Francis don’t need no stinkin’ Scripture and Tradition, he’s perfect, writes a member of his inner circle

But it’s now-you-see-it, now-you-don’t time at a semi-official news service.

Please, read the following words, taken from an article written by Fr. Thomas Rosica, the Canadian priest who is one of the main English-speaking members of Francis’ inner circle, and published by news agency Zenit on July 31, 2018 [August 14 Update: Zenit has removed the controversial part quoted below, but the whole article can be seen at the end of this post]:

The killer quote, before removal, with boldface added:

Pope Francis breaks Catholic traditions whenever he wants, because he is “free from disordered attachments.” Our Church has indeed entered a new phase: with the advent of this first Jesuit pope, it is openly ruled by an individual rather than by the authority of Scripture alone or even its own dictates of tradition plus Scripture.

Note that the above is the final paragraph — his closer, meant to conclude the argument, giving reader something to remember — of this stunning analysis by a Vatican insider, onetime #2 in the Holy See’s press office, a spokesman for the Pope close to The Big Guy himself , now himself a blogger.

“Astonishing,” says RORATE CÆLI:

This is astonishing on so many levels it is hard to digest: first, the proclamation that the Church has entered a supposedly “new phase”, guided by this new kind of post-Christian Messianic leader, a kind of Catholic “Reverend Moon”; second, the appalling admission that this new kind of leader has a tyrannical hold on the Church that is completely separate, independent from Scripture and Tradition, and that goes beyond both.

Rev. Moon? Hmmm.
