New Statement: „We Are True Friends Of Francis”

Cardinal Burke and Bishop Schneider issued a further three-page “Clarification About the Meaning of Fidelity to the Supreme Pontiff.”

In the text they notice an “almost general" doctrinal confusion in the Church regarding Communion for adulterers, and the approval of homosexual fornication and paganism.

Burke and Schneider call on Pope Francis to “unequivocally reject the evident doctrinal errors” in the Amazon Synod’s working document and to not abolish celibacy.

They call Francis’ Abu Dhabi document and the errors in the Synod’s document “a betrayal” of Christ and the Catholic Faith.

In their text they also justify why they speak up [thus cornering themselves] by referring to their consciences, the Bible and Saints, and criticising an atmosphere of papolatry.

Burke and Schneider miss “in our days” [read: in Francis' Pontificate] the possibility of an honest theological debate because they receive as a response only “sentimental arguments” or “arguments from power”.

The two notice that their own "respectful expressions" are “immediately squelched” as being “against the Pope” or even “schismatic”.

However, they insist to be “true friends of Pope Francis” who have “a supernatural esteem” of Francis' person and office.

Whosoever will be saved, before all things it is necessary that he hold the catholic faith. Which faith unless every one do keep whole and undefiled, without doubt he shall perish everlastingly.

Whosoever will be saved, before all things it is necessary that he hold the catholic faith. Which faith unless every one do keep whole and undefiled, without doubt he shall perish everlastingly. And the catholic faith is this: that we worship one God in Trinity, and Trinity in Unity; neither confounding the Persons, nor dividing the Essence. For there is one Person of the Father; another of the Son; and another of the Holy Ghost. But the Godhead of the Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, is all one; the Glory equal, the Majesty coeternal. Such as the Father is; such is the Son; and such is the Holy Ghost. The Father uncreated; the Son uncreated; and the Holy Ghost uncreated. The Father unlimited; the Son unlimited; and the Holy Ghost unlimited. The Father eternal; the Son eternal; and the Holy Ghost eternal. And yet they are not three eternals; but one eternal. As also there are not three uncreated; nor three infinites, but one uncreated; and one infinite. So likewise the Father is Almighty; the Son Almighty; and the Holy Ghost Almighty. And yet they are not three Almighties; but one Almighty. So the Father is God; the Son is God; and the Holy Ghost is God. And yet they are not three Gods; but one God. So likewise the Father is Lord; the Son Lord; and the Holy Ghost Lord. And yet not three Lords; but one Lord. For like as we are compelled by the Christian verity; to acknowledge every Person by himself to be God and Lord; So are we forbidden by the catholic religion; to say, There are three Gods, or three Lords. The Father is made of none; neither created, nor begotten. The Son is of the Father alone; not made, nor created; but begotten. The Holy Ghost is of the Father and of the Son; neither made, nor created, nor begotten; but proceeding. So there is one Father, not three Fathers; one Son, not three Sons; one Holy Ghost, not three Holy Ghosts. And in this Trinity none is before, or after another; none is greater, or less than another. But the whole three Persons are coeternal, and coequal. So that in all things, as aforesaid; the Unity in Trinity, and the Trinity in Unity, is to be worshipped. He therefore that will be saved, let him thus think of the Trinity.

Furthermore, it is necessary to everlasting salvation; that he also believe faithfully the Incarnation of our Lord Jesus Christ. For the right Faith is, that we believe and confess; that our Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is God and Man; God, of the Substance [Essence] of the Father; begotten before the worlds; and Man, of the Substance [Essence] of his Mother, born in the world. Perfect God; and perfect Man, of a reasonable soul and human flesh subsisting. Equal to the Father, as touching his Godhead; and inferior to the Father as touching his Manhood. Who although he is God and Man; yet he is not two, but one Christ. One; not by conversion of the Godhead into flesh; but by assumption of the Manhood into God. One altogether; not by confusion of Substance [Essence]; but by unity of Person. For as the reasonable soul and flesh is one man; so God and Man is one Christ; Who suffered for our salvation; descended into hell; rose again the third day from the dead. He ascended into heaven, he sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty, from whence he will come to judge the living and the dead. At whose coming all men will rise again with their bodies; And shall give account for their own works. And they that have done good shall go into life everlasting; and they that have done evil, into everlasting fire. This is the catholic faith; which except a man believe truly and firmly, he cannot be saved.
To be friends with the one who has declared war on God is to be a TRAITOR.
St. Cyprian
"To adhere to a false Bishop of Rome is to be out of communion with the Church."
What Cardinal Burke and Bishop Schneider probably mean is they are the true friends of Saint Francis. ;-)

A TRUE FRIEND IS THE ONE THAT TELL YOU WHEN YOU ARE DOING SOMETHING WRONG SO YOU CAN CORRECT IT. THEY ARE REALLY FRIENDS OF BERGOGLIO. WHILE COCOPALMERIO PAROLIN PAGLIA JAMES MARTIN RODRIGUEZ MARADIAGA AND ALL THE PEOPLE CLOSE TO BERGOGLIO ARE ADVISING HIM NOT TO REPENT AND TO KEEP OFFENDING GOD.

A TRUE FRIEND IS THE ONE THAT TRYS TO MAKE YOU REPENT YOUR SINS . THE ONE THAT TRYS TO GET YOU CLOSE TO GOD.
and this is the resistance... They don't even oppose Francis. They are "true friends" with Francis. I don't know what angers me more, these clowns or the evil clown.

Does anybody know why Pope Benedict is silent in all of this??
he is listening to the Spirit and obeying and not interfering with what God allows, i think.

Listening to the spirit, but to sit back and not defend the true faith?
Because he is just as guilty as Bergoglio.

Because Benedict was one of the modernist leaders of Vatican II. If you think that Benedict is a traditionalist like Pope Pius X you are mistaken. He works both sides of the aisle.
Be a true friend of Benedict, for once? ppbxvi.org
