Von den Quellen des Konzils [Denzinger-Katholik]


Die Konzilsgeschichte wird uns im großen Ganzen eigentlich nur aus zwei Quellen offenbart: durch Rahners Kompendium und Lubacs Tagebuch. Wenn man aber bloß mal die dicken Bände der Acta Synodalia durchzählt, es sind 32, dann könnte man doch auf die Idee kommen, dass da ein ganz kleines bisschen mehr passiert ist, als eben die Geschichten, die wir mit mehr oder minder großem Genuss seit 50 Jahren wiederkauen. Wie kann es sein, dass für den Normalkatholiken die Geschichte des tollsten Konzils aller Zeiten fast vollkommen unzugänglich ist? Irgendwie eine komische Sache, meine ich, und darum habe ich mich bemüht, zumindest einen Teilaspekt auf hiesiger Seite näher zu beleuchten.
Ganz zufällig stieß ich dieser Tage auf einen englischsprachigen Blog mit dem sympathischen Namen Semiduplex, der sich in zwei hochinteressanten Beiträgen einem der entscheidensten Momente des Zweiten Vatikanischen Konzils widmet, nämlich der Rücknahme des von der theologischen Komission vorbereiteten Schemas über die Offenbarungsquellen, De Fontibus Revelationis*, hier und hier.

Für Lesefaule zusammengefasst: Kardinal Döpfner behauptete unter Zuhilfenahme einer selektiven Zitation des Ordo Concilii, das Konzil könne die vorgelegten Schemata einfach zurückweisen und neue einführen. Tatsächlich steht das in einem klaren Widerspruch zum CIC und der Konzilsordnung, die Kard. Ottaviani aufrechtzuerhalten versuchte. Jedoch konnte sich Döpfner durchsetzen, es kam zur Abstimmung, ob das Schema De Fontibus weiter diskutiert werden solle oder nicht - hier gelang also schon, das vorgesehene Prozedere komplett umzuwerfen, die Revolution begann. Und nun wurde verwirrenderweise die Abstimmungsfrage so formuliert, dass die Väter mit Non placet stimmen mussten, wenn sie für die Fortsetzung der Diskussion waren. Doch selbst das half nichts: die Gegner von De Fontibus konnten nicht die nötige Zweidrittelmehrheit erlangen. Trotzdem konnte sich aber die progressive Konzilsfraktion gegen Recht und Mehrheit durchsetzen: Papst Johannes XXIII. intervenierte und setzte eine ad-hoc-Kommission ein, um das Schema umzuschreiben.

Der Rest ist ... Konzilsgeschichte.

*An der auch Johannes Brinktrine mitwirkte, über den ich bald mal wieder was schreiben müsste ...

@CuriaBishop – Culminating "Culture" Shift, Social Media Nabs Vatican Hat [Whispers in the Loggia]

While this week before Christmas has seen two Stateside nods slip under the door, the Pope's saved the best present for last: at Roman Noon this Saturday, word came that Francis had appointed Msgr Paul Tighe, 57 (left) – the Dublin-bred #2 at the Pontifical Council for Social Communications since 2007 – to the new post of adjunct secretary of the Pontifical Council for Culture, elevating him to the episcopacy in the process as titular bishop of Drivasto.

For starters, the move comes as a surprise, arriving in the face of widely-held expectations (his own included) that – with the Vatican's communications entities now being consolidated into a single Secretariat led by three Italians and, for "balance," an Argentine – Tighe would be heading back to Ireland. Most of all, however, given the bishop-elect's longstanding role as the relentless architect behind the Holy See's sometimes turbulent embrace of and adaptation to a "new media" world, that he's sticking around instead (and with a hat, to boot) has the feeling of a watershed moment.

In any event, if you're trying to reform a culture – or advance a new one – the quietly warm, wiry and energetic nominee is the kind of guy you'd want to have around: after all, as Francis' designated coordinator of the blue-ribbon Patten Commission tasked with charting the reform of the Vatican's media operation, Tighe did the very un-Curial work of presiding over his own obsolescence....

Or so he hoped.

