Dear Mrs. Maria Guarini,
we can not but answer the merits on its subjective interpretation about why Monsignor Antonio Livi has left our association. We would then point out in response to what she wrote in her blog very well known and followed [see WHO], that the note of heresy to the criticisms made by the Bishop Marcel Lefebvre to the doctrines of Vatican II can be seen easily by the statements made by Blessed Pope Paul VI, by the Holy Father John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI, all reported recently in an article by Ariel S. Levi Gualdo on our online magazine The island of Patmos [see WHO].
For which reason this, the provisions of S.It is. Mons. Marcello Semeraro, Bishop of the Diocese of Albano Laziale Suburbicarian, relatively attendance at Catholic faithful to the Society of St. Pius X, are fully legitimate and understandable, then his "IncomingIt is notimproper, unfounded and unsustainable», as she asserts, anything, it is only right.
As for the expression 'readmission to the Church» used by the Bishop of Albano Laziale and about which she questionnaire improperly on the ecclesial, canonical and pastoral, we do this that it is justified by the fact which is addressed in a consistent and relevant to Catholics who have left the Church communion with the Roman Pontiff.
Therefore, she makes the comparison with non-Catholics, of which speaks Unitatis redintegratio, can not stand at all standing. It is stated there, to n. 4 [see WHO], that non-Catholics should be "fully incorporated in the Catholic Church». This is different. Indeed, there is a difference of expressions motivated by the fact that, while Lefebvre were Catholic, who dropped out of ecclesial communion, non-Catholics of whom speak this document on ecumenism, they are born non-Catholics, and must therefore not return but enter in the Roman Church.
The fact that prelates have recently had contact with Lefebvre is cause for sincere satisfaction for every good Catholic and shows the thoughtful maternity of the Catholic Church toward these scattered children that for now they continue to persevere in error; but these contacts that should never be interpreted as meaning that Rome has resigned to endorse the heresies of the Fraternity of St. Pius X.
With all the most sincere good we feel obliged to urge finally to abandon the road that has taken. His continuous, punctilious and wrong questioning the legitimacy of the doctrines of the Second Vatican Council and the Magisterium of the Church of the last fifty years; his offer space and sounding board to hundreds of comments “Catholic” imbued with hatred in forms that often insulting despise the Authority of the Church and the Roman Pontiff, goes first serious damage to the health of his soul and, through it, to many other souls who can assimilate and pursue such right way similar serious errors and deviations from the Roman Catholic Apostolic Faith.
In this time of great reflection and purification of Lent please ponder the serious responsibilities that she followed to take persevering in error and inducing error also other souls. It is a strong appeal to this which is charging, with serious risks to the health of his soul that one day will be called before the judgment of God.
At the beginning of this Lent, imposing ashes on the heads of the faithful, we priests have pronounced upon them the sentence: «Repent and believe in the Gospel». Therefore cease to believe only the reasons for herself, begin to truly believe the Gospel and to serve as soon as the Holy Church of God in truth and justice, does not continue as it is doing to fight against the Church, his doctrine and his teaching in the name of his subjective idea of Church. His subjective idea of the Church is not the Church of Christ, him express knowledge and belief, but above him express in a tone of supplication as pastors responsible for the sacrament of grace to the care of God's people, for the good and for the salvation of his soul and the many souls through it can fall into the abyss of the error, obstinately persevering in which you could run the serious risk of surrender freely to hell fire.
Where Peter, Church was there.
