Do You Know?
How Can I Determine the Difference Between:
REAL     Catholic Priests and Bishops?
FAKECatholicPriests and Bishops?



“Truth knows no distinction of persons.  Therefore, he who speaks [verbally; in writing] the Truth is invincible, dispute with whom he may.” (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., [b. 1225 A.D. in Rocca Secca, Naples, Italy - d. Wednesday, March 7, 1274 A.D., in Fossa Nuova, Italy], Doctor of the Church, Commentary on Job, Chapter 13, Lesson 2; emphasis added.)



“Do not heed BY WHOM a thing is said, BUT rather WHAT IS SAID.”
(Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., Letter to Brother John; emphasis added.)
Knowledge
It is of the greatest importance that in order to gain assured knowledge of things, to rely on exact acquaintance with facts, rather than on the uncertain testimony of public rumor; and then what we have proved for certain we may proclaim without hesitation. 

(Saint Bernard of Clairvaux  [b. Castle Fontaines, near Dijon, France in 1090 A.D. - d. at Clairvaux, France on Friday, August 21, 1153 A.D.], Abbot of Clairvaux, Doctor of the Church, Doctor of the Church, Oracle of the 12th Century, Mellifluous [soothing sound] Doctor, Probable Author of the very popular Memorare Prayer; Letters)..

Proper Preparaton

Before reading this, IF you have not done so already, it is prayerfully suggested that you read and use the entire brief proper procedure for Reader’s to use which is at:   Proper Preparation Before Reading.

WHY should you take the time from your very busy schedule to do this?

Because, as Patriarch Saint John Chrysostom teaches:

UNLESS God the Holy Ghost prepares the mind and the heart of the Writer, and of the Reader, the Writer writes in vain, and the Reader reads in vain.
Concerning the Writer:  We always properly prepare Ourself before writing, not only using the standard brief procedure which is at   Proper Preparation Before Reading,  but We also include this intention in Our Masses, in Our Reception of the Sacrament of the Most Holy Eucharist, in Our Spiritual Communions, and also in Our Rosaries and other Prayers.

Concerning the Reader:  It is an Act of the Virtue of Humility to properly prepare oneself before reading.  To do otherwise is really a sin of pride which can sometimes become a source of confusion or otherwise result in a waste of time.


Semper Paratus - Always Prepared

Mindful of the need of “being ready always to satisfy every one that asketh you a reason of that Hope which is in you” (1 Peter 3:15), by the Most Holy Will and Grace of God, We continue to fulfill Our Sacred duties and obligations of Preaching and Teaching the Truth, and to “never believe, nor understand, anything other than the absolute and unchangeable Truth preached from the beginning by the Apostles” (Oath Against Modernism), We hereby provide links to various important web pages which contain some important historical facts, in addition to certain Unchangeable Dogmatic Truths which all Catholics should know and practice in their lives, IF they are REAL Catholics, because We can not remain silent, mindful of this sterling example of Saint Pius X:

“These latter days have witnessed a notable increase in the number of the enemies of the Cross of Christ, who, by arts entirely new and full of deceit, are striving to destroy the vital energy of the Church, and, as far as in them lies, utterly to subvert the very Kingdom of Christ. Wherefore,  We may no longer keep silence, lest We should seem to fail in Our most Sacred Duty, and lest the kindness that, in the hope of wiser counsels, We have hitherto shown them, should be set down to lack of diligence in the discharge of Our Office.” (Infallible Roman Catholic Pope Saint Pius X, Giuseppe Sarto [Tuesday, August 4, 1903 - Thursday, August 20, 1914], using his Infallible Ordinary Magisterium, Promulgated his Infallible Encyclical Pascendi Dominici Gregis, On the Doctrine of the Modernists, which condemns the Heresies of Modernism and the NEW Theology Heresies, Sunday, September 8, 1907, ¶ 1; emphasis added.)
Only two months and ten days later, this same Holy Pope excommunicated all Heretics, including the Modernist Heretics and the NEW Theology Heretics, in Præstantia Scripturæ Sacræ, Monday, November 18, 1907 A.D.

Despite this, the automatically excommunicated Freemasonic Infiltrator, Mr. Angelo Giuseppe Roncalli [Tuesday, October 28, 1958 - Monday, June 3, 1963], alias Mr. 2nd John 23rd, invited automatically excommunicated Modernist Heretics, and automatically excommunicated NEW Theology Theologian Heretics, to Synod Vatican 2, where these automatically excommunicated Heretics took an active role with the "blessings" of MR. Roncalli, a.k.a. 2nd John 23rd and MR. Montini, a.k.a. Paul 6.

It is no wonder, then, that Catholics, who really know what the unchangeable Truths of the Catholic Faith actually are, can easily recognize the heretical fruits of the anti-Catholic Synod Vatican 2, including all of anti-Catholic Synod Vatican 2's heretical, apostate, and anti-Catholic, changes to the unchangeable Catholic Traditional Faith, Mass, and Sacraments.

Such heretical and anti-Catholic documents were promulgated by the automatically excommunicated Modernist Heretic, NEW Theology Theologian Heretic, and Apostate from the Roman Catholic Church, and self-admitted Communist Infiltrator, MR. Giovanni Battista Enrico Antonio Maria Montini [b. at Concesio, Italy on Sunday, September 26, 1897; Pope:  Friday, June 21, 1963 - d. at Castel Gandolfo, Italy on Sunday, August 6, 1978], alias MR. Paul 6.

Therefore, We may no longer keep silence, lest We should seem to fail in Our most Sacred Duty which REQUIRES that We publicly speak against these subtle heresies, mindful that “Whenever it becomes necessary to expose statements which disguise some suspected error or danger under the veil of ambiguity, one must denounce the perverse meaning under which the error opposed to Catholic Truth is camouflaged.” (Pope Pius VI, Giovanni Angelo Braschi [Wednesday, February 15, 1775 - Thursday, August 29, 1799], using his Infallible Ordinary Magisterium, Promulgated his Encyclical “Auctorem Fidei,” Thursday, August 28, 1794, ¶ 6; emphasis added).



Wasting Our Time

Some people think We waste Our time by writing about these unchangeable Truths.

On the contrary, We emphasize:  Truth, per se, contrary to the evolution - blatant continual changes - heresy  of the  automatically excommunicated Modernist Heretics and the automatically excommunicated NEW Theology Theologian Heretics and Apostates from the Roman Catholic Church,   is in fact unchangeable because “God is Truth” (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., [b. 1225 A.D. in Rocca Secca, Naples, Italy - d. Wednesday, March 7, 1274 A.D., in Fossa Nuova, Italy], Doctor of the Church, “Summa Theologica”, Part I, Question 16, Article 5; “Summa Theologica”, Part II-II, Question 93, Article 2, Reply to Objection 2. “Summa Contra Gentiles”, Book I, Chapter 60), and, because by nature and by definition, “Truth cannot be Truth’s contrary”  (“Summa Contra Gentiles”, Book V, Chapter 8), and also because “Every Truth without exception, and whoever may utter it, is from the Holy Ghost”  (“Summa Theologica”, Part I-II, Question 109, Article 1, Reply to Objection 1); emphasis added.

Furthermore, because ultimately, God does not change as He, Himself, testifies:   “I am the Lord and I change not” (Malachias 3:6), so, therefore, “Be not led away with various and strange doctrines.  Jesus Christ yesterday, and today, and the same forever” (Hebrews 13:8-9) since “With the Father of light there is no change nor shadow of alteration”  (James 1:17), to which the Hammer Against Heretics testifies:

But God’s Word is one and the same and, as it is written: The Word of our Lord endureth forever [Isaias 40:8] unchanged, not before or after another, but existing the same always.  For it was fitting, whereas God is One, that His Image should be One also, and His Word One and One His Wisdom.” (Patriarch Saint Athanasius [b. Alexandria, Egypt 296 A.D. - d. Alexandria, Egypt on Wednesday, May 2, 373A.D.], Patriarch of Alexandria, Egypt, Father of Orthodoxy in the Catholic Church, Four Discourses Against the Arians, Discourse II, Chapter XVII, Introduction to Proverbs viii. 22, Continued, ¶ 36; emphasis added).
Writing about certain unchangeable Truths is actually part of Our Job Description, found in the Solemn, Sacred Oath We first took many, many years ago, and have renewed at every Clergy Conference held over the years which are attended by Our Brother Catholic Traditional Prelates and Priests, in which We state, among other things:
I [state your name], firmly accept and embrace each and every doctrine defined by the Church’s unerring teaching authority and all that she has maintained and declared, especially those points of doctrine which are directly opposed to the errors [Heresy of Modernism] of our time....

“Fourthly, I sincerely hold that the doctrine of faith was handed down to us from the Apostles through the officially approved Fathers, in exactly the same sense and with always the same meaning.  And, therefore, I completely reject the heretical notion that dogmas evolve and change from one meaning to another different from the one meaning which the Church held from the beginning.  I likewise condemn every erroneous notion according to which, instead of the Divine Deposit of Faith entrusted by Christ to His spouse, the Church, and to be faithfully guarded by Her, one may substitute a philosophical system or a creation of the human mind gradually refined by human effort and capable of continual and indefinite development....

I submit to and fully uphold all of the condemnations, declarations and the prescripts contained in the encyclical letter PASCENDI and in the decree LAMENTABILI...

“Finally, I profess that I am completely opposed to the error of the Modernists who hold that there is nothing inherently Divine in Sacred Tradition; or who-which is far worse-admit it in a pantheistic sense.  For them, there would remain only a bare simple fact, like the ordinary facts of history, to the effect that the system begun by Christ and His Apostles still find men to support it by their energy, skill and ability; therefore, I most firmly retain and will retain to my last breath the Faith of the Fathers of the Church, which has the supernatural guarantee of Truth,...

And this is not to be understood that we may hold what seems better suited to the culture of a particular age, but rather that we may never believe nor understand anything other than the absolute and unchangeable Truth preached from the beginning by the Apostles.

All this I promise to keep faithfully, entirely and sincerely and to guard them inviolately and never to depart from them in any way in teaching, word or in writing.  Thus I promise, thus I swear, so help me God and His Holy Gospels.”

(Pope Saint Pius X, Giuseppe Melchiorre Sarto [b. at Riese, Lombardy-Venetia, Austrian Empire on Tuesday, June 2, 1835; Pope: Tuesday, August 4, 1903 - Thursday, August 20, 1914], Papal Motu Proprio [On His Own Initiative], “Sacrorum Antistitum” - “The Oath Against Modernism”, Thursday, September 1, 1910, AAS - “Acta Apostolica Sedis” - Acts of the Apostolic See, 2-655; “Fontes”, n. 689, Volume III, page 774; emphasis added.)



How often We are asked:
Why did you write such and such?
Likewise, We are attacked for some of the Truths about which We write because certain people refuse to accept these Truths, remembering that every Truth is unchangeable, yet, ironically, some of them unknowingly embracethe Modernist Heresy   without a whimper merely because acertain Roman-Collared Layman, invalidly and illegally ordained a deacon, priest, or bishop with the new 1968 anti-Catholic rite  said whatever, or required compliance under the guise of false obedience!

These attacks then give others an excuse to ask Us:

Why do you bother to write anything when you know that there are people who will refuse to accept the Truths about which you write?
We respond with this wise and prudent counsel:

Cease labouring in vain and sowing upon rock many have been saying to me. But I hearkened to none of them.  For there is hope, I said to myself, that, God willing, my letter will accomplish something. But if that which We deprecate should take place, We shall at least have the advantage of escaping self reproach for keeping silence, and We shall not be worse than sailors on the sea, who, when they behold men of their own craft drifting on a plank, because their ship has been broken to pieces by the winds and waves, take down their sails, and cast anchor, and get into a boat and try to rescue the men, although strangers, known to them only in consequence of their calamity.

But if the others were unwilling to be rescued, no one would accuse those of their destruction who attempted to save them. This is what We offerbut We trust that, by the Grace of God, YOU also will do your part”.  (Patriarch Saint John Chrysostom [b. Antioch, c. 347 A.D. - d. at Commana in Pontus on Friday, September 14, 407 A.D.], Patriarch of Constantinople [Thursday, February 26, 398 A.D. - Thursday, June 24, 404 A.D.], exiled from his See the 2nd time on Thursday, June 24, 404 A.D., Father and Doctor of the Catholic Church, “Treatise on the Priesthood,” Book I, An Exhortation to Theodoret after His Fall, Letter II, ¶ 5; emphasis added).



To Modernist and NEW Theology Heretical Innovators
To Those Who Use the NEW anti-Catholic Liturgical Books:
The 1968 and Later Editions of the Roman Pontifical
The 1960 and Later Editions of the Roman Missal
(Plus the Other Liturgical Books that Are Changed)

How Do YOU Intend to Escape the Judgement of God?



To Modernist, and NEW Theology, Heretical Innovators
To Catholic Priests and Bishops Who Use the
1960, and Later, Changes to the Liturgical Books.

Today, More and More Roman-Collared LAYMEN
Are Leaving their Parishes Because They Now Realize that
None of them Have any Spiritual and Sacramental Power
To Offer Mass and to Administer the Sacraments!

Roman-Collared LAYMEN also have the very real and terrible fear they will go to Hell because their fake and phony “sacraments” never had any power to prevent the Souls of their trusting Parishioners from going to Hell because these fake and phony priests and bishops have never had any power to Absolve from any sins, including Mortal Sins!

It’s True! I’m leaving!

They lied about my “ordination”The 1968 Roman Pontifical, with which I was “ordained”,  IS NOT    VALID!  So, I am only a LAYMANNOT a Priest  I can no longer live this LIE of    invalid    “masses” and   invalidx “sacraments”!  

How many are burning in Hell because I have no power to “Offer Holy Mass”, and to “forgive Mortal Sins”!

Likewise, Roman-Collared LAYMEN, "ordained" with the 1968, or later editions of, the Roman Pontifical, who think and act as though they really are priests and bishops and popes. are NOT able to Offer a lawful and valid   Catholic Traditional Mass as it was before 1944 in the Roman Catholic Church, nor can they Administer any Sacraments of the Roman Catholic Church for the same reason - because of the immutable law of   Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi   -  which means ALL Roman-Collared LAYMEN, "ordained" with the 1968, or later editions of, the Roman Pontifical, ARE de facto members, NOT of the Roman Catholic Church, but of the NEW World Order of anti-Christ's Satanicx Synod Vatican 2 pseudo-church.

This also means that many Souls of faithful, sincere, trusting, but ignorant Catholics, have gone to Hell because of the  illegal and  invalid pseudo-masses of these Roman-Collared LAYMEN,

(which deprived the Souls of faithful, sincere, trusting, but ignorant Catholics, of Sanctifying Grace  by which  to desire to obtain Absolution for their Mortal Sins in the Roman Catholic Sacrament of Penance)
and the illegal and invalid  pseudo-sacraments of these Roman-Collared LAYMEN, such as the per se invalid  and  illegal "rite of reconciliation" found in the NEW World Order of anti-Christ's   Satanicx Synod Vatican 2 pseudo-churches.

Especially sad are the Souls in Hell whose Mortal Sins were unable to be absolved in the Roman Catholic Sacrament of Penance

(N.B.:  The anti-Catholic, NEW World Order of anti-Christ's Satanic     Synod Vatican 2 pseudo-churchs'  "rite of reconciliation" is NOT a Sacrament, but a blatant demonic lie and deception!),
before their deaths, because such Roman-Collared LAYMEN have no Power of any kind:  1) to Offer any Masses; and, 2) to Administer any Sacraments, including the Roman Catholic Sacrament of Penance.
................................................................................................................

So tell me, “Catholic to the Core”, WHY do You:

1) Send your children to a “catholic school” that teaches them the Heresies of Modernism & the NEW Theology?

2) Go to a “catholic church” that uses a 16th Century PROTESTANTMemorial Supper Mealmass”?

3) Made up on a  PROTESTANT Supper TABLE?

4) By mostly invalidlyordainedLAYMEN  who wrongly think they are real: priests; or, bishops; or, cardinals; or, even a pope?!!!

FACT: Your “core” is really “ANTI-Catholic”!!!!!!!


pastors formed by Hell!




Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi

The Theological Axiom of Roman Catholic Theology, and the Legal Principle of Roman Catholic Liturgical Law, for this was first enunciated by Pope Celestine I [Saturday, September 10, 422  - Tuesday, July 27, 432 ] who taught this Theological Axiom of Roman Catholic Theology, and this Legal Principle of Roman Catholic Liturgical Law, in this Official Term:  Legem Credendi Lex Statuit Supplicandi  [The Liturgical form of prayer becomes the standard of Faith.], which sometimes is shortened to simply Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi: The Law of Praying is the Law of Believing.

This simply means that a Roman Catholic expresses, by a public, exterior liturgical act of worship, the personal interior beliefs of the Roman Catholic Faith, and which beliefs are, at least in general, consistent with the Official Dogmatic Doctrines of the Roman Catholic Church on this subject which forbid changes, such as those which have been Officially taught by the Infallible Œcumenical Council of Florence - The Seventeenth Œcumenical Council, The First Council of Basel, Ferrara, Florence [Monday, April 9, 1438 A.D. - Thursday, August 7, 1445 A.D.], Session 11, Friday, February 4, 1442, with Pope Eugene IV, Cantate Domino, and by the Infallible Œcumenical Council of Trent, including the Infallible Doctrine on the Sacrifice of the Mass, Session 22, Monday, September 17, 1562, Being the Sixth Under the Sovereign Pontiff, Pius IV.

Also, those Dogmatic teachings by a number of Infallible Roman Catholic Popes, especially by Pope Eugene IV, Gabriele Condulmer [Thursday, March 3, 1431 - Tuesday, February 23, 1447], Infallible Papal Bulla, Cantate Domino, Friday, February 4, 1442; by Pope Pius IV, Giovan Angelo De Medici, [Friday, December 25, 1559 - Thursday, December 9, 1565], with the Council of Trent, the Infallible Doctrine on the Sacrifice of the Mass, Session 22, Monday, September 17, 1562; by Pope Saint Pius V, Antonio-Michele Ghislieri [Friday, January 7, 1566 - Monday, May 1, 1572], Infallible Papal Bulla Quo Primum Tempore, Tuesday, July 14, 1570; and, by Pope Benedict XV, Giacomo Della Chiesa [Thursday, September 3, 1914 - Saturday, January 21, 1922], Encyclical - Ad Beatissimi Apostolorum Principis, Sunday, November 1, 1914, ¶ 25; AAS VI [1914], 578.).



PRETEND  POPES:

.

Did the Synod Vatican 2 “popes” take
the Oath of Office to become a REAL Pope?  
IF “NO”: THEY NEVER WERE A “POPE”!

http://www.traditionalcatholicmass.com/home-m15.html

IF “YES”, they AUTOMATICALLY  EXCOMMUNICATED THEMSELVES because:  

“Oath of Pope-Elect”:  

“I VOW: TO CHANGE NOTHING OF..TRADITION... or to permit any INNOVATION... We subject to SEVEREST EXCOMMUNICATION anyone - BE IT OURSELF  or be it another - who would... undertake anything NEW... OR WOULD SEEK TO CHANGE ANYTHING.” (Emphasis added.)
NOTEThis also means that the excuse"They make the rules, so they can change the rules" is totally falseTHEY have no power to make any rules, just as THEY have no power to change any rules - IF they try doing this, they become  automatically excommunicated!

Session 11, Friday, February 4, 1442

However, since no explanation was given in the aforesaid Decree of the Armenians in respect of the Form of words which the Holy Roman Church, relying on the teaching and authority of the Apostles Peter and Paul, has always been wont to use in the Consecration of the Lord’s Body and Blood, We concluded that it should be inserted in this present text.

It uses this Form of words in the Consecration of the Lord’s Body:

For this is My Body’.
(Latin: Hoc est enim Corpus Meum.)
And [It uses this Form of words in the Consecration] of His Blood:
‘For this is the Chalice of My Blood, of the New and Everlasting Covenant; the Mystery of Faith, which will be shed for you and for many unto the remission of sins’.
(Latin: Hic est enim calix Sanguinis Mei, Novi et Æterni  Testamenti;  Mysterium Fidei, qui pro vobis et pro multis effundetur in remissionem peccatorum.)

An Infallible Papal Bulla
of

The Infallible Roman Catholic Pope Saint Pius V
Antonio-Michele Ghislieri
[Friday, January 7, 1566 - Monday, May 1, 1572]

This Papal Bulla, decreed by Pope Saint Pius V in ratifying the Roman Catholic Council of Trent, reaffirmed the serious sin of omitting or changing the Form for the Double Consecration. Hence, the Infallibility of the Roman Catholic Council of Trent, and Pope Saint Pius V, prove, beyond any doubts, that the so-called Novus Ordo Missae is per se invalid and unlawful in all languages, including Latin.

In the Canon of the Mass of the Missale Romanum of Pope Saint Pius V, issued on Tuesday, July 14, 1570 A.D., is to be found these texts to be used for the Transubstantiation - the same exact Form of Words as Infallibly Decreed by Pope Eugene IV's Papal Bulla of Union with the Copts, with the Infallible Œcumenical Council of Florence, Session 11, Friday, February 4, 1442:

Hoc est enim Corpus Meum.

Hic est enim calix Sanguinis Mei, Novi et Æterni  Testamenti;  Mysterium Fidei, qui pro vobis et pro multis effundetur in remissionem peccatorum.

For the record, this same exact Form of Words for the Double Consecration is also in the pre-1944 Missale Romanum, Canon of the Mass.

The penalty, or censure, for non-compliance (disobedience) is anathema.




NOVUS ORDO RITE
a.k.a.
NOVUS ORDO MISSÆ

Illegal & Invalid anti-Traditional mess/mass book of the
anti-Catholic NEW World Order of the anti-Christ
Satanic Synod Vatican 2 pseudo-church
of automatically excommunicated clones of the anti-Christ,
including automatically excommunicated Modernist Heretics,
automatically excommunicated NEW Theology Theologian Heretics,
and automatically excommunicated Apostates,
who were also automatically excommunicated Innovators,
and automatically excommunicated clones of the anti-Christ Infiltrators,
including, but not limited to,
Communists, Freemasons, Illuminati, Fifth Column, etc., etc.

Consecration of the Body:

Accipite et Manducate ex Hoc Omnes:  Hoc Est Enim Corpus Meum, Quo Pro Vobis Tradetur.
Consecration of the Blood:
Accipite et Bibite ex Eo Omnes:  Hic Est Enim Calix Sanguinis Mei Novi et Æterni Testamenti, Qui Pro Vobis et Pro Multis Effundetur in Remissionem Peccatorum. Hoc Facite in Meam Commemorationem.
Note:

Paul 6 actually admitted that he himself changed the Infallible Form:

“For PASTORAL REASONS, however, and to facilitate concelebration, we have directed that the words of the Lord be identical in each form of the can [i.e. Eucharistic Prayers #1, #2, #3, and #4].  Thus, in each eucharistic prayer, we WISH that the words be as follows:  over the bread:  Accipite et Manducate ex Hoc Omnes:  Hoc Est Enim Corpus Meum, Quod Pro Vobis Tradetur; over the chalice:  Accipite et Bibite ex Eo Omnes:  Hic Est Enim Calix Sanguinis Mei Novi et Æterni Testamenti, Qui Pro Vobis et Pro Multis Effundetur in Remissionem Peccatorum.  Hoc Facite in Meam Commemorationem.  The words Mysterium Fidei, NOW TAKEN OUT OF THE CONTEXT OF THE WORDS OF CHRIST, are said by the priest as an introduction to the acclamation of the faithful.”  (Pope Paul VI, Missalis Romani, Thursday, April 3, 1969 A.D., ¶ 6; emphasis added.)


ANTI-Christ cross-bearer
DESTROYED the FORM for
TRANSUBSTANTIATION!

No Transubstantiation
Means
NO REAL MASS!

Mysterium Fidei denotes the act of Transubstantiation.  Therefore, P-6 is saying there is no Transubstantiation in his innovated, mutilated heretical formNo Transubstantiation = no Mass!

Therefore, P-6 was automatically excommunicated from the Roman Catholic Church for his NEW Theology Heresy by the Infallible Œcumenical Roman Catholic Councils (Florence & Trent) and by two Infallible Papal Bullae of two Roman Catholic Popes (Eugene IV & Saint Pius V).

How Can I Determine the Difference Between
REAL     Catholic Priests and Bishops and  FAKE  Catholic Priests and Bishops?

The basic answer is very simple.

The actual difference between  REALCatholic Priests and Bishops and  FAKECatholic Priests and Bishops is the fact that:

1.  REAL   Catholic Priests have  VALIDLY    received the Sacrament of the Priesthood, just as   REAL    Catholic Bishops have  VALIDLY   received the Sacrament of the Episcopacy.

2.  FAKE    Catholic Priests have either:  a)  invalidly; or, b) NEVER;  received the Sacrament of the Priesthood, just as FAKE    Catholic Bishops have either:  a)  invalidly; or, b) NEVER;  received the Sacrament of the Episcopacy.

In other words, these are basic  Catholic Traditional theological and liturgical issues  which involve the unchangeable Dogmatic Doctrines of the Roman Catholic Church which the lawful Ecclesiastical Magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church has historically officially taught in some of her Doctrinal Councils up to and including most especially the Council of Trent, and up to and including most especially Pope Saint Pius X, and even more recently, Pope Pius XII.
Among other Catholic Traditional theological and liturgical Dogmatic principles and axioms, We have applied the Catholic Traditional theological and liturgical Dogmatic principle of Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi, a.k.a. Legem Credendi Lex Statuit Supplicandi   to some of the doctrinal theological and liturgical errors and heresies of that disfunctional, erratic, unstable, liturgically, ecclesiastically, and theologically unsound    SatanicSynod Vatican 2 church   -   the church of the Heretical Modernist changes of the changes of the never ending changes, a.k.a. EVOLUTION!

We have also explained that  the 1968 version of the NEW Roman Pontifical    of the   SatanicSynod Vatican 2 church     was made up by  automatically excommunicated Modernist Heretics    and by  automatically excommunicated NEW Theology Theologian Heretics,  which anti-Catholic Innovators     and  anti-Catholic Infiltrators     obviously wanted to use to totally destroy the Catholic Traditional Mass by making sure that future priests and bishops would be only laymen,  hence, one example of  Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi, a.k.a. Legem Credendi Lex Statuit Supplicandi,   which We have proven in part by the examination and comparison of the NEW with the Old,   so that, in effect, the NEW has produced only virtual actors wearing the vestments of priests and bishops, with no Sacramental Priestly/Episcopal Powers of any kind, not only to administer any Sacrament, but also with no Priestly Powers to offer a   Valid      Mass.

Thus came about Tolle Missam, Tolle Ecclesiam: take away the Mass, take away the Church; i.e. when you destroy the Catholic Traditional Mass, you automatically destroy the Catholic Church!

This is exactly what the Satanic clones of anti-Christ did who DESTROYED the Sacrament of the Episcopacy in 1968 with their  FAKEandinvalidRoman Pontifical  because the Catholic Traditional Sacrament of the Episcopacy had to be destroyed BEFORE the Innovators (anti-Catholic Infiltrators; Modernist Heretics; NEW Theology Theologian Heretics) could effectively and totally destroy the Catholic Traditional Mass, which would result in the ultimate destruction of the Catholic Church:  Tolle Missam, Tolle Ecclesiam.
Although many Catholic Traditional authors have focused on the destruction of the Catholic Traditional Mass by the NEW mass, the NOR - Novus Ordo Rite, a.k.a. Novus Ordo Missae, which the heretic and apostate, P-6 made effective the first Sunday of Advent in 1969, the ultimate more deadly weapon to totally destroy the Catholic Traditional Mass, and thus the Catholic Church, was the 1968 Roman Pontifical which destroyed the Catholic Traditional Sacrament of the Episcopacy!
These two Satanic anti-Christ liturgical books of 1968 and 1969 are two examples of the rotten fruits of the Heresy of Modernism and the Heresy of the NEW Theology Theologians, vis-à-vis an heretical, anti-Catholic:  Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi, a.k.a. Legem Credendi Lex Statuit Supplicandi    -  demonically intended and inspired by the Satanic clones of anti-Christ to ultimately destroy the Catholic Church:  Tolle Missam, Tolle Ecclesiam.

