Your reference to the church as "belonging to Christ" while true, has limited value regarding this upcoming conference. While I have no doubt that the good sister probably thought that the wounded, rebellious will of leftists like hers(by definition progressives dismiss original sin)trumps God's Will, I don't think the same rule applies to this Remnant post. It does not literally mean that the church "belongs" to them.

The author or authors mean that they identify with their longing for the church before things started to go haywire since the council. So it's kind of silly for a scholar like yourself to draw that parallel.

As far as the evangelization goes which you refer to so blithly, which I presume refers to the "new springtime" of the church or the "new evangelization" that Pope John Paul wrote about in such lofty terms, it's not without irony that his own pontificate did so much to undermine the absolute necessity of converting the world to Christ. Dialogue, replaced the harder but much more fruitful missionary work Christ calls the church to. And the misguided Francis is the bitter fruit of his post Vatll predecessors, including john Paul.
