Cardinal Robert Sarah is a faithful prelate who did much to oppose the wreckage of the Magisterium that was the purpose of the two sin-nods on the family. This blog and others have been shining the light on theses sin-nods and their resultant mess that is named Amoris Laetitia. I have renamed it Amoralis Lamentia.
It seems that His Eminence is beginning to share some of the fate of Cardinal Burke, another faithful prelate. Cardinal Sarah is currently Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments. He had been scheduled to open the academic year for the John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and the Family on October 27 in Rome, but the pope basically expelled him from that role, saying he'd do it himself. This comes after the pope apppointed two progressive prelates to head that institute. That institute had also opposed the progressive juggernaut at the two sin-nods.
In August, I wrote about one of those progressive prelates, Archbishop Paglia. His appointment is solid evidence that the pope does indeed intend - as stated in Amoralis Lamentia - to allow divorced Catholics who are living in adultery to commit the mortal sin of sacrilege by receiving Holy Communion without the requisite repentance from mortal sin. In that post, I wrote about another progressive prelate who has done damage to the faith - Bishop Farrell. I will be addressing him in the next paragraph.
The pope just announced that he named 17 new cardinals, to be elevated on November 19th. Three of them are US prelates and one of them is Bishop Farrell. Another is - Archbishop Blaise Cupich of Chicago. Yes, this Cupich! As you can see, he has occasioned a whole series of blog posts with his dissidence and insults to the Faith. Read that anthology and consider the progression of events.
The third US prelate is Archbishop Joseph Tobin of Indianapolis. In January 2015, we learned that a Knight of Columbus council in his diocese rented their hall to lesbians so they could celebrate their sinful relationship. We contacted him to have this debacle stopped; we heard crickets from him. He is not to be confused with Bishop Thomas Tobin of Providence RI, who is a faithful prelate.
I just touched upon the three US cardinal-designates. I'd be willing to bet that the fourteen from other countries are just as problematic.
There can be no doubt that the pope is deliberately stacking the College of Cardinals with progressive cronies while marginalizing truly faithful Princes of the Church.
