Canon Law Expert: How to Write to the Cardinals about Francis without getting Excommunicated?
Canon law expert Br. Alexis Bugnolo’s advice on how to writing letters to the cardinals without risking “any possible canonical counter-attack on the grounds of schism, heresy or the violation of canon law, because as you can see from the cases of the Scottish Hermits and Father Minutella and Dr. Galat, the Bergoglians are very quick on the excommunication tactic”:
Regarding the suggestion to write an old fashioned letter to all the Cardinals, that is doable. But I think it would have no effect, unless we can muster a good number of names of canonists, theologians, clergy and even perhaps some bishops as signatories.
I think I can write an acceptible letter, but it would then have to be discussed among the potential signatories, becuase you wont get a good number to sign, unless they all agree. And I am not yet sure there are that many who understand Canon 332.2 or the principles of Divine and Apostolic Right in a time of necessity.
So to gather the Cardinals to do something, and not just the Cardinals, because the Bishops actually have a stronger right, since it is only necessary that one Cardinal declare the See impeded and ask the College of Bishops to intervene, we do not actually have to convince 40 to 70 Cardinals.
But it must be done in such a way as to avoid any possible canonical counter-attack on the grounds of schism, heresy or the violation of canon law, because as you can see from the cases of the Scottish Hermits and Father Minutella and Dr. Galat, the Bergoglians are very quick on the excommunication tactic to destroy reputations and prevent actions of true Catholic dialogue.
So the first step would be a general petition, such as,
I the undersigned believe that it is now opportune that the Cardinals and/or Bishops discuss the problems in the Church which are emanating from the Vatican, for there, there is a man who was elected pope, who still comports himself as a pope but does not govern the Church since he renounced the ministry, and then there is another man who was elected pope, who does not comport himself as a pope but attacks the Deposit of the Faith.
Such a statement should be acceptable to all Catholics, and avoid any canonical reprisals. From the list of who signs we assemble a list of the experts who agree on that first step and then prepare a formal letter to all the Cardinals and then to all the Bishops.
Sincerely in Saint Francis,repairer of Christ’s Church,
