Neo-Cons Go Gallican! Are All of the Neo-Cons Adopting Gallicanism and Clustering Around Champion Cardinal Burke? His Statement On a Papal Infallibility that Is Not Infallible. Things are getting INTENSE folks!



From OnePeterFive:
Cardinal Burke – who is himself a canon lawyer and the former head of the Apostolic Signatura – makes in his talk a review of the canonical tradition and the teaching of the First Vatican Council on papal primacy, always emphasizing that the power of the pope must be for the good of souls and in union with the Sacred Tradition. At the end he first quotes the Letter to the Galatians where St. Paul says “even if an angel from heaven should preach to you another Gospel, let him be anathema,” and then also the canon lawyer Gratian, who said that the Pope cannot be judged by anyone – unless of course he deviates from the faith.
Cardinal Burke expressed his hope that his talk “can help you to understand the necessity of, and at the same time the great prudence, which must take place in the exercise of the fullness of power of the Roman Pontiff, in order to safeguard and promote the good of the Universal Church.” He continued, saying:
According to Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition, the successor of Saint Peter enjoys a power which is universal, ordinary, and immediate over all of the faithful. He is the supreme judge of the faithful, and there is no higher human authority over him, not even that of an ecumenical council. To the Pope belongs the power and authority to define doctrines and condemn errors, to promulgate and abrogate laws, to act as judge in all matters of faith and morals, to decree and impose punishments, to name and, if necessary, to remove pastors. Because such power comes from God himself, it is limited by natural law and by divine law, which are expressions of the truth and of the eternal and immutable goodness which come from God, are fully revealed in Christ and have been uninterruptedly transmitted in the Church. Therefore, any expression of doctrine or praxis which is not in conformity with Divine Revelation, contained in the Sacred Scriptures and in the Tradition of the Church, cannot be considered an authentic exercise of the Apostolic or Petrine ministry and ought to be refuted by the faithful. As Saint Paul declared: “I am amazed that you are so quickly forsaking the one who called you by the grace of Christ for a different gospel (not that there is another). But there are some who are disturbing you and wish to pervert the Gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel other than the one that we preached to you, let that one be accursed!” (Galatians 1: 6-8)
As Cardinal Burke points out, we as Catholics “must always teach and defend the fullness of power which Christ wanted to confer upon His Vicar on earth.” Yet, we sometimes “must teach and defend that power within the [realm of the] teaching of the Church.” Cardinal Burke ends his talk with words from the Decretal of Gratian:
“No mortal should have the audacity to reproach a pope because of his faults, because he who has the right to judge all men cannot be judged by anyone, unless he must be called to order for having deviated from the faith; all the faithful pray insistently for his perpetual position, inasmuch as they consider that his salvation more greatly depends on his safety [from any deviation from the faith]” (Decretum Magistri Gratiani. Concordia Discordantium Canonum, 1a, dist. 40, c. 6, Si papa; Item ex gestis Bonifacii Martyris). [emphasis added

Here is a link to Michael Matt's statement that it would be a "miracle" ---- apparently the best that a Catholic can hope for --- to get Papa Burke! Is "Tradition" going to be split by the likes of Cardinal Burke? Unbelievably that seems to be happening. 
Here Michael also speaks of a Catholic Church which is anti-Catholic. There is no way any of this is in accord with traditional Catholic thinking --- NEITHER THAT OF. FRANCIS, CARDINAL BURKE, OR MICHAEL MATT. I am sorry, it just cannot be. We are letting the current situation draw us into heresy and into a denial of the basics of what it means to be Catholic.
