The persistence of the maximum exponent of today's ecclesial magisterium in criticizingsometimes mockinglythose who are sure of the identity of the faith and joyfully affirm themselves in it, grateful to God for being rooted in the great Tradition of the Church, is a cause of astonishment, bewilderment, and concern for many of the faithful. These faithful Christians are reviled as rigorous Pharisees. The unusual position of the Holy See at this time contradicts the teaching of St. John Paul II and Benedict XVI, who so loved and glorified the splendor of truth (veritatis splendor). The relativistic moralism currently professed by Rome sinks the reality of faith and its ethical and spiritual consequences into the Kantian realm of practical Reason.
