To Pope Francis: I support the 4 cardinals' letter pleading for clarity

IMPORTANT NOTE: After signing the petition you will be given the opportunity to mail a personalized postcard to Pope Francis at the Vatican, expressing your support for the cardinals' letter.

Background:

Four Cardinals have released an historic letter (FULL TEXT) to Pope Francis in which they plead with him for clarity regarding his Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia.

Dated September 19, 2016, the letter asked the pope five short questions which call for ‘yes or no’ answers which would immediately clarify the meaning of the confusion-plagued document on precisely those points where theologians, priests and even bishops have offered contradicting interpretations.

After nearly two months of the pope’s refusal to respond, the Cardinals have released their letter with an explanatory note giving the faithful the opportunity to see their grave concerns, which touch directly on the integrity of the Catholic faith.

Signed by Cardinals Walter Brandmüller, Raymond Burke, Carlo Caffarra, and Joachim Meisner, the letter tells the Pope of the “uncertainty, confusion, and disorientation among many of the faithful” stemming from Amoris Laetitia. 

The cardinals explain that they are “compelled in conscience by our pastoral responsibility” to call on Pope Francis “with profound respect” to give answer to the questions posed, reminding him that as Pope he is “called by the Risen One to confirm his brothers in the faith” and to “resolve the uncertainties and bring clarity.”

The Holy Father needs to know that the cardinals' concerns about the confusion caused by Amoris Laetitia are also shared by many of the faithful. Please take a moment to sign the petition and to share it.
