Even Fidel Castro Knows the Liturgical Changes Were Disastrous

Are Vatican II and the Novus Ordo responsible for Fidel Castro's loss of faith?

This link is from Catholic Free Press, scroll down to the second article.  It contains this excerpt about the Pope's recent meeting with Castro:

The pope said Castro, who was raised a Catholic, asked about the reasons for the changes in the liturgy after the Second Vatican Council, about the role of the pope and about the pope’s thinking about the larger philosophical questions weighing on the minds of people today.

The meeting lasted about 30 minutes, Father Lombardi said, and the questions were an indication that “now his life is one dedicated to reflection and writing.”

On the liturgy, the pope said Castro told him, “It’s not the Mass I knew in my youth.”

The more philosophical topics included Castro’s curiosity about how the church is handling the ethical challenges posed by scientific and technological developments and the relationship between faith and reason, as well as the pope’s concerns about a growing number of people who don’t believe in God or act as if God does not exist, Father Lombardi said.

“In the end, Commandante Fidel asked the pope to send him a few books” dealing with the questions he had, the spokesman said.

You know it's bad when even Castro pans it.

Castro, the SSPX, Saint Louis Catholic... talk about convergence. 


Thanks to reader Ken for this little gem.

Even a stopped clock is right twice a day!

Of course, an alternative explanation is that:

Timman = Fidel Castro

You laugh. Have you ever seen them together? Well, have you?

The late and legendary rocker Jerry Garcia was lost to the Catholicism of his childhood, drawn away by other things, no doubt, but he fondly remembered “the wonderful Latin Mass with its resonant sonorities and mysterious ritual movements.”
