Is it my fault that we are living in times that demand vigilance and unrelenting discernment?
“Parts of the chapter on Marriage have been re-written substantially.” - The Sacrament has changed that much, huh?
“The Scripture quotations and references are changed from the Douay-Rheims translation to the Revised Standard Version.” - I’ll stick to the DR.
“Deleted from the text are a few passages judged too technical or too subtle…” - Nothing patronizing about simplifying and deleting text that was originally written for high school students… different era, I guess.
I could cite a few other excerpts that I find to be of some personal concern, but that will probably get us about as far as your dramatic and condescending comment. I love Baronius… I’m actually waiting on a few items as we speak, but they are not an infallible organization. As for this specific work… I am no scholar. For all I know, Fr. Peter Joseph could have done an outstanding job. However, I don’t know… so I’d either prefer a sure thing or insight from someone that does.
Yes, the FSSP association is noteworthy. Unfortunately, I find it difficult to find much information on Fr. P.J. himself.
