Should Catholics Attend the New Mass? - Part II of II - Episode 15 SSPX FAQ Videos.
sspx.org - As we examined in our previous video, “What is the Novus Ordo Missae?” The New Mass was created after Vatican II, under the influence of Fr. Annibale Bugnini and Pope Paul VI, both of whom wanted a liturgy that was ecumenical and would not be a “stumbling block” to Protestants.
This goal was accomplished with the new liturgy by obscuring or even removing from its prayers the Catholic doctrines concerning the propitiatory nature of the Mass, the sacrificial and mediatory character of the priesthood, and the dogma of the Real Presence of Our Lord Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist.
It was these alarming theological deficiencies that caused Cardinals Ottaviani and Bacci to write in September 1969 to Pope Paul VI what was called the “Ottaviani Intervention.” In Part 6 we read: “It is evident that the Novus Ordo has no intention of presenting the Faith as taught by the Council of Trent, to which, …More

The Vatican is in damage-control mode after the Pope sent his blessings to a same-sex family

finance.yahoo.com/news/vatican-damage-…

Pardi also sent the Pope a package of children’s books about untraditional families from her publishing house, Lo Stampatello (link in Italian). Why do you have two moms?, as well as two of Pardi’s other books, have been banned from Venice’s Kindergarten libraries.

The Pope closes the letter with his “apostle’s blessing” (a special benediction), for Pardi, she said, “together with Ms Maria Silvia Fiengo”—her same-sex partner and the other mother of her four children.

Pardi and others in Italy’s LGBTQ community in Italy took the Pope’s message as a sign of acceptance: In particular, his saying her work is “at the service of young generations” and the fact that he imparted a blessing upon her and her same-sex partner.

So in the 1930's there were around 10 annulments granted worldwide. Then in the 60's that number rose to 300 or so. Today it is over 60,000 per year and that is not "merciful". A little clue here, there was a recent they were slow and deliberate it was a major deal. It is truly a site to behold to watch this guy finalize the destruction of the visible "physical" church with such ease.

Come weaklings defend your "Holy Father" with the Standard of the Church and Christ---can not do it can you---only in name and uniform and then use the real teachings so they are adulterate for a man that is a Modernist-- that is love of Christ. Can't do it --so hide behind the very teaching that will bring you to Hell unless you repent.

That is ONE line - I hope it is clear enough for you to answer.

As a Catholic I cannot take kindly and remain silent and unmoved by your sins against the Catholic faith; you are being incredulous, apostate, and schismatic on all grounds, namely by rejecting the Holy Father and leading people away from the Catholic Church.

Ben Martin, are you SSPX, SSPV, or Sedevacantist? Instead of holding on to the Catholic faith and living it out in holiness, you have abandoned the Bride of Christ and are doing what you say you are against.

Dr. John Smythe, The Holy Catholic Church has clarified the matter, His Holiness John Paul II made the grave error of the SSPX well know, the Supreme Pontiff Benedict XVI has published his clarification on the SSPX, and His Holiness Pope Francis pointed to his concern for reconciliation with SSPX just last week. The whole world seems to know what you cannot accept; that the SSPX are not members of the Holy Catholic Church.

Not only this, but the founders of the SSPX, Archbishop Lefebvre, declared to refuse to follow Rome; the former SSPX Bishop Williamson separated from the Catholic Church and from the SSPX and from reality, and was radical, and further fractured the Church opening other branches. These leaders of the SSPX are not heroes, or Catholic, they are its very antithesis; something which I can only deeply deplore, turning their backs on the Bride of Christ...

The SSPX seem fixed on meeting every gesture of reconciliation from the Catholic Church with apparent steps backward. They have long refused reconciliation and remain opposed to Church doctrines and the Second Vatican Council. What insolence it is on the part of the SSPX to treat the Catholic Church like a dishonest dealer, some of Her doctrines the SSPX accept, and others they reject! Men of good will can always find sufficient reason for believing, and men of bad will easily find reasons for not believing.

Ask yourself, instead of me, of Bishop Felley; Is Bishop Felley of the SSPX subject to Pope Francis and does he show Pope Francis obedience? Has Pope Francis given jurisdiction to Bishop Felley? The truth is that Bishop Felley and the SSPX decline submission to Pope Francis, nor have they jurisdiction, and the SSPX do not legitimately exercise any ministry in the Holy Catholic Church.

@Gregory - You still have not stated one clear iota of how the SSPX disbelieves "a single doctrine" of the Catholic Church.
You repeat, like an automaton, "[the SSPX] refuses to accept the complete doctrine of the Catholic Church". I ask, repeatedly, "what doctrine(s)? Please tell me. Please tell the exact doctrines." Yet, you will not (I believe (in the essence of "I believe" in the Creed) you …More
@Gregory - You still have not stated one clear iota of how the SSPX disbelieves "a single doctrine" of the Catholic Church.

You repeat, like an automaton, "[the SSPX] refuses to accept the complete doctrine of the Catholic Church". I ask, repeatedly, "what doctrine(s)? Please tell me. Please tell the exact doctrines." Yet, you will not (I believe (in the essence of "I believe" in the Creed) you cannot).

All you do is make claims like, "The questions you raise on the canonical status of the SSPX only ensure and prove the fact".

A question proves nothing. Not a thing. A question is just that, a question. It requires an answer to be complete. You have given no answer.

It is like you have convinced yourself that black is white!

You did make a factual statement with, "we must take care not to confuse faith in the Catholic Church with opinion" - yet you have given nothing but opinion. You need to contemplate your responses (or refusal, thereof). Make a list on paper with my question and then write below it your objectively true responses that prove your claim that "[the SSPX] refuses to accept the complete doctrine of the Catholic Church". Objective, not subjective.

If you come up with something that is objective - not unsupported opinion - but objectively proves the SSPX is, in fact, refusing the doctrine of the Church, you will have gone a great deal to convincing me of any error of supporting the SSPX (not to mention anyone else who reads what you respond).

However, if you just make unsupported statements that will just continue to show you do not have any objective evidence of the SSPX refusing the doctrine of the Church.

The ball is still in your court.

Dr. John Smythe, At last, many fail to attain the Catholic faith through pride, self-will, and thinking it is attained by a method; faith is a gift of God; and anyone who willfully disbelieves even a single doctrine of the Catholic Church has no true faith, for he receives some of the words of Christ and rejects others.

We must take care not to confuse faith in the Catholic Church with opinion; faith is for sure, opinion is not! Our Lord says, “Those who hunger and thirst after justice shall have their fill” (Matt. 5:6), God says through the prophet, “You shall find Me when you seek me with your whole heart” (Jer. 29:13).

Our Lady of Fatima says Pray the Rosary everyday! God bestows the knowledge of the truth on those who pray that they may find the truth.

@Gregory - in order to dialogue, one must answer the questions that are asked. Not just avoid them.
If there is no answer, that then needs to change the position of the person asked the questions not answered - that is a key element of the Socratic Method.More

For that is what the statement is against - liturgical abuses as clearly outlined by the Vatican. It was a sad day that the Vatican had to issue such a proclamation, in the first place. Yet, that is how widespread such abuses have become; and you defend them?!

Especially after attempting to bemoan some type of imaginary attack against you (which were merely questions asking you to provide evidence for your implausible statements). But hey, if you are trying to take the attention away from your lack of substance and refusal to even give a shadow of a doubt to the truth. It's not working.

You need to remember Matthew 5:37.

As for Freud, why you would even openly write in support of such an anti-Catholic is beyond me.

As for V2 - nice try for mistruths - the SSPX does acknowledge and recognize it (sspx.org/en/search/node/vatican 2).
