Cardinal Kasper passed away this morning amid positive reports on the Pope – On the heels of the original reports that the Pope had chosen Cardinal Kasper as one of the Cardinals to present on April 8th what was being feared by theologians as the ‘Kasperian’ Marriage Theology- Encyclical and  Church government liberal reforms towards a Catholic democracy via the new creation of Bishop Conferences structures for it’s implementation ………

……..comes an Italian translation report reaffirming Cardinal Kasper’s personal beliefs of a personal conscience form of evangelical lutheran methods of the personal absolution of God without a confessor. The Cardinal admittedly had not attended a Sacramental Confession since the 1990s –

In breaking news from Rome it appears that it was Pope Francis that urged Cardinal Kasper to change and to admit himself to the Sacrament of Penance during Holy Week

Fulfilling the Scripture “Your ways are not my ways saith the Lord ” Angels may have come for the Cardinal when he reached a state of grace … What an amazing event in Catholic salvation history

Then in the unlikeliest of places – words of respect for Pope Francis come from the leaders of the SSPX and within in an embedded and very respectful full interview with a Bishop of the SSPX as talks move closer to a Papal approved Canonical status of the Society

One of Pope Francis’ strongest critics offers a surprising note of hope | News | LifeSite
