And now, this: Dr. Kelly Bowring, an American Novus Ordo theology professor, has composed an 'Open Letter to Pope Francis', with an accompanying video, in which he threatens to break communion with the Argentine "Pope" should he attempt to change church teaching or practice substantially:
Open Letter to Pope Francis: Are You Planning to Redefine Church Doctrine? (by Kelly Bowring) The following video shows Bowring reading the Open Letter: Kelly Bowring isn't an insignificant figure in Novus Ordo Land. According to his own testimony, he has received a doctorate in the Novus Ordo version of Sacred Theology from the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas in Rome and possesses his church's mandate to teach theology. In other words, he is a real theologian of the Vatican II Church. Here's what his web site says about his background and education: Dr. Kelly Bowring is a Catholic theologian and popular Catholic speaker, who received his doctorate from the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas (Rome); his licentiate from the Dominican House and the John Paul II Institute (Washington DC) while working at the US Bishops Office; and his masters from Franciscan University of Steubenville (Ohio). He has the Church's mandatum to teach theology. Dr. Bowring has been a dean, chair, and professor of theology at the Graduate School of Theology at St. Charles Seminary, Southern Catholic College, and St. Mary's College of Ave Maria University. (Source) Bowring is also an author of sundry books published by Two Heart Press. He is an avid promoter of various alleged apparitions, revelations, and seers, some of them genuine (Quito, LaSalette, Lourdes, Fatima), others unapproved or definitely false (Medjugorje, Garabandal, Amsterdam, Luisa Piccarreta, Faustina Kowalska). Before analyzing Bowring's letter to Francis, let's be very clear about one thing: Regardless of how good his intentions may be, Bowring is a Novus Ordo Modernist, not a true Catholic, not a real Catholic theologian, and not someone from whom anyone should seek instruction in matters of Faith or morals. Ready for Schism: Dr. Bowring's Open Letter to "Pope" Francis Dr. Bowring begins by asking Francis a number of questions about things that have characterized his putative pontificate so far, specifically regarding liberalism and sexual morality. So, it is puzzling to see how Dr. Bowring is at this point still asking whether Francis is a heretic. Bowring agrees: A Heretic cannot be Pope Bowring concedes that a heretic cannot be a valid Pope, and he states in his Open Letter that any heresy on Francis' part would invalidate his claim the papacy. In this context he refers people by means of a link to the following page on his web site, which discusses issues surrounding heretical papal claimants: Concerning Pope Francis and the False Prophet In a nutshell, he says that if a Pope were to become a heretic in office, he would cease to be Pope, "without any declaration, by operation of law. Yet, Bowring then states: "However, ecclesiastical law requires that the faithful must presume we have a valid Pope, unless the Church's highest authority formally declares otherwise." Perhaps Bowring is here adopting John Salza's position of "the heretical Pope ceases to be Pope immediately but we can't know this until there is a declaration by the cardinals". (Kelly Bowring, "Concerning Pope Francis and the False Prophet", Two Hearts Press Blog, Oct. 1, 2013) Now this is just rich. Bowring casually ascribes an absolutely outrageous quote to Pope Pius IX, without giving any reference whatsoever. It is extremely unscholarly and irresponsible of Dr. Bowring, who has such great academic credentials, to simply lift an unverified quote like that off the internet and use it as papal teaching. As to the quote of St. Robert Bellarmine about "resisting the Pope" that Dr. Bowring offers, it is a very popular quote that is used again and again by non-sedevacantists to justify their resistance to the Vatican II magisterium, but the original context in which it appears shows that St. Robert was not at all endorsing their "recognize-and-resist" position, as the following links show: So, we would like to say to Dr. Bowring: "You're a bit too late here. Excuse me, Dr. Bowring, but where were you all this time? Bowring asks Bergoglio point-blank: (Kelly Bowring, "Open Letter to Pope Francis: Are You About to Redefine Church Doctrine?", Two Hearts PressBlog, Oct. 1, 2014) All right, here's some advice from Novus Ordo Watch, free of charge: The False Prophet mentioned in Holy Scripture (Apoc 16:13), whoever he may be, is probably not going to tell you that he's the False Prophet. And if we consider that it was his election, more than that of Francis, that was riddled with irregularities and bizarre occurrences, as the following links show, it becomes clear that your focus, Dr. Bowring, ought to be on Angelo Roncalli much more than on Jorge Bergoglio - you are 55 years too late! Bowring then warns that "the false prophet will be masquerading as a friend to Catholics, Protestants, Jews, and Muslims". Bowring specifically says: "Those who separate themselves from the [Vatican II] Church in these times by compromising doctrine, even if following a pope, will no longer be united to the true Church" (ibid.; italics added). Now this is a mouthful. Let's disentangle this for a moment. Bowring is saying that if Francis compromises doctrine, then… he cuts himself off from the Vatican II Church ("True Church" in his eyes) If it appears to you that maybe this papal teaching doesn't exactly fit into Dr. Bowring's theology, that's because it doesn't. Dr. Bowring ends his letter with another puzzling statement. He writes: "Pope Francis, if you should still yet decide to allow any change in doctrine, then the Church's legitimate hierarchy will make the faithful aware of such matters clearly at that time and how we should best respond in good faith. Bowring really seems to be undercutting the whole reason why he made his letter public in the first place. However good and noble Dr. Bowring's intentions may be, one would have expected a bit more from a man with a doctorate degree in the Novus Ordo version of Sacred Theology from a Pontifical University in Rome. Dr. Bowring has just given an informal theological justification for it. Doesn't a turn against Francis by "conservative" Novus Ordo Modernists like Kelly Bowring implicitly legitimize the Vatican II Sect at least up until Francis? Thus, either way, whether you go with Francis or with Bowring, the Vatican II Revolution is legitimized and perpetuated, whether the more moderate and hidden kind (that of Benedict XVI) or the more extreme and open kind (that of Francis). When we say that there may occur a schism in the Novus Ordo Sect, or that Bowring is ready to go into schism, we simply mean a rift between Francis and his followers on the one hand, and Novus Ordos who reject Francis on the other (and possibly accept Benedict instead). Keep in mind that, as we said towards the beginning, the mere fact that a well-intentioned soul is opposing Francis and his more obvious errors doesn't mean that this person is giving you the true Catholic Faith - it could simply be a false alternative, as is the case with Kelly Bowring's proposal of the pre-Francis Vatican II religion as the "solution" to Bergoglio. What's also disturbing about Dr. Bowring is the fact that he puts so much emphasis on alleged apparitions and revelations - and releases them into the wild, into the vulnerable and already-confused public.
