The Vote for Women Bishops

Everyone knew this was coming. The suprise for me is the number of the Synod in favour. The numbers can be seen on Anglican Mainstream. Those Anglicans who still insist that they are trail-blazers and that Rome will eventually come round (presumably with the Orthodox following in another thousand years!) need to read this blog (Jimmy Akin). The teaching regarding the ordination of male priests (only) was declared infallible under Pope John Paul 11 in so far as it is to be seen as part of the Deposit of Faith. The chances of this changing are as good as Elvis Presley becoming the King of England.

So, sadly, the plan of unity with the Chruch of England has finally been scuppered. What remains for those of us committed to unity is a realignment of Orthodox Christians. The only logical way forward is reconciliation under the leadership of the Pope. The Ordinariate is prophetic and hopefully it will now become even more of a reality. As for the relationship of Rome and the Orthodox, there is still much work to do.

  1. An interesting post Father. As an Anglican Convert, it causes a wider question even regarding Anglican priests as such. Jesus's disciples were all Palestinian Jews--without going into "what sort of Jews" as there were many sorts, and Galilee was regarded by the Jerusalem Jews as Londoners regard Yorkshire bumpkins today ! Should all priests therefore be Palestinian Jews we might ask--- I have even seen a post stating that Jesus was an Israeli by a Zionist. Well not in the present use of the word, I argue, though he was descended from the Tribe of Judah. But as for women, I love being a reader in Church and would not want to be a priest,and I go to Bible study with the Christadelphians near your church--which I have attended--with years in between--since 1960----I am nothing if not Ecumenical----they have excellent Bible study and are lovely Christian people, though we do differ sharply on a few matters-----women there are not allowed to preach, like the RC CHURCH, and we put scarves or caps on our heads, which I wish we still did in the RC church-----WITH BEST WISHES AND PRAYERS IN CARMEL Barbara Green

  2. Are you *currently* being sent into Hell forever ... automatically excommunicated (outside) of God’s Catholic Church ?

    Answer: Yes you are ... you can reverse it ... please continue.

    Council of Florence, Session 8, 22 Nov 1439 -- infallible Source of Dogma >
    "Whoever wills to be saved, before all things it is necessary that he holds the Catholic faith. Unless a person keeps this faith whole and undefiled, without doubt he shall perish eternally."

    You must believe the Catholic Dogma to be in the Church ... Dogma you have *never* seen.

    Site > Immaculata-one.com ... infallible Dogma throughout.

    The Catholic Faith *is not* Bible interpretation ... it is the Catholic infallible Sources of Dogma. The Catholic Church didn’t even define the Bible’s New Testament Canon until 397 A.D. at the Council of Carthage.

    Can a group which enforces the opposite, the opposite, and the opposite of the Catholic unchangeable Dogma be the Catholic Church?

    No, it cannot possibly be the Catholic Church ... and promotion of the opposite of the Catholic Dogma is exactly what the vatican-2 heretic cult does ... and has been doing since it’s founding on 8 December 1965 at the Vatican.

    The vatican-2 heresy does not have the Office of the Papacy ... only the Catholic Church has the Papacy.

    The Dogma cannot “change” or be “reversed” ... God does not “change”.

    The founding documents of the vatican-2 heretic cult … the “vatican-2 council” documents … have well over 200 heresies *against* prior defined unchangeable Dogma. Every (apparent) bishop at the “council” approved the mountain of heresy, which caused their automatic excommunication, see Section 13.2 of the below site.

    Section 12 > Anti-Christ vatican-2 heresies (50 listed) ... followed by many Catholic corrections.

    Sections 13 and 13.1 > Photographic *proof* of heresy at the Vatican.

    Because of … the Catholic Dogma on automatic excommunication for heresy or for physical participation in a heretic cult (such as the v-2 cult) …

    … we were all placed, body and soul, *outside* of Christianity (the Catholic Church) on 8 December 1965 … the close date of the “council”.

    Section 13.2 > Catholic Dogma on automatic excommunication for heresy or participating in a heretic cult such as ... vatican-2, lutheran, methodist, evangelical, etc.

    Section 107 > St. Athanasius (died 373 A.D.) ... “Even if the Church were reduced to a handful ...” - - during the “arian” heresy ... we are there again, but worse.

    Section 13.3 > Matt 16:18, Gates of Hell scripture ... is *not* about the Office of the Papacy ... four Dogmatic Councils defined it ... that heresy will not cause the Dogma to disappear.

    Section 13.4 > The vatican-2 heretic cult does not have the Office of the Papacy only the Catholic Church has the Papacy.

    Section 13.6 > The Catholic Dogma on Jurisdiction and Automatic Excommunication for heresy define that ... God has allowed Catholic Jurisdiction ... for Mass and Confession to disappear from the world. There is no such thing as Catholic Mass outside of the Catholic Church.

    Non-Catholic heresies such as “vatican-2”, “sspx”, “sspv”, “cmri”, etc. ... do not have Catholic Mass.

    Section 19.1 > Dogma on Abjuration for *re-entering* Christianity (the Catholic Church) … after being automatically excommunicated. A Formal Abjuration is provided here also.

    Section 10.2 > Returning to a state of grace, in places and times when Confession is not available, like now.

    Second Council of Constantinople, 553 A.D. -- infallible Source of Dogma >
    "The heretic, even though he has not been condemned formally by any individual, in reality brings anathema on himself, having cut himself off from the way of truth by his heresy."

    Blessed John Eudes, died 1680 >
    “The greatest evil existing today is heresy, an infernal rage which hurls countless souls into eternal damnation.”

    This is a joint initiative with the Maronite Church. A step in the right direction in terms of what Vassula's messages said about unity?
