As time has passed during the Pontificate of Pope Francis, more and more conservative leaders have betrayed the Church by turning against the Vicar of Christ, appointed by God to lead the Church.
Each valid Roman Pontiff is chosen by the grace and providence of God to lead the Church. The Cardinals have not thwarted the will of God. They are all under the providence of God, which is inescapable. And His prevenient grace protects the Church without requiring cooperation from free will. (See this post: Does God Choose the Pope? by Francisco Figueroa.)
Since the Church is indefectible, any Pope accepted by the body of Bishops must be the valid Roman Pontiff. Otherwise, the Church would have been led astray by accepting an imposter. Antipopes have harassed the Church from her earliest days. But they have never been accepted by the body of Bishops. In order that the Church be indefectible, the Pope and the body of Bishops both have a type of indefectibility.
Pope Francis has been accepted by the body of Bishops, and so he must be the valid Pope. And according to the dogma of the First Vatican Council, each Pope has the gift of truth and a never-failing faith. This implies that no Pope can teach heresy, nor commit apostasy, heresy, or schism. And it further implies that certain other types of errors and mortal sins are also prevented by the grace of God. A Pope cannot teach grave errors on faith and morals, not even those that fall short of heresy. A Pope cannot have any evil intentions or purposes contrary to the Church, the Faith, or the salvation of souls. A Pope cannot teach heresy inadvertently, nor can he propagate heresy with or without awareness of that sin. All these things are contrary to the gift of truth and a never-failing faith, and contrary to the indefectibility of the Church.
So the papal accusers have no ground on which to stand. They can claim that the Pope erred to a limited extent in personal theological opinion or in non-infallible teachings. They can claim that he made imprudent decisions under discipline. I suppose they could accuse him of grave personal sins that are not related to the Church. But nothing else is permitted by the grace of God in any valid Pope.
So we can conclude, even without examining the accusations being made, that Pope Francis is not guilty of any of the offenses which God does not permit in the Roman Pontiff. This is a matter of faith.
The papal critics like to present arguments, explaining at length why they are right and the Pope is wrong. But all such arguments are contrary to the dogma of the indefectibility of the Church, and the dogma of the First Vatican Council on the Roman Pontiff. And they never address this argument.
The same thing happens with persons who disagree with Church teaching on contraception, on sexual ethics, on any topic at all. They present their own reasonings, which seem persuasive in their own eyes. And they want someone to explain how the Church could instead be right. But the only explanations they will accept are those with the same erroneous premises and assumptions as they have unwittingly adopted. There is no way to argue them into a state of faith, and it is pointless to try.
Instead, they should be told that faith is the path to salvation. Do not review every teaching and decision of the Church, and pass judgment as if you were above the Church. Accept what the Church teaches with faith. Then the reasonableness of Her teachings will gradually become clear.
