The Letter, Veritatis Splendor and Amoris Laetitia

Here's a summary of the Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI Letter that makes the tongue in cheek bordering on sarcasm language obvious and also his unhappiness at those who attack Veritatis Splendor:

"I am unable to read the eleven volumes" but the "small volumes show, rightly, that Pope Francis is a man of profound philosophical and theological formation, and they therefore help to see the inner continuity between the two pontificates... I don’t feel like writing a short and dense theological passage on them... Professor Hünermann, who during my pontificate had distinguished himself by leading anti-papal initiatives. He played a major part in the release of the 'Kölner Erklärung' [Cologne Declaration], which, in relation to the encyclical 'Veritatis splendor', virulently attacked the magisterial authority of the Pope, especially on questions of moral theology... I am sure you will understand my refusal." As an aside, 'Veritatis splendor' contradicts the moral theology of Amoris Laetitia Have a nice day. [http://m.ncregister.com/blog/edward-pentin/full-text-of-benedict-xvis-letter-to-mons.-vigano#.WrU3eXNlAwh]

Anyone who has read Veritatis Splendor knows it condemns the moral theology of Amoris Laetitia.

Hünermann is for the moment the face of Pope Francis's Amoris Laetitia which is condemned by Veritatis Splendor for it's betrayal of infallible Catholic doctrines on freedom and conscience.

Who is Professor Hünermann who "played a major part in the release of the 'Kölner Erklärung'" [Cologne Declaration]?

The 1989 New York Times tells us the Cologne Declaration dissenters were teaching heresy on freedom and conscience of whom the professor was a leader according to Benedict:

"As divisions inside the Roman Catholic Church appear to deepen, dissident theologians across Western Europe have begun openly challenging the conservative teachings and highly centralized leadership of Pope John Paul II.

The catalyst for the movement was the Pope's appointment of a conservative prelate as Archbishop of Cologne, West Germany, last December, but since then a battery of other criticisms have been aimed at the John Paul by theologians from at least eight countries.

Complaints include the overruling of local opinion in the naming of bishops, moves to silence independent and left-leaning theologians, the systematic weakening of national bishops' conferences, a narrow interpretation of sexual morality and the Pope's authoritarian style of rule. 'He Must Expect Opposition'

'If the Pope does what does not belong to his office, he cannot demand obedience in the name of Catholicism,' some 163 theologians from West Germany, the Netherlands, Austria and Switzerland said January in a statement now known as the Cologne Declaration...

This week, the Vatican also published a recent speech by Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith, in which he responded to 'a litany of objections,' the recitation of which, he said, 'has become like the performance of a duty for progressive-thinking Catholics.'

The Cardinal, who is one of the most powerful figures in the Vatican, specifically charged that those who reject the church's position on contraception, homosexuality, divorce and the ordination of women are trying to give new meaning to the concepts of 'conscience' and 'freedom' contrary to traditional teachings...

The appointment of conservative bishops has caused distress in many dioceses, most recently in Vienna and Salzburg, yet it was the Pope's decision to name Joachim Cardinal Meisner, the former archbishop of Berlin, [the Dubia Cardinal and friend of Benedict who died last year] to head the wealthy and powerful archdiocese of Cologne last December that brought the simmering issue to a boil."

"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.
