Concluding the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, Pope Francis said today:
“It is a bad thing that Christians are divided, Jesus wants us united, one body. Our sins, history has divided us. For this we must pray that the Holy Spirit bring us together again". - Angelus message.Is anyone listening?
Probably not anyone associated with The Remnant and other 'restricted' sites.
I was reading a blog post from a writer who recently challenged Mark Shea on Facebook over something 'gay' related. No surprise there. I noted the critic referred to Shea as a neo-Catholic. I never really knew for sure what that meant - but it made me wonder, 'how can there be unity among Christians when the Catholic Church is divided into factions?'
I Googled neo-Catholics to find out what it means. I got more than I asked for from The Remnant.
Neo-Caths, Rad-Trads, Trads, Progressives, oh my!
The terminological problem is that two groups of Catholics claiming to be "simply Catholic" differ markedly and sometimes dramatically in matters of theology and praxis, a development not seen until after the Council. The termsneo-Catholicism and neo-Catholic are intended to express the difference between traditionalists and those Catholics who adopted progressive theological views and new practices after the Council even though the Church has never actually commanded any Catholic to do so. The resulting dynamic tension throughout the ecclesia between two essentially orthodox constituencies, one of which did not exist a half-century ago, has no parallel in Church history. - Remnant

Not interested ... how's that for disinterested.
I don't think little children
make these types of distinctions.
I like this from Little Therese:
"I leave to great souls and lofty minds the beautiful books I cannot understand, much less put into practice and I rejoice that I am little because children alone and those who resemble them will be admitted to the heavenly banquet." - S. Therese of the Child Jesus
