Archbishop Viganò: Is Vatican II “Untouchable”?
(09-29-2020, 11:41 AM)SeekerofChrist Wrote: The word "change" is not univocal.  There are several possible meanings for it and some are compatible with Catholic teaching on doctrine, liturgy, etc.  What needs to be addressed is whether a change is accidental or substantial.  An accidental change is a change in appearance only, not the substance (which would be substantial change).  Accidental changes are allowed to the Mass.  An example would be the changes made between Pius V and John XXIII.  You might call those "variations" but they constitute accidental changes.  Others might be possible, for example, to allow the Scripture readings in the vernacular.  That would be a change (from Latin to a native tongue) yet no substantial change has occurred.
Yes. Well said.
