Antonio Socci, who wrote the book that inspired a thousand Amazon review revisions, “The Secret of Benedict XVI: Why He Is Still Pope”, changed against the author and translator’s objections by the English publisher, Angelico Press to “…Is He Still Pope?”, tweeted this for the great feast of Sts. Peter and Paul yesterday:
“May God save him unto prolonged health, although he is elderly, and protect him from the hatred of the powers of this world.”
Well said, and well played, one would say. BUT, you gotta see the number one reply. I don’t have any idea about who this Andrea Orlandini fellow is, but the ragazzo has the skillz with the highlighter/magic marker function.
It’s iconographically perfect in every way. The more you study it, the better it gets. Some art historian should write his doctoral thesis on this image. It’s far more legit than 99% of what passes for “art history” today.
My position is that of Saint John Paul II. The Church breathes with two lungs. And the eastern lung can be Orthodox or Catholic. The status quo must be maintained. There is a whole culture and a pastoral life that must be preserved. But uniatism is no longer the way today. In fact, I’d say it’s not licit today. Today, however, the situation must be respected and the Greek Catholic bishops helped to work with the faithful.
Folks, “uniatism” means exactly what it sounds like: Eastern Catholics in full union with Rome and the Papacy. As in, NOT Eastern Orthodox, who are, by definition, in schism because they are explicitly NOT in union with Peter.
The term Uniate was coined at the end of the sixteenth century to indicate those Eastern Orthodox who entered into full and visible ecclesial communion with the Roman Pontiff and, in so doing, unfortunately fell out of communion with their Orthodox brothers and sisters. For this reason, the term Uniate took on a pejorative meaning akin to that of renegade or traitor, which led to it being abandoned in 1774, at which time the Austrian Empress Maria Theresa issued a decree prohibiting the use of the term Uniate, replacing it with Greek-Catholic, as most of her Uniate subjects were from the Greek or Byzantine tradition. Today, each Eastern Catholic Church has its own specific name, such as Ukrainian Catholic. Romanian Catholic, Melchite, Malabar etc.
So Antipope Bergoglio has thrown down the gauntlet in Romania, declared uniatism “not licit”, and therefore Uniate Catholics should either Latinize (and eventually follow Antipope Bergoglio into the apostate Antichurch), or go into schism and become Eastern Orthodox, lest they actually bring any schismatic Orthodox back into unity with Holy Mother Church and disrupt the status quo, which is schism, which must be maintained at all costs.
Proofset #925,799 that Bergoglio is an Antipope, and probably the False Prophet Forerunner of the Antichrist.
Ask not for whom the bells on the kadilnitsa jingle, Eastern Catholics. They jingle for thee.
Pope Benedict XVI: There is one Pope, and it is called “Francis”.
Another human being: But, Holy Father….
Pope Benedict XVI: Yes…?
Remember folks, as I covered in the Part 1 video, if Pope Benedict were to submit a valid resignation this afternoon, revert to his baptismal name, revert to the black cassock (assuming one could be found – they are extremely rare and hard to come by, especially in Rome), and retire to a monastery never to be seen again, this would CONFIRM that the February ARSH 2013 attempted resignation was invalid, that he had been the Pope all along, that the Cardinals had zero authority or capability of calling a conclave in 2013 (per Canon 359) because the See was never vacant, and that Bergoglio is and always has been an Antipope. No vacant See, no valid conclave. Period. No matter what the circumstances.
We know this is a possibility because Canon Law specifically provides for the contingency, and addresses it.
This is why Pope Benedict need not be ASKED anything. He needs to be TOLD that his resignation was canonically invalid, and that he is the one and only living Pope. His ERROR has no rights. His ERROR has no weight or legal standing.
What are my, or anyone’s credentials to dare claim that the Holy Father is in error? Canon Law, Objective Reality, and Truth. These are their own credentials in se. These are their own Authority. Canon Law, Objective Reality and Truth judge Pope Benedict. Not us. We just report the verdict. We just ride the coattails of Canon Law, Objective Reality and Truth.
Substantial ERROR. And yet, by the mercy and charity of the Divine Providence, completely VISIBLE.
