“In the Mass Readings 489 for today, Saint Paul is helping the Faithful keep obedience in perspective. “to lead the Gentiles to obedienceby the power of signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God, so that from Jerusalem all the way around to Illyricum I have finished preaching the Gospel of Christ” (Romans 15:18-19). Obedience must be to God, whatever the “politically correct” risks may be.”

Some say God is about OBEDIENCE. They see God as the King of the realm and/or the Father of a family of obedient and unruly children. This God-view keeps obedience as the pinnacle of Roman Rite theology.
Vatican II theology sees God differently. Vatican II theology sees life and love differently, and so sees God differently. Two very different Catholic cultures: Roman and Vatican II. There is no stuffing one into the other without eviscerating one or the other or both.
Eastern Catholic Rites in union with Rome see God and each other differently. Eastern and Latin/Western Rites see each other differently. Is there no room for a Vatican II Rite in the Catholic Church?

Is there no room….everyone knows that when a new life comes into the already established family IT MAKES ROOM…all effort goes into nurturing the new life. When a new life is seen as a threat to the family a tragic abortion might be chosen.
Aborting the promised life of Vatican II is a sin within the Roman Catholic Family. This is what the Family Synod of Bishops failed to address in the larger catholic family. The life of the Council is on life support as those of us who hold its dreams in living memory are coming to our own end time, Will we have done enough to even leave a new testament for those who will come after us.
