Bishop Aphrem of the Malankara Syriac Orthodox Church who was visiting from India.


  1. The Byzantine Catholic Church needs to be clear about Vatican Council II and proclaim it.They must evangelize knowing that Vatican Council II supports the past exclusivist ecclesiology of the Church since the time Mass was offered in Greek.Vatican Council II supports an ecumenism of return, the Syllabus of Errors and traditional Mission.
    They must also correct the 'Amoris Laetitia Church' when they interpet Vatican Council II assuming there are known exceptions of the baptism of desire etc , to traditional Feeneyite EENS.
    Amoris Laetitia also suggests that we can judge cases on earth of people living in manifest mortal sin who will not be going to Hell and who could be given the Eucharist at Mass.So this is false in morals and salvation.
    In evangelisation, in any Rite, it needs to be clear that there are no known exceptions for us humans to the general teachings on faith and morals, salvation and moral theology.-Lionel Andrades

  2. The Byzantine American Catholic Church, needs to create a Catholic political party which will affirm the Catholic Social Reign of Christ the King over all political legislation.

    They would be faithful to the Gospel, as it was interpreted over the centuries, without rejecting Vatican Council II.

    The political party in the USA would be Catholic in its ethos, open to all, democratic, with no discrimination on the basis of religion, race, class or ideology.It would have Jesus as he he is taught and understood in the Catholic Church over the centuries, as the centre of all political legislation, since outside the Catholic Church there is no known salvation and no salvation.

    It would also correct the false doctrines of 'the Amoris Laetitia Catholic Church'.

    The Catholic political party independent of the USCCB could appeal to all Catholics(and teach them) to affirm the Social Reign of Christ the King over all political legislation.

    The political party would interpret Vatican Council II in harmony with the past exclusivist ecclesiology of the Church, as it was known in the Byzantine Catholic Church and which is rejected by the USCCB today.

    So in catechesis and evangelization the political party would be in harmony with an ecumenism of return according to the Syllabus of Errors and there would be no rupture between the Catechism of the Catholic Church and the past catechisms.There would be no schism with the past popes, as the American cardinals and bishops are in today.They do not have the Faith.

    The Byzantine Catholic Church will lose it unless they do not go on the offensive doctrinally. They must give a testimony of the traditional faith, as at the time of the ancient Greek Mass, without intepreting Vatican Council II with an irrationality to create a rupture with Tradition.

    Ad Gentes 7 says all need faith and baptism for salvation. Vatican Council II here is not referring to faith according to the Jehovah's Witnesses or some non Catholic community. It refers to Catholic faith.

    So in faith we know that all Protestants, Orthodox Chrisitians and other Christians in the USA today are on the way to Hell unless they enter the Catholic Church with Catholic Faith.
    Faith includes the Sacraments, the baptism of water in the Catholic Church and the faith and moral teachings of the Church.

    So a political party of lay men and women is needed in the USA and also other countries, which affirms Catholic traditional teachings independent of the pro Masonic cardinals and bishops.They would be faithful to Jesus and the Church without rejecting Vatican Council II.Since Vatican Council II and all Church documents would be interpreted without the irrational premise.

    They will affirm no salvation outside the Church and demand that Christ be King over all legislation.This would be supported by many Christians who would call for a separation of Satanic secularism and state.- Lionel Andrades