Those Who NEVER Received the
Sacrament of the Priesthood and/or of the Episcopacy

It is self-evident that a person who has NEVER received the Sacrament of the Priesthood and/or who has NEVER received the Sacrament of the Episcopacy, is one, or several, of the following:

a)  an actor
b)  a fake
c)  a fantasizer
d)  a fraud
e)  an hallucinator
f)  ignorant
g)  an imposter
h)  insane
i)  mistaken
j)  non compos mentis - not of sound mind
k)  a phony
l)  a player
m)  a pretender
Although some people can be very convincing actors, frauds, imposters, etc., those who have some form of mental illness, or who are on some kind of drugs, are usually very easily recognized.

But most actors and other types of frauds, imposters, etc., have their limitations, and can usually be revealed by asking them various questions, the answers to which, usually, REAL   Catholic Priests and  REAL   Catholic Bishops should know.

IF someone deliberately changes the entire subject, with the obvious intention of not answering your question(s), that person is at least suspect in terms of being an actor, an imposter, someone who is ignorant, or someone similar.

Our primary focus on this web page is not about actors, imposters, frauds, per se, whether professional or amateurs, and people like them, but rather Our concern is about   FAKE   Catholic Priests who have   invalidly   received the Sacrament of the Priesthood, and   FAKE   Catholic Bishops have   invalidly    received the Sacrament of the Episcopacy during some kind of one or more actual liturgical ceremonies which are claimed to be   Valid       Catholic liturgical Sacramental ceremonies.

Therefore, only within this context:

Everything really depends on the issues of  LITURGICAL  and SACRAMENTAL  validity      and   invalidity.
In other words:
1.  REAL  Catholic Priests and   REAL Catholic Bishops are   Valid   : LITURGICALLY and SACRAMENTALLY.

2.  FAKE   Catholic Priests and   FAKE  Catholic Bishops are   invalid   : LITURGICALLY and SACRAMENTALLY.

The original question now becomes an even more simple, practical question:
How Can I Determine Which Catholic Prelates Are NOT  REAL, VALID  Catholic Prelates?
However, before these four questions can be correctly answered, a brief review of certain basics is necessary:
Part One - That Which Makes a Sacrament a VALID Sacrament

Part Two - The Sacrament of the Episcopacy

Part Three - That Which Makes the Sacrament of the Episcopacy A  REAL,  TRUE, and VALID Sacrament



Part One
That Which Makes a Sacrament a  ValidSacrament




A Brief Summary of the  Essenceof a Sacrament

The  essence  of a thing is that which makes a thing to be what it is without which it is not that specific thing (its sine qua non), but rather something else, irregardless how similar it is to anything else.

Jesus Christ, the Eternal High Priest, perfectly instituted the   essence,  not only of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, but also of each of the Seven Sacraments, including the Sacrament of Holy Orders.

Why was this necessary?

The answer is:



Since, therefore, the sanctification of man is in the power of God Who sanctifies, it is not for man to decide what things should be used for his sanctification, but this is determined by Divine institution” (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., [b. 1225 A.D. in Rocca Secca, Naples, Italy - d. Wednesday, March 7, 1274 A.D., in Fossa Nuova, Italy], Doctor of the Church, Summa Theologica, Part III, Question 60, Article 5, Body).

Therefore:

“...those things that are essential to the Sacrament are instituted by Christ Himself, Who is God and man.  And though they are not all handed down by the Scriptures, yet the Church holds them from the intimate Tradition of the Apostles [i.e. Authentic Apostolic Tradition], according to the saying of the Apostle (1 Cor. 11:34):  `The rest I will set in order when I come.’”  (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., Summa Theologica, Part III, Question 64, Article 2, Reply to Objection 1).
Note:  The Sacrament to which Saint Thomas refers in this quote is the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist.  However, because all of the Sacraments were instituted by Christ Himself, certain things are  true    of all of the Sacraments because, by their nature, by their ontological essence, as Sacraments per se, i.e. as Sacraments in general, all Sacraments are identical with each other.  The technical term for this is called the  genus    of the Sacraments.

For example, part of the   genus     of all of the Sacraments is that all of the Sacraments have, in general, not only the fact that all of them were instituted by the Eternal High Priest, God the Son, Jesus Christ, but also all of them have the:

Proper Determinate Preparations

Proper Determinate Administrator

Proper Determinate Matter

Proper Determinate Form of Words

Proper Determinate Intention

Proper Determinate Context

and all of the Sacraments also require the:
Proper Serious Use of the Rite of the Sacrament

Proper Serious Recipient of the Sacrament

Proper Determinate Intention of the Recipient of the Sacrament

although the specific Proper Determinate: Preparations, Administrator, Matter, Form, Intention, and Context of each individual Sacrament - is totally different, each one from all of the others.

Consider the case of a family with seven children.  All of the seven children have certain things in common with each other,  which would be classified as the    genus,   such as the same biological parents, but each one of the seven children is also an unique individual, each one of whom differs from all of the other siblings.

In the Pastoral Ministry, whenever Priests and Prelates have any real doubts, or serious concerns, about the validity     of any Sacrament, or about a specific Rite to be used in the Administration of any Sacrament, as, for example, in the case regarding a question concerning the  validity       of the many different Baptismal Rites of Heretics, and since it can not always be known with certainty exactly whether or not the   Proper Determinate Preparations,   Proper Determinate Administrator,    Proper Determinate Matter,    Proper Determinate Form of Words,    Proper Determinate Intention,  and   Proper Determinate Contextwere used in the many different Baptismal Rites of Heretics by their respective non-Catholic ministers, Roman Catholic Priests and Roman Catholic Prelates must always err on the side of certainty because:
“In conferring the Sacraments, as also in the Consecration in the Mass, it is never allowed to adopt a probable course of action as to   validityand to abandon the safer course. The contrary was explicitly condemned by Pope Innocent XI [1670  - 1676].  To do so would be a grievous sin against Religion, namely an act of irreverence toward what Christ Our Lord has instituted. It would be a grievous sin against Charity, as the Recipient would probably be deprived of the Graces and effects of the Sacrament. It would be a grievous sin against Justice, as the Recipient has a right to   Valid      Sacraments.” (Father Henry Davis, S.J., “Moral and Pastoral Theology”, London: Sheed and Ward, 1936, Volume 2, page 27; emphasis added.)



Requirements for a  ValidSacrament




Proper Determinate Preparations
By
REAL    Catholic Priests and   REAL    Catholic Bishops

Proper Determinate Preparations  are the sine qua non,  both for Offering the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass as well as for Administering the Sacraments.

Proper Determinate Preparations include:

Proper Determinate Preparations of Place

Proper Determinate Preparations of the Sanctuary

Proper Determinate Preparations of the Remote Matter

Proper Determinate Preparations of the Proximate Matter




Proper Determinate Preparations of Place

Proper Determinate Preparations of Place  are concerned with a physical place, such as the proverbial brick and mortar building, whether a church building, or a chapel building, of whatever material it is constructed.

Proper Determinate Preparations of Place   also concern the many REALCatholic Priests and   REAL     Catholic Bishops who are currently in the Catacombs in many countries around the world, but who do not have a physical structure such as a church or a chapel building, and who must, instead, use physical areas, or various facilities of whatsoever kind, which temporarily function as a church, or a chapel, building.

Needless to say, during these days of persecution, REAL    Catacomb Catholic Priests and Bishops are very courageous, and some of them have - in fact - already suffered Martyrdom.




Proper Determinate Preparations of the Sanctuary

Proper Determinate Preparations of the Sanctuary   are concerned with the Sanctuary in which the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass will be Offered and/or in which certain Sacraments will be Administered.




Proper Determinate Preparations of the Remote Matter


Proper Determinate Preparations of the Remote Matter   are concerned with  REALCatholic Priests and   REAL     Catholic Bishops making a Proper Use of the various Liturgical Books such as the Pontificale Romanum and the Ritual Romanum to properly prepare those physical material objects which will be used in the Administration of the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Extreme Unction so that such objects become Primary Proper Determinate Remote Matter.

Those physical material objects which are used during the Administration of the Sacraments, but which are  not  used as the  Primary Proper Determinate Remote Matter,  are the  Secondary Proper Determinate Remote Matter  which includes the Exorcized and Blessed Salt used in the Sacrament of Baptism, the Blessed Candle used in the Sacrament of Baptism, the required 100% virgin olive oil and balsam Exorcized and Blessed by REAL      Catholic Bishops during the Mass of Chrism in which all three types of Holy Oils are made on Holy Thursday, plus the candles for Candlemas, and the palms for Palm Sunday.

Additional examples of the  Secondary Proper Determinate Remote Matter    includes two Holy Oils, including the Sacred Chrism, which are used in various ways, in the Sacraments of Baptism and Holy Orders (Priesthood and Episcopacy), the Blessed Vestments used in Holy Orders, and the other Blessed objects used in Holy Orders, etc.

Proper Determinate Preparations of the Remote Matter   also include the making of Holy Water which contains both clean water and salt, both of which are first Exorcized, then Blessed, then mingled together, which is used at later times for Exorcisms, Blessings, the Asperges, Vidi Aquam, etc., by Bishops and Priests, and by the Laity in their homes, and also their yards, gardens, vehicles, places of work, etc.

Also included is Gregorian Water, a.k.a. Water of Consecration, which is Holy Water to which is added wine, salt, and ashes, and used in the Consecration of Church buildings.

Proper Determinate Preparations of the Remote Matter   likewise include the making of Solemn Baptismal Water which contains O.S.Oleum Sanctum - Holy Oil - Oil of Catechumens, and  S.C.Sacro Chrismate - Sacred Chrism,  the only Holy Oil which includes balsam.

During the Mass of Chrism on Holy Thursday, the Bishop makes a sufficient amount of the three types of Holy Oils which are to last for an entire year and which are to be used by the Bishop during his Administration of the Sacraments of Confirmation, Priesthood, and the Episcopacy, and by the Bishop and by his Priests during the Solemn Administration of the Sacrament of Baptism.

For the record, the three types of Holy Oils the Bishop makes once a year, for the entire year, both for himself and also for all of his Priests, during the Mass of Chrism on Holy Thursday, are:


O.S.:  Oleum Sanctum - Holy Oil - Oil of Catechumens.

Oil of Catechumens is used:
1)  During the Solemn Administration of the Sacrament of Baptism.

2)  During the Administration of the Sacrament of the Holy Priesthood when the palms of the hands, and the thumb and forefinger of each hand, are anointed.

3)  During the Consecration of Altars.

4)  During the Blessing of the Baptismal Font on Holy Saturday and the Vigil of Pentecost.


S.C.Sacro Chrismate - Sacred Chrism.  It is the only Holy Oil which includes balsam.

Sacred Chrism is used:
1)  During the Solemn Administration of the Sacrament of Baptism.

2)  During the Administration of the Sacrament of Confirmation.

3)  During the Administration of the Sacrament of the Episcopacy.

4)  During the Consecration of:

a)  Church buildings.

b)  Chalices.

c)  Patens.

d)  Altar Stones.

e)  Church bells.

5)  During the Blessing of:
a)  Baptismal Fonts.

O.I.Oleum Infirmorum - Oil of the Sick (and Dying).

Oil of the Sick (and Dying) is used:
1)  During the Administration of the Sacrament of Extreme Unction (Last Anointing).


Oil Stock

These three different Holy Oils are put into an oil stock wich is a metal cylinder, usually of three parts, each part of which contains cotton which is saturated with one of the three types of oil.  Each part contains the initials of each one of the three types of Holy Oil, i.e. O.S., S.C., and O.I.  Only that one specific Holy Oil is placed in the metal part which is identified.  For example, O.S. contains only O.S.Oleum Sanctum - Holy Oil - Oil of Catechumens.

Ambry
Historically, the Oil Stock, along with possibly one or more bottles or larger containers of Holy Oil, is kept in a locked Ambry in the Church.  The Ambry is sometimes a wooden or metal box, either attached to, or set inside of, the wall of the Sanctuary, as in the above two examples.  It is usally designated:  Olea Sancta - Holy Oils.



Proper Determinate Preparations of the Proximate Matter
Which Becomes the Proper Determinate Matter of a Sacrament

For the Sacrament of the Most Holy Eucharist

Proper Determinate Preparations of the Proximate Matter for the Confection of the Sacrament of the Most Holy Eucharist during the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass are concerned with the Matter used for the Double Consecration during which the Mysterium Fidei, the Mystery of Faith - the Transubstantiation - is effected by a  Valid     Mass Celebrant (i.e., a  validly    Ordained Catholic Priest and by a  validly    Consecrated Catholic Bishop) during the Holy Sacrifice of the Catholic Traditional Rite of Mass.

This Matter for the Western Catholic Rites is:

1)  wine (per the requirements of the 1917 Code of Canon Law), into which a few drops of water have been added during the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass by the  Valid      Mass Celebrant.

2)  wheaten unleavened bread commnly called a "host" which, because it is unleavened, is very thin.  (Eastern Catholic Rites use leavened bread.)


The host Consecrated by the   Valid      Mass Celebrant during the Double Consecration at the Holy Sacrifice of the Catholic Traditional Mass can vary somewhat in size.  The size We use is 2 3/4" diameter.  Some hosts are made with various traditional designs on them as in the above example.

The hosts used for the later Administration of the Sacrament of the Most Holy Eucharist, either by a  validly    Ordained Catholic Priest and/or by a  validly     Consecrated Catholic Bishop, but NEVER by a Deacon and/or by the per se    invalid  and illegal "eucharistic ministers" - the Laity - which latter is an innovation by the   automatically excommunicated Modernist Heretics and the NEW Theology Theologian Heretics,  are usually 1 1/8" diameter, and they are also thin, Catholic Traditional Hosts, which have been previously Transubstantiated by a  Valid      Mass Celebrant (i.e., by a  validly    Ordained Catholic Priest and/or by a  validly      Consecrated Catholic Bishop) during the Holy Sacrifice of the Catholic Traditional Rite of Mass.

These   validly    Consecrated smaller size hosts are kept in a Ciborium which is kept in the Tabernacle on the  High/Main Altar.

The Double Consecration, during which the Mysterium Fidei, the Mystery of Faith - the Transubstantiation - is effected by a  Valid      Mass Celebrant (i.e., a  validly    Ordained Catholic Priest and a  validly    Consecrated Catholic Bishop) during the Holy Sacrifice of the Catholic Traditional Rite of Mass, which primary Rite of Mass in the West is identified by some liturgical historians as the Ancient Roman Rite.

This Ancient Roman Rite is found in the pre-1944 editions of the Missale Romanum, which begins with the Papal Bulla of Pope Saint Pius V, Quo Primum Tempore, which forbids changes to this Missal.

For the Sacrament of Baptism

Proper Determinate Preparations of the Proximate Matter for the Sacrament of Baptism are concerned with the Matter used for the Solemn Administration of the Sacrament of Baptism by a  a validly     Ordained Catholic Priest using a pre-1944 Rituale Romanum, or by a validly     Consecrated Catholic Bishop using a pre-1944 Pontificale Romanum.

The Matter of the Sacrament of Baptism is, of course, water.


Plain, Clean, True, Water to be used by the Laity, along with the Proper Form of Words, and the Proper Intention to do what Christ does, for the Baptism of an infant, a child, or an adult, who is in danger of death, and who has not been Baptized, when validly      Ordained Catholic Priest and/or validly     Consecrated Catholic Bishop, is not readily available to Baptize.
The special  Solemn Baptismal Water,   which is made outside of the Easter Vigil, by  validly   Ordained Catholic Priests and  validly     Consecrated Catholic Bishops, who make a proper use of the rubrics and prayers of the pre-1944 Rituale Romanum, by which  validly    Ordained Catholic Priests and  validly     Consecrated Catholic Bishops perform an Exorcism of the water, but also add not only the   Oleum Sanctum - Holy Oil - Oil of Catechumens,  but also the Sacro Chrismate - Sacred Chrism,   to a container of clean, true water, which entire mixture is then Blessed, which thereby produces the  Solemn Baptismal Water,  which later becomes the   Proper Determinate Matter     of the Sacrament of Baptism at the time when the Sacrament of Baptism is Solemnly Administered by a  validly      Ordained Catholic Priest who makes a proper use of the Rite of Baptism (whether for Children or Adults), as found in the pre-1944 Rituale Romanum, and also when the Sacrament of Baptism is Solemnly Administered by a validly     Consecrated Catholic Bishop who makes a proper use of the Rite of Baptism (whether for Children or Adults), as found in the pre-1944 Pontificale Romanum, at the pouring of the Solemn Baptismal Water    on the forehead of the one being Baptized as the Proper Determinate Form of Words     is being properly said by whoever is Administering this Sacrament, i.e. whether by a validly    Ordained Catholic Priest, or by a  validly     Consecrated Catholic Bishop.
For the Sacrament of Confirmation

Proper Determinate Preparations of the Proximate Matter for the Sacrament of Confirmation are concerned with the Matter used for the Administration of the Sacrament of Confirmation by a  validly     Consecrated Catholic Bishop, who uses a pre-1944 Pontificale Romanum, or by a  validly  Ordained Catholic Priest who has received the required faculties to do so by the Ordinary (validly     Consecrated Catholic Bishop) of his Roman Catholic Diocese which is NOT a part of the  SatanicSynod Vatican 2 church.

The Matter of the Sacrament of Confirmation is the Sacro Chrismate - Sacred Chrism.

For the Sacrament of Extreme Unction

Proper Determinate Preparations of the Proximate Matter for the Sacrament of Extreme Unction are concerned with the Matter used for the Administration of the Sacrament of Extreme Unction - the Last Anointing which is Administered by a validly    Ordained Catholic Priest and/or by a validly     Consecrated Catholic Bishop, who makes a proper use of a pre-1944 Rituale Romanum.

The Matter of the Sacrament of Extreme Unction is the Oleum Infirmorum - Oil of the Sick (and Dying) .

Proper Determinate Preparations of the Proximate Matter
Which Do NOT Become the Proper Determinate Matter of a Sacrament

Proper Determinate Preparations of the Proximate Matter  also include certain things which do NOT become the actual  Proper Determinate Matter of a Sacrament.

A few of the things on this non-inclusive list are:


1891 edition of a Pontificale Romanum

1) a pre-1944 Pontificale Romanum (We use an 1891 edition).

2) a pre-1944 Rituale Romanum.

3)  candles to be Blessed on the Feast Day of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary (Candlemas), February 2.

4)  palm for Palm Sunday.

5)  various vestments and other items needed during Holy Week such as:

a)  items for the new fire.

b)  the triple candlestick.

c)  the Paschal Candle.

d)  book for chanting of the 12 Prophecies.

e)  water for the Easter Water.




Proper Determinate Administrator


Grades of Holy Orders

Only a  validly      Ordained Catholic Priest, who has  validly     received the Sacrament of the Episcopacy, and is now a  validly     Consecrated Bishop, has received the fullness of the Sacrament of the Priesthood, and therefore has the Sacramental Power to   validly      Ordain Candidates to the Sacrament of Holy Orders.

A Layman becomes a Cleric when he receives the Tonsure and is permitted to wear the Cassock and Surplice.

Minor Orders:

Porter
Lector
Exorcist
Acolyte
Major Orders:
Sub-Deacon
Deacon
Priest
The Sacrament of the Priesthood is considered to consist of the Priesthood, per se, and the fullness of the Priesthood, the Sacrament of the Episcopacy.

Only a  validly      Ordained Priest and a  validly      Consecrated Prelate (a Bishop of whatever rank of ecclesiastical jurisdiction) are the   Valid      and lawful Administrators of these Sacraments:
Baptism (solemnly Administered; even the Laity can Baptize in danger of death).
Penance.
Holy Eucharist.
Extreme Unction.
Official Witness of the Church for the Sacrament of Matrimony.
Only a  validly     Consecrated Prelate (a Bishop of whatever rank of ecclesiastical jurisdiction) is the  Valid     and lawful Administrator of the Sacrament of Holy Orders.

The Administrators of the respective Sacraments which said Administrators can  validly    Administer, as explained above, are required to Administer their respective Sacraments properly and correctly.

This means that the Administrators of the respective Sacraments, which said Administrators can  validly    Administer, must make the   Proper Serious Use of the Rite of the Sacrament     which they intend to Administer.

Therefore, the   Proper Determinate Administrator     of a Sacrament is required to make the proper use of the:

Proper Determinate Matter

Proper Determinate Form of Words

Proper Determinate Intention

Proper Determinate Context,  a.k.a. the  Significatio ex adjunctis

Under normal circumstances, the Proper Determinate Administrator     of the Sacrament must have an intention to do what Christ does, i.e. to confect the Sacrament.

However, it is possible, because the intention is internal, that the   Proper Determinate Administrator     of the Sacrament could have a contrary intention, i.e. to intend not to confect the Sacrament.

WHEN this is the case, then the Priest or Prelate, who is the   Proper Determinate Administrator    of the Sacrament he is supposed to confect and properly Administer, having a contrary intention,  no longer acts   in Persona Christi    in the Person of Christ, and thus the Sacrament is per se  invalid       due to  defect of the intention  of the   Proper Determinate Administrator     of the Sacrament since his intention is contrary to the intention of Christ.

Such a person thereby contradicts the purpose or reason for which Christ instituted that specific Sacrament since, among other reasons, Christ does not contradict Himself, i.e. Christ, Who is the Primary Administrator of every Sacrament, does not Administer Sacraments which are per se   invalid       due to the defect of the intention  of the Secondary Administrator of a Sacrament who freely chooses to act  in persona anti-Christiin the person of anti-Christ, remember:

He that is not with Me, is against Me:  and he that gathereth not with Me, scattereth.  (Matthew 12:30.)

Those who have the defect of intention are not with Christ, they are against Christ; they try to divide the House of God.  Just as the anti-Christ is NOT with Christ, because anti-Christ is against Christ.  Otherwise, it is a contradiction of terms!

This is why:

Every kingdom divided against itself shall be made desolate:  and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand.   (Matthew 12:25.)
Now, if the House of God be divided against itself, how shall the House of God stand?

On the contrary:

“§ 1.  Omnes a christiana fide apostatae et omnes et singuli haeretici aut schismatici:  All apostates from the Christian faith and all heretics and schismatics:
1o.  Incurrunt ipso facto excommunicationem;Incur excommunication ipso facto  [automatically by the fact itself].”
(Codex Iuris Canonici- Code of Canon Law, # 2314; emphasis added.)
Readers who do not agree with Our above position regarding defect of intention are referred to Our analysis of this issue below in the article entitled:
The Issue Concerning:  “intendere facere quod facit Ecclesia”  to do what the Church does



The Primary Proper Determinate Administrator
Is the Eternal High Priest, Jesus Christ

The Primary Proper Determinate Administrator  of every Sacrament  is the Eternal High Priest, Jesus Christ.

“51. Holiness begins from Christ; and Christ is its cause.  For  no act conducive to salvation can be performed unless it proceeds from Him as from its Supernatural source.  ‘Without Me’, He says, ‘you can do nothing’. [Cf. John 15:5.] ....... When the Sacraments of the Church are Administered by external rite, it is He   [Christ]   Who produces their effect in Souls.  [Cf. Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., [b. 1225 A.D. in Rocca Secca, Naples, Italy - d. Wednesday, March 7, 1274 A.D. in Fossa Nuova, Italy], Doctor of the Church,  Summa Theologica,   Part III, Question 64, Article 3, On the Contrary.].” (Pope Pius XII, Eugenio Maria Giuseppe Giovanni Pacelli [b. at Rome, Kingdom of Italy on Thursday, March 2, 1876; Pope: Thursday, March 2, 1939 - d. at Castel Gandolfo, Italy on Thursday, October 9, 1958], Encyclical “Mystici Corporis Christi”, On the Mystical Body of Christ, Tuesday, June 29, 1943, ¶ 51; emphasis added.)

“On the contrary, Augustine (Isidore, Etym. vi) says: ‘The Divine Power in the Sacraments works inwardly in producing their salutary effect.’ Now the Divine Power is Christ’s as God, not as man. Therefore Christ produces the inward Sacramental effect, not as man, but as God.” (Summa Theologica,  Part III, Question 64, Article 3, On the Contrary; emphasis added.)
“54. .....For in virtue of the juridical mission by which our Divine Redeemer sent His Apostles into the world, as He had been sent by the Father, [Cf. John, 17:18; 20:21.] it is He [Christ] Who, through the Church, baptizes, teaches, rules, looses, binds, offers, sacrifices.” (Pope Pius XII, Encyclical “Mystici Corporis Christi”, On the Mystical Body of Christ, Tuesday, June 29, 1943, ¶ 54; emphasis added.)

All of these things help to explain the ultimate intrinsic theological basis which is that the efficacy of each of the Seven Sacraments functions in, and of, and by itself, i.e. that each Sacrament functions ex opere operato,   not  ex oper operantis.

Likewise, this is also the basis which explains the instrumental relationship of the  Secondary Proper Determinate Administrators of the Sacraments,  who are validly    Ordained Catholic Priests and  validly    Consecrated Catholic Bishops, to the Primary Proper Determinate Administrator  of every Sacrament, Who is the Eternal High Priest, Jesus Christ.

Despite these facts, there is also the requirement that all of the Secondary Proper Determinate Administrators of the Sacraments, who are validly    Ordained Catholic Priests and  validly    Consecrated Catholic Bishops, should be good, as the Universal Doctor teaches:

“A thing is required in a Sacrament in two ways. First, as being essential to it: and if this be wanting, the Sacrament is invalid; for instance, if the due Form or Matter be wanting. Secondly, a thing is required for a Sacrament, by reason of a certain fitness. And in this way good Ministers are required for a Sacrament”  (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., “Summa Theologica”, Part III, Question 64, Article 5, Reply to Objection 3; emphasis added).
Therefore, a good Minister is not an evil Minister,  because  a good Minister acts in Persona Christi,  while  an evil Minister acts in persona anti-Christi.  It is an absurdity to claim that Christ will act in a Minister who acts in the person of anti-Christin persona anti-ChristiChrist is NOT divided!

This is why:

Every kingdom divided against itself shall be made desolate:  and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand.   (Matthew 12:25.)
Now, if the House of God be divided against itself, how shall the House of God stand?

On the contrary:

“§ 1.  Omnes a christiana fide apostatae et omnes et singuli haeretici aut schismatici:  All apostates from the Christian faith and all heretics and schismatics:
1o.  Incurrunt ipso facto excommunicationem;Incur excommunication ipso facto  [automatically by the fact itself].”
(Codex Iuris Canonici- Code of Canon Law, # 2314; emphasis added.)
He that is not with Me, is against Me:  and he that gathereth not with Me, scattereth.  (Matthew 12:30.)




The Secondary Proper Determinate Administrator
Is a   ValidlyOrdained Priest and a   ValidlyConsecrated Bishop

As explained above,  ONLY a  validly     Ordained Priest and a  validly     Consecrated Prelate (a Bishop of whatever rank of ecclesiastical jurisdiction) are the   Valid      and lawful Administrators of these Sacraments:

Baptism (solemnly Administered; even the Catholic Laity can Baptize in danger of death).
Penance.
Holy Eucharist.
Extreme Unction.
Official Witness of the Church for the Sacrament of Matrimony.
Confirmation:  A validly     Consecrated Prelate is the Ordinary Administrator;  a  validly     Ordained Priest can only Administer the Sacrament of Confirmation validly   upon receiving the required faculties to do so by the Ordinary (a validly     Consecrated Catholic Bishop) of his Roman Catholic Diocese which is NOT a part of the SatanicSynod Vatican 2 church.
Only a  validly    Consecrated Prelate (a Bishop of whatever rank of ecclesiastical jurisdiction) is the  Valid      and lawful Administrator of the Sacrament of Holy Orders and is required to Administer it properly and correctly.

