LET'S NAME THE TYPE OF CLERICALISM THAT IS CAUSING SCHISM AND CASTROPHE IN THE CHURCH ALL ALL ROOTED AND ROTTED IN THE 1970'S AND THE NOSTALGIA FOR THE 1970'S OF POPE FRANCIS
This is what Cardinal Mueller told Raymond Arroyo last Thursday night about the catastrophe we are experiencing:
“This goes back to the ‘60s and ‘70s,” Müller explained. ‘There was an [attitude that] Jesus preached love and we don’t need laws in the Church.”
“But this is stupid because we are a communion of men,” he continued. “Love comes from God, but we can become sinners or we can do crimes, and therefore the Church needs ... this [system] of penalties against its members, especially against the clergy.”
“We must return to the old system,” Müller stated. “It was better. The old law in the canon law must be reestablished for overcoming this crisis.”
Yes, I remember the "new morality" I was taught in the 1970's. Pope Francis enunciates it very well today. The "Who am I to judge" mentality of the pope is 1970's through and through.
So is contempt for doctrine, thus the liberals of the 1970's did the best they could do to produce catechetical materials that had no substance other than feel good Catholicism, what many call coloring book cathoicism devoid of substance, doctrine, dogma, tradition and the 10 Commandments. The Beattitudes were emphasized as having supplanted the 10 Commandments.
The liberals of the 1970's laid the foundation to lawlessness. Being a doctor of the law was as bad in the 1970's and Pope Francis sees it today. This means the Church doesn't need canon law, only Christ's love of God and neighbor.
This the the ideology of rupture with the Church prior to Vatican II and the new Church of love that was promoted and Pope Francis has recovered.
The arroganance of the 1970's liberal/progressives is embodied in Pope Franics. The harshest, judgemental terms were reserved for traditionalist Catholics in the 1970's and this is the case today too with Pope Francis. Just think of the names His Holiness has attributed to traditionalists since day one. Just think of who is marginalized in this papacy.
Until the clericalism of the 1970's that tried and still tries to destroy the Catholicism of the ages is named for the monstrous infection of the Church that it is, nothing will change in the Church for the better. It will get worse and the Church smaller, but not more faithful.
