Cardinal Cupich is promoted again
#1
If cupich has his way there will be no orthodox bishops in America in the coming years. In essence he supports communion for the remarried (just penned a forward to a book by a vatican cardinal supporting this position) and those who practice homosexuality, who believe through personal discernment they are not committing a serious sin.

Lifesitenews.com is a reputable, I believe, conservative catholic news outlet that gives us the scoop from an orthodox point of view - the story begins - 

July 7, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – Pope Francis has named Chicago Archbishop Blase Cupich to serve as a member of the Congregation for Bishops, the Vatican office that recommends to the Pope candidates to be appointed bishops. The move has alarmed traditional-minded Catholics since Cupich has shown himself to be an extremely liberal bishop.

In this role, Cupich will now exercise one of the most prominent roles in deciding who to appoint as new bishops in the United States. Cupich is said to have been hand-picked by Pope Francis for his prominent position as Archbishop of Chicago.

Cupich will join Washington, D.C.'s Cardinal Donald Wuerl, who Pope Francis named to the congregation in December 2013 while at the same time removing Cardinal Raymond Burke. Burke had been credited with influencing several strong appointments to U.S. sees in the latter years of Pope Benedict XVI's pontificate.
The news of Cupich's appointment has been met with consternation by many U.S. Catholics because Cupich is a prominent “progressive” who has earned frequent criticism for his actions on issues such as life and family.

even so there are few who know this and it will be news to them - sometimes old news takes on a new meaning and given what is going on in our church this is a real concern. He has since penned a forward to a book condoning communion for the remarried and has further made his beliefs know about same sex unions. How many people know that francis told la stampa in 2015 that eventually all remarried catholics will be able to receive communion if they want to?

We can only hope that the next Pope appoints a different person for the Congregation for Bishops.

Cardinal Cupich is a gifted orator, able to speak numerous languages. When he speaks he commands your attention. Once you listen to his words and his themes you realize they're awfully shallow. He can write an entire paragraph and say almost nothing. Fluff. Poof. Gone.
Unfortunately I don't have any "fun facts" about me unless being a practicing Catholic counts.

Trying to get better every day week.
