Even scandalous canonisations have been willed by our Lord. However, being the realpolitik person that I am, I cannot help but think that these modernist developments have resulted from the inherent flaw of centralisation within the Latin Church, as exemplified by the post-Conciliar revolution. I frequently find myself believing in the superiority of Orthodox ecclesiology precisely because of its de-centralised structure. Other factors contribute to this „Byzantofilia", yet this doubt about the necessity of Roman supremacy always provides a seemingly rational and objective pull toward the East. I hope that these comments are not taken with offence, as I know that many on this forum would strongly object to such questions.


I will also say a lot of the hysteria over the potential loosening of the practices for remarried Catholics is most likely unfounded. The Orthodox Churches have had essentially the same practice Cardinal Kasper seems to be pushing since well before the Schism and it hasn't led to female priests or gay marriage or sanctioned abortion. I mean I can understand where the fear comes from because you look at western churches such as the Anglican Church and assume if you make any adjustments in pastoral approach that's the road you are going to go down. That isn't necessarily so.

The fear is not of a slippery-slope, but rather the fear of disobeying the Lord and os sacrilegy.



That may be your fear but I've read the slippery slope argument countless times since these discussions began. I will say I didn't think any drastic changes were going to happen but after reading some of the things Pope Francis has said over the past few days I've completely changed my mind. Hopefully the bishops will listen to him. Of course that's one of the perks of being Supreme Pontiff, you can do whatever you want and nobody can stop you.  8-)

I'm sorry, I should have said the main fears are those. Of course I think practically it would be a disaster.



That just simply hasn't been our experience. Of course I can appreciate why you might feel that way.
