CWN Editor's Note: In an open letter, a group of 20 Catholic clerics and scholars have charged Pope Francis with heresy, and called upon the world’s bishops to take action to “free the Church from her present distress.” The lengthy letter argues that statements by Pope Francis, most notably in Amoris Laetitia, meet the canonical definition of heresy, and have created “one of the worst crises in the history of the Catholic Church.” The signatories include Father Aidan Nichols, Father John Hunwicke, Dr. Peter Kwasniewski, and John Rist.

    So how does the Pope "deprive himself of the papacy"? I always thought you had to depend on the Holy Spirit or stray blood clot to do that.

    Their case is very compelling!
