This is a very important video for Catholics to watch and consider deeply. A point to take away from this video is the fact that Pope St. Gregory the Great forbade Catholics from praying for deceased heretics, and it's astounding to think that today so many so-called traditional Catholics consider this uncharitable, especially if the deceased is a close relative. It shows how Christ fulfils the prophecy of Simeon that He would be a sign and a stumblingblock for many. This distinction between true charity of pure love of God and His Faith, and false love of a human memory should sober anyone who believes that the Elect were to be tested by the Judge Himself in the last days. "And another of his disciples said to him: Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father. But Jesus said to him: Follow me, and let the dead bury their dead." (Matt 8:21-23) And St. Peter says, "To you therefore that believe, he is honour: but to them that believe not, the stone which the builders rejected, the same is made the head of the corner: And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of scandal, to them who stumble at the word, neither do believe, whereunto also they are set." (1st Peter, 2:7-8) And to Mary it was prophesied by Simeon in the Temple, " Behold this child is set for the fall, and for the resurrection of many in Israel, and for a sign which shall be contradicted;" (Luke 2:34) Catholics should consider these things when MHFM is maligned by those claiming to be "Traditional Catholics" when they have merely repeated what proceeds from the mouth of the Savior Himself.
I have never seen anyone even come close to refuting your arguments. They are bulletproof. Thank God for the work you are doing.
Drives the point home
Another excellent video… This really drives the point home about that wicked antipope.
Laying on of hands, New Rite
Why are post-Vatican II priests invalid? Isn’t the laying of hands sufficient?
Hello. No, the laying on of hands is not sufficient, if there is a defect of form or intention. Simply put, the New Rite of Ordination promulgated by Paul VI eliminated from the traditional rite every mandatory prayer and ceremony that signified the unique power of the sacrificing priesthood, along the same lines as the Anglican Rite. The Anglican Rite was declared invalid by Pope Leo XIII in his 1896 bull Apostolicae Curae precisely because it manifested that pattern of deletion. The Anglican Rite was invalid, Leo XIII taught, due to a defect of intention that is connected to using a defective form/rite that eliminates references to the unique powers of the priesthood. The same applies to the new rite of Paul VI. We discuss the matter, and refute objections, in these videos:
The Vastness Of The Deception
This is an unflinching dose of truth... Thank you. Watching Ratzinger be lionized by the Novus Ordo 'conservatives' has produced a visceral, heart-breaking awareness of the vastness of the deception. The roots, my friends, are very deep.
