How many ecumenical councils are there?
August 11, 2010
First off, I am so happy to be able to write for this great blog. My name is Dan McLockinload and I’m a small town lawyer, and life long Catholic since I was born in 1896. I love the Church and I love America and I thank God for our great men and women in uniform (except the gay ones) who defend us against the combined enemies of church and America.
Now, in my retirement, I’m doing some historical research. On ecumenical councils. How many are there? Well, if you look at the liberal mainstream books, they will tell you 21. Here’s something interesting. Not all ecumenical councils were considered to be ecumenical councils at the time. Sometimes, they sit back years later, and say “heck, yeah, boss, that meeting a’back then was really an ecumenical council, gosh darn it!”. Well, I think there are not 21, but 22 ecumenical councils. What one was missing then? I’ll tell you. It’s the Philadelphia constitution of 1787, and the major document is our great constitution, which tells us that our rights to be free and be happy come from God alone. This was a big change for the church, even if the church wasn’t really there, they were there in spirit, and some day they will realise this. In fact I think John Paul realized this a bit when he wrote Centesimus Annus, but it’s not official yet. It will be some day.
Excuse me, my friends, I have to stop now and chase some darned pesky kids off my lawn. Se ya’ll later!
