Posted by: Randal Mandock - Jun. 09, 2012 4:01 PM ET USA Current problem: we have hit 262 worshipers at our 9:00 SundayMass. The fire marshall only allows 300. An increase in the numberof traditional parishes would help relieve that situation.Additional benefits would include not having to drive more than 100miles each way to get to Sunday Mass, greater access to a localpriest in the case of emergencies, and greater strength in numbersto effect a post-Vatican II renewal in the right direction. PopeBenedict has made heroic strides: pray for him. |
Posted by: GymK - Jun. 09, 2012 2:34 PM ET USA What ever happened to "Humility?" After reading the entire article(Interview with Bishop Bernard Fellay on relations with Rome.(DICI) I have the odd feeling that the SSPX leader might just betrying to stop the deal. Perhaps he doesn't actually want to bereunited with Rome(?) Otherwise why would he insult the Pope's goodefforts for unity with this interview in his own meadia outlet. Godhelp the well-intentioned folks inside the SSPX if this is howtheir leader acts and speaks! Posted by: justinswanton2559 - Jun. 09, 2012 1:37 PM ET USA Very in-depth and very balanced.
Brace yourselves, folks: the realfight over the Catholic identity in Catholicism is about tobegin... Posted by: jimgrum697380 - Jun. 09, 2012 8:45 AM ET USA "Like its holy Patron, the Society of SSPX has the desire to restore all things in Christ . For my part, I know only onething: it is always the moment to do God s will, and He makes itknown to us at an opportune time, provided that we are receptive toHis inspirations..
Everyone can join in asking for the grace tobecome docile instruments of the restoration of all things in JesusChrist."-Bishop Fellay. He also reiterated: "Yes, the pope is theone who wants it.." Fellay is no Farley. Posted by: frhugh1967 - Jun. 09, 2012 5:35 AM ET USA That is a major 'fault' in the Church today; not implementingVatican II. Until that happens i.e.
we all follow where the HolySpirit is leading the Church, we will remain deeply flawed. Posted by: DrJazz - Jun. 08, 2012 8:41 PM ET USA If Sister Margaret Farley (or any other liberal) said of herrelationship with the Church, "We are still not in agreementdoctrinally," no devotee of the SSPX would respond by calling suchstatements "both promising and...accurate." Posted by: jimgrum697380 - Jun. 08, 2012 7:05 PM ET USA The comparison is surprising in that these situations are theproverbial "apples and oranges." There has been a new receptivenessthat is not specifically known due to confidentiality but that hasboth the Holy Father and Fellay expressing optimism.
Fellay hasrepeatedly admitted that the pope's generosity has been bothunexpected and genuine. The evidence to date suggests somethingmuch more interesting and remarkable than the surprisinglyinadequate, albeit cursory, commentary suggests. Posted by: rpp - Jun. 08, 2012 1:53 PM ET USA In contrast to DrJazz, I see Bishop Fellay's statements as bothpromising and, well, accurate. I think he is trying to address thegenuine issues that many of the leadership of the SSPX haveexpressed regarding the potential for reconciliation with the HolySee, while at the same, address issues that may cause the SSPX tosuffer serious internal disputes should a reconciliation beofficially announced.
I see this statement as real progress toreunification. Posted by: Contrary1995 - Jun. 08, 2012 1:31 PM ET USA Blessed John Paul II knew what he was doing. Posted by: DrJazz - Jun. 08, 2012 7:37 AM ET USA So, they're no closer to an agreement than on the day they left theChurch.
They're just one more group of disaffected Catholics...takea number and stand in line with the liberals.
