Following is a sermon from Vigano. It is the best explanation of Church doctrine, which existed from the beginning and was promulgated bit by bit to counter errors occurring down through the ages. I knew this truth but was unable to boldly proclaim it, or not called to.
Anthony and I are converts. I don’t know when he received the faith. I received it at the age of eight. Of course, it was passed on to me in a way that was suitable for an eight-year-old, but complete and accurate, and I understood every word.
Unfortunately, many Catholics who were baptized shortly after birth take the faith for granted, which makes them lukewarm. Only when one has not always had the faith is one able to hold it as a treasure unstained by lack of resoluteness. Anthony and I are resolved. We understood the faith from the beginning, and every commentary he has given is exactly the commentary I would have given.
Vigano is the boldest churchman on the planet. I would guess that he, as a very highly placed official, saw the coming apostasy, started formulating his response, which took time, and now has loosed it. Check all the church posts he has held.
I and others accepted the label “traditional” for the simple reason that we had to, to distinguish ourselves from those who have fallen into apostasy. However, the label is only needed for that reason. In truth, we need no determiners.
