Cardinal Schönborn, “John Paul II. Missed Half Of The Moral Teaching”

Pope Francis is "moving ahead", but partly “in a very lonely way” according to Vienna Cardinal Christoph Schönborn.

Talking to the anti-Church German weekly Zeit (January 11), he admitted that with Francis a “change” has been perceptible in the Church. Schönborn believes that Francis is attractive for "many" who have "little to do" with the Church (and keep having little to do with the Church despite Francis).

Schönborn criticises John Paul II’s encyclical Veritatis Splendor (1993) for being concerned with objective norms, but lacking "the other side". In Amoris Laetitia, Francis - according to Schönborn - “adds the second half of the matter”, that is discernment of singular cases and the personal conscience (as if John Paul II did not consider "circumstances" and "conscience").

Schönborn attacks the four Dubia Cardinals for publishing their concerns, “This is not a proper behaviour for close collaborators of the Pope.” Francis has however adamantly refused to have any close collaboration with these "close collaborators".

VRS saints are not made by popes! A pope only declares a manifestly holy person to be a saint. Holiness and sainthood are attained by the grace of God.
"To compare the heretic Bergoglio with Saint Pope John Paul II is indeed ludicrous"
The so-called "heretic" Bergoglio made John Paul II a "Saint".

To compare the heretic Bergoglio with Saint Pope John Paul II is indeed ludicrous! If Bergoglio had a fraction of the intelligence and the holiness of John Paul II he would not be the heretical half wit that he is. Schonborn is obviously one of Bergoglio's lackeys!

Jim Dorchak Being more precise, Cardinal Schönborn has lost half of his brain. :) At least!
Jim Dorchak mentioned this post in The headline should say "Cardinal Schönborn" HAS MISSED HIS BRAIN!"'.
All those Cardinals ,Bishops priests that dont like the Truth of the Gospel ,they can leave and join the protestants .
THe Truth will set you free ,and the 4 Cardinals are on the side of Truth
This man should clean up his own backyard [Vienna Abortion Museum Has Something To Hide] before attacking a Saint. Or may be the pro-life stance of John Paul II also bothers him since on his territory there are zealous pro-choice activists?

Unfortunately you can't say about Schönborn: "He was raised Catholic, but he actually knows something about it."
