Bergoglio’s resignation and a new conclave to choose a true Pope is asked for

Groups of cardinals and bishops point out that "Francis" has covered for homosexual and paedophile cardinals and bishops, followers of his modernist doctrine, while only denouncing hierarchs who do not follow it, and has fallen into two serious heresies that compromise the salvation of souls: communion for the divorced and remarried, and communion for Protestants married to Catholics. The origin of professing these heresies would be the invalidity of his election, having transgressed the Constitution that regulates the papal succession: ten cardinals plotted to pressurise Benedict XVI to resign and take Jorge Mario Bergoglio to the papacy. From that moment, these cardinals and Bergoglio himself were excommunicated and he is an antipope. They propose that a new conclave be held to elect a true Pope.

The facts:

THE HERESY OF AMORIS LAETITIA:

March 2017: Thirty cardinals write to "Francis", individually and in small groups, trying to dissuade him from publishing his exhortation Amoris Laetitia, because in the draft they received they found serious errors that undermine the Gospel and the Catholic faith. The text supposedly would have been approved by the bishops gathered at the Synod for the Family. In that document the door is opened so that civilly divorced and remarried Catholics can receive communion. The cardinals warn Bergoglio that they do not approve of it because it contradicts the teachings of Jesus Christ on marriage, the Eucharist and confession.

April 8th 2017: "Francis" publishes his exhortation without addressing the accusations of the 30 cardinals.

April 25th 2017: Four cardinals (Carlo Cafarra (+), Walter Brandmüller, Joachim Meisner (+) and Raymond Burke), send "Francis" a letter setting out some doubts, "Dubia", asking him to clarify the confusion caused by his Exhortation Amoris Laetitia: Is marriage an indissoluble sacrament or not? Can a Catholic in a situation of adultery receive communion? Is one's conscience above the Commandments and the Gospel to decide that?

June 19th 2017: In the absence of an answer, the cardinals decide to publish their letter with the Dubia.

July 2017: The Bishop of Kazakhstan, Athanasius Schneider, explains in an interview with LifeSiteNews that admitting active adulterers to holy communion profanes three Catholic sacraments: "Once the divorced and remarried are admitted to Holy Communion without asking them first to live in continence and not to violate their sacramental marriage bonds -without requiring repentance and a serious intention not to sin in the future, that is, dispensing them from this requirement- we are at the same time destroying, desacralizing, three sacraments that Christ gave us: the sacrament of penance, the sacrament of the Eucharist, and the sacrament of marriage ".

August 11th 2017: A twenty-five page letter, signed by 40 Catholic clergy and lay academics, is sent to "Francis" with the title Filial Correction regarding the Propagation of Heresies (Correctio Filialis de Haeresibus Propagatis), asking him to retract from the heresy, since Bergoglio still had not given any response to the Dubia raised by the cardinals.

September 24th 2017: The Filial Correction is published, which by then has the signature of 62 clerics and academics from 24 countries. The letter affirms that the Pope, through his exhortation Amoris laetitia, as well as by other words, acts and omissions, has sustained seven heretical positions in reference to marriage, the moral life and the reception of the sacraments, causing these heretical opinions to spread in the Catholic Church. These seven heresies are expressed by the signatories in Latin, the official language of the Church.

That correction letter has three main parts. In the first part, the signatories explain why, as Catholic believers and practitioners, they have the right and the duty to issue said correction to the "Pope".

The second part of the letter is the fundamental one, since it contains the "Correction" itself. It enumerates the passages of Amoris laetitia in which heretical positions are insinuated or encouraged, and then mentions the words, acts and omissions of "Francis" that show, beyond any reasonable doubt, that he wishes Catholics to interpret those passages in a way that is, in fact, heretical. In particular, "Francis", directly or indirectly, has supported the belief that obedience to the Law of God may be impossible or undesirable, and that the Church should, at times, accept adultery as a behaviour compatible with the life of a practicing Catholic.

