To the editor:
To be Catholic means our beliefs must be the same as that of the apostles, who were taught by our Lord.
“But you do wrong and defraud: and that to your brethren. Know you not that the unjust shall not possess the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolators, nor adulterers, not the effeminate, nor Sodomites, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor railers, nor extortioners, shall possess the kingdom of God. And such some of you were: but you are justified in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, and in the spirit of our God.” (1 Corinthians, 6: 8-11)
“If an angel from heaven preach a gospel to you besides that which we have preached to you, let him be anathema.” (Galatians 1: 8)
By his words and actions (worshipping with unbelievers) Frances has show that he believes other than what the apostles taught and therefore cannot be the Vicar of Christ. Study and read a pre-Vatican II catechism or missal and see that the new Vatican II church is not the Catholic Church that Christ founded.
During the heresy, 90 percent of the Catholic world was taken in by the heresy. Exiled Bishop St. Athanaius wrote his flock, let them have their churches, stay home, keep the faith.
