I recently made another attempt to give further mileage to S John Henry Newman's thesis about the current Suspense in the function of the Petrine Magisterium.
Since the Stato, the bailiwick of Cardinal Parolin, has now constructively declared that the mandates of Vatican II are inoperative, perhaps a similar analysis can be thought to apply to the whole conciliar construct. This must be at least an opinio probabilis.
And there must be a practical ... are we not all practical men? ... solution to the problems at S Peter's. I quote from Bishop Tissier's fine Biography of Marcel Lefebvre:
" ... on February 27, 1977, a crowd of Catholics summoned to the Maubert Mutualite Lecture Hall by Fr Coache and Mgr Ducaud-Bourget, processed into the nearby church of S Nicolas du Chardonnet, sang a traditional Solemn High Mass ... and stayed there."
For all I know ... I very rarely get to France ... they may even still be holding out there!!!
Is there not something fine, manly and sinewy about this resolute action? Is this not the truly orthodox way to cut through the Gordian Knot on the Vatican Hill?
Vincula Sancti Petri iterum rumpenda!
