Más lío aquí, hombruh…

Go to One Peter Five in order, if nothing else, to click back to this blog to re-review my ongoing hobby horse, namely, my Eastern Patristic florilegium about Roman supremacy.

I spent several hours tonight significantly revising and expanding the thing. If nothing else, pray over the following image, which I’m tempted to get tattooed on my shoulder blades.

review your catechism church

Any leads on where this page can be found? An old St. Joseph’s Missal? A section in the old Baltlimore Catechism?

  1. No, and BAC has Missals dating back to the 1920s.

    I always found the line “that those will be lost who are convinced that the Catholic religion is the true religion, and yet refuse to embrace it” as missing key information.

    Because taking that proposition as it is, I do not see how there is any need to preach the gospel at all. It would appear that our success in convincing someone of the truth of the Catholic religion is what leads one to damnation in some cases. I am thinking of cases where conversion is very inconvenient for a person but a “Catholic idiot” decided to explain how the Catholic Church is the true Church to someone.

    If this were true, Christ shouldn’t have spoken about the fact that one would be hated by their family and loved ones for his name. He should have rather instructed the followers to refrain from preaching the good news lest it cause inconvenience and lead them to damnation.

    So I believe that the key information missing in that proposition is that “often men, deceived by the Evil One, have become vain in their reasonings and have exchanged the truth of God for a lie, serving the creature rather than the Creator.(129) Or some there are who, living and dying in this world without God, are exposed to final despair. Wherefore to promote the glory of God and procure the salvation of all of these, and mindful of the command of the Lord, “Preach the Gospel to every creature”,(130) the Church fosters the missions with care and attention.” (Lumen Gentium, 16). The key word being “often”.

    I would say, practically speaking, it is highly unlikely, but not impossible, that someone who is outside of the Catholic Church will be saved. Since it is unlikely, no Catholic should use that proposition to define ones operating principles, especially with respect to missionary activity and fighting error.

    It looks like the typeface used by St. Joseph’s. Maybe their “Catholic Manual”? I’ll have to take a look.

  4. 1906 Manual of the mean exclusive Catholic Church

    Q. Is it lawful to have any communication in things of religion with those who are separated from the Church of Christ?

    A. By no means; all communion or fellowship in any religious duties, rites or ritual is repeatedly and strictly forbidden by the Church.

    Q. How is the Church of Christ known as the true Church?

    A. By the marks laid down in the holy scriptures, by which the true Church of Christ can easily be distinguished.

    2015 Happy inclusive Catholic Church.

    Your schismatic saint is our common doctor. Yay!!!!

  5. Dale, I agree: that trademark typeface leaped out at me. I have since gained confirmation that it is a 1954 St. Joseph’s Missal.

    Not so by the way, I responded to your email from February. Apologies for the delay–I check that account too rarely.

    SSPX ‘spokesman’ : Theology of Vatican Council II is in agreement with the strict interpretation of extra ecclesiam nulla salus
