Bishop Schneider channels Bishop Melchior Cano:

 

 

Bishop Athanasius Schneider, auxiliary bishop of Astana in Kazakhstan, said in an interview with Michael Matt of The Remnant newspaper that “the true friends of the Pope” are those cardinals bishops and laymen “who express their public concern about these very important issues, about the state of confusion in the Church. They are really the friends of the Pope.”

He called the concerns and calls for clarity, “an act of charity towards the Pope.” He added that he was convinced that when the Pope faces his judgment before God, “he will be thankful to those” cardinals, bishops and lay people who called on him to offer clarity.

Archbishop Schneider said that those who perform “adulation of the Pope” and “deny the evidence” that ambiguity in the Pope’s teachings is causing confusion are not helping the Pope nor themselves when they will face their final judgment. 

Regarding those who tell the Pope, “It’s all okay,” despite the “disastrous situation,” the archbishop warned that at their judgment God will ask them “what have you done when there was confusion, why have you not raised your voice to defend the truth?”

 

Go here to read it rest.  Almost 500 years ago Melchior Cano, a theologian at the Council of Trent, said it all:

“Peter has no need of our lies or flattery. Those who blindly and indiscriminately defend every decision of the Supreme Pontiff are the very ones who do most to undermine the authority of the Holy See—they destroy instead of strengthening its foundations.”

  1. As the evidence against Pope Francis accumulates let us hope that more Cardinals and Bishops will speak out. Regardless, Bishop Schneider will go down in history–what remains of it—as a hero of our times.

  2. Bravo to Bishop Schneider for speaking the truth. He has a very interesting family history. His parents were ethnically German living in Odessa when they were exiled to the Stans in Central Asia. The family did live in Germany for a few years. Then back to Kazakhstan. So what’s Pope Francis going to do if Bishop Schneider continues to bravely speak out? Send him to Siberia?
