Coccopalmerio shark-baiter

I guess Cocco wrote a book. Sigh. He didn’t even show up for the presentation of his personal opinion. It means less than nothing. No one cares.

Should he be taught some lessons in ecclesiastical Juris Prudence especially with canons dealing with natural law, not to mention that which is in Sacred Scripture, Sacred Tradition, and the great interventions of the Sacred Magisterium of the Church. Yes.

Is the best way to go about this to throw this out as shark-bait? No. That helps no one but hurts very many gravely. We can note it, be aware of it, for after all we have to live and deal with situations which may well be nuanced by what he says even as a personal opinion. But shark-baiting isn’t necessary.

Here’s the deal: Jesus has risen from the dead. I, for one, am happy with that, because, you know, I’m the one who threw Jesus to the sharks with my sin, and He forgave me. What about you? There is no reason to lose the peace of Christ. You can agonize. Jesus sweat blood. But don’t lose your peace.

Might I write something about irony regarding a personal experience concerning all these matters and the Cardinal heading up the Pontifical Council for the Authentic Interpretation of Legislative Texts, an experience so ironic it could just about stop your heart? Yes, I could, and I just might. Yes, I think I will.

    Do all these folks seriously think the next generation of hierarchs will keep going along with the rejection of the direct teaching of Jesus? Their opinion about this doesn’t even make sense. It looks like even they are getting nervous that the Pope’s attempt to turn up the heat gradually on the lobster-boiling water (“time is greater than space”) hasn’t prevented the lobsters firmly objecting.

    Truth is greater than time or space.

    Perfect!
