Cardinal Sarah Throws Down the Gantlet

In a new book entitled God or Nothing, Cardinal Robert Sarah of Guinea issues a warning that will ring down through the history of the Church until the end of time:
The idea that would consist in placing the Magisterium in a nice box by detaching it from pastoral practice--which could evolve according to the circumstances, fads, and passions--is a form of heresy, a dangerous schizophrenic pathology. I affirm solemnly that the Church of Africa will firmly oppose every rebellion against the teaching of Christ and the Magisterium.
The Cardinal is referring to the next phase of the post-conciliar revolution in the Church: the attempt to undermine the doctrines of the Faith by ignoring them in practice while affirming them as merely verbal propositions. This was the program of the controllers of the Phony Synod of 2014, and it will be the program of the controllers of the Phony Synod of 2015.
The final assault on the citadel of the Church will attempt to breach her ramparts by a "pastoral application" of the infallible teaching of the Magisterium that would ignore the indissolubility of marriage by admitting public adulterers to Holy Communion on a "case-by-case basis," as suggested by the scandalous midterm report of Phony Synod 2014, approved by Francis. That is, the proposed "pastoral application" of doctrine would not apply the doctrine at all but rather would refuse to apply and thus de facto negate it.
This would indeed introduce what the Cardinal calls "a dangerous schizophrenic pathology" into the life of the Church: a Church that teaches one thing and does another; a Church that would thereby become, in practice, yet another liberal Protestant denomination while maintaining Catholic doctrine on paper. And if public adulterers could be admitted to Holy Communion while continuing in their adultery, what notorious public sinner of any kind could logically then be excluded from reception of the Sacrament?
What is being planned is precisely a "rebellion against the teaching of Christ and the Magisterium" — a rebellion orchestrated at the very highest levels of the Church, thus fulfilling the prophecy of the Third Secret, as revealed by Cardinal Ciappi (personal theologian to every Pope from Pius XII to John Paul II): "In the Third Secret, it is foretold, among other things, that the great apostasy in the Church will begin at the top."
When Cardinal Sarah's book was first announced it featured a preface by Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI. That preface has since mysteriously disappeared. Even more mysterious is the disappearance of the pontificate of Pope Benedict even though he continues to write, speak, receive visitors and make public appearances at the request of his successor. Something unprecedented — even in this epoch of unprecedented developments — is now unfolding behind the walls of the Vatican.
And now a prominent African Cardinal joins his fellow Prince of the Church, Cardinal Burke, in vowing his opposition to the rebellion against Christ and the teaching of Pope Francis who now openly proclaims his aims to the world. There can be no doubt that we are seeing what Our Lady of Akita predicted in light of the Third Secret She has already revealed: "The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see Cardinals opposing Cardinals, bishops against other bishops."