To briefly recap a long, eventful decade, it bears recalling how the first throes of digital media were mostly greeted in Vatican circles with ignorance at best, paranoia at worst – and even today, in at least few quarters, some things never change. In the main of the Curia, however, the premium on a fortress mentality carried the day until the chaotic fallout of the 2009 Williamson case, when the lessons learned from the debacle of B16's de-excommunication of a Holocaust-denying traditionalist prelate (whose residency in Argentina is instructive to more recent developments) included a fresh approach to the cyber-world.

As a result, after years of being sidelined in its pleas for a more digital-friendly Vatican, the PCCS suddenly found a new openness to a shift of strategy – to no shortage of displeasure from the Old Guard – with Tighe landing in the driver's seat. By 2011, the council scored a torrent of global attention with its move to hold the Vatican's first ever conference on social media during the beatification of Pope John Paul II – a Tighe idea whose widespread response stunned the organizers' very modest expectations – and by late 2012, five years after the attempt at a first platform (called Pope2You) was epically botched due to a lack of top-level interest and support, the Communications council was the conduit behind the smooth, very successful launches of the share-based News.va portal and the Pope's own @Pontifex Twitter presence, both of them tapped into being by Benedict himself in moments that went viral and then some. Along the way, Tighe has taken to the road to hammer home the "Gospel of New Media" as a frequent speaker in church forums ranging from institutionally-hidebound officialdom to the digitally emergent new generation, sharing the stage with this scribe on more than a few occasions.

Alongside Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi and two other bishops already on-hand at Culture, "adjunct secretary" is a freshly created post for the council, which isn't being collapsed into the new, sprawling Secretariat for Communications. Ergo, while the shape of the nominee's new duties remains to emerge, it stands to be expected or at least hoped that, as a bishop – and one with less of an administrative workload, to boot – Tighe's role as voice and presence for the church's digital reality will only increase.

In the meantime, to put it mildly, his many friends rejoice... and as ways go of marking 11 years since these pages began as a shot in the dark, indeed, how sweet it is.


SVILUPPO: Having had time to reflect on the move, given the simple reality (that is, oddity) of a fourth bishop being added to the masthead of a dicastery with all of 15 staff, something seems to say that, in due course, another shoe of some sort will drop....

Lest anyone forgot, Curia reform-in-piecemeal is the leitmotif of these days. If that's a stumbling block for some, well, the days when Jesus walked the earth would've been a right nightmare for you... starting with the circumstances under which He was designed to be born.

That said, as all his manifold appearances stack up, Bishop-elect Paul's latest major talk – a keynote to his home-crowd on the 40th anniversary of the Irish bishops' national communications office – serves as a fitting, even fiery, sum-up of the man and his mission:

Liberated from the Mindray [The hermeneutic of continuity]


Today is Liberation Day. When I came onto the ward, I was connected by five leads to a machine that displays a moving graph and numbers for ECG, oxygen saturation, non-invasive blood pressure and respiration. Yesterday, in everyday language, that started "playing up." These machines are like a lot of yesterday's technology in that they have a complex nest of menus and submenus with non-obvious titles, default settings and navigation. Once you get lost down a dark alley, it can be difficult to find the path home again.

The problem is that if an "Internet of Things" approach were adopted, and all such data were displayed in a user-chosen GUI on any device, there would be a whole new front opened up for hackers to steal sensitive data.

Anyway, my five-lead machine was replaced with a slightly newer three-lead machine that was basically similar in principle: the "Mindray Datascope Trio." On the website of Pacific Medical, there is a section "Customers who viewed this product also viewed" and at MedEquip, you get "Questions and Answers" beginning "Handle is broken off." This is a bit like a bad review for a little-visited hotel on TripAdvisor. You don't know whether it is just one fusspot who always finds hotel rooms too small, the sink smelly and the staff rude or whether the hotel does actually stink.

Likewise, we might at MedEquip have a lone bodily function monitoring enthusiast whose yorkshire terrier knocked over the Mindray he had saved up for, and smashed the handle off, or whether hospitals the world over have overstretched staff running up and down corridors for replacement Mindrays because of a general faulty handle problem. Comment may be free but it isn't always that helpful. (And let me just make it absolutely clear that in feedback, Integris equipment offered to replace the handle the same day.)

