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.

@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 bishops are directly chosen by the Holy Spirit.

The Veni Sancte Spiritus is sung by conclave electors, but there is no guarantee that the man chosen as pope is the choice of the Holy Spirit. Anyone who says otherwise is guilty of Presumption, which is a sin against the virtue of Hope.

I do think, however, that through the election of Francis it has been made evident that the Neo Con Church of JPII (Catholic moral doctrine with Protestant liturgy) cannot stand.

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 …

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 deed, priests who practice the cruelty of ravening wolves rather than charity and affection of devoted shepherds ...
“When God permits such things, it is a very positive proof that He is thoroughly angry with His people, and is visiting His most dreadful anger upon them. That is why He cries unceasingly to Christians, ‘Return O ye revolting children ... and I will give you pastors according to My own heart’. (Jer. 3:14,15) Thus, irregularities in the lives of priests constitute a scourge upon the people in consequence of sin.”

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!

The passage you are referring to reads:
Douay-Rheims Bible
LET every soul be subject to higher powers: for there is no power but from God: and those that are, are ordained of God.

How then can terrible murderers such as Pol Pot, Castro, Hitler, Stalin etc be chosen by God?

What you fail to understand is that “ordained of God” does not mean that leaders such as Castro, Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot etc. will be good and honorable leaders. Evil things can and do happen regularly and often. Furthermore, evil and scandalous events and evil people can become ordained ministers within the Catholic Church. The examples are too numerous to list. Again, what you fail to understand is that although God permits these evil things to occur, He does NOT actively will them to happen.
--------------------

Permissive Will
The Permissive Will of God is that will which God does not decree to occur, nor is it His will since it is not in accordance with His Law. God's permissive will is His will to permit sin/evil to occur. God allows man to rebel against Him, and in this God permits people to do such things as lie, steal, or even to murder His Son.

Jer. 19:5, "and have built the high places of Baal to burn their sons in the fire as burnt offerings to Baal, a thing which I never commanded or spoke of, nor did it ever enter My mind."
Luke 8:32, "Now there was a herd of many swine feeding there on the mountain; and the demons entreated Him to permit them to enter the swine. And He gave them permission."
Rom. 1:21-23, "For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God, or give thanks; but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures."

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.

Dr Bobus That is, you believe that man's will prevails over the will of God when the Bible itself says that even rulers are chosen by God. Even Judas the Betrayer and the False Prophet.

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.

The Church has never taught that God chooses the 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.

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)

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.
