Sufficiently Nothing

"We cannot affect the outcome because we have consented to move within that cosmion according to a social mode of Christianity that, as Louis Veuillot so vividly put it, is 'sufficiently nothing to live in peace with the rest of the world.'"  [Ferrrara, Liberty, the God that Failed 642 (2012)].

If you think Vatican II and its various false fruits were a surprise, and even if you celebrate Vatican II -- read Veuillot!  As Veuillot (1813-83) already saw, any "Church" that sought to be so much of a nothing as to live in peace with the rest of the world would be denied even that false consolation.  See now the impending proceedings regarding the contraceptive mandate as they concern the Church.
