The New Church and the Rolling Stones concert

Richard Cipolla, "Now it’s a Trifecta" (RC, January 30, 2014):
It will not be pleasant to have to go through a period in the Church that tries to pick up where Pope John Paul II halted the march to New Church. It will be like being at a Rolling Stones concert, always a bit embarrassing even for their faithful fans, who all have grey hair, are a bit paunchy and are all in their 60s and 70s. But you see, time is always on the side of the Church. The mantra chanted today, even by Catholic politicians, that those who oppose gay marriage, assisted suicide, abortion and all the liberal agenda based on the rights of the insatiable naked self—these are on “the wrong side of history”. But this is not possible for the Church, for her Lord is the Lord of history.
