Greetings from the catacombs!

I have been unusually active on Facebook the past several days, so I want my dear readers–all five or six of you–to know that in the next few days, I’ll be transplanting a number of ideas and arguments from that site to FCA for your craven consumption. Thank you for your prayers, and let’s keep praying that the Extraordinary of Pistoia is not a trainwreck.

  1. Too late, B.C.

    In 1962-65 B.C.E. we first began to notice the extended train wreck that is the shadow church and as the wreck continued, we were able to identify fewer and fewer traditional box cars and we have now reached the point where even the most zealous ultramontanes are forced to squint to find solace; Hey, isn’t that a caboose? Yep sure is; and look, there is our humble conductor, smiling and waving at the cripples. Why are the rad trads so mean?

    Dylan could have been singing about the shadow church:

  2. None dare call him a prophet but M.J. avers that, soon, Fr. Z. will begin to interpret Francis through Bishop Spong.

  3. Tony Jokin says:

    I am feeling so disappointed right now after reading this.

    Maybe I am seeing things but it feels like he is calling people who are against his radical policies (“surprises from God”) an “evil generation” that can’t see the “sign of the times”. Basically, the traditional teaching and praxis of the Catholic Church (“which the theologians had formulated over the centuries”) is the root cause of the problem here and it is what must be condemned.

    I feel that the Pope twisted the words of Jesus here beyond the original message to fit his agenda. Not that I should be surprised given the abundant hints that this was coming but still… I feel disappointed and even angry!

  4. Tony. The Bishop of Rome desires the Episcopacy smell like the sheep and he is just trying to get you to smell like he desires you smell; that is the reason for his rhetorical manure spreading.

    Be an artful dodger; it is our Church just as much as it is his.

Be kind, be (relatively) brief, be clear...
