On My Refrigerator: Handy Dandy Guide to the New Religion of Vatican II
I was cleaning out a kitchen drawer on Tuesday and discovered this long-lost treasure that I had clipped from one of Fr. Zendejas' "blue papers" several years ago, before he left the SSPX and became a Resistance priest. I had thought of it many times and wanted to review it but could not remember where I had stashed it.
My heart thrilled with its re-discovery! "Look what I found!" I crowed to Emma. She immediately whipped out her phone and took a picture for safekeeping. She knows too well that just because I find something doesn't mean that I won't lose it again.
I began seriously looking over the list last night and started typing it up in chronological order, so I could see the process better. That's when I realized that a really important change was not even on the list, that being the new rite for Episcopal Consecration, which was instituted in 1968 at the same time as the new rite for Priestly Ordination.
As for the last item, I'm not sure what Fr. Zendejas was trying to say about the New Evangelization of 2013, as John Paul II and Benedict XVI had touted it during their reigns. I'm guessing he was trying to communicate something about Bergoglio actually implementing the things that JPII and BXVI only dreamed of. But that is only a guess.
It's quite heartbreaking to ponder the individual items on this list, especially when you know that most Conciliar Catholics have no idea that their religion is not the same one as practiced by Catholics before Vatican II. Maybe this list can rectify that. It's a great outline for starting an investigation into what happened to the Church. I recommend the sedevacantist site, Novus Ordo Watch, as a solid resource. But by all means, read far and wide. To get you started, here's a link to NOW's extensively documented post on the new rite of episcopal consecration.
