Francis Speaks About His Resignation

Pope Francis spoke in his homily (May 15) about St Paul going to Jerusalem (Acts 20, 17-27).

Francis applied the passage to himself, “When I read this, I think about myself because I am a bishop and I must say goodbye. I ask God for the grace to be able to say goodbye like this.”

Francis added that in the examination of conscience "I will not emerge victorious as Paul".

But Francis takes this easy, since "the Lord is good, he is merciful".

@Atanasio de Trento. No, Scripture does not say that God chooses the pope. Your own Protestant interpretation of Scripture says it. Let's not confuse the Traditional interpretation of texts with your own imagination.

The Apostles were chosen by Christ, and the successor to Judas was chosen with the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. There is nothing in Scripture, however, that indicates that … More

Saint John Eudes said that when God is angry with His people, He sends them bad priests as a chastisement.
Here is what he wrote in his book, The Priest, His Dignity and Obligations:
“The most evident mark of God’s anger and the most terrible castigation He can inflict upon the world are manifested when He permits His people to fall into the hands of clergy who are priests more in name than in …

Being Subject to Authorities
13 Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.

Wow what a lot of assumption going on here.... He was really saying he will resign to the notion of women priests..... they left out that part!

For a person who makes as many posts as you do on a daily basis and who spends as much time as you do at this Catholic website, one would think you knew the Catholic faith better than you do.

Bergoglio has even said that he did not even remember if they had made him make a vow: " I do not know if they made me swear something, I do not remember " That is, Bergoglio did not assume the commitment of fidelity to the papacy before God to defend the Church and teach Catholic doctrine. www.youtube.com/watch

When the head of the Church is usurped, the entire building threatens to collapse.
The Church has had several anti-popes and Bergoglio is one of them.

Hearty Agreement with Pope Francis, we all hope that he will know when the Holy Spirit wants him to resign.

Those texts have never been interpreted to mean that God chooses every pope.

Bergoglio did talk about resignation before, but he's never taken a holiday. Although with one lung some sort of demonic energy keeps this servant of the Cult of Man going.

Snaha Františka Bergoglia spojovat Katolickou církev s protestantskými denominacemi je jistě hřích a to z důvodu nepřítomnosti Krista v chlebu a víně protestantské večeře Páně a z důvodu nevíry protestantů v Neposkvrněnost (bezhříšnost) Panny Marie. Mnohé protestantské denominace dnes žehnají homosexuálním sňatkům, což je ohavnost a plné odpadnutí od Krista. Luther byl vzteklý opilec, vrah … More

He will never resign. He is way too power hungry.

Francis Bergoglio has done a lot to undermine the Magisterium and Papal office. He is not the pope. The pope is Benedict XVI. František Bergoglio udělal mnoho, aby podkopal (zničil) magisterium a papežský úřad. On není papež. Papežem zůstává Benedikt XVI. (Benediktova rezignace je dle církevního práva NEPLATNÁ)
Prayhard
When the legal successor is assured that someone with as great a hatred for Catholic teaching, he might resign. He's done a lot to undermine the Magisterium and Papal office, but he has only one lung.

Another proof of the trivialization and attack of the papacy that comes directly from Bergoglio. He erroneously teaches that it is no longer God who chooses the pope until he dies, but man is the one who chooses even when he wants to "serve" God.
