In an exclusive interview with Catholic Action, Cardinal Burke confirms what this writer always believed: -- "Amoris Laetitia is not Magisterial because it contains serious ambiguities that confuse people and lead them into error and grave sin.'
Cardinal Burke's detractors will state, "who are you to judge the pope."
Let's make no mistake.The pope is not a god. Do not ascribe to any Bishop of Rome that which Protestants have accused us of doing. The First Vatican Council defined narrowly where his "infallibility" lay. The problem is that Catholics, for political purposes, have distorted the Pope's authority. "Full, complete and universal jurisdiction," they will say. No, I say. Not when he teaches error, not when he is heretical! following the release yesterday of the five doubts to which Bergoglio in his arrogance has failed to respond,
The Pope cannot teach error in an infallible manner.That is why Amoris Laetitia is not magisterial, because the Pope IS NOT INFALLIBLE in it. Read that again. Is not infallible!
Who is Cardinal Burke to criticise or challenge the Pope in this regard? Only the greatest legal alive in the Church today and former Prefect of the Apostolic Signatura, think here, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.
The story here is, of course, the letter sent to the Pope. The bigger story is Bergoglio's refusal to answer.
We are entering a grave crisis in the Church, the gravest since the Protestant revolution. It has been brought about by despicable and deceitful men who hate Christ and hate you and me. They are evil and vile and deserve public outing and flogging.
One of those is Anthony Spadaro, a fellow Jesuit. Barona, at Witness Blog, has this Tweet of Spadaro's and commentary. Spadaro is one of Bergoglio's closest collaborators. He dismisses the four Cardinals as "disqualified."
Make no mistake. Our Lord is in control of His Church and He will bring about its purification. It will not come easy and many will fall away.
Do not be one of them.
