Vatican II: An anniversary worth forgetting, but numbers that cannot be forgotten

Posted by Adfero. at 10/11/2016

Today is the 54th anniversary of the opening of the Second Vatican Council. There’s really not much left to be written about this — all you need to know, frankly, is easily found by visiting a local parish. But it is a good opportunity to look at the numbers since the Council’s close in 1965. It’s also very interesting to look at them in comparison to Pope Venerable Pius XII, which we provide below.

The following statistics via CARA:

As numbers don’t lie, the three charts above show the undeniable slow death of the Church. It also shows the so-called “Francis Effect” has had zero effect on Sunday Mass attendance.

Now, for a glimpse of what the Church was. The numbers of Pius XII, the pontiff preceding the Council, are below. And they are equally as staggering in a good way as the post-Council numbers are devastatingly bad:

One comment on “Vatican II: An anniversary worth forgetting, but numbers that cannot be forgotten

  1. A few points on statistics and numbers. Pre-Vatican II priests were saying the Traditional Latin Mass and were trained in seminaries which, at least in principle, were supposed to uphold the orthodox Catholic faith. The total population of Catholics is larger now with fewer vocations. But missing from the stats are any numbers on orthodox candidates for the priesthood who were turned away. We have seen grade schools and high schools closed since 1965, as well as what were once “Catholic” colleges and universities taken over by heretical progressive modernists and anti-Catholic liberals. Counting progressive modernists dedicated to the Spirit of Vatican II as “Catholic” priests or candidates for the priesthood distorts the statistics. The same would apply for the numbers of marriages. If the couples have been brainwashed in progressive modernism in the Spirit of Vatican II the likelihood that these are real “Catholic” marriages is slim. So the figures for 2015 and 2016 would be even lower. It’s sad but true. There may be a drop in Mass attendance, but of the 24% attending Mass in 2016 the vast majority of that 24% is attending the modernist Novus Ordo where the priest often is not an orthodox Catholic.
