Man does this bring back memories…not good ones mind you!
I was raised sade-vacantist during my teen years…
If you are going to go mucking around in all that “back-end” matter you better be wearing a mighty high pair of mucking boots!
I listened to Fr.Corapi on EWTN and his theory on all this arguing is to walk away…the ones who are sade-vacantist are not here to listen…they are here to prove a point…theirs.
The others who are arguing in favor of Holy Mother Church are shouting into the wind. A wind of contention…not of the Holy Spirit…for He is not in contentious arguing.
Unless the Spirit moves their hearts to submission, humility and obedience the sade-vacantist will continue to embrace schism and even heresy. Schism that remains obdurate most often falls into heresy!
Logic will not prove your point! Reason will not prove your point!
History will not prove your point.
*My point *you may be asking yourself? Unless they have eyes to see…Humility and obedience…they will not see!
Unless the have ears to hear …grace and submission…they will not hear.
I feel very sorry for these mislead schismatics.
There is so much to learn and become in our Holy Catholic Faith…the spiritual life is so demanding…how is it that we have time for this type of argument…
“For thou art Peter and upon this Rock I will build My church and the gates of Hell WILL NOT PREVAIL.”
“Do you believe that I can do this?
Yes Lord I believe!”
