Kevin. I agree with your assessment that the author seems to shift among extremes. In my diocese traditional parishes aren’t permitted but we do have two TLM Sunday Masses. But I am fortunate in that my Novus Ordo parish where I go during the week has wonderful, faithful priests and many holy faithful people. Some are enduring hardships and sufferings which are unbearable yet they continue with … More
And she never thought about being united to Rome in a Latin Mass parish (the Fraternity or the Institute). The choice is NOT between sedevacantism/Latin Mass vs Rome/Novus Ordo. You can be united to Rome and have the Latin Mass. it seems like she’s still confused.

I believe the Church has to determine whether or not Bergoglio is a heretic and if he is indeed the pope. Meanwhile we have Scripture, the catechism, the Church Fathers and the saints, 2,000 years of consistent Church teaching, the Mass, the Sacraments, devotions. I cannot deviate from all this no matter what the Vatican may say.
Oh I thought Bergoglio was sleeping soundly after this book came out. That’s what archbishop kissy face said.

Oh and tell me how the catholic church is different from protestants or orthodox. There’s one catholic message? The catholic church is concerned about Christ? Well not any more.
Deal with it. The Catholic Church no longer cares about eternal life and has turned her back on her Saviour Jesus. So if you really believe in Christianity, you need to go underground in a sense - orayer, Mass, sacraments. I exoect NOTHING from the institutional “church”. It’s no longer a church but a leftest NGO and political party.
This Bergoglio is a thug and runs the Vatican like a South American dictator giverns a banana republic. I have long believed that the Catholic Church should NOT be a sovereign entity. So this is what you get when you mix Spiritual and temporal. Heck, just look at the Vatican Bank. That money laundering facility has been corrupt long before Bergoglio.
Let it all happen. The German liberal anti-Church will implode. There is no future in it. Look at all the liberal ptotestant denominations in every country. Attendance, thus revenues, are WAY down. So will happen with the liberal catholic denominations.

BrTomFordeOFMCap I am not questioning the indefectibility of the Catholic Church nor thT Christ is Her Head. There have been anti-popes before in our long history and I am proposing that perhaps Bergoglio is one of them. There are several objective reasons why he might be an anti-pope and because some of us don’t care for him or his heresies isn’t one if them. What will you do if he should he … More

What if Jorge isn’t the pope? What if the pope is still B XVI? In this case Bergoglio might already be excommunicated.
