Filial Correction And FrancisVacantism

The Filial Correction is interesting in many ways.

One of them is the way the signatories put themselves in front of this frankly unbelievably disastrous papacy.

They do not leave any doubt about who is the reigning Pope. Not Benedict, or no one. The Pope is Francis. The Filial Correction exists exactly because Francis is Pope. They even go as far as to say that – bad as the man is, I add – the charisms of the role continue unabated, including the power to authoritatively bind the Church. A power which, they make clear, the Pope has not exercised in Amoris Laetitia.

(Mind: if the Pope were to get up one morning and pretend to exercise his infallibility in a way that contradicts what the Church has always believed we would not have a case of exercise of this power, but a case of formal heresy and relative sede vacante).

The Filial Correction does mention that Francis has created such a confusion that some even doubt that Francis is the Pope. But they don't. Nor do they ask for, say, Benedict's abdication from his title of “Pontiff Emeritus” and the return to his role of simple bishop (not cardinal; a Pope ceases to be a cardinal upon election, but he never ceases to be a bishop).

Francis is the reigning Pope. This is the reality under the sun. This reality the signatories acknowledge. So much so, that they react to this astonishingly bad, and very real, situation with the Filial Correction.

Francis is Pope. A true mess of a Pope, and a minion of Satan no doubt.

But Pope he is still is.

The Holy Ghost never promised us we would not get a bastard as a Pope. We have abundantly deserved one with 50 years of Aggiornamento, and we are now shown what our insolence and rebellion leads to.

We, collectively speaking, made this bed. We will, then, have to lie in it for as long as the Lord commands.

  1. Correct me if I’m wrong Mundabor, but it seems to me that if a Pope can’t error when making an infallible proclamation (because of protection from the Holy Ghost), he wouldn’t even be permitted to announce that he is going to make an infallible proclamation if that proclamation would go against Catholic teaching. Otherwise, it seems, we would always be the judge of any infallible proclamation of a Pope.

  2. He is the Pope, ok.
    But is more than a bastard, he is the most extraordinary enemy of the church in 2000 years, because HE is the Pope.
    Our Lord did not promise that Popes, would be saints, as Peter, ok, but it is really difficult to deal with THE RELIGIOUS instrument of devil at the highest pinnacle off the Church.
    He is more that an heretical Pope as Honorius, he is an apostate.
    Remembering Saint Agustin and his God City , and his man City.
    Is he in the Church ?
    Or rather he has gone out ?
    Is it necessary to be deposed ?

    • He is in with the office, but he is heretical in the way he uses it.
      Therefore, he still holds the office of Pope, but has proved unworthy of it.
      The Bishops should, in a council, ask him to “judge himself” and declare him self-deposed through his acts if he doesn’t.
      Until this happens Francis will be the unworthy holder of the office and therefore still the Pope.
