Papal confidante says ‘Amoris’ critics locked in ‘death-trap’ logic
Archbishop Víctor Manuel Fernández and then-Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Buenos Aires, now Pope Francis, appear together in this 2010 photo. (Credit: Stock image.)
If this is an indirect response to the five dubia, the one making it must have written it during a total eclipse of the Son! There is so much bleeding heart ❤️ 1970's liberalism in its content, that one would think this is a caricature of 1970's "I'm okay; you're okay"pop psychology!

But no, it is an academic theogian muddying the waters of the clarity that should come from sighted guides of the Church. This theologian is a blind guide!

God wins in the end.

"23 Woe to the shepherds who destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! says the Lord. 2 Therefore thus says the Lord, the God of Israel, concerning the shepherds who shepherd my people: It is you who have scattered my flock, and have driven them away, and you have not attended to them. So I will attend to you for your evil doings, says the Lord. 3 Then I myself will gather the remnant of my flock out of all the lands where I have driven them, and I will bring them back to their fold, and they shall be fruitful and multiply." Jeremiah 23:1-3

My wife and I were at St. Frances de Sales Catholic Church in Mableton Georgia yesterday for the 9:00 a.m. low Mass. The priest gave a sermon on spiritual blindness. My daughters stayed at home and attended the monthly bilingual Mass at our home parish. There, our pastor preached on racism and, according to them, suggested that, in Sunday's Ordinary Form Gospel, Our Lord made a racist statement..

I think this might be key,
“It is the formulation of the norm that cannot cover everything, not the norm in itself,” Fernández said."

I also think his treatment and reliance on it is flawed. Deeply flawed.

The Catholic Encyclopedia lists the standard “theological censures” applicable to propositions that depart from Catholic faith:

Hæretica (heretical), erronea (erroneous), hæresi proxima (next to heresy), errori proxima (next to error), temeratia (rash), Ambigua (ambiguous) , captiosa (captious), male sonans (evil-sounding), piarum aurium offensiva (offensive to pious ears), . . . . .

Yes, a theological proposition qualifies for censure—along with the person who states it?—if it is ambiguous:

“A proposition is ambiguous when it is worded so as to present two or more senses, one of which is objectionable.”

Under this definition, the divergent episcopal interpretations of certain propositions in Amoris Laetitia surely constitute prima facie evidence of their ambiguity deserving of censure (as is, apparently, the author of this article).

Thanks for sharing. Maybe you should forward this to the USCCB since they appear to be lost on this issue
