Pope's Close Advisor Says Francis Probably Wouldn't be Reelected

On May 11, Maike Hickson at the onepeterfive website said on May 10, 2015, the Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera had published an interview with one of Pope Francis closest advisors Archbishop Victor Fernández.
"In spite of his denial of a larger opposition against some of Pope Francis’ attempts to change the Church, Archbishop Fernández admits that, today, probably a Conclave would not re-elect Pope Francis. He said, when asked about a possible re-election: 'I don’t know, possibly not. But it happened.'  "Here we have it. The majority – and the majority of the public media! – are behind the pope. 'His opponents are weaker than what you think.' This is exactly what we are witnessing right now. Almost nobody reports on Cardinal Müller’s resistance."  
 
Muller resistance was to take away the narrative of Amoris Laetitia from the German bishops and Francis' Kasperite associates in his statement that was blacked out.
 
He clearly put everyone on notice, including the Pope and those close to Francis.They are misreading what Amoris Laetitia did and can do if they say it allows Holy Communion to the divorced and remarried. Muller said:
 
"The Church has no power to change Divine Law. Not even a pope or council can change that."
 
Put even more simply:
 
Muller said no.
 
Pope Francis you cannot allow Holy Communion to the divorced and remarried.Even you and a council together cannot change Divine Law and so even you and a council together cannot allow Holy Communion to the divorced and remarried.
 
Pope Francis is a politician.
 
He appears to fear schism so as Fr Z and Forte say he uses ambiguity. He fears Benedict coming out directly against Amoris Laetitia.
 
Muller and Spaemann are Benedict's intimate friends.Is Benedict behind the chess moves of his friends?
 
Francis, the politician, has to suppose it is likely.
 
In chess and politics when in doubt do nothing and wait to see what develops.
 
Pray for Muller, Benedict and all those heroes behind the scenes who are fighting by prayer and/or action for Divine Law and the Catholic Church which is Jesus' beloved bride.

"Exorcist Fr. Ripperger is asking everyone to say this Prayer until the Election is Resolved"

A good friend of the Catholic Monitor got this from a group message. She said "exorcist Fr. Chad Ripperger is asking everyone to say this prayer until the election is resolved": Prayer of Command In His Name and by the power of His Cross and Blood, I ask Jesus to bind any evil spirits, forces and powers of the earth, air, fire, or water, of the netherworld and the satanic forces of nature.  By the power of the Holy Spirit and by His authority, I ask Jesus Christ to break any curses, hexes, or spells and send them back to where they came from, if it be His Holy Will.  I beseech Thee Lord Jesus to protect us by pouring Thy Precious Blood on us (my family, etc.), which Thou hast shed for us and I ask Thee to command that any departing spirits leave quietly, without disturbance, and go straight to Thy Cross to dispose of as Thou sees fit.  I ask Thee to bind any demonic interaction, interplay, or communications.  I place N. (Person, place or thing) under the protectio

If Kamala Harris' Father is part White & part Jamaican African and her Mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black?

  Is Joe Biden's running mate really Black? If Kamala Harris' father is part white and part Jamaican African and her mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black? Reason.com tries to figure it out: Kamala Harris, Joe Biden's pick to be the Democratic Party's vice-presidential nominee, is the daughter of an Indian immigrant mother and a Jamaican immigrant father. Her father, as I understand it, has ancestors of both European and African origin. [Welcome new Volokh readers. FYI, I've been working on a book on the American Law of Race, with this forthcoming article the first relevant output. My own opinion is that Ms. Harris should be deemed American, period, but there is no such box on government forms, and if you decline to state your race, someone will decide for you… First things first. There is no multiracial or mixed-race category in American law in any jurisdiction. Nor is there an Indian category. So Harris cannot be legally Indian, nor can she b

Bishops of Colorado gave an apparent Vaxx "Exemption" Letter & Stated: "Vaccination is Not Morally Obligatory and so Must Be Voluntary"

Today, the bishops of Colorado gave an apparent Vaxx " exemption" letter (21_8_Vaccine_Exemption_CCC_Fin...docx(20KB)) and stated that "Vaccination is Not Morally Obligatory and so Must Be Voluntary":  COLORADO CATHOLIC CONFERENCE 1535 Logan Street | Denver, CO 80203-1913 303-894-8808 | cocatholicconference.org   [Date]   To Whom It May Concern, [Name] is a baptized Catholic seeking a religious exemption from an immunization requirement. This letter explains how the Catholic Church’s teachings may lead individual Catholics, including [name], to decline certain vaccines. The Catholic Church teaches that a person may be required to refuse a medical intervention, including a vaccination, if his or her conscience comes to this judgment. While the Catholic Church does not prohibit the use of most vaccines, and generally encourages them to safeguard personal and public health, the following authoritative Church teachings demonstrate the principled religious