The last part, called "Elucidation", discusses two causes of this singular crisis. One of them is 'modernism'. Theologically speaking, modernism is the belief that God has not given definite truths to the Church but only experiences on which human beings can reflect, but those statements, contained in the Scriptures, are only provisional, never immovable dogmas. Modernism was condemned by Pope St. Pius X at the beginning of the 20th century, declaring that it is "the cesspool of all heresies", but it has seduced the minds of many clerics today. The great confusion created by modernism leads the signatories to describe the true meaning of "faith", "heresy", "revelation" and "magisterium".

A second cause of the crisis is the apparent influence of Martin Luther's ideas on "Francis". The letter shows how Luther, founder of Protestantism, had ideas about marriage, divorce, forgiveness and the divine law that correspond to those that Bergoglio has promoted through his words, acts and omissions. It also highlights the explicit and unprecedented praise that "Francis" has dedicated to the German heresiarch.

January 2018: Three bishops of Kazakhstan (Peta, Lenga, and Schneider) publish a compendium of the "Immutable Truths" of the Catholic faith, a clear refutation of Bergoglio's sophistical arguments contained in Amoris Laetitia, which opens the door to communion of the divorced and remarried. It is the same refutation, but expanded, that the 4 cardinals of the Dubia addressed to "Francis".

February 2018: More bishops are added. Monsignor Elmar Fischer bishop emeritus of Feldkirch (Austria) signs up to what began to be known as the Profession of Immutable Truths. That same month of February, Bishop Marian Eleganti, auxiliary of Coira (Chur), Switzerland, added his name to the "Profession of Immutable Truths" regarding sacramental marriage, bringing the number of bishops to nine (including Cardinal Janis) Pujats, Metropolitan Archbishop of Riga, Latvia).

By the end of February, 28 senior prelates had joined the Filial Correction and the Profession of Immutable Truths, raising the number to 32, including 15 cardinals:

1. Cardinal Walter Brandmüller, President Emeritus of the Pontifical Committee of Historical Sciences.

2. Cardinal Raymond Leo Burke, former Prefect of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura and Patron of the former Sovereign Order of Malta.

15. Mons. Héctor Aguer, Archbishop of La Plata (Argentina).

28. Bishop Andreas Laun, Auxiliary Bishop of Salzburg, member of the Oblates of Saint Francis de Sales and Professor of Moral Theology at the Faculty of Philosophy and Theology of Heiligenkreuz (Austria).

March 21st 2018: The prefect of the Vatican Secretariat for Communications, Monsignor Dario Edoardo Viganò, has to resign because of the scandal of having hidden the last paragraph of a letter in which His Holiness Benedict XVI tells him that he will not preface, as he requested, a series of 11 pamphlets on the theology of "Francis". The reason is that these pamphlets cite the German modernist theologian Peter Hünermann, who was always adverse to the Catholic teachings during the papacy of Benedict XVI and that of John Paul II.

The missing content of the letter substantially altered the meaning of the quotations that Viganò decided to highlight, which were widely reproduced in the press. These quotes seemed to indicate that Benedict XVI had read the books and that he gave them his support. The manipulation of the photo is very serious because the accredited media depend on the Vatican to obtain images of the Pope or of events that are closed to the independent press.

This is the part that Viganò intentionally mutilated:

"It is only in passing that I would like to express my surprise at the fact that the authors also include Professor Hünermann, who during my pontificate had made himself known for leading anti-papal initiatives, and he participated in the launching of the" Kölner " Erklärung "[Declaration of Cologne], which in relation to the Encyclical" Veritatis Splendor "attacked in virulent form the magisterial authority of the Pope, especially in matters of moral theology, as well as the “Europäische Theologengesellschaft"[German Society of Theologians] that he founded. It was initially considered by him as an organization in opposition to the Papal magisterium, and subsequently the ecclesial feeling of many theologians impeded this orientation, converting that organization into a normal instrument of encounter among theologians.

