Cardinal Carlo Caffarra Letter to the Pope: "Moved by our conscience …».

LETTER OF CARDINAL CARLO CAFFARRA THE POPE: "INSPIRED BY OUR CONSCIENCE ..."

.

We reproduce the letter that Cardinal Carlo Caffarra sent in April to the Supreme Pontiff, and that after two months was made public. Theologian Carlo Caffarra is recognized as the most authoritative expert on issues related to family and life. The Holy Father Giovanni Paolo II considered it a point of reference and again made use of his cooperation in the preparation of important acts of the Magisterium. Even the Pope Francis I has for Him estimate, not least because of his fidelity to the Successor of Peter, but unfortunately, The Holy Father is in a “cage” in which it was put by some obscure characters that surround it and from which unfortunately is not easy to get out …

the Pope Francis I and Cardinal Carlo Caffarra

The recent letter Cardinal Carlo Caffarra, Archbishop Emeritus of Bologna, He was very touched Father Giovanni Cavalcoli and me, not on an emotional level, but in spiritual depth, as well as the theological and pastoral plan. Both deeply we value Cardinal Carlo Caffarra and knowing what we know is a genuine man of God, an authentic model of faith, a high caliber theologian.

.

These days there is little to smile, but with a devoted affection expression, we want to say to Cardinal: "Father Cardinal, the day when as we all, she will respond for their actions before God, maybe you will have to answer for some thoughts, for certain words, for some works … but not for the omissions! And maybe - though none of us can interpret and even more so in advance of God's judgment -, we like to hope that his manly, Pastoral and praiseworthy escape from complacent omissions, will result from the Supreme Judge, full forgiveness for any sin as we all in thoughts, word and deed. Indeed, escape from those omissions in which not only a large part of the episcopate has fallen, but on which it has its own characterized pavido act and operate pastoral, It is on his part an act of true heroism for which Christ the Bridegroom of the Church to make big merit ".

Cardinal Carlo Caffarra during Mass

The public talk by Cardinal Carlo Caffarra is a far cry from the mention of those in closed high prelatizi salons launch fires and lightning on say and not to say the Holy Father, on the confusion in which the Successor of Peter has slid us with some of his ambiguous expressions. The mention of Cardinal Carlo Caffarra is moved by Free heroic love for Christ's Church, while the drawing-room gossip of certain bishops and curial is only due to a hatred that stems mainly from careers and not granted charges. Indeed, if some of them the Holy Father Francis had set the coveted cardinal's hat, Today they argue that The joy of love is the greatest document of the pontifical magisterium of the last five hundred years, and that a Pope like Francis I have not seen since the days when the Word of God Incarnate walked over the waters of ancient Palestine lakes.

Cardinal Carlo Caffara

In men of God as Carlo Caffarra, we see that light of our Christological future hope before which we express faith more than ever: "I think the Church one, saint, catholic and apostolic ". Instead, before the politicians in Business, which are upstream of those responsible for the increasingly untenable situation in which we pour, we can only say: "It preserves the Church one, saint, catholic and apostolic "by the immense damage it went from defenders of the values “political” non-negotiable, that at the time when the wind pulling on the other hand, They could see already the cardinal about the defense of the values “political” non-negotiable. Characters whose life and work has been a life of slavery entirely conditioned by the desire to achieve a great seat of an archbishop and a cardinal's hat; bishops that at best have left diocese the collapse composed today by priests divided and contentious; bishops with their priests have been most evident with a more or less comparable to that of a watermelon paternity; bishops who before God and history will be judged as managers and childbirth fathers of today's bad episcopate, born to reactive mechanisms - after all understandable -, Italian episcopate facts emerge from the devastating subjects that preceded them yesterday …

