Amoris Laetitia

No, I'm not going to bother. The reaction of the former archbishop of St. Louis is interesting, though. Cardinal Burke trends toward a space occupied by Giuseppe Cardinal Siri in the '70s and '80s, with the exception that Siri was allowed to continue as a diocesan archbishop. Burke may find himself caught between two currents, unable to find his way upstream or to the shore.


  1. Interesting observation, Rad Trad, for like Siri, Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke is a Conservative during a time when the trials of the church required/require a counter-revolutionary but both were/are too respectful of he who led/leads the revolution.

    Burke has publicly contradicted himself in less than a year via a vis this exhortation first warning than any change in discipline would mean a change in doctrine and now claiming the change in discipline doesn't exist and so Al is no biggie

  2. Our Pope and Our Cross is a heretic and and AntiChrist

    To assert, as does Pope Francis, that such charity is unmerited, unconditional, and gratuitous is simply a form of the Lutheran heresy, which views justification, and the perseverance in God’s friendship as totally unmerited by man, and as not requiring the cooperation of man in virtue and the performance of good works. In my article The Dream of Nabuchodonosor, I quoted 21 Canons of the Council of Trent’s Decree on Justification which condemn Luther’s position, and detail at every stage of man’s justification – from preparation for conversion to final perseverance – the absolute necessity of the cooperation of man’s free fill and the performance of good works in the attainment of, and perseverance in, God’s friendship, and the possession of that supernatural charity which we call sanctifying grace.
