the relationship between Papa Benedetto and Pope Francis, and arrogance of Andrea Grillo …

RELATIONS BETWEEN POPE FRANCIS AND PAPA BENEDETTO, And ARROGANCE OF ANDREA GRILLO …

.

Benedict XVI reasoned too much in human terms, He thought over his human weakness - as is clear from the official reason for his act of renunciation - and too little in the way of faith, that too little thought to the supernatural strength of the charism of Peter. Anyhow, He did not make it. Hard to know if insurmountable objective limits, independent from his will, humility or lack of courage and faith in the charism of Peter. Let us leave to God's judgment on his conscience and his responsibility. But the fact itself will remain in history. Benedict there was an example of fidelity to the doctrine, but not of example in courage.

the Supreme Pontiff Benedict XVI and Pope Francis I, Both portraits in different times on the same chair

coexistence and almost living together in the same place, the Vatican City State, two legitimate Popes, one of which ruler and the other so-called emeritus, It had never occurred in the history of the Church. All this leads us to question legitimately the mysterious status legal of Pope Benedict XVI. It is an entirely new, that may surprise you, but it must not upset, because it does not affect anything for the continuity of tradition and apostolic succession and the primacy of the Roman Pontiff. Certainly it is subject to the monarchical principle of the leadership of the Church, or otherwise could be, since it is willed by Christ for unity, stability, universality, Justice, concord, freedom, progress and peace in the Church.

.

Certain, it is a fact legitimate of primary importance for the fate of the Church, concerned in this case at its summit, that, however, requires the invention and adoption of expedients, found and legal arrangements have novel, making it possible to deal with, evaluate and regulate prudently, the light of faith, this new situation, although it does not seem that we are totally ignorant of similar cases, such as the retired bishop of a diocese or the resignation or termination of the assignment of a Superior in a Religious Institute.

.

In an unprecedented event like, we have to see one that Pope Francis calls "surprises of the Holy Spirit". Apparently such a thing would seem to indicate that we are in a situation that contrasts with the essence or at least with the good life of the Church. If so, certainly this situation should be remedied, although it can be expected that it will not last long, given the advanced age of both Pontiffs, to which, however, we wish you a long and happy life, rich in good works and spiritual benefits.

The possibility that a pope face waiver, It was already provided for in canon law [cf. can. 332 §2. See text WHO]. But then it does not regulate those to be the conduct and status legal renunciant. The expression Pope Emeritus therefore it arouses in some of the problems. They argue that it is not possible to make a comparison with the Bishop Emeritus, because these remains bishop; but a Pope who resigns is no longer Pope. The case of Benedict XVI is unique in the history of the Church, on canonical and ecclesial plane, because in the past very rare that you are registered, The dropout is always returned to its status Previous election to the Holy Throne. Therefore, in the opinion of several canonists and theologians, Benedict XVI would have to return to the simple cardinal condition. Leaving fact that you call Pope Emeritus, It may give the impression that it wants to somehow maintain at least morally, if not legally, special influence on the reigning Pope, similarly precisely what can a bishop emeritus against the owner. The other part, Benedict XVI has professed full obedience to Pope Francis as the legitimate pope since before his election, When it had to say before the Cardinals should meet in conclave to elect a successor [see Official Video WHO].

.

Benedict XVI himself, in un’intervista a Peter Seewald, He still recognizes Pope, but in a sense "deeper and more intimate" [1]; He says to "maintain the responsibility that has taken on an inner sense, but not in function. For that gradually you will understand that the papal ministry is not diminished, though perhaps it is more clearly his humanity ".

.

Those who do not approve of the expression Pope Emeritus see more favorably and right thing, if not dutiful, cite the example of the famous renunciation of Papa Celestino V, which by the way it was done Santo, which, left the government of the Church, he returned to the simple monaco what condition it was before.

To light conveniently this complex situation, to understand its meaning in the light of faith, find legal ways of settlement and give it an appropriate adjustment, correcting defects and remove any risks or hazards present and future, we would like to suggest to the reigning Pope, in collaboration with the Holy Father Benedict XVI, with the help and advice of good employees, canonists, moralists, ecclesiologists and prophets, to make use of the following four-fold criterion of judgment, always keeping in mind the desire of Christ, the good of the Church, God's honor and the salvation of souls.

