Our Church has been taken over. The prudence of a combatant requires that he must never underestimate his adversary. Paul tells us that our battle is not against flesh and blood, but against the princes of darkness. The Demon himself, the Prince of this world, as Jesus was to point out often with great precision.
We cannot sanctify ourselves outside the present concrete situation of the Holy Catholic Church, the Ark of Salvation which, alone, can lead us safe and sound onto the shores of eternal life. Our Church, for some years now, is as if possessed by an alien spirit, not the Spirit of God: All of it truly resembles diabolical possession. We Are in a Full Crisis of Faith. Theologian and former consulter to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith calls on the Pope to make a declaration of faith, warning that unless the Pope safeguards doctrine, he cannot impose discipline.

In the following interview with the Register, Msgr. Bux is completely correct! For the first one thousand years of Christian history there was only one Church, and within this One, Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church there were five regional centers or Patriarchates: With the Nicene Creed complete, the third Ecumenical Council that met in Ephesus in the year forbade and anathematized any additions to the Nicene Creed.
This was not a minor change. It was huge in that it affected Trinitarian theology! It was a seismic shift in the Faith, with repercussions that are still being felt today. Anyone who is not aware of the significance of this change in doctrine should carefully read: The change in the Nicene Creed led to the Great Schism or division in the year Vincent of Lerins, caused a great division or schism in the Church, separating itself from the Patriarchates of Constantinople, Alexandria, Antioch and Jerusalem all of which were determined to preserve the Catholic Faith unchanged.
The Roman Patriarchate, having separated from the other four Patriarchates eventually became known as the Roman Catholic Church. Search the ancient documents if you like.
The undivided Church was never called the Roman Catholic Church. Rome—the center of unity? But is this teaching objectively true, or is it post-truth? Shall we look at the objective facts of history? For a thousand years there was but One Church, comprised of five ancient Patriarchates, reciting the same Creed, believing in the same Deposit of Faith, and governed in a conciliar manner. Rather than the centre of unity, Rome was the cause of division.
In the 14th and early 15th centuries the now separate Roman Catholic Church experienced what historians call the Great Western Schism, with rival popes in Rome and Avignon hurling anathemas at one another, and dividing Western Europe into countries that recognized one or the other papal claimants. At one time there were even three rival popes.
No one could know for sure who the real legitimate pope was. Rather than the center of unity, Rome was the cause of further division. Rome continued to change the Faith and Order of the Western Church until, about a century after the healing of the Great Western Schism, an explosion called the Protestant Reformation began in over the innovation of indulgences. The Reformation was really a Revolution, as the Roman Catholic Church was splintered into an ever growing number of Protestant sects until today there are by some estimates more than 30, competing Protestant denominations, plus uncountable numbers of independent, nondenominational and interdenominational local churches—all claiming to descend from the Protestant Reformation.

Rather than a center of unity, Rome was the cause of division. The Counter Reformation continued to change the Roman Church even more, with such new dogmas being declared as the Immaculate Conception in and Papal infallibility in How could new dogmas be legitimately added to the Deposit of Faith once delivered to the saints Jude 3 more than years after the birth of the Church?
What most traditional Roman Catholics do not know is that the notion of an Immaculate Conception which was only beginning to be raised in some circles in the post-Great Schism Roman Church was strongly opposed by such thinkers as Bernard of Clairvaux and Thomas Aquinas as dangerous innovations.
Sadly, today there are calls being made by many traditional Roman Catholics to add two more Marian dogmas: What most traditional Roman Catholics do not know about is the political maneuvering and tremendous pressure used by Pope Pius IX to get this new dogma declared.
Ecumenical Councils are to meet free of outside pressure and their decisions must be unanimous or nearly so. Vatican I was anything but a free Council, and when Pius IX saw that he could not get a near unanimous vote he changed the rules and required only a majority.
The night before the vote many bishops left Rome knowing that under the new rules a tragic new innovation would be pushed through. When the vote was taken many bishops were already gone, and lightening struck St.
It should as many say the same thing about Vatican II. Once again, rather than a center of unity, Rome was a cause of division.

Once again, rather than a center of unity, Rome has been the cause of division. Instead, Christians are commanded to earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered to the saints Jude 3.
While Protestantism is divided into countless sects, Rome—as we have seen—is actually the source of division rather than the center of unity.
