    If the papal response to the famous Dubia is any indication, the good cardinal may have to wait until hell freezes over before this pope brings any "clarity" to the interpretation of Amoris Laetitia. Others who have indicated the need for such "clarity" have often been punished. Let's hope nothing like that happens to Cardinal Eijk.
