The PJMedia piece goes into greater depth than Edward Pentin’s piece.
And they’re getting it right: the key is the SUBSTANTIAL ERROR clause in Canon 188 as applied to Pope Benedict’s intent to “fundamentally transform” the papacy into a “collegial, synodal” office, consisting of both “contemplative and active” members.
Nope. The Papacy cannot be bifurcated nor transformed, even by the Pope himself. Thus the attempted partial faux-abdication was invalid, and the situation reverted to the status quo: Pope Benedict XVI reigning. And so has it remained since.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio is not now and never has been the Pope.
The truth WILL out.
Have faith in Our Lord and His promises.
Pray for Pope Benedict XVI, the one and only living Pope, whether he likes it or not.
More to come….
