File 142998655

The Synod on the Family is not so much a doctrinal synod as a pastoral synod, as was the case with the Second Vatican Council,” declared Archbishop Bruno Forte, Special Relator of the Synod on the Family, at a press conference on October 5.

July 2003 - Superior General's Letter #64

A non-catholic way of thinking has been the norm in the Church since Vatican II. This non-catholic way of thinking is the source of the destruction of all that is traditional. This new way of thinking has destroyed the religious and the priestly life. The Pope's encyclical on the Eucharist and Cardinal Castrillon`s Celebration of the Tridentine Mass are not a return to Tradition but rather a mixture of truth and error. Rome desires that we accept truth mixed with error as a condition of our “regularization”.
