Rorate Caeli put up a diatribe against Pope Francis.
After their informant rants like all the fires of hell against the anointed of the Lord with all sorts of innuendos (and one should be careful about that), the ultimate statement to which everything culminates in all ferocious spittle-flecked fury is this:
“He has no manners to honor the Pontifical Throne.”
Really? That’s like me! I would be such a donkey, braying badly. Shucks.
It’s almost as if to say, it seems: “Damned be the Holy Spirit, who has no power to work on anyone, ever, and so we are in bitter despair!”
One should be careful about this knee-jerk reactionary rubbish. It does the Church and the salvation of souls no good, no good at all.
Let us pray! With enthusiasm!
UPDATE: Also, just to say, if a priest came to me with that much bitterness, he would be the very last one I would want for a face for the Extraordinary Form. Of course, I would know that that would make him all the more bitter, but that wouldn’t be my fault. I would want to have any priest who offers the Extraordinary Form be helpful and enthusiastic in every way. That makes things easy. But with this kind of attitude. Just. No. If we want the Extraordinary Form everywhere, don’t do something like Rorate Caeli just did, striking out right from the get-go. That’s just not the way to go about things. Really. I know. I’ve been in extremely difficult situations in Lourdes, etc., but got the TLM going there, also in the Josephinum. But these guys…? Just. Wow.
