Edward Pentin Reports: Respected Vatican Theologian Questions “Juridical Validity” of Pope Benedict’s Attempted Partial Resignation, Calls for In-depth Study and Investigation:
Quote from: Pentin
“More useful” than a fraternal correction, he said, would be to examine the “juridical validity” of Pope Benedict’s XVI’s resignation and “whether it is full or partial.” Jesus, he said, did not give the keys of heaven to Peter and Andrew but “said it only to Peter.” Such an “in-depth study” of the resignation, he said, could help to “overcome problems that today seem insurmountable to us.”

Probably because your browser censored it.

Many would welcome this, and much more, even going back to the 1958 conclave..
alas, laypersons have no say in the Church hierarchy. Aldo Maria Valli is a lay person.

Nothing can happen until there is another Pope, or some bizarre proclamation by Benedict XVI.

It is strange. Benedict is 'Pope Emeritus' and wears the Papal cassock. There is only meant to be one Pope. If Benedict started to opine on the Swift payments and other shenanigans, he might find himself with more than the bruise he got.
Padre Pio: Pray, hope, and don't worry. Worry is useless. God is merciful and will hear your prayer.

But Msgr Bux isn't.
In conclusion, I can leave you with no better advice than that given after every sermon by Msgr Vincent Giammarino, who was pastor of St Michael’s Church in Atlantic City in the 1950s:

    “My dear good people: Do what you have to do, When you’re supposed to do it, The best way you can do it,   For the Love of God. Amen.”

Although this new particular title is novel to the Bishop of Rome, it is long-standing in diocesan parishes.
For example, I'm sure you can think of plentiful 'Pastor Emeritus' retired parish priests, often listed in church
bulletins and living in retirement facilities.
