I read a very good article this morning by Fr. James Schall, S.J. on the rise of Cross-less Catholicism in the world. His points are spot on as he writes about schools, especially Catholic schools, watering down the perceived “negativity” of our faith. He describes it as “Faith being transformed into a social movement” and warns of the dangers of diversity and multiculturalism being applied to faith. I encourage you to read this and share your reaction/comments below.
The Rise of Cross-less Catholicism
By James V. Schall, S.J.In the Australian on May 22, Tess Livingston covered the new translation of the Missal. This good work needed early explanation. George Cardinal Pell, who was instrumental in the English translation, remarked: “The previous translators seemed a bit embarrassed to refer to angels, sacrifice and perpetual virginity. They went softly on sin and redemption.”
