Cardinal Re Elected Dean Of The Cardinals

Francis approved Cardinal Giovanni Battista Re's, 85, election as Dean of the College of Cardinals and Cardinal Leonardo Sandri, 76, as Vice-Dean.

Re was expected to be elected because he was the Vice-Dean. He replaces Cardinal Angelo Sodano whom Francis sacked last month.

If the see of Peter becomes vacant in the next five years, the Argentinian Sandri will preside over the conclave, not Re, since Re is no longer an elector.

Further, I didn't make any implication about Fr. Hesse's honesty. I'll gladly give him the benefit of the doubt and assume he's a truthful man who believed everything he said.

He might also believe his relative was truthful as well. For that matter, his relative might even genuinely believe everything they said. However, that does not prove anything the relative said was, in fact, true.

His relative might be rational yet factually incorrect. His relative might be neurotic and prone to delusions. We live in a world filled with thousands of people who genuinely believe they were abducted by extraterrestrials. There are thousands of others who genuinely believe they are extraterrestrials.

Father Hesse wasn't a first-hand witness to the information he's relating. It's second-hand at best. His own personal honesty is no guarantee for his relative's honesty, rationality or accuracy.
Ultraviolent, you sound like an attorney at law who has practiced so long and who has otherwise such a shallow grasp on the history of literature and philosophy, that you actually think that the criteria of a law court is the criteria of truth. I pity you, but I cannot correct you. You would have to read a lot of books to learn otherwise.
Rash judgement is also a sin, if you can remember your childhood catechism.
"that you actually think that the criteria of a law court is the criteria of truth"

Wrong. You're falsely suggesting that by weighing a statement against a legal standard of truth, it provides my only frame of reference for what is true. That's a fallacy of composition.

I certainly have other standards. The Gospels, for one. The teachings of the Church for another.

When it comes to ascertaining truth, legal standards are higher than the journalistic ones you mistakenly ascribed to me.

Courts of law are, in principle, based on administering justice based on determining the truth through evidence and reason. And seeking the truth is, what we as good Catholics, should be doing.

"Rash judgement is also a sin..."

Ironic criticism coming from a man who's complaining because I didn't immediately take hearsay at face value. .
"was confirmed by the late and wonderful Austrian priest Fr Gregor Hesse on one of his videos where he states clearly being told by a relative about the matter."

...and today we learn why (as an overwhelming rule) hearsay is inadmissable in court. It certainly is inadmissable under these conditions: "Elvis is still alive because my relative told me they saw him somewhere." Bonus laffs for …More

If you knew anything about Canon Hesse, you would know that your criticism is absurd. The criterion of truth is not that of journalism, it is that of Christ, believe an honest priest 10000000 times more than a dishonest man.
My commentary on Cardinal Re's promotion and what it might mean fromrome.info/…/did-bergoglio-j…
The direct connection of Rampolla to the Freemasons was confirmed by the late and wonderful Austrian priest Fr Gregor Hesse on one of his videos where he states clearly being told by a relative about the matter.
The veto of Austrian Emperor saved the church.
It may be due to the severing of all lay control on the church that the papacy has landed itself now in such chaos.
What he heard is simply what the historical records confirm. Though we must understand that the evidence about episcopal lineages was not well known before the Council, it has only been recently brought out of the obscurity of a very unknown corner of researchers, by a famous historian in Florida who had made it his life's work to make it available to the general public.
I published this three days ago, it is a timely read.... fromrome.info/…/the-house-of-ca…

Viganò said that Cardinal Sandri, who could run the next conclave, was involved in covering up the McCarrick abuses: "Leonardo Sandri as Substitute of the Secretariat of State, knew in every detail the situation regarding Cardinal McCarrick."

While Cardinal Re is not an elector and does not participate in the conclave, he presides over and preaches at the Pope’s funeral (in the case of a vacancy through the death of the Roman Pontiff). He also chairs the General Congregations prior to the conclave.

The Dean also convokes the Conclave, that is his most important duty.
