October 4, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) An Opus Dei leader has denounced the signatories of a recently-published filial correction of Pope Francis regarding heresies propagated by the pontiff.
The orders Vicar General, its second-ranked prelate, accused the more than two hundred scholars and clergy who have signed the Correction of attack[ing] the pope and airing the Churchs dirty laundry in public.
Lamentably this isnt the first time in the history of the Church in recent years in which there are groups of people that attack the pope, some of whom, I imagine, with good intention, Monsenor Mariano Fazio told the Argentinean daily La Nacion in an interview published on September 29.
It seems to me that, on one hand, that its an example of the freedom of opinion that exists in the Church and that the pope respects, added Fazio.

What statements from the SSPX surprise you?
One of their Bishops said something favorable about him this year. Hard to find it on my phone. My daughter is at Ave Maria in Naples
Airing dirty laundry in public aka transparency.
Funny thing, when the dirty laundry gets air, many of the parasites flee or go out of business.
Half the people who would favor a revolution are more interested in not rocking the boat.
Paul Rebukes Peter at Antioch
But when Peter came to Antioch, I opposed him in public, because he was clearly wrong.
Opus Dei is playing the long game.
Just my guess.
The Catholic Church has become the Democrat Party....those who speak truth are castigate for “mean spirited attacks on their own”.....
