What do the papal accusers want? What if they get all that they desire?
1. I suppose they want Pope Francis removed, but he can only be removed by death or resignation. Suppose he resigns, and is replaced by a very conservative Pope. This hypothetical Pope, like all valid Popes, cannot err gravely on doctrine or discipline, nor can he fail in faith by apostasy, heresy, or idolatry. So he cannot reject the valid papacy of Francis, nor the valid Second Vatican Council.
In addition, the papal accusers have opposed other recent Popes, from John 23 and Paul 6, whom they mainly oppose for Vatican II, to Pope Saint John Paul II, whom they now see as too much like Pope Francis. (Actually, Pope Francis is following Pope Saint John Paul II.) They will not be satisfied in having a current conservative Pope. They will want a Pope who holds the same views as them, and who rejects Vatican II and the recent Popes.
But no valid Roman Pontiff can ever reject an Ecumenical Council and Pope-Saints as well as other valid Popes. There have been past conflicts between successive Popes. But these did not reach the extent of the desires of the papal accusers: to reject a Council and to reverse many substantial decisions of doctrine and discipline by successive valid Popes. It is simply not possible, under the grace and providence of God, for a valid Pope to do so.
2. The other problem is that the rejection of Vatican II and the recent Popes and their substantial decisions on discipline is schismatic, and is based on numerous heretical errors. These heretical errors include rejection of papal faith, rejection of papal immunity from grave error, rejection of teachings of Vatican II which have become infallible under the ordinary and universal Magisterium, the exaltation of external discipline to the level of alleged dogma, the rejection of the very principle of submission to the authority of Popes and Councils and of the Magisterium itself, the rejection of the authority of the Church to ordain women as deacons, etc.
So even if a very conservative Pope is elected, the papal accusers will still be in a state of heresy for continuing to reject various dogmas, and a state of schism for rejecting past Popes and Vatican II. Moreover, in rejecting the dogmas of Vatican One on papal faith and papal immunity from error, they implicitly reject that Council as well.
3. To obtain all that they inordinately desire, the papal accusers must choose for themselves an antipope. For valid Popes are preserved by the prevenient grace of God from asserting the errors that the papal accusers desire to accept as dogma. Only an antipope could give them what they wish. And so, if they get what they want, they will be following an antipope (I know not whom) and rejecting the recent Popes and Councils [plural].
4. The end result is for the haters of Pope Francis, these accusers of the Vicar of Christ, accusers of other recent Popes and Councils, to depart from the one true Church — having utterly rejected Her as if she were a harlot, when She is a spotless Bride. And then they must form their own false church.
If this happens, the false church they create will quickly fall apart. For even now they cannot agree among themselves on what to believe and what to do. They will be shattered into many smaller schismatic groups. Then their members, disillusioned by the state of the false church into which they were led by the papal accusers, will fall away from Christianity altogether. And this is part of the great apostasy predicted in Sacred Scripture.
5. I don’t see any other path for the accusers of the Vicar of Christ, the false sons of Mary, these adulterers who claim to be chaste. They will not accept the authority of any Pope or Council, if what is decided is contrary to their own minds and their beloved harlot, the conservative Catholic subculture. And the sooner they depart, the better it will be for the one true Church.
The Church must become smaller and holier — much smaller and much holier. Do not be surprised or dismayed when this happens. It is part of the plan of God.
