Anglican “Archbishop” of Canterbury Rowan Williams to John Paul II, 10/4/03: “In 1966 Pope Paul VI gave Archbishop Michael Ramsey his own Episcopal ring, which has been treasured by his successors and which I wear today. I am glad to thank you for the personal gift of a pectoral cross, sent to me on the occasion of my enthronement earlier this year. As I took on my new ministry I appreciated deeply that sign of a shared task…” (L’Osservatore Romano, 10/8/03, p. 9)
Comment: For those who don’t know, the Anglican non-Catholic sect does not even have valid priests or valid bishops! Pope Leo XIII infallibly declared that Anglican ordinations are invalid, for reasons that I will not go into here. Anglican “priests” and “bishops” are therefore laymen, besides being non-Catholic heretics and schismatics. Yet, after the election of the new Anglican “Archbishop” of Canterbury Rowan Williams, Antipope John Paul II dispatched the apostate Walter Kasper to give this non-Catholic layman a pectoral cross and a telegram of approval! This is so heretical that there are almost no words to describe it. The pectoral cross is a traditional Catholic symbol of Episcopal authority. By bestowing the pectoral cross upon the apostate Rowan Williams – who is also in favor of women priests and homosexuals being ordained – Antipope John Paul II is not only flatly denying by his deed Pope Leo XIII’s infallible definition that Anglican orders are invalid, but he is also making a complete mockery of the Catholic dogmas on the Papacy and the Church of Christ.
Pope Leo XIII, “Apostolicae Curae,” Sept. 13, 1896, ex cathedra: “… by Our authority, of Our own inspiration and certain knowledge We pronounce and declare that ordinations enacted according to the Anglican rite have hitherto been and are invalid and entirely void…” (Denz. 1966)
What makes this action of Antipope John Paul II even more incredible is the fact that Williams himself has been banned from conducting “Communion” services in 350 Anglican parishes for his view in favor of women priests. (CWNews, Sept. 8, 2003)! But that doesn’t stop Antipope John Paul II – he just pushes ahead with the apostasy. Antipope John Paul II even indicated that the non-Catholic layman Williams is the legitimate Bishop of the “See of Canterbury.”
Antipope John Paul II, “To the Most Reverend and Right Honorable Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury,” Oct. 4, 2003: “These encounters have sought to renew the links between the See of Canterbury and the Apostolic See… It is fidelity to Christ which compels us to continue to search for full visible unity and to find appropriate ways of engaging, whenever possible, in common witness and mission… I pray for a renewed outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon you… May God keep you safe, watch over you and always guide you in the exercise of your lofty responsibilities.” (L’Osservatore Romano, Oct. 8, 2003, p. 9.)
If Antipope John Paul II bestowed the Pectoral Cross upon the Eastern Schismatic “Orthodox” (who have valid orders but are not Catholic) it would be a radical denial of the Papacy. But to bestow it upon a Western Schismatic Anglican layman who is in favor of women priests and homosexuals being ordained is beyond words. It is one of the most heretical things he has done. He is mocking Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church and all the English martyrs who suffered horrible tortures for refusing to abandon Catholicism and become Anglicans.