I found it disconcerting to be connected by wires to something called a Mindray, and carefully checked that the ethernet port had nothing in it. I'm not having my oxygen saturation data hacked and sold to my enemies. On Twitter, I declared my intention to root the Mindray, re-boot it with Linux Mint and load films on it. I didn't get round to doing that but I did find the user manual and download it in the name of patient autonomy.

I thought that my next step on the ladder of recovery was to be temporarily disconnected from the Mindray for visits to the bathroom. That would have been welcome enough, but to my joy, the protocol was actually for the electrodes to be unclipped and for me to "mobilise."

Egypt [Korrektiv]

320px-Клеопатра_VII
                                                  Prophecies – The conversion of the Egyptians (Isaiah xix, 19); an altar in Egypt to the true God.
                                        – Pascal, Pensees, 724

My altars are ubiquitous. I touch
The shadows that they cast. Once river mud,
My soul’s basalt is baked and bricked from scratch…

The Greeks had heroes; Rome, its empire’s blood,
But revenant Cleopatra boasts death
As neither myth nor state. So Egypt stood

As proof: my lust and beauty forged its truth
In brickyards, straw or not. The pyramid
And temple praise me. Caesars raise a wreath

Upon my crypt, like writhing asps that bid
My granite-needled will and hang with thread
My womb, an empire’s balance pan, which hid

My heart and raised my feather far above
The reign of Ra. So Serpent Apep’s rule
Commands that woman crush such fleeting love

Upon the open market. Sell a mule
In memory of me, then; buy a colt
To free my soul. When strangers come, the cruel

Indifferent sun still blackens soil, and silt
That bleeds from holy Nile to middling seas
Still shapes my body, bringing to a halt

Advancing Roman altars. Prophecies
Are empty: Take the Jews – they came, they lost,
They conquered nothing. So my enemies

Abjure: I alone renovate this boast.

London Holy Week: times confirmed [LMS Chairman]

IMG_0567
Easter Vigil last year.
Each year since time immemorial (almost) the Latin Mass Society has organised a celebration of the Sacred Triduum in London according to the 1962 books. Last year, for the first time, we managed to include Tenebrae each day. I'm delighted to announce that we will be doing that again, and at a consistent time each day. The times are not the standard ones, because we have to fit round other things at the church, but they do make sense.

The venue is St Mary Moorfields, and we are very grateful to Canon Peter Newby for his hospitality there.

Each Tenebrae is 'anticipated' - according to the 1962 plan they'd be celebrated in the morning, but we are celebrating them the evening before. Actually, doing so is in accord with a much longer tradition: they are liturgies of light and darkness, as the name (tenebra means 'night' or 'shadow') suggests.


St Mary Moorfields, 4-5 Eldon St, London EC2M 7LS

Wednesday 23 March 2016: Spy Wednesday
21:00 Tenebrae

Thursday 24 March 2016: Holy Thursday
18:30 Mass

Wie konnte man sich überreden? [Denzinger-Katholik]

»Es kann bei weisen Katholiken gar keinem Zweifel unterliegen, daß, wie alles Menschliche, so auch die wissenschaftliche Vertheidigung und Darstellung der christliche Lehre einer Vervollkommnung fähig ist; daß diese auch nach den verschiedenen  Zeitumständen sich in etwa anders gestalten muß; daß sie endlich die Fortschritte, welche etwa rein menschliche Wissenschaften machen, nicht unbenutzt lassen darf: aber wie konnte man sich überreden, daß man nicht verbessern und vervollkommnen, sondern ganz und gar umwandeln müsse, daß jene Zeitumstände es forderten und diese Fortschritte es möglich machten, in unsern Tagen der gesammten Theologie nicht nur eine ganz neue Form, sondern auch eine ganz andere Grundlage, und dem kirchlichen Leben eine ganz neue Gestalt, ja erst den wahren Geist zu geben; wie konnte man, sage ich, davon sich überreden, wenn man nicht vorher der Meinung beigetreten war, in unseren Tagen endlich sei der Menschengeist zum vollen Bewußtsein seiner selbst gekommen, und habe wie im Leben so in der Wissenschaft zu begreifen angefangen, was seiner Würde fordere und seine Kräfte vermögen? Nun aber, ist denn nicht dies die eine große Lüge, womit der böse Geist der Zeit alles in Bewegung setzt? 
Glaubend also, daß unsere Zeit ein so großes Licht aufgegangen sei, wollte man der eine durch diese, der andere durch jene sogenannte Grundansicht, die man in neuester Zeit gewonnen, die gesammte theologische Wissenschaft umarbeiten.«

