See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains. - James 5:7

50th Anniversary of Vatican II



Believe it or not, I'm re-reading sections of Archbishop Weakland's memoirs concerning the events which took place and/or resulted because of Vatican II.  I'm reading Weakland's memoirs as the synod in Rome convenes and bishops wonder how it all went so wrong. Smile. Like they don't know

While Cardinal Wuerl puzzles:
"Somehow we were to be catechizing without content," the cardinal said, describing what he called a widespread attitude at the time. "Somehow there was supposed to be communicated some experience, some idea that God loves us, we love God, but it wasn't rooted in the creed..." - CNS

 
You don't say.

Editor's note: I apologize if I sound negative, but someone just sent me a link to a defamatory article about a retired Cardinal.