… it is true, Today we have an episcopate unfortunately formed by several elements imbued with the worst heresies modernist, but, even looking into a possible tragedy “positive outcome”, we can at least say that we no longer have those politiconi bishops and their priests in crisis abandoned the priesthood, they were in the House and talk to Gianni Letta to see if he, too, a good word, could facilitate their transfer to the archbishopric of Milan or the Patriarch of Venice. And having to choose among the bishops who came and went from the living rooms of the worst political award-investigated and those who today, perhaps for conformity or for convenience, They speak only of refugees obsessively, Alas, I would be forced to Christian intellectual honesty to choose these seconds, starting from santegidino S. AND. Mons. Matteo Maria Zuppi and from’child prodigy S.It is the school of Bologna. Mons. Corrado Lorefice, kissing one and the other ten times the hand. And with each hand kiss I would try to erase from the memory nefarious recent memory of their predecessors defenders “political” non-negotiable values, that before the orgiastic feasts of Silvio Berlusconi made no bones to declare that … "One can not judge from his private life Prime Minister, but by his acts of government ", adding a reprimand to many Italians who dared even to remain outraged by certain feasts red light, that "The outrage is not a Christian sentiment". And today these bishops, retirees and as they say beautifully trumpet, They are the ones who most of all clamoring as parlor lions on The joy of love and remarried divorcees, while Silvio Berlusconi, that was judged "not on his private life but by his acts of government", Today is eighty years old and as a third mate just thirty years old girl, It was in favor of all the anti-Christian legislation, and it is more or less pathetic as they were and are certain defenders bishops "political"Non-negotiable values, behind which only they hoped for a cardinal, thank God never come, while their darling, Berlusconi, like a tree we recognized all of them from the fruits that gave …

Is there any spare virgin vilified who intends to complain because today we have an Italian episcopate that reactively, and also understandably, It is for the most part all skewed to the left?

Most Holy Father,

.

it is with some trepidation that I address Your Holiness, During these days of the Easter season. I do so on behalf of Cardinals: Walter Brandmüller, Raymond L. Burke, Joachim Meisner, and myself.

.

We would like first of all renew our total commitment and our unconditional love to the Chair of Peter, and for your august person, in which we recognize the Successor of Peter and Vicar of Jesus: the "sweet Christ on earth", as he put St. Caterina da Siena. There is minimally belongs the position of those who consider a vacancy in the See of Peter, nor to those who also want to attribute to others the responsibility of indivisible office petrino. We are motivated only by the awareness of serious responsibility from the office Cardinals: be advisers to the Successor of Peter in his ministry sovereign. And the Sacramento Episcopate, that "he has placed us as bishops to nourish the Church, He has purchased with his own blood " [At 20, 28].

.

The 19 September 2016 we delivered to Your Holiness and to the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith five dubia, [Ed. cf. WHO] asking her to resolve uncertainties and to clarify some points of the Post-Synodal love joy.

.

Having received no response from Your Holiness, we came to the decision to ask you, respectfully and humbly, Hearing, together if it will appeal to Your Holiness. We enclose, as is the practice, Hearing a sheet in which we expose the two points on which we wish to entertain us with you.

.

Most Holy Father,

.

It is now one year after the publication of love joy. In this period they were publicly interpretations of certain passages objectively ambiguous of the Post-Synodal, not differ from, but contrary to the permanent Magisterium of the Church. Although the Prefect of the Doctrine of the Faith has repeatedly stated that the Church's teaching has not changed, They have appeared numerous statements of individual bishops, Cardinals, and even of Episcopal Conferences, approving what the Magisterium of the Church has never approved. Not only access to the Holy Eucharist of those who objectively and openly living in a situation of serious sin, and intend to stay there, but also a conception of moral conscience contrary to the Church's Tradition. And so it is happening - oh how sad to say! - that what is sin in Poland is well in Germany, what is forbidden in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia it is permitted in Malta. And so on. This brings to mind the bitter realization of B. Pascal: “Justice on this side of the Pyrenees, injustice beyond; Justice on the left bank of the river, injustice on the right bank”.

.

Numerous competent lay, deeply love with the Church and solidly loyal to the Holy See, They have turned to their pastors and to Your Holiness, to be confirmed in the Holy Doctrine on the three sacraments of Marriage, Confession and the Eucharist. And in these days, in Rome, six lay people from every continent have proposed a much frequented Study Seminar, the significant title: "To clarify".

