The Hermeneutics of Bergoglio: Dead Traditions

We should abandon the old forms which were never that great in the first place.

Edit: surely he means dead Traditions like Marty Haugen and David Haas?  Maybe it’s time to start reading Benedict XVI through Bergoglio? 

Perhaps he intends to discredit the Bologna School by promoting a devotee of Sodom and Gomorrah, Cupich, to advocate for it in Rome!! Genius!!

[Catholic Snooze Network] Pope Francis on Wednesday criticized people who “call themselves guardians of traditions, but of dead traditions,” saying that failing to move forward is dangerous for the Church today.

Speaking to the organizers of a conference on education on June 1, the pope said that it was vital to make progress by “drawing from the roots.”

He said that “there is the fashion — in every age, but in this age in the Church’s life I consider it dangerous — that instead of drawing from the roots in order to move forward — meaning fine traditions — we ‘step back,’ not going up or down, but backward.”

“This ‘back-stepping’ makes us a sect; it makes you ‘closed’ and cuts off your horizons. Those people call themselves guardians of traditions, but of dead traditions.”

It might have more sense were he to have used the word murdered rather than dead.
