“All sacraments from the modernist bishops or priests are doubtful now.”Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, October 1988 (Source)
The 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:
- Is the Church Infallible in her Discipline? by l’Abbé Hervé Belmont
- Are the New Sacraments Valid? by l’Abbé Hervé Belmont
- What are the implications of conditionally repeated sacraments? by Mgr Robert Hugh Benson
- Doubtful Baptisms – Reflections on the necessity for widespread access to conditional sacraments
- The proximate matter of Baptism (the method of pouring)
Those who have reasonable doubts or lack moral certainty regarding their sacraments are encouraged to seek out conditional sacraments.
