Francis’ Trustworthiness (with related thoughts on SSPX) - by John Vennari
Francis’ Trustworthiness in Light
of the Forte Revelation
With related thoughts on the present SSPX drama
by John Vennari
Archbishop Bruno Forte, confidant and collaborator of Pope Francis, revealed in a recent interview a statement from Francis that displays the cagey manner by which he manipulated the Synod toward a pre-determined heterodox outcome.
To quote the May 3 Zonalocale.it Italian news report provided in English by Steve Skojec:“Archbishop Forte has revealed a ‘behind the scenes’ [moment] from the Synod: ‘If we speak explicitly about Communion for the divorced and remarried,’ said Archbishop Forte, reporting a ‘joke’ of Pope Francis, ‘you do not know what a terrible mess we will make. So we won’t speak plainly, [but] do it in a way that the premises are there, then I will draw out the conclusion’.” 1
Let’s take a look at what is here revealed:
1) Francis is determined to open the door for sacrilegious Communion via admission of divorced and remarried to the Blessed Sacrament;
2) He is aware that to speak openly of this aim would make a ‘terrible mess,’ in other words incite a healthy Catholic opposition;
3) He urges his collaborators not to speak plainly of this insidious aim but to lay the groundwork and prepare the structure;
4) “And I will draw out the conclusions,” that opens the door to sacrilegious Communion under the false pretext of tenderness and mercy.
Is anyone else long weary of dishonest tactics enacted by the one man on earth who has the greatest obligation to speak the truth?
