Mary Ever-Virgin: Suggested Reading For ++ Mueller
Writing about the impressive (as always) reaction of the SSPX to the astonishing appointment of the goat as head-gardener, Christopher Gillibrand of Catholic Church Conservation (a fountain of wisdom and useful information these days, I have already mentioned his blog posts more than once) has, almost as an aside, a most useful observation.
As the Holy Father is now in Castelgandolfo to reflect about his self-inflicted troubles and the Vatican activity comes more or less to a halt, I think Gillibrand’s suggestion would make an excellent summer reading for the newly appointed Archbishop
Goat Bock Mueller.
I give below the suggestion verbatim. I merely allow myself to notice the insistence of the author for a word with which the newly appointed guardian of Catholic doctrinal orthodoxy seems not to be very familiar, not even after the extensive research one imagines necessary before publishing a book with one’s name on it: dogma.
Text as follows:
I can always send the new CDF a copy of Mariologia by Father Benedictus Henricus Merkelbach OP. It has three extensive chapters on these matters.The first beginsDogma fidei est Matrem Dei fuisse Virginem ante partem et in ipsa conceptione Filii sui(it is a dogma of the Faith that the Mother of God remained a Virgin before birth and in the Conception of her Son.The secondDogma fidei est Matrem Dei esse virginem in partu(it is a dogma of the Faith that the Mother of God remained a Virgin at birth)The thirdDogma fidei est Matrem Dei esse virginem post partum(it is a dogma of the Faith that the Mother of God remained a Virgin after birth)In summary!Triplex Virginitas Mariae scil ante partum, in partu, et post partum est de fide.He can return it only if a a letter is attached saying that he gives assent to the teaching of the Church in all ages but our own
