This week in ...

... The Catholic Herald

On pages 4 and 5 of this week's edition there are two headlines which caused the writers of this esteemed blog to have a flood of such opposing emotions we thought we should write about it.

On page 4 we read, SSPX accuses the Pope of being an 'anti-Semite'. Apparently Bishop Richard Williamson, Rector of the SSPX seminary in Argentina, wrote on his blog that the Pope's decision to change the prayer for the conversion of the Jews in the 1962 Missal was an anti-semitic act. There is no proof of this now as he removed it after being contacted by the Catholic paper but his reasoning appears to be that 'by diminishing Catholics' awareness of that real 'veil'' His Holiness has 'done a disservice to Jews' eternal salvation' and has therefore 'objectively shown himself to be against the Jews purely as Jews'. He asks, 'Is there any other possible true definition of the expression "anti-Semite"?'
At Orthfully Catholic we can only repeat what we have stated before about the Society and continue to pray for the Holy Father's efforts to bring them back into full communion.

On page 5 we read, Pope asks Jesuits to obey Church. We're still laughing! God bless him, at least he's taking note of his own encyclical and still has hope for the only Religious Order in the Church that currently practices the heresy it was founded to oppose.

I can't believe that anyone listens to anything that loon and his band of merrymakers has to say. And it has been repeated over and over.
