    No...he can abdicate or commit an act of formal heresy which would prevent him from receiving Holy Communion which is sort of like the worst thing that can happen in the Church

    Pope Alexander Septus had a wife, several mistresses, at least four children and was complicit in dozens of murders ... according to his critics.

    He was in office till the day he died.

    Wrong. The Pope is not infallible. Infallibility has to do with matters of Church doctrine, not the person. Basically, when a Pope (after centuries of research and discussion) rules that Mary was immaculately conceived or assumed into heaven, no succeeding Pope can change the already established doctrine. That is the infallibility policy--and it has nothing whatsoever to do with anything else, let alone a Pope's personal views, idiosyncrasies.
