The Pope’s most recent scandal brought out all of the usual suspects as defenders, viz., the neo-Catholics, neo-ultramontanists and Ostrich-Catholics. I warned them that their eager toleration of error and active participation in the conspiracy would come back to bite them. Who could have anticipated this little gem from the Pope’s good friend in Canada:
“Pope Francis breaks Catholic traditions whenever he wants, because he is “free from disordered attachments.” Our Church has indeed entered a new phase: with the advent of this first Jesuit pope, it is openly ruled by an individual rather than by the authority of Scripture alone or even its own dictates of tradition plus Scripture.” Father Rosica, speaking of the Pope’s unlimited power
By disordered attachments, he means of course, the Catholic faith, as taught by all of his predecessors and all the ecumenical councils. The Vatican is rushing to remove the quote from all the online sources, which of course is not only laughable but only proves that someone in the curia is aware that these things are not supposed to be said in public.
