Polish bishop supports cardinals’ request for clarification of Amoris Laetitia

November 23, 2016

A Polish bishop has joined the debate the request by four cardinals for Pope Francis to clarify Amoris Laetitia.

“It would be just to respond” to the four cardinals, said Bishop Jozef Wrobel, an auxiliary of the Lublin archdiocese. Noting that the four cardinals were not disputing the Pope’s authority, but asking for clarification of the document, he said: “It is evidently necessary to answer them.”

In an interview with the Italian daily La Fede Quotidiana, Bishop Wrobel indicated that he was sympathetic to the cardinals’ concerns about confusion raised by the papal document. “Amoris Laetitia is not well written,” he said.

    Even though Bishop Wrobel carries the Gospel in his heart everywhere he goes, he said this in the cited article: "They [the Cardinals] did well and have exercised correctly what Canon Law provides for. I think it is not just a right, but moreover a duty." "They did not ask about the weather of tomorrow, but about questions that regard the Church’s doctrine and therefore her faithful." "The primacy of charity begins with those that are closest." Canon law and theological virtue to the rescue?
