AClumsden SSPX and heresy? Totally impossible. And I never said the Confirmation were not valid, I think they are.

@rhemes. Be sure our only desire is to be able to come back home. But we cannot. If only the pope want to give us the choice to not believe Vatican II, everything would be so … [More]
