Edward Pentin's significant interview with Monsignor Bux just in from National Catholic Register

Theologian and former consulter to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith calls on the Pope to make a declaration of faith, warning that unless the Pope safeguards doctrine, he cannot impose discipline.

To resolve the current crisis in the Church over papal teaching and authority, the Pope must make a declaration of faith, affirming what is Catholic and correcting his own “ambiguous and erroneous” words and actions that have been interpreted in a non-Catholic manner.

This is according to Monsignor Nicola Bux, a respected theologian and former consulter to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith during Benedict XVI’s pontificate.

In the following interview with the Register, Msgr. Bux explains that the Church is in a “full crisis of faith” and that the storms of division the Church is currently experiencing are due to apostasy — the “abandonment of Catholic thought.”

Msgr. Bux’s comments come after news that the four dubia cardinals, seeking papal clarification of his exhortation Amoris Laetitiawrote to the Pope April 25 asking him for an audience but have yet to receive a reply.

REMNANT COMMENT:  It should be obvious to all Catholics of good will that the Church is now in a crisis unprecedented in history. Monsignor Bux is leading by example when it comes to the proper response on the part of the Catholic faithful to a crisis that rises to the highest levels in the Catholic Church.

It goes without saying that we here at The Remnant offer our full and unconditional support for this courageous priest who at this dark hour understands his duty before God to speak his mind in defense of Holy Mother Church, regardless of criticisms and unjust accusations that may arise as a consequence.

We call upon all priests, bishops and cardinals to consider adding their voice of respectful opposition to that of Monsignor Bux against the current regime in the Vatican, which in good conscience we can no longer defend and for which we pray every day that they may return to the faithful defense of Christ's Church and her immutable teachings on faith and morals.
