The Church has no fear of being on the “wrong side of history”, for her Bridegroom is seated at the right hand of the Father.
I do not suggest that in the long view the universal Church won’t correct its course or correct a theological error after a merry stroll down the cultural lane but our Church’s long experience and that of today surely shows that we can proclaim and live out error for a while. (Silence from Rome demonstrates agreement with this statement)
If the princes of the Church can declare and demand obedience to error without the Vatican providing a correction what else are we to believe? Are the Bishop’s to be considered outside the Church? I haven’t heard anyone say so.
I understand the desire to calm fears as if we were children in a storm but as those with an adult faith we should steel ourselves for the long haul and understand this correction might take a lifetime and another Trent Council to correct. We need to weather the storm with resolve and fierce faith. Like those in a tornado, just hunker down and ride it out.
