+ABL from 1982-83 (PDF attached)
"We must conserve the true canon law. In the instruction in the new canon law they talk about 'Eucharistic Hospitality. What is this 'Eucharistic Hospitality'?? It means that when" a Protestant comes to receive Holy Communion and he says I have the True Catholic Faith in the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist, and if he says that, then you must give him Communion.
That is incredible! It is impossible, impossible. He has no other Catholic Faith, only in the Real Presence, and so we must give him Communion. He may have no Faith in the Sacrifice of the Mass, he has no Faith in the papacy, he has no Faith in...
Sanctifying Grace ...and we must still give him Communion? Impossible! It is in the new canon -law.
We cannot use this canon law. It is the same in all the other books that come from this reform of the Council of Vatican II.' If you have some other questions you can ask Fr. Williamson or me... I am ready to give you an answer..."
And this excerpt from an Econe spiritual confrence in 1983, in which +ABL explains the need to reject this Code:
"These are the five characteristics of this new ecclesiology that is in Vatican II. And it is marked in the Pope's speech, in the Constitution which presents the new code of canon law, It is he himself who says these things. People of God, Communion, Service, Collegiality, Ecumenism. These are the characteristics of the new ecclesiology of Vatican II. It is clear. It is clear that it is the continuation of the work that was done by Vatican II in the liturgy, in catechisms and in the Bible, the ecumenical bible, the famous TOB, the ecumenical translation of the Bible.
So, what do we have to think about that? Well, that's because this canon law is unacceptable.
There is no new Ecclesiology in the Church. We are not going to give a new definition to the Church, if... Then we were wrong for 2000 years. The Church did not know what it was for 2000 years. Suddenly, it became ecumenism, collegiality, communion. Communion of what, of who, with whom, with what?Then we will have to keep the old canon law
by taking the fundamental principles and compare with the new canon law to judge the new canon law, just as we keep Tradition to judge also the new liturgical books."
And on this subject, I wanted to say on the occasion of our assessment of the law. As long as a reform like that of Pope John XXIII does not affect our faith, does not diminish our faith, sincerely I do not believe, well, if it does not affect the faith, we must still recognize the authority of the Supreme Pontiff who dictates this book, this new breviary and submit ourselves to it, even if we have a greater affection for the breviary or the missal of Saint Pius X. There is still obedience to be had as long as it does not touch, as long as it does not diminish our faith.
Why precisely, I now return to the conferences, why, in my opinion, it is impossible for us to accept the canon law as it has been published,
because it is precisely in the line of Vatican II and in the line of the reforms of Vatican II. The Pope himself says so. In this new ecclesiology, which does not correspond to traditional ecclesiology and therefore indirectly affects our faith and risks dragging us into at least a certain number of essential points of law, in heresies, favours heresy, as does liturgical reform which also favours heresy."
[ABL then goes on to paint an analogy between the new CIC and the new Mass, showing that just as we must reject the latter a a threat to the faith, so too we reject this CIC which implements a new ecclesiology.]
