Up until the Second Vatican Council, the Church consistently taught that unity can only come about not when different sects put aside doctrinal questions but when non-Catholics give up their erroneous ideas and embrace the one true faith.
Liturgist Dr. Kwasniewski wrote that Pope Francis' altering of Canon Law to allow female lectors 'commits a double categorical error by conflating the dignity of the baptized with the dignity of active liturgical ministry.'
In 1982, Pope Benedict XVI (then-Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger) called some of the documents of the Second Vatican Council a 'counter-syllabus' to Pope Pius IX's and Pope St. Pius X's syllabi and encyclicals against the heresy of Modernism. How should we Catholics interpret such a statement?
In his latest essay, Archbishop Héctor Aguer writes that Pope Francis' frequent disparagement of priests departs from Church teaching on the ministry and life of priests and targets those more loyal to Tradition.
'On the other hand, the canceled priests... have the providential opportunity to join the Passion of the Lord and not to harbor feelings of hatred, but to strengthen themselves in hope and discreetly attend to the faithful who approach them.'
