NonVeniPacem, after a year of refuting the so-called “Barnhardt Thesis” in Trad circles, has publicly acknowledged that he is now morally certain that Pope Benedict’s attempted partial resignation was wholly invalid due to substantial error per Cannon 188, and that Bergoglio is an Antipope.
Welcome to reality. Jump in, the water’s freezing! (But in a refreshing, invigorating, one might even say vivifying way….)
What practically changes in one’s life when this truth is acknowledged? Well, one prays for the actual Pope (Benedict) at the Te Igitur, prays for Pope Benedict in the Rosary every day, and prays for the recognition and removal of Antipope Bergoglio qua Antipope, and for Bergoglio’s repentance and reversion to Catholicism, that he die in a state of grace and achieve the Beatific Vision. Also, everything happening in the Vatican makes perfect sense, and is in no way scandalous in the sense of tempting one to lose faith in Jesus Christ and His Holy Catholic Church. Truth eliminates scandal, even when the Truth is ugly. It’s a paradox, of which Christianity is replete.
