Latinist Fr. D. Belland: "In the History of Canon Law, until Vatican Council II, the only words used to refer to the Petrine Office were 'Papatus' and 'Munus'” not Ministry
[T]here is a mentality of narrow views that isolates Vatican II .... There are many accounts of it, which give the impression that from Vatican II onward, everything has been changed, and what preceded it has no value or, at best, has value only in the light of Vatican II. ... The truth is that this particular Council defined no dogma at all, and deliberately chose to remain on a modest level, as a merely pastoral council; and yet many treat it as though it had made itself into a sort of superdogma which takes away the importance of all the rest.

If Latinist Fr. D. Belland is correct in saying that in "the history of Canon Law, until Vatican Council II, the only words used to refer to the Petrine Office were 'Papatus' and 'Munus' not ministry then Steven O'Reilly's claim that the “weaponized ambiguity” Vatican II's "Lumen Gentium [new teaching that] teaches a munus is a ministry" is a "good doctrinal interpretation" is problematic. [https://www.thecatholicmonitor.com/2022/11/oreilly-then-uses-vatican-iis-lumen.html and https://www.thecatholicmonitor.com/2020/06/steven-oreilly-debates-catholic-monitor.html]
The problem is he is not quoting Vatican I or any infallible teachings to back up his claim that "munus is... ministry," but only Lumen Gentium.
As I stated in my last post on this subect:
Even Francis is definitely pope pundits such a Erick Ybarra and Michael Lofton admit that this could be problematic:

The ruling on the football field (i.e., pre-conciliar tradition) stands unless sufficient evidence to overrule the call (i.e., explicit Conciliar text) has been clearly presented. Cases of opacity and uncertainty—such as unclear VC2 “updates”—must be “lined out” like an arguable challenge to a play-call that fails to meet sufficient evidence to overturn the standing call (i.e. tradition).

Pray an Our Father now in reparation for the sins 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.
