Jurisdiction - Quick Intro [9 min. audio]
This is a quick introduction to the controversy and the importance of Jurisdiction.
Jurisdiction Part 2 - facing up to the facts of the GWS [18 min. audio]
This part begins to get into the facts of the Great Western Schism. It shows how these facts completely refute the advocates of the “No Jurisdiction Position.” They have no response to these points. This section addresses and refutes Gerry Matatics on “extraordinary mission” and more.
Jurisdiction Part 3 - More devastating facts [40 min. audio]
This section further pins down and refutes the advocates of the “No Jurisdiction Position” on the point of the Great Western Schism. This part shows how Gerry Matatics cannot address the facts, so instead he dishonestly shuffles them to the side. This section also addresses many other points, including epikeia, the external and internal forum, and a book called Supplied Jurisdiction According to Canon 209.
This book, which Gerry Matatics wrongly says “devastates” the other side, actually devastates his position and that of other advocates of the “No Jurisdiction Position.” This audio covers, with supporting citations from the book, the extent of supplied jurisdiction, doubt of fact, doubt of law, colored title, putative title and more. It explains what these mean and why they are significant to this issue. The facts in this section serve to further completely refute the schismatic “No Jurisdiction Position.”
Jurisdiction Part 4 - More points and La Salette [20 min. audio]
Note: This part 4 contains some important information. It will not be as interesting for our general readers as part 5 or some other sections. The information in this part is for those who have a deeper interest in these topics. This part also covers a controversy that some of our readers have asked about: did the Holy Office, before Vatican II, condemn commenting on the Message of La Salette? Hear our response to this issue. This section also contains some more important points from Supplied Jurisdiction According to Canon 209. It covers intrinsic cessation of the law. It also covers the dilemma of canonists in determining the precise extent of common error, etc. and how their comments serve to further obliterate the schismatic “No Jurisdiction Position.”
This section refutes the advocates of the “No Jurisdiction Position” on consecrating bishops without a papal mandate. It covers what Pius XII said about that matter. It refutes Gerry Matatics’ outrageous attempt to justify his clear violation of the normal canons against preaching, etc. without permission. It focuses in on their hypocrisy, the laws they violate, and how they condemn themselves out of their own mouths. It also covers lessons from Our Lord and the Machabees which further refute the “No Jurisdiction” schismatics.
Gerry Matatics' heresies against the salvation dogma [40 min. audio]
This audio proves that Gerry Matatics rejects the dogma Outside the Church There is No Salvation. He rejects it by accepting as Catholics those who reject it. It proves that he is actually a Christ-denier, by recognizing as Catholics those who believe that Jesus Christ is not necessary for salvation. It also proves that he denies the dogma by considering Suprema haec sacra to not be heretical, and by failing to accept the absolute necessity of water baptism. It also proves how he dishonestly tries to deny that he denies the dogma, but is refuted by his own words. Hear the very clips which prove the point. It also examines his position on Geocentrism. This audio shows how his position on Geocentrism undermines and refutes his criticism of our position on the status of the absolute necessity of water baptism. It also refutes his claim that St. Thomas Aquinas did not deny the Immaculate Conception (before it was defined).
