Behold! Three essential books for learning Catholic dogma.
O sure, fine for a fundamentalist ‘wanting to close oneself within the written word…the certitude of what we know,” despite that “it is the temptation of the zealous…of the solicitous & of the so-called traditionalists & also of the intellectuals.”
Also fine for Catholics I should think, but then…
Hm, good selections. Before I clicked the link, I guessed “Bible, Roman Missal, Catechism.”
I also was unreasonably tempted to list: “The Queen, the Vatican, the Gettys, the Rothschilds, and Colonel Sanders … with his wee beady eyes”
Good. But it is a pity in the Western Church that one must go to outside sources for this rather than in the liturgy and prayers of the Church. Puts one in a vacuum, I would think. I wonder if the constant turmoil and wars over liturgy are somehow connected to the weak doctrinal content of Western liturgy.
No one has ever asnwered this question for me: other than the Immaculate Conception, and the Assumption of Mary, what other Ex Cathedral proclamations have there been? How many are there and what are they?
Deafening silence. Again.
But it’s so hard to figure out what is heresy! Can’t you DEFINE HERESY?