This explains why the Roman Catholic Council of Trent decreed the following against the 16th Century Protestant heresies, including the heresy of the general priesthood of all the Faithful:

CANON X.  If any one saith, that all Christians have power to Administer the Word, and all the Sacraments; let him be   anathema.

CANON XI.  If any one saith, that, in ministers, when they effect, and confer the Sacraments, there is not required the intention at least of doing what the Church does; let him be anathema.

CANON XII.  If any one saith, that a minister, being in mortal sin, - if so be that he observe all the essentials which belong to the effecting, or conferring of, the Sacrament, - neither effects, nor confers the Sacrament; let him be anathema.

CANON XIII.  If any one saith, that the received and approved Rites of the Catholic Church, wont to be used in the Solemn  Administration of the Sacraments, may be contemned [despised], or without sin be omitted at pleasure by the ministers, or be changed, by every pastor of the churches, into other new ones; let him be anathema.  (Roman Catholic Council of Trent, Session 7, Monday, March 3, 1547, Decree on the Sacraments, Canons on the Sacraments in General, Canons 10 - 13; emphasis added.)

Therefore, it is NOT the Catholic Church which physically Offers the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and physically Administers the Sacraments, it is the  validly     Ordained Catholic Priests and the  validly      Consecrated Catholic Bishops who act   in Persona Christi     - in the Person of Christ   -  NOT   in the person of the Church, who do this!

This explains why:

“.....in virtue of the juridical mission by which our Divine Redeemer sent His Apostles into the world, as He had been sent by the Father, [Cf. John, 17:18; 20:21.] it is He [Christ] Who, through the  [Ministers of the] Church, baptizes, teaches, rules, looses, binds, offers, sacrifices.” (Pope Pius XII, Encyclical “Mystici Corporis Christi”, On the Mystical Body of Christ, Tuesday, June 29, 1943, ¶ 54; emphasis added.)
Said another way, it is NOT the Catholic Church, per se, which Administers the Sacraments, it is NOT the Catholic Church which baptizes, teaches, rules, looses, binds, offers, sacrifices, but rather it is the Eternal High Priest Who does these things, through the Administrators of the Sacraments of the Church, not  by  the Church herself, per se.

Hence, the Catholic Church does NOT act  in Persona Christi,    in the Person of Christ. The Catholic Church is NOT a PERSON, Jesus Christ is a PERSON, the Administrator of a Sacrament is a PERSON.
 

It is self-evident that those who are outside of the Catholic Church are NOT members of the Catholic Church, nor are they members of the Mystical Body of Christ, the Catholic Church.  Therefore, to make the claim that “a Protestant”, or the member of any non-Catholic church, or the member of any anti-Catholic church, or organization, could somehow be a member of another church of whatsoever kind, including the Catholic Church, but without first renouncing one's membership, one's adherence, one's allegiance, to the first church, or to some other religious community or organization or society of whatsoever kind,  is a contradiction of terms.

This is part of the heresy of false ecumenism because such a person retains membership, and professes two different faiths, two different beliefs, two different creeds, in two different churches or in two different and/or contrary religious/spiritual organizations of whatsoever kind.

Sometimes a distinction is made between the heresy of false ecumenism, per se, and only this part of the heresy of false ecumenism,  by using various terms which identify this specific heresy as the heresy of:  “double/dual membership”; “double/dual attachment”; “double/dual adherence”; or “double/dual allegiance”.

Such a position contradicts Divine Revelation found in Sacred Scripture and Genuine Apostolic Tradition since the form of words which are used the Sacrament “are pronounced  in Persona Christi      Who says of Himself [John 14:6]:  `I AM THE TRUTH.’”  (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., Summa Contra Gentiles, Book 4, Chapter 8.)

“For they who separate the Son and alienate the Word from the Father, ought themselves to be separated from the Catholic Church and to be alien from the Christian name. Let them therefore be anathema     to you, because they have ‘corrupted the word of Truth’.  It is an Apostolic injunction, ‘If any man preach any other Gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him he accursed’” (Synod of Sardica [343 A.D.], Encyclical Letter,  ¶  49).

No man can serve two masters.  For either he will hate the one, and love the other:  or he will sustain the one, and despise the other.  You cannot serve God and mammon.”  (Matthew 6:24; emphasis added.)

It is absurd to think that a person can retain two contradictory membership, and professes two different faiths, two different beliefs, two different creeds, in two different churches or in two different and/or contrary religious/spiritual organizations of whatsoever kind.

He that is not with Me, is against Me:  and he that gathereth not with Me, scattereth.  (Matthew 12:30.)

Those who think they can serve two masters are not only irrational, but they are apostates from the Catholic Church.

Now, if the House of God be divided against itself, how shall the House of God stand?

On the contrary:

“§ 1.  Omnes a christiana fide apostatae et omnes et singuli haeretici aut schismatici:  All apostates from the Christian faith and all heretics and schismatics:
1o.  Incurrunt ipso facto excommunicationem;Incur excommunication ipso facto  [automatically by the fact itself].”
(Codex Iuris Canonici- Code of Canon Law, # 2314; emphasis added.)
It is NOT Satan, it is not anti-Christ, it is NOT the human agents of Satan who have the power to make up NEW rites of masses - or to make up NEW rites for all of the sacraments, as have the heretics and apostates:
1)  Pope MontiniPaul 6, Giovanni Battista Enrico Antonio Maria Montini [b. at Concesio, Italy on Sunday, September 26, 1897; Pope:  Friday, June 21, 1963 - d. at Castel Gandolfo, Italy on Sunday, August 6, 1978];

2)  Pope Wyotya - JP-2, a.k.a. John-Paul 2, Karol Józef Wyotya, a.k.a. Karol Józef Wojtyla [b. at Wadowice, Poland on Tuesday, May 18, 1920 - d. at the Apostolic Palace, Vatican City on Friday, April 1, 2005];

because all they can do, and all everyone else who has helped them in their diabolical deeds can do, is to make up anti-masses and anti-sacraments, because God alone can institute a Sacrament:
“On the contrary, The institutor of anything is he who gives it strength and power: as in the case of those who institute laws. But the power of a Sacrament is from God alone, as we have shown above (A[1]; Q[62], A[1]). Therefore God alone can institute a Sacrament.” (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., “Summa Theologica”, Part III, Question 64, Article 2, On the Contrary; emphasis added.)
For those who want more proof:

“Human institutions observed in the Sacraments are not essential to the Sacrament; but belong to the Solemnity which is added to the Sacraments in order to arouse devotion and reverence in the Recipients. But those things that are essential to the Sacrament, are instituted by Christ Himself, Who is God and man.   And though they are not all handed down by the Scriptures, yet the Church holds them from the intimate Tradition of the Apostles, according to the saying of the Apostle (1 Cor. 11:34): The rest I will set in order when I come.”  (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., “Summa Theologica”, Part III, Question 64, Article 2, Reply to Objection 1; emphasis added.)

The Apostles and their successors are God's Vicars in governing the Church which is built on Faith and the Sacraments of Faith. Wherefore, just as they may not institute another Church, so neither may they deliver another Faith, nor institute other Sacraments: on the contrary, the Church is said to be built up with the Sacraments which flowed from the side of Christ while hanging on the Cross.”  (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., “Summa Theologica”, Part III, Question 64, Article 2, Reply to Objection 3; emphasis added.)

“A thing is required in a Sacrament in two ways. First, as being essential to it: and if this be wanting, the Sacrament is invalid; for instance, if the due Form or Matter be wanting. Secondly, a thing is required for a Sacrament, by reason of a certain fitness. And in this way good ministers are required for a Sacrament.”  (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., “Summa Theologica”, Part III, Question 64, Article 5, Reply to Objection 3; emphasis added.)

Therefore, those Administrators of the Sacraments who are NOT properly fit to Administer the Sacraments because they have a contrary intention, are NOT good Ministers (i.e. Administrators) - which is an essential requirement for a  Valid      Sacrament - and therefore, they are  invalid     Administrators of the Sacraments because they are NOT good Administrators which also means that the Sacraments which they Administer are invalid !
 

Since, therefore, the sanctification of man is in the power of God Who sanctifies, it is not for man to decide what things should be used for his sanctification, but this is determined by Divine institution” (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., [b. 1225 A.D. in Rocca Secca, Naples, Italy - d. Wednesday, March 7, 1274 A.D., in Fossa Nuova, Italy], Doctor of the Church, Summa Theologica, Part III, Question 60, Article 5, Body).

Therefore, the Administrator of a Sacrament, who deliberately makes a contrary intention to the intention of Christ, Who instituted that Sacrament, has thereupon CHANGED that which has been determined by Divine institution and thereby makes  invalid      that Sacrament because his contrary intention has, de facto, made a different sacrament - an anti-sacrament which is NOT   instituted by Christ Himself, Who is God and man!

This is why:

“In conferring the Sacraments, as also in the Consecration in the Mass, it is never allowed to adopt a probable course of action as to   validityand to abandon the safer course. The contrary was explicitly condemned by Pope Innocent XI [1670  - 1676].  To do so would be a grievous sin against Religion, namely an act of irreverence toward what Christ Our Lord has instituted. It would be a grievous sin against Charity, as the Recipient would probably be deprived of the Graces and effects of the Sacrament. It would be a grievous sin against Justice, as the Recipient has a right to   Valid      Sacraments.” (Father Henry Davis, S.J., “Moral and Pastoral Theology”, London: Sheed and Ward, 1936, Volume 2, page 27; emphasis added.)
In the above case of a contrary intention, the Administrator of the Sacrament is NOT merely adopting a probable course of action, which is NEVER allowed, the Administrator has, because of his contrary intention, instituted an anti-sacrament!

But - God alone can institute a Sacrament.

Why?

Since, therefore, the sanctification of man is in the power of God Who sanctifies, it is not for man to decide what things should be used for his sanctification, but this is determined by Divine institution” (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., [b. 1225 A.D. in Rocca Secca, Naples, Italy - d. Wednesday, March 7, 1274 A.D., in Fossa Nuova, Italy], Doctor of the Church, Summa Theologica, Part III, Question 60, Article 5, Body; emphasis added).


Proper Determinate Matter

“As stated above (A. 6, ad 2), in the Sacraments the words are as the Form and sensible things are as the Matter.  Now in all things composed of matter and form, the determining principle is on the part of the Form, which is as it were the end and terminus of the Matter.  Consequently, for the being of a thing [i.e. the ontological essence of a thing] the need of a determinate Form is prior to the need of determinate Matter; for determinate Matter is needed that it may be adapted to the determinate Form.  Since, therefore, in the Sacraments determinate sensible things are required which are as the Sacramental Matter, much more is there need in them of a determinate Form of Words.”  (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., Summa Theologica, Part III, Question 60, Article 7; emphasis added).

Therefore, since each one of the Sacraments which was perfectly and immutably instituted by Christ, one of the very important things each Sacrament must have is  Proper Determinate Matter    which is an essential part of the  validity     of any Sacrament, which obviously includes the Sacrament of the Episcopacy.




Proper Determinate Matter
For Each of the Seven Sacraments



The Proper Determinate Matter for the Sacrament of Baptism

The Proper Determinate Matter of the Sacrament of Baptism is two types of water:

Solemn Baptismal Water   for Solemn Baptism, Administered by a validly      Ordained Catholic Priest and/or by a validly     Consecrated Catholic Bishop, is the Proper Determinate Matter for Solemn Baptism.

Plain, Clean, True, Water     for emergency Baptism Administered by a Catholic Laic is the Proper Determinate Matter for emergency Baptism.



The Proper Determinate Matter for the Sacrament of Penance

The Proper Determinate Remote Matter of the Sacrament of Penance consists of the unforgiven sins committed by the Penitent after Baptism.

The Proper Determinate Proximate Matter  consists of the acts of the Penitent, that is, contrition, confession, a firm purpose of amendment, and satisfaction.



The Proper Determinate Matter for the Sacrament of Confirmation

Only the Anointing of the forehead, byavalidlyConsecrated Catholic Bishop, of a   validly    Baptized Person, with Sacred Chrismis the Proper Determinate Matter.



The Proper Determinate Matter
For the Administration of the Sacrament of the Most Holy Eucharist


A Ciborium Containing   ValidlyConsecrated Hosts, 1 1/8" diameter

Wheaten unleavened bread, in the form of 1" diameter or 1 1/8" diameter, thin Catholic Traditional Hosts, which have been previously Transubstantiated by a  Valid Mass Celebrant (i.e., a  validly     Ordained Catholic Priest and/or a  validly     Consecrated Catholic Bishop) during the Holy Sacrifice of the Catholic Traditional Rite of Mass, and kept in a Ciborium which is kept in the Tabernacle on the High/Main Altar,   the primary Rite of Mass in the West being the Ancient Roman Rite, which is found in the pre-1944 editions of the Missale Romanum, which begins with the Papal Bulla of Pope Saint Pius V, Quo Primum Tempore, which forbids changes to this Missal.



The Proper Determinate Matter for the Sacraments of Major Holy Orders

For the Deaconate, Priesthood, and the Episcopacy the Proper Determinate Matter is the Imposition of Hands:

“3. All agree that the Sacraments of the New Law, as sensible signs which produce invisible grace, must both signify the grace which they produce and produce the grace which they signify. Now the effects which must be produced and hence also signified by Sacred Ordination to the Diaconate, the Priesthood, and the Episcopacy, namely power and grace, in all the rites of various times and places in the universal Church, are found to be sufficiently signified by the imposition of hands and the words which determine it. Besides, every one knows that the Roman Church has always held as valid Ordinations conferred according to the Greek rite without the traditio instrumentorum; so that in the very Council of Florence, in which was effected the union of the Greeks with the Roman Church, the Greeks were not required to change their rite of Ordination or to add to it the traditio instrumentorum: and it was the will of the Church that in Rome itself the Greeks should be ordained according to their own rite. It follows that, even according to the mind of the Council of Florence itself, the traditio instrumentorum is not required for the substance and validity      of this Sacrament by the will of Our Lord Jesus Christ Himself....”

“4.  ......It follows as a consequence that We should declare, and in order to remove all controversy and to preclude doubts of conscience, We do by Our Apostolic Authority declare, and if there was ever a lawful disposition to the contrary We now decree that at least in the future the Traditio Instrumentorum is not necessary for the   validityof the Sacred Orders of the Diaconate, the Priesthood, and the Episcopacy.” the Sacred Orders of the Diaconate, the Priesthood, and the Episcopacy.”  (Pope Pius XII, Eugenio Pacelli [Thursday, March 2, 1939 - Thursday, October 9, 1958], First Sunday of Advent, November 30, 1947, Apostolic Constitution Sacramentum Ordinis, On the Sacrament of Order, First Sunday of Advent, November 30, 1947; ¶¶ 3 - 4; emphasis added.)



The Proper Determinate Matter for the Sacrament of Matrimony

The mutual consent of the one adult natural man and the one adult natural woman by which the one adult natural man and the one adult natural woman give themselves to one another until death do them part, is the Proper Determinate Matter for the Sacrament of Matrimony.



The Proper Determinate Matter for the Sacrament of Extreme Unction

The Anointing of the forehead (in emergencies or in somewhat similar situations), otherwise when possible, the Anointing of the eyes, ears, nose, mouth, hands, and feet, by a  validly      Ordained Catholic Priest and/or a  validly      Consecrated Catholic Bishop, with the  O.I.Oleum Infirmorum - Oil of the Sick (and Dying) - which is the Proper Determinate Matter for the Sacrament of Extreme Unction.




Proper Determinate Form of Words

“As stated above (A. 6, ad 2), in the Sacraments the words are as the Form and sensible things are as the Matter.  Now in all things composed of matter and form, the determining principle is on the part of the Form, which is as it were the end and terminus of the Matter.  Consequently, for the being of a thing [i.e. the ontological essence of a thing] the need of a determinate Form is prior to the need of determinate Matter; for determinate Matter is needed that it may be adapted to the determinate Form.  Since, therefore, in the Sacraments determinate sensible things are required which are as the Sacramental Matter, much more is there need in them of a determinate Form of Words.”  (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., Summa Theologica, Part III, Question 60, Article 7; emphasis added).

Concerning the  Proper Determinate Form of Words     of every Sacrament, one discovers that there are not one or two, but six ways to  invalidate     the  Proper Determinate Form of Words     of a Sacrament:

“Nil formae demas, nil addas, nil variabis, transmutare cave, corrumpere verba, morari.”

Omit nothing of the Form, add nothing, change nothingBeware of transmuting, corrupting, or interrupting the words.” (Msgr. Jean Marie Hervé [1881-1958], “Manuale Theologiae Dogmaticae”, Paris: Berche et Pagis, 1934; emphasis added).

Therefore, since each one of the Sacraments which was perfectly and immutably instituted by Christ, one of the very important things each Sacrament must have is   Proper Determinate Form of Words     which is an essential part of the  validity       of any Sacrament, which obviously includes the Sacrament of the Episcopacy.




Proper Determinate Intention

For the record, there is also   Proper Determinate Intention      required for the validity      of a Sacrament.

What is unintentional happens by chance.  But this can not be said of the Sacramental operation.  Therefore, the Sacraments require the intention of the minister.”  (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., [b. 1225 A.D. in Rocca Secca, Naples, Italy - d. Wednesday, March 7, 1274 A.D., in Fossa Nuova, Italy], Doctor of the Church, Summa Theologica, Part III, Question 64, Article 8).

“...An animate instrument, such as a minister, is not only moved, but in a sense moves itself, insofar as by his own will he moves his bodily members to act.  Thus, his intention is required, whereby he subjects himself to the principal agent:  that is, it is necessary that he intend to do that which Christ and the Church do.”  (Summa Theologica, Part III, Question 64, Article 8, Reply to Objection 1; emphasis added.).

For an Administrator who has a contrary intention, who logically does NOT subject himself to the principal agent - Christ - please refer to Our analysis above.




The Issue Concerning:
intendere facere quod facit Ecclesia
to do what the Church does

The common statement that the Administrator must have the intention to do what the Church does is not only too indefinite, it is too easily misunderstood, and very easy for heretics to twist to justify one or more of their heresies!

The expression “intendere facere quod facit Ecclesia” (to do what the Church does) has been used since the 12th Century by:

1.  Bishop Gilbert de la Porrée [b. born in Poitiers, West-Central France,  c. 1075 - d. on Saturday, September 4, 1154], a.k.a. Gilbert of Poitiers, Gilbertus Porretanus or Pictaviensis, became Bishop of Poitiers in 1142 and was denounced as a heretic by two Archdeacons,  Arnaud and Calon.  In 1148 Saint Bernard of Clairvaux, the heresy hunter, brought Gilbert to trial for heresy which resulted in Bishop Gilbert being required to make corrections to some of what he had written.

2.  Praepositinus, a.k.a. Gilbert Prevostin of Cremona, Prevostinus Cremonensis [b. at Cremona, Northern Italy in c. 1130 - 1135 - d. at Paris on February 25, 1210] was a student of:

a) Bishop Achard of St. Victor, C.R.S.A. [b. c. 1100 - d.  on Monday, March 29, 1171], Bishop of Avranches, France [1162 - 1171].

b)  Bishop Maurice de Sully [b.  ?   - d. at Paris, France on Wednesday, September 11, 1196], Bishop of Paris [1160 - Wednesday, September 11, 1196], energetically defended King Henry II [b. at Le Mans, France on Sunday, March 5, 1133 - d. at Chinon Castle, France on Thursday, July 6, 1189]in his controversy with Archbishop Saint Thomas à Becket [b. at Cheapside, London, England on December 21, c. 1118 or 1120 - d. martyred in his Cathedral at Canterbury, South East England on Tuesday, December 29, 1170]. Bishop Maurice forbade the celebration of the feast of the Immaculate Conception in his Diocese.

c) Petrus (Peter) Comestor [b. at Troyes, North-Central France in   ?    - d  at Paris, France, c. October 21, 1178] borrowed frequently from profane authors, especially Flavius Josephus for the beginning of the Gospels. The text is paraphrased in a commentary where all data, cosmological, physical, philosophical, theological, geographical, etc., are found. There are numerous inaccuracies and fables in his writings.
Before 1194, Praepositinus taught at Paris, France and had lived among the Dualist Cathar Heretics, either in Lombardy, Northern Italy, or in Mainz, a.k.a. Mentz, Germany.  Dualist heretics known as the Patarines lived in Northern Italy, including Milan, and influenced the Cathar Heretics in Milan during the twelfth century.  The Cathar Heretics also became known as the Albigensian Heretics.

3.  The Universal Doctor, Saint Thomas Aquinas:

“He who mutilates the sacramental words, if he does this purposely, appears not to intend to do what the Church does; wherefore it seems that in such a case the Sacrament is not conferred.”  (Summa Theologica, Ill, Question 60, Article 7, Reply to Objection 3; emphasis added.)

“Dicendum, quod illequi corrupte profert verba sacramentalia, si hoc ex industria facit, non videtur intendere facere quod facit Ecclesia ; et ita non videtur perfici sacramentum.” (Summa Theologica, P. Ill, quaest. 60, art. 7- ad 3.)

However, the Common, a.k.a. Universal, Doctor
[N.B.: Common/Universal Doctor is much more than a sobriquet, but one of several titles given to him.  The title Doctor Communis (Common/Universal Doctor) dates to the fourteenth century; the title Doctor Angelicus (Angelic Doctor) dates to the fifteenth century.

This man is supreme among modern teachers of philosophy and theology, and indeed in every subject. And such is the common view and opinion, so that nowadays in the University of Paris they call him the Doctor Communis because of the outstanding clarity of his teaching." (Tolomeo da Lucca, Historia Ecclesiastica  - Church History [1317], 23, c. 9).

2. Such a combination of doctrine and piety, of erudition and virtue, of truth and charity, is to be found in an eminent degree in the Angelic Doctor and it is not without reason that he has been given the sun for a device; for he both brings the light of learning into the minds of men and fires their hearts and wills with the virtues.”

11. He enjoyed a more than human reputation for intellect and learning and Pius V was therefore moved to enroll him officially among the holy Doctors with the title of Angelic....  We so heartily approve the magnificent tribute of praise bestowed upon this most divine genius that We consider that Thomas should be called not only the Angelic, but also the Common or Universal Doctor of the Church; for the Church has adopted his philosophy for her own, as innumerable documents of every kind attest.”

23.  If these considerations are borne in mind as well as the praise bestowed by Christ Himself to which We have already referred, nobody will be surprised that St. Thomas should also have received the title of the Doctor of the Eucharist.” (Pope Pius XI, Achille Ratti [Monday, February 6, 1922 - Friday, February 10, 1939], Encyclical Studiorum Ducem, On St. Thomas Aquinas, Friday, June 29, 1923, ¶¶ 2, 11, 23; emphasis added.)]

seems to have partially corrected himself by later adding Christ:
it is necessary that he intend to do that which Christ and the Church do
This is to be found herein:
“...An animate instrument, such as a minister, is not only moved, but in a sense moves itself, insofar as by his own will he moves his bodily members to act.  Thus, his intention is required, whereby he subjects himself to the principal agent:  that is, it is necessary that he intend to do that which Christ and the Church do.”  (Summa Theologica, Part III, Question 64, Article 8, Reply to Objection 1; emphasis added.).
The expression “intendere facere quod facit Ecclesia” (to do what the Church does) is, at the very least, misleading, indefinite, imprecise, often misunderstood, and too often used by heretics for their own purposes.  Bottom line, for these reasons, this statement borders on heresy and should never be used!

Saint Thomas should have completely corrected his earlier statement to say this instead:

“...An animate instrument, such as a minister, is not only moved, but in a sense moves itself, insofar as by his own will he moves his bodily members to act.  Thus, his intention is required, whereby he subjects himself to the principal agent:  that is, it is necessary that he intend to do that which Christ does.”
Saint Thomas Aquinas should have been much more precise, saying:

"Thus, his intention is required, whereby he subjects himself to the principal agent:  that is, it is necessary that he intend to do that which the Eternal High Priest, Jesus Christ, does, because the Catholic Church, per se, did NOT institute the Mass and the Sacraments, the Eternal High Priest, Jesus Christ, did, and the principal agent is NOT the Church, it is Christ."

It is not even logical to say:

it is necessary that he intend to do that which the Church does
because the Church, per se, is NOT an agent, and certainly not the principal agent.

How this confusion came about by almost forgetting about Christ as the one and only principal agent apparently is the result of the growing pains of Scholastic Philosophy and Thomistic Theology?

In those earlier days, there was less precision of thought and expression as witnessed by the more general definitions and terminology, in contradistinction the the growing precision of thought and expression which typified later generations of Scholastics and Thomists.

Of course, there was also some influence of various errors to which, for example, Praepositinus, a.k.a. Gilbert Prevostin of Cremona, was exposed:

1)  When he was a student of  Bishop Maurice de Sully    who had    energetically defended King Henry II     in his controversy with Archbishop Saint Thomas à Becket.   This is also the same  Bishop Maurice de Sully   who had  forbade the celebration of the feast of the Immaculate Conception in his diocese.

2)  When he was a student of Petrus (Peter) Comestor    of whom it is said that  there are numerous inaccuracies and fables in his writings.

To what extent these errors influenced Praepositinus, a.k.a. Gilbert Prevostin of Cremona, We have not yet discovered.  However, there was obviously one, or perhaps more than one, reason why Praepositinus  had lived among the Dualist Cathar Heretics!  An obviously very negative defective blemish on his ecclesiastical curriculum vitae.

Then one discovers that in 1148 Saint Bernard of Clairvaux, a.k.a. the heresy hunter, had  Bishop Gilbert de la Porrée    in his proverbial heresy sights, perhaps due to the attention brought to this Bishop by two Archdeacons of his own Diocese who publicly condemned their Bishop as a heretic in 1142, which was followed in 1147 in Paris, France, in another condemnation of  Bishop Gilbert de la Porrée     by Bishop Peter Lombard    f or Bishop Gilbert's     heretical Trinitarian beliefs.  Unfortunately, Saint Bernard was by no means an adept Scripture exegetic and so was unable to make a solid case against  Bishop Gilbert.  Nevertheless, the trial judge - Pope Eugene III, Bernardo Paganelli Di Montemagno [Thursday, February 15, 1145 - Wednesday, July 8, 1153] - required   Bishop Gilbert     to make corrections to the texts on the Holy Trinity which he had written in his Commentary on Boethius's, Opuscala Sacra.

The Universal Doctor, Saint Thomas Aquinas, despite his excellent work in the Summa Theologica, Summa Contra Gentiles, etc., is neither infallible nor an official teacher of the Catholic Church because only  Valid     Catholic Bishops are the official teachers in the Catholic Church.

For example, concerning Saint Thomas Aquinas, in regard to what he wrote about the Immaculate Conception, which some have interpreted as Saint Thomas being against the Immaculate Conception, in the Edition of his Summa Theologica, translated by the Fathers of the English Dominican Province, printed in 1917 by Benzinger Brothers, Printers to the Holy Apostolic See, one reads in part this editorial comment:

St. Thomas as a Doctor of the Church and in matters which were not then ‘de fide,’ is a witness to the expression of the faith of his time. Hence his line of argument coincides with, because it follows, that of St. Bernard, Peter Lombard, Alexander of Hales, Albert the Great, St. Bonaventure. It was not likely that St. Thomas would differ from the great masters of his time, who failed to understand that the grace of redemption might at the same time be one of preservation and prevention. Nor is it likely that St. Thomas had any reliable information about the movement* in progress at that time towards a belief in the Immaculate Conception.For the complete text, please click on this link.
Besides the confusion about the Immaculate Conception, which the editorial commentary has clarified,   Saint Thomas was obviously not familiar with the Eastern Rites of the Catholic Church which it seems most Eastern Rites, and perhaps even all of the Eastern Rites of the Catholic Church, during the Ordination of Priests, there is no touching of the Chalice, unlike in the Western Rites.

