oh for pete's sake, bring on the schism

That was my reaction after reading this post on the truly awesome Lair of the Catholic Cavemen blog. I was born after Vatican II so I'm pretty tired of hearing about it. Please don't tell me how great VatII was, vocations are down, Catholics now act just like pagans and a lot of our nuns look like... well, I won't get into that.

Quit telling me that this is the new springtime, that's like urinating on my daffodils and insisting that it's really rain. It's clear that a significant portion of Catholics are stuck in the 1970s and they won't give it up. Instead of making us all suffer along with their antics I say bring on the open schism and leave the rest of us in peace. Mentally, they've already schismed. They're already Roman Protestants at heart. Why not just be honest about it?

Dymph, my friend... a schism will NEVER happen. Like Our Lady of Akita warned --- the devil wants to destroy The Church from within.

Anyhow, thanks for the link!

I'd say daffodils are better for urine than souls for V-II.

Can you beat it that Bergoglio when "canonising" Roncalli wavered necessity of second miracle (technically he could have done if he had been Pope) BUT did so with explanation that he considered V-II as equivalent of a miracle?

That is the day when I left off even slightly hoping the Pope's name would be "Francis" and started looking for Popes elsewhere again. Alejandro IX ... fine. Except he's a total Feeneyite. Leonard Feeney a saint, ok. Leonard Feeney's words repeated as dogma of Iglesia Católica Rimanente ... less fine.

At least if one has some wish and hope to see CSL or that greatgrandmother who died as a Lutheran (coming from Judaism) in Heaven.

Pope Michael is not a Feeneyite, but NEITHER is he exactly an Universalist.

Obama bowing down to Saudi King was bad, but Ratzinger (or at least Wojtyla) kissing a Koran was not better. And Pope Michael says so.