Grateful – Five Minute Friday [Loved As If]

Today, the last Five Minute Friday post for 2015, I’m to choose my own word. Since I’ve had a sore throat since Tuesday night when I woke with a fever, and, a week before that had a sinus infection accompanied by sore throat, I think my word is grateful.

Before I moved to MD to share a house with one best friend and live across the street from my other, being sick meant being alone, struggling to the drug store or supermarket, and just making it through. Even as a child, I pretty much just made it through. Now, they actually take care of me, bring me cough drops, aspirin, and other goodies. It’s not something I’m used to yet. I’m like a deaf person who can hear for the first time: Overwhelmed and so grateful. (Except the deaf people all cry and I’m not there yet.)

Here’s the video of the deaf hearing for the first time. It’s really cool. May God break your hearts this Christmas so that you can be even more grateful (even if, like me, you don’t cry and get all gushy).

And here’s my favourite piece of Advent music. E’en So Lord Jesus Quickly Come:

Matins readings for the Fourth Sunday of Advent [Lectio Divina Notes]

The Sunday readings for the Benedictine Office for the fourth Sunday of Advent are as follows:

Nocturn I

Reading 1 - Isaiah 35:1-4

The land that was desolate and impassable shall be glad, and the wilderness shall rejoice, and shall flourish like the lily.  It shall bud forth and blossom, and shall rejoice with joy and praise: the glory of Libanus is given to it: the beauty of Carmel, and Saron, they shall see the glory of the Lord, and the beauty of our God. Strengthen ye the feeble hands, and confirm the weak knees. Say to the fainthearted: Take courage, and fear not: behold your God will bring the revenge of recompense: God himself will come and will save you.

R. Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, call together the nations, tell it out among the people, and say
* Behold, God our Saviour cometh.
V. Tell it out and make it to be heard; speak aloud and cry
R. Behold, God our Saviour cometh.

Reading 2 - Isaiah 35: 5-7

Then shall the eyes of the blind be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped. Then shall the lame man leap as a hart, and the tongue of the dumb shall be free: for waters are broken out in the desert, and streams in the wilderness. And that which was dry land, shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water. In the dens where dragons dwell before, shall rise up the verdure of the reed and the bulrush.

R. The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor the law-giver from his loins, until he that shall be sent cometh.* And unto him shall the longing of the Gentiles be.
V. His eyes shall be bright with wine, and his teeth white with milk.
R. And unto him shall the desire of the Gentiles be.

Reading 3 - Isaiah 35: 8-10

And a path and a way shall be there, and it shall be called the holy way: the unclean shall not pass over it, and this shall be unto you a straight way, so that fools shall not err therein. No lion shall be there, nor shall any mischievous beast go up by it, nor be found there: but they shall walk there that shall be delivered. And the redeemed of the Lord shall return, and shall come into Sion with praise, and everlasting joy shall be upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and mourning shall flee away.

R: He must become more and more, I must become less and less, he who comes after me but was made before me. I am not worthy to untie the strap of his shoes.
V: I am baptizing you with water, but he will baptise you with the Holy Ghost.
R: I am not worthy to untie the strap of his shoes.

Reading 4 - Isaiah 41:1-4

Let the islands keep silence before me, and the nations take new strength: let them come near, and then speak, let us come near to judgment together. Who hath raised up the just one from the east, hath called him to follow him? he shall give the nations in his sight, and he shall rule over kings: he shall give them as the dust to his sword, as stubble driven by the wind, to his bow. He shall pursue them, he shall pass in peace, no path shall appear after his feet. Who hath wrought and done these things, calling the generations from the beginning? I the Lord, I am the first and the last.

