Sacrilege Communion: Francis vs. Benedict XVI

Vatican expert Maike Hickson at Onepeterfive reported:

"A possible reason as to why Pope Francis wishes this CDF [Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith] letter [accordingly to Kath.net approved by Francis rejecting the majority of the German bishops move to give Communion to Protestants] to remain unpublished is that he is not happy with it."

"... it was Pope Francis himself who... in 2015... opened up to the idea that a Protestant spouse could... [receive] Holy Communion... One well-informed clerical source therefore told Onepeterfive that this move was coming "from the very top in Rome [Francis]."
(Onepeterfive.com," A Crucial Moment For the Church: Intercommunion Debate in Rome in May," April 30, 2018)

Vatican expert Edward Pentin revealed:

""The Register understands from reliable and authoritative sources that Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI has given his full support to the seven [German] bishops and their letter to the Vatican [CDF which rejected the move to give sacrilege Communion to Protestants].
(National Catholic Register, "Complete Letter of Seven German Bishops on Holy Communion for Protestant Spouses Published," April 25, 2018)

If both reports are true then this is the first time that Benedict has directly went against Francis's moves to give Communion sacrilegiously.

Benedict never countered Francis's moves to give Communion sacrilegiously to adulterous couples, but is apparently directly moving against the current pope, if Onepeterfive's source is correct that the majority of German bishops move comes "from the very top in Rome," on sacrilegiously shared Communion with Protestants

Former consulter to the Congregation for the Doctrine the Faith Msgr. Nicola Bux told Pentin:

"[S]hared Eucharistic Communion... would 'go against Revelation and the Magisterium', leading Christians to 'commit blasphemy and sacrilege.'"
(National Catholic Register, "Theologian: Shared Communion With Protestants Would be Blasphemy and Sacrilege," January 2, 2017)


Pray an Our Father now for Benedict XVI to strongly move against all of Francis's moves to promote sacrilege Communion and to work for a true restoration of the Church as did St. Pope Pius V.

Benedict just gave Barnhardtism a gigantic booster shot.

Pope Paul gave Communion to the Protestant spouse at a wedding he officiated. John Paul II have Communion to a non-Catholic, as did Cardinal Ratzinger. If it can be done by a pope in an unusual situation, why not by priests generally?

Because it would "'go against Revelation and the Magisterium', leading Christians to 'commit blasphemy and sacrilege.'"

Just because a Pope does a sinful thing doesn't mean that it SHOULD be done.

I agree completely; Communion should not be given to non-Catholics. Too bad when "Popes go against Revelation and the Magisterium." It makes a guy wonder about them.

Taylor Marshall finally admitted that "Francis teaches HERESY," now, the question is will he do a Skojec & a Schneider Cop Out

    Doctor of the Church St. Francis de Sales totally confirmed beyond any doubt the possibility of a heretical pope and what must be done by the Church in such a situation: "[T]he Pope... WHEN he is EXPLICITLY a heretic , he falls ipso facto from his dignity and out of the Church, and the Church MUST either deprive him , or, as some say, declare him deprived, of his Apostolic See." (The Catholic Controversy, by St. Francis de Sales, Pages 305-306) Taylor Marshall finally admitted that "Pope Francis teaches HERESY: Pope Pius XII condemned the heresy of Francis": Pope Francis on Feb 2 2022, taught, "that in Christ no one can ever truly separate us from those we love because the bond is an existential bond, a strong bond that is in our very nature...who have denied the faith, who are apostates." Pope Pius XII taught the exact opposite when he wrote of those: "who have not been so unfortunate as to separate themselves from the unity of the Body, or b

Wernz-Vidal: "One cannot consider as Schismatics those who Refuse to Obey the Roman Pontiff because they would hold his person Suspect or, because of Widespread Rumors, Doubtfully Elected"

    Pope Francis is tottering on the precipice of Hell. None of this means he isn't the pope, and such talk among the laity is scandalous in its own right. Not a single cardinal in that 2013 conclave has come out and said the election was rigged and Bergoglio isn't the pope, that he is in fact an anti-pope . If he is, a future pope can declare that, when Jorge Bergoglio will no longer be a pope. But if the very men gathered in conclave haven't made that public accusation,  anyone who is suggesting that better take into account that they too will have to give an account of themselves to Almighty God when they die . Such talk adds to the scandal of the "little ones," the simple, even potential converts, who, when they hear big-mouth Catholics on social media saying he's not really the pope, draw back from approaching the Church. Do any of us desire to stand in front Our Blessed Lord as the Supreme Judge and explain why, in our desire for more c

The Nuremberg Trial-like Excuse which Cardinal Burke has so Staggeringly, so Stereotypically Proffered on the Promised “Formal Correction”

Does Cardinal Burke think Francis is an antipope? On at least five occasions, Cardinal Burke has rejected the magisterial nature of official papal teaching (in one case, pre-emptively dismissing a hypothetical official teaching of the Magisterium): Cardinal Burke has rejected the official teaching of Pope Francis in the new Apostolic Constitution Episcopalis Communio concerning the possibility that a pope can raise the final synodal document to the level of ordinary magisterium, if the pope chooses. (We covered the Episcopalis Communio here .) The whole apostolic constitution on the Synod is problematic. … This idea that either the Pope on his own or the Synod together with the Pope can create some new Magisterium [i.e. a new teaching of the ordinary Magisterium], is simply false. The Synod is a consultative body, to help the Pope to see how best to present the Church’s teaching in time. It’s not able to create ordinary Magisterium. As a canon lawyer, Cardinal Burk
