“There’s finally a realization that maybe the way we’ve been approaching things doesn’t help, or it’s not taking into account that that’s an ideal and real life is messy and we have to be able to deal with the mess, not the black and white,” said Alicia Ambrosio, producer and host of Vatican Connections on Salt and Light Television, to the host of TV Ontario’s The Agenda program last Friday evening, Oct. 17.

“A change in — you know what — maybe we don’t have to tell people they’re wrong. Maybe we can work with them and find a way to welcome them into our community, even though they might not be perfect in our eyes. So, that’s going to be huge.”
“It’s kind of like what you see in politics as well, with left and right. No matter what the other side says, this side is going to freak out. Cardinal Burke comes from a stream that doesn’t believe we should be even having this conversation. [His position can be summed as] ‘this is the truth, this is what should be happening, if you’re not meeting up to the truth, if you’re not living up to this ideal, you’re wrong. And there should be no conversation about how to bend to welcome people in, because then you’re bending on the truth.’”
“So, it’s a mindset. Discussions I’ve had with other journalists and other Catholics – we’re really wondering what’s going to happen to Cardinal Burke and others of his ilk after the Synod, because if this conversation goes down a road that they can’t accept, then what?” she said.

Alicia, let me fill you in, dear. Cardinal Burke will be back in the Curia during the next pontificate in some fashion. He’s 66. He’s just a kid by Curial standards. Moreover, you don’t appear to know how to count, either. The vast majority of the bishops and Cardinals are not open to the proposals of Kasper and his cronies. And they are also probably pretty pissed that the Synod has gone the way it has — you know, how you kind of determine doctrine by votes and put the number of votes for and against after each paragraph? That’s kind of stupid and silly, but not at all unexpected from progressives. Fits right into their plan.
There will be a major correction when the next Pope is elected, as the Cardinal-electors will want to re-assert some order and identity to the Church, as well as a respect for law and justice.
And because Burke came out so strongly against this sham Synod orientation, guess who’s going to be the hands-on pick to be the next Pope?
So, you’ve asked the wrong question. The question is not what’s going to happen to Burke? It’s what’s going to happen to Salt & Light?
There’s always a tomorrow. Remember that.
