“Anything that can bring about a mutual knowledge and respect between religions is a good thing.”
Schneider with his modernist co-religionists
"Let us be grateful to God that Pope Francis has not spoken in the manner that was expected by the media. Up to now, he expresses in all his official homilies the beautiful Catholic doctrine."
Bp. Schneider, 30 May 2014
Athanasius Schneider wrote in his 2013 article,
"In an interreligious meeting in Kazakhstan, in which I participated, we spoke about the most holy realities of each religion. An Imam said, that for the Muslims the holiest of holy is the book of the Koran in Arabic l and he stressed saying: it would be an act of sacrilege when somebody will dare to touch the Arabic Koran with unwashed hands. Hearing this statement I suddenly was thinking about the scenes of the reception of Holy Communion in hand and without almost any clear sacral sign and surely without immediately preceding washing of the hands, which is the case in the vast majority of the Catholic churches all around the world. "
A quote from an interview he granted to a French newspaper, Présent, January 10, 2015,
"It is the Vatican II Council that gave a wider understanding of the Mystery of the Church according to the Teaching of the Fathers of the Church […]. Thus, the Church has been seen as “a people made one with the unity of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit” (Lumen Gentium 4) "
In a Latin Mass Magazine interview,
"Ecumenism is necessary in order to be in contact with our separated brethren and in order to love them. From the depth of the challenge offered to us by the new paganism, we may and we must collaborate with non-Catholics who seriously wish to defend the revealed Divine Truth and the Natural Law that God created."
Here's what he said at a conference for bishops in Rome on 17 December 2010,
"Taking account of the experience of several decades since then, of interpretations doctrinally and pastorally confused, and contrary to the continuity, over two millennia, of doctrine and prayer of the faith, the necessity and the urgency rise for a specific and authoritative intervention by the pontifical Magisterium for an authentic interpretation of the conciliar texts with completions and doctrinal clarifications: a type of “Syllabus errorum circa interpretationem Concilii Vaticani II.” There is need for a new Syllabus, this time directed not so much against errors coming from outside the Church, but against errors spread within the Church on the part of those who maintain a thesis of discontinuity and rupture with its doctrinal, liturgical, and pastoral application. Such a Syllabus would consist of two parts: a part marking errors and a positive part with propositions of doctrinal clarification, completion, and precision."
Does he not understand he is one of the errors within of which he speaks?
