The Synod Market Index. Kasper Down, Caffarra UpEven Pope Francis is distancing himself from the former and taking sides with the latter. And staying on good terms with Cardinal Müller. And promoting the African Sarah. All unyielding defenders of the Catholic doctrine on marriage

ROME, March 20, 2015 – “This does not resolve anything,” Pope Francis has said with regard to the idea of giving communion to the divorced and remarried. Much less if they “want” it, demand it. Because communion “is not a badge, a decoration. No.”
Read the completion of the very good article by Sandro Magister at his blog, Chiesa, that gives hope to us of the Holy Spirit's sure hand in guiding a pope who loves to confuse and make a mess by pressing HERE.
Not buying it…yet.
The problem is, I don't know which pope to believe.
Pope Francis says, ""Christians with the mentality of doctors of the law, destroy."
Jesus says, "Do not think I have come to destroy the Law or the Prophets, I have not come to destroy, but to fulfil."
If it comes down to one or the other, I will know where I will be.
I just hope that those who can't tell the difference will, as St. Thomas More said, have "when their head stops spinning their face is front."
I'm with anonymous in that I'm not buying it quite yet, but nevertheless, this is great to read.
Luke 11:46 "Jesus replied, "And you experts in the law, woe to you, because you load people down with burdens they can hardly carry, and you yourselves will not lift one finger to help them."
Matthew 23:1-3 "Then Jesus spoke to the crowds and to His disciples, saying: "The scribes and the Pharisees have seated themselves in the chair of Moses; therefore all that they tell you, do and observe, but do not do according to their deeds; for they say things and do not do them.…"
The Biblical "doctors of the law" had it only partially right. That's why Jesus said he came to fulfill the Law and the Prophets.
