Father Schmidberger Addresses Assisi Meetings and Relativism
Fatal Result. The scandalous Assisi event of Pope John Paul II has been understood by Catholics in a way: "For each to make sanctify it according to his own fashion".
(kreuz.net) Vocations must be formed holistically.
Only in this way can the faithful receive a holistic vision of the Christian life, where private, familial, professional and social life be put together "as from one mold".
Father Franz Schmidberger(65) - mathematician and Superior of the German District of the Society of Saint Pius X said to newsportal 'kathnews.de' on 7. December.
The practical disappearance of vocations in the Conciliar Church, he continued, has led to the situation that there is hardly any more possibility "for a joyful, faithful youth, for Christian families for parishes erected with a missionary spirit or for the return to working to bring souls to penitence."
The Beginning: A heretical definition of the Mass
Father continued to speak about the Society's critique of the New Mass.
He cited the first edition of the Mass book in 1969:
"The Lord's Supper or the Mass is the holy gathering together or the meeting of thep people of God, who come together under the presiding of a priest, to celebrate the memorial of the Lord. For that reason the physical meeting of the Holy Church in an brilliant mass makes valid Christ's promise. >>Wherever two or three are gathered in my name, there will I be among them.<< (Mt 18, 20)"
The clergyman pointed out that in this representation "all elements" of the Sacrifice of the Mass fall short, which are set out in the 22nd Session of the Council of Trent in 1562.
The Liturgy on the Drawing Board Remains
Father Schmidberger admitted that this heretical Mass definition was "somewhat improved" a year later.
But: "The defined thing itself, namely the Liturgy elaborated on the drawing board remained the same. A one meal fellowship being presided over by a the Priest. Almost nothing was mentioned about adoring God and atoning for sins. On the other hand the SSPX insists that the Holy Mass is the unbloody renewal of the bloody Sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the Cross.
This is so that people in todays pleasure society can be brought to holiness, to the supernatural and Sanctifying Grace, to self-donation and to be led to serve.
The Old Mass Remains the Mass of all Things
The celebration of the Old Mass -- says Father Schmidberger -- has won ground "not spectacularly, but respectably" after the Motu Proprio:
"If the Bishops weren't giving their resistance to it, it would be much more broadly
The Old Mass remains the measure for every Liturgy, "which is the perfect Liturgical expression of Catholic Dogma."
Above all there must be a "overthrowing of the (un)Spirit of the Council":
"The poison must be forced out of the mystical body of the Lord."
A Great Scandal
Concerning the subject of interreligion, Father Schmidberger recalled the Assisi Meeting of 1986:
"That was a great scandal for the entire Church, an offense against the first Commandment of God and against the first article of our Creed."
Above all this had put the "spirit of relativism" in the head to a considerable degree: "For each to make sanctify it according to his own fashion, say the people".
For Father Schmidberger it is "inexplicable how such a false step could be dedicated by a silver jubilee."
The Pope has attempted to address critics of the meeting by pushing the meeting "more to a cultural appearance".
Still the central problem with that is not put to the side for Father Schmidberger.
It consists in the "exclusion of the question of reality and the darkening of the reality that Christ is the only savior of the human person and the only true Prince of Peace in this world."
