WHY BONIFACE VIII IS IS TRULY AN ORTHODOX ROMAN CATHOLIC POPE
Why is Pope Boniface VIII a heroic and saintly orthodox Roman Catholic Pope?
If for no other reason, it is for the document, "Unam Sanctam." He was no false ecumenist. Philip the Fair of France replied to the publication of this by Pope Boniface with the total confiscation of all property belonging to the French bishops who had attended the Council in Rome. He placed under guard the French Cardinal-legate, whom the Pope sent to Philip the Fair with the bull, as soon as he arrived in Paris.
Pope Boniface VIII, was finally convinced that all hope of reconciliation with Philip the Fair was futile and so he wrote the King a sentence of excommunication. Fast upon this brave papal deed came King Philip the Fair holding his own French council in which the most malicious attacks on this holy pope were published.
So clever were the lies and sweeping denunciations and misrepresentations and so threatening the intimidations that the great body of French clergy and laity even joined in with Philip the Fair against Pope Boniface VIII. The rest of the story is the history of the Avignon papacy and the apostasy of Philip the Fair and the French cardinals, bishops, clergy and laity.
How history has repeated itself to this very day in modern day France with its national apostasy of the Catholic faith and its gluttonous appetite for self-destruction and cultural suicide; all of this occurring in the face of today's even more virulent Islamic invasion, a rendezvous much more aggressive and hostile than the one during the Crusades of the medieval past.
