hehehe...wow! Now Pope Michael I is on the ban wagon "against" the CMRI and Communicatio in Sacris.
Here is a video to this new video he published on youtube
I attend CMRI
Regarding this particular video - there are several glaring weaknesses and discrepancies and 1/2 Truths.
First - Father Cordova a CMRI Priest told me specifically that I could attend SSPX masses and that they are Valid Masses.
Second - I happen to know that John Lane - creator of Bellarmine Forums and who holds to the Sedevacantist position likewise has attended SSPX Masses.
There is a long standing feud with certain individuals we call "Home Aloners" because of this. But where John and his family live - they have no Sedevacantist chapels nearby so what are they to do? Go without the Sacraments or with infrequent sacraments?
Its a decision that is difficult to make. CMRI Has chosen the prudent path. Ultimately , GOD Will decide. As Catholics - it is up to us to obey the Commandments of GOD as best we can.
So should we instead say to this pseudo Pope - that CMRI is the only surviving Catholic Group and that no other Catholics survive outside of the CMRI?
Apparently that is what he advocates. No , instead the CMRI Position is one of retreat - we have retreated into sedevacantism to preserve the Catholic way of life and the Sacraments and the Faith - relying on Supplied jurisdiction according to Divine Law rather than Ecclesiastic obedience to doubtful usurpers until this time of trial ends.
Legalists always want to insist upon the CMRI justifying itself through canon law.
Since the stance is one of preservation and always has been - the CMRI Has never insisted that it is the only catholic entity on earth - but rather - has sought to remain in a holding pattern fully acknowledging that other scattered groups exist with Valid Sacraments and that the Church has been attacked in the hierarchy and that in GODS time - the Papacy will emerge - for no one knows if a true POPE exists or its an interregnum. We do know that Cardinal Siri was validly elected Pope rather than John the XXIII. And that since that time irregularities have existed which deviate from the past teachings of Holy Mother the Church.
The fact that this individual claims the Holy Papacy and thus insists upon Ecclesiastic obedience - merely exposes his position as just another legalist. If he can demonstrate lineage to Cardinal Siri - then perhaps we could take him serious - but he obviously is merely attemting to create further division in the Ranks of Good Catholics who merely want to Honor GOD with living a good Catholic life and abiding in the Sacraments.
Our Lord Said - "He who is not with me is against me" CMRI is not a legalistic entity like some of the cult like groups and will engage in open discussions with any serious Catholics or Catholic Groups who wish to inquire about our Theological Position and the reason for taking it. We are not the only Catholic entity left in the world. We are merely one that has taken a theological stance for preservation.
