Archpatral Statement on the Doctrine of Matrimony

By Jean DuBois

FIRENZE-NUOVA ROMA 26 October 2020 (ORCNS) --

Last week His Holy Eminence the Archfather made a statement regarding teaching the authentic doctrine of the faith. The statement centred on the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony and confusing statements emanating from the Vatican and His Holiness the Pope. 

The statement, given in Italian, made the following key points: 

1. Everything must be grounded in the doctrine of the faith.

2. Not even the Bishops can change the truths of the faith. 

3. The clergy, especially the bishops, the successors of the Apostles, must teach only the doctrine of the faith.

4. Today the civil governments do not listen to the church. They have changed their definition of marriage. 

5. Even though the state has changed its definition of marriage, the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony and the essence of marriage remain the same. They have not changed and cannot change. 

6. The bishops, priests, and other clergy must teach the doctrine of the faith pertaining to matrimony and must not give approval, particularly in public, but also in private, to any policy of the civil state that is contrary to the doctrine of the faith.
