There was no effort made by Wojtyla or Ratzinger to bring the Mohammedan infidels into any sort of union with anyone except their Modernist, all-for-one, one-for-all baloney.
To say that equating the Quran and the Bible in terms of respect is the same thing as equating the Summa with the Bible is laughable. Simply absurd.
The Bible is a product OF THE CHURCH; the Church was not born FROM the Bible, the Bible was born FROM the Church. Likewise, SAINT (notice the emphasis?) Thomas Aquinas was and is considered the Angelic Doctor of the Church, and her greatest theologian after Our Lord and His Apostles. The Summa, then, may also be considered a product OF the Church and thus worth of incredible respect.
There is no sense in which the Summa is EQUAL to the Bible in terms of its content, because it does not contain, for instance, the Words of Our Lord, but in terms of its benefit to the Church, the Summa is far above many, many other works of the saints.
In other words, to honor the Summa as a great, praiseworthy and venerable gift of God to the Church in CONCORD with Holy Scripture is not out of the question.
To honor the Quran, which calls Christ Jesus Our Lord all sorts of blasphemous things, and calls Our Lady unprintable, disgusting things, is wrong on its own for any person. To VENERATE the Quran by kissing it or otherwise making obeisance to it IS HERESY. There is NO sense in which the Quran deserves to be honored AT ALL, let alone with the veneration of a (supposed) Pontiff of Holy Church.
If romantheology and his kind ever thought that Wojtyla was a faithful Catholic, that one instance of his veneration of that vile book of excrement should be enough to prove that he was a pertinacious heretic and NOT a valid Pope. Disgusting, to say the least.
The quote from St. Catherine deals with the Pope's PERSONAL weaknesses or sins, not those against the Faith and certainly not public material heresy like was demonstrated by Wojtyla. I will be the first to admit that Popes, bishops and everyone else can be sinful, even terribly so, at times, but NOTHING excuses the abandonment of the Catholic Faith like that criminal did.
St. Francis of Assisi, preacher of the Faith to the infidel Sultan, pray for us.
Immaculate Heart of Mary, triumph soon.
Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us.
