Bellarmine: A Doubtful Pope is No Pope: Did Francis & "Vice-Pope" Maradiaga admit "Election [was] Organized by a Campaign Beforehand" in "Pre-Conclave Meeting of Cardinals"?
Francis's closest adviser, Cardinal Oscar R. Maradiaga, apparently said and implied that there were “'pre-conclave' meetings” for Francis's seemingly post conclave planned supposed future papacy which sounds like this brings into play Cardinal Burkes' the "only grounds that could be used for calling into question the validity of the election would be were the election organized by a campaign beforehand which is strictly forbidden." - The Catholic Monitor
CARD. ÓSCAR R. MARADIAGA
Coordinator, Council of Cardinals
"Let us remember that the Council of Cardinals arose from the "pre-conclave" meetings, where it was said that it would be beneficial for the Pope to have a group of cardinals "from the base" and that information not only reach him through the apostolic nunciatures or the Secretariat of State." - Rome Reports [We are in a new stage of the pontificate, not at the end - Rome ...https://www.romereports.com/en/2022/01/18/cardinal-maradiaga-we-are-in-a-new-stage-of-the-pontificate-not-at-the-end/]
The Restore-DC-Catholicism website asked yesterday "Do These Pre-Conclave Meetings Invalidate Cdl Bergoglio's Election To The Papacy?:
Yesterday an interview that the pope had was published by Telam and reported by thedialog.org. The pope seems to have let the cat out of the bag, as it were. He states that
the havoc he wreaked his accomplishments to date are goals agreed upon with other cardinals at a pre-conclave meeting. Let that sink in. Goals for his papacy were set before the conclave happened that elected him pope...
... The answers to these questions might well have bearing on the validity of both Pope Benedict's resignation and Pope Francis' election. Enough irregularities have been detected to call both into question. [http://restore-dc-catholicism.blogspot.com/2022/07/do-these-pre-conclave-meetings.html]
Bishop Rene Gracida summed the "canonical" situation we are in with the doubtfulness of the Pope Benedict XVI resignation:
"[I]f the [Pope Benedict XVI] Renunciation is doubtful, then in virtue of canon 332 §2, it is invalid for lack of due manifestation"
It appears that if someone has definite solid reasons from canon law to doubt the validity of Pope Benedict's resignation one can it appears possibly commit a sin if he doesn't resolve that doubt before claiming Francis is definitely pope.
The important theological book "Rodriguez and the Confession of Doubtful Mortal Sins" in page 225 says:
"If one does not resolve the doubt and deliberately does the action anyhow, it means that he is willing to offend God gravely, and therefore he commits a mortal sin."

Moreover, Dogmatic theology scholar Fr. Elwood Sylvester Berry (1879-1954), who was professor at Mount St. Mary's Seminary in Maryland, in his apologetic and dogmatic treatise which according to his introduction "was originally written in Latin" stated that according to Doctor of the Church St. Robert Bellarmine: "a doubtful pope is no pope... 'if a papal election is doubtful for any reason'" therefore a imperfect council of bishops is needed:
"Hence the saying of Bellarmine: a doubtful pope is no pope. 'Therefore,' continues the Cardinal, 'if a papal election is really doubtful for any reason, the elected should resign, so that a new election may be held. But if he refuses to resign, it becomes the duty of the bishops to adjust the matter, for although the bishops without the pope cannot define dogma nor make laws for the universal Church, they can and ought to decide, when occasion demands, who is the legitimate pope; and if the matter be doubtful, they should provide for the Church by having a legitimate and undoubted pastor elected. That is what the Council of Constance rightly did.'" 8

Moreover, Catholic pundit Patrick Coffin on his YouTube show asked Cardinal Raymond Burke:
"I was wondering rather if those rules [of the 2013 conclave that elected Francis] were violated and rather or not the whole election of Francis may be invalid. Is there any foundation for that speculation?"
Cardinal Burke answered:
"The only grounds that could be used for calling into question the validity of the election would be were the election organized by a campaign beforehand which is strictly forbidden and that would be difficult to demonstrate..."
"... If these persons [the St. Gallen Mafia of liberal cardinals] engaged in a active campaign first to undermined Pope Benedict XVI and at the same time to engineer the election of someone [Francis] then that could be a argument. I don't think I have the facts, and there have to be facts, to prove that. That's all I have to say about that."

Recently, Francis's closest adviser, Cardinal Oscar R. Maradiaga, apparently said and implied that there were “'pre-conclave' meetings” for Francis's seemingly post conclave planned supposed future papacy which sounds like this brings into play Cardinal Burkes' the "only grounds that could be used for calling into question the validity of the election would be were the election organized by a campaign beforehand which is strictly forbidden":
The cardinal begins by confirming that the idea of the C9 germinated during the “pre-conclave meetings,” with a clearly expressed goal: “that information not pass only through the apostolic nunciatures or the secretariat of State” and that the pope “be supported by a group of 'grassroots' cardinals.” [https://fsspx.news/en/news-events/news/cardinal%E2%80%99s-surprising-confidences-71198]
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.