It seems that Saint Thomas assumed all Catholic Rites for the Ordination of Priests contain the physical touching  Traditio Instrumentorum     of the Chalice?  Here is what he writes:

“The conferring of power is effected by giving them something pertaining to their proper act. And since the principal act of a priest is to consecrate the body and blood of Christ, the priestly character is imprinted at the very giving of the chalice under the prescribed form of words.”  (Summa Theologica, Supplement, Question 37, Article 5, Conclusion; emphasis added.)

For the record, apparently it was not until the Seventeenth Œcumenical Council, The First Council of Basel, Ferrara, Florence [Monday, April 9, 1438 A.D. - Thursday, August 7, 1445 A.D.] that the Roman Catholic Church officially permitted the Eastern Rites to continue their Ordinations without the need of the  Traditio Instrumentorum.

Of course, this was about 168 years after the Summa Theologica had been written, with the Summa Theologica having been written between 1265 - 1274, and the Papal Bulla of Pope Eugene IV, Gabriele Condulmer [Thursday, March 3, 1431 -  Tuesday, February 23, 1447], “Cantate Domino”, Union with the Copts, with the Infallible Œcumenical Council of Florence,  Session 11, Friday, February 4, 1442 A.D.

Nevertheless, IF this statement of Saint Thomas had been historically correct, it would have meant that the Eastern Rites of the Catholic Church would have never have had any  validly     Ordained Priests, at least up to 1442!

Fortunately, Pope Pius XII clearly and infallibly settled this issue:

According to the Apostolic Constitution Sacramentum Ordinis, On the Sacrament of Order, Pope Pius XII, Eugenio Pacelli [Thursday, March 2, 1939 - Thursday, October 9, 1958], First Sunday of Advent, November 30, 1947 infallabily teaches:

“4.  ......It follows as a consequence that We should declare, and in order to remove all controversy and to preclude doubts of conscience, We do by Our Apostolic Authority declare, and if there was ever a lawful disposition to the contrary We now decree that at least in the future the   Traditio Instrumentorum      is not necessary for the  validity of the Sacred Orders of the Diaconate, the Priesthood, and the Episcopacy.”


Commentary

The Eternal High Priest, Jesus Christ, works through His human instruments to Offer Mass and to Administer the Sacraments.  The Catholic Church does NOT Offer Mass and does NOT Administer the Sacraments.  Therefore, the expression “intendere facere quod facit Ecclesia” (to do what the Church does) is not only illogical and absurd, it really is NOT  true!

It seems that too often theologians get so involved in various unsound theological theories, which taken literally, at face value, are in and of themselves tentatively  true, but can not be applied to the real world - the actual world of reality - because they fail to observe the  true  (not merely theoretically  true  in some fantasy world, a.k.a. the world of dreams  vis-à-vis  Plato [b. at Athens, Greece  c. 428 - 427 B.C., or c. 424 - 423 B.C. - d. at Athens, Greece  c.  348 - 347 B.C.]) theological realities, i.e. that which actually happens in the real world, NOT in some far out fantasy world!

Therefore, certain terms, e.g. “intendere facere quod facit Ecclesia” (to do what the Church does) may be literally true, but substantially     (essentially; materially; substantively)  false  because they are egregiously  equivocal.
 

Note:  This is NOT the same thing as a Priest or a Prelate being bi-ritual which is usually used to designate the fact that a certain Priest/Prelate has the faculties to Offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, using the valid liturgical rites, of both an Eastern Liturgical Rite of the Catholic Church (where the Mass is called the Divine Liturgy) and also a Western Liturgical Rite of the Catholic Church (where the primary Liturgical Rite of the Mass is called by some historians the Ancient Roman Rite - the one with which most Western Rite Roman Catholics are familiar).

TP Q[27] Ed. Note

“It will thus be seen how accurately St. Thomas speaks of the ‘flesh’ or body of our Blessed Lady. For it should be remembered that, according to St. Thomas, the human body is animated in succession by (1) a vegetative, (2) a sensitive, and (3) a rational soul. Hence his assertion that ‘the flesh of the Blessed Virgin was conceived in original sin’ (Q[14], A[3], ad 1) means that the body of the Blessed Virgin, being descended from Adam both materially and seminally, contracted the bodily defects which are conveyed by seminal generation, and are the results of the privation of original justice (Q[69], A[4], ad 3). Before animation, therefore the body of the Blessed Virgin would not be infected with the guilt of original sin, because privation of grace can only be in that which is the subject of grace, viz. the rational soul. Nevertheless, before animation the body of the Blessed Virgin, being seminally descended from Adam, was such that it would have been the means of transmitting the taint of original sin to the rational soul at the very first instant of animation, unless the grace of the Redeemer intervened and sanctified her soul ‘in that self-same instant,’ thus redeeming her and preventing her from contracting the guilt of original sin.”

TP Q[27] Ed. Note

“Why, then, does St. Thomas say that because the Blessed Virgin was not sanctified before animation, therefore she could be sanctified only after animation?”

TP Q[27] Ed. Note

“Such a conclusion would hold if it were a question of the order of Nature: ‘a thing must be before it is such [prius est esse quam esse tale]’; and therefore the soul must be, before it is sanctified. But if St. Thomas held for a posteriority of time, no matter how short, we ask how it was that he did not perceive the fallacy of the argument, since it might be neither before nor after, but in the very instant of, animation.”

TP Q[27] Ed. Note

“The question is answered thus: St. Thomas as a Doctor of the Church and in matters which were not then ‘de fide,’ is a witness to the expression of the faith of his time. Hence his line of argument coincides with, because it follows, that of St. Bernard, Peter Lombard, Alexander of Hales, Albert the Great, St. Bonaventure. It was not likely that St. Thomas would differ from the great masters of his time, who failed to understand that the grace of redemption might at the same time be one of preservation and prevention. Nor is it likely that St. Thomas had any reliable information about the movement* in progress at that time towards a belief in the Immaculate Conception. [*Principally in England, where, owing to the influence of St. Anselm (1109), the doctrine was maintained by Eadmer (1137). Nicolas of St. Albans (1175), Osbert of Clare (1170), Robert Grosseteste, Bishop of Lincoln (1253), William of Ware (1300), who was the master of Duns Scotus (1308)]. No doubt he knew something of it, but the names of its promoters would have weighed little with him as against those of Bernard, Albert, Peter, Alexander, and Bonaventure. And it must not be forgotten that among those who upheld the doctrine of the Immaculate Conception, not a few ascribed the privilege as being absolute and not one of preservation and Redemption. Hence it is that St. Thomas insists on two things: (1) that the Mother of God was redeemed, and (2) that the grace of her sanctification was a grace of preservation. And, be it remarked in conclusion, these two points, so much insisted on by St. Thomas, are at the very basis of the Catholic doctrine of the Immaculate Conception.”  (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., [b. 1225 A.D. in Rocca Secca, Naples, Italy - d. Wednesday, March 7, 1274 A.D., in Fossa Nuova, Italy], Doctor of the Church, Summa Theologica, Part III, Question 27.  Editorial Note; emphasis added.)




Proper Determinate Context



Significatio ex adjunctis

Significatio ex adjunctis:

    “Signification from the rest of the Rite and the Prayers around it”.

Note:   Theologically, a Sacrament must always signify what it contains, and always contain what it signifies.

Therefore, a Sacrament's Liturgical Rite, which is composed of very specific Prayers and Rubrics, must contain, within the Sacrament, specific significations with its Prayers and Rubrics which Prayers and Rubrics constitute it to be that specific Sacrament sine qua non, which Prayers and Rubrics make it distinct from all of the Prayers and Rubrics of each of the other Sacraments, as well as the Orders instituted by Jesus Christ in the Sacrament of Holy Orders, from each of these respective Orders, in which each Sacrament's Liturgical Rite must contain its own unique, special, valid, lawful, and required   Proper Determinate Preparations,   Proper Determinate Matter,   Proper Determinate Form of Words,  and the  Proper Determinate Intention    within the  Proper Determinate Context.

An extreme example, for purposes of clarification:

Consider how it has been estimated that there are now about 20,000 Shinto priests in Japan, many of them at the many Shinto shrines in Japan.  Shinto priests perform what would be considered a variety of liturgical rites.  For example, purification rites, called Harae, are a vital part of Shinto.  Some consider Shinto rituals to be the proverbial "lifeblood" of Shinto ritual ceremonies.  So important are these liturgical rites, that new buildings constructed in Japan usually have a Shinto priest perform a ritual ceremony at the groundbreaking ceremony.  Americans might be interested to know that many automobiles made in Japan have been part of the ritual ceremony of a Shinto priest.

Therefore, IF a  validly    Consecrated Roman Catholic Bishop was to incorporate the prayers and rubrics of the 1891 edition of the Roman Catholic Pontificale Romanum for Episcopal Consecration within one of the Shinto liturgical rites, guided by a Shinto priest, rather than during the Catholic Traditional Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, using a pre-1944 edition of the Missale Romanum, would the Bishop-Elect become a  validly    Consecrated Bishop of the Roman Catholic Church?

The answer is NO!  Absolutely NOT!  Why not?  Grossly defective  Significatio ex adjunctis!   In other words, the required valid and lawful  Proper Determinate Context     is not only null and void, but totally absent in this heretical and apostate convoluted reductio ad absurdum.

On the contrary, it is the  Significatio ex adjunctis    which is required, not only of the Pontficale Romanum, but also of the the Catholic Traditional Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, using a pre-1944 edition of the Missale Romanum, because the Pontficale Romanum relies upon the context - used as its framework - of the pre-1944 edition of the Missale Romanum, because the Pontficale Romanum anticipates and/or relies upon certain parts of the Mass as being integral to its liturgical rite - such as the Book of the Gospels being placed upon the neck and shoulders of the Candidate a few moments after the conclusion of the reading of the Gospel by the Mass Celebrant.

There are also the various liturgical items unique to those who receive the Sacrament of the Episcopacy such as the Mitre, Crozier (certain Abbots of major monasteries have allocated the use of the Mitre and Crozier for themselves!), Ring, Gloves, Pectoral Cross, etc., not to mention, at the beginning, of the interrogation of the Bishop-Elect and the two Oaths taken by the Bishop Elect, the Catholic Traditional High/Main Altar    in the center of the Sanctuary, the Chapel, complete with an Altar, for the Bishop Elect, the vesting of the Episcopal Consecrator, who is the Mass Celebrant, in Mass Vestments, and the Bishop-Elect, also vesting in Mass Vestments, who vests at his Altar in his Chapel, and then processes with his retinue to the  High/Main Altar, to begin the Holy Sacrifice of the Catholic Traditional Mass with the Episcopal Consecrator, the Primary Mass Celebrant, with the Prayers at the Foot of the  High/Main Altar, after which the Bishop-Elect processes back to the Altar in his Chapel to continue the Mass, along with his retinue, all of this, while the Episcopal Consecrator, the Primary Mass Celebrant, ascends all of the steps of the High/Main Altar     in order to continue the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass while standing in front of the  High/Main Altar,   upon the predella, and much more, which incorporates the text and rubrics of the Pontificale Romanum with the text and rubrics of the Catholic Traditional Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, including Holy Communion, upon which the Pontificale Romanum relies since the Episcopacy is the fullness of the Sacrament of the Holy Priesthood - the primary function of which is to Offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.  A Roman Catholic Priest is not ordained to function as a pagan Shinto priest, just as a Roman Catholic Bishop is not consecrated to function as a pagan Shinto priest!  Such an insane act is beyond the proverbial contradiction of terms such as a square circleThus, an heretical and apostate convoluted reductio ad absurdum.

To delete the text and rubrics of the Catholic Traditional Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and replace them with the text and rubrics of a pagan Shinto liturgical rite, is a blatant contradiction, and destroys the required  Significatio ex adjunctis     which helps to validate the text and rubrics of the liturgical rite for Episcopal Consecration as it is clearly set forth in the 1891 edition of the Pontificale Romanum, which would make no sense at all if done within the context of a pagan Shinto liturgical rite.  Likewise, an heretical and apostate convoluted reductio ad absurdum.




An Example of Significatio ex adjunctis

When Jesus Christ perfectly instituted the ontological essence and metaphysical essence of the Holy Sacrament of the Episcopacy, Jesus Christ did NOT have any pagan priest or pagan religious leader of any rank involved in any way in His institution of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and in His institution of the Seven Sacraments, including the Holy Sacrament of the Episcopacy which Jesus Christ instituted DURING the institution of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass! In other words, Jesus Christ Himself also instituted the  Significatio ex adjunctis     of the Holy Sacrament of the Episcopacy to be Administered within the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

By the same token, when Jesus Christ, the Eternal High Priest, perfectly instituted the ontological essence and metaphysical essence of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, He did NOT have any "liturgical dancing" nor "liturgical dancers" "perform".

Salome, the Daughter of Herodias, who was married to Philip, the son of Herod, and tetrarch of Trachonitis, after the death of Philip, married Aristobulus, the son of Herod, the brother of Agrippa, whose apparently very seductive dancing before Herod is well know to all, because it ultimately resulted in the martyrdom of Saint John the Baptist, was obviously the most well-known dancer of that time.

Needless to say, Jesus Christ did NOT have Salome, or anyone else, dance during His institution of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, just as the Jewish Priesthood did NOT have any dancers dance in the Temple at Jerusalem or in any of their Synogogues, and most especially never in the Holy of Holies!

In other words, the  Significatio ex adjunctis     of the Holy Sacrifice of the Catholic Traditional Mass has NEVER included any dancers because Jesus Christ did NOT have any liturgical dancers for anything!  IF liturgical dancers, or any other paganistic nonsense, like circus performers, go-go dancers, etc., were to perform before the actual and real     Presence of the Most Blessed Sacrament, it would be a Mortal Sin of Sacrilege commited in the New and Eternal Testament's Holy of Holies which is the Sanctuary of the Roman Catholic Church,!

Today, one too often reads about, or sees on YouTube, such perversions in what used to be Roman Catholic Churches, but which have been turned into Satanic Shrines of anti-Christ so that such entertainers do NOT commit any Mortal Sins of Sacrilege because everything which had been Sacred and Holy, in the Holy of Holies of the Sanctuary of the Roman Catholic Church, when such places were still Roman Catholic Churches, has been thrown out into garbage land-fills, such as the Traditional Holy Altars, Traditional Crucifixes, Traditional Statues, Traditional Stations of the Cross, Traditional Altar Rails, Traditional Mass Vestments, Traditional Mass Missals, Traditional Tabernacles, etc., etc.  The only thing that is still Roman Catholic at such pagan places is the sign on the outside of the church building which is the only thing the anti-Catholic Innovators have NOT changed!

Therefore, since all of these EX-Roman Catholic Church buildings have lost their original consecration, by such Satanic desecrations and profanations, and because all of these dens of devils, a.k.a. EX-Roman Catholic Church church buildings, no longer have anything which is truly Holy, especially in what used to be the Holy Sanctuary, the Holy of Holies of the New and Eternal Covenant, but have replaced all of that with various types of hideous modern art updated, modernized, synthesized 16th Century Protestant memorial supper meal tables, crosses either without Christ, or the Pope Pius XII condemned risen Christ, or Christ the Priest, crucifixes, hideous modern art statues, stained glass windows, etc., plus an emphasis on entertainment, including dance music, secular songs, liturgical dancers, circus performers, magicans, ventroloquiests with their dummies, polka bands, polka dancing, flame throwers, animal acts, acrobats, tapeeze performers, clowns, costumed priests and bishops, go-go dancers, and all other kinds of everything that includes liturgical religious and spiritual debauchery, which are part of the Novus Ordo Missae a.k.a. the NEW mass'Abomination of Desolation,   as well as everything else that is anti-Catholic, concerning which We have included  105 Examples of the NEW Novus Ordo Rite - NOR - messes, a.k.a. masses     to prove to everyone that such things do exist, it is very obvious and clear to those who are not suffering from  affected ignorance     and  gross indifferentism      to actually see, so to speak, the evil that oozes out of the confines of such dens of devils!
 


Altar Rail with white
Communion Cloth not Used
Outside of Mass

Altar Rail with white
Communion Cloth Used For
Communion During Mass
Traditional Altar Rail, a.k.a. Communion Rail

All that remains for most NEW catholics is but a faint memory of what Roman Catholic Churches are supposed to be, places in which to pray during the Holy SACRIFICE of the Catholic Traditional Mass, with those in attendance giving their utmost respect, and showing respect for the great Holy Dignity of the Most Blessed Sacrament, and humbly kneeling for Holy Communion at the Traditional Altar Rail, covered with a clean, white linen cloth the entire length of the Altar Rail, all this and more within the atmosphere of a quiet silence, and a most respectful and quiet decorum of everyone from children to adults - no talking was allowed in Roman Catholic Churches by the Laity at any time, except in the enclosed Confessionals!

So what does one find today, if not during the actual Abomination of Desolation,  certainly at other times in such dens of devils - former Roman Catholic Church buildings - in which the Christ-condemned NEW mass      takes place, the proof for which is to be found on the internet in varius places, and which includes not only many disgusting photos of, at the very best, only partially clad young women, but also videos of young women doing abominable things which can not even be described here they are so Satanic!

All of this filthy garbage, the rot of which stink ascends even to the nostrils of God, are only random examples which so abundantly testify to the fact, that such EX-Roman Catholic Church buildings have really and truly become, dens of iniquity, not only with the Christ-condemned NEW mass,   but also with some perverts who, obviously encouraged by those who teach the heresy that  God is not in the punishment business , a.k.a. If it feels good, do it, do in fact do it in some of these dens of devils - for which you will find the proof in the photos, and even videos, on the internet, which is only a tiny, tiny part of the photographic and video proofs of but a few of the many, many Satanic evils in the   SatanicSynod Vatican 2 church!




Proper Serious Use of the Rite of the Sacrament

For the valid Administration of the Sacraments, it is necessary that the Administrator of the Sacrament accomplish the Sacramental Sign in the proper manner.

The Administrator of the Sacrament is required to use the  Proper Determinate Matter    and the   Proper Determinate Form of Words,  and of unifying them in a unitary Sacramental Sign. The Administrator of the Sacrament is also required to have the Proper Determinate Intention    to do what the Church does within the Proper Determinate Context      of the Rite of that Sacrament.

Because it is much easier to understand what is NOT the proper serious use of the Rite of the Sacrament, than the reverse, here are a few examples of a non-serious use of any Rite of any Sacrament, including the Sacrament of the Episcopacy, including "actor portrals".

A review of who does what during the Administration of the Sacrament.  In other words, this is really a "class", whether a formal class in a school or Seminary classroom, or an informal class in which the instructor, usually a Priest, explains at least some of the rubrics and prayers that will be used during the Administration of that specific Sacrament.

Most of the Married Laity are familiar with this because the Priest who married them had them attend the "practice".  This was when the Priest required the bridal couple and their attendants to come to the church some days or a week or two before their wedding so that everyone would know what they were supposed to do and when and how to do it.  This is a standard procedure in most parishes.

Historically, this was also the way most Priests instructed Altar Boys in how to correctly serve Mass, not only helping them with the correct pronunciation of their Latin responses, but also teaching them the rubrics they were to follow during the Mass, and also practicing in the church itself, most especially the rubrics of who does what when and where at the  High/Main Altar      and in the Sanctuary and at the Communion Rail, at the Sedelia, etc., etc.  The same was true for Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament, all of the Holy Week rubrics which are used only on Palm Sunday, Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday.

The correct use of the Rite of any Sacrament, including the Sacrament of the Episcopacy, can also include a portral of a Sacrament as part of a theatrical stage play, or on the set of a movie or a television program, or in other places such as a classroom, which can be done for various non-Sacramental purposes, just as the so-called "dry Mass" can be used under such circumstances, or for educational purposes.

For example, in the past, at some of the so-called Traditional Catholic Conventions, We understand that one Priest would go through the entire Mass for educational purposes as another Priest would explain to the Laity who were present the meaning, not only of each vestment as the other Priest vested for the dry Mass, but also at each part of the dry Mass, sometimes giving a brief explanation of some of the rubrics and prayers as well.

It is called a dry Mass because there is no Matter involved, i.e. the dry Mass Priest does NOT use a host, or wine, or water.  Of course, the Form is not spoken by the dry Mass priest, but by the other Priest who is narrating and explaining the Mass, just as the Intention is likewise absent.

In Roman Catholic Seminaries in the early part of the 1900's, this dry Mass was sometimes used to instruct future Priests in the proper way to Offer the Catholic Traditional Mass, along with an explantion of the various parts of the Missale Romanum, etc.

This same procedure is sometimes followed by the Episcopal Consecrator who usually designates one or several of his Priests to train each Bishop-Elect in the correct procedures to follow, including what to do, how to do it, and when to do it.

Those Bishops who have never Administered the Sacrament of the Episcopacy, as well as the Assistant Bishops, before doing it the first time, must take the time necessary to learn to correct way to do it.  The Episcopal Consecrator frequently does this with his Master of Ceremonies because the Master of Ceremonies needs to know what everyone is required to do and how and when to do it, including the Episcopal Consecrator.

The time and effort involved in doing these things obviously prove that the Episcopal Consecrator is very serious about validly Administering the Sacrament of the Episcopacy, otherwise it would not be necessary to spend any time in the study, not only of each rubric (and sometimes in the practice of each rubric), but also reading over all of the text as well, including the actual Prayers, including the entire Form, but most especially  that part of the Form required for validity per Pope Pius XII.




Proper Serious Recipient of the Sacrament

Only a person in the wayfaring state can  validly      receive a Sacrament. In other words, a person who is physically dead can not receive a Sacrament.  However, the Sacrament of Extreme Unction can be Administered to a dead person IF the Soul of that dead person has not yet left the body of that person which means that, theologically speaking, the dead person is not considered "dead" until after the Soul leaves the body.

From a practical Pastoral concern for the deceased, because there is usually no absolute way to determine IF the Soul of a dead person is still in the body, the Sacrament of Extreme Unction is usually Administered (conditionally) IF such a person has died within a short time period before then.

In regard to a person who is actually known to be physically alive, the laws of the Church apply concerning the worthiness of the Recipient of the Sacrament, which varies according to the Sacrament.  Only a person who has  validly     received the Sacrament of Baptism can  validly     and lawfully receive at least some of the other Sacraments.




Proper Determinate Intention of the Recipient of the Sacrament

For the  validity      of the Sacraments, in the case of adult recipients, the necessary Proper Determinate Intention of the Recipient of the Sacrament to actually receive the Sacrament is necessary.  This most definitely applies to the Sacrament of the Episcopacy.

A Sacrament received without the necessary Proper Determinate Intention of the Recipient of the Sacrament to actually receive the Sacrament, or which is conferred on a person against his will, is invalid.

For example, We recall the somewhat "famous" case that happened many years ago, and which became an example used by many Seminary Priest-Instructors many long years ago now, especially those who taught classes in Theology as was the case with my Seminary Priest-Instructor who related this case to my fellow Seminarians and myself, when I was in my first year in the Theologate.

A Theologate is a Seminary in which Theology is taught to Seminarians.  A Scholasticate is a Seminary in which Scholastic Philosophy is taught to Seminarians and which, in many Seminaries, consists of four years, followed by four years in the Theologate.  Sometimes both are combined in the same building, but sometimes each is located in a different geographical area.  For members of Religious Orders or Religious Congregations, Seminarians first begin as Postulants for a certain time period (depending on the Order/Congregation) of 6 to 12 months, followed by a canonical year (366 days) in the Novitiate, and then 4 years in the Scholasticate and 4 years in the Theologate and after Priestly Ordination, frequently followed by a year of Pastoral Theology.
During the chanting of the Litany of Saints, the Deacons who were to be Ordained Priests, were, as usual, lying prostrate on the floor.  One of the Deacons decided (at least at that time) that he did not want to be Ordained a Priest and verbally said this to one of the Deacons next to him.  Since this Deacon did not want to make a scene, so to speak, he did not get up and leave the church, but remained and went through the entire ceremony, during which the Bishop "ordained" him to the Priesthood as per the Catholic Traditional Pontificale Romanum.

However, after everything was over and everyone was back in the Sacristry unvesting, this particular Deacon went to the Ordaining Bishop and told this Bishop that he had changed his mind and did not want to be Ordained a Priest (at least not at that time - whether he ever changed his mind, our Priest-Instructor did not know).

The Bishop ask him to repeat what he had just said, not only to himself, but to some of the Assistants to the Bishop, to be witnesses of this statement.  This was done.  Then the Bishop asked IF this Deacon had any proof for what he had just said.  This Deacon said that he did and told everyone the name of the newly Ordained Priest who was lying next to him during the Litany of the Saints and how he verbally said that he had changed his mind and did not want to be Ordained a Priest.

The Bishop called forth the witness to this, the newly Ordained Priest, who verified that yes, this is what he had heard this Deacon tell him.  Then the Ordaining Bishop said that since this Deacon did not have the necessary intention to receive the Sacrament of the Priesthood, even though this Deacon had gone through the entire ceremony, as had all of the other Deacons, who were now newly Ordained Priest, this Deacon was, therefore, still a Deacon and not a validly Ordained Priest due to defect of the required  Proper Determinate Intention.

The primary requirement of the Bishop-Elect to be able to validly and lawfully receive the Sacrament of the Episcopacy, is that the Bishop-Elect has previously validly and lawfully received the Sacrament of the Holy Priesthood from a validly Consecrated Bishop.



Part Two
The Sacrament of the Episcopacy




The Sacrament of the Order of the Episcopacy is a Sacrament

The Council of Trent declared that Bishops, as the successors of the Apostles, belong by excellence (praecipue) to the Hierarchical State, and that the Episcopal Consecrator, during the Episcopal Consecration of a Bishop, does not pronounce in vain these words: Accipe Spiritum Sanctum.


Council of Trent, Session 22, July 15, 1563


Chapter 4. The Ecclesiastical Hierarchy and Ordination

960.  But since in the Sacrament of Orders, as also in Baptism and in Confirmation, a Sign is imprinted [canon 4], which can neither be effaced nor taken away, justly does the Holy Synod condemn the opinion of those who assert that the Priests of the New Testament have only a temporary power, and that those at one time rightly Ordained can again become Laymen, if they do not exercise the ministry of the word of God [canon 1 ].

But if anyone should affirm that all Christians without distinction are Priests of the New Testament, or that they are all endowed among themselves with an equal Spiritual power, he seems to do nothing else than disarrange [canon 6] the Ecclesiastical Hierarchy, which is as an army set in array [cf. Canticle of Canticles 6:3], just as if, contrary to the teaching of Blessed Paul, all were Apostles, all Prophets, all Evangelists, all Pastors, all Doctors [cf. 1 Corinthians 12:29; Ephesians 4:11].

Accordingly, the Holy Synod declares that besides the other Ecclesiastical grades, the Bishops who have succeeded the Apostles, belong in a special way to this Hierarchial Order, and have been placed (as the same Apostle says) by the Holy Spirit to rule the Church of God [Acts 20:29], and that they are superior to Priests, and Administer the Sacrament of Confirmation, Ordain Ministers of the Church, and can perform many other Offices over which those of an inferior Order have no power [canon 7].

