This man possesses an Office:
This man is doing… sigh… a “ministry”:
Are we seeing the difference here?
Offices are ontological. Being.
Ministries are operational. Doing.
Big, big difference. Big, huge, ginormous distinction.
Distinctions. They’re everything.
Offices are not contingent upon ministries. A Pope in a coma is still the Pope.
And ministry does not bestow Office. Obviously.
The first thing we must always do? Make those distinctions. Those glaringly obvious, beat-you-over-the-head distinctions.
Resigning just a mere ministerial function (namely of the active governance of the Church), while REMAINING in the Petrine Office constitutes a canonically invalid abdication which did NOT NOT NOT vacate the See.
No vacant See, no possible conclave. Duh. Because… COMMON SENSE, AND Canon 359:
Can. 359 When the Apostolic See is vacant, the college of cardinals possesses only that power in the Church which is attributed to it in special law.
Can. 359 — Sede Apostolica vacante, Cardinalium Collegium ea tantum in Ecclesia gaudet potestate, quae in peculiari lege eidem tribuitur.
When the Apostolic See is VACANT.
Recommended for the edification of the faithful, especially for the love and reverence for the Petrine See and the true Holy Father:
This is a step towards the Rome that I hope to return to and see. A Rome in which the Venerable Rite of Pius V is celebrated exclusively every day, in every church. Can you imagine? 😍
But most importantly, a Rome, after the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart, with NO SODOMITES. A Rome in which one can safely assume that priests and unmarried laymen are NOT fags and be correct in that assumption.
Then, and only then, will I return. I’d sooner live in San Francisco now. At least those bathhouse wretches are NOT having sodomy with priests and seminarians, and frequently inside of churches, including especially St. Peter’s Basilica (usually after their morning Vatican Museums tour…. Being a “Vatican tour guide” in the Liz Lev Mafia has its… “perks”.)
