PUBLIC USE OF THE BOOK
"To the Priests,
Our Lady's Beloved Sons"
Communique from Fr. Laurent Larroque
A Sicilian priest, in contestation against the Catholic Church, is using the name of the Marian Movement of Priests and the book "To Priests, Our Lady's Beloved Sons", the spiritual patrimony of this Movement, for his own ends of rebelling against the Church.
The Marian Movement of Priests takes a clear stand against this attitude and does not accept the assertions that this priest has made by taking passages out of context from this book, without knowing the Marian spirituality of this Movement which he is presenting. In no way does this spirit of rebellion go along with the spirit of Mary.
We firmly reiterate the three characteristic commitments of our Movement:
1) Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary;
2) union with the Pope and the Church united with him;
3) bringing souls to devotion to Mary.
These three commitments are reflected in the Act of Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary which for 46 years has been repeated all over the world by many members of the Hierarchy, by hundreds of thousands of priests and by millions of the faithful, especially regarding fidelity to the Pope.
“Above all, we wish to be united with the Holy Father and the hierarchy, firmly adhering to all their directives, so as thus to set up a barrier to the growing confrontation directed against the Magisterium, that threatens the very foundation of the Church. Under your maternal protection, we want moreover to be apostles of this sorely needed unity of prayer and love for the Pope, on whom we invoke your special protection.” (from the Act of Consecration)
The legitimate Pope is Pope Francis. A famous dream of Don Bosco shows us the Church as a large boat during a storm and in the midst of its enemies, always guided by the Pope who anchors the Church to two large pillars in the midst of the sea: the Eucharist, “Salus credentium,” and Mary, “auxilium christianorum.” He who separates himself from these three “criteria of catholicity” strays away from catholicity and has made himself unworthy of speaking, not only in the name of a Movement and of a Book that he does not fully comprehend, but even in the name of the Church itself.
