As of this writing---there sits no Pope in the Chair of Peter. Why so? Because a Pope must be a Catholic, and, “all popes” since Vatican II are heretics that have been ipso facto excommunicated and no longer remain Catholic!
When a Catholic is excommunicated, obviously he is no longer Catholic, and to be the Vicar of Christ, one must be Catholic. It’s been taught by the following sources that if a pope becomes a manifest, notorious, or public heretic, he loses his office ipso facto without declaration:
1. The infallible Papal Bull “Cum ex apostolatus officio of Pope Paul IV whereby he defined the Catholic truth: “That no one who can be shown to have deviated from the Catholic faith is eligible for election to the Papacy.”
2. The infallible Magisterium of the Church.
3. The 1917 Code of Canon Law.
4. The common consensus of all the Saints.
5. The unanimous consensus of the early Church Fathers.
Unless one is deaf, dumb, and blind…how could they not see, hear and know the heresy perpetrated by the Vatican II antipopes since their illegal takeover of the Catholic Church? Many books that would burst at its seams…could be written about their heresies!
Here’s what Pope Leo XIII in Satis Cognitum said: “No one who merely disbelieves in all (these heresies) can for that reason regard himself as a Catholic…and, if any one holds to a single one of these he is not Catholic.”
As a Catholic you MUST believe in the infallibility of the Pope. Unfortunately, many Catholics DO NOT. They act as the Protestants do in denying the Popes infallibility. Stop and ask yourself…would God, who is the Supreme Truth, permit even a scintilla of error to appear in the infallibility He gave His Popes?
Here’s what else Pope Paul IV said dogmatically in his Papal Bull, Quo Primum:
“We declare that if ever a Bishop, Archbishop, Patriarch or Primate, a Cardinal or Legate, or even a sovereign Pope, had before their elevation to the Cardinalate or Pontificate, deviated from the Catholic Faith or fallen into any heresy, the promotion or elevation—even if had taken place with the unanimous consent of the Cardinals—is invalid and null, without value and no one can say it is valid because the person concerned accepts the Office…and then enters into possession of the government and administration [of the office], or by the homage rendered of him by all: one cannot accept him as legitimate.”
Pope Paul IV went on to say:
“Persons promoted or called in this way lose, by the very fact (ipso facto) and without further declaration, their dignity, position, honor, title, authority, function, and power all at the same time…Those thus promoted are to be AVOIDED as warlocks, heathens, publicans, and heresiarchs…Whoever does not refuse fidelity and obedience to such persons thus promoted or called are tearing the Lord’s robe and will consequently be chastised by censures and pains…It is not permitted for anyone to reduce the bearing of this document containing approbation, innovation, sanction and suppression of dispositions and of decree, nor to act against it. Let whoever presumes to attack this document know that he is calling down the wrath of Almighty God and of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul.”
Pope Paul IV’s Bull describes exactly why the Vatican II antipopes cannot be legitimate popes. So, let’s be clear---the Seat of Peter is indeed EMPTY!
Some believe that an antipope can still be a Catholic and continue in the Church. Such erroneous beliefs fly in the face of the infallible teachings of Quo Primum, the infallible consensus of the Magisterium, and, of Canon Law.
Some say, “One pope cannot bind another pope.” This is utter nonsense distributed by those looking for any excuse not to accept the truth. And quite often this untruth, is told to Novus Ordo parishioners by their “priests”
This too I’ve heard—“He’s the pope (reference to a Vatican II pope), but he’s not my pope.” What say?
One only needs to read Quo Primum to discern that when a Pope issues an infallible statement it cannot be changed. As the Pope said: “It is not permitted for anyone to reduce the bearing of this document…nor to act against it.”
And the list goes on and on with one denial after another. But how will these naysayers answer to Jesus on Judgment Day? Will they tell Jesus they see nothing wrong with non-Catholics sitting in the Chair of Peter? That heretic “Popes” can remain Catholic? That He had no right to bind one Pope’s infallible ruling to another Pope? That infallibility should not have been given to Popes? Will they tell Jesus---their Maker---He was wrong? Food for thought, isn’t it?
Well, here’s better food for thought for you naysayers---change your ways and become the Catholic you should be.
