As if the Church has been in stasis for 50 years.

Talk between William F. Buckley Jr. and Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen from 1970. His answers sound incredibly contemporary and not entirely satisfactory.

Archbishop Sheen can be forgiven for his hopeful outlook, believing the Church would eventually be enriched upon the implementation of the Vat. II "vision." But, we know that our optimism was a terrible mistake. Thank God there were a few who rejected the bastardization of the liturgy and religious life immediately. God bless Archbishop Lefevbre!

"Antipope Bergolio's"... @JamesMindlessYerian original flavor of "Jimmies" :D "Jimmies" are lies and easily swept up. Like so:

There must be a pope for an anti-pope to challenge.

A pope who resigns is no longer pope. Further, there has to be opposition from that "lawful pope".

In this case, Benedict is not the lawful post and he fully acknowledges the validity of his successor.

"I'm grateful to be bound by a great identity of views and a heartfelt friendship with Pope Francis. Today, I see my last and final job to support his pontificate with prayer."

That's a direct quote from Benedict.

Benedict calls him "Pope Francis" by name and promised "to support his pontificate with prayer."

Also "When Francis came up to him to greet and embrace him at the start and end of the ceremony (a Consisatory on 22 February 2014), Benedict removed his zucchetto as a sign of respect and also to show that there is only one reigning Pope."

Still, I love these old tins. Look great on a spice-rack in the kitchen.

"The same problems then are the same problems now." @History Perfesser Jimmy Quote the Vatican's fixation with "global warming" and "climate change" from fifty years ago. Put up or shut up.
