And he certainly doesn’t have anything to hide.
People who are thinking that the pope is worried about a confrontation with the cardinals at the consistory are completely and utterly failing to understand him. Sorry Laurence, but no. Most emphatically not at all.
There has not been a single day in the last three and a half years in which this person or any of his cabal have demonstrated the slightest interest in hiding anything.
He hasn’t answered the cardinals – and has now reportedly cancelled his meetings with them this weekend – because he knows he doesn’t have to.
His world is only and exclusively about power and his agenda. He does not care about the cardinals, or their dubium. He didn’t answer them because he doesn’t have to. That’s the only reason. Imagining that he’s somehow “afraid” of them or their objections is demonstrating a failure to grasp the most important thing about him and his cabal: narcissism. To these people, other people, including cardinals, don’t really exist. People aren’t really people to such men. They’re tools.
The cardinals (and bishops) have served their purpose. They’ve played their part in furthering the revolution by turning up and playing along with the farce of the two Synods. Anyone with eyes and ears could have and should have seen and understood what was happening at those two insane dog-n-pony shows. The fact that these men were willing to come all the way to Rome, participate in that absurdist farce
…and smile for the photo-ops afterwards with the man who was so brazenly manipulating them tells us everything we need to know about them. There is such a thing as culpable ignorance.
Look at these men. Are these men who are the slightest bit worried about anything? Anything at all?
Let me explain it to you: Bergoglio and his ilk (Danneels, Marx, Kasper, Wuerl etc.) believe in a “Church” without Christ. But what is a Church without Christ really about? It can only be about power. And he/they know they have all of it.
All of it.
ALL. OF. IT.
Having all the power means he doesn’t need to answer anyone about anything. He cancelled the meetings with the cardinals not because he’s afraid of a confrontation but because he has everything he needs. For him and his puppet masters/cabal the only thing that matters is the agenda and implementing it, which they are doing without batting an eye at the dubia. Such things are about as important to them as a mosquito is to you and me.
This is narcissism. For such a person only what he wants is important. He uses people the way you and I use kitchen implements. The cardinals (and bishops) have served their purpose, therefore no further attention needs to be granted them. This kind does not know fear because it has never and can never occur to them that anything can stop them.
So, please everyone, stop annoying me with this “he’s scared” nonsense. My eyes are starting to ache with all the rolling.
