BREAKING: Pope Emeritus Benedict Declares "Continuity" with Pope Francis' Pontificate

The letter
Take another punch in the gut, faithful Catholics.

From VaticanNews:
Pope Benedict XVI: there is continuity with Pope Francis' Pontificate 
Pope Benedict wanted to give a contribution, very significant as always, to the interior spiritual unity of the two pontificates. Thus Msgr Dario Edoardo Viganò characterizes the letter sent to him by the Pope Emeritus. 
By Sr Bernadette Mary Reis, fsp 
Regarding the magisterium of Pope Francis, Benedict writes that “there is interior unity” between his pontificate and that of Pope Francis, his successor. Pope Benedict’s letter was presented by its recipient, Msgr Dario Edoardo Viganò, during a press conference presenting “The Theology of Pope Francis,” a series of 11 books written by 11 different authors, and published by Libreria Editrice Vaticana. The news conference was held in Sala Marconi in the headquarters of Vatican Media. 
Pope Benedict applauds publication of the series

“I applaud this initiative,” writes Pope Benedict. “It contradicts the foolish prejudice of those who see Pope Francis as someone who lacks a particular theological and philosophical formation, while I would have been solely a theorist of theology with little understanding of the concrete lives of today’s Christian. 
Vatican releases series on the theology of Pope Francis 
Pope Francis has profound theological formation 
The Pope Emeritus writes that he is grateful to have received the set of 11 books edited by Roberto Repole, President of the Italian Theological Association. Pope Benedict XVI adds that these volumes “reasonably demonstrate that Pope Francis is a man with profound philosophical and theological formation and are helpful to see the interior continuity between the two pontificates, even with all the differences in style and temperament.”Language editions in the works. 
During the event, Br Giulio Cesareo, OFM, the recently-appointed head of Libreria Editrice Vaticana, explained that contracts have already been signed for the English, Spanish, French, Portoghese, Polish and Romanian editions of the series, and that further negotiations are in process with publishers throughout the world.

  2. No, someone is lying. This is not at all believable. When will the dumbed-down masses get their heads out of the sand? We have a devil at the helm in Rome and minions of devils in his court. Wake up.

  3. Well, no one can know for sure, but here's my depressing take: Benedict himself coined or popularized the term "hermeneutic of continuity" in a similar context. He just can't see things any other way. I think it's as simple as that.

    1. Have you forgotten Cardinal Ratzinger's guardianship as Head of the CDF all during Pope JP11'as Pontificate? He knows the difference between heresy and the 'hermeneutic of
      continuity'. It is just as simple as that.

  4. So is there "interior unity" about communion for the divorced and remarried, your Holiness Emeritus?

    The thing is, compared to Francis, I greatly miss Benedict XVI. Even JP2.
    But if he would defend the Church's doctrine on communion and marriage, and call out Francis in some way, he could help prevent open schism. But he isn't. He knows what he is doing by endorsing the "theology of Francis."
    Too many potato pancakes, messes with the blood sugar. :)

    2. Nope. They don't even try to make it like something B16 would write.

    3. Yes, so not the way Benedict would speak.

    4. Yes, Most certainly not Benedict's style at all.

    The Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith(CDF) Cardinal Luiz Ladaria s.j is in schism with the past popes and no one says it is a doctrinal issue.

    Since Cardinal Ladaria makes a mistake on BOD, BOB and I.I he also confused LG 8 as being an exception to EENS at the Press Conference on Placuit Deo

    Schismatic Cardinal Luiz Ladaria s.j does not have the faith: We need to ask the CDF and the Conferences of Catholic Bishops to interpret magisterial documents rationally.Then there is no schism with the past popes

    All religious communities and lay movements can affirm Vatican Council II without the irrational premise, hypothetical cases are just hypothetical : no objection from CDF (Graphics)

    Lay Catholic Movements tell the Vatican that you interpret Lumen Gentium 8 as referring to only hypothetical cases in 2018

  7. I like to think this letter is fake, and only appeared because the Francis knows he is losing support.

  11. These two popes are theologically in schism with the past popes.Pope Benedict confirmed it in March 2016 and Cardinal Luiz Ladaria s.j on March 1,2018 at the Press Conference on Placuit Deo.
    Without their bad theology the sedevacantists and traditionalists could affirm Vatican Council II without the irrational premise. But these two popes maintain the false premise. So Vatican Council II becomes a rupture with Tradition and the two popes appreciate this.

    The sedevacantists MHFM interpret Vatican Council II with an irrationality and then reject the Council.This is heretical. They make the same theological error as the Vatican Curia.

    Without the irrational interpretation of BOD,BOB and I.I by the sedevacantists CMRI, Quanta Cura, Syllabus of Errors,Mystici Corporis etc are not contradicted by Vatican Council II : the fault lies with the sedevacantists and not Vatican Council II

    It's time for U.S sedevacantists to renounce sedevacantism based on Vatican Council II interpreted with the Ladaria Error
