Please send me an acknowledgement on receipt of the following…..
I oppose any changes/revisions/new editions of the Lectionary for Mass for Ireland on the following grounds….
Pope Benedict XVI is the Pope.
Pope Benedict XVI retired from the ministerium, that is, the administrative duties of the papal office.
He however never resigned from, never abdicated the munus and therefore is and has always been the one and only Pope since being ‘validly’ elected as Pope.
If the Archbishops and Bishops of Ireland are unable to distinguish the difference between the papal ministerium and the papal munus and unable to tell the difference between semi retiring and fully resigning/abdicating, then it is perhaps best to leave the Lectionary as it is, that is, unchanged.
However there are other reasons to leave the Lectionary as is.
Bergoglio was invalidly elected as Pope because Pope Benedict XVI never renounced the munus, never resigned from/never abdicated.
So in effect the papal administration of the Church has technically been deserted and left in a state of limbo for the last 8 years or so.
Pope Benedict XVI in retiring from the ministerium without appointing someone to take over that role and responsibility, has in effect, cut off, frozen the ministerium of the papal office.
Any administrative changes, directions, guidance, instructions, appointments made to date by/under Bergoglio since his being ‘invalidly’ elected Pope are clearly all invalid.
Until you recognise Pope Benedict XVI as the one and only true Pope and until Pope Benedict XVI comes out of his retreat, until he comes out of his retirement from the duties and responsibilities of the ministerium, then it might be wise to avoid making any new administrative changes, including making any changes to the existing Lectionary for Mass for Ireland, and it might be worth considering undoing and reversing all invalid changes made to date since Pope Benedict XVI retired from the ministerium.
Perhaps Pope Benedict XVI’s retirement from the papal ministerium was simply the Pope ‘obediently’ following divine guidance through the Holy Spirit, an instruction directly from God……..to quietly take one very long spiritual retreat into the wilderness, into the desert.
God works in mysterious ways!
How many have had the grace to experience being given divine guidance/instructions from God and yet have ignored them?
Perhaps it is time to recognise and acknowledge Pope Benedict XVI as the one and only true Pope.
Perhaps it is time to directly ask Pope Benedict XVI the reasons why he retired from the papal ministerium.
Perhaps it is time to ask Pope Benedict XVI when such a retreat from the papal ministerium might end, if ever.
Perhaps it is time to start offering sincere, genuine help, assistance and support directly to Pope Benedict XVI.
Perhaps Pope Benedict XVI has been waiting so patiently in the wilderness for you to come and ask and offer these things.
Seek and Ye Shall Find!
And the Truth Shall Set Ye Free!
God Bless Pope Benedict XVI the one and only true Pope.
God Bless You All!
