This just in from "In a recent article for the Italian news platform “Corrispondenza Romana”, renowned Catholic philosopher Josef Seifert strongly criticizes Pope Francis for statements in his recent Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia.Seifert, a longtime ordinary member of the Pontifical Academy for Life and a close associate of St. John Paul II, explains that he criticizes the document because instead of invoking joy – as stated in the exhortation title – the papal document would actually make Jesus and his mother cry.

"Many of the passages which seem merciful turn the teachings of the Church on their heads, according to Seifert. “In my opinion, they risk an avalanche of consequences which would be very harmful to the Church and to souls." READ ARTICLE HERE

REMNANT COMMENT: Pope Francis is fast running out of defenders anywhere outside of the liberal Left, the Hollwood elite, the Democratic Party and the radical progressivists inside the Church. Anyone claiming to be Catholic and still making excuses for this disastrous pontificate is either malicious or downright stupid.

Says Seifert: “How can Jesus and His most holy Mother read and link these words of the Pope with those of Jesus Himself and of His Church without crying?"

Indeed, if you love the Church you must weep with Jesus over what is happening now, and recognize the fundamental responsibility of all faithful Catholics to oppose Pope Franics and to, like Dr. Seifert, publicly resist his myriad errors and his public scandal.
