Cardinal Müller Speaks to the Dubia!

[Chiesa] To him too, in addition to Pope Francis, cardinals Brandmüller, Burke, Caffarra, and Meisner had sent their five “dubia” on the interpretation of “Amoris Laetitia,” seeking “clarity.”
And neither he, Cardinal Gerhard L. Müller, prefect of the congregation for the doctrine of the faith, nor much less the pope had responded until now to the questions of the four cardinals.
To make up for this, however, now Müller is bringing clarity, and how, in an extensive interview that is coming out today in the magazine “Il Timone,” conducted by editor Riccardo Cascioli and by Lorenzo Bertocchi:
In the interview, the cardinal does not use the word “dubia,” but he says “apertis verbis” precisely what the four cardinals were asking to have clarified.
And he does not fail to lash out against those bishops who with their interpretive “sophistries” - he says - instead of acting as leaders for their faithful are falling “into the risk of the blind leading the blind.”
Here are the key passages of the interview.“dubia”-this-way/?refresh_ce

Too much Catholic teaching is being conducted in and through the media

Muller's response offers some light, that is until near the end of the interview he blames the interpreters of AL for getting its meaning wrong. There has been too much confusion over AL just to say that all is well with it and so many are reading it the wrong way or not carefully enough. Francis is thus right and the confused are, well simply confused. The Cardinal obfuscates?

Muller has been intimidated.

I'll bet that Pope Francis, scum that he is, not only disagrees with the basically sound comments of Cardinal Muller, but will before to long, contradict him....instead siding with the liberals who have abused the document to allow for anything.

Also, has anyone heard the report coming about the Knights of Mata....that during his face to face meeting with the Pope, Francis tried to get the now ex-head of the Knights of Malta to say that everything was Cardinal Burke's fault in the first place. Which the ex-Grand Master did not do.
Francis is garbage. He wanted to use the occasion of the meeting to trap Cardinal Burke. This "pope" is truly evil.

Where is this "report" located and how do we get access to it? Let's not judge by hearsay; let's see the evidence (the "report").

I would like to ask Pope Francis does he think St John Fisher was wrong and was Henry the viii right.

I am sure Francis does. After all, he's basically said that Martin Luther was right. This Pope is garbage. The sooner he is gone, the better. Sorry...but I dislike Pope Francis these days more than I usually did....and that was still considerable :)

You have to go to the Il Timone website and pay €3 to be able to view. I have made a precis with some comments available at:

It is not an answer to the dubia merely Cardinal Muller's personal views on the AL debacle. He says only the Pope can give an authoritative interpretation of AL. Cardinal Muller seems to have overlooked that the Pope has given his interpretation to the Bishops of Buenos Aires and it does not agree with Cardinal Muller. It is plainly heresy in the Cardinal's terms.

Don't insult the memory of a great Catholic and leader of Spain, Francisco Franco, by using his name with reference to Francis. Franco, the liberal and Masonic western propaganda notwithstanding, was a loyal Catholic, a courageous leader who defeated the Communists (called then "Republicans" in Spain) who slaughtered thousands of bishops, priests, nuns and Catholic lay faithful. It was Franco who defeated the monster that is international Communism/Socialism---and that is why the Left has never forgotten and continually try to smear his memory, as they do with Margaret Thatcher, Augusto Pinochet, and Salazar of Portugal. The venomous Left is always active in re-writing history and smearing their enemies, whether living or dead. True sons/daughters of Satan; don't join them unsuspectingly by adopting their lies and language, however unintentionally.
