Declaration of Fidelity

You may remember when some 879,451 Catholics from all around the world signed the Filial Appeal to His Holiness Pope Francis on the Future of the Family, pleading with him to fulfill his role as Supreme Pontiff and defend the sacred Deposit of Faith in the area of marriage and family?

This appeal included in its number around 200 prelates, many priests and a long list of renowned Catholic dignitaries from all across the globe. Sadly Pope Francis simply ignored this vast appeal from the faithful and went on to ignore similar requests from around 500 British priests and 13 cardinals.

If you have not already signed this important declaration of fidelity to the Church’s “unchangeable teaching on marriage” and 2.000 years of Sacred Tradition, you can now do so here.

    What about fidelity to Papal teaching in the person of Pope Francis ?

  2. Magdalene says:

    For what purpose? To ease our conscience that we ‘did something’ in protest of what is coming out of modernist Rome? A million signitures will not stop what the present powers that be are doing. What is needed is prayer coupled with fasting as that is the means given to us by Christ to drive out the demons. Never miss a day of praying your rosary either so as to obey the Queen of Heaven, Our Lady of Fatima.

    “…Papal teaching in the person of Pope Francis…”

    Papal teaching is not “in the person” of a particular pontiff, it is “in” the magisterium of the Church. An apostolic exhortation is at the bottom of the pile when it comes to papal teaching authority and has to be read in the light of the teaching of every other pontiff and Our Lord Himself.

  5. John says:

    The Raven @07.40.
    The Magisterium of the Church is not just an abstract impersonal body of doctrine floating around in the ether but comes to us through official human agency, most notably the Pope who is chief pastor commissioned by Christ himself. Tu es Petrus. Hardly a matter for dissentient bloggers who challenge the Pope with their own interpretation of what the Magisterium should be. The Magisterium is by definition the teaching authority of the Church which cannot be assumed or usurped by disaffected lay Catholics who have no such authority.
    It is not a matter of our making strenuous efforts to show that if Pope A, whom we like, were alive to-day he would surely, in our view, have disagreed with the contemporary teaching of Pope B whom we dislike ; and because we like Pope A, his teaching, if he were alive, is bound to have been at variance with and more authentic that that of Pope B.
    Catholics who in history challenged the Pope of their day were called Protestants. Modern Catholics, who to-day without teaching authority challenge and protest against the teaching of Pope Francis as Supreme Pastor are no different.

    The magisterium of the Church is the whole teaching of the Church, as set down in her teaching documents, John.

    The highest expressions of the magisterium are the the words of Our Lord and the apostles, followed by the anathemas pronounced by the successors of the apostles at Ecumenical councils. Pastor Æternus defined the teaching authority of the reigning pontiff and its limits – the formulation that you are moving towards here was explicitly rejected by an Ecumenical Council.

    The Magisterium is by definition the teaching authority of the Church which cannot be assumed or usurped by disaffected lay Catholics who have no such authority.

    Then why do you presume to do just that?

    It is not a matter of our making strenuous efforts to show that if Pope A, whom we like, were alive to-day he would surely, in our view, have disagreed with the contemporary teaching of Pope B whom we dislike

    We have no need to undertake such “strenuous efforts”, we have the clear, unequivocal and explicit teaching of the Church on matters of the discipline for receipt of the sacraments.

    Catholics who in history challenged the Pope of their day were called Protestants.

    Were you not at least a little ashamed to write that, John? Or is your knowledge of history really so deficient?

    Don’t be ridiculous, I’m not the one claiming that the apostolic exhortation is suggesting “exciting” novelties contrary to Tradition.
