Pope Francis & Honorius, Heresy and a Bird's Eyes View or Perspective

With Pope Francis like Pope Honorius now officially teaching heresy we need a bird's eye view or perspective.

When Honorius taught heresy the Holy See wasn't vacant and the Church didn't die.

As in the time of Honorius, the Holy See is not vacant and the Catholic Church is still the Church founded by Jesus Christ that will endure until He returns at the end of time.

Remember that the Church survived the heresy of Honorius and he was not condemned until after his death.

The See didn't become vacant and the Church didn't die.

The Catholic Church survived Honorius and will survive Francis.

Honorius was not even corrected or even challenged by the bishops of his time.

At least, Francis is being challenged and may be corrected.

We must pray that the Dubia Cardinals correct the Pope.

Most importantly, we must hold on to our God given faith, hope and love/charity.

We must pray, do penance, do our daily duty and influence those around us towards God and His Church so they and we may receive the grace to be saved.

We must continue to speak the truth and pray that God reform the Church.

Below is a comparison of Francis and Honorius:

Pope Honorius wrote a document to please the Monothelitist heretics.

He then allowed the heresy to spread and confuse the faithful.

The heretics taught Jesus had only a Divine will.

The Church teaching is that Jesus has both a human will and a Divine will.

Francis wrote the document Amoris Laetitia and a letter to allow adulterer to receive Communion to please those promoting the Kasperite heresy and even this past week promoted it as official teaching.

He then allowed the error to spread and confuse the faithful.

The Kasperites teach that those in adulterous sexually active second "marriages" could continue to commit objective mortal sin and receive Holy Communion without reforming their sinful habits.

The Kasperites argue there might not be a objective mortal sin because subjectively one might not know it is a sin so they may receive Communion.

The Church counters the Kasperite subjective argument by teaching that those committing any objective mortal sins such as adultery or homosexual sexual acts who are subjectively unaware of the gravity of the sins must have their conscience formed.

The sinner is informed of the Catholic moral teachings that adultery or any homosexual sexual acts are gravely sinful.

After their conscience is formed then the person must confess the sins and make a firm resolution not to commit the sins before receiving Communion.

An example, of how absurd is the Kasper proposal is murder.

By their argument, the murderer could continue murdering and receive Communion so long as he didn't objectively know murder was a mortal sin.

Theologian Rowland shows how erroneous is Francis's promotion of the Kasper proposal:

"Kasper's arguments based on alleged Patristic-era antecedents were heavily criticised by eminent Patristic scholars, and... the idea was strongly opposed by both of his papal predecessors." (Catholic Theology, page 196)

Pope Francis's support of the Kasper error has lead him into becoming another Honorius who was a heretic.

The great Catholic theologian Abbott John Chapman in the Dublin Review of 1906 said:

"Unquestionably no Catholic has the right to deny that Honorius was a heretic... a heretic in word, if not in intention... It would no doubt be uncharitable to regard the Pope as a "private heretic"; but his letters, treated as definitions of faith, are obviously and beyond doubt heretical, for in a definition it is the words that matter."

Even more important, Pope Honorius was condemned by a general council and Pope St. Agatho and Pope St. Leo II. Leo said:

"We anathematize the inventors of the new error... and also Honorius, who did not attempt to sanctify this Apostolic Church with the teaching of Apostolic tradition, but by profane treachery permitted it's purity to be polluted." (edwardfeser.blogspot, December 18, 2017, "Denial flows from the Tiber")

Pope Francis will be condemned by a future general council and pope unless he recants.
