Edit: while Team Bergoglio is celebrating the ancient mysteries of 1968, a Remnant, a pious leven is celebrating the Immemorial Mass of All Ages.
While the traditional liturgy was celebrating Christ the King of the Universe, Master and Lord of all things, Who reigns through the wood of the Cross and the infinite merits of His Passion, the official website of the Vatican published as headline news: “Synod Youth Thank Pope Francis with a Show in the Vatican”.
The photos published leave no room for doubt as to the atmosphere: the swaying hips of young people and princes of the Church alike speak louder than words. Young people dancing and even pulling several prelates into the dance with them in a grotesque and shameful farandole.
The evening before, on Thursday, October 5, Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle, archbishop of Manila, published a videogram. While snapping his fingers, he thanked the young people for teaching the bishops “important lessons about humanity and about following Jesus. I hope that you are going to continue teaching us and that we elders will have something to teach you” in order to build a new Church and a better world. A sad refrain, in which the teaching Church – the bishops are the successors of the Apostles – are in thrall to – sorry, I mean ready to listen to – the “people of God”. – What room does this leave for the revealed truths that make up the deposit of the Faith and that it is the bishops’ duty to transmit?