The Holy Synod teaches, furthermore, that in the Ordination of Bishops, Priests, and of other Orders, the consent, or call, or authority of the people, or of any secular power or magistrate is not so required for the   validity      of the Ordination; but rather it decrees that those who are called and instituted only by the people, or by the civil power or magistrate and proceed to exercise these Offices, and that those who by their own temerity take these Offices upon themselves, are not Ministers of the Church, but are to be regarded as thieves and robbers, who have not entered by the door [cf. John 10:1; canon 8].

These are the matters which in general it seemed well to the Sacred Council to teach to the faithful of Christ regarding the Sacrament of Order. It has, however, resolved to condemn the contrary in definite and appropriate Canons in the following manner, so that all, making use of the Rule of Faith, with the assistance of Christ, may be able to recognize more easily the Catholic  Truth  in the midst of the darkness of so many errors, and may adhere to it.

964.  Canon 4. If anyone says that by Sacred Ordination the Holy Spirit is not imparted, and that therefore the Bishops say in vain: Accipe Spiritum Sanctum (Receive the Holy Spirit); or that by it a Character is not imprinted, or that he who has once been a Priest can again become a Layman: let him be anathema    [cf. n. 852].     (Denzinger,  # 960 and # 964; emphasis added.)




The Sacrament of the Order of the Episcopacy
Is an Order Above the Order of the Priesthood

“On the contrary, A power is so much the higher according as it extends to more things. Now the Priestly power, according to Dionysius (Eccl. Hier. v), extends only to cleansing and enlightening, whereas the Episcopal power extends both to this and to perfecting. Therefore the Episcopal should be above the Priestly power.  Further, the Divine ministries should be more orderly than human ministries. Now the order of human ministries requires that in each office there should be one person to preside, just as a general is placed over soldiers. Therefore there should also be appointed over Priests one who is the Chief Priest, and this is the Bishop. Therefore the Episcopal should be above the Priestly power.” (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., Summa Theologica, Supplement, Question 40, Article 4, On the Contrary”; emphasis added.)

Hence it is clear that it behooves the Episcopal to be above the Priestly power”. (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., Summa Theologica, Supplement, Question 40, Article 4, Conclusion; emphasis added.)

“In another way Order may be considered as an Office in relation to certain Sacred actions: and thus since in Hierarchical actions a Bishop has in relation to the Mystical Body a higher power than the Priest, the Episcopate is an Order”. (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., Summa Theologica, Supplement, Question 40, Article 5, Conclusion; emphasis added.)




The Sacrament of the Order of the Episcopacy Requires
It to be Administered by a Validly Consecrated Bishop

“A faithful saying: if a man desire the Office of a Bishop, he desireth a good work.”  (1 Timothy 3:1).

Episcopacy is a true Sacrament, in which by the Sacrament of Orders, i.e., by Consecration, there is conferred the fullness of the Priesthood. It therefore completes and perfects the Sacerdotal Power, and thus is an Order distinct from the Priesthood; it confers power to Ordain and Consecrate, to Administer Confirmation, to Consecrate things destined for Divine Worship, and with legitimate jurisdiction to rule a portion of the Church - called a Diocese under the Roman Pontiff.  Pohle-Preuss, ‘The Sacraments’, IV, St. L., 1920.”  (Conde B. Pallen, Ph.D., LL.D., John J. Wynne, S.J., S.T.D., et Alii, “The New Catholic Dictionary”, 1929, Imprimatur: Patrick Cardinal Hayes, Tuesday, October 1, 1929, Episcopacy, p. 340-b; emphasis added.)

It is De Fide that the Ordinary Administer of all of the Grades of Holy Orders is only a  Validly     Consecrated Bishop.  This includes the Order of the Episcopacy.

This fact is presumed, not only in the Liturgical Rite for Episcopal Consecration in the Pontificale Romanum, but also in other sources.

For example:  The lawful Administration of the Sacrament of the Episcopacy requires that it be Administered by three Bishops:

Episcopus consecrator debet alios duos Episcopos adhibere, qui sibi in consecratione assistant, nisi hac super re a Sede Apostolica dispensatum fuerit.

The Episcopal Consecrator should be assisted by two other Bishops, when Consecrating a Bishop, unless an Apostolic dispensation has been granted. (Code of Canon Law # 954.  N.B.:  This is not a literal translation.)

However, only one Bishop is required for the  Valid      Administration of the Sacrament of the Episcopacy because each
individual Bishop possesses the full power of Ordination.

In the 1944 Apostolic Constitution Episcopalis Consecrationis of Pope Pius XII, one finds:

.....et ipsi Consecratores effecti proindeque Conconsecratores deinceps vocandi.
In other words, both of the two Assisting Bishops are not merely witnesses, but are called Co-Consecrators.

These two Episcopal Co-Consecrators are required to properly form the intention of Consecrating and of Administering the Sacrament of the Episcopacy conjointly with the Episcopal Consecrator, not only by imposing their hands conjointly with the Episcopal Consecrator, but also by pronouncing the prayer of Consecration (softly) together with the Episcopal Consecrator - the Consecration Preface for the Order of the Episcopacy.




Part Three
That Which Makes the Sacrament of the Episcopacy
A  REAL, True, andValidSacrament


Before a person can determine the difference between REAL    Catholic Priests and  REAL    Catholic Bishops, on the one hand, and  FAKE    Catholic Priests and  FAKE    Catholic Bishops, on the other hand, first it is necessary to know what it is that actually makes REAL    Catholic Priests and  REAL  Catholic Bishops, REAL, TRUE,  and  Valid     Catholic Priests and  REALTRUE,   and  Valid     Catholic Bishops.

The ultimate answer as to what it is that makes REAL    Catholic Priests and  REAL    Catholic Bishops,   REAL,   TRUE,  and  Valid     Catholic Priests and REALTRUE,  and   Valid      Catholic Bishops - is the Sacrament of the Episcopacy.

Logic then requires that a person must know what it is that makes the Sacrament of the Episcopacy a Sacrament, in contradistinction to all other ceremonies which are, in reality, empty ceremonies, not one of which is a  Valid     and   true  Sacrament.

For example, why is it that the Sacrament of the Episcopacy is not actually administered and otherwise effected by actors who correctly portray the administration of the Sacrament of the Episcopacy, whether on a theatrical stage, or on a TV program, or in a movie, or anything similar?
 

Since, therefore, the sanctification of man is in the power of God Who sanctifies, it is not for man to decide what things should be used for his sanctification, but this is determined by Divine institution” (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., [b. 1225 A.D. in Rocca Secca, Naples, Italy - d. Wednesday, March 7, 1274 A.D., in Fossa Nuova, Italy], Doctor of the Church, Summa Theologica, Part III, Question 60, Article 5, Body).

The  Proper Determinate Form of Words    is an essential part of the   validity      of any Sacrament, which includes the Sacrament of the Episcopacy:
“As stated above (A. 6, ad 2), in the Sacraments the words are as the Form and sensible things are as the Matter.  Now in all things composed of matter and form, the determining principle is on the part of the Form, which is as it were the end and terminus of the Matter.  Consequently, for  the being of a thing     [i.e. the ontological essence of a thing]  the need of a determinate Form     is prior to  the need of determinate Matter;  for  determinate Matter     is needed that it may be adapted to the determinate Form.  Since, therefore, in the Sacraments determinate sensible things are required which are as the Sacramental Matter, much more is there need in them of a determinate Form of Words.”  (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., Summa Theologica, Part III, Question 60, Article 7; emphasis added.)
Therefore, the first requirement is that the Sacrament of the Episcopacy must contain the exact same ontological essence, which is the being of a thing, and also the metaphysical essencewhich Jesus Christ gave it when He personally instituted this Sacrament, which is not only the specific outward sign instituted by Christ to give Sanctifying Grace, which is true  of all of the Seven Sacraments, but also the special Sacramental Grace,  i.e. an unique Grace of the Episcopacy as an unique Sacrament, completely distinct from each of all of the other special Sacrament Graces which are unique to each one of the other Seven Sacraments, and which is also unique to this specific Order within the Sacrament of Holy Orders itself, thereby making it unique in terms of its special Sacramental Grace which is distinct from each of the other Orders within the Sacrament of Holy Orders itself.

On the contrary, the 1968 version of the NEW Roman Pontifical   of the SatanicSynod Vatican 2 church     was made up by  automatically excommunicated Modernist Heretics   and by   automatically excommunicated NEW Theology Theologian Heretics,     which  anti-Catholic Innovators    and  anti-Catholic Infiltrators     obviously wanted to use to totally destroy the Catholic Traditional Mass by making sure that future priests and bishops would be only laymen,  hence, one example of Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi, a.k.a. Legem Credendi Lex Statuit Supplicandi,   which We have proven in part by the examination and comparison of the NEW with the Old,  so that, in effect, the NEW has produced only virtual actors wearing the vestments of priests and bishops, with no Sacramental Priestly/Episcopal Powers of any kind, not only to administer any Sacrament, but also with no Priestly Powers to offer a   Valid      Mass.

Thus came about Tolle Missam, Tolle Ecclesiam: take away the Mass, take away the Church; i.e. when you destroy the Catholic Traditional Mass, you automatically destroy the Catholic Church!

This is exactly what the Satanic clones of anti-Christ did who DESTROYED the Sacrament of the Episcopacy in 1968 with their FAKEandinvalidRoman Pontifical  because the Catholic Traditional Sacrament of the Episcopacy had to be destroyed BEFORE the Innovators (anti-Catholic Infiltrators; Modernist Heretics; NEW Theology Theologian Heretics) could effectively and totally destroy the Catholic Traditional Mass, which would result in the ultimate destruction of the Catholic Church:  Tolle Missam, Tolle Ecclesiam.
Although many Catholic Traditional authors have focused on the destruction of the Catholic Traditional Mass by the NEW mass, the NOR - Novus Ordo Rite, a.k.a. Novus Ordo Missae, which the heretic and apostate, P-6 made effective the first Sunday of Advent in 1969, the ultimate more deadly weapon to totally destroy the Catholic Traditional Mass, and thus the Catholic Church, was the 1968 Roman Pontifical which destroyed the Catholic Traditional Sacrament of the Episcopacy!
These two Satanic anti-Christ liturgical books of 1968 and 1969 are two examples of the rotten fruits of the Heresy of Modernism and the Heresy of the NEW Theology Theologians, vis-à-vis an heretical, anti-Catholic:  Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi, a.k.a. Legem Credendi Lex Statuit Supplicandi   - demonically intended and inspired by the Satanic clones of anti-Christ to ultimately destroy the Catholic Church:  Tolle Missam, Tolle Ecclesiam.
However, none of them had any  real power, authority, or jurisdiction to change, or to make up, the Liturgical Rite for the Administration of the Sacrament of the Episcopacy in any way because:
"The power of a Sacrament is from God alone, as We have shown above (A. 1; 62, A 1). Therefore, God alone can institute a Sacrament" (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P. [b. 1225 A.D. in Rocca Secca, Naples, Italy - d. 1274 A.D. in Fossa Nuova, Italy], Summa Theologica, Part III, Question 64, Article 2).



Prophetic Warnings

Our Blessed Mother warned Catholics about the NEW sacraments - which would include the    invalidand illegal 1968 rite for the ordination of deacons, priests, and bishops, by heretical  Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi, a.k.a. Legem Credendi Lex Statuit Supplicandi        as the result of the Heresy of Modernism and the Heresy of the NEW Theology Theologians, when she appeared to Marie-Julie Jahenny [b. at Blain, Brittany - West France - on Tuesday, February 12, 1850 - d. at La Fraudais, a short distance Northeast of Blain, Brittany on Tuesday, March 4, 1941] on Tuesday, May 10, 1904 and described the NEW clergy and their liturgy when she:

announced the “dispersion of the Pastors” by the church herself;  true     Pastors, who will be replaced by others [other pastors] formed by Hell:  “... NEW preachers of NEW sacraments, NEW temples [churches], NEW baptisms, NEW confraternities.”
This means that back on Tuesday, May 10, 1904, Our Blessed Mother warned Catholics, through Marie-Julie Jahenny, about the NEW 1968 Roman Pontifical made up by pastors formed by Hell!

This is exactly what the Satanic clones of anti-Christ did who DESTROYED the Sacrament of the Episcopacy in 1968 with
their FAKEandinvalidRoman Pontifical  - an example of   invalid        and heretical  Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi, a.k.a. Legem Credendi Lex Statuit Supplicandi.

Note: The same is also   true  of the Liturgical Rite for the Offering of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.  The anti-Catholic Innovators and anti-Catholic Infiltrators did NOT have any  real        power, authority, or jurisdiction to change, or to make up, the Liturgical Rite for Offering the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.  Another example of an heretical, anti-Catholic misuse of  Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi, a.k.a. Legem Credendi Lex Statuit Supplicandi.

As a matter of fact, God the Son, the Eternal High Priest, Jesus Christ, prophecized what was happening, and would continue to happen, to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass which He Himself had instituted:

I give you a warning. The disciples who are not of My Gospel are now working hard to remake according to their ideas, and under the influence of the enemy of Souls [Satan], a mass that contains words which are odious in My Sight. When the fatal hour arrives, where the faith of My Priests are put to the test, it will be these texts that will be celebrated.”  (Prophecy of Jesus Christ to the great Catholic Mystic, Marie-Julie Jahenny [b. at Blain, Brittany - West France - on Tuesday, February 12, 1850 - d. at La Fraudais, a short distance Northeast of Blain, Brittany on Tuesday, March 4, 1941] in an apparition on Saturday, November 27, 1902,  about the Satanic  NEW mass!  Emphasis added.)
By the Grace of God, this destruction was not 100% complete because the Catholic Church still exists, with  Valid        Catholic Priests and  Valid        Catholic Bishops today, in various countries around the world, in what are the current day Catacombs!

For example:


Patriarch Kyr Josyf Cardinal Slipyj

“...Catholic Ukrainians, who have sacrificed mountains of bodies and shed rivers of their blood for the Catholic Faith...even now are undergoing a very terrible persecution, but what is worse, they are defended by no one... Our Catholic Faithful, prohibited from celebrating the Liturgy and receiving the Sacraments, must descend into the Catacombs.  Thousands and thousands of the Faithful, of Priests and Bishops have been thrown into prison and deported to the polar regions of Siberia.  Now, however, because of negotiations and diplomacy, Ukrainian Catholics, who as martyrs and confessors suffered so much, are being thrown aside as inconvenient witnesses of past evils.”  (Patriarch Kyr Josyf Cardinal Slipyj [b. Zazdrist, Wednesday, February 17, 1892 - d. Rome, Friday, September 7, 1984], VISTI Y RYMU, Rik 9, nos. 16-17, Rome, December 1971.)


Proper Pontificale Used For Episcopal Consecration

The ultimate answer to how to determine the difference between REALCatholic Priests and Bishops and   FAKECatholic Priests and Bishops is the answer to this question:

Which Pontificale was used for the Episcopal Consecration?
IF the Roman Pontifical of 1968 was used, either for the ordination of a certain Priest, or for the ordination of a certain Bishop, you automatically know that such a priest and/or bishop is NOT a   validly       ordained priest and/or bishop.
 

Pontificale Romanum,
1891 Edition of
The Ancient Roman Rite
of The Catholic Church

Roman Pontifical
NEW 1968 Version of
the Novus Ordo Rite of the
SatanicSynod
Vatican 2 church

Proof for this statement is found in the 77 point comparisons of the 1891 edition of the Catholic Traditional Pontificale Romanum of the Roman Catholic Church with the 1968 version of the NEW Roman Pontifical of the  SatanicSynod Vatican 2 church, which is on Our web page at:   http://www.traditionalcatholicmass.com/home-m55.html

Said another way, the 1891 edition of the Catholic Traditional Pontificale Romanum of the Roman Catholic Church contains a valid and lawful Liturgical Rite for Episcopal Consecration because it contains all of the elements needed which constitute the valid and lawful ontological essence and the valid and lawful metaphysical essence of the Holy Sacrament of the Episcopacy which were perfectly, completely, and unchangeably instituted by the Eternal High Priest, Jesus Christ, the Divine Logos.

By the same token, the 1968 version of the NEW Roman Pontifical   of the SatanicSynod Vatican 2 church     does NOT contain a Valid       and lawful Liturgical Rite for Episcopal Consecration because it does NOT contain any of the actual elements needed which constitute the  Valid        and lawful ontological essence and the valid and lawful metaphysical essence of the Holy Sacrament of the Episcopacy which were perfectly, completely, and unchangeably instituted by the Eternal High Priest, Jesus Christ, the Divine Logos.

For example, that part of the Form which is required, which is essential, for  validity,     was very clearly given by Pope Pius XII in his Apostolic Constitution “Sacramentum Ordinis”, On the Sacrament of Order, First Sunday of Advent, November 30, 1947.  Pope Pius XII declared that the following words of this Preface of Episcopal Consecration (the Proper Determinate Form of Words       for Episcopal Consecration), are essential and therefore are required for validity,    and are to be found in  the 1891 edition of the Roman Catholic Pontificale Romanum:

“Comple in Sacerdote Tuo Ministerii tui summam, et ornamentis totius glorificationis instructum Cœlestis unguenti rore santifica.”
“Perfect in Thy Priest the fullness of Thy Ministry and, clothing him in all the ornaments of spiritual glorification, Sanctify him with the Heavenly anointing.”
Whereas,  the 1968 version of the NEW Roman Pontifical   of the  SatanicSynod Vatican 2 church,   which is on Our web page at: http://www.traditionalcatholicmass.com/home-m55.html, uses this per se       invalidform  instead:
Et nunc effunde super hunc Electum eam virtutem, quae a te est, Spiritum principalem, quem dedisti dilecto Filio tuo Iesu Christo, quem ipse donavit sanctis Apostolis, qui constituerunt Ecclesiam per singula loca ut sanctuarium tuum, in gloriam et laudem indeficientem nominis tui.

So now pour out upon this chosen one the power that is from you, the governing Spirit whom you gave to your beloved Son, Jesus Christ, the Spirit given by him to his holy apostles, who founded the Church in every place to be your temple for the unceasing glory and praise of your name.

This blatantly  invalidanti-form viciously violates the six requirements for the validityof the  Proper Determinate Form of Words,  the maxim of which principle requirement is thusly aphorised:
“Nil formae demas, nil addas, nil variabis, transmutare cave, corrumpere verba, morari.”    “Omit nothing of the Form, add nothing, change nothing;  Beware of transmuting, corrupting, or interrupting the words.” (Msgr. Jean Marie Hervé [1881-1958], “Manuale Theologiae Dogmaticae”, Paris: Berche et Pagis, 1934; emphasis added).
The  automatically excommunicated Modernist Heretics and the automatically excommunicated NEW Theology Theologians    have no historical, ecclesiastical, or even theological basis for their blatant heretical innovation with which they used the principle of  Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi, a.k.a. Legem Credendi Lex Statuit Supplicandi     for their own anti-Catholic agenda as part of their Satanic hope to destroy the Catholic Church.


Today, More and More Roman-Collared LAYMEN
Are Leaving their Parishes Because They Now Realize that
None of them Have any Spiritual and Sacramental Power
To Offer Mass and to Administer the Sacraments!

Roman-Collared LAYMEN also have the very real and terrible fear they will go to Hell because their fake and phony “sacraments” never had any power to prevent the Souls of their trusting Parishioners from going to Hell because these fake and phony priests and bishops have never had any power to Absolve from any sins, including Mortal Sins!

It’s True! I’m leaving! They lied about my “ordination”The 1968 Roman Pontifical, with which I was “ordained”,  IS NOT    VALID!  So, I am only a LAYMANNOT a PriestI can no longer live this LIE of    invalid    “masses” and   invalidx “sacraments”!  How many are burning in Hell because I have no power to “Offer Holy Mass”, and to “forgive Mortal Sins”!

Likewise, Roman-Collared LAYMEN, "ordained" with the 1968, or later editions of, the Roman Pontifical, who think and act as though they really are priests and bishops and popes. are NOT able to Offer a lawful and valid   Catholic Traditional Mass as it was before 1944 in the Roman Catholic Church, nor can they Administer any Sacraments of the Roman Catholic Church for the same reason - because of the immutable law of   Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi   -  which means ALL Roman-Collared LAYMEN, "ordained" with the 1968, or later editions of, the Roman Pontifical, ARE de facto members, NOT of the Roman Catholic Church, but of the NEW World Order of anti-Christ's Satanicx Synod Vatican 2 pseudo-church.

This also means that many Souls of faithful, sincere, trusting, but ignorant Catholics, have gone to Hell because of the  illegal and
   invalid pseudo-masses of these Roman-Collared LAYMEN,

(which deprived the Souls of faithful, sincere, trusting, but ignorant Catholics, of Sanctifying Grace  by which  to desire to obtain Absolution for their Mortal Sins in the Roman Catholic Sacrament of Penance)
and the illegal and invalid  pseudo-sacraments of these Roman-Collared LAYMEN, such as the per se invalid  and  illegal "rite of reconciliation" found in the NEW World Order of anti-Christ's   Satanicx Synod Vatican 2 pseudo-churches.

Especially sad are the Souls in Hell whose Mortal Sins were unable to be absolved in the Roman Catholic Sacrament of Penance

(N.B.:  The anti-Catholic, NEW World Order of anti-Christ's Satanic     Synod Vatican 2 pseudo-churchs'  "rite of reconciliation" is NOT a Sacrament, but a blatant demonic lie and deception!),
before their deaths, because such Roman-Collared LAYMEN have no Power of any kind:  1) to Offer any Masses; and, 2) to Administer any Sacraments, including the Roman Catholic Sacrament of Penance.



Pope Pius XII Also Teaches:

51. Holiness begins from Christ; and Christ is its cause. For no act conducive to salvation can be performed unless it proceeds from Him as from its supernatural source. “Without me,” He says, “you can do nothing” (John 15:5).   If we grieve and do penance for our sins, if, with filial fear and hope, we turn again to God, it is because He is leading us. Grace and glory flow from His inexhaustible fullness. Our Savior is continually pouring out His Gifts of Counsel, Fortitude, Fear and Piety, especially on the leading members of His [Mystical] Body, so that the whole Body may grow ever more and more in holiness and in integrity of life. When the Sacraments of the Church are administered by External Rite, it is He [Christ] who produces their effect in Souls.  (Cf. Saint Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologica, Part III, Question 64, Article 3.).”   (Pope Pius XII, Encyclical “Mystici Corporis Christi”, On the Mystical Body of Christ, Tuesday, June 29, 1943; emphasis added.)

“On the contrary, Augustine (Isidore, Etym. vi) says: ‘The Divine power in the Sacraments works inwardly in producing their salutary effect’.  Now the Divine power is Christ’s as God, not as man. Therefore Christ produces the inward Sacramental effect, not as man, but as God”.  (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., [b. 1225 A.D. in Rocca Secca, Naples, Italy - d. Wednesday, March 7, 1274 A.D. in Fossa Nuova, Italy], Doctor of the Church, Summa Theologica, Part III, Question 64, Article 3, On the Contrary; emphasis added).



The Sacrament of the Episcopacy is Administered by a   Valid Bishop

The details have already been given above at:

The Sacrament of the Order of the Episcopacy Requires It to be Administered by a Validly Consecrated Bishop




A Brief Summary of the Essence of the Sacrament of the Episcopacy

Therefore, the first requirement is that the Sacrament of the Episcopacy must contain the exact same ontological essence, which is the being of a thing, and also the metaphysical essence, which Jesus Christ gave it when He personally instituted this Sacrament, which is not only the specific outward sign instituted by Christ to give Sanctifying Grace, which is true    of all of the Seven Sacraments, the genus,   so to speak, of the Seven Sacraments, but also the special Sacramental Grace, i.e. in the case of the Sacrament of the Episcopacy, an unique Grace of the Episcopacy as an unique and distinct Sacrament, completely distinct from each of all of the other six special and unique Sacrament Graces, thereby making the Sacrament of the Episcopacy unique in terms of its very own special Sacramental Grace which is distinct from the other Major Sacramental Orders, namely the Sub-Deaconate,  Deaconate, and Priesthood.


Pontificale Romanum, 1891 Edition
of The Ancient Roman Rite
of The Catholic Church

The ultimate efficient cause (that which can produce its own effect) of all of the Sacraments, including the Holy Episcopacy, is the Uncaused Cause - God, in the Person of the Eternal High Priest, Jesus Christ, Who functions as the Primary Instrumental Cause, but Who works through the Secondary Instrumental Cause - a   validly     Consecrated Bishop of the Catholic Church who is not an automatically excommunicated heretic, and who is not an apostate, and who thus would no longer be an actual member of the Mystical Body of Christ which is the Catholic Church - and which  Valid      and lawful Secondary Instrumental Cause makes a serious, proper, and correct use of the entire Liturgical Rite as found in an authentic edition of the liturgical ritual book of the Catholic Church which Bishops use, which is called the “Pontifical Romanum”, which book contains the Valid       ontological essence of this Sacrament, and which book is part of the Proper Determinate Preparations of the Proximate Matter Which Do NOT Become theProper Determinate Matter of a Sacrament,   the text and rubrics of which provide the Secondary Instrumental Cause - a   validly    Consecrated Bishop of the Catholic Church - to  validly,  correctly, and properly Administer this Sacrament to a  Valid        and lawful Recipient who has not placed any or all blockages - most especially direment impediments - to the reception of this Sacrament, which is thereupon Administered by the Episcopal Consecrator  -  ex opere operato     -  which is provided by, the context of the Rite itself, and which  Proper Determinate Context     supplies the necessary conditions and specific circumstances within which the ontological essence and metaphysical essence are contained, and which Proper Determinate Context      is known as “Significatio ex adjunctis”,  a.k.a. the complete and entire  Valid       and lawful Liturgical Rite composed of both the required texts and rubrics, within a pre-1944 Catholic Traditional edition of the “Pontifical Romanum”  which “Significatio ex adjunctis”,   to some extent, makes use of part of the “Significatio ex adjunctis”   as it is found in a pre-1944 Missale Romanum, and with which a  pre-1944 Catholic Traditional edition of the “Pontifical Romanum” works simultaneously  (hand-in-glove, so to speak), especially in those sections which concern those specific conditions and specific circumstances provided by the pre-1944 Missale Romanum, such as these:


pre-1944 Missale Romanum

1a) Where the   “Significatio ex adjunctis”     of a pre-1944 Missale Romanum (rubrics and text of the prayers) begins the Holy Sacrifice of the Catholic Traditional Mass with the Prayers at the Foot of the  High/Main Altar;



Roman Catholic High Altar, a.k.a. Main Altar

1b)  Where the  Significatio ex adjunctis”      (rubrics and text of the prayers) of a pre-1944 Catholic Traditional edition of the Pontifical Romanum requires that the Episcopal Consecrator and the Bishop Elect both stand next to each other at the foot of the High/Main Altar   and both simultaineously, together in unison, begin the Mass with the Prayers at the Foot of the  High/Main Altar, which actual rubrics and text of these prayers are NOT in the Pontifical Romanum, but are in the Missale Romanum.

2a) Where the“Significatio ex adjunctis”   (rubrics and text of the prayers) of a pre-1944 Missale Romanum concludes the Prayers at the Foot of the  High/Main Altar     and require the Mass Celebrant to ascend the  High/Main Altar     Steps - while reciting certain Prayers - up to the Predella

(the floor on which the Altar itself sits and which floor extends outward for a certain distance in front of the High/Main Altar    and on both sides of the  High/Main Altar,   so that the Mass Celebrant has a solid floor, above the level of the floor of the Sanctuary, on which to stand, along with the various Altar Ministers - depending on circumstances, which could include not only Altar Boys, but also others such as Deacon[s] and Sub-Deacon[s] of the Mass, an ArchPriest, Master of Ceremonies, etc.)
and then kisses the  High/Main Altar     and proceeds to the Epistle side of the  High/Main Altar      to begin to read the Introit Prayer in the Missale Romanum.

