“For Pope Francis, you see, Summorum Pontificum wasn’t an act of justice that clarified the fact that the Traditional Mass had never been abrogated; affirming that the Mass of Ages remains sacred and venerable for all generations.
Rather, for him, it was simply a prudent way of dealing with the sensitivities of ideologues, and truly little more than an act of “patience and kindness to people who are addicted to a certain fashion.””
– Louie Verrecchio, “Wake Up…”
Dealing with ideologue sensitivities. I couldn’t agree more.
The best defence, is a good offence my friends. Louie has bobbed, weaved, and delivered a devastating body blow in his bang-on commentary.
Perhaps… just, perhaps… “traditionalists” (aka Catholics) need to carry themselves publicly in a way that would make the modernists who have infiltrated the church feel more than a little uncomfortable.
I dunno about you, but this most recent blog post by Mr. Verrecchio is just drenched in Christ-like charity. And the charitable punch-to-the-solar-plexus-parting-shot is one with which I couldn’t agree more! Here it comes. Crunch down, tighten your abs, get your damn hands up! – “Yes, wake up calls can be a bitch, I know… but we’re far better off dwelling in a harsh reality than resting in a hopeful fantasy.”
