Thoughts on Vatican II and a question for you

Feeney was excommunicated because he failed to appear in Rome after several summons – a direct disobedience to legitimate Church authority. Of course, the summons was related to his strict interpretation of EENS, but that’s not why he was excommunicated per se. It is also my understanding that he was reconciled to the Church before his death. Interesting that he fought what he perceived to be liberalism in the Church even in the 1940s.

Yes things were quite liberal actually. People think false ecumenism was born at Vatican II. In fact it was quite prevalent in the 40s though it was called Inter-Faith then. Fr. Feeney was not censured for preaching Baptism of Desire and Baptism of Blood. His position of those topics developed years after his explusion from the Jesuits and "excommunication" from Rome. The priests and bishop had publically denied the dogma EENS itself saying the Church never taught such a thing.

Fr. Feeney also made many converts of the children from rich Protestant American families(including Temple Morgan, as in JP Morgan, who died just this past year as a trappist monk), who were friends of the archdiocese and complained to the bishop. He became very embarrassed and tried to silence Fr.
