Open Letter to Bishop Gracida

A few days ago, a Catholic Bishop in Texas, USA, proposed that the Cardinals meet to discuss the invalidity of the election of Bergoglio to the papacy.

You can read his blog post on that here:

As editor of the From Rome Blog, I have written the following open Letter to Bishop Gracida, which I have posted to his blog, as a comment, but which I republish here for the sake of all the Cardinals and Bishops and clergy of the Church:

Your Excellency,

As the blogger who covered the “Team Bergoglio” scandal (from Nov. 2014 onwards) regarding the irregularities of the Conclave of 2013, I would like to comment on your proposal, if I may.

Surely one of the habitual graces of office of the Roman Pontiff is that of infallibility. And I grant that if an occupant of the Holy See show himself not to enjoy such a habit of grace, this is facti species admissible to consideration.

But I submit there are objective canonical reasons, more weighty, to make this consideration.

First of all, we have the written and oral testimony of Bergoglio’s own supporters, who are unanimous in asserting that there was a conspiracy to have him elected by means of the solicitation of vote promises to obtain 25 votes in the first ballot. This is a formal violation of UDG 81, which imposes an excommunication latae sententiae on such offendors, and all who participated in obtaining those votes are also ipso facto excommunicated in virtue of Canon 1329 § 2.

Thus,, if Bergoglio participated formally in this conspiracy he would also be excommunciated and thus in virtue of Canon 1331 incapable of validly assuming the office to which he is elected.

However, even if he did not, Canon 171 §2 would make his election invalid, since it forbids the counting of votes of those who are excommunicate at the time of voting, and thus presumably at least 25 of the 78 votes which he received in the final decisive vote, by which he appeared to be elected, must be struck from the record, leaving the Conclave unconsummated and a sede vacante.

I wrote about all of this more than 4 years ago, and its extremely disappointing that no Cardinal or Bishop has taken any action on these matters. I also proposed a way to encourage Bergoglio and the Cardinals to discuss this in proper canonical form.

I am therefore gratified that you have raised the issue, once again. I hope the number of those who believe Canon Law should be followed grows, as it does provide a solution to the present problem, even if an imperfect Synod is not called.

One could also bring to bear the terms of Pope Paul IV’s Bull “Cum ex apostolatus officio” (never abrogated), which expressly invalidates the election of a heretic, or of anyone who transgressed the decrees of any previous ecumenical council (Trent for example), as Bergoglio is known to have done, by approving the giving of communion to public heretics while Archbishop of Buenas Aires.

HISTORY:  In 1571, faced with the naval invasion of the Italian peninsula by the Islamic forces of the Ottoman Empire, Saint Pius V called for the establishment of an international Catholic Alliance to meet them in a decisive naval battle and destroy once and for all the Muslim domination of the Mediterranean.

Responding to this call were King Philip II of Spain (Coat of arms at bottom of Crucifix on the Left), the forces of the Papal States (Coat of arms of Saint Pius V at the center), the forces of the Republic of Venice (Coat of arms to the right), and the naval forces of Austria under the command of Don Juan of Austria (Coat of arms at the bottom). Designed by Pope Saint Pius V this flag flew on the Flagship of Don Juan of Austria.

Bergoglio was a pertinacious public heretic years before the 2013 Conclave

As the prophecy given by Zacharia gives in Chapter 11:16-17:

For behold I will raise up a shepherd in the land, who shall not visit what is forsaken, nor seek what is scattered, nor heal what is broken, nor nourish that which standeth, and he shall eat the flesh of the fat ones, and break their hoofs. [17] O shepherd, and idol, that forsaketh the flock: the sword upon his arm and upon his right eye: his arm shall quite wither away, and his right eye shall be utterly darkened!

Ivereigh Confesses!

September 5, 2017 — London:  Austin Ivereigh, the author of the book, The Great Refomer, which spilled the beans on the entire Team Bergoglio scandal, has penned a letter to the Editor of the Telegraph in the United Kingdom, on the occasion of the demise of the Late Cardinal O’Conner, the leader of the conspiracy to get Jorge Mario Bergoglio elected in the last Conclave.

