Latin Apologists Still Trying...

CWR: How should we think about Vatican II? Some have misunderstood this and accused the Council of a wholesale infidelity that uprooted the theocentrism of Christian faith. It is difficult to imagine a more ungrounded allegation.

Too Bare?

I doubt this is intended to be the end state of the temple, like the appearance of the modernist or iconoclastic interior of contemporary Latin temples. They will add more iconography as they can afford it, I would think.

A Foolish Attempt at Reform

That would disacredit any legitimate attempts at localized reform, including the election of clergy. Before such measures can be implemented there must be attention to the proper scale and a development of true mutual accountability as well as a life in common. Leave it to the Germans to pursue false "democratization" that will just speed the death of the German Catholic churches.

Controversy Over the Jesus Prayer

Related Posts: Metropolitan Kallistos Ware on Prayer and The Jesus Prayer.

Metropolitan Sotirios represents that overducated but unthinking hyper-rationalism that seeks to take away from tradition, rather than serving tradition. His three purposes of prayer relate to the order of intention, and do not need to be explicitly verbalized for the intentions to be present.

Regarding the name of Our Lord, Jesus Christ, both names together call to the mind the whole Trinity but the name of Jesus by itselfshould remind us of Trinity, as the Son is the Father's accomplishing of salvation for us, by the power of the Holy Spirit.
