Edward Pentin reports on this bombshell which was dropped in the Italian press in the middle of the October Kabuki Synod Theater and thus was overloooked.
Note that Pentin had to release this on his private blog, not through his employer, which is a property of EWTN.
Here is the money quote:
“More useful” than a fraternal correction, [Msgr. Bux] said, would be to examine the “juridical validity” of Pope Benedict XVI’s resignation and “whether it is full or partial.” Jesus, [Bux] said, did not give the keys of heaven to Peter and Andrew but “said it only to Peter.” Such an “in-depth study” of the resignation, [Bux] said, could help to “overcome problems that today seem insurmountable to us.”
Msgr. Bux hits the nail on the head, and I have been repeating this ad nauseum for over two years now: This situation is actually very, very easy to fix. We don’t need to put Antipope Bergoglio on trial for heresy, nor do we need a day-by-day, event-by-event sifting of the past five and a half years to fix this. All that need be done is acknowledge publicly that Pope Benedict’s attempt to bifurcate the papacy and transform the Petrine See into a “collegial, synodal” office by only partially abdicating the administrative aspect of the Papacy was INVALID per Canon 188, and thus Pope Benedict XVI never ceased to hold the See of Peter. When a juridical action is invalid, the situation reverts to the status quo by definition. The one and only living Pope since April of ARSH 2005, whether he likes it, you like it or anyone likes it or not is Joseph Ratzinger. Thus the “conclave” of ARSH 2013 was invalid COMPLETELY IRRESPECTIVE OF WHOM IT “ELECTED”, WHETHER OR NOT THERE WAS ANY “ELECTIONEERING” OR THE “ELECTED” MAN’S ORTHODOXY. Bergoglio never has been the Pope – not for one second. Not even close. He has NEVER for one second held the authority of Peter, and thus EVERYTHING he has said and done as Antipope is completely, totally null and void. The Venn diagram of “Papacy” and “Jorge Bergoglio” has ZERO OVERLAP.
This is why Msgr. Bux says, quite rightly, that the issue of the failed attempted resignation is “more useful” than a “fraternal correction” – and note the term there, folks – FRATERNAL, not FILIAL. Fraternal means “brother”, which in this context communicates an equality of state. Filial means “son”, which does not apply to Bergoglio because Bergoglio is NOT and NEVER HAS BEEN “The Holy Father”. In saying “fraternal” and not “filial” in this context, Msgr. Bux makes his position clear with regards to Bergoglio’s rank.
The key to everything, and the solution lies in Pope Benedict’s failed attempted partial abdication. Acknowledge that REALITY, and absolutely everything subsequent to that is immediately nullified. There is no need to study and “correct” the “Bergoglian Magisterium” because there IS NO BERGOGLIAN MAGISTERIUM. This is what Msgr. Bux is communicating when he says, “overcome problems that today seem insurmountable to us.” This is classic understatement.
PLEASE SPREAD THIS FAR AND WIDE. ALL THAT IS NEEDED IS FOR A FEW PEOPLE TO SPEAK UP.
Pray for the Pope, Pope Benedict XVI Ratzinger, whether he likes it or not.
