ROME, March 12, 2013, www.RemnantNewspaper.com – The waiting time is drawing to a close. This afternoon, the cardinals will have their first ballot. Starting last Wednesday, the cardinals agreed that their discussions will be continued under greater secrecy. This means that we are left to examine the evidence and facts we already know to piece together, if not the outcome of the conclave, then at least the issues looming in the minds of the cardinal electors.
On that day it was announced that the press conferences organised at the Pontifical North American College, up the hill from St. Peter’s, where US cardinals were giving politely evasive and non-specific non-information to US and British journalists, had been cancelled. It came out that the reason was that some Italian cardinals, whose interpretation of the oath of secrecy was a little more, shall we say, flexible, were giving Italian journalists what amounted to transcripts of the meetings.
And there we have in a nutshell a hint as to how the Vatican administration works at the highest levels: chaotically, with no very strong connections to reality.
Father uses St. Paul’s Epistle to the Galatians and the story of Jesus and the ten lepers as foundation for his discussion of the Old Law and a pharisaical approach to the Gentiles. Is St. Paul’s anger at the Judaizers the same as the anger many critics today express against Traditional Catholics-- those they accuse of being the new Judaizers for insisting on restoring the Old Latin Mass, the old moral theology and the rest of the traditions of the Church? What do you think?
