Major Schism in U.S. Catholic Church Underway

Yes, but in a section which is emphasizing the radical incorporation of the laity into the ministerial branch of the Church and calling the lines between clerics and laity "arbitrary" do you really think that this is what they're talking about?

No I don't. Some things I blame directly on the council, for instance, the vapid, mundane, dumbed down Mass they gave us. Other things I blame on that elusive Spirit of V.II. This is one of the latter. You see, if Father Jim & members of his laity.......John & Joe are good PALS, they can all be on the golf course on Sat., when Father Jim should be praying for his own personal holiness, visiting the sick HIMSELF, hearing CONFESSIONS, etc. etc..

This may be hard to believe, but before Vatican II people used to make "visits" to Church. (For some reason, it was safe to leave the Church unlocked during the daylight hours.) I can't tell you how many times I dropped into a church to pray the rosary, or just say hello to God & found one of the parish priest deep in prayer.
