Here comes the conclave. The usual clerical gossip, and Modernist and secularist bloviations. Again, they say they object to the Pope’s power (classic Protestant argument), then give him a list of demands that would require power he doesn’t have! In other words they don’t have a clue about the church. You know what I want. A Benedict XVII or Pius XIII who makes Bishop Fellay a cardinal. (86 the council because of all the damage it’s done, but I’m fine with religious freedom. It’s Not About Latin™ — traditionalism’s really not about forcing a dead language on people — but my Mass happens to be in it, which is fine.) Anyway, a couple about ressourcement:
- Well-written reform-of-the-reform stuff from the Acton Institute. Back-handed tribute: the other side fears the church so they can’t stop talking about it. From RR.
- Modestinus: R3: reform of the reform of the reform. Or ressourcement isn’t the answer the church’s neocons thought it was. By the way the other day was, on our calendar, the feast day of the greatest theologian of all time, the basis of Benedict XVI’s talk at Regensburg. Reason means conforming yourself to reality, and logic points to the existence of God.
