O Que Fazer com o Papa Francisco? 2 Anos da Dúbia.


O Papa Francisco não responde nem a cardeais. Hoje completa-se dois anos que 4 cardeais (sendo que dois já morreram de lá pra cá) pediram explicações ao Papa, por meio de um documento tradicional chamado Dubia, e ele não respondeu. O documento é público e conhecido mundialmente. Mas os cardeais continuam sem resposta.

Agora, mais recentemente temos a acusação do arcebispo Carlo Viganò que acusa o Papa de saber dos abusos sexuais do cardeal McCarrick desde 2013 e não ter feito nada. Perguntado sobre isso, o Papa disse que não dizer nenhuma palavra.

Ele não parece também que renunciará, como pediu o Viganò.

Acusações contra o Papa,desde seus tempos na Argentina abundam na internet. Algumas acusações são tão cabeludas, que eu não tive coragem de relatar no blog. Muitos também não têm, mesmo porque são difíceis de se comprovar de longe.

Então, fica a pergunta: o que a Igreja (cardeais, arcebispos, bispos, padres e leigos) farão com o Papa.

Se ele não responde aos sérios questionamentos, nem renuncia, o que a Igreja pode fazer?

O renomado canonista Edward Peters, indicado pelo Papa Bento XVI, simplesmente disse que se acusações de Viganò são verídicas, o Papa deve renunciar e ele exige isso.

Os sites e blogs mais tradicionalistas estão há bastante tempo pedindo a renúncia do Papa, e outros começaram a pedir depois das acusações de Viganò. O meu blog declarou o Papa Francisco herético ao mudar o Catecismo relativo à pena de morte. Eu tenho dificuldades com o Papa Francisco desde a sua primeira entrevista, que foi no Brasil, quando ele disse que qualquer educação é importante não importa a religião.

Os blogs e sites que eram defensores do Papa, mas mantinham certa ortodoxia católica, estão ou em silêncio ou pedindo pelo amor de Deus que o Papa responda.

Os blogs que se dizem católicos mas defendem atos homossexuais, eu não considero católicos, não trato das opiniões deles.

Recentemente, Jonathan Last escreveu um excelente artigo no site The Weekly Standard. Depois de um relato minucioso da situação, ele apontou 4 saídas dessa enorme crise da Igreja:

1) Renúncia do Papa. Já falamos que essa hipótese é remota. Last disse que o fato de termos dois papas que renunciaram seria uma desgraça e correria o risco da Igreja se tornar um partido político;

2) Capitulação. Os católicos simplesmente desprezariam o que ocorre com a Igreja e o Papa Francisco vai levando a Igreja sem credibilidade e sem força doutrinária. Também uma desgraça;

3) Cisma. Last diz que tem havido aqui e acolá algum papo sobre cisma, mas Last acha que tem baixa probabilidade de ocorrer e os católicos devem rezar para que não ocorra;

4)  Resistência. Last diz que forças conspiraram para que Bergoglio chegasse ao poder, forças também interna da Igreja (clérigos e leigos) devem se unir para tirá-lo de lá. Last sugere começar por não fazer mais doações para a Igreja se ela não resolver a crise. E disse que bispos deveriam organizar um novo conclave. Bom, cadê os dois cardeais da Dubia?

Hoje leio também o texto de Christopher Ferrara. Ele começa falando de como os católicos menos ortodoxos que defendiam o Papa estão desesperados para que o Papa reaja respondendo às acusações.

No fim, Ferrara descarta que o Papa vá renunciar e também diz que a solução é a deposição do Papa Francisco.

Ferrara aponta que isso já foi feito no passado, bispos se reuniram e depuseram Bento IX e Gregório VI, além de mandarem Silvester III para o monastério, elegendo um novo papa, Clemente II, no Sínodo de Sutri. Naquele momento, Bento IX, que havia comprado o pontificado, lutou ainda no futuro e foi novamente deposto.

Vou colocar aqui a parte do texto dele que fala da opção da deposição.

Can the Church Defend Herself Against Bergoglio?

Written by  
...Yes, deposition.  Canon212 has linked to an interesting and timely piece on the role of the Synod of Sutri, near Rome, in 1046, which dealt with the problem of three rival claimants to the papacy, each installed by a Roman faction: First, the execrable Benedict IX, mentioned above. Second, the interloper Sylvester III, installed in the Chair of Peter after Benedict had been driven from Rome.  Third, the well-intentioned but dimwitted Gregory VI, whose election was tainted by a seemingly simoniacal negotiation with Benedict, who had returned to Rome in 1045 and ousted Sylvester, according to which Benedict would receive a generous pension if he resigned the papacy, which Benedict did only to rescind his resignation.

