Disident On Disident

The Belgian Dominican priest Edward Schillebeeckx, who had worked unsuccessfully to persuade the assembled bishops of the Second Vatican Council to downgrade the authority of the pope—and who was condemned in 1986 for holding that there was no biblical support for the ordaining of Catholic priests—died in December at age 95.

No with this in mind, Maurice Tim Reidy the blog editor at America had this say.

Edward Schillebeeckx, O.P., who died in December, has been a major influence on Catholic theologians for the last 50 years. Among his students is Fr. Roger Haight, S.J., who here offers a video appreciation of the Belgian Dominican.

The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith is obliged to declare that the above-mentioned assertions contained in the book Jesus Symbol of God by Father Roger Haight S.J. are judged to be serious doctrinal errors contrary to the divine and catholic faith of the Church. As a consequence, until such time as his positions are corrected to be in complete conformity with the doctrine of the Church, the Author may not teach Catholic theology.