This imbroglio first came to light on Nov. 22, 2014,  when John Bingham, a reporter for the Telegraph, covered the news of the publication of Ivereigh’s book.

Here is an image of that Letter to the Editor, published today, Sept 5, 2017 in the Telegraph (care of a follower of @VeriCatholici on Twitter).  The commentary on the text is is our own:

Paragraph1, Line 2: “Fixed” is the correct term, if you understand rightly the words used in Ivereigh’s book, as all the facts heretofore which have been published confirm.

Ivereigh objects, as he has ever since the rebuttal to his book by Father Lombardi, the former Vatican Spokesman through Sismografo, the anonymous Vatican blog, on Dec. 1, 2014.

Paragraph 4, line 3: Ivereigh confesses that the late Cardinal “explained to” him that lobbying was “important in ensuring” that a candidate would be elected. Even though as we have shown, such canvassing for votes is illicit and can lead to an invalid election. This is the first time Ivereigh explicitly in the written record affirms the first hand source for his book. What he pretends, however, is that what he wrote regarded passive lobbying, when he explicitly says in his book that “Team Bergoglio’s” planned and executed method was the seeking of vote-promises.

Paragraph 5: “But he was equally adamant”….here is Team Bergoglio’s repeated blasphemy, that success equals God’s approval.  We know of no previous papal candidate whose supporters have resorted to a theological defense of a lobbying effort. Perhaps, because if what you did was honest, you do not need to blame it on God. And, contrariwise, if you have any fear of God, if what you did was dishonest you don’t try to blame Him for it.

Indeed, this entire Letter to the Editor is part of “Team Bergoglio’s”  ongoing effort to maintain a fake news narrative on the reality of the crime.

Paragraph 6: Then at “a number of Latin-American cardinals have assured me that his initiative (largely confined to the English-speaking cardinals) was not the only one in favour of Jorge Mario Bergoglio”….Ivereigh totally forgets what he wrote in his own book, that the conspiracy to elect Bergoglio included 30 Cardinals, both Latin-Americans, Africans and Europeans.

Perhaps he forgets, because he has been so strongly criticized by Team Bergoglio members and supporters for spilling the beans about the conspiracy which likely invalidated the election, that he has not picked up his own book to read what he wrote in the last 2 years!

Ordo Militaris Catholicus: First Meeting for Europe — Saturday, Nov. 19: Piazza Risorgimento

Insignia of the Ordo Militaris Catholicus

Catholics who grieve for the persecution and genocide of Catholics at the hands of DAESH (ISIL) are cordially invited to attend the First Meeting of the Ordo Militaris Catholicus, at the Piazza Risorgimento, Roma, on Saturday, Nov. 19, at 10 A.M..

The Ordo Militaris Catholicus is a international defense and security initiative of Catholics for Catholics who are suffering persecution for their faith, where their defense and liberation requires military intervention or security actions, and this is allowed by local and/or international law.

Unlike many other humanitarian efforts or Order’s of Knighthood, the Ordo Militaris aims to be a true military organization which undertakes military actions in accordance with international law, where this is permitted and/or sponsored by sovereign states: and this to protect and liberate Catholics from the hands of their enemies.

Those interested in joining this humanitarian effort, whether they are members of the military, ex-military, or non-military, men or women, are invited to attend our First Meeting in Europe to see how they can assist in founding a national Chapter in Italy or their native land.

To attend the Meeting, which is open to the public and to journalists, meet at the Piazza Risorgimento, adjacent to the Vatican at 10:00 A.M. under the insignia of the Order, which will be unfurled at 9:55 A.M..  The location has been chosen to indicate the desire of the Order to participate in the restoration of the Catholic Order of things.  In case of rain, the meeting will be held at the Ris Cafe, on the north side of the same Piazza.

During the meeting, the founder of the Order will speak about the nature, structure, rule and requirements for membership, as well as the goals and methods to be employed.
