[quote=ByzCath]I wonder if those who vote yes will have the guts to reply too.
Then we will truly know those who are not Catholic even though they claim to be one.
As Jesus said in Matthew.
21: "Not every one who says to me,
Lord, Lord,' shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. **22:** On that day many will say to me,Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?‘
23: And then will I declare to them, `I never knew you; depart from me, you evildoers.’
Probably not, since they couldn’t defend their position without declaring themselves sedevacantists.
Of course the Chair of Peter is empty now but once a new pope is elected it will be filled. I offer this comment as a pre-emptive strike against the wise guys who will say the Chair of Peter is vacant since the death of John Paul II.
