Jurisdiction: Epikeia and Papal Mandates

15369780398_51b40b339f_zQuotes on Jurisdiction: ‘Necessity makes licit what is illicit.’ Pope Gregory IX ‘It is true that one sins against the rule who adheres to the letter and leaves aside the spirit’ Pope Boniface XIII ‘The HIGHEST LAW is the SALVATION of Souls’ Pope Pius X Canon 2261.2-3, 1917 Code of Canon Law: “… The Faithful may for any just cause ask The Sacraments or Sacramentals of one who is excommunicated, ESPECIALLY, IF there is no one else to give them (c. 2261.2). But from an excommunicated vitandus or one against whom there is a declaratory or condemnatory sentence, The Faithful may only in danger of death ask for SACRAMENTAL ABSOLUTION according to canons 882, 2252, and also for other Sacraments and Sacramentals in case there is no one else to administer them (c. 2261.3).” Canon 2314.1, 1917 Code of Canon Law: “All APOSTATES from The Christian Faith and every HERETIC or SCHISMATIC: 1. Incur by that fact excommunication.”

It is important to understand that in the present circumstances [i.e.: The FULFILLMENT of The Prophecy of The Great Apostasy] these priests are in fact provided with jurisdiction by The Church, and that their function is entirely licit. The principle involved is enshrined in Canon Law under The Title of Epikeia. Yet these priests continue to hear confession and to administer The Sacraments. How can they do this without violating The Laws or The Church? The answer stems from the principle that ***[[[The SUPREME LAW of The Church is the SALVATION of Souls.]]]*** Canon laws derive from two sources. The first is The Divine Law which can never be violated. The second is The Law of The Church which has as its immediate aim the SAFEGUARDING of The Divine Law and as its ULTIMATE AIM the SALVATION of souls. Divine Law was established by Our Lord and The Apostles, while the remainder of Canon Law was established by The Hierarchy of The Church. Now, the canonical rules which regulate the normal exercise of sacerdotal functions are always subject and subordinated to the Divine Law which remains supreme. When the formal observation or the ecclesiastical law impedes or acts against the fulfilment of the divine law, it is the latter which must prevail. As St. Thomas Aquinas says, ‘The Power of Jurisdiction is not granted a man for his own benefit, but for the good of the people and for The Glory of God’ and further, ‘since necessity knows no law, in cases of NECESSITY The Ordinance of The Church does NOT hinder’ (Summa, Suppl. Q. 8, Art. 5 and 6).

As of Nov. 19 1969 the papacy came to an end. It was on this day Paul VI Refuted  the warnings of the Fathers, Bishops and the Cardinal Ottaviani Intervention.

Now even though sspx continued calling them popes,  they did not accept their right to rule over the Church knowing that popes can not bind heresy. What Traditionalists are under is called Epikeia as stated above.. Which means that no law can bind over that which is necessary for the salvation of souls. As a result the Church grants pastoral jurisdiction for holy orders.
A Papal Mandate was never the law from the beginning. ” Receive thy the Holy Ghost.” When we had the western schism (30 years) we had three popes. One true one and the other two were anti-popes. All three did their own consecrations and all these consecrations were held valid and licit after it was over and they remained in the Church. The sooner we stop fighting among ourselves and get the world ready for the Coming of the Lord the better off we will all be.  In Christ, Joseph
