It means pretty much zilch. Catholic training in the old ways is meaningless in the face of the modern insistence on revamping and of hiding inconvenient doctrines of the past. In fact such training invites scorn and derision from much of the modern Catholic clergy and from the seminaries.elijahmaria said:Since the Magisterium is the teaching authority of the Church then the catechetical texts I offered here are part of the ordinary magisterium.
That should be obvious to anyone who has your training in Catholic matters.
Every article in the Catholic Encyclopedia http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/ has the Imprimatur of some Archbishop.
But people keep telling us -- that's wrong and that's wrong and that's just a lot of hooey!
From among my many sources within the Catholic priesthood I am familiar with both sides of this modern divide.
