As could be expected, the Vatican who is at the service of the oligarchs, stabbed those U.S. Catholic bishops in the back who advocate for denying President Biden and other pro-death “Catholic” politicians Holy Communion.
Abortion is the Holy Cow of the oligarchs and their media. Cardinal Luis Ladaria, the obsequious Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, wrote a May 7 letter, published by the US bishops’ CatholicNews.com, in which he urged the bishops to proceed "with caution" in their criticism of "Catholic" politicians supporting abortion, euthanasia, and other moral evils.
He claimed that an individual bishop may not "usurp" his authority in his diocese for a policy that would require "near unanimity" - as if Truth were decided by that.
According to Ladaria, it is “misleading” to present abortion and euthanasia as the "only" grave matters of Catholic morals which "demand the fullest level of accountability on the part of Catholics” - but nobody has done so.
He warned that a national policy would “only” be useful “if this would help the bishops maintain unity.” The Vatican is interested in such "unity" only when dealing with the oligarchs and their powerful media of which the Vatican is afraid.
The Vatican worry about "unity" suddenly disappears, when Francis and other Modernists launch their frequent polemics like in the case of Amoris Laetita and the attacks against former pro-life U.S. President Trump.
@Ultraviolet: your prediction is supported by the Vatican (not surprisingly)
Hate to back Cd Ladaria, but he is completely right about the local Bishop’s authority. Only a couple of very specific things are named by Rome as being granted to the USCCB’s authority. Everything else is either reserved to Rome or under the local ordinary. Wish the bishops would act on this and essentially disband the USCCB along with all of its funding and “charities”.
Agreed. We don’t want bishops conferences to have more power. I wonder whether Cardinal Ladaria would have intervened if the bishops were debating a general policy of toleration for sacrilegious communion. I don’t know the answer, but today’s Vatican gives me every indication that they back any policy that is in line with globalist objectives.
