Hi Cantarella!  I was just wondering whatever happened to you a few days ago.

Fighting Errors in the Modern World / Re: The Vicar of Christ
« Last post by cassini on Today at 05:01:42 AM »
It is from a known fake news site and this site is the source of all other places the story appears.

This article says it is fake news: http://www.politifact.com/punditfact/statements/2017/nov/22/yournewswirecom/no-proof-pope-francis-said-jesus-metaphorical/

Besides, it does not sound like Pope Francis; it is not ambiguous enough.  If it were him, he would say it without saying it.

Thanks jaynek, you are absolutely correct, far too literal, how does one worm out of it.

Novus Ordo to a great degree has replaced the Sacred Heart and St. Margaret Mary with Divine Mercy (image of Divine Mercy shows no heart)  and Faustina.
I think the reason why is that whereas the Sacred Heart of Jesus was traditionally a symbol of combativity and militancy for Christendom, Divine Mercy represents happy, unconditional "mercy" towards sinners (without justice). It explains the drastic changes in approach between pre & post Vatican II Catholicism. Sacred Heart of Jesus is militant in spirit and used in all counter-revolutionary movements since the time it was revealed to St. Margaret Mary back the 17th century; but the whole Divine Mercy devotion does not represent the Catholic spirit at all. "The Catholic spirit is one of making constant reparation in penance for our sins, of praying for the graces of God, for the mercy of God in this life".

TIA has a great article contrasting the two devotions here: http://www.traditioninaction.org/polemics/F_07_DM_01.htm

Baptism of Desire and Feeneyism / Re: The Catechumen
« Last post by Augustinus on Yesterday at 11:20:14 PM »
See, I have read “bread of life”, “desire and deception”, “Loyola’s and the Cabots” and “they fought the good fight”.

All these books have one weakness. They do not address the issue of the consensus of theologians and scholastics. Where’s THAT book?

I agree this nun is not the real Sister Lucy , but the same one that is in all the new books on Fatima, including the one
Bishop Fellay held up in his recent " Fatima center Russian Talk". This women most definitely looks 73 some women don't 
wrinkle but just sag and you can see the hanging jowls and chin line on this sister Lucy. I think they have replaced sister Lucy  around 1960,
And this fake Lucy has just grown old but is the same women.

Catholic Living in the Modern World / Re: Laymen baptisms
« Last post by Cantarella on Yesterday at 10:56:04 PM »
Anyone can baptize, even heathens. This is true, especially in cases when there is a danger of death. One cannot baptize oneself, though.

 
From the Council of Florence, Exaltate Deo: 

Quote
In case of necessity not only a priest or a deacon, but also a layman, or a woman, yes even a pagan and a heretic can baptize, so long as he preserves the form of the Church.                    
 
 
From the Council of Trent, Canons on Baptism (Canon 4):

Quote
If anyone says that baptism, even that given by heretics in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, with the intention of doing what the Church does, is not true baptism, let him be anathema.

You'd think they'd try a little harder to find someone that actually looked like her.  It's pathetic really.
I agree that they could have done a better job.

Baptism of Desire and Feeneyism / Re: The Catechumen

By the way, not even Suprema Haec Sacra accused Fr. Feeney of heresy.  The only people who accuse him of heresy are people who claim no authority in the Church whatsoever.  Not even the Conciliar sect hierarchy officially claims he was guilty of heresy.  At worst he was judged by pre-V2 authorities to be in error.  The heresy word came from the secular press.  They were the ones that characterized it that way.  But that's not the position of the Holy Office prior to V2 much less is it the position of Pope Pius XII.
Thank you!

Crisis in the Church / Re: I am considering sedevacantism
« Last post by Cantarella on Yesterday at 10:37:23 PM »
Ironically, almost all of Fr. Feeney's followers accept the validity of the new pseudo-sacraments.  If I'm not mistaken only the West Coast branch reject the new sacraments.  
There are a few of us who no longer do. This in regards to Confirmation, Eucharist, Extreme Unction, & Orders.

West Coast here  :)
