Ihavejust finished reading the article in the Daily Catholic about Archbishop Thuc. I have seen this name in print before but never really new anything about him. I am simply awestruck by this remarkable human being. That was a simply wonderful atricle that Mr. Cain wrote and I am going to the links to read more on this saintly person. By the way, if anyone feels that have to say anything against him, do not bother, I do not want to start an argument nor put anyone in danger of calumny by spreading lies about this man. Enough has been done to slander him by the reptiles of Vatican II. Don't anyone tell me that the snakes won't slither to the top. Luckily it is all a facade. Dawn
a article writer-if he is good at his craft, will always write with a certain twist to his position. Not taking sides, but I would take all with grain of salt.
Read both sides, but yes-Thuc did seam pretty good fellow. Seemed to ordain priests/bishops like it was going out of style, though.
Yes, I did notice the spin of good being perfect and bad beingway out as well. But, I agree on the whole, this was one heck of a man!! Family for that matter. Wonder why we never hear of his mother referred to as a saint like Rose Kennedy, may she rest in peace.
Some good articles to read about him
Abp. Thuc: A Brief Defense
Pius XII, Excommunication, and Traditional Catholic Bishops
The Validity of the Thuc Consecrations
Declaration of Archbishop Ngo-Dinh-Thuc
Bishop Carmona’s Defense of His Consecration
Although Abp. Thuc did some good things you could hardly call him a Saint. He made some very bad decisions (consecrating Bishops for the Palmarians) but he did them in good faith (he truly believed Our Lady was appearing there, he later rejected the apparition as false and the Palmarian Church as schismatic). One of the best decisions he ever made was when he raised Bp. Guérard des Lauriers and Bp. Carmona to the Episcopacy.
I would hardly call Archbishop Pierre Martin Ngô Dinh Thuc a Saint, but he did consecrate valid bishops validly, that's for sure. But to call him a Saint is exaggerated, he once believed in fraudulent apparitions, then again in sedevacantism, to reject the latter movement in his last year of life.

Thank you all, I do want to see things clearly and that story was written in a way that I could see glossing on some parts of his life. I can always count on you guys.
