Benedict XVI and the Great Liberation

An article by (former Long Islander) Thomas E. Woods Jr. on the motu proprio. I want to quote much of it but have limited myself to this snip:

"To make a long story short, in 1969–70 a new liturgy was introduced in the Roman Rite of the Catholic Church. Far from the minor changes that most bishops had thought they were approving at the Second Vatican Council, the Missal of Pope Paul VI was a sweeping and radical overhaul of the traditional Mass"


"For several decades, not only the Catholic left but also the "orthodox" Catholic right condemned supporters of the 1962 Missal as disobedient, wicked, schismatic – you name it – because they believed that what was beautiful and venerable yesterday could not cease to be beautiful and venerable today. "

Well worth reading the whole thing. I found this via Uncovering Orthodoxy, the latest blog of Steve Skojec, whose mother-in-law was recently murdered. Please pray for Steve and his family.
Two teenagers were arrested and charged Friday with conspiring to buy weapons for a plot to commit a Columbine-style assault on Connetquot High School, police said.

Whether it is the sick muslim culture, or the sick American culture that creates these situations, it is clear that there is a lot of sickness in cultures today.
