Yet this “segmentation” was unquestioned by Leo XIII, who argued in Sapientiae Christianae that we owe special fidelity and love to the homeland into which we were born.

https://www.theamericanconservative.com/roman-catholicism-and-political-romanticism/  this “segmentation” was unquestioned by Leo XIII, who argued in  Sapientiae Christianae  that we owe special fidelity and love to the homeland into which we were born. Pius X did not hesitate to put it more bluntly: “If Catholicism were an enemy of the homeland, it would not be a divine religion.” The globalist unity of the Tower of Babel, Dandrieu claims, should be countered by Catholicism's rooted universalism: the spiritual unity of nations anchored in their cultures. Looking for the sources of this “contamination” of true Catholic universalism by globalism, Dandrieu points to personalism. This intellectual current has detached Catholicism from the notion of the common good, shifting the focus to the individual. While the ideas of Jacques Maritain and his disciples sought to criticize liberalism, they inadvertently led to its triumph within the church. In a personalist vein, John XXIII defined

Cecil blandly told the Spanish ambassador that he was investigating the question of who owned the money. In fact he was in touch with the bankers who had loaned Philip the money, persuading them to declare that the money would go to Elizabeth instead of to Philip. For years Alba and Philip tried to pry the money out of Cecil, naturally to no avail. Meanwhile the Spanish troops in the Netherlands went unpaid

(This is another installment from ‘ ‘Christ the King: Lord of History, by Anne W. Carroll. The Catholic Commentator is serializing the book with the permission of the publisher, Prow Books, Franciscan-Maryville Press, 1600 W. Park Ave., Libertyville, 111. 60048) When the full horror of this “Calvinist Fury’’ became clear to Philip, he called together his advisers of the Royal Council. One man dominated the deliberations: the Duke of Alba, tall, straight, harsh and outspoken, a deeply dedicated Catholic. The Calvinists, Alba argued, were indulging their greed for wealth by sacking the churches, but what was worse, they were committing blasphemy and sacrilege against God and His Church. Spain must take a firm, uncompromising stand, using whatever military force was necessary to put a stop to these outrages. Philip heeded this advice, putting Alba at the head of a Spanish army and sending it into the Low Countries to fight in the service of Christ the King. But Protestant troops from all

The problem with canon law is that there is no canon law stating why St. Athanatius is a canonized saint and a father and doctor of the Church. It’s theologians who say he is not in hell because if a prelate fails to condemn error as pope Liberius failed to condemn the error of Arianism by allowing Arians to be bishops in full communion with himself

https://akacatholic.com/fake-trad-litmus-test/ Ratio MAY 1, 2020 The problem with canon law is that there is no canon law stating why St. Athanatius is a canonized saint and a father and doctor of the Church. It’s theologians who say he is not in hell because if a prelate fails to condemn error as pope Liberius failed to condemn the error of Arianism by allowing Arians to be bishops in full communion with himself, the faithful have a right to withdraw obedience from him the pope as St. Athanatius did. This is a point of doctrine pointed out by theologians not Church law written in canon law! On the other hand, Cardinal Burke has a moral obligation to be honest and point out that if Archbishop Lefebvre believed the Church was in the state of necessity even if he erred in judgement, according to canon law, he is not schismatic nor are the bishops he consecrated! It does not help that SSPX leaders act like they are in schism with marriage deception. It does not help that the booklet writt

Hadn’t Archbishop Lefebvre based much of his rejection of the post-conciliar magisterium on Pope Leo XIII’s magisterium?

https://www.catholicworldreport.com/2022/01/10/why-i-left-the-society-of-st-pius-x-an-open-letter-to-fr-golaski/ The authorities of the SSPX tried to do damage control as they had done with “the Nine” in 1983. Ironically, the first man to be expelled was the one who had been in charge of damage control for the first splinter group: Bishop Richard Williamson. Why was he expelled? For following the example of Archbishop Lefebvre, and refusing obedience to his superiors in the name of truth. Other priests started leaving the Society, many more than in 1983, where they coalesced to form a new “resistance”. This included my own beloved Dominicans of Avrillé. What was I to do? The Society was my family, the one true “remnant” of the Church. But so were the Dominicans in Avrillé and the priests and bishop who had left. Should I stay with the first resistance, or should I join the resistance to the resistance? The emotional pain and confusion I went through during this time is indescribable. D

Mick Jagger Gathers No Mosque  said... The modern Popes, beginning with Pius Xii (Mediator Dei) are all in opposition to Qui Primum and especially the Popes of The 60s Synod. Paul VI didn't t even legally impose the Lil' Licit Liturgy and subsequent Popes also violated Quo Primum - especially he who abdicated. His Motu Proprio was a usurpation of the authority of Quo Primum. He too acted ultra vires in claiming the authority to "allow" the Real Mass. Sorry, Father Ratzinger, the authority to celebrate the Real Mass has existed for centuries and you tried to circumscribe that right recognised by Pius V. The SSPX does not rely on the SP of he who abdicated. It recognizes Qu Primu as the authority, rightly so. 9:35 am, July 20, 2021 Mick Jagger Gathers No Mosque  said...
