I learned today that Francis appoint Jeffrey Sachs – who is seriously into population control (gosh! I wonder how they want to do that?!?) – to the Academy for Social Sciences.
That, from the guy who issued the cruel Traditionis custodes. That will be his legacy. His very own Plessy v. Ferguson document and it is all on him.
If you think these two data points – Jeffrey Sachs and TC – are not connected, think again.
Meanwhile, we read at Messa in Latino that Polish bishops, during their ad limina visit, brought up TC with the Congregation for Divine Worship.
Warsaw’s Archbishop, Kazimierz Card. Nycz, says:
“In the Congregation it has been admitted that the question has been resolved too harshly and instead of serving unity, in individual cases, it could lead someone to leave the Church”.
And we are still waiting for the other shoe to drop: an instruction on how TC should be implemented.
Connect the dots.
Remember that Francis and crew have been systematically attacking and destroying the magisterium of John Paul II. The JP2 Institute for the Family is but one instance.
People associate the freeing up of the Traditional Latin Mass with Benedict XVI and rightly so. But the groundwork was laid by John Paul.
Think it through. The so-called “Ecclesia Dei” communities entrusted themselves, first, to John Paul II, who made provisions for them.
While JP2 himself wasn’t all that interested in traditional worship, in his pastoral concern he extended himself to these people. He implored, even commanded by his Apostolic authority, from bishops a generous approach to people who desired the traditional forms.
The attack on the Vetus Ordo is also an attack on John Paul II, not just on Benedict.
It is an attack on their persons not just their policies.
