So, I was just curious:
There is another thread going that in entering into a discussion of which sede groups are legit, good, wacko, etc.
Question: There seems to be a strong preference on this forum for the CMRI. Why is that so?
I would have thought that the former SSPX sedes would have the most followers, and the CMRI the fewest (because of the Thuc validity issue).
Why not CMRI, just because some want to believe in the Thuc "issue", is their problem. There are just as many if not more information that prove Thuc is valid.
CMRI has proven over and over that they represent a large part of the remnant Catholic church, it is as if God is protecting them from the lies the world tries to spin. Just as the Church has always continued in spite of the evil forces against it, so CMRI, also stands, and will as long as it preaches sound doctrine.
CMRI IS the Church, an order, within the Church. Just as St. Athanasius in his letter to his flock states. "EVEN IF CATHOLICS FAITHFUL TO TRADITION ARE REDUCED TO A HANDFUL, THEY ARE THE ONES WHO ARE THE TRUE CHURCH
OF JESUS CHRIST."
(source: Coll. seleta SS. Ecci. Patrum, Cailiau and Guillou, Vlol. 32, pp. 411-412)
Not to say, they are the only order, but since you asked about CMRI...
As I said previously in another thread, the problem with many traditional Catholics is, they do not see their priests as being The Church. This however, is not my problem. CMRI in spite of what others here like to spin, is THE CHURCH.
