The Heresy of Pastoral Detachment

via Rorate

In a book length interview with Cardinal Sarah we have the following quote which makes me want to cheer, which, I suppose, indicates the current state of things.

"The idea that would consist in placing the Magisterium in a nice box by detaching it from pastoral practice -- which could evolve according to the circumstances, fads, and passions -- is a form of heresy, a dangerous schizophrenic pathology. I affirm solemnly that the Church of Africa will firmly oppose every rebellion against the teaching of Christ and the Magisterium."

Amen and Amen.

I have a feeling I will be using this quote frequently over the coming months.
