Today’s Catholic Church is whatever “they” say it is … until “they” say it’s something else!

…does the Church consider the Second Vatican Council an ecumenical council? What is the authority attributed to it?

The late Melkite Patriarch Maximos V did not, as seen in 30 Days (no. 2, 1997). Maximos declared it “unthinkable” to treat the second millennium “Councils of the Western Church” (!) as a condition for unity with the Orthodox, “including papal infallibility”(!!). And: “…it must be recognized that all the Councils after the first millennium, including Vatican I and II, cannot be described as ecumenical… . The decisions taken in those assizes cannot regard the Eastern Churches which did not participate in them.”

Editor’s note: A funny thing happend on the way to Vatican II: A handful of “token” Protestants showed up, but the bulk of the Eastern Orthodox Churches were either never invited or failed to attend. Hence, the “ecumenical” 2nd Vatican Council turned out to be a lot less all-inclusive and all-embracing than many/some/a select few might want you to believe.

Of course, the liberals/modernists who succesfully hijacked the council are still firmly in charge, and if they say the council was ecumenical, then “ecumenical” it must be!

Having succesfully dispensed with truth, it was then a simple matter to go on to redefine and reinterpret the entire Church – making the Mass, Canon Law, the Sacred Deposit of Faith, the Bible, the Sacraments and even the sanctuaries whatever “they” say they are … sort of like the “New Pentecost” of which the last several popes have spoken – but with man, rather than the Holy Spirit, providing the bulk of the inspiration.

Wouldn’t that be one hell of a turn for a Catholic “ecumenical” council to take?

Is the pope Catholic?
