A Statement on the Current Situation of Sacred Music

The Eucharist is a memorial of Christ's Sacrifice, initiated at the Last Supper.

Through the Middle Ages religious orders and monasteries had lay branches--cf. the Oblates of Benedictine monasteries and the Third Orders of Dominicans, et al. The Jesuits, however, and other post Trent Orders lacked any lay branch. In a way Opus Dei is a reaction to such lacunae.

Go with the Flow: Francis Quotes Martin Luther

Actually, even in their glorious days, the Jesuits' MO had much in common with Protestantism. It was balanced with a legalistic relationship with Rome, which has now largely does not exist.

Federal lawsuit details new rape allegations against McCarrick involving 12-year-old boy

The cover-up and/or refusal to acknowledge McCarrick's homosexual romps are examples of what was said by Fr Antonio Spadaro SJ, considered one of the Jesuits closest to the pope: In theology sometimes 2 + 2 = 5.

To cite the bull Unam Sanctam in the British House of Commons

Although I am not a great fan of Francis, it is important to realize that these problems did not begin with his papacy. Maciel, the pervert founder of the Legionairies, was promoted and protected by Sodano. Sodano was appointed by JPII.

C. S. Lewis and His Stepsons | Jonathon Van Maren

So what's the problem? If someone likes what Lewis wrote*, that's OK. But that's not the same as considering him a model of a believer.

He wrote, often effectively, against Liberalism.

* I have read his apologetic works (Miracles, etc.), and I'm not a great fan of them.

McCarrick Report Will Blame All On John Paul II, Spare Francis and Friends

McCarrick Report Will Blame All On John Paul II, Spare Francis and Friends

If so, it is merely a good example of such reports. They blame the dead and those out of power or with little of it. The authors tie themselves into knots to avoid offending any superiors. After all, there are mitres and red hats at stake!

Francis is an interesting specimen--a man disgusted by organizations but with a pathological need for the power they provide.

Schneider to Gloria.tv: Since Vatican II, the Majority of Catholics Have Fallen Away

He is of no influence in the US and Western Europe. The advantage of the Dominicans is that St Thomas is always in the background. The Jesuit version was Suarez (Who?), whose neo-scholasticism was opposed by Rahner et al.

Schneider to Gloria.tv: Since Vatican II, the Majority of Catholics Have Fallen Away

I used the Dominicans as an example--not the example.

Are you saying that in the Polish Dominicans there are famous men who sound like Fr Martin SJ? The Jesuits was very much influenced by Rahner and Fuchs (Amoris Laetitia).

Schneider to Gloria.tv: Since Vatican II, the Majority of Catholics Have Fallen Away

His endorsement of small congregations seems to be a vote for his own. The simple truth is that an institute like the Dominicans has more of a world wide influence than a small congregation (the Jesuits are gone).

@P. O'B
Cardinal Ratzinger was the first prominent member of the hierarchy to point out that there are flaws in the documents. Later, Cardinal Koenig and a Spanish Cardinal noted that Sacrosanctum Concilium (liturgy) was not very good.

In 1995 Cardinal Ratzinger also pointed out the Protestant influence on the Vat II concept of the Priesthood (cf Presbyterorum Ordinis).

The McCarrick Report: don’t get your hopes up

Organizations usually try to protect themselves. My guess is that anyone named in the report will either be dead, retired, or not one of the pope's favorites.

On the other hand, to preserve his power, Francis seems willing to throw anyone under the bus.

The second use of munus refers potestas iurisdictionis, which refers to Papal Authority (incl infallibility). Any bishop who resigns for any reason retains munus in the first sense but not the second. IMHO, BXVI understood this, and decided to refer to the Papal MInisterium.

One other point: The authority of canon law comes from the authority of the pope. The pope can implicitly dispense himself from its legislative authority.

OPEN LETTER to the President of the United States of America Donald J. Trump

I prefer the classical/medieval distinction between work and leisure, and play can be a part of leisure. Leisure in its purest sense refers to times in which the mind is turned toward what is True and Good in itself, rather than what is useful (cf. the Seven Liberal Arts)--thus a life with contemplation (either in the natural or supernatural sense).
