The great Springtime of Renewal promoted non stop by the modernist neocon Catholics, including all the way to the top, continues to sputter, falter and show continued signs of regression, not progression.
To think otherwise is to have the same psychiatric delusions of say, a Caitlyn Jenner. Just cause you want it don’t mean it will be so. If that were true, ESH would be the King of France. Yet we all know Hollande and his socialist friends won’t let ESH run things in Paris.
Read and weep. The Church in Amerikka is, and has been, missionary ground, if only the collegial conciliar fanatics would only have the same zeal for forming new vocations as they do for, say, ecumania and statements on the environment which they prefer to worship, rather than the Creator of that environment. Leaving them standing much as the profane, secular world that masonically worships man rather than the One, Triune God.
So Amerikka will import priests from Africa and Asia, if any remain after ISIS murdering ways. And some from places such as Poland, ravaged for decades by godless atheistic communism, now reeling as the West does from materialism, the flip side of communism.
On a positive note, despite the hostilities by the conciliar church leaders to conversion, a number of protestants (including former “ministers”) are making their way into the One True Church of Christ, several of them via the Byzantine and other Eastern Rites, where more sanity has prevailed since the revolution of Vatican II. But even there, all is not well. Ten years ago the Divine Liturgy of St John Chrysostum–the Mass of the Byzantine Rites–changed the millenial Nicene Creed to remove that long time bogey man of the Orthodox world, the filioque, conceding that the Holy Ghost proceeds from only the Father.
Only in the Traditional Rites does one see growth in vocations since the 1960s. One example: St Thomas Aquinas Seminary is bursting at the seems so much, that the SSPX is poised to open a new huge seminary in rural Virginia, moving that operation from Winona, MN where it has been for almost 30 yrs because they just cannot hold all the young men seeking a solid orthodox training and the insurmountable obstacle to heresy found in the Tridentine Rite Holy Mass. It’s getting hard for the dicosese of Richmond, VA to ignore them anymore.
In Pittsburgh, the SSPX took back once Catholic Sts James Church in the city’s West End right from under the nose of Bishop Zubik, after the diocese closed it in 2004. Zubik’s “inclusive” response was nothing short of a woman scorned with a fury reserved only to the faithful of Christ’s only True Church.
So much mercy, so much caring, sharing and “new evangeliszation” examples adorn these remains of the Novus Ordo’s “square earth society”.