00:00 Introduction and Acknowledgments
03:13 The answer to this controversy lies in CANON LAW because it revolves around a JURIDICAL OFFICE and a JURIDICAL ACT, specifically the 1983 Code
05:46 Canon 188 Review
06:45 What exactly is the definition of SUBSTANTIAL ERROR?
09:26 The massive difference and distinction between OFFICE (an ontological state of being) and a MINISTRY (an optional activity derivative of holding an Office)
14:12 Canon 131.1 – Delegating ministries of an Office does not CONFER the Office. Only one who holds and retains an Office can delegate ministries of said Office.
19:29 This impossible maneuver of attempting to essentially dissolve the Petrine Office by delegating aspects of the Petrine Ministry to multiple men simultaneously has been openly desired and discussed by German theologians under the influence of Freemasonry for over 50 years.
22:30 The principal motive of the object the act was DEFECTIVE
23:02 The project of the Freemasons through the Teutonic theological school of the 20th century has been the dissolution of the Papacy along the MUNUS-MINISTERIUM distinction.
23:46 The Latin of Pope Benedict’s attempted resignation of only the “MINISTERIUM”.
24:39 Canon 332.2 – The Pope must resign the OFFICE, and it need not be accepted by ANYONE (including the College of Cardinals). The only arbiter and judge of a Papal resignation is Christ THROUGH CANON LAW.
28:22 The mistranslation of Pope Benedict’s attempted statement of resignation, “Non solum propter” was MIS-TRANSLATED from Latin into Italian, and then from the erroneous Italian into English, Spanish, French, etc.
30:29 Christ bound and binds Himself to Canon Law in Matthew 16:19 (The Keys and the binding and loosing) in order to prevent CHAOS.
31:17 Look to the Fifth Joyful Mystery of the Rosary: Finding Jesus In the Temple. Where did you think I would be? In this context, a JURIDICAL issue, look for and find Our Lord in THE LAW.
32:22 Canon 332.2 “…but not that it is accepted by anyone.” This clause completely protects the Papacy from the MOB, and especially from THE COLLEGE OF CARDINALS.
33:11 Does it make any sense to you that the law (Canon, Divine, Natural) can be broken, but as long as the College of Cardinals, or even “almost everyone” goes along with it, then it is not just “okay”, but positively sanated and ratified by Our Lord Jesus Christ Himself? The new heresy of “Cardinalatry”, putting the College of Cardinals over and above the Pope and God Himself.
38:29. Pope Pius IX shooting down the notion that the Papacy is bestowed by the College of Cardinals, or even the Church. The Papacy is bestowed directly by Christ.
39:47 Can the Pope break the Natural Law? Can the Pope break the Laws of Arithmetic? Can the Pope break the Divine Law? DOES ERROR HAVE RIGHTS? Is God now giving clay to falsity? The Pope does now serve at the leisure of the College of Cardinals. NO!!
41:52 The “Universal Peaceful Acceptance” argument leads to an ISLAMIC chaos. It is an attack on REALITY ITSELF, and violates the Law of Non-contradiction. Ontological realities cannot be CHANGED in retrospect.
45:18 The Gloria Patri is a testament to the stability of REALITY in the timeline.
46:17 CANON 359 – The College of Cardinals has ZERO authority or capability to call a conclave is the See is not vacant, NO MATTER WHAT. No vacant See, no valid conclave. Period.
47:20 Reportage of Canonists strenuously objecting to the validity of Pope Benedict’s attempted partial resignation from literally within days of the February 11, ARSH 2013 announcement.
49:52 This “expanded Petrine Ministry” error did not just come out of left field. The J. Michael Miller dissertation: “The Divine Right of the Papacy in Recent Ecumenical Theology”. A collection and synthesis of the German theological academy’s plans for fundamentally transforming the Papacy – written in ENGLISH. The footnotes, bibliography and index are priceless.
55:10 The Miller dissertation agonizes of the following terms: “Ius Divinum vs Ius Humanum”, “Irreversible vs Reversible”, “Immutable vs Mutable/Changeable”, “Petrine Office vs Petrine Ministry/FUNCTION”.
