The Bishop’s discernment is always a community action, which does not disregard the richness of the opinion … of the People of God … In serene dialogue, he is not afraid to share, and even sometimes change, his discernment with others … with lay faithful , because they retain the “sense of smell” of the true infallibility of the faith that resides in the Church.
Also notice, that the Bishops may change their discernment under the influence of the laity ...
Does this mean "continuing revolution" in the words of the former Cardinal Mahony of Los Angeles?
Some of my friends in the Vatican II NewChurch act like the three monkeys:
Hear no evil.
See no evil.
Say no evil.
They are lacking in discernment because they will not see nor hear evil. How can they advise their bishops?
They have been told by their Jesuit confessors to put on blinders and never judge or see heresies, and certainly not to be holier than the Pope.
In addition, they are being told to stay in the NewChurch because it is better to be part of the solution than part of the problem.
So, I get phone calls from them, begging me to return to the NO Mass and urging me to join Opus Dei.
So, now they have become part of the BIGGER problem, which is the increasing secularization and modernization of the Vatican II New Church.
