  • They were married in the US by Latin priests since the state had no eastern church, which by the canons invalidated it anyway

  • And in the above example, assuming the Eastern priests gave them all kinds of marriage preparation, how do they not know the weight of their marriage VOWS?  How did they not know divorce wasn't wrong?  I don't buy this.  Marriage as a lifetime committment has been culturally/globally-wide since the beginning of time.  If they truly "didn't get it", then they must've been partially retarded.

    Well, unfortunately, there's too much intermingling between Eastern Rite Catholics and their Orthodox counterparts, and the Orthodox believe that people can be divorced twice, married three times.  I'm guessing that perhaps they heard something along those lines from their Orthodox counterparts.

  • Here is an example posted by you that directly contradicts your poor catechesis theory and confirms what I stated that it is very convenient "not to know".

    No, this priest encourages Confession, but at no point has he ever spoken of why it's necessary, and under what conditions (i.e mortal sin).  I'll have to bring that to his attention.  I've noticed a severe lack of theological "precision" among Eastern Rite Catholics, including their clergy.  On the other hand, this same priest gave a terrific sermon denouncing the notion that people can be saved by sincerity without Christ and outside the Church.  He spoke more strongly on this subject than I had ever heard from any non-Feeneyite Traditional priest.

  • Yes, lots of Latin Rite refugees after Vatican II to the Eastern Rites. 
    It can go the other way, too. I saw a Ukrainian church get so fed up with a liberal N.O. biritual priest that several families started going to the "unapproved" Latin Mass in the area. The Ukrainian families went back when the Ukrainian church got a new Byzantine-trained priest.

    This thread has strayed from the initial topic.

    Ya think?  :laugh1:

    Yes, it got into the Eastern Rites due to several mentions of tattoos being commonly used by Eastern Rite Christians in Muslim territories.

  • I though it was because someone claimed their priest said that Our Lady of Fatima said that 2 and 3 year olds go to hell.  This transitioned into a discussion of sacrament being administered to the very young.  It was a good discussion on the age of reason though.

    I know, that's why I asked for proof of that statement

  • Did not Our Lady of Fatima say that there are many people in Hell, including children as young as two and three?
    .
    Did not St. Therese of Liseau say that she had reached the age of reason by three years of age?
