Tracey Rowland: The Anglican Patrimony
Posted by Fr. Andrew Bartus on 22 June 2011
Labels: Beauty, History, Liturgy, Music, Pope Benedict XVI
Professor Tracey Rowland is Dean of the John Paul II Institute for Marriage and Family in Melbourne, Australia, and gave this address at a conference for those exploring joining a Personal Ordinariate in Australia. She is also the author of the popular and excellent Ratzinger’s Faith, published by Oxford University Press.

Pope Benedict XVI has consistently held that the ecumenical process is one of acquiring unity in diversity, not structural reintegration.  For example, in his Ecumenical Address in Cologne in 2005 he remarked that ‘Ecumenism does not mean what could be called an ecumenism of the return: that is, to deny and to reject one’s own faith history – it does not mean uniformity in all expressions of theology and spirituality, in liturgical forms and in discipline’.
In this address he also spoke of dialogue as an exchange of gifts in which the Churches and Ecclesial Communities can make available their own riches.  This theme was reiterated in a parallel address in the Crypt of St. Mary’s Cathedral in Sydney, at the second World Youth Day of his pontificate.  He noted that whereas an idea aims at truth, a gift expresses love.  Both, he concluded, were essential elements of dialogue.

I take special issue with this, and I think it lies at the root of VII's errors.  "Ideas" don't "aim" at anything, they are either true or false, Godly or chaff.  Furthermore, the idea that a "gift is an essential element of dialogue" ignores the overarching command of scripture and tradition to speak the truth, and in fact, makes totally ambiguous the already vague but arguably conservative encyclical of his holiness, Caritas in Veritate.  It does this by insinuating, while not outright stating, that the "gift" is liturgical compromise, or compromise on something else...on what?  The conclusion can be drawn that if "giving love" is as important an element of dialogue as Truth, that sometimes truth has to be altered, softened, or straight out unexpressed as a "gift" to our "seperated brethren". 

Nothing could make the dorks in the Bishopric who think that Christianity needs a "unity" of refusal to disagree on anything happier.
The Catholic Church is distinguished by a unity of faith, not a unity of false charity whereby we all "get along to go along".

Yes, the hermeneutic of continuity makes all the contradictions disappear because . . . well . . . it says it does.
