It would have been more accurately named "Catholic FAIL Conference." It pandered to everyone (except us Promethean neo-Pelagian ideologues or whatever we're being insulted as today; if I say "Bubble Catholics" regular readers will, at least, know who I mean).
The highlight was the incorporation of a classic Wiccan invocation of the Four Quarters during the so-called "Native American Mass." That's right. The backbone of nearly every Wiccan or Ceremonial Magic ritual is the invocation of the quarters, each with its element: Air, Fire, Water and Earth. As he watched this unholy marriage between Wicca and the sacrifice of the Mass, the Bear didn't know whether to laugh or cry. St. Kateri Tekawitha, pray for us and your exploited brothers and sisters.
If only we just do more Vatican II, more liturgical abuse, more pandering, more new and improved, and now, more witchcraft, then that will turn the Church around! The kids will love it. Indians for Pete's sake!
