This well-written piece is by Peter Stavinskas in America, responding to the recent article by Fr. Michael Ryan asking that we “Just Wait” and consult more people before moving forward. Against Fr. Ryan’s claim that the Roman curia is dismantling Vatican II, Fr. Stravinskas writes: “In my view, present efforts are precisely seeking to reclaim ‘the great vision of the council’s’ constitution.”

There are two petitions you get to sign –  this one to “just wait” and  this one because “we’ve waited long enough.” Take your pick. The former went over 10,000 signatures last week, the latter had trouble hitting 2,500 but finally made it. No, I don’t think the side with the most signatures wins. Rather, the higher either petition goes, the more it shows that this is controversial stuff and the implementation could be rocky.