Nocturn II - (Sermon of St Leo the Great, Sermon 12)

Reading  5 - Dearly beloved brethren, if we study attentively the history of the creation of our race, we shall find that man was made in the image of God, that his ways also might be an imitation of the ways of his Maker. This is the natural, real, and highest dignity to which we are capable of attaining, that the goodness of the Divine nature should have a reflection in us, as in a glass. As a mean of reaching this dignity, we are daily offered the grace of our Saviour, for as in the first Adam all men are fallen, so in the Second Adam can all men be raised up again.

R. Unto us shall a Child be born, and His name shall be called the Mighty God.
* He shall sit upon the throne of His father David, and shall reign, and the government shall be upon His shoulder.
V. In Him shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed; all nations shall serve Him.
R. He shall sit upon the throne of His father David, and shall reign, and the government shall be upon His shoulder.

Reading  6 - Our restoration from the consequences of Adam's fall is sheer mercy of God, and nothing else; we should not have loved Him unless He had first loved us, and scattered the darkness of our ignorance by the light of His truth. This the Lord promised by the mouth of Isaiah, where He saith: I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not, and I will lead them in paths that they have not known I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them and not forsake them. And again: I was found of them that sought Me not; I was made manifest unto them that asked not after Me.

R. Behold, the fulness of the time is come, wherein God hath sent forth His Son into the world, born of a Virgin, made under the law* To redeem them that were under the law.
V. God, for His great love wherewith He loved us, hath sent His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh.
R. To redeem them that were under the law

Reading  7 - And we know from the Apostle John how God fulfilled His promise. We know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know Him That is True, and be in Him That is True, even in His Son. And again: Let us therefore love God, because He first loved us. 

R. O virgin of Israel, turn again to thy cities.* How long wilt thou go about sorrowing? Thou shalt bring forth the Lord thy Saviour, a new offering in the earth; men shall walk in paths of salvation.
V. I have loved thee with an everlasting love therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.
R. How long wilt thou go about sorrowing? Thou shalt bring forth the Lord thy Saviour, a new offering in the earth. Men shall walk in paths of salvation.

Reading  8 - For His great love then wherewith he hath loved us, God reneweth His likeness in us. And, moreover, in order that He may find in us the reflection of His goodness, He giveth us that whereby to work along with Himself, (Who worketh all in all,) lighting, as it were, candles in our dark minds, and kindling in us the fire of His love, to make us love not Himself only, but likewise, in Him, whatsoever He loveth.

Nocturn III (St Gregory, Homily 20 on the gospels)

Reading 9 - John said unto the multitude, that came forth to be baptised of him: O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come? The wrath to come in one sense signifieth the great vengeance of the Latter Day the sinner that repenteth not of his sin now, will have no mean whereby to flee from punishment then. Let us remark that addressing evil children copying the example of evil parents, the Baptist calleth them a generation of vipers in that they were envious at the righteous, and persecuted them; that they repaid evil for evil; that they hunted out ways of harming their neighbours, in all these things following the pattern of carnal parents, the prophet likeneth them to a venomous brood hatched from a venomous stock.

R. I have sworn, saith the Lord, that I will not be wroth any more with the earth; for the mountains and the hills shall receive My righteousness.
* And the covenant of My peace shall be in Jerusalem.
V. My salvation is near to come, and My righteousness to be revealed.
R. And the covenant of My peace shall be in Jerusalem.

Reading 10 - We also have sinned, we have fallen into wicked habits. What must we do, if we would flee from the wrath to come? Let us hear John. Bring forth fruits worthy of repentance. In which words let us remark that the Friend of the Bridegroom demandeth not only fruits of repentance, but fruits worthy of repentance. 

R. We will not go back from thee. Thou, O Lord, shalt quicken us, and we will call upon thy name.
* Cause thy face to shine upon us, and we shall be saved.
V. Remember us, O Lord, with the favour that Thou showest unto thy people; O visit us with thy salvation.
R. Cause thy face to shine upon us, and we shall be saved.

