Where is the Church going?

This opinion avoids the error of Conciliarism by affirming that the Church has no authority over a Pope, nor does the Church herself depose the pope, but only performs the ministerial function required for the deposition. The ministerial function consists of those acts which are necessary to establish that the Pope is indeed a heretic, which is then followed by a public declaratory sentence of the crime. It is God himself, however, who causes the man to fall from the Pontificate, but not without the Church herself performing the ministerial functions necessary to establish the crime.

As much as I'd like to accept the reasoning in this, I find myself incapable of understanding a situation in which a 'declaratory sentence' of deposition could be issued without someone having judged that the Pope was guilty of heresy.
