Meet Benedict, The Armchair Pope. | Mundabor’s Blog HITS THE NAIL ON THE HEAD and disjoints all the news analysis pieces that follow
The Pope who – as it is abundantly clear by now – was too weak to do anything against the powerful gay lobby he saw around himself, and preferred to step down (though keeping pomp and title, so as not to be called a Celestine; which he will be called anyway, and will be considered much worse than the original) publishes a 6000 word document telling others how to do what he did not have the guts to do himself. Talk about armchair Pope (Emeritus, of course).
From what has emerged of his document, Benedict commits two huge errors:
- He fails to point out the deep connection between paedophilia and homosexuality. His essay does not seem to indicate that he sees any connection between the homosexual scourge plaguing the Church and the paedophile scandals.
- He keeps living in Benedictopia, a fully unreal place where there is a “good” Vatican II and all that has happened and was caused exactly by and in the name of Vatican II – is actually some sort of misreading or mistake.

We’re personally saddened for the sake of Catholics that don’t understand this whole thing and or are being tricked by this whole conciliar Catholic rhetoric -> Follow the commentary of these traditional Catholic sources that are truly confirmed as consistently on the pulse of traditional Catholic thought and teaching on this continuing conciliar Catholic crisis and they will give you the insight to see that the hierarchy is spin controlling to conceal the movement to indoctrinate relativism and redefine the human person and ontology – who God is

Joseph Ratzinger has gone to the the root of the scandal: the sexual revolution of ’68, the “collapse” of Catholic doctrine and morality between the 1960’s and 1980’s, the downfall of the distinction between good and evil and between truth and lies, the proliferation of “homosexual clubs” in the seminaries, the imposition of a “so-called due process” that rendered untouchable those who justified these novelties, including pedophilia itself, in the final analysis a departure from that God who is the Church’s raison d’être and the sense of direction of every man.
As a result, in Ratzinger’s judgment, the Church’s task today is to rediscover the courage to “speak of God” and to “prioritize” God over all, to return to believing that he is really present in the Eucharist instead of “downgrading it to a ceremonial gesture,” to look at the Church as full of weeds but also of good wheat, of saints, of martyrs, to be defended from the discredit of the Evil One, without deluding ourselves that we can make a better one one our own, entirely political, which “cannot represent any

Tracing the sexual revolution in Germany and Austria via an account of state-sponsored sex-ed films for children and youth showing sexual intercourse, Pope Benedict’s letter then notes the betrayal of theologians regarding the rejection of the concept of intrinsic evil – the concept that there are “actions which were always and under all circumstances to be classified as evil.”

World Over – 2019-04-11 – Full Episode with Raymond Arroyo – On YouTube
Cardinal Gerhard Muller, former prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith on Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI’s recent letter, “The Church and the Scandal of Sexual Abuse”.
Robert Royal, editor-in-chief of TheCatholicThing.org, and Fr. Gerald Murray, canon lawyer and priest of the Archdiocese of New York join us for complete analysis of the Pope Emeritus’ document and the latest Catholic news.
Translation = Robert Royal’s walking the fine line between neo-conservativism and conservativism can be fast forwarded through as well as Cdl Muller’s exoneration of Vatican II ) fellow partial architect can be fast forwarded through to get to Fr. Gerarld’s more hard hitting walking the fine line between traditional and conservatism – in between Raymond Arroyo’s good set up questions that always attempt main stream conservativism , as evidenced by the parachuting out of the plane when the video comes up of Pope Francis kneeling and kissing the feet of muslims , the same Pope that refuses to kneel for the consecration or adoration

This document has been an analyzed by a good many academics and scholars
Including EWTN and the theologians of both the US TFP as well as the Brazillian TFP and it is, without nuancing language , heretical
It brings to light conciliar Catholic philosophy that was taught by each of the Popes since the Council and their theologians
It relativized the relationship between God and man to conscience in its continuing attempt to raise the rights of man and his earth above the rights of God
It violates many disciplines of traditional Catholic thought , philosophy , theology and doctrine
Because the ax is at the root of the tree If they can successfully redefine ” the person” in relation to his existence And redefine ontology, who God is , in relationship to humans They can complete the last stages of changing Roman Catholicism into this new Catholic religion they have under construction.
You will never see again absolute truth , the fight against mortal sin in reference to man is a fallen creation and satan is the Prince of this world You will see an inversion of this in many ways
In the Council and. conciliar catbolicism come to full power under this Pope you have peronism , immanetism , anthropocentric humanism , transcendental existentialism, and the acceptance of Marxism and evolution of creation and evolution of doctrine
JP-II and Benedict XVI made these concepts official in their writings and teachings Francis I is committed to implementing them at a United Nations level
It’s clearly a different religion on every point of traditional Catholic teaching and understanding that they have ‘under construction” amid the ruins of the remaining Church
The door is now opened to earth worship to be integrated into Catholic worship which is opposed to the truth , and one Holy Sacrifice of the true high Priest , our savior Jesus Christ

