Is Tradition Excommunicated? Where is Catholicism Today?
Is Tradition Excommunicated Where is Catholicism Today Author:Independent Collections Answers the questions surrounding the June 30, 1988 Episcopal Consecrations of Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, founder of the Society of Saint Pius X. If He was right, could it be that he did not incur an excommunication according to the very letter of canon law itself? If He is not excommunicated, is He the schismatic he is accused of being? If ... more »He is not schismatic, then maybe his notion of Catholic Tradition was not as arbitrary as itwas charged it was. Could it be the notion of Catholic Tradition as the simple transmission of the deposit of Faith is not so incomplete or contradictory after all?
These questions come to mind in light of the unity, success, and growth of groups faithful to the memory of Archbishop Lefevre, a phenomenon contrary to the dark preditions of his enemies. Is Tradition Excommunicated? addresses them from a theological perspective to see how much Lefevre's consecration of bishops to preserve and spread Catholic Tradition was in conformity with the mind of the Catholic Church herself.« less
