Cardinal Brandmüller: Defenders of a Second Union are "excommunicated"

Image result for Brandmüller

Has Cardinal Brandmüller just thrown down the gauntlet at Bergoglio?

Does he have bodyguards and a food taster?

Bergoglio will not answer the dubia. If he answers one way, he would need to renounce his program of error and uphold magisterial teaching. If the other, he convicts himself of heresy and would cease to be Pope.

The logic then, is that Bergoglio is already in heresy, it is only that it has not been formally proclaimed by those empowered to do so - cardinals and bishops in an "imperfect Council." Following logically then, whether an imperfect Council takes place or not to declare the formal declaration of heresy - that is one thing, the reality of the fact is quite another, that Bergoglio is in heresy. Then the real tough question must be asked, "If Bergoglio is in heresy, is he still Pope?"

"Anyone who says a new union can begin while a legally married partner is still alive is excommunicated, because this is an heresy," Cardinal Walter Brandmüller, 88, told the German daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (October 28).
Brandmüller explains: "The fact that marriage is a sacrament and therefore indissoluble is a dogma." It points out that no adulterer can receive Holy Communion.
The Cardinal can not understand the fact that Francesco does not respond to the Dubia about the Amoris Laetitia. He asks: "Can something be good today, if it was a sin yesterday?" Also: "Are there still actions that are always morally condemnable in every circumstance, such as murder or adultery?" Brandmüller is concerned about a "schism" in the Church.

In three or so sentences this courageous Cardinal has certainly challenged Bergoglio and all his sycophantic minions! Compared to the endless writings and pages of prose from those who KNOW the man is a heretic, this short, sharp and to the point denunciation of Francis et al. is utterly refreshing! May Almighty God, through his Holy Archangel, St Michael, protect this dear Cardinal Brandmuller from any attempts on his life and may God, The Most Holy Paraclete cover him with His Wisdom throughout all his days!

"If Bergoglio is in heresy, is he still Pope?"

NO! NO! NO! SAYS:

1. The topic of a pope becoming a heretic was addressed at the First Vatican Council by Archbishop Purcell, of Cincinnati, Ohio: “The question was also raised by a Cardinal, ‘What is to be done with the Pope if he becomes a heretic?’ It was answered that there has never been such a case; ... from the moment he becomes a heretic he is not the head or even a member of the Church. The Church would not be, for a moment, obliged to listen to him when he begins to teach a doctrine the Church knows to be a false doctrine, and he would cease to be Pope, being deposed by God Himself. (The New Princeton Review, Volume 42 p. 648, also The Life and Life-work of Pope Leo XIII. By James Joseph McGovern p. 241.)

2.Bull of Pope Paul IV — Cum Ex Apostolatus Officio, 1559 :
“Further, if ever it should appear that any bishop (even one acting as an archbishop, patriarch or primate), or a cardinal of the Roman
Church, or a legate (as mentioned above), or even the Roman Pontiff
(whether prior to his promotion to cardinal, or prior to his election
as Roman Pontiff), has beforehand deviated from the Catholic faith or
fallen into any heresy, We enact, decree, determine and define ... by that very fact and WITHOUT NEED TO MAKE ANY FURTHER DECLARATION, shall be deprived of any dignity, position, honor, title, authority, office and power.”

3. Canon 188.4 (1917 Code of Canon Law) teachers that : If a cleric (pope, bishop, etc.) becomes a heretic, he loses his office without any declaration by operation of law.

4. St. Alphonsus Liguori: – “If ever a Pope, as a private person, should fall into heresy, he should at once fall from the Pontificate. If, however, God were to permit a pope to become a notorious and contumacious heretic, he would by such fact cease to be pope, and the
apostolic chair would be vacant.”

5. “Given, therefore, the hypothesis of a pope who would become notoriously heretical, one must concede without hesitation that he would by that very fact lose the pontifical power, insofar as, having become an unbeliever, he would by his own will be cast outside the body of the Church.” (Billot — De Ecclesia, 1927.)

