There is No Recession from Catholic Dogma

Private Epistle #3


The apostate Vatican II Council (1962-1965), sought to recede from the meaning of dogmas and make exceptions to them, under the name of a deeper understanding.  It attempted to recede from the meaning of the dogmatic words originally defined.  They who attempt to do this are anathema according to the ecumenical Vatican I Council (1868-1870).


Before the apostasy of the Vatican II council, the Church, almost prophetically, through the mouth of Our Predecessor Pius IX, declared the following at the Vatican I Council:


Hinc sacrorum quoque dogmatum is sensus perpetuo est retinendus, quem semel declaravit sancta mater ecclesia, nec unquam ab eo sensu, altioris inteligentiae specie et nominae, recedendum.


Or in English:


Hence too, that meaning of the sacred dogmas is ever to be maintained which has once been declared by holy mother church, and there must never be a recession from this meaning under the name of a kind of deeper understanding.


Therefore, a man can never proceed to carve out exceptions to a dogma.  For with every exception that a heretic attempts to carve out of a dogma, he further and further causes a recession from the meaning of the dogma as it was originally declared.


Therefore, do not be deceived.  The dogmas that the Apostolic See teaches by her authoritative magisterium admit of no exceptions.  And those who attempt to carve out exceptions to the dogmatic formula, are not from the Spirit of God but from the spirit of Satan.  And they are not of the Catholic Faith, but are members of the modernist heresy.


Therefore, whenever the Church teaches a dogma, understand that no exceptions to it can be had, but it must be held in the full sense of the meaning, with no recession from that meaning for any exception whatever.  


Therefore, as an example, when the Church teaches that a man must hold the Catholic faith whole and inviolate for salvation as defined at the Council of Florence and in the Athanasian Creed, there are no exceptions.
