Why reconciliation with the conciliar Church is highly unlikely
Many have heard the Vatican spin on a reconciliation with the Lefebvrists of the Saint Pius X Society and how willing the Holy See is to receive them into the conciliar Church. But that is the rub that greatly concerns the superior general of the Society Bishop Bernard Fellay who asks what is Rome afraid of. The answers are the bishops who do not want reconciliation with the SSPX, led by Walter Cardinal Kasper for they realize the followers of Lefebvre will not accept the aberrations that have been allowed to be promulgated throughout the world. The bishops already have by and large ignored Pope John Paul II's Ecclesia Dei. Why then would they accept a reconciliation with those who would expose the facade perpetrated by the modernists? As Bishop Fellay points out, there can be no compromise with regards the Faith. For his letter to Ecclesia Dei president Cardinal Castrillon Hoyos, see Exspectans exspectavibus ECCLESIA DEI
Death of one of the architects of the conciliar Church
August 6th is the 23rd anniversary of the death of Pope Paul VI, 262nd successor of Peter, whose pontificate lasted 15 years. It was Paul VI who forged onward with a progressive bent and brought the Second Vatican Council to its conclusion on the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception in 1965. Much of what has been proven true since then does not bode well for a favorable reflection on his papacy. In 1975 he celebrated the 25th Jubilee. He also instituted the Bishops Synods and allowed clerical dress other than cassocks to be worn by priests, thus relaxing even further the disciplines of the Church. As might be expected, many abused that privilege, becoming ashamed to wear the Roman Collar. One of the few tributes to his pontificate was the masterful encyclical Humanae Vitae which was scorned by so many and began the split within the Church between those who remain loyal to the teachings of the Church and those who choose to disobey and follow their own will.