.

The first check to do, it should not be difficult, It is whether this coexistence of two Popes offends in some way natural justice or the moral law or Christian brotherly love. If it passes this first check, We have to see if it responds to a prompting of the Holy Spirit. If the thing also passes to this sieve, then you need to check whether contrasts somewhat with the essential constitution of the Church and the papacy. But to do work very wise and appropriate to the magnitude of the spiritual question, You must refer to the history of the Church and the examples of Saints, in which, although in other fields, it appeared evident to operate innovative and surprising of the Holy Spirit. Only then you can move on the establishment of appropriate legal rules relating not only to the present case, but also to possible future cases.

.

One thing is certain, after more than four years from the act of renunciation of Benedict XVI, the figure of the so-called Pope emeritus it has not been established, least of all inserted into the Code of Canon Law and regulated by the laws of the Church, because the title of "Emeritus" given to a Pope who made free act of renunciation, creates problems maybe not easy to solve in the legal, theological level. Therefore, until l 'emeritato applied to the Roman Pontiff will not be established and governed by canon law, It will remain just a figure of speech to indicate an unusual and temporary situation. And in an unusual and temporary situation, and a legal institution, the difference that exists is not a small matter.

With the foregoing circumstances we acknowledge to Professor Andrea Grillo had taken into account the serious and difficult problem of status legal Benedict XVI. Cricket, who it is also a lawyer, has noticed the existence of a legal area remained uncovered, and as such need to be adjusted in a very delicate sector of Church life: none other than the pontifical right [see full text of the interview, WHO].

.

Pope Francis It seems to care little about this issue. But this means that on it are raging interventions and the most strange and contradictory opinions, reflective, as usual, the unfortunate contrast between Lefebvrians and modernists, resulting on the one hand to please the world and the enemies of the church exterior and interior and the other, to disconcert and disturb the minds of the good faithful on what is a cornerstone of the Catholic understanding of the Church, that is, the Petrine ministry.

.

Unfortunately Grillo He has addressed this very serious and urgent matter without giving exhibition based on the above criteria, on the contrary, in a superficial way and it is also irresponsible, as if it were to expel or punish a political party, a former executive who does still affect the legitimate successor. moreover, from the tone of reprimand misericordista Grillo against Benedict XVI, It suggests a mood biased and executioner and a seemingly rational argument, but actually sophistry against so-called Pope Emeritus, he hinted, called "bishop emeritus".

.

Cricket, with the style of a tribune of the people of '89 or of a sessantottino that decreed summary justice against the bosses, It seems to suggest more than enjoin, to the Pope Emeritus, to go into exile away from the Vatican and silenced forever, motivating this with specious arguments and inconsistent, that only show the Grillo anger at a great theologian who discovered his altars. For this, in my view, Grillo - I turn to him fraternally, as a theologian theologian -, to avoid increasing the bad reputation that has already been procured with other outputs of the genus, He would do well to keep quiet. And if you want to talk, thing, and as a Catholic theologian and as a lawyer has the right and duty to do, speak;, but grain of salt and as sobriety but especially avoiding to extinguish the fire with gasoline.

.

Perhaps Grillo does not realize the serious extent of his judgments in a church and ecclesiastical situation already plagued stubborn and torn apart by internal conflicts between extremist adverse parties of Lefebvre and the modernists, where the mediation space seem to shrink by the day and the gap between the enemy is becoming an abyss for continuous emergence on the scene of subversive characters and raving, who pretend to be friends and collaborators of the Holy Father, when in fact their Catholicism resembles the doctrine of the Church as the witch of the seven dwarfs look like Snow White.

.

