Stop Me If You've Heard This One...






After 45 years, I have to say this one's wearing a bit thin.

Tell me about it.

Now, repeat after me: the emperor has clothes...the emperor has clothes...the emperor has clothes...

Are you saying that the Holy Spirit was NOT with Vatican II? Please don't become so far to the right that you meet those far in the left - outside of the Church.

THE
BEES
SACRED PURPOSE

For centuries beeswax
In the sanctuary reigned
Our sacred purpose
From the first ordained

Producing honeycombs
All that we handle --
Though our sacred purpose?
The Holy Mass candle

But at the last council
Of the great Church bee
Man turned to man
Birthed sterility

Graces for fruits
Crops and offspring
Schools churches shut --
Can’t pollinate a thing

Until man again
On His altars lets towers --
Candles of beeswax
Sacred purpose all ours!

(St. Francis De Sales ora pro nobis)

And this is the redundant comeback. Please don’t hang out in that bizarre land of the neo-con which claims to be the middle-ground.

1. The Holy Ghost does not protect against ambiguity and poorly written documents. A document can be poorly written and be protected from error.

2. Not everything written in Vatican II can be protected from error given the nature of the council. I am not saying that it does indeed contain error but theoretically it can. The council of Florence was wrong about ordinations for example.
