  • As far as I know only 2. Brothers Michael and what's his face.

    No priests, they receive communion from an EO place.

    Sounds more like a farm owned by 2 people who are related to each other, a family. But what do I know ?

  • There are no actual monks there.  At most, there are two people who think they are monks.  

    This post is by Sigismund.  I forgot to click on the box below.

  • Do you think the same about the other groups of "monks" and "nuns" who operate without Vatican approval such as the SSPX-friendly "monks" in New Mexico? Or do you just think that about the Dimond Brothers?

    Ha ha!  These are guys who predicted the world would end in 2000.  

    Sedevacantism is just their latest thang they've latched on to.  It makes sense, since there appears no end to sedevacantism.  Ever.  It's a perfect market for them.

    The difference being that SSPX has valid bishops.

    The Dimonds are just a pair of convert new agers without a nod from anyone in official type of capacity.

    They are what could be called self-ordained.

    All of the religious orders who resist the Novus Ordo are self-ordained. None of them have permission to act as a religious order from a true Pope. It is not fair to call the Dimond Brothers illegitimate and to accept other groups which are also acting on their own and are no more legitimate than the Dimond brothers, without any authority given to them by the Church.

    No, not all religious orders that resist are self-ordained.

    The ordinations of both the priests and the bishops in SSPX are recognized as valid by the Novus Ordo Vatican.

    In fact, stating that they are self-ordained would be considered heresy because of apostolic succession.

    I did not mean to say that they were self-"ordained" as priests, but meant to say that even though the resisting religious orders have truly ordained priests they are acting on their own authority with no permission from the Church.

    In order for a person to claim to be a member of an approved religious order, a professed member of that order must be the one to approve and accept the novice, accept him in his temporary vows and finally to hear his final vows.

    No one can self-start a religious order, and claim that they are part of the order established by the Church.  This go for any group, Dimonds or not.

    They receive the Sacraments from an Eastern Rite Catholic parish, not from an Eastern Orthodox one.

    I think that about the Dimond Brothers.  I know of no reason to regard the SSPX affiliated Dominicans, for example, as not being real fairs.  I just think the Dimonds are crazy.

    So do the Old Catholics and the schismatic Orthodox. Validity is not the heart of the issue.