The Supreme Pontiff Benedict XVI, archive images

It arouses really suffering the impudence with which Grillo accused Benedict XVI of reason contempt for the mere fact of having supported with wise words the value of liturgical silence, if we keep in mind the strength and authority with which he, in the wake of his previous activities as Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, alongside the mighty Author of Faith and Reason and in the line of the great recent Popes retribution, and promoters of reason in faith, by Blessed Pius IX, San Pio X, Pio XI, Pio XII, St. John XXIII, Blessed Paul VI, bravely and wisely he supported and defended the dignity of human reason ("Enlargement of reason"), premised on the moral (the "non-negotiable values"), preamble of faith and theology tool, endured opposition from scientistic, irrationalists, Lutherans, Modernist, idealisti, Freemasons, Communists and Muslims.

.

Unhappy and out of place thus the idea of ​​cricket to silence Professor Joseph Ratzinger in the greatest theologians of the twentieth century, showing it to be thus scarcely able to grasp the strength and nobility of thought of the man who for twenty years has fought as head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith for the values ​​of reason and faith. Indeed, with his recent criticism hugging the teasing turned to the ethics of Cardinal Carlo Caffarra and St. Giovanni Paolo II, Grillo clearly shows that he was ready to upset the real figure, if it's true, as he claims, Pope Francis has revolutionized the concept of marriage of Blessed Pius IX, Pius XI and St. Giovanni Paolo II [See previous articles, WHO, WHO, WHO, WHO, WHO].

.

Cricket seems just ignore what is the sacred right and duty of Papa Benedetto to express their authoritative thought, in his capacity as a great theologian now counted among the greatest contemporary theologians. It's simply ridiculous that Grillo, infected modernism, purports to teach as Benedict should pose against Pope Francis. The charge that Grillo ago to Benedict to get out of his seat and embarrass Francis or even to interfere in his apostolic authority with his preface to the book by Cardinale Robert Sarah is absolutely unfounded. Benedict knows much better how Grillo, in what way and to what extent a theologian can and must express their thoughts to help the papal magisterium, he who as prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith issued in 1990 the The gift of truth, an illuminating statement on the Ecclesial Vocation of the Theologian [see text WHO].

.

I am sure however that the Holy Father, who has reverence for Benedict and if he keeps it close, ad manus, as its authoritative and wise counselor, greatly he appreciated the humble intervention, useful and measured Benedict, who knows how to juggle with the Supreme Pontiff, having joint himself in his person the role of the Pope with that of a theologian loyal to the Magisterium.

An encyclical written for four hands

.

The Supreme Pontiff Benedict XVI, archive images

The same encyclical of Pope Francis, Light of Faith, as is known, resume and complete the work that Benedict had started and left unfinished with his act of renunciation, much that has been written encyclical called "four hands". In it you may feel an echo of the veneration of St. Augustine ratzingheriana, student of Plato as mystagogue the mysteries of faith: "In the life of St. Augustine we find a significant example of the way in which the research of reason, with his desire for truth and clarity, It has been integrated into the horizon of faith, from which he received new understanding » [n. 33].

.

We also know what Benedict XVI He highlighted the contribution of Greek philosophy to the understanding of the Word of God explained and formulated by the Church in dogma. And in fact, the text goes on: "On the one hand, Augustine welcomes Greek philosophy of light with its insistence on vision. His meeting with the neo-Platonism did know the paradigm of light, which comes down from above to illuminate things, and is thus a symbol of God […] The other part, but, the practical experience of St. Augustine, he himself tells in his confessions, the defining moment of his journey of faith was not that of a vision of God, beyond this world, but rather that of listening, in the garden when he heard a voice saying: "Take and read"; he took the volume with the Letters of St. Paul focusing on the thirteenth chapter of the Romans. He appeared as the God of the Bible personal, able to speak to the man, to get off to live with him and accompany her journey through history, manifesting itself in the time of listening and response. And yet, This encounter with the God of the Word has not led St. Augustine to reject the light and vision. He has integrated both perspectives, always guided by the revelation of God in Jesus. And so he developed a philosophy of light that welcomes what their word reciprocity and opens a space to freedom of gaze towards the light " [ibid.].

.

In Sant’Agostino listening to the Word of God in faith is the preparation and introduction to the blessed vision of God in heaven. In fact, he is well aware that this world can know God only indirectly, for mediation of creatures, as St. Paul says: "Now we see through a mirror darkly, but then face to face " [The Cor 13,12].