I am sure that you will understand my refusal and I greet you cordially.

Yours,

Benedict XVI

March 29th 2018: The newspaper La Repubblica publishes an interview, between its director Eugenio Scalfari and Bergoglio in which, for the third time, "Francis" reveals his conviction that hell does not exist and that sinful souls disintegrate after death.

A group of cardinals threatens Bergoglio with promoting his dismissal if he does not immediately retract the public statements made by La Repubblica.

"Francis" calls Monsignor Giovanni Angelo Becciu, substitute of the Secretary of State to ask for his advice. Becciu tells Bergoglio to retract the interview as soon as possible. On the 30th, the Vatican issued an official statement presenting the non-validity of the interview, but never published the actual words of the interview that actually took place.

April 2018: Bishop René Henry Gracida, Emeritus of Corpus Christi, Texas, publicly subscribes to the "Profession of Immutable Truths" (in September 2017 he had also signed the Filial Correction of 62 Catholic Academics and Prelates).

THE HERESY OF INTERCOMUNION

February 20th 2018: The German episcopal conference approves by majority a "pastoral manual" of instructions that establish when, how and why to allow the communion of Protestants married to Catholics, which is prohibited by Canon Law. Even without having been published, Cardinal Reinhard Marx, president of the episcopal conference, hastened to publicise its fundamental contents. Thirteen bishops voted against that manual.

March 22nd 2018: Seven of the thirteen bishops, among them the Cardinal of Cologne, Rainer Woelki, send a letter to the prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith rejecting the intercommunion and asking for clarification.

Edward Pentin, in the National Catholic Register, announced that His Holiness Benedict XVI was behind the letter of the seven bishops who rejected the intercommunion.

April 2018: "Francis" asks the German bishops to agree. No matter what they decide, the important thing is that there be unanimity among them. And he asks Monsignor Luis Ladaria, a Jesuit, in charge of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, to summon the German bishops opposed to a meeting to discuss the intercommunion.

May 3rd 2018: There was a meeting in the Vatican between the seven German bishops (including the president of the German Episcopal Conference), and four members of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, of the Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the Unity of Christians and the Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts. The meeting lasted three and a half hours. In the end, no agreement was reached.

May 5th 2018: Dutch Cardinal Willem Erik, archbishop of Utrecht, in an open letter urged “Francis" to provide clarity, explaining that both the Catechism of the Catholic Church and Canon Law do not allow intercommunion with Protestants.

May 7th 2018: The Dutch Cardinal Willem Erik, archbishop of Utrecht, declares that the Church is already living its "final test", prior to the second coming of Christ, prophesied in the Scriptures and described in the Catechism of the Catholic Church (CIC No. 675).

May 10th 2018: "Francis invites young Juan Carlos Cruz, a Chilean layman who was allegedly abused by a priest, to spend a week in the residence where Bergoglio lives, Santa Marta Palace. During that week they had several meetings.

May 19th 2018: The newspaper El País interviews Juan Carlos Cruz and asks if his homosexuality was mentioned in his discussions with Bergoglio. Cruz refers to Francis' words: "that you are gay, it does not matter, God made you like that". The Vatican never denied that conversation.

This statement is very serious, because it makes God the cause of the sin of sodomy, which is contradictorily condemned by the Scriptures. In Genesis -recorded by Jesus Christ in the Gospel- it is said that God: "man and woman He created them" (Gen 1:27). And St. Paul says: "Neither the adulterers, nor the effeminate, nor the homosexuals will enter the Kingdom of Heaven (1 Cor. 6, 9)." He adds: "In the same way also men, leaving the natural relationship with the woman, they burned in their lasciviousness with one another, committing shameful acts, men with men, and receiving in themselves the retribution due to their loss "(Rom. 1, 27) On the previous February 3rd, Cardinal Reinhard Marx, head of the Germans modernists, had publicly proposed that priests should carry out ceremonies where homosexual couples are blessed in the Church, which reveals that Bergoglio’s position had already permeated certain sectors of the Church.

