ME! ME! ME!
I! I! I!
MINE! MINE! MINE!
We are living in an age when many people think they can do whatever the hell they want and there should be no consequences for them.
DO whatever they want? HAH! If only. They think they can BE anything they want, despite the obvious.
The only think that can’t be allowed is for someone else to disagree with them or point to the obvious.
Okay… whew. That felt good.
What set this off?
Peter Kwasniewski offered something at LifeSite which touches on the above.
He points out several seriously corrosive efforts underway, chief among them the systematic attack on the magisterium of Pope St. John Paul II.
He points to the absurdity of the divided situation where the divorced and remarried in Poland may not be admitted to Communion, but step over the border into Germany and they can be. Ridiculous, right? It is a symptom.
The unfolding of events has brought a welcome clarity: Belial hath no concord with Christ, the faithful with the unbeliever (cf. 2 Cor 6:15). Can anyone deny that there is a de facto schism in the Church?
