Just yesterday, I typed this:
Everything will continue to accelerate. These people will be further emboldened with each brazen move that goes unchallenged, save for the dozen bloggers who will call it out. They must be even more amazed than we are at the pathetic lack of response. And we already know the next target is Infallibility, because if they crack that, it’s open season.
Okay, so I got that last part wrong. First, we are going to ordain women to the diaconate.
“Pope Francis has announced he will create a commission to study the possibility of allowing women to serve as deacons in the Catholic church, signaling an historic openness to the possibility of ending the global institution’s practice of an all-male clergy.”
Do you think there is a possibility that the outcome of the commission could already be predetermined?
In her twin gem postings last week, Hilary White had such an insightful comment about +Francis. Not only was he inevitable, not only do we deserve him, but he is also exactly what we need – no, really. He has pulled the mask off – the Great Facade is finally exposed for all to see and which no one can now deny. Unless they intend to surrender all intellectual honesty, the Hermeneutic of Continuity crowd will now have no choice but to admit they got it wrong, as I did for so many years. The infestation has reached the point that it cannot be rooted out except by taking a flamethrower to the whole place. Remember, it’s way bigger than just +Francis: a majority of the bishops voted for all the nastiest bits at the synod, even if some parts did not get the 2/3rds majority.
Pope St. Pius X, pray for us.
