We are a group of Catholics in Ireland concerned about the rapid decline and rejection of the Catholic Faith amongst the Irish people ever since the Second Vatican Council of the 1960s. Over the span of just over 50 years, vocations have all but disappeared, Mass attendance has plummeted and knowledge about the most basic matters of the Catholic Faith has become a rarity. Most significantly, the church that we see today no longer teaches what she has always taught and continually contradicts her past teachings.
It is clear that this modern Church has ceased to be the Catholic Church, which cannot contradict herself, err or change her teachings. Thus we believe that it is the duty of every Catholic to renounce all of these errors and adhere to the Faith that has always been taught throughout the centuries. Moreover, we believe that the popes since Vatican II became public heretics by manifestly teaching a faith different from that of the Catholic Faith and, therefore, we do not recognise these imposters as heads of the Catholic Church.This conclusion is in agreement with what the Church has always taught, namely, that once someone becomes a heretic publicly, they become what is called a manifest heretic. By this very fact, they automatically excommunicate themselves from the Catholic Church and if they hold a position of authority in the Church, they lose this position.
Canon 188.4, 1917 Code of Canon Law:
“There are certain causes which effect the tacit (silent) resignation of an office, which resignation is accepted in advance by operation of the law, and hence is effective without any declaration. These causes are… (4) publicly defects from the Catholic faith.”
The Chair of Peter is perpetual, but vacant for now.
St. Patrick, pray for us.
