«WE WILL BE AMONG THOSE WHO HAVE SEEN AND YET BELIEVED». THAT SINGULAR CONCEPT OF «SCANDAL» OF THE SUPREME PONTIFF …
From Saint Paul VI to Benedict XVI, for sixty years we have had Supreme Pontiffs who with exhortations and documents have repeatedly recommended the use of the cassock to the secular clergy, today we have a Supreme Pontiff who mocks the cassock together with the priests who wear it.
— News in brief —
Now let's see who doesn't scandalize the Holy Father
Here is the grotesque image of a Church totally de-sacralized by those priests who praise an unspecified "Church open to all" …
And to think that several have died, so as not to take off the cassock …
The young Rolando Rivi died a martyr by refusing to take off his cassock, today it would have been a "rigid" destined to cause a "scandal"
"The great march of intellectual destruction continue. Everything will be denied. Everything will become a creed. It is a reasonable position to deny the stones of the street; will become a religious dogma to reaffirm. It is a rational argument that it takes all immersed in a dream; will be a sensible form of mysticism say that we are all awake. Fires will be stoked to witness that two plus two equals four. Swords will be drawn to show that the leaves are green in summer. We will find ourselves defending not only the incredible virtues and the incredible sense of human life, but something even more incredible, this immense, impossible universe staring at us in the face. We will fight for visible wonders as if they were invisible. We will look at the grass and the skies impossible with a strange courage. We will be among those who have seen and yet have believed " (Gilbert Keith Chesterton, Heretics, 1905)
