Vatican II and Catholic Family News

The discussion between Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò and Bishop Athanasius Schneider regarding Vatican II, which we commented on previously, has led to a wider debate within the universal Church.  Italian Vatican correspondent Sandro Magister has attempted to portray Archbishop Viganò’s criticism of the Council as the beginning of the decline of his influence, but at the same time, more than fifty prominent priests and lay scholars have publicly thanked both Archbishop Viganò and Bishop Schneider for raising questions about the Council that need to be addressed.

While Sandro Magister has cited Cardinal Brandmüller as representing a response to the position of Archbishop Viganò and Bishop Schneider, His Eminence in his defense of the Council has acknowledged one of the Council’s most notable weaknesses – its failure to condemn Communism.  We single out this fact because of two articles that appeared in the July 2020 issue of Catholic Family News. Read More.

Archbishop Viganò and Bishop

Schneider Discuss the Council

Both of these prelates, Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò and Bishop Athanasius Schneider, agree on the essential nature of the doctrinal and moral crisis within the Church in our time. But nuances of differences appeared when Archbishop Viganò, after quoting important observations made by Bishop Schneider, disagreed with some of his historical comparisons. Read More.

Catholic Solidarity and American Civil Strife

When Archbishop Viganò recently wrote to President Donald Trump, providing guidance and support, some might have seen his letter as a case of a bishop’s political involvement.  However, in the first chapter of Catholicism, Liberalism and Socialism, Juan Donoso Cortés explained how “every great political question always involves a great theological question.”  The racial strife spreading throughout the United States after a white police officer took the life of a black man in Minneapolis illustrates the thesis of Donoso’s book. Read More.
