NCR reported: "Greg Burke, the head of the Holy See press office, said the nine-member Council of Cardinals focused particularly on the roles of the Secretariat of State, the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples, the Congregation for Bishops, and the Congregation for the Oriental Churches.Burke said the Council of Cardinals did not speak about a controversial November letter from four semi-retired cardinals challenging Pope Francis’ apostolic exhortation on family life, Amoris Laetitia.
See Bishop Schneider's comments on the Synod's Final Report here on LifeSite News. He predicted rightly that the ambiguity and tactics used in the report would cause grave problems:
"In the text section of the numbers 84-86 the Final Report represents, unfortunately, a serious departure from this Divine command. Indeed in the mentioned passages the text does not plead directly in favor for the legitimacy of the admittance of the divorce and remarried to Holy Communion, the text even avoids the expression “Holy Communion” or “Sacraments.” Instead, the text by means of obfuscating tactics, uses ambiguous expressions like “a more full participation in the life of the Church” and “discernment and integration.”
By such obfuscating tactics the Final Report in fact put time bombs and a back door for the admittance of the divorced and remarried to Holy Communion, causing by this a profanation of the two great sacraments of Marriage and Eucharist, and contributing at least indirectly to the culture of divorce – to the spreading of the “plague of divorce” (Second Vatican Council, Gaudium et spes, 47)."
Indeed, we are witnessing an historic event in the life of the Church, not unlike the gravity of the error of Arianism in the 4th century, which was resolved at the Council of Nicaea. The Holy Spirit will indeed guide the Church through this, but we need to pay close attention to what is truly magisterial, infallible teaching, and part of the sacred deposit of faith and what is not. The Church's teaching on marriage is divine law ... revealed by Christ and no human being can alter or dare provide "exceptions" to it. When there are cardinals or even a pope who (knowingly or unknowingly) depart from the repeated, historic teaching of the Church, we must recognize it for what it is.
It seems clear there will be no response to the dubia, and so keep an eye out for a coming correction from the cardinals ... very soon. Peace+ DDG
