Support by the Catholic Laity for the Filial Correction of Pope Francis
0 have signed. Let’s get to 15,000.
On September 23, 2017, an international group of Catholic clergy and lay scholars issued a public correction of Pope Francis:
“Most Holy Father,” the letter begins, “With profound grief, but moved by fidelity to our Lord Jesus Christ, by love for the Church and for the papacy, and by filial devotion toward yourself, we are compelled to address a correction to Your Holiness on account of the propagation of heresies effected by the apostolic exhortation Amoris laetitia and by other words, deeds and omissions of Your Holiness.”
The full title of the document is Correctio filialis de haeresibus propagatis, which is translated as “A filial correction concerning the propagation of heresies.” It states, according to the authors, “that the pope has, by his Apostolic Exhortation Amoris laetitia, and by other, related, words, deeds and omissions, effectively upheld 7 heretical positions about marriage, the moral life, and the reception of the sacraments, and has caused these heretical opinions to spread in the Catholic Church.”

Because it appears that the authors of the document intended to include only the signatures of credentialed theologians, pastors, and scholars who could add the weight of their academic expertise to the cause, we have created this petition to be signed by any and every member of the laity, no matter their station in life, in support of their effort. We, too, believe that we must "protect our fellow Catholics – and those outside the Church, from whom the key of knowledge must not be taken away (cf. Lk. 11:52) – hoping to prevent the further spread of doctrines which tend of themselves to the profaning of all the sacraments and the subversion of the Law of God."
This is an informal petition of support of this effort, but every voice counts. Every signature matters. We hope you will join us in lending our own voices to this noble and worthy effort to defend Our Lord Jesus Christ, His divinely revealed truths, and the teachings of our Holy Mother Church.

Pope Francis (Vicar of Christ) (Vicar of Christ)
“Most Holy Father,
With profound grief, but moved by fidelity to our Lord Jesus Christ, by love for the Church and for the papacy, and by filial devotion toward yourself, we are compelled to address a correction to Your Holiness on account of the propagation of heresies effected by the apostolic exhortation Amoris laetitia and by other words, deeds and omissions of Your Holiness.”
It is with these words that the authors of the "Filial Correction" that was delivered to Your Holiness on August 11th, 2017, and made public on September 23rd, 2017, began their plea for you to correct those deviations from Divinely-revealed truth that have spread throughout the Catholic Church through your "the words, deeds, and omissions".
As a member of the Catholic faithful, I have signed this petition in support of the Filial Correction and its signatories, who take seriously their duty as Christian Soldiers to uphold and defend the divinely revealed truths contained in the Scriptures, upheld by Tradition, and taught through the Church's Magisterium. I make this appeal because I know -- as you do -- that the pope is not the author or owner of Catholic truths, but the servant of them, who owes his complete and total obedience to Christ.
Like the authors of that "correctio," I, too, recognize that confusion and error are now spreading unchecked through the Church under your watch and by your hand, and that only you have the earthly power to put a stop to this tragic crisis, which is causing so much harm to your flock. It is my purpose in signing this petition to bring to your attention this grave need, and to request that as the chief shepherd of souls you show true Christian mercy to those little ones being led astray, and put a stop to the chaos that now reigns in the Mystical Body of Christ.
Be assured of my prayers for you -- in particular, that you will be docile to the promptings of the Holy Spirit and seek in all things to accomplish the Divine Will.
