Well-known priest, Fr. Benedict Groeschel, who appeared on EWTN many times, died on October 3, 2014. He was not a true Catholic. Sadly, Groeschel was a complete heretic and apostate who enthusiastically embraced and promoted the Vatican II apostasy. Groeschel claimed to be a Franciscan, and dressed in traditional garb. Yet, he did not have the true Catholic faith and therefore his externals profited him nothing. He lost his soul for his promotion of heresies and his adherence to the false Vatican II religion to the end. In fact, his heresies (and other heresies promoted on EWTN) are so outrageous that they provide some of the most powerful proofs that the Vatican II sect is not the Catholic Church, but a Counter Church of the Devil. The Vatican II Counter Church has been constructed to lead souls astray and to Hell. Here are a few examples of Groeschel’s incredible heresies, which manifested his repudiation of Catholic teaching and his apostasy from the Catholic faith. The truth, however, is that Groeschel was only following the religion of Vatican II and what the Vatican II antipopes teach and display. We covered these heresies from Groeschel, among other things, in the following articles:
The heresies taught by Groeschel and promoted on EWTN, as documented in the aformentioned files, are extremely revealing examples of why the Vatican II sect is not the Catholic Church.
A FEW OF FR. BENEDICT GROESCHEL’S INCREDIBLE HERESIES
- Fr. Benedict Groeschel was a huge figure at EWTN. Yet, Groeschel turned away converts, declared that he never “bought” that non-Catholics can’t be saved (a defined dogma), preached in “200 Protestant churches and a hundred synagogues,” said that the sacraments are not necessary for salvation, and even denied that Our Lord even said “Unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood you shall not have life in you” (John 6:54)!
- Mother Angelica was also an outspoken defender of the worst kind of false ecumenism, including with Jews. In one show, Mother Angelica and Fr. Benedict Groeschel were discussing the recent death of “Cardinal” John O’Connor. Fr. Groeschel mentioned that the Jews held a Jewish service in St. Patrick’s Cathedral after the death of “Cardinal” John O’Connor. Groeschel, an incredible apostate, thought that the Jewish service in the Cathedral was a great thing. Mother Angelica also wasted no time in blurting out: “That’s awesome!”
- Fr. Groeschel said on EWTN that there are non-Catholic saints, including Martin Luther King. That blatantly denies the Catholic dogma, defined by the Council of Florence, that there is no salvation outside the Catholic Church, and that no one, even if he sheds blood for the name of Christ, can be saved unless he abides in the bosom and unity of the Catholic Church.
Dear Dimond Brothers,
I just finished watching Sunday Night With Father Groeshel on EWTN. His guest was a “priest” (forgot his name) who is the postulator for the “canonization” of Cardinal Cooke. A caller called in and asked if the Catholic Church would ever consider canonizing a non-Catholic such as Martin Luther King. The “priest” replied that the person must be a Catholic for canonization but it doesn’t mean that there are not saints in other faiths! Father Groeshel agreed with him and what Father Groeshel said next revealed his blatant apostasy. He said that a good candidate for canonization is William Booth, the founder of the Salvation Army! A Protestant heretic!
MHFM: That’s quite a heresy. It’s also what John Paul II taught in Ut Unum Sint. If that doesn’t show someone that EWTN and similar groups are not Catholic, we don’t know what will. Groeschel is an outrageous apostate; he’s almost at the level of history’s notorious Protestant “reformers.” The fact that EWTN continues to promote Fr. Groeschel is abominable, but it’s not surprising. They put him on because they agree with him. Considering his beliefs, for them to allow him to teach “the faith” is a major mortal sin. It demonstrates that they are a network of apostasy, despite some of the true and interesting things they do.
