All aussies out there, gotta love the title. Very Pauline Hanson (laughs to self)…
Sorry Mary, i really want this answered.
Look at this site.
I have a sneaking suspicion that it is sedevacantist, but, be aware, THIS WILL NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, BE A THREAD FOR DISCUSSION OF SEDEVACANTISM, SINCE IT IS BANNED.
Read only the section dealing with the apparent contradiction, do not worry about the question and reply section - too dangerous to be written here.
Before the code was changed by JPII, it said sacraments could not be given to any non-catholic.
Now, it says that they can be given to Eastern Orthodox, and even protestants in some instances.
In my understanding, this is a rule of faith, not a discipline.
Why did JPII change this?
Can anyone explain?
