10th Anniversary of Benedict XVI’s Renunciation of the Papacy

February 11, 2023 (Steven O’Reilly) – On this day 10 years ago, Pope Benedict XVI announced that he would resign the papacy effective February 28, 2013. Earlier today, to mark this occasion, I was invited to join Italian musician and writer Aurelio Porfiri on his podcast Ritorno a Itaca (“return to Ithaca”) to discuss the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI and questions around it’s validity.  The episode is entitled Benedict XVI’s Renunciation, 10 Years After.  The link to the discussion may be found here:

I wish to express my thanks to Signor Porfiri for the invitation to discuss this question.

For anyone who is interested in the arguments against Benepapism, please check out my article compilations (see Summa Contra BipThe Case against those who claims ‘Benedict is (still) pope’). Please, also check out my book titled Valid? The Resignation of Pope Benedict XVI (Available on AmazonBarnes & Noble, and many other books sellers, globally). I have published six YouTube video episodes on Benepapism thus far on the subject of the munus vs. the ministerium (see Episode 1Episode 2Episode 3, Episode 4, Episode 5Episode 6). I will soon be publishing other videos against Benepapism on the subject of canon 17, and the “always is also a forever.”
