"But from the very beginning Ratzinger saw and denounced the distortions of this reform. He went so far as to write: “They are the dead burying the dead, and they call it reform.”
I am very interested in the use of the word 'DEAD' HF Benedict is a theologian and Pauline adherent Paul as a Jewish Doctor of the Law (theology) used dead in the context often, which we have forgotten or in today's church never were taught, of Ezechiel 18: 4, "All souls are mine" in the Septuagint. Figure it out, its the symbolism that counts. So I will help you with a question. Does the Holy Father see the reform as sin and the supporters in a grave sin dead to Christ?
