Seems there is a lot of commotion about the Vatican's coup of Franciscans of the Immaculate.
Admittedly, I have not intimately followed recent events on this story.
I did in the beginning. In light of the Pope's statements about practicing and faithful Catholics in love with the doctrines and Sacred Liturgy that are weird, I dug into the substance to see if I could find sedevacanists.
When it became clear to me the order indeed had an infestation of sedevacanists, I checked out.
The story has grown legs (again) over the last week, so I checked back in.
Wading through the emotional stuff to look for substance, I found the source of concern: The Franciscans of the Immaculate have been asked to take an oath the Sacramental validity of the Novus Ordo.
And the burden of that would be what?
It is valid.
There are a few places and times when it is not - Paulist Center and other places that are using invalid matter, not saying the Canon - but Pope Paul VI had the power to bind the Novus Ordo Missae as valid and so valid it is.
The heresy of saying it isn't valid is about the power to bind.
If you reject the pontifical power to bind you're as guilty of heresy as "women's ordination" groups.
It's the same doctrinal flaw.
It's valid. Say it and move on.
The Novus Ordo is valid. The teaching of heresies, demoralization and amoralization, sophomoric, lame and clown antics distract those who see and pray the mystical journey from the Praetorium through His Execution and Resurrection and a Canonical right to refuge exists. Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum.
The Novus Ordo is valid. Here's a copy of bulletins announcing liturgies themed for clapping fornication, priests bringing sorcerers so you can talk to your dead relatives, homilies, pamphlets, programs and catechetical resources filled with apostacy, archdiocescan contracts outsourcing abortion for profit. Here's a copy of America Magazine.
You know what Pope Francis has done and said about the operating schism within?
You know what oaths he's asked the operating schismatics to take about the Sacred Doctrines of Our Church?
Rather, Pope Francis has conveyed that he can't make judgments about these theologically disordered individuals. When one refuses to make judgments, one is not accountable to take actions to discipline them or ask them to take oaths.
But Pope Francis has made judgments about Catholics practicing and evangelizing doctrines that guide prohibitions against immorality and killing people. He's caricatured them as sourpusses who are obsessed with small-minded rules.
See where faithful Catholics are going with this?
The fact that you are standing here on behalf of the Pope asking faithful Catholics who have fled the undisciplined and operating internal schism for the refuge on Motu Proprio Sommorum Pontificum to take an oath of fidelity - rather than asking those operating the internal schism - adds to the fuel to the speculation that Pope Francis is about to dismantle the structure and power of the Roman Catholic Church, formalize and memorialize the counterfeit church and schism that has passive-aggressively been empowered through their lack of discipline and action and hand it over to the dogs.
The Novus Ordo is valid. Here's another copy Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum for His Holiness. Please inform him that the days when we sit in the pews of the operating schism and counterfeit church under his or any other Pope's watch are over. Gonzo.
This is a case wherein His Holiness is all mixed up about that judgmental policy he has going on. He has our support and prayers but we are not as stupid as we look.
The Novus Ordo is valid.
Any more questions?
If that is all I shall wish you adieu.
Good day to you sir.
I don't mean to suggest that the active oppression of those in the Chanceries or at the Vatican doesn't exist. We know that it does and it is a real threat.
Motu Proprio in this diocese (and perhaps most) is indeed obfuscated and obstructed by the underhanded apostates in power at the Chancery.
But hitching the wagons to sedevacanists does serious harm to the cause of freedom from the reprobates operating the schismatic counterfeit within.
Moreover, the situation in this diocese has them over the barrel. Too many parishes, not enough priests. Operation Egg on Face is in full swing. We have snitches planted everywhere. They can do nothing in the darkness. Every attempt at persecution of faithful Catholics is disclosed in the public square. The corrupt have limited efficacy to retaliate.
The Franciscans of the Immaculate don't want to say the Novus Ordo is valid?
There's something else going down. IMHO.
