Pope Benedict IS THE POPE

From Rome

An International Venue for Catholic Thought

Canon Law itself declares Pope Francis, AntiPope

Jan10by The Editor


The clear, precise, and sound reading of the Code of Canon Law leads to the inescapable conclusion that Pope Francis is an “antipope” in every sense of the word, and that the law itself declares it.

As has been demonstrated in the article, “How and Why Pope Benedict’s resignation is invalid”, there is no other authentic reading of Canon 332 §2 other than that the renunciation of munus is the necessary sine qua non condition of a papal resignation.

This canonical argument is supported by 35 reasons, debated in Scholastic form, in the article, “The Validity of Benedict’s Resignation must be questioned, Parts I and II”, why a renunciation of ministerium, in the form had in the papal declarations of Feb. 11, 2013, cannot signify a renunciation of munus as per Canon 332 §2, Canon 188 etc..

Therefore, Pope Benedict XVI remains the one and only true Pope of the Catholic Church with all the powers and prerogatives of that office.

As I pointed out in my rebuttal of Roberto de Mattei, canon 359 guarantees that the College of Cardinals has no authority to convene to elect a pope, when there has been an invalid papal resignation.

Therefore, the Conclave of 2013 is without any right in Canon Law to elect a successor to Pope Benedict. Therefore, the one it claimed to elect, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, has no authority whatsoever conferred upon him by accepting that election. He is in truth a usurper of the papal office, and must be punished in accord with Canon 1381 §1 for that crime (if he knowingly has done this, otherwise upon demonstration of the delict, he must publicly disavow his claim to the office).

Since Bergoglio never had any canonical authority as Pope, all his nominations to the  Roman Curia are null and void. Therefore, all actions taken by the Congregation of Religious against religious communities, or by the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith against anyone, or the Secretary of State vis-a-vis treaties with nations, such as China, or appointments of Bishops, etc. etc. are NULL AND VOID.

Since the papal resignation of Pope Benedict XVI is invalid, among other reasons, in virtue of containing a substantial error (canon 188) regarding what words must be expressed to conform to canon 322 §2, that resignation is invalid by the law itself (lege ipso). That invalidation spreads to the Conclave and all acts of Bergoglio as Francis, which are canonical, because they too are founded upon the same substantial error, though compounded.

Therefore, since the invalidity of Bergoglio’s papacy depends upon the law of the Church itself (canon 188), there is no need for a judgement of any ecclesiastical office to intervene to establish that it is so. And thus, Catholics may and indeed are obliged BY DIVINE FAITH and OBEDIENCE to the Apostolic See and to Canon Law to hold Bergoglio to be an Anti-Pope and to insist to Cardinals and Bishops and civil authorities that he be driven from the Vatican as a usurper.

Let all Catholics who love Christ, who are obedient to the Code of Canon Law and who seek the salvation of souls act now and today. Write your Bishop and the Cardinals. Write the Italian Government, which is bound to uphold only the canonically elected governments of the Vatican. Insist with all that the fact of Bergoglio’s invalidity be publicly affirmed and his usurpation denounced.

Its either that, or the end of the Vatican as we know it, as being part of the Catholic Church.

    He (Benedict) has always seemed pretty sincere here to me. He also didn’t seem to mind “offending” when he refused to even read the books on the “theology of Francis” and pretty much scolded the person who requested he write a preface.
    This “Benedict is Pope” theory is just that, a theory.
    Until thrre is some kind of authoritative intervention, be it orelates or Jesys himself, we really have no way of knowing this with religious certainty.
    We may have a logical, circumstantial trail of breadcrumbs but the confusion created by Francis was made possible by at least a few previous popes.

    IMO? When in doubt, follow the Truth one has known and ignore any of the apparently heretical novelties.

    (ie it wasn’t Francis kissing the Koran, Islamic people’s feet…Yes…but not the psychopath’s writings.

  2. Sheepdog says:

    This article is a good explanation for why one MUST accept Benedict XVI as the Pope.

  3. Sheepdog says:

    From 2016: Benedict tell Francis that “your goodness is the place where I dwell: I feel protected?” He must not provoke “Pope” Francis the merciful!!!!!

  4. Ferde Rombola says:

    By his actions, by his heresies, by his treachery, by his foul mouth it is not possible for Jorge Mario Bergoglio to be the Vicar of Christ. He is a usurper and must be driven from the Vatican.

    I guess we’ll see.
    The situation is at least good for remaining conscious of Christ’s possibly imminent return.
    It’s either that or decades of confusion if Francis’ appointments and proclamations remain.
    Things wrapping up in the sense of “a new heavens and new earth” being born as “all of creation groans” for it’s fulfilment/transformation will happen at some point….I’m hoping sooner than later.

    Reblogged this on HAURIETIS AQUAS and commented:
    Bishop Gracida continues to try to make us understand “How and Why Benedict’s resignation was invalid” and Francis is an anti-pope. Thank you for research and reason!
