The late great and sainted George Cardinal Pell proclaimed that the papacy of Pope Francis, meaning the polarization, confusion and incoherence of his leadership, has been a catastrophe for the Church.
I have written that the victims of all of this, you and me and everyone who loves the Catholic Faith of the Ages, are not the culprits. Victim blaming has to cease and Cardinal Pell names the one who is the source of it, the sitting pope.
Now, open warfare has ensued. And the knives are out! The pope’s confusing words in yet another interview to a reporter has exacerbated the confusion he has sown so much so that even dissident Father James Martin demands a clarification (although it won’t please him, but he got it immediately)! And even Vatican News prints the so-called clarification on its website so serious is what the pope misspoke to the Vatican’s gay lobby promoting what Martin promotes along with the German synodal way and Cardinals Hollerich and McElroy!
The article I post below by Edward Pentin shows the extent of the open warfare between cardinals, archbishops and bishops. Folks this is quite serious and as serious if not more so than the politics of the Protestant Reformation in the 1500’s. It is more serious than what led to the Great Schism between the West and the East in 1054. 2023 may be go down in history as an infamous date for the Church!
Read Edward Pentin’s commentary on Pope Francis’ handpicked Jesuit to be a cardinal and regulator of the synod on synodality and perhaps pope one day, the dissident Cardinal Hollerich. Here are the first few paragraphs, but read the entire article by pressing the title below this money byte:
