The Cardinal Advisors ...

Why didn't he ask him then?


If there is a crisis in the Church - and it sure looks like there is because online and off, publications are selling out covering every aspect of it - fueling the fire.  So, why don't the Cardinals pin the Holy Father down about the five dubia?  Huh?  Huh?

The Cardinal Advisors got together this week, and this afternoon the Pope will be sitting in.  They concelebrated Mass with the Pope this week as well.  Couldn't one of these guys pin the Pope down?  Why couldn't Burke have 'crashed' the session?  Huh?  Huh?

The next meeting of the Council of Cardinals will take place 24-26 April 2017.  So Cardinal Burke is not on the Council of Cardinals?  So what?  Talk to the Pope directly.  Break protocol.  The Cardinals need to take care of this - it's their problem.

Cardinals and bishops have the duty and the responsibility to take care of this.

Catholics have the right to ask questions.

But calumny and detraction is absolutely scandalous and evil.  Case in point from Hilary White:

I’ve been in conversation recently with some people who lived and worked in South America, particularly in Argentina, and the things that they say are “widely,” even commonly known about what kind of man now sits on Peter’s throne. These things would likely curl the hair of most people just coming to these discussions. Even those who are comfortable identifying Francis as a heretic and an enemy of the Faith and of Christ would likely balk at hearing the things I’ve been hearing.
At the moment I can’t share much of that with you, but there is actually quite a lot that was written about him and his style of governance of Buenos Aires that is publicly available and pretty easily accessible. And it paints a terrifying picture of a man totally uninterested in the Catholic religion or the law – whether Canon Law or the Moral Law – a man obsessed with power and utterly ruthless in his methods of gaining it. - Hilary White

Journalists/bloggers like this are contributors to the "network of lies, intrigue, espionage, mistrust and fear" they claim to be exposing.  It is a scandal all its own.

There is hope for us all however, even when everything collapses around us.  “Never despair of God's mercy.” - Rule of St. Benedict Ch 4: 73

    When I read this kind of drivel, I already know it's all personal opinion hiding behind "well, this is what they are saying" and trying to peddle it as actual fact. Where is the outrage in the street among the common folk? Why are all of the Masses in St. Peter's filled when our Holy Father celebrates Mass there? Why does he attract so many folks when he travels about or travels abroad? Why are not folks protesting his "lies, his heresy, his blatant use of power?"

    God alone sits in judgement of our Holy Father ... woe to us who say otherwise.

    And yes, if it is such an issue, let the cardinals and bishops take it up with our Holy Father rather than scurry about murmuring and giving (according to some) their "opinions elsewhere."

    Lent is soon upon us and boy, oh boy, do I have lots to pray for. Thanks be to God.

    1. Former Lifesite reporter I think - writes on occasion for the Remnant, lived in Norcia and Rome, has a website, can't say too much more. Google her, you'll see.

    2. She knows people in the Vatican - they work at Vatican radio - so she has direct access to gossip.
