Catholic World: Pope Pius XII "Preparing an Official Condemnation of [Architects of Vatican II] Murray, Jacques Maritain"

Did Pope Pius XII implicitly condemn Vatican II?

In 2008, the liberal Catholic World admitted that Pope Pius XII was "preparing" to condemn probably the main architect of Vatican II Jacques Maritain and another architect of the Council John Courtney Murray "who "played a role in... Declaration on Religious Liberty":

"[T]he Holy Office was preparing an official condemnation of Murray, Jacques Maritain... only the death of Pope Pius XII on October 8, 1958... prevented this from happening."
(Catholic World, "Censuring of John Courtney Murray Part Two," March/April 2008)

Maritain is considered by many the architect of Vatican II. The indisputable top architect of Vatican II Pope Paul VI said:

"I am a disciple of Maritain. I call him my teacher.

If Pius XII hadn't died of two stokes on October 8, 1958 it is possible that Vatican II might never have happened since its main architects would have been condemned.

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.

I would be interested to know what propositions of Maritain the pope was about to condemn.

Jacques Maritain I think was a sincere Catholic who was a naive fool and completely misread the American situation in the 50s as being friendly to the Church. He mistakenly thought the secular liberals would be convinced by his brand of natural theology Thomism and convert to Catholicism.
I've always been suspicious that John Courtney Murray was an Americanist. Interestingly enough there is a scholarly work that links him to the CIA's attempts in the 50s and 60s turn Catholic clergy into promoters of the Americanist heresy. The book is called: "John Courtney Murray, Time/Life, and the American Proposition: How the CIA's Doctrinal Warfare Program Changed the Catholic Church."

Flashback: Virtue Signaling Francis Trads did to Frank Walker what RINO "Conservatives" are doing, now, to Trump

For Virtue Signaling Banning the Mass Francis Trads is Frank Walker the New Trump?   March 25, 2020 British conservative Daniel Hannan said: "Virtue signaling is competitive. When all your friends are anti-Trump, you have to go further." After President Donald Trump took office the liberal virtue signaling was very competitive with them, calling him every name in the book with death threats as well as 12,000 Tweets for his assassination and the famous Kathy Griffin's beheading Trump photo. After Canon 212 publisher Frank Walker made a headline which he later admitted he made a mistake on it appears that banning the Mass Francis traditionalists decided to join in the liberal-like behavior in a frenzy of virtue signaling against him. The Francis trads like the liberals are very competitive in their virtue signaling. Remember, when all your friends are anti-Walker, you have to go farther. The banning the Mass Francis traditionalists have issued num

"Catholics for Trump" Taylor Marshall has sure Gone Dark on the Subject... Wondering... Whole concept of Bogus Elections (as per Francis) is just a Bridge Too Far

For a guy who headed up a group called "Catholics for Trump," Taylor Marshall has sure gone dark on the subject in recent days.  His "What If Trump Loses?" show features his claim of not giving up, but all he has really said all week is to focus on our own spiritual lives. Nothing wrong with prayer and penance, to be sure! But I can't help wondering whether the whole concept of bogus elections (as per Francis) is just a bridge too far. Important Note : The publisher of the Catholic Monitor has made a pledge to say the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary everyday for a Rosary Lepanto-like victory for President Trump. He asks all CM readers to make this pledge. " THE HOLY ROSARY, MOST POWERFUL WEAPON AGAINST THE ENEMY OF GOD AND MAN... Saint Pius V ordered the faithful to recite the Rosary to impetrate victory from God in the epic battle of the Christian Armada against the Turk in the waters of Lepanto: still today, at noon each day, the bells rin

“They lie to us, we know they're lying, they know we know they're lying, but they keep lying to us.” - attributed to Alexander Solzhenitsyn

  Robert Barnes Retweeted Cerno @Cernovich “They lie to us, we know they're lying, they know we know they're lying, but they keep lying to us.” - attributed to Alexander Solzhenitsyn, and while the sourcing isn’t confirmed, it’s certainly more accurate today than ever in the USSR.
