FRANCIS THE MERCIFUL IS NOT A VALIDLY ELECTED POPE ACCORDING TO THE LEGISLATION EXPRESSED IN UNIVERSI DOMINICI GREGIS PROMULGATED AS AN APOSTOLIC CONSTITUTION GOVERNING PAPAL CONCLAVES

https://www.mediatrixmedia.org/essays/wackosupremacists.html

His Holiness, Pope John Paul II, having known a prodigious amount of information on the opposition of the Saint Gallen group to the election of his successor Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger

was fully knowledgeable in the details of dogmatic and doctrinal principles which previous

to his Apostolic Constitution, Universi Dominici Gregis, could and would be applied to resolve

questions about the validity of a particular historic Papacy, and that His Holiness categorically

and specifically intended to dispense with, and utterly to preempt, the need for, and use of,

any principles which had been applied historically to resolve ambiguities and doubts 

about the incumbency of any Pontiff putatively emerging from a Conclave to which His

Apostolic Constitution, Universi Dominici Gregis applied.  

This means that because the status of Monsignor Bergoglio can be determined completely

by a fair and just application of Universi Dominici Gregis without reference to any guidance

external or extrinsic to such Constitution, having recourse to such historic doctrinal and 

dogmatic concepts, e.g., universal acceptance, is neither material nor relevant, and never 

necessary or proper for the rational discernment of the question of whether or not 

Monsignor Bergoglio was validly elected as a true Roman Pontiff.  The “scienter” Promulgation

determines this certainty of discernment confined within the “four corners” of the Constitution:“This Constitution  .   .   .  is to be fully and integrally implemented and is to serve as a guide
for all to whom it refers.  As determined above, I hereby declare abrogated all Constitutions
and Orders issued in this regard by the Roman Pontiffs, and at the same time I declare
completely null and void anything done by any person, whatever his authority, knowingly
or unknowingly, in any way contrary to this Constitution.”
[Promulgation Clause, Apostolic Constitution, Universi Dominici Gregis]

This language does not admit of any exception, and certainly not an exception based on 

the degree to which a putative Pope has “acceptance” as such.  “Universal acceptance” 

originated in an age before the printing press, a time when what was required was known 

by few and what was performed was understood by even less.  It simply has no place 

in discerning a Conclave called subject to Universi Dominici Gregis

  1. This is addressed to Ferde Rombola: Only a military solution can address the present occupation of the papal chair by an infiltrator like “Pope” Francis. This military solution must originate with the Italians, the former Austro-Hungarian nations (the Visgard group) and any other Catholics who realize the importance of the papacy. This will not happen until these countries decide they must act independently of the EU and NATO. The new world order will not allow an overthrow of Francis. They must be encouraged and supported by Catholics worldwide. The pope should be a champion of Catholicity, a champion for Christ. Only a military overthrow can accomplish this.

    Brevity is the soul of wisdom. Thank Bishop Gracida.

  3. Ferde Rombola says:

    ABYSSUS ABYSSUM has posted the heresies of Bergoglio many times, but no solutions. What can we do that doesn’t involve our bishops? It’s a puzzle.

  4. Islam_Is Islam says:

    In an much as UDG is applicable to the goings on before and during the March 2013 conclave, the juridical validity of the attempted resignation according to Canon Laws 332.2 and 17 themselves is THE starting point and THE key. Investigating the irregularities of the conclave will reveal bad guys, but overall tends to muddy the water needed to address St. Ambrose’s statement, “Where Peter is, there is the Church.”

  5. camroyer says:

    Arguments like this are why those like myself find Bp. Gracida’s position so convincing. In plain language, they show that his position can withstand scrutiny. And can his critics’ positions do the same? It doesn’t seem that way to me. But if they can, then at this point in the crisis, at least exponents of the Universal Acceptance theory seriously need to respond, explicitly, to the above argument by Bp. Gracida. Forthright replies to objections are the only honest way to move the debate forward. As the Bishop has shown he can provide these sorts of replies, so his critics—if they want to be taken seriously—should show us they can too.

    God bless you, dear Bishop.

  6. Mary Ann Parks says:

    True. But UDG goes even further:
    UDG “76. Should the election take place in a way other than that prescribed in the present Constitution, or should the conditions laid down here not be observed, the election is for this very reason null and void, without any need for a declaration on the matter; consequently, it confers no right on the one elected.”
    “No declaration necessary” would seem to apply to “universal acceptance” and also to the need for Cardinals to decide on validity. JPII also lets us off the hook on following a man invalidly elected, once it is known that the rules were violated. He was prescient.
