Pope Francis has been and still is a polarizing pope. He has undone the recovery of sanity and unity in the Church brought about painstakingly by St. Pope John Paul II and Pope Emeritus Benedict.
Clergyman and others in high places have questioned him on a number of topics and His Holiness' response, far from the humility so many proclaim for him, is silent as most absolute monarchs wold be.
Absolute monarchism in the Church is a very virulent form of clericalism because there are no canon laws to deal with a problematic pope.
By problematic, I don't necessarily mean a heretical pope.
It could be a pope suffering from Alzheimer.
It could be a pope suffering from a major mental illness involving schizophrenia, paranoia and other pathologies.
It could be a pope who is found after his election to be credibly accused of sexual misconduct with adults or minors.
It could be a heretical pope.
Who then makes the decision to remove a pope?
That's the question.
Those accusing Pope Francis of heresy are asking him to repent and if he doesn't the bishops (which bishops ?) are to tell him he ceases to be pope if he hold and teaches heretical doctrines.
We are in a mess of gran proportions because there are no clear procedures outlined for each and every Catholic to know and understand.
What to do; what to do; O what are we to do?
That's a good question.
