Who are Members of the Holy Roman Catholic and Apostolic Church? Pope Pius XII articulated the Divine Law on the Matter for all Time. No Heretic, Schismatic, or Apostate. So Where Currently IS the Catholic Church and Who are Its Members?
Pope Pius XII, Mystici Corporis Christi, June 29, 1943:
22. Actually only those are to be included as members of the Church who have been baptized and profess the true faith, and who have not been so unfortunate as to separate themselves from the unity of the Body, or been excluded by legitimate authority for grave faults committed. “For in one spirit” says the Apostle, “were we all baptized into one Body, whether Jews or Gentiles, whether bond or free.” 17 As therefore in the true Christian community there is only one Body, one Spirit, one Lord, and one Baptism, so there can be only one faith. 18 And therefore if a man refuse to hear the Church let him be considered — so the Lord commands — as a heathen and a publican. 19 It follows that those are divided in faith or government cannot be living in the unity of such a Body, nor can they be living the life of its one Divine Spirit.
23. For not every offense, however grave it may be, is such as of its own nature to sever a man from the Body of the Church,as does schism or heresy or apostasy.
In the bible when the angels asked Jesus if He wanted them to pluck out the weeds, the modernists, Jesus said no, I will separate the Catholics from the non-Catholics at harvest lest in plucking out the weeds you pluck out the true crop. The modernist's weeds are not Catholic, even the liberal N.O. Catholics who are invincibly ignorant are Catholic, though they have a great risk of committing sins they know are mortal and will find it hard to be Catholic once they realize their modernist superiors are not Catholic. All the traditional Catholics are Catholic. The different tribes of tradition prove many are mistaken about proper Catholic theology and its true hierarchy, while some of this constitutes heresy, it's most likely material heresy because the different tribes exist in the Church today precisely because we failed to understand the proper hierarchy of Catholic doctrine and principles. It's not a sin to be mistaken about Catholic theology, being mistaken will not render you a non-CatholicReplyDelete
Wrong...did you read the post? Did you read the quote? The Catholic Church infallibly teaches the exact opposite of what you wrote above:Delete
" Actually only those are to be included as members of the Church who have been baptized and profess the true faith, and who have not been so unfortunate as to separate themselves from the unity of the Body,"
"For not every offense, however grave it may be, is such as of its own nature to sever a man from the Body of the Church, as does schism or heresy or apostasy."
The "Eclipse of the Church" which Our Lady of La Salette foretold and the long-prophesied Great Apostasy is right now. In fact ever since 1958 when the diabolical crime of "sede impedita" was perpetrated against a lawfully elected pope. whitesmoke1958.comReplyDelete
"Rome will lose the faith and become the seat of the Antichrist. The Church will be in eclipse. The world will be in dismay." (Our Lady of La Salette, 1846)
Keep to the ancient way and custom of the Church, established by so many saints under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit." (St Angela Merici)
Even if Catholics faithful to Tradition are reduced to a handful, they are the ones who are the true Church of Jesus Christ. (St Athanasius)
“Satan’s masterstroke is to have succeeded in sowing disobedience to Tradition through ‘obedience’ to those who betray it.”