Benedict XVI and Francis I meet, as it is obvious for two Popes, in recognition of this essential function of reason in the acquisition of faith, supremely important gesture for the salvation of men of our time, Lost in reason even before the faith. And if Papa Benedetto insisted so much as a theologian in highlighting the reason as the basis of faith, Pope Francis, also aware of the urgency to rebuild the dignity and powers of reason, in its own way also he works for this noble end, from a shepherd's perspective and not as a theologian, when so insistently emphasizes human values, so as to arouse discomfort if not scandal in those who would like her more in tune speeches and more attention to spiritual values, the sacred, of religion and the supernatural.

.

But already Pius XII, you certainly can not accuse you of little attention to spirituality, He was aware of the need to restore the human being as a condition for building up the Christian and Blessed Paul VI stressed the need to precede evangelization and human promotion in a world that has lost the notion of reason and by that notion man, if it is true that man is a rational animal.

.

Benedict and Francis complement each other

.

The thing that is plain for all are the good external relationships and the mutual respect between the two certificates Papi, reports they have publicly expressed on several occasions; this is already a good basis to address and resolve the question of a certain contrast to a greater depth. In my way of seeing Pope Francis would do well to collect and make money from the rich and precious inheritance of Benedict XVI, as I tried to show in my recent article on The island of Patmos. Pope Francis wanted to give impetus to the reform of the Council, but perhaps that this was not even the intention of Benedict? Only that Benedict was concerned to defend the council modernist interpretation Rahner. Vice versa, the way in which Francis enhances the council means that sometimes he gives the impression of approaching modernist interpretation and you can see that avoids highlight the opposition, which Benedict XVI spoke between continuity and rupture around the issue of the Council's relationship with tradition. It seems that for Francis problems are mainly from righteousness, by conservatism and the "stiffness", while it is too lenient to the much more serious deviations historicist, relativistic, Mutabilist, subversive and modernist. He also highlights a tendency to reconcile the pastoral misericordista, Ratzinger had tried to stem.

.

It should be that the two Popes they knew better support and complement each other and work together better, the use of the qualities of each: Benedict XVI can help the reigning Pope with Cardinal Gerhard L. Müller in the promotion and defense of the sound doctrine, correcting ecumenism opportunist, inconclusive and relativist Cardinal Walter Kasper. A Papa Francesco, therefore, still remains the onerous task of making efforts to achieve the objective of the last Unitatis redintegratio, even rejected by Kasper line, objective which provides, removed "obstacles" and "gaps", "Access of our separated brethren into full communion with the Catholic Church" [cf. No. 3].

So also in the dialogue with Islam, it is necessary that Pope Francis, the faithful to reconcile Islam Our age, that shows the contact points of Islamic theology with Christianity, in order to offer the Church a complete view of Islamic theology, complementing the conciliar teaching with that of Papa Benedetto expressed in the famous keynote Regensburg, which highlights the irrational aspect of God and fatalistic Koranic, Grillo thing should keep in mind before accusing Benedict of irrationalism [text and video WHO and WHO].

.

In each of the Priestly Society of St. Pius X, Pope Francis has shown kindness by giving permission to priests to hear confessions and celebrate weddings, but still remains the opposition of the Society to the doctrines of the Council reported by Benedict XVI and the pro-Protestant judgment given by Archbishop Marcel Lefèbvre in Mass Novus order, things that, as he warned the predecessor of the reigning Pontiff: "Prevent the Brotherhood of being in full communion with the Church" [cf. WHO].

.

Pope Francis makes up and remedy the limited social sensitivity of Papa Benedetto - he humbly acknowledged -, with the tireless preaching of the opening to the next, with the enunciation of the principles of social and economic justice, with concrete actions in this field, with the promotion of mercy, conversion, forgiveness, Peace and reconciliation, about the big humanitarian issues of how to deal with the moral degradation in families and in society, youth education, the work of pacification to be conducted between warring, political corruption and customs, opposition to fundamentalism and terrorism, the food problems and health, those posed by inequality and economic inequality, labor exploitation of children and women, the drama of immigration and the problem of the survival of vast human masses without the need, the urgency of the care and respect for nature, the problem of climate change, with its harmful consequences in poor populations.

