Fr Dwight Longenecker: Cardinal Burke Knocks the Armchair Critics of Amoris Laetitia

Fr Dwight Longenecker: Cardinal Burke Knocks the Armchair Critics of Amoris Laetitia

He says clearly that those who set themselves up as critics of the Holy Father and the exhortation are wrong and are causing scandal. The behavior of the Catholic fundamentalists over the weekend has been scandalous. Some who believe themselves to be such good Catholics have used vile and obscene language about the Pope, trumpeted their prognostications of doom and gloom and in doing so have declared themselves not to be the best Catholics of all, but the worst.

Cardinal Burke is right to say they have caused scandal because their self righteous, ignorant and arrogant writings have caused others to stumble, lose faith in the church and to question the authority of the Holy Father and the church they say they love.

It's wonderful to see Cardinal Burke getting behind the Holy Father's beautiful apostolic exhortation.
