Even before the close of the Synod on Young Interpretive Dancers and the utterly inexplicable Vatican co-opting of the USCCB meeting, Monsignor Bux, a Vatican theologian and a former consultor to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, was already calling foul. Ed Pentin, on his own website, highlights a recent interview:

In a forceful interview with Italian Vaticanist Aldo Maria Valli, Msgr. Nicola Bux has warned that the current pontificate is issuing statements that are generating “heresies, schisms, and controversies of various kinds” and that the Holy Father should issue a profession of faith to restore unity in the Church.

In the interview, published Oct. 13 but overlooked due to the Youth Synod taking place in Rome last month, the theologian consultor to the Congregation for the Causes of Saints said “heretical statements” on marriage, the moral life and reception of the sacraments are now “at the center of a vast debate which is becoming more and more passionate by the day.”

“If this [Papal profession of Faith] doesn’t happen,” he warned, “the apostasy will deepen and the de facto schism will widen.”

Msgr. Bux feels the situation has become especially urgent after the Pope changed the Catechism in August to declare the death penalty “inadmissible.” The change contradicts the Tridentine and St. Pius X Catechisms, the theologian asserted, the latter of which taught that the legitimacy of capital punishment was in “full conformity with Divine Revelation.”

He also pointed out that the tendency of this pontificate to be silent in the face of criticism, or refuse to engage the charges of heresy or apostasy, bring to mind St. Pius X’s warning in his 1907 encyclical Pascendi dominici gregis: That never “clearly confessing one’s own heresy” is “typical behaviour of the modernists, because in this way they can hide themselves within the Church.”

 REMNANT COMMENT: Gee, I wonder why this man seems to have such a keen and priestly sensus catholicus. . . . Maybe this has something to do with it...bux 2
