Pope pope Francis is in a terrible mess today, because of the criticism of conservative cardinals, challenging him on the divorced.
A confusion whose future consequences cannot be predicted. After all, it is the leading leadership of one billion and two hundred million Catholics oppose great church leaders. Explaining better: on one side is the Pope Franciscus who naturally accepts the reintegration of men or women who have abandoned their spouses and remarried in civil ceremonies. But on the other side are conservative critics who in no way accept these liberal and “diabolical” ideas of the current pope.
Four cardinals of those tough guys did something unusual in the Catholic church. They accused pope Pope Francis of sowing confusion about important issues.
I think what irritated the cardinals was not so much the ideas of the supreme Catholic leader in Rome about divorce. They were angry because the pontiff did not respond to a letter they sent to him in September with some questions.
If Pope, pope Frances took the letter, he certainly saw the name of the sender and immediately deduced what it was about. If he opened the letter, God only knows, if he did not open it also can not say. The fact is that pope catholic did not give importance, that is, did not respond to the cardinals.
Then they publicly expressed their sorrow through a petition, questioning love. I think that disagreeing with love is a tremendous ignorance on the part of those cardinals. I think the pontiff did very well.
Not respond to them. But what kind of love they questioned?
Pope pope and the “Amoris Laetitia” or the Joy of Love
Vatican pope Francis with his best intentions released an encyclical of 260 pages in April entitled “Amoris Laetitia” or the Joy of Love.
All that the Pope at the end of the world wants most with this document is that his
1.2 billion Catholics can attend a more inclusive and less condemning environment.
The most liberal document of all time calls for the “holy church” not to be so strict against “imperfect” members. And he cites as an example of imperfection those who divorced, but remarried. In the opinion of pope Pope Franciscus “no one can be condemned forever”.
As mentioned before, there are many Catholic religious leaders who dislike the Argentine pope and disagree with him publicly on various issues.
This time, however, some of those who may one day be pope turned their disagreements to one aspect of the papal charter: the full reintegration of Catholics from their spouses to the church, and remarried in civil ceremonies.
In the letter the four prominent cardinals wrote to the pope in September, they asked him to “resolve uncertainties and bring clarity.”
Here is a short excerpt, according to the Catholic News Agency (CNA):
“We the undersigned, but also many Bishops and Priests, have received numerous requests from the faithful of various social strata on the correct interpretation to give to Chapter VIII of the Exhortation,” the cardinals wrote in their Sept. 19 letter to the Pope.
The signatories were Cardinals Walter Brandmüller, president emeritus of the Pontifical Committee for Historical Sciences; Raymond Burke, patron of the Order of Malta and prefect emeritus of the Apostolic Signatura; Carlo Caffarra, Archbishop Emeritus of Bologna; and Joachim Meisner, Archbishop Emeritus of Cologne.
The complete text of the letter is published in an English translation by the National Catholic Register.
Do you think they are right? I think they are, although I am neither Catholic nor Protestant. The catholic Church doctrine says divorced people can only receive a fellowship if they do not have sex partners. In the eyes of the church, therefore, the first marriage is still valid. Thus, “cute” ones that get into new adventures are in a sinful act of adultery.
Anyway, I think that Pope Rome will continue to cause much controversy, while in charge of the Catholic Church. I say this because the Vatican Pope Francis will not change his way of wanting to please God and the devil at the same time. In other words, satisfy the Greeks and Trojans at the same time.