.

Faced with this serious situation, in which many Christian communities are splitting, we feel the weight of our responsibility, and our conscience pushes us to ask humbly and respectfully Audience.

.

Want Your Holiness remember us in your prayers, The as we assure you that we will do in our. And we ask for the gift of His Apostolic Blessing.

  1. Great as always p. Ariel!

    The card. Caffara (and the other three cardinal of “Dubia” and the card. Sarah) are the latest MEN WITH BALLS remained in a world and in a Church “identity disorders” and “genere di disforie”!

    Today we have many bishops-Judas who sold the church for much less than thirty pieces of silver, between career advancement and “political balancing acts”, who never cared nothing about the non-negotiable principles, beginning / end of life, indissolubility of marriage, the beauty of the liturgy that gives glory to God….perhaps because in reality he never cared much neither of God nor of the true good of man!

    And we young people trained in the school of the great values ​​of Saint Giovanni Paolo II (he was a man MANLY!) we like CHILDREN WITHOUT FATHERS, without a recognized ecclesial space in which to grow our vocazioni..ma, perhaps, considering the age of many “respected confratelli” it's just a matter of time, as someone says, “the time is greater than the space” and the “process” triggered in our hearts by GP2 teachings they are already well underway and can not be stopped!

    thank…

  2. Dear Fathers,

    I think I do the part of “virgin vilified” if I say that I did not like the prelates that hung right, as well as I do not like the prelates left hanging… Right your viewing episode Berlusconi, as the cav. person is totally unreliable.

    However I see a difference: when it was defended by some bishops, had not yet “ditched” the defense of certain traditional values; some, hypocritically and electoral interests, because you see that these values ​​are not his. The bishops with the opposite slope, instead, defend left-wing politicians in the moment they stubbornly demolish any residual value. You can accuse the first to have turned a blind eye, and maybe both, and they had to be vigilant; but those of today see a great time, and approve.

  3. The CRICKET HAS AGAIN OUT OF VASE MADE!!

    http://www.cittadellaeditrice.com/munera/la-sindrome-di-stoccolma-dei-4-cardinali-sessantottini/

    Is it possible that among the readers of this blog there are no cardinal, Bishops, academic authorities who want to take the rag of a disciplinary action toward one, calling himself a theologian, never misses an opportunity to insult, despise, demolishing people who gave his life for the Church before he was born?!?!?! But really there are still people who want to buy his books or follow its course right after all the scandal that his way?!

    If there is any AUTHORITY’ (VIRILE) LISTENING please, FINALLY SOMEONE INTERVENE AND STOPS!!!

  4. Yes, This is really the most “fantastic” and special Church never seen on Earth! To go from mortal sin to the state of grace is no longer needed to repent, just move the region and all will magically solve! A new and exciting gift to meet the itching of sinners. Free and mobile sinned…

  5. Thanks to the clear words, sincere and free from hypocritical glazes, type “you know who I'm talking about”.
    Thanks for the clarity of Facts.
    Thanks to the strenuous defense of the true Church to which we all owe obedience, It is aware that the Mystical Body of Christ, true God and true man (and only write these words is the tremor) certain and sure of his victory over evil.
    At last, Thanks to Christ's witnesses as the card. Caffara and his other fellow cardinals who had the courage of true followers (and friends) of Christ.

  6. I understand well your maneuvering limits, say, however, that “The Holy Father is in a "cage" in which it was put by some obscure characters that surround him and from which unfortunately is not easy to get out ...” It is frankly not credible, considered the personality of the Holy Father, which he has now at his side whom he wanted. Others are marginalized. Or am I wrong?
    With estimates,
    Licio Zuliani

    1. Dear Licio the reverend fathers of this island support this theory, They know not to further aggravate the situation. Make it a disservice which hurts the salvation of souls. The private doctor is demolishing everything. What a scandal visiting the tomb of Don Milan, even he would like to emulate him by inviting priests to do the same. From 2013 we have such a large amount of objective elements (written, homilies, speeches, video) to define an apostate. Now you wonder who's talking :”And’ the Unnamed, if you pronounce his name come censored, just as he acts”. Dear Fathers of this island, have charity to say the whole truth is at stake is the salvation of souls that you will answer before the judgment seat of Christ. No one can be sure that the sun is a grain of salt.

