That doesn't show they petitioned repeatedly for the removal of the excommunications. Do you always read what you want to see instead of what is written?
What on earth else would they be repeatedly petitioning about? Again, here is what the Pope said: "I have carried out this act of paternal mercy because repeatedly these prelates have manifested their sharp suffering in the situation in which they found themselves."
And later there was determined to be no schism which shows the misunderstanding of JP2.
Pope Benedict XVI said nothing about a misunderstanding. How can an excommunication be lifted if there wasn't one?
you promote your own opinon and then claim it is theirs.
I've quoted their words in my responses and then you say that John Paul II was confused.
True. But you Neo-Catholics have a unique approach. You invent your version of Catholicism and then go around saying that you're just saying what the Church says and call your own theological opinions "authentic teaching of the Magisterium."
I'm the one that has the Pope in union with the Bishops on my side. This is what makes up the teaching office of the Church, namely the Magisterium. My experience with SSPXers is negativity, hyper-criticism, and what seems to be a persecution complex. But I was brought up as a Catholic who was taught that I am not to spend my time on earth judging the decisions of the Magisterium. As a member of the laity, I am taught that I must love my neighbor as myself, avoid the occasions of sin, be in the state of grace, be in horror of mortal sin, cultivate a prayer life, practice the spiritual and corporal works of mercy, spread the Gospel through word and deed, forgive those who injure me, pray for my enemies, pray the Rosary daily if possible, go to confession at least once a month, go to Eucharistic Adoration, pray for an increase of faith, grace and knowledge so that I may share Christ with those who lack Him, pray for the salvation of souls and above all, I must love God with my whole heart, my whole soul and my whole mind. This is what I am taught at my Novus Ordo parish.
So I have to give it to you, your deception is much more original than the Lutherans or Calvinists.
I'm not here to deceive anyone. You seem to get upset when I show you the quotes made by John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI.
At this point, since you have done nothing except rant about the SSPX, I feel obliged to remind you of the forum rules:http://www.websitetoolbox.com/tool/post/apologia/vpost?id=2860339
Other Catholics and non-Catholics are most welcome to participate if they will respect the sensibilities of traditional Catholics who respect the Petrine Ministry and the man who holds the office. In other words, read about what is meant by "traditional Catholics" -- and don't come here to rile people who fit that description. We get smeared everywhere else; it won't happen here
I'm responding to people's statements. If you are alarmed because you cannot come up with convincing responses then don't read this thread. You've called me a hypocrite, a deceiver and a nutjob. I don't mind the insults, but I find it rather silly for you to warn me about respecting your sensibilities, when all I have been doing is countering your opinion with writings of the Popes and Sacred Scripture.
You've had your fun, but now it's time to decide: follow the rules or find somewhere else to go. There are plenty of other topics on this forum you can discuss with other Catholics: the Rosary, the Divine Office, the Saints, etc.
Speaking about the Rosary, that's another bone I have to pick with SSPXers. In my experience many of the disciples of SSPX which I have come accross denigrate the Mysteries of Light which meditate on the Life of Christ. When I first heard such disdain (they referred to them mockingly as the "Glow-in the dark mysteries"), it immediately raised a red flag of Luciferianism to me.