May 24th 2018: The Archbishop of Ottawa, Terrence Prendergast, declared "It is disconcerting that Francis has told the German bishops that what they determine is acceptable as long as everyone agrees".

May 24th 2018: Archbishop Charles Kaput, metropolitan archbishop of Philadelphia and member of the Pontifical Council for the Laity, publishes in the ecumenical magazine First Things, his rejection of intercommunion: "History teaches us that what happens in Germany does not stay in Germany”.

The next day Sandro Magister publishes in Spanish:

The essence of the German proposal on intercommunion is to share Holy Communion even when there is no true ecclesial unity. This hits the very heart of the sacrament of the Eucharist, because by its true nature the Eucharist is the body of Christ.

Who can receive the Eucharist, when and why, are not just German questions. If, as Vatican II has said, the Eucharist is the source and summit of our life as Christians and the hallmark of our Catholic unity, then the answers to these questions have implications for the whole Church. They affect us all. And, in light of all this, I offer these points of reflection and discussion, speaking simply as one of the many diocesan bishops:

1. If the Eucharist is truly the sign and instrument of ecclesial unity, then if we change the conditions of communion, are we not redefining in fact who and what is the Church?

2. Intentionally or not, the German proposal, inevitably, will do just this. It is the first phase of the opening of communion to all Protestants, or to all the baptized, since marriage, in the end, is not the only reason to admit non-Catholics to communion.

3. Communion presupposes a common faith and creed, including the supernatural faith in the real presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist, together with the seven sacraments recognized by the perennial tradition of the Catholic Church. By renegotiating this fact, the German proposal adopts a Protestant notion of ecclesial identity. Simple baptism and faith in Christ seem to be sufficient, and not belief in the mystery of faith as understood by Catholic tradition and Councils. Will the Protestant spouse need to believe in the sacrament of Holy Orders as understood by the Catholic Church, for which it is logically related to the faith in the consecration of bread and wine as the body and blood of Christ? Or are the German bishops suggesting that the sacrament of Orders might not depend on apostolic succession? In such a case, we would be facing an even more serious error.

4. The German proposal breaks the vital link between communion and sacramental confession. Presumably, that does not imply that Protestant spouses must confess serious sins as a prelude to communion. But this contradicts the perennial practice and the explicit dogmatic teaching of the Catholic Church, the Council of Trent and the current Catechism of the Catholic Church, as well as the ordinary magisterium. It implies, in its effects, a Protestantisation of the Catholic theology of the sacraments.

5. If the teaching of the Church can be ignored or renegotiated, even a teaching that has received a conciliar definition (as in this case, in Trent), then can all Councils be historically relativised and renegotiated? Many modern progressive Protestants question, or reject, or simply ignore as historical baggage the teaching on the divinity of Christ of the Council of Nicaea. Will Protestant spouses be required to believe in the divinity of Christ? If it is necessary that they believe in the real presence of Christ in the sacrament, why should they not share the Catholic faith in the sacrament of Orders or in the sacrament of confession? And if they believe in all these things, why not invite them to be Catholics as a way to enter into full and visible communion?

6. If Protestants are invited to Catholic communion, will Catholics still be excluded from Protestant communion? If so, why should they be excluded? If they are not, does not this imply that the Catholic view of the sacrament of orders and valid Eucharistic consecration is in fact false and, if it is false, that Protestant beliefs are true? If the intercommunion does not mean an equivalence between the Catholic and Protestant conceptions of the Eucharist, then the practice of intercommunion moves the faithful away from the straight path. Is this not a textbook case of "causing scandal"? And will not many see it as an educated way to deceive or hide difficult teachings, in the context of ecumenical discussion? Unity cannot be built on a process that systematically hides the truth of our differences.

