"Fr Z also provided a link to a sermon preached by Papa Bergoglio in the Domus Sanctae Marthae. Coming as it does so soon after publication of the Sovereign Pontiff's words about shit-eating, this puerile and unbalanced attack upon those the pope appears to enjoy hating seems to me ... I feel compelled by Canon 212 paragraph 3 and the Holy Father's own often expressed desire for Parrhesia to say this ... to raise disturbing questions about Pope Francis' mind." - Cardinal John Henry Newman expert Fr. John Hunwicke [http://liturgicalnotes.blogspot.com/2016/12/is-fr-z-important.html?m=1]
Francis's comments on "shit-eating" are now infamous. Many were outraged, but I think the proper response is pity.
I am not saying that Francis is eating poop, but it does seem like a possibility and "raise[s] [the] disturbing question" that he may have a poop fixation somewhere in his "mind."
Most people don't realize that poop fixation and poop eating are signs of dementia as well as mental illness. To read more on these signs of metal unfitness and other signs of Francis having dementia click here: http://allnurses.com/geriatric-nurses-ltc/coprophagia-and-scatolia-768081.html.
If Francis is a "demented person" can he "occupy the charge" of "Pope"?
Renowned papal validity theologian Arnaldo Xavier de Silverado in his book wrote that a "demented person" or apparently a person with dementia couldn't "occupy the charge" of "Pope":
"The designation, as Pope, of a person who cannot occupy the charge, would constitute... a demented [dementia] person."
(Implications of New Missae and Heretic Popes," Page 86)
There is good reason to respect de Silveira's scholarship on papal validity has he himself explained:
"In the 1970 Brazilian edition of my study of the heretical Pope, in the French edition of 1975 and in the Italian in 2016, I stated that on the grounds of the intrinsic theological reasons underpinning the Fifth Opinion I considered it not merely probable but certain. I chose not to insist on the qualification 'theologically certain' for an extrinsic reason, namely, that certain authors of weight do not adopt it.43 This was also the opinion of the then Bishop of Campos, Bishop Antonio de Castro Mayer, as expressed in a letter of 25th January 1974, when he sent my work to Paul VI, asking him to point out any possible errors (which never took place), expressly stating that he referred to the study 'written by lawyer Arnaldo Vidigal Xavier da Silveira, with the contents of which I associate myself .'”
Here is what de Silveira says in his book "Implications Of New Missae And Heretic Popes" about the subject of papal validity:
"4. The Election of a Person who Cannot Be Pope
"The designation, as Pope, of a person who cannot occupy the charge, would constitute a special
case of dubious election. For it is a common opinion (3) that the election of a woman, of a child, of a
demented person and of someone who were not a member of the Church (a person not baptized, a
heretic, an apostate, a schismatic) would be invalid by divine law." [https://archive.org/stream/ SilveiraImplicationsOfNewMissa eAndHereticPopes/Silveira% 20Implications%20of%20New% 20Missae%20and%20Heretic% 20Popes_djvu.txt]
In 2019, Francis's inappropriate angry "childlike" hand slapping
episode when added to the earlier in the year ring-kissing behavior
controversy where he appeared to play the immature children's "gotcha"
game that received similar headline sequences was similarly explained as
"bizarre," "awkward" and "cringeworthy."
(CatholicCulture.org, "The bizarre ring-kissing controversy, March 28, 2019)
The many episodes of "bizarre behavior of Francis" apparently are a habit pattern, but other than when he is boiling with rage in denouncing faithful Catholics or American anti-socialism he appears to be somewhat normal despite his melodramatic theatrics.
Francis's theatrical spoiled child ways remind one of a C.S. Lewis' Great Divorce character, the theatrical Frank, who is like all "woke' leftists who have acted like tyrannical spoiled children since Karl Marx in wanting to use "pity" to "blackmail the universe: that till they consent to be happy (on their own [evil] terms [such as the Francis Vatican Gay Lobby and Marxist activists]) no one shall taste joy... that Hell['s evil] should be able to veto Heaven['s good]... [pity] draws men to concede what should not be conceded."
(The Great Divorce, Chapter 13)
But getting back to the main point, this spoiled child ways of "inappropriate" and "childlike" habit pattern behavior of Francis could be a sign of dementia according to dementia experts:
"[Y]our loved one's behavior may seem inappropriate, childlike or impulsive."
(Lewy Body Dementia Association, Ibda.org, "Understanding Behavioral Changes in Dementia," by Tanis German Ph.D, Mayo Clinic)
Gloria.tv reported Francis apparently inappropriately kissed some embarrassed politicians feet:
"Francis knelt down and kissed the feet of several [deeply embarrassed] South Sudan leaders."
(Gloria.tv, "Showtime: Francis Knees to Kiss Feet of South Sudan Politicians, April 11, 2019)
This inappropriate foot kissing behavior by Francis caused Bishop Rene Gracida on his website to comment in a headline:
"The Bizarre Behavior of Francis the Merciful is Beginning to cause Questions to be asked in Rome about his Behavior"
(Abyssus.org, April 11, 2019)
According to NeuroPsychiatry Online this could be a sign of dementia:
"Patients with bvFTD [frontotemporal dementia] can present with inappropriate personal comments or touching, violation of interpersonal space, and other personally intrusive behaviors such as kissing."
(NeuroPsychiatryonline.org, "Kissing or 'Osculation' in Frontotemporal Dementia," July 1, 2014)
Sadly, this isn't the Francis's first foot kissing behavior (Google: Images: "Pope Francis foot kissing" for other examples of this behavior). Francis's possible fixation on foot kissing may, also, be associated with his comment and possible fixation on coprophilia:
"[I]n Psychpathia Sexualis... categorize foot fetishism [such as foot kissing] and coprophilia under the same heading... Self-Humiliation."
(Book.google.com, "Dada and Surrealist Films," Page 165)
Finally, remember that the book "Dictator Pope" by historian Henry Sire claimed that a Jesuit assessment by the then Superior General of the Jesuits Father Peter Hans Kolvenbach thought Francis was "[u]nsuitable to be a [b]ishop" and lacked "psychological balance" according to a review by Gloria.tv:
"[T]he assessment Father Bergoglio received... accused Bergoglio of a series of defects... vulgar language to deviousness, disobedience concealed under the mask of humility, and lack of psychological balance... the habit of saying diametrically opposing things from one day to the next."
(Gloria.tv, "Unsuitable to be a Bishop," December 3, 2017)
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."

- LifeSiteNews, "Confusion explodes as Pope Francis throws magisterial
weight behind communion for adulterers," December 4, 2017:
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.
