Pope Bergoglio's silence convicts him

The former Director of the Vatican Bank gives his opinion on the state of the Church under Pope Bergoglio.

What we and others have been saying for four years now is becoming clearer to more and more, nearly daily.

Pope Francis’ silence is a bold denial of objective truth: former Vatican Bank chief

Why doesn’t the Pope respond to the Dubia? The former director of the Vatican Bank thinks he knows why. In a biting essay in Italy’s La Verità, translated below, Ettore Gotti Tedeschi suggests that Francis is sending two messages through his silence: that he can contradict himself if he likes and that he wishes to impose a “New Catholic Morality” on the Church. This new morality would be based not on doctrine but on the subjective opinions of the individual conscience. Meanwhile, Amoris Laetitia’s denial of eternal damnation contradicts Jesus’ assertions in the Gospel that sinners are indeed in danger of this fate. Ultimately, Francis’ silence — which allows doubts to continue to flourish — is a denial of objective truth.  
June 23, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — I see two implicit messages in the Pope’s failure to answer the dubia. The first implicit message is “I can contradict myself if I want to.” At the start of the Synod on the Family (October 2014), the Pope invited the cardinals to speak openly and frankly, without fear of embarrassing the Pope (the famous parresia). And yet for months the Pope has refused to respond privately or publicly to the dubia expressed by four cardinals who represent a large part of the faithful.

It isn't the 10 Commandments anymore, but the 10 Suggestions

Poor Jorge his back is up against a wall, he is stuck in a corner pushed back by the shield of faith, yet he still insists on defeating it,is he so blind as not to see the devil has been trying to destroy the truth since the very beginning.. Jorge bergolioooooo is a failure, he will go down in history as the greatest pretend catholic jerk along side Martin Lunatic Luther..

Pope Francis is the Frankenstein monster. Pope Paul VI is Dr. Frankenstein.

If the deceit of Pope Francis is so obvious how to we explain that so few members of the clergy are willing to speak up. While, in the meantime, Pope Francis has become a merciful hero to millions of contracepting and divorcing Catholics who now feel empowered to flaunt the Church's teachings with impunity as obedient Catholics become disoriented and feel abandoned.

The Pope is silent in order to show that he can be. Where the Divine Commandment has been subordinated to human opinion (namely, his own), there is no question of reason, only of power. A man like Jorge Bergoglio believes in "dialogue" when he exclusively controls the entire process. To be put in the (to him) subordinate position of participating in a discussion he himself has not initiated would be both undignified and intolerable.

We are getting a unique opportunity to be faithful to God, at a time when we are getting no support for it, in our families, the culture, even the Church. These things are mysterious, but our Catholic sensibility tells us this is of great value, surely more than we can guess or know in this world.

Cannot explain it Michael. I read the other day that Cardinal Burke is still hanging on to hope that he will answer their 'Dubia'. I cannot figure out whether he is just naive or dragging his feet. There is NO WAY on God's green earth that Bergoglio is going to answer the Dubia. It's pretty obvious he is trying to change Doctrine via the 'back door' so to speak. If he answers via his twisted 'theology', he condemns himself, and if he answers according to true Church teaching, he betrays himself and all of his cohorts. He's between a rock and a hard place. If the Cardinals can't see this, they are either blind or in denial.....or they may see it, but lack the conviction and/or courage to hold him accountable.
Pretty sad state of affairs.

Thanks TLM for your comment. We are dealing with the mystery of iniquity here. But we have faith that God will use this evil for ultimate good purposes. That is our faith. That is what keeps us going.

And then there is the silence of those prelates who supposedly support the Dubia but prefer to hide away for fear of losing their Offices. Also the absurd silence of the SSPX & other Traditional Orders who should rightly lend their voices to the issuing of the formal correction if PF still persist in not answering the Dubia. As Our Lady of Good Success predicted "In this supreme moment of need of the Church, the one(s) who should speak will fall silent.”

Ana Milar is exactly correct. This is the scandal of scandal. The sheep have lost their shepherds and are being left to the machination of the devil. The owner of the vineyard will deal with this cowardly servants when He comes again.
