Bishop Meier: “No church has owned the truth for itself”

@Luke 817 I apologize. I evidently posted the original comment in the wrong place. I was addressing the piece on Bishop Meier (which is presently the one above this article).

Bishop Meier: “No church has owned the truth for itself”

I'm "Gaslighting"? Are you well? I'm trying to point out that we've been "gaslit" by the past 60 years. I'm a supported of both +Lefebvre and the SSPX.

Does this site remove posts (like mine and one other)? If that's the case, why bother with opening the Combox?

Bishop Meier: “No church has owned the truth for itself”

Joseph Ratzinger in an interview published in the German newspaper, Frankfurter Allgemine (1990s): "Vatican II did not use Pius XII’s expression according to which ‘the Roman Catholic Church is the only Church of Christ.’ Instead, it preferred the expression ‘The Church of Christ subsists in the Catholic Church...’ because," he said, "it wished to ‘affirm that the being of the Church as such …More

That Bishop was raised in the counterfeit church designed at Vatican II by the Montinis, Wojtylas and the Ratzingers. It's what they've been taught. It's all they know. (They could know more, but most of them are rather dull blades.)

Glimmers of hope from Fennimore, Wisconsin

The "accidents" convey the transcendent. The "substance" is a Mass banally deficient in the notion of sacrifice. 'Kinda like transubstantiation turned upside down.

Cardinal McElroy: Synod could end link between diaconate and priesthood to allow 'female deacons' - …

$10 to a donut that McElroy has never heard of the Council of Trent (and he'd require a translator for "anathema sit").

21 Coptic Martyrs: Modern Heroes for Christ || SW NEWS

I admire them. I pray for them. I hope for their salvation. But are we looking at this from man's perspective or God's? I quote one who is among the greatest graced intellects in the history of the Church: Saint Augustine: “No man can find salvation except in the Catholic Church. Outside the Catholic Church one can have everything except salvation. One can have honor, one can have the sacraments …More

Outside the Catholic Church one can have everything except salvation. One can have honor, one can have the sacraments, one can sing alleluia, one can answer amen, one can have faith in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost, and preach it too, but never can one find salvation except in the Catholic Church.” (Sermo ad Caesariensis Ecclesia plebem)

Official statement of the Austin Latin Mass community

We provided a great counterexample to the "standoffish Trad" stereotype.
Yep: appeasing the post-Conciliar counterfeit church achieves - every time - actually what it achieved for you. Bupkis.More

Bishop Strickland condemns E. Michael Jones as an Antisemite

How about condemning those Conciliar heretics who promote their "Dual Covenant" position vis-a-vis the Jews? How about condemning Joseph Ratzinger's outrage of stating that the Church has no mission to the Jews? I wish people would cease idolizing this man. He's a Catholic in some things, but a Modernist in others. That means (according to Pope St. Pius X) he's a Modernist heretic.

Cardinal Müller: Francis Has Relapsed into Paganism

Why do we never hear from post-Conciliar hierarchs the key traditional response to the excuse of human weakness for sin: Romans 5.20? "And where sin abounded, grace did more abound."

French Bishop: European Bishops Are Mute Dogs

The Novus Ordo Missae isn't a liturgical treasure. Maybe the Bishop can begin there with his education of young people. Also his statement about the "ideological wars that animated their elders" comment is disingenuous in the extreme. The Ecclesial War of the past 60 years is not "ideological" in nature: it is about the recovery of the very nature of the Church and its relationship with a fallen …More

Weinandy: Francis Even Worse Than Bad Popes of the Past

@Orthocat Well said - except for your last sentence. Every Pope connected with the Council (62-65) has failed to hand on the Faith untainted.
