Are These The Plans Behind Matt's "Uniting of the Clans." Cardinal Burke on the Plans for the SSPX. Well Hasn't the Other "Clan" the FSSP Been Preaching for Decades "Obedience" as the Highest Virtue?
Cardinal Burke: "Oops! How did that slip out?" Here is what Cardinal Burke said on June 15, 2012 --- and what he would still say today, no doubt --- "There will have to be a change in the way of thinking and acting by which the OBEDIENCE to the Holy Father (Benedict at the time, Francis now) becomes much more concrete, because they have not been during these past decades. The challenge of OBEDIENCE is in the Church, there are others who have other ideas and approaches whom the Holy Father calls to OBEDIENCE and so I think we can all learn from this, with Catholic Faith and the Sacraments that OBEDIENCE can grow, but it is at the heart of our life in the Church." How many times can he say OBEDIENCE?
