I wasn't expecting the Spanish Inquisition!

"They are not few who, in the shadow of a nonexistent Council, in terms of both letter and spirit, have sown agitation and disquiet in the hearts of many of the faithful." (para. 2)

The Spanish Bishops have issued a document blaming poor catechesis and liberal theologians for the decline of the Church in Spain:

The sickness [of the Spanish Church] is “the secularization within the Church”: a widespread loss of faith caused in part by “theological propositions that have in common a deformed presentation of the mystery of Christ.”

I remember when I found out that the Spanish Carmelites no longer wear the habit. The Spanish Carmelites--in Spain. Talk about internal secularization...

The cure is precisely that of restoring life to the profession of faith: “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God” (Matthew 16:16), in the four areas where it is most seriously undermined today:
– the interpretation of Scripture,
– Jesus Christ as the only savior of all men,
– the Church as the Body of Christ,
– moral life.

The document was drafted by the Communio bishops in conjuction with Ratzinger when he was still cardinal.

It is availible here in the original Spanish.
