"Is this the reform or the suicide of the Church?" (Fr.
"If the Church were not Divine, the [Second
Vatican] Council would have buried her." (Cardinal Siri)
"It was believed that after the council a sunny day in
the Church's history would dawn, but instead there came a day of clouds, storms
and darkness." (Pope Paul VI, 1972 A.D.)
Thirty-seven years after the end of the only church
council of the 20th century, the jury has come in with its verdict: Vatican II
appears to have been an unrelieved disaster for Roman Catholicism." (Buchanan)
"The liturgical reform, welcomed with so much idealism
and hope by many priests and lay people alike has turned out to be a liturgical
destruction of startling proportions - a debacle worsening with each passing
year. Instead of the hoped-for renewal of the Church and of Catholic life, we
are now witnessing a dismantling of the traditional values and piety on which
our faith rests." (Msgr. Gamber)
the final session of the Council, the most essential, in which the Pope [Paul
VI] was to bestow upon all humanity the teachings of the Council. He announced
this to me on that day with these words, 'I am about to blow the seven trumpets
of the Apocalypse' [that is, the trumpets which announced the disasters that
were to befall earth - fire, hail, falling star, death, etc.]" (Jean Guitton,
personal friend of Pope Paul VI)
