Talking to Derek Olsen and others about the rumoured motu proprio

Modernism doesn’t work
...transformation of life does not occur because a person has affinities for the teaching of a nice guy who died in a political accident a few thousand years ago. Rather, transformation happens when a person encounters the resurrection power of the Living Christ. This the Christ we proclaim in every Office and every Mass, whom we take into ourselves in every Eucharist.
Indeed — if one means the Resurrection really happened and this isn’t meant or spun as ‘historical Jesus vs Christ of faith’ rubbish spoken in code to ‘fool the proles in the pews’ (I’m not accusing Derek of that).