The essence of the German proposal on intercommunion is to share Holy Communion even when there is no true ecclesial unity. This hits the very heart of the sacrament of the Eucharist, because by its true nature the Eucharist is the body of Christ. And the "body of Christ" is both the real and substantial presence of Christ in the species of bread and wine, as well as the Church itself, the communion of believers united to Christ, their head. To receive the Eucharist means to announce in a solemn and public way, before God and in the Church, that we are in communion with Jesus and with the visible community that celebrates the Eucharist.

Mons. Charles J. Chaput

2018 May 25: Monsignor Charles Chaput gives another interview, to LifeSiteNews, in which he returns to the German case on intercommunion and describes it as a "grave offense against God".

2018 May 27: Infocatolica publishes in Spanish an interview with Cardinal Francis Arinze granted to Catholic News Service in which he declares "Communion can not be shared with non-Catholics, like beer or cake".

2018 June 3: A letter sent by Monsignor Luis Ladaria to Cardinal Reinhard Marx on May 25 is published, in which he says that "Francis" considers that the text of the German bishops is not yet mature.

A NEW CONCLAVE

2018 April 7: A Symposium is held in Rome to analyse the situation of heresy in which "Francis" has fallen, as well as the facts that lead to the conclusion that his election was illegitimate, since the constitution that governs the papal succession was violated. 18 bishops, including the bishop of Kazakhstan Athanasius Schneider, propose a new conclave to elect a true pope. The statement is published on the blog of Bishop René Henry Gracida "Abyssus Abyssum Invocat".

The central part of the statement was published in Spanish by the site "Amor a la Verdad":

"Then, what would happen if a group of cardinals who undoubtedly did not participate in acts of disobedience against Universi Dominici Gregis met, consulted and declared that according to Universi Dominici Gregis, Monsignor Bergoglio is certainly not a legitimate Roman Pontiff? In such a case, any action to be taken, including the initial investigation of invalidity, would be left to the valid members of the College of Cardinals. They could declare the Chair of Peter vacant and proceed to a new conclave, adhering to the law. They could meet with His Holiness, Benedict XVI, and discern whether his resignation, and consequent withdrawal, was done under duress, or was based on any error or fraud, or was not done in a legally effective manner, all of which could invalidate that resignation. Given the attitude of His Holiness, Benedict XVI, and the tenor of his few public statements since his resignation from the Chair of Peter, this recognition of validity on the part of Benedict XVI seems improbable.

In fact, even before a group of legitimate and authentic cardinals can decide on the validity of the alleged conclave of March 2013, they must proceed to what may be an even more complicated discernment and decide which men are probably invalid cardinals. If someone has been named cardinal by the supposed Pope who, in fact, is not Pope (but simply Monsignor Bergoglio), in reality he is not a true member of the College of Cardinals. In addition, the cardinals appointed by Pope John Paul II or Pope Benedict XVI, but who were excommunicated latae sententiae due to illegal acts or misconduct causing the invalidation of the last conclave, would also have no right to vote in the College of Cardinals. The valid members of the College of Cardinals could be much less than those that figure in the actual official list of supposed Vatican Cardinals.

In any case, the problem exceeds the level of anyone in Holy Mother Church below the rank of Cardinal. So, we must pray that the Divine Will of the Most Holy Trinity, through the intercession of Our Lady, Mediatrix of All Graces and of St. Michael, Merciful Prince, may very soon make the confusion existing in Holy Mother Church disappear by means of the action of those valid Cardinals who still form the authentic College of electors. Certainly, only the valid Cardinals can address the open and notorious evidence that point to the probable invalidity of the last supposed conclave and only these cardinals can definitely answer the questions posed here. Let the good cardinals come together to recognize that there is an ongoing Interregnum, although inactive, and that they end it, by activating a government in this Interregnum of the Holy See that starts again a process to reunite a true Conclave, that is impeccably pious, private, sacramental, secret and deeply spiritual. If we do not have a true Pontiff, then the good cardinals, doing their designated work "in view of the sacredness of the act of election" and "responding to the interior motions of the Holy Spirit" give Holy Mother Church a true Vicar of Christ, Successor of San Pedro. "

