Battle Lines

Hat tip to Fr Justin and to CathCon both of whom have discovered an American piece of Suppository-like drivel, but Suppository-like drivel from a source that carries great influence in the United States.

But we should be pleased: the Pope's opponents are coming out of hiding and setting out their battle lines. They have chosen the Liturgy as the field on which they wish to fight, no doubt because they believe the Pope is not the Liturgist they know themselves to be.

2008 is going to be a really good year: this battle has got to come, and the Pope's enemies, who have woefully underestimated him so far, think that they can bring the faithful with them. Our job is to provoke our Hierarchs into declaring themselves.

Our Lady of Victories, pray for us!

Our Lady of Defeats, pray for them!

Influential? I couldn't say. All I can say is that I don't think I've ever met anyone who reads the thing, except to see what sort of tomfoolery they'll come out with next.

What they have always known in Rome is important for all of us to know: Liturgy is the visible expression of the arrangement of power.

There it is: the "hermeneutic of revolution" - the Antichurch.