      1. Reverend P. Ariel, the rock on which Christ built his Church does not need to be unhinged by anyone, He is doing it by herself. E 'surprising his sophism, the ability to remove the speaker from the essential dispersing in a thousand streams. The reality is not what I think it is, It enjoys autonomy provided outside the subject. She knows full well the difference between Judas and Peter, between the sinner and the wicked. His mental theory does not hold water: by the 2013 the last event: (http://w2.vatican.va/content/francesco/it/speeches/2017/june/documents/papa-francesco_20170620_don-lorenzo-milani.html) we are in front of objective facts, not to "I think", in my opinion", "we think". Another one is a sinner and the other is a wrecker of the Church, His work must be stopped, He is doing a service entrusted by Christ backwards. THE FACTS ARE DOCUMENTED AND ARE PART of so-called ACTS OF THE APOSTOLIC SEE, They are the reality that is outside of us, like the sun and the grain of salt. The Pope can give in many ways among which is also to carry out the ministry backwards. For her two plus two always seems to do 10, This is against the obstinacy…

        1. There are only two possible cases:
          1. do not know Mt. 16.18 where is it written: “And I tell you: You are Peter and on this rock I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.”
          2. do not believe the words of Christ.

        2. Even if they “objective facts”, What would show these “objective facts”? That the Pope takes blunders? What the Pope did not know out of the "progressive and revolutionary narrative” of Vatican II? What did his work does nothing but precipitate a crisis that was brewing for decades? So what? This does not prove that we are faced with a deeply heretical Pope that the Holy Spirit has abandoned to his fate, since this is impossible.

          What is “surprising”, instead, and to say, is as certain guardians of orthodoxy forget the fundamentals of the faith. What does she know of the designs of Providence? Would not be with lei, for instance, imprudence and ambiguities of this Pope should not serve just to finally push the modernist tide to reveal its true face no more pretense? And maybe if it will not just be the "subcomandante Bergoglio", who as Pope he can only meekly surrender sooner or later the truth, sconfessarla even if it were to come to a catastrophic and yet beneficial clarification? This would not be the most eloquent of disclaimers, having regard to its personality and its history?

    2. I would echo the difficulty in understanding her to others (with different shades, as @aquila ) express the continued possible interpretation of Don Ariel and rev. Prof. Cavalcoli on the papal behavior, in this article more explicit with the metaphor of “cage“.

      I'm learning to appreciate the generosity and courage of the Catholic-Christian testimony of these two reverend priests who, especially the latter for obvious reasons, experience of ecclesiastical matters vastly superior to my.

      For this I feel, baptized as simple and devoid of a personal experience of customs and traditions of the ecclesiastical circles and sources of information that are not public ones, very embarrassed by reading the two make the relationship between Pope Francis and misfortunes in the rapid development in the temporal government of the Church, reading based on the hypothesis of Pope Francis, prisoner in somewhat of a mob of prelates and lay their cronies and / or inept, a buffoon, humanly inadequate in its chief prosecutor, who unwittingly does or leave it the disasters that also on this site are effectively analyzed and deprecated.

      I can not understand what the persistence in this case is due to wishful thinking and how the knowledge of non-public facts.

      By now accumulated more than four years of overabundant (given the media coverage of Pope Francis) news reports about the Church and its encounter with which the plausibility of various hypotheses on the role of the Pope in those facts and the aforementioned optimistic hypotheses in a couple of years I felt weak and I think now adoptable (based on facts in the public domain) only unshakable faith and metaphysics no longer rationally credible in any good worldly court.

      This comment of my hypotheses de The island of Patmos on the relationship between the papal will and what they are made in public by combining himself and those who have positions of power in Catholic institutions independent of any judgment on the good faith of Pope Francis: the judge of that is only the Almighty.
