What does it mean for my salvation, let alone my fathers?
I have tried so hard to
understand, Why Vatican 2" I can neither find a real good reason nior have I been able to read of one
why it was occured. The Pope who ruled it must happen made the
decision practically overnight. He opened it and according to his own
words “went back to his office” and left it to the Bishops
watching it on the “Telly” as he did other work. He ordered, yes
he did, it was not to change any dogma. The Bishops decided that they
could not form a pastoral council without changing dogma. Canon
Moeller wrote this in the book, “Vatican 2, An Interfaith
Appraisal”. The Council decided the Church needed to be purified.
When did this happen that the Church is both sinful and a sacrament.
No wonder we are all at se(a)e over sin. We were taught the Church
cannot sin but the Churchmen do. Off course if we are all catholic,
baptized by some strange desire which we never fulfill, it surely
needs purifying. Another strange twist against the Church teaching on
the baptism of desire. It is very strange for me to read that other
pseudo catholic, other christian sects are Catholics because although
they do not want to be but they desire to be. A great statement made
by Bishop Oxymoron. No wonder they give the Eucharist to all and
sundry who present themselves at our altars. Look at the statement
again the Church needs to be pure. If so then there is no Holy
Spirit. I ask therefore what spirit was there?
I learnt my faith and
Catholic Beliefs from and was taught by logical teachers who were good Catholics. Those who lived in our parish I often saw them at confession and knew
by their example how a catholic should attend the sacraments daily.
One or two I saw often at the early morning worker's mas. I can only see and know my father
and his beliefs, by the new standards of Vatican 2, are diametrically
opposite to the new and changed teachings of 1965. The mass never
forgave mortal or grave sins except venial sins were taken care of by
the priests words as my teacher called it the little absolution. Yet today's Church says it does. This prayer or blessing was said
twice during the Tridentine mass. It was the Indulgentiam
absolutionem et remissionem. Now we find the mass of the catechumens
replaced by the penitential rite and the I confess is treated as an
act of perfect contrition by uninterested laity. Or as I have been
told the sign of peace is an act of the forgiveness of sins or as a
priest told me all sins present are forgiven at the words of the
consecration of the Blood. Do not tell me I am wrong I have asked other parishoners. I have learnt from women who say they have not been to confession for thirty years. One said she did not need to. She was a good catholic. Why priest do you not ask them yourself or is the sacrament of confession not so important anymore? Do you think what I write is not of any help? Wad not Vatican 2 all about empowering thew laity? I ask you again am I to consider my Father
is now a heretic and was all his life? Do not bother to write me a noted theologian told me I was just getting in the way.
What did the Anglicans think of it. Canon Pawley called it in the book, "The Second Vatican Council, Studies by eight Anglican Observers" and he revels in two things. How the observers from other faiths were able to fashion the council into seeing their views and that overnight anglicam missionaries in South America had acess to the people that they never had before. We can certainly see there sucess.
Should I point out how easy it is for evangelicals etc can now steal baptised catholics in lands where the blood of our martyrs fertilized the rocky grounds. Look at the USA catholic immigrants, legal and illegal rush into the US, our Bishops use the growing numbers of them to make the Catholic Population seem fruitful and yet social reports show they ate only here ten minutes and they become evangelicals and pentecostals. It es said statistics are lies. Yet the figures published by Pew and other statistical groups tell a different story than our bishops. Is this true? You say not aznd I ask why then a synod on evangelkization if we are not loosing our catholic souls to other denomenations? We, if we were honest, would publish numbers which show, the lost, the fallen, the forgotten and practicing catholics.
Why not take this blog give it to your parish priest and ask for an explanation. Do you think you have fortitude to ask or do you not have any interest in the matter? After all it is onnly part of the second great commandment.
Do you think priests that I need not confess I have not loved my heighbours as God has loved me? Do you think He, our Lord will judge me harshly for my views? What will you say if he asked you about yours?