When Archbishop Henry Gracida was asked if he expected comments on his appeal, he said that he did not expect comments, but rather that a group of cardinals consider his appeal and, without saying anything publicly, begin to organize and carry out the non-recognition of Francis and a special conclave with only valid and faithful cardinals.

2018 April 22: a group of 250 priests from all over the world publish the document "A Pastoral Appeal for an Apostolic Reaffirmation of the Gospel" in 7 languages, in which they urge their bishops to abandon their silence and pronounce themselves in favour of the faith. The document was uploaded on the internet for the signature of other priests who wish to add their names.

EXCOMMUNICATED CARDINALS

The declaration of Rome, of April 7, which speaks of the invalidity of the papacy of "Francis", refers to the fact that a group of cardinals plotted to pressurise Benedict XVI to resign and open the way for Bergoglio to ascend to the chair of Peter.

September 2015: The last week of that month, Cardinal Godfried Danneels presented his biography in Brussels, and recognised in it the existence of a group of cardinals who conspired to control the succession of John Paul II and prevent Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, then Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith from being elected to the Chair of Peter, and if it happened, to force him to resign.

In the presentation of the book, Danneels revealed that he was part of a "mafia club" (with Cardinals Kasper, Silvestrini, Van Luyn, Martini, Murphy-O'Connor, Lehmann, da Cruz, Husar and Hume) that forced Benedict XVI to resign and facilitate the election of Jorge Mario Bergoglio to the papacy.

It should be noted that this "mafia", known to each other as the "Saint Galen Group”, after the Swiss abbey where these meetings were held, was self-excommunicated from the Church, because the apostolic constitution Universi Dominici Gregis, promulgated by John Paul II, prohibits plotting and agreements between cardinals to influence the election of a Pope.

2018 April 24: Monsignor Antonio Livi, dean of the Pontifical Lateran University, corroborates that indeed this group of cardinals met there for ten years, and mentions that Cardinals Martini, Kasper, Marx and Danneels, had already decided before the resignation of Benedict XVI, that the next Pope was to be Jorge Mario Bergoglio.

Article 79 reads as follows: "Confirming also the prescriptions of my predecessors, I forbid anyone, even if he has the dignity of Cardinal, while the Pontiff is alive, and without consulting him, making pacts on the election of his Successor, promising votes or taking decisions in this regard in private meetings."

And in article 81 it is established that those commitments are punished with excommunication latae sententiae (that is, automatic, without need of a declaration by anyone, ipso facto and eo ipso).

The information revealed by Cardinal Danneels a few days before the Synod, coincides with that published by Austen Ivereigh, in his book "The Great Reformer" in which he reveals how, during the 2013 conclave, four cardinals of the mafia group of Saint Galen (Kasper, Lehman, Danneels and Murphy-O'Connor) plotted to illegally orchestrate a campaign in favour of the election of Bergoglio, after the latter accepted to be the beneficiary of that plot.

From the statements of Cardinal Danneels in the presentation of his biography the following conclusions are imposed upon us:

1- A group of eight cardinals (one of them "Pope") are now excommunicated from the Church: Bergoglio, Danneels, Kasper, Silvestrini, Van Luyn, Husar, Lehmann and O'Connor. Three have already died without being informed of the excommunication: Hume, da Cruz and Martini.

2- The resignation of Benedict XVI applied only to the executive ministry of the Church, not to the munus, to the Petrine office that makes him Vicar of Christ. Therefore, being self-confined, a new conclave is needed to choose a true successor of Saint Peter.
