Mea Culpa


Mea Culpa! Mea Culpa, Mea Maxima Culpa.

Through my fault!

A wise former professor once said to me: I’m never wrong; I thought I was wrong once, but I was mistaken. In truth I made a mistake in quoting the US District Superior, Fr. Rostand in my article of June 16, 2012, entitled Hoisted by His Own Petard. Thank you for the correction, Fr. G.

The actual quote is: Well the Faith is definitely what matters the most. Our fight for 40 years has been to defend the fullness of the Catholic Faith.  However it is not true to say that the unity of the Church is only based on the Faith. If you take a catechism, open your book and you will see the question about the unity of the Church. Well the answer is that the Church is one because the Catholic believes the same doctrine, receives the same sacraments, and also are governed by the same head.  There are 3 principles of unity in the Church.  So, definitely today the fight for the Faith is what is the priority. Against the Rumors, Pt. 2; DICI, minutes 7:35 – 8:07 see: http://www.dici.org/en/documents/interview-of-fr-arnaud-rostand-usa-district-superior-by-the-angelus-press/

 Originally, I mistook his statement of: it is not true to say that the unity of the Church is based on the Faith, as, unity comes before Faith. My most humble apologies to Fr. Rostand for any misunderstanding on this.

About Catholic Rural Solutions

This group is for the practical application of Catholic Distributist teachings as promoted by Pope St. Pius X, Belloc, Chesterton, Maurin and others in the 20th century. This group is also a respite for traditional Catholics who adhere to the Tridentine Rite of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and who share a concern for small independent Catholic communities throughout the world. These communities while primarily small holding farmers, craftsmen and tradesman all espouse an integrated life based on Catholic Social Justice and the Sacred Magisterium of the Church. Through this we intend to inject the Distributist economic principles into the greater society. Please fell free to share your experiences in this vein. Flaming, proselytizing and persecution WILL NOT BE TOLERATED.
