Bump. Patent has linked you with "fringe groups" in a post. Not sure what is going on here or which orthodoxy group trumps which in this game.

LOL! My own bishop has linked me with fringe groups. He might be right. I hang out with faithful orthodox Catholics. Very frings here, very countercultural.

I attended a big dinner here several years ago, at which my bishop and many priests were present.

The guest speaker, a crusty old Catholic priest from upstate New York, said we were living in hard times.

"Keep one eye on your bishop, and one eye on your Pope. If your bishop goes against your Pope, close that eye!"

The crowd LOVED it. My bishop didn't.

Of course, "close that eye" goes as well for the schismatics, the libs, the prots, the pop cons, the homosexual lobby, the feminists, etc.

Notice Mother Angelica is wearing an eye patch? Wonder if that one is for the entire NCCB?!?

I don't know enough about the controversies which divide orthodox traditionalists from their schismatic rivals to offer any sort of educated opinion, although I see the relevance now. I'll just guess that if Fulton Sheen or Cardinal Mindzenty were alive liberals would call them by some sorts of names.

My curiosity was piqued by the topic. Having seen the text of the Third Secret in the past, the descriptions of the dead bodies of Christians seemed timely and strangely relevant to the unfolding events. Whether this is plausible in the theology of prophecy, I'll leave to the experts. If there are any.
