Bp. Schneider Directly Confronts Francis, Bishop of Rome, on "Banning... Holy Mass"

It appears that Bishop Athanasius Schneider is directly confronting Francis, the bishop of the "diocese of Rome."

The Catholic newspaper, The Remnant, asked Bishop Schneider the following pointed question about the "diocese of Rome" and he responded with a direct answer:

"The diocese of Rome swiftly suspended all public Masses to comply with the government directives. Bishops around the world [following Francis's example and lead] have taken similar actions. The Polish Bishops [unlike the diocese of Rome], on the other hand, have called for more Masses to be celebrated so that the congregation is smaller. What is your view on the decision [of Francis and other bishops] to suspend public Masses to prevent the spread of the coronavirus?"

"[Schneider said] As long supermarkets are open and accessible and as long as people have access to public transportation, one cannot see a plausible reason for banning people from assisting at Holy Mass in a church. One could guarantee in churches the same and even better hygiene protective measures.
(The Remnant, "A Remnant Interview: Bishop Athanasius Schneider on Church's handling if Coronavirus," March 27, 2020)

It appears that Bishop Schneider has never confronted Francis (and the bishops who have followed his lead) so directly as on this "banning... Holy Mass" in the "diocese of Rome" to supposedly stop the spread of the virus statement.

Schneider is right. Taiwan, only 80 miles away from Communist China, is the country most successful in stopping the spread of coronavirus in their country and it has proven this can be done with still allowing public Masses. In "banning... of Holy Mass" Francis doesn't represent "plausible reason[s]" as the bishop said is proven in Taiwan.
(en.prothmalo.com, "Say a little prayer, remotedly: Taiwan's faithful limited gatherings," March 22, 2020)

By saying Francis doesn't have "plausible reason" to ban public Masses in the "diocese of Rome," he is directly saying Francis doesn't have credible or believable "reason[s]" for his actions against the Mass.

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Mass and the Church as well as for the Triumph of the Kingdom of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Also, pray an Our Father now for God to give President Trump the grace to do His will in this present crisis.

All that is required of a Bishop, Priest, Layman is to Love the Lord thy God with all thy hear, soul mind, strength; have no other gods before you; keep the Sabbath holy.

In a purified Church, healthy and led from the top by a Catholic, then there would never be a *confrontation* (as you say), because we would all be living according to God’s Law in unity in Christ, Word.

In a sinful, perverted and idol worshipping Church, however, to be faithful to God is to be “confrontational with the Pope“; Bishop; Priest; Superior.

God first, middle, last - everything. I see God through my legitimate authorities: Pope, Bishops and priests. But if they move off the path; leave The Way - I no longer see them, because I will never lose sight of God.

In addition, to all the Laymen who are acutely missing Holy Mass, and to the Priests and Bishops who are suffering with us - I would like to point out that it’s possible, very possible to continue to publicly offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and *still* comply with any secular safety concerns.

My Parish is in a State in which the governor has imposed restrictions on 25 or more gathered in one place. Our SSPX Priest (God bless them all!) now holds ver twice as many Masses - limited to 24 by signup reservation only. He requests that young children not attend and those with any symptoms whatsoever. He requests, once there, we all keep proper spacing and approach the communion rail three at a time. No Altar Servers, so he makes multiple trips back and forth to the Tabernacle and uses his own Paten to preserve the precious Body. We are asked to leave immediately after Mass and not mix with the arriving Parishioners of the next Mass. Homily shortened significantly to remain within the allotted hour. Confession available 30 minutes prior (as always) for every Mass. Respect the neighbors. Wash your hands. Etc.

He is serving every Parishioner of the Parish AND he is showing all due respect to health concerns and legitimate secular authority.

THAT is how it is to be done. God is well pleased with this Priest and this Order in this time. It can be done!

May the movement grow that offers Mass to the People of God. It is an illegal order to demand it be withheld, without first making any attempt to offers it within the boundaries of safety and legitimate laws. There is no excuse for Bishops to withhold Mass completely and totally, rendering our communities, nation, world DARK!

So did Bp Schneider say where and when he is offering his celebration of the Sacrifice of the Mass for the public? Or Cdl Burke? Did he mention in his call to pray the Rosary with him this coming April !st where and when he is offering a Mass for the public?

If I missed their announcements, please let me know.
There is hope for Schneider. He has never been heroic enough to publicly denounce Bergoglio's usurpation of the Roman See, but there is hope!

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
