Post subject:  Dom Gueranger on the Church

This could have been directed at men like "Ultima ratio" on Angelqueen, or the Modernists.

Dom Gueranger:
How much they are to be pitied who know thee, and still live enjoying what thou givest thy children, and who yet take side with thine enemies in insulting and betraying thee! They are men whose character is shallowness of mind: they speak their opinions as though they were oracles; they have contacted the flippant effrontery of our age: and to hear them speak of thee, one would suppose that they look on thee as a human institution, which they may approve or blame according to their humour.

To be fair to them, they don't realise that they are approving or blaming "according to their humour," but rather they think that they are judging according to Tradition. It's just that they can't tell us where we can find this "Tradition" that is their proximate rule of faith, in place of the living magisterium of the Catholic Church...

Could we have the reference for this quote, John?

' Flippant effontry' is so basic to daily life in the US; I blame it all on Protestants :D This post prompted another peek at the Wilhelm and Scannell, the natures of Theology. Even imperfect study of this will help we "Dr. Spock" generation ingrates begin to "know our place". ( I am not advocating imperfect study )
