Amidst the confusion of today’s Catholic Church, there are voices that speak out clearly and distinctly. I profiled one of these voices here (where Cardinal Willem Jacobus Eijk, Archbishop of Utrecht, Netherlands,  penned a commentary wherein he hammered the German episcopate and Pope Francis for playing fast and loose with giving Holy Communion to Protestant spouses […]

The splendor of truth shines forth in all the works of the Creator and, in a special way, in man, created in the image and likeness of God (cf. Gen 1:26). Truth enlightens man’s intelligence and shapes his freedom, leading him to know and love the Lord. Hence the Psalmist prays: “Let the light of […]

In the wake of his failed attempt in England to defend Amoris Laetitia, Blase Cardinal Cupich, cardinal archbishop of Chicago, is taking his snake oil show on the road. He will have the help of some of the more heterodox bishops of the US (Joseph Tobin, Donald Wuerl, and Robert McElroy) and dissident theologians who […]

Blase Cupich, cardinal archbishop of Chicago, gave an address yesterday wherein he tried to explain the “revolution of mercy” of Pope Francis in light of Amoris Laetitia. One might think a cardinal of the Church, when addressing such a subject, would speak on the immutable truths of marriage or speak on the yearning for truth […]

In a recent interview with Vatican Radio, Vatican Secretary of State Pietro Cardinal Parolin said Amoris Laetitia represents a “new paradigm” that calls us to a “new spirit, a new approach” to help “incarnate the Gospel in the family.” (Amoris Laetitia is the post-synodal Apostolic Exhortation written by Pope Francis that has caused great confusion in […]

Official acts of the Holy See are documented in the Acta Apostolicae Sedis (AAS). So an encyclical letter or apostolic letter is not official until it is published there. The latest travesty of this pontificate still revolves around Amoris Laetitia (AL). AL is a post-synodal apostolic exhortation that has caused great confusion in the Church because […]

There Is Chaos, Confusion, and Turmoil Within the Church, and Pope Francis Is the Cause

 

So writes Fr. Thomas G. Weinandy, O.F.M., Cap., a highly regarded and accomplished American theologian who is former chief of staff for the U.S. Bishops’ Committee on Doctrine and a current member of the Vatican’s International Theological Commission.

Fr. Weinandy recently made public a three-page letter he had sent to Pope Francis on July 31, 2017. The letter expresses Fr. Weinandy’s concerns about several aspects of the current pontificate:

This one spoke out in 1998 and was Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith: Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger. Dude had this one nailed even before the mess that is Amoris Laetitia was written: Many argue that the position of the Church on the question of divorced and remarried faithful is overly legalistic […]

The title of this post comes from a sentence in the opening paragraph of an article at First Things, by Josef Seifert, the former Dietrich von Hildebrand Chair of Realist Phenomenology at the International Academy of Philosophy. Seifert was recently fired from his post for speaking the truths of the Catholic faith. Our friend, @pseudodionysius, chronicles his story […]

A theological EMP has been released in the Catholic Church: Correctio filialis de haeresibus propagatis. It was over a year ago that four cardinals of the Church issued 5 dubia, or questions, to the Holy Father. Since then, 2 of the cardinals have gone to their eternal reward and the dubia remain unanswered. Preview Open

On September 19, 2016, a letter was signed and sent to Pope Francis from four cardinals of the Church: Walter Brandmüller, Raymond L. Burke, Carlo Caffarra, and Joachim Meisner, seeking clarity on the Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia (AL).

Edward Pentin reports that our old friend, Archbishop Victor “Tucho” “Heal Me With Your Mouth” Fernandez, ghost writer for Pope Francis, has come clean and “has publicly responded for the first time to trenchant criticisms of the Pope’s apostolic exhortation Amoris Laetitia, insisting that, on the issue of remarried divorcees receiving Holy Communion, the Pope intended […]

A Return to Amoris Laetitia:The Vain Attempt to Accommodate Christianity to the Modern World and Its Distorted Values**.

 

At the presentation of Amoris Laetitia (AL)*, Christoph Cardinal Schoenborn famously said: “For me Amoris Laetitia is, first and foremost, a “linguistic event”, as was Evangelii gaudium. Something has changed in ecclesial discourse.” (emphasis mine)

A linguistic event? Boy howdy. Progressives love to manipulate (or is butcher the right word?) language for their cause:

In December 2014, as reported by L’Osservatore Romano and kath.net, Gerhard Cardinal Muller, the Prefect for the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith said: Any separation of the theory and the practice of the faith would, in its formulation, represent a subtle christological heresy.

On October 17, 2015, Pope Francis verbalized his vision for a more collegial, decentralized and listening Church. This vision of his has led to crisis within the Church. The crisis unfolded with the 2014 and 2015 synods on the family and boiled over with the issuance of Amoris Laetitia (AL). (I don’t intend to go […]
