so why do we care about this critique, made irrelevent by several secret modifications since then?
On the 13th June, 2012, Cardinal Levada returned to our Superior General his text of April, but it was amended in such a way that it still took up, in substance, the propositions of September, 2011. Msgr. Fellay also made known to him that he could not sign this new document, which was clearly unacceptable. The coming General Chapter will permit the analysis of the entire dossier.
It looks as though what they are "analyzing" now is essentially the same as what was critiqued and rejected then.
No doubt with a little more dung added to the heap.
Mater & J.Paul, that's just too hilarious! Thanks for your comments.
We really have to take all this with much humour.
Dung heap! HAHAHAHAHAHA
A leopard doesn't change his stripes, and a scorpion will do what its nature demands.
+Fellay has endeavored to prevent +Williamson and +de Mallerais from attending
the General Chapter since their voiced opposition to any "practical agreement."
Bishop de Galarreta has been conspicuously missing from the spotlight, with a
rumor here or there from private conversations with him that he is not in favor of
making a "deal" at this time. I would like to think that he is keeping quiet so as to
give +Fellay no cause to try elbowing him out of the Chapter meeting. If he does
show up, at the ordinations tomorrow or at the Chapter next month, you know that
he will have an audience, because he is a bishop. It will look really BAD if he is
not given any opportunity to be heard. With the anxiety level what it is right now,
such a thing could be "the last straw."
We saw these same tactics used at the start of Vatican II: Step one, eliminate the
opposition. Been there, done that. It's time for action, folks!
