“I’m Am Not Saying that Francis Is Certainly Pope” – His Excellency Bishop Williamson

In the video linked below at the 1 hour, 55 minutes, and 20 seconds mark, His Excellency Bishop Richard Williamson acknowledges that the arguments put forth by those who accept Benedict XVI as the current true pope are serious and that he is not saying that Francis is certainly pope.  How is it that a False Resistance bishop can acknowledge and say these things and yet not one True Resistance clergy member can publicly admit the same?  Instead, what we hear from the True Resistance clergy is that they accept Francis as the current true pope and that they will wait for the Church to decide otherwise or that to accept Benedict XVI as the current true pope is nonsense.  True Resistance clergy and faithful, please look seriously into this issue.  The identity of the current true pope is an issue of critical importance.  To acknowledge Francis as the current true pope is, objectively, an act of schism!   Why?  Because Benedict XVI, as the supreme head of the Church, decided what the nature of his “resignation” would be, and that is that it would be only a renunciation of the exercise of the active ministry.  That’s it!  As I mentioned in a previous post, if it can be shown that Benedict XVI intended to keep even one iota of the office (munus) of the papacy, he would remain pope.  Read his Declaratio.   It is clear that he did not renounce his office (munus) entirely and without qualification.  As a matter of fact, he did not renounce his office (munus) at all.  What he renounced was an exercise of a power that belongs to the office of the papacy (see this diagram).  Therefore, he is still the current true pope.


The Subject Matter of the Second Volume of To Deceive the Elect – Fr. Paul Kramer

“…..the primary purpose of the first part of this volume is to briefly elaborate the teaching of the Church on the nature of ecclesiastical authority insofar as it applies to the Church’s power to determine infallibly and judge between multiple claimants to the papal throne, or to judge on the legitimacy of a doubtful pope who is reputed to be the valid pontiff — a putative pope. In the second part, I will apply this doctrine to the claims on the Petrine munus of Jorge Bergoglio and Joseph Ratzinger; and I will prove that Bergoglio is a formal heretic, and therefore an   incapable subject of the papacy, and therefore not a valid pope; while, Joseph Ratzinger (Pope Benedict XVI), according to the standards of canonical tradition, does not present in his doctrines any certain indicia of formal heresy which would constitute proof sufficient to disqualify him from holding the Petrine office. A brief but concise exposition on the nullifying canonical defects of Benedict’s renunciation will also be included this volume, which will demonstrate that Benedict XVI, even as Pope Emeritus remains in full possession of the Petrine munus, so that upon his death, the Apostolic See will become vacant, and it will then be necessary for a new pope to be elected.”
