Francis accused of propagating heresy
62 Clerics and Scholars: Francis has effectively upheld 7 heretical positions about marriage.
en.news 62 clerics and scholars published on Sunday a 25-page correction of
Pope Francis’ Amoris Laetitia. Its title is “A filial correction concerning the propagation of heresies”.
The letter states that Francis upholds seven heretical positions about marriage, the moral life and the reception of the sacraments. For the signees it is “beyond reasonable doubt” that Francis wishes Catholics to interpret controversial passages of Amoris Laetitia in a heretical way.
The letter denounces the influence of Martin Luther on Francis and notes “the explicit and unprecedented praise given by Pope Francis to the German heresiarch”. Twitter User “Rorate Caeli” has learned that no cardinals were asked to sign the letter.
The highest ranking signee of the declaration is Bishop Bernard Fellay, the superior general of SSPX. Many active priests and professors were advised not to sign because of the present climate of persecution against Catholics inside the Church.
Bishop Schneider: God needs the ‘simple faithful’ to protect the faith in this time of crisis.
‘Correctio filialis de haeresibus propagatis’
‘A filial correction concerning the propagation of heresies’).
1. one who propagates heresy.
One who originates or is the chief proponent of a heresy or heretical movement.
[Late Latin haeresiarcha, from Late Greek hairesiarkhēs : Greek hairesis, sect; see heresy + Greek -arkhēs, -arch.]
Whoever publicly asserts that one may receive communion in mortal sin is excommunicated
If anyone says that faith alone is sufficient preparation for receiving the sacrament of the most Holy Eucharist: let him be anathema. And that so great a Sacrament may not be unworthily received, and therefore unto death and condemnation, this holy Council ordains and declares that sacramental confession must necessarily be made beforehand by those whose conscience is burdened by mortal sin, however contrite they may consider themselves. If anyone moreover teaches the contrary or preaches or obstinately asserts, or even publicly by disputation shall presume to defend the contrary, by that fact itself he is excommunicated. (Denzinger-Hünermann 1661. Julius III, Council of Trent, Session XIV, October 11, 1551)
