As the Church continues on its rough voyage to the promised land, we are seeing even more bold statements being made in the highest levels of the Church proclaiming a "New Vatican II Church." In times past it was a general rule for the modernist to proclaim modernist heresy under the facade that they were proclaiming nothing new. Now however, things are changing. As we know, Pope Francis has picked eight of his favorite Cardinals to advise him on Church matters who are being referred to as, "Super-Cardinals". I refer to them as the "Super-friends", much like the cartoon characters we all remember from our childhood who came to save the day from those pesky evil villains. Unfortunately these Cardinals do not appear to be friends of the Church but part of the problem. One of these "Super-friends" is Cardinal Oscar Andrés Rodríguez Maradiaga. One of the Cardinal's recent statements clearly puts him at odds with Magisterial statements made by several previous Popes as well as dogmatic proclamations of the First Vatican Council. Contrary to Vatican II which was proclaimed as a pastoral Council, Vatican I was a dogmatic Council.
There is a two part article online well worth reading if you want to understand the erroneous thinking of many of today's bishops, including those chosen by the current Pope himself to advise him. It is amazing that a Cardinal can now openly state that he is in total opposition to the dogmatic Council of Vatican I, and that Vatican II openly contradicted the previous Council. There is no ambiguity to his statement that is usually readily apparent with modernists. The Cardinal is quite clear in proclaiming that he rejects Vatican I's rejection of modernism. Why are so many faithful in the Church ignoring those in the highest positions in the Church today? It is because they are now openly denying dogmatic truths of the faith. They are now openly proclaiming that Vatican II had power to change the Church's stance on a condemned heresy. Just for the record, it cannot happen! We as faithful Catholics should openly reject the Cardinal's recent statement quoted below, and I would hope that the CDF will not let Cardinal Maradiaga keep his hat or his position while holding such heretical ideas.
The Second Vatican Council was the main event in the Church in the 20th Century. In principle, it meant an end to the hostilities between the Church and modernism, which was condemned in the First Vatican Council. On the contrary: neither the world is the realm of evil and sin –these are conclusions clearly achieved in Vatican II—nor is the Church the sole refuge of good and virtue. Modernism was, most of the time, a reaction against injustices and abuses that disparaged the dignity and the rights of the person. The Vatican II Council officially acknowledged that things had changed, and captured the need for such a change in its Documents… (Cardinal Oscar Andrés Rodríguez Maradiaga)
