The Generation that Follows after the Unheeded Sentinels

Rorate Caeli has a thoughtful and interesting guest post on the entrenchment of Modernism within the Church's hierarchy in the last fifty years.  After discussing the period of confusion of which we often hear, in the 1960s-- when the warnings of the sentinels of the faith were truly unheeded-- it discusses the trajectory of power and injustice of the Modernists over the more recent decades.

This is funny because every complaint in Fr. Giovanni's rambling rant can and has been made by the very "modernists" he's railing against. Modernists have been kicked aside by bishops; modernists have had their Masses replaced with Latin reenactments; modernists have [fill in the blanks for all the rest]. Modernists are the ones being oppressed and I think it's laughable whenever a neo-con tries to claim otherwise.

I do not think that word means what you think it means.

"modernists have had their Masses replaced with Latin reenactments"

Really? Where has that been happening, Long Pants? I'd truly like to know. It must be a closely-guarded secret, because otherwise by now, howls of protest from the happy-clappy "We Are Church" Human Be-In reenactors would be reverberating from sea to shining sea.

Seriously, Long Pants -- where has that been happening?

I will agree with Long Pants to this extent;

the new translation of the English Novus ordo is discomfiting the man in the pews in the same way that the changes discomfited the man of the pews in the 60s. It's the exact same type of oppression.

Would,that that were true!

SOONER
OR
LATER

(apologies to Johnny Cash)

You can run on
For a long time
Run on for a
Long time
Run on for a long time
Sooner or later
God’ll cut
‘em down
Sooner or later
God’ll cut
‘em down

These rotten wicked
Heinous men
Found foul and guilty
Again and again
All are depraved
Like nuns on the bus
Approve their boils
Then suck their pus

Defilement diseased
Septicity
Carbuncled-consented
Catholicity
The man in the dome
Dialogues to delay
Optimistic his fruits of decay
We’ll obey

Sent a Prelate
Dressed in white
To warn that the dark
Will be brought to the light
His cassocked clergy
Teaching Faith truthfully
But scourged like the
Man from Galilee

You can run on
For a long time
Run on for a
Long time
Run on for a long time
Sooner or later
God’ll cut
You down
Sooner or later
God’ll cut
You down