The Synod was convoked by Henry III, the German king and soon-to-be-crowned Holy Roman Emperor, a pious and austere Christian and an exponent of the Cluniac spirit of reform. The Synod declared that Benedict IX (who had refused to appear) was deposed notwithstanding his attempt to undo his resignation. As for Sylvester, the Synod declared that he be “stripped of his sacerdotal rank and shut up in a monastery.” Gregory was also declared deposed, either by the act of the Synod itself or by Gregory’s own voluntary resignation in view of the Synod.
At Henry III’s designation, the German Bishop of Bamberg became Clement II, but he died after only a year, whereupon Benedict reasserted his claim to the papacy for the third time in 1047, only to be driven from Rome again by Imperial troops in 1048.  Damasus II, another German bishop designated by Henry, reigned for a mere three weeks before dying, whereupon Pope St. Leo IX succeeded to the papacy, reigning until 1054.  Leo, as John Rao observes, was the first in a line of Popes who “took charge of the movement of innovative Christian restoration” which included a breaking of the dominance of Roman nobility over papal elections. (Rao, Black Legends, 147-148).
As the cited article on the Synod of Sutri notes, although the scurrilous Benedict IX objected to his deposition by the Synod, “the Church has always accepted his deposition as valid. The King of Germany then appointed Clement II as Pope, who promptly crowned the King, Holy Roman Emperor. Benedict IX, after the death of Clement, claimed the papacy again! The Church to this day recognizes Clement II as a true Pope.” 
Moreover, Benedict IX himself is recognized as a true Pope—a valid but deposed Pope—during three separate periods listed as three distinct pontificates in the canon of Popes. This was possible owing to the lack of any set canonical form for papal elections; a Pope could gain or regain the office by various machinations.  Indeed, even the Vatican’s own website states that Benedict was Pope from 1047-1048, the very year of his third ascension to the office from which he was finally driven by force.
Only with the ascension of Pope Nicholas II in 1059 was it established that henceforth the cardinal-bishops would elect the Pope, with the other cardinals having the right to confirm or veto the nominee.  By 1100 what we now know as the College of Cardinals, embracing all the cardinals of different titles, had the exclusive right to elect a Pope, and the members of the College “have held it ever since.” (Eric John, The Popes, 181).
These lessons of history should suffice to dispel the pious fable, never a teaching of the Magisterium, that every Pope is chosen by the Holy Ghost to lead the Church. This theological error, which Bergoglio has exploited to the hilt, is a key element in the related error of papalotry, which elevates the person of the Pope above the office he occupies and makes of him the leader of a personality cult everyone is commanded to “love” (in the superficially emotional sense) and obey no matter what he says or does, rather than a custodian and defender of the Deposit of Faith whose lovability, personality and opinions are utterly irrelevant to the exercise and scope of his office. 
As Pope Benedict has observed, when it comes to the election of a Pope “the Spirit’s role should be understood in a much more elastic sense, not that he [sic] dictates the candidate for whom one must vote….There are too many contrary instances of popes the Holy Spirit obviously would not have picked!”  Bergoglio is undeniably one of them.
So what can be done to defend the Church against Bergoglio?  That the mode of papal election by cardinals has persisted for nearly a thousand years has led to the general impression that it pertains to the irreformable divine constitution of the Church, but it certainly does not.  As to matters of purely ecclesiastical law such as this one the Church has always allowed for departures from traditional practice in cases of emergency or grave necessity. And just as a synod was employed to address three rival claimants to the papal throne in 1046, declaring at least two of them deposed, so today might it be possible for reform-minded cardinals and bishops, comprising an imperfect council, to undo the incalculable damage caused by the cabal that lobbied for Bergoglio’s election before the last conclave—a cabal that included none other than McCarrick, whom Bergoglio rewarded by rehabilitating that monster despite the massive evidence of his unspeakable crimes.
What would be the grounds for a declaration of deposition at such a gathering of prelates?  One could readily point to the evidence that a faction that included Bergoglio himself had agreed upon his election before the conclave, and that all those involved, including Bergoglio, were thereby excommunicated latae sententiae in accordance with Article 81 of John Paul II’s Universi Dominici Gregis, which provides:
The Cardinal electors shall further abstain from any form of pact, agreement, promise or other commitment of any kind which could oblige them to give or deny their vote to a person or persons. If this were in fact done, even under oath, I decree that such a commitment shall be null and void and that no one shall be bound to observe it; and I hereby impose the penalty of excommunication latae sententiae upon those who violate this prohibition.
To quote Cajetan on this point (citations taken from the linked article by Robert Siscoe), deposition by an imperfect council is appropriate “when one or more Popes suffer uncertainty with regard to their election, as seems to have arisen in the schism of Urban VI and others. Then, lest the Church be perplexed, those members of the Church who are available have the power to judge which is the true pope, if it can be known, and if it cannot be known, [it has] the power to provide that the electors agree on one or another of them.”
I am not saying that such a case has been proven. Rather, what I am saying is that this hypothetical imperfect council could determine that it has been proven and act accordingly, and that the Church would judge any resulting deposition of Bergoglio in the same manner it judges the deposition of Benedict IX.
Another ground for deposition—as determined by the imperfect council, not any of us—would be that Bergoglio has deposed himself by promulgating heresy, fracturing the Church’s universal discipline respecting marriage and the Eucharist, and undermining the teaching of even his own immediate predecessors on matters of fundamental morality upheld by the Magisterium for two millennia. Surely the Church cannot be without any remedy for a Pope who relentlessly attacks her very foundations!  To quote Cajetan again: “Indeed the Church has the right to separate herself from an heretical pope according to divine law. Consequently, it has the right, by the same divine law, to use all means of themselves necessary for such separation; and those that juridically correspond to the crime, are of themselves necessary”—meaning the resort to an imperfect council.
If a synod was able to declare the deposition of a pope in 1046, why not an imperfect council today—or, for that matter, another synod? It will be argued that such a deposition would provoke massive schisms in the Church.  But that would not be the first time that defense of the Church’s common good has done so, as the Great Western Schism demonstrates. And are we not in the midst of schisms already, provoked by none other than Bergoglio himself, whose insane drive to shatter the Church’s bimillennial discipline has produced the totally unprecedented situation in which what is still considered mortally sinful in one diocese is an imperative of “mercy” in another?
In any case, this much is certain: barring Bergoglio’s conversion and reversal of course, the Church cannot abide this pontificate any longer. One way or another, the Church will have to repel an attacker at her very summit. Either the human element of the Church will act according to the means which seem possible, however extraordinary, or Heaven itself will intervene in a manner that might well involve a divine chastisement due to the negligence of time-serving pastors who left their sheep completely undefended against the wolves who preyed upon them, including the wolf the cardinals improvidently elected Pope.
Some four months before Archbishop Viganò’s testimony  Cardinal Willem Jacobus Eijk, the Archbishop of  Utrecht, Netherlands, perhaps the most liberal territory in the entire Church, protested that Bergoglio’s blatant nod to intercommunion with Protestants in Germany means that “the bishops and, above all, the Successor of Peter fail to maintain and transmit faithfully and in unity the deposit of faith contained in Sacred Tradition and Sacred Scripture” and that the situation reminds him of Article 675 of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, which refers to the Church’s “final trial” before the Second Coming, “that will shake the faith of many believers… [a] ‘mystery of iniquity’ in the form of a religious deception offering men an apparent solution to their problems at the price of apostasy from the truth.
What can the Church do when confronted by a Pope who, as a prominent cardinal declares to the whole world, “fail[s] to maintain and transmit faithfully … the deposit of faith contained in Sacred Tradition and Sacred Scripture” and is leading “an apostasy from the truth”? It seems absurd to argue that she can do nothing but exhort the faithful to pray and do penance while a papal malefactor, treated as if were an absolute dictator, is allowed to continue wreaking havoc upon faith and morals to the detriment of countless souls, without the least impediment, for so long as he shall live.
No, Bergoglio must go.  The successors of the Apostles, the only ones in a position to end his rampage, must demand his resignation and, should he refuse as expected, act in this unprecedented emergency to declare his removal from the office he has criminally abused and whose very credibility he threatens to destroy. May God give them the grace to do what must be done and what history will vindicate as a rescue of the Church during the height of the worst crisis in her history.

