To be a member of the Catholic Church, we must have the virtue of faith, be baptized, and submit to the Roman Catholic Hierarchy.
Heresy destroys one's membership in the Catholic Church. Even if we commit many mortal sins, as long we retain the faith, we are still a member of the Catholic Church and are attached to Christ in a sense. However, if we destroy the faith through heresy, then we lose all attachment to Christ and His Church.
The modernism which has come about through Vatican II is a substantial alteration of the Catholic Church's teaching, and is heresy. Therefore, if we adhere to the heresies of Vatican II, we commit the sin of heresy in an objective sense. This would put us outside of the Church.
If we take the position that Vatican II is a substantial change of the Catholic faith, then we are necessarily bound to take the position that the Novus Ordo is a false hierarchy. Otherwise, we must conclude that heretics are members of the Church and lead the Church. And that would mean God does not protect his Church from error, which too is a heresy.
Therefore, only one explanation exists. Listen in as Bishop Donald Sanborn explores this issue in his thorough and succinct manner.
