Pope Francis’ letter to “the best hermeneutical interpreter of the Second Vatican Council.”

Here is something interesting.  His Holiness Pope Francis has written a letter to Archbp. Agostino Marchetto… again.

Marchetto has helped to break the monopoly of the “hermeneutic of discontinuity” types when it comes to the interpretation of Vatican II. the Bologna School mafia

This time, Francis wrote on the occasion of the release of Marchetto’s book on Pericle Felici who had been Secretary General of the Second Vatican Council.  Here is the story about what Francis wrote to Marchetto… this time. HERE

However, let us not forget the first time Pope Francis wrote to Archbp. Marchetto.  HERE

“I once told you, dear Archbishop Marchetto, and today I repeat it, that I consider you the best hermeneutical interpreter of the Second Vatican Council.”

At the time, this was a serious smack in the face of the discontinuity team.

I just thought I would remind you.

  1. Benedict Joseph says:

    Presently the “hermeneutic of intentional double speak intended for the propagation of parallel realities” is in place for the duration.

  2. Peter in Canberra says:

    several phrases spring to mind. ‘Talk the talk AND walk the walk’. ‘Talk is cheap’. ‘Actions speak louder than words’.
    sorry to be so bleak.
