There are, in fact, nearly an infinite number of reasons Vatican II and all it spawned was the worst catastrophe the Christian world has experienced since the French Revolution. As many as there are or will be human souls, I guess.
Perhaps one of the worst was the destruction of the religious orders. A self-wrought disaster equivalent to Henry VII’s dissolution of the monasteries… except more global.
This total sweep of religious orders by the virus of novusordoism has left all the ladies looking for a suitable port in a storm. And very often, finding nothing. Or worse, a cult.
A non-Catholic, non-believing friend just sent me the following:
_“A full blown nun just came into the tea shop looking for donations. For a second I thought you sent her!
From the order of the Magnificat of the Mother. Sound familiar?”_
Actually, yes. I respond: “It’s an odd phenomenon that the collapse of these kinds of instituions in the Church since the 60s has created the space for what I have called the ‘do-it-yourselfers’. This sounds a lot like one of those. I’ll look it up.”
Aaand yep. Sure enough… they’re a cult.
And of course, we knew. How? Well, the very first indication that you are faced with someone who is not in union with the Catholic Church is that she looks like a real nun. Ironic, wot?
Whereas, if you meet someone, most often an Asian or an Indian, especially in Italy, dressed in a drab little grey polyester skirt-suit with a little blue or grey tea-towel affair perched jauntily on the back of her greying head, you’re probably talking to a real “sister”. And that’s kind of the best-case scenario.
Worst case involves a lot more polyester, and quite a bit of George Soros’ money.
