Both Fr Z and Pope Francis' chosen Special Secretary for the synods on marriage and family Archbishop Bruno Forte think that the Pope is backing the Kasperites.
On May 3, the website Zonoalocale reported Forte quoting Francis saying:
"If we speak explicitly about communion for the divorced and remarried you do not know the terrible mess we will make. So we won't speak plainly. In a way that the premises are there, then I will draw out the conclusions."(As reported on onepeterfive, translation from the Italian by Roberto Tommaso.)
Fr Zuhlsdord on Apri 16 posted:
"Pope Francis made it clear to everyone that he was backing the Kasper Proposal and Pope Francis knows how to use his absolute power!"
In the "battle between the Kasperites and Catholics," Fr Z in the same post showed the ultimate battle:
"The Trojan Horse " Forte "stealthily snuck into the Synod's Interim Report...of the 2014 Synod...was the moment when many of us knew that "homosexuality" was the bigger issue for the Kasperites."
We must continue to pray for Muller, Spaemann, Benedict and everyone in this battle with the Kasperites.
