Protocol

Reports suggest that PF is to receive Cardinal Marx in Rome (they will discuss one of the latest heterodox dodges of the German Episcopal Conference).

Absolutely right and much to be commended.

It is a long-standing tradition that Cardinals enjoy an automatic right of entree to the Roman Pontiff.

Except to the "Dubia cardinals", of course.

Paraphrasing Sir Humphery Appleby, one might say: “The current Vatican is primarily a social organization, not a religious one. So Cardinals need to be the sorts of chaps who speak properly and know on which side their bread is buttered.”
