Infallible Statement of Pope John Paul II against Women's Ordination and supporting clarification

"Wherefore, in order that all doubt may be removed regarding a matter of great importance, a matter which pertains to the Church’s divine constitution itself, in virtue of my ministry of confirming the brethren (cf. Lk 22:32) I declare that the Church has no authority whatsoever to confer priestly ordination on women and that this judgment is to be definitively held by all the Church’s faithful." - Pope John Paul II, Ordinatio Sacerdotalis, 22 May 1994

But is it 'inFrancisible'?!!! Clearly a level considered higher by Bergoglio than 'infallible'. After all, if Bergoglio can erase JPII's name, and philosophical center, from virtually every institution connected with him in the Vatican, why should an 'infallible statement', made by him, or any other predecessor, be any less prone to erasure? The questions, of course, are rhetorical.

Did he let the Church England know this? 🤔

@Live Mike Was there not an ecclesiastical commission a few years back that set forth why women could not be deacons? I believe chipping away at the role of altar boy, lector, etc. and the fuzziness about what constituted minor orders has contributed to this looming fiasco.
