A New Series
On my journey to Tradional Catholicism I read the Syllabus Errorum of Bl Pius IX. I was struck by how totally incompatible this Magisterial Teaching document is with the "dogma" of V II! Of course, during and immediately after V II, we were assured that it was not a "dogmatic council" but a "pastoral" one which was not handing down dogmas. Now, 40+ years on, we are told that we are not true Catholics unless we accept the "dogmas of V II". In this series, to be posted sporadically as I have time, I will examine the Syllabus, with its Catholic teaching as compared to the Documents of V II, especially in its aspects of absolute opposition to the Teaching of the Church as expressed in the Syllabus.
For reference, the Syllabus can be viewed atn Papal Encyclicals Online, and the Documents of Vatican II can be viewed (and searched) at II Vatican Council.
