Not all ignorance is bliss…
Culpable Ignorance & the Great Apostasy:
A Sobering Reality Check
During last year’s Fatima Conference sponsored by the Congregation of Mary Immaculate Queen (CMRI) in Spokane, Washington, Mr. Jeffrey Knight, pictured above, gave a most informative lecture on the subject of every Catholic’s duty to know his Faith, even, and especially, in our difficult times. Too often, people try to take the easy way out and find excuses to not investigate what the Catholic Faith requires us to hold — and how it requires us to act — with respect to the Modernists in the Vatican claiming to be the legitimate Roman Catholic authorities. Mr. Knight demonstrates from Catholic theology at what point ignorance of Church teaching is culpable and becomes a mortal sin.
Whether we like it or not, we all have an obligation to know what our Faith teaches regarding the authority and infallibility of the Magisterium and the papacy, regarding Church authority, and regarding our duty to submit to those whom we recognize to be our legitimate pastors in the Church. Some people believe that as long as they are in ignorance on these matters and mean well, then their duty ceases. Others, again, have persuaded themselves that some Catholic teaching doesn’t “apply” today because of “the crisis” or “diabolical disorientation”. They are mistaken.
In this 56-minute talk, Mr. Knight takes to task the adherents of the “recognize-and-resist” (R&R) position, specifically the Society of St. Pius X, and contrasts their popular but nevertheless mistaken ideas with the true Catholic teaching anyone can easily research for himself.
