Catholic words and phrases we should dump this year

 

‘Jean chose the Catechism over “sharing her story” with the rest of the Wednesday night R.C.I.A class…’

Fr. Gerald Mendoza, OP, over at In Spiritu Et Veritate (In Spirit and Truth) has a great post on words and phrases we could all live without hearing this year… A couple of my favorites:

1. “Spirit of Vatican II”: The only spirit of Vatican II was presumably the Holy Spirit that led to the documents of Vatican II. Can we please rely on them a bit more in the coming year rather than in the amorphous “spirit of Vatican II,” which means anything to anyone who invokes it as mere opinion?

2. “Representative Church”: As used for example, by the American Catholic Council, which purports to found a New Catholic Church in America. Loosely extrapolating, what might be interpreted as a democratic Church with “one person, one vote.” We can lizard-gaze in to that prospect all we want but it has never been and never shall be.

Go here for the rest of the post (and add your own…).

  1. ‘Your being judgemental” when are you are doing is following Our Lord’s commandment to “admonish the sinner” by quoting true Scripture.
