Cardinal Sarah, who has been somewhat reticent to speak of Apostasy, except tangentially, has warned of Apostasy in the Catholic Church.
He has spoken of the “Apocalypse” at times but has rarely spoken directly against Francis. He did so at the Synod on the Family (2015).
Some theologians have posed the question of whether a Pope could become a Muslim and still remain Pope. While it seems a ridiculous concept, some people act as if it does not matter.
Apostasy & Excommunication
Pope Gregory IX said that a cleric in Apostasy looses all clerical authority. (Decretals of Gregory IX, V, title 9). A person in Apostasy he also looses all privileges.
Many theologians infer that this would mean he ceases to be pope since unlike holy orders, papacy may be resigned. Fr. Fessio, founder of Ignatius Press, said so on EWTN’s World Over.
“What if a Pope decides to…become a Muslim. Would he cease to be Pope?” -Fr. Joseph Fessio.
Papacy is not a permanent mark of character on the soul: “a priest forever like Melchizedek of old” (Ps. 110:4, Heb. 7:4-10). Since it may be resigned, it ceases.
‘Pope’ Francis Apostasized?
Francis, with the Abu Dhabi document Human Fraternity A Document For World Peace and Living Together, may have apostatized. Human Fraternity, which Francis signed, states: “The pluralism and the diversity of religions…are willed by God in His wisdom.”
This, by writ, is the putting of all other religious founders on an equal plane. The Divine Christ is now equal to the non-Divine Muhammad in Francis’s mind, which is blasphemy and a betrayal of Christ.
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but by me” (John 14:6).
Here is my recent article on Apostasy, which Bishop Schneider recently identified in the Vatican and condemned. Several other bishops have also said apostasy as going on in the Church, including Burke, Schneider, and others.
Apostasy for a cleric is not like Apostasy for the laity. It comes with many penalties. If a person in the priesthood loses the cleric state, then he cannot be pope.
Case of Saint Peter
In the case of Saint Peter, he denied Christ three times:
“Woman, I do not know [Jesus].” (Luke 22:57).
However, Peter was an Apostle, not just a pope. His Apostleship was a permanent mark of Character (Ps. 110:4, Heb. 7:4-10).
Most Church Fathers say Peter did not deny Jesus in the strict sense of Apostasy, unlike Judas. Jesus did not say that Peter betrayed him, but would deny him.
“But herein must [Peter] be revered, that [Peter] forsook not our Lord” -Saint Ambrose, Bishop, Church Father.
Francis does not have the refuge of Apostleship.
Think of all the miracles I have confirmed, several of which have been accepted and approved by a local bishop in the case of Servant of God Thea Bowman.
Think of all the errors which contradict Dogma that Francis has committed. Think of the Dogma of the Council of Trent Session 6, Canon 16, which teaches: “Absolutely certain and infallible special revelations.”
Francis secretly resigned on February 10, 2017.
“Immaculate Heart of Mary pray for us now and at the hour of our passing. Amen.”
In the Heart of Mary is all wisdom and insight – The Divine Mysteries (Luke 2:19).
