Walter Cardinal Kasper Walter Cardinal Kasper

The hits keep coming fast and furious this week. On May 7, Commonweal Magazine published an interview with Cardinal Walter Kasper entitled, “Merciful God, Merciful Church.” The introduction to the article starts as follows:

During his first Angelus address, Pope Francis recommended a work of theology that “has done me so much good” because it “says that mercy changes everything; it changes the world by making it less cold and more fair.” That book is Mercy: The Essence of the Gospel and the Key to Christian Life by Cardinal Walter Kasper…

The article goes downhill from there. Nevertheless, since Cardinal Kasper is highly thought of by Pope Francis, what he thinks is unfortunately relevant. I will thus attempt to pick out some of the Cardinal’s interview “gems” and give some commentary.

Right out of the gate, the Cardinal gives an interesting commentary on Exodus:

Kasper: God’s relation to Moses in the Burning Bush is not “I am,” but “I am with you. I am for you. I am going with you.”

Hmm. Let me check that…

Exodus 3:14:God said to Moses: I AM WHO AM. He said: Thus shalt thou say to the children of Israel: HE WHO IS, hath sent me to you.

Interesting…. Anyway, Kasper continues…
