Men in the Seminary changed around the early 60s perhaps sooner like mid 50's, until even today - if you were friendly to tradition you were ousted. Many many lost vocations.

We have come to the culmination of the heresy of modernism
What the previous popes warned about.

As a Catholic our faith is not in the pope it is in Jesus.

The Gates of hell will not prevail - so many governments have tried to "take care" of the Catholic church. Not to say that the church is perfect as it is run by men - and what seems like for some time now someof these men are those that have actively harmed children, hurt the faithful, and shamed the church.

The issue of abusing kids is not a strictly Catholic issue, the problem was those that wanted to harm kids found a welcome home in the Catholic seminaries and now those men are our bishops.

So many bad popes through history, but when it came to matters of the faith I trust the Holy Spirit to guide whomever is the leader of the worlds billions of Catholics.


Wow, thank you for that honest and intriguing response. I don't know where the Vatican goes from here as far as picking a new Pope.