2b)  Where the  Significatio ex adjunctis”   (rubrics and text of the prayers) of a pre-1944 Pontifical Romanum requires the  Bishop-Elect and his two Assistant Bishops, with their retinue, to go in Solemn Procession to the Chapel of the Bishop-Elect who continues the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass at the Altar in his Chapel after first ascending the Altar Steps to this Altar, and then, upon coming up to this Altar, the Bishop-Elect then kisses the Altar and proceeds to the Epistle side of the Altar to begin to read the Introit Prayer in the Missale Romanum, which actual rubrics and text of the Introit Prayer are NOT in the Pontifical Romanum, but are in the Missale Romanum.

This same procedure is continued of using the actual rubrics and text of the Prayers which are NOT in the Pontifical Romanum, but are in the Missale Romanum, which is to say the  “Significatio ex adjunctis”     of the Missale Romanum throughout the rest of the entire Mass, except for those places during the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass where the Significatio ex adjunctis”   (rubrics and text of the prayers) of a pre-1944 Pontifical Romanum take precedence because of the requirements of the Rite for the Administration of the Sacrament of the Episcopacy during which the Episcopal Consecrator, the Bishop-Elect, and others each have their specific required rubrics, texts, prayers, etc. to follow and to use at various places within the “Significatio ex adjunctis”      of the Missale Romanum.

IF you need to refresh your memory about this, please go to Our web page that provides 77 separate sections of comparisons between the 1891 edition of the Pontifical Romanum and the NEW 1968 Roman Pontifical, which 1968 version is an anti-Catholic heretical abomination and gross abuse of  Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi, a.k.a. Legem Credendi Lex Statuit Supplicandi.

Likewise, Roman-Collared LAYMEN, "ordained" with the 1968, or later editions of, the Roman Pontifical, who think and act as though they really are priests and bishops and popes. are NOT able to Offer a lawful and valid   Catholic Traditional Mass as it was before 1944 in the Roman Catholic Church, nor can they Administer any Sacraments of the Roman Catholic Church for the same reason - because of the immutable law of   Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi   -  which means ALL Roman-Collared LAYMEN, "ordained" with the 1968, or later editions of, the Roman Pontifical, ARE de facto members, NOT of the Roman Catholic Church, but of the NEW World Order of anti-Christ's Satanicx Synod Vatican 2 pseudo-church.

This also means that many Souls of faithful, sincere, trusting, but ignorant Catholics, have gone to Hell because of the  illegal and
   invalid pseudo-masses of these Roman-Collared LAYMEN,

(which deprived the Souls of faithful, sincere, trusting, but ignorant Catholics, of Sanctifying Grace  by which  to desire to obtain Absolution for their Mortal Sins in the Roman Catholic Sacrament of Penance)
and the illegal and invalid  pseudo-sacraments of these Roman-Collared LAYMEN, such as the per se invalid  and  illegal "rite of reconciliation" found in the NEW World Order of anti-Christ's   Satanicx Synod Vatican 2 pseudo-churches.

Especially sad are the Souls in Hell whose Mortal Sins were unable to be absolved in the Roman Catholic Sacrament of Penance

(N.B.:  The anti-Catholic, NEW World Order of anti-Christ's Satanic     Synod Vatican 2 pseudo-churchs'  "rite of reconciliation" is NOT a Sacrament, but a blatant demonic lie and deception!),
before their deaths, because such Roman-Collared LAYMEN have no Power of any kind:  1) to Offer any Masses; and, 2) to Administer any Sacraments, including the Roman Catholic Sacrament of Penance.

Today, More and More Roman-Collared LAYMEN
Are Leaving their Parishes Because They Now Realize that

To Offer Mass and to Administer the Sacraments!











Roman-Collared LAYMEN also have the very real and terrible fear they will go to Hell because their fake and phony “sacraments” never had any power to prevent the Souls of their trusting Parishioners from going to Hell because these fake and phony priests and bishops have never had any power to Absolve from any sins, including Mortal Sins!

Part Four

Question:
How Can I Determine Which Catholic Prelates
Are NOTREAL, ValidCatholic Prelates?

In  Part One - That Which Makes a Sacrament a VALID Sacrament, Part Two - The Sacrament of the Episcopacy,   and Part Three - That Which Makes the Sacrament of the Episcopacy A  REAL,  TRUE, and VALID Sacrament,    you have had an opportunity to refresh your memory concerning what the Catholic Church teaches on these subjects.

With these basic truths in mind, you can now use various procedures to determine which Catholic Prelates are not   REALValid       Catholic Prelates, remembering that  the ultimate answer of how to determine the difference between   REALCatholic Priests and Bishops and    FAKECatholic Priests and Bishops is the answer to this question:

Which Pontificale was used for the Episcopal Consecration?  This is the principle of  Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi, a.k.a. Legem Credendi Lex Statuit Supplicandi.
IF the Roman Pontifical of 1968 was used, for the ordination of a certain deacon, a certain priest, or for the ordination of a certain bishop, you automatically know that such a deacon, and/or priest, and/or bishop is NOT a   validlyordained deacon,and/or priest and/or bishop.

Yet the bottom line is really whether or not the Roman Pontifical of 1968 (or a later edition) was used for the ordination of a certain bishop, because ONLY a   validly      Consecrated Catholic Bishop can  validly     Ordain Catholic Deacons and Priests and  validly     Consecrate other Catholic Bishops.

Said another way, without  validly     Consecrated Catholic Bishops there can not be any  validly     Ordained Catholic Deacons, Priests and   validly     Consecrated Catholic  Bishops.

So the only thing you really need to do is:

1)  Find out the date of the deaconal ordination, and/or  priestly ordination and/or episcopal ordination of a certain person who is a de facto member of the SatanicSynod Vatican 2 church.

But not every deacon, priest and bishopordained in the SatanicSynod Vatican 2 church     will want you to know the date of their ordination, so you need to search the internet, or other source(s) for this important date.

Why?  Because most probably at least some of the deacons, priests and bishops who have been ordained with the 1968 (or any later edition) Roman Pontifical of the  SatanicSynod Vatican 2 church    will most likely be at least somewhat aware of the fact that they are ONLY LAYMEN and, as a result, they will not want to admit this fact to anyone.

Of course other deacons, priests and bishops who have been ordained with the 1968 (or any later edition) Roman Pontifical of the  SatanicSynod Vatican 2 church    will most likely not care because they will stubbornly take the position that they are validly      ordained catholic deacons, priests and   validly   consecrated catholic bishops.   This may be due either to gross ignorance or for some other reason.

The bottom line for you is that it is logical for you to take the position that ALL members of the  SatanicSynod Vatican 2 church    who were ordained deadons, priests and bishops in 1968, or later, are, for this reason only, invaliddeacons, priests and bishops, even those ordained deacons, priests and bishops by any of the the  SatanicSynod Vatican 2 church     popes, some of whom were/are not themselves valid priests/bishops!

For example,  Mr.  pope  Bergoglio, a.k.a. Mr.  pope F-1, is NOT a  valid priest or a  valid  bishop,  having himself been ordained  a priest with the required  per se  invalid1968 Roman Pontifical of the SatanicSynod Vatican 2 church    on Saturday, December 13, 1969, and later  ordained a bishop  with the required    per se   invalid   1968 Roman Pontifical of the SatanicSynod Vatican 2 church     on  Saturday, June 27, 1992.

Bottom lineMr.   pope  Bergoglio, a.k.a. Mr.  pope  F-1, is ONLY A LAYMAN in the  SatanicSynod Vatican 2 church,   even IF he had a thousandx validlyConsecrated  Catholic Bishops of the Roman Catholic Church trying to ordain this layman a priest  and a bishop!  The  SatanicSynod Vatican 2 church    requires  the use of the Roman Pontifical  1968 (or any later) edition for ordination in the  SatanicSynod Vatican 2 church.

Be careful of those deacons and priests who are members of the   SatanicSynod Vatican 2 church     who also claim to be very traditional, with some of them even claiming a special status as being incardinated in what is known as the Suburbicarian Diocese of Velletri-Segni, which is one of the suburbicarian dioceses in Italy, which is close to Rome, having a special status and a Cardinal Bishop, the bishop of Velletri-Segni.

Some of these priests were even  invalidly   ordained  by one of the    SatanicSynod Vatican 2 church     popes, which popes, of course, use the  SatanicSynod Vatican 2 church     requiredRoman Pontifical,  1968 (or any later) edition, for ordination of their deacons, priests and bishops in the SatanicSynod Vatican 2 church.

It makes no difference how many  SatanicSynod Vatican 2 church      popes would try to ordain  the very same person a deacon, and/or a priest and/or a bishop, even if it be thousands and thousands of times, in the   SatanicSynod Vatican 2 church.   Such deacons, priests and bishops, before their respective ordinations with the Roman Pontifical,  1968 (or any later) edition, were only LAYMEN, just as these very same deacons, priests and bishops, after their respective ordinations with the Roman Pontifical  1968 (or any later) edition, are STILL LAYMEN, no matter how much such LAYMEN  try to claim they are  valid!

2)  Find out the date of the deaconal, and/or priestly, ordination, and/or episcopal ordination of a certain person who claims to be valid    because he claims he is not an actual member of the  SatanicSynod Vatican 2 church    and which priest and/or bishop probably uses more traditional liturgical books for Mass and the Sacraments.

But, here again, the concern is whether or not he was ordained with the Roman Pontifical,  1968 (or any later) edition.  IF the answer is yes, that he was ordained with the Roman Pontifical,  1968 (or any later) edition, then such a person is invalid.

3) There are also other Priests and Bishops who, although they were NOT ordained with the Roman Pontifical,  1968 (or any later) edition, but with a pre-1944 edition of the Pontificale Romanum, and no matter how traditional  they seem to be, no matter how anti-SatanicSynod Vatican 2 church      they might be, such as these are sometimes actually NOT   validly      ordained  Catholic Priests  and/or   validly       consecrated Catholic Bishops, usually because of the fact that the Bishop who ordained/consecrated them was, himself, not a  validly      consecrated Catholic Bishop.

In this case, such investigations can be tedious and inconclusive because sometimes it can be very difficult to determine the validity      of the Bishop who did the actual consecration of the Bishop in question.

If the Bishop in question was  consecrated  by a Bishop who was a de facto member of an anti-church, e.g. a Freemason, a Communist, a Carbonari, a member of the Fifth Column, an Illuminati, etc., then the the actual consecration of the Bishop in question by such an anti-Catholic bishop (pretending to be a Catholic Bishop), such an episcopal consecration would be   invalid,     at the very least, due to  defect of:  a)  Proper Determinate Administrator;  and, b) also defect of: Proper Determinate Intention.

To determine this may take years of investigation because secret societies, and various anti-churches, do not readily release the names of their members.

It is usally also very difficult to ever determine which Pontificale was used.

4) There is yet another category to be considered.  Today there are Catholic Priests and Catholic Bishops who are Independent, not only of the Vatican, which is to say they are 100% independent of the  SatanicSynod Vatican 2 churchbut also of any of the so-called traditional organizations or societies.

Most of these Independent Catholic Priests and Catholic Bishops are very deep in the Catacombs in various countries around the world.  At this point in time, based upon Our previous (very limited and indirect) knowledge of the Catacomb Catholic Priests and Catholic Bishops, We have been given to understand that  all such Catholic Priests and Catholic Bishops are 100%, without any doubts or questions, totally  Valid       Catholic Priests and Catholic Bishops.

For reasons, which should be self-evident,

(security reasons:  the prevention of all assasinations of these faithful, real, Valid,     honest, trustworthy, and Catholic Traditional Priests and Prelates - including Auxiliary Bishops, Bishops, Archbishops, Metropolitan Archbishops, etc.),
We are not permitted to reveal any of the few details We have had (all of which We have actually forgotten, by the Grace of God!) about any of them, some of whom have been assassinated by ................
do We really have to mention those who are responsible for the martyrdom of such very courageous Catacomb Catholic Traditional Priests and Catholic Traditional Bishops?!




Conclusion

Please join with Us in praying for the Grace of Conversion for all of the members of the    SatanicSynod Vatican 2 church,    especially for its clergy, many of whom are totally ignorant of what the SatanicSynod Vatican 2 church,  really is and likewise totally ignorant of the fact that all of those who have been ordained with the 196 8 (or later) edition of that church's Roman Pontifical are only LAYMEN,

Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi; a.k.a. Legem Credendi Lex Statuit Supplicandi
which means such laymen wearing mass vestments are unable to offer a  ValidMass and also such laymen are not able to administerValidSacraments of the Catholic Church, thereby  unknowingly defrauding their parishioners of  Validsources of Sanctifying Grace!

Please remember that many of these same clergy-laymen were taught and trained in the seminaries of the SatanicSynod Vatican 2 church      which, as We understand it, teach, whether directly or indirectly, the Heresies of Modernism and the Heresies of the NEW Theology Theologians.

An important historical note:

Most Roman Catholics, even many Seminarians and Clergy, are NOT aware of the fact that, at least in the U.S.A., and most probably in all other countries as well, certain (probably all) Roman Catholic Seminaries, beginning with the Fall Semester of 1963, all of the Seminarians (some of whom were obviously later ordained Priests and Bishops!) at that time were begun to be methodically brainwashed with the heresies of Modernism and the NEW Theology heresies!
Remember how Pope Saint Pius X lamented that even in the first decade of the 1900's a few Modernist Heretics were trying to become Seminary Teachers in some Roman Catholic Seminaries, primarily in a few countries in Europe:
“43. And here we have already some of the artifices employed by Modernists to exploit their wares. What efforts do they not make to win new recruits!   They seize upon professorships in the seminaries and universities,  and gradually make of them chairs of pestilence....  We have to deplore the spectacle of many young men, once full of promise and capable of rendering great services to the Church, now gone astrayIt is also a subject of grief to Us that many others who, while they certainly do not go so far as the former, have yet been so infected by breathing a poisoned atmosphere, as to think, speak, and write with a degree of laxity which ill becomes a Catholic. They are to be found among the laity, and in the ranks of the clergy, and they are not wanting even in the last place where one might expect to meet them, in religious communities.  If they treat of biblical questions, it is upon Modernist principles; if they write history, they carefully, and with ill-concealed satisfaction, drag into the light, on the plea of telling the whole truth, everything that appears to cast a stain upon the Church. Under the sway of certain a priori conceptions they destroy as far as they can the pious traditions of the people, and bring into disrespect certain relics highly venerable from their antiquity. They are possessed by the empty desire of having their names upon the lips of the public, and they know they would never succeed in this were they to say only what has always been said by all men. Meanwhile it may be that they have persuaded themselves that in all this they are really serving God and the ChurchIn reality they only offend both, less perhaps by their works in themselves than by the spirit in which they write, and by the encouragement they thus give to the aims of the Modernists.”  (Pope Saint Pius X, Encyclical Pascendi Dominici Gregis,   Sunday, September 8, 1907 A.D.; emphasis added.)
Many years ago, We were approached by a person who claimed to be a respresentative of a group of seminarians in a famous traditional catholic seminary which had been established by a certain archbishop.  This alleged respresentative on behalf of those seminarians, informed Us that they were frustrated because they did not know where to go for their proper Roman Catholic Seminary training according to the Roman Catholic Council of Trent and the requirements of various Popes, e.g. Pope Leo XIII.

This alleged respresentative claimed that they considered the archbishop who had established their seminary to have been   invalidly     ordained a Priest and   invalidly     consecrated a Bishop!  Yet they considered Us to have been  validly      Ordained a Catholic Priest and   validly      Consecrated a Catholic Bishop.

This was why, according to their alleged respresentative, they were begging Us, through him, to establish Our own Catholic Traditional Roman Catholic Seminary.

Although We began work on this Seminary project, eventually with a Roman Catholic Bishop and also an Archbishop, the final result was that the good God had three different areas in which He wanted the three of us to work, each area for our own different talents and gifts, with a different Hierarch to have the duties and responsibilitties of establishing and running a Catholic Traditional Seminary according to the Roman Catholic Council of Trent and the requirements of various Popes, e.g. Pope Leo XIII, etc.




For Those Who Want to Disagree With Us, Please Remember:

Because “God is Truth” (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., [b. 1225 A.D. in Rocca Secca, Naples, Italy - d. Wednesday, March 7, 1274 A.D., in Fossa Nuova, Italy], Doctor of the Church, “Summa Theologica”, Part I, Question 16, Article 5; “Summa Theologica”, Part II-II, Question 93, Article 2, Reply to Objection 2. “Summa Contra Gentiles”, Book I, Chapter 60), God can neither deceive or be deceived. And because, by nature and by definition, “Truth cannot be Truth’s  contrary”  (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., “Summa Contra Gentiles”, Book V, Chapter 8), therefore:  “Every Truth without exception, and whoever may utter it, is from the Holy Ghost”.  (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., “Summa Theologica”, Part I-II, Question 109, Article 1, Reply to Objection 1; emphasis added).

Appendix 1
Definitions of Various Terms
Some with Detailed Explanations

NoteSome terms, especially a few of those found in Scholastic Philosophy, are given in Latin for the purpose of greater precision and clarity, followed by the English translation.


Abomination of Desolation:

“And in the half of the week the Victim and the Sacrifice shall fail:  and there shall be in the Temple the Abomination of Desolation:  and the Desolation shall continue even to the consummation, and to the end” (Daniel 9:27; emphasis added).

“And they shall defile the Sanctuary of Strength, and shall take away the Continual Sacrifice, and they shall place there the Abomination unto Desolation”  (Daniel  11:31; emphasis added).

N.B.The Jews never had a real Continual Sacrifice.


Affected ignorance:
“Affected ignorance does not excuse from guilt, but rather aggravates it since it shows that a man is so strongly attached to sin that he wishes to incur ignorance lest he avoid sinning.  The Jews therefore sinned, as crucifiers not only of the Man-Christ, but also as of God.”  (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., [b. 1225 A.D. in Rocca Secca, Naples, Italy - d. Wednesday, March 7, 1274 A.D. in Fossa Nuova, Italy], Doctor of the Church, Summa Theologica, Part III, Question 47, Article 5, Reply to Objection 3.)

ANATHEMA:
Definition:
anathema - a noun.
1. excommunication.

2. a formal Church Decree of excommunication of specific person(s) and/or one or more heresies.

3. a formal perpetual Church Decree of ipso facto  [automatically - by the fact itself] (a.k.a. automatic), excommunication incurred by adherence to, and/or the propagation of,  one or more heresies, e.g. Canons of the Council of Trent; Papal Bullae, etc.

4.  any imprecation (curse) of Divine punishment.

Anathema: A thing or person struck by God’s malediction and intended for ruin.  Cf. I Cor. 12:13; Rom. 9:3; Gal. l:8-9. Anathema, in actual Church discipline, is the term used for IPSO FACTO  [automatic, by the fact itself] excommunication incurred by those denying a solemnly defined  Truth,   as is concluded principally from the Dogmatic Canons of the Roman Catholic Council of Trent and the Vatican Council, (i.e. the Roman Catholic Council Vatican I).”  (Parente, Piolanti, Garofalo, Dictionary of Dogmatic Theology, “Anathema”;  emphasis added.)

“ANATHEMA then appears as the more solemn form of pronouncing or declaring excommunication.” (Rev. P. Charles Augustine Bachofen, O.S.B., D.D., Professor of Canon Law, “A Commentary on the New Code of Canon Law”, Volume 8, Canons 2255 & 2256, p. 170.)


Being:
Definition:
Being - a noun.
1. Existence.

2. The nature or essence of a person.

3. A living creature.

Ens: id cuius actus est esse.
Being: that whose act is to be.

Catholic:
Definition:
Catholic:  a noun -  Greek - katholikos, “universal”:
1. the Catholic Church;

2. the  Roman Catholic Church.

Catholic: adjective -
1.  a member of the Catholic Church.

2. a member of the Roman Catholic Church.

Catholic: verb -   Catholicise - to make Catholic.
“And, if I finally must explain the word Catholic and translate it from the Greek into the Roman idiom, Catholic means ubique Unum - everywhere One, or, as the more learned - doctores  - think, obedience to all the Commandments of God.  Whence the Apostle, whether you be obedient in all things (2 Corinthians 2:9).  And again, For as by the disobedience of one man, many were made sinners; so also by the obedience of One, many shall be made just (Romans 5:19).  Therefore he who is a Catholic, the same man is obedient.(Bishop Saint Pacian [b. ?  A.D. - d. 390 A.D.], Bishop of Barcelona, Spain [360 A.D. - 390 A.D.], Epistola I, Contra Sympronianum, De Catholico Nomine, ¶ 8.  Letter I, Against Sympronian, a.k.a. Sympronianus, On the Catholic Name, ¶ 8 [375 A.D.]; De Scriptoribus Ecclesiasticis.)

“We must hold to the Christian religion and to communication in her Church, which is Catholic and which is called Catholic, not only by her own members but even by all her enemies. For whether they will or not, even heretics and schismatics, when talking, not among themselves, but with outsiders, call the Catholic Church nothing else but the Catholic Church.  For otherwise they would not be understood unless they distinguish the Catholic Church by that name which she bears throught the whole world” (Saint Augustine, a.k.a. Aurelius Augustinus [b. Tagaste, Africa, Saturday, November 13, 354 A.D. - d. Hippo Regia, Africa, Wednesday, August 28, 430 A.D.], Bishop of Hippo Regia, Father and Doctor of the Catholic Church, the Doctor of Grace, a protégé of Patriarch Saint Ambrose [b. in Gaul, possibly at Trier, Arles, or Lyons in 340 A.D. - d. at Milan, Italy on Friday, April 4, 397 A.D.] Patriarch of Milan [374 A.D. - Friday, April 4, 397 A.D.].  Saint Augustine's De Vera Religione, The True Religion, 7, ¶ 12 [390 A.D.]).

“When Christianity came on the scene in this world, there was a word which was to prove of the greatest importance awaiting it in the Greek language.  That word was ‘Catholic’, meaning ‘Universal’. Polybius (205-223 B.C.) used it when writing of ‘universal history.’” (Father Leslie Rumble, M.S.C., S.T.D., “Roman Catholic: A Protestant Term”, “The Homiletic and Pastoral Review”, June, 1961, p. 850; source: HIST., c. 8, sect. 2, n. II.)
 

Catholic (Gr., katholikos, universal). The term, in its primitive and non-ecclesiastical sense of universal, occurs in the Greek classics, and was freely used by the earlier Christian writers. The combination, ‘the Catholic Church,’ is found for the first time in the letter of St. Ignatius to the Smyrneans, written about the year 110. The words run: ‘Wheresoever the bishop shall appear, there let the people be, even as where Jesus may be, there is the universal (catholic) Church.’

The term continues to be found with ever-increasing frequency, in its technical sense, from this time forward; until by the 3rd century it was the commonly accepted formal title of the  true  Church, in contradistinction to all heretical or schismatic groups.

The theological significance underlying the term, ‘Catholic’ was fully drawn out during the struggle with the Donatists. The Donatists had advanced a false conception of Church discipline and organization, and claimed to be the one true Church of Christ. St. Optatus and St. Augustine in refuting them evolved    the theology on the marks of the  true     Church, insisting especially on the note of Catholicity as a definite mark. This note they pointed out was wholly inapplicable to the Donatist sect, which was confined to one section of Africa.

The theological discussion of the note of Catholicity, as applied to the  true    Church of Christ, is ordinarily concentrated on the concept of widespread diffusion throughout the world with a conspicuously great number of members. It should be noted at once, however, that the  true    notion of Catholicity involves a twofold element: the material and the formal.

Not only should there be a notable diffusion throughout the world, which is the material element; but there should also be a definite unity in this diffusion. In other words, that which is diffused, viz., the Church, should be one and the same everywhere. Catholicity is a mode of unity; it is, as it were, the amplitude of unity.

The Catholicity of the Church, therefore, must be formal as well as material. Many theologians of other communions, particularly of the Anglican Church, have taken the term ‘catholic’ in the ordinary profane sense, as meaning unlimited comprehensiveness. By applying this sense to the Church of Christ, they have evolved    a notion of the Church Catholic, which to them signifies a Church which is able and willing to include all opinions however contradictory.

This sense of the term ‘catholic’ is absolutely at variance with the sense intended by the Fathers of the Church, and by the theologians who have succeeded them during the centuries. They used the term in a technical sense, to distinguish sharply the True Church from all religious organizations which claimed to be of Christ but which did not hold perfectly to His teachings. It was used as a mark of opposition to every teaching which threatened unity and stability.

To use it now as a cover for disunity and instability directly contravenes the primary intention of that note which has always distinguished the Catholic Church from all others, viz., widespread diffusion with perfect unity. - C.E.; Devivier - Messmer, Christian Apologetics, N. Y., 1903.” (Conde B. Pallen, Ph.D., LL.D., John J. Wynne, S.J., S.T.D., et Alii, “The New Catholic Dictionary”, 1929, Imprimatur: Patrick Cardinal Hayes, Tuesday, October 1, 1929, page 179 c to 180 a.)

Note:  This source - “The New Catholic Dictionary” - gives as one of its two sources for this article, "The Catholic Encyclopedia", in which one discovers:

“The Donatists, unlike all previous heretics, had not gone wrong upon any Christological question. It was their conception of Church discipline and organization which was faulty. Hence, in refuting them, a more or less definite theory of the Church and its marks was gradually evolved     by St. Optatus (c. 370) and St. Augustine (c. 400).”  (“The Catholic Encyclopedia”, Volume 3, Brownson - Clancy, “Catholic”, page 449, column 2-f; emphasis added.  Article written by Herbert Thurston.)
The second source which “The New Catholic Dictionary” adds to the “The Catholic Encyclopedia” source is: “Devivier - Messmer, Christian Apologetics, N. Y., 1903.”

The complete title of this source is:  “Christian Apologetics: A Defense of the Catholic Faith”.  It was written by Rev. Walter Devivier, S.J. Edited by the Rt. Rev. Sebastian Gebhard Messmer, D.D., D.C.L., Bishop of Green Bay, Wisconsin. Imprimatur:  John M. Farley, Archbishop of New York, New York, April 15, 1903.

Upon a detailed examination of this source, We did find the word “evolve” as in this example:

“Man was created after the plants, fishes, birds, reptiles, and all the mammalia; he is the last and the highest work of creation, and he owes his existence to an immediate and special act on the part of God. Such is the teaching of the Bible: “God created man to His own image.” The doctrine of the Church on this point is no less clear. Hence a Christian cannot consider man as simply evolved from a monkey or from any animal whatever.” (Op. Cit.; p. 99; italic emphasis in original.)
Because the context of this statement can be taken in the sense that this source is merely making a reference to evolved   as an error of the evolutionists, it is not used in the same sense of:
St. Optatus and St. Augustine in refuting them evolved     the theology on the marks of the  true   Church
That this position is correct is verified in footnote # 1 on page 101 of “Christian Apologetics: A Defense of the Catholic Faith”:
“Moreover, even if theology permitted us to include in the  theory of transformism  the body destined to form with the soul a human being,  the production of this spiritual soul being absolutely excepted, the opinion would he regarded as illogical by real transformists [a.k.a. evolutionists.  In the Church they are Modernist Heretics.]; for, if plants and brutes are evolved    one from another according to their complete nature, the law of evolution    requires that it should be the same with man:  according to the philosophic teaching received among Catholics there is but one soul in man, the spiritual soul, which is the substantial form of the body.  It is not easy to evade the force of this objection. Hence genuine transformists [evolutionists], consistent in the application of their system,  make no exception in regard to the human soul, and thus fall into the fatal abyss of materialism.”   (Op. Cit.; footnote # 1, page 101; emphasis added.)
For the record, We also did find the word “devolves”, for example, in this text on page 41:
“Let us add finally, that it also  devolves  upon reason to defend revealed truths against the attacks of their enemies.”
Obviously “devolves”, along with its synonyms, such as: delegate, depute, pass (down/on), download, hand down/over/on, transfer, transmit, assign, consign, convey, entrust, turn over, give, cede, surrender, relinquish, deliver, etc., does not mean the same thing as “evolved”.

