Breaking Form, Pope "Decapitates" A Cardinal – With Becciu's Exile, A Monster Vatican Precedent
In a 2016 interview with his hometown paper, Pope Francis told La Nación one key to his governing style:
"I don't cut off heads," he said. "I've never liked doing that."
Yet now, the pontiff has done just that, effectively stripping one of his inner circle of the red hat in stunning, dramatic fashion.
There has been a recent string of statements coming from the Vatican and with Pope Francis’ approval, all of which are stunningly traditional, pragmatic and even authoritative:
First, the Vatican told the German bishops, most now heterodox, that only priests could be pastors of parishes because of Vatican II’s theological and doctrine concerning the ecclesiology of the Church. That’s pretty conservative and a no-brainer for the orthodox, but not so much for the heterodox who hate both Trent’s and Vatican II’s orthodoxy.
Secondly, Cardinal Sarah, with Pope Francis’ approval, stated things need to get back to normal with opened churches and public Masses, a clear challenge to countries, states, cities who have draconian rules against churches having public services compared to public riots and the like.
Thirdly, Cardinal Ladria of the CDF has issued some stunning new directives and demanded a heretical priest, Fr. Flannery of Ireland, agree to the Church’s teaching on the male only priesthood, male and female Holy Matrimony and renounce gender ideology, if he wishes to have his suspension from the priesthood removed.
Fourthly, the CDF reiterated that the nature of the Church (ecclesiology) the nature of the priesthood precludes intercommunion in response to a very heterodox document from the heretical German bishops outlining their plans to pursue inter-communion: In a letter to Bishop Georg Bätzing, president of the German bishops’ conference, the CDF said that the proposal did not do justice to the Catholic understanding of the Church, the Eucharist, and Holy Orders.
