Farewell Antonio Livi


Between Antonio Livi and the other two fathers John Cavalcoli and Ariel S. Levi Gualdo there has been no disagreement, only serene and fraternal differences of theological and pastoral. As we have outlined, about the problem is not slight of Lefebvre on which we have decided not to postpone, two different opinions, they could easily coexist together. In the legitimate freedom of the children of God Antonio Livi chose instead, to our sorrow, leaving this online magazine; we tried to dissuade him, but finally accepting her decision. The reasons are contained in written below. Our illustrious confrere confirm our highest consideration and our human and spiritual closeness with the best wishes of good and sincere grace of the Lord.

[…] a theologian can be found in the speeches and actions of ecclesiastical Mgr. Marcel Lefebvre a doctrine contrary to the dogma of the infallibility of the Magisterium, and when the formula of the dogmas that when it speaks with a solemn and universal magisterium, as it was for the Vaticnao II, that Msgr. Marcel Lefebvre (which had also participated in the work of the council and had signed the final documents) had at some points considered in contradiction with Tradition, that is, with the teaching of the magisterium previous.

Livi). On the one hand they are right the first to invoke the faithful to trust in the hierarchy, because they are required to obey the Ministers represented Jesus himself; on the other hand, however, you need a theological discourse to pave the doubts of the ignorant faithful. For example with regard to ecumenism among Christians and inter-religious: I'm not lefevriano but the thought of lefevre on this seems more consistent with the Magisterium of the Church.
