Action Item: Calling Upon All Catholics to Respond to the Dubia

In light of the recent dubia of five Cardinals to Pope Francis and the latter’s unwillingness to provide clear responses in accord with the Catholic Faith, the organizers of the Missae pro Missa campaign issue the following statement calling upon all Catholic faithful throughout the world to respond to the dubia as a public testament to the Church’s constant and unchangeable teaching.

Whereas, five Cardinals of the Catholic Church submitted dubia to Pope Francis asking for clarification of Catholic doctrine on matters of critical importance for the salvation of souls, especially in light of confusion surrounding the “Synod on Synodality.”

Whereas, Pope Francis’ initial response did not resolve the doubts raised but “if anything, deepened them,” hence requiring the Cardinals to issue reformulated dubia requesting simple, yes/no answers “to elicit a clear response based on the perennial doctrine and discipline of the Church” (Aug. 21, 2023 letter of the Cardinals to Pope Francis).

Whereas, Pope Francis has not, to date, responded to the Cardinals’ reformulated dubia, thus enabling confusion and error to spread, to the harm of souls.

We, simple Catholic faithful, wishing to testify to the truth of the Catholic Faith regardless of the Supreme Pontiff’s willingness to do so, hereby provide the correct responses to the dubia in light of the Church’s constant and unchangeable teaching.

We furthermore pledge our prayers and sacrifices, in the form of a spiritual bouquet, for the good of the Church and triumph of the Catholic Faith over the darkness of the present age, praying especially for the day when Peter will cease to be a scandal unto Christ because he “savourest not the things that are of God, but the things that are of men” (Matt. 16:23) but rather fulfill the divine command: “being once converted, confirm thy brethren” (Luke 22:32).
