I’m sure this must be a mistranslation from the Vatican. They would never imply that truth is rooted in God’s revelation and is authoritative...
Still, it is always good when anyone reads the Bible and seeks wisdom.
I go to Mass on Sundays at different Catholic churches throughout the year, and no one knows who I am while I receive communion, least of all the priests or servers. In fact, a Jewish person can walk up and receive communion and no one would know. It's not like everyone is being "ID'd" while they are in line.
Cardinal Kasper disagrees with perennial Church teachings and hopes to undermine them under cover of a “pastoral” fig leaf (typical sneaky, “modernist” approach to dismantling Church teachings and discipline). If he has his way, Communion for divorced and remarried will eventually extend to non-Catholics as well, in order to achieve his goal of ecumenical “unity”.
And the Pope has chosen this man to do his own groundwork.