57:27 Who are the key players? Kung-Kasper-Rahner-Ratzinger
1:00:39 Chapter 8 opens with Kasper’s quote, “The present crisis of the Papacy is one of legitimation.”
1:02:41 Kilian McDonnell on Walter Kasper’s plans to transform/de facto destroy the Papacy
1:06:10 The explicit distinction in the Miller Thesis between the Petrine Office and Ministry/Function. “The tow realities are, however, conceptually distinct.”
1:09:32 Ratzinger in his book “Salt of the Earth”: “Forms of exercise can change, they will certainly change… What concrete variations emerge I neither can nor want to imagine.”
1:11:40 BUZZWORD: DEMYTHOLOGIZE the Papacy. The Antichurch will need to have all the external appearances of a papacy, but will be devoid of all grace, in order to deceive even the Elect into entering the Antichurch.
1:13:33 The Ganswein Speech
1:18:40 Wherein Ganswein compared Pope Benedict’s partial abdication to the Immaculate Conception
1:20:09 Dissolving the Papacy along the Office-Ministry distinction has been the Freemasonic goal for centuries.
1:20:52 Leo XIII on the known agenda of Freemasonry to destroy the Papacy, and then the Church.
1:22:19 Vatican News quoting Bergoglio naming his agenda as “Humanism of Fraterinty” – the very name of Freemasonry.
1:23:22 The coerced non-abdication exile of Emperor Charles I Habsburg – Blessed Emperor Charles only “renounced participation in state affairs”. He did NOT abdicate.
1:25:42 What does Walter Kasper want? Money and power, specifically from the Lutheran German Church Tax revenues. Freemasonry and satan share Kasper’s goals.
1:26:41 So what probably happened? “Either you let us schism the Church, or we will schism the Church…”
1:30:33 Why does this matter? Why not just wait for Antipope Bergoglio to die? The Truth not only matters, but is the only thing that will set us free. Holding the false premise of Bergoglio ever having been the Pope leads to FALSE SEDEVACANTISM.
1:35:56 Canon 751 the standard of schism is the Roman Pontiff – so who is and is not the Pope CLEARLY matters.
1:36:59 What can be expected from going on offense and confronting the Bergoglian Antipapacy? THE GRACE AND FAVOR OF THE CROSS OF CHRIST.
1:37:55 The Visibility of the Church, the Church in Eclipse (eclipses are highly visible by definition!), and Humility
First, I think THIS WIRED PIECE argues well that Mark Zuckerberg is, in fact, attempting to form a de facto sovereign entity. The forthcoming Zuckerberg FB cryptocurrency is incredibly disturbing and dangerous. Even a failed FB “product” such as “Stories” had more users almost overnight than people who use the U.S. Dollar as their currency. Please, get off all social media, most urgently all Facebook properties, which Instagram is per the letter below:
I want to send you a note of thanks for everything you do but in particular, for your advice to get off social media. I got off Facebook long before you sounded that alarm: Facebook does nothing but breed narcissism, anger and stupidity. I never had a Twitter account, nor Myspace, nor Snapchat… The one I did hold on to was Instagram but I cut the cord last night. At first, Instagram seemed to be a harmless, visual site where I could see paintings and travel photos (I am a part-time painter when time permits). Over the course of not even a year though, the “ads” targeting me were increasingly aggressive and counter to the values I have. Likewise, those that “followed me” and I “followed” began to post narcissistic photos with captions which is basically why I left Facebook. The final straw though was this article that Canon212 posted yesterday showing Zuckerberg on video bragging about how he blocked pro-life content in Ireland prior to the evil Irish election last year that legalized all forms of abortion. There is no way I am going to support in any way, anything tied to that wicked man (turns out he is an owner or part owner in Instagram).
I have a lot fewer real friends than I used to and I am convinced the reason why is because of social media. So many people that I used to meet up with for dinner, drinks, whatnot – who live in the same town as I do – only communicate via text and social media. And these are people now in their 40s and 50s, not brain-dead millennials. No one seems to pick up the phone and call anymore and when I do run into someone on the street, I more and more hear “I’ll Instagram you” or “I’ll text you.” No. I’m not going to become a slave to that lifestyle. And (voluntary) slavery is exactly what social media quickly leads to. I am ashamed now to admit that the first thing I was doing every morning was looking at Instagram. No more.
