Those "conservatives" who deny that various points of Vatican II constitute a break with Tradition and with previous Magisterial pronouncements - at least by ambiguity, implications and omissions - have failed to listen to the very movers and shakers of the Council who shamelessly acknowledge this.

Yves Congar, one of the artisans of the reform, remarked with quiet satisfaction that "The Church has had, peacefully, its October [Communist] Revolution."

The same Father Yves Congar stated that Vatican II's 'Declaration of Religious Liberty' is contrary to the Syllabus of Pope Pius IX.Regarding Article 2 of the Declaration, he said:

"It cannot be denied that a text like this does materially say something different from the Syllabus of 1864, and even almost the opposite of propositions 15 and 77-79 of that document."

Lastly, some years ago, Cardinal Ratzinger, apparently unruffled by the admission, wrote that he sees the Vatican II text 'Gaudium et Spes' as a "countersyllabus." He wrote:

"If it is desirable to offer a diagnosis of the text [Gaudium et Spes] as a whole, we might say that (in conjunction with the texts on religious liberty and world religions) it is a revision of the Syllabus of Pius IX, a kind of countersyllabus... Let us be content to say here that the text serves as a countersyllabus and, as such, represents on the part of the Church, an attempt at an official reconciliation with the new era inaugurated in 1789."

The new era inaugurated in 1789 consists, in effect, in the elevation of the "Rights of Man" above the rights of God.

In truth, this comment by Cardinal Ratzinger is disturbing, especially since it came from the man who, as head of the Sacred Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith, is now in charge of guarding the purity of Catholic doctrine.

But we can also cite a similar statement by the progressive Cardinal Suenens, himself a Council Father, who spoke in terms of "old regimes" that have come to an end. The words he used in praise of the Council are the most telling, the most chilling and the most damning. Suenens declared, "Vatican II is the French Revolution in the Church."

THE SOONER THE FRENCH REVOLUTION IS REMOVED FROM THE CHURCH, THE BETTER IT WILL BE FOR THE CHURCH. MODERNISTS MUST BE REMOVED FROM LEVERS OF POWER IN THE CHURCH.
