Bob Sungenis again misleads the people with the same false and already refuted arguments
Bob Sungenis, a “Catholic” apologist and defender of Vatican II and the New Mass, was recently asked a question by a man who was concerned that John Paul II may not be the Pope. The man had read an argument that John Paul II cannot be the Pope because John Paul II’s new Code of Canon Law teaches that Catholic priests can lawfully give Holy Communion to non-Catholics. The man was troubled by the argument that if John Paul II is the Pope, then the Catholic Church has officially erred in allowing Communion to be given to non-Catholics.
In the past, Bob Sungenis responded to this argument by making the argument that John Paul II has protected himself from error because Canon 844.4 of the New Code only concerns “danger of death.” In our article on Bob Sungenis, we refuted this ridiculous argument. The “danger of death” escape is false, first of all, because Canon 844.4 teaches that Communion may be given in danger of death or some other great necessity.
Secondly, the Bob Sungenis “danger of death” escape is false most clearly because Vatican II, Antipope John II’s Catechism (#1401) and Canon 844.3 all teach the same heresy that Catholic priests may give Holy Communion to non-Catholics without any mention of “danger of death”!
There is no mention of “danger of death.”
There is no mention of “danger of death.”
There is no mention of “danger of death.” So, we can see that Mr. Sungenis’ “danger of death” argument is blown out of the water. Vatican II and the New Catechism teach that Holy Communion may be given to Eastern Schismatics without any mention of danger of death.
Thirdly, the Bob Sungenis “danger of death” escape is false because even if Vatican II had mentioned “danger of death,” it still wouldn’t change the heresy. It is never lawful to give Holy Communion to a non-Catholic until he reconciles with the Church, and every Catholic should know this. Mr. Sungenis is actually a heretic for defending and asserting that it is allowable to give Holy Communion to a non-Catholic in danger of death. He rejects the following dogma that the sacraments do not profit non-Catholics unto salvation; and thus, that it is never lawful to administer Holy Communion to a non-Catholic.
It is a solemnly defined dogma that only for those who abide in the Roman Catholic Church do the Church’s sacraments contribute to salvation. Popes throughout the ages have proclaimed that non-Catholics who receive the Holy Eucharist outside the Catholic Church receive it to their own damnation.
But after all of these facts were posted in our article about him months ago, proving that Canon 844.3 mentions nothing of danger of death, that both the New Catechism and Vatican II explicitly teach that non-Catholics may lawfully receive Communion without any mention of danger of death, Bob Sungenis is still using the same false and refuted response. In Question 27 (June, 2004) of the Questions and Answers Section of his website, Bob Sungenis wrote:
This is completely false and already refuted. It is actually a lie, considering that we pointed out this falsehood months ago. Why anyone actually buys this man’s defense of the Vatican II sect is beyond me. The fact is that it is an undeniable fact that the Catholic Church teaches that it is unlawful to give Holy Communion to non-Catholics. The Vatican II sect officially teaches that it is lawful to give Holy Communion to non-Catholics. The Vatican II sect of Antipope John Paul II cannot be the Catholic Church. Those who attempt to circumvent this undeniable fact by repeating the same false and already refuted arguments, that the Vatican II sect is only allowing this in danger of death (which wouldn’t matter anyway), just heap damnation upon themselves.
