Cardinal Baldisseri questions Archbishop Chaput’s critique of synod working document

CWN Editor's Note: At a Vatican press conference (video), the Secretary General of the Synod of Bishops referred to the Philadelphia archbishop’s critique of the youth synod’s working document. “If he had any objection, he could have said so; we would have included that, calmly,” said Cardinal Baldisseri. “But I don’t understand why, later, he made a declaration. It’s a matter of loyalty and honesty.”

    Baldisseri is another wolf in sheep's clothing. Rather then address the issues raised he would rather personally attack Archbishop Chaput. The Church has too many Cardinals like Baldisseri. It will be tough cleaning them out especially with this Pope. He is stacking the deck to get someone like himself to be the next Pope. Only Christ can save His Church and His children. Pray every day for His help.

    The hush up disputes and bad behavior attitude is what got them into trouble in the first place. Apparently, they haven't learned much from the recent scandals.
