St. Jerome Agrees with St. Bellermine against Bp. Schneider & Condemns Francis’s Amoris Laetitia

Bishop Athanasius Schneider claims “that a heretical pope can… lose office was alien to the first millennium.”

Doctor of the Church St. Robert Bellarmine says:

“The manifest heretical pope ceases per se to be pope… This is the opinion of all the ancient Fathers.”
(Mahound Paradise Blog, “Who is Right, Athanasius Schneider or Robert Bellarmine?” October 30, 2019)

Ancient Church Father St. Jerome agrees with Bellermine (that all Catholics who
are manifest heretics be they laymen or popes “exclud[e] themselves from the Church spontaneously”) against
Schneider’s opinion; and Jerome, also, condemns Francis’s Amoris Laetitia:

“Therefore it is said that the heretic has condemned himself; for the fornicator, the adulterer, the murderer and other sinners are expelled from the Church by the priests; but the heretics pronounce sentence against themselves, excluding themselves from the Church spontaneously.”
(TFR.org, “The Heretic Excludes Himself from the Church, ‘Being Condemned by his own Judgement,'” July 3, 2019)

Of course, this must be done by the Church as Doctor of the Church St. Francis de Sales says:

“The Pope… when he is explicitly a heretic… the Church must either deprive him or as some say declare him deprived of his Apostlic See.”
(The Catholic Controversy by St Francis de Sales, Pages 305-306)

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.

    Wow! I looked up the word, heretic, and found this example for the use of the word…
    “ If your friend became interested in Hinduism, with its many gods and rituals, her Catholic mother might be worried that her daughter was a heretic, or a person whose religious beliefs are in contrast to the fundamental beliefs of her church.”
    Hmmm…
    Somehow this reminds me of someone interested in the indigenous people in the Amazon and their rituals … something to do with the Amazon Synod and idol worship of a “mother earth goddess” pachamama!?!
    From gloria.tv, I found this…
    “Paragraph 9 of the Amazon Synod’s document explains enthusiastically that the understanding of life among the Amazonian peoples is characterised by a “connectedness” between “God and the various spiritual forces.” The term “spiritual forces” means the Pagan demons.
    This allegedly also regards a “harmony” with the water, the territory, nature, community life, and culture,
    “It’s about living in harmony with oneself, with nature, with human beings and with the supreme being, since there is an intercommunication between the whole cosmos, where there are neither excluding nor excluded, and where we can forge a project of full life for all,” the text fantasises.”
    Father Mitch Pacwa, on EWTN, was spot on when he noted that we see the truth. We are not stupid and we are Not fooled! He went on to talk about how, in 1970, a whole town, (of 24,000 people), in Peru was wiped out by a 120 mile per hour mudslide, (caused by an earthquake), and the only thing left standing was a statue of Jesus. There were only a few survivors who had been picnicking on a hill and they watched the whole horrible event. They wrote on the base of the statue of Jesus, saying this is what happens when people worship pachamama!
    I just read that there was an earthquake at the Vatican, while some bishops from New England were meeting with Francis. Heaven only knows what’s coming next. Come what may, we know that,…
    God is not fooled!
    And…
    God is not mocked!

    Unlike the impeachment process in the USA, I would like to know how a Pope is declared heretical and removed as Pope.