From the letter to the Hebrews 7:11-28 The eternal priesthood of Christ
If perfection had been achieved through the levitical priesthood (on the basis of which the people received the law), what need would there have been to appoint a priest according to the order of Melchizedek, instead of choosing a priest according to the order of Aaron?
When there is a change of priesthood, there is necessarily a change of law. Now he of whom these things are said was of a different tribe, none of whose members ever officiated at the altar. It is clear that our Lord rose from the tribe of Judah, regarding which Moses said nothing about priests.
The matter is clearer still if another priest is appointed according to the likeness of Melchizedek: one who has become a priest, not in virtue of a law expressed in a commandment concerning physical descent, but in virtue of the power of a life which cannot be destroyed. Scripture testifies: “You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.”
The former commandment has been annulled because of its weakness and uselessness, for the law brought nothing to perfection. But a better hope has supervened, and through it we draw near to God.
This has been confirmed by an oath. The priests of the old covenant became priests without an oath, unlike Jesus to whom God said:
“The Lord has sworn, and he will not repent:
‘You are a priest forever, according to the order of Melchizedek.’”
Thus has Jesus become the guarantee of a better covenant.
Under the old covenant there were many priests because they were prevented by death from remaining in office; but Jesus, because he remains forever, has a priesthood which does not pass away. Therefore he is always able to save those who approach God through him, since he forever lives to make intercession for them.
It was fitting that we should have such a high priest: holy, innocent, undefiled, separated from sinners, higher than the heavens. Unlike the other high priests, he has no need to offer sacrifice day after day, first for his own sins and then for those of the people; he did that once for all when he offered himself. For the law sets up as high priests men who are weak, but the word of the oath which came after the law appoints as priest the Son, made perfect forever.
From a treatise on faith addressed to Peter by Saint Fulgentius of Ruspe, bishop The Son of God offered himself for us
The sacrifices of animal victims which our forefathers were commanded to offer to God by the holy Trinity itself, the one God of the old and the new testaments, foreshadowed the most acceptable gift of all. This was the offering which in his compassion the only Son of God would make of himself in his human nature for our sake.
The Apostle teaches that Christ offered himself for us to God as a fragrant offering and sacrifice. He is the true God and the true high priest who for our sake entered once for all into the holy of holies, taking with him not the blood of bulls and goats but his own blood. This was foreshadowed by the high priest of old when each year he took blood and entered the holy of holies.
Christ is therefore the one who in himself alone embodied all that he knew to be necessary to achieve our redemption. He is at once priest and sacrifice, God and temple. He is the priest through whom we have been reconciled, the sacrifice by which we have been reconciled, the temple in which we have been reconciled, the God with whom we have been reconciled. He alone is priest, sacrifice and temple because he is all these things as God in the form of a servant; but he is not alone as God, for he is this with the Father and the Holy Spirit in the form of God.
Hold fast to this and never doubt it: the only-begotten Son, God the Word, becoming man offered himself for us to God as a fragrant offering and sacrifice. In the time of the old testament, patriarchs, prophets and priests sacrificed animals in his honor, and in honor of the Father and the Holy Spirit as well. Now in the time of the new testament the holy catholic Church throughout the world never ceases to offer the sacrifice of bread and wine, in faith and love, to him and to the Father and the Holy Spirit, with whom he shares one godhead.
Those animal sacrifices foreshadowed the flesh of Christ which he would offer for our sins, though himself without sin, and the blood which he would pour out for the forgiveness of our sins. In this sacrifice there is thanksgiving for, and commemoration of, the flesh of Christ that he offered for us, and the blood that the same God poured out for us. On this Saint Paul says in the Acts of the Apostles: Keep watch over yourselves and over the whole flock, in which the Holy Spirit has appointed you as bishops to rule the Church of God, which he won for himself by his blood.
Those sacrifices of old pointed in sign to what was to be given to us. In this sacrifice we see plainly what has already been given to us. Those sacrifices foretold the death of the Son of God for sinners. In this sacrifice he is proclaimed as already slain for sinners, as the Apostle testifies: Christ died for the wicked at a time when we were still powerless, and when we were enemies we were reconciled with God through the death of his Son.
