I'm astonished every time I hear a Catholics gaga for the "Vatican II" pablum and heresies tell us they made fruitful improvements to Christ's Church.
Even if one were incapable of understanding how they robbed people of Sanctifying Grace and salvation, you would think they would be able to look at the empty pews, compare it to full pews pre-Vatican II and draw the logical conclusion that they did catastrophic damage. Even if they could not see the spiritual insanity they imposed upon Christ's people, numbers don't lie.
Yet they are continuously patting themselves on the back.
Here is another episcopal imbecile to tell us he thinks people are reading the Bible more since Vatican II.
I think the Word of God should influence and inspire our thinking, and I have seen a lot of development and improvement over the past few years," said Cardinal Tagle. In earlier decades he had the impression that the interest in the Bible was not so great, which had changed after the Second Vatican Council. "They read more in the Bible, they demand good, content, inspiring sermons, which I see as a very good sign."
He actually says people are demanding sermons that inspire them to be faithful to Church teaching.
He sees people reading their Bible more and begging him to talk about Theology of the Body and Humanae Vitae.
SMH. Go home Cardinal Tangle, your drunk.
Just goes to show you how the devil convinces you of things that don't exist.
People get uncomfortable when I say we were all safer when the episcopal see was protecting pedophiles, but we all heard it in Scripture yesterday:
What I say to you in the darkness, speak in the light;
what you hear whispered, proclaim on the housetops.
And do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul;
rather, be afraid of the one who can destroy
both soul and body in Gehenna.
Out of the entire See, there are only four cardinals who have the courage to do something about the one who is destroying soul and body. I suppose we shouldn't complain. There have been times in Church history when there has been less than four. The "saint for the week" in this week's bulletin was Saint Irenaeus.
"After St Irenaeus had spent a number of years in combat against the eastern gnostics and philosophers of error, Saint Polycarp determined to send him to Gaul, where many of the heretics of Asia Minor had already migrated to pursue the Catholic religion which was beginning to find roots there. With a company of about forty Christians, the valiant soldier of Christ ascended to the Rhone to Lyons to rejoin and aid Saint Pothinus, its bishop. Saint Pothinus was already advanced in age, and his church's neophytes could not always distinguish truth from the gnostic aberrations. Saint Pothinus received the apostles with joy and soon ordained Saint Irenaeus. A hundred times he exposed himself to martyrdom by his zeal, acting as the right arm of the aging bishop, but God was reserving that crown for him twenty-five years later...
This great Doctor of the Church wrote many important works. By his preaching, Saint Irenaeus in a short time converted almost the whole country to the Faith."
St. Irenaeus was martyred in the year 202. His feast day is June 28th.
O Lord, protect us from all dangers of soul and body, and through the intercession of the blessed and glorious ever-virgin Mary, Mother of God, Saint Joseph, your holy apostles Peter and Paul, Saint Irenaeus and all your saints, mercifully grant us health and peace, that your Church may triumph over all enmity and error to serve you in security and freedom. Through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
