No Catholic: Yesterday, Pope Francis announced the creation of 17 new cardinals. Among them there is not a single Catholic voice. Three of the 17 are radical liberals and killers of vocations: Archbishop Cupich of Chicago, Bishop Kevin Joseph Farrell, the prefect of the Dicastery for Laity, Family and Life, and Brussels Archbishop Jozef De Kesel.
Killer Cardinal: Cardinal-elect Jozef De Kesel is especially ruthless when it comes to fighting the Catholic faith. About homosexuals he said: “I respect the way they experience sexuality.” De Kesel is an enemy of celibacy and supports communion for persons living in open adultery. In July he killed the flourishing New-Rite Priestly Fraternity of the Holy Apostles founded by Fr Michel-Maria Zanotti-Sorkine.
Disloyalty Rewarded: Another American nominee is Indianapolis Archbishop Joseph William Tobin, the former secretary of the Congregation of Consecrated Life who publically opposed the Vatican’s visitation of the pro-abortion and pro-homosex U.S. Leadership Conference of Women Religious. Tobin called Amoris Laetitia a – quote – “amazing document.”
Enemy of Cardinal Müller: Among the new cardinals is also radical Archbishop Carlos Osoro Sierra of Madrid, Spain. He made headlines in April when he forbad Cardinal Müller, the Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, to present his new book about Christ, the Church, the family and society at the University of the Archdiocese. The original version of the book is in Spanish. Osoro claimed that the book is – quote – “against the Pope.” He later backtracked at least partially.