6. Now the fifth true opinion, is that a Pope who is a manifest heretic, ceases in himself to be Pope and head, just as he ceases in himself to be a Christian and member of the body of the Church: whereby, he can be judged and punished by the Church. This is the opinion of all the ancient Fathers, who teach that manifest heretics soon lose all jurisdiction…. The foundation of this opinion is that a manifest heretic, is in no way a member of the Church; that is, neither in spirit nor in body, or by internal union nor external….
(St. Robert Bellarmine, On the Roman Pontiff, Vol. 1, Book II, Chapter 30, trans. Ryan Grant [Mediatrix Press, 2015], pp. 304-310.)

7. "If someone is not even capable of being a member of the Church on account of public heresy, then much less could he be the head of the Church! This stands to reason, for “it is absurd to imagine that he who is outside can command in the Church” (Pope Leo XIII, Encyclical Satis Cognitum, n. 15.)

8. “Actually only those are to be included as members of the Church who have been baptized and profess the true faith… For not every sin, however grave it may be, is such as of its own nature to sever a man from the Body of the Church, as does schism or HERESY or apostasy…”
(Pope Pius XII, Encyclical Mystici Corporis, nn. 22-23).

9. Coronata — Institutions Juris Canonici, 1950: "...if the Roman Pontiff were to profess heresy, before any condemnatory sentence (which would be impossible
anyway) he would lose his authority.”

10. Billot — De Ecclesia, 1927 – “Given, therefore, the HYPOTHESIS of a pope who would become notoriously heretical, one must concede without hesitation that he would by that very fact lose the pontifical power, insofar as, having become an unbeliever, he would by his own will be cast outside the body of the Church.”

11. St. Francis de Sales: – “Now when the Pope is explicitly a heretic, hefalls ipso facto from his dignity and out of the Church . . . ”

12. St. Alphonsus Liguori: – “If ever a Pope, as a private person, should fall into heresy, he should at once fall from the Pontificate. IF,however, God were to permit a pope to become a notorious and
contumacious heretic, he would by such fact cease to be pope, and the
apostolic chair would be vacant.”

13. St. Antoninus: – “In the case in which the Pope would become a
heretic, he would find himself, by that very fact alone and WITHOUT ANY OTHER SENTENCE, separated from the Church. A head separated from a body cannot, as long as it remains separated, be head of the same body from which it was cut off.”

14. Wernz-Vidal — Canon Law, 1943 – “Through notorious and openly divulged heresy, the Roman Pontiff, should he fall into heresy, by that very fact (ipso facto) is deemed to be deprived of the power of
jurisdiction even BEFORE ANY DECLATORY JUDGEMENT BY THE CHURCH… A
Pope who falls into public heresy would cease ipso facto to be a
member of the Church; therefore, he would also cease to be head of the Church.” And also: “A doubtful pope is no pope.”

15. Catholic Encyclopedia, 1913 – “The Pope himself, if notoriously guilty of heresy, would cease to be Pope because he would cease to be a member of the Church.”

That's enough to make the point. An heretic cannot become, or remain Pope. So speaks the One, Holy, Catholic, Apostolic Church of Jesus Christ!!!

Sorry! Repeated two quotes in comment, then put comment in two posts. Getting geriatric. Start of Altzheimer's?

"Brandmüller is concerned about a "schism" in the Church." I would respectfully suggest that the CC has been in a festering schism since VII. Nothing but rescinding that Council will suffice. If PF is deemed by our theologians, canonists, etc. not to be a heretic after all his blasphemies, overturning scripture, bashing the Deposit of Faith, falsifying the Magisterium to suit his NWO agenda & completely ignoring Tradition & the writings of previous popes going back to the First Apostles, then more restraints must be in future attached to the word 'infallibility". ++Brandmuller did not refer to the fraternal formal correction having been made or the chance of an imperfect council being called. He cannot, surely, be still waiting for an answer to the Dubia? ++Burke said Truth is greater than numbers, & the numbers of Catholics now calling for clarification of AL from PF is noticeably growing, so why are we still waiting for PF to do his duty in confirming the Brethren in the True Faith? Each day brings more rupture to the Bride of Christ & the souls being lost will have to be accounted to God for by these unfaithful men of the cloth.
