CDF Prefect Müller: "Lefebvrians are de facto schismatic"
Ah, OK. Let me see if I really understand this.
Yep, got it. All the SSPX has to do is embrace sodomite priests and bishops (but not too closely!!); accept every single word of a “pastoral” council that is not binding on the faithful; accept post-Vatican II ecumenism that prays side-by-side with African witch doctors and asks no one to convert to the True Faith; accept the new Catechism (that teaches that we and the Muslims worship the same God); agree that the Novus Ordo is somehow good for the Faith.
Still shaking my head at modern Rome’s complete stupidity.
From Rorate Caeli:
From the interview granted by the Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Abp. Gerhard Müller, to Italian daily Corriere della Sera, published this Sunday:
With the failure of discussions, what is the position of the Lefebvrians?
"The canonical excommunication due to the illicit [episcopal] ordination was lifted from the bishops, but the sacramental one remains, de facto, for the schism; because they have removed themselves away from communion with the Church. That being said, we do not close the door, ever, and we invite them to reconcile. But they also must change their approach and accept the conditions of the Catholic Church and the Supreme Pontiff as the ultimate criterion of belonging."
What can you say about the meeting between Francis and [Fr. Gustavo] Gutiérrez on September 11?
"Theological currents go through difficult moments, things are debated and clarified. But Gutiérrez has always been orthodox. We Europeans must get over the notion of being the center, without, on the other hand, underestimating ourselves. To broaden the horizons, to find a balance: I have learned this from him. Opening up to a concrete experience: seeing povery and also the joy of the people. A Latin American Pope has been a heavenly sign. Gustavo was overwhelmed. I was as well. And also Francis."
