Fr. Thomas Weinandy resigned as consultant to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops earlier this week after a letter he wrote to Pope Francis on July 31st became public. The letter said Pope Francis’ pontificate is marked by “chronic confusion” and “a seemingly intentional lack of clarity.”

Fr. Weinandy pleaded with the Holy Father to understand that this lack of clarity “inevitably risks sinning against the Holy Spirit” and that the Pope “seems to demean the importance of Church doctrine.” He also said that many Catholics around the world are “losing confidence in their supreme shepherd.”

Fr. Weinandy was the USCCB’s Executive Director of the Secretariat for Doctrine and Pastoral Practices from 2005 to 2013.  He is currently a member of the Vatican’s International Theological Commission. He was a consultant for the U.S. Bishops, but after the letter went public the bishops conference asked him to resign.

The full text of Fr. Weinandy’s letter can be read in full by clicking here .

We are calling on Catholics to show their support for Fr. Weinandy and insist that dispelling confusion from Pope Francis is an act of fidelity to the Church, not dissent.
