On top of this the Pope has: <BR/><BR/>* Sent three cardinals to the conference in Canterbury, including one of his top aides from the Vatican, to act as personal intermediaries between the two churches; <BR/><BR/>* Let it be known that he does not support the defection of conservative Anglicans to the Roman Catholic Church; <BR/><BR/>* Given behind-the-scenes support to the Archbishop of Canterbury's attempts to hold together the conservative and liberal wings of the Anglican Church, including at face-to-face meetings in Rome.lance1http://www.blogger.com/profile/17805763024729570231noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6570809348314913884.post-64937859129394059702008-07-09T04:12:00.000-04:002008-07-09T04:12:00.000-04:00No pope approved SSPX sect.

Please notice the ecumenical activities and statements of Pope Benedict.<BR/><BR/>Example; <BR/><BR/>Benedict XVI, Address to 250 Representatives of about 10 different “Christian” denominations at Ecumenical Meeting, April 18, 2008: “Through you, I express my sincere appreciation for the invaluable work of all those engaged in ecumenism: the National Council of Churches, Christian Churches Together, the Catholic Bishops’ Secretariat for Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs and many others… I thank you all.”[<BR/><BR/>And why would Pope Benedict receive a blessing from a Rabbi? <BR/>Or for that matter, bless a Rabbi?<BR/><BR/>"With deep humility, I asked for a blessing and was blessed. I also asked for the pope's permission to bless him and was authorized to do so," Rabbi Sobel said.<BR/><BR/><BR/>Also, The Balamand Agreement agreement, which agrees not to " convert" the orthodox ? This 1966 quote as to the meaning of that Vatican II decree is very much a part of Benedict XVI's theology.<BR/><BR/>What work of ' salvation' for souls to enter the One True Church is being done here?<BR/><BR/>The Pope in fact does need the SSPX, and since Pope Benedict recognizes as ' within" the Catholic Church those churches not in Union with the Rome i.e. the Roman Pontiff, the SSPX to retain the Catholic Faith of our Fathers, does not need Benedict XVI.Lance1http://www.blogger.com/profile/00562883544870028821noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6570809348314913884.post-84077843663452404522008-07-03T14:42:00.000-04:002008-07-03T14:42:00.000-04:00Lance, you quoted Joseph Ratzinger from 1966.Can w...Lance, you quoted Joseph Ratzinger from 1966.<BR/><BR/>Can we also judge you on your religious and political convictions of 42 years ago?

You are rightly convinced that the usus antiquior is not a museum piece, but a living expression of Catholic worship. If it is living, we must also expect it to develop. Our Holy Father is also of this conviction. As you know, he chose motu proprio – that is on his own initiative – to alter the text of the prayer pro Iudæis in the Good Friday liturgy. The intention of the prayer was in no way weakened, but a formulation was provided which respected sensitivities." Cardinal Castrillon when he was in London.<BR/><BR/>And- “The Catholic Church has no right to absorb the other Churches... [A] basic unity — of Churches that remain Churches, yet become one Church — must replace the idea of conversion, even though conversion retains its meaningfulness for those in conscience motivated to seek it.”[10] <BR/>Theological Highlights of Vatican II, Joseph Ratzinger, (New York: Paulist Press, 1966), p. 73.Lancehttp://www.blogger.com/profile/16345133112694598671noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6570809348314913884.post-63635568861108962132008-07-01T12:11:00.000-04:002008-07-01T12:11:00.000-04:00For those of you who can read Italian, see here (w...For those of you who can read Italian, see here (www.rinascimentosacro.com) the very good point by Fr.

The bitterness felt by this same clergy towards the Pope and his Summorum Pontificum, and I can only guess on the post-SP comments of Cdl Hoyos indicates that there is a fight occuring in the Church for its very soul. <BR/><BR/>Pope BXVI does indeed understand the wreckage, I might add. He's written about it. I don't know the spiritual journey he took from his VII days to now, but since he's been in the CDF, he has empathized with our pain as if he knows it personally.Michaelhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/06369787843059493544noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6570809348314913884.post-17209773382953757532008-07-01T00:05:00.000-04:002008-07-01T00:05:00.000-04:00Mr. Downey,Remarks such as your will not be allowe...Mr. Downey,<BR/>Remarks such as your will not be allowed here.
