Cardinal Paul Josef Cordes, the retired president of the Pontifical Council Cor Unum, has voiced his support for the four cardinals who have submitted dubia seeking clarificaiton of Amoris Laetitia.
Cardinal Cordes told the Austrian Catholic news service Kath.net that
the cardinals were engaged in an honest effort to eliminate confusion
about Church teaching. He voiced his concern that the confusion could
hamper the Church’s efforts to promote sacramental marriage.
said that he did not understand why some Church officials have reacted
angrily to the dubia, and wondered aloud why anyone would be angered by a request for clarification.
Cardinal Cordes suggested that the task of answering questions about
the papal document could be handled by the Congregation for the Doctrine
of the Faith and its prefect, Cardinal Gerhard Müller.
