Is this an end to it?

The headless Cardinal of Doom
Cardinal Muller, of the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith, seems to have settled the question of Amoris Laetitia, of the reception of holy communion for the divorced and remarried. Here.

Actually it is a much deeper question about whether we can simply ignore Church teaching. Or if we can change the teaching of the Church, or even of Christ.

Baby Cardinal Bird
Mouth open to receive the truth or God
or whatever
All without the response of the Pope. So that is good. No one loses face. And the Church and truth wins.

So I'm waiting for the German Bishops to withdraw their statements at any moment. And the Maltese. And certain Americans. And Argentinians. I expect Cardinal Nichols and all of our Bishops to make a clear statement to follow Christ, the Church and Muller.

The Cardinal Avenger
rooting out injustice and bad doctrine
After all, if Muller is not right, the Pope should immediately sack him and make everything clear.
And if he is right then all this nonsense of 'but this is what the Pope really wants [going against Christ, 2000 years of Christian theology, the plain teaching of Saints - St John Paul II springs to mind]' has to stop.

Phew. So that's settled.
