Two and a half years after the name "Josephum" came booming down from the balcony of St Peter's, making liberal Catholics weep with rage, Pope Benedict XVI is revealing his programme of reform. And it is breathtakingly ambitious.
The 80-year-old Pontiff is planning a purification of the Roman liturgy in which decades of trendy innovations will be swept away. This recovery of the sacred is intended to draw Catholics closer to the Orthodox and ultimately to heal the 1,000 year Great Schism. But it is also designed to attract vast numbers of conservative Anglicans, who will be offered the protection of the Holy Father if they covert en masse.
The liberal cardinals don't like the sound of it at all....
there is a big difference between the papish mass and the LORDS SACRAFICE,The body of the mass can(wafer god) CORRUPT,The body of our LORD CAN'T So easy putting the papish mass to shame. btw Lance,have you found out who those verses are speaking about? U most not be able to find any lies to back u up about mary being the "mother"of God
have more in common with each other than they do Christians, I can't get very worked up about other false denominations such as Anglicans and the Eastern Orthodox group. Eastern Orthodox will only go so far in their love in with the Roman Church one has to remember the reasons for the Great Schism, is the Pope going to allow priests and nuns to marry? Is he going to give up statuary? q.v.,"Venerating Statues"
The old goose-stepping Unholiness would have to first show a degree of reasonableness, not to mention Christianity before he can get people accept him as a pied piper.
