The "Lost" Vatican II

Remember those "schemas" the modernists threw out at the beginning of Vatican II, when the whole thing came crashing down (and was never the same again)?

Yep, someone's put them online. Because on the internet, the past is never over.

And it turns out that their content should hardly surprise us today:
The source material is interesting as well. An examination of the footnotes of the discarded schemas reveals an abundant number of citations from Pascendi, Mortalium Animos, the Syllabus and even the anti-Modernist oath, none of which are cited in the 1992 Catechism of the Catholic Church, for example.

The tone is markedly different; instead of the humble "searching for truth" [1] that we note in the conciliar documents, the original schemas lucidly and authoritatively proclaim the truth, as well as about the errors which pervert it.

How Novusordoism was born.

Hmm, very interesting, although I expect these documents have no weight from a legal or doctrinal perspective, except perhaps to the extent they summarize sound doctrine, and in that sense, perhaps they are useful.
