"The Five Wounds of the Liturgical Mystical Body of Christ"

"The Five Wounds of the Liturgical Mystical Body of Christ"
"The Five Wounds of the Liturgical Mystical Body of Christ" according to Bishop Athanasius Schneider: 1. Mass versus populum. 2. Communion in the hand. 3. The Novus Ordo Offertory prayers. 4. Disappearance of Latin in the Ordinary Form. 5. Liturgical services of lector and acolyte by women and ministers in lay clothing.

self-absorbed promethean neopelagianism

Is this directed at traditionalists (from Evangelii Gaudium)?

"The other is the self-absorbed promethean neopelagianism of those

 who ultimately trust only in their own powers and feel superior to 

others because they observe certain rules or remain intransigently 

faithful to a particular Catholic style from the past. A supposed 

soundness of doctrine or discipline leads instead to a narcissistic 

and authoritarian elitism, whereby instead of evangelizing, one 

analyzes and classifies others, and instead of opening the door to 

grace, one exhausts his or her energies in inspecting and verifying.

 In neither case is one really concerned about Jesus Christ or others.

These are manifestations of an anthropocentric immanentism. It is 

impossible to think that a genuine evangelizing thrust could emerge

 from these adulterated forms of Christianity."

Yes, it definitely is.

Who else can be described as "faithful to a particular Catholic style from the past."

We now have a new derogatory term for traditionalists. We are "anthropocentric immantentists!"

The answer to your question is: obviously. Let's keep in mind that these words come from a full blown modernist. It's good when one's enemies disapprove of you.

How can one "trusts only on his own power" if "he observes certain rules?" It's an oxymoron.
Trouble is, Pope Francis likes to throw around derogatory terms like "ideologue," "anthropocentric," "pelagians," etc., perhaps not realizing that those words apply to him himself.
