“Il prossimo passo sarà la riaffermazione dell’insegnamento della Chiesa”, con queste parole il Card. Burke ha chiarito che, in assenza di precisi segnali da parte di Bergoglio, si procederà alla correzione formale, nella quale si sottolineerà “che questo stesso insegnamento, relativo alle verità di Fede, non è chiaramente illustrato dal Papa” (it would be stated that these truths of the Faith are not being clearly set forth by the Roman Pontiff). Non solo: lo schema della correzione è già pronto e, in assenza di posizioni ufficiali espresse da Bergoglio, verrà data, dai cardinali, la risposta (sì/no) ai dubia in maniera conforme alla dottrina, divulgando il testo con allegate le risposte incontrovertibili, cui lo stesso Bergoglio dovrà conformarsi in obbedienza a Cristo e al Magistero della Chiesa (“the Roman Pontiff is called to conform his own teaching in obedience to Christ and the Magisterium of the Church“).

“On the one hand, one sets forth the clear teaching of the Church; on the other hand, what is actually being taught by the Roman Pontiff is stated. If there is a contradiction, the Roman Pontiff is called to conform his own teaching in obedience to Christ and the Magisterium of the Church,” he said.
“The question is asked, ‘How would this be done?’ It is done very simply by a formal declaration to which the Holy Father would be obliged to respond. Cardinals Brandmüller, Caffarra, Meisner, and I used an ancient institution in the Church of proposing dubia to the Pope,” the Cardinal continued.
If the Pope continues in his refusal to answer the dubia, the “next step would be a formal declaration stating the clear teachings of the Church as set forth in the dubia,” said Burke.
“Furthermore, it would be stated that these truths of the Faith are not being clearly set forth by the Roman Pontiff. In other words, instead of asking the questions as was done in the dubia, the formal correction would be stating the answers as clearly taught by the Church,” he added.
It is widely held that the Cardinals, following the doctrines of the Church on marriage, confession, and the Eucharist, would answer the five yes-or-no questionsin this way:
- Following the affirmations of Amoris Laetitia (nn. 300-305), can a habitual adulterous couple be granted absolution and receive Holy Communion? NO
- With the publication of Amoris Laetitia (cf. n. 304), does one still need to regard as valid the teaching of St. John Paul II in Veritatis Splendor that there are “absolute moral norms that prohibit intrinsically evil acts and that are binding without exceptions?” YES
- After Amoris Laetitia (n. 301), is it still possible to affirm that habitual adultery can be an “objective situation of grave habitual sin?” YES
- After the affirmations of Amoris Laetitia (n. 302) are the teachings of John Paul II in Veritatis Splendor still valid that “circumstances or intentions can never transform an act intrinsically evil by virtue of its object into an act ‘subjectively’ good or defensible as a choice”? YES
- After Amoris Laetitia (n. 303) does one still need to regard as valid the teaching of St. John Paul II’s encyclical Veritatis Splendor “that excludes a creative interpretation of the role of conscience and that emphasizes that conscience can never be authorized to legitimate exceptions to absolute moral norms that prohibit intrinsically evil acts by virtue of their object?” YES
