Br. Buguolo has "been Tasked by Bishop Gracida to Contact one of" the "40 to 70" Silent Fearful Anti-Francis Cardinals & Brother asks for Volunteers

One of the great heroes in the present crisis canon law expert Br. Alexis Bugnolo said in the comment section of the Catholic Monitor that he has "been tasked by Bishop [Rene] Gracida to contact one of" the "40 to 70" silent fearful anti-Francis Cardinals who are silent because of their petrifying fear of Francis and his Vatican as reported by Vatican Expert Edward Pentin.

Br. Buguolo is asking for lobbying "volunteers [for] a team to do this work":

"The intelligence gathered by Fred here is an action item for the whole Church. WE NEED TO IDENTIFY AND CONTACT these 40 to 70 Cardinals and get them to call an imperfect Synod."

"I have been tasked by Bishop Gracida to contact one of them, I would appreciate volunteers forming a team to do this work. Blogging is not going to solve the process, we must move to lobbying. I would especially invite experts in this practice who realize that getting the problems solved at the Vatican is the best strategy for human salvation right now."

I would, also, like to encourage Br. Bugnolo and others to contact Fr. David Nix. He has publicly stated on his blog that he knows one cardinal who probably supports Bishop Gracida's Open Letter to the Cardinals as well as possibly Brother's in-depth thesis "Munus and Ministerium: A Textual Study of their Usage in the Code of Canon Law" on the Pope Benedict XVI's resignation. I exchanged emails with him. I cannot speak on what our email exchange was about because he has not given me permission, but it might be important for someone besides me to contact him. Fr. Nix's blog is padreperegrino.org.

Moreover, the following two commenters in the comment section of the Catholic Monitor gave more excellent "action items" for Catholic lay people, bloggers and journalists:

Why not simply write an old-fashioned letter to ALL cardinals as all bishops as well with a clear message/question demanding to act?
Plus publishing the same letter as an open letter, asking as many as possible Catholic sites, blogs and papers (even those which justly can be considered with small "c") in many languages, or at least world languages as English, Spanish, French, Italian, German, Portugees, Latin too...

In That way they should be able to see that there is a certain, nay, a GREAT amount of the Faithfull Catholics in the world who really cares. And will support them in everything they need.

I suggest that also all online participants in this supports each others with simply putting the links bellow their article (open letter) of all others who are doing the same.

That will be a lot of work indeed, and requires a good coordinating, but with God's grace we can do that!

Investigative journalists should also deepen and intensify their work and expose the truth

Br. Bugnolo and the two commenters gave their "action items" in the following post:

Is "Petrifying" Fear Keeping Francis, the King of the "Fear Factor," in Power?


Today, Crux's headline was "Church must deal with ‘fear factor’ keeping bad bishops in power." The pro-gay website said:

“'Fear' is a word you see a lot in the 60-page report on Bishop Michael Bransfield, which was published on Monday by the Washington Post."

"... The report is a tale of an often-intoxicated predator, freely spending the diocese’s money, with no check on his power."

"This behavior, according to the report, even predated Bransfield’s time as a bishop, with reports of misbehavior going back to his time at Washington’s Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, where he spent most of his priestly career before his episcopal appointment."

"Witnesses reported sexual comments, unwanted touching, and other harassment and abuse throughout Bransfield’s career, but no one said anything.'

"... Why? Fear."
"Priests and seminarians knew their careers were in the hands of the bishop; this is especially true of seminarians, who could easily be denied ordination if they reported Bransfield’s behavior."

"... In other words, it’s easy for a bad bishop to use fear to act with impunity, as we have seen not only in the career of Bransfield, but also with that of ex-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick - a co-consecrator of Bransfield - and the deceased founder of the Legion of Christ, Father Marcial Maciel Degollado. (coincidentally, the Legion just published its own report on sexual abuse within their religious congregation.)"

"More troubling is the story behind the publication of the report. Although written in February, it has not been officially released by the Church. Officials in Wheeling-Charleston and Baltimore have told the press the report is the property of the Holy See, and not theirs to release - and according to the Post, have even refused to give it to civil authorities that have requested the document"

Why would Francis's Vatican not release the "fear factor" report?

Might it be because Francis is the king of the "fear factor"?

Remember when Vatican Expert Edward Pentin reported "40 to 70 Cardinals" are silent because of their petrifying fear of Francis and his Vatican. Pentin said:

"I was told earlier this year by a senior prelate that there is great concern by a good number of Cardinals about this pontificate and I also heard from another well placed source that... their estimate of about 40 to 70 Cardinals want a change, they are very concern, but they are simply petrified about speaking out."
(Fr. Z's Blog, November 4, 2017, "Edward Pentin's talk at the Catholic Identity Conference 2017," Quote from video in post)

That these Cardinals by their silence appear willing to betray their most cherish beliefs is the conclusion one gets from the video.

