L’Osservatore Romano, Feb. 27, 2008, p. 12. Headline: “New Primate of the Greek Orthodox Church elected”
This shows us again that the Vatican II sect under Benedict XVI not only thinks that the “Orthodox” schismatics are in the Church, but that the “Orthodox” leaders are authorities in the Church. This is heretical.
Pope Leo XIII, Satis Cognitum (#15), June 29, 1896 – Bishops Separated from Peter and his Successors Lose All Jurisdiction: “From this it must be clearly understood that Bishops are deprived of the right and power of ruling, if they deliberately secede from Peter and his successors; because, by this secession, they are separated from the foundation on which the whole edifice must rest. They are therefore outside the edifice itself; and for this very reason they are separated from the fold, whose leader is the Chief Pastor; they are exiled from that Kingdom, the keys of which were given by Christ to Peter alone… No one, therefore, unless in communion with Peter can share in his authority, since it is absurd to imagine that he who is outside can command in the Church.”
