T&A News: HHJPII added to Trinity

CATHOLIC BLOGOSPHERE: Here in this quaint village of several hundred, reigning prelates have taken the year anniversary of the passing of Pope John Paul II's passing to infallibly define him as part of the Godhead.

"We, the Most Holy Roman Blogosphere, officially affirm, define, and declare that Pope John Paul II is the Fourth Person of the Trinity," the encyclical, Ioannes Paulos Caritas Est, says, and further, "let he who blogs otherwise be held anathema."

Court publications, such as Crisis, immediately welcomed this pronouncement, noting that this should not shake the faith of conservative Catholics. The US Bishops' Conference released a statement to be circulated in diocesan newspapers: " ... that there should be four persons in the Trinity should cause no scandal, as there were five books in the Hitchhiker's Guide Trilogy ... such are the mysteries of Douglas Adams, or, umm, our Faith."

More progressive thinkers are not as pleased with the news. Bishop Fox of Rochester has said that while the last pope was a great man, he was more likely an Avatar of Kali, or perhaps the 67th reincarnation of the little-known Pierogi Lama, so beloved by Polish Buddhists.

Orthodox Patriarch Alexy of Moscow immediately blogged to denounce the definition as "another attempt to glorify the Roman See at the expense of the other patriarchs."

Unfortunately, no analysis has been forthcoming from the Traditional Catholic blogosphere, who are currently enmeshed in a divisive battle over whether Sanctus Bells should be flared or tapered.

To paraphrase your introduction, "Byzantine by conversion (from Serbian Orthodoxy)", Latin by the Grace of God! A great post! Too many people think J2P2 was a Catholic. It is our penance that we havern't had a Catholic Pope since 09.X.58!
