Catholic Doctrine Class

This year, instead of continuing Scripture study during the 6:30-7:30 p.m. Tuesday classes, we will do a study on the history, erors and harmful changes enacted by Vatican Council II, using as our source text the excellent book, Tumultuous Times (2004) by Frs. Dominic and Francisco Radecki, CMRI. We will focus on Part II of the book, which consists of about 300 pages. Having the book is not required, but will be very helpful. (Those attending the class can obtain the book at discount from Fr. Casimir, the instructor, for $20.)

These classes will be structured in such a way that whether you come to a few or to all of them, you will always be able to engage with and learn the material. Additional recommended resources are listed at the bottom of this page.

The chart below provides the course plan, along with outlines and audio files for each class as they become available. (Or you may download a PDF version of the course plan here.)

Highly recommended! Click on this link for a succinct but powerful explanation of why ‘Pope’ Francis, who has uttered one heretical teaching after another, cannot possibly be the Vicar of Christ on earth and the visible head of His Church:
Sedevacantism: A Quick Primer

Author unknown, but well said:
The Vatican ll Council has had disastrous effects on the Catholic Church. The weakening of the sense of the faith on the part of most Catholics is perhaps the most disastrous of them all. The faithful’s capacity to react against heresy has gradually become more and more feeble. There are some who remain attached to traditional forms of worship, but fail to understand that the most fundamental problem of Vatican II has been the massive defection from the true faith and that the hierarchy which professes Vatican II is not Catholic. Therefore those who wish to remain Catholic must reject the heresies and the heretics of Vatican II.

The following are well-researched sources on the evils of Vatican II, but the authors take the position of “Recognize the Pope, but resist him,” which is a gravely erroneous theological position for a Catholic to take. Unfortunately, the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX) has been in the forefront of this way of thinking since the 1970’s.
