Professor Enrico Maria Radaelli is the top living disciple of Romano Amerio, the great theologian who wrote the seminal critique of Vatican II and its devastating aftermath, “Iota Unum“. Prof. Radaelli sent the following letter to Dr. Mazza. This translation has been approved for publication. We all look forward to Prof. Radaelli’s forthcoming publications on the invalid resignation of Pope Benedict XVI, and share in Prof. Radaelli’s admiration and praise of Dr. Mazza’s work.
Dear Prof. Mazza,
I congratulate you for the dexterity with which you have composed your argument, and, if I may, I have jotted down here and there some short notes to make your text radiate in perfect truth, as it deserves.
What should be appreciated more than anything else is your intuition to focus on canon 188 (which is much more decisive and germane than 332 § 2), and was totally violated by the Renunciation, because: 1) 188 strikes at the root of the heretical act; 2), it strikes a decisive blow to the act in its substance.
Secondly, your attempt, which was completely successful, to expose the formal status of The “Emeritus”, under the linguistic cloak of which the Subject has attempted to hide himself, must be appreciated. It is the decisive issue, and I congratulate you.
May everyone soon greatly appreciate your arguments, which will help bring the Church back to the riverbed of logical truth in which she should always reside in holiness.
