Feast of the Most Holy Name of Mary
On September 6, a 'Mariological' conference was held in Rome. The CNS published a report on the conference with the title, "Misreading of Vatican II led to 'collapse' in Marian devotion, studies."
The post-Second Vatican Council upheaval and decay is always blamed on the so-called 'misreading' of the Vatican II documents. Sickening as it may seem, though, yet, it is only an unequivocal admission that it is falsehood that is prevailing in the official institutional 'Catholic Church'. Where and how does the See of the Truth, the Chair of Peter, stand? Pope Paul VI could only speak of a "day of darkness" (cf., our post "Our Lady and the Diabolical Campaign"). Pope John Paul II could only lament "with feeling of deep pain, that Christians today in large measure feel lost, confused, perplexed, and even disappointed" (cf., ibid.) and, in his homily at Fatima in Portugal on the occasion of the Beatification of Francisco and Jacinta, exhort the faithful not to have anything to do with the dragon whose tail (cf., our post "The Year that was 1929") dragged down a number of the stars of heaven (cf., ibid.). But Pope Benedict XVI, he could only insist on the Modernist method of a mere shot on the possibility of an impossibility, the so-called 'hermeneutics of continuity': a reconciliation between two contradictories - Sacred Tradition and Modernism (cf., our post "'Partisans of Error'"); forgetting that it is an absurdity to engage in a sort of rational demonstration to prove or disprove something that is already self-evident, especially for one who has a truly Catholic sense - not halting between Catholicism and 'liberalism'!
'Misreading'? There are two distinctions. One, Pope John Paul II was clear: "Ideas opposed to the truth which has been revealed and always taught are being scattered abroad in abundance; heresies, in the full and proper sense of the word [that is, formal heresy - distinct from material heresy; also, formal schism and material schism] have been spread in the are of dogma and morals [see, for example, the Novus Ordo 'Catechism' on homosexuality in our post "The 'spirit' of Vatican II on Homosexuality"] creating doubts, confusions and rebellions; the liturgy has been tampered with..." (in our post "Our Lady and the Diabolical Campaign"); the so-called Vatican II 'spirit', though fallen, can not be underestimated to be dumb and no longer harmful as the New 'Catholic' Theology would have us believe (cf., our post "The Ultimate Delusion of Vatican II 'Catholicism'") when in fact it re-entered with a revenge* (cf., Mt. 12.45) more vicious. Two, the 'liberal' spirit is deceitful; he does not know bounds yet pretends to be a respectful 'Catholic' and so we find in the Vatican II documents his trick: Yes, but...
* Pope St. Pius X was only able to drive it underground. Pope Pius XII tightly muzzled it. But, Pope John XXIII fulfilled what was written: ... A star fall from heaven, and there was given to him the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit: and the smoke of the pit arose, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun [cf., the commentary of St. Augustine in our post "The Great Tribulation"] and the air were darkened [cf., Pope Paul VI's statement above] with the smoke of the pit. And from the smoke of the pit there came out locusts upon the earth. And power was given to them, as the scorpions of the earth have power (Apoc. 9.1,2-3) - he let free those who bore the mark of the Church's insidious enemies and even allowed them to take the role of periti (or theological experts) in his Vatican II Council!
And from the smoke of the pit there came out locusts upon the earth. And power was given them, as the scorpions of the earth have power (Apoc. 9.3). Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ associates scorpions with the activity of Satan (cf., Lk. 10.19) and the power given them "primarily means [in Scriptural language] regal 'authority', the right to exercise some magisterial [that is, teaching] office over others" (Fr. H. Kramer, The Book of Destiny, Imprimatur by Joseph Mueller of Sioux City, Iowa on July 26, 1956). No wonder why it is falsehood ('misreading') that prevails. "It is painful to see such a great disorientation and in so many persons who occupy places of responsibility... the devil has succeeded in infiltrating evil under the cover of good... in leading priests and religious... into error... They are blind men guiding other blind men" (Sr. Lucia, C.D. in our post "Our Lady and the Diabolical Campaign"). "A sentiment of confusion... spreading among the children of the Church, even among the best ones, and sometimes also with the most qualified, who exercise the greatest authority [that is, the Pope!]" (Pope Paul VI, discourse of December 3, 1969, in ibid.).
