‘Hostile takeover of the Church’

As reported by LifeSiteNews, Cardinal Muller claims the proposed 2023 Synod is ‘a hostile takeover’ of the Catholic Church. Of course, he is absolutely right. You only have to read the scribblings of apostates like Xavière Missionary Sister Nathalie Becquart, undersecretary at the Synod of Bishops’ general secretariat, and a special appointment of Bergoglio. See my previous comments about this faux sister who is entirely open about replacing the ‘clericalist Church’ with her inclusive feminist model where everyone (allegedly) gets a say. It’s the same Marxist con.


Cardinal Müller says Pope Francis’ Synod is a ‘hostile takeover of the Church’ in explosive interview

‘This is a way to undermine the Catholic faith,’ said Cardinal Gerhard Müller about the Synod on Synodality in some of his sharpest comments yet about direction of the Church under Pope Francis.

Raymond Wolfe, 7 October 2022.

(LifeSiteNews) – Cardinal Gerhard Müller ripped into the Synod on Synodality in some of his strongest comments yet about the direction of the Catholic Church under Pope Francis, describing the synodal process as a “hostile takeover” of the Church that threatens to “end” Catholicism.

In an explosive interview Thursday on EWTN’s The World Over, the former head of the Vatican’s highest doctrinal office condemned heterodox ideas expressed by Synod leadership and in synodal reports and slammed the initiative’s focus on “self-revelation” as opposed to the Catholic faith.

“This is a system of self-revelation and is the occupation of the Catholic Church” and “the hostile takeover of the Church of Jesus Christ, which is a column of the Revealed Truth,” Cardinal Müller told EWTN host Raymond Arroyo. “This has nothing to do with Jesus Christ, with the Triune God, and they think doctrine is only like a program of a political party who can change it according to their voters.”

Cardinals Burke and Brandmuller send open letter to the bishops

The National Catholic Register has produced and commented on an Open Letter by Cardinals Burke and Brandmuller addressed to the bishops attending the summit on clerical sexual abuse. Their message is ‘End the conspiracy of silence’. The key paragraphs are:

The Catholic world is adrift, and, with anguish, the question is asked: Where is the Church going?

Before the drift in process, it seems that the difficulty is reduced to that of the abuse of minors, a horrible crime, especially when it is perpetrated by a priest, which is, however, only part of a much greater crisis. The plague of the homosexual agenda has been spread within the Church, promoted by organized networks and protected by a climate of complicity and a conspiracy of silence. The roots of this phenomenon are clearly found in that atmosphere of materialism, of relativism and of hedonism, in which the existence of an absolute moral law, that is without exceptions, is openly called into question.

Sexual abuse is blamed on clericalism. But the first and primary fault of the clergy does not rest in the abuse of power but in having gone away from the truth of the Gospel. The even public denial, by words and by acts, of the divine and natural law, is at the root of the evil that corrupts certain circles in the Church.
