Many Happy Returns of yesterday, Eminence!
31 December, obit of Benedict XVI, was also the Birth Day of Gerhard Cardinal Mueller.
He deserves love and respect.
There does, however, seem to me a theological problem here.
We live at a time when there is some very fine teaching emerging from the Cardinal Bishops, Priests, and Deacons of the Holy Roman Church. But it is not coming from its Bishop, Jorge Bergoglio. On the contrary: it seems that PF continues to do as much as he can to subvert the Catholic Faith.
Matters would be less serious if PF contented himself with expressions of personal prejudices. So much more disturbing is the situation when the venom stored up through decades of personal nastiness spills over into personal detestations.
Are there considerations, arising from the authentic Paradosis, Traditio of the Roman Church, which would enable us to give a useful and watertight account of the situation in which to distinguish between the fine teaching of the Burkes and the Sarahs and the Muellers, and the corrupting expressions of the Pontiff's own embarrassing dicta?
But, meanwhile, eis polla ete Despota!