In the sensitive issue of liberation theology, Cardinal Müller highlights by quoting some of Gustavo Gutiérrez statements, the positive elements of said theology, that the then Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, as head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, He had already highlighted in Education message of freedom of 1986. Says Cardinal Müller: "In a speech in the mid-nineties to the presence of Cardinal Ratzinger, Gustavo Gutiérrez stressed that "it is important that as a final step the option for the poor is an option for the God of the kingdom announced by Jesus Christ", and added: "The ultimate reason for the commitment to the poor and oppressed lies not so in the company analysis, or in the direct experience that we can make poverty, and even in our human compassion. All these things are useful reasons, which will no doubt play an important role in our lives and in our human relationships. Nevertheless, our commitment as Christians is based on faith in the God of Jesus Christ. It is an option theocentric and prophetic, which is rooted in the gratuitousness of God, making it necessary '' [2].

.

It is known as Pope Francis sympathize for the positive aspects of liberation theology, which of course does not mean that he ignores the risk that it may be contaminated by Marxism, reported by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith in 'Instruction on Certain Aspects of the "Theology of Liberation" of 1984 [see text WHO].

The publication joy dell'amore He did think to some conflict between the Magisterium of Pope Francis to Papa Benedetto, with particular rifermento the permission of the Communion for divorced and remarried. As I have explained many times over The island of Patmos, the possibility that Francis grant in special cases, as those given by Cardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio, the said permission, within its power to regulate the administration of the Sacraments, so it remains saves magisterial continuity between the two Popes in the dogmatic, as the rest otherwise could not be. Rather, those who create confusion in this field with their situationist historicism and relativism are Cardinal Kasper and the Cricket. True interpreter of the papal document, indicated by the same Pontiff, instead Cardinal Christoph Schönborn.

.

The most successful people Pope Francis gets on his travels than Papa Benedetto is not due to a better evangelization or at a higher Christian proposal, how to enhance the consideration of anthropological and social aspects. The high number of non-believers or former enemies of the Church, those that remain, but weaving rave to Pope Francis does not seem mostly motivated by the fact that they are mostly seen in him the man of God and the witness of God's kingdom or perhaps the Vicar of Christ, but it seems in part influenced and bewildered by the powerful mass media controlled by Freemasonry, skillfully presented to the public a liberationist Pope, Modernist, populist, wire-Lutheran and misericordista, lassista and permissive. All defects that the Holy Father would seem to have, but that really does not, because it would be too severe, although its language is not always clear, the carelessness of some of his pastoral choices, the hardness of certain interventions on that they know of authoritarianism, the partiality of certain opinions that divide rather than unite, and the ambiguity of his moral conduct, that smacks of opportunism, seem to favor this interpretation.

The popular success It is not always a sign that the preacher announced the Gospel in its entirety outrageous and irritating to the world. If the preacher likes the world, It is not necessarily a good sign. The Gospel message, in truth, It arises to two levels of content, which they appear clearly by the example of Jesus himself: one, relevant to the needs and human rights, especially the poor, the suffering and the oppressed. In fact, Jesus begins his preaching calling to conversion and exhorting to good works, and announcing the coming of the kingdom of God, kingdom of mercy, forgiveness, of freedom, justice and peace, and performing miracles. the crazy, comprehensibly, I am very satisfied for such a benefactor, and flock to the Lord, praising him. But then Jesus, at a certain point, after having made credible with these works of charity and mercy and common human wisdom teachings, passes to announce heart the gospel message, which it is the mystery of the cross and its mysteries of salvation and eternal life, apparently difficult parts to reason and to human interests, but in reality the sources of true bliss, like for example, when he speaks of the Eucharist [cf. GV 6] or she announces to Peter, his passion, not to mention when he announces to be the Messiah Son of God to judge the living and the dead. It is at this point that the crowds thin out, Jesus remains alone and encounters such opposition, The lead that the cross.

.