Regarding St. Optatus, reference is made on pages 380 and 385 to St. Optatus of Milevum, but within a different context.

Therefore, by process of elimination, it is the author of the article in “The Catholic Encyclopedia”, Herbert Thurston, who is responsible for the use of the word  “evolved” in:

St. Optatus and St. Augustine in refuting them evolved    the theology on the marks of the  true   Church
Should Herbert Thurston, who wrote the article which appears in “The Catholic Encyclopedia”, be considered a Modernist Heretic?

The answer to this question should be an obvious YES after the Reader seriously and honestly reads what is found in this article:

“Fr. Herbert Henry Charles Thurston, S.J. (15 November 1856 – 3 November 1939) was an English priest of the Roman Catholic Church, a member of the Jesuit order, and a prolific scholar on liturgical, literary, historical, and spiritual matters.   He served as headmaster at Wimbledon College for one term. In his day, he was considered something of an expert on spiritualism.

Thurston was ordained in 1890.  Thurston wrote more than 150 articles for the Catholic Encyclopedia (1907-1914), and published nearly 800 articles in magazines and scholarly journals, as well a dozen books. He re-edited Alban Butler's “Lives of the Saints” (1926-1938). He was a close friend of the Modernist theologian, Father George Tyrrell, who was harshly sanctioned by the Church.  Many of Thurston’s articles show a skeptical attitude towards popular legends about the lives of the saints and about holy relics and his treatment of spiritualism and the paranormal was regarded as ‘too sympathetic’ by some sections of the Catholic community.”  (Wikipedia, “Herbert Thurston”; emphasis added).

Furthermore, ALL of Modernist Heretic Fr. Herbert Henry Charles Thurston, S.J.'s 150 articles for the Catholic Encyclopedia should be removed from “The Catholic Encyclopedia”, or at least a warning concerning each of them needs to be given and his edition of the Lives of the Saints should be destroyed!  Obviously, the many printed copies of the original series of volumes of “The Catholic Encyclopedia” can not be changed, but digital copies of it can and should be changed.

We have also discovered other articles, written by other authors for the original volumes of “The Catholic Encyclopedia”, also contain errors of various kinds.  Obviusly, the Nihil Obstat and Imprimatur for at least some of its volumes are misleading and false.

This either indicates an ignorance of some subject matters, including, but not limited to, the Heresy of Modernism, not to mention Church History, or collusion - tacit consent - with the Modernist Heretics on some level?

As a warning to everyone, for the record, here is a partial list of some of some of Thurston’s contributions to “The Catholic Encyclopedia” by subject:

Some may argue that not everything Thurston wrote was heretical since at least everything else he wrote in the above article seems to be correct?

This statement reminds Us of the warning of Pope Saint Pius X:

“18. This will appear more clearly to anybody who studies the conduct of Modernists, which is in perfect harmony with their teachings. In their writings and addresses they seem not infrequently to advocate doctrines which are contrary one to the other, so that one would be disposed to regard their attitude as double and doubtful. But this is done deliberately and advisedly, and the reason of it is to be found in their opinion as to the mutual separation of science and faith. Thus in their books [and in their articles for The Catholic Encyclopedia] one finds some things which might well be approved by a Catholic, but on turning over the page one is confronted by other things which might well have been dictated by a rationalist......   having for this purpose blotted out the old theology, endeavor to introduce aNEW theology     which shall support the aberrations of philosophers.” (Pope Saint Pius X, Giuseppe Melchiorre Sarto [b. at Riese, Lombardy-Venetia, Austrian Empire on Tuesday, June 2, 1835; Pope: Tuesday, August 4, 1903 - d.  [b. at Riese, Lombardy-Venetia, Austrian Empire on Tuesday, June 2, 1835; Pope: Tuesday, August 4, 1903 - d. at the Apostolic Palace, Rome, Kingdom of Italy, on Thursday, August 20, 1914], Encyclical “Pascendi Dominici Gregis”, On the Doctrine of the Modernists, Sunday, September 8, 1907, ¶ 18; emphasis added).
For the record, Tyrrell    was disciplined under the Roman Catholic Pope Saint Pius X for claiming:
“the right of each age to adjust the historico-philosophical expression of Christianity to contemporary certainties, and thus to put an end to this utterly needless conflict between faith and science which is a mere theological bogey.”
It should also be noted that when  the Modernist Heretic, 2nd Pope John 23rd   called for Synod Vatican 2 [Thursday, October 11, 1962 - Wednesday, December 8, 1965], this Modernist Heretic, 2nd Pope John 23rd,  used much of the imagery and language that Tyrrell had used in his infamous letter of 1908 to Cardinal Mercier.

Therefore, along with other Modernist Heretics, he is also partly responsible for  Nouvelle Théologie - “the NEW Theology”- a.k.a. “neo-Modernism”    that played a monumental role in the arguments, deliberations, and documents of Synod Vatican 2, as verified by David G. Schultenover, on the last page of his critical study of Tyrrell's    thought, writes:

Anyone who has studied both him  [Tyrrell] and the documents of Vatican II will recognize his principles [of theHeresy of Modernism]     reborn on nearly every page”!  (“George Tyrrell: In Search of Catholicism” (Shepherdstown, West Virginia: Patmos Press, 1981); emphasis added.)

Christian Catholic:
Christian is my name, Catholic is my surname. [Christianus mihi nomen est, Catholicus cognomen.] The former [Christian] qualifies me, while the latter [Catholic] proclaims me for what I am. The latter [Catholic] demonstrates what the former [Christian] signifies.” (Bishop Saint Pacian [b. ?  A.D. - d. 390 A.D.], Bishop of Barcelona, Spain [360 A.D. - 390 A.D.], Epistola I, Contra Sympronianum, De Catholico Nomine, ¶ 7.  Letter I, Against Sympronian, a.k.a. Sympronianus, On the Catholic Name, ¶ 7 [375 A.D.]; De Scriptoribus Ecclesiasticis.)

Note:

Therefore:  It is self-evident that Protestants are NOT Christians.

Why?

Because Protestants are NOT Catholics.
In other words, there is no such thing as a Christian Protestant- only a Christian Catholic!

Why?

Because Christian ONLY signifies Catholic!

Enchiridion Symbolorum et Definitionum; Denzinger:
Enchiridion: Greek - cheir - hand): handbook.

Complete title of this handbook:

Enchiridion Symbolorum, Definitionum et Declarationum De Rebus Fidei et Morum” - “A Handbook of Symbols, Definitions, and Declarations Regarding Matters of Faith and Morals”.
Father Heinrich Joseph Dominicus Denzinger [b. at Liège, Belgium on Sunday, October 10, 1819 A.D. - d. at Würzburg, Bavaria, Germany on Tuesday, June 19, 1883 A.D.], was the original author of this book.  Denzinger was one of the pioneers of positive theology and historical dogmatics (Dogmengeschichte) in Catholic Germany.

In the generation after:

1)  Father Johann Adam Möhler [b. at Igersheim, Duchy of Württemberg, in South-Western Germany on Friday, May 6, 1796 - d. on Thursday, April 12, 1838] who, as a Church historian, was traditional in his historical writings.  This explains why some Protestants complained that Father Möhler did not agree with them that Protestantism claimed to be a movement.  This is because Father Möhler focused on the various heretical doctrines, dogmatic shortcomings, doctrinal inconsistencies, and doctrinal contradictions of its automatically excommunicated Ex-Catholic clergy who were the rebellious apostate masterminds of the Heresy of Protestantism.

2)  Father Johann Josef Ignaz Von Döllinger, D.D., [b. at Bamberg, Bavaria, Thursday, February 28, 1799 A.D. - d. at Munich, Germany, Friday, January 10, 1890 A.D.] was the most learned historian of the Roman Catholic Church, not only of the 19th Century, but quite possibly of all Roman Catholic Church Historians.

Father Denzinger carried on the historical methods of Father Mohler and of Father Von Döllinger, D.D., and helped to establish the special character of the so-called German School, i.e. the exact investigation of the historical growth and development (not evolution) of theology, rather than philosophical speculation about the corollaries of Catholic Dogma.

Denzinger's Enchiridion is a compendium of all basic texts of Catholic Dogma and Morality since the Apostles. Pope Pius IX, Giovanni M. Mastai Ferretti [Tuesday, June 16, 1846 - Thursday, February 7, 1878], originally commissioned this work which has been in use since 1854, and has been updated a number of times.

It is frequently referenced only as Denzinger and sometimes as Denzinger's Enchiridion.

Essence:
Definition:
Essence: - a noun - From the Latin essentia, taken from esse “to be”.
1. the true substance, the basic, real, and intrinsic nature, of something; the quality which determines the nature of a thing.

2. an extract or concentrate obtained from a plant or other substance and used for flavoring, perfume, or scent.

3.  an alcoholic solution of an essential oil; spirit.

4.  the nature of the existence of a thing.

Essentia:  id quo ens est id quod est.
Essence:  that by which a being is what it is.

Essence tells us what a thing is, i.e. what kind of reality the thing is.  Since there is no being that is not a something, otherwise it would not be a being, every being must have an essence.  Essence answers the question: What is the thing?  Thus, essence must conform to the strict definition of the nature of the reality.  The essence must indicate, therefore, the genus and species of the reality.


Evolution; Evolve; Evolved; Evolving; etc.:

Evolution:  a noun -  the process by which different kinds of living organism are believed to have developed, especially by natural selection.

It seems that evolution, i.e. continual and constant change, is the one and only unchangeable dogmatic doctrine of the Modernist Heretics and the neo-Modernist Heretics, a.k.a. the NEW Theology Theologian Heretics.

Pope Saint Pius X

Here are a few brief excerpts from his Encyclical “Pascendi Dominici Gregis”, On the Doctrine of the Modernists, Sunday, September 8, 1907, in which Pope Saint Pius X exposes the errors of the Heresy and Modernism and also condemns the Heresy of Modernism, the principal heretical doctrine of which is evolution:

“12. We have thus reached one of the principal points in the Modernist's system, namely, the origin and the nature of dogma. For they place the origin of dogma in those primitive and simple formulas, which, under a certain aspect, are necessary to faith; for revelation, to be truly such, requires the clear knowledge of God in the consciousness. But dogma itself, they apparently hold, strictly consists in the secondary formulas.

To ascertain the nature of dogma, we must first find the relation which exists between the religious formulas and the religious sense. This will be readily perceived by anyone who holds that these formulas have no other purpose than to furnish the believer with a means of giving to himself an account of his faith. These formulas therefore stand midway between the believer and his faith; in their relation to the faith they are the inadequate expression of its object, and are usually called symbols; in their relation to the believer they are mere instruments.

Hence it is quite impossible to maintain that they absolutely contain the  truth:  for, in so far as they are symbols, they are the images of truth, and so must be adapted to the religious sense in its relation to man; and as instruments, they are the vehicles of truth, and must therefore in their turn be adapted to man in his relation to the religious sense. But the object of the religious sense, as something contained in the absolute, possesses an infinite variety of aspects, of which now one, now another, may present itself. In like manner he who believes can avail himself of varying conditions. Consequently, the formulas which we call dogma must be subject to these vicissitudes, and are, therefore, liable to change.  Thus the way is open to the intrinsic evolution of dogma. Here we have an immense structure of sophisms which ruin and wreck all religion.”  (Pope Saint Pius X, Giuseppe Melchiorre Sarto [b. at Riese, Lombardy-Venetia, Austrian Empire on Tuesday, June 2, 1835; Pope: Tuesday, August 4, 1903 - d.  [b. at Riese, Lombardy-Venetia, Austrian Empire on Tuesday, June 2, 1835; Pope: Tuesday, August 4, 1903 - d. at the Apostolic Palace, Rome, Kingdom of Italy, on Thursday, August 20, 1914], Encyclical “Pascendi Dominici Gregis”, On the Doctrine of the Modernists, Sunday, September 8, 1907, ¶ 12; emphasis added).

The Modernists completely invert the parts, and of them may be applied the words which another of Our predecessors Gregory IX, addressed to some theologians of his time: "Some among you, puffed up like bladders with the spirit of vanity strive by profane novelties to cross the boundaries fixed by the Fathers, twisting the meaning of the sacred text...to the philosophical teaching of the rationalists, not for the profit of their hearer but to make a show of science...these men, led away by various and strange doctrines, turn the head into the tail and force the queen to serve the handmaid.” (Pope Saint Pius X, Encyclical “Pascendi Dominici Gregis”, On the Doctrine of the Modernists, Sunday, September 8, 1907, ¶ 17; emphasis added).

“26. To conclude this whole question of faith and its various branches, we have still to consider, Venerable Brethren, what the Modernists have to say about the development of the one and the other. First of all they lay down the general principle that in a living religion everything is subject to change, and must in fact be changed. In this way they pass to what is practically their principal doctrine, namely, evolution.”

To the laws of evolution everything is subject under penalty of death -- dogma, Church, worship, the Books we revere as sacred, even faith itself. The enunciation of this principle will not be a matter of surprise to anyone who bears in mind what the Modernists have had to say about each of these subjects. Having laid down this law of evolution, the Modernists themselves teach us how it operates.” (Pope Saint Pius X, Encyclical “Pascendi Dominici Gregis”, On the Doctrine of the Modernists, Sunday, September 8, 1907, ¶ 26; emphasis added).

“28. It is thus, Venerable Brethren, that for the Modernists, whether as authors or propagandists, there is to be nothing stable, nothing immutable in the Church. Nor, indeed, are they without forerunners in their doctrines, for it was of these that Our predecessor Pius IX wrote:

These enemies of divine revelation extol human progress to the skies, and with rash and sacrilegious daring would have it introduced into the Catholic religion as if this religion were not the work of God but of man, or some kind of philosophical discovery susceptible of perfection by human efforts.” [14]
On the subject of revelation and dogma in particular, the doctrine of the Modernists offers nothing new. We find it condemned in the Syllabus of Pius IX, where it is enunciated in these terms:
Divine revelation is imperfect, and therefore subject to continual and indefinite progress, corresponding with the progress of human reason; [15]
and condemned still more solemnly in the Vatican Council:
The doctrine of the faith which God has revealed has not been proposed to human intelligences to be perfected by them as if it were a philosophical system, but as a divine deposit entrusted to the Spouse of Christ to be faithfully guarded and infallibly interpreted. Hence also that sense of the sacred dogmas is to be perpetually retained which our Holy Mother the Church has once declared, nor is this sense ever to be abandoned on plea or pretext of a more profound comprehension of the  truth. [16]
Nor is the development of our knowledge, even concerning the faith, barred by this pronouncement; on the contrary, it is supported and maintained. For the same Council continues:
Let intelligence and science and wisdom, therefore, increase and progress abundantly and vigorously in individuals, and in the mass, in the believer and in the whole Church, throughout the ages.” (Pope Saint Pius X, Encyclical “Pascendi Dominici Gregis”, On the Doctrine of the Modernists, Sunday, September 8, 1907, ¶ 28; emphasis added).

Ex opere operantis; opus operantis:
ex opere operantis:  “from the work of the worker”  Grace which is dependent upon the intention and disposition of the Administrator of the Sacrament or of the Recipient.

opus operantis:  “the work of the worker”  The subjective disposition of the Administrator of the Sacrament or of the Recipient.

Ex opere operato; opus operans; opus operatum:

opus operansthe subjective doing.


opus operatum: the objective deed.
 

ex opere operato:  Grace which is not dependent upon the intention and disposition of the Administrator of the Sacrament or of the Recipient.

ex opere operato:  “from the work which has been worked” referring to the efficacy of the Sacraments deriving from the action of the Sacrament as opposed to the merits or holiness of the Administrator or of the Recipient -  ex opere operantis.

In order to designate the objective efficacy of the Sacraments, Scholastic Theology coined the formula:  Sacramenta operantur ex opere operato.  This means that the Sacraments operate by the power of the completed Sacramental Rite.

The Council of Trent sanctioned the following terminology that was vigorously attacked by the 16th Century Protestants:

Canon 8Si quis dixerit, per ipsa novae Legis sacramenta ex opere orerato non conferri gratia, ...  anathema sitIf anybody says that Grace is not conferred ex opere operato by the Sacraments of the New Law  anathema sit.

Here is another translation:

“851.   Canon 8. If anyone shall say that by the said Sacraments of the New Law, Grace is not conferred from the work which has been worked [ex opere operato], but that faith alone in the Divine promise suffices to obtain Grace: let him be  anathema.”   (Denzinger,   Pope Paul III, Alessandro Farnese [Saturday, October 13, 1534 - Thursday, November 10, 1549], Council of Trent [1545 - 1563], Session 7, March 3, 1547, Canons on the Sacraments in General, Canon 8, ¶ 851; emphasis added.)
The historical beginnings of Scholastic terminology in this matter go back to the second half of the 12th century. A distinction was made, principally in the School of Gilbert of Poitiers, first in the doctrine of merit and in the question of the moral evaluation of Christ's Crucifixion between the  opus operans,  that is, the subjective doing, and the  opus operatum, that is, the objective deed.

The distinction was adapted to the Doctrine of the Sacraments and was thus applied to the efficacy of the Sacraments (cf. Pseudo-Poitiers-Gloss. Peter of Poitiers, Summa of the Cod. Bamberg. Patr. 136).

By opus operatum is understood theValidcompletion of the Sacramental Rite in contradistinction to the opus operantis, that is, the subjective disposition of the recipient of the Sacrament.

Said another way, ex opere operato as a technical theological term, signifies that the Sacraments produce Grace in and by themselves, apart and distinct from  ex opere operantis.

The formula  ex opere operato asserts:

1)  negatively: that the Sacramental Grace is not conferred by reason of the subjective activity of the Recipient of the Sacrament.

2)  positively:  that the Sacramental Grace is caused by the  validly     operated Sacramental Sign.

The Scholastic term does not purport to indicate the source (causa meritoria - cause of merit) of the Sacramental Grace, but rather it indicates the nature and manner of the Sacramental Operation of Grace.

Nevertheless, the Catholic teaching concerning the efficacy of the Sacraments  ex opere operato  should not be interpreted in the sense of a mechanical or magical efficacy. The opus operantis  is not excluded from this caveat.

On the contrary, in the case of the adult recipient it is expressIy required:

“849.  Canon 6.  If anyone shall say that the Sacraments of the New Law do not contain the Grace which they signify, or that they do not confer that Grace on those who do not place an obstacle in the way, as though they were only outward signs of Grace or justice, received through faith, and certain marks of the Christian profession by which the faithful among men are distinguished from the unbelievers: let him be  anathema.”    (Denzinger,   Pope Paul III, Alessandro Farnese [Saturday, October 13, 1534 - Thursday, November 10, 1549], Council of Trent [1545 - 1563], Session 7, Monday, March 3, 1547, Canons on the Sacraments in General, Canon 6, ¶ 849; emphasis added.)
Note:  The subjective disposition of the Recipient of a Sacrament is not the cause of Grace.  Rather, the subjective disposition of the Recipient of a Sacrament is merely an indispensable pre-condition of the communication of Grace called causa dispositiva.  Thus, it is not   causa effidens.

The measure of the Grace effected  ex opere operato  also depends on the grade of the subjective disposition of the Recipient of a Sacrament:

secundum propriam cuiusque dispositionem et cooperationem:
we receive Grace according to the measure given by the Holy Ghost as He wills [cf. 1 Corinthians 12:11] and  according to each one's own disposition and cooperation:
“799. Justification itself follows this disposition or preparation, which is not merely remission of sins [canon 2], but also the sanctification and renewal of the interior man through the voluntary reception of the Grace and Gifts, whereby an unjust man becomes a just man, and from being an enemy becomes a friend, that he may be ‘an heir according to hope of life everlasting’ [Titus 3:7]. The causes of this justification are: the final cause indeed is the Glory of God and of Christ and life eternal; the efficient cause is truly a merciful God Who gratuitously ‘washes and sanctifies’ [1 Corinthians 6:11], ‘signing and anointing with the Holy Ghost of promise, Who is the pledge of our inheritance’ [Ephesians 1:13]; but the meritorious cause is His most beloved only-begotten Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, ‘Who when we were enemies’ [cf. Roman 5:10], ‘for the exceeding charity wherewith He loved us’ [Ephesians 2:4], merited justification for us [canon 10] by His most holy passion on the wood of the Cross, and made satisfaction for us to God the Father; the instrumental cause is the Sacrament of Baptism, which is the ‘Sacrament of Faith’, without which no one is ever justified. Finally the unique formal cause is the ‘justice of God, not that by which He Himself is just, but by which He makes us just’  [canons 10 and 11], that, namely, by which, when we are endowed with it by Him, we are renewed in the spirit of our mind, and not only are we reputed, but we are truly called and are just, receiving justice within us, each one according to his own measure, which the ‘Holy Ghost distributes to everyone as he wills’ [1 Corinthians 12:11], and according to each one's own disposition and cooperation.”   (Denzinger,   Pope Paul III, Alessandro Farnese [Saturday, October 13, 1534 - Thursday, November 10, 1549], Council of Trent [1545 - 1563], Session 6, January 13, 1547, Decree On Justification, Chapter 7.  In What the Justification of the Sinner Consists, and What are its Causes, ¶ 799; emphasis added.)

Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi; a.k.a. Legem Credendi Lex Statuit Supplicandi:
Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi; a.k.a. Legem Credendi Lex Statuit Supplicandi:
“All ceremonies are Professions of Faith, in which the interior worship of God consists.  Now man can make profession of his inward faith, by deeds as well as by words; and in either profession, if he makes a false declaration, he sins mortally.” (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., [b. 1225 A.D. in Rocca Secca, Naples, Italy - d. Wednesday, March 7, 1274 A.D., in Fossa Nuova, Italy], Doctor of the Church, “Summa Theologica”, Part I-II, Question 103, Article 4; emphasis added.)
This fact is the theological and liturgical basis for the axiom, previously anticipated over 800 years before then, by Pope Saint Celestine I [Saturday, September 10, 422  - Tuesday, July 27, 432 ], who taught the principle: “Legem Credendi Lex Statuit Supplicandi: The Liturgical form of prayer becomes the standard of Faith”.

This is sometimes shortened to simply “Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi: The Law of Praying is the Law of Believing”.  This simply means that you declare, by a public, exterior liturgical act of worship, both your own personal interior beliefs of your faith and your own personal interior worship of God, externally expressed in public worship ceremonies.  Thus, you publicly pray what you inwardly believe, and you inwardly believe what you publicly pray.

Father Noel Barbara writes explaining how “Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi” works today:

“The liturgy is the Faith lived by the Faithful. Heretical speculations disturb simple people but little, for they are, for the most part, not aware of the theological theories.  On the other hand, however, all of the Faithful--children and adults, simple people and intellectuals--are alike formed (or deformed) by the formulas of prayer which they recite, by the singing and the music they hear, by the devotions which they practice, by the readings and commentaries to which they listen, by the form of worship which they live:  in a word, by the liturgy in which they take partThis is why heretics all down the ages have always sought to make use of the liturgy, because they have seen in it the easiest and most effective means of giving currency to their errors, and of changing the faith of the people in the direction of their [subtle] innovations.”  (Fr. Noel Barbara, magazine “Fortes in Fide”, issue:  “The Mass”; emphasis added.)
Martin Luther knew this and is alleged to have taught the principle: “Tolle Missam, Tolle Ecclesiam” - “Take away the Mass, and you Destroy the Church!”  And when heretics apply this heretical axiom of Luther to the process of gradualism - making these changes gradually, not all at once - they have great success as the past 50 years have proven!

Why does this process of gradual deception work?

By seeing everything, we finally tolerate anything, and tolerating anything finally leads us to approve everything.”  (Saint Augustine, a.k.a. Aurelius Augustinus [b. Tagaste, Africa, Saturday, November 13, 354 A.D. - d. Hippo Regia, Africa, Wednesday, August 28, 430 A.D.], Bishop of Hippo Regia, Father and Doctor of the Catholic Church, the Doctor of Grace,, secondary source, Father Noel Barbara, magazine “Fortes in Fide”, Volume 1, No. 3, p. 156, footnote # 11.)

NEW Theology - “Nouvelle Théologie”  - a.k.a. “neo-Modernism”:
“..... having for this purpose blotted out the old theology, endeavor to introduce a NEW Theology  which shall support the aberrations of philosophers.” (Pope Saint Pius X, Giuseppe Melchiorre Sarto [b. at Riese, Lombardy-Venetia, Austrian Empire on Tuesday, June 2, 1835; Pope: Tuesday, August 4, 1903 - d.  [b. at Riese, Lombardy-Venetia, Austrian Empire on Tuesday, June 2, 1835; Pope: Tuesday, August 4, 1903 - d. at the Apostolic Palace, Rome, Kingdom of Italy, on Thursday, August 20, 1914], Encyclical “Pascendi Dominici Gregis”, On the Doctrine of the Modernists, Sunday, September 8, 1907, ¶ 18; emphasis added).

“There is a good deal of talk... about a NEW Theology, which must be in constant transformation...  [i.e. evolution:  constant change].”  (Pope Pius XII, Eugenio Maria Giuseppe Giovanni Pacelli [b. at Rome, Kingdom of Italy on Thursday, March 2, 1876; Pope: Thursday, March 2, 1939 - d. at Castel Gandolfo, Italy on Thursday, October 9, 1958], L'Osservatore Romano, Thursday, December 19, 1946; emphasis added.)

La nouvelle théologie où va-t-elle?  “Where is the New Theology Leading Us?”  (Father Garrigou-Lagrange, O.P., [b. Auch, France 1877 A.D. - d. Rome, Italy, 1964 A.D.]).

Dr. Dietrich von Hildebrand
First, there is the mafia in the Church, the prelates who have not only lost their faith but who remain in the Church in order to destroy the Church; otherwise, they would leave the Church.  If I would lose my faith, I would leave the Church. But to lose the faith and remain in the Church, there must be some reason for that.  They use the slogan progress as a means to camouflage their diabolical work of destruction and to fool the faithful, in order to draw them away from Christ and His holy Church.  They are real servants of the anti-Christ.

To be sure, there exists a harmless type of mediocrity which is content to remain in its modest place.  But what we have been faced with in the Church in recent years is the revolution of the mediocre.  Before the Second Vatican Council there were many theologians and priests who had no great culture, no profound intelligence, and even a mediocre approach to life; but they remained silent, or repeated by rote the glorious teaching of the Church.

Perhaps they did so in an inadequate way, mechanically and superficially; but still they were poor mouthpieces of something incomparably greater than their own limited minds:  they transmitted to some extent Divine Truth.  They accepted a modest role.  Their mediocrity was regrettable, but not disastrous....

In the intense mediocrity that is known as Catholic progressivism the most mediocre layman, priest, or professor of theology (being a professor is not the least insurance against the dullest mediocrity) now aspires to reform the Church, to create a new theology, to be revolutionary.” (Dr. Dietrich von Hildebrand [b. on Saturday, October 12, 1889 in Florence, Italy - d. on Wednesday, January 26, 1977 in New Rochelle, New York] was a German Roman Catholic philosopher and theologian and, after fleeing the Nazis several times, he arrived in America in 1940 and became a Professor at the Jesuit Fordham University on Rose Hill, in the Bronx, New York, where he taught philosophy. Pope Pius XII, Eugenio Maria Giuseppe Giovanni Pacelli [b. at Rome, Kingdom of Italy on Thursday, March 2, 1876; Pope: Thursday, March 2, 1939 - d. at Castel Gandolfo, Italy on Thursday, October 9, 1958], informally called him “the 20th  Century Doctor of the Church.” Emphasis added.)

