And yet God has allowed it, presumably through His permissive will. How do you account for that.....
In the same way that God reprobates due to His consequent will (see St. Thomas)...
In order to achieve an effect
there must be a cause.
the Novus Ordo, the event (cause, deception)
to make another event (
the effect, loss of soul)
This is where I agree 100% with Father Wathen, there is no salvation in the Novus Ordo because it isn't Catholic.
