It has been more than a decade since I first began “harvesting the fruit of Vatican II,” but with darkness now descending at an unprecedented pace, it’s time to move on.
It’s been one helluva ride.
Harvesting the fruit of Vatican II: The name of the apostolate said it all…
Having once placed my trust in the men who speak from the highest places in Rome, I spent many years scouring the conciliar text in search of good food. It was there for the taking, they said, and naively, I believed them.
In my search for truth, by the grace of God, I came to discover that I, and indeed entire generations, had been grossly misled. My eyes were opened to the bitter reality that I had allowed the Council’s pious sounding phrases to mask the modernist manure that was masterfully scattered within by men of little faith.
Like a little leaven, I finally realized, their poisonous prose had spoiled the entire lump; rendering the task of harvesting, well… fruitless.
Over the last several years, in spite of bearing a name that is but a vestige of a more innocent time, this blog has become a noteworthy base camp for the so-called “traditionalist” – aka Catholic; a place to aid one another in putting the lie to the “New Evangelization” and indeed every novelty that would undermine the true faith.
Together we’ve been sifting through the post-conciliar wreckage; condemning errors, fending off attacks, and standing shoulder-to-shoulder in defense of the Sovereign Rights of Christ the King.
Indeed, my friends, the season of “harvesting the fruit of Vatican II” is passing and it’s time to move on – not in retreat, however – but onto something better.
A few months ago I sounded the alarm; the persecution had hit home. I let you know that this effort couldn’t endure without your ongoing support. Your response was a good beginning; encouraging enough to suggest that it may just be possible to continue.
The need still exists. Even more so. Since then, however, I’ve put a priority on discerning the Lord’s will in the matter. As I’ve told any number of friends, if He wants me to put this blog on the shelf and to go sell shoes door-to-door, I’ll do it.
As it is, I’m here for the long haul. I’m all in, and then some.
So stayed tuned. Changes are coming. Later today, you’ll get your first glimpse. Depending upon when you’re reading this, you may have already gotten it.
In any case, I will follow up with more details on what lies ahead tomorrow. In the meantime – to my American friends, a Blessed Thanksgiving to you and yours. To the others, please know that I’m thankful for each and every one of you wherever you may be.
Vivat Christus Rex!
