The Seven in Heaven: Meet the new saints to be canonized this weekend


PAUL VI AND THE CANONIZATION OF VATICAN II by Jake Neu

No in-depth look at the Pauline reform of the Roman Missal and its consequences.

"By canonizing John XXIII, John Paul II, and Paul VI, Pope Francis is embracing Vatican II and the changes it wrought in religious practice, devotion, the liturgy, administration, external relationships, and general outlook."

He already embraced Vatican II, or rather, a particular interpretation of it, and this is what is being pushed in the canonizations.

Edit. Guest Note: "Paul VI: the 'Pastoral' Canonization of the Spirit of Vatican II" -- by Fr. Pio Pace

One doesn't have to agree with the Latin traditionalists on liturgy and liturgical practice before he can agree with them on the Latin "progressives" and their attempt to claim Vatican II as their own. (Although there would be disagreement as to whether the progressive interpretation is the clear meaning of all of the texts, and intended unanimously by those drafting the documents.)

CWR Dispatch: Ouellet, Viganó, and the true beauty of the Crucified One by Dr. Adam A. J. DeVille
If Cardinal Ouellet, widely acknowledged as a brilliant theologian, wishes to follow Mother Theresa and “do something beautiful for God,” then I think there is only one thing needful.

CWR: Prominent Catholic astronomers discuss the proposed “Hubble-Lemaître Law” by Justin McClain, O.P.
“Hubble and Lemaître brought different and complementary insights to what would come to be known as Hubble’s law — Hubble the observations, and Lemaître the model of the cosmos that obeys that law. But Lemaître got there first.”

Interview with Archbishop Sample



Posting this more on his reflections about prayer and reverence in liturgical praxis than his apologia for the EF in Latin or his theology of Holy Orders (as I disagree with both). Young Latin Catholics have been deprived of much, but who is going to provide them with what they need?

Maybe the Anglican Ordinariates.

Not a Promising Future
