Where were you clerics (Vigano) when you were present at VII Council. Your mea culpas are meaningless now. You were "duped" because you had no backbone. None of you stood with Archbishop Lefevre when he rejected it. It amazes me that no bishop opposed the radical changes to the Roman liturgy.

Nah! Just scrap it. Just look at the fruit, nothing else to say.

Sorry Bishop Schneider: John XXIII was a Freemason. Critique of Vigano disregarded

There are other problems in the Council's documents, nevertheless. Especially in the Dignitatis Humanae and the Nostra Aetate. You can conceive some type of constructive relation towards other people, but not in the way this problematic documents treat the issue, as if there is no need for Christ, as if there is no inspiration of the Spirit, as if there is no beed of the Cross and the Resurrectio…More

The point of the Lumen Gentium about the Kingdom of Christ, that, according to LG, on earth SUBSISTS in the Catholic Church: it is true that many understand that as to mean that there is a difference between the Church and the Kingdom. I don't think so: I subsist in myself, I am a substance, something that is IN and BY himself. So, if you are a metaphysical dualist, you understand that as …More

I don't think so: I subsist in myself, I am a substance, something that is IN and BY himself. So, if you are a metaphysical dualist, you understand that as meaning that there are two things, the consciusness and the body, a la Descartes. If you comprehend reality as it is, like Saint Thomas and Aristotle, the problem disappears.

Well the freedom of religion thing is complicated, VERY COMPLICATED. What, are you about to going to India and tell the folk there that they have no right to be hindus or to the US and say that pluralism is, from now on, cancelled? Or, from another perspective: when did conversion to the Catholic Faith became mandatory and enforceable by arms? Or when did the right to search and pursue the truth …More
Well the freedom of religion thing is complicated, VERY COMPLICATED. What, are you about to going to India and tell the folk there that they have no right to be hindus or to the US and say that pluralism is, from now on, cancelled? Or, from another perspective: when did conversion to the Catholic Faith became mandatory and enforceable by arms? Or when did the right to search and pursue the truth became ilegitimate? Unfortunately, monsignior doesn't know much about philosophy, if he did, he would know, as Saint Thomas and Saint Paul, that you can know GOD with your natural reason, so you can be "the law for your self, when you uphold the law", because it's also natural. So, when you read that pagan religions are of the devil, that has to be understood in context: all religions have elements of truth, since truth is adequatio intellectus ad rem. The problem is that the devil seizes our ignorance, weakness of intellect and wickedness of apetites due to original sin. So, religions are good and are a testimony of the natural inclination of man towards God, that the Author of nature wrote in our being.... So, I could keep writing but I hope you get the point. There is only one religion founded by God as the way to Salvation, there is only one Mediator between God and man, but the others have rights to get to that faith freely, and in their own way, that is the one the Spirit points...

@F M Shyanguya I read the document, It's pretty good. I'm glad it exists, it's exhausting, some times, to try to explain these things to certain types of peoples. Thank you!

@eticacasanova Adding to your [freedom of] religion comment, looking at human history, and one can quickly see that religion is ubiquitous and sown into the very fabric of society.

Therefore, it wasn’t separation of Religion and State but of Church and State. It was all about getting rid of true religion and replacing it with the enemy’s, and the faithful never caught on to that and in fact,…More

Yeah, every single society in history, civilized, barbarian or whatever, has been born out of a religion and social crises are crises of meaning, of religion. This deal of the "separation of ..." is sick and antisocial... It is unique in history and is possible only for the mysterium iniquitatis...

That's the Christian deal, go and evangelize, but respect freedom

If councils teaching in faith & morals can be corrected - they can’t, the Church is infallible in what she teaches in faith & morals, and in councils it is her in her supreme teaching - then The Second Vatican Council, the Church’s 21st Ecumenical Council, is still uncorrected and therefore is in better standing than the councils “already correct…More

I don't quite understand; in the article, Bishop Schneider says councils can be corrected or criticized, and gives several examples. On what do you base your claim that councils cannot be corrected?
F M Shyanguya
“Bishop Schneider says councils can be corrected or criticized, and gives several examples.” That’s where he is in error or has been simplistic.

My saying so? Simply:

Think of the Apostles Council, the one in Jerusalem, what were the decrees from that Council, the prototype for the rest that followed?
philosopher
I think what bishop Schneider means by correction, notice he says "explained", is clarification of clumsy wording that leaves no room for a heterodox or semi-heretical interpretation vis a clarification that confirms the Deposit of faith handed down through the Apostolic Tradition. Such a corrected understanding -Syllabus is greatly needed for Church.
F M Shyanguya
@philosopher has spoken! 🙏.

I was thinking today of the post-conciliar Popes, Pope St John Paul II and Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, a great philosopher and a great theologian respectively, great and brilliant minds, and both holy men. And they miss the “errors” of V2?!
F M Shyanguya
Another approach:

Who is the inspirer and principle author of Scripture - The Holy Bible being the Church’s book? Does is contain error? Yet how many have stumbled by misinterpreting it. Cf. The number of biblically based Christian denominations [don’t they hold the inerrancy of Scripture?].
