Of the two forms of the one Latin Rite Mass and the two forms of the popes of the one Catholic Church, which one of each, if progressives are consistent in their whining, would they think Vatican II never foresaw happening in the Post Vatican II Church? According to their whine, which one of each of the two types of Mass and Popes should be suppressed today? I report you decide!
The EF Mass, one of two forms of the one Latin Rite:
The OF Mass, the other form of the one Latin Rite:
At the Praytell Blog, there are those who post and those who comment (I comment often as the lone voice of reason :))who believe that the Second Vatican Council never foresaw that the Latin Rite of the Catholic Church would have two forms of the one Latin Rite, the Extraordinary Form and the Ordinary Form, what is now called the EF and the OF.
But the same pope who gave us the Extraordinary Form of the Mass (EF) along with the Ordinary Form Mass (OF) as legitimate organic development in Vatican II reform in continuity has also given us the Emeritus Pope (EP) and the Ordinary Pope (OP) too! I wonder if they disagree with Pope Benedict on that too? Do they see Pope Francis as illegitimate and not foreseen that we would have two popes in the one Catholic Church? Do they vociferously disagree with Pope Benedict in bringing this new reality about in the Catholic Church which Vatican II never, ever, ever foresaw, just as they say Vatican II never foresaw two forms of the One Latin Rite?
The Emeritus Pope (EP) and the Ordinary Pope (OP). Which one, according to the progressive Catholic's mentality is "illegitimate" and thus the modern "anti-pope?"
Is it the (EP) on the chair of Peter or the (OP) on the couch?