Even one source told Pentin that they know that they will have to answer to God on why they were silent during this crisis.

Fr. Z speaking of the video and Pentin said:

"Edward Pentin – at present the best English language Vaticanista in Rome – gave a talk at a conference."

"There is a video of his talk. You might give it a shot."

"Pentin, a sharp and reasonable guy, touches on a lot of sore points."

"We have to stop blowing happy gas all around, as if everything in the Church was great. It’s not great."



These Cardinals that Pentin speaks of in the video by their silence appear willing to betray their most cherish beliefs.

In fact, Francis appointed Cardinal Blase Cupich said that bishops and Catholics must betray their most "cherished beliefs" which he associates with "and long-held biases" to follow Francis:

“It is our job to take up that discernment. It takes time. It involves discipline. Most importantly it requires that we be prepared to let go of cherished beliefs and long-held biases.” (November 2, 2017, LifeSiteNews, "Catholics must let go of ‘cherished beliefs’ to ‘discern’ like Pope Francis: U.S. Cardinal" [https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/catholics-must-let-go-of-cherished-beliefs-to-discern-like-pope-francis-u.s])

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church as well as the Triumph of the Kingdom of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary and for the courageous Br. Bugnolo's important work and especially for his personal safety.

I have said it before on this blog, and I'll say it again, an imperfect synod is a great idea. However, without the protection of civil governments and their military muscle backing up the results of such a synod, it doesn't have a prayer of succeeding.

Regarding the suggestion to write an old fashioned letter to all the Cardinals, that is doable. But I think it would have no effect, unless we can muster a good number of names of canonists, theologians, clergy and even perhaps some bishops as signatories.

I think I can write an acceptible letter, but it would then have to be discussed among the potential signatories, becuase you wont get a good number to sign, unless they all agree. And I am not yet sure there are that many who understand Canon 332.2 or the principles of Divine and Apostolic Right in a time of necessity.

So to gather the Cardinals to do something, and not just the Cardinals, because the Bishops actually have a stronger right, since it is only necessary that one Cardinal declare the See impeded and ask the College of Bishops to intervene, we do not actually have to convince 40 to 70 Cardinals.

But it must be done in such a way as to avoid any possible canonical counter-attack on the grounds of schism, heresy or the violation of canon law, because as you can see from the cases of the Scottish Hermits and Father Minutella and Dr. Galat, the Bergoglians are very quick on the excommunication tactic to destroy reputations and prevent actions of true Catholic dialogue.

So the first step would be a general petition, such as,

I the undersigned believe that it is now opportune that the Cardinals and/or Bishops discuss the problems in the Church which are emanating from the Vatican, for there, there is a man who was elected pope, who still comports himself as a pope but does not govern the Church since he renounced the ministry, and then there is another man who was elected pope, who does not comport himself as a pope but attacks the Deposit of the Faith.

Such a statement should be acceptable to all Catholics, and avoid any canonical reprisals. From the list of who signs we assemble a list of the experts who agree on that first step and then prepare a formal letter to all the Cardinals and then to all the Bishops.

Sincerely in Saint Francis,repairer of Christ's Church,

Br. Alexis Bugnolo

Mary, have Faith!
Don't say: it doesn't have a prayer of succeeding.
How can any of us Catholics(!) be so desperate, when we KNOW that our own military muscle who is always backing us, is the greatest one on Heaven en Earth that have ever existed. The countless Legions of God's Angels and the Saints! Plus all good and brave knights, the warriors of the Church Militant of which we, you as me as many others, here and now are a significant, an important part. So then, let's our Rosary prayers be our muscles instead of discouragement.

An approach that precludes "any possible canonical counter-attack"? No such thing. Bergoglianism is lawlessness, canonical and otherwise. We must honor God and legitimate authority because it is right to do so, period. The thought that there exists some limit to the Modernist faction's visceral disrespect for all that is true or just amounts to nothing, in the final analysis, other than good old-fashioned self-deception.

Justina,

In speaking of a canonical counter attack, I do not mean to imply that Bergoglio has any authority, or that heretics have any authority, but rather I mean to recognize that pyschological warfare is nevertheless effective. Because for those who do not yet understand that Bergoglio is not the pope, the announcement of excommunications of those who oppose him would be accepted by the masses. And since the goal is the salvation of all souls, not just resisting Bergoglio, these things must be considered. Also, if those who need employment and who could lose employment or reputations are asked to resist, I think it is only right to offer a path which protects them. If you do not want to protect your allies, you soon shall have none. Blovating in any other direction is useless.