Keep up the good fight. Everything you’re doing is much appreciated.
More info as it comes in from Romans and as the quakes populate on the global seismic websites.
Magnitude 3.9 (revised down from 4.1)
only 14 km east of Rome – that is very much inside the “suburban” city. Epicenter the town of Colonna, Italy.
2 km deep (revised from 10km) – not very deep AT ALL. Almost considered “surface”. It was well-felt in Rome, described as being every bit as severe-feeling as the October 2016 Norcia quake, which was hundreds of kilometers away. This was right beneath the city, and SHALLOW. Worst case scenario.
“It was very marked.”
“Under ten seconds.” “My chair was shaking back and forth, and then I looked at my bookcase and it was too.”
In this episode we discuss priestly celibacy and how it has been present in the Church since the Last Supper and why it is so essential theologically. We discussed the fifty dollar word “hebdomadary” and confirmed that it’s doesn’t have anything do with Jewish camels.
Act of Resignation to Divine Providence
“O Lord, my God, from this moment do I accept from Thy hands, with a quiet and trusting heart, whatsoever death Thou shalt chose to send me, with all of its pains and griefs.”

How completely awesome would it be to LITERALLY have reserved tickets for your Particular Judgment? 😂
These poor people are actually convinced that Antipope Bergoglio can excommunicate them from the Catholic Church – the One True Church that it is crystal, crystal clear Antipope Bergoglio isn’t even a member of, much less the holder of any actual authority. THIS is why the truth of the scandal of the Bergoglian Antipapacy must be shouted from the rooftops – so that people aren’t deceived into thinking that they are actually excommunicated from the Holy Catholic Church. Antipope Bergoglio has as much authority as the Amazon witch doctor with the lip plate.
Folks, being “excommunicated” from the Antichurch by a man that is probably the False Prophet Forerunner of the Antichrist sounds absolutely AWESOME to me. Where’s the line? I want in on this sweet, sweet action! Bring it!!
The bishop in question here is Bishop McGee of the diocese of Argyll in Scotland.
I saw this little analogy in the comment thread over at Mark Docherty’s NonVeniPacem blog, and thought it a brilliant little tool to help folks understand how the Papacy and Canon Law interact.
The Pope is like the dealer in a poker game who is also a player. The dealer sets the rules of the hand, yes? The dealer has the prerogative to call deuces and one-eyed jacks wild, whatever. BUT, what MUST the dealer do? He must DECLARE aloud these rules for the hand before the hand is dealt. Only by declaring aloud any and all rule modifications before the deal, and then playing by those rules himself, does the game have any INTEGRITY.
This is just common sense. If the dealer could hold “rule changes” in pectore, and only declare them ex post facto, or never at all, the result would be an islamic-satanic chaos, utterly devoid of integrity.
Folks, God has many attributes, all of which are preceded by the adjective “perfect”, and one of those attributes is INTEGRITY. God is, Himself, Perfect Integrity.
For many of us converts, it was precisely the INTEGRITY of Catholicism as a whole that was a key signal that this is THE ONE TRUE FAITH. There are no internal contradictions. Leo XIII matches up exactly with Aquinas, who matches up exactly with Gregory the Great, who matches up with Augustine, who matches up with Athanasius who matches up with The New Testament which matches up with the Old Testament.
There is a legal term for the “calling of deuces wild” – it is called DEROGATION.
As I said in the Part 2 video just released, we are under the ARSH 1983 code, warts and all, by the perfect Divine Providence, and lo and behold! Canon 38:
Can. 38 An administrative act, even if it is a rescript given motu proprio, lacks effect insofar as it injures the acquired right of another or is contrary to a law or approved custom, unless the competent authority has expressly added a derogating clause.
Mike drop. Even the Pope, an Absolute Monarch holding an Office given by Christ Almighty Himself, has to call the rules of the hand, before the hand is dealt, if he intends to change them in any way. That’s just common sense, and a rule of integrity so natural and fundamental that even Wild West card sharks lived by this simple code of the Natural Law.
