Cardinaliate excommunication looming?

A hat-tip to Brother Alexis Bugnolo at The Franciscan Archive for a little Tweet that caused me to look for the whole quote from the Council of Trent: Session XIII, Canon XI which states:

CANON XI.-lf any one saith, that faith alone is a sufficient preparation for receiving the sacrament of the most holy Eucharist; let him be anathema. And for fear lest so great a sacrament may be received unworthily, and so unto death and condemnation, this holy Synod ordains and declares, that sacramental confession, when a confessor may be had, is of necessity to be made beforehand, by those whose conscience is burthened with mortal sin, how contrite even soever they may think themselves. But if any one shall presume to teach, preach, or obstinately to assert, or even in public disputation to defend the contrary, he shall be thereupon excommunicated.

To those such as Cardinal Kasper, Cardinal Marx, Cardinal Wuerl who speaks of the "pastoral application of the doctrine" and to the others who hijacked the Synod on the Family by focusing on Holy Communion for those divorced and in civil marriages with no decree of nullity and people suffering from same-sex attraction who act out the urges, how do you expect to get around this?

Will our Holy Father, Pope Francis, uphold the Council of Trent and St. John Paul's document Familiaris Consortio, at least for now still up on the Vatican's web page; or will he flirt with danger by succumbing to the false mercy and lies of those Cardinals who have threatened the unity of the Church and scandalised the "little ones?"

Yet, these Cardinals are in "full communion."

No! These guys, along with Bergoglio, are about as far removed from the Catholic truths and the directives of Trent as were the Protestants, at that time. These phonies are drunk on the Modernist cocktail, and therefore absolutely despise clarity on matters of faith, morals and discipline, a clarity that vanished with Vatican II. I shall never forget when I first picked up and began reading those sixteen pollyana puff pieces known as the Documents of Vatican II. I kept looking at the end of the documents trying, desperately, to find some canons to provide resolution to the theological tension and ambiguity, embedded in the documents. Kasper, Marx and Wuerl, all, I believe, signed and swore to uphold the oath against Modernism, which was suppressed, in 1967. Like a lot of clergy this oath meant nothing to them. I guess the Spell of Vatican II made the oath null and void. The babble fare, of the Vatican II documents, has become a "Newer Testament", a virtual blank cheque, to justify any novel heterodoxis or heteropraxis. The fifty years since the council amount to a neo-tradition that replaces the 1900 year tradition that brought us into the 1960s. And even this recent tradition (Familiaris Consortio for example) can be ignored. Trent is simply not on the radar of these prostituted prelates. Their shape shifting Modernist modus operandi, modus legendi and modus loquendi, will never permit it.

There's an answer we all must pray for an attempt to our best ability and stations of life: both pray for and call for the deposition of Antipope Bergoglio and his pro-homo co-conspirators in his invalid election. Finally all should forswear obedience to such an antipope until his anti-papacy grinds to a halt!
