"Francis Effect: Intelligent men Denying Reality": "Why [are] they [De Mattei, Matt, etc...]... so Afraid to look directly at the facts on Benedict XVI & his Abdication... & the writings of the Saints on Deposing a Heretical 'Pope'”?
This is a very interesting note sent in the “mailbag” to Barnhardt from a lawyer.
He warns about the next possible tactic of turning the burden of proof onto the lay people and I think he’s wondering if it will ever be enough for them to do anything about what’s going on in the Vatican.
I’m definitely not saying that anyone is saying/doing or not saying/doing anything for money. I don’t like to talk or write that way, especially since I do not know that to be true.
However, I’m just trying to figure out why they [De Mattei, Matt, etc...] seem to be so afraid to look directly at the facts on Benedict XVI and his abdication, whether it’s valid or not and on Bergoglio’s nonsense and the writings of the saints on deposing a heretical “Pope”, etc., in their assessment of the Pontificate of Benedict XVI and the nonsense perpetuated by Bergoglio. It seems as if they use psychology, projecting, condescension, belittling comments, fear tactics, threats, and, (some have used), even personal attacks, rather than actually, seriously looking at the complete facts of the case. It’s as if they are avoiding the total truths of the case or sidestepping them out of some sort of fear...? Fear of what? Some talk about money, but I don’t think that’s it... at least not for many of them... Is it the diabolical confusion that we were warned about a while ago?
Sadly, I have some friends who were so poorly catechized that they simply refuse to look at the facts about Bergoglio, as if they’re afraid that they’d be excommunicated or violently struck by lightning for even thinking any bad thoughts about what’s going on in the Vatican. So they cope, psychologically, by ignoring the problem, sticking their heads in the sand, getting angry at anyone exposing the evil and wrongdoings, and looking for other like-minded people so they can prove that they are right in ignoring the problem and not facing facts.
There was a very good commentary on a YouTube video of Fr. Anthony Hannon in regard to the question, “Did Bishop Athanasius Schneider Refute Ann Barnhardt?”.
The former One Five publisher Steve Skojec once promoted Bishop Athanasius
Schneider's claim that popes cannot be deposed for heresy which
once "puzzled" renowned historian and scholar Roberto de Mattei.
"Among the most beautiful and mysterious truths of our faith is the
dogma of the Beatific Vision of the souls in Heaven.The Beatific Vision
consists in the immediate and intuitive contemplation of God reserved
for souls who have passed to the after-life in a state of Grace and have
been completely purified of every imperfection.
This truth of faith, enunciated in Holy Scripture and confirmed over
the centuries by Tradition, is an unreformable dogma of the Catholic
Church. The new Catechism restates it in n.1023:”Those who die in God’s
grace and friendship and are perfectly purified live forever with
Christ. They are like God forever for “they see Him as He is” (1 John
3,2), “face to face” (1Corinthians 13,12)"
"At the beginning of the XIV century, a Pope, John XXII, contested this thesis in his ordinary magisterium and fell into heterodoxy. The most fervent Catholics of that time corrected him publically. John XXII – Cardinal Schuster wrote –“has the gravest responsibilities before the tribunal of history (…) since “he offered the entire Church, the humiliating spectacle of the princes, clergy and universities steering the Pontiff onto the right path of Catholic theological tradition, and placing him in the very difficult situation of having to contradict himself.” (Alfredo Idelfonso Schuster o.s.b. Jesus Christ in Ecclesiastical History, Benedictine Publishing House, Rome 1996, pp. 116-117)...."
"... When the Pope tried to impose this erroneous doctrine on the Faculty of Theology in Paris, the King of France, Philip VI of Valois, prohibited its teaching, and, according to accounts by the Sorbonne’s Chancellor, Jean Gerson [even] reached the point of threatening John XXII with the stake if he didn’t make a retraction. John XXII’s sermons totus mundum christianum turbaverunt, so said Thomas of Strasburg, Master of the Hermits of Saint Augustine (in Dykmans, op. cit., p. 10)."
If Chancellor Gerson were alive today would he with a correction have threatened Francis for his Communion for adulterers heresy with burning at the stake?
Why is de Mattei afraid to correct Francis?
Pray an Our Father now for reparation for the sins committed because of Francis's Amoris Laetitia.
Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church as well as the Triumph of the Kingdom of the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Stop for a moment of silence, ask Jesus Christ what He wants you to do now and next. In this silence remember God, Father, Son and Holy Ghost - Three Divine Persons yet One God, has an ordered universe where you can know truth and falsehood as well as never forget that He wants you to have eternal happiness with Him as his son or daughter by grace. Make this a practice. By doing this you are doing more good than reading anything here or anywhere else on the Internet.
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.