Reading 11 - The former are one thing, and the latter another. In considering then what are fruits worthy of repentance, we may remark that if we had done nothing unlawful we might have had free use of things which are lawful, and been able to sanctify ourselves without abstaining from indulgence in the things of the world. But if any one, for example, hath fallen into fornication, or perhaps, into what is much worse, adultery, he ought to make up for his lawless pleasure by abstaining in some degree from lawful enjoyments. 

R. Consider how great this man is, who is entered in for the salvation of the nations; he is King of Righteousness* Without descent, nor end of life.
V. The Fore-runner is for us entered, made an High Priest for ever after the order of Melchisedek.
R. Without descent, nor end of life.

Reading 12 - He that hath sinned less is not bound to mortify himself as much as he that hath sinned more, nor he that is innocent like him that is guilty. Let every one hearing these words bring forth fruits worthy of repentance, proceed to judge himself by his own conscience, and the more he perceiveth that he hath sinned, the greater penance let him do.

R. Send forth the Lamb, O Lord, the Ruler of the land* From the rock in the wilderness unto the mount of the daughter of Zion.
V. Show us thy mercy, O Lord, and grant us thy salvation.
R. From the rock in the wilderness unto the mount of the daughter of Zion.
V Gloria Patri et Filio et Spiritui Sancto
V. Show us thy mercy, O Lord, and grant us thy salvation.

St Luke 3: 1-6

Die Kartause von La Valsainte. - Es ist der 23. Dezember. (2/3) [BRUNONIS]

Normal 0 21 false false false DE X-NONE X-NONE MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 Jawohl, hier fließt ein lebendiges Wasser, jenes, von dem Jesus spricht - blitzt es in beglückendem Seligsein in meiner Seele auf. Und der beklemmende Druck in dieser so weiten, unvertrauten Stille ist auf einmal einer jubelnden Freude gewichen.


Der Bruder führt mich in ein weißes Zimmerchen, das St. Bruno zum Schutzheiligen hat und wo ich während der Tage meines Aufenthaltes in der Kartause wohnen werde. Er zeigt mir, wie ich den Kartäuserofen mit Hobelspänen anfeuern und das Feuer mit Holzstücken unterhalten soll, die in einem Behälter am Fußende des Bettes aufgeschichtet liegen. Schon prasselt das Feuer, und es wird warm im kleinen, weißen Gemach.

Noch vor dem Abendessen, das wir diesmal später als gewöhnlich, um 7 Uhr einnehmen, kommt ein Pater, um uns zu begrüßen.

Er steht vor mir mit der kleinen Laterne in der Hand in creme-weißem Kleide mit großer Kapuze und schwerem Skapulier, das beidseitig unter der Mitte von einem breiten Bande zusammengehalten wird. Um den glattrasierten Kopf liegt ein schmaler Haarkranz.

Er spricht mit uns in ruhiger Sachlichkeit, als ob er eine Konversation fortsetzen würde, über das Kartäuserleben.

Kartäuserofen einer Zelle der Großen Kartause
Wir sitzen um den kleinen Ofen, drei Menschen in der Weltstille. Hinter uns auf dem Tische steht die Lampe. Ich lausche und sehe mir den Pater an. Silbern schon liegt das Haar auf seinem edlen Charakterkopf. Eine kühn beherrschte Kraft strahlt von ihm aus. Und so unsagbar ruhig und gut ist er.

Wie eine Offenbarung von der Wahrheit fällt alles, was er so einfach und schlicht über das Leben der Kartäuser erzählt, in meine Seele. Es ist einzig Liebe, heldenhafte Liebe, vor der jedes irdische Pathos zusammenbricht.

(Pieter Van der Meer de Walcheren. Das weisse Paradies.)

O Adonai, et Dux domus Israel,
qui Moysi in igne flammae rubi apparuisti,
et ei in Sina legem dedisti:
veni ad redimendum nos in brachio extento.




O Adonai, and leader of the House of Israel,
who appeared to Moses in the fire of the burning bush
and gave him the law on Sinai:
Come and redeem us with an outstretched arm.
