Sire, Henry Sire ã 5 Read & Download review Phoenix from the Ashes: The Making, Unmaking, and Restoration of Catholic Tradition E of an ideological thesis and honest dedication to intense research on subjects whose ultimate existential value the ‘unbiased’ historian somehow fears to reveal to his readers Henry Sire courageously shuts no doors and stifles no evidence employing a passionate and lively prose that leaves no doubt regarding his sense of the crucial moral and cultural importance of his topic” JOHN RAO author of Black Legends and the Light of the World and Removing the Blindfold “For Catholics feeling lost at sea as a result of the turbulent crisis tossing and flooding the Barue of Peter Henry Sire’s work identifies clear landmarks to steady our gaze He situates the present disarray within the larger historical context of the Arian heresy and Protestant revolution and points to the buoys of tradition liturgical doctrinal and philosophical as sure guides to our way out Sire distills entire epochs of history from the first centuries of the Church through the current pontificate into a highly readable and thought provoking story In the course of his tale he exposes the radical progressivism of the Second Vatican Council and its after effects as well as the tepid conservatism of the Reform of the Reform and the Hermeneutic of Continuity” BRIAN M MCCALL aut.

Phoenix from the Ashes: The Making, Unmaking, and Restoration of Catholic Tradition Read & Download Û 5 H.J.A. Sire, Henry Sire ã 5 Read & Download review Phoenix from the Ashes: The Making, Unmaking, and Restoration of Catholic Tradition Phoenix from the Ashes is a comprehensive look at the state of the Catholic Church since the Second Vatican Council one of a series of recurrent periods of moral and intellectual crisis to which it has succumbed in its history A chapter on the Council describes in detail how Pope Paul VI diverted it by placing it under the exclusive control of European liberals An eually close study is devoted to the liturgical “reform” entrusted by the same pope to a group of radicals whose work undermined the spiritual and devotional legacy of the faithful The loss of orthodox teaching and the disorientation following upon these changes produced a grave crisis in both clergy and laity but the movement of return to tradition visible today promises a revival of the full Catholic life of the Church Catholic readers now have a complete and eminently accessible account of the last 50 years of momentous changes in the Church right up to the pontificates of Benedict XVI and Francis I “This wide ranging account of the self destruction of the Roman Catholic Church and its identification of her only realistic route back to the land of the living simultaneously strikes a blow at history’s two most prevalent temptations rejection or twisting of evidence in the servic. Set aside at least a dozen or so hours to give Sire s book the time and attention it needs and then read it with marker in hand for there will be innumerable passages to be underscored for future rumination This is not a book to be read and then committed to a shelf in one s personal library It fairly demands instead a long and very thoughtful reading followed by lengthy reflection It will take me considerable time for example just to compile the notes I have taken on this erudite and encyclopedic perspicacious and provocative cri de coeur about what has happened to the Catholic faith after Vatican II The reader of Sire s jeremiad will at once grasp the problem of the preposition after in the sentence immediately above The collapse of the faith is it the cause the conseuence or the companion of Vatican Council II If Sire s analysis is trenchant his literary temperament is acerbic he may occasionally be wrong but he is never in doubt The result is a fascinating if deeply flawed bookSire argues that Vatican II was a betrayal of the Church s faith 205 and the pontificate of Pope Paul VI was the most disastrous pontificate in history 363 it was he Sire tells us who is chiefly responsible for the vandalism of Vatican II 205 273 The Council he says issued deplorable documents such as Gaudium et Spes 203 and Dignitatis Humanae Ch 13 generally capitulated to the ignes fatui of the modern world and effectively destroyed both the holy Mass and the priesthood To Sire much if not in fact all of the religious insanity plaguing the Church over the last fifty years is not after the Council but directly because of it Still one need only consult the daily newspaper to confirm a key tenet of Sire s In today s desacralized world progress is whatever conduces to the destruction of the Christian order 158 Where do we find the Catholic champions in politics education the arts and science to combat the ethical ills and the intellectual errors of our time In the mindless moral stupor they confuse with knowledge so many contemporary Catholic leaders rise with cosmic insolence to the defense of the fads fashions and fantasies of the day along with monstrous evils disguised as compassion and remain intransigently unrepentant about Him whom they deny cf Rev 218 Time and again Sire adroitly lays the ax to the horrors and heresies of Modernism characterized by a relativism subjectivism and hedonism which have not just influenced but have in fact infected the Church and tragically many of its clergy Sire is at his best one regrets having to put it that way in exposing what he calls the Bugninified liturgy 256 which came to us he explains from the intellectual and moral degradation of the Council The spiritual and aesthetic vulgarities of the world 341 345 353 