Cardinal Burke: The ‘dubia’ not an attack on the pope

Cardinal Raymond Burke has spoken out on the reactions raised by the dubia he and four other cardinals submitted to Pope Francis on the eve of the opening of the plenary assembly of the Synod on Synodality, asserting that the move was aimed neither at the pope’s person nor his agenda, but merely at safeguarding the Church’s perennial doctrine. “It is unfortunately very clear, Cardinal Burke said, “that the invocation of the Holy Spirit by some has for its purpose the advancement of an agenda that is more political and human than ecclesial and divine.” [1]
