At St. Raymond of Penafort Church in Virginia (which if I am not mistaken was built by my my friend Fr. James Gould), another Raymond, Card. Burke, answered a question about the Five Dubia submitted by the Four Cardinals about the infamous objectively murky bits of Amoris laetitia.
The Dubia That Won’t Die.
So far, Pope Francis has not given any clear answer to the Five Dubia, though surrogates (e.g., Card. Schoenborn, Card. Coccopalmerio, et al.) have thrown up smoke screens and misdirections which we were supposed to accept as adequate explanations of the objectively murky bits. Others have flat out denied that there are any obscurities or ambiguities, which is, of course, absurd.
Yesterday, Card. Burke responded to a question about what might happen if the Holy Father does not provide responses to the Dubia. There is a video.
The question was, what would the Four Cardinals do if the Pope does not respond to the dubia.
The Cardinal answers that they would have to correct the situation in a manner that draws from the constant teaching of the Church on the issues raised by the dubia, and that this teaching would be made known for the good of souls.
In other words, the Cardinals would issue a public restatement of the constant teaching of the Church in regard to the issues covered by the Five Dubia. Does this mean all four of the Four Cardinals? Cardinal Burke did not say, at least in the video clip, above.
