EVEN CRUX POINTS OUT THE ABSURDITY OF THE DEAN OF THE ROMAN ROTA WHO PROMOTES A CREEPING INFALLLIBLITY TO A QUESTIONALBE PAPAL DOCUMENT AND SINS BY PRESUMPTION! AND CRUX ALSO POINTS OUT THAT THE CURRENT HOLY FATHER IS FOMENTING SCHISM BY HIS SILENCE AND/OR THREAT TO REMOVE THE RED HAT FROM CARDINALS WHOSE RESPONSIBILITY IS TO ADVISE THE POPE
You can read the Crux article HERE, but the following are excerpts with my comments in RED:
Msgr. Pinto: Faced with what the Church calls “irregular situations”- which he didn’t specify, but which could run from divorced and civilly remarried Catholics to gay Catholics in a civil marriage - Vito Pinto asked: “What do we do? Turn the Church into a prison? Stand at the door of the parish and say: ‘You yes [can go in], you no?'” What planet does this man live on? No one is barred from attending Mass, to include the unbaptized! However, only those who have reached the age of reason and are in a state of grace should receive Holy Communion. Those in sinful and institutionalized sinfulness in particular are not allowed to receive Holy Communion and when they do they do not receive the graces of Holy Communion and may very well be committing a sacrilege. The only person that must receive Holy Communion at Mass is the celebrant. It is required to complete the Sacrifice. The laity are highly encouraged to receive Holy ion but this is not required at every Mass, but only once a year. Frequent Holy Communion when one is in a state of grace and has observed the fast is certainly laudable and encouraged but again not required. There are graces to be received by simply "hearing" Mass!
Msgr. Pinto: The four cardinals and others within the Church who are questioning Pope Francis’s reforms and his apostolic exhortation Amoris Laetitia are questioning “two synods of bishops on marriage and family. Not one but two! An ordinary and an extraordinary one. The action of the Holy Spirit is beyond doubt!” Really?!? Here I would insist that the good Msgr. is committing the grave sin of presumption! What seminary did he attend?
This speaks for itself without my comment and is from another commentator, not Msgr. Pinto: ...(he didn't) use the word “schism,” but he did say Francis taking away the cardinals’ red hats would create “a total war.” Even though only four cardinals have come forward, he said “they’re not the only ones” who have doubts, and they have many followers who agree with them that Amoris Laetitia leaves open some question marks.
“Whether you [or the pope] agree with what the cardinals asked, it wouldn’t be wise [to ask for their resignations] because they’re asking questions that many people have, both ‘left’ and ‘right,'” he said, adding that at the end of the day, the cardinals did what they’re supposed to do: “Advise the pope.”
(...He) said that if consulted by Pope Francis, he would advise him to invite the four cardinals for a conversation, because among other reasons, by taking the red hats away, he would be doing the opposite of what he preaches, which is inviting people to dialogue.
