By Bishop Athanasius Schneider, LifeSiteNews - All true sons and daughters of the Church ought to launch a serious world-wide crusade of prayer and penance to implore a divine intervention… The hypothesis of the possibility of a heretical pope derives from the Decree of Gratian from the 12th century. According to the opinion expressed in this decree, the pope cannot be judged by any human authority, except if he has fallen into heresy. Basing themselves on this spurious decree erroneously attributed to St. Boniface (+754) and accepted by Gratian, the Medieval theologians and theologians of the subsequent centuries maintained as possible the hypothesis - but not the certitude - of a heretical pope.

By Phil Lawler, Catholic Culture - But I was taken aback, I admit, by Archbishop Bernard Hebda’s directive that priests and deacons in his St. Paul archdiocese should not vote in Minnesota’s presidential primary… I wonder whether Archbishop Hebda knows that a solid majority of his priests would choose to vote in the Democratic primary. If so, it’s theoretically possible that some energetic researcher could search the voter rolls and determine which percentage of the local clergy chose to participate in the primary of a party whose leadership is firmly committed to legal abortion on demand, same-sex marriage, and gender ideology. We still wouldn’t know how those priests voted. But the data would be interesting, wouldn’t they?
