German Bishops Jeopardize Identity Of Catholic Church

This is a point I have been making. If Rome approves the heresy of many of the German Bishops, it is the beginning of the end for the Catholic Church as a distinct body claiming to be the Church of Christ.

However, no matter how bad it gets, with heresies galore rampaging through the Church, we have Christ's promise that he will never abandon his Body, His Bride. How long, O Lord, how long?

Archbishop Chaput
Doctrinal differences among Catholics and Protestants regarding the Eucharist are “not just verbal debris from a dead past” but have a meaning, according to Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia, USA.

Talking to cruxnow.com (May 28), Chaput explains that the German proposal for Protestant Communion puts a lot at stake: the identity of the Church, the meaning of the sacraments, or the nature of the Real Presence.

Once the first step towards Protestant Communion is taken, “pressure to widen intercommunion will naturally increase, with diminishing reasons and credibility to resist it”.

Chaput adds, “What happens in Germany will not stay in Germany.”

Comments are subject to deletion if they are not germane. I have no problem with a bit of colourful language, but blasphemy or depraved profanity will not be allowed. Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a material heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
