A Point of Interest for Latin Mass Community in Sungenis/Catechism Controversy

For those who are unaware, this controversy is outlined in depth in the PDF from Robert Sungenis linked below, which I would comment on briefly only to say that this analysis is better than usual from Mr. Sungenis. I wholeheartedly agree with his assessment that the USCCB's adoption of a scriptural passage as a replacement for the previous heretical statement is a clever cover for the same idea. Benedict used the same technique in his Latin prayer for "the Jews" which I commented on back in February of this year HERE. These guys love to run amok within St. Paul's very difficult letter to the Romans. They'd throw the rest of the New Testament out and keep only that if they could, it seems.

I still challenge Robert Sungenis, or anyone else for that matter, to either present proof that Abe Foxman and company are genetic descendants of Jacob or cease referring to them as "Jews."

Now, what should interest the Latin Mass community is the fact that the Fr. James Massa who Robert Sungenis refers to throughout the PDF linked to above was assigned by a bishop in the NY diocese to a longstanding Latin Mass community shortly before he was promoted to his present position as executive director of the USCCB Secretariat of Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs. He continues to offer the Latin Mass at the same location to this day. With that in mind, I recommend reading:
