Meet the new “Bishop” of Chur, Switzerland:
Joseph Marie Bonnemain
Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the new “bishop” of Chur, Switzerland: Mr. Joseph Marie Bonnemain, O.D. Yes, the 72-year-old is a member of Opus Dei and, although he will be required by church law to tender his resignation in less than two-and-a-half years, when he turns 75, nonetheless “Pope” Francis insisted on having him ordained a bishop and installed in Chur, which occurred on Mar. 19, 2021.
The Vatican’s chief ecumenist, “Cardinal” Kurt Koch, was the main consecrator at the ordination ceremony, which we can say with moral certainty was invalid. In other words, Bonnemain did not actually become a bishop, because the rite used was that promulgated by “Pope” Paul VI in 1968, which is definitely invalid because it does not meet even the minimum requirements laid down by Popes Leo XIII and Pius XII for validity:
Aside from that, Koch himself is not a valid bishop, and Bonnemain isn’t even a real priest. In any case, the Novus Ordo consecration ceremony, which was carried out in German, can be watched in its entirety here:
By becoming the Novus Ordo bishop of Chur, Bonnemain is replacing Vitus Huonder in that role, who recently retired to a home with the Lefebvrist Society of St. Pius X (SSPX).
The Bonnemain appointment to Chur came about with some turbulence. The way things usually work in Chur is that the diocese elects its own bishop but from a list of names given by the Pope. That is, the Pope (or, in our days, the “Pope”) presents three candidates, and the cathedral chapter determines by a vote which of the three becomes the new bishop.
However, this time around, things didn’t go so smoothly. The fairly conservative electors in the diocese were appalled at the candidates presented by Francis and so rejected all of them. A stand-off between Chur and Rome ensued, until Francis finally decided to force another choice onto the diocese. So much for that “decentralized” and non-“clericalist” church the fake pope likes to preach.
The result of Francis’ intervention is pictured at the top of this post. That’s “Bishop” Bonnemain, and he is, of course, a liberal.
During his “ordination Mass”, Bonnemain wasted no time in knowingly giving the Novus Ordo version of Holy Communion to three well-known Protestants, as reported by GloriaTV and, more extensively, by Life Site.
Novus Ordo church law, promulgated by “Saint” John Paul II in 1983 and 1990, actually permits the reception of the Novus Ordo Eucharist by heretics under certain circumstances, even outside danger of death. Naturally, the stipulations are sufficiently vague so as to invite all kinds of “abuses” which can then be decried as needed.
This evil law was confirmed also in the 1993 Directory for the Application of Principles and Norms on Ecumenism (n. 129) and the 2003 encyclical Ecclesia de Eucharistia (n. 45), so it is definitely well established. In fact, its root is found in the Second Vatican Council’s Decree on Ecumenism, where it is hinted at as a supposed “sharing in the means of grace” (Unitatis Redintegratio, n. 8). We have exposed this and refuted it at length on this blog before:
Francis’ own attitude on so-called “intercommunion” was on display five years ago when he was asked by a Lutheran about it. In his answer he said everything and its opposite. For a real Catholic, by contrast, such a question is not difficult to answer: “No, a Lutheran cannot receive Holy Communion in the Catholic Church. Period.”
In 2005, at the funeral of John Paul II, “Cardinal” Joseph Ratzinger, who was to be elected “Pope” Benedict XVI a few days later, himself gave Novus Ordo Communion to a known Protestant, Brother Roger Schutz. Jeanne Smits mentions this in her Life Site report, linked above. The claim that Schutz had converted to Catholicism “in secret” in 1972 and was “secretly” a Catholic for the remainder of his life, is absurd and is denied by the Taizé community of which Schutz was the founder:
In any case, there is no such thing as being a Catholic in secret while being a heretic in public: “But he that doth truth, cometh to the light, that his works may be made manifest, because they are done in God” (Jn 3:21). Such a one is deemed a heretic, and he cannot be a member of the Catholic Church because the Church is a visible institution, which is why one of the requirements for membership is profession of the true Faith, not merely internal belief thereof: “Actually only those are to be included as members of the Church who have been baptized and profess the true faith, and who have not been so unfortunate as to separate themselves from the unity of the Body, or been excluded by legitimate authority for grave faults committed” (Pope Pius XII, Encyclical Mystici Corporis, n. 22; underlining added).
The Life Site report contains some juicy details about what kind of “Catholic” Bonnemain is. Be sure to check it out:
Not surprisingly, Bonnemain has no problem with blessing homosexual couples, essentially believes in situation ethics (decide “case by case”!), and thinks Sacred Theology has something to do with experience — to give just a little glimpse of what goes on behind the man’s forehead.
At the end of his fake ordination ceremony, the new “bishop” of Chur knelt to receive a blessing from those in attendance. He requested that they bless him before he blesses them because, as he makes clear in the clip below, he believes he cannot bless them unless they bless him first — as if the power to bless came from the people and not from God. That is typical Modernist “church from below” garbage, although in the case of the Vatican II Sect, their counterfeit church really does come from below. It is also reminiscent of Francis’ ambiguous request for the people gathered in St. Peter’s Square the evening of his election on Mar. 13, 2013, to pray to God to bless him before he blesses them.
Congratulations, then, to “Bishop” Bonnemain. Another fox has been put in charge of the henhouse.
Calvin Klein must be proud.
