Skojec?:It is also important to consider how the young Joseph Ratzinger, coming of age in Germany, was an early victim of the weaponised propaganda of the CIA and corrupt clergy - Fathers Felix Morlion and John Courtney Murray.

    Nearly thirty years ago ABS was part of a trad study group in Portland, Maine and we all read the book in question here and al of thought it heretical.

    Here is a quote fromThe Roman Catechism;

    +++++++++++++++++++

    Faith Excludes Doubt

    The knowledge derived through faith must not be considered less certain because its objects are not seen; for the divine light by which we know them, although it does not render them evident, yet suffers us not to doubt them. For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath himself shone in our hearts, that the gospel be not hidden to us, as to those that perish.

    ABS sticks with the Great Commentary of Cornelius a Lapide and the Dogmatic Treatises of Rev Joseph Pohle because a soul is a terrible thing to waste

  2. Agreed, ABS. Of great importance is what Prof. Livi and many others have noted:

    "Ratzinger, even when he became prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, never felt the need to revise or modify the content [of this book]. In fact, in 2000 he wrote that his book could well be titled "Introduction to Christianity, yesterday, today and tomorrow", adding:

    "The basic orientation was, in my opinion, correct, hence my courage today in once again placing the book in the hands of the readers" ("Introductory essay to the new 2000 edition", in "Introduction to Christianity", and cit., p.24).

  3. It is also important to consider how the young Joseph Ratzinger, coming of age in Germany, was an early victim of the weaponised propaganda of the CIA and corrupt clergy - Fathers Felix Morlion and John Courtney Murray.

    What he had to say publicly when he visited America was shocking in that it revealed his fundamental orientation - America as a model.

    Yikes.

    P.S. ABS found this blog linked to a 1Peter5 and he will be reading it regularly.

  4. ABS, thanks for the link. It will take a while to work through, but a first glance says it looks provocative. To me it's hardly surprising that Ratzinger should be a fan of The American Proposition, since he and his Modernist co-believers would have seen the American Spirit as an ally in their war against the Establishment of Church and State--I write hastily. It's unfortunate that, while there are plenty of books out about the rise and origins of Liberalism (Pierre Manent comes quickly to mind, but there are many others) there appears to be so little written that specifically relates this to the Modernist movement in the Church.

    Re this blog, you will see that it isn't updated regularly, but there is (I hope) no lack of food for thought in the archives. Until recently I've avoided commenting on current Church affairs simply because it's too depressing. However, you'll also see (above) that I've long had these views re Ratzinger and have written about them in the past.

    Finally, I do highly recommend the link: Jean Guitton and the Modernism on II Vatican Council: Reply to the Report from Brescia. It was originally written in Italian by a Brazilian and the English version at the link can at times be a bit difficult to follow. So I'll make this offer to anyone who reads this: I've done a revision of the English version which I'll email to anyone who's interested.

Vox Cantoris vs. Aqua

The Catholic Monitor commenter Aqua had this to say to the Vox Cantoris website: Aqua said… Fred, your topic here reminds me of a dust-up, a few days ago, on Vox Cantoris. He asserted that it is our duty as Christians to wear masks to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass if the government tells us we must, or they will close our Churches. My response to him was that I find it inconceivable that an orthodox Catholic, such as himself, would ever submit to unjust dictates from secular government over how we approach Our Lord in Holy Mass. My response to him was that the Mass belongs to Catholics and we decide, within the bounds of Tradition, and in accord with the Word of Jesus, how we conduct ourselves in Holy Mass. Only one authority prevails over Mass and that is our God and the Sacred Tradition given by Him to guide us in all times and places. Understand, there is nothing inherently wrong with wearing a mask to Mass. But there is EVERYTHING wrong with wearing a symbol

Mainstream Media: "Is America the Real Victim of Anti-Russia Sanctions?" & "Biden's arrogant anti-Russian sanctions have amounted to a price hike on working class Americans that have so far failed to weaken the Russian economy"

  Mainstream Media Acknowledges Biden’s “Arrogant” Sanctions On Russia Are Damning Americans:     @MaxBlumenthal Biden's arrogant anti-Russian sanctions have amounted to a price hike on working class Americans that have so far failed to weaken the Russian economy. His neocon policy accelerates the process of de-dollarization, diplomatic isolation & imperial decline. The mainstream new outlet asked "Is America the Real Victim of Anti-Russia Sanctions?": Remember the claims that Russia’s economy was more or less irrelevant, merely the equivalent of a small, not very impressive European country? “Putin, who has an economy the size of Italy,” Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said in 2014 after the invasion of Crimea, “[is] playing a poker game with a pair of twos and winning.” Of increasing Russian diplomatic and geopolitical influence in Europe, the Middle East, and East Asia, The Economist asked in 2019, “How did a country with an economy the size of Spain … ach
