We all know that since Vatican II and during the papacy of Pope Paul VI, a grotesque polarization has taken place in the Church. I feel the blame from day one has to be laid at the feet of the progressives who sought to create a new Church after Vatican II angering and polarizing Catholics who did not and could not believe this could take place.
Pope St. John Paul II tried heroically to bring the great discipline of the Church back to the various polarized factions. Pope Benedict continued this interior healing during his papacy.
The progressives were apoplectic at Pope Benedict's election declaring a grotesque Armageddon would take place during His Holiness reign--it did not happen! He proposed but did not impose.
But from the very moment Pope Francis set foot upon the Loggia, His Holiness was a polarizing figure, from day one.
His indelicate name calling (reminiscent of Trump's similar temptation) polarized priests and bishops and religious.
His Christmas greetings to his curia were a source of polarization in Rome and we are now seeing how well that has helped to end the infighting in the Curia which is now on steroids in terms of polarization.
And then we all know of the polarization caused by the manipulation of the synods and a footnote that was in fact a planned worm to change Catholic moral teaching--very polarizing.
Until the Holy Father understands that His Holiness is the cause of the current meltdown in the curia, and the ongoing polarization in the Church, he won't understand what is happening.
