Bp. Gracida gives Mirus a History Lesson: "St. Sophronius... Stood up to Pope Honorius and accused him of Heresy"

Yesterday, Catholic Culture's Dr. Jeff Mirus showed he needs a lesson in Catholic history when he said:

"A good Catholic may not charge the Pope with heresy."
(Catholic Culture, "Church troubles: What good Catholics may and may not do, November 19, 2019)

Bishop Rene Gracida who knows Catholic history in 2016 gave Mirus a history lesson:

"St. Sophronius of Jerusalem, almost alone, stood up to Pope Honorius and accused him of heresy."
(Renew America, Bishop displeased with Pope's leadership, October 16, 2016)

As journalist Edward Pentin inferred people apparently ignorant of Catholic history like Mirus would claim a saint, St. Sophronius, was not a "good Catholic":

"If St. Sophronius lived today, he certainly would be accused of speaking 'against the Pope.'"
(National Catholic Register," Cardinal Burke, Bishop Schneider: Criticism of Errors is Fidelity to the Pope, September 24, 2019)

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

Honestly I do not know of any Bishop in the Church who is a catholic, except Bishop Gracida. Morally speaking he is the only one with the courage to act like a Catholic, and theologically speaking, he might be the only one who is, God alone knows.

But I have another question, does Maike Hickson believe that Pope Benedict is the true pope and a prisoner of a Masonic plot? Her article in 2017 seems to support this if you read it carefully.

"Exorcist Fr. Ripperger is asking everyone to say this Prayer until the Election is Resolved"

A good friend of the Catholic Monitor got this from a group message. She said "exorcist Fr. Chad Ripperger is asking everyone to say this prayer until the election is resolved": Prayer of Command In His Name and by the power of His Cross and Blood, I ask Jesus to bind any evil spirits, forces and powers of the earth, air, fire, or water, of the netherworld and the satanic forces of nature.  By the power of the Holy Spirit and by His authority, I ask Jesus Christ to break any curses, hexes, or spells and send them back to where they came from, if it be His Holy Will.  I beseech Thee Lord Jesus to protect us by pouring Thy Precious Blood on us (my family, etc.), which Thou hast shed for us and I ask Thee to command that any departing spirits leave quietly, without disturbance, and go straight to Thy Cross to dispose of as Thou sees fit.  I ask Thee to bind any demonic interaction, interplay, or communications.  I place N. (Person, place or thing) under the protectio

If Kamala Harris' Father is part White & part Jamaican African and her Mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black?

  Is Joe Biden's running mate really Black? If Kamala Harris' father is part white and part Jamaican African and her mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black? tries to figure it out: Kamala Harris, Joe Biden's pick to be the Democratic Party's vice-presidential nominee, is the daughter of an Indian immigrant mother and a Jamaican immigrant father. Her father, as I understand it, has ancestors of both European and African origin. [Welcome new Volokh readers. FYI, I've been working on a book on the American Law of Race, with this forthcoming article the first relevant output. My own opinion is that Ms. Harris should be deemed American, period, but there is no such box on government forms, and if you decline to state your race, someone will decide for you… First things first. There is no multiracial or mixed-race category in American law in any jurisdiction. Nor is there an Indian category. So Harris cannot be legally Indian, nor can she b

Bishops of Colorado gave an apparent Vaxx "Exemption" Letter & Stated: "Vaccination is Not Morally Obligatory and so Must Be Voluntary"

Today, the bishops of Colorado gave an apparent Vaxx " exemption" letter (21_8_Vaccine_Exemption_CCC_Fin...docx(20KB)) and stated that "Vaccination is Not Morally Obligatory and so Must Be Voluntary":  COLORADO CATHOLIC CONFERENCE 1535 Logan Street | Denver, CO 80203-1913 303-894-8808 |   [Date]   To Whom It May Concern, [Name] is a baptized Catholic seeking a religious exemption from an immunization requirement. This letter explains how the Catholic Church’s teachings may lead individual Catholics, including [name], to decline certain vaccines. The Catholic Church teaches that a person may be required to refuse a medical intervention, including a vaccination, if his or her conscience comes to this judgment. While the Catholic Church does not prohibit the use of most vaccines, and generally encourages them to safeguard personal and public health, the following authoritative Church teachings demonstrate the principled religious
