I WONDER IF THEY'RE GONNA NAME THIS NEW NORM AFTER APURON

Pope issues motu proprio on removal of Bishops

(Vatican Radio) In a new Apostolic Letter, issued motu proprio, Pope Francis has established new norms providing for the removal of Bishops (or those equivalent to them in Canon Law) from their offices in cases where they have “through negligance, committed or omitted acts that have caused grave harm to others, either with regard to physical persons, or with regard to the community itself.”

P.S.  An Apostolic Letter, issues motu proprio, is a document of the highest papal authority.

EWTN: A document issued Motu Proprio is from the Pope on his own initiative, and not in response to a request or at the initiative of others. Its legal determinations carry the full force of papal authority, though it does not derogate from existing laws unless specifically stated. It can be any category of document.

  1. Before the five "Apuron articles", the Pope says:

    «With the present letter I want to clarify that the mentioned "serious causes" include Bishops' negligence particularly in case of sexual abuses on minors and vulnerable adults, as of the m.p. Sacramentorum Sanctitatis Tutela by John Paul II and extended by Benedict XVI...»

    Ah yes — "Apuron's Law Regarding the Removal of Negligent Bishops" has a nice ring to it …

  3. Screwtape: Wormwoooooood!
    Wormwood: Here I am uncle!
    Screwtape: Please enter....sit....no, on the floor where you belong with all your other siblings and siblings to be.
    Wormwood: Is it time uncle? shall we begin rejoicing our victory?
    Screwtape: Not just yet Wormwood, however word has reached my ear of something quite interesting and likely in our favor...Deathea has hinted of a particular being of certain status in the Holy House of an 'unexpected surprise', hehehe, a delightful one I must say.
    Wormwood: Yes uncle, we've been expecting his presence...oops. Though I’m afraid our efforts are being stymied by the recent directive by that Holy Man of Peter. We are making every effort however to secure the tiny island parishes with our forged liturgy, the thing they call the Sacrifice of the Mass…ugggg.
    Screwtape: You mention that word one more time Wormwood I will personally put you on that table your Spanish friends prance around. Anycase make sure our ‘Floor below’ is spotless, make room for another one of theirs….oooohhh, that holy one called St. John Crisostom stated so true…Our floor is truly paved with the skulls of priests, and Bishop heads as lamp post!.....hehehehehehehhahahahaahhaha! Oh Wormwood, our father below will be so proud of you!

  4. U Matuna says Apuron is off-island and thus postponed the Diaconate Ordination until further notice. Some say he is on-island? Which is it? Either way his off-island trip must be pretty urgent and important.

  5. Wanna bet that this Papal direction too bro tony will ignore and attack? He will accuse Pope Francis as a liar and making "calumnious conspiracy attacks" and is a pawn of Tim Rohr! It seems that anyone who now tries to speak the truth and reveals past abuse is an "enemy of the Church." Soon the only ones left are the neos who prop him up even when they know that this bishop was not job-certified, and is crashing the ferry into the rocks!

    2. More likely they'll say it's just persecution from the Vatican--maybe with the assertion that the Pope is a false prophet. They are de facto Protestants, after all.

  6. The Papal letter is out. But, what are the procedural guidelines for effective removal and by whom it what body appointed by whom?

  7. Now that the Papal letter is out, what procedural guidelines will be used, by whom, or by what body, and appointed by whom?

  8. Saw this on Diana's site: Take note on what she wrote in her last sentence. Sounds like an admission of guilt to me.

    Dear Anonymous at 1:05 am,

    It was not their voices that spoke. Mass graves of bodies were found, and the Jewish prisoners in the concentration camps came forward. Furthermore, the crime was not decades old.

  9. Sometimes the best advice to give really stupid people like Diana is to shut the hell up. ^ ^

    But then again, all the stupid responses have only strengthened our cases.

    So keep on keeping on Diana et all.

    1. Who cares? Although he is not a bad guy, we do not need more presbyters. But I would gladly welcome Fr JASON back if the primate presbyter promised to leave.

  11. Father Jason who? So many of these seminarians are ordained as presbyters, then we never hear of them after we were asked to support their studies and their posh way of life at rms. No accountability to sponsors and the local Catholics whatsoever. We feel used and abused, lied to and given false hopes. Somehow we feel that the rms masters only force the production of factory-cloned automatons who will do their bidding. Why are we even entertaining the support of these scams they conveniently label as Annual Appeal? Stop the Money, Shun the trash bags.
