THE INVALIDITY OF FRANCIS THE MERCIFUL’S REIGN AS POPE DOES NOT REST ON HERESY, IT RESTS ON THE INVALIDITY OF HIS ELECTION

This hypothesis (that Francis’ manifest heresy is the basis for asserting the

invalidity of his claim to be Pope) is cut off entirely by the text and manifest

intention of His Holiness, Pope John Paul II, in His Apostolic Constitution, Universi

Dominici Gregis.

Heresy is a symptom, but not a cause of the invalid papacy.  Noncompliance

with Universi Dominici Gregis is the sole reason and cause for the nullity of the

Bergoglian papacy.  See, for example, ¶76 & ¶81 of Universi Dominici Gregis

and the Promulgation Clause at the end of Universi Dominici Gregis.  In other

words, the idea of overthrowing a bad Pope is extremely problematic.  Who

says a Pope is a heretic?  Who has the authority to say so?  Canon 333–§3 states:

“No appeal or recourse is permitted against a sentence or decree of the Roman Pontiff.”

So, even if what Saint Robert Bellarmine says is true, how does that work out?

How could it be that the College of Bishops would even have a unanimous opinion

about this?  In contrast, valid Cardinals need only meet, and if they compose a

majority of those cardinals not appointed by putatively invalid Pope, simply

enforce Universi Dominici Gregis by declaring the nullity in the context of also

declaring the violations of Universi Dominici Gregis which caused the nullity,

and then declaring an ongoing Interregnum and the reassembly of the

Conclave suchwise that they can thus elect a valid Pope.

    We need remember That God is Goodness itself and is Omniscient and Omnipotent.

    He searches the depths of every heart.
    He sees all and has seen the end of all. Have Faith in God and know with Saint Augustine that indeed Our Lord instituted The Sacraments but is not bound by His Sacraments.
    Anyone who strives to know and Love God, The Father of Jesus Christ and to do His Will, will be saved.

    Thank you for this. I had and have a sinking feeling that nobody is going to do anything … your explanation is good. I pray that someone will take action with it before the horrific synod looming before us all . I’m only a layman … I see his heresy grow worse however. I cry for the future of my children, grands, great grands. A good priest told me that if they live through the warning and other, they will see the most glorious era that the Catholic Church has ever known. That helps!
