|Saint John's Abbey, Heresy in Stone|
Alas, the Remnant doesn't see the connection between the hideous architecture of the campus, the evil of her monks, Michel, Vatican II and the aftermath. It's not a controversial statement to say that Father Virgil Michel was one of the forerunners of Vatican II.
We could go so far as to say that he even laid out the praxis in so far as he put his erroneous liturgical notions ad experimentum, using the local laity of Sterns County and the environs as guinea pigs.
Eponymous Flower doesn't normally link to Diocesan newspapers, particularly ones of poor quality like the Catholic Spirit, but the following article really does accurately describe many of the actors which prepared the Archdiocese and indeed, the United States, for Vatican II. Some of the actors in the article are more guilty than others, some have misgivings, others ascribe to Vatican II things it did not call for or address, but they were all in one way or another, advocates, whether they lived to see the results or not, of a disastrous situation for the Church and the world.
