|St. Ignatius Transformed|
In my book, The Tide is Turning Toward Catholicism; I chronicled the liberal Catholic elitists and clergy who can’t understand why no one is joining their dying orders and why conservative ones are flourishing, the same can be said of their compatriots in the dying liberal Protestant denominations.
Much to the dismay of the likes of Father Schroth SJ of America Magazine, new Jesuit seminarians are much more likely to find infinity with the late Cardinal Avery Dulles SJ and EWTN’s Father Mitch Pacwa SJ than the likes of Father Drinian SJ or himself.
The great Catholic minds from Saint Albert the Great to Saint Thomas Aquinas never had a problem agreeing with the Church.
As a matter of fact it was the founder of the Jesuits, Saint Ignatius of Loyola who once said, “The black I see is white, if the Church says it is so.” One can only imagine his ire seeing what some of his order has done to the Catholic colleges to which they were entrusted.
One can hardly imagine a dissident Catholic liberal agreeing with St Ignatius of Loyola’s famous quote today. The liberal dissident will often in turn site his conscience as the chief arbiter of his decisions, never mentioning the Church’s teaching on a “well formed conscience.”