wormed their way into traditional Catholic teaching and liturgy much to the delight of many false shepherds especially Ch 13 cf 1 Tm 620 21 Some of these shepherds were ignorant some were malevolent he writes in any case before Vatican II all had taken an oath against the evil of Modernism Two thousand bishops who had taken that oath were unable to recognize Modernism when it jumped up and bit them at Vatican II 140 Abandoning and traducing the teaching of Pius IX Pius X Leo XIII and Pius XI the Council surrendered contends Sire to a spiritually and philosophically incoherent secular ideology which has led to the triumph of barbarians 158 154 a position explained four decades ago by Alasdair MacIntyre whose work by the way is missing from Sire s truncated bibliography Sire s ululations are of course generally correct Read better skim for instance the liturgical applesauce tip of the hat to the late Justice Scalia found in say Rebuilt which only confirms Sire s analyses and admonitions about a Church lost in the miasma of Modernist lunacy Masses facing the people the abrogation of Latin the universal and timeless language of the Church holy Communion in the hand beach music and on and on all testify to the profanation of the holy Mass cf 157 The first illusion of a decadent age he writes is blindness to its own disgrace 149 Call it defining deviancy down or a twisted kind of religious Overton Window but those thoughts and things which would have had Catholics in the 1950s looking for an exorcist have now become practically de rigueur The problem with Sire s very important book lies not in an error in his thesis about the Church s having largely surrendered to the way of the world and the flesh and the devil but in his merciless prosecution of men who often if not always deserve better One s reaction to Paul VI I think ought not to be unrelieved anger at but in fact pity for a man sadly often out of his depth Sire makes no mention by the way of Paul s courage in upholding the teaching of the faith in Humanae Vitae 1968 He stridently and superciliously opposes the pitchforking of John Paul II into Heaven 437 and he fails to uote so much as a passage from Evangelium Vitae or Veritatis Splendor or Fides et Ratio and so many encyclicals filled with light against the darkness which to Sire seem not to exist Neither does he include say Weigel s Witness to Hope nor its seuel The End and the Beginning in the truncated bibliography previously mentioned Sire uestions the validity of many ordinations under the new rite 323 thinks that the modern Catholic clergy are at best playing at being priests from a script written by Hollywood 330 and then summarizes by suggesting with of course no corroborative footnote that since the 1960s no one with the semblance of a brain has entered the Catholic priesthood 403 retreating then only very slightly from that defamation by contending that if someone ostensibly gifted with a brain has become a priest he must disguise his acumen Read the last sentence again Is such a comment the mark of the dispassionate scholar or an indication of a kind of churlish cognitive dissonance The Church is full of fools and knaves it is ever so Yet the Church too by the grace of God is filled with saints and martyrs it is ever so Calumniating all is not only literarily wrong it violates the higher Commandment of Exodus 2016 Sire chose a metaphysical shotgun to fire at an area target he ought to have chosen a rifle to aim at point targets of which one must sorrowfully admit there are too many in Christ s Church cf Phil 318 19 Sire does us and himself no favors in investing his otherwise sterling book with this kind of invective which should be beneath him In many ways Ch 15 the book becomes a celebration principally of the Society of St Pius X SSPX which has no canonical status in the Church or even of the Society of St Pius V SSPV in Oyster Bay Cove NY and readers ought to be aware of this proclivity or prejudice in Sire s effort Sire is right though in implicitly arguing that in the secular world the only good Catholic today is a bad Catholic What secular opinion wants to see Sire writes is a toothless Church a brainless Church a voiceless Church in short a decrepit Church we have been given by the conciliar renewal and when it sees the Church recover its strength its rage will be terrible 458 When we turn from the present barbarism and the desperate desire on the part of some very well known Catholic authorities to be popular 453 cf John 1243 and when we return to the Church s Tradition 460 and its timeless liturgy we have please God the prospect of building a nation united in worship of the true God 46 Despite a corrupt zeitgeist and a culture largely given over to depravity we know with Sire that Christian spiritual and moral truth is powerful than the illusions of rationalism 461 by which he means a superstitious and pervasive moral and mental illness 110 111 62 114 307 One may rue the marring polemical excesses and irruptions of Sire s book but this is a volume to be read studied debated and then studied again by Catholics who fervently pray and work Ora et Labora for the coming of what Sire points to in the last five words of his book s title the Restoration of Catholic Tradition Although Sire is finally right that in God s time the Phoenix will rise from the Ashes he might have made a wiser ornithological choice the indefectible Church will rise not because it is Phoenix but because it is Pelican the ancient symbol of Our Lord who feeds us as pelicans in times of starvation feed their young with their own blood with the holy Eucharist Deo gratias
