So, you think Pope Francis is a good guy. Did you know he did the following? “Following on the ‘celebration’ of the Protestant Reformation by Pope Francis last October in his visit to Sweden [October 31, 2016], the Vatican postage stamp honoring Martin Luther, and the statement from the Vatican that Luther was a ‘witness to the Gospel,’ Cardinal Kurt Koch, President of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, has added something even more unsettling.
“The cardinal, in an interview published in the Osservatore Romano, the official newspaper of the Vatican, stated that doctrinal condemnations expressed by the Council of Trent against the Protestants ‘have no more value today.’
“Thus we have a Cardinal of the Roman Catholic Church publicly stating that a dogmatic Ecumenical Council of the Church no longer has value—and this statement is published in the official Vatican newspaper.”
The Lutheran Lectionary is basically the same as the Novus Ordo Lectionary. The Lectionary is the book on the altar at Mass. Surprise!
This is old news, but it slipped by me, and I bet most Catholics missed it, too. When one is working many hours every week, there is little time for news.
