Neo-Catholics on the Kasper-Francis Agreement: 'There's Nothing to See Here'

The screaming headline in The Tablet today reads:  "Kasper says Pope Francis would like to see an ‘opening’ on church teaching on divorced and remarried." 

Tablet columnist Christopher Lamb notes that in an interview published in the forthcoming issue of The Tablet, Cardinal Walter Kasper says: “I hope the bishops will listen to the voice of people who live as divorced and remarried – the sensus fidei. They should listen and then next year they should decide what is possible and what is not possible.”

"In February this year Cardinal Kasper was asked by the Pope to address a consistory of cardinals on the subject of the family, ahead of the synod. His address suggested ways that the Church could allow divorced and remarried couples to receive communion while maintaining the indissolubility of marriage.

Since then a number of cardinals have expressed fierce opposition to such a move. Five of them - including Cardinal Gerhard Müller, prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith – have jointly authored a book where they express their disapproval.

But according to a report in the French Catholic newspaper La Croix the Pope is said to be “irritated” by their decision to publish so close to the synod."

Well, obviously, since Cardinal Kasper is the "Pope's Theologian", and Francis is the humblest and most misunderstood pope in history this is just a lot of traddy hooey.  For good, holy, solid, reasonable and rational Catholics it is abundantly obvious that everything is just fine in Rome.

So simmer down, Rad Trads.  Nothing to see here.
