Pro-Papal States Saints and Martyrs

This is why people have lost respect for the Church. In recent times, to include the instance you pointed out, it has acted weak. Nobody wants to be a follower of a weak authority. The Pope at the time should have refused lifting the King's excommunication until the Pope was restored to all of his former lands. Had the Pope let the King sweat in terror on his deathbed; to die without the last rites (probably be damned to Hell), and be denied a Christian burial would have been a great power move to show the world that the Church does not play around. Weak move, your Holiness.
