Cardinal Rodríguez Maradiaga loses it

In his new interview book Cardinal Rodríguez Maradiaga loses his temper when lashing out on Cardinal Raymond Burke because he stated that the controversial document Amoris Laetitia is not part of the Magisterium.

Rodríguez insults his confrere as a "disappointed man because he wanted power and lost it." He insinuates that "[Cardinal Burke] thought he was the highest authority in the United States."

Then he adds: "As Saint Therese of Lisieux said, 'I prefer to be small because if I happen to stumble, to fall, then the hit will not be so big; but those who are higher up make noise and hurt themselves badly when they fall'. [Cardinal Burke] is not the magisterium: the Holy Father is the magisterium, and he teaches the whole Church. The other only pronounces his thought and does not merit further comments. These are only the words of a poor man."

This is the "prelate" who preferring to be "small" took a bike ride around "his" ( can't make it up) Cathedral, cause he is like Little Therese - what vomit making garbage these friends of papa Francis spout.
Looses it implies he had it....i doubt that

Someone needs to remind Cardinal Maradiaga, that if Cardinal Burke was looking for power and prestige, as he put it, would not have criticized Pope Francis form the start, which is why He was demoted in the first place. Bravo Cardinal Burke.........

In the words of Johnny Depp's Willy Wonka, I would say to Cdl. Maradiaga: "You're really weird!"

Cardinal Burke directs his comments to the issues; Cardinal Maradiaga would serve himself and all of us better if he also focused on the issues. If Cardinal Burke is wrong, refute him on the issues, not with disparaging his character. But like many liberals, Cardinal Maradiaga can not make his case using the facts, so he must resort to attacking the character of the one with whom he disagrees.

Mind your words. You are talking about the vice-pope!

Interesting. Now they're going after one another. Cardinal Oscar is a Latin American 'progressive' nobody who has been and still is close to Pope Francis. Of course, he will defend his friend. Cardinal Burke will not respond. He's got too much class to get into the mud with this clown. Personally, I would speak to Cardinal Rodríguez privately (no witnesses) and, in so many words, would advise … More
