Francis Crisis Solutions & Might Gloria.tv and Church Militant be moving towards agreement with Historian Cionci that "the Pope is only Benedict XVI"?
Western Schism - Wikipedia
On December 8, Gloria.tv quoted historian Andrea Cionci saying "the pope is only Benedict XVI":
Andrea Cionci refers on LiberoQuotidiano.it (December 7) to Cardinal Andrea Cordero Lanza di Montezemolo (+2017), a heraldist, who designed Benedict XVI’s coat of arms in 2005...
... since 2018, Archbishop Gänswein started using Benedict’s coat of arms
again although as Prefect of the Pontifical House he is supposed to
Cionci concludes that heraldry is a clear and precise official language which for him confirms that "the pope is only Benedict XVI." [https://www.gloria.tv/post/gCDZ81z8fo3q63vqwUiPHDi31]
On June 10, Church Militant quoted "Italian critic and historian Andrea Cionci" saying "in focusing on and debating the real magna quaestio, that is, the invalidity of Ratzinger's renunciation. Bergoglio's election is entirely secondary. If Benedict did not abdicate, everything else never existed":
The 40-minute Italian film, The Message in the Bottle,
is reigniting the heated debate surrounding the canonical validity of
Benedict XVI's resignation from the papacy on Feb. 11, 2013 and Francis'
subsequent election to the See of St. Peter...
... Italian critic and historian Andrea Cionci alerted Church Militant to the possibility that skeptics would dismiss the film as "conspiracy theory.""But if a viewer wants to check out the truth of the documentary's claims, all it takes is a click, since most of the material cited is available on Vatican sites and credible newspapers," Cionci said.
"The highlight of the documentary is Benedict XVI's Declaratio, which, out of curious 'carelessness,' involves canons 124, 332 § 2, 188, 17 of the Code of Canon Law which, according to many experts, render the resignation completely null and void," he observed.
Cionci noted the real difficulty was "in focusing on and debating the real magna quaestio, that is, the invalidity of Ratzinger's renunciation. Bergoglio's election is entirely secondary. If Benedict did not abdicate, everything else never existed."
Thousands of Italians have watched the production on social media and Cionci's review in the Milanese secular newspaper Libero Quotidiano is commending the documentary as "well done and based on obvious facts."
Church Militant contacted Matteo Bruni, director of the Holy See Press Office for a response, but did not receive a reply. [https://www.churchmilitant.com/news/article/explosive-film-reignites-two-popes-debate]
On December 31, the historian Cionci in his "POPE AND ANTIPOPE: THE INVESTIGATION" series came up with SOLUTIONS to the FRANCIS CRISIS which he called "SOLUTIONS FOR THE POST BERGOGLIO. FROM THE RE-ELECTION OF RATZINGER TO THE 'HONEST ANTI-POPE'" that is similar to what was done by the Church to resolve the historical "Western Schism" also called the "Papal Schism":
At this point, after a consultation with some experts in canon law, experts of the Magna Quaestio, we allow ourselves to outline some possibilities, from the most obvious to the least practicable, and "of school".
1. Contact and Consult Pope Benedict
If, despite the usurper's departure from the scene, Benedict XVI does not speak of his own free will because he is still impeded, the most obvious solution is that for which the cardinals all turn to Pope Ratzinger, formally asking him to confirm that, for eight years, he was prevented from attending and therefore the real pope is still him. It would be advisable for such a pronouncement to take place in public, with every guarantee of safety.
Once Bergoglio left the scene and the risk of sanctions or excommunications (however nil) by the antipope Francis ceased, this operation would become entirely possible and natural. And it would be in the interest of the future occupant of the throne of Peter and of all the cardinals who wish to wear a purple legitimately, without shadows.
2. A lightning provincial synod
Now, let's say that, for whatever reason, Pope Benedict does not want or cannot pronounce himself. (As we have seen from the chapters dedicated to the Ratzinger Code, the hypothesis that he is convinced that he has validly abdicated is completely excluded). In this case, the Church could organize a provincial synod within 20 days of Bergoglio's departure from the scene, in this circumstances of the province of Rome, to rule on the impeded see of Pope Benedict, bishop of Rome, in fact. This synod would be attended by bishops, rectors of pontifical institutes and other significant members of the clergy of the province. However, the times would be very short and the hypothesis difficult to implement.
3. Re-elect Benedict .
An intelligent, practical and diplomatic move, to save goat and cabbage, could be that of a conclave, albeit an invalid one, that is, including the 70 non-cardinals nominated antipapal, but which turns out to be a plebiscite to "re-elect" Benedict XVI . Of course, Pope Ratzinger has no need to be re-elected since he has always remained the only pope, but this pseudo-conclave would be more like a demonstration of fidelity to the true pontiff and, in the substance of things, would restore order, bringing the true Vicar of Christ back to the practical exercise of power. Pope Benedict, then, would easily reconfirm the cardinals who proved loyal to him. Subsequently, he could continue to reign until the end, as John Paul II did, or abdicate for real, or appoint a vicar - a bishop, or a cardinal - to help him in the exercise of the ministerium.
4. Ask Benedict to resign
Even without proceeding with his pseudo-re-election, before the conclave Pope Benedict could be asked to abdicate for real, renouncing the Petrine munus, returning cardinal, abandoning all papal prerogatives, as rightly objected by card. Pell HERE , not before, but to have asked him to explicitly name which cardinal electors are responsible for electing the next Supreme Pontiff. Moreover, he himself specified it in the Declaratio : "the Conclave for the election of the new Supreme Pontiff must be convened by those to whom it belongs".
5. The "honest antipope"
more laborious, but fascinating solution: a pseudo-conclave with 70
invalid cardinals could elect another antipope, however honest and not
attached to power, rather interested in the true good of the Church.
Such an antipope, let's say, named Leo XIV, should go to Benedict to ask
him for the truth. If pope Ratzinger, for any reason whatsoever does
not want to pronounce himself, Leo XIV could convene a provincial synod
or a council to resolve the Magna Quaestio. If the synod /
council were to decree in favor of the impeded see, Leo XIV "resigns"
and cedes the throne to Pope Benedict who can choose whether to continue
to reign or renounce validly. If the synod / council (not infallible,
but obligatory) were to decree - wrongly - that Bergoglio was a
legitimate pope, Leo XIV, in deference to the truth of things, and in
the fullest of his power, it would have to unhinge the cardinal electors appointed by Bergoglian, abdicate himself and reform a valid conclave
with real cardinals of Ratzingerian or Wojtylian nomination. The
provision would be absolutely justified by a need for clarity and
transparency, to restore the unity of the Church. [https://sfero.me/article/pope-and-antipope-the-investigation]
