“All sacraments from the modernists bishops or priests are doubtful now.”Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, October 1988 (Source)
Whatever one makes of these two preceding quotes, they clearly demonstrate that all traditionalists have a right to be concerned about the validity of the so-called “reformed rites” of the sacraments.
These reforms following Vatican II raise various difficult questions. Not only were the various rites changed, but even these reformed rites are not always followed with any serious diligence.
To this end, the WM Review is providing a special section on what pre-conciliar theologians and moralists had to say on the necessary forms, matter and ministers of various sacraments. We focus on topics that we do not think are adequately addressed elsewhere. At present, this includes the following:
- The necessity for widespread access to conditional sacraments
- The proximate matter of Baptism (the method of pouring)
- The minister of Confirmation (bishop or priest?)
Those who have doubts or lack moral certainty regarding these sacraments are encouraged to seek out conditional sacraments.
