Maybe lay people wonder what priests talk about at deanery meetings.
From this month`s deanery meeting:
The fathers discussed what is wrong with the diocese/universal Church.
`We have forgotten Vatican II and especially the spirit of Vatican II`
Me: I thought the SSPX have been told that Vatican II is optional and not following it doesn`t prevent you being a Catholic.
Disgruntled Father: Without Vatican II we`d be in a terrible state.
Me: How would that terrible state differ from what we have now?
