The Heresies in Benedict XVI’s 2001 Book “God is Near Us”
*This is from my continuing study of Benedict XVI’s books. For those who don’t know, Benedict XVI is Joseph Ratzinger.
God is Near Us by “Cardinal” Joseph Ratzinger, 2001 (Ignatius Press, 2003)Since there are so many heresies from Benedict XVI, I have limited myself to including only those heresies that are truly noteworthy.
HERESIES IN “GOD IS NEAR US”: - BENEDICT XVI DENIES THAT WE EAT THE FLESH OF THE LORD - BENEDICT XVI APPROVES OF “FOR ALL” IN THE CONSECRATION - OTHER QUOTES OF INTEREST
BENEDICT XVI DENIES THAT WE EAT THE FLESH OF THE LORDThis is a crafty denial of the Real Presence. We do eat the Body and Blood of the Lord. When one receives the Eucharist he should try not to chew on the host, of course. He should receive it and consume it without chewing. But the meaning of Benedict XVI is that we don’t receive Our Lord’s flesh (which is bold heresy). The fact that this is his meaning is further proven when he says: “We do not eat flesh.” This is a clear denial of the Real Presence and Our Lord’s declaration in John 6:54.
BENEDICT XVI APPROVES OF “FOR ALL” IN THE CONSECRATIONThis means that he accepts either “for many” or “for all” in the consecration formula. The mistranslation of “for all” in the vernacular New Masses is a grave change which renders the New Mass invalid. In the formula of consecration, Christ is expressing those for whom His Blood is effective unto the remission of sins. Christ shed His Blood for all, but His Blood is not effective for all unto the remission of sins. It is effective unto the remission of sins only for those who cooperate with grace and enter the Church. That is why not one traditional rite in the history of the Catholic Church ever used “all” in the consecration. And that is why the Catechism of the Council of Trent taught that “for all” WAS DELIBERATELY NOT USED BY OUR LORD WHEN INSTITUTING THE FORMULA OF CONSECRATION!
OTHER QUOTES OF INTERESTThis is an interesting quotation because it shows us that Benedict XVI is fully aware of what is going on and what people are concluding about the Vatican II sect and the New Mass. The fact of the matter is that what he says is true with regard to the New Mass having been made “completely Protestant” and that in it “the real Catholic element” had been destroyed. (Remember, the New Mass was created with the help of six Protestants and specifically to make the Catholic Mass more Protestant, as Paul VI admitted to his good friend Jean Guitton.) Benedict XVI is wrong, of course, when he says that we conclude that the Catholic Church “ceased to be Catholic.” The Catholic Church cannot cease to be Catholic. It is the members of the Vatican II sect who practice this new religion who have ceased to be Catholic. They have left the Catholic Church, reducing her to a remnant in this time of the Great Apostasy.
