Another Jesuit Blind To The Death
I stumbled upon just another of those deluded articles by deluded old clergymen living in the dream of Vatican II as the medicine for almost every ill, when they are literally dying of it.
In just few paragraph, this chaps manages to touch all the usual topics of the people of his ilk: he mentions the abuse scandal when he criticises the Church (tick), tells us of a need for “profound changes” (in his direction) shared by people who don’t go to Mass anyway (tick), sees in Vatican II not the cause of the problems, but the solution (tick).
Where the senselessness becomes comedy is, though, in the matter of liturgy, where he manages to say that even Pope John Paul II was “restrictive” in matter of liturgy.
JP II “restrictive”? Compared to what, Woodstock?
Unsurprisingly, our chap sees Benedict as utterly wrong in the matter, even going as far as to say that “returning to the pre-Vatican II liturgy is a fool’s errand”. He must be right of course, as the continued increase in Mass attendance and the sharp rise in vocations among his own – and liturgically savage – Order in the last fifty years shows.
Ah, his Order. What will such a chap be, you will ask?
A Jesuit, of course! What did you expect?
