You ready to belong to an “ underground” church? The Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church survived underground for 50 years. Here is A video of Mass by underground priest: Fr. H Budzynski. He is a symbol of the Fidelity of Ukrainians to the Catholic religion.— John Stone (@Johnthemadmonk) October 7, 2020
1) Be careful what you wish for— Fr. David Paternostro, SJ (@DavidPaternostr) October 7, 2020
2) If done well, though, this would absolutely slap
3) I am v sympathetic to Stump’s view that Aquinas saw his Scriptural commentaries as the pinnacle of his theology—from first to last, a Master of the Sacred Page https://t.co/pKiCqWQj5Q
Panagia Chalkeon in Thessaloniki is a cross-in-square church built by protosphatharios Christophoros in 1028. The Last Judgment on the vaults of its narthex is one of its best preserved frescos pic.twitter.com/GCMuQ3qZBz— The Byzantine Legacy (@ByzantineLegacy) October 7, 2020

No, @washingtonpost - the Catholic charismatic renewal is not "A Handmaid's Tale," but started in 1967 & enjoys favor from @Pontifex Francis.

Has any and all harmony between Vatican I and the central thrust of the reconvened Second Vatican Council now been extravagantly jettisoned?
Back in 1870, Vatican I self-immunized against rapidly pandemic ideologies by affirming, clarifying, and circumscribing—neither modernist nor ultramontane—the dogma and reality of “papal infallibility,” as part of the living Tradition dating forward from St. Peter under the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit (Mt 16:17) and Pentecost (Acts 2:1-31).If what was written by Vatican I wasn't ultramontane (enough), what more would the ultramontanists have wanted? (For the pope to have the right to exercise political authority over the whole world and not just a "spiritual" authority?) What was actually written by Vatican I (and Vatican II) is already too ultramontane for the rest of the Church Universal. I'll have to dig out my copy of The Gift of Infallibility.
