Pentin: Response to Cardinal Cupich: Synod Fathers Rejected Communion for Remarried Divorcees

Cardinal Blase Cupich of Chicago fielded about half a dozen questions from reporters after Pope Francis elevated him to the College of Cardinals on Saturday.

A question I asked him was about the Dubia, the five doubts about Amoris Laetitia that four cardinals have sent to the Pope to ascertain whether some of the most controversial passages are consistent with Church teaching.

Although the Dubia questions ask for a simple “yes” or “no” answer on whether previous magisterial teachings, particularly of Pope St. John Paul II, are still valid in light of these passages, the Holy Father has decided not to respond, nor requested to meet the cardinals to specifically discuss their concerns.
+Cupich: All I know is that the doubts that are there, that are expressed, aren’t my doubts, and I think they’re not the doubts of the universal Church. .... [If ones doubts] maybe I need to change rather than saying that the Holy Father has to change, or that the Church has to change.

  1. One wonders if Cupich thinks St JP2's encyclical Veritatis Splendor is magisterial. Cupich'a understanding of conscience and good/evil certainly runs counter to it.