Pope Francis has stopped until now mainly on the first level and has done some good. But good Catholics and true evangelizers, and not the masses manipulated by clever and flatterers of the Pope, expect that he steps to the second level of preaching, giving the impression he to dwell too much on the first, almost out of human respect or fear of threats that opposition comes from the world, Today especially the Masons, penetrated the Church, since the time of Blessed Pope Paul VI, by means of the modernists and rahneriani. Certain, the Pope will have under the eyes what happened to Benedict for announcing Christ Crucified, especially in its beautiful and most learned Christological trilogy. Francesco is very careful not to pull on the aggression of the modernists, of rahneriani, communists, Lutheran and Islamic. He tries every possible point of contact and dialogue; and that's fine. But sometimes the two-way expressions, that may have an orthodox sense, ma anche eterodosso, thus easily exploitable by the enemies of the Church. And this defect, adapted to generate misunderstandings, defect that has been repeatedly criticized by many, also good Cardinals, that's no good; therefore it is necessary that correct. In addition to, Francis will not be silent endlessly about the errors of the enemies of the Church. And then, in my view, would do well to put more light what is the original substance the Gospel, of which speaks too little. We ask the Holy Spirit and to the intercession of the Madonna that they get to Pope Francis the strength to resist these enemies, and to overcome.

.

How and why it has come to this situation? And as you can get out?

.

What, if anything, we might ask It is how come, and because of such events or the reasons why the Church today has two popes simultaneously and how they could and the relations between them should be considered and regulated. The recent speeches by Andrea Grillo about, give the impression, as they say, He entered a bull in a china shop. It might indeed imagine anything more coarse and offensive to Benedict XVI, nor blatantly and sycophantic courtier against Pope Francis. It is evident the inability of Grillo to mitigate, as it should, the undoubted although not serious existing contrast between the pastoral elite Ratzingerian and that populist bergogliana. What is needed by all means working to foster collaboration between the two Popes for the good of the Church.

There is also to be noted that From the time of Blessed Pope Paul VI began will appear increasingly clear, until you get to the evidence of our handheld days, that the papacy is the subject, by the Freemasonry, a systematic operation of encirclement and isolation from the rest of the Church, aimed at preserving the apparent tributandogli school treat, but actually making it ineffective government action, in order to empty it of its own value, Christ willed, for debasing to a simple function or symbolic representation, the type of the British monarchy or dell'O.N.U Presidency or the Orthodox patriarchates or Protestant ministers, while the actual government of the Church would be entrusted to a group of modernist power, long hand Freemasonry, arisen in the episcopate and the College of Cardinals. And theor theological instrument which Freemasonry has used and uses to conduct this operation, Rahner's theology, which, passed off as theology of Vatican II, thanks to a methodical perseverance and good organization to, lavishly funded by Freemasonry, It was made to penetrate subtly in educational institutions of the Church, without that the papacy was able to prevent it, to obtain a bishopric and a cardinal rahneriano, not subject to the papacy, but the Masons. This colossal task diabolical, today, It is largely successful. This has led to a Church Masonic - modernist Church - within the Catholic Church. Some call it "neochiesa». We use then the right expression: it's a false church.

.

About Rahner, some might remember that in the end Ratzinger and Rahner collaborated accounts together in the work of Vatican II. It's true. But when Ratzinger was elected to the Sacred Throne, a lot of water had flowed under the bridge. Indeed, as recounted in the same Ratzinger in said interview with Seewald, and as shown by the history of post-conciliar theology, finished the Council, Ratzinger saw that Rahner, under the mask of the progressive - in which there is nothing wrong - in fact it was a Modernist, which it is clearly heresy. A quel point, Ratzinger, that he intended to remain faithful to the Magisterium of the Church, not only he began to distance himself from Rahner, but to attack him severely, as he deserved. In response,, Rahner and Ratzinger went to war against fellow kunghiani, a war that is still going on.

