Member of Vatican's Female Deacons Commission, Awarded by Ratzinger, Wants Female Cardinals and …

“Why not include women in the college of cardinals?”, Anne-Marie Pelletier, 74, a French member of the Vatican female deacons commission, told La-Croix.com (June 25). She believes that women should…

Since February 2013, Francis is the pope and this woman was almost certainly awarded by FRANCIS, not by Ratzinger ...
It is a mockery of Ratzinger’s oeuvre to award such a German with the prize named after him.

Benedict XVI has duped many Catholics over the years. He was JPII's right hand man who did nothing with peodophile priests, he was one of the leaders of the modernist VII Council, he supports and promotes ecuminism (all religions are same , we worship the same God), forced to step down because of Vatican Bank scandal and scandals with predatory priests, says Jews should not be converted, …More

I could go on and on about this man. He is a modernist to the core. Don't fall for his neo-con persona.

Yet he's still the pope and Francis isn't. We must respect that.

Sorry, Jimmy. Wishful thinking isn't going to change Benedict's own statements regarding his resignation.

@Ultraviolet B16's statements don't matter, his adherence to Canon law does. And he didn't resign the office of pope. Which is why he is still calling himself pope. He resigned the ministry. He is a clever modernist German, not unlike those trying to ruin the Church now, except he actually thinks he is helping.

"B16's statements don't matter"

I'm certain if B16 was insisting he'd been ousted unfairly, you wouldn't be claiming that. ;-)

Actually, they DO matter. They matter very much because Benedict repudiates the claims of his supporters who insist he's still Pope..

Benedict's own words show the following:
1.) Benedict resigned the Papacy.
2.) Benedict wanted to resign the Papacy.

Benedict's own words show the following:
1.) Benedict resigned the Papacy.
2.) Benedict wanted to resign the Papacy.
3.) Benedict freely chose to resign the Papacy.
4.) from 1.) to 3.) Benedict doesn't want to be Pope.
5 .) Benedict isn't Pope.
More critically, they show
6.) Benedict recognizes someone else IS Pope.

"his adherence to Canon law does. And he didn't resign the office of pope. He resigned the ministry."

...and nowhere in Canon Law is a resignation of the office vs. the ministry either stipulated or required. A resignation of the Papacy is just that and includes all aspects thereof..

Canon Law 332.2 requires only two criteria for a valid resignation 1.) free will and 2.) proper manifestation of the resignation itself.

Benedict's own repeated statements cover both 1.) and 2.). Benedict's fan-boys might dearly wish otherwise, but Canon Law is not on their side.

...and we've had this discussion before.

Benedict -did- resign the office of Pope. He said he did. He even explicitly used the word "office" in his last general audience in describing his resignation.

As I've said before, the only resignation Benedict's fan-boys will ever accept is the one he didn't make. But Benedict was far more clever.

His own resignation letter stated he resigned "in such a way" a new Pope must be elected.

Benedict included that as a legal catch-all to include every and all possible necessary criteria for that to occur.

Simply put, Benedict's use of the phrase means his resignation includes whatever criteria Benedict's fan-boys could possibly argue (or even invent outright) is conceivably necessary for a Pope to resign and for a new Pope to be elected in his place.

If that means a Pope has to resign the office for a new Pope to be elected, Benedict has already said he resigns "in such a way" that must happen.

If that means a Pope has to resign the ministry for a new Pope to be elected, Benedict has already said he resigns "in such a way" that must happen.

If that means a Pope has to resign the title, for a new Pope to be elected, Benedict has already said he resigns "in such a way" that must happen.

Whatever is required for a new Pope to be elected, Benedict said he resigned "in such a way" (his words) for that to occur.

"Which is why he is still calling himself pope."

Technically, he adopted the title Pope Emeritus. As I've pointed out before, retired military officers routinely use the rank they earned while they still had command. Nobody ever confuses or insists those officers are still in charge after their retirement, regardless of the courtesy title. This is a fabricated justification that appears only here, only now, and only with Benedict.

Worse, Benedict is NOT calling himself the pope.

In the article I linked, Benedict himself made a clear and explicit distinction between himself and The Pope. This shows he isn't The Pope and knows he isn't The Pope.

So yes, it's fair to say Benedict's statements matter very much.

@Jmy1975.

No, BXVI was not obligated to follow canon law. The authority of canon law is derived from the authority of the pope. Pope BXVI had the authority to use other language.
Jmy1975
@Dr Bobus canon 188 and 332 would say differently.
Dr Bobus
Are you assuming that his resignation was not made freely?
Dr Bobus
(Ratzinger) supports and promotes ecuminism (all religions are same , we worship the same God)

Ratzinger does not think all religions are the same. He said formally as Prefect of that the origin of the Church is the Eucharist. Protestants, therefore, do not have the same religion as Catholics and Orthodox.

You imply Benedict aproved the granting of the prize to this woman, why? Do you believe everything that comes out of the drug-fuelled orgy organizers' mouths? Do you believe everything the Sankt Hallen mafia says? Do you believe...... ETC. Well, I don't!!!

B16 is our pope but he's not a good one. He's a modernist.
