"Today Our attention is directed to one of the most common of them (abuses), one of the most difficult to eradicate, and the existence of which is sometimes to be deplored in places where everything else is deserving of the highest praise; the beauty and sumptuousness of the temple, the splendor and the accurate performance of the ceremonies, the attendance of the clergy, the gravity and piety of the officiating ministers. Such is the abuse affecting sacred chant and music."- St. Pius X, Pope
Pope Francis to move forward against the will of "ultra-conservative" but promises not to follow the pattern of Mohammed
When people use the words "ultra-conservative" or "radical traditionalist" to describe faithful Catholics they actually reveal themselves for what are:
Take this writer for example, I follow the Catholic faith which I was taught by my mother and father. Growing up in the 1960's I was taught the faith in school by good Catholic Sisters of St. Joseph and faithful priests. That faith, is what I continue to practice.
Yet, it is that faith that these dissenters, modernists and heretics condemn as "ultra-conservative" and other such insults and epithets.
According to Inés San Martín , Pope Francis has vowed in a
new interview that he won’t be slowed down by resistance from
“ultra-conservatives” in the Church who “say no to everything,” insisting, “I’m
going ahead without looking over my shoulder.”
The pontiff also suggested he has no intention of launching
a crackdown on the opposition, saying, “I don’t cut off heads. That was never
my style. I’ve never liked doing that.”
Thank you, Pope Bergoglio, for not following the paths of the Mohammedan