St. John Paul II, For its part, he rewarded the courage Archbishop Joseph Ratzinger in the making 1981 Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. The conclave 2005 it further rewarded with his election as Supreme Pontiff. But in the meantime, The powerful rahneriani who had penetrated the sacred college, They managed to gain the favor of the pro-rahneriani, therefore they reversed from positive to negative orientation towards Benedict. So now is the act of renunciation of Benedict XVI, after it was pushed into an untenable situation. Shortly after Benedict XVI was succeeded by Pope Francis, that in the minds of their rahneriani had to be a docile instrument to maneuver at will. But they did not count right. They have missed the fact that Pope Francis, even with all its human limitations, is Vicar of Christ. For this Pope Francis balance held the helm of the Church, despite its apparent maneuverability.

.

The free act of renunciation of Papa Benedetto, It happened as he himself stated in full freedom and without any coercion, It is therefore explains how the desire not lend itself to this abject operation, not to give in to this imposition, and at the same time assume the belief that he could not cope. Who is fighting against an enemy too strong, he gives up, refusing to yield to its demands or to join or to have part of his wicked intentions and let him use. This was the choice of Benedict, dictated by full and conscious freedom. However, this choice is a commendable appearance and reprehensible aspect. The commendable aspect, as, fine theologian from what was, Ratzinger knew the deception and seduction of modernism, so absolutely he refused to accomplice to do with it. The appearance reprehensible, Benedict because he reasoned too much in human terms, He thought over his human weakness - as is clear from the official reason for his act of renunciation - and too little in the way of faith, that too little thought to the supernatural strength of the charism of Peter.

Perhaps that in previous centuries many Roman pontiffs were not found in similar situations? Yet they did not waiver, They have stood up to the last, and some have faced martyrdom. The head of a company does not have a divine charisma that allows him to remain always in its place, but the Head of the Church yes, It owns to the promise and the will of Christ, who assists him through the work and grace of the Holy Spirit actions [cf. LC 22, 31-34; GV 20, 19-29]. Benedict XVI, anyway, He did not make it. Hard to know if insurmountable objective limits, independent from his will, humility or lack of courage and faith in the charism of Peter. Let us leave to God's judgment on his conscience and his responsibility. But the fact itself will remain in history. Benedict there was an example of fidelity to the doctrine, but not of example in courage.

Papa Benedetto has made a waiver because it is noticed to be betrayed even by his closest collaborators, as it became clear in the story of Paolo Gabriele. And because the cross was becoming too heavy, not if it is felt to continue working with collaborators treacherous. "Dad", Benedict says [3], 'Daily encounters the cross […] If a Pope received only applause, you should ask yourself if you're doing something wrong […] The Pope will always be a sign of contradiction, ... but that does not mean that he must die under the ax '. It is not allowed to escape from a too heavy load. Benedict found himself at one point surrounded by treacherous collaborators, modernists and rahneriani. And he realized that in those conditions was no longer able to govern the Church, hindered by those who most needed help.

.

Pope Francis, on the other hand, more energetic character and leathery, aware of the fact that the Church has to have a guide, although aware of the situation, It started confidently in the hands of the Holy Spirit, initiating action difficult, with which on the one hand saves the essence of the Petrine ministry; but on the other side must give up points to avoid the worst. But he has already said that, for Christ's sake, He is ready to face martyrdom.

Meanwhile, the operation of the Masons and Judah It has reached such a point of maturation, that, after decades of rise to power, and failure of the papacy, now they have come close to the throne of Peter, within the same State Secretariat. The pot is ready. Missing cover. But that there will never be, as, as the saying goes, the devil is, but not the covers. The true Church will endure, under the guidance of the Pope, Despite the work that Masonry is currently trying to convince, between flattery and threats, surrounding him with fake employees, to transfer to its conception of the papacy not as a guide of the Church but merely as a representative and expression of the collegiality of believers.

.

a meeting that you had no memory, although in the history of the Church, very few and very rare cases, There were no waivers to the Sacred Chair of Peter: the meeting between the Predecessor and the Successor.

