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!

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.

Cardinal Bergoglio takes the oath of conclave, March 11, 2015, with Cardinal Daneels standing behind him.

Cardinal Bergoglio takes the oath of conclave, March 11, 2015, with Cardinal Daneels standing behind him.

The From Rome blog has covered the “Team Bergoglio” voting scandal during the 2013 Conclave from the beginning.  In this, one of our last and culminating reports which verifies all the facti species, the Swiss Bishop’s Conference confirms the existence of the 20 yr conspiracy, not only operative in the Conclave of 2005, but also in 2013. For the entire timeline of reports, see here.

Reblogged in part from Litesite news (original here)

September 29, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) — While correcting local media reports, the Swiss bishops today confirmed the existence of the so-called “mafia” of bishops that aimed to counter the influence of Cardinal Ratzinger during the pontificate of John Paul II.

The confirmation came amid intense discussion in Switzerland about the question of the now well-known group of cardinals, called the “St. Gallen Group,” about which Cardinal Godfried Danneels recently made some disturbing, even embarrassing revelations.

This morning, the local radio station FM1 Today in Sankt Gallen, Switerland, reported on the alleged secret meetings of this “St. Gallen Group” that supposedly worked both on making Pope Benedict XVI resign and on getting Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio then elected for the Papal office. As sources for their claims, the radio station cited a new biography about Bishop Danneels, as well as a candid public statement that the cardinal himself made.  Summing up their claims about this seeming conspiracy, the radio station said:

(See original for full text)

The culminating substance of this final report from Life Site News, is that all the evidence points to this, that a homosexual-heretical cabal violated the Papal law against vote-promising and put into power Jorge Mario Bergoglio with express purpose of overthrowing the Catholic Faith on sexual morals and establishing a new false religion, posing as the Catholic Church.

What should you do about this? — Demand that the Catholic Cardinals act and denounce this cabal, for the sake of their own immortal souls and the good of the whole Church, and investigate and determine the validity of the election of 2013.
