Five Myths of Why Bergogilio is Definitely the Pope

The Catholic Monitor is honored to post the following short piece by Helen M. Weir, MI. She is a excellent writer as well as a Knight of the Immaculata. This means she is a member of the Militia Immaculatae movement of Total Marian Consecration founded by Saint Maximilian Kolbe, the Hero of Auschwitz.

Five myths of why Bergogilio is definitely the pope:

1.  Myth:  He is the pope because we've had corrupt popes before.  (Answer: Just because a man is corrupt doesn't make him the pope.)

2.  Myth:  He is the pope we deserve because of our infidelity.  (Answer: What we deserve doesn't make him the pope.)

3.  Myth:  He is the pope by God's will.  (Answer: God is not chaotic. He abides by His own rules.  If it was God's will for Bergoglio to be the pope, Bergoglio would have been validly elected.)

4.  Myth:  We have to accept him as pope until a future pope says otherwise.  (Answer: Cardinal Burke has stated there are real doubts as to the validity of Bergoglio's election.  It is a staple of Catholic moral theology that one may not act on doubt.  In other words, we have no authority to accept Bergoglio as pope until competent Church authority resolves the issue.)

5.  Myth:  Only private judgment, based on pride, could be the basis for doubting that Bergoglio is the pope.  (Answer: Only private judgment based on pride could insist, in light of all we know, that he possibly could be.)

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.

Might it be Good for all of us & for Francis to Read about the "Gruesome Death of Arius"?

  I have read the letters of your piety , in which you have requested me to make known to you the events of my times relating to myself, and to give an account of that most impious heresy of the Arians , in consequence of which I have endured these sufferings, and also of the manner of the death of Arius . With two out of your three demands I have readily undertaken to comply, and have sent to your Godliness what I wrote to the Monks; from which you will be able to learn my own history as well as that of the heresy . But with respect to the other matter, I mean the death, I debated with myself for a long time, fearing lest any one should suppose that I was exulting in the death of that man. But yet, since a disputation which has taken place among you concerning the heresy , has issued in this question, whether Arius died after previously communicating with the Church ; I therefore was necessarily desirous of giving an account of his death, as thinking that the question woul