Since God wants everyone to be saved and gives everyone the means to save themselves, we have to, together with the Holy Father, have more confidence, as the Church has always had confidence, could drive, under the impulse of the Holy Spirit, with the preaching and good example, all the peoples of the land to the Catholic Church, whatever the culture or religion to which they belong. This is the meaning of The gospel of joy, in line with the evangelizing thrust of the Council and all of the post-council Papi. In particular, against doing good today, which it is a real spirit drug, and for an authentic conception of mercy, on which so much he insists the Pope, it should be noted that the preaching of mercy and trust in God but must be accompanied by love for the sinner, but at the same hatred for sin, and then from the warning that God punishes sin, why should arouse the fear of God and the absolute desire not to offend. In this way the Church, arousing in the hearts a sense of their responsibility before God, will re-offer persuasively the true way of the Gospel and the sanctification of men, ridding himself of a false misericordismo that leads to ruin.

RESPONSE Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, CARDINALE ROBERT SARAH, It IS NOT MADE A LONG WAIT:

 

"I pray devoutly for those who have the time and patience to read this book carefully [The power of silence, see WHO]: God help them forget the vulgarity and baseness used by some people when they refer to “Foreword” and its author, Pope Benedict XVI. arrogance, the violence of language, disrespect and inhuman contempt for Benedict XVI are evil and cover the church with a mantle of sadness and shame. These people demolish the Church and his profound nature. The Christian does not fight against anyone. The Christian has no enemies to defeat " [see in The New Compass Quotidianto, WHO].

About isoladipatmos

4 thoughts on "the relationship between Papa Benedetto and Pope Francis, and arrogance of Andrea Grillo …

  1. Forgive me father, As he writes, and the words he uses sound ungenerous toward Benedict XVI, who actually lived a martyr throughout his papacy (constantly mocked by the dominant culture, misunderstood and disobeyed by a good part of the clergy and in fact also betrayed and abandoned by the intimate).
    “Dear friends - at this moment I can only say: pray for me, that I may learn to love the Lord more. Pray for me, that I may learn to love even more his flock - you, Holy Church, each of you and all of you together. Pray for me, because I may not flee, for fear, the wolves. Let us pray for each other, For the Lord will carry us and we will learn to carry one another.” They were the words of the homily beginning of his Pontificate https://w2.vatican.va/content/benedict-xvi/it/homilies/2005/documents/hf_ben xvi_hom_20050424_inizio-pontificato.html
    The waiver was rather an act of self-denial, exemplary courage to recognize their own inadequacies occurred in governing the Church, a strong testimony of total abandonment to God “continue the good fight” with the ultimate weapon of prayer.

  2. Reverend P. Cavalcoli, Grillo sings and prances allows “this and that” because it is a puppet in the hands of the puppeteer who pulls the strings and ensures impunity. The Card. Sarah is already choosing an African diocese in which he will retire in good order, in a few days will see it. Its history is as always well-structured and appealing, but as is usually like a beautiful harmonious headless body. Freemasonry and the Church (However, not all) It is like the anecdote of who was in search of the donkey, but he did not notice that he was sitting on the back. In this case it's the poor little donkey trying his master (Freemasonry) but he does not realize that he is sitting on it. The church in this grave moment needs no martyrs of cerchiobbottisti.

  3. Hermeneutics brilliant father.. but only useful to show what can not be proven. I'm sorry to admit it, but more time passes, the more the gap between this pope and his predecessors appears unbridgeable. For us ordinary believers today is becoming increasingly difficult to recognize themselves in the new course impressed the Church. I do not stunt to prove a continuity that escapes sense of faith us lay, would not convince! As believers and, as such, faithful to the Roman Pontiff, We can only hope that our Pope shows more clearly confirm our faith in, because undoubtedly, unfortunately, a powder’ His choice of bewilderment with some questionable, It generated it!

    About Benedict XVI think it wise to suspend judgment on his decision to renounce the papacy, because there may be elements uncertainties that may cause us to jump to erroneous conclusions, perhaps ungenerous towards her. The only thing we can do objectively about his legacy, It is only estimate the goodness of spiritual fruits sprouted from its luminous pontificate …

  4. These comments Cavalcoli father have the positive effect on me to make me bite your tongue and avoid saying things probably inappropriate (and on the other hand unnecessary), to confinement to the private sphere. But I can not find myself in agreement with Petrus…
