The above article clearly shows how the Dimonds have misrepreseted Catholic teachings to suit their schismatic views. If a person is a heretic or a schismatic, he is excommunicated by the law (ipso facto). Such persons would include anyone who adheres to antipope Benedict XVI (Ratzinger), as they are in schism from the true Church, of which Benedict XVI is NOT the head. This decree also prohibits any union between Catholics and non-Catholics, a teaching which Benedict XV also denied. Please connect the dots below, and then reject the heretic Dimonds as any proper Catholic would.
On page 171 of the brothers book they quote a homily of Antipope John Paul II in which he states that "the blood of Christ reaches all and saves all." They correctly say that this is in contrast with the dogmatic teachings of the Church. Then they quote the Council of Trent:
Pope Paul III, Council of Trent, Session 6, Ch. 3, 1547, ex cathedra: "But though He died for all, yet not all receive the benefit of His death, but only those whom the merit of His passion is imparted."
They follow up by saying, " Only those who are freed from original sin by Baptism, and united to Him through the sacraments and the true faith, receive the benefit of Christ's death." If the Dimonds want to remain consistent, they would have to condemn Benedict XV for this statement:
Antipope Benedict XV (della Chiesa), Ad Beatissimi Apostolorum, #1, 1914: "For the whole of mankind was freed from the slavery of sin by the shedding of the blood of Jesus Christ as their ransom, and there is no one who is excluded from the benefit of this Redemption ..."
Antipope Benedict XV, Ad Beatissimi Apostolorum, #6, 1914: "Our Lord Jesus Christ came down from Heaven for the very purpose of restoring amongst men the Kingdom of Peace, which the envy of the devil had destroyed, and it was His will that it should rest on no other foundation than that of brotherly love. These are His own oft-repeated words: "A new commandment I give unto you: That you love one another (John xiv. 34); "This is my commandment that you love one another" (John xv. 12); "These things I command you, that you love one another" (John xv. 17); as though His one office and purpose was to bring men to mutual love. He used every kind of argument to bring about that effect. He bids us all look up to Heaven: "For one is your Father who is in Heaven" (Matt. xxiii 9); He teaches all men, without distinction of nationality or of language, OR OF IDEAS, to pray in the words: "Our Father, who are in Heaven" (Matt. vi. 9); nay, more, He tells us that our Heavenly Father in distributing the blessings of nature makes no distinction of our deserts: "Who maketh His sun to rise upon the good and bad, and raineth upon the just and the unjust" (Matt. v. 45). He bids us be brothers one to another, and calls us His brethren: "All you are brethren" (Matt. xxiii. 8); "that He might be the first-born amongst many brethren" (Rom. vii. 29). In order the more to stimulate us to brotherly love, even towards those whom our natural pride despises, it is His will that we should recognize the dignity of His own very self in the meanest of men: "As long as you did it to one of these My least brethren, you did it to Me" (Matt. xxv. 40}. At the close of His life did He not most earnestly beg of His Father, that as many as should believe in Him should all be one in the bond of charity? "As thou, Father, in Me, and I in Thee" (John xvii. 21). And finally, as He was hanging from the cross, He poured out His blood over us all, whence being as it were compacted and fitly joined together in one body, we should love one another, with a love like that which one member bears to another in the same body."
In the previous paragraph Antipope Benedict XV was speaking of all men, saying that "we should love one another, with a love like that which one member bears to another in the same body," as though all men are now in the body of Christ, the Catholic Church. And this can be the only thing he means, since right before, he says that Jesus poured out His blood upon all men, but this is not so, for where there is the blood of Christ there is also the Spirit of sanctification and the water of baptism.
Pope St. Leo the Great, Council of Chalcedon: "And the three are one. In other words, the Spirit of sanctification and the blood of redemption and the water of baptism. These three are one and remain indivisible. None of them is separable from its link with the others."
Further evidence that indicates Benedict XV was not only a heretic, but a Freemason as well, can be found in the very same 'encyclical'.
Antipope Benedict XV, Ad Beatissimi Apostolorum, #6: "Our Lord Jesus Christ came down from Heaven for the very purpose of restoring amongst men the Kingdom of Peace, which the envy of the devil had destroyed, and it was His will that it should rest on no other foundation than that of brotherly love... He teaches all men, without distinction of nationality or of language, or of ideas, to pray in the words: 'Our Father, who are in Heaven,'"
Antipope Benedict XV, Pacem Dei Munus Pulcherrimum, #17, 1920: "Things being thus restored, the order required by justice and charity re-established and the nations reconciled, it is much to be desired, Venerable Brethren, that all States, putting aside mutual suspicion, should unite in one league, or rather a sort of family of peoples, calculated both to maintain their own independence and safeguard the order of human society."
This is New World Order and it is what Freemasons desire, and what the current line of antipopes have been pushing for ever since Benedict XV.
