I have a few questions concerning the below opinions of the Dimond brothers on how to attend mass ,wondering what the take of sedevacantists especially would be, I have emailed the dimonds and are waiting their response .I know most of you don’t like them but I do agree with most of their points except here I have some questions.
How One Could Attend These Churches
While there isn’t an obligation to go to any heretic to receive Communion, here is my personal opinion on how a person could go to a church to receive the sacraments where they believe and pray for Benedict XVI as pope. As stated earlier, at this point in the present apostasy, you are really not going for the Mass, but only to receive the sacraments.
If you decide to go to him to receive Communion and confession, I would not recommend going to the priest’s Mass on time. A person could arrive late, maybe about 10 minutes before Communion is given. It might even be better to go on Monday through Saturday, instead of on Sunday. There is no Sunday obligation to go to a heretic. Also, as we have stated many times before, no one may give donations to these heretical priests. If a person does support them, he or she commits a grave sin and is directly supporting a heretical priest and/or a heretical organization. A person should not pray with the other people at the Mass or liturgy. A person should say the rosary or other prayers privately by themselves and not join in with the prayers or singing of the others present.
When you go to these churches, many have clear glass windows when you enter in the back. A person could pray the rosary out there until they see Holy Communion is about to be distributed. If a person does go into the main part of the church, he or she should sit in the very back.
The only people who can fruitfully receive the sacraments are those who agree with what the Catholic Church teaches. Therefore, a person needs to be in full agreement with Catholic teaching on the following issues:
1) You agree that you must be a Catholic to be saved. You absolutely agree that anyone who is not a Catholic will sadly be lost forever.
2) You agree that Benedict XVI is a heretic, and therefore cannot be a true Catholic pope. You do not go to the New Mass.
3) If you are a married person, you don’t use artificial or “natural” birth control (Natural Family Planning) to deliberately limit the size of your family.
The benefits of receiving Communion are obviously great, for it is to receive the body, blood, soul and divinity of God himself. It’s the greatest action in which a person can take part during his brief earthly existence. The absolute power and graces derived from worthily receiving valid Communion is usually something that is not given much or any weight by those who dogmatically declare that you may not go to a Mass where Benedict XVI is prayed for as pope.
The truth is that Communion is the most necessary thing for a Catholic outside of baptism. We see this from the words of God Himself, “Amen, amen, I say unto you, except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. Whosoever eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.” (John 6) Jesus threatens us, by telling us that we cannot have everlasting life unless we receive Him in communion. Our Lord swears to it. Therefore, if there is a validly ordained priest who meets the criteria mentioned earlier, a person may take advantage and receive the sacraments from him. If not, then a person has to stay home.
He stated we are not going for the mass but only to receive the sacraments, I’m a little confused as to me this seems a little contradictory, if the communion is valid from this heretic priest, why wouldn’t the mass be also?
Then their belief is no one may give donations to these heretical priests. I’m aware that past popes have declared it a sin to support heretics, but that was before Vatican 2 where everyone had a valid church to go to. Now in this present apostasy I can only attend 1 SSPX church to receive the sacraments, I had my son baptized there and gave a financial gift. Am I going to be condemned to hell for this?
