I was just looking back upon some of the banned forum discussions in the past…
I’m sort of regretting having ‘opened a can of worms’. It’s very confusing information. I was just reading a forum post by Peter Vere (?). I know I’ve seen his name before. From what I read, I gather that he was, and remains, a traditionalist.
Why do sedevacantists refer to themselves as Traditional Catholics? Doesn’t it just muddy the waters?
Anyhow, I may be very infantile in my apologetics understanding (I’m no scholar)…but I always put my trust, come ‘hell or high water’ in the promise of the Holy Spirit…and I stick with the belief that the Catholic Church and its Papacy shall not fail, because of the Holy Spirit’s direct intervention, and believe in the doctrine of infallibility, for the purpose of keeping us ‘men’ from destroying Her!
I’d rather stick with debating falsehood within Protestantism. I thought the Orthodox Church debates were difficult! There’s nothing more ‘difficult’ than those wolves that disguise themselves as sheep, so close within our own ranks and, such a relatively ‘fresh’ heresy. Though, years from now, sedevacantists, I predict, will just be a name on a long list of heretics. It’s just disturbing to know that, much like the early Church’s run-ins with heresy and heretics, we’re always going to have to deal with re-introduction to such folks as the Dimond Bros., and the heresy itself.
When it comes down to basics, they are just another group of ‘protestants’ who have come up with yet another ‘apostasy theory’…the church went off the tracks. From that perspective, don’t they doubt themselves? It’s not very original! If we, s Catholics, believe in the promise of the Holy Spirit, doesn’t it seem unlikely that we would have no legitimate Pope?
I don’t want to start up anything that the moderators will object to.
I just wish there was a web site directly opposed to theirs. I guess there’s information out there, directly opposing their objections, but no, one, in particular.
Anyone up for a challenge?
I just get upset every time I see their advertisement or link. It gets a lot of traffic.
Time to put out some warnings!
If you haven’t guessed by now…I do not like the mostholyfamilymonastery.com. And their hatefulness comes through loud and clear. They don’t leave any room for charity (in their attacks on EWTN and little, saintly Mother Angelica), etc.
Makes me see red.
