*Starting on a positive note, our friends at Rorate Cæli report about the Clear Creek ordination, and there's a link there to some really nice images for your edification.
*Fr. Schmidberger, SSPX questions the "use" of Summorum Pontificum now that Archbishop Müller has been appointed to head up the CDF. I'm not so sure I can agree that the motu proprio now has no "good use", especially in relation to the greater traditional community. Müller is definitely a setback, but then again, are traditionalists used to anything less than setbacks?
|The Obama Campaign got what it wanted. We will see, come November 7th,|
just how much blood is on Cardinal Dolan's hands.
*At any rate, Cardinal Dolan had his big shin-dig... organized by Leftists? What are we supposed to think about the novus ordo mainstream? I find it sickening that Cardinal Dolan equated the Obama-invite to the Incarnation of our Blessed Lord. Was he trying to be funny, or is he really that egotistical? Does he believe that what he did last night holds any resemblance at all to what our Blessed Lord, in His teachings, in His miracles, in His Sacrifice on Calvary? Not once did Dolan demand that Obama stop sinning. Not once did Dolan explicate Catholic teaching regarding contraception or abortion, or how someone can be a party to another's sin. Not once did Dolan overturn some tables and starting beating people with a whip! Really! What would our Blessed Lord say to this? Cardinal Dolan was happy to crack some jokes instead of being the Christ-figure he's billed himself as being. There was absolutely nothing Christ-like about Dolan at this glad-handing event, but his hubris in thinking it was...? Now that speaks volumes about everything that is wrong with the novus ordo mainstream. It appears to be all about hubris and gratuitous self-serving. The only qualification for sainthood anymore is how much a person can contribute to the confusion. It's hard to believe that Dolan or any of his other friends can be billed as humble. Since when is humility marked by abrogating one's responsibilities to his office and to his faith? These church leaders will admit to any number of "mistakes", except, of course, for the mistake of wrecking the Church Militant in the wake of VCII.
*A lot of people have criticized me for my "promotion" of the GOP in the upcoming election. However, I'm not promoting any political Party here at Ars Orandi. Criticizing Obama? OH YEAH! He's a Socialist, and Socialism is the secular arm of Satanism. On the other hand, those in the Romney camp are no bundles of conservative joy, either. Mitt Romney (whose religion has no official position in regards to abortion) and (least it be forgotten, a CATHOLIC) Paul Ryan, believe, apparently, that murdering an innocent human being in the mother's womb ought "to be an option" in cases of... well, does the circumstance really matter? There is no justification! There simply is no good reason to kill an innocent, unborn child.
*However, this is the best we are going to get this election cycle, so I have to agree with Mr. Voris on this one.
