Shawn notes that one difficulty with Integrist screeds is "how easy it must be for Mr. Ferrara to make such wide sweeping indictments which he knows his opponent would have to take some time and energy to unpack in order to refute properly." Christine also wonders "if it is worthwhile commenting on them at all, as he seems to question entirely the premise of ecumenism as set forth in Vatican II."
Obviously neither of you had to respond -- but you took the time (and had the patience) to do so. I also appreciated Shawn's "Prescription Against Traditionalism", an excerpt of which is employed in his refutation of Ferrara's objections to the word "subsists". I've learned a great deal from reading both of your blogs, and I'm sincerely thankful. God bless you both!
1. That's "begging via blogging", a new term I learned from The Corner. ;-)
