Full Version: Pope Benedict Promises More Discipline: Will Dissident Bishops Come to Cannosa?
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
Holy Father promises greater Church discipline. Authentic Church life requires the values of obedience and forthrightness. In his sermon on the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart last week, he promises greater discipline, the rod, to keep wolves at bay.

This falls in line with other concerns he's had more recently regarding heresy. It's going to be increasingly the case that Church leaders who do not ascent and teach the orthodox tenets of the Catholic Faith are going to find themselves out in the cold, like various Cardinals who have been finding themselves sidelined when it comes to important Curial meetings. It may go beyond that, however. Will the rebellious Austrian Clergy walk the road to Canossa?

Unlike Henry standing in the snow, I think it may come down to and oath.

Apparently this is about the  Sacred Heart homily

http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/benedi...ac_en.html

That homily is for the priest about the priestly vocation. Neither the word bishop, nor dissident nor  discipline is mentioned.
I was going to start a thread on this, I was going to call it, tough talk from Pope, or something like that.  Will tough action follow though?  M. Vorris commented on this on the vortex today.


Part of what the pope said:  "The church too must use the Shepard's rod.  The rod with which he protects the Faith against those who falsify it, against currents which lead the flock astray...   ...Nor does it have to do with love if heresy is allowed to spread and the Faith twisted and chipped away as if it were something we ourselves invented."

Alaric also started a thread about this.





I'm not heralding the end of liberalism quite yet, which Michael Vorris is doing, talk is cheap after all.  But its a good sign.

A sign which everyone can see except for glgas, apparently.
