Vatican Theologians reportedly studying what to do about a Heretical Pope
The fireworks just keep on coming. As the reliable Vaticanist Giuseppe Nardi reports today, a 1975 theological study by the learned Brazilian layman Arnaldo Vidigal Xavier da Silveira is currently making the rounds in the Vatican, and it’s not just any study: It’s a study on whether it is possible for a Pope to be or become a heretic, and if so, what consequences would follow from this.
What might possibly have given occasion for Vatican theologians to occupy themselves with such abstruse thoughts?
