That fullness of unity already exists in the Roman Catholic Church, outside of which there is no salvation.
The >Sacred Council< (New anti-Catholic Church) exhorts all the Catholic faithful to recognize the signs of the times
Things are different now. Forget the Catholic teachings you learned if they go against our agenda of a new, one world modernistic religion.
and to take an active and intelligent part in the work of ecumenism (Watering down Catholicism until it is barely recognizable).
The term "ecumenical movement" (can be likened to a bowel movement) indicates the initiatives and activities planned and undertaken, according to the various needs of the Church and as opportunities offer, to promote Christian unity
by encouraging all to join the Roman Catholic Church, outside of which there is no salvation: Extra Ecclesiam Nulla Salus.
These are: first, every effort to avoid expressions,
Such as "there is no salvation outside the Church"
Heretics go to hell!
Sharing the uncompromised Truth that led to so many authentic conversions throughout the Church’s history and abruptly with this new fangled thing pushed upon unsuspecting devoted Catholics in a sly, seductive, Satanic sort of way.

So the heretics can advise the Church on how to conduct her business.
At these meetings, which are organized in a religious spirit,

It is very important for Catholics to have the heretical faith explained to them.
in greater depth and brings out clearly its distinctive features.
We clearly believe that they do not accept the papacy or honor our Lady or believe they need to go to confession or believe in mortal sin or believe that they can go to Hell after they have accepted Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior. Yes it is very important for Catholics to understand this and not to judge these beliefs.
In such dialogue, everyone gains a truer knowledge and more just appreciation of the teaching and religious life of Heretics >both Communions<.
The true Church and Scripture already know this and warned us to stay clear of them.
In addition, the way is prepared for cooperation between them in the duties for the common good of humanity (through the new world order) which are demanded by every Christian conscience; and, wherever this is allowed, there is prayer in common (and the worship with heretics condemned by previous popes and by Scripture.) Finally, all are led to examine their own type of heresy >faithfulness to Christ's will< for the anti-Church and accordingly to undertake with vigor the task of renewal and reform.
So we are not only to buddy up with the heretics and pretend that they are not heretics or dangerous to our soul but the One, True Church herself needs “renewal” and “reform” which is translated “redefining” and “revolution”.
When such actions are undertaken prudently
How can endangering your soul be done prudently?
What is the purpose of patiently endangering your soul?
by the Catholic faithful, with the attentive guidance of their bishops,
This is true, since this time the bishops have attentively guided us in the endangerment of our souls
they promote justice and truth, concord and collaboration, as well as the spirit of brotherly love and unity.
Saint John tells us to avoid the heretic.
This is the way that, when the obstacles to perfect ecclesiastical communion have been gradually overcome,
by redefining the Catholic Church into some sort of vague anomaly
all Christians will at last, in a common celebration of the Eucharist, be gathered into the one and only Church in that unity which Christ bestowed on His Church from the beginning. We believe that this unity subsists
Satan’s key term to redefine the Church and lead millions astray in one fell swoop...and let us not forget who introduced that term at Vatican II. Yes, that's right: Joseph Ratzinger!
in the Catholic Church as something she can never lose, and we hope that it will continue to increase until the end of time.
Was not the Roman Catholic Church as united as it could be from the start? Be definition there cannot be disunion within the Roman Catholic Church so why would this unity continue to increase for 2000 years?
However, it is evident that, when individuals wish for full Catholic communion, their preparation and reconciliation is an undertaking which of its nature is distinct from ecumenical action.
Ecumenism is when Catholics pretend that Catholicism is not Catholic but if someone is willing to convert to the Catholic Faith we can stop watering that Faith down!
But there is no opposition between the two, since both proceed from the marvelous ways of God.
In one instance we pretend that there are no significant distinctions between Catholicism and the other faiths and in the other instance we are allowed to tell the complete truth about the one, true faith.
Catholics, in their ecumenical work, must assuredly be concerned for their separated brethren, praying for them, keeping them informed about the Church, making the first approaches toward them.
Now we are not allowed to approach Greeks or Jews, and, of course, regarding Muslims, by Benedict XVI's own admission, there is no answer to.
But their primary duty is to make a careful and honest appraisal of whatever needs to be done or renewed in the Catholic
If you don’t want to convert it is our fault because we have been so bad throughout history; our culpa, especially the medieval Church.

