WRONG WITH THE CATHOLIC CHURCH #89
abdication of Pope Benedict XVI could easily be due to failing
and stamina. However, his recent final homily as Pope was a
against the "disarray" in the Church and thus raises other possible
reasons. For he has been party to the dismantling of the
"aggiornamento" (ie, bringing up to date) of Vatican ll, and the
consequent disillusionment of large segments of the Laity, the "Body
the Church". And he was party, as was most of the leadership of the
Church, to the decades-long Obstruction of Justice perpetrated by the
sinners within their own ranks. There's your "disarray".
In fact, the First Letter of Saint Paul to the Corinthians, read at all
on January 27, 2013, describes what would happen if a body, one but
"many parts", would see one part rise up against another part.
And we all have seen some of that in the Hierarchy's immoral and
handling of the clergy sex scandals. So, now let's see if the
has learned anything. Let's see who the College of Cardinals
the next Pope..and whether they realize the crying need for meaningful
in the Church: in its procedures and in a couple of its ill-conceived
Magisterial tenets. Let's see...and let's Pray.
