Vortex – Pope Benedict Nails It

There was an interesting Vortex today, on the Pope Emeritus Benedict’s comments at the funeral for Cardinal Joachim Meisner (a letter he wrote that was read aloud by Archbishop Georg Ganswein).  Among other strong words which he wrote, Benedict stated “[H]e (Meisner) learned to let go and to live out of a deep conviction that the Lord does not abandon His Church, even if the boat has taken on so much water as to be on the verge of capsizing.”

It seems that in these days the Church is very much in troubled waters.  But we, Catholics, have the Lord Jesus in our midst, in the Holy Eucharist, in the presence of the Holy Mass.  The mystery of the Eucharist is so clearly shown in the Traditional Latin Mass.  And many in the Church still have the courage to preach the fullness of Her teachings.  God bless those shepherds with the courage to speak truth, especially in a world that prefers to call good evil, and evil good.

I do very much miss Pope Benedict XVI.  During my lifetime (I am in my mid-forties), he was the best pope the Church has had.
