Here’s The Answer to Kasper

Taken directly from the documents of the First Vatican Council (from

“For the holy Spirit was promised to the successors of Peter
not so that they might, by his revelation, make known some new doctrine,
but that, by his assistance, they might religiously guard and faithfully expound the revelation or deposit of faith transmitted by the apostles.
Indeed, their apostolic teaching was
embraced by all the venerable fathers and
reverenced and followed by all the holy orthodox doctors,
for they knew very well that this see of St. Peter always remains unblemished by any error, in accordance with the divine promise of our Lord and Saviour to the prince of his disciples: I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail; and when you have turned again, strengthen your brethren [60] .
This gift of truth and never-failing faith was therefore divinely conferred on Peter and his successors in this see so that they might discharge their exalted office for the salvation of all, and so that the whole flock of Christ might be kept away by them from the poisonous food of error and be nourished with the sustenance of heavenly doctrine. Thus the tendency to schism is removed and the whole church is preserved in unity, and, resting on its foundation, can stand firm against the gates of hell.

Your move, Walter.

  1. Here’s what Pope Pius IX said about you guys, Walter:
    ” For which cause the same Our Predecessors, have, with Apostolic fortitude, constantly resisted the nefarious enterprises of wicked men, who, like raging waves of the sea foaming out their own confusion, and promising liberty whereas they are the slaves of corruption, have striven by their deceptive opinions and most pernicious writings to raze the foundations of the Catholic religion and of civil society, to remove from among men all virtue and justice, to deprave persons, and especially inexperienced youth, to lead it into the snares of error, and at length to tear it from the bosom of the Catholic Church. (Quanta Cura – Encyclical of Pope Pius IX promulgated on December 8, 1864.)

  2. Good Quotation. But my concern, and the main concern of many is the latter part: “This gift of truth and never-failing faith was therefore divinely conferred on Peter and his successors “. Is this meaning that the FIRST Vatican Council is outdated? Because Peter HAS FAILED. And IS FAILING, with no end in sight, from Pope John XXIII to Francis I.

    • The gift indeed was given but that doesn’t mean that it is being used as intended. We all have been given gifts but sometimes pride and the influence of the world, the flesh and the devil prevents the proper use of those gifts. The same applies, I think, to the current Occupant of the Chair of St. Peter. But, I am only a humble voice and have no real answers to why God allows such things.

  3. Heretics deserve the rack ! Candidates would be, Francis, Marx, Kasper, Dolan and Wuerl. Any others named can be cheerfully added. Now to find a Rack in good shape !
