And now, back to business. Because nothing gets me happier than making blood boil, I present this commentary on my latest SSPX take found on the Free Republic boards:
The article you quote is at Word to the Continuing Econians.....To whoever wrote the above text: Princess, you are the pot calling the kettle black. Look in the mirror, sweetheart.Hmmmm... "The Vatican should stop referring to the 'excommunications.'" Schismatics, give me a break.Rocco's so pastoral. He reminds me of people who bring up, years later, mistakes someone made, character defects and wrongs. Friends in AA call this, resentment: re-feeling the anger or other emotion. It ain't healthy, whether someone's an alcoholic or not.
Whatever happened to calling a spade a spade?
Ironic that he quotes 'stop referring to the 'excommunications' and then throws the 'schismatics' term into the discussion. A major reason for the meeting was to heal the division in the Church: how to get to a better place. Rocco? He's mired in the past.
But, gratefully, there is some sanity to be found on the famously loud Freeper:
"My impression right now is that the SSPX is "making demands" a little too stridently. You can't get a rapprochement that way. "Agreed.... Who seeks to quibble?
Agreed. The SSPX, in its usual arrogance, seems to feel it is the Catholic Church which will have to get its house in order and reconcile itself back to the SSPX. Objectively speaking, the SSPX is a disobedient sect who has left the Church.
