Francis Drives Neo-Traditionalists and Neo-Conservatives to Full Blown Gallicanism. Just Released Open Letter Accuses Francis of Formal and Public Heresy ---- Still Calls Him Pope ---- and demands that the "bishops of the Catholic Church" Depose Him if He Does Not Respond to and Obey Their Admonition.
|Thou art Raymond, And Upon Conservative Cardinals I will build My Church.....|
Dr. Chojnowski: This is an admonishment of the admonishers of Francis. The First See can be judged by no one. If you accuse a pope of falling into public heresy -- which you admit is done with his full knowledge and assent and pertinaciously --- you have created a new Church, which these signatories have done already by setting up the "bishops of the Catholic Church" ---- even in their minority, as judges of the orthodoxy of the man they freely and clearly claim to be pope. This is not Catholic, but rather Gallican, and differs not from the outlook of the Eastern Orthodox which would make the pope one subject to a collegial assembly of bishops. THIS IS HERESY AND YOU NOW RECEIVE MY SECOND ADMONITION, THE FIRST ONE BEING MADE IN JUNE OF LAST YEAR. I of course am only fooling here, I am not given any authority to judge a true pope BUT NEITHER ARE ANY OF THE SIGNATORIES OF THIS PUBLIC LETTER NOR ANY OF THE BISHOPS THEY APPEAL TO, NEITHER INDIVIDUALLY NOR COLLECTIVELY. Their only function, and this would be really for cardinals, would be to declare that the man occupying the papacy has deposed himself through heresy or apostasy and has ceased to hold office thereby. In this case they would just be engaging in a canonical process, not of deposing a Vicar of Christ but of declaring that no such Vicar lawfully exists and preceding to licitly and validly elect someone who would then occupy the office truly and legitimately. Let us just admit it. Francis has moved many many people away from the Catholic Faith. Many have spent years claiming to "save the Church" in such a way that they are actually destroying the fundamental moorings of the Church itself as a monarchical society.
