@vlgn11 @WashArchbishop So I guess a Pope who persecutes those who worship as their Church did for 500 years & places a pagan idol on the altar is not schismatic?

In his letter today, @Pontifex says it "amazes me" that a Catholic wld not accept "the legitimacy of Vatican II"--to which I say: "I am personally opposed to Vatican II, but I wld never impose my personal opinion on other Catholics." Wonder how things wld be if V2 never happened?
