“…..there is an odd gnostic-myth floating around Catholic circles today that a heretic in the hierarchy can only be recognized by either a group of Cardinals or an obsolete battery of canonical trials.”
“…..the Catholic Church has always taught you only need the true faith and blue-collar common-sense to identify a manifest heretic. This means you do not need a group of Cardinals behind you with ‘an imperfect council’ or canonists forming a ‘canonical trial’ to recognize an obvious enemy of the Catholic faith. (This is important because a manifest-heretic, by definition, ceases not only to be a member of the hierarchy, but even a member of the Catholic Church.)”
Fr. David Nix (quoted in the link below)
What doesn’t the so-called Resistance clearly and openly acknowledge that a manifest heretic can be judged as such by its clergy and faithful? Why do the Resistance clergy and faithful use their senses and intellect to come to the judgement that Vatican II and the Novus Ordo Rite of Mass are not Catholic; yet when it comes to judging someone as a manifest heretic their intellects become dull despite what their eyes see and ears hear?
Wake up so-called Resistance!
