Dear Friend [x]I am very excited that you are interested into the Annunciation Seminary. Let me addressyour questions.
Question #1: How do you propose to ordain men if you have no faculties given that youhave not been ordained?
The Church will always have within its ability (meaning the faculties) to consecrate theBishop Of Rome. There have however been times throughout history which the Bishop of Rome has died without being consecrated. We name them as follows:(Elected - Death)Stephen II (752 – 752)John XIV (984 – 985)Celestine IV (1241 – 1241)Adrian V (1276 – 1276)What really matters is what God ordains for us by His Holy Will. We, the Church of Philadelphia according to Apocalypse, are mentioned as having “
the patience and the faithof the saints.
” (Apocalypse 13:10) and being “
a pillar in the temple of my God
.”(Apocalypse 3:12) We must remind Ourselves, my dear beloved friend [x], that patience is agreat merit before God. “
He that is faithful in that which is least, is faithful also in thatwhich is greater: and he that is unjust in that which is little, is unjust also in that which is greater.
” (Luke 16:10) We however, are going to be prudent about the matter, and We havebeen assigning various Catholics and resources both in and outside of the United States tosearch for a Bishop, in hopes that he would renounce his heresy (or heresies) andconsecrate Us, the Pope. Canon 219 is written down as follows: “
The Roman Pontiff legitimately elected obtains, from the moment he accepts the election, the full power of supreme jurisdiction by divine right.
” Pope Michael has jurisdiction which is needed tohave legitimate Sacraments, for he accepted the papal election on 16 July 1990.Traditionalists nor Novus Ordo do not have any jurisdiction, therefore all their sacraments,even if they had not changed the rites of the Sacraments, would still be illegitimate, andthose that receive them commit mortal sin. For Jurisdiction alone comes from the Pope,that is a valid pope. Antipopes (by Catholic definition means:
one claiming to be Pope
) donot have jurisdiction inside the Church for their unbelief puts them outside the Church asSt. Thomas of Aquinas states in his Summa Theologica (II-II Q. 10 A. 3),
Therefore, it isclear that the sin of unbelief is greater than any sin that occurs in the perversion of morals
. A Bishop without jurisdiction, is like a head without the body, useless and dead.But the Bishop of Rome contains the keys to Infallibility and Jurisdiction both are necessaryin the preservation of the Church, the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church. Theformer retains the faithful in the purity of Truth, which is the Christian Faith, while thelatter confirms the faithful with sanctifying grace through the Sacraments and ultimatelythe salvation of their souls.1
