I read the letter and found it to be a devastating critique of the ecuminical vision of JPII. The letter provided a stark contrast between JPII's views and the perennial teaching of the Catholic Church backed up by numerous references to prior Church teaching.

Also encouraging was the attack on Cardinal Kasper. Hopefully, those cardinals who consider Kasper a candidate to be the next pope will wake up after reading this letter.

I do not agree with the interfaithism of the Catholic church. I do believe that Pope John Paul II muddies the water even for those who hold to historical Catholic doctrine and that the SSPXers and Trad Catholics of the world even though I do not believe in Catholic doctrine have a good point! When one figures out the Vatican believes that all religions should join together for peace (read Zenit weekly youll see this)or that the "Seeds of the Word" exsist even in false pagan religions it can be a bit revealing and disappointing especially if you believe Christ is the ONLY way.

In what way has the Pope breached any irreformable teaching of dogmatic definitions of Popes or Ecumenical Councils or of the ordinary and universal magisterium of the Church, as opposed to reformable teachings of the ordinary magisterium or disciplinary matters? Only the former are Apostolic Tradition. The latter are at most tradition with a small "t".

There may have been all of TEN Cardinals who viewed Kasper as "papabile." He's not now, never was, and never will be "papabile."

Do you have a link where we can read it on line?
