Isn't Ratzinger rather hostile to doubt and secularity?

Yes, and rightly so.

Ratzinger speaks the truth. Many do not want blunt talk, they prefer the effete way of nuancing every single aspect of life.

Kaspar is no Ratzinger.

Ho ho. I saw a picture of Cardinal Kaspar posted (by a fairly liberal priest) in a semi-public place here being touted as a "candidate for Pope."

This is of course, nonsense. Cardinal K is of course eligible, but will never be elected. Too liberal.

That is probably the understatement of the entire CCF forum.


And if both men read it, they would say together in unison "Ain't that the truth!"

Kaspar doesn't believe in historical apostolic succession by imposition of hands. How about asking him on the sacramentality of priesthood, consecration of the Eucharist and transsubstantation?

Lack of apostolic succession in the historical sense implies that everyone can ordain validly without being ordained first or that holy orders can be assumed without ordination, which means that practically everyone can consecrate. Consequently, holy orders give no new power about the Eucharist. Ergo, consecration of the Eucharist runs off the universal priesthood of the faithful, even if trassubstantation may indeed happen. This is Anglicanism.

Seems to me that "everyone" is always bemoaning the lack of a good fire-and-brimstone and call-a-sin-a-sin preacher. So what happens when good Cardinal Ratzinger, the pit bull, comes along? People like Cardinal Kaspar and his supporters whine and throw things. Figures.

How do people like this become Cardinals? Why not keep them out altogether?

Throw in Chaput, O'Malley, and Meyer and you'd have a dynamic foursome -- Thankfully God has always provided us with good, solid shepherds, even though as my friend says "It's hard to fly like an eagle when you are surrounded by turkeys". -- when I heard several of the seminarians from the North American College speak this week, calling themselves JPII priests, I was very impressed.

As I contrasted what they said versus the kookiness of Kung, the babbling of McBrien, and the strange remarks by Reese, I said thanks be to God, this too shall pass.

JPIIs work aided the Holy Spirit immensly in bringing orthodoxy to the young. The up-and-coming generation of priests has been motivated by the brilliant example of JPII, and they have seen that holding firm to one's convictions doesn't just keep the Church holy, but it also gets 2 billion people watching your funeral and garners praise even from opposing faiths. I think we will be in very good hands in the years to come.

If anybody's earned it, Bruskewitz has. He's stood firm all by himself on many tough issues.

His Eminence Walter Cardinal Kaspar is probably eating his liver out just now. We must pray for him, and for Pope Benedict, who has a huge job in front of him.