and faithfully to the teachings and institutions which have come to it from Christ through the Apostles.
For although the Catholic Church has been endowed with all divinely revealed truth and with all means of grace, yet its members fail to live by them with all the fervor that they should, so that the radiance of the Church's image is less clear (less clear before or after we protestantized it?) in the eyes of our separated brethren and of the world at large, and the growth of God's kingdom is delayed. All Catholics must therefore aim at Christian perfection (24 Cf. Iac. 1, 4; Rom. 12, 1-) and, each according to his station, play his part that the Church may daily be more purified and renewed.
Notice how since the time of this document the newchurch leaders have done everything possible to make the Church more perfect and purified through the desecration of her sanctuaries, sacraments, liturgy and faith.
For the Church must bear in her own body the humility and dying of Jesus (25 Cf. 2 Cor. 4, 10, Phil. 2, 5-8) against the day when Christ will present her to Himself in all her glory without spot or wrinkle (26 Cf. Eph. 5: 27)
A lot will have to happen in the new Church before that would happen.
All in the Church must preserve unity in essentials. But let all, according to the gifts they have received enjoy a proper freedom, in their various forms of spiritual life and discipline, in their different liturgical rites, and even in their theological elaborations of revealed truth. In all things let charity prevail. If they are true to this course of action, they will be giving ever better expression to the authentic catholicity and apostolicity of the Church.
Has the Hierarchy that claims to be Catholic done this?
On the other hand, Catholics must gladly acknowledge and esteem the truly Christian endowments from our common heritage which are to be found among our separated brethren.
His Holiness Pius XII and all the Catholic Popes who spoke to the issue did not 'esteem' the heretics for they knew very well how that would mislead the heretics and the Catholics and cause great confusion which is what we are living with now.
It is right and salutary to recognize the riches of Christ and virtuous works in the lives of others
Heretics! If you are going to pretend you are Catholic why not simply state that they must return to the Church Christ founded?
who are bearing witness to Christ, sometimes even to the shedding of their blood. For God is always wonderful in His works and worthy of all praise.
Nor should we forget that anything wrought by the grace of the Holy Spirit in the hearts of our separated brethren (Heretics) can be a help to our own edification.
Right! Heretics are a great example to Catholics. Please!

Only Catholicism is TRULY Christian in every sense of the word.

Non Catholic “Christians” are heretics and that is MOST contrary to the faith.
indeed, it can always bring a deeper realization (Heresy mixed with truth) of the mystery of Christ and the Church.
Nevertheless, the divisions among Christians prevent the Church from attaining the fullness of catholicity
A reminder to look for any form of this word in future Church documents and all post-conciliar writings – its use will become increasingly rarer in future documents
proper to her, in those of her sons who, though attached to her by Baptism, are yet separated from full communion with her. Furthermore, the Church herself finds it more difficult to express in actual life her full catholicity in all her bearings.
This >Sacred Council< (Satan) is gratified to note that the participation by the faithful in ecumenical work is growing daily. >It< Lucifer commends this work to the bishops everywhere in the world to be vigorously stimulated by them and guided with prudence.
As we can see over the last 40 plus years, prudence has taken a holiday and... Though I had not intended to cut this short so soon, I just can't stomach such lies. We all know the evil one does not like the fact the good John Gregory asked me to read between the lines for the readers and he's targeted my weak stomach which cannot swallow the devil's half truths. How could so many have fallen for this heresy being passed off as legitimate Catholic thought. Catholic it definitely is not. Again, I must cut it short or else I will... excuse me.
