5 Dubia Questions for Pope Benedict XVI in Front of Live Cameras: Not for the "Benedict Bot"

 

Gloria.tv reported that "Cardinal Robert Sarah paid a visit to the “Holy Father Benedict XVI, Pope Emeritus” on April 24, he wrote on Twitter.com":

"Sarah speaks diplomatically of 'an atmosphere of serene and dignified brotherhood, with the exchange of beautiful mutual memories.'" [https://www.gloria.tv/post/Ae4E3P8JgGoG69iSatg9McX27]

Some call these occasional reported visits with and "interviews" of Benedict with the sometimes photo ops: the "Benedict Bot."

This is because they seem staged pro-Francis propaganda like the Soviet show trials of the Cold War era.The pre-Francis Benedict seems to some to have disappeared and been replaced by someone who is never allowed to speak in front of live cameras or disagree with things which he, pre-Francis, was documented to have disagreed with.

Why doesn't the Francis Vatican let Benedict speak in front of live cameras?

This takes me back to 2019, when a similar question was implied by a Catholic Monitor commenter about Benedict having a live "press conference" in "public"

June 6, 2019 was the day that the Catholic Monitor posted 5 Dubia questions for One Peter Five publisher Steve Skojec to answer and like Francis he has refused, to this day, to answer.

Skojec was banned from posting in the Monitor comment section until he allowed a free forum for debate on those Dubia questions on the One Peter Five website comment section.

As far as we can see, there is still no freedom to debate at that website, but a priest and others banned there as well as a Italian Latin language expert and supporters of Skojec (one of the 1P5 publisher supporters is a blogger) carried on a debate for two days in the Catholic Monitor.
[http://catholicmonitor.blogspot.com/2019/06/5-dubia-questions-for-steve-skojec.html]

It was beautiful to see honest debate.

In the debate, Jonathan D'Souza posted a "Dubia for Benedict." Please go to the post link above to read it.

I loved the idea so here are the Catholic Monitor's 5 Dubia questions for Pope Benedict.

But, before we get to the dubia questions, I want to say that I totally agree with D'Souza that Benedict has to "come out to our faces in the public and answer in a press conference once and for all... and [be] drilled by lawyers and reporters in more detail, allow[ing] no room for escape."

Moreover, as he said "we don't want any more bogus press releases from the Vatican" which some are calling Francis's "Benedict Bot."

Francis and the Vatican as he said "can't be trusted" as proven by Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, Lettergate, the Chinese Vatican betrayal deal, the Bergoglio Argentine sex-abuse cover-ups dating to when he was a archbishop to the present Bishop Gustavo Zanchetta case and I could keep going, but you get the idea.

Finally, here are the 5 Dubia questions for Benedict:

1. Viganò and the evidence has proven that Francis covered-up for ex-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick's sex abuse. Do you demand with Viganò that Francis resign? Answer: yes or no.

2. In reference to the possibility of Francis resigning, Cardinal Walter Kasper and canon law expert Nicholas Cafardi said "a political faction" attempting "a forced resignation would be invalid."

It is known that three Cardinals made a "300 page dossier" of Vatican sexual homosexual deviancy that was paired with financial irregularities tied to Vatileaks orchestrated by the allied financially corrupt Vatican Old Guard diplomats and the Vatican sexually corrupt Gay Lobby that led to your resignation.

Do you admit that the aforementioned "political factions" orchestrated and caused or forced your resignation? Answer: yes or no.

3. Bishop René Gracida has convincingly demonstrated that there is valid evidence that Pope John Paul II's conclave constitution "Universi Dominici Gregis" which "prescribe[d]... [the] method for the election of his successor(s)" was violated and must be investigated by Cardinals.

Do you admit that the Cardinals need to investigate the conclave? Answer: yes or no.

4. Respected Catholic scholar Dr. Peter Kwasniewski in reviewing the Antonio Socci book "The Secret of Benedict XVI: Is he still Pope?" said: "Socci['s]... careful analysis... above all, the interpretation [of] canon lawyers... argue that the resignation lacks several conditions for validity."

Do you admit that you need to do a new resignation which is unarguably and incontrovertibly valid? Answer: yes or no.

5. Your long time friend and colleague Cardinal Walter Brandmuller said "Whoever thinks that persistent adultery and reception of Holy Communion are compatible is a heretic and promotes schism."

Since Francis endorses "that persistent adultery and reception of Holy Communion are compatible" with his Argentine letter and since his Vatican calls the letter "authentic magisterium," do you admit that Francis is "a heretic and promotes schism"? Answer: yes or no. 

Stop for a moment of silence, ask Jesus Christ what He want you to do next. Make this a practice. By doing this you are doing more good than reading anything here or anywhere else on the Internet

Francis Notes:

- 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)


Saint Robert Bellarmine, also, said "the Pope heretic is not deposed ipso facto, but must be declared deposed by the Church."

The AAS guidelines explicitly allows "sexually active adulterous couples facing 'complex circumstances' to 'access the sacraments of Reconciliation and the Eucharist.'"

-  On February 2018, in Rorate Caeli, Catholic theologian Dr. John Lamont:

"The AAS statement... establishes that Pope Francis in Amoris Laetitia has affirmed propositions that are heretical in the strict sense."

- On December 2, 2017, Bishop Rene Gracida:

"Francis' heterodoxy is now official. He has published his letter to the Argentina bishops in Acta Apostlica Series making those letters magisterial documents."

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church by the bishops by the grace of God.

What is needed right now to save America from those who would destroy our God given rights is to pray at home or in church and if called to even go to outdoor prayer rallies in every town and city across the United States for God to pour out His grace on our country to save us from those who would use a Reichstag Fire-like incident to destroy our civil liberties.

If Benedict is with Francis, I'm not with Benedict.

I don't know, Fred. From where I sit having moral certainty that Benedict never renounced the munus, it seems to me that this is how your 5 Dubia could be truthfully answered by Pope Benedict XVI:

1. No, Francis should not resign. (How can he resign that which he has never held?)
2. No, as I've said over and over and over, my decision to do what I did was freely made.
3. No, no investigation of that meeting in March 2013 needs to be done. (After all that has been revealed since then, you think those guys were the ones "whose competence it was" to call a conclave?!)
4. No. I resigned what I intended to resign. There is one pope. (HA!)
5. Yes, absolutely, yes. And now all the world knows, too. (And a heretic can never be pope or Jesus lied which would make Him a jerk for giving "binding and losing powers" to a heretic.)

What question to ask was implied by Fr Nicolas Gruner in 2014: "Whose name do you say in the te igitur? There is only one 'N' not two." Side stepping answers could go on and on and on. Perhaps THE Dubia would be along the lines of: "Knowing as you do the requirements of Canon 332.2, did you renounce the papal office in accord with it on Feb 11, 2013?"

Islam_Is_Islam, Thanks. It so good to have you back. I was worried about you because I hadn't heard from you in a long time.

"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.

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? Reason.com 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"
