CSC 1204: How to interact with sick & suffering

Sec 1: Family Relations

August, 2017


My dad died last year on 30 Aug. He was Novus Ordo. My mom is in a nursing home and in another state from me. I know she will be remembering the day and be upset and suffering emotionally. Is it permitted for me to call her on the 30th to give her comfort or will I be sinning? Mom is currently Novus Ordo. If a sin, what should I do or say if mom calls me instead of me calling her?

Thanks so much.



MHFM:: No, you should not call her on the day. If she calls you, you should charitably inform her again of the necessity to leave the Novus Ordo and embrace the traditional Catholic faith.

The footnotes to this section of the CSC reads:

* Sedevacantists do not call their elderly mothers in nursing homes on their birthdays, especially if they are suffering emotionally. Not comforting the afflicted or showing compassion, love, or any sort of mercy compounds their suffering all the more which is desired…especially because the person is your mother.

** Showing love towards people who do not belong to the Sedevacantist church is a mortal sin against the Sedevacantist faith and will surely damn one in hell. Sedevacantists are instructed not to help the poor, hungry, homeless, or sick if they are heretics under pain of eternal damnation. (CSC 344, 345)

*** Contrary to feeling remorse or guilt for the suffering of others, Sedevacantists ought to delight in it because those who suffer are getting what they deserve. (CSC 980,982)

**** The following language should be used in all correspondences with obstinate heretics and sinners who suffer: “Out of charity I must tell you that you deserve to suffer because you’re a wicked lying reprobate from hell. Be assured of my prayers.” (CSC 102)
