostolic signature.

I fully support your call for an uprising, a counterrevolution!

I am not considering leaving God's Church at all. What we're discussing his is more a restoration that would indeed involve separating from the infiltrators and usurpers if necessary.

I fully agree with you that this should happen, if Francis' consolidates the revolution. So for now I think prudence is good. He needs to make it to the end of 2024. Also, this document is actually rather watered down.
But some Catholics predicted a great Catholic prelate and possibly an angelic pope during the end times. Perhaps.
Or maybe Christ will return when all seems lost.

The Tridentine mass got some fair attention.
