Full and Absolute Power

Nino Lo Bello, The Vatican Empire, “The Lateran Treaty V:”

Lord paramount of the Holy See, the pope is first among his bishops, all of whom come under his direct jurisdiction; in theory he has full and absolute power over the Roman Catholic Church. Every decree requires his approval. He can obey or ignore precedent. He can set aside tradition; he can write (or rewrite) constitutions; he can change discipline without consultation; he can proclaim dogmas on his own. Although on important matters the pope is supposed to seek counsel and advice from the College of Cardinals, he is empowered to make up his own mind and take action. On theological questions, the pope invariably consults with his bishops and cardinals, but, on matters of high policy, he may evolve a course of action without any previous consultations, as did Pope John when, without calling in the Curia cardinals for their views, he decided to go ahead with the Ecumenical Council.

The pope has executive as well as legislative and judiciary powers. He can be judged by no man, and there is no appeal from his decisions. In this respect his position is tantamount to that of a sovereign who cannot be brought to court. Acting in his executive capacity, the pope may (1) approve or sanction or suppress religious orders, (2) grant indulgences, (3) beatify or canonize saints, (4) appoint bishops, (5) erect, administer, alter, or suppress bishoprics, (6) assign an auxiliary bishop to one who is incapacitated, (7) found and legislate for papal universities, (8) issue liturgical books, (9) administer the temporal goods of ecclesiastical foundations, (10) erect and govern missions dependent on the Holy See.

As a legislator, the pope may (1) call, preside over, and adjourn ecumenical councils, (2) regulate holy days and Catholic feasts, (3) introduce new rites and abrogate old ones, (4) issue ex cathedra decretals on belief, (5) introduce, alter, or suppress Church laws on any subject, (6) defend doctrine against heresies, (7) define fast days and periods of fasting. Also liberally defined are the pope’s judicial duties. He may (1) relax vows and oaths for members of the religious who want to return to secular life, (2) give matrimonial dispensations, (3) act as a court, (4) establish rules of judicial procedure, (5) establish censures or punishments, (6) organize courts for hearing cases, (7) organize courts or appoint synodal judges for the diocese of Rome.

Soros in the Vatican

at News With Views:

Are you aware that years ago, George Soros managed to get inside the Vatican? Yes he did, is still there, and has been shaping the Catholic Church ever since.

How else could one explain Pope Francis?  Nobody had any idea who he was until suddenly he was paraded to the center of the College of Cardinals who had ‘voted’ him in as the new pope. So it is true. Money not only talks but conquers.

This writer had absolutely no knowledge of him even being in The College of Cardinals. He was placed there by Soros.  This new ‘pope’ then said to us, now get this, “the first thing I intend to do is to Redistribute the Wealth.”  That is right out of the Book of Marx.

Is Jack Chick Running the Catholic Church?

John Zmirak at The Stream:

By now you’ve likely read the reports that Pope Francis told a gay man that God made him that way, and doesn’t mind his orientation. The Stream published a characteristically thoughtful and cautious column by Joseph Sciambra on it. (A convert back to Christianity after years spent in the gay lifestyle, Sciambra is one of the most important and brave apostles today. Follow his blog. Also see The Stream contributor Robert Oscar Lopez’s reflections.)

Reading the Papal Auspices

Given the track record of dubious, partial, or garbled papal statements, and reports on the same, there seem to be three logical possibilities here:…

The Abomination of Self-Deification

Huss:

“The papacy is the abomination of self-deification in the holy place. Woe then is me, if I do not preach of that abomination, if I do not weep over it, write about it.”

~Lessons From the Reformation, Alonzo Jones, Chapter 15, The Reformation and the Papacy, (Ages Software), qtd. in Rand Windburn, “The Abomination of Desolation: Past, Present or Future? Matthew 24:1-15 Examined,” page 29, online at http://www.iconbusters.com/iconbusters/htm/catalogue/abomination_of_desolation.pdf

The Greatest Arch-Abomination

Martin Luther:

“Thus you see whether the Pope is not the greatest arch-abomination of all abominations, to whom Christ and Daniel refer; and the true Antichrist, of whom it is written that he sitteth in the temple of God, among the people, where Christ is named and where his kingdom, spirit, baptism, Word and faith should be: because he interferes with the office and kingdom of Christ by his fanaticism of the spiritual rites of Christ, wants to rule over the consciences and govern with his propositions and works. And he can in truth be called an ‘abomination of desolation,’ who is only destroying and laying waste everything, for as has been said: Christ and my works cannot abide together; if the one stands, the other must go down and be destroyed; wherefore the Pope has made desolate the kingdom of Christ, as far as his diocese reaches, and all who join him have denied Christ.”

~Sermons of Martin Luther, Vol. 1, Sermons on Gospel Texts, The Signs on the Day of Judgment, (Ages Software), qtd. in Rand Windburn, “The Abomination of Desolation: Past, Present or Future? Matthew 24:1-15 Examined,” page 18, online at http://www.iconbusters.com/iconbusters/htm/catalogue/abomination_of_desolation.pdf

A Horrible Wrath of God

Martin Luther:

“But why doth the Pope name himself an Earthly God, as though the true only, and Almighty God in Heaven were not also a God on Earth. Truly the Pope’s Kingdome is a horrible wrath of God, an abomination of desolation which standeth in the Holy place, as Christ speaking directly of it saith, Who so readeth let him understand. Mat. 24.”

Canonization 2014-The Canonization of Saint John XXIII and Saint John Paul II (14037015405)

Pope Francis I:

“The interpretation of the Sacred Scriptures cannot be solely an individual scholarly effort, but must always be compared with, inserted within, and authenticated by the living tradition of the Church.”