Acho que a única coisa a se fazer com o papa são duas: 1-rezar pela Igreja e por ele, para os inimigos da Igreja não o possua; e 2- fazer isso que este blog já faz com muita dedicação: ficar de olho nele, noticiar e documentar os acontecimentos e esses problemas. O fato desse blog nos servir como fonte de informação é de grande valia. Eu, por exemplo, salvo muitas dessas notícias em pdf e os guardo. Rezemos, pois tudo isso é de cansar e de os amargurar o coração, tamanho é o desprezo que esse papa deu a dois sacerdotes que pediram resposta, e morreram esperando. Nem os santos e nem os apóstolos da Igreja foram autoritários desse jeito

... Escreve o pseudo-Marcantonio Colonna:
“O texto do relatório nunca foi tornado público, mas o seguinte relato foi feito por um sacerdote que teve acesso a ele antes que ele desaparecesse do arquivo dos jesuítas. O padre Kolvenbach acusava Bergoglio de uma série de defeitos, que vão do uso habitual da linguagem vulgar à duplicidade, à desobediência escondida sob uma máscara de humildade e à falta de equilíbrio psicológico. Na ótica da sua idoneidade como futuro bispo, o relatório enfatizou que, como provincial, ele havia sido uma pessoa que havia trazido divisão à sua ordem.”
... Assim como é indubitável o forte atrito que existia entre o então simples jesuíta e os seus superiores da Companhia de Jesus, tanto na Argentina quanto em Roma.
... Nele, não se silencia que os jesuítas adversários dele chegaram até a fazer circular o rumor de que Bergoglio havia sido enviado para o exílio em Córdoba “porque estava doente, louco”.

Minha opinião é que essas "teorias da conspiração" que atacam o Papa são obra do diabo, que quer dividir a Santa Igreja. Você mesmo chama o Papa de herético, e isso não é coisa de católico fazer. Ser católico é ser obediente. Se você quer fazer "livres exames", que vire protestante, pois para nós católicos o Magistério é infalível. É de notar que os ataques ao Santo Papa provém majoritariamente do EUA, país amaldiçoado com o protestantismo e americanismo, nação que sempre odiou a Santa Igreja, sempre perseguiu católicos e sempre tentou destruir o Papado. Muito cuidado onde você se mete. Esse cardeal Vigàno, ao que tudo indica, é um pilantra de marca maior.
