Voris Joins the Chorus -- Church Militant Criticizes Pope
Edit: a disgrace to the Chair of Peter? Wow! Has there been an apology to John Vennari, Catholic Family News, the Angelus, Rorate Caeli or others who've been legitimately critical of this pope in the past?
To our knowledge they didn't apologize about the SSPX, either.
We have to say, going after these groups doesn't seem to have hurt them much.
[ChurchMilitant] At exactly 4:49 p.m. Rome time, February 12,1931, a remarkable thing happened. For the first time in history, a mass audience actually was able to audibly hear with their own ears the actual voice of the Holy Father — less than a hundred years ago in a 2000-year-old Church. The very first radio broadcast, invented by Italian scientist Guglielmo Marconi, went out over the airwaves with the voice coming from the mouth of Pope Pius XI. Things were about to change forever.
Fifty years earlier in 1870, the Church had officially announced the dogma of papal infallibility at Vatican I. The dogmatic announcement was a source of some concern — and not just by enemies of the Church.
Before he died 20 years after Vatican I and 30 years before that first radio broadcast, Bd. John Henry Newman looked down the road and worried that regular Catholics would misconstrue the dogmatic pronouncement and begin to assign, in their minds, an authority to the Pope that he does not possess: common infallibility.
