Prominent Monsignor Speaks of Need for Doctrinal Clarity amid ‘Apostasy’

Monsignor Nicola Bux, professor of theology and former CDF consultant, spoke very frankly with Edward Pentin about “doctrinal anarchy” currently afflicting the Church. Included in his comments are important points about the true nature of the papal office and the authentic concept of ecclesiastical obedience.

ROME, Italy, June 21, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — Pope Francis could stem the “confusion and apostasy” now rampant in the Church among priests and bishops by “correcting” his own “ambiguous and erroneous words and acts,” said an Italian monsignor and former consultor to the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith in an explosive interview.

Respected theologian Monsignor Nicola Bux, a professor at the Theological Faculty of Puglia, defined “apostasy” as the “abandonment of Catholic thought” that has been believed everywhere, always, and by all.

Apostasy arises, he said in the June 21 interview with the National Catholic Register’s Ed Pentin, when “cardinals are silent” in the face of false teaching, when bishops “say the opposite” of what the Church actually teaches, and when priests “contest the liturgical tradition of the Church.”
