We now know that Emeritus Pope Benedict's intimate friend Cardinal Muller's attempt to take control of the narrative of Amoris Laetitia, which is that it and the Pope can't change the Divine Law on divorced and remarried receiving Holy Communion, appears to be failing.
Unfortunately, he was and is being blacked out by the Vatican according to Vatican expert Sandro Magister.
The strategy of the Vatican news and worldwide news apparatus is to ignore him and other faithful Catholic leaders like Bishop Schneider and Robert Speamann.
On the positive side, we mustn't forget that even Francis' intimate associate Archbishop Fernandez admitted that the majority of the cardinals, who are figuratively in hiding, don't like what the Pope is doing and probably wouldn't reelect him.
But, they appear to be afraid of being Burked to Catholic Siberia.
They are in hiding like the Apostles were after Jesus' resurrection and ascension into heaven.
What can we do?
Remember, the Apostles after they prayed nine days with Mary, Mother of the Church, got the actual graces to face death fearlessly.
I'm going to begin a simple novena to Mary under her title of Our Lady of Fatima starting today.
This novena is prayed to call on her spouse the Holy Spirit to send actual graces to all faithful bishops and Catholics to pray and then to be fearless in whichever way God calls them to act in the crisis caused by Amoris Laetitia.
I ask everyone who reads this to pray one Hail Mary for nine days for these intentions.
