Special Edition: Cardinals’ new declaration corrects rampant confusion in the Church

Cardinal Raymond Burke and Bishop Athanasius Schneider, together with several other bishops, have issued a public declaration of truths of the faith to remedy the “almost universal doctrinal confusion and disorientation” endangering the spiritual health and eternal salvation of souls in the Church today. Some of the 40 truths which are elucidated in the declaration implicitly reference statements made by Pope Francis, while others relate to points of confusion that have arisen or intensified during the current pontificate. Still others address moral errors in society that are gravely harming lives, as much of the hierarchy stands by.

Vatican’s former doctrine chief: Contraception is ‘intrinsically bad,’ Church can never allow it

Cardinal Muller has been called by his detractors the "#1 enemy of the Pope" for issuing a “manifesto of Faith” that some say reads as a correction of Pope Francis. The former Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith has not stopped speaking out in defense of truths of the Catholic faith — now under assault from within — despite being asked to step down from his post by Pope Francis in 2017. Today, on Episode 12 of The John-Henry Westen Show, I'm speaking with Cardinal Muller about his “manifesto of Faith” and what it means today for a cardinal to fulfill his duty to advise the pope. Join us as Cardinal Muller shines a ray of clarity on the unprecedented crisis that is unfolding in the Church under Pope Francis’ watch.

Pope’s lack of clarity is a sign of the end times: chatting with Cardinal Eijk

In May of 2018, Cardinal William Eijk of the Netherlands, said the Pope's lack of clarity regarding intercommunion reminded him of "The Church's ultimate trial. Before Christ’s second coming the Church must pass through a final trial that will shake the faith of many believers." (Catechism of the Catholic Church, Article 675). Today, on Episode 11 of The John-Henry Westen Show, I’m discussing Cardinal Eijk's request for clarity from the Holy Father, akin to St. Paul's public rebuke of St. Peter. Join us as we discuss the harm being done by Pope Francis' ambiguity and the Church's teaching on sexuality and marriage.

The conversation moves into what exactly C-Fam does within the United Nations when policies are drafted. “You know, you get the document, you read the document. You identify bad language; you talk to delegations to try to get bad language out. You try to get good language in… And that’s pretty much what we do.”

If you are interested in this topic, C-Fam puts out Friday Fax, which is the only weekly source for what’s going on at U.N. headquarters on life and family matters.
