Wild wide world of sportsToday we stop to take a breath since there has been much information that has been contained in the most interesting and quite revealing article that appeared in the Corriera della Sera on the 10th of May 2015. (see here)

On an aside, today we are actually 142 days from the Monday, 5 October 2015 when all the festivities at the Stealth Sex Synod of 2015 will kick off. However, due to a busy travel schedule, your humble blogger is 4 days in arrears, which is why the above post is tagged with a T -146 designation. Mea Culpa and I will catch up. I promise! Now back to todays topic.

The interview contained in the Man Marking Fernandez – The Loose Canon post (see here) was given by what could be described as one of the closest confidants of Francis during his time as the Archbishop of Buenos Aires, Archbishop Victor Manuel Ferandez. (see here – in German) This interview contains information that supports analysis that appeared in a number of posts on this blog in January of this year, on a topic that we termed the “ crisis that Francis is beyond”. Today we will go back and review this information contained in these various posts and try to put it into a logical sequence. A chronology of sorts. This should help focus our attention on the upcoming posts that will “unpack” the information contained in the Fernandez interview and provide us with a better understanding of the current lay of the land with respect to this papacy.

Here is a review of the background.

It all began in December 2014, when we observed a most peculiar phenomenon. Reading the MondayVatican blog from the 15th of December 2014, in a post titled Pope Francis beyond the crisis. Waiting to appoint new cardinals. (see here), we were struck by its rather odd headline. A literal reading of this headline would suggest that Francis: a) had a crisis and b) managed to get beyond it. Yet when we looked through the previous posts at the MondayVatican blog, we could not find any mention of a crisis. What’s more, we could not even find the word “crisis” used in any MondayVatican post written since the commencement of the Secret Synod of Bishops of 2014.

So we investigated what this “crisis that Francis was beyond” could possibly consist of. And naturally we used out Peirce/Ockham pragmatic methodology (see here) with a liberal (in the good sense of that word) application of Ockham’s (Occam’s) razor. Below is what we discovered about the said “crisis”, the one “Francis was beyond”.

As our analysis demonstrated, the “crisis that Francis was beyond” was caused by two events, namely a) the release of the Ivereigh book containing allegations of vote canvassing at the 2013 Conclave and b) the release of the Lineamenta (instructions) to the bishops’ conferences on the 9th of December 2014. And the reason that Francis was “beyond” was supposedly due to an interview that appeared in the La Nacion newspaper on the 7th of December 2014, (see here) which our analysis determined to be a preemptive move to “get beyond” the “crisis“, the “crisis” that Francis was to create with the release of the outright evil Lineamenta document two days later.

In a post from the 21st of January, 2015 titled The Razor’s Edge (see here), we summarized what we had found to date, and made the following conclusion:

The Synod of Bishops’ agenda of the Manipulators is the TRUE AGENDA of Francis. For Francis, this TRUE AGENDA is more important than any reform process that has been undertaken thus far. Furthermore, Francis is willing to go to extreme lengths to force through this TRUE AGENDA, even willing to create a “crisis” in order to get the TRUE AGENDA passed.

Given the above, and fast forwarding to the 12th of May 2015, in a post titled Francis’ Revolution Put On Hold (see here), we observed , as did Sandro Magister and Andrea Gagliarducci, that “the revolution”, i.e. the True Agenda of Francis, was in fact put on hold. The evidence that supports this contention was the information that the national bishops’ conferences were sending delegations that supported the Catholic Church Magisterium by an overwhelming majority, information confirmed by Magister and Gagliarducci. Next, it would appear that Card. Muller has taken control over that which is produced in physical form (paper form) by Francis and his ghost writer(s) through a new “functionality” implemented at the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith under the term “theological structuring”. We laid out the case for this contention in the post titled Theological Structuring? Francis Don’t Need No Stinking Theological Structuring! (see here)

Given the accuracy of our observation that the Francis has in fact put “the revolution” on hold, we have began investigating what possibly could have been the reason behind this development. Please keep in mind that Francis is an absolute sovereign and can do whatever he wants. Naturally he is limited by the Magisterium, but this in no way can force him to give up control over his teaching office. Once again, here is the relevant citation of Fr. Benoît-Dominique de La Soujeole, OP that appeared on the VASSALLO MALTA blog:

Individual Pope figures aside, can the Successor of Peter’s ministry be considered theologically “lacking” and in need of a certain “theological structuring” by individuals other than the Pope?

Certainly not! The Pope has everything it takes to enounce the faith of the Church. The Congregation De doctrina fidei helps the Pope in the preparation and implementation phases but the “crux” consists in enouncing the faith of the Church and this is the Pope’s very own and personal ministry. By “structuring”, Cardinal Müller may have meant this, above all preparatory, work.

And yet, we know the below to be the case from Sandro Magister’ blog:

The Vatican has denied that Pope Francis’ forthcoming encyclical has been delayed because the Holy Father feared the first draft would not be approved by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF).

On an aside, please do not get thrown off track by the denial. There is a saying amongst analysts who monitor the economic affairs surrounding the European Union who claim that a statement from an EU official: cannot be considered to be true, until it has been denied. This is very much the case here, as has been demonstrated in the post titled Theological Structuring? Francis Don’t Need No Stinking Theological Structuring! But I digress…

Which led us to the ask the question: “what in the wild, wild world of sports is going on here?”

I will leave off in this exact point here for today, since I am already running long and I haven’t gotten to any new analysis yet.

Please excuse me if you are up to speed on the above, however it is critical, in this humble bloggers opinion to understand the exact nature of “the revolution”, how and by whom it being executed, and what has transpired that has put this “revolution on hold”.

We will get the last part of the above sentence in tomorrow’s post.

So stay tuned.
