… just remind them of this, which a reader sent in with the subject header: “How in the hell is it that I have never seen this until now?”
This, of course, is the famous quote from Pope Benedict XVI Ratzinger at his “last audience” on 27 February ARSH 2013 – TEN YEARS AGO TODAY– in a packed St. Peter’s Square, and not only confirms his clear intention to only PARTIALLY abandon the Papacy, specifically the active exercise of the ministry for the governance of the Church, but also confirms that +Ganswein’s remarks at the Gregorianum on 20 May ARSH 2016 were NOT +Ganswein’s own personal fabrication, but an accurate reportage of Pope Benedict XVI Ratzinger’s mindset with regards to his failed attempt at partial abdication and bifurcation of the Petrine Office.
Read it over and over again until your conscience forces you to acknowledge the truth of what it so clearly and obviously says:
“The ‘always’ is also a ‘for ever‘ – there can no longer be a return to the private sphere. My decision to resign the active exercise of the ministry does not revoke this. I do not return to private life, to a life of travel, meetings, receptions, conferences, and so on. I am not abandoning the cross, but remaining in a new way at the side of the crucified Lord. I no longer bear the power of office for the governance of the Church, but in the service of prayer I remain, so to speak, in the enclosure of Saint Peter. Saint Benedict, whose name I bear as Pope, will be a great example for me in this. He showed us the way for a life which, whether active or passive, is completely given over to the work of God.”
-Pope Benedict XVI Ratzinger
27 February, ARSH 2013
Can. 188 A resignation made out of grave fear that is inflicted unjustly or out of malice,invalid by the law itself., or simony is
Can. 332.2 If it happens that the Roman Pontiff resigns his office, it is required for validity that the resignation is made freely and properly manifested but not that it is accepted by anyone.
And so, we continue to fast and pray the Matthew 17:20 Intention without ceasing:
-That Bergoglio be publicly recognized as an Antipope and removed and that the whole of his usurpation be nullified.
-That Pope Benedict XVI Ratzinger be publicly recognized as having been the one and only living Pope from April ARSH 2005 until his death on 31 December ARSH 2022, and for the Petrine See in se.
-That Antipope Jorge Bergoglio repent, revert to Catholicism, die in the state of grace in the fullness of time, and someday achieve the Beatific Vision.
-For the repose of the soul of Pope Benedict XVI Ratzinger.
