"The risk of separation is serious. Look at the caricature of Tradition that calls itself the "Resistance", for example: it is a non-Catholic spirit that is almost sectarian. We wish to have nothing to do with it; it is a movement that is withdrawn into itself, with people who think that they are the only good and just men on earth: that is not Catholic. It is an objective, but relative danger."
Unfortunately, His Excellency puts up a straw man in his attempts to broadly dismiss the many priests and faithful that do not agree with the new orientation of the Society since the 2012 Declaration. His statement above alone is blatantly contradicted by Bishop Williamson in a sermon given just a few days ago. This can be heard approximately 24.5 minutes into the video here: www.youtube.com/watch .

The comments by Cardinal Maradiaga and Harvesting the Fruit have the same lacunae.
1) In so far as Christ is God, He is Pantocrakor.
2) In so far as He is Man, He is the Suffering Servant, the Victim, whose sacrifice was consummated with His Death on the Cross The function of His Human Nature in the Redemption, however, is not merely as Victim.
3) His triumph over Sin and Death was effected because Christ the Priest offered Himself as Victim in the perfect Sacrifice.
4) Thus the function of His Human Nature was both as Priest and as Victim.
5) NB: St Thomas says that the Redemption was effected by Christ's Human Nature joined as instrument (instrumentum coniunctum) to His Divine Nature.

Let me tell you something father,you are not at all alone thinking in this way of the present "pope Francis",but you must do an effort and have a lot of courage to admit that this so call pope is not any more a true Catholic pope,this is very difficult to admit but we must have the strength to stand for Our Lord Jesus Christ and denounce publicly to Jorge Bergoglio,who obviously cannot be a true Catholic pope for the kind of his teaching that it is not the one that was proclaim for our Savior,for the apostles,the Magisterium of the Church for almost 2000 years, and the popes.He is scandalizing continuously,speaking senseless,ridiculizing the Holy Church for the enjoyment and happiness of the traditionally enemies of the Church,as the mass media,politicians,protestants,masons, and evidently the greatest enemy, the evil one.For that,I humbly think, the negative feeling that you experiment while celebrating the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass you must to mention his name.

Bergoglio is not a catholic, but an ecclesiastical freemason which main task is to drag as many catholics into apostasy..hE IS THE BIBLICAL FALSE PROPHET, THE DESTROYER PREDICTED BY ST FRANCIS !!!

@DrJoe, thank you for your insightful analysis. To a large degree you are asking one basic question, i.e.: "How can it be that ...?" I ask you to suggest an answer. A Jewish colleague of mine once noted that Pope Francis is more interested in saving the world than saving souls. The MEGAmegachurch is in accord with Pentecostalism and its whoopy-up emotionalism and the Pope shows sympathy for Pentecostalism (even at one point asserting an equivalence between Catholic baptism and Pentecostal water pouring, viz., baptism). If I accept, reflect upon and theorize on my colleague's impression of the "saving" activity of the Pope, such encounters make prima facie sense. Not the Holy Mass, rather an "event" (imitating a megachurch EVENT) is apropiate. Your reference to the Parteitag of the Nazis is excellent and I have already made the comparison in a comment below. I have watched a documentary on the 1938 celebration and the whole mass of people there, normally reserved and thinking Germans,…More

The < -slm- > in Islam means < subjugation/submission. Islam is first and foremost neither a religion of peace nor of war. It is a religion of power, i.e., subjugation. The subjugated are to surrender in th form of submission. Submission ceritifies in the mind of the islamic believer that the one submitting is weak, unworthy and, hence, the object of subjugation. When the Pope says that "meekness" is the right way to respond the Pope inadvertently has rendered "submission" and thereby certified in the Islamic mind the correctness of the previous acts of subjugation. At times it is hard to distinguish between a feigned meekness and an obfiscated cowardliness.

One thing you failed to mention Father and that is that all these things happened on all four post conciliar pope's watch. Caveat: I am not blaming all the ills of society on the pope.
