ANTE DIOS NUNCA SERÁS HÉROE ANÓNIMO
He is still the Pope, and also the only LEGITIMATE pope. He was forced to abdicate, and his "successor" and his thugs coerced and campaigned their way into power, and still do so today.Francis is an illegitimate Pope, and it will all be revealed unfortunately decades from now.But Francis term is nearly over, and his gang will have an unpleasant surprise at who emerges as the next Pope.Damian Malliapalli
I agree, he's still the Pope, let's pray for him and for the Church.
"Francis term is nearly over"?I hate to rain on your parade but aside from his pot belly and the "one lung" everyone brings up, Francis looks to be in exceptional health and doesn't appear to be slowing down or in any type of decline.
LOL, what's your definition of exceptional? His recent lip skids don't betray a spray healthiness. Don't wish him, I pray God will knock him off his horse and clear the crusts from his eyes.
Right on Damian, except I don't think it will take decades. I think things will become evident in the near future.
Anonymous, I agree with you that Benedict is still Pope but for a different reason. I have written several papers on this and have shown how he maintained the Papal Office by renouncing the MINISTRY. It is the Official Latin text of his renunciation announcement that must be examined, and which I have done. For more information don't hesitate to contact me at email@example.com.
I remember when he was elected I fell on my knees in thanksgiving for joy. The media hated him from the moment he stepped onto the loggia. They made life so unbearable for him. When he resigned, I cried. It was like losing a loved one. I still miss him.May Our Lord have mercy on him!
The hateful ones and media called him German shepherd. I also cried when his helicopter flew off from Rome.
Pope Benedict XVI could have interpreted Vatican Council II and the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus in March 2016 with Feeneyism instead of Cushingism: he chose heresy and the hermeneutic of rupturehttp://eucharistandmission.blogspot.it/2017/04/pope-benedict-xvi-could-have.html
Boston Heresy Case refers to historic magisterial heresy in the Catholic Church : practically supported by Pope Benedicthttp://eucharistandmission.blogspot.it/2017/04/boston-heresy-case-refers-to-historic.html
Benedict's election to the papacy was one of the few good days in the VII Church.
I also remember the day of his abdication. My prayer was,that since he was considered to be a ‘conservative’, a pope of ‘tradition’ (as so many foolishly thought, and still do), that strengthened by the Holy Ghost, he would offer, as his last official Holy Mass, the Mass of All Time +++ The Tridentate Mass (in spite of the enemy). That was not to be, he proved to be a coward to the end.....till today. He never defended then, nor now, the weary, but zealous for love of Christ, His Church, and His Truth.....the soldiers of Christ. Seems that the post-Vatican II popes, have been fearing men, rather then God! Miserere!
Depressing in the end because he ran away and abandoned the flock which is presently being ripped to shreds by Pope Francis and his liberal sycophants.
Benedict is not who you think he is. He was the "Rottweiler" for JPII to be sure. In 2008. Archbishop Burke was removed as Archbishop of St. Louis under the watchful eye of Justin Cardinal Rigali. Burke replaced Rigali after he left for Philadelphia. Rigali had been sent specifically by the Vatican to straighten out St. Louis and its liberal archbishop John May by JPII. Benedict had a different agenda and removed Burke (with proof) to placate liberal pro abortion Catholic politicians like Pelosi and McCaskill and contributed to the election of then Senator Obama of Illinois in 2008. Sadly, Benedict is not what he seems.
They gotta keep those big donors happy.
Judge him by his actions instead of his words. If you do this, you'll see that his papacy is the accelerant for the demise of the church sadly.
Rain on everyone: He admired Teilhard, rejects Thomistic metaphysics, likes Balthasar and de Lubac. Hooooorrraaaayyyy
How can any Catholic be nostalgic for Pope Benedict XVI? If he was still pope, we wouldn't have had Amoris Laetitia, now would we? Or Evangelical Gaudiness or Loudautocra Sí - all thanks to Pope Francis and his docility to spiritus mundi, unique in the history of the papacy.
And STILL Pope! Long live Pope Benedict.
We have a Pope. And his name is Pope Francis! Amen! A very good, and obedient 'pupil' of his predecessors. http://w2.vatican.va/content/benedict-xvi/en/speeches/2013/february/documents/hf_ben-xvi_spe_20130211_declaratio.html As a President of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, formerly known as the Sacred Congregation of the Holy Office: Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, had a lot to say and write. This is, but one example: In his book Entretien Sur La Foi (Discourse on the Faith), Ratzinger labels himself as a "well-balanced progressive." He favors a "peaceful evolution of [Catholic] doctrine" without, however, "solitary breakaways ahead of the flock," yet "without nostalgia nor regret for times irretrievably past"; meaning, of course, quietly leaving behind the Catholic Faith (pp. 16-17). Although he shrinks back from extreme "progressivism," Ratzinger cares even less for Catholic Tradition: "We must remain faithful to the present day of the Church [l'aujourd'hui de l’Eglise], not to its past [non a l'hier], nor its future [ni au demain]" (Entretien sur la Foi, p.32). What is to be said about the more discreet, yet very effective publicity methods used by Ratzinger the Prefect in promoting the "new theology"? No sooner had Walter Kasper been named bishop of Rottenburg-Stuttgart than Ratzinger wrote to him, "You represent, in these stormy times, a precious gift from Heaven" (30 Giorni, May 1989). Long ago, Pope St. Pius X noted that all modernists are in no way able to draw from their erroneous premises truly inevitable conclusions. (cf. Pascendi).
All I know is that since Vat ll, ALL of the Popes have fallen very short to say the least of promoting and teaching true Catholicism. In their own unique and underhanded way, they have promoted the progressive subversion of the true faith. 'Pope' Francis, however, is not the least bit discreet about his very anti Catholicism being shoved down our throats on at least a weekly basis, if not daily. He seems to be the wrecking ball that they chose to finish off the Church, after the 'behind the scenes' destroyers discreetly deployed their bit by bit destruction. 'Pope' Francis is not the ROOT of the cancer that has eaten at the Church for decades. He is the INEVITABLE CLIMAX of all the evil that has been employed until now.
