The Departure

The Missionaries of Christ the Redeemer.

I had not heard of the Institute Id of Christ the Redeemer and its charism before until last night at Theology on Tap. I'll have to look into it and its founder, Fernando Rielo, more and see how they fits in with the history of Latin spirituality. (Or Spanish spirituality and theology, for that matter -- quite a few appeals to San Juan de la Cruz last night.) What work are they doing in Spain?

Galatians 1:8

"But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed."

And this includes bishop or patriarch, especially now with the Gospel being replaced by the heresy of liberalism. Pick one: nature and natural law or liberalism and some version of blank slate. You can't have both.

Putting the Local Church in Charge of Liturgical Translations

The wrong time for decentralization and liturgical reform -- especially if no Latin bishop is prepared to excommunicate other bishops for heterodoxy or to bring them to trial for malfeasance. Otherwise I would be sympathetic to having translations of the liturgy into hierartic versions of the local language, instead of the national language, which lends credence to the claims of the modern nation-state and modern nationalism. If bishops are do not have a localist mindset or have not been inculturated into the local culture and language, why bother?
