SOCCI: FRANCIS A “FOREIGN BODY” IN THE CHURCH?
The Opposition Mounts
by Christopher A. Ferrara
December 5, 2016
In the turbulent wake of Amoris Laetitia, Francis may think he can calm the waves of disturbance he has unleashed throughout the Church and force an acceptance of his utter novelties in the realm of moral theology even despite the historic Four Cardinals Letter. The chosen modus operandi seems to be the use of mitered henchman — strategically vested with cardinal's hats in a move akin to promoting pawns to queens in a chess endgame. Their role on the Bergoglian chess board is to denounce the four cardinals and other objectors as fomenters of "disunity" and "disloyalty" to the Pope, as if Francis were the head of a political party who must be defended no matter what he says or does.
