Is Pope Francis a Material Heretic or a Formal Heretic and is he about to "Cease to be Pope" by giving Argentina Letter Official Status?

-Updated December 3 , 2017-

Yesterday, Onepeterfive.com's headline said it all:

"Pope's Letter on Argentinian Communion Guidelines for Remarried Given Official Status"

The website said the Argentina letter "has now been added to the official acts of the Apostolic See, conferring official status."

Onepeterfive.com asked Magisterial authority expert Dr. John Joy about the papal act. The website wrote that "Dr. Joy pointed out that adding the letter to the AAS could... potentially" be "removing the possibility that it could be interpreted in a orthodox way... that the unorthodox intrepretation is the official one."

Pope Francis is making it more obvious than ever that he appears to be a material heretic.

If Francis or any pope "formally professed heresy," that is he willfully denies or rejects the revealed teachings of the Catholic Church after he is clearly shown that he is teaching heresy, he would automatically "cease" to be Pope" said Cardinal Raymond Burke.

On December 23, 2016 Cardinal Walter Brandmuller, one of the four Cardinals of the dubia, said:

"Whoever thinks that persistent adultery and reception of Holy Communion are compatible is a heretic and promotes schism."[https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/dubia-cardinal-anyone-who-opens-communion-to-adulterers-is-a-heretic-and-pr]

What Brandmuller declared is a heretical position is Pope Francis's heretical position unless he corrects the Argentina Bishop Msgr. Macin's interpretation of his Argentina letter which he just gave official status.

Rotate Caeli reported:

Argentina Bishop Macin "publicly announced that according to norms send in a letter 6 months ago by Pope Francis... the... divorced and remarried... (by order of the Pope) To Include Them In Full And Sacramental Communion... in the ceremony. At no point was mention made that those people had taken a vow of chastity... "

"In the same way, communion was given to all those mentioned (some 30 couples)." (Rotate Caeli.com, June 13, 2017, "Breaking: Argentinian Bishop Organizes Special Mass to Give Communion to Adulterous Couples, Cites Pope Francis")

It appears true that the 30 divorced and " remarried" couples have not made a vow of chastity and that the Pope didn't stop the adulterous Communions.

Adulterous Communions appears to be the intention of Francis for the Argentina Bishops and the whole Church.

The Pope's Argentina letter said their interpretation of Amoris Leatitia is the only interpretation and has now been given official status by him.

Francis could be on his way to "automatically" ceasing to be Pope if he doesn't back down.

Burke said only members of the College of Cardinals are competent to declare Pope Francis to be in heresy.

If Pope Francis ceased to be Pope because he formally professed heresy and was declared a heretic by the Cardinals then the same discipline or rules that happened when Pope Benedict XVI resigned from the papacy would be followed according to Cardinal Burke.

Burke said there can't be a pastoral situation for the divorced and remarried to receive communion. That pastoral situation "doesn't honor the truth taught by Christ Himself in the Gospel."

Dr. John R. T. Lamont, philosopher and theologian, explains how Francis could cease to be Pope:  

"Some... argue that the dubia and other criticisms of Amoris Laetitia that have been made already suffice as warnings to Pope Francis, and hence that he can now be judged to be guilty of the canonical crime of heresy..."

But for juridical purposes – especially for the very serious purpose of judging a Pope to be a heretic – they do not suffice. The evidence needed for a juridical judgment of such gravity has to take a form that is entirely clear and beyond dispute. A formal warning from a number of members of the College of Cardinals that is then disregarded by the Pope would constitute such evidence."

"The possibility of a Pope being canonically guilty of heresy has long been admitted in the Church. It is acknowledged in the Decretals of Gratian There is no dispute among Catholic theologians on this point – even among theologians like Bellarmine who do not think that a Pope is in fact capable of being a heretic..."

"It is to be hoped that the correction of Pope Francis does not have to proceed this far, and that he will either reject the heresies he has announced or resign his office..."

"Removing him from office against his will would require the election of a new Pope, and would probably leave the Church with Francis as an anti-Pope contesting the authority of the new Pope. If Francis refuses to renounce either his heresy or his office, however, this situation will just have to be faced."

Pray a Our Father now that the Dubia Cardinals issue the correction.
