TradCatKnight: Vatican II – The Myth of the Need For Renewal
Was Vatican II instrument for Renewal or a recipe for Destruction?
Many of us are familiar with Saint Bonaventure's account of Saint Francis in the church of San Damiano. Saint Francis was praying before the crucifix in the decrepit old church when a voice said to him, "Francis, rebuild my house for, as you see, it is falling into ruins:" He looked around and saw that San Damiano was in ruins and set about repairing it, selling his worldly possessions so he could buy stones to rebuild the church. It was only gradually that Saint Francis realized his mission was not to restore a building with bricks and mortar but to renovate the Mystical Body of Christ.
