Pope Benedict XVI - Requiescat In Pace

The Holy Father - the real one - passed away at 9:34 Italian time this morning.  We pray now for his immortal soul and the Church Militant that he left behind.  I believe it was in 2007 when he released his moto propitio that made clear that the Tridentine Mass was a valid rite and that no prelate could prevent its celebration.  The current occupant of the chair of Peter undid that, as well as unleashing immeasurable harm against Holy Mother Church.

Regrettably Benedict shared some responsibility for that harm, with his extremely irregular "resignation".  When he proffered that, he paved away for the destructive debacle known as Francis' papacy.  Some are now lamenting that Francis is now unrestrained.  I am not certain how he was ever restrained, but only time will tell.

In the meantime, we pray for the eternal repose of Benedict XVI and for the return of a true pope.  At this time, owing to all the signs that Francis' election was rigged and therefore canonically invalid, I am not certain that we have a true pope at this time.  Pray for the One True Church, now rudderless.
