I have read many of his books and I plsn tonget them all.
Why do I say that? Because Mr. Jones, who has written so trenchantly on so MANY, MANY subjects, utterly refuses to 'get' the message of Bishop Williamson's stance- that Vatican II was the greatest heretical assembly of the Church of Rome in its entire history- including her self-excommunication from Orthodoxy in 1054AD!
Jones still believes that modern-day Rome is that Church we who have been 'Left Behind,' still seek with longing. Trouble is, minds imbued with a love of Truth know that everything that Rome stands for now, is utterly opposed to what Rome stood for, even as little as fifty years ago. But Jones is clueless as to that factoid, it would appear. And I say this, as one who has left Rome, who HAD to leave Rome, and only reluctantly converted to Orthodoxy, simply in order to 'remain Catholic.' My heart grieves for those who still remain in Rome. My anger is aroused, upon hearing recently that the 'new Liturgical resources' promulgated in America, now seek to rectify the utter ripping of the soul of Catholicism from we who were 'the faithful,' a generation or more from those first attempts at 'English Liturgy.' After forty years of Novus Ordo, we now get a barely disguised 1979 Book of Common Prayer liturgy in Roman parishes... when we could have had the 1662/1928 BCP Cranmerian prose, forty years ago!
I can offer no better analysis of why this book must be read, and why Jones' conclusions are utterly at odds with his earlier reportage, than these statements from Williamson's own column: "From 2009 to 2011 so-called "Doctrinal Discussions" took place between Vatican experts and four theologians of the SSPX. These discussions made clear just how firmly the Roman authorities are attached to the teachings of Vatican II. That Council attempted to reconcile Catholic doctrine with the concept of man as developed by the "Enlightenment" of the 18th century.
"Thus the Council declares that by reason of the dignity of his nature, the human person has the right to practise the religion of his choice. Accordingly society must protect religious liberty and organize the peaceful co-existence of the various religions. These are invited to take part in ecumenical dialogue, since they all possess their own part of truth.
"In effect, such principles deny that Christ is truly God, and they deny that his Revelation, the deposit of which is guarded by the Church, must be accepted by all men and all societies. Thus the doctrine of religious liberty, as expressed in the Conciliar document Dignitatis Humanae #2, contradicts the teachings of Gregory XVI in Mirari Vos, of Pius IX in Quanta Cura, of Leo XIII in Immortale Dei and of Pius XI in Quas Primas. The doctrine expressed in the Dogmatic Constitution Lumen Gentium #8, according to which divine Providence uses non-Catholic sects as means of salvation, contradicts the teachings of Pius IX in the Syllabus, of Leo XIII in Satis Cognitum and of Pius XI in Mortalium Animos.
"These novel doctrines which along with many others contradict the formal and unanimous teachings of Popes before the Council, can only be qualified in the light of Catholic dogma as heretical."
"Therefore since the unity of the Church rests on the integrity of the Faith, it is clear that the SSPX cannot come to any agreement, be it only "practical" with those who hold such doctrines."
Get this book. Read this book. Ignore Jones' conclusions. Nuff said.
