Archbishop Viganò issues an Apologia in his defense

Editor’s Note: The Archbishop has written his own apologia pro sua vita, which is now available in English, through the linked image above.

What he says therein is more completely an exposition of his doctrinal and juridical position than in other documents.

Essentially, however, he has not modified or changed anything of what he has said in the past. He holds the Catholic position, which so many others, including myself hold as the only possible approach a Catholic can have to these subjects.

But he does take one step which he has not taken before.

He now asks his brother Bishops to hear his case and he formally accuses Pope Francis of being a usurper, heretic and schismatic.

But he continues to omit the necessary juridical specification of calling on a specific tribunal to hear this appeal.

Yes, he has appealed ostensibly to all the Bishops of the world. But juridically such an appeal means nothing unless he addresses a specific body, such as a provincial council or a general council.

If he ever realizes that in failing to do this he is making meaningless all he has said and is serving up all that his enemies need to condemn him, he will make a formal canonical appeal to the Bishops of the Province of Rome to convoke a Provincial Council, on the grounds mentioned in the Sutri Initiative. For that is the only body which can convene without Pope Francis’s permission and which can judge the accusation of usurpation of the Papacy.

Let’s pray for the Archbishop that he take that last but decisive step!

With Globalist Censorship growing daily, No one will ever know about the above article, if you do not share it.

  1. Archbishop Viganò is surely anything but ignorant of the way the Church works – both in theory and in practice.

    What he writes in public probably has at least twofold purposes of stating his case and eliciting responses from possibly favourable Bishops.

    However, I note that you mentioned that you had not been able to find his email address, which could make it difficult for Bishops wanting to contact him to do so.

    He has a Twitter / X account in his name, but since I left that platform almost five years ago, I don’t know how many of his less limelight attracting and less media and tech savvy Bishops use that platform.

    I do hope that he is communicating privately with specific Bishops via more secure channels.

  2. It is astounding the lengths to which Big Trad will go to ignore or air brush out of history any mention of The Sutri Initiative. For example, try posting a perfectly tame comment at the story reporting Vigano’s excommunication at lifesitenews , and include the term “Sutri Initiative” anywhere in the comment. Your comment will not be published.

    It’s like a scene out of one of those old black and white vampire movies when the protagonist holds aloft a crucifix and points it at Bella Lugosi.

    1. This morning Alex Jones on or rather I saw it on Mike Adams, but it was the July 8, 2024 Infowars program, the story of Cardinal Vigano and Pope Francis was discussed by Alex Jones and his interviewee, Mike McCormick, in some detail including a meeting with Biden and a cardinal whose name I neglected
      to write down, but a Cardinal McCarrick was mentioned, I forget who else, involving some years ago, involving a discussion of the Vatican as a place of trafficking of children, the whole thing incredibly shocking to me…..I’m sure you can find it. It was during the third hour of today’s (July 8th. 2024) infowars program, with Alex Jones and Mike McCormick.