Dr. von Hildebrand was also a vocal critic of the Synod Vatican 2 changes, especially the changes by Pope Paul 6 and the Vatican 2 Consilium in regard to the NEW mass, a.k.a. the NOR - Novus Ordo Rite, a.k.a. Novus Ordo Missae:

“Truly, if one of the devils in C. S. Lewis' The Screwtape Letters had been entrusted with the ruin of the liturgy, he could not have done it better.” (Dr. Dietrich von Hildebrand, Der verwüstete Weinberg (in German). Regensburg: Habbel. 1973.)

Roman Catholic:
Father Leslie Rumble, M.S.C., S.T.D., wrote an interesting article entitled: “Roman Catholic: A Protestant Term”.  You can find his interesting article in: “The Homiletic and Pastoral Review”, June, 1961, p. 850; source: HIST., c. 8, sect. 2, n. II.

Sign:
Signum:  id quod praeter speciem quam ingerit sensibus facit aliquid aliud in cognitionem devenire.

Sign: that which, besides the species produced in the senses, reveals the knowledge of something else.

Significatio ex Adjunctis:

    “Signification from the rest of the Rite and the Prayers around it”.


Sine qua non:

sine qua non:  literally:  without which not.  That which is absolutely indispensable or essential.

Sine qua non or condicio sine qua non (plural: condiciones sine quibus non) refers to an indispensable and essential action, condition, or ingredient.

In matters of jurisprudence it is a legal term for "[a condition] without which it could not be"; or "but for..."; or "without which [there is] nothing".

Sine qua non causation is the formal terminology for but-for causation.


Species:
Species: universale respiciens inferiora numero distincta, in quid complete.

Esse: id quo ens est, vel exsistit.
To be: that by which the being is, or exists.

Tolle Missam, Tolle Ecclesiam:
Tolle Missam, Tolle Ecclesiam: take away the Mass, take away the Church.  This means that when the Catholic Mass is destroyed, the Catholic Church is automatically destroyed!

Martin Luther knew this and is alleged to have taught this principle.  And when heretics apply this heretical axiom of Luther to the process of gradualism - making these changes gradually, not all at once - they have great success as the past 50 years have proven!

But in order to totally destroy the Catholic Traditional Mass, the Catholic Traditional liturgical rite for the  Valid        Consecration of Catholic Traditional Bishops had to be destroyed because, without  validly     Consecrated Catholic Bishops, there can not be any  validly     Ordained Catholic Traditional Priests to Offer the  Valid       Catholic Traditional Mass and Administer the  Valid       Catholic Traditional Sacraments.


Traditio Instrumentorum:
Traditio Instrumentorum:
“3. All agree that the Sacraments of the New Law, as sensible signs which produce invisible grace, must both signify the grace which they produce and produce the grace which they signify. Now the effects which must be produced and hence also signified by Sacred Ordination to the Diaconate, the Priesthood, and the Episcopacy, namely power and grace, in all the rites of various times and places in the universal Church, are found to be sufficiently signified by the imposition of hands and the words which determine it. Besides, every one knows that the Roman Church has always held as valid Ordinations conferred according to the Greek rite without the traditio instrumentorum; so that in the very Council of Florence, in which was effected the union of the Greeks with the Roman Church, the Greeks were not required to change their rite of Ordination or to add to it the traditio instrumentorum: and it was the will of the Church that in Rome itself the Greeks should be ordained according to their own rite. It follows that, even according to the mind of the Council of Florence itself, the traditio instrumentorum is not required for the substance and validity      of this Sacrament by the will of Our Lord Jesus Christ Himself....”

“4.  ......It follows as a consequence that We should declare, and in order to remove all controversy and to preclude doubts of conscience, We do by Our Apostolic Authority declare, and if there was ever a lawful disposition to the contrary We now decree that at least in the future the Traditio Instrumentorum is not necessary for the   validityof the Sacred Orders of the Diaconate, the Priesthood, and the Episcopacy.” the Sacred Orders of the Diaconate, the Priesthood, and the Episcopacy.”  (Pope Pius XII, Eugenio Pacelli [Thursday, March 2, 1939 - Thursday, October 9, 1958], First Sunday of Advent, November 30, 1947, Apostolic Constitution Sacramentum Ordinis, On the Sacrament of Order, First Sunday of Advent, November 30, 1947; ¶¶ 3 - 4; emphasis added.)


Truth; True:
Definition:
Truth - a noun.  From the Anglo-Saxon tréow, tryw, truth, preservation of a compact, from a Teutonic base Trau, to believe.

In Scholastic Philosophy, Truth means:

1.  General Truth:  In its general senseGeneral Truth is the conformity of the mind with a thing.

2.  Logical Truth:  In its principle sense:  True knowledge; Truth of thought.  Logical Truth is the conformity of the mind with a thing; the adequation of the mind with a thing; the assent to what is and the denial of what is not; a relation between the knower and the known.

Veritas Logica: adequatio intellectus ad rem.
Logical Truth: conformity of intellect to thing.

3.  Ontological / Metaphysical Truth:  conformity of thing(s) with the mind; intelligibility of things.

3a.  Per se - essentially - the thing or its form is true according to its conformity to the idea of its maker; a relation between the thing itself, as it exists, and the idea of it, as conceived by God.

3b.  Per accidens - accidentally - it is true to anyone who can know it.

4.  Moral Truth:  conformity of formal speech with one's mind; truthfullness; veracity; a relation between the knower and the outward expression which he gives to his knowledge.

Note:  In each case this relation is, according to Scholastic Philosophy, one of correspondence,  conformity,  or agreement - adoequatio:
Objection 2. Further, according to the Philosopher (Ethic. iv, 7), truth is a virtue distinct from justice. Truth therefore does not appertain to the idea of justice.

Reply to Objection 2. The truth of which the Philosopher is speaking in this passage, is that virtue whereby a man shows himself in word and deed such as he really is. Thus it [Truth] consists in the conformity of the sign with the thing signified; and not in that of the effect with its cause and rule: as has been said regarding the truth of justice.”  (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., [b. 1225 A.D. in Rocca Secca, Naples, Italy - d. Wednesday, March 7, 1274 A.D. in Fossa Nuova, Italy], Doctor of the Church, Summa Theologica, Part I, Question 21: The justice and mercy of God; Article 2. Whether the justice of God is Truth?, Objection 2; Reply to Objection 2; emphasis added.)
5.  Basic Truth:  an immediately known proposition in a demonstration which proposition is appropriate to the topic of the demonstration.

6.  Truths of Events: distinctions for the purpose of analytic criticism:

6a.  Historical Truth:  the fact of the occurance of some event which includes the fact of the competence and veracity of the witness(es) to it.

6b.  Philosophical Truth:  the ultimate explanation of some event; specifically the reason why some historical event is regarded as beyond the natural order of phenomena and beyond the power of nature.

6c.  Theological Truth:  the reference of some event to God as its author, because it and its circumstances are worhty of God in purpose and manner of performance.

References include:  Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., Summa Theologica, Part I, Treatise on Sacred Doctrine, Question 1. The nature and extent of sacred doctrine, Article 1:  Whether, besides philosophy, any further doctrine is required?, and Article 2: Whether sacred doctrine is a science?

Uniate Catholic:
In general, Uniate (sometimes spelled Uniat) Catholics are those members of the Eastern Rites which are in Union with Rome in contradistinction to the Eastern Rite Orthodox who are not in Union with Rome.  Before Synod Vatican 2, the Liturgies of both the Uniate Eastern Rite Catholics and the Eastern Rite Orthodox were the same.  Historically, from time to time, sometimes one or more Uniate Eastern Rite Catholic Patriarchs (and all of the Clergy - Priests and Prelates) would, as the expression goes, roll up the Papal Flag for a time period, because of some serious problems various Popes gave them.

Uniat Churches. Uniats are Eastern Christians who hold the same doctrine as the Western Church (i.e., Catholics of Western Europe, America, and countries depending on them), but have very different rites and discipline. Their liturgies follow one or other of the great Eastern rites (those of Antioch, Alexandria, Byzantium, or their derivatives), and they usually have a married clergy. All the main groups of Non-Uniat churches have corresponding groups of Uniats, i.e., those of their former members who have in the course of centuries (particularly in the 16th and 17th) reacknowledged their allegiance to the Pope; their names are different in some cases, but the reference letters, A, B, C, etc., in the following list show the connection with the Non-Uniat Churches (q.v.):

A. Byzantine Uniats, so called because they all use the Rite of Constantinople (Byzantium), are subdivided into 6 groups:

1. Greeks (in Constantinople, Athens, etc.);

2. Melchites (q.v.; in Syria and Egypt);

3. Georgians (Constantinople);

4. Rumanians;

5.  Italo-Greeks (q.v.; in Southern Italy; never schismatic) ;

6.  Ruthenians (q.v.; in Western Russia, Hungary; many in the United States).

B. Chaldees (Iraq).

C.  Copts (Egypt).

D. Abyssinians.

E.  Catholic Syrians.

F.  Uniat Church of Malabar (India).

G.  Uniat Armenians.

H.  Uniat Bulgarians. To these must be added:

J. Maronites (q.v.; in Syria; apparently they never were Schismatics).”  (Conde B. Pallen, Ph.D., LL.D., John J. Wynne, S.J., S.T.D., et Alii, “The New Catholic Dictionary”, 1929, Imprimatur: Patrick Cardinal Hayes, Tuesday, October 1, 1929,  pages 979 d - 980 a.)

Note:  Ruthenians also include the Ukrainian Uniate Catholics.  Perhaps the most famous of which being Patriarch Kyr Josyf Cardinal Slipyj?


Have you ever seen the movie, “The Shoes of the Fisherman” and/or are you familiar with the term “Ostpolitik”?

“Ostpolitik” (German for “Eastern Politics”) describes the politics of the “Change Through Rapprochement” principle which Communist Russian leader Nikita Sergeyevich Khrushchev [b. in Kalinovka, Russian Empire, on Tuesday, April 17,  1894 - d. in Moscow, Russia, Soviet Union on Saturday, September 11, 1971] offered the Vatican on the occasion of the 80th birthday of 2nd Pope John 23, Angelo Giuseppe Roncalli [Tuesday, October 28, 1958 - Monday, June 3, 1963] on Sunday, November 25, 1962. Since that time, the Popes have become very cozy with the Communists.

Even the movie, “The Shoes of the Fisherman”, released to the public on Thursday, November 14, 1968, starring Laurence Olivier as the fictional Russian leader Piotr Ilyich Kamenev (in reality, Nikita Khrushchev) and Anthony Quinn as Metropolitan Archbishop Kiril Pavlovich Lakota, the Metropolitan Archbishop of Lviv, Ukraine, who is unexpectedly set free after twenty years in a Siberian labor camp and sent to Rome, where the elderly fictional Pope Pius XIII raises him to the cardinalate in the title of St. Athanasius (The novel has him as a bearded Ukrainian, but the movie has him as a Russian.), is a classical example of Ostpolitik.  Why?

Because, just as the fictional Metropolitan Archbishop Kiril Pavlovich Lakota is released by the Russian Communist leader from a Siberian Gulag, so also his real-life counter-part, the bearded Ukrainian Metropolitan Archbishop of Lviv, Ukraine, the Ukrainian Catholic Cardinal, Patriarch Josyf Slipyj was likewise released by Russian Communist Nikita Khrushchev from a Siberian Gulag in 1963, the year of the novel's publication, after political pressure from 2nd Pope John 23 and United States President John F. Kennedy.

Although real-life Patriarch Kyr Josyf Cardinal Slipyj [b. Zazdrist, Wednesday, February 17, 1892 - d. Rome, Friday, September 7, 1984] arrived in Rome in time to participate in Synod Vatican 2, he was forbidden to speak against Communism and Synod Vatican 2 never condemned Communism despite its vicious slaughter of millions of Ukrainian Uniate Catholics under Joseph Vissarionovich Stalin [b. in Gori, Georgia, Russian Empire on Wednesday, December 18, 1878 - d. in Moscow, Russia, Soviet Union on Thursday, March 5, 1953] in the early 1930's which, according to some news reports at that time - estimated the number of those who died was somewhere between 8 to 12 million Ukrainians, many of them Catholic Uniates.  Some independent sources claim the total number of people Stalin killed all over the U.S.S.R., when he was in charge, was over 50 million people!

While living in Rome, especially attending Synod Vatican 2, the Ukrainian Catholic Cardinal, Patriarch Josyf Slipyj, became aware that the Pope and some Cardinals, Archbishops, Bishops, etc., were trying to destroy the Catholic Church.  This became even more clear to him when His Beatitude, in his own place, secretly Consecrated a number of Bishops and sent them into the Ukraine to Ordain Priests.  The Communist persecution had killed off all of the 10 Ukrainian Uniate Catholic  Prelates except for the Patriarch, not to mention many of the  Ukrainian Uniate Catholic  Priests.  But the Vatican got wind of this secret Episcopal Consecration and the Pope demanded a list of all of the names of the secretly Consecrated Bishops.  The Patriarch reluctantly complied.  Within less than one year, the Communist KGB had killed all of them.  Government and newspaper reports have written about the above subjects.

Appendix 2
Brief Considerations

“All power is given to Me in Heaven and on earth. Going therefore, teach ye all nations; baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you; and behold I am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world.”  (Matthew 28:18-20)

“Therefore, brethren, stand fast and hold the Traditions which you have been taught, whether by word [oral Tradition] or by Our letter [written Tradition - Scripture]”  (2 Thessalonians 2:15; emphasis added.).

But though We, or an angel from Heaven, preach to you a Gospel besides that which We have preached to you; let him be anathema”   (Galatians 1:8).

Be not led away with various and strange doctrines.  Jesus Christ yesterday, and today, and the same forever” (Hebrews 13:8-9).

“We charge you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you withdraw yourselves from every brother walking disorderly, and not according to the [Apostolic] Tradition which they have received of Us”.  (2 Thessalonians 3:6).

Let us note that the very tradition, teaching, and faith of the Catholic Church from the beginning, which the Lord gave, was preached by the Apostles, and was preserved by the Fathers. On this was the Church founded; and if anyone departs from this, he neither is, nor any longer ought to be called, a Christian.”  (Patriarch Saint Athanasius [b. Alexandria, Egypt 296 A.D. - d. Alexandria, Egypt on Wednesday, May 2, 373A.D.], Patriarch of Alexandria, Egypt, Father of Orthodoxy in the Catholic Church, Letter to Serapion of Thmuis, 359 A.D.).

“§ 1.  Omnes a christiana fide apostatae et omnes et singuli haeretici aut schismatici:  All apostates from the Christian faith and all heretics and schismatics:   1o.  Incurrunt ipso facto excommunicationem;  Incur excommunication ipso facto  [automatically by the fact itself].”   (Codex Iuris Canonici- Code of Canon Law, 2314; emphasis added.)

Anyone who spontaneously and with full knowledge helps in any way in the propagation of heresy, or who co-operates in any way with heretics contrary to the provision of Canon #1258 is suspected of heresy.”  (Codex Iuris Canonici - Code of Canon Law, 2316; emphasis added.)

Persons not in Sacerdotal Orders, who pretend to say Mass or to hear Sacramental Confession, ipso facto   [automatically by the fact itselfincur the excommunication reserved in a special manner to the Apostolic See.  A layman performing such acts must, besides, be deprived of any pension and offices he may hold in the church, and be punished with other penalties, according to the gravity of the crime:  a cleric is to be deposed.” (Codex Iuris Canonici - Code of Canon Law, 2322; emphasis added.)

So tell me, “Catholic to the Core”, WHY do You:

1) Send your children to a “catholic school” that teaches them the Heresies of Modernism & the NEW Theology?

2) Go to a “catholic church” that uses a 16th Century  PROTESTANT   Memorial Supper Mealmass”?

3) Made up on a  PROTESTANT  Supper TABLE?

4) By mostly invalidly  ordained  LAYMEN  who wrongly think they are real:   priests; or, bishops; or, cardinals; or, even a pope?!!!

FACT: Your “core” is really “ANTI-Catholic”!!!!!!!

8.  Let no one therefore say that a man must not be rebuked when he deviates from the right way, but that his return and perseverance must only be asked for from the Lord for him.” (Bishop Saint Augustine,   Extract from Bishop Saint Augustine’s “Retractations”, Book II, Chapter 67, On the Following Treatise: “De Correptione et Gratia”, “Treatise on Rebuke and Grace, Addressed to Valentine, and with him to the Monks of Adrumetum”, 426 A.D., or 427 A.D., Chapter 25, “Therefore Rebuke is to Be Used”; emphasis added.)

9. “Receive the staff of the Pastoral Office, so that in the correction of vices you may be lovingly severe, giving judgment without wrath, softening the minds of your hearers whilst fostering virtues, not neglecting strictness of discipline through love of tranquillity.” (Pontificale Romanum, 1891 Edition, Ancient Roman Rite of the Catholic Church, Rite for the Administration of the Sacrament of the Holy Episcopacy, Episcopal Consecrator gives the Crozier - Pastoral Staff - to the Newly Consecrated Bishop; emphasis added.)

10. Catholic Doctrine tells us that the primary duty of Charity does not lie in the toleration of false ideas, however sincere they may be.... Catholic Doctrine further tells us that love for our neighbor flows from our love for God, Who is Father to all, and goal of the whole human family; and in Jesus Christ whose members we are, to the point that in doing good to others we are doing good to Jesus Christ Himself. Any other kind of love is sheer illusion, sterile and fleeting....”  (Pope Saint Pius X, Giuseppe Melchiorre Sarto [Tuesday, August 4, 1903 - Thursday, August 20, 1914], Encyclical “Notre Charge Apostolique”, Our Apostolic Mandate, To the French Bishops, Monday, August 15, 1910, ¶ 27; emphasis added.)

11.  “Further, whilst Jesus was kind to sinners and to those who went astray, He did not respect their false ideas, however sincere they might have appeared. He loved them all, but He instructed them in order to convert them and save them....   they show in Our Lord Jesus Christ something quite different from an inconsistent and impotent humanitarianism.”  (Pope Saint Pius X, Giuseppe Melchiorre Sarto [Tuesday, August 4, 1903 - Thursday, August 20, 1914], Encyclical “Notre Charge Apostolique”, Our Apostolic Mandate, To the French Bishops, Monday, August 15, 1910, ¶ 47; emphasis added.)

12. “These latter days have witnessed a notable increase in the number of the enemies of the Cross of Christ, who, by arts entirely new and full of deceit, are striving to destroy the vital energy of the Church, and, as far as in them lies, utterly to subvert the very Kingdom of Christ. Wherefore, We may no longer keep silence, lest We should seem to fail in Our most Sacred Duty, and lest the kindness that, in the hope of wiser counsels, We have hitherto shown them, should be set down to lack of diligence in the discharge of Our Office” (Pope Saint Pius X, Encyclical Pascendi Dominici Gregis, On the Doctrine of the Modernists, Sunday, September 8, 1907, ¶ 1; emphasis added.)

13. We do by Our Apostolic Authority repeat and confirm both that Decree of the Supreme Sacred Congregation and those Encyclical letters of Ours, adding the Penalty of Excommunication against their contradictors, and this We declare and Decree that should anybody, which may God forbid, be so rash as to defend any one of the propositions, opinions or teachings condemned in these documents he falls, ipso facto [automatically by the fact itself]under the censure contained under the chapter ‘Docentes’ of the Constitution ‘Apostolicae Sedis’, which is the first among the Excommunications latae sententiae....” (Pope Saint Pius X, Giuseppe Melchiorre Sarto [Tuesday, August 4, 1903 - Thursday, August 20, 1914], Motu Proprio, “Præstantia Scripturæ Sacræ”, ¶ 5, Monday, November 18, 1907. Automatic Excommunication of all Heretics, especially the Modernist Heretics, and which today also includes The NEW Theology Theologian Heretics, some of whom were “periti” - experts - at Synod Vatican 2; - after they were actually invited to attend Synod Vatican 2 by the Modernist Heretic, the 2nd pope John 23rd; emphasis added).

14. This Excommunication... which may be incurred by those who have violated in any way the said documents, as propagators and defenders of heresies, when their propositions, opinions and teachings are heretical, as has happened more than once in the case of the adversaries of both these documents, especially when they advocate the errors of the Modernists that isthe synthesis of all heresies” (Pope Saint Pius X, Giuseppe Melchiorre Sarto [Tuesday, August 4, 1903 - Thursday, August 20, 1914], Motu Proprio, “Præstantia Scripturæ Sacræ”, ¶ 5, Monday, November 18, 1907. Automatic Excommunication of all Heretics, especially the Modernist Heretics, and which today also includes The NEW Theology Theologian Heretics, some of whom were “periti” - experts - at Synod Vatican 2; - after they were actually invited to attend Synod Vatican 2 by the Modernist Heretic, the 2nd pope John 23rd; emphasis added).



A Few Examples of Indifferentism

A.  “Now We consider another abundant source of the evils with which the Church is afflicted at present: INDIFFERENTISM. This perverse opinion is spread on all sides by the fraud of the wicked who claim that it is possible to obtain the eternal salvation of the Soul by the profession of any kind of religion, as long as morality is maintained” (Pope Gregory XVI, Bartolomeo Alberto-Mauro-Cappellari [Wednesday, February 2, 1831 - Monday, June 1, 1846], using his Infallible Ordinary Magisterium, Promulgated his Infallible Encyclical, “Mirari Vos Arbitramur”, On Liberalism and Religious Indifferentism, Wednesday, August 15, 1832, ¶ 13; emphasis added).

B. This poisoned source of  INDIFFERENTISM  gives rise to that absurd and erroneous proposition which claims that liberty of conscience  must be maintained for everyone.  It spreads ruin....  Thence comes transformation of minds, corruption of youths, contempt of Sacred Things and Holy Laws -- in other words, this is a most contagious error” (Pope Gregory XVI, Encyclical, “Mirari Vos Arbitramur”, On Liberalism and Religious Indifferentism, Wednesday, August 15, 1832, ¶ 14; emphasis added).

C. A false idea has for a long time grown stronger and spread widely... by an impious and absurd system of INDIFFERENCE  towards Religious matters..... These theologians..... state categorically that there are many things..... in the form of its external worship which are not suited to the character of our time......  they force reforms, conceive of changes, and pretend to renew the Church”  (Pope Gregory XVI, Encyclical, “Quo Graviora”, On the Pragmatic Constitution, October 4, 1833, ¶ 4; emphasis added).

D. “The  HIDEOUS  ERROR   OF   INDIFFERENTISM.....  causes us to forget out duties to God in whom we live and act and have our being..... This belief embraces people who have strayed from the Truth, who are enemies of the True Faith and forget their own salvation, and who teach contradictory beliefs without firm doctrine. They make no distinction between the different creeds, agree with everybody, and maintain that the haven of eternal salvation is open to sectarians of any religion. The diversity of their teachings does not concern them”  (Pope Pius IX, Giovanni Maria Mastai-Ferretti [Tuesday, June 16, 1846 - Thursday, February 7, 1878], using his Infallible Ordinary Magisterium, Promulgated his Infallible Encyclical, “Singulari Quidem”, On the Church in Austria, Monday, March 17, 1856,  ¶ 3; emphasis added).

E. “The Freemasons.... teach the great error of this age- that a regard for religion should be held as an INDIFFERENT matter, and THAT ALL RELIGIONS ARE ALIKEThis manner of reasoning is calculated to bring about the ruin of all forms of religion, and especially of the Catholic Religion, which, as it is the only one that is True, cannot, without great injustice, be regarded as merely equal to other religions”  (Pope Leo XIII, Gioacchino Vincenzo Pecci [Wednesday, February 20, 1878 - Monday, July 20, 1903], using his Infallible Ordinary Magisterium, Promulgated his Infallible Encyclical, “Humanum Genus”, On Freemasonry, Sunday, April 20, 1884, ¶ 16; emphasis added).

F. The enemy has, indeed, long been prowling about the fold and attacking it with such subtle cunning.....  We are forced to agree with  those who hold that the chief cause of the present  INDIFFERENCE   and, as it  were, infirmity of soul, and the serious evils that result from it, is to be found above all in ignorance of things Divine.   This is fully in accord  with what God Himself declared through the Prophet Osee:  And there is no  knowledge of God in the land. Cursing and lying and killing and theft and  adultery have overflowed: and blood hath touched blood. Thereafter shall  the land mourn, and everyone that dwelleth in it shall languish  [Osee 4:1-3]”  (Pope Saint Pius X, Giuseppe Sarto [Tuesday, August 4, 1903 - Thursday, August 20, 1914], using his Infallible Ordinary Magisterium, Promulgated his Infallible Encyclical, “Acerbo Nimis”, On Teaching Christian Doctrine, Saturday, April 15, 1905, ¶ 1; emphasis added).

G. HOW CAN  so great  A  VARIETY  OF  OPINIONS  make the way clear to effect the  UNITY of the Church  We know not;  that    UNITY  can  ONLY  arise  FROM   ONE  TEACHING  authorityONE law of  BELIEF, and  ONE  FAITH  of Christians.   But We do know that from this it is an easy step to the neglect of Religion or  INDIFFERENTISM  and to MODERNISM,  as they call it.   Those, who are unhappily  INFECTED  WITH  THESE  ERRORS,  HOLD  THAT  Dogmatic  TRUTH  IS NOT  ABSOLUTE  but relative, that is, it agrees with the varying necessities of time and place and with the varying tendencies of the mindsince it is not contained in immutable revelation, but  is capable of being accommodated to human life”  (Pope Pius XI, Achille Ratti [Monday, February 6, 1922 - Friday, February 10, 1939], using his Infallible Ordinary Magisterium, Promulgated his Infallible Encyclical, “Mortalium Animos”, On Religious Unity, Friday, January 6, 1928, ¶ 9; emphasis added).

Today Catholics who are faithful to the authentic Apostolic Tradition perceive the plague of gross indifferentism, which is an indifferentism which can also be described as:  abhorrent, abominable, accursed, detestable, egregious, execrable. flagrant, repugnant, repulsive, severe, and vile indifferentism.

 
H.   The chief cause of the present indifference:

“The enemy has.... been prowling about the  fold and attacking it with.... subtle cunning that now, more than ever  before, the prediction of the Apostle to the elders of the Church of  Ephesus seems to be verified: I know that .... fierce wolves will get in  among you, and will not spare the flock. (Acts 20:29).....the chief cause of the present indifference..... and the serious evils that result from it, is to  be found.... in ignorance of things Divine.....  there is no  knowledge of God in the land  (Osee 4:1).”   (Pope Saint Pius X, Giuseppe Melchiorre Sarto [b. at Riese, Lombardy-Venetia, Austrian Empire on Tuesday, June 2, 1835; Pope: Tuesday, August 4, 1903 - Thursday, August 20, 1914], Encyclical “Acerbo Nimis”, On Teaching Christian Doctrine, Saturday, April 15, 1905, ¶ 1; emphasis added.)

Some of Our web pages are the only places on the Internet where you will find some very important facts,  because some of these facts are from Our own many personal experiences,     as well as the result of Our meetings with many Catholic Traditional Clergy including various Patriarchs, Cardinals, Primates, Metropolitans, Archbishops, Bishops, and Religious and Secular Priests, over many, many, many decades,    plus    Our own eye-witness testimony,   concerning   some of the many, many, many changes, which began many, many, many decades,   before the many, many, many younger generations of Catholics were even born,   and    of which changes all of these so many, many younger generations of Catholics,   have no personal knowledge and/or personal experiences.

Most of these many changes    are not only   illegal,  but they are also   invalid,  and   most of them include the censure of  automatic excommunication of the perpetrators,  because, in reality, such changes by the cabal of   automatically excommunicated Innovators,   as well as   the secret gangs   of anti-Catholic Infiltrators,    are changes which are  anti-Catholic!
