From the Gospel according to Matthew 9:14-29 ( February 20, 2017)
GospelMK 9:14-29As Jesus came down from the mountain with Peter, James, John
and approached the other disciples,
they saw a large crowd around them and scribes arguing with them.
Immediately on seeing him,
the whole crowd was utterly amazed.
They ran up to him and greeted him.
He asked them, "What are you arguing about with them?"
Someone from the crowd answered him,
"Teacher, I have brought to you my son possessed by a mute spirit.
Wherever it seizes him, it throws him down;
he foams at the mouth, grinds his teeth, and becomes rigid.
I asked your disciples to drive it out, but they were unable to do so."
He said to them in reply,
"O faithless generation, how long will I be with you?
How long will I endure you? Bring him to me."
They brought the boy to him.
And when he saw him,
the spirit immediately threw the boy into convulsions.
As he fell to the ground, he began to roll around
and foam at the mouth.
Then he questioned his father,
"How long has this been happening to him?"
He replied, "Since childhood.
It has often thrown him into fire and into water to kill him.
But if you can do anything, have compassion on us and help us."
Jesus said to him,
"'If you can!' Everything is possible to one who has faith."
Then the boy's father cried out, "I do believe, help my unbelief!"
Jesus, on seeing a crowd rapidly gathering,
rebuked the unclean spirit and said to it,
"Mute and deaf spirit, I command you:
come out of him and never enter him again!"
Shouting and throwing the boy into convulsions, it came out.
He became like a corpse, which caused many to say, "He is dead!"
But Jesus took him by the hand, raised him, and he stood up.
When he entered the house, his disciples asked him in private,
"Why could we not drive the spirit out?"
He said to them, "This kind can only come out through prayer."
Noticed on Monday, the USCCB version of this Gospel left off the fasting part. http://www.catholic.org/bible/daily_reading/?select_date=2017-02-20
It is time for the traditionalists to regularize their situation.The SSPX and the St.Benedict Centers(SBC) and the sedevacantists have been interpreting Vatican Council II with Cushingism. They need to switch to Vatican Council II ( Feeneyism).They will put their old ideological opponents on the defensive.
You tell the liberals to affirm Vatican Council II ( F).
Tell them to reject Vatican Council II (C) and affirm Vatican Council II(F).
Tell them to affirm EENS( F) and also EENS(C).
Tell them to affirm baptism of desire(BOD) and being saved in invincible ignorance (I.I) with Feeneyism and reject BOD and I.I (Cushingism).Tell them you interpret BOD and I.I with Feeneyism and ask them if they have an objections.
Tell them outside the Church there is no known salvation in 2017.
So announce it. Tell them you affirm EENS and Vatican Council II Feeneyite( with no known exceptions to EENS Feeneyite in 2017) and ask the two popes and the CDF to do the same.
Tell them that rationally Vatican Council II (F) cannot contradict EENS(F) according to the magisterium of the 16th century .
With Vatican Council II (F) there is no 'development of the dogma' EENS. So Pope Benedict was wrong in March 2016 in the Avvenire interview.He was using Cushingism.
In the past the the SSPX and SBC would oppose each other by using Cushingism.Now that is history.
I use the terms Vatican Council II ( Feeneyite and Cushingite) since it is useful to clarify my thinking. However the SSPX and the SBC could use different terms.
Call it Vatican Council II ( without the irrational premise) and Vatican Council II ( with the irrational premise) if you want to. Call it Vatican Council (with the old ecclesiology) and Vatican Council II ( with the new ecclesiology).Or call it Vatican Cuncil II (F) and Vatican Council II (C) as you like.
But affirm it in public.
But affirm it in public.
