Pope's Close Advisor Says Francis Probably Wouldn't be Reelected

On May 11, Maike Hickson at the onepeterfive website said on May 10, 2015, the Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera had published an interview with one of Pope Francis closest advisors Archbishop Victor Fernández.
"In spite of his denial of a larger opposition against some of Pope Francis’ attempts to change the Church, Archbishop Fernández admits that, today, probably a Conclave would not re-elect Pope Francis. He said, when asked about a possible re-election: 'I don’t know, possibly not. But it happened.'  "Here we have it. The majority – and the majority of the public media! – are behind the pope. 'His opponents are weaker than what you think.' This is exactly what we are witnessing right now. Almost nobody reports on Cardinal Müller’s resistance."  
Muller resistance was to take away the narrative of Amoris Laetitia from the German bishops and Francis' Kasperite associates in his statement that was blacked out.
He clearly put everyone on notice, including the Pope and those close to Francis.They are misreading what Amoris Laetitia did and can do if they say it allows Holy Communion to the divorced and remarried. Muller said:
"The Church has no power to change Divine Law. Not even a pope or council can change that."
Put even more simply:
Muller said no.
Pope Francis you cannot allow Holy Communion to the divorced and remarried.Even you and a council together cannot change Divine Law and so even you and a council together cannot allow Holy Communion to the divorced and remarried.
Pope Francis is a politician.
He appears to fear schism so as Fr Z and Forte say he uses ambiguity. He fears Benedict coming out directly against Amoris Laetitia.
Muller and Spaemann are Benedict's intimate friends.Is Benedict behind the chess moves of his friends?
Francis, the politician, has to suppose it is likely.
In chess and politics when in doubt do nothing and wait to see what develops.
Pray for Muller, Benedict and all those heroes behind the scenes who are fighting by prayer and/or action for Divine Law and the Catholic Church which is Jesus' beloved bride.
