So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter (2 Thess. 2:15). Guard what has been entrusted to you. Avoid the godless chatter and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge, for by professing it some have missed the mark as regards faith (1 Tim. 6:21-22).

Cardinal Schönborn. Wuh?

How is it that a Cardinal Archbishop of the Holy Roman Church can in one situation demonstrate perfect decorum, and in another... ? Well, take a look at the images below, and you, dear reader, perhaps you will find a connection.

Would it be fair to suggest that said Cardinal is doing the Lord's work among the "here comes everybody" household that is the Catholic Church?

Is participating in a farce condoning a farce? By participating in a liturgy marred by abuse, does that lend approval of/to said abuse?

Our priests, deacons and bishops, to this day, are too often the prisoners or at the mercy of the proponents of the highly unfortunate 'Spirit of Vatican II' kulturkampf in the Church. Some clergy definitely bear responsibility for enabling liturgical abuse. Others, rightly dedicated to their vocation, attempt to shepherd their respective flocks with charity and truth. The latter, truth, often gets pushed to the side, however, when a strong hand at the liturgical tiller directing the parish boat toward liturgical authenticity, for the sake of souls, would be the more appropriate exercise of one's sacerdotal office.


Ordinations at Heiligenkreuz
or this...?
