I had a thought about what Card. Burke said. In his interview with a French TV station, His Eminence said, in answer to a question about the possibility that the Pope might persist (quite an assumption) in driving forward Communion for the divorced and remarried:
“Resisterò. Non posso fare altro…. I shall resist. I can do no other.”
As a happy ex-Lutheran, that had a familiar ring for about a nanosecond. “Hier stehe ich, ich kann nicht anders.”
Anyway… here’s the thought.
Will the National Schismatic Reporter (aka Fishwrap) now take Card. Burke to their bosom? Embrace him as their new hero?
After all, the Fishwrap‘s entire income and raison d’être has come from resisting every Pope since Paul VI.
